For those who have been following this whole ordeal, this is the same "man" that has been coming and going out of my house and my life. For those who are scratching their heads, feel free to catch up with my previous stories. The "man" has been quiet for some time now and I thought nothing of it until last night, Jan. 7, 2015.
I had a bad day at work and wanted nothing more than to come home and do nothing. I came home, ate, played MTG with my boyfriend and his friend, and then by the time it hit 10pm I was tired. So I got ready for bed and crawled into it. I'm laying in bed trying to fall asleep and at first everything seems fine. My boyfriend's mother is sound asleep in the next room while my boyfriend, his brother, and their friends are in the basement. The only bathrooms I do have are upstairs; however, if the guys need to use it, they just go outside. It's relevant why I told you this, no worries.
As I was saying, I was falling asleep when I heard footsteps in the hallway. I'm thinking it's one of the guys and then continue going to sleep. But the footsteps get louder and louder to the point they're coming from my room, where I am sleeping. Now it is cold outside, almost 12 degrees F. But it was even colder once the footsteps sounded like they were in my room. Now I'm in a big, thick blanket that was keeping me warm and whatever this was, was making that not even work. That bad feeling was rising up inside me, which normally let's me know it's "him" and I can't ignore it anymore. I get the courage to open my eyes and of course, no one is there. I walk out of the room and get a drink, check the thermostat, which is at 70 degrees F and hasn't changed. Should at least be comfortable correct? Nope.
I check my window and it's sealed shut; I check windows near my room, still closed. Ultimately I have decided I just need to go back to sleep. As I am trying to the footsteps come back into my room, and still no one is in my room, and the TV turns on by itself. Now this is puzzling. We have Verizon and with the TV you have to turn the TV on and then some black screen comes up that says you push the menu button to get the feed. Well the feed was on, meaning that whatever just turned the TV on pressed both buttons. Now this cold spot is coming right on my cheek and by now my eyes are sealed shut because I have this feeling that it's going to be right in front of me and I am going to die. [Not really die but you know, I can be a scardy cat.]
Some minutes pass and finally I open my eyes and no one is there, again. I told myself that I just need to sleep and everything will be ok. My plan starts working and after awhile I am in that state where you're falling sleep and you're so close to being asleep but you're not there yet. While in that state I hear the "man" yell in my ear "HEY!" Of course this jolted me awake and I looked to see who was there, no one. I walk downstairs and asked if anyone just yelled and they said no. I wouldn't have heard them regardless but I still wanted to be sure. I told the "man" to knock it off and then it stopped for the night. Really? When I am trying to sleep you need my attention?
