My husband and I had my best friend and her boyfriend over for dinner one Friday night. The guys eventually went into the family room and played Xbox. Our daughter had kept me up the previous night so my best friend and I went into my bedroom to lay down and talk while I fed our daughter. We talked for awhile and I put our daughter into her bassinet next to my bed.
Eventually my friend and I fell asleep. While I was asleep I had a terrible nightmare about my first experience, the 'thing's' voice boomed at me once again he said "WAKE UP OR YOU WILL MISS SEEING ME." Then he ran at me. I woke screaming my husband's name, waking my daughter and friend in the process. I saw the "thing" at the end of the bed, standing and looking as solid as I was, but as before I couldn't see any features just a black figure.
I quickly sat up as it darted into our bathroom. I jumped up and turned the light on to see a very frightened friend and a screaming 2 month old baby. I picked my daughter up and went into the family room crying.
My friend, who told me this later, said that once I left she felt as though she was being watched and didn't dare to move. She also told me that she didn't see the "thing" when she awoke to my screams.
My husband has never seen it. I can't ask my daughter but she hasn't been acting funny, like staring at things that aren't there or anything. Our Labrador barked when I had my first experience, but that's about it. It seems I'm the one it's chosen to torture.
