It was late at night when it happened to me. I was freakishly terrified. It was a long day and I was tired. My sister had turned off the lights and went in bed, we share a bed so I slept next to her. For some reason, I couldn't go to sleep. Yeah, I'm afraid of the dark... I put the covers over me even though it was burning hot, my heart was racing, I didn't want to hear anything creepy nor see anything.
I kept quiet, I just laid there. I couldn't take it no more and so I started to turn on my other side. Until, I paused. I couldn't move, or say anything. I gasped for breath and tried to move my feet and fingers. I was completely paralyzed, I opened my eyes and saw this huge black figure standing before me, I blinked a couple of times so I couldn't really make out the details. I opened my mouth, but nothing came out. I tightly closed my eyes as cold chills went down my spine. I could feel it, tears coming out of my eyes. I was so scared, I didn't know what to do. But then I quickly turned almost smacking my arm on my sister but luckily I stopped in time. I looked over to see the figure had turned a pupleish blueish and it disappeared. I wiped my tears, and woke up my sister.
Believe it or not, but this is based on something that did happen. I don't know for sure, but I believe it was trying to MAKE me go to sleep.
