This story happens a few years ago when I was about 13 years old. My parents had separated a few years before and they now live in separate houses.
I had always experienced something weird in my dad's new house. I am going to talk about one of the weirdest and most fascinating ones I have had.
My dad always told my younger brother and I to leave our bedroom door open. That rule didn't change when we moved. There are only two bedrooms in the house so I got my own room. Of course I left the door open.
Around this age I experienced something called sleep paralysis. For the people who don't know what that is, it is when I am about to go to sleep my entire body becomes paralyzed but I am still awake. When I first went through this it scared me because I was still little but I had gotten used to it at this point in time.
Thinking back I have realized that this occurrence only started happening when we moved and it only happened at my dad's house. It also stopped happening at my dad's house and this is where the story begins.
I always slept facing the wall. My body had gone into sleep paralysis again but as usual I just brushed it off. My door of course was wide open. Sometime after I became paralyzed I heard footsteps out in the living room. The footsteps came right into my room, someone jumped up on my bed and started shaking me. I was scared because not only could I not see what was going on but I was paralyzed as well. I used all of the strength I could muster and I was finally able to turn around. When I did there was nothing there.
After that I had never experienced sleep paralysis again. At first I believed that it was just my imagination because I was young but it felt too real. I also believe that this someone was a child because it felt way to small to be an adult. I have thought of it being my brother since he would have been the right size but not only was he in bed but I never heard the being leave, it just disappeared.
I told my mom of this experience and she thinks that this ghost tried to help me. Could the ghost have been trying to help? Could this have just been my imagination?
