I know you don't publish dreams on this site, but I am only doing so because it is a preface to what I believe was a ghost or demonic entity speaking to me.
What started out as a dream became terrifyingly real... Or so I think. I was around 12 or 13 years old when this happened.
I was having a really freaky dream one night. It consisted of two children, who were each lying in a bed. Seemed harmless at first, they looked like normal kids.
All of the sudden, they manifest themselves into smoky figures, and fly across the tiny room, into the bed of the other. Switching. The room was dark, and I was on the floor watching them from below (they didn't know I was there). All I would see are swooshes of smoke arching over my head.
The children had a leader, and he was evil. He referred to them as "Over Girl" and "Over Boy". I'm assuming the term "over" came from them constantly switching over to the others bed.
The children's responsibility was to hide their leader from whomever he didn't want seeing him.
Soon, the leader is in the room, and from what I can see, he's a big, dark shadowy figure. Not human. Just a floating hooded cloak. I don't remember what was said, but he started talking to Over Girl and Over Boy.
This is what really freaked me out. Over Girl notices my presence, and gets angry. Next, I see this huge stream of smoke charging my way. I felt a huge pressure as she crashed into me. It's as if I "became" her.
This wakes me up, and then I hear a man's voice screaming in my ear, clear as day. As if he was kneeling right beside my bed. "HEY LITTLE OVER GIRL, WANT TO HELP ME HIDE?" He repeats the word "hide" a few times, and it gets louder and louder each time. Almost felt like he was leaning in closer to my ear with each breath.
I was paralyzed. I couldn't move, even though I was wide awake. I didn't dare open my eyes for fear of what I might see standing there. As the voice soon trailed off into nothing, I lay there. Not moving.
It took me a while, but I finally fell back asleep in the exact same position I was awoken in. I was so happy to see my sun-filled room the next morning.
I've never had another experience that vivid, and real again.
I'm not really sure what to classify this as. It was definitely more than just a dream. I know that. The voice was far too real. I can still hear it to this day (I'm 25 now).
Evil spirit? Demon? Not sure. I also recently learned about Sleep Paralysis. That popped into my mind. But looking back, I don't remember ever feeling like something was sitting on top of me, holding me down. I was just frozen with fear.
