Some years ago when I was roughly 9 or 10 years old (I'm 28 now), my family and I were visiting relatives for Thanksgiving at their home about 2 hours from where we lived. We had been to their house many times in the past and I never had any sort of paranormal experiences before. There were quite a few relatives staying at their house that weekend so my cousin, who is 2 years older than me, and myself were staying in an extra bedroom in the basement that had a couple of beds in it.
We went to sleep and I woke up at some time in the middle of the night for no reason at all. I sat up and was looking around the room and I noticed a small amount of green light coming into the bedroom from under the closet door across the room. I hadn't noticed any light there before when we were going to bed but it didn't really concern me much at the time. I rolled back over and tried to go back to sleep.
After a few minutes of trying to fall asleep I suddenly got a feeling that someone was watching me or that someone was standing close by. I rolled onto my back and opened my eyes and saw a figure standing over me. At first I just saw a shape but as my eyes adjusted to the darkness I realized it look exactly like my cousin. It sort of annoyed me so I asked him what he wanted. But he didn't say anything or even move, just continued to stand there and stare at me with a blank expression. At that point I got very angry and yelled at him "what do you want!?" and attempted to push him away from me. But my hands passed straight through him. At the same time I heard my cousin grunt and move in his bed across the room so I looked over and saw him still in bed! I looked back to where the figure was standing and it was gone.
Some people say they can feel the presence and feel like the spirit is sad, angry, etc... But I didn't feel any of that, the only thing I felt was terror. I honestly don't know if it wanted to hurt me or anything like that. Needless to say I didn't get much sleep the rest of the night.
When morning came I told my cousin about it and he said he has seen and heard strange things in the house before but nothing like that. I told my aunt and uncle about what I saw the next morning and they didn't really say anything. They just basically shrugged it off. But what was strange is they didn't say that I was imagining things or anything either. They just changed the subject and pretended I didn't say anything.
About a year later my aunt and uncle moved to a different town and that house was demolished. In the years since then my cousin has told me about many paranormal encounters he has had and it makes me wonder if there is some kind of spirit that is attached to him.
If anyone has any input on this please let me know. It has been bothering me for a long time and any ideas would be appreciated!
