My earliest memory of the paranormal was when I was about 5 years old.
This story is definitely in the top 2 of my very very strange experiences.
My sister (who was 6 at the time) and I were travelling up to Darwin for a couple of days with my dad. We ended up staying in a hotel half way through our journey. I remember this hotel very vividly, it was old and had an awful feel to it.
My sister and I shared a room, they were bunk beds and I was on the top. Being very young I fell asleep quite easily. But I got woken up by the sound of my sisters voice. She was telling someone to go away and that she wasn't scared of it.
I turned over and tried to see who she was talking to.
This is going to sound very strange and I can hardly believe I saw this myself.
I'm an atheist so I don't believe in demons.
But at our window was this creature, picture crossed between a gargoyle and an imp. It was sitting at our window sill staring in at my sister. She was standing at the window staring back at it.
It licked the window with a massive tongue. It then pointed to her and ran its finger along its throat.
My sister is one of the those kids born with this incredible confidence nothing scared her. She just kept taunting it.
That was it for me though I jumped down from my bed and ran into my dads room.
This story took many years for my sister and I to talk about.
I was about 12 swapping stories when she bought this up.
I spent years thinking this was one strange dream or twisted memory.
I think I should mention it wasn't the last time we saw this thing, it followed us around for years.
I honestly don't know what to think of this and I don't expect most people to believe me unless they've experienced something similar.
