Hey, its my first time here and I would love to share this for others to be aware that they are everywhere and can appear at any time.
This particular experience occurred last August of this year in our own living room. Our living room had an airconditioning unit hence my sister and I would sometimes sleep there with folding mattresses while the door to my parents bedroom is to be left opened-to save electricity and stuff. It happened when I was the only one awake at 1 am to finish my project in programming. I was about done when something caught my eye in the distance. It- they were small and were moving. But I ignored it because maybe it was just insects. I closed my laptop and turned off the light and went to the sofa. It was quite creepy in my perspective because the lights were out and we had high ceilings, plus the transparent sliding door- to separate the living room and the dining area, was very clear to my eyesight. It was still relaxing because of the soft comforters with the blasting cold air from above.
I closed my eyes, but after a few minutes I was awoken by the sound of laughter- from little people. I can distinguish it because of their different pitch. It stopped and I continued to sleep. But the next thing, I was awoken by something or someone gently placed his hands to my neck, like it was choking me. I saw three black people, laughing. I finally caught a grip and they vanished.
I told my mom the next day and she too had the same experience a long time ago. She said that they are little people (Elves/duendes) residing in our house. They brought good charms to our family way before I was born. Like one time, my mom found a folded 1000-peso bill inside the toilet bowl. Yes they were the reasons to my family's success, but they were also mischievous. Loving to play, especially when the people in the house are about to sleep.
