Before I get started, I will share some background information. The location where this happened is my grandparents home that they have owned for 20+ years. Many of my relatives have had unexplainable experiences in this house. My grandfather says the man who owned the house previously died in the home as the result of an accident. People, including myself, have heard footsteps, dishes/glass breaking, things falling, etc.
It's summer time in my small town of Albany, Kentucky and I was about 12 at the time. The county fair was going on, so my parents dropped me off with my friends and my grandparents picked me up later that evening because they lived close to the fairgrounds. I have always been really close with my grandparents and would stay the night with them frequently.
This night, however, I didn't feel very welcome. I was in the guest bedroom which had been built onto the house some years before that I slept in every time I stayed the night. I had gotten ready to go to sleep, so I had the tv on for light, but I had it muted. After tossing and turning for what felt like an eternity, I was still uncomfortable. I turned the bedside lamp on and finally started drifting too sleep.
I was barely conscious, in that half awake/half asleep state. Lying on my right side with both my hands slightly tucked underneath the pillow. All of a sudden, I was jolted awake when I felt something/someone grab a section of my hair and pull, hard. Growing up with a mother who fixed my hair every day, I was not tender headed. When I opened my eyes, although I didn't see anything I was understandably terrified. I was frozen with fear. I really could not move for what felt like eternity.
When I finally got the courage, I tore out of the bedroom and ran down the hallway to my grandparents room. I was crying and frantic telling them what happened. My grandfather got up and got his gun, went through the house room by room thinking someone may have broken in. No one was in the house besides us and there were no signs that anyone had gotten in and left. The next morning I had a huge welt in my hairline where my hair had been pulled so hard the night before.
I have so many other stories to share about this house and other experiences!
