I have been reading the stories that people regularly publish on this website for several years but today I decided to register to also tell my own story. I actually have several stories of supernatural phenomena that I have experienced throughout my life but none of those stories have I ever told anyone. The fact that I decided to tell the following story on this page is because I need to know if anyone else has had this type of experience.
The incident happened exactly on the night of September 17, 2009. I remember it perfectly because that is the date I joined the army. That night I fell asleep on the couch in the living room of the family home where I lived at the time, ready to show up the next day at the meeting place where the recruitment was taking place.
I don't know how long I had been sleeping when something or someone woke me up in the middle of the night. Just as I opened my eyes someone ran quickly away into the darkness. I could clearly hear the sound of footsteps and the mischievous laughter of a child. Judging by the laughter it was a child of about three to five years old. I couldn't see anything at all because the entire house was in darkness due to a power outage.
I think that boy or whatever he was had been in the living room with me the whole time until I woke up or he decided to wake me up and then ran away. I have to clarify that there were no children living in the family home at the time and the front door was locked from the inside. There is also no chance that a small child will sneak into the house at midnight and start running around in the middle of complete darkness.
I didn't feel any kind of fear, this is the strangest thing about this incident. Rather, I was intrigued. I didn't feel the slightest sense of danger. Actually I could have continued sleeping peacefully but I was too curious to know what was really happening so I used the light of my mobile phone and scanned the whole house but couldn't find any children anywhere.
This incident has never, ever been repeated but I remain deeply intrigued and obviously have questions that need answers. Although I guess I will never be able to know what really happened that night. This is an incident that I have kept secret for fourteen years without deciding to tell anyone.
Thank you for reading.
