I have never submitted a story before. Please bear with me. This incident took place in Sacramento, CA when I was around 22-23 years old, I'm now 30.
At the time I decided to stay a night at my boyfriends (now ex) house because it was getting to late to go home. I was having a really hard time sleeping for some odd reason. So I decided to close my eye thinking, that I would eventually fall asleep. Well, as soon as I had done so, I felt my chest get really heavy and I was having a hard time breathing. I started praying (sleep paralysis has happened to me before) in my head. I believe it was a couple of seconds later it had gotten off of me.
I was really freaked out, but when I was laying there when it was over so I thought, I just happened to look up towards the ceiling, and what I saw I will never forget. It looked to be a black figure facing me with white eyes and it's hands and legs for some odd reason looked like it was stuck to the ceiling but it's body and face was facing me (I don't know if that made sense or not). I don't know how long I must off laid there looking at it and it looking at me. As soon as I was out of shock, I jumped off the bed and ran for the lights. But when I did that I looked to the ceiling again and it was gone.
Till this day, I still can not explain to myself what it was. I have never seen anything like that. But I did have experience with sleep paralysis but have never seen anything when it was over. Can someone please tell me what they think it might be?
Thanks for reading my story! I have many more to come.
