It was days ago; the event took place outside my apartment bathroom door. I was sitting on the toilet, sorry to say, and I was thinking as people often do about random thoughts, such as planning to start a new life, working harder at my job, talking to someone I have not seen in some time, basic daydreaming. It was about 3:00 am in the morning, being as how I am young and I was off work the next day I stayed up to watch movies and think of what plans I have into tomorrow. As I was sitting there with my mind off in the distance my eyes zoned out on an old robe hung from the wall in front of me. I then felt a slight chill to my body, it happens every so often but I only take notice, it never seemed odd.
When I was finished taking care of my business I waited a few more seconds to bare my thoughts. I heard motion coming from down my hallway, then a swift sound of wind. My door knob, I kid you not, started to slowly move, not back and fourth, but in and out like this door was being opened. Whatever was on the other side could not turn the knob first. I halted, all thoughts, all actions, and my eyes grew wider. I stared deep into the door for a moment and shivers when up my spine. Why? Because my roommates are newlyweds and they left the house about an hour before, they went to drink and I knew they were not back. I had little light on in the apartment; I didn't have any fans going I had no noise.
Then I heard some kind of god-awful breathing on the door. It was close, really close to the door, I am not exaggerating this story, it was breathing like it had holes in its lungs, and as though it had no lips, the sound came out like it was breathing and smelling the air at the same time. Surely whatever this was could have entered regardless of a simple wooden door, but it did not. It was huffing and wheezing outside the door. I recall the feeling of this creature moving from a tall standing point to a low lying down at the bottom of the door where it meets the floor.
My heart was racing, my head was pulsating with my heart, and I had a huge adrenaline rush, I could hear my heartbeat, and every other noise around me. I froze, this odd event lasted about ten seconds, not long but enough that I slowly stood up and put my hands in my pockets and waited by the door for several minutes before opening it. When I did finally leave I was nearly in tears with the thought that I was being hunted, and my hands for the first time that I recall were trembling; I could not stop them they were so shaky, it was beyond me.
This apartment I live in has nothing of value or any background stories, this thing has followed me home. I am a hiker, climber, nature photographer, and a caver- I respect what could be a higher being of light, but I am not however religious. I can not explain why this event took place, but I do believe it is still here with me, and it wanted to harm me.
I am in pursuit of this creature now, what do you believe this all means, and what is it?
