This is my first time posting a story on this site and I'm a little weary about doing it so bear with me.
My husband and I moved into my father-in-laws old house about 2 years ago. It sits on around 15 acres of land in Mannford a town of 2,000.
Our house sits a little back from the road and as you walk in the front door (this will all have meaning) we have a large living room. Off to the right and back is our dining area, to the left of that is the kitchen. The kitchen and living room are separated by a wall. When you walk out of the kitchen there is a large hallway that leads back to 2 bedrooms and a bath. Our bedroom is not more than 10 steps from the kitchen.
One night my husband and I were watching television and I had decided it was time for bed. I went to our room and got ready for bed leaving my husband in the living room watching TV (he often falls asleep on the sofa). I have a hard time sleeping with complete silence so I turned on our television in the bedroom and set the sleep timer. Then I couldn't get comfortable at the head of the bed so I put my pillow at the foot of the bed (I don't know why this helps me but it does) and fell asleep.
I'm not sure how long I had been asleep but I woke up feeling like someone was watching me. I looked out into our 'large hallway' and saw a black shadowy figure staring at me. I know it was man because I could see the outline of his hair, his shirt and the fact that he had long boy shorts on. I just stared at him for about a minute or 2 then reached around and turned my bedside lamp on and of course he was gone.
I jumped up out of the bed and ran into the living room to see if my husband was in there. He was fast asleep on the sofa. So I just sat there for a minute trying to get a little composer before I woke him up and asked him to come to bed with me.
I haven't seen the shadow figure since but have often seen a little girl running around my house.
I'm not sure what to think about all this because. My father-in-law had this house built in '97 or '98 so it's not an old house or anything.
