My name is Katie and I am new to this site. I am 29 years old.
I have been reading stories for a while tonight and decided to start posting some of my own... Enjoy
This is the first experience I have had-
At the age of 6, I was spending the night at my grandparent's home; something my brother and I did often. We slept in the small room next to the main bedroom. (Where my grandparent's slept).
Falling asleep was easy that night after my prayers were said. Sleeping on my back, I don't know exactly how long I was asleep for... But I was awoken by a hard knock on my forehead. Laying there with my eyes closed I was scared, it hurt and I felt the tears well up in my eyes. Thinking it was a nightmare, eyes still closed tight it happened again. This time I flung my eyes open and sat up, no one was there. Crawling to the foot of my bed I looked over the bed frame to check the floor were my brother would always lie when he was there. But I forgot he had not spent the night this particular night. So the thought of him being the typical mean brother flew out the window, I heard my Grandparent's snoring in their room and curled back up into bed and cried myself to sleep.
To this day I will not lay on my back to sleep.
