I live with my parents here in Baguio City.
Once upon a time I did not believe in ghost or ghostly apparitions. I love horror or ghost movies especially those that are made in Japan, Thailand and China for these countries really are hit makers when it comes to horror films but this year (2009) something happened that really gave me the creeps, though it may not be that scary it changed my beliefs for life.
Without fail I am woken up at 3:00 in the morning by a feeling of someone sitting beside me. I'm the kind of person who sleeps early (or that's what I thought) I am usually asleep by 9:00pm and awake by 5:00 or 6:00 in the morning. However, these past three months something has been waking me up at 3:00 in the morning.
I was in bed when I first felt this thing or "presence" as my friends call it. I felt something cold next to my feet. First I ignored it because I had opened the windows before I went to bed. It was after about 10 to 15 minutes when I started wondered why my feet were the only part of my body that was feeling cold. I got scared because it was really odd that my feet were so cold, but I felt like there was someone else in the room staring at me. As frightened as I was, I jumped out of bed and ran to switch on the lights, and saw no one else in the room with me. My first thought was I should stop watching horror films. I returned to sleep with the lights on (just in case). It turned out that I was wrong these events happened repeatedly (and take note some nights that it happened my windows were closed).
I started to freak out (due to lack of sleep and fear). I didn't know that this was nothing compared to what happened next.
I was in deep slumber when something cold woke me up, it was like someone was sitting on my bed again, but I did not dare open my eyes to see what is it. Then it happened, a hand started caressing my face and messing my hair, the way mothers would do to their babies or little kids. I was shocked and fear took over me, I couldn't move, the hands went on with what they were doing. I tried to shout but I could not, it was as if something was preventing me from doing so. I didn't open my eyes I guess I didn't have the guts to for fear of what I would see. I spoke in my mind for it to stop I said: "please leave me alone!", I repeated it for about 3 times but the hands won't stop, when I realized that I could utter a sound I started shouting: mommy! Mommy! Mommy! (It's quite awkward for an 18 year old to do so) in an instance the hands stopped, my brother who was still awake at that time darted into my room and switched on the lights
I told him what happened, he then looked at me. I thought he wouldn't believe me but he told me something that scared me. He said he had the same experience when he was 16 years old but the difference is he opened his eyes and saw a woman dressed in a white cloak.
We have decided not to tell our parents what happened but I'll never ever sleep in my room alone again.
