Demon In The Corner


My name is Dan and this event happened to me about ten years ago. I have never told anyone about this account, not even my parents. It was roughly 1999. I do not recall what month but my mother just divorced my father about two or three years ago, and since then she met my step dad and we moved in with him. I had a younger brother at the time who was only three. I do not remember what town we were in, but I do remember what state. We were in Pennsylvania and I believe we were about 10 or 15 minutes away from my future step father's parent's house.

So it was a cold and rainy night, my step father was away on a business trip. I was running a fever that night. I slept down on the couch while my mom and my brother were upstairs. My mom left the television on but it was muted. And I went to sleep. At about, I'm guessing 1:00 am, I woke up. But I knew that something was wrong, something was not supposed to be there. I heard a low dark voice say my name. It was weird because it sounded like the source of my name caller was in a tunnel. But I was already afraid of the dark and believe it or not I still am to this day. I can't go to sleep without a source of joy in the room. I listen to Christian music and Christmas music all year long because of my unexpected visitor that night.

So I looked up, still rubbing my eyes and saw this dark figure in the corner. As strange as this may sound, it didn't react to me getting up off the couch. At first I thought it was my step dad. I got nearer, I got this sudden feeling like I shouldn't get closer. But I did any way. I actually reached out to touch it. That's when this thing hissed at me and showed me what it was. The image still haunts me today.

To be continued.

Why are people doubting the story because they don't think demons hiss? Demons can posses people, but they can't hiss? I've read that they growl, so why can't they hiss? Its a very interesting story and i'd love to read the second part.

Ummmmm...i don't think so. This does sound made up to me like you're trying to tell a story rather than your real experience. I thought the stories on this site were supposed to be real experiences? But, in the off chance you are serious... You did say you had a fever so my guess would be that it was an hallucination. I don't see why a demon would just stand in a corner and hiss...

Sorry but regardless of what the other comments say, I have to call this one a hoax for the following reasons-

Your step-father was away on a business trip, yet you thought he was the shadow in the corner?

You don't remember the town you were in, but you know it was 10-15 minutes away from a relatives house?

I cannot imagine why a demon would hiss.

In my opinion, a hoax.

When people are sick they can hallucinate just like a Schizo, I'm not saying this is a lie but it could very well be a possibility.

I have to examine this story logically, being the practical person that I am. Were you fully aware of your surroundings when this incident happen? If you had a fever that night, you may have been hallucinating. A fever can do that to ya. Have you seen this apparition since?

I'm thinking that the fever plus your family break up made you see things... You did say that at first it seemed to be your step father. Maybe you had some negative feelings about him at the time or something.

listening to christmas or christian music all year long is very good. At least they know that you are belong to God. And to show them proof you should not be afraid of them anymore and remember, the Creator is always at your side and will never leave you.

On the story, oh my, this is an episode, I wondered what happen next... When will the next story be out...? Please post it soon, ok?

I would blame it on the fever. I was running a fever last week and I put the "I can't believe its not butter" in the pantry instead of the fridge.

If this is a hoax, then you have a great future in the scarey story industry. I can't wait to see what you have in store for us next.
