After being on this site for a few months (without actually being a member) I felt like I had to get this story off of my chest. This happened about two years ago around Christmas time, when I was eleven, and I was still getting used to the new house we where living in.
It was storming that night, a rare thing to happen around where I live, and it didn't bother me one bit, it would always storm where I used to live. It was around midnight and I was lying in my full sized bed, on top of the covers and I was staring at my ceiling. To the right of me was my entertainment area, to my left, a book shelf. I had two large windows next to each other behind me and a vanity in front, on the left of the vanity was a door, the door to the hall way was open and the room across from mine was my mom's sewing room, the window faced me. I listened to the rain hit my window, I remember feeling a warmth and joy, but suddenly I felt cold and a strange urge to look up, so I did. I put on my glasses that where next to me and I propped my self up on my elbows.
I could see a tall male shaped figure walking down the hall, he was wispy, like smoke, and dark, really, really, dark. His long arms moved limply as he walked slowly in long strides, when he was perfectly in line with my door way, he turned and just stayed there, watching me with his dark red eyes.
I couldn't breathe or move, I wasn't scared but I had no control over my body. Lightning struck and he seemed to absorb the light that came from the window behind him. My body was forced to lie back down, then I felt normal again, I sat up quickly and he was gone, I got up quickly and searched my house, no one was awake. Officially freaked out of my eleven year old mind I attempted to go back to sleep, hiding my self with blankets and pillows, I couldn't sleep that night, and I kept hearing a deep raspy male voice call my name, it called it quietly, but it seemed to eco around my room.
Even now I still see a shadow like him in corners of my room, but it doesn't scare me as much as it did then. It seems like he wants something but I just don't know any more.
