My girlfriend and I were sleeping the other night. My girlfriend is prone to nightmares, however usually when I tell her its ok it was a dream she drifts back to sleep. However the other night was very different. I was awoken by a really loud scream coming from my girlfriend, as I could see her sitting up in the bed. I went to calm her but what I saw next did the opposite of calming her.
I saw a figure crouched over the both of us and I let out a huge scream myself. My girlfriend on hearing me scream jumped out of the bed and went to turn the main light on. My girlfriend wears pretty strong prescription glasses and when she turned the light on I saw the figure in more detail. I was swiping like a mad man to make sure it didn't come near her, as initially I thought it was a thief in our room as you hear stories. Even with the light on I could see it, it was gray that's about as much as I can recall. I was very scared, however I got from it was surprised I could see it? My girlfriend could not as was scared and no glasses on however she said she was dreaming of spiders all over the bed and that's what caused the initial screams. She did then say it was like someone was scratching her arm.
I at this stage had jumped out of the bed and turned around to confront whatever was in the bed it had disappeared. My heart was racing so fast I thought it was going to explode. I could not sleep for the entire night and the feeling was eerie, you know when the hairs on the back of your neck stand up. I was getting this for a long time after the event. When I spoke with girlfriend in the morning she thought I was over reacting and said she must have scarred me into thinking of the figure. I can say hand on heart I know what I saw while awake and it was a horrible feeling.
My girlfriend and I started to talk about weird things that have happened in the apartment. One night my girlfriend was asleep in the spare room as I was snoring too loud, she said she had the strangest dream that two men came into the room and told her to come with them, that she was dead, she recall they were not scary but the dream was so vivid.
We also have come home to find pictures on the ground, albeit the wall plugs still firmly in the wall, as if someone had thrown them on the floor. I also seem to get odd feelings when on my own; the hairs will stand up on the back of my neck. I can feel a presence in the room but can't see anything out of the norm.
I have talked with friends and they have advised getting a priest over to bless the apartment. The apartment block is located near a grave yard, an old one.
I am sure what I saw was a ghost/spirit good or bad I don't know and when I spoke with my mam about it. She re-called when I was much younger I was always talking about weird dreams. My parents would have to ask my older brother to pretend to go to bed with me, until I fell asleep. I recall also when younger weird stuff happening all the time, like the bedroom door opening and closing or just the handle going up and down, hearing people walking up the stairs and then would run out to see and no-one was there.
I don't know it may be me that needs to be blessed as I am sure what I saw defies logical thinking?
