To start off, I am 16 years old and live in an old house, that I've always believed to be kind of "haunted". My entire family and I have had little encounters with what we believe to be spirits just like many other people have had, but what happened to me last week definitely beats any other little thing that has happened to me before.
I went to sleep around 10:30 last week because I was exhausted, making it a really early night for me. I woke up after what felt like sleeping for a while, and in my head I was guessing it was around 5am... Whenever I wake up in the middle of the night I look at my phone to check the time. As I opened my eyes to lean over and grab my phone from my side table, out of the glimpse of my eye I thought I saw something floating. I turned my head a little and there I saw my sisters fleece blanket draped, floating... I was confused and shut my eyes without grabbing my phone figuring I was seeing things and when I opened my eyes it would be gone. As I shut my eyes, this weird feeling came over my body... Pretty much felt like I was being sucked out of it. I heard this really strange noise as I felt like I was being "sucked out" which is honestly the only way I can describe it, as stupid as it sounds. I opened my mouth to scream but nothing came out and the sucking just felt stronger. I opened my eyes and as soon as I did I saw a girl floating above my bed. The description I am about to give is after about 3 seconds of looking because as soon as I opened my eyes and confirmed that what I was seeing was really there, even more fear set in and I shut them very quickly.
The girl was around my age, 16-18 years old I would guess. She had long light brown hair with bangs and she was just looking at me, floating above me very close to my face. I'm pretty sure she was wearing a light colored dress. I couldn't tell if she was an evil or good spirit, she was just looking at me with her eyes really wide, I think her mouth was open also but no sound was coming out, unless that was the sound I was hearing as I felt like I was being "sucked out". I remember very clearly her hand was clutched and aimed at me exactly the way it would look as if she was holding a knife, but there was nothing in her hand. After I shut my eyes I started praying in my head because my body was frozen and I was unable to move or speak.
I remember crossing my fingers also because moving my fingers felt like the only thing I could do. As soon as I started praying in my head, I felt myself going back to normal at a pretty good pace. About a minute later I didn't hear any more of the "sucking" noise and I felt completely back in my body. I waited about two or three minutes to open my eyes because I definitely wasn't trying to see that girl again. When I did open my eyes, everything was normal and how it should be. I grabbed my phone and ran for the door and went straight downstairs. As it turns out it was only around 12:15 and I hadn't been sleeping as long as I thought. My sister and Dad were both still up so I explained what had happened as best as I could but I was still beyond scared.
My parents are trying to convince me I was sleeping and that it was just a dream that felt real, but I know the difference between having a dream that feels real and something actually happening. I might have even believed it was a dream if it wasn't for the strong feeling of being "sucked" out of my body.
Needless to say I haven't slept in my room since it happened about a week ago.
