This might get long so get comfortable, it happened when I was 5 years old which is really young I know but I remember most of the details like it was a few days ago. Till I was 6 we lived with my grandmother in a old 2 storey school house, which was converted into a home in the 1960's,from what I've been told it also apparently belonged to a Indian tribe before that not too sure on the details of that.
My room was on the second floor of the house, which was across the hall from my grandmothers, and my room no matter the time of season you could always see the moon from the way the windows were placed. I use to wake up seeing shadows and figments moving around my room I was a pretty brave kid so I usually just ignored them and went back to sleep, their was always this one set of shadows I saw that scared me pretty good they were always at the right side of my bed along the wall, so I'd slide out the left and to my grandmothers room and get into bed with her.
Well one night I remember waking up to something watching me so I rolled over and looked to see the set of shadows that scared me, so I did the usual and went to my grandmother's room. I remember going to sleep and waking up at 345am my grandmothers clock was on my side of the bed an old square digital alarm black in colour, to see this green glowing thing floating above me I can't remember what we talked about for the life of me but I know we talked for a while.
I remember what he looked like to this day the simplest way to describe him is the gremlin off the old loony toon cartoons, now I know your going to say I got it from those, but at the time we didn't get those all we had was a antenna all my shows were from pbs, it wasn't until later when we moved and got cable did I see those shows and wasn't until I was 13 did I make a connection to that.
I remember having a conversation and him disappearing into the shadows then I went to sleep. Didn't cross my mind until I saw that cartoon again when I was older and was into the paranormal. After that run in though the shadows never scared me I always felt comfortable in them and still do to this day, I prefer night time over day. I'm in the US ARMY currently and have had a lot of weird things happen to me over the years that I think is linked to this thing and when I was a kid would, love some help on trying to figure this all out feel free to email me
