This is my first submission. I hope you enjoy it!
This is something that happened to me when I was a small child but something that I remember quite clearly and do not easily accepts to be a concept of my over-active imagination.
I was spending the night at my grandparents' house. It was one of those nights that turned out to be a restless night that I'm sure we all have had at a very young age. After I had been put to bed and all my lights were turned off I tried to drift off to sleep. Something else decided to keep me awake on this particular night...
The night had gotten very late and both of my grandparents were asleep. No matter how hard I tried, I could not get myself to fall asleep. So, after about two hours of rolling around in bed trying to get comfortable, I just gave up and stopped moving. After lying still for a bit, something odd happened.
I had my head on my pillow, and I felt something prodding up against the back of my head from under the pillow. Of course I was a little bit freaked out but I assumed it was nothing (not sure why) and moved my head around a bit. Once I had settled back down I felt the same prodding coming from under the pillow, except it was constant this time. At this point I finally got a little scared and was about to pull my pillow off the bed to see what was causing the poking and prodding. However, before I could move, the prodding stopped. I sat still for about a minute with wide eyes, staring around my room as I now felt like I was not alone. Suddenly I heard a small, impish cackle. It lasted only a few seconds. Maybe it lasted longer... I can't really be sure, because after a few seconds of hearing the little laugh I finally fell asleep.
Weird, huh? The next morning I told my grandparents what had happened. Of course they didn't believe me. Why would they? Maybe it was my imagination... But I just remember it all too vividly. To this day I've only had one more experience at my grandparents' house but it doesn't seem very note-worthy to me. Who knows? I may post it sometime.
Leave me some comments and let me know what you think. More posts coming from me soon.
