I was 17 years old when my mom, step dad, my brothers and myself lived in IL. In the house we lived in strange things would happened
One night we all went out for dinner and we came back around 8 or 9pm. I unlocked the door and I was the only one that saw it. It was so short like a tiny little goblin but was fast as hell. It could be in one room and run into another room in not even a second. The strange thing was it was just crawling on the wall but it looked as if it was in the wall. Just like a picture on a wall moving. I told my family about it they didn't believe me. My step dad didn't believe in such things.
One night I was trying to fall asleep. I usually sleep with my left forearm over on my eyes. As I was trying to fall asleep something touched me on my left side near my armpit. I jumped up and was really freaked out.
A couple nights later I was lying in bed asleep but awake. I was on the borderline. I remember my eyes being open a little and I saw a floating heat above my TV. It took me a couple seconds to realize what it was because I was still almost asleep. When I woke (couple seconds) I jumped so quick to that light switch and turned the lights on. The lights remained on at night for a couple nights.
A couple months later my step dad asked me what the black thing looked like. I described it and he said he saw the same thing. He was in the kitchen making lunch and when he turned his head he caught a glimpse of it running into my brothers room. He thought maybe someone broke in again he doesn't believe it at all. He grabbed the knife and went into the room. He found nothing at all. So after that he admitted it.
