The first time I remember ever having anything strange happening was when I was in third grade. I was in my bed trying to go to sleep when I heard someone coming up the stairs- I know that old houses creak and groan but you could tell this was footsteps- and I was confused because it couldn't have been my parents, they pass my room on the way to theirs, and my only sibling was at a friends house, who was it?
From then on at night I always either heard footsteps, things falling in my room, or my name. It scared me so much; I didn't normally get good nights sleep. I would always have terrible nightmares that usually included either me, or someone I know dying.
One night I woke up at about 11, witch was unusual since I normally slept throughout the whole night; I looked around to see what had woken me. When I saw him I couldn't move or make any sounds. He had thick black hair and tan skin his eyes were a rich brown with a large pupil. When he saw me staring at him he cursed and knocked my lamp over, then he vanished. I immediately felt a weight lifted off of me and could move again.
I didn't see him for several more years, but then one day when I was in about 5th grade my friend and I were in the room sitting on my bed and talking. Then all of a suddenly a chilling presence came over the room. My friend noticed it too.
We looked around for the source of the cause, the air vent was shut and so were the windows. We looked around, and then suddenly, her face grew pale. I asked her what was wrong, she didn't answer me. Then I looked at what she was seeing. A stuffed tiger on my dresser was staring right at us. Then I felt the paralysis I had a few years earlier. The eyes were the exact color the mans had been, and when the weight lifted the eyes turned their normal color of yellow.
I moved into another bedroom in the house and nothing has happened to me, but the other day I went in there to read because it was quiet and the presence filled the room again. I ran out of the room before I could become immobile, but is it possible the spirit is back?
