It happened when I was around 9 years old. One night, I decided to sleep in my living room couch after growing tired of my bed. Tucking myself in, I fell asleep. After a few hours, I awoke. I turned my head to check the time and after adjusting my vision to the dark, I could see it was 1:00 A.M. As I turned my head to go back to sleep, I suddenly froze and the feeling of fear engulfed me. I could not move nor could I speak. In front of me, was this very dark cloaked figure what appeared to be floating in my hallway. The figure was darker than the hallway.
Back and forth, the figure would float into my brothers' room (the door to my brothers' room was closed) and past my parent's room. I got the feeling that the figure did not want me to notify anyone that he was present at the moment.
Diagram of what happened:
After floating a couple of times, I was finally able to move and hid my head under the covers until I dozed off. The oddest part about this experience was the fact the cloaked figure held a scythe.
To this day 10 years later, I cannot explain exactly what I saw. I do not know if I saw the cloaked Shadow Person or the Grim Reaper. I have trouble talking about this experience in the fear of not being believed and because it scares me. I wouldn't blame anyone for not believing me especially after mentioning the Grim, but it really happened and I was truly awake. If anyone can help me, I am open for suggestions.
