Before I begin with my story, here is my background. I am a female teenager in Austin, Texas. I have read many stories about ghosts and ghostly experiences. I enjoy folklore about mystical creatures and since the age of seven I have been awaiting with one such encounter. And I finally had one. It might not be the scariest but it was scary for me.
Some time around ten or eleven I went up the steps to my bedroom and laid down in bed without locking my bedroom door. As I started to dose off I heard this noise in my room like the sound of a big dog sniffing the ground. And I saw eyes. I quickly pulled the covers over my head and huddled in my bed until I felt safe. I fell asleep.
In the following weeks after I didn't forget to lock my door until that thursday. I left my door unlocked and when I fell asleep, I was woken to my bed shaking. I couldn't move at all. I was paralyzed with fear and didn't sleep at all that night, just laid in bed until morning. I was so afraid that I couldn't sleep for a few weeks after that day.
I still don't know what was happening but I can't sleep unless my bedroom door is locked and my closet door is closed.
So that is my story, sorry that it is stupid.
Goodbye and goodnight,
