Bedtime Ghost

Posted on June 19, 2008

This is a true story so please believe me. I’m only 13 but it is a TRUE story. It is weird but my mum felt it too so you can decide if you believe me or not.

It all started in my old house in Kingstanding. I was only about 5 when the whole thing started and it carried on till I was about 8 years old. It used to scare me so much that one night I even wet myself.

One night it was about 11:00 and I was fast asleep. It was cold outside but the central heating was on so it was warm in my room. When suddenly it went really cold all of a sudden. It felt as though someone was rocking my bed, not fiercely but gently. I thought it was my mom coming to wake me up for school but it was a Saturday so I ignored it. My bed sort of sank down as though someone had just sat on the end of my bed still, I ignored it. Next thing I know someone’s tugging at my blanket so I sat up and I literally did wet myself.

What I saw has haunted me ever since. There was a dark shadow leaning over me. Whatever it was turned to look at me and all I saw were red eyes and a devilish grin. I never saw that shadow again (in that house!) but every night at the same time my entire room went cold for a second. My bed never stopped rocking till I was 8 years old and my blanket got pulled off me once again.

When I was 8 I moved out of Kingstanding and moved to Sutton Coldfield where I had another paranormal experience. My new bedroom was going to be in the attic but there was a wall in the middle of it that was going to be knocked down. The workers had put a hole in the wall to start to demolish it. They were finished for the day so I decided to have a look at what they’d done. I went into the room and shut the door behind me so that my dad didn’t know I was there because I wasn’t allowed in there. I looked through the hole and was scared at what I saw next.

There was the exact same shadowy figure I had seen in my old house hunched up in the corner. It turned to look at me and it had the same red eyes and devilish grin it had before. I just stood there transfixed. How was it there? Had it followed me over here? It stood up and walked over to the hole and I screamed as loud as I could. It opened its mouth as if it was about to scream and it just disappeared.

That moment has stayed with me since I was 8. It was not that long ago when I was speaking to my mom about what happened that one night and she said that she felt it too so I know it wasn’t all a dream. She had exactly the same experience as me except that she never saw the figure of the man. I don’t know about the people who live in that house but I hope that they don’t have the same experiences as me. You don’t have to believe me but I swear it really happen and I have been haunted by these experiences ever since.

    I believe your story, its very strange that something you saw in your old house followed you to your new house, same type of figure.
    Where ever you move, you should get the house blessed first and offer prayers because we dont know the history of the house and what kind of things could have happened there. Please pray because prayers are most powerful to come of over these kind of incidents.

    That is really scarey! I would have been terrified. My sister use to live in an old house where her husband saw dark shapes and even some real ghostly people.One time he was bending over to pick something up and something shoved him over.

  3. paranormal enthusiast says:

    i too believe your story ,if u had not seen that figure for a long time then its ok but if

    u experience weird things quite often then get the home blessed because if it has

    followed u to the 2nd place so it is a matter of concern

    This story and some other recent ones are seriously scary. I’ve been touched by something evil but i’ve never seen anything, i think i’d have a heart attack if i saw what you did – really!!
    I’d go with Ragini’s advice if i were you and not waste any time doing it

  5. sam says:

    i believe your story as the same thing happened to my uncle. He was an elderly man who was living in a house in the country and all he saw was ghostly shadows. He moved house and they still followed him so he got his house exorcised (if thats how you spell it). That worked but he is still haunted by his experience the same as you.
    i hope you are okay and the shadows aren’t bothering you.
    Pray
    i was really babababushcaed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
