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.
