My name is Charmaine and this is my story… When I was about 7 years old I started seeing this small creature, it was the size of a dwarf, had sharp yellowish teeth, had red eyes and it’s fingers looked like they were sharpened. At first the creature didn’t do much, it just stood on my table in front of the bed and looked at me, it scared me. I couldn’t move, I was so scared. Later it would smile at me, the evilest smile I had ever seen, later it pointed and smiled. I tried to ignore it, but it wouldn’t go away. I was so scared to go to bed at night. It would appear each night, when the lights were turned off and my parents were sleeping. They never believed me when I told them about the ‘thing’.
After a few months I ignored it and it didn’t like that, he started to scratch the under side of my bed, I still ignored it… until one night that it jumped on my bed and scratched me. I screamed and my parents came, and told me I had a bad dream. The next morning there were scratches on my arm. This continued for over 6 years. I got fed up with it and one night I looked it in the eyes and told it to go away and it did.
I never saw it again, but felt it’s presence one more time. I was 16 at the time. I was visiting my friend and it was late so I decided to sleep there, we were sharing a bed (me, her and her boyfriend). I woke up because her boyfriend was freaking out and said that the boogeyman was here. I sat up and I could feel the ‘thing’, but didn’t see it. I ran to put the lights on and when we looked at her boyfriends arm there were scratches on it. He told me what he saw… he describe exactly the same thing that I saw years ago. I went cold and the fear came back.
I told him that I faced my fears and told it to go away and it did. This thing lives on fear. He tried it and after a while the thing went away.
Does anyone know what this thing is? Has someone else seen this too?
