i'll start off with some background and then to the point...
I read the parent's post and like her, i never had any real fear of the dark until i was about 8. we lived in a small 2 story house. the whole 2nd
floor was a large (my parents') bedroom with a very tiny (the only) bathroom attached. my bedroom was on the first floor, and i had to go through the
main room, up the stairs, thru my parent's room to get to the bathroom. maybe too much irrelevant detail, anyway, one night i go to the top of the
stairs and saw a white form standing next to my mom's side of the bed, diagonally across the room from me. i didn't know what to do, so i went about
my business. i walked very quickly to the bathroom closed the door. at the time i didn't know what it was but it scared the hell out of me. i opened
the door slowly until the light was cast where i saw the figure and i saw nothing.
i later became aware of "aliens" and i knew at that point what i saw was likely a gray or at least a ghost of some kind.
flash forward about 6 years. we moved to a new house. i was still in high school, maybe a sophomore. one night i heard someone whisper my name
repeatedly as if they were trying to wake me. the voice sounded like my own though - my first impression was that my dad was trying to wake me up for
some reason because as i was waking up i could still hear it. i let out a groggy "what?!" but there was no reply. i was scared stiff. no one
answered me but i could definitely feel like someone else was in my room. i didn't look around. i just put my head back down on the pillow and told
myself it was just a dream/my imagination.
now comes the really scary part. i'm shaking as i type this...
a few months later i had a friend sleep over. he has a habit of falling asleep early, but i wasn't tired yet. i let him stay in my bed (in the
basement), and i went upstairs to sleep on the couch. the next morning he started telling me about this really weird dream he had about someone
whispering MY name and i just froze. i didn't let him finish. i interrupted and told the rest of the experience and i could see his face get flush.
he then said he saw a white figure in the corner of my room and thought it was me at first playing a joke on him.
i never told anyone about my experience until he had his. coincidence in this situation is impossible if you ask me. if any one has had anything
remotely similar happen to them i would love to hear it!
