Ok, this happened last week, and has me completely paranoid so I want you all to let me know what you think...
It was about 3am, I was kinda stressed from having an argument with my sig-other, and was getting ready for bed. We had ended the conversation on good
terms, and I was beat, I went besides my dresser and pulled out my atheme, a kitana that I received some time ago as part of an art deal, to say my
nightly prayer to the God and Goddess (being wiccan, and my general feelings, I use the sword in prayer). I sheethed the blade. As I was putting it
away I began to feel really uneasy, you know that feeling like something bad is going to happen? It was like that plus a feeling of being watched.
I shrugged this off as left over feeling from the argument, and shrugged it off. But when the feeling didn't go away I decided to turn on my lamp
thinking maybe seeing the room would make me feel more secure. No dice. So I got up, and took my atheme and put it next to my bed, leaving the
scabbard part off. I know it sounds stupid, but it made me feel a little better knowing I had my blade next to me.
So I'm starting to close my eyes, and I'm beginning to fall asleep when a shadow passes over me. You know how when you close your eyes you can still
see the light? well for an instant it was black, before becoming that color of light-though-eye-lid shade. and I jumped up, I scanned the room,
nothing. I unsheathed my blade, and felt the edge of the room with it, seeing if I didn't hit some invisible solid. This was to no avail, so I
called my self an idiot and that it must have been pre-rem sleep or something, seeing something before you really pass out kinda thing.
Well, some time passes and I'm on the edge of sleep when all of the sudden I jolt up with a sense of fear, shock and anger, the feeling made me throw
my hand back to the hilt of my atheme, and what I saw briefly scared and angered me so deeply...
What I saw was a being, human fair skin, brownish hair, large black "Gray" eyes, its limps seemed unusually skinny compared to its torso. This
creature looked at me with a look of surprise, (I noticed no teeth, and a small but human nose and no lips). It was crouched on its haunches over my
sock drawer, it had one in its hand. I told myself that if I ever saw what I thought was a "Gray" I would do what some of those on this board had
said and not sit there, but get angry and lash out. as I jumped up to attack, at the same time it seemed to fall backward, and vanish in a "patchy
way" (blotches of it seemed to vanish before the entirety). as it did so it dropped the sock it was holding. Regardless of its disappearance, I
continued to punch, kick and slash at the air around me, and in the corners of my room, earnestly trying to wound what ever I just saw.
I stayed up the entire night, and the next day. from 4-6am I was back to the wall, sword drawn, scanning my room for any movement. That feeling was
very strong at this point. at 6 am I heard my mom and dad waking up, (home from college). My dad's a pretty tough guy, a sessioned hockey player, and
frankly I felt I would be safer around more people, so I ran for the door and slammed it behind me.
I left the house for the day, and thought about that night. Now, I know what I saw, but is what I saw when I thought I knew? I summed up things it
could be; hallucination due to stress and tiredness, coming out of/going into a dream state, possibly some kind of spirit entity, or possibly
Frankly, I'm not hoaxing, I know how weird this sounds, and I'm not sure if I totally believe myself in what I'm thinking. I'm asking for help.
from what I described, was it something alien? Was I dreaming? Am I right to be so paranoid and looking over my shoulder constantly, or sleeping with
a weapon next to my bedside regularly?
Thanks for reading, hope you can help me shed light on things.
