This might get a little long, but I will do my best to keep it short.
I have lived in my apartment complex for 5 months now. When I go to bed at night I often feel as if someone is standing over my bed, I am constantly turning on the lights and checking closets and such, I have always trumped this up to just being paranoid as a single young girl living alone.
A couple weeks ago I talked to some of my neighbors at a random get together in the parking lot drinking and hanging out. The neighbors who I talked to are 2 older women who have lived in the complex for over 15 years. They told me about how the apartment upstairs kitty-corner mine was haunted. They said no one has ever stayed longer then 2 months in the apartment (which is currently empty after the last occupants where only there 6 weeks) and they said you can see "shadow people" on the balcony and hear footsteps in the apartment when it is empty. After they told me all this I started thinking about the feelings I have about someone standing over my bed (they never mentioned my apt was haunted" the tenet before me had lived there a few years)
This is where I am confused; I had a very intense experience last night and I don’t know if my mind was playing tricks on me because of the stories they told me or if this really happened.
I went to bed around midnight and I remember having a dream that my boyfriend had snuck into my bed while we were visiting at my parents house and was spooning with me, I then suddenly woke up at this point and I still felt someone laying next to me with their arm around me, the first thought in my head was that my boyfriend has somehow snuck into my apt? I rolled over and I saw a man sitting on my bed, he had his back against the wall with his arms crossed and his legs out in front of him. I know he was wearing a white and blue plaid shirt that kind of reminds me of something a country boy would wear. When I saw him I just froze, I don’t know if I was scared or confused (or even awake?!?!?) After a few seconds he faded away. I jumped up from the bed and turned on the light, I didn’t really feel scared or threatened, I was just more confused about what happened, but I didn’t want to turn the light back off, so I turned the bathroom light on and got back in bed. I live in a studio apartment and there is a half wall separating the bedroom from the living room. When I laid back in bed I saw a bright light fill the living room. I have seen this lots and lots of times, I have always assumed it was headlight from a car since my apartment faces the parking lot. The thing about this night was they are repaving that parking lot and no cars are in it or even have access to it for a couple more days, all the cars are in the other parking lots in the complex. That made me think that maybe all the dozens of times I have seen this light, it wasn’t headlights either.
Has anyone ever experienced something like this, especially with the lights, that is what scares me more, because I have seen it so many times. I did not at any time in the night feel threatened, but I was still a little uneasy and had to have to lights on in order to fall back asleep.
Sorry this was so long, but I am interested on what others have to say about the situation. Is this going to keep happening... I don’t really like a ghost cuddling with me!!
