It was close to 2:00 am. When I finally decided to head to bed. I don't normally stay up late during a weekend but I had no work the following day, so I took advantage of the free time. I went through my normal routine to get ready for bed as always. My nephew and nieces were all passed out in the living room underneath their homemade fort when I finally entered my room to sleep. I shut the light off, crawled into bed and threw the blanket over my head. I like to sleep with a fan on every night because I find it helps me sleep but it does get pretty cold from time to time, thus the blanket over the head. I guess I'm weird like that, it could be the middle of winter and I'd still run that fan.
I must have been in bed for a couple minutes when I heard what sounded like my bedroom door creaking open. Normally I would pull the blanket down to see but I figured it might just be my imagination. Then I heard it close. Listening, I then began to hear whispering, almost like little children. My first initial thought was 'it's got to be the kids, probably checking to see if I'm still awake'. So I thought I'd wait to see what they were going to do. Figured if they were going to try and scare me, I would beat them to the punch. So I continued to lay there with the blanket over my head.
As the whispering got closer, I noticed I couldn't make out their words except for a giggle and a quick "ssshhhh" at the head of my bed, almost like they were standing right next to me. So finally I reached my hand out to grab at them from under the blanket and said " ALRIGHT YOU GUYS WHAT ARE YOU DOING?" As I'm reaching out, I notice I'm grabbing at air. Officially freaked, I flung the blanket off my head and found that there was NO ONE there. I got out of bed and looked out my bedroom door to see if the kids were up, but of course they weren't. Needless to say, it took me some time to fall back asleep.
The following night, things took a little turn from creepy to down right TERRIFYING. It was the kids last night at the house before going back home to there mothers. I had found out that I didn't have to go to work again the following day, which was AWESOME and I decided to stay up late again. This time it's close to 3:00 am. when I finally decided to go to bed. Again, the kids were all asleep in the living room before I headed to bed. Once more, I turned off the light, turned on my fan, climbed into bed and pulled the blanket over my head and I just laid there, listening. Sure enough, I hear my door creak open and close. But this time, something didn't feel right. The room felt off and as I listened, fear flooded over me as I heard three loud thuds rush across my bedroom floor from the door to my bed and on the third thud, my fan SHUT OFF! In the few seconds the fan was off I heard RIGHT at my ear, as if something or someone was leaning in, a low and deep 'GROWL'. Then the fan clicked back on and I leapt from my bed and RAN out the door. I ended up falling asleep in the living room with the kids that night.
