I am a perfectly normal 12-year-old living in Dominican Republic. My parents are divorced and I used to live with my mom. This is where my story takes place. One normal school night, I normally went to sleep. It was a full moon and I had no sleeping problems whatsoever. I quickly fell asleep, but it didn't last long.
I woke up again at about 12:30 a.m. I was facing the window and I casually turned around. Amazingly, there was someone next to me! I felt my breathing completely freeze, and I suddenly felt cold, which was weird because not only was the air off somehow, but I was wearing covers. The "thing" next to me was also visible by my closet mirror, but only his hair could be seen at the moment. It sat up, not moving the bed, somehow, but now I could see up to his torso; its hair came to life spiking up and I could see its torso and head. It had no eyes, mouth or nose, but it had black holes in its place and a sleeping robe kind of thing around the torso.
What most scared me was that it was transparent, but it was still visible via mirror. Also, it had no inner body besides the holes, just a red outline that seemed to be held together by blood, but after sitting up, it looked straight at the mirror... the black holes at me, and the outline tore apart, everything disappearing in a matter of seconds.
you have a paranormal tale to tell?
