The following story is true and taken right from my FB author page
Wondering why i’m up so late?
I had a weird dream. It was almost as if I wasn’t dreaming at all. I wanted to sleep early so I turned off the lights after reading some H.P Lovecraft.
I know what you’re thinking and no, scary stories before bed don’t give me nightmares (usually).
Anyhow, I fell asleep I think, and started to feel this presence in the dark. It was like I was being watched. I swore I opened my eyes and looked around, thinking it was nothing, then I rolled back over.
I felt it again. Something in the room with me. I wanted to turn back except, now, I couldn’t move. I was frozen, paralyzed.
I told myself to calm down, that it was in my head and I could move if I wanted. I felt so heavy and sleepy and started to feel a pressure right at my side, like something was stabbing me gently (as if that’s possible).
I couldn’t move though and that’s when I heard it. Not really as sound but as thoughts. It didn’t want me to move. It wanted me to obey and if I didn’t…I saw a dark spot appear in my left eye and I knew it was trying to blind me. I panicked. I wanted it to end. I wanted to be awake.
My whole body was buzzing but I finally managed to move. I sat up and turned over expecting to see something but I was alone. I laid on my back and tried not to fall asleep again because I knew that thing was lurking just off the edge of sleep.
