Night Time Pest

Around 2002-2003

I can’t remember if I had already been asleep or if I was drifting off to sleep but suddenly I had this incredible feeling like I was being watched and the urge to quickly look towards the doorway to my bedroom. There in the doorway stood a man with medium brown hair (thinning on top) and brown eyes. It’s been a long time but I think I remember he had on a short-sleeved button down shirt tucked into jeans. I couldn’t’ see his feet, not that I was taking the time to study him because this guy was NOT very nice.

He just looked at me with this leering grin on his face. I immediately yelled, “leave” and he was gone right before my eyes. I laid my head back down on the pillow (wide awake) in hopes of going back to sleep but just a few seconds later I got the feeling he wasn’t gone. I looked over and sure enough he was back. This time he “chuckled” at me and I got the feeling that he was having a good time scaring me. I got out of bed and stomped at him telling him firmly to leave and he did. I never saw him again.

I don’t know why I have this impression as my description of him to a neighbor didn’t quite fit but I just have this feeling that I had seen the owner of the house. The guy who owned this house not only owned it, but he built it himself. He died alone (his wife and kids left him) in my bedroom of diabetes. He never got to make the finishing touches (inside doors etc) on the house before he died.
