My Few Encounters

by Jan

I was about five years old at the time... Since I always had trouble with sleeping alone, I slept with my mother and father in their bedroom.


That night everything was OK. I was sleeping normally, not even dreaming. Then I woke up in the middle of the night. I can't remember what time it was exactly... I was lying next to my mother and my father. I just 'had to' look up, so I did. Then I saw something creepy - the bedroom doors suddenly opened and a man dressed like an astronaut (Ok, he probably didn't look like an astronaut, but he was similar to it) was there. Around this ''white man'' the light was shining very brightly - the light was coming from him. I said before that he looked like an astronaut. He was dressed in a white coat and he had something like a helmet. There was also a light - yellow - coming from it.

I still don't know why I didn't wake my parents, but I do remember it was not a dream and I cried. (I'm tearing up now actually - I always do that when I get creeped out).


Again, I was sleeping with my parents. It was an Easter morning and I woke up at five or six o'clock. It was a sunny day, so it was already very bright. I woke up looking at the window and I saw something that just scared me so much, I still can't sleep turned to the window.

There was a giant leaf (no kidding, a real leaf only that it was very big, so it was covering the whole window). And a guy's face - dead face - was on it. (I'm not sure anymore, but I was sure at the time it was a face of Chirst at the time, since it also got something on his head like a thorn crown.
-I hope I didn't offend anyone with this, but It actually looked like him.

Then I thought: "I must be dreaming." I turned around, now looking at the closet. But I couldn't help myself... I turned around one more time. But at my surprise "it" didn't go away. Actually it was now a leaf turned backwards - so there wasn't a face on... I shook my head and turned around again. Then again I turned to the window. The leaf was turned "face up" again.

I was turning around for a few minutes and every time it was the same: one time leaf with head, then leaf with no head.


I was sleeping in my own room then (yay!). Well not alone... My two year older brother was sleeping in another bed. I woke up in the middle of the night, looking at the door. And there was a tall man, dressed very poorly standing by it. I couldn't believe it so I started crying. My brother woke up and asked me what's wrong. I told him there is someone standing by the door. He looked and didn't see him, so I looked again. There he was again.

Since there was nothing else to do, my brother turned the lamp on. Now there was light and the man just disappeared. I was so relieved. We turned the light off and I looked at the door. There he was again!!! I tried explaining to my brother, but he didn't believe me. He turned on the light and the man disappeared again. But as soon as he turned it off again, there he was.

I was so scared I crawled to my brother and we switched beds, so I wasn't looking at the doors. But still as I turned around I saw someone standing at the door. I saw details then I could recognize a bandage (or something) on his right eye.

Later I found out (actually I knew that before), that my great-great-grandfather died in our house, long time before. And what's the scariest part? He had an injured right eye.

Ok. So these are all TRUE stories. I really needed to share them. Thanks for your understanding and please post comments, if something like that happened to you too - especially about that white man.
