So, my apartment is currently being haunted by the ghost of a dead child and he's trying to kill me. (thread)
He started appearing in dreams, but I think he's crossed over into the real world now.
The first time I saw him, I was experiencing sleep paralysis and saw a child sitting in the green rocking chair at the foot of my bed.
He had a huge misshapen head that was dented on one side. I did my best to draw it:
For a while he just stared at me, but then he got out of the chair and started shambling toward the bed.
I couldn't move because I was paralyzed. (I have sleep paralysis fairly often. It sucks.)
Right before he reached my bed, I woke up screaming.
I had another dream a few nights later, where I was in a library and a girl came up to me and said, "You've seen Dear David, haven't you?"
I was like, "Who?" And she said, "Dear David. You saw him."
She continued, "He's dead. He only appears at midnight, and you can ask him two questions if you said 'Dear David' first."
Then she added, "But never try to ask him a third question, or he'll kill you."
I was very shaken! Having two dreams about the same thing is pretty weird. Anyway, a couple weeks passed without incident.
Then, David came back in another dream. Same situation—I was in bed, and he was sitting in the rocking chair near the window, staring at me.
In the dream, I say, "Dear David, how did you die?" He mumbles, "An accident in a store."
I say, "Dear David, what happened in the store?" He groans, "A shelf was pushed on my head."
I'm frozen with fear. I ask, "Who pushed the shelf?" David doesn't answer.
I realize that I've asked a third question, which I'm not supposed to do. At that point, I wake up, absolutely terrified.
The next couple days I google deaths in the city, but can't find anything about a kid named David dying in a store.
I even try different names—Daniel, Dylan, Devon. Nothing. A few weeks go by without incident.
Sort of randomly, the apartment above mine is vacated, and I have the opportunity to move into it. It's a larger apartment, so I'm thrilled.
Another month or two goes by, and I sort of forget about Dear David. I think he lost track of me because I moved upstairs.
But lately, something strange is happening.
For the past 4 nights, my cats gather at the front door at exactly midnight & just stare at it, almost like something is on the other side.
Last night I got a weird feeling and looked out the peephole, and I'm dead certain I saw movement on the other side.
When I opened the door and turned on the hall light, nothing was there, but my cats seemed unnerved. Bushy tails, etc.
And that's where I am right now. Dear David found me, I think. I don't know what to do. I'll keep you updated.
Update: for the sixth night in a row, my cat has walked over to the door promptly at midnight and stared at it.
What is going on?
Ok, so I took a photo through the peephole cuz I'm too scared to open the door. I feel like I saw something.
I couldn't tell so I mustered the courage to open the door. Nothing was out there but I took another photo. Look at this:
Is it just me or is is there something in the first photo, right where the bannister meets the shelves? Hiding on the stairs.
I wasn't sure if it was a smudge or something so I took a second photo from inside. There was something out there.
I deadbolted the lock and got in bed because I don't know what else to do. I can still hear my cat meowing at the door.
I am pretty scared.
