“When I was around 9-10 years old, I remember waking up to see a large shadow stood at the foot of my bed
I was living with my dad at the time, he has a very large (5 floors) terrace house built in the 1800s, every so often there would be an unexplained event happen, such as footsteps when there’s no one there or voices
On the night this happened, it was just my dad and I in the house, my sister was staying with my mum at the time.
I woke up and noticed the door to my room was wide open, I normally sleep with it closed. I then became aware of a large (around 7 ft tall) shadow-like figure watching me from the end of the bed.
When the figure noticed me it seemed to ‘melt’ into the floor and the door to my room slammed shut, understandably I was slightly traumatised by the whole experience
Asked my dad the next day if he was in my room and he denied any knowledge of the event (he’s not the type of person that likes jokes).”
