12:00 a.m.

I was in a car. I looked around and I didn’t recognize anything. I looked to the left and this person was driving me. He was all sweaty, old, and just creepy all around. I tried screaming but nothing would come out. I just wanted to die. I didn’t know what was going on. I looked outside, I couldn’t see anything but darkness. And then I looked to my left again and said, “Who are you?!” He looked at me and stared at me dead in the eye. He scared me. I was frightened what he was going to do to me. He just made me have the chills all around. When I looked at him, it was almost like something or someone was creeping up my back. I looked at the time on the car and is said 12:00 a.m. I still had no idea what was going on. I had to escape. I tried to move and I was taped and tied down to the seat. I screamed. Again. And again. I noticed that I couldn’t I tried to push with all my might and I couldn’t scream for help. I couldn’t get out of this car with this creep. He suddenly stopped the car out of nowhere and looked at me straight in the eye and screamed in my face, “Wake up you worthless w***e!”

I woke up. I was covered in sweat head to toe. I looked at the time. 12:00 a.m. I went downstairs to get water as I was still shaking from the event. I almost fell down the stairs because was shaking so much. I made a stop to the bathroom to clean up. I stared at myself in the mirror, feeling like I couldn’t even recognize myself. I washed my face. When I closed my eyes I could still see the man in my mind. Making me think he’s right beside me. I got paranoid and opened the shower curtain. No one there. I looked around and it was just me home. Nobody else. I finished cleaning myself up and then went back to bed.

I suddenly woke up again. I glanced over at the time and it said 12:00 a.m. I was confused shouldn’t it be later than that? But I just ignored it cause something bigger was happening. I couldn’t move. It was like something was on top of me I had nothing on. I took everything off cause I was so wet and sweaty. I could slowly move my eyes but that it. If I tried to talk all that would come out would be mumbles. I saw something in the corner. Or someone. It was the shape of a fat old man. He had a can and a hat. But I couldn’t see the features, all I could see was the shadow of the old foul. I was so scared. I didn’t know what was happening. Something has to be happening to me in my dream. I closed my eyes. I told myself over and over again, “Wake up! Wake up! Wake up! Come on. You got this! Just f*****g wake up!” I opened my eyes and this time I couldn’t see the shadow for some reason. I heard something in my ear. And… felt it too. Oh my god. Somebody was right next to me. Breathing right in my ear so I could feel and hear it. I slowly started to move my toes and fingers. I was trying to move so bad and scream but instead I was just twitching and mumbling. Finally, I moved my leg and slowly I moved my arm. About 10 minutes later I jumped out of position and stood on the ground. I grabbed a baseball bat I keep in my room and turn to see the man. Nobody was there. What is happening? This makes no sense. I’m so confused. I looked at the time 12:00 a.m. I screamed and took the clock and threw it across the room. I cuddled up in the corner in the room and just bawled my eyes out. I ended up falling asleep in that corner.

I woke up and it was 12:00 p.m. It was noon and I had 3 missed calls from my work because my shift started at 8:00 a.m and ended at 2:00 p.m. I called my friend from college and she came over. I ended up telling her everything and she let me stay at her place for the next couple weeks.

One day I got a package full of information from my house’s previous owner. It was the old man in my dreams. I did some more research on him and he died just before I bought this house. It said 1937-2005. Most of it made sense now. I think he haunted me for that night. Before that night I would always go to bars and bring men home to sleep with. I don’t think he appreciated that.

It’s been 2 years since the incident and to this day, I always respect this house and hopefully I can move out soon.
