Don’t Pretend to Sleep

Do you ever wake up in the middle of the night for no reason? Especially around 2 to 3 in the morning? I read something once that said if you wake up for no reason around these times, it’s because something is watching you… I used to laugh it off and never really believed it. Well, like I said. Used to.

It’s always so quiet at these times, you hear every little noise around you, except for the ones that really matter. At times like these, you have to really pay attention. You’ll be able to feel it near, feel it watching you.

You won’t be able to explain how or why but you’ll know it’s there. But never look for it, that’s what it wants you to do. You can’t let it know you know. You either have to go back to sleep, or get up and leave. But whatever you do, do not try to find it. And even more so, don’t pretend to sleep, this is the worst of all because things will get worse.

You’ll be able to hear the little creaks of it moving, the bumps in the night. You’ll feel it getting closer. And when it’s right behind you you’ll be able to feel its breath on your neck. If you move or make a sound then you’re done.

I’m writing this to you after having done the latter of the first two options, I needed to tell someone about this before it gets me. It’s getting smarter now, it knows that I know. Now all I can ever do is leave.

I’m terrified it’ll finally leave the confines of my bedroom from wherever in the shadows it hides. I’m scared it’s going to finally get me. I can hear it rustling in there. Just remember these rules if you ever wake up for no reason, just don’t pretend. I really hope I can find a way ou-

This is the first creepypasta that I’ve written and I’d like to say thank you for taking the time to read it. I look forward to writing more and being a part of this community.

    Interesting idea. The grammar could use some improvement, but overall not bad.

    1/5 This story is already beating a dead horse with its “don’t go to sleep” concept, and is further disappointing in its lack of original ideas to add.

    • JaneTheReader

      Sorry, just had to point out that it never says “don’t go to sleep”, rather it says “don’t pretend to be sleeping”.

  • OriginalRecipe

    I enjoy reading creepypastas or going on YouTube and listening to other people read them. This one really gives me the creeps. I wake up about 3AM a lot. I think I will heed these rules lol. Good job and I can’t wait for more.

    It leaves something to my imagination
