I was 10 years old at the time. My parents both went out of town for the night and I begged them to let me stay home alone for the duration of their absence. After hours of begging, they finally said that I could stay home alone for the night. I was excited. This was going to be amazing.
My Parents left the house around 3 in the afternoon. I watched tv, ate whatever I wanted, and I was having a great time. Finally, I decided it was time for bed when the clock hit 2AM. I turned the lights off and was about to go under the covers when I saw a green light shining under my door. I was confused. I opened the door, and felt a rush of air. I saw down the hallway a figure walking slowly toward me. I panicked. I went to the only salvation that any ten year old had. I hid under the covers. My door squeaked open. I heard footsteps lead up to my bed, then abruptly stopped. I decided to look from under the covers.
A small greenish thing was kneeling over me, studying me. I got scared and put my head under the covers again. Ten minutes passed, then the thing walked out of my room. A big rush of air blew my blanket away, then the green light went out when I opened my door.
I didn’t sleep that night. My parents got home, and I told them what had happened, and they both agreed that I had a nightmare and that I won’t be home alone again any time soon.
