25 People Tell Their Paranormal Stories That You Definitely Shouldn’t Read In The Dark

20. A dark figure tried to possess me

“I used to have this reoccurring dream where this black figure with no face would visit me and try to posses me. It would typically enter my being through my mouth and at that point I would have no control over my dream. It would tell me to do terrible things to people and it had a scratchy voice. The weirdest part that every time it would be inside me I physically would feel ill. I would wake up with the same feeling often times vomiting right away. The last time this happened must have been 3 years ago.” — churrosricos

21. I became friends with a girl that didn’t exist

“Probably not the most believable but I swear to you this happened and it still freaks me out to this day!

When I was in 3rd grade I lived in a cul-de-sac. In a peaceful neighborhood. Behind the neighborhood was an elementary school that everyone went to.

The elementary was built on an old abandoned farm land. The previous owner had killed his wife and children in the 70’s or 80’s I believe over infidelity and then killed himself. His dilapidated barn still stood there behind the school in a fenced off area with overgrown grass. Kids used to dare each other to go there at night some did. Many kids experienced various paranormal activities in and around the school.

Every recess I used to go outside and play with this group of kids whose last name was Honeycut. They were identical twin girls and their younger brother. They were always kind of weird looking, ultra pale with purple bags under their eyes, striking green irises and chiclet like teeth. Quite frankly they looked malnourished.

We used to spend our recesses playing out on the older jungle gym by the fences. We’d dare each other to go over there through a small child sized hole in the fence but never actually did it. But one day one of the girls “M” decided she was going to go ahead and go through the hole. So her brother acted as the look out while me and her sister held the edges of the fence.

When she climbed through she was completely swallowed by the grass and we lost sight of her. After a few minutes her sister urged me to go through the fence after her. I’m a chicken with a strong flight response so that was not happening. Eventually I spotted sight of her again holding hands with a man. He looked to be about 40 years of age, a Caucasian man with brown hair. Something about him seemed off… and when I saw him I was instantly frightened. He was leading M towards the barn.

When I saw that I took off running towards the lunch ladies and exasperatedly told them what happened. Since I wasn’t one for fibbing she believed me and her and the rest of the lunch lady crew plus the gym teacher started searching back there for her but they never found her. I admittedly was kind of shaken up the rest of the day.

The next day when I went to class I was super antsy because I wanted to know what happened to M. During lunch inhaled my food and made my way out to recess. Once outside I located the Honeycuts, only to see just two of them; M was still missing. I inquired about M, but both of them looked at me skeptically; Like they had no idea what or whom I was talking about. They informed me they had no sister and that it was just the two of them. I thought they were ribbing me so I played along with the joke.

At the end of the day I found them as their mother was coming to pick them up. I asked her about M and she too looked at me like I was crazy, and told me I must be mistaken. Perplexed I went my way home. When I got home i got the bright idea to look at my yearbook from last year. I searched the name index for their last name, only to find that only the two of them were listed in the yearbook.

I freaked out after that I and tried to forget that it ever happened…” — seveer4444

22. I woke up with a man in front of me

“I set up a tent on my bed and slept in it one night. I woke up to a man and a dog at the foot of the bed staring at me. My legs were stiff in the morning because I had them folded as far from the foot of the bed all night.

Another time I was just put to bed, laying on my side. Something blew into my ear. I turned over and nothing was there.

I have heard odd noises in a new house of mine. I grabbed a chair and sat in the dark for a while, no noises or anything while I was down there. Was hoping to see something.” — MoneyIsTiming
