My mother has told me about a spirit that supposedly followed her and my grandmother for years. It started out small, my mom was just a little girl and would hear heavy breathing under her bed.
When she called her mother in she would hear it too. When they slept in the same bed she said it would even happen then.
Eventually they started seeing a tall dark figure 'with holes for eyes', my grandmother said it followed them from Tennessee to Florida.
This always scared me because, even though I've never seen anything like that I had similar experiences as a young teenager. I'd hear breathing under my bed,hold my breath and still hear it.
I'd tell myself it's my imagination and the more I tried to block it out it'd get worse, something would literally start punching the mattress from under the bed, or the bed would shake.
When I was awake late reading I'd hear a low growl in one ear and feel cold breath blow my hair.
I always feared the thing my mom described but hoped I could just try to be positive and not attract such negative energy, but this creepy thing intrigues me.
