11:00 pm Day 1
It's just before midnight and I am talking to my friend that lives far, far away. It was another normal night, I call him a lot but this night was different. It was quiet. I usually have my son but he was camping with his father in Borrego Springs.
11:24 pm Day 1
I just hung up with my friend and was getting ready to go to sleep. It was almost midnight and I was really tired. I was turning off the TV when suddenly I heard something. It was coming from behind me. I turned around. I didn't want to but I did. Behind me were the blinds to the back door. They were moving back and fourth. I thought it was just the wind but it wasn't. I knew this because I had closed and locked all the doors and windows.
11:30 pm Day 1
I was so freaking out. The blinds were moving back and fourth. I didn't know what to do. I was tired and trembling so without a doubt, I stopped them from moving, ran into my room and closed the door shut. But it was just getting started.
2:15 am Day 2
I was awoken by a noise and I wasn't sure what it was. I opened my eyes and I saw it. I thought it was my son but it wasn't. I remembered that he was camping. I opened my eyes even more and I saw it, the scariest thing I have ever seen. All of a sudden all the electronics went off. The TV, stereo, and everything else. I freaked out. And from this day I still see the same person every night. I just seem to ignore it because it hasn't harmed me or my family.
