The scariest thing, and one of the best scares EVER, that has happened to me was in the early hours of the morning quite some time ago. I love the feeling of being scared, the adrenaline, and have yet to find anything that does the trick since this. It just doesn't compare. So, I was at my Dad's house one night, I think it was one of the times I moved home for a stint because of a relationship split, and was designated the sofa in the living room as a bed. It was a cosy room with a fireplace opposite the window and the TV opposite the sofa I slept on. As on any other night, when everyone went to bed I put the fire on and watched a film. It wasn't a horror or anything, Probably some Brit flick as goes my taste, so I had no monsters in my head as I drifted off into sleep. The next thing I know I'm awake, TV off but fire still on, but totaly unable to move. I could see as clear as day an old lady sat on the other sofa under the window. She didn't move or say anything, just sat as if watching the fire. I'm scared, I can't move and there's a strange old lady sat about six feet away from me. Then I started to get movement back in my arm. As it crept up my arm and across my body the old lady faded and was gone. I've heard of sleep paralysis and this could of been that I suppose but where did the old lady come from? It was nobody I knew. It has never happened since and nobody else has seen anything. Real haunting or my mind playing tricks? Either way, what a rush!!
