Back in 2003, I was 8 years old. Our family had just moved into a new home. I was wide awake. It was practically past midnight, and I was laying in my bed.
For you to understand this story better, I’ll have to explain how the room was like.
So, I had my bed at the end of the room below the windows. and at the other side was the door. Next to the door was a walk in closet, both doors of the closet had mirrors on them.
They were pretty big, I’d say it covered 75% of the wall. So I could see my own reflection when I was on my bed.
Anywho, as I laid there, waiting for me to fall asleep. I felt something grab my leg, like a big hand violently grabbing my leg, then pulling me out of bed.
As soon as this happened, I began screaming and held the headboard of the bed so to not get completley pulled away.
As this was going on, I guess my brother was also awake because he heard my screams. He tried opening my door but couldn’t get in.
And in my house, there is a rule: Never lock any door. So it was unlocked, but for some reason he couldn’t open it.
He yelled out to my mother and father. While they were getting up I was still struggling and holding onto the headboard.
When I looked back, I saw the reflection of myself on the closet doors. There was a huge, black arm coming from under my bed, grabbing my leg and pulling me. As soon as I saw that, I screamed louder.
When my parents finally reached the door to my room, they were able to open it, the hand let go and went under the bed.
They turned on the lights and asked me what was going on. I told them what went down, but obviously it was swept aside with a bad dream. Even though I was clearly awake.
After this day, I grabbed the mattress and put it on the floor. I was not going to sleep on beds that had spaces under them, afraid of this to occur again.
My brother believed me because I showed him the bed frame, there were 3 scratch marks on the side where the arm came out.
Mind you, the bed was new, my dad had them set up the night we arrived. He knew I couldn’t have done that to it.
