I shouldn’t have done it. I knew better. The voice inside my head warned me that I’d regret it.
Still, I’m a grown woman. I’ve read The Amityville Horror…a very long time ago. The Exorcist and other movies of that ilk? Yep, seen a few of them. I’ve watched paranormal shows on TV in the middle of the night…by myself…and lived to tell the tale.
So why would a History’s Mysteries documentary about something I read a long time ago bother me?
It shouldn’t…but it did…does. It’s been a few weeks since I saw it, too.
I should have listened to my inner voice.
I suppose if I expected to see anything…weird…it might have been a pig with red, glowing eyes. That is one of my worst fears…to wake up in the middle of the night and have that monster staring in on me from outside my window. At night when I’m spooked, it seems way too plausible for my liking. In the light of day, of course, it’s utterly ridiculous.
What spooked me on the documentary was the picture of the little boy peeking out from the room when no one was supposed to be there. Or was it a little boy? Maybe he’s a demon in disguise. It’s his eyes…and the fact that according to the people who were there, no one was upstairs…certainly not a child. I didn’t see the boy at first because he’s kind of tucked away back to the left. When I did see him, though, the hair on my arm raised up and started tingling…and not in a good way. Scared the H-E-DOUBLE HOCKEY STICKS out of me.
I don’t know why I’ve never seen this picture before or why it scares me so much. I’m sure it’s been on the internet for a gazillion years. I usually don’t go looking for stuff like this, though. Hey, and maybe it’s a hoax. Some have suggested it is. I want to believe that.
My arm hair begs to differ.
Now when I shut my eyes, this boy demon pops into my head. It makes trying to sleep…very difficult.
Just saying, when your inner voice says no, just go with it. Don’t try to convince yourself that there’s no reason to be afraid. That you’re a grown up. That you’re being ridiculous.
I’m not going to put the picture on my site; however, if you’re adventurous…or fearless, you can find it here.
Anyway, that’s what’s currently terrifying me and causing me to lose sleep these nights…other than the real life horrors going on in this mad, mad world. How about y’all? Any movie you’ve watched or book you’ve read…or something that went bump in the night that still gives you the heebie jeebies…real or imagined…or you’re just not sure? Or if there’s anything else you want to talk about, please share. I’d love to hear from you!
