A few months ago, my husband and I were asleep. It was the middle of the night, maybe around 3:30am. I woke up because my husband panicked and screamed. Now I have never heard my husband scream before, especially not straight from dead sleep. I calmed him down and we went back to sleep.
The next morning, I asked him if he remembered what had happened and what had made him scream. He told me he remembered clearly. He has seen a little girl dressed in white with big black circles around her eyes standing at the door to our bedroom. She was just staring at him, until he noticed her. Then she made a quick unnatural movement up to the ceiling and disappeared.
I reminded him that he was sleeping and that he had probably just had a crazy dream. We moved on.
Then a few nights ago, same situation. Asleep, middle of the night. Except this time, it was me. I went from being completely asleep to screaming, high pitched and loud, as if I was some type of girl in a horror film. Because in all honesty, I don't believe people ever really scream in real life. But I did and from a complete sleep. I wasn't able to calm down and sleep after, I was too scared.
I had seen a small white, female thing standing by my bed. It was just standing there, waiting for me take note and then when I did, it jumped at me. I say thing and not girl, because to me, it didn't seem very human and it had a face, but its eyes were just big dark circles.
My husband is convinced it was the same thing that he saw months prior. Now I understand that we were both actually asleep when it happened. I also understand that what he saw could have influenced what I saw, but I really don't think so. The experience was like no bad dream I have ever had. The panic and ill feeling was too real. I really don't want this to escalate, and I don't really know what to do about it.
