Ok, so here is my first story. The first of many stories. I've had many scary experiences, but this one stands out for some reason. Some of you might not find this scary, but I found it truly terrifying. Ok, so this happened way back when I was a kid (maybe 7 or 8). My family and I were on vacation. I can't remember where but I do remember what happened. Anyway, it was near the end of the day and we had all returned to our hotel room. We were all fairly tired because we just had a full day of activities, so we all decided to hit the sack early. I remember waking up early the next morning. I think it was around 5 or 6 am. The sun was just starting to break through the window. I could feel that something was different. I didn't know what, but something. Then I sat up, and that's when I noticed her. There, at the foot of my bed, was a young girl. She was around my age or a little older at the time. I thought at first that I was seeing things, so I rubbed my eyes and looked again. She was still there. And no, I was not dreaming. I was wide awake. Her skin was pale and her hair was long, dark and ragged. She was wearing what looked to be a nightdress. I wanted to call out to my parents but was afraid they would be mad at me for waking them up so early. The girl just sat there. The weird thing was she was staring at her fingernails. Nothing else. Just staring at her fingernails. I swallowed hard and said "Hello?" NOTHING! She didn't move. I said "Hello" again. This time she raised her head and looked at me. That's when my heart sank and my blood ran cold. She looked at me with a blank stare. Her eyes were so dark and cold. Almost like she wasn't looking at me, but through me. I was so terrified, that I got underneath the covers and stayed there until everyone else got up. Needless to say, I never slept anymore that morning. I never saw the mystery girl for the rest of our vacation and I never told my parents about it either. I don't even think I've ever told my wife about it. To this day, I still remember the look that girl gave me and it sends shivers up my spine. I even have nightmares about it sometimes. Only in the nightmares, she is actually reaching out to me. Has anyone else had any experiences like this? If so, let me know. And please comment what you thought of this story. Thank you.
