I'm 17 years old and my mum and dad always work late. They have their own business so I am often on my own after college. I usually do my study work before anything else.
Two weeks ago I was in my bedroom and I heard the doorknob of my bathroom move. It makes a strange noise like it needs some oil. I looked in the bathroom but nothing was there. I thought it was my imagination and got on with by studying.
Five minutes later I heard another noise and it was like someone had jumped on my bed. I turned round and again there was nothing there.
I went to turn on my light as it was starting to get dark. As I did so I looked in the mirror and there was someone sitting on my bed!! It was a young man and he had a strange smile which was quite eerie as he looked at me. I quickly turned round to face him but there was no one there on my bed.
I was well spooked so I headed out of my bedroom and again glanced in the mirror and there was the man again still with his silly grin. I was really scared and ran down the stairs. There was a shout, like a scream, so I left the house to run to my aunt's house who lives quite near.
My heart was pounding and I was trembling. My aunt laughed when I told her why I was there and what had happened. She thought I was making it up.
It has never happened again but I will not stay in our house on my own and feel shaky when I walk into my bedroom, even when I know my parents are home.
I have told mum and dad but they also laughed it off and said I had been watching too many horror films but I know what I saw and it wasn't my imagination like everyone else says it is."
