  1. So, my mom often had to haul my siblings around for sports, friend hangouts, etc. I had social anxiety so I stayed home all the time. At the time i was a teenager, so i was still sort of immature. At this particular day, my whole family decided to go to the park, graciously letting me stay home. I locked myself in my room once I heard they were gone. I kid you not, ten minutes later, I hear my door unlock.

    No one was home yet, as I hadn’t heard the garage open. I checked the door to make sure it wasn’t just a random noise or anything, but no, it was UNLOCKED. I read a lot of horror stories back then, so I started feeling paranoid. I searched the whole house, but I couldn’t find anybody or anything. I soon forgot about it.

    Fast forward two years later. I was babysitting my siblings while my parents were out, and I’m just getting to bed myself. I kept my blinds open a crack to let a bit of light. I had insomnia, so it’s about midnight, and I roll over, facing the window.

    I swear, I saw an eye.

    I don’t care what anybody says, I SAW an eye. No other facial features or anything, just a black shape of a head with a big eye. It looked like a rogue shadow. I started up, and the head ducked out of sight. I flung the blinds out of the way, panicking, but it was nowhere. I slammed the blinds closed, locked the door, and ducked under the covers like a little kid. I felt paranoid the whole night, and I still sometimes feel like I’m being watched today.
