Hello, My name is Selene Enellec and I am a Sophomore at a high school in the big island of Hawai'i. I request that you list my name in one of your stories as well as my email. I don't mind.

My story is about the night of January 13th, 2005. I was in my bed reading a Manga (japanese comic). It was a hot night and I didn't have the covers on me. I was also listening to music with my cd player. As a few minutes past, I began feeling cold all over and I felt a sense of fear of something I couldn't explain. So naturally, I'd take off my headphones and look around the room in a sort of panic. And when I looked at my dresser, I almost had a freakin' heart attack! There, right in front of me, was this...this...thing! It was about a few inches less then 5 feet and had blood-red eyes. It was completely black except the eyes. I only saw it for a moment because then, it ran right through my wall towards the outside of the house. My room was on the second floor of the house. I expected to hear it fall, but all I heard was the beating of my heart, and the silence around me.

My mind began to race after I could register what had happened. "What the f*ck was that?!" was my first thought. After a few moments, I just figured that I was just seeing things because it was about 2 in the morning and my eyes were tired. And so, I climbed in my bed and turned off the light to go to sleep. You know when you’re tired, yet not and you usually stare at the ceiling before you go to sleep? Well, I just happened to look up, and I saw it again! There wasn't only one this time, but there were seven!!! They were on the ceiling by what looked like they were digging their claws and toes right into the ceiling to keep themselves up there. Right when I looked up, I was paralyzed and couldn't move anything or do anything but breathe and move my eyes about. They all had blood-red eyes that seemed to glow. This time, they stayed where they were and seemed to stare at me in curiosity. I know this because their eyes traveled my entire body and they would move their heads in awkward angles. And then, a few minutes later, I blinked, and they were all gone. I had expected to find claw marks in my ceiling but I was surprised to find that there were none.

What the hell are those things and why wasn't that their last visit to me?! I've been having that happen to me since then! What the hell is going on?!
