▶ The Tap
Submission by rat2rrj
A few years back, I was listening to my Beatles Cd (with thirty songs, kind of long) and the second to last, Elenoir Rigby, still scared me and was in my head. After a bit of looking at the blue light of my cd player and trying to fall asleep, when I felt a tap on my upper arm. Due to my sleep schedule then, my throat had grown dry and I couldn’t talk, waiting for sleep. The tap scared me, as it touched my arm through both my thick blanket and sleeve. I croaked in response. I think i looked at the wall too, to check for a shadow or something, but i do not recall if i saw one. After about half a minute, the tap came again, twice in succession on the same spot, then I never experienced it again. I perceived the source of the tap to be slightly curved (I like to think it was some sort of gentle claw). The morning after, I wrote a plea for the source to return in English, and I wonder to this day what would have become of me if I replied to the tap at the time of occurrence.
My other ghost story happened on a dark weekday morning around 5:30 when walking my dog with my mom. The dog and mom were wandering around the side of a church close to our house when I saw something white walk out. It looked like a girl, except she walked straight through the door, clasped her hands, and turned into a fuzzy orb that shot up into the sky.
Fuck Yeah Nightmares Mod Fey: The first sounds like sleep paralysis except for the specific touch—that would be very unusual for an episode. 5/10 for scares and thanks for sharing!
