Shortly after my boyfriend and I started going out, he told me about this experience:
He was in the shower when he heard a knock at the door and a woman’s voice saying, “Hello.” He was alone in the house at the time, and there aren’t any women living at his house, so he didn’t bother to get out of the shower to investigate; however, when he did get out, he verified that no one had come home.
A few weeks later, he woke up in the middle of the night and he swears that he felt someone “having their way” with him. He was pretty explicit in his description. He insists that it was the same woman who had said hello to him having sex with him, and that she was a ghost.
I am a very skeptical person and this story seemed a little preposterous to me. I have tried to explain it as a dream, him hearing things, and such, but he insists that this stuff actually happened. Being an X-Files and Buffy The Vampire Slayer junkie, my next thought was “Succubus!” but I remained skeptical, until about a month after we started going out.
We were at my house and had just turned off the light and were about to go to sleep. I had my eyes closed when I distinctly heard a woman laughing. It sounded like it came from a few feet above my head. I opened my eyes, and naturally, nothing was there. Since I was tired, couldn’t see anything, and my boyfriend apparently hadn’t heard anything, I went to sleep. I told my boyfriend about this experience recently, and he was adamant that it was his ghost.
I have thought about this experience many times and haven’t been able to come up with a satisfactory explanation. It’s possible that it was my mind playing tricks on me as I was getting ready to go to sleep, but I have never had an auditory hallucination like this. I barely ever even hear sounds in my dreams. Besides, it sounded so real. I could pinpoint exactly where it was coming from. I have a female roommate who has the next room down from me, and we share a wall, which the head of my bed is against. I thought maybe it was her laughing, but I know her laugh and this one was totally different. It was a sort of flirty, short laugh. I was worried that maybe my succubus suspicions were correct, since I’ve heard that they get jealous when their men/prey take human lovers, but I didn’t feel any negative energy. Nothing like this has happened since.
So, what was it? A ghost? A succubus? Does anyone even believe in those anymore? An overactive imagination? I await your theories.
