i was lying on my couch playing on my phone and scrolling on instagram until all of a sudden there was this strange shape of a person in my window when i looked up. when saw it, it js looked like it was staring back at me but i couldnt see its face. it was just the shape of the body. so i got up to go get some water and i heard a loud thud from the same widow that i saw the figure at. i started to get really uncomfortable and i decided to go to the window. when i did, i saw its face and it was very clear that it was a man. he had greasy short hair, his eyes looked like he was high and looked very tired, his hands were all wet and wrinkly, his face had eye bags, and his clothes were very raggedy. he wasnt very close to the window so i just closed the curtain. 30 minutes have passed and i went back to the window to take a little peek, once i did that, my eyes were full of shock and my jaw dropped. he was bare and he wasnt wearing any clothes and he was sitting on the grass on the back of my lawn crossing his legs with his eyes staring back at mine, but it was really strange because i only made a little hole in the curtain so i can see him. so i closed the curtain and my hands were shaking so much. another 30 minutes have passed and i hear another loud thud from the other side of my house. i look out the window and there he was, his face right there at the window staring at me and just one foot away from me while i watched him stand there with his clothes back on. i decided to call my mom and she told me to stay away from all the windows and if i hear another thud i have to leave it alone and just continue with what im doing until she gets home. so i did that. and hour passes and i have heard 5 thuds while playing roblox on my ipad and watching hulu on the tv until i hear a rock hit my window. i called my mom again and she told me to hide in the bathroom with a knife in my hand and my phone in my ear just so my mom knows im still there. i heard walking in my room, then in the kitchen, then in my parents’ room. all of a sudden the footsteps went away and i had a sigh of relief. “WHERE ARE YOU??!” a voice yelled around the house asking the exact same question while i was in the bathroom with the phone and knife still in my hands. i was scared straight. no other emotions came though my mind except for fear. i started to cry and i came out of the bathroom yelling a pt the man telling me to not hurt me and to leave me alone while tears are running down my face. my mom had already called the cops and they have arrived two minutes after i begged him to not hurt me and he ran out the door with guns facing him and the police in front of him. my mom came at the exact same time as my dad and the cops did. my mind was still full of fear and i felt relief running through my body. the man was arrested for sexual assault which explains why he was fully bare the second time i looked out the window. from now on my oarents will never let me stay home alone ever again.
