my name is kenzie, and i was just relaxing in my bed one night, and there it was. *thump thump thump* is all i hear at my window, me being about 11-12 i pull the bed sheets above my head. later on i’d say about 20 minutes, the thumping had been getting louder! i had no idea what to do, as i did fall asleep but it woke me up, and then i fell asleep again. except woke up to my babysitter waking me up, and she didn’t even say a word. she just brought me to her room, and i was questioning why. we eventually took the long stairs up to her room (keep in mind, my room is on the first floor.) so now we’re on the second floor. i’m waiting for her to tell me what’s wrong and she goes “there’s a man outside. be very quiet” and right there, i go into complete shock. me having anxiety in all. so then, i looked out her window, and saw a tall mysterious shadow. i couldn’t really tell what it was, but it really did scare me. my babysitter then said “back away! you’ll be seen!” she said that really loud, that i heard the thumping again. then there it was *glass breaks* we heard glass going everywhere from downstairs! my babysitter then hands me a knife, (like a tiny pocket knife.) and i go into the closet ready for her to give me the all clear. i hear someone going up or down the stairs, and my babysitter then screamed! so i ran out the closet, and saw her getting dragged by a man, in all black, dragging her down the stairs. she looked passed out! so then i rushed towards him, and stabbed him in the chest! he let go of her, and i don’t know how, but i dragged her into a room. i called the police. they came to the scene, and the man was gone! i don’t know how he left, but he left a blood trail into the woods. the police followed the trail, but it led behind a tree. turns out he stole supplies to patch himself up, and he got away. haven’t seen him since.
