Hello Darkness. I’m a 23 year old male living in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The story I’m about to tell happened 8 years ago.
I was about 15 when it happened. I have a big family which consists of my father, my mom, me and my 3 younger brothers. My dad had a business trip to the United States, so he wasn’t there when this happened. Being the oldest remaining male in the house, I had more responsibilities than usual, but it was ok. It’s not the first time my dad went on a business trip.
The first few days went like usual, nothing special. It was until one night when I woke up around 2:15 am. I didn’t think much of it. I felt thirsty so I went to the kitchen to have a glass of water. As I was having my drink, I heard the door outside my house opening. My house isn’t like you’re used to in America. It was a 4 story house in which we lived with pretty much all of our closest family. It’s pretty common in this part of the world. Anyway, I felt weird that the door was opening that late, so I went to my entrance door which had a big glass on it so you could see everything outside.
The first thing I saw was the man with grey hair. I first thought it was either my grandfather or my uncle who both have grey hair. But then I thought, this isn’t either of them. This guy wasn’t balding like my grandfather, so it wasn’t him. Also I knew it wasn’t my uncle because my uncle has a weird way of going up and down the stairs and this guy was going up like most people would. That triggered me. I ran into the kitchen, grabbed the biggest knife I could find, shut the lights off in the kitchen and ran back to the door.
