Are You Ever Really Alone?
“My best friend’s parents were out of town one weekend and she had the house to herself. She went about her business having dinner, watching tv then decided to go to bed. She was lying in her bed with her back to her closet when she heard the door open.
She somehow pretended to be asleep – but the man who was hiding in the closet walked around her bed to the side she was laying/facing, gently stroked her hair and face then left. She immediately called her boyfriend to ask him to come over then called her parents and then the police.
Long story short, this man had been getting into their home via a doggy door (they didn’t have a dog and didn’t bother to secure it) and he’d been living in a tent in the foresty area behind their home for months to creep on her. They found a ton of surveillance footage of her sleeping and pieces of her clothes and stuff.
If I recall correctly this happened somewhere in Alabama, most likely mid-2000s.” — halfyellowhalfwhite
