Clown

This all happened when I was 4 to 5 years old, and now am 23. Even though it was long ago I still remember it like it was yesterday. My mom, dad, and I were living with my grandmother at the time. One of my family members had gotten me a stuffed clown. It was made totally out of cloth with red hair and the whole clown wardrobe. The face was painted on and it had a great big smile on its face! This clown was always with me no matter what. If I went to the park it did too, if I went to the doctor...well you get the point.

I am not sure how long I had owned the clown but it always slept with me at night. One morning I awoke to find the clown not next to me. I looked around and finally found it on the floor. I picked up and looked at it and then dropped it and screamed for my mom. She ran in and asked what was wrong. I just pointed down at the clown that was on the floor. She gave me this weird look like (you are a strange child but I love you kind of look.) My mom picked up the clown and turned it over. I remember her face going totally white. For you see the clowns smile was now a big frown! The face I remember was angry looking. I just feel like it was mad at me for dropping it during the night. Or maybe just possessed with a spirit and the spirit was mad at me for dropping it. I will never know and don't want to find out.

My mom wanted me to get rid of it but I thought maybe if I slept with it without dropping it maybe it would be happy again. Not so. My mom says that I started to have very bad dreams and I would scream in my sleep. Then the clown disappeared (probably my mom threw it away) and I had no more nightmares except for the few I have had.

The only reason I know this happened and is not a figment of my imagination. Is even to this day my mom swears it happened and she never would lie about something weird like that.

Ever since that I hate being in a room with china dolls or any kind of doll. I am probably being paranoid but I feel like their eyes follow me around.

Well there is my story make what you want out of it but I know what I saw. Get a hold of me if you want to ask questions or have had an experience like this one.
