"N-n-na-ma-go to the-"

February 4, 2010, 12:55 am

JUST NOW: My computer screen goes dark along with the whole office. Pitch black! I can't see anything! Oh, my coworkers say it's just a power outage. I'm not blind. Then, I wake up. But I can't move.

It's dark. I can't move. I can't open my eyes. Sleep paralysis. Someone stutters, "N-n-na-ma-go to the-... N-n-na-ma-go to the-" It sounds like my voice, but it's elsewhere in the room with me! I can't open my eyes, but I can swivel. I spin. Around and around. I hear the voice, always from the same spot, just a few feet away from me: "N-n-na-ma-go to the-" I still can't open my eyes. I manage to stammer out, "Whhho's THERE?!"

I wake up. For real this time. I open my eyes. I'm in my bed. There's no one in the room with me. It's dark.

I turn on a lamp.
