I have had too many experiences with the paranormal not to believe that there is something more going on than meets the eye. One of my biggest scares from when I was young was an experience with the Tooth Fairy – or what I thought was the Tooth Fairy. After this experience, I don’t ever remember putting a tooth under my pillow again. The fear of what might come into my already terrifying room kept me from doing that.
My Childhood Bedroom Was Terrifying
Before I tell you what happened with the Tooth Fairy, let me make it clear that my bedroom was terrifying to me. I had experiences in the rest of the house too. But the bedroom is supposed to be a place where you can go and hide and be safe.
It wasn’t a safe place to go for me. I hated going to sleep and I was always scared in there.
I had so many things happen to me in that bedroom, such as:
- My bed starting to shake while I was laying in it.
- Hearing footsteps walking around my bed.
- Hearing voices close to my head.
- My nightshade being pulled down and up on numerous occasions.
- Knocks on the walls.
- My side light turning on all by itself as I slept.
- And the Tooth Fairy entering my room… but I’ll tell you about that in a second.
I was so scared every single night that I would say the following prayer:
Please don’t let me hear anything, feel anything, see anything, touch anything, or sense anything.
I would repeat it over and over until something scary happened or until I fell asleep.
I also slept with a pillow over my head to try and drown out any noise – a habit I haven’t gotten rid of yet.
The Tooth Fairy Visit
My mom had made me a little pillow that had a spot for me to put my tooth in. It was pink and cute and I liked it.
I had used it on a few occasions before this experience, so I was comfortable with it. But for some reason, this night I was scared.
I had my tooth pillow under my sleeping pillow, and I was scared out of my mind as I laid on my side waiting for the Tooth Fairy to come.
My bed was facing my closet, which reflected light off it because it was white and shiny. And the window was on the opposite wall.
I had the blankets pulled up tight, a pillow over my head, and I was peeking at my closest in terror because I was sure I was going to see something.
Then, all of a sudden, I saw my nightshade lift up. I could see the moonlight fill up part of my room, but the nightshade wasn’t making the noise it normally did when it was snapped up. Instead it was quiet and the light made it seem like it was being lifted up and out so something could come in.
I believed it was the Tooth Fairy and I closed my eyes as tight as I could get them. I didn’t want to see a thing. I was so scared that I don’t think I could have moved if I wanted to.
Then I felt my pillow behind my head being lifted up gently and then put down.
Then I heard the nightshade gently go down.
I stayed still in terror. I don’t know how long it was, but I’m guessing it had to be about 15-30 minutes.
When I started to relax, I opened my eyes and saw that my room was dark again. I still didn’t dare move, though. Just in case it came back.
Then, I heard my bedroom door open and my mom come into my room (I think we all know what our mothers sound like when we are young). She lifted up my pillow and put it down. I heard her making some noise, then she lifted up my pillow and put it down again. Then she left the room.
Was It The Tooth Fairy?
I don’t know what it was. It obviously didn’t leave anything in my pillow or I would remember my mom being confused as heck.
I think it may have been the same thing that was always trying to scare me in my bedroom. And it succeeded.
Since then, I’ve been scared of looking at anything that might give away activity in the bedroom while I’m sleeping. In fact, I usually sleep with a pillow over my head and use the end of the pillowcase to cover my eyes.
Do you remember any experiences with the Tooth Fairy? I would love to hear about them in the comments below.
