This happened in 2014, in the small populated town of Donna Texas. I was having a recurring nightmare every night for 4 nights in a row. We reside next to a cemetery so it’s not unusual that we experience inexplicable “paranormal activities” in the home or its surrounding areas. So the dream was of Mexican folktale “Duendes” I grew up with stories of these mythological creatures. In the stories I heard, they were cute and funny. Until they appeared to me in my sleep.
Chasing me around our big oak tree and almost catching me. These creature didn’t appear to have a face, they were little and dressed in black robe-like attire. I remember they had tiny hands with sharp nails and tiny bare feet.
Each dream alike, but more intense than the last. I’d wake up dripping in cold sweat everyday that week. On the 4th night of my dreams, husband wakes me up before the cold sweats do, and exasperated asks, “What happened here? what happened to the bed?” I look and see, dirt on our bed. He uncovers my legs, looks at my feet and sees a small oak leaf stuck in between my toes. He takes it off and asks if I was outside. I replied, “In my dream yes.” He says, “babe that was no dream you’ve been having”… after that day he barricaded and secured our bedroom door.
