My doppelganger story 2/u/bicchlasagna

This is the second encounter I had with my doppelganger. This is the only time I saw this entity with my own eyes and it still creeps me out to this day, 11 years later.

This happened back in December 2011, close to Christmas Day. I was on vacation with my family. We stayed in a small 2 storey house in a gated community.

A family friend of ours let us stay at this house since they had moved abroad years ago. The house had 3 rooms, 2 upstairs and 1 room downstairs facing the kitchen. I stayed in one of the upstairs rooms with my mom, 3 year old sister and my old brother. I was 11 at the time so I still remember this incident clear as day. Like I mentioned eariler, this was a gated community so it was usually very quiet at night. And apart from the lights from the houses and the street lights, it got pretty dark.

For context, I've never been afraid of the dark. I've always believed in ghosts, spirits and stuff like that since I was raised religious. And I always prayed before going to bed.I still do occasionally, mostly out of habit but I'm not that religious anymore. But the idea of encountering a ghost never scared me, due to my childhood home being haunted. My parents, my siblings, all encountered ghosts there but I had never seen an apparition or anything of the sort up until this point. I did hear the occasional footsteps, doors being opened and closed, weird noises, you know, the cliché stuff.

This happened one night after the usual day of shopping and sightseeing. We came home pretty late and I went to bed around 11:00pm. I slept on a mattress next to the bed with my head next to the foot of the bed. There was a small cupboard directly in front of the mattress. I'm pointing this out for later as it's important for the context of this story. I got up around 3:00am to go to the bathroom. I'm a very light sleeper so even if I wake up during the middle of the night, I won't be half asleep or anything like that. I was wide awake when I went into the bathroom and got out. I picked up my blanket to lie back down, and as I did, my eyes landed on where the cupboard was, and I just froze. Literal chills ran down my spine. There, sitting cross legged, directly where the cupboard was, was this figure of a young boy, about my age and size.

I looked closely and observed him. I noticed that he wore the same pyjamas that I was wearing. The same hair, same t shirt, same everything. Then I realised that I was literally staring....at myself! I tried to scream but nothing came out. My body just completely froze up and I almost fell backwards. When my voice finally came out, I just screamed for my mom. She woke up and quickly turned the lights on. She had a puzzled look on her face and asked me what was wrong. I couldn't speak and just pointed at the cupboard. And there it was, the cupboard was back where it was supposed to be, no more apparition. Whatever I saw, had completely vanished into thin air.

I was able to go back to sleep that night but it did take me some time. I slowly fell back asleep, all the while, staring at the cupboard. Whatever I saw that night, I still can't give a logical explanation to it. I'm glad that at least my family believes me. Since I've never been afraid of the dark, I was never the type of kid that made weird shapes in the dark and got scared. For the longest time, I just brushed it off as my imagination as I got older. Mainly because this was just too scary for me to remember. Until my Mom encountered the same entity years later. So now I know with absolute certainty, that I didn't imagine this. But that's a story for another time.
