“I was sitting in the room near the backyard, sliding glass door in front of me. I am on my laptop when I hear a tapping on the sliding glass door… I look up to see a hand pulling away from the door.

This hand was a dark grey-purple, and it’s fingers were about as long as my entire hand was. When I got up to go see wtf was going on… it was entirely gone.

Some background information on me: I wasn’t sleep deprived, I hadn’t drank anything, I have never smoked (or done any sort of illegal drugs), and I hadn’t watched any TV shows or movies with aliens in them.

Only explanation I can think of is ‘oh fuck, it was an alien.’”
