This happened in 2006, when I was in 5th grade. I had just come home from school and I was home alone, because my parents didn't come home until later and my two younger brothers were at daycare. We lived in a two-story house, except that the second story was really just a hallway. As you head down the hallway, there's a bathroom on the left, my parents' room across from it, my room right next to theirs, and my brothers' room that acted as an end cap and no windows through out.
When I came home, I had grabbed a snack and started upstairs to change out of my school clothes. Nothing out of the ordinary: I was walking down the hallway to my room, but as soon as I passed my parents' bedroom door, I heard the doorknob jiggle.
The bathroom had a window and the door was open, so it was just a little bit of light shining into the hallway for me to turn around and see the bedroom door about halfway open and wrapped around the edge of it was a hand. It was a dark green hand with long, leathery digits and sharp, yellow nails. I stood there, staring and sure that my eyes were just playing tricks on me. But after a couple seconds of silence, I saw the hand slowly retreat behind the door and I could hear the dryness of the skin rubbing against the wood.
I guess I was too shocked to really feel afraid, so I reached into the doorway and felt along the inside wall for the light switch. I found it and flicked it up, then looked around the room and of course found nothing.
