Subject: these are my experiences with shadow people
I have always wondered if what I was seeing was true or if I was just crazy and it was all in my head but since it has happened to me more and more often, now, I believe they are real.
My first encounter with one was when I was maybe like 11 or 12 years old. I was at my grandma’s house and I was outside in the back yard by the porch. I got pretty bored so I went inside but remember seeing a figure that looked like my grandpa on a bench that was next to the house. When I went inside, my grandma told me to tell my grandpa that the food was ready, so since I thought I saw him there. I went outside and tried to find him but didn’t. I checked the bench where I saw him and cycled the house yelling his name. I remember seeing him sitting on the porch looking down at the grass as if he was sad and put his hands on his knees. He looked like a shadow all black. I then decided to look inside the house where I found him lying on his bed. When I asked him when he came inside, he told me he never went out side; he was in his room the whole time.
Now I’m 17 and all of a sudden I keep seeing these shadow people more and more often. When I lived with my mom in our old house, I saw shadow people that would look into my room. They would never come in but they would just stand by my door and poke their head in and look at me. I would usually be playing videogames or watching TV or drawing but when I would turn my head to see them, they would disappear like if playing hid and seek… then reappear once I turned my head around again. I would also see little shadows like of a big rat, lizard, snake or cat run really fast under my bed or next to it. Their figure was a little more of a smoky color but I knew they were animals because they looked like them. I would always be surprised and shocked because when I would look under my bed nothing was there. My recent encounters are a little more freaky. We now have a moved and are living in our new house but I’ve been seeing a little girl and some one else here with us too.
A couple weeks ago when I babysat my little bro, I was in my mom’s room folding the laundry and I saw what appeared to be my little bro walk into my mom’s closet which is pretty big. When I saw him, it looked to be like 3 or 4 feet tall, toddler size and walked normally but fast. I noticed he never came out so I went and checked on him and no one was there. I started getting worried and look all around the house for him and found him watching TV. A couple days later I realized it was a little girl.
I went to sleep and next to my bed I have an amplifier with a lamp on top. I couldn’t sleep that night; I was tired but just couldn’t sleep and when I turned over, I saw what was a little girl standing next to my lamp, just staring at me. She was small, like the size of an average 3 or 4 year old. She had long hair. Then it was like she started moving back and just disappeared into the night. I’ve been seeing her more and more often. I keep my door closed at night but I don’t lock it. And I have a couple days when my mom comes home and tells me I left my door open, but I never do. I figure it’s the little girl opening my door because, one night I was online minding my own business, but left the door 2inchen open. I then saw what appeared to be that little girl by the door but on the outside of my room in the hall. At that point, I was ok and calm. I started to freak out and feel so cold, that it was hard to move my fingers, when I saw the door move! I then closed my door shut and went to sleep later on at night like around 11:30. Maybe what woke me up was the sound of my door opening which I locked! It scared me but no one was there. And my mom’s door was closed.
Every time I go in my mom’s room I get this weird feeling like someone is there with me and I’m not alone. I’ve been trying to find some answers or at least communicate to her but can’t, but its nice to know that there are other people out their like me. I give you permission to publish this if you want. I’m sorry if my story was too long I have many more but I just fell like those are the most interesting. If you know anything about how maybe I can contact the little girl… please tell me if it’s not ok to.
