Subject: Shadow figure

Here is my story of my experience I had with a shadow figure:

Approximately 12 years ago, when my son was 2 years of age and sleeping in his pram in the main living area; I was standing in the kitchen (which is located off my main living area), I was standing parallel to my kitchen door.

It was approximately 10:30 am in a midweek morning; I had dropped my daughter off at nursery and was standing leaning against my kitchen worktop, looking through some of my bills, calculating what I needed to pay.

My television was on low in the background; the usual morning programmes on, nothing different that morning. It was a bright, dry spring day.

I was focused looking through my paperwork when something black and moving caught the side of my eye. When I turned to look, I expected nothing to be there, but froze in shock to see, in full vision, a very tall, black mass that appeared to be full human (shape only), with no features but normal looking outline. There was no obvious gender but it appeared tall and masculine in shape and size.

This figure moved at a normal human pace, it was not slow or fast, but walked at a steady pace. The figure had full legs and arms, of normal proportion; I could visibly see legs and feet walk along the floor. The figure walked behind my kitchen wall.

After I froze, I panicked and rushed to close my door. I stood shaking for approximately 5 minutes, which felt longer.

Without registering that the figure did not have features or clothing, I immediately thought someone had entered my home and I was at risk and my son who was asleep in his pram.

I called my step-father and said someone was in my house. I thought I must have left my front door unlocked when I returned from nursery. I was absolutely terrified and was expecting someone to come bursting around the wall and attack me.

My step father came to help but called to me from the front door and said my door was locked and he couldn't get in. I was terrified to leave the kitchen to answer the door. When I did, we checked the whole house and there was no one in the house, the figure had disappeared through my living room wall.

The shape was very tall, black in colour and walked at a pace similar to humans with arms and legs moving. It did not appear to look at me, but was difficult to tell with no facial features. I felt immediately threatened.

I haven't told many people as I still can't believe what I saw, but I am sure of what I saw.

We had a few other experiences in the home around the same time, but I had to move as it was too uncomfortable I.e. Digital alarm clock switched off regularly, causing us to sleep in. I would regularly feel as though someone was sitting down at the end of my bed during the night.

Watches and spoons would go missing.

Bedroom lights would go on and off.

My daughter would have tea parties in her room with "the man".

It all got too much.
