So this either can be used as a graveyard story video, a Halloween story video or a shadow figure story video. I’m leaving that up to you. ❤
Okay I’m 22 year old female now. But this story took place on Halloween 5 years ago when ever I just turned 17.
So my friend Shelby and I were hanging out at my friends Kystals house. We were sitting in Krystals room wondering what we could do that night.
We thought about going to a costume party that night that one of our senior class mates were having. But we all dismissed this idea, because Halloween fell on a weekday that year, and there would be no way our parents would let us go to a party on a school night. That and, we were too cheap to go out and buy a costume to go.
I suggested the idea to carve pumpkins. Lame I know, Shelby and Kystal let me know real quick how lame it was too.
Kystal suggested the idea we go find some haunted places in town to explore. Which we all thought was a great idea. Now I’ve had a few run ins in my life with the paranormal, I do believe in spirits, and demons, but I was still skeptical at times.
So a night out ghost hunting with some of my friends sounded awesome. So we all started looking up on our phones place in town that were rumored to be haunted.
And then I pulled up an artical about a haunted cemetery just outside our town talking about the haunted grave of Sadie Baker.
Now the legend in my town was, that a woman named Sadie Baker that lived in that area, in the mid to late 19th century. Sadie was known to be a witch by the town’s people, and because of that, she was buried alive. The people that buried her placed two Stone slabs on top of her grave. So because of her being a witch, She wouldn’t be able to rise from the dead.
But people say that, her ghost haunts the graveyard where she was buried. And if you go there, and place an offering of dollar bills her tombstone, she won’t bother you, but if you sit or leave pennies on her tomb stone, her ghost will push you, or the pennies off.
So telling my friends this, we all decided we had to go check it out, because it sounded so cool to do on Halloween. So we all pile in my friends Krystal’s old yellow Volkswagen bug, and we make our way to the graveyard.
Once we got there, we realised that the graveyard was way bigger then what we originally thought. So we all split up and started looking for Sadie Baker’s grave. After an hour of failing to locate the grave, we meet back up together.
Shelby: Are you sure this is the right grave yard??
Me: Yes I’m positive. I just can’t believe we couldn’t find the grave through.
Shelby: Maybe it’s just a hoaks, and there’s no such grave of Sadie Baker.
Me: But why would there be pages and pages about her grave on the webb if it didn’t exist.
Krystal: I don’t know, but yall need to figure something out soon, it’s getting dark and we didn’t bring flashlights. And I am not spending the night in a grave yard on Halloween.
I looked up at the sky, and realised how dark it was getting, and she was right. We didn’t think to bring flashlights, and I wasn’t gonna be lost in the dark in this cemetery either. So we all talked for a minute, and decided that we would just go, and look up another haunted place, since we couldn’t find the grave.
But as we were leaving, I noticed this section of the grave yard that was fenced off from the rest. And all of the graves in there looked older than the other graves we looked at. I stop my friends, and turned their attentions to the fenced off part of the grave yard.
Me: Did y’all look here for her grave??
Krystal: No? I just noticed this part, now that you mentioned it.
Shelby: Yeah, how did we not noticed this before. We had to of past this part to get to the other graves.
Me: that’s weird, but guys I’m certain her graves in there.
Shelby: How do you know that for sure?
Me: Just look how old the graves are y’all, I’m telling you, her grave is in there.
Krystal: Megan. I don’t know about going in there. It looks. Really creepy.
Shelby: Yeah, and it’s gonna be fenced off for a reason; I’m not going in there.
I looked back at the fenced off area of the graveyard, and I noticed that it was a lot darker then the rest of the graveyard. It kinda creeped me out, and I noticed it was visibly creeping my friends out too. But I was not ready to give up finding this girl’s grave.
Me: Come on y’all, if we all go in there together, I’m sure nothing bad will happen, let’s just go in and check it out. And then we’ll leave, I promise.
Kystal and Shelby looked at each other with worried looks and then looked at me.
Me: If we lock our arms together, and walk in at the same time, will that make you guys feel better?
My friends chucked at this suggested but agreed. So that’s what we did, we locked arms, Krystals on the right side, myself in the middle, and Shelby on the left. We all looked at each other and laughed.
I’m sure if someone saw 3 teenage girls locking arms walking around a graveyard, they’d think we’d look ridiculous. After we laughed at ourselves for how dumb we looked, we walked maybe 3 steps into the fenced in section of the grave yard, and we all froze at the same time and locked out eyes on something in the distance.
All 3 of us noticed a dark figure in the center of the fenced in graveyard. We all though it was a person at first, but then It turned it’s body torse our direction, we all noticed we could see through it. The figure before us, looked like it was looking at us.
Me: guys do you see that?
Krystal: What the actual fuck.
We all just froze for a good minute, and didn’t say anything else. We just stared at the dark translucid figure about 8 yards away from us. The figure it’s self like I said, was dark and translucid, but not all the way. It was blurry, like dark static on a broken tv. And then the figure started to move its head from side to side, like pondering about what to do. And then suddenly, it started to slowly move torse our direction.
At this point, I hear Krystal and Shelby yell,” fuck no!! “Hell the fuck no!!” And I feel them let go. But I for some ungodly reason, could not move or look away from this figure moving slowly closer torse me. It was like I was in a weird trans kinda state. But I suddenly hear Kystal and Shelby screaming my name out in the distance and for me to run.
And that did it, hearing them screaming for me snapped me back into reality, and I ran like I never did before away from this figure and torse my friends bug. I look at her car, and Krystal is in the driver seat, and Shelby in the back with passenger side door open, and their both still screaming with their arms stretched out the door for me to get my ass in the car.
I literally super man dove into her tiny car, and Krystal stomped her foot on the gas, and we peeled out of there like bats out of hell. I sit up and close the door, and for a good few minutes, we are all silent. Until I broke it.
Me: guys. What the fuck was that?
Shelby: I have no idea, please tell me you saw it too Kystal.
Krystal: of course I did you dumbass! How could you not miss that damn thing!! What I don’t get is how Megan just stood there staring at it like an idiot.
I didnt answer her because, I myself still dont know to this day why I, quote on quote “stood there and stared at it like an idiot.” I don’t know why I asked what it was in the first place, because I know exactly what I saw. Like I said previously, I’ve had a few run ins with paranormal before, and I know what we experience and saw was, a shadow figure.
After Krystal and Shelby realised they weren’t gonna get an answer out of me. We just drove the rest of the way back to Kystals house, in silence. We were still just too spooked and dumb founded to discuss what we just experience.
When we got back, we said we’d never go back to that cemetary, or tell our other friends about our exspeience, because we were afraid they wouldn’t believe us, and they would go find out for themselves. We still to this day haven’t gone back to that cemetery, and I know I never will.
