unwelcome guest – Duplicate

This happened many years ago, but I can still recall every detail vividly. Some back story. I am usually a skeptic when it comes to things like this, preferring scientific logic to explain what goes bump in the night. Sadly even I have no explanation. Anyways, at the time we lived in a 100+ year old farm house. The kind that has a coal chute and stone foundation. We lived in a small lake community in New York, so houses were close together. Sometimes too close.

I always had an uneasy feeling while living in the house. Like even when you were alone, you weren’t really alone. Despite the fact the basement was incredibly creepy…it had three separate rooms that had their own lights that had to be turned on individually…nothing ever happened there. I know, shocker. We’d occasionally see shadows out of the corner of our eyes, drop in temperature, hear random voices..but nothing too freaky.

One night when my kids where little, I went downstairs to get my youngest something to drink. I prepare the bottle and notice it’s unusually cold for summer. Not really giving it any more thought I make my way back to the staircase. As I got to the stair I looked up and immediately froze. It felt like my heart had just stopped and my muscles forget how to work. Standing at the top of the stairs, outside my kids bedroom was a tall, dark figure. When I say tall, I mean it almost touched the ceiling. I could tell it had a wide brim hat on. While it was dark-ish in the hallway/stairs…this thing was a shade of black so deep there was no mistaking it for something else.

Not Your Average shadow person

Before this house, I didn’t believe in ghosts, after moving out, I haven’t seen another one. I am the first person to pick apart a video or a picture that is a hoax. That said, I have a story for you.

I was younger, about 10 years old, when I encountered the weird world of the paranormal. We’d just moved into a new home; it was the last house down on a dead end dirt road. The only other home on this street was our neighbor to the right.

He was an old man, could barely walk, and completely blind in one eye, and mostly blind in the other. I heard my parents mention he had daughters before but I never actually saw them. According to my parents, they were just waiting around for their dad to die. Pretty depressing, actually.

Golf course shape shifter

I live in Florida specifically the nature coast. I was only 12, and had a room to myself. We lived on a 15 hole golf course and knew many of the residents. When I was walking my dog a fairly small pup he was, next to some woods. I was stopped by a golfer a a old women I’ve seen before, she fed the cats. She said I better keep a close eye on my dog and to not let him wonder far. She told me that her cats and many people had pets going missing and many people seeing large coyotes during the day. I figured it was just a sick coyote.

One night I was laying in bed. I had a room to myself like I said, it had a sliding door to the pool area, which was screened in. I had woken up with a bad feeling like I was being watched.

The moon was bright and I’m sitting in bed and swore I herd shuffling. I looked at the slider door. I had my curtains covering it up. Then a shadow, a very manly shaped figure walked pass my door. I froze, I slowly got up to make sure my door was locked. Once I locked my door I looked out side, nothing. Then I took a better look, we had trees that made a perimeter around the house to prevent golf balls from breaking stuff. That’s when I seen the figure in the tangle of trees it walked behind a tree.

It liked my Yodel

To be frank, I don’t honestly know with any certainty what what I saw that day but it flashed straight to my mind when I saw the snow outside, so bare with me… This happened to me when I was very young very small and equally timid. I am now thirty one and this happened when I was only seven. It was an uncomfortable time in nearly every conceivable way but I don’t think noire that this influenced this bizarre experience, but that’s not the point…

So the third biggest blizzard in my life hit that winter and in about two days dropped a record three feet of deep snow covering every inch of my sleepy mountain town and a good amount of the surrounding area. Having grown up theprevious five years in the Mojave Desert this was an absolute system shock for the record books.

In the course of the day my folks had repeatedly made us desert flower children leave the warm safe confines of our house for the harsh winter cold.

Exploring abandoned hospital

Me and my best friend were always into horror movies and creepy stuff so it was naturally for us to explore such places to get the goosebumps. Most of our tries were disappointing beecause nothing rlly interesting happened.

Once i went to visit her in the city she studied back then and while going to buy some groceries we spotted a big abandoned building next to a hospital so we decided to get close to see what is it supposed to be. We felt rlly drawn to that building, it was like the moment we saw it, we started immediately walking towards it. When we went to the fence that was surrounding it we saw sign saying that the place is abandoned psychiatric wing of the hospital that was right next to it. It said the building was in ruins so its dangerous to go inside. Right next to the sign there was a hole big enough for a person to go through with crouching. We decided to leave the shopping for later and went in.

I checked my phone battery so we can see if we will have enough of it to make a video with the flash on. It was close to full so we carefully went through the fence and on the ground floor of the hospital. It was full of wrecked items, shattered glasses, abandoned old wheelchair and all sorts of thrash, the doors were missing so we could peek slightly in the rooms. There was a staircase to the second floor and we decided to take it since the ground floor was full of those stuff i noted above.

Shadow Dog

So my story isn’t too long, nor is it terribly excited, but it WAS scary! I can’t remember my exact age, but younger than 13 for sure. We were living in a small apartment, and I shared a room with my younger sister. So all of the lights in the apartment are off, save for the nightlight outside of our bedroom door. My sister had a headboard, and a footboard while I did not.

Our beds were parallel to each other as well. I just so happened to look down at the bottom of my sisters bed. Crawling out from underneath was a massive, black, dog. It appeared to be a Doberman, with pointed ears and glowing yellow eyes. The footboard was maybe about 3 feet high or so, and this thing was only crawling out. It’s was easily past the board. It was like my noticing it made it stop, because I never once saw it move, and it never took its eyes off of me. It was the middle of summer, and I only remember because I hid under my blankets and gods was it hot. I stayed there not daring to look out until I fell asleep.

I’ve told a few friends about this, doubting they’d believe me. I only recently told my mom, who didn’t believe me. For a while I believed it was a hellhound, and I’ve only ever seen the creature once. After hearing another story of someone encountering a shadow dog, I thought maybe that’s what it could be. Either way I really don’t want to see this thing again, whatever it was.

The Ghostly Shadow

I was around 8 or 9 at the time this experience takes place.

I have dealt with sleep paralysis multiple times in my life and it’s never pleasant. This night was quite different. It was around 3 in the morning and I woke up in the middle of a sleep paralysis episode. I started to panic a little but quickly calmed down.

Until I saw the thing at the end of my bed. It was tall and sitting on the railing of my bed. It was simple black, with no face, or any features at all really. By this point, I was freaked out but I still couldn’t seem to move. I glanced back up and the thing started crawling towards me.

At this point, I was home with my aunt since my parents were out of town for a couple days, and she’s a pretty heavy sleeper, so when I screamed, she just kept sleeping away.

My House is Haunted

This first encounter happened like 8 months ago. I was just lying down getting ready to fall asleep. I had my computer on with a tv show on for background sound. So with the computer open there was a little bit of light but not enough to completely light up my room. I was laying on my back when I heard a loud motorcycle or car drive by and lifted my head up to see the car light race around my room. At that moment I thought I saw something in the corner of room. I thought for a moment that it was just the shadow of something from the car light.

Then the fear swept over me when I realized the car was long gone. I’m almost certain that the thing standing in the corner of my room knew that I was in a state of fear because it slowly started to move towards me. The detail that made me know that it wasn’t human was when it was moving towards me there was no movement that showed steps. It just moved towards me like it was gliding across the floor. It kept coming closer till it was basically leaning over me standing next to my bed. I felt a frigid chill lay over me. I pulled my blankets over my face in fright. When I peaked my eyes out to see if that thing was still there, it wasn’t. I was relieved and went back to sleep. But every night I get a little worried that it will visit again.

My next short story was only 1-2 weeks ago. I was in my room with my door open waiting for my mom to come home. I was watching youtube videos. I had just finished a video and I heard a car pull into the driveway. I got up and waited for a second because something didn’t seem right. I heard the front door open. I slowly still a little skeptical started to head downstairs. I heard my mom walking through the house to the living room. I got downstairs and checked around and no one was there. I just realized the situation I was in and looked outside and saw no cars in the driveway. I bolted up stairs and almost dove into my room.
