By Chaotic Dusk
First, I’m going to give some background. This took place a year and a half ago in the area where I live. It was the fourth of July so we were doing the usual of setting off fireworks in the cul-de-sac with the other people who live in and around there. This means everyone in the area surrounding the cul-de-sac was there.
I was sitting next to one of my friends ,and around half way through she taps me on the shoulder and points over to an area between the houses. I look over and we both see a male figure dart away back into the darkness.
This person looked like how shadow people are described – Just completely made from darkness.
My friend was freaked out but we didn’t mention it to anyone else. So my friends and I had decided that after the fireworks we were going to play ghost in the grave yard. If you don’t know what that is I’ll explain now. One to two people go and hid as the ghosts well everyone else shuts their eyes at the safe spot and counts from noon to midnight. Then everyone goes alone or in groups looking for the ghost and when you see them you shout “Ghost In The Graveyard” and everyone runs to the safe spot trying not to get tagged.
So me and the friend I was with earlier go off together in the direction we saw the shadow figure. So me and her are walking behind a fence that runs next to the main street of our neighborhood. I look across the street and see that same figure walking next to my neighbors fence I look at my friend and she’s looking at it too. I know this wasn’t anyone from the game cause we weren’t going across the street for the game it stays in the six houses surrounding the cul-de-sac.
So we were understandably spooked.
We watched as the figure walks along the fence only to disappear once it reached the end. A few moments later, we hear someone yell from the back of the cul-de-sac, “Ghost In The Graveyard!” So, she and I ran back to the center. After a few more rounds, which she sat out on, we all went home.
We still don’t know what we saw, but we know it wasn’t human.
