Since I've been a kid, I've regularly seen a dark one that looks like it's in a cloak with a hood...It usually didn't go away when I looked at it. I'd see it standing in the space between the open door and the wall of my room at night...That was freaky.
Then one night when things were getting particularly bad. (More than just the shadow person was there)...I went to be with my mom in her room. She had to go run to the loo for a bit, and she left the light on so it would help....Sadly though, it really didn't. I sat on the bed, and looking straight at me, visible as ever was the shadow man...There was also a red orb thingy by it about 3 or so feet away. The shadow man was maybe 2 feet from the end of the bed. But anyhoo. The red orb thing wasn't solid...It was kind of wobbly and looked like strings of red light circling around a spot...pulsating too.
The shadow man just stood there, and then I don't remember too much after that...the both of us just looking at each other. Like it was waiting for something, watching me. Then there's just like a blank space there in my memory.
Then after that bit of blankness...I didn't fall asleep or anything. Mom was back, and then we were waiting until morning...I tried to close my eyes to hide myself from everything I was seeing, but in the darkness behind my eyelids the things were still there. Horrible monster things...Like all associated with the shadow man. Talk about no escape. Oh, I was being raised as a christian at that time, so we tried to pray and stuff, but nothing was working.
So, I tried to just find some sort of inner calm on my own, other than Jesus, and it worked.
I felt a bit better and then morning came.
At the breakfast table, I felt way way better...There was this really pretty blue commet looking thingy, with a white tail thing slowly moving around the table, the chair legs...me...protecting me. I didn't tell anyone about that...I knew it was good and safe. :)
Anyhoo, that's when I was a little kid, maybe 5-
After that night, that exact shadow man has always been there in my life...(I think before too) Watching me grow up, waiting for something. Sometimes its presence grows stronger, other times it wanes. But it has always been there.
When I moved to another town, it followed. Its stronger in some houses than others. The first house I moved into in this town...When I was about 9 wasn't too bad. I mean it was always in the shadows, and the basement and several rooms were worse than others. I think it was harder for it to materialize directly in that house. It'd be in another room as I walked by, in the doorway or something and I'd see it out of the corner of my eye. Or it'd be in a corner or dwelling in the shadows a bit...Like clogging all the normal shadows with its presence.
It's been in my dreams too...Like reaching out to grab me...It's kinda freaky. It's always the same one though, with the same presence. Then when I wake up from those nightmares it'd be standing in my room. Creepy.
The next house I moved to in this town was creepy in general.
The shadow man would be in my dreams more in that house than any other. One night, I was having a nightmare about it, then I woke up...Terrified. I turned over in bed. Flipped on the switch and pulled my knees up to my chest in bed. My eyes were drawn to the end of my bed, and creepily enough there was an invisble something crawling up my bed...Leaving imprints as it moved towards me...Yeah, i jumped out of bed and ran out of that room.
Another time I was sitting on my bed in the middle of summer reading a book. It was a still night, no wind, nothing. Everyone in my family was in the opposite side of the house.
All of a sudden I felt something. I looked up from where I was sitting on my bed. The lights turned off and my twin balcony doors slammed shut. So, I high tailed it from the room again.
I expected it was a prank, but no one was in that side of the house. There was no wind...the doors didnt' just shut...they slammed shut. Like wahbamm! Besides, there was that feeling I get when somethign strange happens.
Umn, also in that house I'd hear footsteps like people following me up the stairs. I'm pretty sure it was haunted. If I ran up the stairs the footsteps would wait a bit and then chase me up. I could feel a presence behind me. In the halls and stuff too. Also, I got an image of a little girl when I was standing right at the doorway of my room. I decided, I must have been intruding on her space...So, I decided to move my bed to the other side of the room. That helped a bit.
Then I sprinkled salt around my room and asked whatever was in there to peacefully leave. That worked for a bit, but whatever was bothering my came back.
There were times in that house that I didn't want to go in when I got home from school. I'd go up to unlock the door and there would be an awful feeling inside of me, like I shouldn't go in.
One time, I saw a shadowy like man (different than my usual stalker) dash away from the door (there was a glass window so I could see in) and dart down the hall Yeah, I didn't go inside until other people got home.
The apartment I live in now, is the newest one, and I really hoped that nothing would follow me there.
I was lucky for awhile, but eventually usual shadow man did. I went to walk down the hall to my room and it was standing at the end of the hall. It watched me for a bit, then disappeared. (Like it's keeping tabs on me).
It'll be there every now and then just keeping up on me.
I did more research on shadow men one night, and it watched me. I looked over at it, and it was kinda almost angry, almost amused at me...Every time i'd look away from it (back to the computer screen) and then look back, it'd get closer. So I abandoned that research and headed outside. I almost always feel better outside. Almost always.
I was walking to my boyfriend's (at the time) house at night. And it was like there was something following us. The shadow man...Like following, waiting for something awful to happen. It freaked me out a lot...It felt like it was following my and sucking out my energy and something else, stealing something away. I don't know...It was awful. (That was the most recent strongest occurence). Then after awhile, it went away and left me feeling awful...and messed up a bit. Then things were better for awhile that night...
Now, I'm at my grandparents house, and it's been in the shadows again...Ech...So yeah. There's me. I get stalked by a shadow creature...I call the shadow man. :P
Oh, often just before the shadow man comes theres usually a little creature that comes, or a feeling that's the same...blah. I call the little creature the messenger. It's ah...well creepy....Usually though, the shadow man has been coming more on its own...
Well, there's me...Comments?
