The following report was sent into our website by Amanda on August 14, 2011:
“The first time I have ever seen something that could not be explained except as “a black shadowy figure” was when my sister and I were at the ages of 5 and 8. It was our first house since moving out of my grandmother’s. In the summer, the house would get so hot upstairs that we had to sleep in the basement. My parents would sleep on the pull out couch, my younger sister and I would sleep on the twin mattresses that were beside the couch. My parents had enough of sleeping in the basement and it was our last night to sleep in the basement. Out of nowhere in the middle of the night everything was off, the tv was off, the lights were off, and my sister was sleeping on the right side of me towards the tv that was against one wall. That was until she woke me up and where I was sleeping she pointed to the left corner on my side and showed me that there was something sitting on the chair underneath the window. I looked and I seen this black shadowy figure just sitting there and wouldn’t move. My sister and I both hid under the blanket and yelled, calling for my mom and dad but they didn’t hear us from upstairs. When I looked out towards where the black shadowy figure was, it was gone. So we just hid under the blanket and fell back asleep. The next morning we both look towards the window and there is nothing there that could have been seen like that, no coats, blankets or anything hanging. To this day we still don’t know what that could have been, or why my sister just woke up scared out of nowhere in the middle of the night and seen that.
In 2005 my grandmother passed away, so we pack up, move back to her house and lived there. When my parents went out for a while, my sister and I decided to watch a movie. We had one lamp on and everything else was off. Out of nowhere the tv shut off on its own, the remote was on the table and we definitely did not turn it off. We were so creeped out, we turned the tv back on then we hear the radio turn on in the kitchen. We both run in and turn it off. We sort of thought maybe it was our grandmother showing us that she was with us. Who knows, but that’s what I like to think of it as.
While living there, again in the middle of the night I woke up to a weird feeling yet not being able to move, open my eyes or say anything. I was so scared, I wanted to cry. I felt my eyes tear up but still couldn’t do anything. A few mins later I was able to move, I sat up and moved around and felt some relief but with a little bit of fear. A feeling I never ever wanted to feel again.
In 2010 I was lying in bed and my daughter, a few months old, was in her room sleeping and my boyfriend was in the kitchen feeding the dog outside the door. All of a sudden I seen this black shadow, like someone walked into the room. That definitely was not possible because it was just my boyfriend, my daughter and I at home. I was in shock, I called to my boyfriend and told him I seen this shadow as if someone just walked in and he was a bit freaked out. We were both in the bedroom and all of a sudden you hear something bang on the floor. We both walk out, looking in the bathroom since that’s what it sounded like. It sounded as if my daughter’s bathtub fell down but it was already on the floor. We look towards the front door and her carseat part was on the floor. We were definitely freaked out because it’s been up there for so long, it’s odd to see it fall like that.
These are some of the experiences I have been through since seeing it for the first time. I definitely do believe there is something else other than humans out there. Since then I haven’t experienced anything but do have this feeling of always being watched.”
