To set the record straight, I never was a full believer before, I always hoped that there was something beyond this life and I was partially
interested in the paranormal.
A good ten years ago my father took photos of my cousin outside his house which showed an old man in a room, there were 3 or 4 photos and he appeared
in them all, this is what reallt started me thinking there was something.
What really did it for me was last night.
I was walking down my path to my flat which is on the first floor, I can see my main living room window from the street where I drive in, now I know I
turned off all my lights before I left, so I was surprised to see the light on. I quickly ran to my flat expecting it to be broken into, to my suprise
the door was locked with no damage. I went into my flat, and just as I went in the light turned off, now I can see my only llight switch from the
door, that spooked me out big style
So I did what anyone would do, search the flat for anyone in who wasn't supposed to be there, flicked my light switch on and off about 20 times,
checked my main fuse box, everything was ok....
I put it to the back of my mind and made dinner etc, during this time I felt that there was something in the kitchen with me, strangest feeling I have
ever had, I had goosebumps and the hairs were standing up on my neck.
So, when I was having dinner I was watching TV and checking my email, and I just saw something move out of the corner of my eye, ignored it and
continued to do what I was doing, I honestly think now I was trying to convince myself there was nothing there.
So about 12oclock I went to bed not thinking about what happened earlier. Just lying with my eyes falling shut my bedroom door banged opened and hit
the wall with a huge bang, I jumped out of bed and ran into the hallway, of course there was no one there, flat door locked and key still in. Just
when I turned round I saw a really black dark shadow standing in my living room doorway, I was frozen stiff, I didn't know what to do!
The shadow started to move towards me, man I was craping myself, sod it I thought no point staying here, I turned and ran out the flat just in my
About 5mins later, with me freezing my ass off outside my flat door, my next door neighbour arrive in from a night out. He obviously asked what the
hell I was doing outside in my underwear, I told him and probably quite rightly he didnt believe me. Now with the old dutch courage in him after a few
beers, he went inside alone. He came out in about 30secs absolutely white and shaking, he said that he had seen a dark shadow standing in the corner
of my living room.
After about 10 mins outside we decided to go in together, there was nothing there, and the atmosphere felt better. He stayed for another half an hour
or so, and then left, I went to bed lying awake, must have fell asleep and woke up this morning with nothing else happening...
Wel, thats my story, what does anyone think.
Edited for spelling...
