This is another type of phenomenon that I'd LOVE for someone to explain, especially because something similar occurred to me less than a year ago
(although no "repetition" seemed to be involved - in other words, whatever it was I only perceived it once).
There is a short underground passageway - under a city street (not an avenue, nothing particularly wide, just an ordinary two-way street) - near my
former home that I used to cross every day for many years (until a few months ago, when I moved). I was so familiar with it that I could walk through
it blind-folded, if necessary.
The day that I am talking about (it was early evening, actually), I was walking towards the stairs that lead down, into the corridor. There were two
or three girls hanging around the entrance to the staircase (nothing extraordinary so far ; )). When I was about 15 metres or so from the entrance,
suddenly a blood-curling scream came out of the passageway. The girls obviously heard it too, because they all turned around and looked towards the
stairs, to see who would emerge or what would transpire.
What immediately struck me as strange was the fact that, after the scream, NOTHING, no sound whatsoever, was heard - and this is a passageway where
the echo of every single step resonates right to the top of the stairs. That worried me: I was afraid that I would find somebody lying there - and I
didn't even have my cell phone with me (to call for the ambulance, if needed). The girls just stood there, as if frozen, and watched me descend the
But there was something else that I also found very unusual: unless the person who screamed had been alone all the while, I should have heard the
steps of whoever made her (it sounded like a woman) scream like that, even if that person was going in the opposite direction. Moreover, I should have
SEEN that person emerge on either side of the street. There was time enough for me to see him/her while I was still walking towards the stairs - the
passageway is not a very long one.
But I didn't see anyone coming out of the passageway on either side of the street, and I didn't hear anything.
That worried me even more. I braced myself for a possibly unpleasant encounter (cursing myself all the while for having left the phone at home).
But there was nobody in the passageway. It was completely deserted, and no steps were heard anywhere. There was no sign of any unusual going-on
anywhere; and certainly no sound.
As you can probably gather, I only mentioned the girls because they were my only "witnesses", my only proof - to myself (not that I am prone to
inexistent "sights & sounds" ; )) - that they had heard it, too, and from the very same direction. (There was no other place around from which an
echoing sound like that could've come, anyway.)
Has anyone else had a similar experience?
