I'd like to point out before i begin that i consider myself a sceptic, i don't hold any belief in god as some of you may know from my posting,
however i do not know how to explain what happened tonight, so i thought i would post here, if only to validate my own sanity that what i saw was what
i saw and two people didn't experience the same hallucination.
Excuse any typographical errors, it's pretty late here. For those of you who live around here, the first cemetary is in Deeping St James, the second
where we both saw things is in Market Deeping, near St Guthlacs.
Entered cemetary near childrens playground, walked to the end then stopped. Sam reported strange lights, but most likely reflections of street lamps.
We crouched on the grass to rest, the gravel path was clear and nobody was around, however clear footsteps were heard coming toward us, down the path.
No disturbance was noted in the gravel, however the low light levels did impair visibility further down. I myself also saw human shadows in the
corner, however it is very possible that this is the result of misidentification. As we left, nothing else was heard.
Later on, We got some food, and, as the safest area is near another graveyard, we sat near there to eat. Shortly after we'd finished Sam saw some
lights close by. I went to have a look, they turned out to be security lights in the distance, but as i walked back i noticed a blurred figure
crouching near a gravestone. It was whiteish and semi translucent, with long hair and seemed feminine, or was a slight male. I looked at it for around
10 seconds, then turned back to sit back down. She asked what i was looking at, and i explained what i saw. We sat back down for a while, then got up
to go. We went out of the gate, then i looked back, where we were sitting there was a whiteish, vaguely translucent figure sitting on the bench where
we were. It was, from how far away i was looking straight ahead. We turned round and walked away. About 2-3minutes after we left, we both suddenly
became incredibly cold, (a noticable difference from the surrounding environment) and we both turned round. Standing near the gate was a figure, which
we stood and looked at for around 5 minutes. It seemed darker, but as we were further away than at any previous time i couldn't tell whether it was
the same thing as we saw before. Although it seemed to be again translucent. I, for some reason had the distinct feeling we weren't welcome, so said
out loud 'Sorry we'll leave now'. Then we both saw it turn to the side and disappear. Now after this we walked off, moving to the nearest shop to
get a drink, but we then realised we would have to walk past the area again in order to get to the bus stop so i could get home, if we didn't it'd
have been a massive detour. Sam seemed incredibly scared, but for some reason i wasn't. We walked near it again and stopped as she had to text
someone. I was looking over the graveyard, but saw nothing. Again, nobody around, mildly cloudy and quite a few stars visible. She finished with her
phone, she noted on the sense of unease which i also felt before she said. At this point we again heard the sound of footsteps, look round but see
nobody, so continue to walk toward the main road. We still feel troubled, but didn't exactly run away. Nearing the exit, i got the uneasy feeling i
was being watched, so turned round - standing just within the boundary of the graveyard was a figure, pitch black, red eyes, pretty solid except
seemed.. fuzzy at the edges. I'd estimate it was a bit taller than i am, and i'm pretty short for an adult male, 5'10. Looked at it for maybe 30
seconds, then turned to face friend, she'd run off, i caught up with her and she didn't see it, just felt an overwhelming wave of despair come over
her at the same time i'd turned round.
So there we have it.
