I know that what I am going to relate to you folks is inexplicable, and that it seemingly breaks the laws of physics as we know them, and that it
makes almost no sense at all, but I am still going to tell you what I saw and describe it in detail for this thread. This happened roughly 10 days
ago, not sure exactly.
Background. My wife and I are staying temporarily at her parents house with our 2 kids, and all of our belongings are in various relatives storage
areas as we are finding a new apartment to live at currently. We will probably be in a new place within 10more days from now.
We are in a very small town with the population of only a few hundred, spread out through this valley deep in the forests of Pennsylvania at the
moment. Extremely rural location. All the buildings in this run down little village seem to be 100+ years old, often remodeled or rebuilt many times
over the years, and even build on the remains of prior structures.
It's virtually surrounded by heavily forested hills, and swamplands in all directions. There are farms and fields, but they are in limited areas
still leaving plenty of dense brush around. It gets super foggy at night here too. Very freaky old town with vast histories. There were events here
during the French and Indian War, Revolutionary War, etc in this very location. I do not know what went on, but I am sure you are getting the
There are ancient houses around here up in the woods and swamps, that are totally in ruins and dilapidated in the extreme. Completely overgrown forest
hiding them from view unless you trek through the woods to find them.
Anyways, now to the story itself of which this thread is about. I just wanted to set the scenery for you of what I am currently going through.
This really old house we are staying at, is very large and 2 stories. Like 4 bedrooms.
My wife and I were suppose to sleep in the upstairs bedroom in the middle of the hallway, which used to be her brothers room. Well we had been
sleeping on the couch down on the ground floor a few nights, I guess because we were watching TV down there in the living room.
This night we decided to sleep up in that room on the bed. It was maybe 4am roughly.
As I was falling asleep and losing my awareness of reality, my brain was subtly giving me images of toiletry and my body had an urge to go downstairs
and take care of business. So my brain woke itself up in order to visit the toilet and then I planned to come back up to really get to sleep and crash
However as I opened my eyes, I saw a bizarre shadow at my downway, as if someone was looking in the room.
I saw it rather clearly, and it was 8 foot tall all the way up to the doorseal at the top. It was outside in the hallway. There was a dim
orange-yellow light illuminating the hallway, so I could see out there well.
The way this thing reacted was absolutely perplexing. It was almost as if it was just staring at my wife and I, and once it realized I was laying
there staring back at IT, it moved to the side to go away. It like slowly moved to the right and All I saw was it's shoulder-type thing. Then, the
shoulder moved away and it was gone. I immediately jumped out of bed and ran to the doorway to see what this thing was. Hoping in my mind it was just
my wive's dad checking to see if we were in that room. But no one was there. In fact, her dad was staying out in the camper in the backyard that
There were NO sounds in this incident, it was 100% quiet.
When I leaped out of bed to chase this thing, I yelled "What the F was that??!!!!" and my wife woke up instantly freaked out as well asking me what
I told her what I saw, she got up with me and we searched the house etc. Our 2yr old does not want to sleep upstairs so we were worried about him on
the couch downstairs by himself. I absolutely refuse to leave my kids alone at night in this house now, and am extremely stressed by my encounter.
I have had prior encounters with the inexplicable in this house before years ago. But what I encountered in the past is what I would term more of a
Ghost event. This shadow thing I saw, I just do not think it is a ghost for various reasons.
I have been doing research on the Shadow thing phenomena since this encounter. I have found many interesting theories and stories that correlate
exactly to what I witnessed. Other people have seen what I saw the other night, and I almost feel like I have a post trauma stress going on as a
result of this totally wacked out encounter with the unknown.
This thread is written in haste, as I have little time this morning to write it. I will continue in the next post.
