Hi Muzzleflash, my name's Jen & I'm from South Africa. Bored the other night I randomly decided to do a little research on something that occurred
when I was much younger (I'm 22 now), I was quite taken aback to actually find relating information on this topic & got goosebumps when reading about
your experience.. Thought you'd be interested to hear mine & if there is anyone reading this that could help shed some light on what took place I'd
be very appreciative as it's freaking me out now.. My story is as follows: I was somewhere between the ages of 6 - 8, my mum had gone out for the
evening (my gran was home but definitely asleep). I can't remember the exact time, could've been any time between 7 & 9 (perhaps a little later), I
was in my mum's room playing with my dolls in the corner with my back to the open door (I never leave doors open since then), I remember so clearly
having a feeling suddenly come over me that I was being watched, I was a bit scared, then too afraid to turn around completely I strained my eye to
look to side (I had turned ever so slightly & very slowly), I saw what I remember to be a 'wolf' figure (this is what I can't find info on), it's
head was at the very top of the door looking directly at me - watching me, it's 'paw' was curled around the door edge (like a person peeking around
the corner you know), it was definitely very tall, & it was dark grey, resembling a werewolf type of creature but not quite so vicious looking - it
also didn't resemble the typical 'husky type look' that normal wolves have. I was so frozen with fear, trying not to even make breathing movements.
It stayed there, as it was, watching me for about 10 minutes, then moved away (not fast or slow - normal pace), I assume it left completely, I got up
& closed the bedroom door straight away. That was it. When my mum got home later that night I told her about it, & obviously thinking it was my
imagination told me she had sent an angel to look after me while she was out.
It's never happened again since, just that one time that is a perfectly clear memory in my mind. I've mentioned it a couple times to few people over
the years, didn't really invest too much thought in it although every time I think of it I get totally creeped out. I'm a very realistic, logical, &
sensible person.. This is something I've never been able to make any sense of. It undoubtedly was not imagined or made up, as I said the memory is
still so very clear. There was no particular smell or sound, it was dead-quiet & I wasn't tired, half-asleep or anything. It was out of the blue, I
don't think I had even developed a proper concept of what ghosts & spirits were when I was that age, it didn't cross my mind back then. I've never
suffered from sleeping difficulties, & I can count on one hand the number of nightmares I've had (none that could relate in the slightest way to this
'being'). Not sleep or dream related at all.
So that's my unexplained experience that I've carried in the back of my mind for so long. If you do come across any information regarding these tall
strange things that 'spy' on people, please let me know. It'd be interesting to get some kind of better understanding of these happenings.
(Kinda puts a weirder spin on things, huh?)
