I slowly turned my head and right there in the doorway about five feet from me is the solid black outline of a person just standing there. We stared at it for a good minute or so not saying anything and it just gradually faded. Then we all looked at each other just awe struck.
They had never actually SEEN anything like that before, mostly just sounds, smells and feelings and maybe a fleeting shadow like one time. Needless to say we were all just flabbergasted. I could barely sleep when I got home. To now KNOW that these things are real. It was amazing, not even really scary. I just had to share though. So one night I was visiting my grandma. She lives in the middle of po-dunk nowhere here in the deep south. I give her my best explanation, not thinking much of it. It would lay in the bed with her and talk to her.
She said it never felt scary, just kind and comforting. She did not sense that it was my grandfather or step-grandfather. Still it freaked me the eff out so I slept in the bed with her that night. Sleeping alone or sleeping where the shadow person sleeps. I was around 4 — 5 years old. Anyways, the house I lived in, my brothers and I swore to be haunted. The basement was the worst.
Ahead of you is a doorway to the laundry room, and the left of you is a hallway, at the end of that hallway is two rooms on your left and right.
The Shadow People: a short horror by Erin Cole
My older brother stayed in the room on the left, and his friends would NOT sleep over because of a shadowy figure in his closet always staring at them, or so my brother claims. The room on the right, is where my uncle stayed in… Now this where it gets fucked up. My older brother was babysitting my twin brother and I, and we all played hide and seek, my twin and I went hiding, while my older brother seeked. I ran into my uncles room on the right, and into his closet. I sat down on the floor, and I felt a hand on my shoulder. I went upstairs to the living room and both my brothers were sitting on the couch asking where I hid.
Fast forward a few nights, and my older brother was babysitting again, only my twin brother went grocery shopping with my mother and uncle at around 7 pm. A tall, dark, shadow man walks out of the closet and my brother books it out of the room leaving me behind.
The shadow figure walks towards me, and stops in front of me. I proceed to run out of the room and down the hallway, up the stairs and by then, my uncle, mother and twin brother got home as I started crying on the stairs. A few years ago, I get around to asking my uncle if his room was creepy in that house. He told me that a shadow man would sometimes walk out of his closet and would sometimes stand at the foot of his bed.
The shadow figure only came around once every few weeks. My uncle knew but vowed never to tell us. Anyway, it was around 3am, my sis was downstairs watching the telly, and my room was upstairs and I had to go to the bathroom. Now, the bathroom faced a flight of stairs, and you could always see the glare from the light of the street illuminating the livingroom and whatnot downstairs, but this one time, because I always looked downstairs while going to the loo, there was no glare, there was no glow from the telly my sister was watching, all I could see that one time, was this amorphous blackness walking up the stairs, or hovering, I dunno, it was the first time in my fucking life I felt this terror within me, I froze then and there for a couple of seconds, but when I could move, I ran to my room, turned on the lights and sat on my bed trying to figure out what the hell had just happened.

That house was fucking creepy, man. It was years ago when I was still a teenager in high school. We had a bonfire, hot dogs, marsh mellows, the whole nine yards. Very fun, enjoyable memories. She lived in a trailer. And next to her trailer was a trailer that had been abandoned for what seemed to be a few years.
It was overgrown by weeds and basically looked like it was falling apart. I was told that the woman that lived there had actually passed away in that trailer. Who knows? Teenage girls like to scare other teenage girls. I remember we decided that we were going to go poke around the place. In the dark, yes. I think maybe one person had a flashlight.
