**MODS, PLEASE READ QUOTE BOX** I hope you guys have some good stories! I love talking about these things and I'd be really interested to hear about your experiences. If you don't have any personal experiences with this kind of thing and you've heard about something a friend or family member experienced, feel free to share that. The more, the better! Here is my own personal experience - I will try to keep it as short as possible When I was very, very young, probably like, 4 or 5, I used to live in an apartment with my brother and parents (obviously). My brother and I had to share a room together. We had bunk beds at the time, I used to sleep on the bottom and he had the top. For some reason, on this night, I slept on the top bunk beside him (no homo/incest weird shit, you guys and your crazy thoughts) - I don't know why, but that night, I just did. I don't remember what time it was, exactly, but it was very late and it was pitch black in my room. The only light was the moonlight illuminating through the cracks of the blinds or whatever. My brother woke up before me and saw a figure standing in the left corner of the room, right beside the closet. He didn't think anything of it and fell back asleep. He then woke up against and saw it in the other corner, near the door that lead to the little hallway, again, he fell asleep, not thinking anything of it. The last time, I woke up at the same time as him and this figure was standing in front of the closet door. Remember, my room was pitch black, you could not see anything at all, but somehow, you could see this figure perfectly. This figure was darker than my room, it was darker than a pitch black room. I immediately started crying once it started to slowly walk towards us. The 'shadow person,' as it's called, was huge. It was very tall, it's head was not that far from the ceiling. It very, very slowly walked towards us and I was bawling my eyes out in fear. My brother used to sleep with his baseball bat for some reason, I don't know why, he just did. The top bunk had a railing to make sure nobody would fall off of it - the only opening was at the bottom left corner of the bed, where the ladder is. Once this figure got right at that spot, I was pulled off of the bed. I was sleeping on the inside, right at the wall and my brother was on the outside, closer to the ladder than I was. I felt my leg get pulled, I was pulled off the bed and I am not fucking around, my eyes are actually watering as I type this. I hit the floor, crying my eyes out and screaming with fear - my brother swung at this figure with his baseball bat and hit nothing. My dad came into the room shortly after and turned on the light, once he did, the figure was gone. Just like that, the figure was gone. What's strange is that my brothers baseball bat was broken at the handle, but he never actually hit anything. He never hit this 'shadow person,' he swung at it but didn't seem to hit anything - there was not damage on the walls, the railing of the bed, there was no damage anywhere, but still, his baseball bat was broken somehow. It wasn't broken prior to swinging it at this figure, it was broken afterwards and it made no sense as to how it could have broke like this if he never actually hit anything. I know some of you guys won't believe me, simply because you don't believe in this kind of thing - but, I know what I saw and what I felt. There's no way I can prove it, of course, but both my brother and I, we know what happened that night and we will never forget it. Still, to this day, it scares the shit out of me. I really wish it never happened, it's a horrible memory and the scariest moment of my entire life. At just 4-5 years old, I remember it like it was yesterday. My eyes seriously watered when typing this, I don't know why, but any time I talk about this kind of stuff, my eyes water like crazy, lol. Well, that's all I am going to write for now. I believe it is long enough and I know most of you guys don't like reading really long posts. I have a few more strange experiences that went down in my life and I will be sure to post those later if you are interested to hear them. Other than that, I hope you guys enjoyed, as much as I didn't, I felt it was worth sharing with some of you guys that may have had some really strange experiences that cannot truly be explained. Thank you to those who took the time to read it. I look forward to reading yours, so get writing and posting!!
