Reader Submission: The Demonic Entity

shadow person

“I lived in New Baden, Illinois with my boyfriend and our four-year-old daughter. We lived in a green mobile home haunted by a demonic entity.

When we first got to the home, I saw something shoot down the hallway. I said, ‘There’s something in here with us, something not human.’ My boyfriend said I just needed to get used to the new surroundings, but I know what I saw. It was a black, human-shaped shadow, and it ran down the hall every time I took a shower. My daughter’s closet was on the other side of the wall, and she saw him too.

Every night, I closed my daughter’s closet door before she went to bed. Every morning, I found it open. I said, ‘Baby, if you’re afraid of the bad man in the closet, why do you open the door?’ She said, ‘I don’t. He does.’

She described the man as fat and red with funny-looking eyes. I drew several different types of eyes, and she picked a goat’s eye as his. I froze inside. I didn’t know what to do, so I yelled into her closet, ‘You’re brave enough to pick on a child, so come impress me.’

Well, it did. It floated a jar off my nick nack shelf right in front of me. I said, ‘Okay, I’m impressed. Now go away.’ It then showed itself to me. It was awful. I instantly felt sick and very scared, but i love God and my faith is strong. I later went to my boyfriend’s mother, and she gave me a picture of Jesus and a picture of Mary that had been blessed at the church. I hung them in my daughter’s bedroom, and all the activity stopped.”
