Reader Submission: The Shadow Man

shadow person

“This happened when I was around 14 years old, and it still keeps me awake at night.

I’m from India. We had just moved to our new house in Delhi, and my mom was out shopping and my father and younger sister were in the kitchen cooking dinner. My elder brother and I were in the study room and were sitting facing each other with a lamp between us. It was a rainy day, so there was a power cut. Our father asked us to finish our homework before dinner, however we were chatting and giggling in a very low voice so that our father could not hear us.

All of the sudden, I realized that my father was coming to the study room. It was dark so I could only see a black figure coming towards study room. I whispered to my brother, ‘Shh, Shh. Papa is coming.’ He turned around and saw the shadow too, so we both started staring at our books. After a second, I saw my father enter the room from the corner of my eye and he was walking in a weird. He was facing us and walking sideways close to the wall. I looked up and smiled at him, and only then did I see his big, red eyes and twisted hands. Within a second it disappeared in the corner of the study room.

I was shocked and I shouted to my brother who was still pretending to study. He turned back again, saw that my father wasn’t there, and started running towards the kitchen. I followed him. We were both terrified and told our father there was ghost in the study room. He didn’t believe us, but we knew something was there.”

The Rocking Horse

“One night when I was maybe 10 – 12 I had trouble falling asleep. My bedroom was the entire top floor of our house with my bed and such being on the left side and storage closets and a play area being on the right.

I was lying in bed when I heard a noise from the other side of the room and saw a rocking horse begin to rock. It was sitting just outside one of the storage closet doors. It proceeded to rock its way halfway across the room and stopped dead under the ceiling light. At this point I was freaking out and just buried my head under the blankets and never peeked out again until morning.

It was all confirmed to not be a dream as the rocking horse was still in the middle of my room when I woke up. Furthermore, I got a stern reprimand from my parents for being up out of bed playing with my toys well past my bedtime. Their bedroom was directly below the storage closet/play area and had heard the creaking of the rocking horse shuffling across the room.”

“I was very young, around four-years-old, I think. While it’s hard to remember events from such an early age, my mom was present and backs up my memories of the ‘man in the big trench coat and hat.’

Reader Submission: The Shadow Man

“I moved into a townhouse with my son when he was 1 1/2 years old. It was an end unit, a small two bedroom. Soon after moving in and unpacking, I started hearing a lot of knocking and footsteps. I brushed it off as our unit was attached to a three bedroom unit. I assumed it was noise traveling through the walls. It also seemed that I was always looking for things that I just put down, finding items where they did not belong. My son would talk to and play with ‘imaginary’ friends.
