Reader Submission: A Brother’s Visit

weird shadow

“It was around 6th grade when I was about 11 or 12. My sister and I shared a bedroom, and we had both fallen asleep in the same twin-sized bed. It was around 2:30 a.m. when I randomly woke up and turned to see a shadow at the foot of the bed, facing my way.

It was glowing slightly blue, but very transparent. It was a male who looked anywhere from 19-26 years old. We just stared at each other for a while, eyes completely locked, both of us frozen. I wasn’t scared until I blinked and suddenly he wasn’t there anymore.

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.’

Reader Submission: The Man at the Door

“My father always argued that a near death experience was the result of chemical processes in the brain.

This all happened Wednesday night, 2/15/17. I returned home after my husband had taken me out for a fancy diner the day after Valentine’s Day because it would be less busy. After we got home, he went to bed and I stayed up watching YouTube.

At 11:30 p.m., I heard someone knocking on the front door and it sounded like they might be trying to break in. I started yelling, asking who it was. It was a police officer.

I told him to hold on. I ran up and told my husband to get up and come down…’It’s the police.’

My husband talked to the officer as I hid behind the door. The officer asked for me. I came out from behind. He then said something that knocked the wind out of me. Mom couldn’t reach me by phone. Come to her house. My father’s in the hospital.

A Walk in the Dark

“A strange thing happened one night when I was a young girl and my beau and I were walking home from church. The night was very dark. No stars were out, and of course there were no street lights. It was just one of those nights when everything is pitch dark, like a heavy fog over everything.

We were walking along, but not too fast as it was summer and I wouldn’t see Jim again ’til the next Saturday night.

One minute we were moving along all right and then Jim suddenly pulled me over saying, ‘Look out.’

At first, I thought he had seen a mud puddle, but he hurried me along and when I asked him what was the matter he said, “Nothing. I’ll tell you about it later.”
