This happened when I was about 14 maybe 15 (I am 22 now). Back then I was living with my mom and her boyfriend at the time. We had just rented a house that was about 100 years old which had been vacant for awhile in a very small town called Mt. Olive, Mississippi.
Anyway let me start off by saying that there was something “off” about this house. A lot of weird things have happened. For instance it gets very humid in Mississippi during the summer and the only cold room in the whole house (not cool like freezing cold.. day night didn’t matter) was my room.
We knew the history of the house.. there were ghostly orbs, demons, shadow people, may gnomes (because nothing was ever where you last saw it) nobody had moved it either… Anyway so like I said I was 14 maybe 15 at the time and I had taken my moms dog out to use the bathroom in the front yard. I was sitting on the top wooden steps of the front porch keeping an eye on my moms dog while she found a spot to pee when all of a sudden I see this tall dark figure stand at the edge of our front yard (mind you it was dark and we had our porch lights on and our front yard is not very big) “It” was tall about 6 feet tall. I could see no outline of his face or clothing at all… and trust me I would have been able to see the face and clothing even if it was a black man wearing black clothing. I yelled at “him” to get off our property.
What happened next sent chills to the marrow of my bones. A second after I yelled he took off running towards our back yard as a human with two legs and then started crouching down and started running on four legs.. and I mean like dog legs.
As it passed by, my moms dog started bolting for the front doors almost jumping from the ground to the porch and missing a good 5 or 6 steps. We ran inside. My mom and her boyfriend were in the living room which was to the left of the front door. They looked at me and asked me if I’d just seen a ghost. I told them what I saw. At first they didn’t believe me.
My moms boyfriend went outside to make sure and came back inside and said he didn’t see anything.
They very next night around the same time (approx. 9ish at night) my moms boyfriend saw it in the house! After that night we packed all our stuff up and left.
