Encounters with the Hat Man

Posted on August 27, 2010

When I was in foster care in 2007, I was sleeping like a normal child would early in the morning, but for some very odd reason, I woke up. When I opened my eyes, I looked up and that’s when I saw a dark figure standing next to my bed, it freaked me out so much, I threw the covers over my head to cover this up, I stayed that way for two minutes, when I felt it was safe, I took it off and it was gone.

Something that was scarier that same moment, when it disappeared, I looked next to me and I swore I saw my little sister lying right next to me, smiling, I repeated the cover again, when I took it off, she was gone as well. After those two mini-events happened, I turned over facing the wall and fell asleep again.

The second encounter was my third day back home. I was in the kitchen making myself a midnight snack like I normally do, when I was making it, something told me to go ask my mom something (she was asleep at the time), when I did, once again, I saw that same dark figure standing right next to her door, I stared at it for a brief second, but I turned away to make it go away, and it did just that.

Both times, it looked just like the photo I saw on the Shadow Creatures page (Shadow Creatures), but the one I saw didn’t have the spiked ends on the outside of it, it was a near straight line, but with the same exact hat.

I told my mom and older sister about this, and they both told me I encountered a demon. Seeing I’m Christian, they suggested I pray about it, and this Sunday is just what I’m going to do.

Since those two encounters, it hasn’t happened for some strange reason, and I hope it never does again.

    You don’t have to wait until Sunday to pray. Prayer isn’t just for in church, it is for every day, every hour if need be. I don’t believe big barney’s comment about being plagued by it for the rest of your life, because I saw a shadow person ( i would describe it as looking like the Undertaker(a wrestler) in my backyard ONCE and that was probably 12 years ago, so don’t listen to that!
