Hello all, After reading all the stories people have put up I decided to recall if I had anything past memories or “hauntings”.� Now I’m not a full skeptic but most of the stories I read I tend to think are made up. (Most likely because I don’t really want to experience it first hand). But enough of that and more to my own experience.
My memory begins living in my old house in North Mankato, Minnesota. I was around 10 or 11 at the time, I’m currently 20 now. I cannot recall exactly when I began to see this shadowy figure in my room, but from when I first saw it till the time my family moved I saw it every night at exactly 1 am. I shared a bunk bed with my older brother, who always wanted top bunk, which left me with the bottom.
One night I had woken up, something that was usual for me.� I opened my eyes and felt something… else was in the room with my brother and I. Looking over to my right I saw this shadowy figure, who was standing next to me. If it was watching me or my brother I have no idea. This figure had no facial features to it other than it resembling a boy’s shadow(height wise). I also got a feeling that it was male. But no sooner had I saw it, it began to run towards the small floor vent near the bedroom door on the other side of the room. The closer it got to the vent, the smaller the figure became until eventually it slipped into the vent.
The odd thing was that it never missed a night. It was always the same routine, wake up, look to my right and… boom it ran to the vent. I’ve never told my parents or anyone for that matter about my personal experience. I have asked them if either my parents or grandparents have had similar paranormal activities, which I found that my Dad’s side of the family has a history for paranormal sightings. I kinda hope I don’t have natural affinity for this sorta thing. Well that’s my story, has anyone else had similar sightings?
