I have been fascinated with ghost stories ever since I was a child and I grew up seeing shadow figures passing by on my peripheral vision, there are times I also see faceless entities walking about in broad daylight, I never considered myself to be a clairvoyant, but I really do encounter strange things. This story about the most terrifying experience I had with the supernatural, it happened during the time when I came back to my family home for a vacation.
Because of my work I had to live away from my home, it�s only been one year since I was away the time this story happened, but it felt like a very long time for me. The night I arrived home I noticed that the house felt dark and gloomy, I ignored the feeling because I thought that I was just tired from my long travel. After a few nights I kept having this unsettling feeling that something weird was going on with our house, my suspicion was confirmed one day when my younger sister talked about a strange old lady that she kept noticing standing upstairs on the walkway overlooking at people on the ground floor.
At first I thought it was kind of weird because I have been seeing shadow figures walking around the house, a middle aged woman with a fuzzy face, a young girl wearing a white sleeveless shirt, but I have never encountered an old lady before. My sister described the old woman as a scary looking entity with messy black and grey hair, and the striking feature is that this lady always looked angry with furious eyes. I wasn�t sure if I could believe that because there�s no way a new entity would just move in inside the house and my sister is not that very keen on seeing stuff like those (not that I know of.)
One night I was going to get a drink of water from the fridge at the kitchen, there was nobody on the first floor at that time and there was nobody else at the kitchen either. As I walked toward the fridge I felt pins and needles sensation rising up from my spine and my head began to feel bloated and very heavy. Being a paranormal enthusiast I immediately realized that this is a sign that there is something paranormal going on at that very moment and that was confirmed when I looked up to the first floor walkway and saw a hideous looking entity.
It was the old woman with eyes full of anger staring straight at me. I instantly froze for a moment as fear gripped my whole body and I was trembling. I mustered some courage and yelled out to the entity saying �you don�t belong here!� and told it to go away, after that I dashed off to the living room where my sister and mother were watching TV. Then I went back to the kitchen area (yes folks I went back) to see if the entity was still there, and I was relieved to see that it was gone.
Since then we never saw the entity, and the house was not dark and gloomy anymore. In addition to that incident, a strange thing happened, one of the trees on our backyard suddenly shriveled and died for some unknown reason, other plants and trees around it were unaffected, but after that I never noticed any shadow figures anymore nor the frightening old woman. Although I have read articles that relate spirits with trees and plants, I�m not totally sure if those entities inhabited that particular tree, it may not be totally related, but it�s something worth speculating over. You can say what you want but it really did happen, I also have other experiences, but that would be another story.
