When I was fifteen I had a series of strange things happen to me at home. Every night I would read before going to sleep. This one particular night was the same as usual, I’d turn on my radio, pop open a book, and gradually fall asleep.
But something was different as I woke up for no reason around three or four in the morning only to see two ‘entities’ quietly standing on the right side of my bed. My radio was still on and my book was lying on my chest. I could see them quite clearly as they seemed to glow. I didn’t feel scared but I felt confused and I was thinking to myself, ‘is this actually happening?’ The beings were blacker than the actual dark but seemed to have glowing edges, they were small but I could tell they were not children, and they wore clothes. The one closest to me wore a hat and the other a dress or something with no other discernible features.
When the entities noticed that I had seen them they started blinking. That’s the best way I can describe it. Almost as though they were changing color. Then in a matter of seconds they ran into my closet. I remember not being scared only confused and disbelieving what I had just witnessed.
A few days later I started to tell my dad what I had seen in my room and he cut me off by asking if I was talking about the shadow people. I told him I had. He told me that he saw them in the kitchen at times too. But to his eyes they were completely solid.
I saw these ‘entities’ several times, and still do from time-to-time. They have never tried to contact me, or scare me. I get the feeling that they are trapped in this house. I don’t think they are self-aware either. They seem to replay the same situation over and over in a loop. In my bedroom, they look towards me and run into the closet. Downstairs they stand in the door and stare until they fade away. On the stairs they just stand and look either up the stairway or down the stairway depending on whether they are standing at the top—or at the bottom of the stairwell. I wonder sometimes if these ‘entities’ are actually just a scene played over and over again? A time loop?
I have never seen them change their routine. Has anyone else ever seen this sort of thing?
