Crouching Ghost, Hidden Motive: A True Tale of the Paranormal

24 April 2017 | Haunted houses, Shadow people, Your True Encounters

When I was twelve years old, my family lived in an old house in Texas.

It was a four-bedroom house. I shared my room with my baby sister and my brother and parents had their own rooms. The last room was used as an office. Every night when everyone went to sleep they would close their doors except for my room. I don’t know why… I just didn’t like my door closed. We had an extremely long dark hallway.

One night, when I was the only one awake, I was watching TV as usual when I saw a tall male figure in the corner of my eye peek into my room and when I turned to look he would back up and hide. For some reason, I didn’t really feel bothered by it so I just kept watching TV and once again I could see him peek in and out my room and every time I would look he would disappear. Eventually I just fell asleep because it was so late.

On this one evening, I was in the kitchen making food and from my kitchen you can see the hallway. Well, while I was making my food in the corner of my eye I saw the tall shadow man again! Just peeking and I couldn’t really see his face but every time I would turn to look he would disappear but he would always reappear every time I would not look in his direction. It was so weird and creepy but I didn’t feel afraid.

Finally, one night everyone was asleep except for my brother, who had his girlfriend over, so their door was cracked opened and there light shined into my room. Well, I was asleep and for some reason something woke me up and when I opened my eyes there was a clear view of a man in my room staring into the hallway! He didn’t look at me, he looked like he was hiding from someone. He seemed worried and scared. I was so shocked I could not move. I was seriously on stuck mode, eventually I snapped out of it and turned my lamp on and when I did that he turned and looked at me and slowly vanished. I was so spooked I slept the rest of the night with my light on.
