Shadows in My Home

28 May 2019 | Haunted houses, Shadow people, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I have a story from when I was about 14 years old around 1999. I’m 34 now.

I grew up in Portland, OR and our house was haunted. One night I was walking down the hallway to go to my bedroom and I saw a full black shadow figure run across the wall. I remember freaking out and running while grabbing my sisters (I was babysitting as my parents went out that night) at the time, 4 and 5. I ran up our driveway terrified, knees shaking trying not to cry out of fear. I remember it having a large brimmed hat and dark. I got the courage to go back and try to recreate it but I couldn’t.

Same night I’m still watching my two little sisters. It was getting late so we went to bed, a bunk bed, my sisters on bottom and I’m on top bunk. We had a two bedroom home and one bathroom. My sisters are both fast asleep, I suffer from insomnia so I was up. I’m just staring at the door that was half closed and all of a sudden the hall light comes on and the bathroom light, foot steps and the sound of the medicine cabinet opening/closing. Foot steps and light goes off. I didn’t see a shadow indicating that someone was physically there nor seeing anyone. How the home is laid out, I’m able to see anyone going into the bathroom. My parents still aren’t home, so it wasn’t them, and my little sisters are fast asleep and by now I’m in full blown panic fear. What happened next I tried to recreate the next day but failed .. window is closed. Heater vent is on the opposite side of the room. The door that is half closed all of a sudden closes right before the latch and opens halfway, this repeats 4 or 5 times before it just stopped open a little wider than it originally was. I tried physically moving the door but couldn’t get the impossible speed the door was doing. We had carpet in the room so there is resistance when closing/opening the door. Needless to say, I was terrified that night.

I’ve had other experiences in the house I might share at a later time. Thanks for taking the time to read if you do and hope you enjoy this experience I had it’s still a terrifying one to me.
