The Shadow Man.
I was about 9 years old when I saw one. I am a 21 year old female now, and I still remember that night like it was yesterday. In the summer I always would get shipped off to my God father’s house in Mojave, CA. I had no protest on going there though because I loved to hang out with my cousins and explore the desert. It was so different from the busy city life I lived in.
I can’t recall what the town’s name was that they lived in but it was extremely small. Everything was walking distance, and when it’s dark in Mojave it’s pitch black. Only the light of the moon can be seen when it turns to night. I had two cousins that I did everything with, we were practically sisters. The Eldest, Ashley, was 14 at the time and her sister Maxine, the youngest was 7. I was in the middle at 10.
Maxine and I, being the youngest had a much closer bond with each other. We would always play barbies in her room, I always hated her room because it had a cellar door right in the middle of the room. We would always throw heavy cinder blocks on top of the door just in case any monsters would try and open the door and eat us while we slept. Come to think of it I hated their whole house because it always made weird creaks and bumps in the night. It was just a plane old, creepy house if you ask me.
So one night, as me and Maxine are sharing her bed drifting off to sleep, my eyes catch something lurking in her door way. My eye lids fling open and I stare at this thing, I couldn’t stop staring at it no matter how much it started freaking me out. But what freaked me out even more was that I could make out the shape of this shadow. It looked like a tall, thin man wearing a trench coat and a top hat. Scared shitless now, I try to make Maxine get up and turn on the light so I wouldn’t have to stare at this thing that looked like it was creeping in closer and closer each second.
“Max..” I whisper. “Go turn on the light..”
“No..” She whispers back to me.
We lay there motionless until I whisper, “..you see it too don’t you?”
“Yes.” She squeaks.
We lay there paralyzed, scared out of our little minds because what we where seeing right before are eyes was getting even closer. I grabbed her hand and clenched it, then excepted the fact that I was going to die right then and there. Maxine clenched my fingers tightly back, I gathered every bit of courage I had left in my little body and jumped up out of bed and stared that figure right in it’s face. I seen no eyes, only darkness as my fingers reached and flicked on the lights. There was nothing. Nothing was in the room. There was no figure. I looked at Max who looked back at me in shock, we know what we seen. It was there. I shut and locked the door and we slept with the light on the rest of the night.
In the morning we described to my Thea what we seen. A man with a trench coat and a top hat. Ashley comes out of the bathroom and asked what all of the hub bub was about. We told her what happened, she then looked puzzled and grabbed a piece of paper and started to doodle. She held up her artwork to us.
“Does the guy look kind of like this?“asked Ashley.
Ashley had drawn a figure with a top hat and a trench coat. Maxine and I both started freaking out because she drew exactly what we had seen. How could she have known? We asked her and she told us she had seen this shadowy figure just standing in the corner of her room every once in a while. The thing is, Ashley’s room is on the exact opposite side of the house from Maxine’s room. And yet, we have seen the same exact figure.
Fuck Yeah Nightmares Mod James: !!! 8/10 That is quite spooky, thanks for sharing the scares!
