The Shadow Man Who Messed With My Blind

 

I have always found ghost stories, videos, recordings, or anything paranormal interesting. But I've also had my experiences.

When I was 4 years old, I remember waking up in the middle of the night, and hearing footsteps outside my room. I was very scared because the footsteps stopped right at my doorway. I called out "daddy?" and there was no answer. I got out of bed and walked to look out into the hallway. No one was there. I could feel my heart pounding so fast it may have been in my throat. The only reason I called out for my father was because there was a shadow of a man on my door, the shape looked like my dad. The shadow was very still and only twitched a little bit. I called out daddy again and the figure ran away. I jumped back into bed and cried myself to sleep, as scared as can be.

When I was 13 I was upstairs in my room listening to music and reading a book. Typical teenage activities I guess. My parents were going out of town and just as they were leaving the house, I turned my head to look out my window when I saw the blind shaking furiously. I was only staring at it, wondering what the heck was going on. The blind lifted away from the window slowly and then was slammed against the wall. I never said anything but ran out of my room. I was breathless when I reached the bottom of the stairs. My parents looked at me like I had erupted in a panic attack. They looked at me and then at my room. I told them what happened, and they said "oh honey, the wind probably blew it into the air." Wow, okay, of course they wouldn't believe me...

I am now 18, and haven't really had any more incidents. But thinking back to the blind incident I believe that the man I saw was the one who was messing with my blind. The man hasn't hurt me and is not aggressive. I think he is mischievous, and maybe protective. I thought he was my dad when I was 4. Maybe he was trying to let me know that he's there and that I'm not alone. I sometimes feel that I am. I believe that he may have had a daughter and misses her or something. Maybe that's why he's always with me. I don't talk to him; I don't want to provoke him. But I'm not scared of him. And I love having him around. He is warm when I can feel his presence in my room. But I want to know what my readers think. If you think you might know why he is with me I'd really appreciate it, thank you

Thebirdofmysoul - I am doing well, thank you 😊. Since you do have a very valid reason for wanting the story deleted, send a message to the administrator of the site, Martin, and tell him why you'd like the story deleted. You can go to the home page and at the top there is a "Contact" link. Just follow the instructions 😊.

Theredbirdofmysoul - why do you want to have your story deleted? I would say 50% of the stories published have an argument or two in the comments section. Your's wasn't any different.

If your story was true, why would you want it deleted? The past is the past. You've apologized for your behavior, which is admirable. So, unless you have valid (and I mean very valid) reason for wanting your story deleted, I'd leave it alone and just start fresh.

oh my god... Ok ill tell you what I mean by "pushing the button twice" when I uploaded my first story, my computer froze for like one second, and me being the impatient lil punk that you seem to think I am, (btw I do have manners) I clicked the button over and over, so therefore I hit the button twice and it got reviewed and it got posted, I don't know any other way to explain it, I am not lying, I'm telling the truth, but you people can choose to believe I'm lying, everyone else does anyway, have good day all 😐

Very interesting story here, Theredbirdofmysoul. I have kind of come to the conclusion that maybe it was the wind that blew the blinds up. I've seen blinds do that on many occassions, and they are not being messed with my Spirits, that's just how blinds can be. I want to add, that you are never alone in the world. You will always have a Spirit Guide around you, or even a Guardian Angel. In one way or another, none of us are ever alone.
Love & Light, Rachel ❤

Did I just say that? "You're she's not your mother" was supposed to read "She's not your mother" I don't know how I could have made that mistake... Maybe I hit 'publish' twice by mistake? 😉 Naaw! I screwed up is all.
See how easy it was to admit my mistake? And I promise, it didn't hurt one bit. 😊

Theredbirdofmysoul,

Your right... Freedom of speech...it's a great thing... So are manners and... And believe it or not People will 'tune' out foul mouthed little punks like yourself.

I'm sorry you seem to think you hit 'publish' twice... Heck you may have... But site records show that those two times happened greater that 24 hours apart... So...

You know what, I've wasted enough space here... In you own words...Goodbye.

Respectfully?,

Rook

redbird,
Let me just answer for granny here, if I may. NO! You're she's not your mother, and I can tell you right now, she's probably happy for that. You see, I've met a couple of her kids. You know what they've got that you don't? MANNERS!

redbird: About your ghost: hmm, he's there and he doesn't scare you...That's great

And watch the language... Just because you know the words doesn't mean you should use them... Such language from a child!

redbird: 😆No, I don't profess to know everything... Double posting has happened in the past, and those authors have handled the inquiries much more gracefully... Let me just say, there are ways to tell when the "publish" button has been hit by mistake, and when a story's been submitted on two different occasions...You've admitted to making a mistake, it's the manner of the mistake you admit to that I have a problem with...

If you had been forthright and truthful to begin with, I wouldn't have questioned you at all about it...Hey, mistakes happen...I'm not condemning you for being human... All you had to do is 'fess up that you submitted your post on two different occasions...Simple...But since your attitude has become hostile I won't press you for the truth... Our posters can read between the lines...

And thank you, I will have a nice day 😊

Hi Redbird You may be right about this man lifting the blind. I think he did it to get attention. Try talking to him. It can't do any harm and you said he felt friendly. He is probably extremely frustrated that he can't contact you.

Theredbirdofmysoul~ hey pipe down with the anger there would you? You sound like some little teenage punk that's been scolded for something JEEZ!

Granny made a valid statement, you submitted TWO stories that are the SAME STORY, and you CLAIM you just clicked the button twice however BOTH submissions are DIFFERENT as in one has been edited AND they were both submitted on DIFFERENT DAYS, so what she is saying is completely correct, the least you can do is take it with some style and class and suck it up a little.

Meanwhile... Have you ever tried just talking normally to whoever is around your place? He probably would enjoy being acknowledged and knowing you know he won't hurt you, just a thought...

redbird: Well, since I'm one of the mods who edits and publishes stories, I "kinda" know what I'm talking about, so my previous statement was that of fact, not opinion... No bubble of mine was burst...

well uh ok then... But I acually did hit the button twice... And it takes "several days" for a story to be screened and posted, so I'm sorry to burst your bubble but I am telling the truth, thanks for your lovley opinion, have a good day 😉

Redbird: umm, I don't want to be a party pooper, but this is an "edited" version of your previously posted story... They were submitted on two separate days: this one on 7/6, the other on 7/4...Obviously, they were screened by two different editors, so your statement that you hit the button twice, sorry to say, isn't the truth... A large percentage of members here have submitted stories, and we know the screen that pops up afterward, so it's hard to make that mistake anyway...

Now, I don't want to make the assumption that everything you say or write is an untruth, but it's really hard not to...

have you checked the history of your house? Something might have happened to the former owner.

Um, this is the same as your other story, just a different title. Why submit the same story twice under two different titles?
