It was minutes before midnight, I went to the kitchen to get my partner who's pregnant a glass of water. I walked out without turning any lights on, I've never been one to be afraid of the dark I always walk around in the dark. But when I got to the kitchen I turned one light on to see what I was doing.
As I was in the kitchen fetching my partner the glass of water, I turned around to put the ice away in the freezer and also switched the kitchen light off.
As I turned back to grab the glass of water off the bench I then went to walk off towards the hallway to the bedroom, I got a fright from a really dark shadow figure approaching me quickly. It appeared to be a girl approximately 5 foot tall, could make out hair down to the shoulders possibly further and arms, I could only see the top half of it with no details visible.
I thought it was my partner and I took a step back because I was frightened and said "babe" in a bold voice. The shadow figure kept walking towards me from the hallway about ten meters away and was about one meter away from me before I realized it wasn't my partner.
I then felt a cold, rushing sense of fear around me and then it seemed like the shadow crouched down and faded behind the kitchen bench. I stood still in the darkness holding the glass of water for about 30 seconds before slowly turning the light on and going back to our room to find my partner in bed.
The shadow was clear as day to me even though there wasn't a light on. I was so certain of what I saw and it's kept me up all night researching and worrying. My partner and I think it was a shadow entity or shadow person but would really like some insight or advice. Before this incident I wouldn't say I was a believer but now I'm a lot closer and I don't know whether to be frightened or not. Please help with advice.
Does anyone have any insight on this?
Can anyone shed some light?
Has anyone experienced this before?
