I've always felt that there are a lot of paranormal occurrences happening in and around the property that my family and I live at. Even so, it terrifies me every time whenever something unusual happens.
Both my sister and I were chatting together in the kitchen one afternoon several days ago (New Year's Eve). I was washing up the dishes from lunch earlier, when she froze and pointed at the window saying: "Oh my god, what's that?"
I turned and saw a pale, yellowish hand with very long, almost alien-like fingers at the corner of the kitchen window. Its fingers were moving slowly and fluidly as if beckoning us to come outside. It was not attached to an arm. Both of us were terrified and I immediately went to the back door to check if someone was trying to play a trick on us. I didn't see anything, but one of my cats bolted inside, clearly frightened of something. I closed the back door firmly and went back into the kitchen. Not long afterwards, the back door opened on its own again with a creaky noise and my sister and I freaked out. I rushed to close it again. In hindsight, it was probably not a good idea to move to the back door straight away in case something dangerous did happen, but I wasn't really thinking at the time. Whatever WAS there, however, had found an escape route beyond my comprehension as it is impossible to move away to the left as there is a locked gate there. As for moving to the right, if somebody was playing tricks, we would have heard them run off along the concrete outside our back door, where they would have to have been standing in order to position the hand where it was seen.
I'm sorry if this is a bit confusing to follow, but cutting to the point, both of us had seen it so I know I wasn't hallucinating. It looked solid yet at the same time, otherworldly. I can't explain it any better than I can explain the mysterious shadow creature. When we both told mum about the hand later that night when she came home from work, she was surprised. She said she felt something watching her in the backyard the other night when she went looking for the cat. And the same night we had told her, she went to prepare rice cakes for New Year's a couple of hours before midnight and stopped all of a sudden. She told me that she felt like we were all being watched through the kitchen window from outside. Unfortunately, the light bulb outside doesn't work anymore so we can't see outside from indoors during the night from that window.
... I am wondering what it is trying to tell us. I know what I saw, and the fact my sister saw it too strengthens my belief that something is trying to grab our attention for sure.
