I have no way to explain my experience other than supernatural.
I was small I can't remember my age but I can remember the shadows. I will never forget the shadows for as long as I live; whether I want to or not. It was summer and I had to go to my grandparents' house to visit. I used to love going to my grandparents' house, before it happened.
It started out as an ordinary night only I was sleeping in the living room that night. I fell asleep for a couple hours then I woke up around 3:00am. I looked over to the boot room and I saw shadows; about three or four of them. Intently I was frightened by them; I have never been more scared in my life and I doubt I will again. I didn't scream because I had a feeling that wouldn't help. I just sat there and looked and them trying to get closer. I wondered why they couldn't get me. I looked around and saw a cross above the boot room and wondered if that had anything to do with it. After staring at the shadows I finally cowered under my blanket and went to sleep.
I spent a week waking up around 3:00am and looking at the shadows. A week and I didn't get used to it; In fact I got more scared every night because they wouldn't go away. I tried telling my grandma about the shadows but she laughed and told me to stop making things up. After that I don't think I ever told anyone else.
A while after seeing the shadows my grandma was diagnosed with cancer and died of it. When I think back to that time I can't help but wonder if the shadows had anything to do with it. My grandpa was also diagnosed with cancer and died. I don't know if the shadows were there or not because I was too scared to stick around at night.
The shadows are my biggest fear; nothing comes close to scaring me as much as the shadows did. Every time I think of them I'm scared I end up losing sleep at night and I have a fear of the because of the memories.
I have a few questions I would like to ask and I'm hoping for some answers.
1. What are the shadows?
2. Could there be any connection with illnesses and the shadows?
3. Why weren't the shadows able to leave the boot room?
Thanks for reading and please if you can try to answer my questions.
