I was spending the night at my girlfriend's house. I woke up to get a snack around 3 AM. Her house is EXTREMELY dark at night, to where you can't see a thing. I'm always a little scared to be over there, because I have an intense fear of the paranormal, and she is connected to them.
When she was little she had an imaginary friend named "Pyrgus," and he turned out to be a ghost who still speaks to her. Her mother also had numerous brushes with ghosts.
Her bedroom is at the end of a hall which leads out to the kitchen, and I was already feeling paranoid as I walked down that hall, which is, again, incredibly dark. When I got to the kitchen I was reaching for a plate when I saw a shadow on the wall. I knew this was a shadow man because, well, it was a human shaped shadow about 6 feet tall wearing a fedora. I was so freaked out I returned to my girlfriend's bedroom and got into bed.
She has two beds, and we were sharing a bed. I happened to look over near her other bed, as my eyes always scan over a room to make sure nothing's watching me. She has a chair near the second bed, and on that chair sat a little girl, again made of shadows. Up until now I always thought that shadow people were restricted to the male gender, and that all the stories involving shadow females were false, but now I know it to be true. Both the man and the girl did nothing, simply watched me until I realized they were there.
I know a lot about shadow people, I spend a lot of time doing research on them, because they interest me a lot. I feel drawn to them and obsessed with them, yet they are my greatest fear. I Sleep with my lights on every night to where the electricity bill has gone up 50 dollars because I DO NOT want to see another one.
My girlfriend and I always have lengthy conversations about ghosts and why we see them. Although the shadow people were at her house, she does not believe in them. She claims that if she saw one she would not be scared, in fact, she would try to give it a hug. I, on the other hand, am terrified.
What I want to know is, am I seeing shadow people because I am so interested in them? Literally, I spend half my time on the computer on this website reading people's shadow experiences, looking for stories to freak me out, and trying to figure out just what they are.
