I was on vacation wit my family for my cousins sweet 15. One night there was a thunder and lighting storm and in the tropics lighting is very bright and can be seen every direction. So this one night I was getting ready to go to bed. I said good night to my sister and headed to the room. Once I got to the room, it seemed darker then usual because by that time my eyes would get used to the darkness. I started getting this uneasy feeling. My mothers bed was next to the two tall windows.
So I had this sudden urge to look around the room and when I finally did I saw the tall dark black shadow. It was about 7 to 8 feet tall. All I could make out of it was the shoulders, and head it looked like it was wearing a long black jacket. I knew I saw it because the lighting shined through one window and not the one that it was standing in front of. I didn't know what this meant but I was so scared that I made my mom hold my hand all night and didn't want to stay there any longer.
For the remainder of the time, I stayed at my aunt's house. I couldn't wait to leave. I just really want to know what this means. This wasn't the first time I had experienced something at my grandmother's house. I have experienced so much more but this was the first time I actually saw something so scary.
The next day I told my grandmother what had happened the night before and she had no explanation and neither did my mother. They both said that I shouldn't be scared and I had nothing to be afraid of because they where going to be there for me. Please help.
