I grew up with my Grandmother and Mother in a little blue house right near the ocean. While I was growing up we had a neighbor named Ray. Ray was a really nice and generous guy who helped us in many ways, like caring for a baby kitten we had taken in and could not care for because of my Grandmother's allergies.
Ray passed away leaving his house to his sister, who then sold it to my Mother and I. The first night I slept in the house I got a feeling that someone was there watching me. About two months after me and my Mother moved in the feelings of someone there faded away like everything that bothered me usually did.
One night I was getting ready for bed, I had just turned the light off and closed my eyes when I got a feeling of urgency, like someone or something wanted to get my attention. I opened my eyes and across from my desk in the corner was a hooded figure, a shadow more or less. The figure scared me pretty well I closed my eyes and when I opened them the figure was gone. I slept on the couch that night. The figure showed up about three more times after that night in the same spot and just as fast as it came it was gone.
It's been about two years since we moved in and I haven't seen the hooded figure anywhere. I talked to my Mom about it and she blew it off said it was just a coat like every mother says to make her child feel safe in the night, but I know it wasn't a coat. Someone or something was in that room with me. I believe that the spirit was my old neighbor Ray checking up on the house and what changes we've made to it, but I can't be sure. I'm hoping it is my old kind neighbor Ray and not an evil spirit, the spirit hasn't hurt me or my family in any way, but when it wants to it makes its presence known.
This is one of a few spirits that I have seen in my life and I got a feeling it's not the last I will see.
