I had just finished work, it was about 3 am by the time I got out of there. After saying my goodbyes I decided to start walking home.
Normally the walk would take about 60 minutes, but if I cut through the local graveyard it cuts around 20 minutes off the walk. Having done this numerous times during the day I had no real hesitation at first, but after about 5 minutes I had that feeling I was not welcome there so I started walking faster just trying to ignore the feeling.
What I heard and saw next I really cannot explain. At first I heard faint crying so I stopped and listened and I turned to the direction it was coming from. From what I could make out, as it was about 30 feet away, coming out of the darkness was a man holding out his hand towards me and crying.
I started to back up trying to keep my eye on the spirit, which I assume it was. Anyway, finally making it out, three words came into my head... "Don't come back."
If anyone has a idea what I could have experienced, let me know. I have had numerous things happen but I am still no expert. It would be nice if anyone could tell me what I encountered that night, and also if it's possible for spirits to follow you home and if I should be worried.
I have had activity in my house which started a few days after my encounter: doors closing and opening; I have heard my name being whispered in my ear at night and now my dog, which loved to live in the house, will not step foot in here anymore. I have had friends stay the night and leave early in the morning because they say someone is watching them sleep.
That's about all that has happened so far. Any advice or help will be much appreciated.
