This experience of mine happened when I was still living in a small town in Camarines Norte. At the time, I was seven turning eight and my mother was pregnant with my only brother. During this certain pregnancy, my mother had a weird habit of walking around at night. (It's a small town and pretty much most of the people know everyone, so I guess it was safe for her to do it.) She always dragged me along which is fine by me because I really liked the tapsilog and French fries that were available at the little restaurant we always went to when she took her walk.
On one particular occasion, the night was cool and the moon was shining bright. As we were a few stores from the restaurant where were suppose to eat, I noticed something at the tip of a tree which was located in the yard of the town's public clinic (the clinic is a few buildings to left across the restaurant). The clinic was surrounded by big trees, so the area around the clinic is dark. But since the moon was bright, there was enough light to illuminate the the space. And the tree where the creature was situated was tall to the point that the moon looked like a basketball beside the thing I saw.
What I saw was a man. Although looking back, I am not entirely sure if it was indeed a man. Even though the creature looked like a man, there was something odd about him. For one, he seemed to be naked and his skin was almost grey. Plus, he seemed to have a horn and a tail. Two things I am certain of: What I saw was not a man and that not only me saw it. People around my mother and I were saying "Ano Yun?" (Translation: What's that?)
I didn't tell anyone about this incident until I was fourteen. I don't particularly know why I kept my mouth shut about it, but I know part of it was fearing that no one would believe me and being scared of confirming what I saw. But now that I'm almost twenty, I am ready to get on and try to find out what the creature was.
The first person I told about what I witnessed was my mother. She didn't straight up tell me that she doesn't believe me nor did she offer any explanation on what I saw that night. So, would you guys be an awesome and considerate individuals to provide possible theory for my experience? Is it a demon? Can a demon manifest as almost solid? I always thought that they would be shadows lingering around.
Thank you for reading. I have a few more stories that I am planning to share in this website. Take care and God bless!
