My name is Richard and around a year ago I was standing in the city centre waiting on a bus. I was looking uphill and out of the corner of my eye someone's stride caught my attention.
This 'person' stopped around 15 feet after walking past me and paused for a couple of seconds then turned around and looked straight at me. I held eye contact for around 5-10 seconds. I then looked away and thought to myself something isn't right! I looked back and she was still looking at me. I noticed that she was dressed as a nun; however, she was wearing a white and brown hat, a brown cloak (looked like leather), and had a large wooden cross hanging at stomach level. I then thought am I seeing a ghost? She's dressed as if she should be riding a horse. Or am I hallucinating, I've never had that. Or is this person's mind not well, why walk past then stop and turn and pick me out of a busy street?
She looked as if she was learning about me with the way her top eyelids were slightly moving, I could see that she was taking in information. That's when I started to feel a bit uncomfortable so I turned to look at the bus timetable for a few seconds then looked round again and she was gone. I looked around for her but I couldn't see her although there was a corner she could have went around.
A few months ago I was having a few beers with my dad and I told him about this and I was expecting him to say goodnight you've had enough, but he said wait a minute that's a bit strange. He said that my grandad saw something similar on a bus concerning a nun not from that time. I asked him what it was and he said that I would have to speak to his sister (my aunt) because my grandad told her about it and she is around 8 years older than my dad. My dad would have been too young to remember or not mature enough to have been told about it. I'm not close to my aunt and very rarely see her. I don't think I could phone and ask her about it. My dad has never said anything more about it and I've never brought it up again.
I thought that I should share this because I don't believe that I was hallucinating or that it was someone strange. I would like to hear if anyone has experienced or heard of anything similar.
