My multiple experiences... Part 1
Hello everyone. I will start by letting you know that I am a big fan of the paranormal. I often go to reputed haunted places to see if I can find anything for myself. I have several stories to share, and I am happy that I have found this website to share it on.
So I will begin with one particular experience that took place in a trailer I was renting in St. Mary's County, MD, off of route 236 (Amish country).
I have always known that the woods in Mechanicsville have been haunted, either by feeling or seeing strange things or hearing the stories from my mother's friends. The trailer I was renting was backed up against a very large wooded area, neighboring several Amish farms. On one particular night, I awoke at exactly 2:33 am with a strange feeling that I was being watched. I noticed what appeared to be a shadow in my window, so thinking that maybe a friend of mine was outside of my window trying to wake me, I looked out of my window. No one was there, or so I thought. As I peered into the darkness, I saw a pair of red eyes staring in my direction from the wood line, pacing back and forth as if it would not leave the woods. I rubbed my eyes to make sure I wasn't seeing things, and sure enough, it was still there. I got up and grabbed a flashlight to check what was out there, against my better judgement.
Before I made it to my front door, there was a loud banging all the way down the side of my trailer, as if someone were running down the side of my trailer banging on it with their hands. I chose not to go outside after this took place, as fear gripped me.
These events happened every single night, and no one believed me. I had a female friend that stated she wouldn't believe it until she has seen it for herself, so I invited her over to see what happens. I warned her ahead of time that at exactly 2:33am, the events would unfold.
We stayed up talking about my other experiences, and as we did I looked at the clock several times waiting for the time. At the proper time, I told her to look out my window and see if she could see it. Sure enough, she immediately gasped as she saw the red eyes pacing back and forth as I had stated.
About 10 minutes later, after she decided it was time to leave (she was terribly frightened), the banging happened. She decided to stay until it was morning, for fear of what might be out there. I have not heard from her since, she would not return my phone calls and refused to come over to my place even when I had some of our mutual friends coming over.
I continued to see these eyes for months, and eventually got used to the noise so much that I could sleep through it. This only angered whatever that being was, as the being became more annoying. It started to bang on my doors, walls and windows, at times all at the same time. I became so frustrated that I confronted the eyes in the woods; however, while doing so a voice in my head told me to run inside repeatedly. I did as the voice said, and no sooner had I closed the door and locked it, it started to violently shake and the doorknob was being twisted.
A friend of mine, his mom was into dark arts (Wicca, witchcraft, etc), she said she would summon a guardian spirit for me to protect from the being in the woods. I didn't really believe it, but she told me that the guardian would make itself known by knocking gently on my window and that I would see his shadow outside my window.
As I said, I didn't believe her, until it actually happened. As was said, it happened 2 nights after she told me that, a light knocking on my window followed by a very large shadow that nearly blocked out the moonlight. The eyes remained, but further back in the woods, and the knocking stopped on the trailer.
I have since learned that the guardian is a bit of a trickster, he likes to play jokes on me! Turning on my TV, moving things around and whispering things I can't make out to rouse me from my sleep. I do not feel threatened at all by this guardian, and have since named him Kinto. He is still with me to this day, and whenever I go anywhere at night, my shadow is bigger than it should be and does not follow the light. In fact, I have 2 shadows. I love to freak out my friends when they see the two shadows!
Sorry this is so long, but I think this is a good story to share. I will post other experiences soon.
