When I was 12 and my small cousin was 4, we lived in St. Francis, Arkansas. I'm now 20 and just got into this site so now I was starting to just wonder about my experience when I was 12.
We used to sleep in the living room where we used to live because our house was so crowded. One day really early in the morning my cousin woke me up saying there was a man in the corner, but by the time I was awake enough and looked he wasn't there. She said he had walked away. So the next day she told her dad, my uncle, that there was a man in the room. Of course my uncle being the over protective man that he is got really mad thinking there was someone in the house watching his only daughter and his niece.
So the next night came around and I just laid there never getting to sleep hoping that I would hear the guy come in and I could yell for my uncle. I ended up dozing off anyway and my cousin woke me up again about an hour later. So I looked up at the corner of the room that she had said the man was in the previous night. Low and behold there he was, honestly I couldn't tell if it was a man or a woman, there was just a human like figure standing there facing our general direction.
So immediately I kind of freaked out grabbed my cousin and ran to my uncle's room. Obviously he woke up with the commotion and ran to the living room. I was right behind him while I had left my cousin in his room. Just as we had gotten into the living room the man walked into the kitchen and disappeared.
I currently still have not seen the figure again, neither has anyone in my family. I'm just curious as to if anyone has had a similar experience. Or know what it could have been? It didn't seem evil or anything, it was just weird and odd to us because we had no idea what it could have been.
