My story begins in a small cabin outside Sperryville, Virginia, about 3 years ago. My girlfriend and I were attending a communal gathering at a friend's cabin for a weekend getaway.
While relaxing in the living room, a man in a black cloak and wide brimmed hat appeared in front of me. He didn't say anything, he just stood looking through me. Almost immediately, other men in the same clothing started appearing. They were completely black with no faces.
They dispersed around the room, watching everyone talking, and were somehow connected telepathically to the man standing in front of me.
There was no communication, but I felt that they were somehow connected to the man whose family owns the cabin. I only saw them this one time, during the weekend outing. I tried to get them to tell me who they are, but there was only silence. Eventually they disappeared and didn't come back.
About 2 1/2 years later, we were invited to another party; this time at the man's home in Falls Church, Virginia. Upon parking in front of the house, I felt a warning being sent telepathically to me, cautioning me not to enter the residence. I chose to ignore the message.
After spending a bit of time in the living room of this other home, I felt a presence watching me. I started scanning the room and noticed a shadow resembling the same man I saw at the cabin. He appeared to be waiting for something to happen. Again, other men entered the house and proceeded to stand in every room, staring at the people attending the party. Next, another shadow man came over to me and asked who I was, and what I was doing there. I told him I wasn't doing anything, and was invited to be there. He tried to scare me by changing his face to that of a skeleton with red eyes and smoke flowing out of his mouth. He said he could be anything he wanted to be.
I energetically raised a hand in front of him and commanded him to leave. Somehow I knew that this would make him back down. He said I was not welcome there and disappeared. I have not seen these shadowy people since then, but don't feel that they have good intent.
Since seeing these men, 3 people who are close to the man who had the parties have tried to commit suicide, and 1 person of the 3 was successful in ending their life.
I am still trying to figure out what their purpose is, and whether they are merely observers, messengers, or have an agenda to cause harm through negative influence.
