I'm going to get straight to the story. My partner and I have been living in a unit located in the hunter region in NSW Australia. We met on a dating website and have been living happily together for over four months. I have only been in this country for 1 year and reside in the same unit for this duration. My partner is from New Zealand and I also.
She has informed me that she can see black silhouettes of people and has done so for most of her life. It doesn't bother me because I have had similar experiences.
Since moving into this unit with myself, she had told me that there is someone or something in the house. She has seen a male shadow about 3 months ago and says it lounges around the house. It doesn't really bother me until she said it (or he) only makes himself known when I'm out or at work during the day. She thinks he is shy and thinks it is a male because of his stature.
Up until about 1 month ago it was just a dark shadow. At about 10:30 in the evening we were going to sleep when my partner sat straight up in bed crying and sobbing. I was a bit frightened at first but due to my spiritual culture did not feel threatened. After about 2 minutes I calmed her down and ask what was wrong and she said she saw the face of the shadow and said it was and old man late 40's/early 50's and said he was wearing work clothes and a old train man's hat.
I tried to investigate about the history of the area and found no indications as to who he is. My partner can regularly see him standing outside our bedroom window and sitting in our lounge room and has given home the name Harry because "he looks like a Harry" she said.
I've seen a few things that I can't explain during this time but the most significant was last Sunday when I heard someone pacing around my house early hours of the morning and it was only my partner and I at home.
If anyone has some suggestions or insight to this sort of behaviour, feel free to comment.
