I have complained for years on this site about nothing happening in my life that could be deemed ghostly.
Now, I am not sure if I actually experienced something or if my mind and I are just not getting along.
This was about a week ago (and brought me back to this site after a few months' absence). I was laying in bed with all three of my cats and my fiance, watching TV. My fiance was already asleep, since it was a bit after midnight. I was watching one of my favorite shows and cuddling with our eldest cat while the two youngest slept. I hear a small popping sound from the hallway- sort of like dropping a bead on tile or stepping on a pistachio shell. Just a small sound, nothing that strange. Houses make odd noises all the time. My cat heard it as well and lazily looked in the direction of the hallway, obviously not very concerned.
I ignore it and continue watching my show. Between the main hallway and my bedroom is the master bath. Since I am afraid of the dark, I keep the bathroom light on. I cannot see the hallway from our bed, so I like having the security of the light. Out of the corner of my eye, I notice a small shadow, about five feet up, as if something is peeking around the corner. I look over and nothing is there. Thinking it's just the TV messing with my eyes in the dark, I resume watching my show.
About a minute, maybe two, later, I notice it again out of the corner of my eye. This time, it looks like a head and shoulder peeking around the corner, about five feet up. All I can tell is that it's a black shadow- I saw no definition, color or even features that I can think of. I turn my head towards it and it's gone. My cat, who before seemed like she could care less, has sat up and is staring in that direction with giant eyes- like she is also not entirely sure what just happened. She stayed that way for about five minutes before going back to normal.
Really, it was only a few seconds of something strange and I am not even sure what I saw. Nothing happened before and nothing has happened since.
