I joined last year to share my experiences from 10 years ago in regards to my encounter with an apparition I saw while out on my ATV one evening. A couple of the comments I got were that I should go back and see what I could find since it had been a long time since I had been near that place. This past summer I got the chance to head back to the cemetery where I first saw this apparition.
When I drove out there, it was middle of the day on a nice sunny July afternoon since I wasn't brave enough to go explore in the evening, let alone at night. I was in the area visiting family and since I had a bit of free time I decided to make my way over there. The cemetery itself isn't what I'd describe as large but it's in a wide open space surrounded by trees and tall grass. There's also an old small church that sits at the entrance gate that looked incredibly old.
As I made my way around, I noticed that there were quite a few family plots there, both with the recently deceased and those who've been dead. Among those who I saw was a husband and wife couple who had passed away some 30 years apart. As I saw this, I found myself starting to feel sad for some reason and was on the verge of breaking out in tears, even though I had no idea who these people were but I started feeling these emotions of being lonely and only could imagine what this person must've felt by being widowed at a relatively young age based on what the headstones said.
After I pulled myself together, I decided to make my way over to the area where I saw that legless man from 10 years before. As I approached, I started feeling a bit of hesitancy; not in the sense that I was scared but that feeling you get when you're unsure about what choice to make or giving an answer on a topic which you know nothing about. It's really hard to describe to say the least. After a couple moments of standing there, I went over to where I saw this man stand and faced the same direction he did the day I saw him.
Still having that feeling of uneasiness, I started to speak out loud as a way of talking with him which including introducing myself, asking him if he remembered me from that day and I ended up apologizing to him if I had interrupted him during that time. The more I talked, the less uneasy I felt and right around the time I apologized, I felt sense of comfort that I cannot explain.
After saying all this, I made my way back to the car and just as I went to unlock my door, I heard a whisper in my ear from a man that said to me, "No hard feelings." Startled, I turned around and saw no one there. I also wanted to add that it was not a windy day out so I will personally attest that it wasn't a gust of wind that did this. Oddly enough, I wasn't at all scared by this and as I started driving away, I replayed that moment in my head and started laughing, like I had just heard a joke.
I feel like going back there really helped bring closure to some unanswered questions that I had. Most importantly, I feel that the legless man I saw in the cemetery 10 years ago is no longer an embodiment of fear but rather someone who is just like myself.
