I'd like to hear your guys thoughts on this one because I'm clueless and no one I have told about this seems to have an idea on who or what this could be.
2012 my ex and I were visiting my sister and her fiancé who stayed in Fourways Johannesburg. It was probably around 5am because the sun hadn't fully come out yet although the sky was blue, let me just say twilight. I was lying in bed in the guest room with my eyes closed just listening to my then boyfriend's breathing when I heard someone walk right outside our window. He was wearing heavy worker boots and first walked passed the window towards the kitchen door. Stopped, walked back, stood right outside our window for a couple of seconds and seemed to shift his weight from one foot to the other before walking back towards the kitchen and then the footsteps stopped abruptly, not faded, just stopped. At first I thought nothing of it because my sister's unit was by the main entrance and we often heard securities on their walky-talkies, but then when he came back again and stood outside our window for a couple of seconds I decided to take a look because although the securities often made their rounds, they walked on the pathway and not right outside the units.
When I looked I could hear this man shift his weight from one foot to the other but what freaked me out is there was no shadow/silhouette. He was standing so close there should've been an outline but there was nothing. I nudged my boyfriend who mumbled in his sleep and when he did the footsteps moved away from the room. They were odd footsteps too, very loud and heavy like the owner was a giant. As they were walking away I peaked out the window and there was no one. They just seemed to stop. I looked around and saw two security guards so I got up, put on shoes and went outside. I asked them if either one of them or anyone had just walked past our unit and they said no and that they had been sitting there for a while now.
I let it go cause nothing had really happened, until nearly a year later. Again I was visiting my sister but a different complex now, still in Fourways. This time I was alone in the room and again I head the up and down heavy pacing of the booted man. This time the car was parked outside my window but on he marched. Again no silhouette of the man but I could make out the car. This time I made it a point to act faster and look out the window- nothing. It was around the same time, 5am.
Fast forward to 2014. I am now living in Westdene. I hear the heavy footsteps again but this time it's around midnight and I know it wasn't the old man living in the cottage with me. Unlike the first two times I was too scared to look out the window, it being nighttime and all so I just grabbed my Bible, opened Psalm 23 and placed it under my pillow. Again when I asked the tenants from the main house (two guys) if they had any visitors over last night or if they'd been anywhere near the back they said they had gone out and come back much later.
One thing I should mention is on the last encounter it felt like this man or whatever it is was facing outside my window when he stopped and shifted his feet and wasn't looking in. That's when I realized that the other two times had been the same, identical to the T. He walks passed, comes back. Stands for a couple of seconds then walks off before the footsteps disappear completely.
Has anyone ever experiences or heard of this? People say it could be a guardian angel but honestly I don't know how I feel about angels. I don't think it's out to hurt me, I just want to know what it is. There could be a logical explanation but the fact that such a tall, heavy set man could walk around so loudly and yet remain unseen makes me believe otherwise.
