This experience happened when I just turned 18 years old. It was really late at night and I was just walking back home from my friend who lives up the hill from me. Tell me what you think.
I was walking back home with my friend Tanya and her brother (names changed for privacy). It wasn't that far of a walk, we were neighbors so it would only take me about 2 minutes to get home. But they insisted to walk with me until I got into my house and out of the dark.
It was just about 1:00 in the morning when we started to walk back to my house. So knowing it wouldn't take long, we walked a little slower just talking and laughing. My aunt had probably forgot that I wasn't home yet so all the lights were turned off. I didn't think anything of it but the three of us all had this strange feeling like we were being watched. The closer we got to my house the stronger the feeling got.
I looked at my friends and could see the uncertainty in their eyes. They wanted to follow me all the way into the garage where my back door was located. I told them that it wasn't necessary and that I would be fine. They didn't argue but did follow me until I was right outside of the garage.
The moment we got there Tanya and I looked up in shock and I knew at that moment that she was seeing what I was seeing. A shadow or silhouette of a man about 5'11 just standing right where our outside table should be. I felt like he was looking right at me, so out of curiosity I tilted my head to the side and saw him follow the same motion. I don't think he noticed the two other people with me until my friend's brother asked what was wrong.
The second he heard his voice the man's head turned so fast to see him and Tanya on either side of me. The shadow man didn't hesitate, he seemed to be running toward us and Tanya and I saw that and heard him running toward us and hid behind her brother who also seemed to hear the running footsteps and had decided to jump back just as we hid behind him, putting a good distance between us and my house. Tanya and I looked at him and asked if he saw that, he told us no but said he heard it. Then asked Tanya and I, "What just happened?" but we never told him. I ran into my house and saw my friends run back up to theirs. They never came down to my house at night after that day.
