We all have our share of ghostly experiences, I'm sure none of these experiences are forgettable due to their supernatural nature but nothing in my opinion would beat the first encounter.
Mine happened 20 years ago when I was just 5 years old, in our old house. It started as an ordinary busy weekday morning for my family, all of my siblings were busy preparing for work and school while my mom was also preparing me for school. My mom and I are usually the last ones at home as my siblings leaves before 7 am while my school service arrives around 8 or 9 am.
After preparing we were outside the house waiting for my school service to arrive when my mom asked me to get the powder case from the drawer near our kitchen's entrance, I ran back inside the house to get it and on my way I saw a figure moved in our kitchen along the entrance heading towards the back door, the image was very clear as I was only about two meters away from it plus the fact that it was bright inside our kitchen. As a clueless kid, I remember prioritizing on getting the powder case as I was not startled at all upon seeing the figure. I went back to my mom then casually told her about what I saw, I can still remember the look on her face after hearing my story and that was when I felt that something isn't right.
Later that day, my mom and siblings asked me to describe what I saw, the figure looked wooden like it was almost human in shape around 5 feet in height with brown bark like skin texture all over also it was accompanied by an ordinary single flying bird (we call it pipit here in the Philippines) and the figure was hovering approximately a feet or two above the ground. They were terrified so they explained to me what I saw, and so at a very young age I came to learn about the existence of supernatural beings.
Until this day I still have no idea what kind of being I saw as it was somewhat elemental in nature. I hope that my story gets published cause I really want to share this experience of mine.
