Last August, as some may remember, there was a total eclipse of the moon. I am not sure which parts of the world it happened in but I know that it was supposed to happen on the west coast at 3:00 in the morning. My boyfriend and two roommates had all been looking forward to it for a long time because there hadn't been a lunar eclipse in our town since I was in the third grade (I was 19 when this eclipse happened) so we decided to make a night of it and kind of make it a special occasion. We all had the next day off so we had dinner and a few drinks.
At about 1:00 in the morning we left to go for a walk and figure out where we were going to watch from. First we decided to try our roof but once we got up there, we noticed that you couldn't see the moon past the trees, so we all started to climb back down the ladder. Now I am terrified of heights. Once I get up on the roof I am like a caterpillar, I can't stand I just wiggle around. So my boyfriend decided to go down first so he could catch me if I started to panic and fell (which was highly likely). My roommate held the ladder from the top. While I was going down, I looked through the window into our living room (the ladder was in front of the window). On the other side of the room there is another window the same size so they face each other. The curtains on the opposite window were closed and the lights were off.
This is where it gets weird. I stopped because I saw a shadow on the curtains on the other window. At first I thought it was my own shadow but it was so big. So I started to wave one of my arms but the arm on the shadow didn't move! Then I realized that the lights were off so there really couldn't be a shadow from me anyways. I was just staring at it while everyone was trying to talk to me then all of a sudden the shadow raised one of its hands in a fist and then started to walk towards me. It looked like it was walking in slow motion but it was still moving across the room fast. I got so scared I let go of the ladder and fell. I was caught and not hurt but I was so shaken up I started to cry. I went towards the street and then once everyone got there and I said what happened, they said it might be a good idea just to go for a walk and stay out of the house for a while.
We walked to the park watched the eclipse then headed home. Once we got back we were sitting there watching The Colbert Report and all of a sudden one of my roommates turned to my boyfriend and said "When your uncle was alive did he used to agree with people a lot but then add something to what they said?" (Weirdest question to ask about the man I know - If anyone has an idea of what this might mean please please let me know). Well my boyfriend looked at her and was like "Well yeah I guess so. He used to kind of like go "Oh yeah your right but..." then add something". Well my roommate started crying and just got up and left the room.
The next morning her boyfriend (who also lives there) was sitting with us watching tv while she was still asleep. We asked him what her deal was and he told us that she saw a man sitting in the chair next to my boyfriend and he kept interrupting her thoughts. She would think something then she would hear him say "Oh yeah your right but..." Then add something. Apparently when she asked my boyfriend that question, the ghost did the same thing but then added something scary which is what made her cry. Apparently she wouldn't even tell her boyfriend what he said. All she would say was that he told her to ask that question and then got really mad when my boyfriend answered.
I still get scared when I think of that night.
