Strange Creature Spotted


This is a real incident experienced by me and my younger sister.

We stay with our parents on the topmost floor of our building.

I and my sister were home and along with us, were her friends, on one evening.

It was raining heavily that time. When the clock struck 8.30 pm, the lights went off.

And as it was already late for her friends, they decided to go to their respective house.

As it was very dark outside, we switched on a torch.

I and my sister Sana were standing near the lift (towards the left side are stairs to reach down) and holding the torch in such a way that enough light was flashed for her friends to descend the stairs.

As soon as her friends descended one floor, I saw someone really fat ascending the stairs.

That someone was really weird.


1) it was very fat and was climbing the stairs fast

2) from the torch light I could make out that it appeared grey

3) it was in human form but was visible just up to the waist

4) its legs were plump and despite that it managed to almost run upstairs.

I was scared yet numb. I did not speak a word and before that 'thing' could reach us, I thought of taking her to our house and lock the door.

Before I could do this, my sister pulled me and we both ran in our flat and locked the door.

When I asked her the reason of her behavior, she narrated to me exactly the same description of that fat thing or fat figure (whatever it was) and the way it was speeding towards us.

Out of curiosity I asked Sana to dial her friends' numbers and inquire about whether they came across anyone on their way while descending downstairs. To our shock both answered 'no'.

[at] scarypizza thanks for your reply. I can understand how spooky the scene would be. An apparition with half must be looking very scary. The spirit must be the resident who lived before there or it came from elsewhere

[at] tigrisvpm Actually it wasn't a human. It was in human form. Moreover, its body was upto the waist only. It had abnormally huge legs and was speeding upstairs. For an ordinary human being as huge as it was, is impossible to run upstairs, that too in darkness. 😊

hi scary, thanks for sharing. The light from the torch gives a large image. So that apparition may be human.

[at] aisyah1987 yes, you are right it was really scary 😁
[at] veilofdarkness Initially that thing looked like a human because it had proper legs and were huge. Soon I realized it was not normal as it was speeding upstairs towards us. It did not seem like a shadow. 😊
[at] Bibliothecarius hello 😊 I and my sister had kept the torch light on and we held it in such a way, so that light was enough for her friends.
Sorry all for late reply.

Greetings, ScaryPizza, and welcome to YGS.

Your reaction, "I was scared yet numb," is a normal reaction for people in danger. It is called the "Fear Paralysis Reflex" and it is so fundamental to human responses to stimuli that it has been observed in babies BEFORE they are born.

I'm a little puzzled why you and your sister had not gone down the stairs with her friends, as the next five flights of stairs would have been in darkness, too. However, I think your sister's reaction pulled you out of your mental shock and saved you from an unpleasant encounter with whatever it may have been.

Thanks for sharing this interesting narrative.

Scary- I apologize if this seems dumb, but could it possibly have been just a shadow? Have you ruled this out?

[at] RANDYM the lights were off. Lift was off too 😁
Whatever was happening was on the staircase 😁
[at] Anno_Domini initially I thought of it as if it were a living person. So I was wondering as to how someone can almost run upstairs and that thing seemed really huge. I was so scared 😭

I have a question if the OP could clear up.

If the lights went out (I'm assuming they are on electric) then how did the lift manage to get your other friends downstairs?

Obesity seems to have gone from a global problem to an extra-dimensional problem now. Something needs to be done about it. 😜
