A while ago I had a mischievous spirit. Maybe it could be considered a poltergeist. That situation has long since been dealt with, but now I have a new one. There is a shadow man who resides in the corners of my family's house.
I've never seen him full on, I've only ever seen him in the corner of my eye. Most times when I do catch him, he runs. He usually comes back though.
I first started noticing this about two weeks ago. At first I assumed I was just tired and seeing things (I do have finals coming up soon). But then I started noticing it more often, and so had my mum. Actually, she was the one who confirmed it for me when she asked if I had been noticing the same thing. That was a bit of a relief, at least now I knew I wasn't losing it!
I'm not really sure what to make of this situation. He hasn't done anything bad, if anything it just seems that he's curious, perhaps a bit lonely. I can't say for certain, he's only talked one time and that was after I took a tumble down a set of stairs in my house, and it was only a few seconds after I had landed. All I heard was, "are you okay?" Not sure how to describe his voice. It was kind of like a passing breeze. Very soft, and very faint.
Aside from that, he doesn't do much. Occasionally opens and closes a door, and just stands in the corner of rooms. He likes the downstairs laundry room, as that's where I've seen him the most. Actually, as I write this now I can tell he's in the corner of the living room.
One small note, my cat doesn't seem to bothered by him. The last spirit in my house went after my cat, and she was always on guard at that time. This time she doesn't seem to care. She'll stare at the corner for a little while, then go back to doing whatever she was previously doing. So, I guess that's a good thing.
