Hey all 👋🏾,
I am writing this story in regards to my little sister who shared something with me last night while we were out dinner.
A few months ago she casually mentioned how when she wakes up in the middle of the night, there's a black figure with a wide hat standing in her doorway. My nephew's room is right across the hallway, but they haven't mentioned anything happening or seeing any figures nor does my sister allow me to ask out of fear it will scare them which is understandable.
Back to my point about this figure she states its always usually in her doorway. Just standing there, and she goes back to sleep. What cause me to be alarmed is that last night she informed me that earlier this week, she has awoken to find the hat man standing directly next to her bed, and not in the doorway as usual. I asked her could she make out any features or anything distinctive but she says no.
I asked her if she felt scared or anything she said when it first started that she did, however I feel as though this fear has turned into "I'm used to it" but she said its not a feeling of fear or dread that she gets when she sees it but yesterday she described it as a calming feeling.
I just get concerned due to my young nephews and the stigma associated with shadow men. Anyone have any ideas as to what it can be? She feels like it may be her dad but I'm not too sure. And later I definitely don't want this affecting my nephews if this is something negative, and we do have sage at the ready!
