A few nights ago, I had a scared feeling in my bedroom that made me feel like I needed to immediately turn on the bedside light. I frantically reached over and touched the lamp (touch light) and when the light came on, I saw a shadow figure streak across the bedroom from the bed, towards the treadmill, and disappear. The black streak looked almost comical - like one of those streaming figures, but all black.
When I saw it, I was happy that I'd scared it away. So I shut off the light, thinking smugly that I'd thwarted it's plans. However, almost immediately, I realized that he went 'into' the treadmill. I think I've commented on this before within the comment sections of my stories, but I have heard strange sounds coming out of the treadmill on occasion. The treadmill is unplugged, away from any heating/cooling vents, and nothing is stacked on it. However, I haven't heard anything from it in at least a couple of months. For some reason I suddenly made a connection between this shadow figure and the treadmill noise. So I said to myself that if I heard the treadmill make any noise I would know it was the shadow person doing it since it just went over to it. Within 3-5 seconds of thinking that, the treadmill made the noises, then stopped and has made no more noise since then. Coincidence? I don't believe so. It kind of irritated me, so I scolded the shadow person. However, as the realization hit me that he might just be over by the treadmill now, I was a bit scared and I ended up turning on the light to sleep by.
The treadmill is a space saver type so that it is tall vertically when in the storage position, which it has been for a while (yep - good intentions...). I realized that it is tall enough that a black figure could hide behind it. So the next morning I looked it over really well. Behind it, on all sides. Played with the power cord. I jiggled it. I could make it slightly make the noise that it had made the night before by jiggling it really hard by pushing and pulling on it. I couldn't make it make any creaking sounds without a significant effort.
The day after my shadow man sighting, my husband seemed like something was really wrong. He was quiet, and his facial expressions were very sad. I asked him what was wrong and he said he was just having a bad day and would prefer to be left alone. This was completely out of the blue - he'd been in a great mood for quite some time. This solidifies my feelings that the shadow folk are associated with negativity. Keep in mind, it's not just this one isolated incident, but the combined set of experiences with shadow people that seem to be associated with negativity. In any case, my husband was back to his normal self the next day.
I'm curious if anyone else has seen the shadow figure running away, and looking like a streak of black?
Also, has anyone else heard the shadow figure interact with solid objects?
