I live in a large fraternity house on our school's campus and next to it is this concrete walkway which connects the school's apartments and dorms and leads to all of the university buildings. This walkway is located about 75 yards up a hill from our house. It's heavily used, a lot of people walk on it, you know big deal, it's a concrete walkway. If you're walking perpendicular to the walkway, you can continue walking uphill for another 50 feet or so on a path that leads to a gas station.
During opening week of school this year I was walking up the hill to the gas station. As I reached the top, I noticed out of the corner of my eye three people walking on the sidewalk. They weren't there though. Imagine you're almost positive that you saw something but when you look directly at it, it isn't there.
Well here's where it gets weird... When I saw these people walking on the sidewalk, they appeared to me in flashes, like say if someone lit up a dark room with a strobe light only for a microsecond, and everything that it lit up was in black and white. There were three people and three 'flashes' and in each progressive flash the people moved about the walkway. Two of them were walking towards the tunnel that lead to the dorms to my right and the other one was walking towards campus to my left. They were wearing attire that looked to be from the forties and didn't seem to notice that I was there. The two that were walking to the right were a girl, which I didn't make out clearly and a guy wearing a letter jacket. They weren't holding hands, but had their arms locked the way that people did sometimes back then. The other girl was walking alone and had long curly/wavy hair that was flowing behind her, almost as though it was blowing in the wind.
In the first two 'flashes' they were walking in opposite directions yet in the third flash, the single girl had whipped around and was staring at the couple. The look on her face gave me the sense that the guy had broken up with her and was now walking around arms locked with some other girl.
Now I said this is where it gets weird earlier, but this is where it really gets weird. My buddy Alex Hopkins claims to have seen the exact same thing. It's weird because we were standing in different places and it was at different times, yet the people were in the same place in the same spot. Alex was standing a little bit further down the sidewalk and viewed the same thing.
When I told him what I saw, he was like "I wish you didn't say that, because I saw the exact same thing..." It's funny because we had both completely disregarded it. He went into detail about what he had seen versus what I had seen. Some of the minor details didn't match up. We couldn't agree on which direction the couple was walking... To or from the tunnel and I distinctly recalled the single girl's hair being blonde even though Alex told me what he saw was in black and white.
I think its more worthwhile to call into point the things we did agree on, like where we saw them walking, what they looked like, how many 'flashes' there were, their attire, and the look on the single girl's face. It's funny sometimes, the things we think we might have seen but aren't exactly sure of. I generally don't like to speak of some of the weird things I see sometimes, but I think I can feel a lot more at ease when someone else tells me the exact same story.
