About five years ago I was at my parent's house waiting for my kids to come home from a birthday party. I was sitting in the dining room facing the window, reading from my Kindle, when I caught movement in front of me. I looked up and saw this guy in the yard jump up and climb a 15' (guessing on the height, could be higher) concrete wall that separates our yard from the neighbor's.
I ran out of the house thinking I had an intruder but the guy was nowhere to be seen. I ran out to my neighbor's house to see if I could catch the guy. I practically ran into the neighbor's yard uninvited and saw about 15 people having a cookout. I told them what had happened and they told me they didn't see or hear anyone. I kept insisting that I saw a guy with blue jeans and a white and blue striped t-shirt climb over the wall to their yard. They started searching, mainly just to humor me, but didn't find anyone.
The intruder would have had to cross the yard to get out or climb up to the roof of the house and walk across to the other side. Some of the ladies were inside the house preparing food and they said they didn't hear any footsteps on the roof. I went back to my parent's house feeling confused and embarrassed. When I told my family they all thought I imagined it, I'm 100% sure I did not.
Fast forward to a few weeks ago. Adrian (my roommate) was talking on the phone with a friend (Mario) that lives across from us, his house is the one next to the one that is directly across from mine. It was around midnight, Mario had just gotten back from a party and called Adrian when he saw his bedroom light was on. Mario's was standing on the balcony looking over the neighborhood, just chatting away. Anyway, they were in the middle of a conversation when Adrian hears Mario gasp. When asked what was wrong Mario said there was a black shadow in the shape of a man climbing up the wall in my yard. Adrian said he was going to check it out but Mario told him not to, he said it looked creepy because the shadow stopped and was just stuck to the wall like a spider, he said no human can do that.
Of course as soon as Adrian told me I thought about what I had seen before. Not sure if both sightings are related, my guy was solid and I remember the color clothing he wore, Mario's guy was more like a dark shadow or silhouette of a man. I saw my guy in plain day light, Mario saw his around midnight. Then again, how common is it to see "people" crawling up walls.
I also don't know if Mario's sighting has anything to do with the weird stuff going around in my house the last few weeks, I wasn't living in this house at the time I saw my guy so I'm not sure if my parents were experiencing anything at the time. I do know we've always heard and seen things off and on in that house, it goes away on its own and then it starts happening again, nothing too scary. Lately, it has gotten very active, all the cliché hauntings you've heard about, we have.
Thanks for reading.
