Moundsville WV, back in the first week of December 2021, I stopped at my ex-wife, Lefty's house before heading home to Pennsylvania. She answered the door then turned and went 3 or 4 steps up and sat down on the stairs leading upstairs.
Entering the house, stairs on right, a little dining like room to the immediate left with a small kind of hallway leading to the kitchen in the back with a tv room in between. In the tv room in said hallway is a door that leads to the basement, this hall way runs through the middle of the house. My back was to the front door talking with her for roughly 5 minutes, when a shadow came from the tv/kitchen area swung a left and shot upstairs avoiding hitting her on the steps.
Now her and I have a 36 year friendship, we are divorced yes but have 2 daughters and 6 grandchildren together. We have had a handful of experiences in different homes we lived in, but this one was way different. I stepped back after the shadow darted upstairs and asked her, did you not just see that, she said what the shadow? I said yes the shadow. She then says good, I'm not losing my mind, someone else has seen it too.
As I'm asking her how long has this activity been going on, off to my left in the front room, in the corner diagonal from the front inside corner nearest me, a shadow has started to form in the corner. I step forward towards the kitchen in the hallway spin around with my back now towards the kitchen and the little room now on my right. Using the front window reflection I tried to see this mass that was growing in the corner. Not realizing at the time the reason I couldn't see anything was that the thing in the corner was taking the light out of the room. I leaned forward looking to the right and could not see the white walls in the corner behind this mass, it was extremely dark and made me very uncomfortable.
Not many a thing scares, intimidates or makes me uncomfortable in this life, this thing did all 3 fast. I asked her does she feel the cold coming from that room she just kind of said yeah it's always cold and walks upstairs for a minute leaving me in the foyer. I step forward towards the front door turn and put my back against the door looking into the room. Still dark but getting lighter by the second.
I asked the wtf are you and why are you here into the room and got a bone chilling cold draft hit me in the face then listened to the stairs as if something was walking up them. She comes down a minute or two later and heads into the kitchen,. We are having some coffee and you can hear something moving upstairs. I asked again how long has this been going on at this level, this is intense. She says a couple years now.
I have been gone working in Arizona, Florida, Louisiana, east Texas and now I'm back up around our daughters, they being WV me in Pennsylvania. I was shocked, I said a couple of years, she said yeah but it has picked up over the last 6 or so months.
I have been back to that house probably 15 times since then and have not felt anything like that day,. Side note, she is getting divorced and has been moving back into her house in Glendale, a little town next to Moundsville.
Whatever that thing was or is has attached itself or part of itself to me, or at least that's what I think has happened, abnormal things have been going on with me and around me. Coworkers watch and can't explain what's going on. They watch me struggle with something and not understand why it gave me such a fight, things moved right after I set it down, been different for sure. So um yeah that's one of my more recent encounters.
At least with a solid black mass, it was kind of creepy how easy going my ex was about it, glad someone else had seen it but not really interested as to why it was happening. Ok if you got this far I thank you very much and have great week. I'll share more stories, they are older but good too with multiple witnesses in the house with us.
