I think this was one of my first encounters with the paranormal. It was way back when I was around 4th grade, when I started seeing things supposed to be unseen by the naked eye.
It was a very hot afternoon, as always. I was getting annoyed because I was sweating badly and I didn't really want to change. So, I decided to go outside and sit alone on the porch where our rocking chair was located. Just to explain briefly, whenever it would rock forward, I could see a small portion of our neighbor's front yard because there was a part of our wall that was broken and was only replaced with a metal mesh net. And whenever I'd rock backwards, my grandmother's plants would block the view completely.
I was rocking the chair and was looking forward, until I decided to look to my right where the broken wall was. At first it was fine, because I rocked backwards and only saw plants. But then, I rocked forward and saw it. A figure dressed in all white and long pitch black hair covering its face. It was behind the mesh wall, and in the neighbor's house, seemingly staring at me. I thought it was a trick of the light so I rocked backwards again. And again when it came rocking forward, it was still there. It was then I got major creeps and ran as fast as I could to the bedroom where everyone else was, and slept it off.
Till this day, I no longer face the rocking chair where I could see the mesh wall. Nor do I sit there alone anymore. I'm too nervous to find out what will happen if I ever attempt to do that again.
