I experienced this when I was about 15 years old in 2014. It might seem a bit plain in comparison to other stories in here but it's what I experienced and I wanted to share it.
I used to live in a two-storey house in the outskirts of my city in India. A bit of geography before that-my house is in an area that was slightly remote at the time and hence, you'd find very few houses nearby. There's a road that passes by in front of my house and another road that intersects with it. In short, my house is located on one corner of a rectangular land. The other corners of land on the other sides of the intersection of roads were mostly empty but there was also a park opposite my house. Since there were very few houses in and around us, there were lesser street lights in comparison to other places.
Now, there was a street light at the intersection and the next street light was farther away, so it was actually dark along the road until you could find the next street light. And there was a huge tree along one of the intersecting roads, as tall as my house, which apparently was really old. My room was on the first floor in my house and the window from my room was directly in front of the street light, so one could see the intersection, the park opposite, the huge tree as well as further down the intersecting roads.
Coming back to the story, like I said, I was 15 years old at the time and I was up at night studying for my exams. My study table was in front of the window facing the view that I mentioned before. It was about 1:00 in the morning and I was looking out of the window while studying. Mind you, I wasn't sleepy one bit and I was slightly restless because of the exams. At some point, I could see what looked like a little girl walking towards the intersection of roads. She seemed to be wearing this light-colored attire but I couldn't say the exact color of it. And I couldn't see her face either since she was bending her head, so all I could say was that it was a girl because of the dress, a kid because she was short and looked like one. There was nothing outright scary exactly, but something about a kid walking alone slowly at 1 am in the morning with a bent head was creepy enough.
Now comes the creepier part, as she was approaching the crossing of the roads, she was naturally approaching the radius of the street light as well. But as she slowly made her way towards the light, she gradually disappeared as the light got stronger.
I was flabbergasted and terrified at what I saw and instinctively just ran to my parents and slept for another week along with them.
I told my parents about it and they dismissed it at first. But they're believers in such things as well. So the next day, we talked to some old local villagers who had lived there for a while. According to one man, there was a house in the patch of land next to the huge tree at one point and a family and a little girl used to live there. Nobody knew what really happened but one day all the family members including the little girl were found dead in their house. The place was demolished after that and nobody who knew the story, dared to purchase that piece of land. I have no idea if it was a rumor but I can definitely tell for sure that my mind wasn't playing tricks on me. Hope you all enjoyed my story. Thanks for reading!
