This story takes place a few years ago in my suburban home. This house probably hasn't been around more than 20 years, and nothing sinister that I know of has taken place here before us moving in.
As a young boy, I was very much interested in the supernatural, and I played with Ouija boards and the like. We even pretended we saw demons all the time. This became reality soon enough.
One of my cousins, about 15 at the time, was babysitting me and my little brother in the house alone, near 10:00 at night while my parents left to shop. We heard noises nearby, but thought nothing of them. I got up to get a drink of water, when I glanced into the hallway, and saw a dark figure, draped in a black robe with a hood. He drifted from my little brother's room to my parents' room. He didn't walk. He just floated.
We were quick to grab a knife from the kitchen, and hide behind the couch. I eventually mustered up enough confidence to look into my room, and when I did, the figure was gone. I haven't seen it again since then. However, I do always have this feeling that something is around, watching, waiting. It won't show itself, but I know it's there.
I am a rather empathetic (my sixth-sense is very strong) person, and I can feel its presence throughout the house when I am alone. I'll be in the living room watching TV, and I will have the feeling that something is in the hallway, and when I turn to look, nothing is there. I've tried talking to it, and tried getting it to send me energy signals, but nothing has worked.
I have a feeling that it is something to do with the Ouija board. I saw the ghost of a great-aunt of mine about 2 years before that. She was floating at the edge of my bed.
I doubt that she is the sinister figure I saw.
I've also felt like something went through me and chills go throughout my body.
