It was a hot, ninety-four degree day and I had to water the plants in the backyard. I dragged the hose over to the patch next to our neighbors' fence, and started spraying the plants. I adjusted the hose and accidentally, some water sprayed onto the fence. Just then, I saw a black figure move towards the left between the cracks of the fence. It looked like a dog, because the previous owners had one, so I knew what it looked like. The only problem was that the present owners didn't own one. I just ignored it because I guessed it was the grandpa living there.
Back inside, I took out a popsicle and started to just roam around in my own thoughts and rest for a bit. When I passed by the sliding door, I saw the black figure again on our neighbors' deck. I only saw this from the corner of my eye, and I knew it wasn't the grandpa I thought it was, because when I quickly looked back, it was gone. The figure was tall, and nothing over on their deck was even close to the figure's height. The figure showed that it wasn't a dog, it was a human figure, but I couldn't see anything else, except for its blackness.
A few years back, I remember reaching over for the soap in the bathroom at night. I woke up, with my hands feeling clammy. Just as I was reaching over to the other sink where the soap was, I looked at the mirror, and next to me, I saw a hooded figure, about a foot taller than I was. I couldn't see the face. It was just like an empty hole of blackness going forever. It didn't scare me too much, because I was younger and thought it was one of those "dementors" from the book series "Harry Potter", and I could use "magic" to ward it off. I'm wondering now, if it's the same figure that was in my neighbors' backyard.
Is this presense evil? (Although I don't get the evil feelings off of it.) Do you know if the presense is the same, and is it targeting me? (If it is, why?)
