My sister and I were staying the evening with my mom. She lived in one of those creepy old farm houses in the country. We had been there on several occasions and never had anything out of the ordinary happen.
I am a smoker and one night it was really cold and I didn't want to stand outside. We decided to go down into the basement and sit by the wood burner to keep warm. Next to the room where we were sitting was a closet size room that was once used as a fruit cellar. It had long and tall shelves with canning jars still sitting there.
We were talking and then we heard a very odd commotion in the cellar. We stopped to listen assuming it was a mouse. We could hear the jars moving slightly. We found this a bit odd that a mouse could move a jar. We went into the room to investigate- what we saw truly terrified us.
There was a cloudy black figure in the upper left hand corner of the room. It seemed to just be suspended there. We tried to flee the room. However, we were unable to move. It was like being frozen in fright. The figure seemed to be looking at the jars. It never moved. It didn't have the form of a body almost like a blob of blackness-very thick blackness.
We finally turned and ran from the basement and to this day will not go back to her home. I found this very scary, something I never believed in. Now I have to.
