Now, I know I told you all that I would write about my demon stories but I have decided to start with something small. Something I remembered recently again-something that happened to me as a young child. I was about 3 or 4 years old when this happened.
One night while lying in my bed, I couldn't sleep. Our neighbours' back door light was on and used to shine into my room, making me sleep easier as it acted like a night light. Now I was busy looking at the curtains when suddenly I saw someone walk past-a shadow in the light. It didn't alarm me at first because it looked like my neighbour. Big eighties hair!
The next day however, I wanted to go play with the neighbours' little girl. So my brother (who was 13 or 14 at the time) had to help me onto the wall and my neighbour had to stand on something to get me down! She had to stand on something! Even in my little mind I realised that it couldn't have been her because you can't see her head over the wall unless she suddenly grew longer legs or was walking on a high plank or something! That creeped me out! So I asked her! And she told me that they were all inside last night and not one of them went outside.
Now this shadow was only a head as it was pure darkness because of the wall. It looked as though it was coming from my neighbours' yard, and the only person in my family tall enough to maybe peep over the wall on tip toes was my dad and he definitely didn't have big eighties hair unless he decided to wear a wig! And even if he did he would also have to grow longer legs or walk on a plank or something.
The other thing was I heard no sound coming from outside my window so I immediately thought it to be from my neighbours' yard as they had bricks while next to my room was grass and normally I would hear someone. So you can bet I spent the next night with my parents and when they kicked me out, with my siblings! It was then that I developed the unhealthy love for falling asleep in front of the TV and allowing my parents to carry me to bed.
I eventually forgot about it but from time to time especially when we were talking about ghost stories I would remember it. So that is why I decided to start with this one instead of the more recent demon stories as it is a lot safer! What do you all think? Was it something or was it just my mind playing tricks on me?
