I'm from NYC (queens) and I'd say that I'm not very gullible and I don't scare very easily. But my recent ongoing experiences have made quite the believer out of me. I was about six to seven months pregnant and I was lying down on my air bed in the basement of my home. I was alone because my husband worked the graveyard shift. I just finished watching a particularly long Scooby-doo marathon and started to doze off, I couldn't have been asleep for more than 15 minutes when I had the feeling that someone was standing over me. I opened my eyes thinking one of my brothers would be there but I was very shocked and surprised to see this black figure standing over me with his or its arms stretched out to its sides.
Sure enough it scared the crap out of me; it scared me so much I thought I was going to go into labor. To make this part of my story short I sat up and yelled at this "thing" whatever it was disappeared as fast as it appeared and I spent the rest of the night with all the lights on until morning. The next couple of weeks I was in the basement (alone) about 9 in the morning and I was expecting my mother. I don't know what made me look over to the staircase but I saw this shadow as if someone was standing on the top of the staircase.
The way my house is built is the bathroom is right by the staircase so all the light from outside shines through that window, reflecting light onto the staircase wall so you can tell when there's someone standing on the steps. I thought it was my mom so I called out to her but the person didn't reply and I saw the shadow move from the staircase. I started hearing a female's voice humming in my living room.
It wasn't very loud and given the fact that this humming was accompanied by footsteps. I went upstairs and there was nobody there. To make a longer story shorter I gave birth to my son. A year later my son and I are playing in hallway and he suddenly stopped and stared at the ceiling. I tried to take him to my room and he just WOULDN'T budge, he started doing this when he was one. Until this day he'll be playing and chatting up a storm until he gets to the hallway. It's like he turns into a completely different child he's about 2 and a half now and I'm starting to think that there's something in that hallway.
I'm definitely convinced that there's something in my basement because my son used to love to play in the basement all the time, since the age of one he refuses to come down to the basement. He'll either stand at the top of the stairs crying hysterically until I come up or if I do get him to come down He won't stay for long. Recently he's been terrified to come out of my bedroom and into the hallway. I just don't know what to do. I've also seen this black shadow again last month I was getting ready for school and I was having a discussion with my husband, and he was facing me when I saw this black thing go zooming down the stairs right behind him.
I'm honestly at my wits end and I don't know what to do anymore. It really disturbs me that I'm seeing these black shadows all over the place...
