This is a story relating to my childhood around the year 1994. I used to live in a government colony because at that time we never had a house of our own, we used to live on rental bases.
Now we shifted to this new flat. It was a three floor building and we shifted to the third floor. As soon as we shifted there I had an erring feeling about this house... Something didn't seem right about this house though nothing was out of place but still the house was not much for my liking.
With us the landlord was staying with his family. He had 2 children, a boy of 3 and a girl of 8 months old. The house always had darkness to it although it was third floor and there was ample amount of sunlight.
On this particular night we all went to sleep when suddenly we woke up to some commotion. My parents and I got up to see a strange incident. The 8 month old girl was held by the mother in the bathroom and the boy from next door was standing and urinating on the babies head... This shocked my parents and they asked the mother what she was doing... She snuggled it off saying it was part of their ritual and it was nothing serious. We never gave it a thought and slowly we forgot about the incident.
After a few days I felt like someone was always there around me, now parents were working people and I would be always alone in my room but I always felt a thing kind of a dark shadow was watching me. Then strange things began to happen. We used to always lock our room and even the landlord didn't have an access to our room, but whenever I used to come back from school things would not be in the same place where it was in the morning. The Pepsi bottle would be empty when I returned home though I would be full in the morning.
One day I went to the toilet for a quick pee, as I was peeing suddenly I saw the shadow with a black robe standing right in front of me. I got so scared that I screamed and ran out; my parents asked me what was wrong... I told them that I saw a black shadow and started crying hysterically, the night time I had high fever of 103 degree and I fell terribly ill. It took me a month to recover from it.
It was during my fever when I was half asleep I overheard my mother telling my father that the house was kind of weird because everyday for the past one month whenever she used to clean the house she used to always find a drop of blood under our chair and everyday at the same spot in the morning she used to find it... She even showed it to my father the next day and they somehow related the blood incident with my sudden fever because she started seeing the blood the same day I saw the shadow in my toilet.
No wonder as soon as I got well we immediately shifted from there to a new place. It's been 16 years after the incident but still I break into a cold sweat whenever I think about the "Black Shadow".
If any on you have any idea about this shadow please let me know
