The Ghostly Shadow


It was about 1 in the morning in the summer time. My two cousins, Tyanna and Asia, and I were coming home from a party, only a couple blocks away from my apartment.

We all three were sweating, stinking, and sticky because of the hot summer weather. I decided that I wouldn't go to bed like that so as soon as my cousins and I got settled inside my apartment I got right in the shower.

My bathroom is connected to my bedroom and there's a small window near my shower. I opened the window just before I got in the shower, because it would get very humid in the bathroom. About a half of an hour later I got out the shower and as I was drying myself off something black floated by my window and floated right down to the parking lot.

Now the parking lot was about 5 feet from my bathroom window and the black shadow continued to just float in the parking lot. A couple of days later my mother and I watched a ghostly show called Ghostly Encounters and a young lady on there explained what I had saw out my bathroom window.

She said the black shadow was in her home though. The story sent shivers down my spine and I told my mother what I had saw the night I had taken the shower, the day of the party. That's my ghostly story.

There isn't just one ghostly shadow in the world; there are many. A shadow person, I believe, is an entity that can not fully manifest itself into a physical being. Congrats, you did see a ghost, in it's most basic, least energy-consuming form.

You shouldn't be afraid of it. How you thought that there was only one ghost on the planet that could appear as a shadow, though, I will never know. Same with the people that see a ghost with a hat on, and everyone goes, "Oh hey! I've seen your ghost!" No, it's not the same ghost. Many appear with hats on.

Deep breaths, take it slow. Have you seen the shadow since?
