In The Shadows

A few weeks ago, I was hospitalized for a minor operation. While recovering, the bed they assigned me was way at the end of the ward, where it was quieter. I was supposed to stay there a few days. But, only a couple of nights after my operation, I saw something that made me never want to come back there again, let alone stay there!

You see, on the 2nd night, I couldn’t sleep for some reason, so I just lay on my bed, staring at the ceiling. Suddenly, from the corner of my eye, I saw one of the shadows on the wall move. I thought someone in the ward was another non-sleeper like me, so I turned to see who it was. I saw no one though, so I turned back to the wall, thinking had maybe made a mistake.

I made a mistake alright! It wasn’t anyone’s shadow that was moving. What I saw moving was what seemed to be a shadow person! Seriously! I saw the shadow move OUT of the wall, getting a more 3-dimensional shape.

It came towards me! I was so scared, I thought I would pee in my pants! I could see it reaching out towards me. It put its hands around my neck and proceeded to try and strangle me!

Well, I was thinking I wasn’t about to die without a fight. I put my hands on its arms, to try and push it off. At that moment, the person/shadow just disappeared. It didn’t fade away, or run away or anything. It just…disappeared. the moment I put my hands on it.

Let me tell you, I didn’t get much sleep that night!
