Grabbed by a Shadow Person

Dave B. wrote in to tell of his shadow man encounter:

“I thought I'd tell you about the house I grew up in. It was a two story house located in a small Kansas town. My whole childhood we would hear different creaks and sounds that my dad would always pass off as the settling of the house. Well, my dad is the type of guy who refuses to acknowledge anything that he can't physically see or feel. There was a few times he was even taken aback by things. Then there was this one night.

We were home and we were waiting on my older brother to come by so we could all go out to eat. We were all in the family room in the basement watching TV when we thought we heard my brother come in the backdoor upstairs, walk across the kitchen and then come downstairs. They were located around the corner and we were waiting for him to step around the stairwell into the room and when nobody appeared, we were dumbfounded. I ended up going and looking and the rest of the house was empty. My brother didn't show up for another half an hour. It was easy to hear people walking around upstairs and knew these sounds without a doubt. And then somebody came down those stairs. This is just one of many many things. Everything from knick-knacks falling off shelves for no reason to hearing people talking in different rooms that were not currently occupied. The only time I was truly scared was when I was in high-school.

I went through a time when I couldn't sleep for days at a time. There was one summer night that I lay in bed drifting in and out of sleep but was never able to actually fall into deep sleep when I suddenly started shivering because I was freezing. I felt like something was watching me. I opened my eyes and noticed there was totally no light in the room even though there was a street light a few houses away that usually shown through the window. As my eyes adjusted to the darkness, I saw a large dark figure at the foot of my bed. Totally unable to move, I was trying to debate if my mind was playing tricks on me when it reached down and started to grab my leg. Being totally overcome with fear, I bolted from my room and ran upstairs. I slept on the couch for almost a month but when I did get the nerve to sleep in my own room, I never saw it again.

Strangely enough my dad had built that house a year after I was born and we were the first family to live there so it has always puzzled me why there was any sort of activity and I never had anything happen since moving away in the late 90s.”
