Tall, Guarding Phantom
BY HEATHER H.
Last night, on Tuesday, November 5th, 2008 at approximately 7:30 p.m., I was getting my three-year-old ready for bed. I was in the kitchen adjacent to her bedroom, reaching up into the top shelf of our pantry for one of her nighttime pull-up diapers. As I was doing so, I caught something in the corner of my eye. I glanced toward the great room and saw a frightening sight. It was a very large phantom that must have stood 7 feet tall. It was all black with a hooded robe. I couldn't see a face, but it was moving very quickly toward me and vanished into thin air within two seconds.
The rooms were all lit quite well; therefore, I wasn't seeing a shadow or anything like that. I have never in my 44 years seen anything like that -- BUT earlier this year, after Christmas, about two weeks after my father passed away, my eldest son's girlfriend claims to have seen the same apparition hovering in mid-air at the top of our stairs leading to my bedroom. She also saw it the second time standing at the top of the stairs to my bedroom and it was standing there with its arms crossed -- almost as if it was protecting or guarding something.
Obviously, this is very frightening, to say the least. I am not sure what this means, but there have been other occurrences along with these. My house is brand new and we are the only family who has lived here. I plan to get an exorcist or paranormal investigators here to see what is going on.
