Shadow People and CreaturesRate this encounter: Ashley, Torrington, Connecticut, 1992-2002
Before I moved to Vegas I lived in a small town in Connecticut. My family moved into a brand new house in 1992, I was about three, and I had a new little brother. I don't remember anything for the first few years because I was so young. I had my first encounter (that I can remember) when I was about 7. I was sitting in bed with the babysitter reading a book, as we sat on the bed the mattress bounced as if someone was underneath. My babysitter flipped out and took me out of the room.
The next thing I remember is waking up one night and looking over next to my bed. There was something that looked like a black figure of a small animal looking at me and then ran out of the door into my brother's room. I screamed and my parents came in I told them what had happened and they said it was a dream. But a few nights later I woke again to look over at my desk and see the image of a man sitting on top laughing. I didn't bother to tell my family because they wouldn't believe me.
Another time I went to bring the dog in from outside (there was a door from the garage to the backyard that the dog used). I opened the door from the house to the garage to find a tall, blacked-out figure standing right next to my dog. I freaked out and let the dog in. I told my mom and she said a little while ago she had seen the same thing. There was also a time when I had a friend see the man's figure as well when she was spending the night.
The thing that freaked me out most was when my youngest sister was born. She ended up in my old room and I was in another. One night I was babysitting her with a friend and my sister was in bed. The baby monitor was on and I could hear her cooing which was weird because she only cooed at people. I went to check on her and she was laying on her back with her hands in the air toward the ceiling just staring and cooing then her hands and her eyes almost followed something to the closet door and then she stopped and just looked at me.
A lot of other things happened in that house, noises, footsteps, and misplaced objects. We also had a motion sensor security system that would randomly go off in the middle of the night. It happened so often my dad stopped setting the alarm.
Some people don't believe me and think I make all this up but it all has really happened. It was great to log on to this website and read other encounters that sound just like mine because I now I am not crazy!
