1. I ran into a younger version of myself in the woods

When I was younger I used to live near thick woods. I used to dress very, uhh, uniquely… Like I would wear Halloween costumes anytime and stuff like that, I had a weird fascination with masks. Anyway, one day while wearing a spiderman mask and playing in the woods I see a person wearing a leather jacket and oddly colored jeans. I tried to follow them, but lost them in the forest after about 30 minutes of trying and then went home.

Fast forward about 7 or 8 years. I don’t live at the house near the thick woods anymore, but my grandfather does and I visit him periodically. I decide to go walk around the forest for old times sake so I put on my black leather jacket and tie dye jeans and go walking around when I see this small person wearing a spiderman mask following me around. Since I know this forest like the back of my hand, I lose them quickly.

About an hour later I realize what happened and feel genuinely scared of what happened. Strange shit happens in northern B.C.

2. I followed a shadow figure through my best friend’s house

When I was about 17 I was at my friend’s apartment building, which his parents owned. We had an apartment to hangout in on the top floor and used to go to the roof to smoke. That night, we were about to go up, but I had to pee, so I told him I’d meet him up there. After I was done, I went up the stairs to the attic portion that was connected to the roof. There were no lights, so we always used our phones to guide us. It was an old building and the attic was creepy and cluttered all the time. As I made my way to the roof door, I saw a shadow pass by me. I followed the direction it went thinking it was my friend. I kept saying that I knew it was him and to stop playing around. It passed me a few more times, when I heard my friends voice from downstairs. He got a call from his girlfriend and was in another room talking to her the whole time. I have no idea what that shadow figure was and I still refuse to go back up to the roof at night after that.

3. An invisible presence yanked out my ponytail

My house has always had unexplained things happen in it. These all happened in the last couple of weeks-

I was sitting on the settee watching telly when my dog started wagging its tail looking behind me, then something touched my hair, I looked behind me expecting to see my dad messing around and saw a huge black mist like shape, I don’t remember getting past it but suddenly I’m next to my mum telling her what I’ve just seen and on the verge of a panic attack. Then my head is yanked backwards by my pony tail and my hair falls free around my shoulders, the bobble (hair tie) hasn’t turned back up yet. My mum and I got the fuck out of there until my dad came back later that day.

A few days ago something laughed a really sinister laugh in my ear and pushed me. My bf heard it too and thankfully stayed with me since my parents were out of town.

The other night something hit my ribs when I was in bed, It made a hollow thud, I thought it was my bf elbowing me and told him to be more careful as it hurt, he said it wasn’t him and that he heard it too, I have a dark bruise on my ribs from it.

The other night we heard a woman crying or laughing (couldn’t tell which, it was a very haunting sound) at the bottom of the stairs, my mum and I were sat in the front room only a couple of feet away from the noise,.

My dad had perfume sprayed at him and then the bottle fell off the shelf. We keep smelling really strong baby powder around the house even though no one in our house uses it.

Then the usual footsteps and cupboards being opened each night. My dogs, especially the old one seem to go really waggy and fuss something that isn’t even there quite a few times a day.

Its gotten really bad this past few weeks, Its the first time I’ve seen something and the first time I’ve felt it actually touch me. It should quieten down though soon, it usually only does it for a month or so and then sometimes nothing will happen for months or even a year.
