Me and my family were visiting our cousin, and this boy told me to come, and I said no. He started to act weird, so I ran away. He started chase me, so then I went to me cousin. She said for him to go away. Then he did. He ran away floating. My cousin said she never see that before. Her mom said it was a ghost.|

I was at the Howard Street Cemetery near the old jail, and my friend and I were taking pictures. I was fifteen at the time and was extremely depressed after going through my first major breakup. I was constantly cloaked in negative energy and could barely function. Anyway it was a Friday afternoon, and my best friend and I were at the cemetery at dusk. We weren't looking for anything in particular because neither of us believed in the paranormal.
After an hour or so of being there I was staring out at the field when I saw something crawl out the tree not 20 feet away from me. It was brown and opaque and very mist-like. It was the size of a man. When it hit the ground it sped across the cemetery at about 25 mph. I watched it move effortlessly across the street and then went right through a fence. I could make out ''body parts'' on this thing: a head, legs, and arms though they were hard to focus on because it was mist-like and glided by so fast. The most interesting part is that the legs moved slowly almost like in slow-motion even though the object moved very fast across the field.
The whole thing happened within two or three seconds. Because of my fragile mental state I didn't say anything and looked away nervously because I thought I'd been seeing things. Then my friend said ''did you just see that?'' She described what I'd just seen to a tee, and we spent the next half hour searching the grounds for what we'd seen assuming it was a coyote or something. Of course coyotes can't climb trees like that, but we were willing to believe it was anything but a ghost. We ended up stopping our search and went home.
We didn't bring it up again until about a year later when we were on the phone. I brought it up, and it was at that moment we came to our senses and realized what we'd seen. I now work in a building very close to that cemetery, and you can see the cemetery from the parking lot. Sometimes when I walk out to my car I get a pain and pressing sensation in my chest. I realized this probably has some relevance; a man named Giles was pressed to death in the location of the parking lot during the witch trials. I wonder if what I'd seen was him, but I think it was just a manifestation of all the negative history at that place.
