Comment by Lynn: Is this home on Walnut Street?.
Categories: face, man
From December 2011 until April 2012 I lived in a recovery house in Springfield that was located on the corner of Grand and Park ave (Recovery Chapel's big house). Prior to it becoming the recovery house it was an old nursing home and if I'm correct, it used to be a church before then.
It had a main lobby area with a chapel in the back side of it and 4 hallways branched off the main area in the shape of an ''x'' with 22 rooms in each hall. They housed two and three men per room. My roommate had been terminated from the program and I had the room to myself while waiting for another guy to move in.
In January of 2012 I was sitting on my bed playing music on my laptop and out of the corner of my eye I saw a black flash in the mirror on the wall. I looked at the wall and saw nothing there. I went back to playing on the computer and about 10 minutes later I saw the flash again so I turned my attention to the wall immediately.|
What I saw was a figure wearing what appeared to be a torn and tattered cloak or cape of some sort. It crawled up the wall and onto the ceiling. When I blinked it was gone. Every night after that I could hear something shuffling around on the floor and I could see shadows throughout the room in the dark.
One night I had decided to go to sleep early. I was laying on my stomach. As I began to drift into sleep what felt like someone's open palm smacked me on the back really hard. About 2 weeks later I was moved to a different room in a different hall across the building.
For about a month there were no other appearances until one night I could see a shadowy figure standing at the foot of my bed. My roommate in that room was asleep in his bed and our door was locked so there was no way anyone else could have been in there.
