I used to live in an apartment around 145th Street and Western a little over a decade ago. My family was dirt poor, and we'd managed to find a 2-bedroom we could barely afford; it remained sparsely furnished the entire time we lived there (no beds, no dining table, etc. )
There are three incidents I can recall like they happened only last week.
The first was when we were all having family movie night in the room my mother shared with my youngest sibling (we were two to a room. ) My mom was setting the movie up while my brothers and I heated up homemade chicken wings and popcorn in the tiny kitchen.
The way the apartment was laid out, you could see into the opening of the small hall that led to the bedrooms and a bathroom if you stood in the opening between the kitchen and the dining area.
My oldest younger brother was further into the kitchen, manning the microwave, while me and the youngest, who had just started elementary, were standing in front of the fridge in clear shot of the hall. I can't accurately describe the feeling I had, but something told me to look up. As I did, nearly completely synchronized, my brother did too. In the mouth of the hall stood a shadowy figure about 4 feet and a half, almost leaning out from behind the wall as if peaking at us.
We both started to cry hysterically, almost out of control of our emotions and really scared (mind you I was high school aged at this point. ) We ran right passed the spot it had been standing (it had since snuck back out of view) into my mother's room to tell her what we'd seen.
She was convinced it was stress, but I begged to differ. We had both seen the same thing at the same time. I let my younger brother describe what he'd seen first and felt a little ill when he said he felt it staring at him. He also went on to say he had seen similar figures at school watching him while he played in the yard during breaks.
