I had a few strange things happened to me, but this was the most recent.
We had a ghostly WW2 solder in our apartment, staring at me during the night and wondering around the kitchen looking for something. For months I would wake up sensing him. He really bothered me until I started to tell him to leave me be.
Hair-standing up scary stuff.
A couple weeks after all the weird stuff started to happened, I found my husband laying on the floor, with his arm completely in the heating duct. “What are you doing down there?”
“I lost my dart in the heating duct,” he said. “I’ve going to get it out.”
I was thinking, why is it in the duct and not in the dart board, but I said, “Well, be careful.”
“I feel something here,” he answered, after a few minutes of fumbling around. I moved over to watch him. “Something small and smooth. Struck in the sheet metal. It’s not my dart.”
He worked at it for a while and then pulled it out. It turned out to be a Good Conduct medal for a man who fought in WW2. His name was on it. Mike decided he wanted to return it, so he looked up the last name in the phone book. Only one person had the name. He went to the person’s home and gave her the medal.
“So did you find the owner?” I asked when he returned.
“No,” he said. “But I did find the daughter-in-law of the owner. She told me he’d just died a few months ago. She just found his picture in uniform and she was glad to finally have the medal. She was going to hang the picture up and find some way to place the medal on it.”
“He died a few months ago?”
“That’s when I started seeing the shadow man.”
I never had any problem with any scary night times visits again.
Seems he was looking for his Good Conduct medal.
Halloween is a time for family and friends, eating too much candy and watching too many scary movies. I hope everyone has a wonderful time. Stay safe.
