When I was 7 I used to live in Georgia with my dad but I found his apartment really creepy and I would always feel like I was being watched in my room or occasionally catch a glimpse of something moving out of my peripheral vision and look to see nothing there. Easily enough it terrified me and I wound up moving back to Chicago soon after but on my first night home I had a dream I was back at my dads place and I was alone in a room with these black hooded figures and no matter how hard I tried I couldn't see their faces. Naturally I got freaked out and tried to leave only to see a fire in the middle of them and something that looked human burning over it and they all turned and looked at me. I ran but every time I turned around they would be stand there behind me soon after I woke up. I was shaking and short of breath but I froze when I saw the same figure in the corner of my room slowly making it's way closer to me and I managed to scream when it was almost right in front of my face and my mom came in to get me. I wound up sleeping in her room that night but when she turned the light out again I saw the same figure walk out from her mirror and make it's way over, every since then I've been terrified to be in the dark.
Recently I've been seeing the figure more and more in the day time from the corner of my eye or in mirrors that I do my best to cover. Ever since that time I've hated mirrors and the only other time I spent a while looking into a mirror was when I was twelve and I saw my face contort into a horrifying indescribable thing and my eyes glossed over to white. I know it sounds fake but It happened for me and I was fully awake and I still have no way of explaining it.
I've never seen the figures face but recently I found out a few of my friends have seen the same hooded figure with no face so i'm curious has anyone else seen this figure? Or if anyone does know, what does it mean? Why is it following me?
