The Yellow Eyes

About 6 years ago, when I was around 9 years old, I was over at my best friends house. Her name was Katie, and she was 1 year younger than me. Katie lives on a small farm which has many barns. One of the 2 story barns faces her next door neighbors house, which is about 200 feet away from the house. One day Katie and I were on the 2nd story of the barn sitting in the window that faced that house. We were talking, and we heard something coming from the house. So we looked, and all of the people that lived there were getting in there car, and leaving, which includes the mother, father, daughter, and brother. I guess they were going out to eat or something. We saw them leave, and then we just went back to talking. All of a sudden I had that feeling that someone was watching us. So for some strange reason I looked at the upstairs window that was facing us. And there I saw it. It was a shadow in the window looking at us. So I didn't think anything of it at first, so I showed Katie, and that was when she noticed it. I looked really hard, and realized that it had yellow eyes. And it was looking right at us. So Katie and I freaked out, and went flying down the stairs, and out the barn. We ran all the way back home. We talked about it for a little while, and thought maybe it was a cat, but it was a shadow of a person. And all you could see was its eyes. So we talked to the daughter that lived there, and she told us that there were ghosts in the house. She said that there was several ghosts. One that was in a painting, a soldier from the war, one under the bed, and one in a rocking chair. She said that she never slept in her room because there was a ghost that lived under her bed. So then we knew that it had to be ghost. Plus, they didn't own any animals. But they moved from that house about 3 years ago, and I haven't seen anything since. I guess the ghosts left with them. But that is an experience I never want to see again.
