Black Thing

Cheyenne, New York , USA
November 1999

When I was about ten my dad got a trailer and I lived in it ( we used to have two other homes). I had a friend sleep over (her name is Katrina). We were telling ghost stories before bed, the door was open a little, when we saw a black thing. What was weird was it had no top or bottom and the hallway it was against was white so we could see it good. We thought it was my parents or my dog but it was there for (?)10 minutes and than it went away. It would come back, stay longer, and then disappear. We were scared half to death, but I finally fell asleep. Katrina woke me up the next morning at 7:00am and her face was white and said the black thing was there for a couple of hours last night. When she told me it was by the door again. After about 15 minutes it went away. A couple weeks later I was in my room reading a book out loud when I turned to the door to see the same black thing again. Before I saw it the door was opening and closing. To this day I haven't seen it because now I live about 5 minutes away from the trailer. When I saw it, it gave me an uneasy feeling.

I want to tell you a little about what is next to the trailer. To the side of the trailer there is a very giant hill that my mom says there are two tombstones on it. Next to the hill there is a dirt road lined with stones that Native Americans and Soldiers fought on. Sometimes at night you can hear wolves and if you look hard enough you can see things like faces and hear voices. I do not like going outside at night.

Near the trailer, there is an old house that was built in the 1890's. It caught on fire but we were able to keep it standing.
