There are the nights that it does not scare me at all, but other nights it just simply gives me a shiver down my spine. There are a few CCTV cameras around the property where I live. The monitor for the cameras is in my room. As I am a bad sleeper, I often wake up unexpectedly, usually between 12 and 3am. I have no idea if there is something perhaps making a noise that wakes me, but once I’m awake there is no chance of me going back to sleep. This is when I enjoy the complete silence and read, but I can’t help but glance up at the monitor every now and then.
It is the camera on the bottom right that always catches my attention; it picks up a reflection in a window of one of the back rooms, part of my studio in fact. There is a shape of a person standing there, it does not move, and there is no mistaking that is looks like a man.
Every night I look, and the figure is there. It looks as though he is looking out of the window. I have come up really close to the monitor to try to figure out if there is some sort of reflection forming this shape, maybe from other lights and shadows, but have come up with nothing. I have gone outside in the day, and examined the whole area, but I just can’t figure out what is making this weird and rather eerie reflection the window.
The strangest thing as well is that it is there every night, but there was one night that the reflection was not there at all.
As a child, and a teenager, I experienced a few strange things, but never something as consistent as this. I find it so strange and wonder what others think?
