An apartment that I used to live in was right off of a bike trail. I enjoyed taking my dog for walks on it and at night sometimes my friends and I would go walking on it because well we would always hear people talking about their "strange experiences" back on the trail at night. We had a few of our own experiences but nothing that would make me not want to go back. Well, that was until one day I saw something that I will never forget. I remember it like it was yesterday...I was 18 at the time (I'm now 33) I just got home from work, it was in the middle of the day. I pulled into my parking spot and got out of my car, shut the door, and as I turned around something caught my eye. There was a tall hooded cloaked figure standing by a light post, this figure was at least 7 feet tall. It had no face, no hands, no feet...just a hooded cloak. The sight of it sent fear throughout my whole body, I wanted to run but couldn't do anything but stand there and stare at it. I finally got myself to run up 3 flights of stairs, I could still see it the whole time just standing there watching me (I could feel it watching me). When I got to the top of the stairs I turned to see if it had moved, sure enough, it was in the same place. I ran as fast as I possibly could to my apartment door, it wasn't that far of a run. By the time I got to my door the cloaked figure was right there on the same floor as me and just stood there facing me. I scrambled to get the door open and as soon as I got inside and turned to shut the door.....THERE IT WAS right in my doorway! I slammed the door and didn't dare open it back up or even look to see if it was still outside. I told my roommates about it and they just chuckled thinking I was making it all up. They made me feel like I was crazy. A couple of days passed and I was sitting in my car with one of my roommates not wanting to go inside, so we were just talking about random things. As I was sitting there I was watching clouds when I saw a cloud that looked like a demonic face....I couldn't take my eyes off of it. Then all of a sudden out of nowhere there it was again. The cloaked figure was back and this time right beside me...standing right next to my car. I was frozen in fear, I couldn't talk or move. The figure had no face whatsoever...it was just pitch black where a face/head should have been. At this point, I was completely frozen (it was like I was paralyzed). I could feel myself trying to move and I was trying to speak but nothing was happening. After what seemed like forever I noticed that there was a bright pure white light/mist coming out of me (my lower stomach area) going straight to this cloaked figure. It was taking something from me and I was completely helpless against this thing. After what I can only guess was just a minute or so of this thing taking whatever this white mist was I seen a little bright ball of white light comes out of that area in my stomach and go straight into the cloaked figure. Then it was gone just as fast as it appeared. I felt so drained and defeated afterward.
Something that I forgot to mention at the beginning of this story is that I believe that I was pregnant at the time of this, I do not know for sure but it's just a gut feeling I had at the time. My body was telling me I was, it's hard to explain, but I just know that I was. I say I wasn't sure because I hadn't taken a pregnancy test at the time. Anyway after this encounter with the cloaked figure the feeling of being pregnant was gone...I mean completely gone. I took a test the next day and it came up negative, I believe that this cloaked figure was in fact the grim reaper. Since that day I have not seen this figure.
