Shadow Person

I was 8 years old in the early 80's. We lived in this house for about 2 years. My brother and I who is 2 years older each had our own rooms. My bedroom was down the hall, last one on the right. My parents bedroom was directly across the hallway. Now my bed's position: when you walk into the bedroom from the hallway you would walk right into the foot of the bed. My brother and I would sleep with our doors open and with the hallway light on in case we need to get up and use the restroom or whatever. My parents always slept with their doors shut.

I clearly remember being in bed and waking up to see a black silhouette standing in the doorway. I felt like it was staring at me, but I wasn't scared because it look like the silhouette of my Mom in a nightgown with a perm. And she did have a perm at that time.

As I am looking at this black figure in my doorway I mumbled the words "Mom"? and she didn't reply. Knowing that my mom wouldn't just do that to us, I got really scared. When I went to sit up in bed to get a better look and I can see this thing clear as day with the hallway light on. This black figure in my doorway (I repositioned myself to get a better look by sitting up) and when I did that... it just seemed to disappear. I was so freaked out I just laid back down and went back to sleep. This is the first time I have shared this and for what I experienced it still has never felt right.

That's my story, thank you.
