Strange Humanoid Encounter?
I have had some weird encounters before however this one still has me puzzled and I hope by sharing this someone may have experienced something similar and is able to shed some light on the subject.
On Tuesday the 13th of February I was at my Grandparents house in a village called Cottingham in East Yorkshire when I saw something that I have still yet to explain rationally. It was 12:06 AM and I had just finished watching a movie trailer on YouTube in my Grandparents living room when I felt like I was being stared at.
I turned and looked out through the sliding glass door that lead into the conservatory when I saw a white face staring right at me. It was just pure white and was in a near perfect circle, it had huge black eyes that had a small fleck of grey in. Naturally I though it may have been a reflection due to the glass door when it moved revealing a slender neck and shoulders. At this point I realised just how humanoid it looked. I did not take any photos nor video as I was far to scared in the moment to and my first thought was to leave the room which I did.
I decided to move into the kitchen thinking I must have been going crazy and went to fill up a glass if water when a pure white figure darted across the kitchen window. At this point I ran upstairs and broke down in my Grandparents bedroom. My Grandmother offered several plausible explanations as to what I saw. She suggested it could’ve been an owl distorted by shadows to look so strange or that it could’ve been a deer as deer’s have been known to come off the farm lands and into peoples back gardens, but I wasn’t convinced.
My Grandmother then explained how ghosts of Monks have been seen in the area. A monistry was build between 12-13th century along Priory road only to have been later moved due to land disputes. However monks would still do pilgrims within the village to St Marys Church and as such many monks have passed away within or around what is now Priory Road.
This seemed a slightly more plausible theory however I am not convinced it was a ghost I saw. I have had encounters with ghosts before and this did not feel like one.
I don’t know what I saw and I am not stating that it was some form of extra terrestrial being but that seems to be a more and more likely. I am hoping that I will one day come to a conclusion but as of right now I can’t get what I saw out of my head. I have since been placed with nightmares all of them ending with a white figure standing above me with the face I saw.
