"Yeah! Harrison, that was a good catch!" said Courtney to my little brother, Harrison, as he had just caught a frog. "Okay then, lets put it here for now, until we can find it a better place to live." said Harrison. So Harrison, Courtney, Karli, and Corey go and try to catch fireflies for the frog to eat. Kristen and myself sat there looking after the frog to make sure Britney, my grandparent's female dog, doesn't eat the frog. "Okay Kristen, lets go looking for fireflies." I said to Kristen, she replied; "Okay Reagan, lets go!" We walk to the door of the porch, and we see a shadowy figure standing by my grandfather's shed, and I yell at the shadowy figure; "HEY! WHO ARE YOU? You're not suppose to be on this property..." The figure just stood there holding a lantern that was lit, yet the light didn't light up a single part of his body... the figure had the clear outline of a man wearing a cap of some sort. Kristen and I just stood there gaping at the figure and I said in a shaky and scared voice to Kristen, "K-Kristen... Are you seeing what I am seeing?" and Kristen replied in the shaky and scared voice I had spoken to her in and said, "U..uh-huh... I-I sure did Reagan..." We were unbelievably scared, since she was about 7 or 8 and I was 5 or 6, we ran inside screaming "Mom! Dad!" and our mothers and fathers looked at us and said, "What is it sweetie?" I said in a really shaky voice, "M-me and Kristen saw this figure out by Pop's shed.. we don't know who it was.. I asked him who he was, but he didn't answer.. he just stood there with a lantern that was lit... but the lantern didn't light up any part of his body!" Kristen said, "She's right, we did.." our parents and my grandparents looked at us with those 'no-you-guys-didn't' eyes and then Pop- my grandfather- said, "Ooh, you two must've seen my ghost." We said, "Huh? What do you mean by 'your' ghost?" Then he just chuckled and didn't reply... Since then I've seen that figure on creepy, stormy nights. Just as before when me and Kristen saw him, he's holding the same old lantern, and the same creepy shadowy figure... my little brother's claimed to have seen him walking around outside my grandparents' house in the middle of the night. Knowing that alone sends a discomforting chill straight down my spine...
