native American shadow terror
(Richardson Tx U.S.)
My good friend and his dad lived at an older apartment complex in the late 90's in what is now a newer development called Brick Row in Richardson Tx. My friend dropped out of 9th grade and and pretty much chilled at home for a couple years trying to figure out his next step in life. I would sometimes skip school and walk the couple blocks to his apartment to hang out smoke a little weed and pass time till school let out. I remember stopping by one morning and he told me of a bizarre incident he had the previous day. He had a dream and in this dream he was sleeping upstairs in his room and was awakened by a knock at the front door so he went downstairs and asked who it was... receiving no response he looked through the peep hole and saw a man, the guy says I'm having car trouble can I use your phone. Well my friend said sorry but no and started to go back upstairs. Just then he heard the knock again so again he says who is it as he looks through the peep hole, the guy is still there so my friend has a change of heart and opens the door... To his shock as soon as the door opens the man is no longer standing there and in his place is a large dark shadow that immediately busts through the threshold and begins attacking and choking my friend. At that moment my buddy wakes up in his room upstairs, the strange dream is over yet the shadow is not gone and is hovering over him choking him. My friend said at this point he knows he's awake and is being strangled by the entity from his night terror. He said it was so real that he feared for his life and he just struggled until this thing was gone. He felt uncomfortable sleeping upstairs after that but eventually forced himself to, for a while after this when trying to sleep he said it felt like something was in his room in the shadows watching. He would recognize it out loud and tell it it wasn't welcomed. He never had this happen again and about three years later his father
and him moved to Austin Tx.
Fast forward four years later, I had a couple other good friends from high school that became roommates at this same location. All of us would hang out at there house and party. The two guys didn't know about this incident that happened to my buddy a few years prior. I noticed an odd creepy feel to the upstairs area the few times I went up there, like oppressive and watching. The guy who's room was up there rarely slept up there. One day he told me of an incident.... He was laying in bed about to crash and out of nowhere there's this dark shadowy mass on top of him strangling him. He said he was so scared and could hardly move let alone talk. He said the first thing that came to his mind was to call out audibly the name of Jesus Christ.... It took alot of effort but eventually did murmur "Jesus Christ" and just like that this thing wasn't there any longer.... Gone!
As soon as I heard is story my mind automatically connected the two incidence's and as I processed the facts of both I had eureka moment. The shadow was the same, the setting of the apartment complex was the same (just two different buildings on the same property). As I looked for an answer as to why I thought of the little natural spring that snakes through the complex in a wooded area. Years before my good friend and I used to explore around this wooded area. One day we came to the place where the spring waters bubble up from the ground and there we saw a marble stone adjacent to the spring that read something like "this place used to be the living area for a branch of tejano Caddo tribe of native Americans called the Yoiuane tribe. Forgive me if I miss spelled the tribes name. They lived in that spot from about 1690-1870 or so hunting buffalo and utilizing the natural spring waters. I'm almost certain this was and may still be the catalyst for the shadowy night terror that attacks.
If anyone reading this has had an experience like this in this same area please share your story. Thank you.
