This event took place in my childhood home, where my family members and I often experienced strange occurrences. I no longer live there, but the eerie stories remain vivid.

One Saturday evening, when it was just my oldest brother, his young daughter, and myself at home, my niece grew bored and wanted to play hide-and-seek.

It was around 8 or 9 pm in the summer, so the sun had just set but it was completely dark outside. After a few rounds, it was my turn to count. I searched the entire house but could not find them.

I went to the backyard, where the back porch light faintly illuminated our storage shed. My brothers sometimes used it as a spot to relax and smoke, so a chair was in the doorway.

Sitting in the chair was a man with a little girl on his lap. Assuming it was my brother and niece, I called out to them repeatedly, but there was no response or movement.

Unnerved, I went back inside, only to hear my niece's laugh coming from the living room closet. I opened the door to find my brother and niece sitting on the floor.

Noticing my alarmed state, my brother asked what was wrong. I quietly told him so as not to frighten his daughter, and we decided to stop playing for the night.
