I saw the hat man when I was younger, but I don’t remember exactly how old I was. I remember seeing him as if it only happened yesterday.

I was in my aunt’s house it was late at night everyone was asleep except for me and my cousin, I was waiting for my mom to come to pick me up to go home. My cousin eventually fell asleep on me, so I was all by myself and I had to go to the bathroom.  So I get up and head to the bathroom and I stopped dead in my tracks.

I saw this black figure standing near the front door, he appeared to have on a long coat and a hat and it seemed as if he was staring at me.  I couldn’t see his eyes but I knew he was staring dead at me.  I was frozen stiff and couldn’t move,  I was so scared!  But moments later he disappeared and I just ran back into the living room, I was so scared to walk out the front door when my mom finally came.
