The Black Hand
I had an experience as a child that I kept within me for many years. Now, this is not some great bed-shaking, poltergeist story. Rather, it is quite simple, terrifying then, now eerie, and curious. After all these years I decided to search the Web to see if there was anyone else out there who reported something similar. I did. One has written a book with almost the same title. Either we unrelated children have all the same disposition to hallucination, or something really was there.
My experience happened at my home in Miami, Florida around 1973-74. I was only 7 or 8 years old. I was in bed when I felt a presence in my room that drew my attention to the foot of my bed. There, from what appeared to be just beyond the bedspread, a five-fingered black, very black, hand stood motionless. The fingers were all extended and the palm was facing me. The thumb position indicates it was the right hand, as if something was reaching up from under the bed. I was so terrified, I could not scream, I could barely breathe. I remember wanting to throw something at it. Despite this "memorable" event, I now cannot remember how this all resolved that terrifying night. Somehow, I fell asleep, but the memory will be with me always.
HAS ANY ONE SEEN THE BLACK HAND TOO?
