I was 11 years old. A group of us children went to play baseball in the parking lot of Yummy bakery, on Hagley Park Rd., next to the gas station. It was about 6:30 p.m. and the bakery was closed for the day.
The sun was still visible in the evening sky.
I was on 3rd base and waiting for the ball to be hit so I could make the home run.
Out of boredom, I started looking around and turned my attention to the mango tree that sat behind the wall, in the back of the gas station.
My eyes were met by that of a human like form. I was stunned by the eye contact, but I kept my composure for the entire length of the stare down it was giving me.
I saw the neck/shoulder up to the head. The rest of the body not seen because it was behind the wall.
Skin was white as printing paper. Eyes were glossy and the blackest black. Nose very thin, and mouth was a mere slit. Chin very small and narrow, head shaped like an balloon/almost triangular, huge head. Neck so skinny, itís almost a phenomenon how it held such a big head.
After about what seemed like 2 minutes, I called out to my brother, who was pitching the ball, while I kept my eyes on the humanoid.
It did not budge and kept itís eyes fixed on me. My brother couldnít hear me over all the noise of the other players, so I left my place at 3rd base, running toward my brother, keeping my eyes on the humanoid, it still did not budge.
When I got my brotherís attention, screaming for him to:
Look, look, look!
The crowd also stopped and looked in the direction of my pointing finger.
Thatís when the humanoid ducked behind the wall.
Dead silence was among all of us for about 5 to 8 seconds, then we all screamed and hollered, and ran back home, down the ghetto lane, never to return to that parking lot, never told our parents, and never spoke of it again.
This was a real live event. I was not in bed, or sleeping in any way. I and all 16 people were wide awake.
