The Doppelganger Haunting



There was one time my sister saw this entity for herself, and I must say her experience was a little different. She was working as a shift manager at Pizza Hut. She was at the restaurant pretty early in the morning before all the other workers got there. She saw someone walking in the kitchen area. This person had long red hair, just like her, and was also dressed in a Pizza Hut uniform, just like she was.

My sister said a feeling of dread came over her and she was really scared. She actually had to leave the building and wait for another employee to show up. She was certain that it wasn't another employee she saw, since she was the only one with red hair. She also confirmed that the doppelganger moved fast and its face couldn't be seen. It really scared her to think that her doppelganger had finally found her and followed her.

My sister firmly believes that if she looks the doppelganger in the face that she will somehow die. That's just the feeling she gets from it, and that's why it scared her to know that it followed her to work.

That was the last time any of us saw the thing... for a while. We didn't forget about it, but I guess we all thought maybe it couldn't find us anymore. But we were wrong.


The most recent event happened last year. My sister and I are all grown up now; she's 26 and I'm 20 now, and we have since moved away from Florida. My mom and sister live in Kentucky on the same property and I live in New York.

It was a typical day for my mom. She was by the sink doing some dishes in her home. There is a window right above the sink, and when she looked out of it she saw "my sister" walking up the path to the front door wearing her work uniform. She expected to see my sister come through the door to finish getting ready for work, but she never came inside the house.

An hour later, my real sister did arrive at my mom's house. She was still in her pajamas, so my mom questioned her about what happened earlier. Like so many times before, my sister denied walking over there and told my mom she was still sleeping at the time this happened. She wasn't needed at work until a few hours later, so there was no reason for her to be in her uniform.

They were both freaked out by this latest incident. We all thought the doppelganger had left since it had been years since anyone saw it, but somehow it found my sister again.

I really don't know how to explain all of these events, and I'm not sure if it will ever leave my sister alone. I don't know what will happen if she looks this entity in the face, if anything, but I hope she never does. For now, though, it's been a while since any one of us have seen it... but that doesn't mean it isn't out there.
