What did i encounter..? [LONG]
Hey, i am new here and i didnt know where else to post this. Since i dont know wether it is a ghost or- something else. I never really talked about this publicly because it really makes me seem insane.

So it all happened a few years ago when i was 14. I was at a house party.
To get into the garden you had to go down the stairs from the living room to the basement and then you walked trough a big room to a door that lead into the garden.
Now, in the basement, right next to the door that leads to the garden, was a big, old dusty washing mashine with dusty newspaper from 2003 or sth on it. Also, the host of the party has two brothers and the kids in the house party were all girls, including me. This is important!!

So me and the group of teens were in the garden. I was cold, so i asked one of the kids to come with me inside, because i didnt wanna be alone.
So she said, 'sure, ill go first, you tell the host where we are in case something happens'.

After i did that i went inside, and noticed that a person was sitting on the washing mashine, reading that exact newspaper. The person startled me for a second. I felt very uneasy, but thinking it was my friend i turned to them and was like '[name of friend]..?'

The 'person' seemed to be male with short hair, i didnt really see much else, because it was kinda dark in that basement, and not much light came in from the old dusty windows.
They looked up from the newspaper, and then back down, i apologized to them and went up the stairs.

After this i told my friend what happened, asking if there was a guy sitting on the washing mashine when she went in too. She said she didnt, but was worried, so we went back down and checked out the spot where i saw the guy.

There was no guy anymore, and the newspaper was folded down as it was before, everything was still covered in dust, as if nothing happened.

Me and my friend tought that it was probably one of the brothers of the host, and didnt think about it for the rest of the day.

The next day i was still at the hosts place, since i couldnt get home i just stayed the night.
I needed to go to the toilet and asked the host where it was, she told me, and right as i was about to open the door, the same guy i saw on that washing mashine the day before, rushed down the stairs, got in before me and locked the door.

Great, i tought, and went back into the living room, still thinking it was the hosts brother. She was like 'oh, are you done already?', stood up(i followed her to the kitchen, the bathroom door is right next to the kitchen and you could see it from there), opened the bathroom door SECONDS after the guy locked me out, and went in as if everything was normal.

When she came out i immediately asked her how she got in, since apparently her brother rushed in before me, she just laughed and said 'what?? My brothers are both out of town, we are home alone! I wouldnt host a house party if anyone was home, silly! I would get in trouble!'

Who was he? Why didnt i see all of his features like i would w any normal person? There wasnt even alcohol because we were kids! This felt so surreal and the entire time i was there when it happened, i had a strange feeling in my guts too.

A few weeks after it happened, i finally told the host everything and she looked at me weirdly, reassuring me there was no guy present. We were home alone. She didnt notice any of this and told me to just forget it.

She was clearly freaked out by this, checked her home to see if someone broke in- but that couldnt be possible as well because she has a good security system and you could only get into the garden from IN the house trough the basement!!

Her brothers have an alibi that they were gone too and every once in a while i am reminded of this encounter, wondering who or what he was.

Thanks for hearing me out!
And thanks for an answer in advance!!

Belief bias occurs when we make illogical conclusions in order to confirm our preexisting beliefs. Belief perseverance refers to our tendency to maintain a belief even after the evidence we used to form the belief is contradicted.

Not really sure what you saw, but is it possible, since this was an all girl party and I know how teen guys it possible a guy crashed the party by sneaking in?

"So she said, 'sure, ill go first, you tell the host where we are in case something happens'." Weird thing for you friend to say.

Also you were there for a party and you spent the night but never used the bathroom until the next day? I wish I had your bladder. Ha ha!
