Sorry everyone, the riddle/question has been solved. The person guessed the correct answer on their first try!
The answer was.....*drumroll*: 4! I have 4 shadows following me.
I had so much fun hearing and receiving your guesses and tries. The winner shall receive 3 requests as promised. The other 3 randomly selected winners will each receive 1 unless one of them refuses their request, then I'll select another winner. Thank you all so much for playing and having fun with me!~
