Location: Ontario, Canada.

The paranormal has always intrigued me as I’ve grown older; the thought of scary, abnormal beings secretly living in our world is just so cryptic, I love it. However, never did I think that I was going to be a victim of one of these supernatural events.

My name is Thomas and I’m seventeen years old as I’m writing this, turning eighteen in less than a month. This all started nearly eight months ago, in April. I was out late driving with two of my friends, Michael and Darrin, after we had just seen a horror movie at the cinema. By the time the film had ended, it was past midnight and we were simply driving around aimlessly.

After stopping at a Tim Horton’s for a quick snack, we had the idea of sneaking around and exploring some abandoned buildings in the area. All three of us sort of have a knack for that kind of stuff. It was a warm Spring night and the moon was glowing very bright, drumming up the perfect atmosphere for this occasion.

So just to give everyone some context, I’ve had a lot of strange things happen to me in my life and I’m unsure how much to share but here’s an account of one of the worst paranormal encounters.

So at the time I was about 14 years old me, my mom, and my brother all lived in a two bedroom apartment. I shared a room with my mom and my brother had his own room as he is only a year or so younger then me. Anyways I had a bed farest away from the door, at the foot of my bed I had a computer.

One night my brother was at a friends house and my mom was sleeping in the livingroom watching tv, I was in our room in the dark on the computer.

This story is absolutely true and happened only a few months ago. Now I’ve encounted a lot of strange paranormal things in my life but nothing that terrified me like this thing.

It was a typical night, me and my family live in North West WA surrounded by national forests on highway 101 and at the moment we are saving up for a house and live in a huge 5th wheel.

Well as I was saying, it was a typical night, I had the kids to bed by 7pm and me and my husband had gone to bed at 10pm as usual. Well my youngest son had been waking up everynight at 3am for about two weeks and refusing to go back to bed so naturally I was tired.
This night was no different, he woke up and crawled into bed with us laughing and wide awake.
I got up put him back to bed with his brothers but no sooner had I laid down he was babbling and laughing again then began running around in the livingroom.

Hey!
Im a 25 year old girl from Stockholm Sweden! So for a start I want to apologize in forhand if my writing its a bit off. This event took place when i was i Believe 13 or 14 years old. We live in a quiet suburb south off Stockholm, sure crime happend but Most drugs. My Brother that is 6years older then me sadly took that bad turn in life and still are after all this years. The was living in our home at that point for some reasons even if he had hes own Palace to live. So we have a two floor apartment with a livingroom, kitchen and a laundry room with a small toilet on the first floor . The second floor was four bedrooms and our bathroom so you can get a understanding how we live. So my Brother lived in the livingroom att this point cuz its was Only a tamporary stay for him.
So this day i may have had a day off from school or it was some break but i was home alone anyway. I was going to meet up whit a friend but i had a lot of time to spare so i wanted to chill and take a relaxing bath. So i looked the front door put on some loud music and jumpt in. I left the bathroom door open cuz i was alone and was supose to be for almost all day. So i lay back and let my head and ears dive under the surfes and close my eyes and just enjoy that moment a little bit but when i opened my eyes i saw a mans face look right at me, a face i never seen in my life so i froze for a moment and sat up in panic and start cover my self up cuz I had developed fairly quickly for my age so didnt want a stranger to se me all naked. Just when i sat myself up he was fast to take up his badge and try to calm me down .
“Hi am a police man, we are here cuz we found some drugs on youre Brother and want to make sure he dont have any more here in the house”
So in our laws Do they have to have a prosecutor decision and even if they would have it, they just get the look of my wife sleeping in which the living room is. But they had nothing of it. I was still i chock and askt him to hand me the towel that was on the toilet. He gave it to me and lookt at me when i stand to cover me whit it.
And ask
“Can i live?”
He sad “no i have to make sure theres no drugs hidden in here ”
“Okey?” I sad still in panic and chock then he just scanned the rooms whit his eyes a bit and just “it seems to look okey in here”
I thouht that was weird but i had no idea then how it supose to be i was a kid and be was an officer and i really did not want to get any problems.
So I tried to let it be as calm and pleasant as possible when I asked “okey, can i close the door and get dressed then?”
he gave me the creep look and sad
“No, i need to make sure you dont have any drugs in youre clothes”
I panic so har felt my stomick drop !
So i turned my back to him and struggled to put on the clothes with the towel that I tried to cover myself with as much as I could.
Then what he sad to me next almost made my cry of panic and fear !
“You do not need the towel, I have already seen everything you have there under anyway”
I just took my jacket and ran to my friend how was my
neighbor like 3min away and cried all the way there!
My parentes reported him but nothing came off it.. And my Brother got to live for bringing the coops to our home. But i saw him one more time after that, maybe 3-4 weeks after on a Mc Donalds eating whit his two sons i supose, our eyes met and i saw a bit shame in them but i looked away and felt sick.
I hope i never se him once more, cuz if i do i will tell him everything the young me was too afraid of..

Mall shooting

This story takes place in North Carolina in mid July 2018. I started dating my boyfriend that April and we hit it off pretty fast. Unfortunately, we lived 2 hours apart at the time so we only saw each other on weekends. So for one week in July, he took off work for me to go up there and spend a week at his place. I have family who live in his area, so it’s not like I was unfamiliar with the city, but I had only really been there to relatives houses, not really exploring the city. I live in coastal North Carolina (where hurricane Florence hit badly) and since my town is a beach town, we don’t have much to offer aside from the beach, movie theater, and a small 1 story mall that’s on it’s way to closing down because stores come and go like seasons.

My boyfriend, however, lives in a metropolitan city with major universities, world renowned hospitals, several malls, etc. so my week there was very eventful and very fun. On my last full day there, we decided to go to the smaller local mall after going to the huge famous one the day before. This mall has a FYE, which my inner nerd loves, so despite being so small, I was excited. Our plan was to visit the pet store in the mall to see the cats, then walk around killing time before going to a movie later.

We were having a good time and headed towards the food court to use the bathrooms before leaving. The way the mall is designed, there are about four steps you must walk up to enter the food court. Like a platform kind of thing, there is also a wheelchair ramp. We had just entered the food court but were still standing on the steps when this awful alarm started going off. I had no idea what it was until an announcement came on the intercom. The man on the intercom said, “attention! Attention! There is an active firearm in the building! Please exit immediately through the closest exit!” When I heard that, my stomach dropped. You hear about these things (way too much) in America but you never think it will happen to you.

This happened when I must have been about eight years old. One sunny summer afternoon, my parents took my sister and me to a local pub as a reward for our good grades. We went there often. It was a friendly place with a bouncy castle and great staff.

My parents were sitting on the terrace outside and had sent my sister and me in to ask for the bill. We loved doing that because we would always get a sweet from the friendly lady behind the bar. After we had asked for the bill, this woman sitting on a chair at the corner of te bar called us over. She told me she had something for us.

Our parents went everywhere with us and had never really warned us about stranger danger, so my sister and I just naively walked up to the woman. She was probably somewhere in her fifties, with bleached blond hair and heavily made-up eyes. She smelled strongly of smoke and a heavy old lady perfume.

Please forgive my story telling. I’m not good at reflecting hard times of my life, and it was back in 2015. It has helped me grow as a person, and taught me how to read others better. Please let it be a warning to anyone in the hospitality business; Always be alert and aware.

I’ve worked in bars since I was 18, and had been around them since younger because, alcoholic father. That sounds worse than it is. Dad may love his beer, but he can handle it. Unless it’s wine, and some old bangers are playing in the background. Sorry, that’s pretty irrelevant. Point is, I know bars and I know drunks.

I did volunteer work for a bar for a while, from when I was 18, and met a lot of interesting individuals there. I delt with a whole range of characters and it helped me build a lot of experience.

This story is the scariest thing that has ever happened to me. Not because of the way it looked, just how it made me feel. It was that overwhelming sense of paralyzing fear you get when you are in the presence of pure evil that I will always remember. Now please sit back and let me tell you my TRUE paranormal encounter.

I had had a long day at school and wanted more then anything to get to my bed at home and to collapse in it and start my weekend. I got home and of course what I wanted didn’t happen. I had to come home and do chores like my dad wanted and do the huge amount of homework that was given to me by teachers. By the end of the day I was in a bad mood, I was tired and worn out and just wanted to be alone, but of course I have siblings and they wouldn’t let me go to sleep. So of course I got more agitated and I am certain that the way I felt attracted this evil presence.

By the time I got to bed it was late, I can’ t remember which time I fell asleep or passed out but I do remember what happened as clear as day. I woke up around 3:40 ish and I didn’t even realize that I had fallen asleep until my groggy mind started to clear up. My vision went to fuzzy to clear and that’s when I saw IT. For some reason our bedroom door was open and I had a clear view of the hallway and stairs. I saw a black figure coming up the stairs, very slowly. I was so scared I couldn’t move, its like this thing whatever it was casted fear over me. It came to the top of the stairs, and stopped in front of my mothers room which was across the hall. It then made a turn and faced me.

I’m sorry if this is in the wrong category, but labeling them as ‘monster encounters’ didn’t seem right – especially since they weren’t face-to-face encounters. They aren’t abduction stories or stories about losing time, just unexplained sightings, I guess.

I think the first one was with my mom on a road that is often referred to as “River Road”. She was driving me to work – nightshift, so, it was after nine. It seemed like a fairly normal night except it seemed a little dark even with a bright moon – though, it wasn’t a full moon. I don’t know why that stuck with me, but the conversation we were having did not.

We weren’t driving for very long, maybe 10-15 minutes before we seen two big, circular shaped lights seeming to be aimed at the opposite side of the road. We both went silent as we stared ahead, watching the lights and I remember I looked for a source, but I never asked my mom if she did. The skys were clear and there weren’t any buildings around for a search light or anything to be shown from. There weren’t any noises, so it wasn’t a helicopter either.
