My name is Mark and I´m 14 years old. I´ve always been that kind of scared guy so calling me coward or something like that doesn´t really do me much. I lived in a town called shivarp in the good old sweden.
My family is not the biggest one, My dad, mom and me is the only ones. Shivarp was a good and calm little town and there wasn´t really anything to be afraid of. However in the summer of 2013 they said in the newspaper that several people have reported hearing strange noises coming from the sewers. Not too far away from my home there was a small lake called lake ochitana.
Close to that lake was a big hole built into a small hill that lead to the sewers. The lake was calm and very warm so seeing people coming down for a swim is not that rare.
It was said that a lot of kids who had gone close to the hole said that they could hear loud roars and animal like screams coming from the dark sewers. Since the day when the sounds were first reported many people wanted to explore the place.
However one man that had actually entered the sewers had disapeard and was never found. So the police set up blockades, not allowing anyone to enter the sewers. However one night when i was searching for some scary stories on my computer my phone rang.
I picked it up and answered with a “yes”. It was my friend, let´s just call him Omar.
He was saying things about that the police had for reason left the sewers. He told me that he was planning to go and explore the sewers to see if he could find something for his collection. I first told him not to because I was afraid that whatever was lurking in the sewers was going to take him.
He told me that there was probably nothing to be scared of and that the ones hearing the sounds just may have heared the sounds of a bear or a deer that had entered the sewers looking for food or something. There were a lot of forests sourranding the hole and the lake that was full of these animals and they often came down to the lake to drink of the fresh water.
However they were all scared of people so they were nothing to run away from.
Omar told me that I should come with him to make it more fun. I agreed to come although i didn´t really want to beacause of how scared i was. I took my shoes and a flashlight and we met outside my house. We began to walk and after about 30 minutes we were there. The hole was now in front of us and we pointed our glowing flashlights to the dark hole. We soon went inside the hole and walked slowly through the sewers.
We looked at the walls that were filled with clawmarks,
They didn´t look like that of a bear.
They were more like that of an alligator. The walls were also filled with blood and handmarks which made me and Omar freeze. We realized that something terrible must have happened. Then we heard it, A loud growl that came from right in front of us.
We looked in front of us and saw two eyes. they were completely red and as that thing came closer we could see a snout that resebled that of an alligator and a gigantic mouth with knife like teeth. As the creature came closer and closer we began to see that it had a human like body.
It´s arms and legs looked huge muscular and it had a rat like tail. The creature was now only about 3 feet from us and we began to slowly back away.
That´s when the creature led out a loud dinosaur like roar but didn´t come after us. It just stood there starring at us. As we were almost out of the sewers the creature began to slowly back away as well until it´s red glowing eyes disapeard into the darkness. We ran the rest of the way home.
after that day I listened to the news and they said that the police had found something horrible in the sewers. Not to far away from the hole that lead to the sewers they found a big but empty room, Well not completely empty. in one of the corners they found a big pile of bloody clothes that had been ripped to smaller peaces.
These clothes were about the same size of my clothes wich made my legs freeze into the ground and I realized that if that thing had wanted to take us alive we would not be alive by now.
However the monster was never found and the searching stopped after 2 days.
