So me and my girlfriend were gonna go on a camping trip in a local forest near us.
We freed up our schedules just for this trip.
We had gotten all packed up and ready to go hiking in the woods for 3 days.
We drove for about 30 minutes to get to where we would start hiking.
When we arrived it was about 5 o clock at night and the sun was just starting to set so we didnt go very far until we set up a campsite.
Now remember the woods we were going into were far away from any towns.
As we were setting up camp my girlfriend would say she heard leaves crackling in the distance.
I would tell her it was just an animal and not to worry about anything.
We got a fire going and had drank a few beers before getting in our tent to get some shut eye.
I was just dozing off and suddenly i heard a stick crack i would have to say 15 yards away.
I dismissed it as being an animal and rolled over in my sleeping bag.
My girlfriend was sound asleep so i didnt want to disturb her.
It was only a matter of 5 minutes before i heard a stick break now just a couple feet from my tent.
I didnt want to move not knowing what it was.
The thing making the noise then slowly made its way away from our campsite.
I finally forgot about it and fell asleep.
The next morning i woke up and my girlfriend was already up packing up her stuff to go on another hike.
We packed up our things and started walking.
We were talking and having a good conversation until she asked “Did you hear those noises outside our tent last night”
I told her i did here it but whatever it was, wouldnt be bothering us any longer since we were moving in the oppsoite direction of our campsite.
We stopped and ate lunch at a small creek.
We finished eating and suddenly heard the same noises we had heard last night.
I picked up a rock and threw it in the direction it was coming from and we heard it scurry off quickly.
We stopped to set up camp for the second night.
We started a fire and ate some dinner we had packed.
We finally settled into our tent and we fell asleep.
I woke up in the middle of the night.
I got up to go pee and stopped dead in my tracks.
My heart sank as i saw what looked like a human hunched over by the coals of the fire.
It couldnt have been a human by the way its body was shaped.
I laid back down and sat as still as possible.
I had to have layed there for one hour without moving.
I finally stood up and looked outside.
My heart dropped.
The creature jerked to look at me as i stood up.
I stood still, but i knew it had seen me.
The creature let out a hissing noise that i will never forget.
After it had made the noise it had ran away.
My girlfriend awoke to the horrifying screech of the creature and was now terrified.
I told her to lay down and not to move until the sun rose in the morning.
I somehow fell asleep after what had happened.
We quickly packed up our things and hurried off towards my car.
I started up my car and looked into the woods one last time.
I got chills as i saw the same creature i had seen last night .
I floored it home.
All i know is im never going in those woods again.
