the odd one

To keep the introduction short, I’m Joanna. I am a (now) twenty year old woman striving to become a vet assistant and possibly a vet myself someday. What can I say? I love animals. However.. they have made for some of the most unsettling encounters that I have ever had in my entire life and these are just a handful of them.

I’m going to start this off with one of the stories I remember the most fondly because it is also the one of how I got my beloved cat, Liv. She did not have the best start into life but I believe she is now off rather well with me. I digress.

I live in the country side, a good two hours away from most big cities. Even for a small town we are pretty far out and don’t have a lot going for us, we can speak of luck that we’ve got a big grocery store at all. My cat was a pretty much feral barn cat on a farm not more than fifteen minutes away from my flat – as I said, a very small country side town. Pretty much surrounded by barnyards.

Penny Pincher

So, this is a real-life monster I’ve come across recently, but for the longest time I was too ashamed to share it. Like, “I’ll-pee-in-my-boxers” kind of ashamed, because it frightened me, but others would only laugh. My psychologist tells me I need closure. So, here it goes…

I was at the new One World Trade Center Observatory, up there on the 102nd floor with all the other tourists, getting some fancy skyline pictures for my gym locker. That was when I noticed the radical little machine nearby. You put in an American dollar bill, and out pops a squashed copper penny with an engraving of the World Trade Center pressed into it. Tell me that ain’t psychedelic, man! So, I put in a dollar bill, and out oozed my fresh new penny, still warm with newness.

But wait… a dollar for a PENNY!? What the actual hell!? I mean, don’t get me wrong, undeniably it’s cool – it’s got a giant skyscraper pancaked into it for crying out loud – but that evil machine ate a whole dollar! And it was like an addiction. That penny-pinching monster wanted me to collect all eight WTC souvenir pennies, so in went seven more dollar bills to get the whole collection… of EIGHT PENNIES. Lord send me an angel, I did it. I fed the penny pincher. And the tour guides were just nodding their heads like, “oh yeah baby… we know… we know.” Spine-chilling as I write it.

I think Somethings following me

This is my first time posting a story of my own. I’ve listened to everyone else’s on here and felt as if I should share mine. I live in Idaho, I’m not gonna say where exactly but it’s decently populated. My name is Madii I’m 17 year old female, and this happened to me last winter. Me and some old friends usually would stay at my house and hang out over the long weekends or during breaks we had because of the weather. My room was pretty big and was in the basement so we would always be down there cause I had four younger siblings so it got pretty noisy with all them around. One night me and a good friend were having a sleepover, it was about 1:30 to 2 am. We were listening to scary stories and doing everything we could to scare ourselves and get the adrenaline pumping. We were bored high school kids what else were we to do, anyway; we decided to sneak out since it had stopped snowing and message a few friends to see who was awake. No one was, but I wasn’t surprised. As we were walking around my friend started to tell me about how about a week ago from this incident she was playing with some crystals and satanic things. We had a friend who was pretty into that kind of stuff and witchcraft. They also had a Ouji board and were trying to communicate with someone, or something. I immediately told her she shouldn’t have done that, I’m a pretty paranoid person, even though I like to be scared, I always set boundaries and told her that a ouji board is crossing it. Shes Native American so there’s quite a bit she believes in and doesn’t believe in. She’s taught me about some things, like skin walkers and wendigos. Now those I believe in and absolutely terrify me. She mentioned about how in the reservation theres always sitings and stories of those who have seen or delt with them. A few weeks after her telling me this I was laying on the couch in the upstairs sometime in the am. Probably close to 3 or 4, just watching some Netflix I decided to head to bed after finishing a whole season of a show I’d been watching. As I was walking towards the stares I noticed a dark misshapen figure standing near it. Note this window was a good 5 feet off the ground and this thing was 4 more feet above it. I froze and stared trying to see if I was just seeing things and to let my eyes adjust. But then I opened the gate at the top of the stairs and walked down slowly still watching out the window. It turned and even though I didn’t see any specific features but I felt it’s eyes starring directly at me. I then ran down the rest of the stairs and hid in my room. I had heard heavy footsteps outside walking around the backside of the house where my room was. It smelled horrible like walking into a dump full of dead skunks and fish. I then remembered the story that my friend had told me about how if you talk about these creatures too often you might start seeing things. I cried quietly trying not to let it hear me, after passing out from holding still for so long I woke up to my parents yelling outside. Something had killed all our chickens ducks and turkeys along with one of our cats, our horse was out in the field hiding and obviously startled from something. Now I don’t talk about these things at all, I never go outside alone when it’s dark or in areas I know nothing about.

The Children From The Playground

What you’re about to read is my personal account of a series of events that unfolded about 3 months ago. Since then, I have told my story to some relatives and close friends. To my surprise, a few of my friends and family have either heard stories like this before, or even experienced the strange things that happened to me and my wife. Since the original event, I’ve tried to ignore what happened to us and move on with my life. However, as of a few days prior to the time of writing this, I’ve experienced something that tells me this isn’t over. Today I want to share my story with others so that they are aware of what is happening and not ignorant of that fact that there are many of these unexplainable and unspeakable, yet real and prevalent occurrences in our world today. I must also admit, I may have caused all of this to happen to me.
About 3 months ago: My wife, who I will refer to as Sara, and I love running and used to take evening runs almost everyday after work. Our neighborhood has many winding streets, cul de sacs, and small parks spotted throughout. This set up makes it perfect for taking our runs since there isn’t much traffic, and mostly families with children live in the area.

One particular evening started out like any normal night of ours. We started our run along the same route as always. About half-way through our route we run past a playground that’s generally empty due to being built in flood zone, so when it rains it’s either flooded or very wet and dirty. Except this evening I noticed from the distance several people at the playground. As we ran along the sidewalk approaching the playground on our left I saw two children in jackets sitting on a bench close to the sidewalk, and one very tall man (or woman, I could never tell) standing in the playground area and looking down, possibly at a cell phone. What was very strange was that the man was standing extremely still the entire time he was in my view. When we got a little closer I kept staring subtly to the side and noticed the tall man was not holding anything, but his arms were at his side had they were disproportionate looking arms, like very long, almost past his knees. Sara was running a little ahead of me and I caught up with her and asked if she saw what was going on. She agreed that the tall man looked weird and how the children looked strange just sitting silently on the bench. I glanced back one more time and one of the kids was looking in my direction. Now at this point we were farther away, but I swear when I looked at that kid’s face it was slightly lit up by the dim street light, but his eyes, they were completely darkened. I felt a really weird sense of dread and turned around and kept running.

I didn’t want to freak Sara out or make her seem like I was weird for feeling afraid of a child, but I told her what I saw and we chatted a little about the whole strangeness of that situation.Fast forward to later that night. About 10:30 p.m. Sara and I are sitting around in our living room on our phones just winding down before bed. We get a knock on the door. We both start frantically moving around since it caught off guard having been so late and I told her I’d go to the door. I look through the blind of our front window, next to the front door, and see some kid. I told her it looked like a kid and she said I should see what he needs in case he needs help. I crack the door slightly and lean out the front door and staring up at me is this kid with completely blackened eyes and before I could speak he says to me, “He told me to collect you, can I please come in?” It’s so hard to explain, but this feeling of dread once again came to me, and I’m not a very religious person but I felt like something spiritual was affecting me while standing in front of that kid. I told this kid, “I am sorry but we cannot help”. All I got back in response was stare, and then he turned around and walked away. I closed the door and almost felt bad, but this feeling I had was extremely unnerving put me in a terrible mood the rest of the night. What kid gets lost, finds help, and then asks for dinner? At 10:30 at night… As soon as I closed the door I went to the window and peered through the blinds. I saw the child walking away and when I looked a little ahead of him, I saw a tall figure on the opposite side of our street standing in the shadow of a tree. I told Sara about what happened. She was mad at first that I turned away a child at 10:30 p.m. and ignored my claim about his eyes, but then later that night I woke up completely sweating and had the urge to tell Sara to turn on the lights. I don’t know why but I couldn’t move and I needed her to turn on the lights. Freaked out a little, she jumped out and went to turn on the lights. I started to calm down a little and could get up out of bed. She said as she turned on the lights she thought she saw two shadows quickly move past our window. We both stayed up for the rest of the night and she started to believe me that something was going on.

Something in the woods

It was last spring; my boyfriend and I went to my cabin alone. It’s in a small town in Minnesota out in the middle of no where. The closest neighbor was about 4 or 5 miles away. Anyway it was our second night there and my boyfriend, let’s call him T, was making dinner for us. I was trying to set up the DVD player so we could watch some movies. while I was doing that T dropped the bowl and was frozen starring out the window. He looked at me the most scared look I have ever seen him and he told me to come look outside. I looked outside and I froze also. There was this thing outside like 15 feet away from the cabin. The best I can describe what this thing looked like is a skinny sick bear that had no fur on it but I knew deep down it wasn’t a bear. It stood up on its 2 legs and it was about 8 feet tall. It made this horrible scream that made me cover my ears then it quickly snapped its neck to look at T and I. That’s when I backed up and grabbed my hand gun just Incase. For like 5 minutes it was starring at us and it freaking smiled at us and there was many teeth that looked really sharp. It screamed again and ran into the woods. T and I just looked at each other shocked and we quickly packed and we were leaving in the morning because it scared us so much. We went to bed around 11:30 and tried to sleep that night. We both had our hand guns next to us just Incase. While we were sleeping we woke up to scratching on the cabin outside it was about 4 in the morning. I screamed “get the hell away from us” we heard this creepy scary laugh and it just went silent. We went to sleep again. In the morning with the sunlight T and I went outside and around the cabin was bloodly claw marks and our car was scratched up. We quickly packed and got the hell out of there. While we were driving down the drive way I looked back and I saw the thing on the roof of the cabin smiling and it waved. I have not been back there yet and my uncle that owns the cabin has saw it too. There is now traps all over the place and now guns all over the cabin. I am never going back there again even with more safety. Never.

Skin Walker at The Lake

This story takes place in the summer of 2018. It was late at night and me and my friend ,Matthew, we’re swimming at the lake. Now I am a rather large guy for my age ,I’m fifteen and I’m about six foot five and Matthew is sixteen and is about six foot two.
I was swimming for about an hour before I had to use the bathroom so I took my flashlight and headed toward the community bathrooms. The bathroom are always open on the account that the path by the lake was commonly jogged at night but not tonight. I brushed it off as we were here later than we had been before.
After doing my business I started to head back but I saw something in the path. Me ,thinking it was Matthew, yelled out “ Hey Matthew over here”. I walked closer but I stopped dead in my tracks when I heard in a voice almost identical to mine say “ Hey Matthew over here”. It sounded like whatever this thing was it was trying to mimic me. I shined my light in its direction and I saw a large bone thin figure with long arms and a deer head well almost a deer head ,it looked off. It said again “ Hey Matthew over here”.
I stood there for what felt like hours but could have only been two minutes before I heard Matthew from behind me. I looked back at the thing and saw it bolt for the woods which was about 60 feet away but whatever it was made it in about two seconds. I felt a hand on my shoulder and turn around to see Matthew. He asked why was I so pain and shacken. He told me that he heard me call his name three times but I had only said it once. After I got home I looked up what I had seen and the only thing that matches the thing was a skin walker. I still go to that lake with Matthew and other at night but I always carry my gun with me just in case.

All of this happened around 13 years ago, when I was a 14 year old girl. I lived with my father in a two bedroom apartment, which had a tiny closet that could fit around 3 teenagers if we sit tightly enough. That closet will be important later on..

I had two best friends, I’ll call them Jenny and Anna because our actual finnish names are a bit hard for foreigners. We had this great idea to try an ouija board after listening to another story from my dad, which had people going crazy after tampering with the board. My dad works as a nurse in a mental asylum, and he always told us stories about his patients.

One night, when he was working an all nighter, we decided it was time to try the board. Me being the artistic one, was assigned to draw the board. I have always been interested in the occult and read a lot, so I thought I knew what I was doing. I did not.

My Father’s Ghost

I don’t remember the first time my dad told me this story, but I do know that since then, I have believed in the supernatural.
My dad grew up in Texas, he lived in the tiny unheard of town of Crane. He lived with his mom, and slightly older brother in a tiny trailer house. It all started when my dad started hearing footsteps in his house when no one was home. At first he thought it was just his imagination.
But then, he and his brother where outside one day, while their mom was away, and they both heard the footsteps. My dad recalls that they were deliberate, and clearly footsteps.
The creepiest time was when my dad and his mom had just gotten home from the grocery store. It was nighttime. His brother and was the only one home. My dad and his mom began pulling groceries out of the car, and my dad looked up to see a face staring at him through the window of the house. He thought it was his brother, and expected him to come out and help. He never did.
Annoyed but not thinking much of it, my dad carried the groceries to the door. He thought that his brother would at least open the door for him, but he never did. So his mom angrily opened the door and searched the house for my uncle, planning to scold him for his laziness. They found him fast asleep in his bed.
So who was it my dad saw? He says that it was certainly a face he was in the window. He recalls facial features. But no one else was home at the time, and the house was much too small for a human being to hide undetected in for long. My dad and I believe that it was a ghost.

The lost tribe

Let’s begin by stating that what is
contained is amazing, and the most heart pounding moment of my life.

I work for a state agency, you don’t get paid overtime but instead you get comp time… basically you work 10 hours over time you get 15 hours comp which is just PTO. But this affords me the opportunity to take off for a week randomly and not take my wife or kids with me. Because I have hundreds of comp hours.

But instead of being adulterous lech, I instead pick a GPS location on Google Earth, hike in, and take only water and MREs…as to not even make a fire because I really don’t want to be found. Now I do make a weigh point map of GPS locations set up an automatic email to 6 people if I am not there to stop the email it auto sends with my itinerary, passwords, legal documents, and an explanation of why I do this…I do love my family…

So I set my mind on Rocky mountain national Park, I grew up in Colorado and went there for outdoor lab so I decided to go out there. When I go I pack reasonably, I take my .357 s&w, a .22 henry survival, and my Remington .308 it basically keeps me ready for most situations. I don’t need to hunt because I take MREs, it’s so I don’t create smoke or fire, water purification tabs, my Bible, a pup tent, a thermal blanket, bed roll, gps, and my sketch pad and my old timer pocket knife and a random bush knife…I like to try new ones…but I digress.

Haunted house and unknown creatures – Duplicate

This has happened between September of 2017 and January of this year. I live in a small suburb of a big town in Minnesota. Now, our neighborhood isn’t that bad but the part of town we live near isn’t that good, but it’s not as bad as other areas of town. As some context, I also live in a very paranormal active house. My dad has seen black figures in the basement, and heard footsteps upstairs when he was down stairs.

My mom has seen silhouettes of disfigured entities in the window when she was outside, but we contained these things in the basement using a salt line. The sad thing is that my band room is down stairs so, if my band has practice or I want to play my drums, I have to go down there. I put a salt line in front of the door for the room hoping to keep anything out but I still see things outside of the room so I usually shut the door so I can keep my happy place, my happy place.

Now, this is where some of my scariest parts of my life have happened. There are two things that me and my friends have seen.
