Something Awful is Living in these Woods

By William L.

Sorry for any grammar errors, English isn’t my first language. This story comes from myself, and it occurred 2 years ago on a hiking trip with my father. I will also mention I was 16 at the time that this story occurs. Ok so I’ll begin, it was nearing the end of August and my father had decided to take me on a hiking trip into the woods that lay on the edge of our property, this set of forest is quite expansive, and is a nice place for a hike, plenty of hills, small patches of clearing, Etc. So we ride out on our ATVs and pack up to begin the hike, if I remember correctly we got to the trail at around5:00 pm and began walking at 5:20 or around that time.

It was very beautiful, with a crisp breeze here and there. And suddenly we hear a noise, we are about, 20 minutes, into the woods (from where we began) and this noise sounds like it’s coming from around 25-30 feet ahead, it’s LOUD. Like someone dropped a boulder from the top of a tree. I’m naturally a skittish person so I jump immediately upon hearing it. My dad starts laughing at me and asks me what’s wrong I respond with “Dad, Didn’t you hear that?” He doesn’t seem too worried “Yeah, why?” “What was it?” Read more “Something Awful is Living in these Woods”

Something in the Woods

By Liam

For privacy reasons, I will not use my real name, or anyone else involved in the story. The story all started when I was ten. I was camping, with three of my friends, Dan, Ryan and Connor. All three four years older than me, but we did manage our friendship even though the large gap. So, we went up to Tioga County, Pennsylvania to celebrate Dan’s birthday. His father, who we will call Frank, drove us up to one of the campsites. We started to set up our tents, until we heard… rustling in the bushes, which were about five inches away from the campsite. At first we thought it was a coyote or something.

But, that wasn’t the case. Everyone was frozen, not trying to make any noise to startle whatever the hell it was, so I decided to grab my rifle. Which was a Remington Model 700 BDL, that my father gave me before he was deployed in Iraq. I would take about four or five bullets with me, just encase one bullet wasn’t enough….. I would slowly walk towards the bush with my rifle raised at the now, still bush. Ryan, started to to slowly mumble; “Uh… Liam!” He sounded very, very startled as he said it. Afterwards, I saw something… Read more “Something in the Woods”

Walmart Employee Creep

By Anonymous

This story happened just a few months ago at the time I’m typing this.

I had just turned fourteen, I was with my nine year old brother, Steven and my friend, Nathan who was eleven. We were all being the average kids, being incredibly annoying, running down the isles, picking up every insignificant object and asking our parents for it. Yep. That was us.

Nearly Bear Chow

By Brandon

This occurred when I was living with my father at the time. We were living in Ambridge, PA and it was winter during this time I had nightmares almost every night. So one of the cats my father had two would sit on the back of the sofa bed I slept in until I fell asleep. The first time the nightmare was so bad I actually woke my dad up and when the cat jumped up on the back of the sofa bed I passed out and slept soundly. Anyway on the night of the incident the cat had taken up her usual place and I was just about ready to close my eyes.

When she jumped down and walked into the archway that lead into the next room. My dad had purchased a duplex and the way the house is laid out is. When you first enter you walk immediately into the living room. There was an archway separating the living and dining rooms and to the right were the steps to the second floor.
