This is a brief yet unsettling encounter that reminded me just how fucked up absolutely anyone out there could be. As a horror aficionado, I’ve become somewhat desensitized to the countless creepypastas or bad social media or deep web experiences, but this is real. It happened to me this morning.

I had recently come into possession of a new writing desk, and was no longer in need of my old one, despite it being in fairly good condition. I live in a small flat, so getting it gone as soon as possible was a priority space-wise. I decided to list it as ‘free’ in a local Facebook buy and sell groups, where I had made and dealt purchases in the past. Over time though, the group had become somewhat of a community notice board and it was not uncommon to encounter memes and people complaining about public transport, among other irrelevant posts and trolls.

Within minutes of uploading a picture I took from the website where I had originally purchased the desk, as my hallway where the desk was awkwardly placed was not ideal for good scale photos, I had received a comment.
“Hey, how much do you want for this?”, asked a user named Rory.
I was a little confused as I had stated in the post that it was free, but wasn’t too alarmed.
“It’s free, just want it gone”, I replied.
“Could you get a real picture? That one looks fake.”
A little annoyed, but understanding of the request, I went into the hallway to take a half-arsed picture of it. My cat had decided to sit on it so she featured in the photo, so I added the witty comment, “cat not included”, in hopes to convince this guy to take away my unwanted furniture.
“Can’t really tell from the pic. What kinda condition is it in?”.
I sighed. I had described the areas of small wear and tear in the original post. Before I could retort with sarcasm, my co-worker jumped in to save me.
“Dude it’s a free desk, take it or leave it lmao”.
Rory went on to accuse me of being rude to him, and wasting his time. What a useless troll, I thought, and ignored his further comments claiming I was harassing him.

Garage door

This is the story from when my younger sister and I were home alone one day. For some quick background information, we lived in a rural area in New Mexico, just outside a certain small mining town that was named for its silver. Our house sat in the middle of the forest and it wasn’t uncommon to see wildlife there, which will explain my thoughts later on in the story.
At the time I was a 14 year old boy who didn’t like leaving home much, I was, and still am, very much an introvert after all. So, on the day my parents were eager to spend the night at a cabin and enjoy the hotsprings that were about an hour out of town for their anniversary, I made it clear that I’d be staying home instead with my then 12 year old sister. Let me just say that it wasn’t the first time we’d been left alone, after all, we did know how to take care of ourselves by then. Our parents trusted that we wouldn’t do anything stupid and so they packed up and loaded the car happily. We watched them drive away from the front at about 1:00 pm and then continued our day as usual.
It was pretty normal at first, we just confined ourselves to our rooms as usual and entertained ourselves until night came around. I made nice dinner for the two of us then, steak, bread, broccoli, that kind of meal. We were in a great mood, having the house and getting the huge t.v. all to ourselves, it had us excited. We are both massive fans of anime, so we popped in a new dvd that I’d bought to watch on the big screen while we ate dinner. It seemed like the perfect night and we were satisfied.
We sat there for several hours watching our show, it was about 11:00 pm when my sister began to feel uneasy. I told her that she was probably just uncomfortable being home alone without our parents and urged her to just keep watching, but the uneasiness only grew, in her and in myself. It wasn’t long before we heard clicking, not very loud clicking but we did hear it over the t.v. nonetheless. I turned the sound up in response to the annoying sound and we both tried to forget about it. We didn’t last more than half an episode when the sound grew even louder, it was more frantic now and I was irritated. My sister jabbed me in the side and stared at the garage door.
” Someone is trying to break in”
she hissed at me, but I just told her that she was being paranoid, that it was probably just an animal that trapped itself in there and turned the sound up even more. At this point the t.v. was so loud that it would easily be heard from outside, yet the frantic clicking still got louder. Only when the last episode finished and the menu appeared on screen, playing it’s loud title screen music, did I look towards the garage door. The clicking had now become a banging sound and I could see that the handle was turning rapidly. My heart dropped into the pit of my stomach and I gazed in absolute horror at the door. I turned the sound down and the noise was incredibly loud, much louder than I initially thought. My sister remarked a quick “told you so” and began to check the other doors to ensure that they were also locked.
I got off the couch and I instantly felt the harsh vibrations on the floor. I was in utter disbelief, the door was moving back and forth and I could hear the metal of the lock clashing against the door frame. The vibrations were so strong they travled several feet in my direction. I remember thinking that whatever was in the garage had to be massive and maybe not even human because there was no way that that door could be so close to breaking like that. It was quite a few inches thick and there were two steel locks on it. I was so scared of what was on the other side. I made the decision to retreat to my bedroom with all four of our cats and my sister in tow.
I locked my door and called my father immediately. He instructed me to do three things,
1.) Get his revolver from his room
2.)Scream that we were calling police
3.) Let the dog outside and lock the door.

I did as told and retrieved the gun from his room. I then faced the door and yelled; this seemed to do worse, the attempt to get in was only made stronger by my announcement. I backed up and ran to grab the dog. We had a very intimidating dog, a large male dogue debordeaux, weighing well over one hundred pounds, If you’ve seen Turner and Hooch, that’s the dog. I let him out and waited for him to do something, anything; but nothing came from it, he stuck to the other side of the front door, shaking and whining in fear. If the enormous dog was scared then so was I!
I let him in and returned to my room. Our parents had called the police but they would be a while. So we sat in silence on the carpet, waiting for our parents or the police. The noises did eventually halt around 1:00 am and our parents arrived home. I passed out after that and when morning came, I felt sick when I learned something. My father had checked the garage over that day, it was empty of anyone, leaving only a wonky lock as evidence; but that’s not the part that terrified me. The thing that made me petrified was that everything was there. There was no missing items, despite the large quantity of expensive tools and foreign artifacts, the culprit took nothing.
Which means, the thing outside was here for us, and that is something I’ll never forget. I’m not sure if it was a massive person or some kind of monster but whatever it was, it wanted to harm us and I have always checked my doors ever since.

Creepy walk at midnight

Ok so I’m 14 and about a year ago me, and my twin sister decided to go on a walk, but the thing about where we lived it was technically in the middle of absolutely no where, and it’s surrounded by woods, and there are trails for people with four wheeler’s and ATV’s and that kind of thing, but anyways we were walking down a road and the houses had no lights on and so we had to bring a flashlight, as we were walking we ended up at an area that had no houses and were in the middle of the woods, and we decided to go to the path in it,

my sister was up ahead of me and we were almost in the woods, when my sister just stopped, she had gone really pale and was sweating, she instantly turned and ran,

I looked at her in confusion, and then I looked back and I swear to god, I saw something that looked like it was a dog humanoid thing that’s arms were longer than it’s hind legs and it was towering over 6ft tall, as soon as I saw this I turned and bolted I caught up with my sister and we both were running for our lives, the thing is I turned and I swear I saw it running after us, we got past that road, and I could still tell that it was running after us,

Metallic humanoid

To begin with this is not my story but my mother. She was around five years old and lived in a two story house. She didn’t slept by herself, she slept with my other aunts, about five or six; yes my grandma has 11 childrens.

So one day she was playing around in their room when the time to go to sleep came and everyone was getting ready, she got into bed and went to sleep, this was around 8 or 9 pm.

About 2:30 or 3 am she wakes up and because her bed was near the window she could look out and at that time there was a construction being made next to her house, when she looks out from her bed to the outside she sees a gold metallic figure sitting on one of the edges of the construction, she explains the figure like the goldend robot from Star Wars, it was sitting on the edge of one of the walls and when she saw that thing the thing waived at her.

Creepy ex

Alright let me set the tone here and say that I’m gonna be 15 later this year, I play football and track and I’m a good student in the class. I live in a small town in the northern part of Arkansas. This all began several months ago when I was dating my girlfriend and let’s just call her Katie. Katie and I were a close couple and we always were there to support one another. Well before I dated Katie I dated this other girl and let’s just call her Ashley. Me and Ashley dated for almost about a year until I broke up with her. Yes it must’ve been tough and I felt bad but it was for the better. She and I got into several arguments during our relationship and had some trust issues and times where I caught her flirting mad crazy with some other guys and I’m not making it up.
So fast forward me and Katie have been on a good strong solid relationship and like many other people our age we went to the Friday night football games in our town. Most the time we all mainly just hung out and sometimes watch the game. But this one time me and Katie hugged pregame before the game started because we hadn’t seen each other in a couple of days cause of I was sick before and after that we walked together back over to our other friends and suddenly out of the blue I saw Ashley starring down me and Katie and at first I thought maybe she’s looking at someone else or something. I didn’t think to much about it the first time. But once the game started I noticed how then she would try to get closer and closer to me and Katie. But what threw me off was this weird smirk on her face as if she was gonna do something. By the time I realized it I grabbed Katie’s and hand and we walked away and I can remember Katie asking me what’s going on and with the corner of the eye I saw Ashley walking back to her friends in the crowd. Now I didn’t want to creep out Katie and so I told her we should probably get some food before halftime. So she went full on board with the idea. Once she and I returned to our group of friends looking at us. Katie then tugged on my shirt and asked why everyone was starring at us and I thought they were just messing with us, suddenly one of my best friends Selleck walked over to me and asked me did you hear what Ashley said. I replied with a simple no but was starting to worry about the whole situation. Selleck said that Ashley was going to hurt Katie. Now at first I went from worried to a bit confused and concerned about the safety of Katie. I asked why did she say that and all Selleck said was it had something to do with about rumor that I left Ashley for Katie and that Katie’s said bad stuff to her and which I thought was a bunch of bull crap for a bunch of reasons. My ex always had a reputation for being a liar a huge drama queen, also my girlfriend never liked Ashley but she never wanted to be around her either. So that’s when I told Katie we better go before something happens.
The whole problem really got to Katie and she was starting to worry. I had to reassure her that everything would be fine and maybe it’s just a prank. But Katie asked if we could walk home since my house was about half a mile away so in other words it was very close. So be both agreed to it and started to walk home and didn’t tell anyone that we were. But before we even got half way there I heard footsteps behind us and when I turned Ashley lunged at me with a knife in her hand and barely missing me I fell over down a ditch. I yelled for Katie to run and then that’s when Ashley took off and cut Katie’s hand. That pissed me off, Ashley was getting ready to swipe again at Katie and I remember seeing Katie’s eyes wide with fear. I had to act fast so pushed Katie out of the way and ended up stabbed in the side and I remember hitting the concrete laying down looking up at the dark night, thinking to myself and asking god for help as I tried to lift me hand with blood on it. Both Katie and Ashley stood in shock of what happened and Katie ran over to me I remember Katie holding my head on her lap crying. Katie this is all your fault, you have no right to be around him Ashley said. Then she started to approach Katie and with the last bit of strength I had I stool out my leg and tripped Ashley and Katie helped me get to my feet. I said to myself very quietly how am I supposed to save Katie and get away. Then Ashley took another swipe at us and then I grabbed her arm and grabbed the knife out of her hand and said you try to hurt Katie again I swear that’ll be the biggest mistake you ever make. Right then Ashley said whatever I’ll make sure I hurt you both even more next time as she then ran with a creepy grin and left. We walked back to my house I layed down and called my parents about what happened which they were out of town until Tuesday. One of my older brothers that lives close by cane and took me to get fixed up.
About a week later me and Katie we’re lying down watching a movie together and Katie leaned over and just held on and said thanks for being the best. We let out a big sigh and looked back at that night. Ashley somehow only got suspended for a couple of months and is rumored to come back next week. So wish me luck everyone who sees this and if something happens I’ll make sure to have a part two.

held at gunpoint when i was home alone.

This is a long story so i will try my best to keep it short as possible. I am a 21 year old female and this happened to me when i was 15. This is a true story and it was in the news, it happened in Raleigh NC. I was in the bathroom getting ready to take a shower when i heard someone slowly walking up the hardwood stairs with their shoes on. I pictured my brother probably looking at his phone which explains why he would be walking slowly. What i didn’t understand is why he would be walking in the dark. While thinking about this i hear the footsteps stop so I peek my head out of the doorway to see what my brother was doing and ask him about the lights. To my horror a man with a ski mask was standing in the hallway closet peeking his head out to look at me. We surprised each other and both jumped back a bit. I took a couple steps backwards into the bathroom i should have slammed and locked the door but i was in shock. Next thing i know the man walks into the bathroom. He’s wearing all black, he had gloves and a ski mask. He has a gun pointed at me and a metal billy club in his other hand. I’m so freaked out i couldn’t understand what was happening, the only thing i could think of is my brother put on a ski mask and took a fake gun to scare me. Now i want to say my brother would never do that but i think my brain was just trying to come up with a better scenario then what was actually happening. I started saying “jay this isn’t funny” (jay being my brothers name) and after saying that a couple times i saw that the skin below the man’s eyes wasn’t the same as my brothers so even though i was hoping this was my brother, it definitely wasn’t. The moment i realized that this was really happening i started screaming on the top of my lunges. I crouched down by the bathtub and covered my face hoping someone would hear me but no one came to my rescue. After screaming for a couple seconds i heard the guy telling me to shut up or he will hurt me. He starting asking me where our money was. I stood up and he told me to get back down. I said i had some money in my room. He told me to crawl there while he was behind me. He had the gun pressed against the back of my neck. At first i was hoping the gun was fake but i could feel its weight and the cold metal letting me know it was real and probably loaded. So i start crawling to my room and i stopped in the doorway i looked at my bed for a second and felt a new fear because now i wasn’t only afraid for my life but i was also afraid of rape and having to crawl on my hands and knees wasn’t helping. I stand up and walk into my closet, i had a hollowed out book with 22 dollars and small amount of weed in it. I grabbed the cash and thought about offering him the weed as a bonus but i felt too awkward to do so i just put the book back. He looked at me and said “is this it?” sounding pissed off that i would even offer it to him. I didn’t think about it at first but my mom had around 800 dollars stashed downstairs in a spare room. The 22 was just my first instinct. “Oh yes we have a lot more money in the house my mom makes cash for a living, its downstairs” he says fine and we head down stairs and he makes me crawl again. The whole time he is telling me not to try anything and i say i won’t. I started talking a lot, rambling actually. I’m afraid of what’s going to happen after he gets the money because i’m getting the vibe that wasn’t the only thing he wanted but. We start heading downstairs and i’m expecting to see my mom and brother also with guns in their faces. Turns out they weren’t even home and i have no idea when they will return. I didn’t know this at the time be she left to pick him up from work which takes about 15 minutes. This really freaks me out and i realize i’m going to have to stall and hope they come home soon. Like i said i was rambling. I was telling him about my mom’s furniture business and how she stashes money all over the house and moves it around so no one will find it. But i knew exactly where it was. So we start going around the house opening decorative cookie jars and couch cushions. At one point i even got him to look through a bunch of dvds. He starts getting pissed off and we are standing in the downstairs hallway. I’m starting to feel more comfortable around him and i’m not of the floor anymore i’m standing in front of him telling him i don’t know where the money is and she must have moved the hiding spot. I’m debating my next move when we hear a noise. The guy turns his head in the direction of it and i don’t even look to see what it was. I just see him turn his head and i run full speed in the other direction. I’m terrified i might be shot in the back and i book it up the stairs to my room. I lock myself in and call the police.
Turns out the noise was my brother coming in the back door. Once the guy realized i was gone he decided to deal with my brother. He took my brothers wallet which actually had no money but it did have a key to our house. Next thing my mom walks in behind my brother, she was on the phone and knew something seemed weird. The second she saw the guy with the gun and ski mask she closed the door and booked it to our neighbors house. She felt bad leaving my brother but she knew if she entered the house it would be a hostage situation. She hid in the neighbors bushes and called the police, they explained I was already on the phone with them. Now this guy is probably realizing he’s quickly losing control of this situation. He decides to leave maybe to go after my mom or to run away but he couldn’t get the door open. My brother says “let me get that for you” and opens the door for him. The guy leaves and then the police arrived. Everyone was OK but they didn’t catch the guys until two months later. We had already moved back to Michigan by then.
My mom later told me that her and my brother almost stopped to get food on their way home and we are all so thankful that they didn’t. We are much more careful now and i’m so happy everyone was OK.
Follow up on the guys getting caught.
It turned out to be two brothers working together and one of them decided to go solo that night. Two break ins after mine they tied up a husband and tried to rape his wife on their kitchen floor. The husband broke free to stop them, he was shot and is now paralyzed from the waist down. The brothers ended up confessing not only to my break in and that one but many others. They will be behind bars for a long time.
Thank You for reading my story and sorry if there was any errors this is my first time submitting my own story, i love your channel and i will probably submit some more experiences soon!

Demon of Cedar grove

I had been couped up in a hospital for six days, and needed to take a walk in nature. West Virginia has many gorgeous forests to offer, and the ones around my home in Cedar Grove are no exception.
I had never appreciated the outdoors more than I did then. It was brisk and cool. The air was crisp and the leaves bloomed in vibrant autumn colors. I was rather enjoying myself when things took a nasty turn.
The sun began to drop below the trees, darkening the forest and my mood. I took a quick drink of water and began the hike back to my home, when I noticed an erie carving in a tree trunk. It was an eye, but crying or bleeding.
Then I heard an echoing cry ring through the woods. I looked around to see if anyone else heard it but realized I was alone.
At this point the sun was almost out of view and I was quite scared. So I began to jog back at a good speed. The sun got lower and lower and the air got colder and colder. I stopped to pull my sweatshirt out of my backpack, when I felt a warm air against the back of my neck. I froze in terror.
Something was breathing just behind me.
I turned to see a man that was about nine feet tall. His oval head and his face were completely blurred by shadows, but his huge round eyes shone white. A red and black plaid shirt covered his lanky torso. His bony arms rested at his sides.
He cocked his head.
My arm was still in my backpack and my hand tensed around the handle of my flashlight. With a single movement I pulled it out and shone it at the demon.
In the light I saw that it had almost no facial features except the bright eyes that reflected the flashlight.
In a fraction of a second that changed as part of its face ripped open to reveal a jagged and bloody mouth that stretched back to the side of its head.
It feared up and roared in anger at the light. Then turned a transparent white and stuttered out of existence.
Astonished, I ran home. The next morning I found the bloody eye mark carved into the side of my house.
***************************************************************************
I have read many Darkness Prevails submissions have noticed that a few describe the same demonic entity I saw. This confirms that my sighting wasnt simply a lack of sleep or being drowsy from medication. Please comment below what you think this creature should be called. In none of the posted stories is it given a definite name.

A Creepy Experience I Had In Vietnam

I haven’t told my story to many people except for my wife and a few other of my close friends. It happened while I was stationed in the army as a radio operator during the Vietnam war, and I haven’t forgot it to this day. I was a young recruit, freshly drafted out of high school, and didn’t know much about the war. I had no idea what I was getting into or what it all was for, but what I did know was that I had a duty to my fellow servicemen.

We arrived there on a Friday evening and got loaded onto many buses to be taken to our barracks. The air was very humid and the soil was soaking wet due to a storm that had just passed through the area. I vividly remember the drive, and how it stunk like a sewer. My first night was uneventful and quiet, but we all felt the tense atmosphere as our drill sergeants taunted us with stories during basic training. I remember the half moon right over my head, which kept peaking out from over the clouds, and all of us were just sitting around telling jokes. I was more of a technical guy and didn’t have much aptitude for comedy, so I just listened in.

My duty was to manage communications between my unit and all of our other guys so that everyone knew what was going on everywhere else. I carried a box on my back which was the size of radio devices back then, and also a ton more equipment and supplies. I was quickly assigned to a tight knit unit who had just lost their communications operator to a land mine, and I remember the first time we made contact with the enemy. It was the loudest thing I ever heard. We were in a dense part of the jungle and couldn’t see the enemy at all. But we ducked for cover as soon as they began firing at us, and we opened up in their general direction in return. The chaos felt like lasted forever, but we probably ceased fire after a couple of minutes. We advanced forward to close in on the enemy position and secure the area, and it was the first time I ever saw the enemy up close. There they were, three dead Vietcong soldiers laying in a pool of their own blood. I couldn’t believe that I was looking at three human beings that were alive just moments ago. Young guys who maybe had sisters or brothers and parents. They were probably just chilling around moments before we arrived, and here we are moments later looking at their motionless bodies. I must say that I felt justified, because they were the enemy and would’ve been standing over our dead bodies instead.

Staying Overnight In a Hospital

Back story: My grandma has multiple sclerosis, and due to that she can’t move from the shoulders down. She can talk normal and move her head, but thats the extent. She has a fantastic attitude though, and she’s witty and loves to joke. She has 24/7 care, helpers from 8am to 10pm, and she lives with my aunt who cares for her.

One day my mom texts me telling me my grandma is in the hospital with an infection, and they need someone to stay with her overnight. My aunt has 3 kids at home (two of which are 5 & 3) she needs to get ready for school.

My mom at the time had a truck load of personal items because she was moving to a new house my parents recently purchased, so she couldn’t stay. Apparently when my aunt left my grandma in the hospital room with the nurses to take a phone call, they left her and she hadn’t used the restroom yet and no one came back to check on her. So she had to wait in her waste until my aunt came back to the hospital to tell her. Mind you, she can’t move to push a button. So none of us felt that she should be left in the nurses “care”.

A Tap on my Shoulder

Back in 1991 when my husband and I were married about a year and a half, we were laying in bed talking about daily life, our future, etc. He was laying facing his side of the room, which would be a wall and with his back facing me, and I was laying facing my wall with my back facing him, so back-to-back. Anyway, we’re lying in our bed in the dark, and I started talking about sad moments that have happened to me or relatives that I was remembering who have passed away, and my husband would mumble “hmm-hmm,” or “oh, I’m sorry to hear that, hon,” but by now, he’s falling asleep and probably not really listening. After going on for about a good ten minutes, I mentioned something that was really sad that affected me, and I kind of teared up a bit and my voice was cracking and I’m sniffling, and at that moment, I felt several taps on my shoulder thinking my husband reached over and was trying to make me feel better and comfort me. After the taps on my shoulder, I said, “Thanks, Honey – that was nice of you.” My husband said in a groggy voice, “Thank me for what?” I said, “For tapping my shoulder and comforting me.” He waited a few seconds, and said, “What are you talking about? I didn’t tap your shoulder…” I said, “Yes, you did – just now, three times.” He replied, “Sweetie, I never touched you…I’m facing the wall! I haven’t moved since we got into bed!” At that moment, I slowly turned over and saw my husband laying on his side facing the wall, and I’m thinking how I never felt the mattress move IF he had turned over to tap my shoulder…I said again, “Someone just tapped my shoulder three times as if to say “I’m sorry to hear your sad stories.” Again, my husband was emphatic and repeated, “I did not tap your shoulder! I haven’t moved!!” I was freaked out by what just happened…there truly was no way my husband could have physically rolled over without me feeling the bed move – he’s 6’5″, 400 pounds, so I would have DEFINITELY felt him rolling over! This has been an unsolved mystery to me ever since, and I guess that I’ll never know who tapped my shoulder that night way back in 1991.
