My name is Orion Garner, and I was over at my friend Maxwell’s farm. I was over for a sleepover. We were playing video games in Maxwell’s room when his mom came in and told us to close the chicken coop, we complained because it was pitch black outside, somewhere around 10 pm, but we went out anyways because we did not want to look like wusses. Me and Maxwell searched around for the biggest flashlights we could find and went outside.
The road to the chicken coop was a long dirt trail about 50 feet long. Maxwell started playing rap music on his phone to make us more comfortable, but I was still on edge. As we got farther and farther from the porch light, the only light we had was from Maxwell’s phone and our flashlights. When we were about 30 feet away from the chicken coop, I felt like, when I was walking, I was getting farther away from the music that Maxwell was playing. SoI stopped and looked at Maxwell and he was not moving.
I walked back to him and said, “what’s up?” He started turning off the music and whispered, “turn of your light.” Then he pointed into the forest and there were two small reflected lights right next to each other. I did not know what Maxwell thought of it, but I was feeling strange. I was more curious about what the body looked like than afraid. Then the eyes started slowly moving side to side like a snake, only it was too big to be a snake. My brain was working as hard as it could to understand what it was. I could tell it was a large creature or at least taller than a panther or a wolf, but it keep its eyes on us. We could tell that it saw us or at least knew that we were there.
Then my friend told me to run. I was trying to run as fast as I could, I heard myself running but I couldn’t hear anything behind me. I did not look back. Maxwell stopped when we got to the porch steps. Maxwell looked back down the dirt trail, I did not know what he saw but right after he looked he started running up the porch steps saying, “Go go go!”
When we got to the house I looked back and I could see the eyes moving very quick but in a straight line. I did not see the body of the thing but it was too high up to be a dog and too low to be a deer, and it was moving too softly to be anything I know.
I opened the door and rushed inside and closed the door after my friend.We told Maxwell’s parents what happened but they did not believe us, but they were concerned. Anyways, we weren’t going back out there. So, Maxwell’s mom went out on the tractor.
Whatever chased us must have been faster than any person. And it was running too softly to be a deer. It was too tall to be a panther or any kind of cat or dog. For the rest of the night we were on our guard and constantly looking out the windows. Eventually we went to sleep.
