*The Grey Man*
Being a mother is different, I never gave birth to my daughter because I was lesbian, and my wife wanted to adopt someone.
Our eight year old daughter, at the time, was always in need of attention. She wanted one of us to play with her or watch some television with her, being the only parent I decide to give in because well, she’s just too adorable.
My wife, Lexi, had to run out to her job because of someone not turning up, her hours were always all over the place and it usually ran until midnight or even one in the morning.
I started looking for a babysitter which is uncalled for, but work also had me coming in at off hours.
Eventually, I found one person who went by the name of Elissa, she was young probably around early twenties, so I gave her a call and she headed over the next day,
I left for work around five in the afternoon while Elissa was there.
While driving, I noticed something odd. I felt really uneasy leaving the house, of course when you’re a mother it’s normal to feel that way but it’s not when you’ve had this.. gut tingling feeling that something wasn’t right.
I turned back and slowly drove to my house, the window blinds were open and I could see Elissa playing with my daughter, the television was on and they seemed to be having a blast.
Then I saw something that really set me uneven, Lindsey, (my daughter), had stood up and hugged Elissa, and then she sat back down while Elissa went somewhere else in the room, assuming the kitchen perhaps?
So I continued to my work still feeling uneven, I decide to leave early. It was about eight at night when I start heading back, I see this odd light hovering in the sky.
I brushed it off as an airplane or something, but it seemed like it was right near my house.
I pull in the driveway and Lindsey is sitting at the window staring at me smiling, I rush inside and Elissa is gone.
I asked her how long she’s been gone and her response gave me shivers, even to this day.
“She left a few minutes ago, into the light in the sky.”
I quickly rushed back outside but I didn’t see the light I saw earlier, I started panicking and dialed the police.
About a week had past by, it was a Thursday night and we were watching a television show.
Lexi was out as usual and Lindsey was sitting beside me, suddenly she got off the couch and walked to the front door and pointed at it.
I asked her what she was doing and her response.. I still get terrified just by typing this.
Her exact response was, “The grey man wants to come in, he’s at the door, Elissa is with him too!”
I froze for a moment, once I got back to myself I quickly grabbed Lindsey and went upstairs and locked the door, I told her to tell me everything of what she did with Elissa the day she came over, all she said was they played with some barbies and watched some television and ate a snack, then she left.
I dialed the police once more but that’s where it gets much more scary.
On the end of the phone was nothing but static, and a unusual noise. I can’t describe it even if I tried but it made me sick, I hung up the phone and took Lindsey into the closet.
After about ten minutes she opens the closet and walks to the bedroom window, she can’t reach it because she was too little back then but she pointed up at the window and kept jumping.
I snatched her up and pulled her back into the closet, “The grey man wants to come in! He can see you mommy, he just wants to play.”
I started feeling utterly sick at my stomach to where I wanted to puke, I blocked the closet door where no one could open it and we slept there the entire night.
The next day I awake only to find the closet doors had been wide open.
I looked beside me and Lindsey was gone, I started freaking out screaming “No no no!” And ran downstairs, only to find that she was with Lexi having breakfast.
Lexi smiled and laughed saying that she came home to find us sleeping in the closet, as I asked her if anything was in front of the closet she replied back with No.
“The closet doors were already open when I got home.”
I looked to Lindsey and asked if she opened them while I was asleep and she replied with the most horrifying response.
“No mommy, don’t you remember? The Grey man opened the doors with his mind and took us into his ship! We flew around and came back.”
I grabbed my phone and left instantly after that without saying another word, I haven’t been home in a week since then but I finally came to realize.. Grey man, opening doors with his mind is impossible, unless.. he’s not human.
There have been so many alien abductions but this one.. this night was confusing. I don’t remember seeing anything or being on a ship, but Lindsey sure does.
I’ve kept this in my journal for years, she’s now nineteen and she still remembers it like it was yesterday.
To whoever reads this, make sure your house isn’t built near woods or a forest, because they sure do love those areas the most..
