So this happened around two or three months ago. I live in Canada so it was a cold night. My family came in from America recently so the night this happened my family was asleep. I was playing on my phone when my friend texted me asking if I wanted to go to the woods with her. I said yes I will be there in five minutes. It sounds weird, but we enjoyed walking around in the woods, especially after dark.

I got my shoes on and left. My friend was outside waiting on me. We began walking into the woods. Just for some background I am a 13 year old girl and I was never scared of anything the woods really. I never had a reason to be. These woods were right next to my house after all, so I grew up around them. So back to the story – we were walking and fooling around like normal teenagers do. We were beginning to get close to the train tracks when I got a feeling I was being watched but I brushed it off thinking that it was just that feeling of being in the dark.

Then, I heard a loud crunch from beside us.

We looked toward the noise, and there not too far from us was a big pair of red eyes that looked like they were bulging out. It was coming from the nearby bushes. I was so horrified at that moment that I’m shaking now just retelling this story. Both of us stood there frozen in fear. I was looking in the things blood red eyes, then the creature stood up on its hind legs, towering over us at about seven feet tall. It had light grey hair everywhere but it’s face looked canine, but it’s eyes looked eerily human. I mean, even it’s fingers were like a person’s with five inch claws at the tips.

I looked toward my friend in shock as she was no longer there – She had taken off fast, faster than I have ever seen her. I looked back at the thing. It’s lips were curled back in a vicious snarl.

Finally, I pushed myself to run. I knew running from it would only make it chase after me but I just kept running. I looked behind me, and this thing was like three feet behind me. I felt my heart pound painfully in my chest and I ran as fast as I possibly could, my vision going blurry around the edges.

When I finally made it out of the woods, my friend was there actually waiting on me, if you could believe that. She had a look of pure terror on her face. She said I thought you were going to die and we sprinted home. She lived three house’s down closer to the city, and she walked me home. She lived close enough, that, though I offered to walk her home first, she said she’d be fine.

When I got inside I walked up into my room wondering what the hell just happened. I couldn’t really fall asleep, even though I was so tired.

Every little noise kept me up and about an hour later I heard a howl from behind my house. It was loud and way too close. I jumped in fear out of my bed and walked down stairs to my parents room. They were awake asking me if I heard it too.

I said yes.

Now, every so often me and my friend talk about that night and we always think of things that thing could have been. But I can’t help but think about that big, bright full moon that was out on the very same night.
