This all happened around a month ago, in December of 2017. A while ago I posted about my encounter with a strange pale creature in the woods behind my mom’s house. I had prayed i would never see this creature again, but I have and I am begining to belive my initial belief that it was a rake-like creature was dead wrong.
It was early December and I was staying at my mom’s for awhile. It was about 10 pm when I decided to go to the gas station a few blocks away. There is a small forest behind my mother’s house, and I decided to cut through the path in the woods that would make the trip much quicker.
The whole time I was walking, I felt like I was being watched. The woods were dead silent, the only noise being my feet crunching the leaves. Apart from the uneasy feeling, I got to the gas station alright. I bought a six pack of beer and trecked back through the woods.
About half way there, I stumbled upon a strange sight. Laying on the ground has a small mass that certainly wasn’t there before. I shone my phone on it and it was a dead groundhog. The odd thing was there was no blood anywhere. At first, i didn’t see any sign of what killed it, until I noticed two holes in its neck.
As if on cue, I was hit with a foul odor that nearly overwhelmed me. And just like a horror movie, I heard a twig snap behind me. I spun around to see what it was, and God I wish I hadnt.
Standing there was a being, about 5 or 6 feet tall. It was deathly thin and pale. In its hand was other mass of fur, i assume it was another groundhog. It’s most striking feature were it’s glowing, orange eyes. For some reason, although I wanted to flee, i found myself unable to move.
A crooked, thin smile was etched across it’s face. And then it spoke. Oh god, how it spoke. I cannot explain how it spoke. It spoke like an alien trying to mimic human speech.
“Hello” it said in a truly ungodly voice. It dropped the groundhog and took a single step towards me. “Come here”
What happend next is what rocked me to my core. Huge, leathery wing appeared from out of its back. I don’t know how I didn’t see them before but they were massive, about 15 feet across by my estimate. It was like the Creeper from Jeepers Creepers, it’s wings must have been able somehow grow in or out of its body.
I managed to snap out of my trance and chucked a beer at it and ran home as fast as I could. I heard faint flapping noise behind me, which I can only assume was the creature flying after me, though I didn’t dare look back. As soon as I got in the door, I tripped over the steps and dropped the beers I somehow cared enough about to keep on to. I locked every door and window in the house and stayed up all night. My mom and sister looked at me like I was insane, but I know without a shadow of a doubt that what I saw was real.
The next morning, I went back to the woods. Around where I saw the creature were dead animals; rabbits, birds, squirells, and groundhogs. Just like the night before, there wasn’t a drop of blood anywhere. I can say with certainty that the creature had killed them. I don’t know what it was that I saw. It’s shape and proportions would suggest a gargoyle-like creature, but one with vampiric tastes. I will never go back into those woods again, period. People always say monsters are myths, after what I saw, I can say it’s not myth, it’s a fact that beasts lurk in the shadows.
