Now I know a lot of people may not believe this but I didn’t know where else to post this. Like anyone who listens to this we’re fans of scary stories. I chose darkness prevails to share this story because I think they do it the best. Anyway, I just never thought this would happen to me.
For some background, I am 18 and my best friend, her brother, and a friend of their families whose is also my friend, my best friend and her other friends moms were all on that trip. We went to Harry Potter World at Universal Studios in LA in early July 2018. Exciting as it was nothing bad happened until we were on our way back. We came back the night of the 2nd day, since it was a 2-day trip, and since we drove there we drove back.
A quick extra fact that is important to add is my parents are shamans, you heard me right shamans, they are not native but they use some of the native’s shamanistic elements. So, growing up with them has made me more open to the supernatural. I’ve also lived in the Nevada desert all my life so I know the wildlife pretty well.
This is where my encounter begins, my best friends mom was in the passenger seat of the car and my other friends mom was driving.
Given it was around 9 o’clock at night and we were all exhausted everyone but me and the moms were asleep. I had just woken up and couldn’t fall back asleep. I was watching the storm outside with bight flashes of lighting and rain. We were in the middle of the desert and whether we were still in California or Nevada I didn’t know.
This was when I noticed a car parked along the side of the road, clearly broken down. The person was checking their trunk for something. The desert nearby was lit up in a whitish glow due to the rain being reflected off the passing car lights that shone into the outskirts of the desert.
When I saw it, it looked like a crouched human with elk antlers and a deer head. I thought maybe it was a wendigo, but I remembered they don’t normally live in the desert.
Plus it wasn’t very big roughly the size of a white tailed deer. It was looking at the pulled over car. Then it went on four legs and looked more deer like. Like full on deer but it also looked like it had an elk antler rack.
Then it turned its head to me and looked at our car, I think it sensed me looking at it . I don’t know.
What I do know is it wasn’t the lightning playing tricks on me because right after that the lighting struck, not before. It seemed as if time slowed down too even if it was only a few seconds. Well, safe to say I called my parents really freaked out, I didn’t know what else to do. Everyone else was asleep and the parents that were awake wouldn’t believe me. I also knew it wasn’t a deer and the only creature that I could think of is a skin walker. So, if your traveling in the California/Nevada desert try not to pull over. Because it’s still out there, I just hope that driver is ok.
