The following story is true and happened last year during December. Before I begin I’d like to preface the story by saying I am a 16 year old boy who is 6 feet tall, and I am very muscular. It takes a lot to scare me, and whenever I’m out with friends or alone I always have a balisong, aka butterfly knife on me. The ones I own are also brand knives from Bladerunners systems, so they are sturdy and I know I can trust them to work properly if I ever need to use them. I would also like to state that during the story I did not have my phone because I did not want to have anything to distract me. This will be explained later on. On to the story.
I live in an urban part of Memphis, next to a place called the wolf river. It is a popular area for bikers and runners because it has long winding trails that go through a forested area with a river going through the middle. Sometimes I used to go out in the middle of the night and skate along the paved trails, however after this encounter with what I saw last December I don’t think I’ll ever go back there at night.
