I saw a skin walker in the desert

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.

Next Time, Just Drive.

I’d like to begin this story by advising anyone listening, especially other women, to not be afraid to go absolutely batshit insane if you feel threatened by someone. Scream, make a scene if others are around, try to out-crazy whoever is intimidating you. Do not be compliant. This is a lesson I took away from this encounter and many frequent albeit less severe ones throughout the year and a half that I worked in a certain large city in California.

I live in a smaller town about an hour away from the city, which prompted many of my friends to question my sanity at the prospect of commuting two hours or more round trip every work day for an entry-level job. At twenty-one years old at the time of this story, there was hardly a shortage of jobs closer to home. I was never bothered by it, however. The pay was good, and it was for a cause that is very important to me. There was a public transit system that conveniently went from a station a few miles from my house to one about a block away from my work, which I happily took over driving through dense, hostile traffic and the nightmare known as parking a car in the city. Additionally, the rides provided a lovely opportunity to catch up on reading and discover new music.

So, on a night like any other, I was on my way home via the transit system. I had selected the least stained corner seat I could find in an otherwise nearly empty train car, and took out my book and a glass bottle of Coke to prepare for some well-earned relaxation. I stared off into space for some time before a man walked into the train car. I remember that he was wearing a green denim jacket and baggy tan cargo shorts. He also sported steel toe work boots that vibrated the hollow floor of the train as he walked. His hair was spiked in a peculiar way; it didn’t so much look like he had gelled it as much as it seemed he had styled it by standing in a wind tunnel. Overall, he looked a little scraggly but far from homeless or too off-putting.

After surveying the numerous empty seats available, he came over to where I was sitting and asked if he could sit next to me. I had only been working at that job for a month or so, and being the naively trusting girl from an upper-middle class town that I was, I had not developed my street smarts yet by a wide margin. Like an idiot, I said yes. He sat down beside me, and I returned to my book. I could feel his eyes on me, but I pretended not to notice.

“What are you reading?” he asked, craning his neck to look down at the pages.

I briefly described the book to him before pointedly clearing my throat and returning to the story. In the periphery of my vision, I saw him smile.

“You’re very beautiful, you know.”

This set me a bit on edge, but it was not the first time a stranger had flirted with me during commute. Some people just can’t grasp the fact that women don’t go on public transit just so random guys can hit on them.

I rolled my eyes internally and gave him a generic thank you. “Sorry,” I said. “I’m not really up for talking, I’m really wrapped up in this book.”

What the man said next chilled me to my core.

“Why don’t you come home with me so I can wrap you up in something else?”

Only then did I realize how dire my situation was. The train car was still barely had anyone else in it and I had stupidly picked a seat on the innermost column, making it impossible to get out of the row without either sliding past the creep or vaulting over the seat in front of me. I didn’t want to make a scene for fear of aggravating him. I had played myself. I glanced over at the man and noticed for the first time that his eyes were huge. Massive. Bloodshot to hell. They pierced me intently, and his stare alone violated me to my bones.

Despite my seating predicament, this should have been the time where I got off on the next station, stayed in a crowded area and waited for the next train home. Unfortunately, I didn’t think of this at the time. Instead, I tried to keep my cool and played it off casually. “Sorry, but this shift wore me out. I think I’m just gonna go home and get to sleep.”

The surprises never ended with this charmer as he produced a burnt phial full of white powder from his sleeve. Crystal meth. I’d never seen it in real life before, but I knew it at a glance.

“This will wake you right up,” he claimed, shaking it lightly. “Now, do you want to come home with me and make some money?” I felt my face almost seize up in shock, but I stopped myself. I wouldn’t allow him the satisfaction of having rattled me. I calmly and politely declined, which he returned by going at great lengths to describe what he wanted to do to me. Again, I should have gotten off of the train, but I was an innocent little cinnamon roll who had only ever heard stories about this sort of thing happening. I had no idea what to do.

When the train finally pulled up to my stop, I put my book back in my purse and grabbed the bottle of Coke. “Well, this is me,” I said hastily, standing and leaping over the seat in front of me. After all of this, the last thing I wanted was to turn my back to this creep. I was horrified but not exactly surprised when he stood and said, “what do you know, this is my stop too!”

Without another word, I speed-walked to the front of the station, but I could hear him keeping pace with me as his heavy boots clinked against the tile floor. I exited the turnstile and began to go at a brisk jog, morbidly curious to find out if he would continue to keep up. Unsurprisingly, he did. He wasn’t going to stop until he had me. Something snapped in me, and it was then that I did what I should have done to begin with. I caused a scene. I out-crazy’d him. I took the glass bottle of Coke by the neck and swung it against a nearby wall, shattering it and creating a makeshift weapon. I began to scream, “Do you want to fucking die, you raping piece of shit?” That was enough to catch the attention of everyone in the station. The man was taken aback, shocked by the sudden outburst from the woman he previously perceived as submissive. “Everyone in the station, may I have your attention please!” I continued to shout, holding the broken bottle out in his direction. “This sack of shit right here tried to sell me meth. He offered to buy my body and when I refused, he made sexual threats and started following me. This man was going to rape me if he had his way, so will someone please call the police?”

The creep was aghast. He took a moment to process what had happened before making a break for it. I considered chasing him, but figured it would only lead to more danger. Besides, even if that wasn’t the case, I quickly discovered that my legs had turned to jelly. I shakily took a seat and cried until the police came. They took my statement, but as far as I know they never caught the bastard. This was not the last time I was harassed on my commute, but I had to learn my street smarts pretty quickly that night and as a result I never allowed it to escalate to that point again. I’m telling this story now in hopes that whoever hears it will take my advice; if someone is making you feel threatened in a public setting, scream your goddamn lungs out.

Thank you for reading, Darkness Prevails! I’ve got a Creepypasta narration channel of my own that I recently started up, and if you’re interested I’d love to collaborate with you. That may seem bold, but despite me being new to the scene I’m pretty confident in my abilities. Below is a link to my YouTube channel. You can contact me at evieeldritch@gmail.com Thanks again!

The cat that spoke

I was 12 years old when this took place. I live in the Houston Texas area and I loved the paranormal until this happened. My Papa and I was going to a real hotel that was supposedly haunted in liberty texas.

The lady who owned the hotel said we would be the only people in so we could expirence it alone. Take to mind this was 4 years ago and I don’t know every exact detail. Anyways when we got to the hotel we met up with the lady who owned the place and we showed us our room we were going to be renting. We went to the room and unpacked the bags and got into bed after setting up a camcorder watching the door. I was almost asleep when I heard a meow.

Yes a meow in the hotel.

I was kind of stardled by this since it’s not a pet friendly hotel. So I woke my Papa up and told him about the meow so we took the camcorder and went outside the room. I remeber looking under the doors and seeing shadows under every single room.

But she told us no one else would be here.

Anyways we shook it off as maybe staff or cleaning lady’s cleaning the rooms. We went to the main office and told the lady and she said that there for sure aren’t supposed to be anyone else but us at the hotel that night.

Right as she finished her sentence a full black cat walked in the hotel from the main door which was open because the lady was outside smoking. We started recording the cat and it meowed and we didn’t think anything of it so I reached down and pet it. We left the next morning and went home to review the tapes we recorded.

What I saw when I skipped to the cat part will forever frighten me. The cat walked in and when it meowed I heard the most chilling ghost like voice say “get out.”

I still have the recording today and if I can find it I will send it in somehow.

That was not a deer

I will start off this story with saying that these events happened due to something me and my friends did in the church, I cannot say the exact thing we did but let me assure you, it wasn’t good. Ok on to the story, I am from San Antonio, Texas and I am one out of four children, born of my mother, that have all been baptized. We moved recently from Victoria, Texas and we got transferred to a new church, I will not reveal the church name, but it is in the central part of San Antonio. The church was one of the biggest churches I’ve ever seen and one of the oldest too.

It has been built in the 1700’s. On an early Sunday morning, I,in my groggy state,started to get dressed.

We were about half a mile away from the church so we walked to church and I usually leave 30 minuets before everyone else.

I began walking down the old stretch of pebbles and rocky road, and there was a light shadow brought by the trees that peered down on the road. I am a very vigilant person, so If you were sneaking up on me, I would know you were, I got the sense that someone was watching me, now there was deer out where I lived and there were also wolves, it seemed like one of them howled right in my ear, I got dizzy and tried not to get my clothes dirty because my mom wouldn’t like me walking into church with a big mud stain on my shirt.

I scrambled over to one of the few trees in the empty lots along the road leading to the church.

Once I got my thoughts together I saw a man standing in the distance, he looked as if he was walking towards me relived to see another human being, “Maybe he can give me a ride” I said.

I know the whole “don’t talk to strangers thing” but it was better than walking down this creepy road, but then he got closer and I knew then, at that exact moment, he wasn’t a person. The thing stood at at least 7 foot tall when it stood on two feet, bright neon green colored eyes, and…. at least an 11 point set of antlers.

Suddenly I heard that same howl that sounded like wolves but it was coming from this creature’s mouth.

I ran the quarter mile back to my house, because I only walked halfway, my parents were about to walk down, and then I bashed the door in breaking the lock with all 125 pounds of me. My parents asked me what’s wrong, I didn’t answer, all I did was look outside the window to the creature and those bright green eyes, then the creature howled one last time, that was my chance,”Mom, dad, did you hear that?” And when my parents answered, it horrified me, “honey are you ok” and then I looked at my mom’s eyes, and they were a shade of bright green.
