Back in the summer of this year(2016), and before I stopped going for my nightly walks/jogs, I was on my regular route and nearing my block. Keep in mind, it was about 10 P.M. or somewhere around there, so the only light I had were porch lights and streetlamps.
I don’t take any hallucinogens, nor am I making this up, and I wasn’t the only one who saw this thing. Another key point for this is the fact that I live in Florida, and this is where this happened. Not only this but I have always been prone to paranormal or monster encounters. Anyway, on to the story.
Like I said, I was out at about ten at night, and I was walking alone before running into two of my friends, whom we’ll just call Jane and Emma.
They had just been to a party and were walking back to Emma’s place for a sleepover, and I agreed to walk them over there since they seemed a little on-edge about being out so late. Some time later we were about five blocks from Emma’s house, and were just laughing and gossiping like teenage girls typically do, when I got this chill down my spine.
The only way I can explain it, was the feeling you might get if you’re being stalked. I told my friends, and they reported the same thing. Like an idiot, I begged them to walk me back to my house since we were a block away at the time.
They agreed, and to this day I regret begging them that. Maybe then, non of this would have happened. Then again, we were all stupid for being out so late in the first place. Anyway, we reached my driveway and were talking and whatnot.
All the sudden, we heard a trash bin fall in the distance, and we all jumped. Jane pointed her flashlight down the street, expecting a raccoon or something. Then again, I’m not sure what she was expecting to see. That’s when we saw something standing in the middle of the street.
The thing’s limbs were far too long for its body, and I’m not sure if it had fur or not. Most of its body was pitch black in appearance, but some of it was exposed bone and vertebrae. Its eyes had no pupils whatsoever, and please don’t get me started on the tail. After at least two minutes of a stare-down between us and the thing, it finally started to scramble towards us like a fucking spider(pardon my language).
Emma screamed for Jane to run, and for me to get back in my house. I’ve seen it multiple times since then, and my friends refuse to talk about it. I’ve also sketched it numerous times, but I still don’t know what exactly it was. A few of my friends dubbed it a wendigo, and others called it a skinwalker.
I’m still not sure what to call it myself. If anyone else has seen something similar or has info on it, please help me out.
