Always Uneasy When I Visit

I was born 22 years ago in a small Colorado town an hour’s drive from both Farmington and Durango, just below Mesa Verde and a few miles from Ute Mountain. This was where I spent the first five years of my life before moving to Oklahoma. We still go back every year around summer for about a week or so to see family.

Now, the town being where it was, there was a heavy Native American population there and a reservation about ten miles away. Mostly Ute but a fair amount of Navajo as well. The culture was and still is very entwined into the town’s architecture and local art.


Blind Fear

He was everywhere and I couldn’t see to keep a watch. He would show up at random and unexpected places, times and events. I couldn’t seem to get away from him and by the time I was aware of him, it was too late and there was little I could do about it.

I just moved to a new apartment after losing my job, my house and most of my things. I downgraded from my own 3 bedrooms, 2 stories house to a single bedroom shared in an apartment with 3 other people. Each of us had our own bedroom and bathrooms but shared the Livingroom, kitchen and extra room. I was 27 and am a girl. My other 3 roommates were all about 23 and guys. It was all I could find and let me tell you, I was so past college life but they were right in the mist of it.


Targeted at Target

This happened to me just a few days ago. I am a 23 year-old female with 2 adopted daughters: Alice, age 6 amd Lisa, age 10. One night, Lisa was having a sleepover with some friends and asked if we could go to Target to get some snacks. Target was the nearest grocery store so I decided “what the heck?” I loaded the girls in the car and drove off.

It was not very late at night but there were only a few cars in the parking lot. I assumed they belonged to the employees. We walked inside and headed towards the snack aisle. We walked through Girl’s clothing so I could look at some stuff for my daughters. That’s when I noticed an older-looking man near the girl’s underpants. I thought in my head: “What the hell?” but did not say anything out loud.


Post Office Stalker

I wished to submit my own true scary story for your Scary Strangers and Creepy Stalkers request.  I unfortunately have a terminal case of “nice” thanks to the way I was raised so I do sometimes give people more patience than they need.  I’m not one to make waves unless provoked.  This has sometimes been beneficial to me and a hindrance at other times.

Where I live is a very small town so everyone knows the latest news on everyone else.  I frequently see the same people when running my errands so avoiding someone can be very difficult.


Shadow Thing Under the Bridge

A little backstory before I get into things, back when I was in year 10 of secondary school, our Religious Studies class got taken on a trip to the Holocaust centre, we had to go around writing down any information that might come in handy for our upcoming exams. The trip was actually very interesting, our class even got to sit with a real concentration camp survivor, listening to his story from all those years a go was certainly a very moving experience. At the end of the trip we all got to go and have a quick look in the gift shop, I decided to buy a rubber red wrist band, the kind of thing you might see people who work for charity’s giving out, they usually have the name of the charity or their website on them to help raise awareness for whatever it is they’re raising money for. Anyway this wrist band had the words ‘Genocide- never again’ written on it, I figured it’s a nice, fitting souvenir. I put it on my wrist as we walked out and that was that.

About a year and a half or so later, that red wrist band had never left my wrist, it wasn’t hugely sentimental or anything, I just never really saw the need to take it off, after all it was water proof and I just kind of forgot it was even there. The reason for me telling you about this wrist band will make sense later on.
