Mysterious creature at firewatch

English is not my first language so please bear with me!

This happened about a week ago and i just have to put it out for people to hear. A little info to set the scene. I live in the northern part of Sweden, on the countryside away from the bigger cities.
I work as a Harvester and Forwarder operator with two collegues, and if you dont know what that is, its big red machines that harvest timber. And when its summer time and the ground is dry, its a big risk that the machines chains and tracks grinds up towards a rock and sparks a fire, so on this day i was working as a fire watch to make sure nothing like that happens. I have an ATV with fire extinguisher and water tanks on the back to put out fires with.
So, the story begins
It was around early noon and my co-workers was driving around and i was standing just observing from a far, to my right is the logging road with all the timber stacked, and to my far left is the newly exposed tree line.
I was just observing the machines when i got the sudden urge to look to my left, but i couldnt see anything, just the trees swaying in the wind, i scanned the treeline intensly but i dont really know why.
Suddenly i spotted something behind a medium sized rock or boulder. It was a tall dark shadow, at first i just thought it was an old rotten tree or something, so i started my atv and proceeded to approach it.
The closer i got the more nervous i got. When i was about 40-50m from this thing i could start to make out shapes, as said before it was tall and dark, maybe 3 meters in height, it appeared to have arms but it was really hard to see, i didnt want to but i felt an urge to aproach it more, and so i did.
I was really scared at this point and just wanted to turn around and get the h*ll out of there. I stared at it intensly for like 1 minute, but it felt like hours, and then suddenly it just shrunk down behind the rock, which made me jump a little. Now i got sceptical thinking it was someone messing with me, so i turned off my atv and started to walk towards it, when i arrived i took slow and quiet steps and started to peer around the rock. But there was nothing there, and this made me very scared because i didnt hear annyone run away and i didnt see any footprints or any disturbance in the vegetation.
So i turned around and ran back to my atv and booked it away fast. I do not know what i saw that day, but it still freaks me out, i told my co-workes but of course they thought i was playing a prank on them.
I can assure you that this was very real, i will not blame you if you don’t belive me. Ive been back there since and havent seen anything else, but i still get the creeps everytime i look towards that specific treeline.

Night Call

This story is not from my point of view, but from my uncle’s, who has shared this story and many like it with over many years.

I guess it is best, I tell you my uncle lived and worked in a rural town in Texas. He worked as a paramedic for 33 years and has many weird stories and experiences. I will share one with you today.

My uncle got a call over the radio from the operator telling him a man was complaining that his heart felt like it was going burst. My uncle and his friend Ronny loaded into the truck and drove for almost an hour at to the location of the caller. Might I add, it was [2:00] in the morning and they drove an hour away from the small town they were stationed at.

When arriving on scene, they realized the place seemed vacant. Bushes and shrubs were overgrown and the house looked like it was rotting away. They got out and shined their flashlights through the broken windows. They were hesitant to go and had ad feelings about the whole situation. Finally, they went in and smelt a decaying smell. Like animal had been rotting away in the house.

Firefighter and His Only Child

My uncle is a registered firefighter with all certificates for everything possible. He always told us that it was hard for him to help save people that couldn’t respond to his voice such as babies but he would save anyone because it was his job. We never thought that this advice would soon about to kill him inside.

This is something sort of a sad story but it includes a very creepy person. Names have been changed because even after five years it still haunts my dreams. I will start off at the birth of my Uncle (lets name him Logan) first child (name is Steve). As teen parents we all knew that it would be rough but with everyone’s help they would make it. Steve was born healthy and his mother stayed the normal amount of time in the hospital after his birth.

After Steve’s birth everything went on as normal but everyone but myself had taken many pictures with him something that I now regret.  The little family Logan, Lilly and,(Steve’s mother) had even had professional pictures done. We are all thankful for the pictures now that we look back. (This is the part of the story that gets sad but introduces the creepy person). Lilly’s mother was a very unhappy person about the fact that her teenage daughter had gotten pregnant. After the baby’s birth she acted as if she was happy but everyone knew she was faking. She hated the child and had even told Lilly that she wished that Lilly told her about sleeping without the condom so she could have got the morning after pill.

The Fire

I am a junior firefighter in Eastern PA, I have been a junior firefighter for year a of now, White apartment cases of 14 people, half of them are juniors. This event took place this last summer.

I was at a Friday night bonfire with the rest of my department, around ten thirty the tones go out for a large brush fire. The rest of the department was not happy to go, but I was, this would be my first brush fire.

We all went to the station, put our gear on, and got in the trucks. I was on the brush truck, a small old Chevy pick up truck with brush gear on it. I was in the passenger seat with my chief driving.

An anonymous call.

An anonymous call

In the early 2000s I was straight out of college with a degree as a firefighter in New York.      I was middle class and needed a decent job to pay my rent, so I chose my college major to work at a fire station. I also had a job as a janitor at a small groceries store so I was making a lot of money compared to what my parents got and was really confident.

Several months in to the job we received a call, I was friends with Stan the operator and could hear the conversation… ” There is a fire.” The voice on the phone sounded oddly neutral compared to most callers. ” Where are you located?” Stan asked. ” 160 Oaten  lane, please help.” The voice sounded slightly more dramatic but was still strange as most callers were screaming or breathing heavily. The line went silent as soon as it was called. Stan put down the phone and tracked the location in a database on his computer, he told the directions and ordered me to drive there immediately because the line stopping instantly is not a good sign. I threw on my vest and thick red fire proof hat. In a rush I slid down the fire pole and bolted into a firetruck with my colleagues.

We sped out of the station and onto the main road, the address was to an abandoned building in queens. I expected that someone had got trapped inside and set off an old wire or knocked over flammable liquids from an old gas tank. After 4 minutes of driving we arrived at the address. Weirdly the building was very quiet and the air smelled clean. Our sirens were blaring quite furiously but I could hear shouting from inside.

Firefighters

My step dad now but at the time this happened he was my dad. Anyway he was a firefighter and I was only 9 years old when this had happened so I didn’t really understand until I was older on why my dad left my mum but I will explain that in the end. But when I did figured out what had happened it disturbed me and still does to this very day.

So my dad was at home and we live in a succoured area but our house is surrounded by woods that goes on forever. Nothing bad usually happened accept a couple break in’s. My dad was at home one night and my family was watching a movie together until my dads working phone went off. You need to remember that the sound of it means that there’s a fire or emergency and even if he had the day off he would still have to go in. He grabbed the phone and as usual he had to come into work because there was an emergency that a cat was stuck on someone’s roof. My dad found this as an odd call for how a cat would even be able to get onto a roof. He got into his old  truck and drove down to the station.

His boss said that they got an emergency call from someone that lived very far away from any  civilization. He felt a bit un easy for he had to go alone because his other work mates were either to busy or made up some excuse to go. My dad didn’t bother to make up an excuse because we really needed the money considering my mum doesn’t work because she had to care of my grandmother who at the time was 93 years old and was almost completely blind.
