Hello, my name is Noah and I’m 17. Her is a little bit about myself before I tell the story. I have two younger siblings, a brother Josh and a sister Christa, they are both 14. My mother is a very kind woman always helping other members of my family when they needed it. My father passed away when I was 10, he always had a way of making any situation a good one. Finally theirs my moms brother, my uncle Jesse, he was living with us because he had lost his arm a year before. this story may sound crazy but I swear on my life this happened. I have a scar to prove it but I will explain later in the story. This happened to me and my family when we were on vacation to the UK.
We had been driving to a small town in the UK countryside it was about a five hour drive. There were five of us in the car. Myself, my two younger siblings, my mom and uncle. Both Josh and Christa were asleep, my mom was driving while my uncle Jesse and myself were talking about what our plans were.
We had rented a cottage by a lake for two weeks. After about ten more minutes of driving we arrived at the cottage. My mother got out and went to wake up Josh and Christa while uncle Jesse went to unlock the door. ” Mom I’m going to take a walk ” I said climbing out of the car. My mom responded with an “OK just don’t wonder off.”
The cottage was laid out like this: Out front was a deep forest that stretched around till it reached the back of the cottage then it opened up to reveal a beautiful lake. If you stood on the shore you could see other cottages around the lake.
I started walking about twenty meters into the forest when I saw claw marks on some trees they looked like they could have been from a bear except they were about as long as my entire arm and they wrapped around the whole trunk of the tree like something had used the tree to pull its self up.
Then I felt it, a feeling I will never forget, the feeling that I should run and fast. I kept walking and as I did the feeling kept getting worse and worse until I was about thirty meters in when I couldn’t take it anymore and ran back out. When I had gotten back to the cottage my family had already brought our bags in.
The rest of the day went without any problems. We all went to bed and I soon discovered that night this would be one night that I wish had never happened.
The cottage had two bedrooms me and my siblings were all sleeping in one and my mom in the other, uncle Jesse was sleeping on the couch. It was about 3 am and I was laying in bed unable to sleep when I got up because I saw uncle Jesse leave the cottage. I got up and ran after him, I caught up to him about half way to the beach, he told me he was going to sit by the water for a bit so I joined him.
We were sitting by the water for about half an hour before we started to head back. The distance from the shore to the backdoor was about 150 meters. We had walked about 50 meters when the feeling from before returned stronger then before. I was guessing uncle Jesse felt it as well because he told me to speed it up. This is the hardest part for me to tell when we were about 25 meters from the door uncle Jesse broke out into a full blown sprint. Before I could as well, I felt a sharp pain on my back and something push me to the ground and I, again, heard a rumbling growl. I then felt a pressure on my back as if something was standing ontop of me. I heard screaming from the cabin, I raised my head to see my mother, siblings and uncle standing there with their faces locked in look of fear and they were white as snow. I could feel it. Whatever was causing the pressure had a scaly texture. Suddenly it lifted off of me.
I couldn’t move until my mom ran over and helped me up and I turned my head to see a massive creature hidden among the tall trees, all we could see were to large yellow lizard like eyes. My mom and I ran inside and locked the door and the five of us never left the cottage for the rest of out vacation. The creature had left a scar on my back from what I guess were its claws scraping against my skin.
Thank you for listening to my story I know how crazy this sounds but I swear this happened.
