First let me give you a bit of a background before my tale begins. I was about 12 years old at the time and I had just taken up photography. I live in a small town in Wisconsin that has a public campground just outside the limits and I had been looking for a spot for a unique photo opportunity, but little did I know what I was in for.
That summer I had been riding my bike for a few miles before I remembered that the campground had a small lake. I thought that I could make it there and back home before dark. I reached the entrance to the campground right before sunset and was in a hurry to take my photos and get home before dark.

This took place in the early 2010’s, I was either 7 or 6 years old when this happend, I was in my backyard camping since I’ve never been camping before and my parents thought it would be fun, I felt off, when ever I feel off I tell my mum a lot but I brushed it off. An hour passes and my mum and dad decided it’s time to hit the sack, we crawled in the tent and dozed off, then I woke up, being a 6 year old I didn’t know the exact time it was but I needed to use the bathroom, I crawled over to my mum and rubbed her shoulder slightly and said I needed to pee, she grumbled and told me to go outside near the tree, my old house had a long hedge that surrounded our house blocking off the neighbors, the tree was in a corner with the leaves covering my head, I walked over and used the bathroom, I remember that there was no sound what so ever, no late night crickets or rabbits or anything, but I remember a noise, my mums voice mixed with a animal noise and radio static then I felt a feeling of dread and I heard a rustling noise, in front of me was the hedge and a metal fence with an opening, I nearly screamed, I saw a grey/pale looking creature with withered skin, it looked about 7 feet tall and it looked lik it had fur almost, like a broken dog or something, then I gasped, I regret it though.It looked at me with yellow/ golden eyes, it just stared at me and it’s jaw unhinged, I froze in fear. I felt a warm liquid running down my face, I was crying in fear, I screamed and ran back to the tent, no one woke up, I was so scared I crawled next to my mum and slept. Hours later It was morning and my parents were cleaning up, we never camped in our back yard agian since I always refused, I telling this years later and I have never told anyone, I moved out of that state, if I didn’t mention it I lived in Massachusetts, I also just remeber I used to play outside alone in the back yard and just feel like I was being watched, I plan on telling my mum soon, I never want to go back to my old house agian.
My name is Christian and 2 years ago I moved from my small suburban home into a rural subdivision on a lake.
There are only 4,000 people in my town s not many eventful things happen. Since I was going to a different school I lost contact with most of my friends except for Nick and Nolan.

To protect the identity of the victim of this TRUE story and everyone involved in it, I took the liberty of changing people’s names. This took place on January of 2015 in the U.S. A little bit of back story… I had known my roommate Alex for three years at the time of the event. We met through a mutual friend that figured that I could use a Hispanic roommate when I moved to the States to go to college because I’m too a Spanish speaker. I always thought he was rather odd and possibly homosexual. But that never bugged me, considering that I have serval homosexual family members. Alex never spoke about his sexuality near me. In fact, I had every reason to believe he was homosexual because of the way he talked, dressed, and behaved overall. The thing that always stroked me as weird is the fact that he would constantly make fun of homosexuals.
After some time, my brother Jacob and I got extremely surprised when he introduced us to his new girlfriend Kelly. I remember saying: “wow I guess he is not gay after all” to my brother as a joke. Kelly seemed nice and all, but she didn’t live in town. So, Alex and Kelly were having a long-distance relationship and always spent their free time on Skype talking. After some time, my brother and I realized that Alex was coming home quite late. My brother then assumed that Alex was cheating on Kelly because he noticed that Alex would come back rather exhausted wearing his shirts inside out. It was none of our business, so we kept our theories to ourselves.

I am as most people say of me obsessed with the thought of there being things out there that not everyone sees or believes in especially the paranormal. I have had many encounter each seeming more terrifying than the last but the one i’m going to tell you about has been by far the most nerve raking encounter. The thing that makes this the scariest to me is the fact that it’s 2 events spanning across a year and a half but i didn’t know the events were connected until the 2nd. Now before I begin i probably give some background information about myself, I am a 16 year old male i’m roughly 5. 10″ and only weigh 115 lbs. I have lived all over the united states now living in North Carolina. So lets begin with the first event now this wasn’t the first time i’d experienced paranormal activity but it is the first in this string of events. So anyway it was last year I was a freshman in high school and the high school and middle school and a park are all on the same road. So one Saturday afternoon me and my family went to this park my Mom, Dad and sisters went to the park area but i was going on a run down the trail that connects the park and middle school its roughly 2 miles. So I put in my headphones and started to run everything was perfectly normal then about half a mile in something didn’t feel right. It seemed darker than when I had started I brushed it off and speed up a little the I saw a shadowy figure following me at first it scared me but I again came up to the conclusion that it was just my shadow but then my headphones went static and a laugh came through T ripped them out and booked it out of the wooded part of the trail. At The time I was terrified but didn’t tell anyone because I knew no one would believe me. The second encounter was the second day of my sophomore year which come to think of it was very odd it was the 2nd encounter 2nd day of school of the 2nd year of high school maybe I should look into that but perhaps that will be the beginning of a different story. But anyway i was walking into school blasting my music when i walked by the school dumpsters (this is completely normal because the buses drop of in the back so everyone does) and when i walked by I saw the same shadowy figure except this time he seemed less like a shadow and more like a man with pointed teeth and yellowish eyes I almost fell out of fear and people asked what my problem was I looked back where he was and he was gone so I said that i just tripped and kept walking and then my music went silent and was replaced by a chuckle then my music came back on.
