So, let me preface this by saying that I don’t scare easily, or at least am not scared by a lot.
Anyways, It was about mid November at the time of this happening, and it was oddly nice, 55 degrees, a bit chilly but nice. It being nicer than usual decided to take my daily jog in the local forest seeing as I practically live in the woods.
I walked up to the front of the gate, well fence at the front of the forest pathway. i’m not going to be cliche and say “It felt spooky” ” something felt…off.”, it just felt completely and utterly normal, maybe even nice.
I started my jog, I looked at the trees above my head savoring every pine scented inhale. I continued for about 20 minutes, then I decided to head back. As I made my way to the gate-fence, I noticed something, it was a man, he looked about 5′ 11 to 5′ 12, he had a long gray beard, a black leather jacket and jeans on…..the odd thing about this man is that he was standing in a filed of dead, long grass starring into the forest with a baseball bat in hand.
He looked a bit agitated seeing as his had was very tightly gripped around the neck of the bat, and for the small amount of time I saw his face, it looked like an angry frown, a tough guy look.
I got spooked, I started jogging away picking up speed so he wouldn’t see me, eventually making it home. Though he could have been a totally cool guy I was just not risking it, he could have easily taken me down if he was malicious, but again, I don’t know his intent. Maybe it’s my paranoia, or anxiety but I was sure spooked.
