Creepy backwoods experience

Hi, my name is Carter, I’m a freshman in high school, and I live in a house that has a huge expanse of forest behind it. I explore these woods behind my house quite often, and I used to make trips through it to get to my ex-girlfriend’s house with ease since I don’t have a car(at the time of this story I was still dating her). Unfortunately, I had an experience that has guaranteed that neither I, nor my ex, will ever set foot in those woods ever again.

This happened over 8th grade summer break.

I left my house around 10:00 to get to hers, it was dark, but I wasn’t worried, I had made the trek many times before, plus, her parents were going on vacation for a week, so I was willing to walk through the forest alone at night if it meant being alone with her for a week.

it was about a 20 minute walk going straight north, and I was confident that I would get there within 5 minutes after her parents left.

Now, my girlfriend and I had made plans for a doctor who netflix marathon, we were both major nerds, but of course, I was still excited to be alone with her for the night.

After walking for maybe 5 minutes or so, I saw movement out of the corner of my eye, I turned to see nothing there. Slightly disturbed, I texted my girlfriend to wait for me at her backdoor, I was worried that I may have to run from a wild coyote or something, and I wanted to be sure she would be ready to open and close the door quickly if I did end up running for it.

It was then that, I kid you not, I heard her say my name, and I immediately knew something was off, the voice I heard say my name said it in an almost seductive manner, but my ex had never talked to me in a seductive tone, nor did I think she even knew how to sound seductive.

Plus, she was at her house, so I knew that whatever I heard couldn’t be her.

I started walking faster, checking my phone to be sure I was going north.

Then, I saw movement in the corner of my eye again, I turned even quicker than before, and I saw it, a pale, naked, humanoid creature, or at least it’s head.

Then, to my horror, it slowly stood up.

Now, I’m a 6-foot-tall guy, so I’m not by any means small, but this thing towered over me. I was more terrified than I’d ever been before, but I had one advantage that probably saved my life, I have a very strong, very fast acting, fight or flight response, before this thing had even fully stood up, I was booking it north.

I could see the lights of my girlfriend’s house through the trees, and I started screaming to her OPEN THE DOOR! OPEN THE DOOR!” I was maybe 10 yards from the door when I saw her open it, I heard her start to reply “Carter, why are you yelling? WHAT THE HECK IS THAT!”.

I didn’t reply, I just ran in the house, and without stopping, grabbed the door knob, and slammed the door shut. I heard a loud bang from the door, as if something large had hit it at a high speed. My girlfriend was hysterical, she kept yelling that we were going to die,

I sat her down on a couch, and managed to calm her down.

We stayed on that couch for the rest of the night, terrified. Later, she told me that the thing had been right behind me, and that it had actually been about to grab me, when I had managed to somehow put on an extra burst of speed, and shut the door. I still don’t know what that thing was, but I can guarantee that no one could ever, make me go into that forest again.

Sheev Talks

This happened over the most recent summer, during 2017. I had just passed my Sophomore year of high school by a hair, and I was now free enough to get work. I was sixteen, so I was feeling confident that I would be hired somewhere, and I needed the money if I was going to start saving for college. I also had a YouTube channel (and still do) but I wasn’t making enough to support myself, or pay for my tuition.

Despite all of the jobs I applied for at various businesses, I was turned down by every single one of them, and I was beginning to become desperate. Summer was nearly halfway over, and if I didn’t make money now, I wouldn’t have time to work during the school year. I eventually was forced to cave, and resort to taking a job as a babysitter, which I’d been warned to never do. My mother had once been a babysitter, and she says that to this day, it was the worst job she’s ever had.

Mom told her friend from work, who we’ll call Charlene, so that her name remains anonymous, that I was looking for work as a babysitter, because Charlene had always been complaining that she can never find a cheap enough sitter to watch her son, who we’ll call Joey. I didn’t like settling for cheap pay, but I realized if I charged as much as the professionals, there would have been no point in hiring me, which was why I settled for three dollars an hour.

The following evening would be my first night watching Joey. Charlene was having to work the late shift, and she wouldn’t be home until nearly 2:30 AM. I was willing to stay up until then, and even brought over a book to keep entertained. I was in the middle of Star Wars: Aftermath, and I knew this would be the perfect opportunity to get it done. Charlene told me to have Joey to bed by 10:30, to help myself to anything in the fridge, and that Joey and I could basically do whatever we wanted as long as we were in the house by 9:00. I wasn’t sure why, but she drastically stressed to me that Joey wasn’t to be out after 9.

After that she left, and Joey and I were left alone. We decided to play board games for a couple of hours, and then, after heating up the leftover pizza in the refrigerator, we sat in front of the TV and watched Spongebob for the rest of the night. At 10:00, I told a reluctant Joey that it was time for bed, so he brushed his teeth, got in his pajamas and went into his room.

After he went to bed, I read a few chapters of my book, and then turned on the TV to watch some Tonight Shows. At around midnight, I went to check on Joey. I wanted to make sure he’d really gone to sleep, because I was sure his mom would be mad if she came home in the middle of the night and her son was still awake. But when I went to turn the knob, it was locked.

I wasn’t sure if Joey was allowed to lock himself in his room, but I didn’t want to ask him, and risk waking him up if he was asleep, and I didn’t want to be that babysitter who panders the parents with questions while they’re out, so I didn’t want to bother Charlene while at work, even though she told me to call her if there was any issue. I decided to just leave it the way it was, and if Charlene asked me why his door was locked, I would pretend to have no idea what she was talking about.

I went back to the living room to continue watching my shows, and about a half hour later, I heard the most piercing sound reach my ears. I swear, my eardrums might have bled. It came from Joey’s room. More specifically, it came from Joey. He was screaming at the top of his lungs in the most high-pitched screech, and it caught me completely off guard. I nearly toppled over on the couch.

The screaming became louder, and it wouldn’t stop, and I ran for his room, trying with all of my might to get in. The door was still locked, and what was worse: it was now scorching. It branded my hand, seething my palm the moment I touched it, and I yanked it back. I began pounding on the door, telling Joey to let me in, but I was sure he had no control over this situation. His scream intensified, and I began to grow more and more worried. What was happening in there?

I began kicking at the door, and when it wouldn’t budge, I went all the way down to the end of the hallway, and bolted toward the door, gathering all of my strength. I slammed my shoulder into the door, and with the combination of force between my weight and my strength, I knocked the door off of its hinges. I fell to the floor, but was instantly back to my feet, and what I saw the moment I looked at the bed sent chills down my spine.

Hovering over Joey, who was no longer screaming, but was now crying, was an entity of pure evil. It was all black, with no face, but I could tell it looked at me by the way its-I don’t want to necessarily call it a head, but its head-churned in my direction. It wasn’t really a tangible thing, more like a shadow, and I could feel its darkness split open my soul. It pointed at me, to my own horror, and then zoomed in my direction, going directly through me and hurrying out into the dark hallway.

When it went through me, it was the first time in my life I felt so empty, as if all of my life had just been drained from my body, and I dropped to my knees. Joey was still crying, but he seemed to take comfort in my presence. We just stared at each other for a moment, before I pulled out my phone and called the police, and then Charlene. The cops asked us a bunch of questions, but Joey refused to speak, and I was forced to tell them everything, although I was sure they didn’t believe me. They left before Charlene even showed up, because she and my mom worked at a brewery way far out from civilization.

When Charlene arrived, I told her everything that happened, and she seemed to already know everything I was going to say. I demanded to know what that thing was, but she instead rushed me out of the house, and told me to never come back. To this day, months later, I still don’t know what it was I saw that night, and I hope I never see it again.

Summer Attack

Hello my name is Ashley I live in a small town not far from an Native American reservation. In Oklahoma.

I was 14 in the summer of 2010 is was about a week into are school break so I was dieing for something to do.

I’ve always loved going out door and going to all the different bike trails around are town. But that soon got old and I wanted something new to me. Then when I got the idea of fixing up an old bike trail out near the reservation.

I got my older  brother Daniel who was 20 at the time to come along with me. He was always the type to get into fights and never scared easy. So he was always in some kind of trouble. But he had a car and was good about finding his way thought the woods and hills around are town so he was the perfect person to come with me.

So we set a date and head out to the trails about two weeks into summer break.

The first day we most walked what little path we could find of the trail the lead thought the woods. My brother had the idea of coming back the next day with machetes to clear out the low hanging branches and weeds that covered the main path ways. I agreed and we start heading back to the car. About have way back we started to hear weird animal calls coming from the woods but didn’t think much about it when we got to the car my brother said it must of been a wolf or a dog the was hurt the highway was not to far away.

So the next day we got their as soon as the sun started to break through the morning sky lighting the woods in twilight. It was a peaceful time and we soon worked are way all the way through lunch clear out a good amount of the trails even make some sick bike jumps as well. Before we new it the sun had set. Thats when we started hearing the animal call again this time it was close then before!

The moment the call went out everything went dead. Not a single sound could be hard except for cars pass by on the highway to the north of the wood. I looked at my brother who had a spooked look on his face he was looking at something up one of the uncleared tails the. He let out with a list of words the would make a sailor blush he picked up his machete and told me to run! I looked at him confused at first the I looked past him and saw what he was looking at.

I screamed in terror and stared to cry this got the things attention. It was tall around 7ft or so it chest was well built but is ribs where showing as if it had been starved. Its limbs where not proportionate to it’s body long and thin. It hands end in claws and it face was the worse it had the skull of a deer but the jaw was that of a dogs and it’s eyes where a solid black.

As it looked at me It let out the most horrible scream I have ever heard it was like a mix of a deer in pain and a cat hissing. Then it ran right for me!!!!

My brother screamed for me to run again. As he through him self at the monster. I had no choice I ran crying the whole way. I ran harder then I every have scared the whole time thinking my brother was died or dieing and it was coming after me next!

I was so scared and frantic I didn’t notice at first that I ran out of the woods and right onto the highway where I ran into a State patrolman who was performing a traffic stop.

He took one look at me and ran for me. I immediately starting pointing back at the wood telling the office my brother was being attacked but some kind of monster. I didn’t care at that point if he though I was crazy all I wanted was to help my brother. To my shock the office believed me and he called in back up.

As soon as back up arrived.  He went into the woods gun draw I sat in the back set of the car as I told the other offices about what had attacked us but they didn’t seem to believe me. The the raido call came that they we going to need a e.m.t that their had been an animal attack.

I started to cry again at this point the offices left me alone until  the office who I originally ran into came back. He was as white as a sheet. At first I thought he was going to tell me that my brother was gone or dieing but to my relief he said my brother was fine just some cuts and few broken ribs.

He then tells me that we are both lucky to be standing here that when he came across my brother he was laying aginst a tree with blood all over. I asked about the monster hoping to hear the cop had killed it. That’s when he look at me and said the animal was limping away with a machete in its side when I arrived it was already pretty far down the trail so I left it. That thing won’t live long with a wound like that your brother did good to fight off that bear.

I paused for a moment then said that was no bear that attack us but a monster. The office looked at me and said you where scared you probably didn’t see it for what it really was then in a lower voice he said to me so no one else could hear. My grandma told me about those monster before if I say it was a bear it was a bear and leave it at that.

After that they toke me home to my mother. We waited their for the cop to bring my brother’s car home so we could get to the hospital seeing as he had the only car.

When we finally get to the holidays my brother is sitting with a look of relief on his face when he sees that I’m ok. He has to have 326 stitches but afterwards he was ok. But he will never talk about what happens and as for me I did some research into what I say and the only two things that monster could of been was ether a Windago or a Skinwalker. I also refuse to go near the woods every again. My brother on the other hand continues to go hiking and bike riding through the woods because he believes what every it was he killed it. I do not believe so. So if you are ever in Oklahoma never go into the woods at dusk!!!!!

Some sort of Dinosaur

This story takes place in 2016, in Seattle, Washington. It was the middle of July, a few weeks before School began.

My Sister, niece, and Mother drove all the way from California to Washington State. a 13 hour drive that I slept hours through. We were going to visit my Oldest brother David, my nephew Lincoln, and Sister-in-law Elisa. When we arrived, I was tired, and wanted to sleep in bed, and after making a fort of pillows and blankets, I fell asleep.

The next day, we planned to go out on Lake Washington on a boat, and drive around. Lake Washington was a big lake, and since the 1950’s has gone a transformation to be a very clean and clear lake.

An important note, is that the fish in the lake are Trouts, Bass, Crappie, and Yellow Perch. Small fish for a big lake I guess. We were driving to the lake early in the morning, and I had brought two fishing rods, and some tackle for me and my older brother. It had to be around 6:30 AM when we got there, and it was oddly quiet on one end of the lake where it meets May Creek.

We put the boat in the water as fast as possible, and loaded it up with the things we brought.

We headed out into what could’ve been 50-70 feet of water, when we began Fishing. The water was lively, there was a tree that was sticking out of the water, and Bass, Trout, and Perch were all around it.

So far, we had 4 Fish. Three Bass, and one Perch. The water was very clear until the bottom, which was a bit clouded because of the constant moving sediment. Me and David both dropped hooked worms into the water when the fish disappeared. “Hey, where’d all the fish go?” I asked, looking around.

“Maybe you scared them off, bud”

My sister-in-law said from where she was laying down. Both me and David watched the log, hoping fish returned to it.

But nothing. In fact, we were still the only boat in the area. It was dead quiet, and I somehow didn’t freak out. Suddenly, the log moved and the water around it splashed. We thought the log was moving due to it rotting in the water, but, it wasn’t that.

I happened to look down, and saw something massive swimming around the log. Me and my brother both threw lines down in with bait, and hoped to catch the thing, which we thought was a record Bass or hell, even a Trout. The thing though….began to ram into the log, making it move.

I pulled my line up, and so did my brother.

Then, a fish swam by, it was a huge Large-mouth Bass. The black thing looked like it was pointing upwards, and we suddenly saw a huge thing come out of the water in front of everyone, and fall downwards on the Bass. Bubbles and sediment went everywhere, and we could only see and hear struggling in the cloudy waters. And then the blood came..as well as a Fish head. We got the boat on and got the hell out of there. When we got onto shore, we noticed a log had chains wrapped around it, leading into the lake.

This is when we saw the creature again. But this time, it did something either amazing, or horrifying. The chains tightened, and we all saw the log being ripped up from the ground, and dragged into the lake. The monster was on the surface. We saw large points on the surface, with some sort of tail at the back. Then, it submerged, though the log was behind the thing, going to the deeper lake….

We never saw it again, and a news report said that 9 people saw the log floating later on….

 

Something in The Woods

Hi, my name is Carter, I’m a 16 year old guy in my sophomore year of high school, I live in a house that has a huge expanse of forest behind it. there is a large expanse of woods behind my house, and I have made many trips through it to get to my girlfriend, Sophie’s, house. last summer though, I had an experience that has guaranteed that neither I, nor my girlfriend, will ever set foot in those woods again. It was around 10:00 when I left my house to get to hers, it was dark, but I wasn’t worried, I had made the trek many times before, plus, her parents were going on vacation for a week.

it was about a 20 minute walk going straight north, and I was confident that I would get there within 5 minutes after her parents left. now, don’t get me wrong,

I had no plans of sexual intercourse, my girlfriend and I had plans of a doctor who marathon, we’re both huge nerds, but of course, I was still excited to be alone with her for the night. However, after walking for maybe, 5 minutes or so, I saw movement out of the corner of my eye, I turned to see nothing there. Slightly disturbed, I texted my girlfriend to wait at her backdoor for me, I was worried that I may have to run for it, and I wanted to be sure she would be ready to open and close the door if I did end up running for it.

I have a very strong, very fast acting, fight or flight response, before this thing had even fully risen, I was booking it north. I could see the lights of my girlfriend’s house through the trees, and I started screaming to her “SOPHIE! OPEN THE DOOR! OPEN THE DOOR!” I was maybe 10 yards from the door when I saw her open it, I heard her start to reply “Carter, why the heck are you yellin- WHAT THE HECK IS THAT!”.

I didn’t reply, I just ran in the house, and without stopping, grabbed the door knob, and slammed the door shut. I heard a loud bang form the door, as if something large had hit it at a high speed. My girlfriend was hysterical, she was crying against a wall, she kept repeating that she was going to die, I sat her down on a couch, and managed to calm her down. We stayed on that couch for the rest of the night.

Later, she told me that the thing had been right behind me, and that it had actually been about to grab me, when I had managed to somehow put on an extra burst of speed, and shut the door. I still don’t know what that thing was, but I can guarantee that nothing could ever ever make me go into that forest again.
