The thing in the field

Follow by Email

I live in a small village in the Scottish countryside surrounded by fields and forests and the like,there is a ww2 memorial at the top of a massive hill overlooking the entire village  with a small band of trees with a path through them and as teenagers we would gather there to drink and  smoke and the like.

one night at such a gathering there was about 10-15 of my friends just hanging out drinking etc.i was sober as I had work early the next morning so decided it was about time to leave when it all hit the fan.

somebody,let’s call her k was sitting on a bench overlooking the hill and fields when she gave a shout that somebody was coming up.we all rushed to see in case it was the cops or more like minded teens but I was frozen with fear at the sight of this thing making it’s way up the hill.

It must have been 9 feet tall and moved like it was floating over the ground.looked human in shaped but cloaked in a kind of blurry darkness,impossible to make out clearly.the speed it moved at suggested some one on a 4×4 or dirt bike but no engine noise could be heard…for that matter not even the noise of crunching crops as it made its way up the field.

we were all frozen until someone shouted out hey or something like that to this thing and the group broke for the trees to get back on the path.

everyone but me and 4 other guys who decide it was a prank.the think bucked to a stop in jerky movements and turned in a circle and then all of a sudden let out a noise that was a loud roar crossed with a scream and leaped yes leaped about 15 feet forward and moved faster uphill than before.i booked it through the trees and down the other side of the hill falling and rolling all the way to the bottom where everyone else has regrouped and was screaming and shouting threats up to the pitch black peak of the hill.complete silence fell like even the insects and cars couldn’t be heard at all and all of a sudden the scream/roar from earlier rang out and the figure launched itself out of the trees and began scrambling towards us.we ran as fast as we could and I even abandoned my gf (now my wife) as I just wanted to get away from this nightmare.i got home and locked all my doors and turned every light on in the house and didn’t sleep till dawn.

i have never seen the creature again and we walk our dog there everyday and night but sometimes I can still hear the scream ringing out around the trees and fields surrounding the village

Holy shit! That is all I can say.

I live in Central Scotland, in one of the villages near a city and the only neighbouring village is 2 miles away. If I had seen something like that I would have ran to my friend in the neighbouring village instead of home.
