This occurred when I was 15 and camping with my brother and his oldest son (my nephew). My brother is drawn to nature and prefers to be out in it as often as he can. My nephew on the other hand, not so much.
I love nature and also feel a close connection with it. The story starts with me and my nephew out gathering some good firewood and kindling. It was nearing dusk so the light was fading and the forest was slowly becoming cloaked in shadows. The sounds of the forest were nearly deafening. The cries of the cicada’s, the chirping of crickets, the loud hoots of a great-horned owl.
My nephew and I heard my brother calling us back to camp, we had gathered a lot of kindling and firewood and began to head in the direction of his voice. As we got closer I noticed that the voice sounded ‘off’. Like it was him, but at the same time it wasn’t him. In addition I noticed that our surroundings were unfamiliar. Something wasn’t right, and my gut told us we needed to get out of that area NOW! I dropped my firewood and placed my hand on my nephews shoulder who was still going forward. The following conversation is paraphrased as I cannot remember it word for word.

Growing up, my brother and i attended a prestigious private school in our country. My family was pretty well off my father was a prominent criminal lawyer & our mother was a physician. When i was sixteen my brother was in his final year of secondary school he was on the fast track for the Dux & had just been named Head Boy. Sometime in March my brother attended a party in which a girl from my year was attending from what i heard at the latter trials they hit it off and went up stairs to the host’s parent’s room. Around two weeks after the party the very same girl filed a police report & alledged to school officials that my brother had sexual assaulted her after she refused his sexual advances.
At the time our father was an up and coming figure in criminal law & the school was his main financial bneficiary. The girl was suspended for casting aspersions & my brother was arrested the same day. My brother was charged with sexual assault. During the trial my father defended my brother and my parents never left his side and remained firmly confident in his acquittal. I remember the malignant smirk my father and mother made everytime the girl’s family burst into tears and their legal team fell apart.
When my brother was finally aquited he turned and faced the girl and blew her a kiss. My mother and father were estatic about my brother’s exoneration and life returned to normal almost instantly my brother went off to university to study medicine & i returned to school every time the girl saw me she would just start crying, i would tell my mother about this and she would just joke that’s the price you pay for trying to ruin her child.

This started when I was in college 9 years ago.
I worked for a man named Bob K. Bob was a retired Volkswagen race car driver in the 70’s and had since became an automotive journalist. He had some health issues that resulted in him not being able to lift anything or move anything around.
I would go work for Bob twice a week inbetween classes and usually get lunch and $20. $20 is life when you’re in college.
This story is when Bob and his wife went to the SEMA car show in Las Vegas. He asked if I would watch his house for him and take care of his dog and bird. His dog, Bridgette, was a King Cavalier Charles Spaniel and literally the sweetest dog ever. In the year I had known her I never heard her so much as bark. She was soft, kind and loved a snack.

I’ve always been a believer of the supernatural and have always wanted to encounter someone or something; but for my first experience, it wasn’t what I had expected.
It had happened back in 2013 to be exact, during summer vacation.
I was busily doing my daily chores before my mother had come home and my little brother was playing his game as usual in the living room. I live in an apartment with my two brothers and one sister, along with my mother. During this occurrence, my older sister wasn’t home and my older brother had been sleeping. It was around 2 p.m. getting closer to 3 during the day. I hadn’t believed that such a terrifying event could happen during the day.
