(Beford this begins, this story is 100% true. Also, in the story i made it sound kind of calm, but it was not. Please keep in mind that while the story may seem kind of calm, the entire time dread, fear, stress and anxiety took me over. Thanks) Hello, I’m a 15 year old from a small town in Indiana. I have been with our school’s marching band for 2 years. I play trumpet, but my one year I was put on Synthesizer (A big electronic bass piano, with the ability to make samples for use in our show) We are in Class b, and we have various connections between schools around our area. There is a school we know, who are in class a (Class is based on amount of people in that school.) Our percussion ensemble went to this school in June of 2017. This school was much bigger than ours, (I mean, our high school could fit inside it at least 3 times) so, we began to practice. The Marimbas, Vibraphones, and bells went into the band room, while the synthesizers went into the choir room. There were 5 in all, me, My best friend still to this day, and 3 other kids from the school. After practice, they bought some pizza, but no soda. They had gatorade and stuff, but i really needed caffeine. I asked one of the kids where a soda machines was, and they said in the cafeteria. My friend and i began to walk down a really long hall towards the cafeteria, when we saw 2 kids, about 8 and 9, riding around on a swivel office chair. They had wheeled into an indent in the hall that ked to rooms. We didn’t think anything of it. We made our way down, but once we got to the indent, there was no door, no kids, nothing. We were creeped out, but carried on. We got our drinks, and made our way down the hall again. We made it past the indent, and we heard a loud crash. We turned around to see a light was out, and below it was the silhouette of aMassive figure, Holding what appeared to be some type of hook or anchor. Me and my friend were completely frozen in fear. Suddenly, a voice came from the..thing. “Now i lay me down to sleep. Pray the lord my soul to keep. If i die before i wake, pray the lord my soul to take.” The voice was so scraggly, it sounded like a person trying to imitate my father. Eventually, me and my friend moved backwards, to see if step out of the light. It had long, greasy black hair covering its pale, cracked skin. It had black eyes, but were bloodshot. It had a hand missing, and was shaking. Eventually, me snd my friend built up enough speed to run down the hall. We made it back to safety, and we didn’t tell anybody what happened, out of fear of making a fool of ourselves in front of seniors. We jusr Kept quiet about it. My friend recently brought it up. I immediately remembered it, and we got to talking about it. Halfway through our conversation, he said that the shadow was very creepy. I replied, saying that he was crazy for thinking that was the scariest part. He said, “Yea, that wasn’t the scariest part. The scariest part was when he recited the lords prayer in my moms voice.” I froze, and told him that it was my dads voice i heard. He said otherwise. I asked him what he thought the creature was. He looked confused. “Creature? There was just a shadow figure. What creature?” Chills ran down my body. I was absolutely shocked and petrified. I wanted to post this here, because i need somebody to try and explain this creature. I know this sounds like a fake story, or a creepypasta, but it’s real. Believe me or not, i know what i saw.
