Kickapoo Meadows

My story might be different than some as I’m new to darkness prevails as a good friend of mine referred me. So to start out I’m just going say that growing up my experience with any paranormal happenings were minimal like I’ve seen only two human apparitions in my lifetime but I’ve seen plenty animal spirits which ties in with the title of my story.

You see I grew up in a small town called Dixmoor, Illinois on the south side suburbs of Chicago. For the most part Dixmoor was and still is a quiet small town with very little happenings and very very little haunts at least from my perspective. There are abandoned houses that haven’t been knocked down and reclaimed by nature that give off a haunted vibe.

However there are two places that are for sure haunted. An old abandoned steel mill factory off 144th and Wood street. Which is right across from where Al Capone buried his victims, supposedly. Me and my friends have ventured on the grounds of the old steel mill but haven’t ventured too far in because there aespcially of deep holes one can fall into as well as it being inhabited by a pack of stray dogs, but that’s a story for another day.

The shadow figure opposite my bed

For some background I am a 14 year old female, I live in England and have grown up in a house that was built on the land of an old mental asylum. So throughout my life I’ve had many creepy things happen to me, my family and people that just come around and visit. But personally this is the creepiest thing that has happened to me in my house.

It was around July/August 2018, I can’t remmeber the exact time I just know it was in summer, it was just a normal night with me staying up on my phone until the early hours of morning, you know how it is. Up until about a year ago I was never able to sleep in the dark so it was kind of a new thing to me since I’ve always had a night light. So at about 2am I turned of my light and went to sleep.

Then at around 4/5am, once again I can’t remember the exact time, and I woke up to something but I didn’t know what. I looked around letting my eyes adjust to the darkness and I know it sounds so cliché but if you experience it you will know it’s an actual feeling but I genuinely felt like I was being watched and I was so on edge but it was pitch black in my room so I couldn’t see anything.

Do You See It?

My family’s house isn’t one of those stereotypical houses that was built in the middle of the woods where there isn’t anyone else for miles, but we do have a decently sized forest surrounding our property. We moved here due to my husband having to relocate for work, and while I was a bit uncomfortable with the new location, I have grown attached to the silence and serenity we didn’t have living in the city.

We’ve been living here for close to two years, and in that time, we were incredibly happy. We had a back yard that was big enough for our son to play in and that allowed us to get a dog, I was able to take up my long time desire to learn archery, and my husband loved his job and was making a rather substantial amount of money. Our neighbors were incredibly nice, the local school was excellent and very accommodating, and I found a good job working as a secretarial assistant. For lack of a better word, things were perfect.

Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end.

Something touched me

It is an important to know that during this time I was sharing a room with my little sister and that my bed was up against the wall, underneath the window. Anyways, one night I remember waking up because I was really hot so keeping my eyes closed, I stuck out my right leg out from under my blankets in an attempt to cool down a little bit before rolling over to face the wall. This is when I felt something touch my leg. It felt like something’s fingers pressing on my leg in three spots that were relatively in the same location as if it only had three fingers. At this I felt my heart drop and I remember forcing myself to stay calm and resist the urge to scream for my parents because I didn’t want to alert whatever touch me that I was now awake. I tried to fall asleep which took forever so in the end I only moved when my sister moved around in her bed but i was to scared to moved in the eerie silence that was only increasing my fear of whatever touched me, giving that suspense. I don’t know what it was because I didn’t see it because I was too scared that if I turned around and opened my eyes I would be staring at something horrible’s face and I really didn’t want that. All I know it wasn’t my sister because I could hear her snoring in her bed and no one in my house wasn’t up still. This hasn’t happened since and I can’t help to feel that I was just being delusional or whatever because of how random this event was.

Red Eyed Monster in the hallway – Duplicate

Location: Maine

This story takes place in 1993 when I was just 4 years old. Now, I’m not exactly sure if this experience was a reoccurring dream, or my young imagination running wild. Or if it was indeed something more sinister trying to frighten me when I attempted to sleep alone in the dark.

At the time this takes place, I lived with both my parents in a fairly large mobile home trailer. It was brand new and had no dark history or deaths that could have possibly taken place there. I doubt it was haunted, so what I believe happened to me was no more than a series of nightmares triggered by seeing too much ‘Tales From The Crypt” at a young age. However, this experience is still the reason why I have a slight uneasiness when it comes to dark hallways and shadowy corners.

Now before I jump right into the story, let me just say that I’m well aware of how ridiculous and oddly hilarious some of it is. Even though I’m still nervous of the dark, I can easily say I can laugh about some of this now because of it being such a random silly thing for a creepy red eyed creature to ask of a small child. But we’ll get to that shortly.

Willistead Manor Haunting

I’d like to start this off by saying, I am a very loyal subscriber to Darkness Prevails and love the cryptic tales that are frequently posted. The paranormal intrigues me greatly, and I’ve always wondered what it would be like to experience one of these terrifying encounters. Call me crazy, but I sometimes even wish something frightening or paranormal would happen to me, just so I could feel the rush and mysteriousness that comes along with it. It’s just something I crave. However after what happened last night, yes, last night (May 5th, 2018), I’m not sure I ever want to step foot outside of the house again past midnight. Here is my experience.

It was almost midnight, and my friends and I were heading to Tim Horton’s after watching Blumhouse’s Truth or Dare. We’re all seventeen, and for my friends’ safety/privacy, let’s just call them: Nate, Danny, and Mike. Now, I won’t spoil anything, but it wasn’t exactly the greatest horror movie we’ve ever seen. In fact, the ending was so pathetic that we were laughing about it during the entire car ride to Tim’s.

After getting some food, hanging out and then dropping off Nate at his house, it was about 1:00 AM. Myself, Danny, and Mike were allowed out as long as we wanted because our parents were sleeping and I had my sister’s car. For the first hour or so, we drove around town stopping by a few of the elementary schools that we knew of in the area and climbed them. Yes, I know that’s considered trespassing and it’s kind of illegal, but it’s just a hobby that we picked up recently and we mean no harm at all. It’s just something that gives a rush of adrenaline, which I enjoy as I mentioned earlier.

The Nurse Who never went home

About 6 months ago, I used to work at a nursing home in sounthern Virginia. I had only had my Nurse Aide Certification for about four months at the time, so I was still fairly new.

On this particular day I was assigned to my normal 3PM-11PM shift. I finished my work as I normally would and when 11PM came I patiently waited for the night shift aide to show up. But she never did. Which meant I had to stay and work the night shift, which I had never done before.

The hallways was only being illuminated by the light at the nursing station. I quickly made a round to make sure my residents were in bed.

Martie’s woods monster

My aunt rented out a section of a woman’s house for a few years in Lowell Vermont. my Father would often bring us up there over the summer to go swimming and see out cousins. Our cousins would often tell us stories of seeing shadows outside at night, foot steps, nails being ripped from the walls and panting being smashed. I didn’t believe them until i had a paranormal experience at there house one time playing Hide-and-go-seek. but that’s a different story.

My sister and i stayed the night one weekend near the end of summer vacation. we decided to pull an all nighter and at around midnight we all decided to play man-hunt in the woods. The person hunting had a flashlight and the rules were if he had you in the flashlight you had 5 seconds to get out or you were considered caught and had to sit in the garage until the round was over. My oldest cousin drew the short straw. the rest of us took off into the woods.

I hid behind some bushes right next to a tall ever green tree looking toward the house. I could see my cousin looking around the shorter trees about 50 feet away from me. He eventually moved on out of my line of sight. everything was quiet, almost like someone had forgotten to turn on the volume, until i heard a few foot steps to my left. I thought it was the seeker but there was no flashlight, so i figured it was another hider so i go to see who it is, i turn around the tree and see a dark figure facing away from me in what looked like the fetal position. I whisper them, but before i could get the first word out it jumped, almost like i startled it, it slowly raised itself up and turned to look at me. what ever this thing was had pure white glowing eyes, had to have been 7 feet tall and it’s arms reached all the way down to the ground white it was standing. it didn’t make a noise and didn’t move, it just looked at me. i couldn’t see it’s face very well because it’s eyes were so bright. after a few seconds i saw a flashlight shine into it, my cousin started counting “one…two…th-” before he could get to three he saw it too. it darted it’s eyes onto my cousin, shushed him and then jumped into the tree and leaped from tree to tree until we couldn’t see it anymore.
“what the hell” my cousin said in a hushed trembling voice
“let’s just get the others and go inside” i said grabbing his arm

Not Your Average shadow person

Before this house, I didn’t believe in ghosts, after moving out, I haven’t seen another one. I am the first person to pick apart a video or a picture that is a hoax. That said, I have a story for you.

I was younger, about 10 years old, when I encountered the weird world of the paranormal. We’d just moved into a new home; it was the last house down on a dead end dirt road. The only other home on this street was our neighbor to the right.

He was an old man, could barely walk, and completely blind in one eye, and mostly blind in the other. I heard my parents mention he had daughters before but I never actually saw them. According to my parents, they were just waiting around for their dad to die. Pretty depressing, actually.
