The White Van
Location – Central Pennsylvania
It was a day like any other in the small town where I grew up. A sleepy little unasuming mountain town that was built during the early railroad days, which it was still famous for. This was a quiet and friendly place where a good majority of the people knew each other by name. It was the early 90’s and most parents, mine included, would allow us to have alot of freedom, especially during the summer to do what kids do.
My friends and I were a very tight nit group and spent alot of time together. We’d spend the day playing sports, hiking the local woods or just walking around the town talking and exploring, with kids coming and going from our group throughout the day. In nice weather it was a normal thing to spend the whole day away from the house without anyone really knowing where we were. Sometimes even arriving home after dark.
I was 12 or so at the time and having this kind of freedom at such a young age made me feel like my parents trusted that I could take care of myself and was smart enough to keep myself out of trouble. My mother had always warned me about stranger danger though and how I needed to be careful around people I didn’t know, because there were as she put it. “Bad, nasty people in this world.” Of course she also taught me to be respectful and polite to everyone I came across but always cautioned me to use my instincts and if something felt wrong to run or find an adult. This advice always stuck with me and I’m glad that it did.

This is a true story my grand parents told me about my great great grand father. Jin are the middle eastern names for demons who lurk in our world, haunting and terrorising the souls who cannot defend themselves from them.
First of all I would like to give you some back ground information about me and my family. I live in Sydney Australia but I originally come from Lebanon in the Middle east, born and raised there. My family has a long history of catholic priests that go back centuries. this story occurs in the south of Lebanon where my family originates. My Great Great grand father was a priest for many years throughout the late 1800’s to the midd 19th century traveling from one village to another to serve at masses and the needs of the local town’s people such as the poor.
he would often stay for many days at a time in each village, so my family being him was a good opportunity to gain quality wisdom and knowledge which was extremely valuable considering the time of history where this occurred. our family always experienced strange supper natural anomalies which were both positive, and at times blood curdalingly frigthning. One year my great, great grand father was traveling a long distance to get from one village too another. It started to get late and his donkey which he was ridding was becoming restless as the blackening darkness began to settle over the land.

Before I start I want to mention that I’m female and English isn’t my native language so I’m sorry for any grammar mistakes I might make.
Also it’s important to mention few things about my hometown. The town’s population is about 1 3oo and mostly fits in both sides of one road. There are mostly agribusiness, just one small grocery store, restaurant, bank and one small store which sells little bit everything. Because the size we also go nearby towns.
So this started at the end of may about three years ago. I was out from the second year of high school which located in a very nearby town where I still had to move. I got friend request on facebook from some guy I didn’t know. I started checking his profile. I noticed that he lived in my hometown, was four years older than me and had over 1 000 friends on that site. I was little confused because who seriously has that many friends in real life? Also I found out that I knew his sister. She graduated in year before from the high school. I had been talking with his sister and she was okay so I decided to accept the request. And I still regret that.
