It was a New Mexico Dogman

Im writing you today concerning an incident that happened when I was living outside of a rural area called Lakewood NM in the year 1999. For some background info, I was 18 at the time that this took place, and was raised my entire life in the deserts of south-eastern of New Mexico on two different very remote ranches. I am very well versed in the flora and fauna of our beautiful state, having spent much of my summers and weekends either doing ranch work on them or just messing around like kids tend to do. I even use to track animals semi-professionally for hunters and even our local trapper. I KNOW the critters around this state. We always lived on very remote ranches, 50, sometimes 75 miles from the nearest actual town. But anyways, my Senior year of high-school, I moved out on my own, being a part of a school work program, and I wanted to live closer to my job and school… Living just around 12 miles from Artesia NM, where my school and job were seemed like living right in town to me.

I guess my story really starts in April of 1999. Me and my boyfriend at the time were rooming with a couple in a trailer house just outside of Lakewood NM. We rented a room from them and sometimes watched their two kids as a part of our rental agreement. For a few months before that April, a lot of the neighboring landowners had been complaining about wild dogs coming up form the river and harassing their dogs and scarring their livestock. We were about a mile from the Pecos River, and wild dogs have indeed been a problem in the area, but this seemed a little more intense. There was even property damage being reported, with one guy a few properties down having had his chicken coup completely destroyed a few weeks earlier. The couple we lived with had two dogs, both of them medium-sized terrier mixes, and neither one of them were on the cowardly side, but they had been getting VERY skittish about going outside at night… So much so that we had to make sure to let them out right at sunset, and again at sunrise, because they would NOT leave the trailer house otherwise at night. It was all very strange.

One night at about 11pm, (It was a Saturday I recall, because I had neither work or school) the four of us were sitting around watching TV and just basically BSing about diffrent stuff when the dogs, who were asleep in the master bedroom on the far east side of the house, started growling and barking. This was really unusual behavior for them, so we all got up to see what they were on about. It seemed as if they were barking at the windows.

The scariest night of my life

7~17~18

This was yesterdays date but I couldnt write it then. Something terrible happened when I went to ? house yesterday with my sister. He was high and he wanted me to sit on his lap. Then he went to get a blanket. I thought he was just cold or something. Then he had me sit on his lap again but he covered us up. Then he started rubbing me. Then he slowly moved his hand around and put his hand in my pants. I wanted to say something but I didnt. He fingered me for a few minutes then pulled his pants down. My pants were still up but me made me sit on his ”thing”. He jerked off some. Then he started to pull mine down. I was scared. He almost had them down and then wanted a ciggarette and grabbed one. While he was busy doing that I pulled my pants back up and held them up. He tried to talk to me but I was so tired that I dont remember some of the things he said but here is what I remember…the whole story from the beginning:
?: *Gets a blanket*
ME: *Talks to sister*
?: Come here little one
ME: *Goes and sits on his lap*
?: *Starts rubbing me*
ME: *Gets scared*
?: *Uses finger and puts in my pants and put it in my vagina*
ME: *Scared and starts crying a little*
?: *Pulls his pants down and jerks off*
ME: *Scared still*
?: *Starts to take my pants off*
ME: *Tries to not let him*
?: *Continues before wanting a cigarette*
ME: *Pulls my pants up and holds them up*
?: *Whispers* Nooooo
ME: *Continues holding them up and ignores him*
?: * Whispers more*
ME: * Ignores him*
?: * Whispers* Heaven?
ME: * Doesnt speak but turns my head to show im listening*
?: * Whispers* Want to help?
ME: * Shakes head no*
?: *Whispers* Okay you can get up now

After that i got up and talked to my sister for a little bit. I was so shakey i couldnt stay still then if my life depended on it. That is how bad it was. Me and my sister left and I told her about it, About a week later I texted ?… I said to him “ Are you at least going to say sorry? “ He knew excactly what I was talking about and said sorry. But this all happened 7 days after my first period so it could have ruined my life more than it has. I wish this was all a dream. A scary dream. But it isnt. It was real. It really happened. >_< I wish it hadnt happened. It was scary and I couldnt think. Im lucky I was able to stop it from actually hurting me… Thanks for listening.

Psycho ex

First, I’m gonna give a little background. I’m 19, female. My ex is a year younger, we had an on and off relationship since middle school. I moved away for about 5 years to finish my education in a more stable environment then I moved back to be with him again.

All was alright at first, we had problems like a normal couple. I left twice by force over a pathetic fight but we made amends and came back together. All was good until about the last month of living together, he was mentally abusive. Calling me names but still I chose to stay and work things out..well try.

So, living there you’re always drinking or something to make life more interesting. On this property there’s two houses, one his parents lived on, the other one that’s where we stayed. Not rather livable and you almost die in heat or cold every year.

Creepy man

Ok I was on a Vacation with my grandparents, and me and my sis were waiting in the truck until we reached my apartment, I said hi to my parents and unpacked my close, until I looked outside my window and no one was there, so I went to put on new close, this little boy was looking though the window, and when I was finished, I saw him just staring, I told him to leave and he just repeated I saw you naked, the next day, my parents told me they signed me up for school, so I went to the bus stop. This grown man tapped me on the shoulder, I turned and looked at him, thinking he was homeless, I talked to him, my bus came. He grabbed my hand and said, I saw you naked. He lost the grip and I ran up to the bus. Now at night I feel as if some one was looking at me. My dog barks at the window and when I turn No one is there. This is my story.

Me vs. La Llorona

I was told this story by some BMX buddies who live in Texas. I went down with a friend of mine named Billy. Billy is a real macho guy. He’s at least 6 1/2 feet tall and almost 260 pounds of cement. When we were spending time with 3 bikers (we’ll call them Wheels, Spokes, and Motor), they casually asked us “Have you seen La Llorona?” Billy was blank-faced, but I heard them loud and clear. For those who don’t know, the legend states that La Llorona was a young and pretty woman who had 2 kids after her husband got her pregnant, then skipped town. She wanted to marry some rich dude, but he was not going for it because she had kids. Therefore, she stabbed her kids, then drowned them in the river. After her grave misdeed, she went to her lover’s house. When he saw the blood on the gown, he immediately rejected her. She ran back to the Rio Grande, desperate to save her kids, but I’m sure you can guess where the flawed logic is. Now, she’s doomed to spend eternity, roaming the banks of the river with a horse head as punishment. When I told Billy, he laughed.

The next night, me, along with the other 4 all walked to the Rio Grande. There was no moon, so we had flashlights, and Spokes had a LED lantern that was quite bright. As we walked, we suddenly heard a small splash. “A fish” Wheels said, trying to convince himself as much as us. “Just a fish.” We continued to walk, but Spokes (who was the youngest at only 15) got spooked and booked it for home. Motor laughed, but stopped after only 4 seconds. She was standing still and staring straight ahead. I was about to ask her what was going on, when her flashlight suddenly went out. Now, it was impossible to see what she had been staring at. “Okay” Billy said. “I’ve had enough; let’s go.”

The next night, I was determined to see if I could substantiate anything about this chick. I convinced Spokes to come with me and promised to protect him if anything happened. He told me about the version his mother told him concerning La Llorona. He told me if you say “I have your kids” she’ll come and look. When she sees you’re lying, what she does is really anybody’s guess. I went off ahead of Spokes and jokingly said “Llorona, I have your kids.” After I said that, Spokes screamed bloody murder and ran right into me. I was about to scold him, when I happened to look above his head and saw a woman with a horse head, and she was walking toward us. I was frozen in fear, and Spokes was hiding behind me, saying prayers. I took my flashlight and flung it at her. Without seeing if it connected, I grabbed Spokes, shone his lantern in front of us and ran for our lives. After about 10 feet, Spokes finally started moving and running unassisted. When we got to my car, we dove head-first inside, locked the doors and hid under the backseat. We heard someone knock on the window, but were too scared to look. We kept hearing the knocking getting more and more insistent. I told Spokes “Whatever you hear, stay down and don’t speak a word.” He had been sobbing by that point, but immediately stopped after I said that. I cautiously looked up and saw Wheels holding a flashlight. I opened the door and he said “Aren’t you 2 too old for hide-and-seek?” I told him I saw La Llorona, and fully expected him to say I was lying. Instead, he just nodded and said “You must’ve said you had her babies. Not smart, dude.” He drove me and Spokes back to his house and told his parents what happened. They both told us it was very stupid. I haven’t been to Texas since.

The Costume Ball Creeper

A little background before I start. I am a young female who just recently turned 21. This experience happened to me last year.

I was invited to a Halloween Costume Ball at a high-class venue. My friends and I all dressed up as angels. We got to the venue at about Quarter to Eight. As we were walking in, we noticed a rather beat-up black pickup truck pull into the parking lot. My friends and I shrugged it off.

After all maybe the person was laying up his costume.

Over the next hour, I danced and had some food with my friends. The whole time I noticed a creepy looking man staring at me. I thought to myself: “why is that old guy staring at me?” Then I left to go to the restroom. The room was completely deserted. Usually the bathrooms are packed with potheads and alcoholics. I immediately got a bad feeling. I hurried up into the stall to do my business.

The Shadow

It all started on my 7th birthday. Me and my friends brother and sister decided we should play hide and seek since my backyard was pretty big and i had space to run around and play.
its was a Friday evening around 8 o’clock and it was getting pretty dark. although our parents didn’t really care since my fences were pretty high so they weren’t worried of anyone getting lost in the woods behind my backyard.
My three friends, brother, sister and me headed to the backyard. when we got outside immediately a strong rush of wind blew our way.
We didn’t really think of it as a weird thing since it was autumn and it was getting colder. We assigned the groups off the hiders and the seeker.
i was amongst the seekers so my brother and two off my friends were hiding while me, my sister and my friend Chris were seeking.
we decided to split up so we could cover more ground. i went and look around the back off the yard and the other two went to the other side.
when i got there i crossed my back gate for some reason i didn’t want to go near it. i felt.. i knew someone was at the other side. how i don’t know but i didn’t want to find out who it was.
so i walked away form it. still searching i couldn’t keep my eyes off the gate. it felt like i had to open it. i kept telling myself to stay away but it was like a strong aura was emitting from behind the gate.
I wanted… no i needed to know what was behind that gate. i looked over my shoulder my sister and Chris where still searching. I looked inside the house… every one was busy talking. Ok it was safe to go and open it. I moved towards it.
The closer and closer i got to the gate the more nervous i was. i finally reached it i opened the door to see.. nothing. Nothing but woods at least. or so i thought at first cause when i looked deeper into the woods i saw a figure not a human figure no a smoke like figure.
Even though it was dark i could still make out its shadowy figure. i didn’t look at it for long because it hid behind the trees. That night i went to bed. i woke up at night i turned my head to look at my clock on my bed table it said 3:00 am. i wanted to sit up.
but i couldn’t.. it was like something was putting pressure on my chest. i couldn’t move. i wanted to scream but i couldn’t. I was so scared. but that fear of not moving was nothing compared to the fear i felt when i saw.. IT.. I saw the shadow in my room. i could move again.
i sat up and ran. i ran to my parents room. only to be welcomed by the gore and blood…
i ran to my brothers and sisters room. Only to see blood splattered on the walls. i stood there frozen. Suddenly the room was cold ice cold. i felt dread. a hand touched my shoulder. It was the shadow. he spoke…Now we can be together again…

What’s that thing on my back

I’m not sure exactly what day this was on but it was a very scary experience. One morning as I woke to my sister getting ready for church I yawned and she told me to go back to sleep because I didn’t need to be awake. She left and I went back to sleep, one hour later I woke up again and checked my phone to see the time, it was 10:00 a.m. and I had fallen back asleep for about ten minutes.

When I woke back up I couldn’t move, I got scared and tried to reach for my phone. When my arm wouldn’t move, I tried to get up and failed, then a few seconds later my sister started to mess with me and step on my back and hand. After she got off I screamed and was finally able to get up, I shot out of my bed and looked frantically around the room, she wasn’t there and no one else was home.

She wasn’t back yet, I sat there for a few minutes and cried a little bit. I don’t know if that was sleep paralysis or not but it scared me so much that I don’t go back to sleep when my sister leaves for church.
