As a child I was very explorative and would spend most of my time going around the neighbourhood, playing in woods with friends (making camps etc)
Anyway I was 12 years old when myself and my younger brother were walking home from a night out with our family. We just walked through some deep
woods and came out onto a road. The area is very familiar to me. Anyway as we got to the top of the footpath I suggested to my parents that me and my
brother walk one way home and they walk the other way, to see who gets home the quickest. The time was approximately between 9-10pm and the walk home
was approximately another 5 minutes from this place. The residential estate was dark but was lit up relatively well with street lighting. Anyway they
reluctantly agreed so as they set off through the housing estate to our house me and my brother began to walk along the main road towards our
At this time I was completely calm, relaxed and laughing with my brother. Anyway in mid conversation, I turned and looked across the road and as I did
a figure rose from from behind a bush. Although it was dark I could clearly make out the head and shoulders, but the figure was completely black. The
figure slowly rose and just kept still. As I observed it with my brother we both stood there looking at it. The figure continued to stand still
completely motionless. While I stared at it an uncontrollable fear took over my body. My brother broke down in tears. I turned to my brother and
shouted run, I dare not look back. As we ran home we continued to uncontrollably cry, I was a shivering wreck.
My parents were thankfully in the house and could clearly see myself and my brother were extremely shaken up. Till this day I will remember that
feeling of uncontrollable fear and vulnerability.
Now what makes me think this was a something beyond a human was two reasons;
1: As a child I was very adventorous and was rarely scared. Looking at the black figure absolutely terrified myself.
The weirdest part:
2: The bush itself is approximately 2ft high while the footpath rose behind it. I was almost looking up at this being as there is a slight verge
rising from the road, whereby the bush is near the top at the footpath is behind it (the highest point). The figure was certainly built like a man.
Now as I turned I saw the figure rise from a crouching position, as if he was bending down on his knees. Now how can a human man crouch behind a bush
only 2ft high? He would surely have to lie down?
The figure never flinched, never turned its head. It simply "rose" from the bush and froze. While I was observing the figure with my brother we
continued to walk but his head didnt turn, just starred at our original position from where we saw it.
Any more information needed Ill try to include. Im 19 years old now and the memory of that night stands very clearly in my mind. Me and my brother
both have exactly the same memory of events, and still feel terrified when talking about it. Recently Ive been experiencing a lot of dejavu linked to
recent dreams Ive been having. Anyway last night was my first "nightmare" where I recalled this figure. I have never had a bad dream since about
this figure and rarely think about it. I've came across this forum this morning and only thought about posting this story this morning aswell.
Any help would be appreciated,
