Berlin ,2006, October .
I was walkin in Berlin, goin back home , the sky was extremly grey, almost black and the rain was the kind announcing a cold winter, the type of rain
makin its way thru your coat.
I Was wearing a black coat made to carry ammos and stuff (old military cloak, made to hide rifles, used during WWII by germans snipers)
On my way home i decide to take a shortcut because i was really feeling too cold and really the only thing i wanted was a hot cup of coffee
The shortcut was located near a very old railway, used during WWII
i started to walk in the abandoned field, walking thru the garbages, starting to think it wasnt a so good idea finally.
Near the ruins of some buildings (never demolished, still here now)
I saw my reflection in a mirror or a old glass door stored here, and realised what the hell was that piece of glass was doing here, undamaged
I walked near the ruins to take a look and noticed it wasnt a piece of glass , nor my reflection, but a real person.
I came closer, silently because nobody know who you can meet on that area .
I got the scare of my life.
I saw a man, dressed as a SS officer, i stupidly asked to the man if he was doing a movie or anythings.
the person didnt moved from the shadow, then i looked away for ONE second , turned my head back to him and saw him litteraly fade in the wall
Right after that, i made my way back in the street, trying to go away from that shortcut to my house..
i felt something like intense fear mixed with deep sadness , but my main feeling is FEAR, just pure fear, the type of fear who tell you"ok its not
norrmal, it cant be possible"
never again i took that shortcut
