Back in 1987ish, I lived in a big two story apartment with a basement. The basement was smaller than the rest of the apartment and was converted into
a play room for me. I'd spend hours down there. One day, I realized something was with me. I couldn't see or hear it, but you know how you feel
when someone is standing behind you looking over your shoulder? That's the feeling I had.
I wasn't scared, and I felt like I wanted to meet whoever this was. For some reason, I wanted to coax it to my room at the far end of the hall on
the second story so I could trap it. I went into the kitchen and got some Lucky Charms. I laid a single Lucky Charms marshmellow on each step
leading up to the small landing and than to the left up the rest of the stairs and eventually into my room.
What happens next freaks me out even to this day. I sat patiently for what seemed like an eternity. I eventually started getting anxious thinking
nothing was going to happen. A few seconds pass and I start hearing a little crunching sound. It stops for a second, than starts again. It stops
for a second again and than starts again. I was wondering what it was doing until I realized it of course had to stop at each step of the way to
collect the marshmellows.
It got closer as the munching sounds got louder. I could see something moving behind the rails that looked down towards the landing and the rest of
the stairs. It then came up the final step and that's when it saw me, froze and just like that, vanished.
I can tell you the colors of our walls, the layout of the floor plan. I can recall how many bushes we had out front and where this apartment was even
to this day. But despite remembering all that, I cannot remember what this thing looked like, besides being my size and kinda hunched over. Any
other details have eluded me.
Now, could this have been the work of a child with an over hyper imagination? Absolutely. But remember those Lucky Charms I had put on each step?
They were gone. The only Lucky Charms went from my room to the top of the stairs where whatever it was disappeared.
I've had quite a few things like this happen to me. I can remember all of it down to the last detail. (Except in this case when it comes to whatever
I had met.)
Just wanted to share this as this is something that I've often thought about growing up.
