So last night around 11pm, I took my dog outside before going to sleep... just like every other day. Normally, I have no fear of the dark. I'll walk
my dog around the entire block in the middle of the night without any worries or trepidations whatsoever. But last night was.... different.
It was dark (obviously), wet from the earlier rain, and a little hazy with fog. For some reason, the second I stepped outside, I was afraid. It
didn't make sense to me until I looked towards the street.
I don't really know how to describe the experience well. It was like I could "see" the presence of something. Physically, there was nothing there.
But I "felt" like I could "see" it anyway. Standing in the middle of the road was a creature about 8 feet tall, standing very rigidly upright,
staring at me. It almost reminded me of a cross between Sebulba
(the head and texture, not
the body or the silly helmet) and an arakkoa
(the body, not the feathers or beak). It never
moved; it just stood completely still, watching me. It was a very intimidating pose and just seemed to be intently observing me. It was not naked.
Though I wasn't able to make out the exact clothing, it was wearing some kind of dark, thin robe, possibly slightly tattered.
I walked my dog down the block, let him do his business, then took him back towards the house. It still hadn't moved; I could still "see" it, even
though I could also see that there was nothing there at all. Now that I think of it, there was a strange type of howling, like a sick or hurt dog or
something, way off in the distance, though I don't believe it was related. All that I could feel was an intense fear and the desire to get back
Has anyone had any similar experiences? Can anyone tell me what I seem to have "seen" without seeing? I don't really believe in the supernatural
and it seems illogical for any type of being to just be standing in the middle of a road like that, but if anyone has any input, I'd greatly
