The strange thing is when you have a true story that is truly terrifying no ones seems to bat an eye.
My Grandmother had a very terrifying experience and she was not an imaginative person, when she told us about it, she was deadly serious.
When she was in her late teens she had a best friend, who lived outside the small town they lived in in New mexico in the desert. It was in the
1800's and the place was rough.
Her best friend came to town only once a month or so to buy a few things, they were very poor, they lived almost completely off the farm they had in
the boonies. The family had bought the place and built a small house with just two rooms, a long room where they all slept had a door to the outside
and a main room with a door in the front. Like everyone then, they had an outhouse the bedroom door let you go out to it easily.
The family had a bunch of kids, I think it was 5 and the best friend was the oldest girl, she had a brother close to her age, the others were younger
down to the little one who was four.
The brother and father hunted rabbit and deer often, usually getting rabbit for stew. One day they went out hunting and there just were no rabbits
which was very unusual, both of them also felt a strange fear sensation and decided to go home with nothing.
That night when everyone was in their beds which lined the single room on both sides, the mother heard a noise, she thought one of the kids was just
up to use the outhouse because the door was open and the moonlight streaming in.
The Mother looked down the room and saw the kids were asleep but then she saw a strange thing which terrified her! There was what looked like a
gray wolf but standing on two legs it's front legs dangled in the air, it was not walking but floating above the floor, it moved down the line of her
kids soundlessly turning it's head back and forth in what they said was a mechanical way.
When it reached the last bed with her youngest daughter and one sister in it, it stopped and seemed to be staring at the youngest girl. the woman to
scared to move had woken the Father and he watched in silence also, they were to afraid to move even though he kept a gun by the bed. After staring at
the girl for a long while the thing floated to the door and without touching it the door closed behind it.
The next morning the little girl was very sick, the whole family took her to town to the Dr. and the oldest girl went to my grandmothers house and
told her what happened that night. The Dr said that he could find nothing wrong with the girl, but she was vomiting and no fever and he said she must
have eaten something bad and would be fine.
She died the next day. The family left town with only their wagon and what they wore into town, they left their farm and everything behind, to afraid
to go back. My grandmother said she cried as there were no other girls close to her age around, so her only friend was leaving.
True story, my grandmother was an honest woman and this story is to weird to make up.
