The last two stories remind me of something that a friend’s family experienced. This may even deserve its own thread, but it is all about weird
beasts, so I guess this will suffice.
This occurred in central MA and the family did not tell the media or want to draw attention. They only told close friends and family. I was good
friends with one of the sons, and knew the other one as well, and I have no reason to think they would make anything up. This took place circa
1985-1990. I do not think it is fair for me to reveal the town or street.
The two brothers and their friends, several of which I knew, all reported seeing shimmering, see-through, silvery-colored beings in the woods behind
the house. When the Predator movie came out, they said the things they saw resembled what was in the movie. I only saw the movie once, so I really
don’t recall the specifics. The beings looked human-shaped, but were very fast and agile on the rare occasions that the kids tried chasing them. I
recall one time they said that one of the beings climbed a tree about as fast as a cat would, then disappeared. The sightings happened several times
over the course of a few years, to the point where the boys were over their fears and were more intrigued. But each incident lasted only a minute or
so, and the beings moved so fast that the boys’ efforts to pursue them never went far.
The parents told the kids that it was all in their imagination.
Meanwhile, the parents did see these beings as well as others in the house, and did not tell the kids so the kids would not be scared. That all came
to an end one night, I believe it was around Christmas, when the extended family was over for a holiday celebration. In full view of a large gathering
in the living room, something that my friends described as looking like “a hairless cat walking on its hind legs” came out from behind something,
ran across the room, behind a piece of furniture, and disappeared. Everyone screamed and ran out of the room. Once they calmed down, the family that
lived there packed as much of their belongings as they could fit into the vehicles that were there (plenty, as there were many family members there
for the gathering), left the house and never set foot in it again. I mean, never, not for one moment. The kids were just suddenly out of school for
about a week, and when they came back they refused to tell anyone what had happened for a long time. Trust me, this family did not and does not want
any sort of attention from these incidents. I believe it really happened and that they just wanted to put the experiences behind them.
I have never heard of anything else happening since then on that property. Satellite imagery reveals nothing unusual about it or the nearby woods. It
did not have many owners in a few years, or any other signs that people kept fleeing something there.
Nearly twenty years later, I was a passenger in a friend’s car and another passenger was a gentleman who had for years claimed to have all kinds of
paranormal abilities, ability to interact with unseen entities, and whatnot…things my friends and I generally took with a grain of salt. I did not
realize that we were driving by the house described above, as it was just a normal place for me to pass by. Just as we approached the house, the guy
with the alleged paranormal sensitivity started freaking out and panicking. He wouldn’t say why but he started looking all around as if searching
for something. He started screaming to “get out of here” and told my friend who was driving to drive faster. When we asked why, he said he
wasn’t sure, but he thought that “demons” were trying to draw him to something. He didn’t know where they wanted him to go and he claimed he
didn’t see them, just sensed them. When the house was out of sight, he relaxed and calmed down again. For some reason I did not tell him about the
stories about that house. In retrospect I should have, and asked for more information that he may have sensed. At the moment I think I was just glad
that he was calm again and I did not want to upset him.
