Okay, so I’ve been reading paranormal stuff (because I enjoy that, for whatever reason) and I decided to share probably the most creepy experience I’ve ever had. (I’ve had a few, but this is the biggest and most bizarre.)
To set the scene, I live next to one house and then there’s this hill that’s overgrown with weeds and other grasses. We live on a business road, but it’s not super busy. No sidewalks, just road and then dirt and the hill.
Well, one night, I took my dog out in the backyard and heard what sounded like a puppy in pain or scared. I could tell it was coming from the hill next to my neighbor’s and shined my flashlight in that general direction, but couldn’t see anything at the distance. I mentioned it to my dad when I went back in but he said to leave it (not uncompassionately, but it just wasn’t realistic to think that we could do anything).
The sound went on for quite awhile until I couldn’t take it anymore. I pulled on my boots and grabbed a flashlight and headed out. I walked out to the base of the hill and shined my flashlight up to where I thought the sound was coming from. I tried to go up the hill, but there was too much undergrowth to get up there. So I stood down by the road, at the base of the hill, and just shined my flashlight up the hill and called to the dog. (Just calling things like, “come here; come on, puppy” and patting my leg and whistling a little.) Suddenly, the whining of the dog stops and I hear plants rustling like something is running down the hill. I can literally track the sound as it goes down the hill, but I can’t see anything, even though I’m shining my flashlight there. The thing breaks from all the weeds, right at my feet. I shine my light on my feet, around my feet, up and down the street – nothing. There is NOTHING there. No more sounds, either; dead silent.
I noped right out of there and went home.
I’ve never had an experience like it since.
