A Ghostly Animal in the Forest

electra-era submitted:

This isn’t too scary of a story– but it is completely true, and it’s mainly just my one “big” experience with something paranormal.

Just to set up a little background: it was last year (I’m in high school), and I had forgotten my textbook at school, but luckily, my friend lives down the street from me and is in the same grade as me. I also live in a suburban city/town, but my house and street is situated alongside a small forest. I used to go and play in the forest all the time, but I sort of grew out of that (and it kind of creeped me out. There are also wild dogs in my town, so I was afraid they lived in there. This isn’t relevant to my story, though). My friend lives on another part of my street basically, a part that isn’t by the forest and is well lit with a lot of houses.

Anyways, it was probably around 9:00 or 9:30 PM in the early fall, so it was pitch black out. I let my friend know that I was going to run over to her house and get her textbook from her, as I needed it for an assignment. I grabbed a flashlight from our laundry room and then headed out the backdoor. Since my street is next to a forest, it’s fairly tucked away from any business at all, and there is only one street light on the entire street, the street itself gets very dark at night. I was always kind of freaked out when I had to walk alone on it at night, as the ominous forest is literally touching one side of the road, and you can’t see past the first few bushes and trees. It’s a very creepy atmosphere, especially with the one faint street light.

I had made it as far as my next door neighbor’s front lawn when I clicked on the flash light and shined in across and down the street a bit to the forest. To my utter shock and slight horror, a large figure (about the size of a deer, but a bit larger and not the right shape or outline) appeared in the light of my flash light. It was standing about 50 yards away from me. It had this strange whitish/green glow about it, but it was very subtle to the point where I wasn’t sure what it exactly was. Right as I shined the light on it, it began racing down the street a bit (a bit more in my direction) with an extremely fast pace and then disappeared into the forest. 

At this point, I had tears in my eyes and I was freaking out a bit. I’m maybe a bit of a paranoid wuss, but this was unearthly. I had never seen anything like it before. I wanted to turn back and just forget about the textbook all together, but I convinced myself that I needed to get the book so I could finish my homework. So, I broke into a full on sprint until I got to a more well lit part of the street. I got my book from my friend’s house and then called my dad to meet me at my friend’s house so he would walk me home.

To this day I’m still not sure what I saw. It wasn’t a deer or a wild dog, it was something entirely different. Not human– it was something entirely different from our every day world. I’m a bit scared to walk alone on my street at night now.
