We Never Spoke Of It

I was stationed out west when i was in the army. One night, we were out for a field training exercise in the middle of nowhere. We were sleeping in tents and i was sharing with one other person. It was a little after one in the morning when we were both woken up by a strange sound. “Did you hear something?” she whispered to me. There was an open window in our tent and there were still perimeter lights on. I could see her eyes were so wide the whites were showing all around. I nodded and we both sat up in our cots, listening for the sound again. “I could have sworn I heard a horse nearby,” she said. We waited a bit when i realized there was a different sound than what had awoken us. It was the sound of metal jangling against each other. “What IS that?” I asked her in a low voice. She shrugged. “I’m going to go see what it is. Maybe a horse got loose from one of the farms nearby.” I said as I tugged on my boots and put my shirt on. “I’m going with you.” She said as she scrambled into her uniform. We both grabbed our caps and walked out of the tent. We both froze as we saw a man on a horse not ten feet from us. Neither of us said a word as we realized there was something off about the guy. For one thing, his eyes and the eyes of his horse seemed to glow. The other part was that he was wearing an old civil war era cavalry uniform. He was staring at us. Nothing moved for at least 5 minutes. Then the perimeter lights dimmed slightly. They were on a generator so maybe they were running out of fuel. At the same time the guy just faded away. Still staring at us. The two of us looked at each other, then went back inside the tent and went back to sleep.

James: 7/10 I like how specific the ghost is! Thanks for sharing the scares!
