I have always questioned the paranormal and unexplained. With so much built on beliefs, stories, and opinions, before my experience, I would have called myself skeptic.
Two years ago from this November a friend and I had gone over to an acquaintance’s house to catch up on a long past due engagement. Our friend had been home from school and staying at his grandmas house for the weekend. His Grandmas house was a small house in the outskirts of town back on a gravel road that branched from country and county trunk roads. I had always found those roads a tad eerie at night but nothing more than a small feeling.
We had stayed for quite a few hours, long past dark, before saying our goodbyes and parting for the night. The minute we drove out of the drive way I felt weird but ignored it. We traveled down the gravel drive and on to a country road soon to be turning onto country trunk K. The road was dark. A fresh dark that only was visible by my headlights dancing 25 yards in front us off of the highway. We continued to chat and eventually hit an argument not paying attention to the road. I heard my friend, in the middle of our argument, stop and look straight ahead saying, “Dude” with a look of surprise.
I immediately swung my head around to find two images out of my peripheral vision. When I saw two young kids. One female, One male. The female looked to be bent over, possibly hurt or puking, and the male had been trying to get our attention. Jumping in the air but not making eye contact with my vehicle. Let me remind any of you readers that K is a remote road with few houses if any at all within 10 miles.
With first reactions of these young teens my stomach dropped and it seemed impossible to blink nor talk. We continued past them without saying a word as they disappeared back into the darkness of the highway for at least 50 feet. My friend asked if I should turn around, maybe they were hurt or their was a wreck we couldn’t see. I really didn’t want to but thought that maybe they needed help so I turned around about a quarter mile up the road.
We had both unbuckled our seatbelts and sat forward as if waiting to see the two come back into sight and there was nothing. We thought we might have passed them when something caught my eye moving from the ditch to the road. My heart fell once again one I noticed an individual dressed in blue jeans and a black hoodie made its way in the road. I will never forget the feeling I felt when an entirely different teen walked next to my moving vehicle and lifted his head at us. Making eye contact I was shot one of the meanest and evilest smiles I had ever seen. I couldn’t even see this young man’s face entirely but a set of eyes and an evil smile. I drove past sickly and looked at my friend not knowing what to say.
We didn’t go back a third time because of the feeling we had both experienced and didn’t want to even talk about it till we got back to his house. We talked about it quite a bit and waited to see if any news of an accident would come up but nothing did. We have since built up the courage to head back to the same spot to see nothing. We both felt the same way about what we had saw on that night.
About a month ago I had found out from a friend at work that quite a while ago two kids had gotten into a car accident a few miles up from the spot we had had our experience. Whether it had been the same kids or not I do not know. If so, who was this third kid we had seen and why did he direct such a look or smile that he had at us? The only thing I do know is that I will never forget the feeling I had felt seeing those kids and that smile. Truly and excitingly eerie.
Many of you may read my story and think it is false or made up but let me remind you I was just like you. Skeptic and not wanting to believe something with no true physical evidence, but this night changed my beliefs. I had always said you have to see to belief but let me assure you, be careful what you wish for because you may be in for a sight. A sight that will leave you unresponsive and a believer!
