This story has never been heard by anyone. I chose not to say anything because I know what happens when you tell someone you have seen a demon.
7 years ago when I was just 12 years old something happened to me that I will never forget. My life was altered that cold windy night. A few friends and I were playing hide and seek, like most little boys do. The neighbors did not care if we played in their yard, and there was a church next to that. We had plenty of room to play a good game of hide and seek, flash-light addition. It just so happened it was my turn to be the seeker. I had given everyone approximately 4 minutes to hide, we counted in the garage with the door securely shut. My 4 minutes were about up so I began my quest to find my friends, but that was not what I found at all.
I started going towards the church in search for them, but then doubled back. I was hoping I would catch them quick. I started walking down the tree line in my friends back yard. This was approximately 50 yards from the garage where I started. I heard some rustling in the woods, so I knew I found someone. Slowly creeping up on the sound all I could see was branches and tree trunks. Going deeper and deeper into the woods I began to feel like someone was watching me, but I knew it was not my friends. I just sensed like it was something else, so I started to get out of there, fast. I finally was out of the woods, and I then started to walk even further down the tree line. I heard that same noise again, so of course, I went back in to see what it was. I probably walked 15 feet into the woods again, and that is when I saw it…
My flashlight was aimed at the ground so I could see where I was going. The noise was about 15 feet in front of me. I slowly lifted my light upwards. I began to see strange grey feet, legs and a back. I dropped my light instantly. With only the moon as my light, I saw this shadow turn around. Standing motionless in front of me was a creature that I had only seen in horror films. It was about 6 foot 6. I can only describe this thing as being a demon. It had wings that were tucked behind itself, because I saw them before I dropped my flashlight. His arms were at his side. I could not make out facial features very well. I hate to sound cliche, but it did have glowing red eyes. It was a very faint glow, but a glow none the less.
At this point I was frozen with fear. All I knew was I had to get out of there. I slowly began to step backwards. Trying not to make a sound, but I knew my cover was blown. It still remained motionless as I was doing this. I was almost out now, and I could hear sticks breaking so I knew it was moving. When I heard that I started running out of there. I was standing in the backyard now, when I heard this loud swooping noise, like a giant bird taking off. I turned around and saw the most incredible thing I had ever seen in my life. This great creature was flying towards the moon and I could see it very large wingspan. It disappeared very quickly.
I was standing in the middle of the lawn speechless looking at the sky. I forgot we were even playing hide and seek at this point. I just walked back to the house and sat on the steps. Maybe 10 minutes later my friends came walking up asking me what I was doing. I guess they saw me sitting there from there hiding spot. They thought I had given up or something. I told them I was not feeling very well. Not letting on what I had seen. So we all went back inside. The rest of the night all I could think about was that creature. What was it? What did it want? Where did it come from? These were the things I was thinking of.
The next day I decided to draw, as best I could, what I saw…
A few days ago I was reading a story that I saw on “stumble upon” it was about people who have seen some pretty weird things. And this thing sounded like what I saw that night 7 years ago. What really gave me goose bumps (and I’m getting them now, for just thinking about it) is there was a a drawing that the witness had drawn… it looked exactly like what I drew.
There was a few more stories about this creature with even more drawings that looked like mine. They all called this thing, “moth man”
now I do not know if what I saw was the same thing all these other people saw, but I do know I saw something that I can not fully explain. I do not plan on telling my friends or family about this, because they would just laugh at me. I know what I saw, that is all that matters to me.
