“I usually walk to school (11th grade) in the morning, and the path I take is not the biggest paranormal hub in the world. A few weeks ago, however, I had the first otherworldly experience of my life. It was about 7:10 a.m. in Erlanger, Ky. and I was about 300 feet from my house. It is a street with several homes, so I usually don’t pay attention to my surroundings, but that day something was weird. I had a feeling of fear and paranoia. Something caught my eye when this tension was at its peak.
In a tree across the street from me there was a tall creature standing on a fairly high branch. It looked a lot like a very skinny man, but it was completely pitch black from what I could tell. Its face had only two little red slits that I think were eyes. No mouth or nose or ears. It was hunched over. One hand held the main section of the tree and the other held the creature’s foot. It was staring at me. I was paralyzed with fear and just stared at the creature.
After a couple of minutes, I got up the courage to move again and I shakingly continued to school. A really odd thing is that I had a weird feeling on my chest for the next two days. It kind of felt like mineral ice. Anyway, I wrote to this sight because I need to tell someone. I wouldn’t think anyone at this site would call me a liar or a madman.”
