New Years Eve, this year was terrible. It was the beggining of eighth grade and most of my friends started getting into trouble or getting arrested. I had to get away. So for New Years I went to my aunts house who lives in the NC mountains. It smelled of relief and joy. The people who lived there were so friendly in the past years, but when I got up there tons of new looking houses that had people living in them at one time had for sale signs in the yard. We arrived at my Aunts and she gave hugs that followed with expensive gifts since we dont see her much and later some of the rest of my fun family came. But when we finaly got settled in that night she said very fearsly  "EVERYONE INSIDE". We all came in, but it was only 5 o`clock,the ball didnt drop until 12. Anyways we all came in curious of what the reason was. The last person came in and she locked the door and shut the blinds and said for everyone to be very quiet. We all looked at each other, my cousin blurted out "what up with this". She said in a voice that sounded terrified and mad at the same time "SHUT UP". But she was the nicest person I had ever met, and she never said anything like that to someone. Later that day after we could all go out again we were called in to the the big arrival of 2016. Everyone went inside but I stayed outside, I sat there for a minute to take a few breaths when I saw something in the woods behind the house. I thought it could have been someone from the party but after a minute the "person" just kept walking sort of "odd". With a weird limp the person noticed me, they were behind a bush, about 16ft away. I called out, "hello". Then they turned there head, it was pale and very disturbing because the veins in their head were poping out. It had not eyes but little black slits where eyes could be, but it had a... "stare", something soul pearcing. All of a sudden a burst of terror struck my heart like a knife. I smelt it and it almost made me puke. I turned around to run inside and I heard the door lock and I saw the blinds close and the noise inside stoped. I yelled for them to let me in. Not a sound. I ran around the house, knowing that person, no, a "thing" was in those woods. I got to the front door, it was locked and the smell got worse and worse. As I turned around in the dark of the night and only the faint light of an old light post on the steet eluminated just the face of the wicked thing that was limping towards me.I didnt make a move, suddenly it stoped 5ft in front of me. The thing suddenly looked confuesed, like it didnt know where I was or something. It then turned around and limped off into the woods. I heard the door open and I was pulled inside. The whole night I asked what it was to my aunt, now knowing why people moved and why she was acting very strange. She wouldnt give me an answer so I just gave up. When I finally got back home the next day I got out of my car and went to walk inside, it was dark and my folks were already in, I smelt something. I looked behind me and saw the same creature that I saw in the mountains. It had followed me home. And it was staring right at me...
