Strange journey through one snowy and cold winter night

Cold winter night

 

I used to live in a small town called South Park. The town lay just beneath a big mountain near one small river. You could say that people were not very open minded and many of them believed in some strange things. I was that guy who didn’t really believe in tales that were popular there. I always used to rationalize things but one strange occurrence changed everything.

I used to hang out with my friend Michael back then. One morning he invited me to his place for pizza and video games. Of course I accepted immediately. Snow was really falling hard  that day but it didn’t bother me. I loved snow.

I set off at about seven. Everything seemed all right until I reached the bridge that separated one side of village. When I was about to cross it, I suddenly felt a strange sensation, something that I’d never felt before. My legs started to shake, cold sweat rushed down my forehead and my heart started pounding. I felt as if someone was watching me.

I sped up and was soon on the other side. Everything seemed normal for a while. Just when Michael’s house was in sight I heard a strange noise, as if someone was walking behind me. I stopped and turned back to see who it was but no one was there. I resumed my journey only to see that everything was black. There were no stars in the sky, no moon and no lights. I started panicking, the air was so heavy. I thought that my end was near, as if I was already dead and in some kind of a purgatory waiting to be dealt with. Suddenly, I felt a touch on my shoulder.

A stocky man spoke to me. I didn’t even recognize him at first.Honestly, you could have knocked me down with a feather. When I looked into his face I was about to scream out of happiness. It was Michael’s dad and according to his words I had taken a wrong turn and ended up near an old unmarked graveyard. Everything was so strange, I never get lost. What was he doing there?

Oh this was an interesting little creepy story! I love the cliffhanger ending! Does that mean there is gonna be a second part to this short story? Like is this an ongoing kind of connected short story thing? If so that'd be really cool! If not that's awesome to you left us with so many questions! It's always crazy how something as normal as walking over to your friends house can end in something as creepy as their dad somehow ending up on the same creepy path as you :/ I'm shocked 30 people have read this but nobody has commented yet! Sometimes booksie can be a stick in the mud but for the most part the community is pretty awesome this def deserves more love you have talent! :)

Thank you for your kind words :) The original idea was to leave it all up to reader. I just wanted to stimulate people's imagination. But now I am seriously thinking about continuing the story :)
