Reader Submission: Spirit Animals

“I used to work with dying, elderly patients. I had lots of experiences on the night shift, but one was particularly creepy and strange.

A patient I had was passing. At the end of my shift, I said, ‘Now don’t you go nowhere. I’ll be back tomorrow night.’ She just shook her head no. The next night on the way to work, I saw three black dogs near a curve in the road. They stared right at me. They looked like wolves. This was strange, and I was scared and confused because there shouldn’t have been any in the area.

I got to work and learned that my patient had passed. I took a picture while cleaning up, and to my surprise, it was a picture of the wolves I had seen. My patient was an advocate for wolves in Oregon, and in the picture were the three animals I saw near the curve at the exact time she died. After that, I never asked patients to wait until I returned.”

5 Creepy Tales of Imaginary Friends

Imaginary friends. Pretend playmates? Or something more sinister? The five creepy tales below come from Reddit.com and show that imaginary friends aren’t always the stuff of make believe.

The Girl in the Closet

“When my daughter was three she had an imaginary friend named Kelly who lived in her closet. Kelly sat in a little rocking chair while she slept, played with her, etc. Typical imaginary friend shit. Anyway, fast forward two years, the wife and I are watching the new Amityville (the one with Ryan Reynolds) and our daughter walks out right when dead girl goes all black eyed. Far from being disturbed she said ‘That looks like Kelly.’ ‘Kelly who?’ we say ‘You know the dead girl that lived in my closet.'” – Original thread

Reader Submission: Haunted Bedroom

“When I was about 7 years old, I shared a room with my younger brother. One night, we were going to bed. After we turned out the lights and tucked ourselves into our beds, I saw a blue flash above our beds. It stayed for about a few seconds, but it was almost as if my eyes were playing tricks on me. It was almost as if someone had taken a picture and that lingering blob light thing was in front of my face.

At first, I thought it was nothing. However, my brother said out loud in a scared voice ‘Hey, did you see that blue flash?’. I couldn’t believe he saw it too. We have no idea what it was, but we both saw it so I wasn’t imagining things.

Later on in the year in that same room, we were again in bed, and my brother was asleep, but I was lying awake. Out of nowhere, my lunch kit that was on top of my dresser flew off, hit the garbage bin, and then fell to the floor. I was so scared I pulled the covers over my head. I let some time pass hoping whatever it was, was gone. However, later (maybe 30 minutes later) something else fell and hit the floor. To this day, I have no idea what was going on in my room.”

Reader Submission: A Brother’s Visit

weird shadow

“It was around 6th grade when I was about 11 or 12. My sister and I shared a bedroom, and we had both fallen asleep in the same twin-sized bed. It was around 2:30 a.m. when I randomly woke up and turned to see a shadow at the foot of the bed, facing my way.

It was glowing slightly blue, but very transparent. It was a male who looked anywhere from 19-26 years old. We just stared at each other for a while, eyes completely locked, both of us frozen. I wasn’t scared until I blinked and suddenly he wasn’t there anymore.
