Hi! This is a thread where you tell scary, freaky, creepy stories! They can be REAL and TRUE or FAKE and MADE-UP. Please remember to tell us whether it's real or made-up. Everybody needs a good creeping-out every once in a while, right? I'll start. This is one of the stories that my neighbors, my sister and I tell down by the river at night to scare each other: "One time, there was a group of 4 kids, just like us, that liked to go fishing at night. They were fishing one late night in July when they heard a shrill screeching noise. It scared them, but they made almost nothing of it. 'just a screech owl' said the eldest one calmly. Then they caught sight of a huge, black shadow across the bank, by The Cove of the Cursed Headstone (a real place that we named because of a large random rock in the middle of it). The kids saw two, glowing red eyes and decided to go investigate with flashlights. They waded across the river when the shape moved and was hidden again. 'Its no use' they decided. They waded back across the river, where, waiting for them, stood the sahadowy figure with the glowing red eyes. It opened it's hideous mouth and let out an ear piercing shreak. It had two large, black wings and hair on its body. It was no use to run, because the figure was large and had long legs. It catured the kids and they were nevr seen again." Now, its your turn! I can't wait to hear your scary stories!
