#1. Mystery Juice

“I was laying on my couch watching tv and glanced up and noticed a glass of orange juice sitting on a table across the room. I thought, “hmm, that’s weird, I don’t remember pouring a glass of juice”. Then “wait, I don’t even have juice. Someone is in my house and they bought a glass of juice with them!” Then I realized it was an unlit yellow candle.”

#2. “I hear this chilling screamy screech…”

“One of those awesome spring/summer nights, I couldn’t sleep and had the windows open. I was sitting in the living room by one of the windows just enjoying the breeze and decide that it’s an absolutely lovely night, the moon is full, and I’m going to go out in the way back of my yard to my sitting spot to soak in and enjoy the evening if I’m not going to be sleeping. I took my phone with me for the flashlight. So I’m sitting out there, listening to the breeze, night bugs and quietly burbling creek when I hear this chilling screamy screech that just sends a massive shot of adrenaline through me. I fumble my phone out and direct the flashlight in the direction of the woods. I pan it around and there is a set of eyes reflecting back at me. Thoroughly freaked out, I run back in the house. Now I’ve lived in the middle of nowhere in the woods my whole life and I have never heard anything like that in my life. After that incident, I’d hear it from time to time in the middle of the night when we had the windows open. I dub it the soul stealer. I have no clue what this thing could be. Fast forward to last summer. My husband and I go to his grandparents lake house. We were sitting on the deep screened in porch right as the sun was going down and we see a few deer come right up to the porch almost, a mom and two babies. We are being super quiet so we don’t scare them but something scares them anyway. Mama throws up her tail and lets loose with…you guessed it…that unholy screech. In all my rural life I’d never heard a deer noise. I didn’t even think they made noise.”

#3. Pretty Clothes

“This day after a few days of zero sleep. I saw my cat sitting on top of my dresser at about 4 in the morning. I couldn’t figure out why she wouldn’t move, so I went up to her and petted her for a solid minute until my cat walked into my room. I had been petting my folded clothes. Love insomnia.”

#4. ” We should take his soul now…”

“I hadn’t slept for 2 and a half days, was finishing up one of my shifts at work and I started hearing voices and seeing things. It was beyond terrifyIng. Nothing like hallucinations of pictures eyes moving, seeing shadow figures stalking you while saying “he’s to tired to pay attention” and ” we should take his soul now”. Ahhh the good old days.”

#5. Concrete Jungle?

“I couldn’t sleep one night and was out on my front porch when a huge mountain lion ran down the street. I live in the city.”

#6. I’d Go With The Hug

“About my Grandpa: He lives alone, and was lying in bed one night with an uneasy feeling. He just felt like something was wrong. He’s very hard of hearing, and it was bedtime so obviously he didn’t have his hearing aids in. It was pitch-black dark, and a little windy in the small Georgia town so it had that eerie feel. Time passes and he felt more and more worried. At one point he felt like someone was in the room with him. He hollared out “Go on! Get!” and sinked down to bed. At this point, he could tell there was a face staring right at him, next to the bed. He pulled the covers up over his head and started praying for God to let him live through the night, absolutely terrified. About this time he heard the slobbery huff. The bulldog he kept in the basement had somehow got out and was exploring the house. She was a good dog, he just kept her in the basement to keep her from tearing stuff up at night. To this day he claims he had to decide between strangling the dog and giving her a hug.”
