My Weird Drive Home
It was a dark stormy night, Isn't that how all horror stories start? I was driving home from work eager to get home. I had to stay late at work. It was 8:00 and already getting dark out. I live out of town about hour drive.
After ten minutes of silence I turned on the radio. Nothing. I thought that was weird I always get a signal. I kept driving about 30 minutes or so into driving I start to notice some weird thing like: no other cars on the road and the trees looked different.
You may be thinking 'how do I know what the trees look like?” But I made this drive many times, I knew what every tree looks like but these trees looked different. I did not take a wrong turn, at least I did think I did.
I was driving for about a hour, Then I saw it, it was a deer with three antlers. Thinking to myself what the fuck I speed up wanting to get home. I start to see that the route I took is not going to get me home so I turn around. After a few minutes I see that it is not what I saw before . I keep going hoping that I can make it back to the highway. After 30 minutes I know that I'm hopelessly lost. So I pull over to try and use my GPS. It showed me I'm on a street called Black-Water. I never heard of it before.
It showed me to keep going down the road. So that is what I did. I sat there trying to get up my never to keep driving down the dark and lonely road. Then I hear a small taping sound. Tap... Tap... Tap.... over and over again. I checked my rear view mirror and saw a man. Well more like a outline of one. I could see no face or clothing. Just blackness.
I speed right out of there. Going as fast as my small car could take me. It was pitch black out I could not see two feet in front of me, even with my brights on. I then felt a big bump on the road. I knew I hit something. Not wanting to go out and check I started to drive away looking back I saw two glowing red eyes, staring at my car. The sky started to get lighter which was weird because my clock read 10:00 PM. By now the sky was a pinkish purple. It was so dam weird.
I just kept driving. Finally I started to see houses and trees I recognized I was back on my normal route I made no turns. Going 60 over the speed limit I made it home in record time. I get in and the time on the stove shows it is only 9:12, the time I usually get home at. Not caring about the time I get ready to go to bed. When I was laying down I heard a taping sound at the window Tap...Tap... Tap... Not wanting to look out the window of fear of seeing the black figure again I just closed my eyes tight and went to sleep.
