Subject: My Story

I live next to a canyon that has a church in it called Blackstar. You can only imagine what goes on there. Of course, no one really knows; we've only heard stories of the activities its congregation performs. Me and my friends have noticed that the shadow people in the area are more dense and more populated the closer you are to the church grounds. Based on that, we believe that Shadow People are a kind of side effect of concentrated evil. We have hundreds of reports of seeing the Shadow People on the side of the road, turning off the street lamps, and appearing to us in numerous places with a cat-eye-like glow in their eyes. But you asked for a specific instance, so here is one:

It was me and a few friends of mine driving around, doing what normal people in their young twenties like to do: to have loud, chaotic fun. We parked in a parking lot next to a local gas station and noticed that there was a path way leading to a tunnel we had never noticed before. So being bored out of our minds and really hyper, we decided to explore the tunnel and where it led to. As we were walking towards the tunnel, the closer we got, the quieter we became. We were starting to get a feeling that something wasn’t quite right about this pathway but we decided to go against our gut feelings and walk farther. We reached the mouth of the tunnel and it came into our view at the other end of the tunnel. The Shadow Person was big, cloaked, and had red glowing eyes. I thought it might have been an animal, maybe a coyote, but six feet off the ground? We knew what it was in an instant and we all were paralyzed with fear, until it started to move towards us. It didn't walk, it floated, but we couldn't see any feet; it was too dark. We didn't hear it make any noises or smelled anything coming off of it. Needless to say, we ran as fast as we could, got in our car and sped off to the local diner where it was really bright and warm. Blackstar was only five miles away from the tunnel, so we knew that it was manning some kind of post to watch for people or other beings. That was one of the theories floating around between us, but we didn't really know what it was doing; it's not like we stopped to ask. We just assumed it was a territory thing.

Now I know what you're thinking. 'They just had a bad trip on something and all saw the same thing'. But I don't do drugs, I never have, it's just not my thing. And I was driving so I had to be completely sober. I can't speak for my friends but I assumed they were sober as well. I was with them all night so it's not like they could go and do a binge without me seeing. Needless to say, if they were high or drunk, which I doubt, it was definitely a sobering experience.
