What The Hell Is That?

 

In 1996 my brother Chris and I rented out an old ranch house dating back to the 1800s out in Adkins Texas. Just outside of San Antonio. It sat on about 17 acres with a graveyard dating back to the civil war, Mount olive cemetery to be exact. We would hear stories from people in town about the place but we never really gave it too much thought. Yeah there was the occasional thing out of place for no right reasons but not enough to set off alarms. But that would all change on this one Particular night.

We had not long turned to our rooms for the night when I was awakened by a friend of ours that stayed the night. Mike, Mike, get up quick... (In a desperate whisper) and bring your gun. I got up, reached under my bed and grabbed the nearest riffle to me. Then walked nervously to the front room and met up with Chris and our friend. Chris had already been looking out the window when I walked into the room. I will never ever forget the look on his face as he turned towards me and whispered "WHAT THE HELL IS THAT"?

I leaned over to the old single pane window looked out and all was bathed in the brightest moonlight I had ever seen. And there it was someone or something passing in between all of our trucks almost gliding... Hell it was gliding. It was the figure of a man, a man from a long time ago he had on overalls and a large brimmed hat. But you could not make out his face, just a black void. Then something else dawned on us, the thing had no feet... Noo feet. It just floated there looking into the vehicles. Then stood there gazing at us as hard as anyone could gaze without a Face. Now the time came for us to bring reality or whatever on this thing... Chris looked at me and said, "on three we go" 1...2... THREE! Out the door we rushed half scared shooting in the direction of this thing...BOOM! POW! POW!...BOOM! The thing was now gliding swiftly towards the bottleneck driveway Which was a half a mile long with open field on either side of it... We grabbed the keys to one of the trucks and ripped it up the long driveway spotlighting all over and the thing just vanished,, you don't understand,, there was nowhere for it to go. Absolutely nowhere! But up or down.

Well after 30 minutes of searching flat ground we headed back up to the house no one saying a word for quite some time. I was thinking to myself did this just happen? But reality hit hard when Chris shook his head once again flicking his cigarette And said WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT?...

This is a true story, very true. The house unfortunately burned down not long after that. We still to this day get a chill talking about that night and feel lucky I guess to experience something like that in our lifetime...

The house was on rakowitz rd. And mount olive cemetery is right behind the place, and strange things are said to go on there to this day... Do the research, maybe you will see for yourself. Thanks for listening, and goodnight.

well I wouldn't want to call to your house looking for directions... I might be in danger of getting shot... Do you shoot everyone who comes to your house?

When I moved to TN into a newly built house, my family and I experienced similar aperitions. Our experiences degenerated into absolute hell. We contacted a paranormal investigation group. They came out a few times and said we had a portal in our house. I do understand your desire to shoot it, I'd do the same and tried to but my mom stopped me. Guess patching the walls for taking pot shots at the dead isn't fun lol.

Haha, classic English you got there, lol. I would probably scream the same exact thing. Pretty spooky experiance, but you should probably have expected something like that to happen, living on old property and all. I might look into that old ranch house though... Thanks for the post!

Uh-huh, Spooky.

If you shoot at the neighbor for interupting an intimate moment with your sister, you might be a redneck.

Spooky: Great story!...I agree with cosmo that it may have been the keeper of the cemetery...

And sorry 😆, but I do have to ask: Why would you shoot at a "floating guy with no legs"? 😆...I just can't figure out what that would accomplish LOL...

Again, great story and thanks for posting! ❤

Great story, I believe every word! This is just the kind of crap you have to put up with sometimes when you live in a really old house. Of course having a cemetary in the backyard doesn't hurt either. 😊

Great story! Well written! I could even hear your southern twang as I read your tale. 😊
Do you think the place burning down had anything to do with what you saw?

Hey Spooky,

Very interesting encounter. As a favor to us responsible gun owners though, in the future if you could leave out the "What the hell is that?...I don't know, but let's kill it" part of the story, it would be greatly appreciated.

Yikes, that is Creeeepy 😨 I'm thinking it could have been the care taker of the cemetery or of the ranch. Poor guy was just out making his rounds and he almost gets his ghost butt blown off. LOL! I would have glided my way out of there too. Great story, going in my favs. 😊

wow, I've read many stories on here but this one is similar to one I have heard here where I live in WV. My in-laws are from a place called Wyoming County, WV. And once there was this old guy who (now actually won't come out of his home because of this) he said he was driving this rd. Actually called Bolt Mt. It's very curvy and out in the country basically no homes, and have been known for dead people being found in other words it's a very bad place, well anyway he was driving down the mountain when all of a sudden something tapped on his window and when he glanced over he said it was a guy who was running beside his car but had no feet and was smiling and tapping on his window he got scared and stepped on the gas but the faster he went the guy did too, until finally he vanished. I used to not believe him until I actually have had a experience that I cannot explain which is on my story on here, I find it interesting that what you all saw was a human figure moving fast without legs like gliding. I would be so scared if I saw that, I know the guy here won't come out his house. 😐

Chilling story. Love it though 😁
Was the house on like a burial ground or something which could have caused that?
