I grew up in southern California. When I was young I lived in a house that was about 90 years old. I do know that my great grandfather hung himself there, and that the house had been exorcised about 20 years before I was born due to bizarre occurrences.
When I was about seven years old there was a big lightning storm going on outside. I couldn't sleep that night because of all the flashes outside. I was sleeping on the couch at the time. I got up to get a drink of milk; the kitchen was only ten feet away from where I was sleeping. I walked into the kitchen and a flash of lightning lights everything up. It was during that flash that I saw something. About five feet away from me there was a figure. I can't say for sure if he was wearing some kind of cloak, I was only seeing his face. All I remember was seeing huge black eyes, or maybe they were holes. What I remember the most was his huge mouth. He had what looked like shark teeth, and his smile was way too large to be normal, I mean if I could see more I'm sure his mouth would have gone from ear to ear. As soon as the kitchen went dark I turned around and ran for my mom's room. Needless to say I didn't sleep that night.
About two years after that my mom brought my younger brother and I with her to meet her boyfriend's parents. We got bored and asked if we could ride some bikes we saw in the garage. We rode around and saw that we could ride around on some trails that were down the hill from where my mom was. My brother and I decided to race and we got on two separate trails and started pedalling as fast as we could. I had the wind making noise in my ears, but finally I heard my brother screaming my name. I look over and he is trying to keep up and he keeps saying" JOHN LOOK OUT!" I turned around and there was a truck not more than 2 feet behind my back tire and I was already going as fast as I could. I looked forward to see where I could go and saw a spot that wasn't a Joshua tree or a cactus. I look back to see if he was still close and notice that the truck is all rusty and really old. I look at the driver and it's the same thing I see in the kitchen, that mouth and those teeth. He seemed to be laughing because his head is just going from left to right and he wasn't even really looking at me just jerking his head left and right. I ran off into some bushes and the truck doesn't even slow down, as soon as it hits the road it does a hard right and speeds off.
My brother and I have talked about it. He saw how big the mouth was on that guy, he told people about it, his words are" He doesn't just have a big mouth, I mean that thing is too big to be human, like his whole mouth is half his face". I was in my old home last year and in the kitchen I stood where I was standing that night. I'm six foot one, that thing had to be around six foot six because the ceiling is not that tall. Black eyes (or just big holes in his head, I can't say for sure) a huge smile, and gigantic teeth. I have been trying to draw this thing, trying to figure out what it is.
I found this site and I hope someone on here can shed some light on what this could be/mean. I see things in the corner of my eyes every once and awhile but nothing on the scale of those two encounters. Sorry for the length but I am trying to be descriptive.
