First, I want to start with some background information. I live in a very small town there is maybe 100 people in the town, it is very old. The town is shrinking and some of the lights along the roads are going out or don't work.
Recently someone new moved in very near where I live and we became great friends really fast and for some reason we always have these moments where we have the same exact thought but only one of us will say out loud, then the one who did not say it will say, "dude I thought the EXACT same thing". Although this has no relevance to the story I felt I should include it. This story took place on the short, minute long walk between our houses and since the town is so small I have two routes to his house, the road or my backyard, they each take about the same amount of time.
Now for the main part of my story. It was dark out, probably about 9:00 and for some reason I was going to his house and I don't recall why. I might have had to get something, or maybe it was not so late and I was going to hang with him. But it does not matter because it was dark. I took the road to his house and for some reason the walk always gives me chills. The road is lighted but only at the ends and sometimes the lights flicker or go out. This one walk was so much more creepy than rest. I don't understand why it felt so much worse but it did. Then I noticed that I had two shadows following behind me (shadow as in my shadows).
I would not have found this too odd except for two things. One, the second shadow was not connected to me. Two, the shadows were facing towards the light source. Yes there is a another light on the end of the street behind me but that was a bit too far away to be casting the shadows I was seeing. Then just when I was near his house I thought I heard a young woman's voice, probably around early 20s, and I had no clue what it was although I suspected it was laughter. When I got in my friends house I vaguely described the experience and we both laughed.
I think he thought I was just over-reacting, which I may have been. After that I kind of blew it off, but every time I take that walk in the dark I always get a little creeped out some times I will blast music to take the thought away. For some reason this experience reminds me of the song Fear of the Dark by Iron Maiden.
