I'm almost 30 years old and my story takes place about 9 years ago or so, I don't remember exactly. I remember an old friend of mine and I had been talking about paranormal things what we believed in, how many people we knew who believed, that sort of thing. We had been sitting at his house and got restless so we decided to take a drive in his car. It was a very cloudy night and they were calling for heavy amounts of rain (It was probably around 7 or 8pm by the time we started our ride). We get maybe 30 minutes from his house and the rain starts pouring, we had been just making small talk and listening to the radio up to this point.
A short while we round a curve and to my right is a giant open field and about that time a bright stream of lightning lit up the sky over this field and I happened to look over and I see not ONE but MANY, what I believe are spirits of some sort, standing in this field. Some are doing everyday type things. Some were just standing there while others were walking around looking lost, one thing I noticed is that while we were driving past every single one of these "Spirits" stopped and stared directly at me as we drove by. I thought maybe after we had driven past and I looked back I would have found that it was just my imagination, but as I looked back and the sky lit up again I could still see them all there, just no longer focusing on me.
I also remember that night after I got home rather shaken and definitely afraid, I was having a dream about something attacking me. It was an evil presence I remember that and I remember it bit me in my dream and about that time I woke up (I felt the pain on my arm NOT in my dream) and I looked down and there were bite marks on my arm where this presence had bitten me. I am still not sure what to make of either of these experiences. The bite was NOT caused by an animal as my dad would not allow me to have pets, and all doors and windows were closed. Just curious as to what everyone's ideas may be on these two subjects.
By the way I'm new to this site, I've been reading some of the stories on here for about an hour now and I have been impressed with it.
