This is my second experience. It happened when I was 6yrs old. My mom, aunt and uncle are karate masters. My aunt and uncle used to teach karate at a nearby hall. It used to start at 6pm and end by 8pm. I used to go with them.
One day it was my break time around 7:45 something and I was standing on a plastic chair which was near the window. It was totally dark outside and I was just looking outside the window and feeling the cold wind that was blowing outside. Suddenly I felt the need to look at the other side where there were tall bushes which were up to 5-6 feet tall. Suddenly I saw something that had human like features like hands and head, couldn't see anything else cause this happened in a fraction of seconds and I saw this human like but still unhumanly thing as if freely falling on me. I was still on the window, frozen!
When that thing with a lightning speed came towards me as if falling on me all I could see was it had thorns like things on its entire body but the thorns were very big in width and it was full of thorns and on the face, chest, hands, everywhere. I was so scared and I tried jumping off the chair but I was shivering and felt so weak. In an attempt to jump from the chair my legs crippled and I fell on the floor fracturing my right hand and breaking my nose. After that I never went to that karate classes again.
Even today when I think about it I can still remember how it looked and I can still feel the shiver of fear. It was so scary but I still couldn't understand what it was!?!?!Comments are welcome:)
I didn't mean to say that Dryads are evil creatures, which they aren't. They only don't really like humans.
And Dryads can be found in any tree, bush, etc., not only deep inside the forest, although they are more common there, of course.
