This story that I'm sharing with you took place 5 years ago during summer 2011. It was a hot night in a small rural town outside of Montreal Qc, and I was walking home from hanging out with some friends who lived across town from me. Originally my curfew was supposed to be 12am but I stretched it out to 3-4am since I knew my mother would be sleeping and unaware of the real time I got home at.
Walking back home around 3am in my small town was always dead and quiet. Not a person or car in sight. To get home I would cross a highway that crossed two sides of the town I lived in and I would cross through a ditch that was well excluded and hidden by a wooded area (Thinking of it now it's a ditch I should not of cut through by myself at those odd hours). As I was cutting through the woods I had my cellphone's flashlight app on and noticed something was glowing in the reflection, and I found it weird that something would be glowing because I've never seen anything glow in the reflection of a flashlight. As I got closer I realized it wasn't something it looked like SOMEONE bent over in the bushes. I paused for a moment and thought to myself "ok maybe this is an animal reflecting in my flashlight" but I took a couple of steps closer and quickly realized that was not the case. My heart stopped for a couple of seconds and I just stared. I was looking at a demonic entity. Demonic looking it was. All I could see was its back hunched over as it was fiddling in the bushes, but the way it hunched didn't look normal and was really unsettling, and the ears were pointy with a glowing body. Then it turned its head almost as if it sensed me looking at it and noticed my flashlight on it. The eyes glowed a slight different color then the body (more of a yellow over white) and there was no face that I could see (no nose, no mouth, just two glowing yellow eyes and pointy ears).
I maybe stood there for 5-10 seconds at most before I reacted. I had three options. First one was to turn my back to it and run the long way home, or run right by it home, or to quietly walk past it. Something inside me said do not turn your back (everything I had heard from my family about demons was to never show fear or to turn your back) and also to not startle it by running (That I don't know why I felt that way but I did) so I chose to walk past it quietly and to not make any eye contact whatsoever with it and that's what I did. Walking by it was one of the scariest things I ever had to do but I swallowed my fear and managed to make it home but as soon as I was out of the wooded area I started to run believe me, and for weeks after that I slept with my mother or younger sister.
A couple of years later I decided to use Google to see if I could find any information on the entity I saw and the closest thing I was able to find to it was the rake. A entity that has been seen on numerous occasions dating back as early as 1691.
