I have finally gathered my thoughts enough to get to writing a part two for you all. However, some of these next encounters are my close friend's as well. I might not be able to get them all into one story, but there will definitely be more parts.
Now, let me give you a little bit of background info on my friend before I continue. To start off, she is a Wiccan and has always been open to spirits and other things of that nature. So for the first of her stories, we live about 30 or so minutes away from a popular tourist attraction. The road down is a little bit windy and quite dark at night as there are very few street lights down that way. I'm not going to say much about the location as I don't want to give my location away for my safety. Another thing to note about this road is that after a certain part at night, people in the local car groups love to speed and drift down that road. Admittedly, it is a really nice area to do such.
Anyway, my friend went for a drive down there one night to clear her head. On the way down, she was on the phone with a friend on speaker in her car. The phone signal as you get closer to the gate at the end gets worse and worse and as a result, the call got disconnected. She immediately tried calling back but got nothing but static. She immediately felt unsafe and turned around. When she got closer to the main road, she called the friend again and asked what happened when she tried calling back earlier. He told her that she didn't call back at all. He sent a screenshot of his call logs and the second call was not there whereas in her screenshots, the second call was there.
This next part is going to be one of my personal accounts. Back in December of 2020, I was driving down a relatively popular scenic mountain road while killing time before I had to pick up my roommate from the airport. If you haven't been able to tell so far, my friends and I do a lot of "recreational" driving. To continue, I was at about the halfway mark between the start of the trail and the end, give or take a few miles. It was about 9:30 pm and I was the only one on the road. Nobody in front of me, nobody behind me. If there was, it was a significant distance to where I wasn't able to see them. I had my high beams on, as it was safe to do so, and I briefly saw a woman in a very strange white dress walking on the right side of the road facing away from me. As I mentioned in my first story, when I say I see things, I mean they are visible in my mind's eye. The woman's dress looked like a very thick off-white material (picture the outfit Baby Yoda wears) with sandals and dishwater blonde hair. Her head was pointed downward and away from me. I know it wasn't physically there because once I blinked, the woman was gone. Believe it or not, Arizona gets pretty cold in the winter. It was borderline freezing that night so the sandals didn't make any sense to me. And no, I don't live in Flagstaff or anywhere that regularly gets snow.
That's it for now. Thank you all so much for reading and I'm sorry for how wordy it was. I'd love to hear your thoughts about both encounters.
