Bike Accident


A month ago, I was riding my bike home after school and I was in a pretty bad mood because of school stuff. My mind was pre-occupied and I was thinking about random stuff until at a point, I took a turn and motor bike came straight at me. It didn't hit me. Instead it turned at the right time. But me being a scaredy cat lost balance and fell off my bike. The person who rode the motor bike stopped and turned around to help me.

He was a really sweet person. He helped me up and kind of fixed my bike's chain because of the fall. It was also raining and my jacket had gotten all dirty and messed up, he handed me his coat. After that he insisted on walking me home because my knee got injured. He also took my bike in hand. I agreed and we started walking. He introduced himself as Gavin and he was 19 and I introduced myself. We talked and I ended up telling him about what was bothering me and at some points he laughed. Some points he supported me.

We were about to reach my street but I thought it would be wise to let him drop me by my street instead of my house for reasons like 'stranger danger' and my strict parents. So I let him drop me by my street. Before leaving he told me "Life is like a broken puzzle which sometimes you need to either stick or tape the torn pieces into a complete one to let the whole puzzle make sense."

Believe it or not that advice made so much sense. We said our good byes and before leaving he placed a kiss on my forehead. I was touched and I might have grown to have a slight crush right there. We parted ways, and here's where things didn't make sense.

I must have taken two steps before I turned around to watch him leave but he wasn't there. It was as if he disappeared into thin air. I took a turn and tried searching for him but he wasn't there. He could not have possibly run that fast for him to completely disappear. Even if he did run, I should have heard his footsteps. But he wasn't there. I reached home and sat down on my bed recalling this whole experience. From the almost crash to me leaving him outside my street. I realized except for his name I didn't know anything about him. I did ask him once where he studied. But he seemed almost hesitant to answer until he told me 'Some college in Amsterdam'.

The next day while I was biking to school I stopped seeing a black coat. I picked it up and the sense of chills ran through me because it was the same coat Gavin handed to me. It had the initials G.K. On the sleeves. I was scared and didn't believe what was going on because why would Gavin's coat be lying on the middle of the bike path? I left the coat and I was paranoid the whole day.

Later that night, I saw a dream of my dead best-friend who passed away 3 years ago. He was there with me and we were simply talking until I saw his motor bike which he was sitting on while I was sitting on some rock. The motor bike seemed so familiar and then it clicked for me. It was Gavin's motor bike. I looked up at my best friend and pointed at the bike with a very paranoid expression. He looked down at the bike and then up at me with a playful smirk... I woke up sweating and panting at that dream. Nothing made sense at that point.

This whole experience made me want to believe I was crazy. I tried talking to my friends here but they said I was going insane. Maybe I am. I don't know if I need help. But when I think about it, the whole experience may have been confusing and extreme, but not once I was feeling scared with Gavin. I just don't know what he was. If he was even real.

Hi The_Lost_Voyage_11,

I've accepted that he was someone who just came into my life and help me out in the slightest way possible.

I am really thankful he did that. There has been a few positive things going on in my life, like not caring what others thought about me and know who is just using me, or don't really care for me. Things have been less toxic.

But they are downsides which, I just posted about. Would really love your thoughts on it.

I would love everyones thoughts and help me understand if the changes in me is something I should worry up.

Thank You!

Hello Jessica2k67, what a fascinating encounter, thanks for sharing.

It seems you encountered a spirit guide/protector, the appearance, the feelings, the advice which made sense to you and seem to 'fit' just like a piece of a puzzle. I assure you, you're not losing your mind and there is no need to research or try to find out who/what he was, because that information won't come from this plane of existence. It wasn't a ghost.

I assume the comment you made 'that since the encounter, there's been something wrong with you' is made in reference to changes you've been going through since the experience? I'd be curious to know, if you're willing to share, what exactly has been happening for you?

These types of encounters precede a life event, a change or shift, for the positive, but it can seem unnerving if you don't know what's going on. I believe the entity may have some link to your friend, but whoever it was, they were there to assist you, there was a sort of divine timing in this encounter if this makes sense.

There's a lot more playing out here, but I'm wondering about your own abilities and gifts, those would be what you should be focusing on rather than trying to find out what happened, that information about the experience you had will come to you in time.

In either case, I look forward to hearing more from you as this could be an exciting life experience for you that you're embarking on. Good Luck!

Hi Tweed,

I know that Gavin never meant harm for me and I appreciate that about him. I considered a lot of things like- Maybe Gavin and my friend were friends in their life time being far apart? Maybe they met each other after their life? Possibilities.

About the changes and emotions in me, I'm going to start explaining that in another story.

Thank you so much and take care!

Hi Jessica,

I read this the other day and was fascinated. Usually these types of encounters are of spirits helping the living out of danger some how. Not spirits being the cause of danger and then helping. Perhaps this is the most important detail of all:
"Life is like a broken puzzle which sometimes you need to either stick or tape the torn pieces into a complete one to let the whole puzzle make sense."
If Gavin is a ghost, one who knows your friend from your dream, this quote may be the key to unlocking the mystery. The jacket is another bizarre detail.
In the dream your friend seemed to know something about the motorbike. Maybe the motorbike
Symbolised that it isn't your time, you're meant to stay here and live your life.

On top of all this you may be experiencing shock which affects everyone differently. This may account for your feelings of unease.

Thanks for sharing. I hope you will update if you find out anything more. This is a very fascinating occurrence!

Hi lwgrn4real66,

Your experience sounds terrifying. And hopefully you are doing well.

I've tried searching for him for a week or so after the encounter, but I had no luck. So I'm starting to admit I'll never see him again and this whole experience would be a one time thing.

Thank you for your advice! Take care!

It sounds weird that any ghost or spirit would have that type of energy for that length of time. Bur, on the other hand, I saw my dad's doppelganger which was as real looking and non-transparent as if I were looking at you right now.

Needless to say, he passed away within less than one year after me sering that in his house. So, all I know is your experience could have been totally real.

When you've had any or several experiences, you'll see a lot of them don't make a lot of sense to us in the real physical world a lot of times.

I've had many experiences and I DON'T look for things to happen and nor do I "ghost hunt) any of the places I've experienced things like this.

I believe, if you look for it hard enough, you'll find it! And, I don't want to "AMP up" any of the experiences I've had because I wouldn't want to end up with a real bad entity or even a demon haunting me. Good luck and take care! You'll be okay. Of you feel you ever need real help, don't hesitate if possible. 😁

Hi Rajine,

I'd like to think that encounter was needed in my life some way. I don't know what or who Gavin was even after doing tons of research on deaths nearby the area. All I know is that Gavin meant no harm to me.

Thank you for replying!

Hi Lady-Glow,

I will try not to think about the encounter much if that helps. The little pieces of information is all what I have and remember throughly. I have tried to talk about this with my parents but they never believed in life after death, or anything like that. So it becomes near to impossible for me to go to a professional since I'm only 15.

But I will definitely try to forget about this encounter.

Thank You!

Hi Jessica.

"ever since that encounter there has been something wrong with me"

Not meaning to pry and not knowing if by this you mean your health or something else but it's important to look for the proper help (professional?) depending on whatever problem you may have been having after this encounter.

From my perspective, it's hard to give you any kind of advice upon the little information provided by your narrative, I also do not know how to interpret your dream.

Try not to think too much about this encounter, specially if doing so brings extra stress into your life.

Hi Jessica2k67

There are a few theories I have, it could be a resident or random spirit, perhaps a guardian angel, or maybe it was your late friend looking out for you.

Thank you so much for understanding the situation!

To answer your question that whole encounter might have been around 20-25 minutes My friend passed away in Malaysia and I don't think he ever visited the Netherlands. And his initials weren't G.K. Except the motor bike everything about Gavin was different.

I tried searching him up on social platforms but with very little information about him I couldn't.

I will try and research the history and death cases in my area if anything pops up.

What's been worse that ever since that encounter there has been something wrong with me.

Again thank you so much to find the time to reply to my story.

Welcome to YGS.

In my opinion, neither you nor your friends have enough knowledge to accurately diagnose you with a mental illness.

How long did it last this 'encounter'? A spirit would need a lot of energy to move a physical object (your bike) for a long period of time and distance, not to mention the jacket abandoned on the bike path.

I'm not sure if your narrative is about the visitation of your deceased friend pretending to be 'Gavin', usually spirits keep the same appearance they had as living people.

Did your friend use to bike through that path?
Were the letters G.K. His initials? Did he own a jacket like the one Gavin lent you and later was on the ground?

I guess this encounter is a twist to the "ghostly hitchhiker" and, if so, it's possible that more people have seen and interacted with him. Perhaps he died in that area.
It would be a good idea to research the history of any possible missing/dead young men in that area.

Thanks for sharing.
