Little Boy


I live in New Bern. Forty five minutes south of New Bern is Jacksonville which is home to the marine base Camp Lejeune. In between New Bern and Jacksonville are two small towns called Pollocksville and Maysville.

A friend and I were driving back from Jacksonville one night heading for her house. She was driving and I was in the passenger seat texting on my phone and talking to someone on hers. A road in Pollocksville leads straight to James City. A dirt road off of that road leads straight to her house. Our initial plan was to take the dirt road because it would be quicker. It was about midnight or later and we were on that road. Right as we were about to take the dirt road I looked up and screamed. I scared her to the point that she didn't take the dirt road. She knows about my secret that I have never told any one in my life. So I told her why I screamed. A little boy was standing on the dirt road. He couldn't have been older than 6 or 7 years old. His face was completely mutilated and bloody. She said that it must have been warning for us not to take that road. We never go on that dirt road anymore. Not even during the day.

My secret is I can see ghosts and other things that other people can't see.

Thanks everyone for your comments. I didn't add lots of details mainly because I just got this and I was scared of what people may think. My whole life I have labeled myself as a freak because of it.

I found this site and it made me feel better about myself. That's not my only experience and I will add more soon.

To Denni, yes it scared me so much. I see them all the time. But he was the first one I had seen that actually appeared like that. I cried myself to sleep that night partly because I didn't expect it and partly because I didn't know what happened.

To bigC, some scare you half to death. Others are not so bad. There are days when I hate it and I wish it didn't happen to me. I never understood it and never talked to anyone about it until I met my best friend. She has it too. You just have to remember to never let it consume you and don't let it run your life. You could be scared by it and be paranoid by it for the rest of your life. Or you can embrace it and accept it. No matter what it will happen.

scary and sad. I agree with everyone else. Seeing that boy could have been a warning. But it may have been a warning not for the road, but for anything else. Thats so sad, the poor boy... 😢

Hello! 😁

Thanks for sharing your story! I'm sorry you had to see that... That's real creepy.

I agree with aussiedaz... Maybe he died on that road and he was warning you not to take it. I feel bad for lost spirits... I just want them all to be happy and whatnot...

Hello Hmward, Welcome to the site and thanks for sharing your secret. Maybe it was a warning not to take that road or maybe that poor boy is a confused soul that had a tragic end to his life. Just like our lives are sometimes unbalanced, I think some souls struggle in a similar way, Take care thanks again.
