12. A Guardian Angel In The Dead Of Night
I was driving along this road that stretches out over about 100km. It’s was almost 1am, and I was at the end of the road that is very desolate. Neighbors were kilometers apart from each other. It’s a familiar route for me, I drive on it once every few months just to go anywhere.
Because of how isolated it is, there’s no street lights so you have to rely on your car headlights. On this particular night I was feeling a little strange because the route didn’t seem familiar, which is impossible because it’s just one long road with the occasional turning roads. But I kept driving along towards the place where I turn around.
I can to this certain point in the road where there was one lone house, their car was parked in the driveway and I could see that there was somebody in the passenger seat. I thought it was kind of weird because it was so late/early. As I got closer to them they turned the car on, and flashed their high beam lights at me. I didn’t pay much attention to this but then I drove past them and looked into my rear view mirror to see what they were up too. They pulled out of their driveway onto the road going the same direction I was.
I was a little nervous at this point because it still looked unfamiliar to me. About five minuets up the road, I looked into my rear-view mirror and the car that pulled out behind me was gone. I looked to my left and noticed an abandoned convenience store on the side of the road, this was something I remember driving passed whenever I would drive up here and I remember that directly in front of the store, a couple of feet away there’s a phone booth.
Both the store and the phone booth were run down, and covered in graffiti. Neither had been used in a very long time. As I got closer I saw that there was a dark figure behind the glass of the phone booth. They were looking right at me, I could see their eyes in my headlights. I got a little closer and they stepped out of the phone booth and started walking towards the road that I was on. I started to speed up and then this really bright light came on behind me, and this person just took off towards the back of the store.
I looked in my rear-view mirror and saw the car that had flashed at me earlier. It was about 100 meters behind me. It followed me for another kilometer or so until we reached a turn off road where it did a U-turn and went back the other way.
To get home I had to go back the way I came. I drove past the phone booth and there was nothing there, and then I reached the house where the car pulled out and it was back in it’s driveway. Driver still in the front seat.
