SPINE-CHILLING: 17 People Describe The Creepiest Unexplained Thing That Ever Happened To Them

5. The phantom on the field.

“I live in Stuttgart and was walking across an open area that used to be a parade area I guess. Just kind of a wide-open field. My head was down and I was looking at some of the leaves on the ground when off to my left I heard, ‘how are you doing?’

I looked over assuming I was going to see someone I knew, but it wasn’t. Now keep in mind, I’m an atheist and have no belief in anything outside of that which can be proved. Just was worth mentioning. When I looked over I saw a small person about four feet tall. I say person because I still don’t know if it was a man or woman, child or adult. But more than anything, the clothes are what really threw me. The clothes looked as though they were made by someone who had never seen clothes before. As if some made what were supposed to be clothes. That’s the only way I can describe it.

Well, I answered, but quickly looked away. I started to walk away, but reason got the best of me and I thought, ‘you are mistaken, turn around and figure this out.’ Well, I turned around to an empty field. I have no idea where this person went, since I only walked about ten steps.

I have no idea what I saw and actually thought that I had a full-on hallucination. Nothing like that has ever happened to me before, but it was definitely an odd feeling.”
