I gave a ride to a friend of a friend of mine headed toward Timber Lake
Been a while since I posted anything, well I have some time right now 😉 I gave a ride to a friend of a friend of mine headed toward Timber Lake, it was evening and I was looking to make conversation with him to pass the time. He said he was going to his girlfriends house in White Horse once and he broke down about 10 miles south of Timber Lake on that dirt road, he blew a hose right by the thermostat. It was hot out even for night, like 90 degrees at around 9 or 10pm. He got out some duck tape out of his trunk and taped up the hole in the hose and next looked for antifreeze but couldn’t find any, but he had a container so he looked for a dam or a creek and saw one about a half mile off the road.
Right away he started off with his jug for the stock dam. He saw a bunch of cows beside the dam but they were on the other side, it was kind of bright out because of the moon. He got to the stockdam and got down to the water which was difficult with all the cattails and the squishy black mud that is always around the edges. he got it almost full when he noticed that the cows were running away, all together, and not slowly, they were bookin it like they were being chased by riders! He looked around but saw nothing, he finished filling his jug and turned around, his shoe got stuck in that mud, and his foot was making that sucking sound when he was trying to get his foot out of there. He reached down for his shoe but heard some footsteps, he looked up and looked around but saw nothing, so he went back to trying to get his shoe out. He reached down again and felt his shoe way down in the mud, he grabbed it and pulled, it was really stuck! So he put down his water jug and started pulling on his shoe with both hands, he just wouldn’t budge!
He tried cleaning off the mud and felt around the shoe to see what it was stuck on, he felt something hard like pinching down on the front of the shoe, he thought it’s a damn branch! I’ll have to really yank it to get it free! He had ahold of the top of his shoe and around the middle and pulled with all his strength! It slowly gave way and it seemed to be slowly coming out, then all of a sudden it just came out and he lost his footing and fell backward into the mud! After some expletives he started pulling himself out of the mud, trying to stand up he put his hand down in the mud and found his hand tangled in some branches or roots. He tugged at his hand but felt something, the branch seemed to be wrapped around his wrist! He pulled again and then got his other hand free and tried to pull his hand out of the mud, he pulled and pulled and finally saw the root that was around his hand…it was a boney, black and white skeleton hand!! He felt something going around his bare right foot! Then his left foot!
He screamed and pulled his wrist free but the hand begin reaching for him again! He struggled to get free but it was like a bad dream where your stuck in peanut butter and can’t move because it’s so thick and your stuck!! He crawled and jumped and just used his whole body to roll over the cattails and weeds to the edge of the dam and looked back to see the cattails moving and boney hands crawling toward him!! He screamed and got to his feet, grabbed his shoe and his water jug and ran without looking back all the way back to his car!!! He got in and started it and just drove till he seen the lights of White Horse and pulled over, he put the water in his car and then went on again! He said he didn’t stop shaking till after he went to bed that night, his girlfriend said he was so scared he didn’t go to sleep till almost early that next morning, but he had nightmares!
