Man On the Road Ghost Story

by Leslie G.

One night my two friends and I went shopping.

We were on our way home when we saw a man walking along the road in dirty clothes. We decided to stop and ask if there were any problems. The man turned and said,''No. I am just on my way home. That's all," and he continued walking. We started driving again and about a mile or so up the road I looked out my mirror and saw the same man right behind our car. "How did he get to that spot so fast? He was just way back there," my friend said. We parked on the side of the road again and we all stepped out. The man didn't even turn to look at us. He just walked right past us. We called for him. No answer.

Then I started walking towards him to see what was wrong and he started running. We chased him until he went around the corner. I was right on his tail. My friends were right behind me.

I looked behind me, then in front again, and came to an abrupt stop. There was a dead end and the man that I was chasing disappeared into thin air! I backed up slowly and went to my friends. We started talking about what had just happened. Then all of a sudden, we heard the car start up, and we all ran around the corner once more. The car that we had been driving was pulling out of its spot...but there wasn't a driver in it. Then the door opened and we saw a dark figure run into the woods.

Eventually, we got in the car and drove off. I swore I would never go near that place again...
