#100WordHorror ★ AloneAtNight (Mean Old Man)


I’ve always hated sounds more than actually seeing things because at least with seeing you feel it’s more something you can control.

I had an experience where my best friend and I stood outside her house when we were five or six, playing around for only a few minutes. It was dead quiet for some reason, like the quiet when it has snowed, even though she lived near a busy street and there were cars always passing.

Through the quiet we suddenly hear a man’s laugh right next to us but nobody was around. It sounded like a mocking laugh, and we looked around wondering where it came from. Then it got quiet again, and suddenly into our ears we hear a loud hissing “SHHH!”

We both screamed and ran inside as quickly as possible, and we didn’t go out for the rest of the day.

I was recently discussing that moment with my best friend and she told me that she would always see a mean old man at the foot of her bed at night when she lived in that house. He would tell her he was going to hurt her and her mother. Oh...and that house burned down pretty soon after our weird experience, for seemingly no reason at all.★
