My Father tells me many stories from his childhood, out of all his stories this one is the creepiest and scariest. He told me this story in Spanish but I am gonna tell it in English from his point of view.
One evening I lost track of time in the city my dad always told me to start heading home before sunset because once you start to make your way back home leaving the city there is no lights coming back. I got on my horse and started making my way back and the sun was going down quickly, before I knew it I was surrounded in darkness hugging my horse as it galloped along the trail back to the ranch. It was so dark If I were to put my hand 3 inches in front of my face I couldn’t see it, all that was visible were the stars shining in the sky.
Locals talked about seeing 6 men carrying a coffin by the small river I had to cross eventually going home. The story goes while crossing the river you will hear footsteps on the water and rocks being kicked to your left. But no matter how much noise and footsteps you hear you must NEVER turn left, always look right while crossing. Because left is the side of the devil and if you look left when you hear the noises you will see 6 men staring at you with glowing eyes. It’s been proven that people died from fear and falling off their horses when seeing the men.
As I arrived closer to the river I could hear the calming rush of water running through the rocks, trying not to remember the old tale I focus on hugging the horse and hoping he takes me home safely. Then I hear footsteps… They get louder… I’m trying my hardest not to look left just keeping my eyes closed trying not to open them. My horse seems agitated, I know he sees something that I refuse to turn and see. But my curiosity gets the best of me, and I slightly open my eyes and turn left. 2 big round red eyes stare at me 10 feet away. As I start to tear up and cry, I signal my horse to go! Fearing for my life I hug my horse tighter and never have I felt happier to be with another living thing especially a horse.
I get home yelling to my mother and father telling them what i saw. My dad looks at me and laughs.”I TOLD YOU NOT TO COME BACK LATE BOY! TAKE YOUR ASS TO BED!”
That is the end of that story. I am curious big eyes means aliens no? He was 9 years old from what he tells me and the place he speaks of is Guatemala.
