This is the scariest thing I have ever experienced.
A friend of mine and I often would include the Moscow (Ohio… not Russia) Cemetery as part of our spooky driving excursions. I liked this cemetery because the road up to it is insanely curvy, one lane, and in the woods. So you weave in and out of a forest and then suddenly you are at the top, in an open field filled with gravestones. There were often deer and fireflies, and it was a little spooky.
One night, we had no real plans and had decided to just drive around - a pretty typical plan for us, actually. He decided he wanted to borrow his dad’s car, which was much nicer than his. So off we went, driving around.
At some point we ended up at the Moscow Cemetery. Like I said, we had been there before. But this night, as we pulled into the clearing, it felt different. As we parked, I told my friend I wasn’t getting out. It was summer, and warm out, but I felt cold and just… heavy. He told me he wanted to check something out on one of the edges of the clearing, and I told him I would wait in the car.
If you look at the picture, you can see the little road that loops through the grave yard. We were parked near that fence bit just before the curve. Whatever my friend had decided to “check” was off towards the edge where all the trees are. Here, this will be easier:
I was in the passenger seat, and I was getting antsy wishing he would come back to the car so we could leave. The air just felt so strange and somehow angry. I was staring out the driver’s side window, trying to find him in the darkness to see if he was on his way back to the car. I was seeing movement, so I was really trying to focus on it, leaning towards the window, staring at it. Suddenly I could make out the distinct movement of something running, FULL SPEED, directly at me. But I could only see the edges of it because it was clear. It was like I could only see the places where this thing disturbed the air. As I am realizing this it hits me OMG IT IS RUNNING FULL SPEED DIRECTLY AT ME. I jump into the driver’s side and roll up the window (of course it was manual windows when I needed it to go up quickly). The whole time I am staring at this thing running at me. I get the window up, and this thing hits the window and just becomes a puff of smoke. I jump back into my seat and stare FORWARD until Josh gets back in the car.
He can tell I am really shaken, so he starts heading back down the hill on the twisty road. He asks me what happened and I just said, “Something really scary..” I didn’t want to talk about it til I was away from the cemetery, somewhere safe. As we went down the hill, my window started to fog up. I am sure I was breathing pretty heavy, since I was so freaked out, so I don’t think the window fog was necessarily paranormal. But the road was dark so all I could see was that it was fogging up. At the bottom of the road, there is a street light, and as we pulled into its glow, we could see that written across my window in big capital letters was the word DIE.
In order to take the car out, we told his dad we would clean and detail it. So before we had gone anywhere, we had taken it to the car wash and scrubbed the crap outta it. We vacuumed, and waxed, and cleaned the windows and windshields inside and out. There was nothing on those windows before we drove up that hill. It was ridiculous. I was so freaked out, that I just didn’t talk all the way back to his house where I insisted on simply cuddling with his cat til I wasn’t scared anymore.
When I told my friends (who all liked to ghost hunt with me) about what happened, they all wanted to go see the place. I didn’t want to go back, but I took them anyway. The cemetery never ever felt that evil again. We had other experiences there - voices, weird unexplainable lights, etc - but it was always lighter and never scary. I wonder if it was the person I had gone there with. I never asked him what he was “checking” on outside the car. To be honest, I don’t want to know. Because whatever it was sent something running for me and I can never unsee that. Even if that energy is cleared of the cemetery, it is not cleared from my memory.
