I’m 20 years old and I’m married to a U.S. Soldier. We got married last July and he moved me from my home town in Michigan all the way to Kentucky. I know it’s going to sound like I’m babbling, but I swear everything I say is relevant to the story. I’m not the type of person to believe in vampires. You could say I’m a complete skeptic. “I’ll believe it when I see it”, that’s my motto. and it was working out perfectly fine… Until I saw it!
I’m really not sure what happened to this day, we were living in a tiny house way out in the country, surrounded my nothing but cornfields. Here’s where the real story starts. My husband knows I love animals and he got me a puppy as a surprise. He was perfect and I named him Barney. If you can picture the perfect dog, that is him. he was potty trained really young, always ate his food and never barked or showed any aggression.
So one night my husband had to work late, I was waiting for him to get home and I decided to watch a movie to kill the time.
I started watching The Dark Knight and I went into our kitchen to make some popcorn. While I was waiting for it to get done, Barney started going crazy and barking and snarling at something. I ignored him. I put the popcorn in a bowl and was walking back when I noticed that Barney was on the back of the sofa, barking and snarling at the window. It then occurred to me that he’d never done that before. I figured he was probably barking at our neighbors dog, Shadow, who kept coming in our yard and getting into our trash.
But when I peeked out the window it was no dog, it was a person! A man! Directly on the other side of the glass, staring straight back in at me! My first thought was to call the cops. Then I saw his eyes. Something in the back of my mind started screaming “vampire”, like I jut knew what he was. He had the darkest eyes I’ve ever seen. It was like he had his pupils dilated at the eye doctor! The white was there but the rest was all black. When I made eye contact with him it was weird, like I wasn’t alone in my mind. Like he could hear what I thought.
I was concentrating on thinking about the cops and telling him to go away. But his eyes got even wider and he showed his teeth at me. I seriously thought I was going to die! But then I blinked and he was gone. I kept all the doors and windows locked until my husband got home. I was scared but I didn’t tell him about it because I thought he’d call me crazy. The next day I had the urge to go outside and look around. I guess you could say I wanted proof of what happened, I didn’t find any, but my husband did, he just doesn’t know it.
When he got home he asked me “Babe, what is your sweater doing outside in the tree”? So I went and looked. Sure enough, out in the middle of the cornfield, way up in a tree, is my neon green and blue hoodie! I lost the sweater about a week before any of this happened. But there it was, blowing in the wind in the middle of field, up a tree!
It was our neighbors field so I went to his house and asked him if he’d get my sweater for me. He didn’t believe me when I said I didn’t know how it got up there.
But it gets even weirder than that. My dog, Barney won’t leave that particular sweater alone. If I leave it laying on the floor he’ll start dragging it around the house, and if I wear it he just won’t stop sniffing me. He’ll follow me around and beg me to pick him up just so he can sniff the sweater. Thank God that my husband and I moved out of that house. We live in TN. now.
So was it a vampire? I think it was, but I guess I’ll never know for sure. Or am I just crazy? Well I guess I was hoping you could tell me… What do you guys think? I just need some peace of mind, I can’t get it out of my head since it happened, it’s been 3 months almost. But I still remember it very vividly. I’ve tried to convince myself that it was a dream but I know I was completely conscious for the whole thing. I don’t know for sure what it was, but you know my theory. I can honestly say I’m not a skeptic any more!
