That Stormy Night
3 Pages 664 Words
Have you ever had one of those memories that when you think about it just seems as if it happened yesterday, no matter how much time has passed? Well, that is definitely how I would describe this dreadful, yet significant event in my life.
When I think about the most bizarre thing I have ever seen, I definitely go straight to about two years ago on a cold, rainy, December evening. The night all began when I was released from one exhausted day at work. During the day, I had planned to go see a movie with a bunch of my friends later that night. My initial plan was to go home get a quick shower and then head off to meet my friends at the movie. Well as one infers my plans were in for a change.
After rushing in the shower, I quickly rushed to my parent's room to tell them I was leaving. It sounded as though they were both drying their hair so I just left a note saying that I was leaving and I would see them later that night when I got in. I quickly got into my car and headed out the driveway as soon as my phone rang; it was Mandy, one of my best friends who was also going to the movie. She asked me if I would mind picking her up and taking her because she had no gas. I told her alright but that we were probably going to be a little late. So I immediately turned my car around and drove the other direction to Mandy's house so I could go pick her up.
On the way to her house, the weather began to get worse. The rain began to fall heavier and the windshield became harder and harder to see out of. The car that was behind me kept riding so close to mine that I couldn't even see their headlights. I ended up building up anger and keeping my eye on the car behind me. The moment I began to think about what was going on in front of the car, all I could see was water running down the windshield. No matter how hard I put my wipers on they just wouldn't go fast enough. It looked as if th

A Dark and Stormy Night Story
A Dark and Stormy Night Story
It was a dark and stormy night. A guy was driving in some mountains and his car broke down. He stopped it by a tree and walked down the highway looking for help. A headlight started to approach him from behind. He turned back and noticed a car coming forth very slowly out of the gloom. He walked up to it, opened the door, and sat on the passenger’s seat. Then he suddenly noticed that there was no driver, but the car was moving!
Before the guy could decide what to do, a sharp turn appeared a few meters before the car and it seemed as though the car was going to go off the cliff. The guy trembled in fright, but just as the car reached the edge a pale hand came in from the open window and turned the steering wheel! When the car finished turning around the curve, the hand withdrew. Every time there was a turn, the same hand would come in and guide the wheels of the car to safety.
The guy could not believe all this. As soon as he saw the lights of some rest stop by the road he jumped off the car and ran into a bar, pale, wet, shaking, and telling everybody that he had this creepy, supernatural experience.
Then two young men dripping in mud came into the bar. One saw the guy and said, “Hey, that’s the jerk that got in our car while were pushing.”
