This thrilling scenario happened with a guy named John when he was 17 years old…
He would go to the gym, three to four times a week and ride the bus home.
It was a Sunday — and he had just missed his bus, so he had to wait longer for another one.
He would’ve called my parents but they were out for the evening -
and taxis charged more…
The night was so chilly, and snow had just begun to fall on the ground.
His bus was taking longer than usual so he got his phone out and listened to some music.
Almost an hour had passed…
It was freezing and he hadn’t seen anyone at all.
That wasn’t until he noticed something out of the corner of his eye…
It was a creepy guy, dressed in thick layers of clothing, walking slowly towards him.
He knew staring at the scary man would draw more attention, so he just focused on his phone.
The man sat down at the other end of the shelter and just stared at John.
There was something off about him…
He seemed as he is to be drunk or drugged.
He then asked -
“When is the bus due?”
John took out his earphones and said -
“I think it’s delayed because of the snow”.
He stared at John for a while then started mumbling to himself.
He was really starting to creep john out, so he pretended to be on his phone.
After a couple of minutes, john took another look…
He’d moved closer to John…
John looked away for a second then heard the sound of him sliding even closer.
John turned to him and said -
“You okay there?”
He stared at me with glossy eyes, lifted his arm and leaned towards John.
Immediately, John grabbed his bag and ran as he fell to the ground.
John ran down the road trying his hardest not to look back.
John kept going until John got to the next bus stop.
John turned around to check to see if he was there…
He was gone, so John went to sit down.
Feeling relieved, John rested his head on the back of the glass and waited for the bus.
*knock knock knock knock*
John jolted and turned around to see the same guy staring at him through the glass.
“What the hell is wrong with you”?
Then he started walking around the shelter towards John.
“I’m warning you! Stay. Back.”
John yelled in panic as he was backing up…
John wanted to run, but he left my bag in the shelter and couldn’t leave without it.
Suddenly, the man leaped at John and he quickly moved out of the away.
He fell to the ground face first.
John froze in shock then noticed the blood coming from his face.
John tried to get a response out of him but nothing worked.
John called the police and paramedics and they arrived shortly after.
John told them what had happened, and they told him that the guy was on prescription drugs…
He found a photo of him and his son in his wallet.
The boy looked just like John so They assumed that he thought John was his son.
John later learned that he had lost his son in a custody battle and went off the rails.
He was taken away for treatment and that was the last John saw of him.
