Don’t Get Out of the Car #2
I was driving home late one night. It was about 1:00 AM in the morning. I made the turn on to the street which I lived anticipating going home and getting snug into bed for a good night’s sleep. It was overcast that night and very dark. I was a little ways down my street when I noticed a car turning on its headlights just as it was about to make a turn onto my street. The lights went on only for a moment and then shut off once again. It struck me as strange at the time and took me a couple of seconds to process it. I pulled into my driveway which was a circular driveway and I stopped the car by the front door. My husband’s car was in the garage. Something deep inside told me not to get out of the car. I then realized that the car which turned on it’s lights must have been following me, with his lights off. He turned them on only for a moment so he could see where to turn because it was so dark. A thought crossed my mind that I was just being silly and I should just get out of the car and go inside. The front door was only 15 or so feet away. I was very tired and wanted to just go in and get to bed so badly, but that nagging voice inside me was telling me to not get out of the car. I did not see or hear the other car at all. After a small debate with myself, I thankfully decided to error on the side of caution and chose to make a quick drive around the neighborhood before entering my house. As I backed up to pull out of my drive, my headlights shone on the garage door. I was shocked to see the figure of a man wearing a dark track suit pressed up against the door. He was standing there just waiting for me to get out of my car. He would have surely got me before I could have made it inside. I backed out of the drive and drove around the block. The man’s car was at the end of a neighbor’s driveway backed in. He made it to my house on foot by the time I was ready to get out of my car. When I drove by again, the car was gone. Thank God the neighbor’s across the street on the other side were just coming home as well. I told them what happened and they made sure I got into the house safely. I did report the incident to the police but I never heard anything else from them.
