I was on my Learners License and having a driving lesson with my mother who was teaching me to drive a manual car on the back road near the local Tip. We were driving up and down the road which was bushy.


We saw a tall man huddled next to a rock on the left side of the road. It looked like a very tall hairy man. He was crouched like he was frozen.


We both thought ‘What is he doing’, and became a bit scared, so we pulled over and swapped seats and my mother took over driving. When we started driving again, we thought he had gone.


Then ahead we saw him run across the road from left to right. It didn’t look quite human because it had really long arms and fingers and was hairy and was at least 7ft tall. He had really LONG fingers. It was hunched and his arms swung. Didn’t look coordinated.


It had broad shoulders, and its arms hung down to its shins. It looked black, but I’m not sure if that’s because it was night. The head looked like a persons but more like a monkey. I’m not sure if that’s because of all the hair. It was a big head, bigger than a persons. The thing that’s really struck me the most was the length of the arms and how long the fingers were. The fingers were distinctively long. You don’t normally notice someone’s fingers when they walk past you. If you know the movie ‘The Grinch’, they kind of looked like that, but black.



I looked at my mother and she looked shocked.
