I noticed that alot of you guys like these horror stories, and I was reading a bunch last night, so I figured I would post some. Now, unlike some other posters, instead of saying "100 thumbs up and I'll add another part", I will be adding full stories.

The Rake
During the summer of , evena in the northeastern United States
involving a strange, humanlike creature sparked brief' local media interest
before an apparent blackout was enacted. Little or no Iktf' was left
intact, as most online and written accounts of the creature were
mysteriously destroyed.
Primarily focused In rural New Yark state, self proclaimed witnesses told
stories of thier encouters with a creature of unkown origin. Emotions
ranged from extremely traumatic levels of fright and discomfort, to an
almost childlike sense of playfulness and curiosity. While their published
versions are no longer on record, the memories remained powerful. Several
of the Involved parties began looking for answers that year.
In early EDDIE, the t: had accumulated nearly two dozen
document dating between the 11th century and present day, spanning A
continents. m almost all cases, the stories were Identical. I' been in
contact with a member of this group and was able to get some excerpts
from their upcoming book.
The Rake
A Suicide Note: 1954
As I prepare to take my life, I feel It necessary to assuage any guilt or pain
I have introduced through this act. It is not the fault of anyone other than
him. For once I awoke and felt his presence. And once I awake and saw his
fome. Dance again I awoke and heard his voice, and looked into his eyes. I
cannot sleep without fear of what I might next awake to experience. I
cannot ever wake. Goodbye.
Found In the same wooden box were two empty envelopes addressed to
William and Rose, and one loose personal letter with no envelope.
Dearest Linnie,
I have prayed for you. He spake your name.'
A Journal Entry [translated from Spanish}: CBDD
I have experience the greatest terror. I have experienced the greatest
terror. I have experienced the greatest terror. I see his eyes when I close
mine. They are hollow. Black. They saw me and pierced me. His wet hand. I
will not sleep. His voice {unintelligible text).
A Mariner’: Log: 1591
He came to me In my sleep. From the foot of my bed I felt a sensation. He
took everything. We must return to England. We shall not return here again
at the request of the Rake.
From a Witness: EDDIE
Three years ago, I had Just returned from a trip from Niagara Falls with my
family for the Ath of July. We were all very exhausted after a long day of
driving, so my husband and I put the kids right to bed and called It a night.
At about aam, I wake up thinking my husband had gotten up to use the
resi' oom. I used the moment to steal back the sheets, only to wake him in
the process. I appologized and told him I though he got out of bed. When
he turned to face me, he gasped and pulled his feet up from the end of the
bed so quickly his knee almost knocked me out of the bed. He then grabbed
me and said nothing.
After adjusting to the dark for a half second, I was able to see what caused
the strange reaction. At the foot of the bed, sitting and facing away from
us, there was what appeared to be a naked man, or a large hairless dag of
some sort. It' s body position was disturbing and unnatural, as If It had been
hit by a car or something. For some reason, I was not instantly frightened
by it, but more concerned as to its condition. At this paint I was somewhat
under the assumption that we were supposed to help him.
My husband was peering over his arm and knee, tucked Into the fetal
position, occasionally glancing at me before returning to the creature.
In a flurry of motion, the creature scrambled around the side of the bed,
and then cowled quickly In a flailing sort of motion right along the bed until
it was less than a foot from my husband' s face. The creature was
completely silent for about 30 seconds ( probably closer to 5, It just
seemed like a while) just looking at my husband. The creature then placed
Its hand on his knee and can into the hallway, leading to the kids' rooms.
I screamed and ran for the lightswitch, planning to stop him before he hurt
my children. When I got to the hallway, the light from the bedroom was
enough to see it crouching and hunched over about 20 feet away. He turned
around and looked directly at me, covered in blood. I flipped the switch on
the wall and saw my daughter Clara.
The creature can dawn the stairs while my husband and I rushed to help
our daughter. She was very badly injured and spake only once more in her
short life. She said "he is the Rake".
My husband drove his car into a lake that night, while rushing our daughter
to the hospital. He did not survive.
Being a small town, news got around pretty quickly. The police were helpful
at first, and the local newspaper took a lot of interest as well. However, the
story was never published and the local television news never followed up
Far several months, my son Justin and I stayed in a hotel near my parent' s
house. After we decided to return home, I began looking far answers
myself. I located a man in the next town over who had a similar
story. We got in contact and began talking about our experiences. He knew
of two other people in New Tark who had seen the creature we now
referred to as the Rake.
It took the four of us about two solid years of hunting on the Internet and
writing letters to come up with a small collection of what we believe to be
accound of the Rake. None of them gave any details, history or follow up.
One Journal had an entry Involving the creature in its first 3 pages, and
never mentioned it again. A ship' s log explained nothing of the encounter,
saying only that they were told to leave by the Rake. That was the last
entry in the log.
There were, however, many instances where the creatures visit was one of
a series of vaults with the same person. Multiple people also mentioned
being spoken to, my daughter included. This led us to wander If the Rake
had visited any of us before our last encounter.
I set up a digital recorder near my bed and left it running all night, every
night, for two weeks. I would tediously scan through the sounds of me
rolling around in my bed each day when I woke up. By the end of the
second week, I was quite used to the occasional sound of sleep while
blurring through the recording at B times the normal speed. (This still took
almost an hour every day)
On the first day of the third week, I thought I heard something different.
What I found was a shrill voice. It was the Rake. I cant listen to it long
enough to even begin to transcribe it. I haven’ t let anyone listen to it yet.
All I know is that I' heard It before, and I now believe that it spake when
it was sitting in front of my husband. I don' t remember hearing anything at
the time, but for some reason, the voice on the recorder immediately brings
me back to that moment.
The thoughts that must have gone through my daughter' s head make me
very upset.
I have not seen the Rake since he ruined my We, but I know that he has
been in my room while I slept. I know and fear that one night I' ll wake up
to see him staring at me.
