Enjoy:

For college I lived in a coastal Californian town and frequented the clubbing scene. There was a particular part of the town that was essentially a city of mansions. The feeling in this area during the day had a sense of confusion. The roads made no sense and you could easily find yourself driving in circles or even leaving at points opposite of where you headed. I had always chalked this up to the winding roads easily defeating my sense of direction. Because of this, it was easy to avoid police checkpoints and it was a shortcut to the college.

At night though, it became something else entirely. The roads lacked lights or any illumination whatsoever and tall oaks obscured the sky. I became convinced that something was watching me when I took those roads. I dismissed these feelings to the normal ‘creepy road’ phenomena and it stayed that way for awhile.

After one particular night I was driving a couple friends home (I was the DD) and decided to take a shortcut I knew through the roads when I saw someone walking along the road up ahead wearing a hoodie and jeans. I thought nothing of it until I noticed a limp in his gait and decided to give him a ride wherever he needed to go. Perhaps even the hospital if need be.

Pulling up past it I rolled down the window and asked it if it needed anything. A row of jagged teeth and hollow eyes greeted me and my friends. The teeth were arranged in a stretched smile. The car immediately erupted into screams and yells to drive and so I did. However, the more I panicked the less sense the roads began to make every turn became more confusing and frightening. Whats worse is that at every turn the thing was there to greet us with its smile and clawed fingers pointed directly at me.

What should have been a five minute drive became at least thirty minutes of squealing tires and sobs. This is where it hit me, the more panicked and frightened I became the worse things got. Pulling my willpower together I put my fear aside and concentrated on getting out of these roads. The next turn took me to a road along a small lake leading out of those cursed roads. I took one look back to see the Smiling Man curling one of his fingers, beckoning me back.

I'm browsing a site that has a section called NoSleep hahah I'll keep feeding you the ones I like, a lot of them are apparently true so sometimes they are really long at the scare value is super low because its probably their imagination making them think they heard something or saw something "in the corner of their eye" of course

Yeah man, the rule of the section is:
Everything you read in nosleep is true; please suspend your disbelief while you are here.

I'm sure its a combination of: true, false, imagination

Its where I found stuff on the midnight man, apparently ppl have written about it

Oh def- haha some user just posted this

Most important rule: DO NOT provoke the midnight man in ANY WAY. I did. At approximately 1:24 I screamed "HEY MIDNIGHT MAN, GO COUNT YOUR DICK!" There was a huge crash, and I fucking freaked. In the morning, it was my TV, which had fallen off the cabinet and smashed into a mess. So, if you like your TV, don't provoke the MNM.


Go count your dick

Meh. Didn't like this one so much. Too rushed. Didn't find it very scary.

I liked it because it reminded me of the "scary stories to read in the dark" which are usually a series of brief to the point encounters that are more cautionary and as warnings than detailed stories which are fun because there are so many to read.

I feel like this one kind of has a moral though to not take risks when your in need
