This happened when I was nine years old. I’m now 28. Me and my friends Bill, Mark, Ben, were planning a sleepover before school started back up. So we decided it would be Ben’s house. We did what all boys do – watch movies, play video games and pranks. We decided to tell scary stories too. We all told ours except for Ben he started telling his about a woman who lived here like 70 years ago. She was a witch. She had killed her 9 boys in the lake behind their house. She brings them to the lake and drowns them. After that we went to bed about four hours.
Later, I heard a sound like snag, drag, snag, drag as if someone was dragging wet clothing. I hit Ben and say ‘good try but not falling for that’. I heard it again. I hit him again. He said it wasn’t him. We both heard it and we woke up Bill and Mark and they heard it too. It went silent for what seemed like forever. All of us got up and opened the door. We saw that there was water all over the hallway and into the kitchen where the backyard door was. We followed the water and that’s when we saw it. An ugly dripping wet lady with yellow red eyes. We legged it out of there. We stayed awake until the morning.
Vive years later, Ben and Bill drowned in the lake. They said it was boat accident. Me and mark know what really killed them! To this day, I don’t go near any body of water. Mark moved to Texas after high school. We both fear water. I don’t let my son nearby any body of water either.
