On two separate occasions, I was working as a cashier in a grocery store, when I saw someone I knew lined up in my checkout point. They were staring at me with big round eyes, and I became very afraid and started shaking. I couldn't understand why this person would come to my store. I had to keep working, so there was nothing I could do but serve this person, while keeping my eyes averted from his face, which had the most livid expression on it!
On the second occasion, about two weeks later, this person came through my lane again, and he was more subdued. I tried to notice everything about him: his shoes, his face, his hands (the thumb on his right hand looked like it was pretty sore), when all of a sudden, I saw his face change into a terrifying mask! The lower lip pulled down in a grimacing smile, revealing crooked teeth, the eyes widened, and at that point, I looked away in a hurry! At that time, though, this second encounter was not too terrible, and ended peacefully.
There was an awful storm brewing that day, and as I left work, I was involved in a car accident. About a week later, I called the person who I thought it was and asked to see him. At our meeting, I asked him why he was coming to my work, and he repeatedly insisted that it was not him. After going completely pale, I then looked at his left hand, which was not too badly damaged, and then I demanded to see the right hand, to see the thumb. He snatched his right hand away, claiming that thumbs were personal and that it was "a mess right now." Too shocked to speak, I thought to myself, "I know it's a mess; I saw it." At some point in our meeting, I saw his eyes begin to widen, and that lower lip started to drop down and reveal the splintery teeth, and again I looked away. He acted very strangely and I felt paralyzed with shock and disbelief.
Our meeting came to an end, and I went home completely numb. I was so upset, I began to bleed - a very bad sign and omen. I keep completely away from this person now, and I pray that he stays away from me. But I am still haunted. Please don't use my name because I am still sorting this out and I don't want the added burden of ridicule. But I wish someone who knows about these kinds of things could help me. I am a sane and peaceful individual who would never do anything to harm anyone, but this thing was almost my undoing. I've left out details for the sake of brevity, but I tell you, it was the strangest thing I have ever experienced. Has anyone else had a doppelganger stalker?
have a paranormal tale to tell?
