Time in Germany
by H. Auten
It was November of 2002 in Germany. I had been living there for almost a year, had a new job and things were going pretty well. I enjoy exercising and would regularly go to the Army Air Base and workout in their excellent gym facilities. (They opened at 05:00, so it was really convenient to go there before work.) The Air Base was about three miles from our apartment, so it was close by, too.
Normally I went there throughout the work week, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, but one Friday they were closed for some reason and I decided to go in on Saturday morning, which I did... or actually I planned to go, but I never made it there.
I left our apartment at about 09:00, and my next memory is of myself standing in front of our apartment door over an hour later. I remember getting into my car, but that's it. I still have no clue where I was or what happened. We were able to determine that I had driven 20 or so miles. We checked the car for damage and any other evidence like mud or paint, etc. and found nothing (thankfully). We went to the gym the next day and I checked the sign in/sign out sheet for my signature, but I apparently was not there that day.
I was terrified. I had heard of "missing time" stories, but never imagined how frightening they actually could be. To this day, I still have no idea what happened.
you have a paranormal tale to tell?
