User Story: Too Close of an Encounter
One night, I was in the forest behind my house and I decided to pull out the app due to the fact that I had gotten some great evidence back there. An example would be when I heard a some leaves cracking behind me. So I whipped around to find nothing there and the app saying “Fear” which was exactly what I felt. However, that’s nothing compared to what happened that night. At first, the app was just giving me random words like “Texas”. I was slightly disappointed but still glad to see that the spirits were still there. Suddenly, I felt very weak to the point where I had to lay against some nearby rocks. When I looked at the device, it said one word that I will not forget, “Slave”. At that point, I knew I had to get out of there. Unfortunately, I had to take the long way around as a group of bats had made a nest in the tunnel I had come through while I was investigating. Part of me feels that those bats were there to block me on purpose. I did eventually make it back home to my parents who had started looking for me. I eventually found out that there used to be a military base not far from where I was. Perhaps one or more of the soldiers who worked there didn’t want to leave.
