*Beep* My Pants

I have a story that was pretty freaky for me at the time; don't know if it will scare you guys though.

This past summer my friend Autumn and I spent the day at our friend Sarah’s house. Around six, we decided to go for a walk (there is a high school right across the street). Before we left for the walk Sarah’s mom asked us to buy a newspaper from one of those quarter paper dispenser box things. We got back from the walk around 8, but had forgotten to get the paper. So we go back outside and go to fetch the paper. It is pretty dark out by now.

We arrive at the newspaper dispense and couldn’t get the damn thing to open (we realized later that the price was different on sunday, and we hadn’t paid enough). We were at the thing, trying to get a paper for about 5 minutes when we noticed headlights. We turn around and see there is a car coming down the street – slowly -- with its high-beams on, so of course we couldn’t see anything. The car then turned off its lights and just sat there in the middle of the road, about 30 feet away from us. We realized something was up, so we slowly started to walk away. We turned a corner onto another street and then we hid among some trees and bushes. After a few seconds we see the car drive by.

We decided the cost was clear and we went back to the machine (stupid us) to get the newspaper. A moment after we reached the machine we saw that the car and come back around and was sitting at the corner! We didn’t even hear it, and it’s lights were off. At this point I was about to *beep* my pants. The guy in the passenger seat stuck his head out the window and asked if we needed help. We were about to say something ,but then we noticed the guy in the drivers seat had a rubber mask on! This just did it! We ran full speed in the opposite direction. Luckily, the car didn't follow us and we made it safely to my friend’s house.

I still wonder what that man was up to in that mask. Nonetheless, it scared the *beep* out of me
