The Pedestrian Crossing is a short and creepy urban legend from Japan.
One evening, I was standing at the pedestrian crossing on a busy street, waiting for the light to change. I looked over at the people who were standing on the other side of the street and a chill went down my spine.
There was a woman standing opposite me who looked very strange. At first I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me. I could see her pants and jacket perfectly, but her face and hands were a complete blur.
I rubbed my eyes and looked again, but it made no difference. Her face was fuzzy and indistinct. I got the strangest impression that I could almost see through her. It was extremely unsettling.
The light turned green and people began to walk across the pedestrian crossing. The woman appeared to be walking straight towards me.
I began walking across the intersection, veering to the left, attempting to avoid her. It didn’t work. She changed direction and walked right up to me.
We passed in the middle of the street, and as she walked by me, I heard her hiss: “I know you can see me!”
