The Camper Van is a funny scary story about two friends who spend the night camping in the woods and get the feeling they are not alone.
Let me tell you about the scariest moment of my life. It happened when I was a teenager. My friend and I wanted to go camping in the woods. We decided to sleep in an abandoned camper van we found deep in the forest.
So one weekend, we hiked out to where the camper van was. By the time we reached it, it was dark. We opened the rusty door and climbed inside.
It was a miserable night. The rain was lashing down outside. The wind was shrieking and the camper van was creaking and groaning. We even thought we heard something or someone walking around outside.
“Probably just an animal,” we reassured ourselves.
Both of us were scared and nervous, but we tried to act brave and pretend we were having a good time.
In the middle of the night, I was awoken by a strange noise. I sat up in bed and that was when I noticed something out of the corner of my eye. In the small window at the other end of the camper van, I saw a shadow moving.
At first, I thought it just the shadow of a tree, but then I realized it was human. It looked like a man’s silhouette. It seemed as if he was standing outside the window, staring in at us.
I reached out to grab my friend and wake him up, but the man outside moved. I froze. My heart was beating fast and I was sweating. I couldn’t take my eyes off the shadowy man outside.
I hissed at my friend to wake up.
“What’s wrong?” he mumbled.
“Someone’s watching us,” I hissed. “Do you see him?”
“I see him,” he whispered.
For the next ten minutes, we just sat there, staring at the man’s shadow, hardly daring to move. The man stood there motionless and stared back at us. The longer we stared at him, the more terrified we became.
Eventually, my friend decided to shine the flashlight in his eyes. We thought maybe that would scare him away.
As soon as he switched on the flashlight, we realized our horrible mistake.
There was no window on the other side of the camper. It was a mirror.
For the past ten minutes, we had been staring at my reflection.
