At The Lake

Saya: a nice little story to start with..:)


This happened a few years ago when I was camping by Lake Honsu.
In the middle of night as we sat around the fire I heard a woman scream from the direction of the lake.

"Heeeeelp! Anyooooone!"

I turned my head towards the lake and and saw a woman drowning in it.
I jumped to my feet, thinking I must help her quickly.

I was about to throw myself into the water when my friend said:
"What are doing?" He tried to pull me back.
"What am I doing? We've got to help her!"
I replied but he said;
"Cool your head down and look again! You know she's very far from us. But it's picth black! How is it possible that we can see her face so clearly!?"
His words made me look towards the lake again.

Then I realized the woman had stopped struggling in the water and was now staring steadily at us.
But the water was too deep for anyone to stand in! And as my friend said it was pitch black around us, yet I could see every detail of her face.
Her face looked strangely luminous although the light from our fire was too faint to reach that far.

Totally freaked out, we immediately packed everything up and left. We tried not to look towards the lake while we packed but I could feel her eyes following our every move.
I swear I'll never go to that place again...!

  13. That really really is freaky..I always wanted to go and see the sights of Japan in all of it's glory, no matter what time it was but I remember all the freaky stories I hear and get told.

    My friend, Hayame, told me to vote for you. That one little snippet is really bone chilling but I was considering to ask if you heard of a PS2 game called "Okami". A lot of the Japanese "mythology" was in it. I was wondering if you wrote anything, or know anything of it. I'll leave my facebook link. I hope I get the chance to talk to you about it soon =)

    Creepy story, I wonder where in the world it came from... The woman could have been any number of things I suppose o_o...

  26. I go by the name Uitinla
    this story is interesting, reminds me of a couple urban legends telling of a "Banshie" woman who looks to be in trouble and when one goes to help, she devours him. also reminds me of a "Siren" a beautiful half marine creature and half humanoid who sings so beautifully it lures men to dive off their boats to get closer to her. and she grabs onto them and drags them to the deep depths where their bones will pile in her vast collection of victims. but the siren's song only affects men(so its told) very interesting story, glad the story teller didn't jump in, she may have stayed in there.

  29. I just read this and remember about something my mother told me. She said our family from are not allowed to go across the lake by using boat. When I ask why, she didn't explained well. But she said lake is dangerous, and sometimes "something" lived there for a long time, and "that thing" like to trap human who go near or inside the lake.

    My mother has a high 6th sense (but now she refuse his ability and being normal), so did my cousins, and my grandfather. Many people from my mother's bloodline have this ability. I'm glad I'm normal~ :)

    Btw, be careful if you go near the lake... ><

  30. @Dita: that's interesting. It certainly makes me not to want to go near the lake! lol Yeah I'll be careful, thank you :D
