We’ve all heard scary stories involving ghosts, but what about scary stories involving phantom bugs? This kid shared one of his personal stories that took place in Italy, near the Alps. One afternoon, in particular, he walked down to his friend’s yard, only to find it covered in bugs. He couldn’t figure out what kind of bugs they were but thought they were locusts.
As he was about to turn and run, he saw a mass in the middle of the yard. “I then realized it was the dog, just laying, covered in bugs. I thought it might be dead but I ran to it and pulled on his collar. He just looked up at me and then put his head back down. I kept pulling and I was yelling for the neighbor kid. No one responded. I then convinced the dog to get up and at this point bugs were also covering me and I was terrified.”
To try and save the dog, he pulled him into the shed, hid, and cried. He was in there for no more than 10 minutes when he heard a knock on the door. It was the neighbor, who began yelling at him. Behind him, the yard was empty and free of the plague of bugs. They had disappeared. He couldn’t explain the strange occurrence and never went there again (via Playbuzz).
