The Passenger

I am now really scared to drive after this crazy experience!

I was on my way home from a late day at work. It was around 10:30 at night so it was dark. I saw someone from my headlights that wore a white sweater and ripped jeans doing that motion that they needed a ride. I wasn’t sure what to do because I was tired and just wanted to go home and sleep. Then I started thinking maybe this guy wanted the same so I decided to pull to a stop just to be nice. The guy immediately started opening the car door the moment I stopped and hopped in. “Where to mister,” I asked. “My house, just up six blocks and make a right,” he said. I started noticing how creepy this guy looked, his hood was covering his eyes and he was really pale. I started driving and I could feel him watching me. I glanced at him for a second and he was staring at me with possibly one of the scariest smiles ever. I tried to start up a conversation, like the cliched how is the weather. He wouldn’t talk back though, just stare at me with that face that I didn’t want to see anymore. I asked what he was doing at this time at night. Then his smile went away to almost a frown. “Don’t ask,” the guy muttered. Now this was starting to get really strange with him trying to avoid to talk to me and the way he kept staring at me. All I could do is take him where he needed to go. I just wanted to get this over with. I was now starting to regret picking this guy up.

We were a block away there when out of the blue, this guy actually said something. “Thank you,” were the words that came out of his mouth. At least this guy was polite enough to say thank you. As I glanced at him as he said that, his lips kept moving but no voice was coming out of him. While he was doing this, he also gave me that stare again. It really was creeping me out now. As I made the right turn on the sixth block, I noticed we were passing a cemetery. I looked to the passenger side off the car and noticed that the guy was GONE. I looked in my rear view mirror and saw the guy standing at the cemetery gate waving at me. I finally got to see his eyes and he had NO PUPILS! I was driving a car with a ghost in the passenger seat! I sped out of there and went home.

Now I take a different route to work and to home now because I don’t want to risk the same thing happening to me again. It was really scary for me and now I am paranoid to just drive my car!
