Creepy 2022

 "Pounding on the door, in the middle of the night," the woman told me after the conclusion of one of our downtown walks through an old cemetery.

"My husband and I were upstairs, watching Netflix. I follow him downstairs, and it's our neighbor Jim. He has our dog, Ronnie, on a leash. My husband and I are surprised because we always take Ronnie out for his last bathroom break at ten in the evening, and then he sleeps in the kitchen. We thanked Jim, and he handed the leash to us and left, wishing us a good evening. As my husband and I walk upstairs, we see Ronnie come out of the kitchen, and he's standing there staring at us. It takes a second to register, and when it does, my husband and I let out a shriek of fear and confusion. My husband Ted is looking at his hands; he's losing it. There's no leash, and there isn't a dog attached to it that looks like Ronnie. We had to sit with this one and think about it for a long while. The two of us finally got up the courage to look at the ring camera. We were horrified to see two very black shadows walk up to our door and ring the bell. The black shadows morphed into our neighbor Jim and our dog Ronnie when the porch light goes on. We moved out of that place shortly after," the woman said. 

"Where was that place you lived at?" I asked the woman.

"Ocean Pointe," she replied.

I chuckled and shook my head, "Figures."
