If there’s one thing I’ve learned in all my years watching Earth, it’s that people aren’t what they they may seem. There are shop-boys and there are boys who happen to work in shops for the time being, and trust me, Tristan: you’re no shop-boy.
The Flatwoods Monster is a cryptid that made it’s appearance in Flatwoods, West Virginia, in 1952. It was reported to be 10 ft tall and 4 ft wide. It appeared to be wearing a metal suit instead of being organic. Witnesses also claim that it had a cowl, similiar in shape to an ace of spades, that sat behind a round red head with two eyes, often descibed as portholes, that glowed green and orange. There’s a bit of discussion on whether the ‘suit’ was black and white or green, alongside if the being had arms or not.
At 7:15pm on September 12th, 1952, three boys witnessed a bright light dart across the sky. The object came to land on a farm, and once the boys saw it land, they ran back home to tell one of their mothers. The boys returned with a group of locals, to try and find whatever had landed there. A dog, that was with the group, ran ahead out of sight, only to run back to the group with it’s tail between it’s legs. The group reached the top of a hill, where the saw a pulsating ‘ball of fire’ about 50 ft away, and reported a strange mist that made their eyes and noses burn. One member of the group shone a flashlight near the object, revealing the Flatwoods Monster. The monster emitted a loud, shrill hissing noise, befor hovering towards the group. At this point, the group panicked and fled. Once they had returned home, the mother contacted the local sheriff and a news
reporter. The reporter collected a number of interviews and returned to
the site with the farmer later that night, where they reported that “there
was a sickening, burnt, metallic odor still prevailing”. The sheriff
and his deputy searched the area, but found no trace of the monster.
Okay, but am I the only one who thinks about what it would be like if you were friends with your favourite artist(s)?
Just think of all the love and support you’d more than likely get from them. Late night calls, good morning texts, y'know- the works. And think about being so close that when things get tough, having them come to you.
