Did you ever went through a situation that made you get an adrenaline rush and got your heart beating faster as fear overwhelmed you? Spoiler I went through such a situation around 2-3 years ago, it scared me like hell and still gives me chills when I recall it. So, at the corner of my street there's an abandoned library which over the years was used as "shelter" by homeless people or occasionally gypsies. Now, I never saw anyone there but since the windows that face the road are broken I could always see leftovers such as alcohol bottles and other trash left behind. My boyfriend was working in night shifts or was getting out of work in the evening during that period, so I had the habit of going out to meet him around those hours (10-11 PM), thing that required me to take a bus and travel like 30 minutes with it to finally get to him. Now, in one of those usual nights, I was coming home with my bus (which would normally have a station at my street's corner). It was December or January, around 11 and a half PM, with me sitting in a nearly empty bus when I was preparing to get down to my bus station. However, for some reason the driver didn't notice me wanting to go down at my street's corner and took me 1 station further where I could finally get down to go home. All nice and well, fortunately it wasn't a big distance so I didn't worry too much about it. However, as I was approaching my street's corner I could see 3 shadowy figures in the distance, the body shapes looked like tall and bulky men, one of which seemed to try entering one of the windows of the abandoned library while another one was helping him. Now, fear started creeping into me as I recalled all those empty alcohol bottles which were usually seen left behind in that library, as I noticed there's no person on the street except me and them and how there's not even 1 single car passing by either. In that moment I decided to cross the road from where I was standing (there's no way in Hell I would walk right next to them) and continued my walk on the other side of the road. The sad thing was that I still had to cross the road back so I can get to my street, which was starting right after I pass the library from that corner. As I was silently judging how I should move and where I should go, I noticed they didn't look in my direction at all, they were too busy trying to get inside those windows, so they most likely didn't hear or see me, which made it possible for me to cross the street and silently walk at around 4-5 metres away of them for a few seconds. The moment I passed the corner I could see a few empty beer bottles down and that's when all my initial calm evaporated and I started running towards my house without looking back or slowing down. I thankfully reached my house safely and nothing happened to me, but I was trembling and I felt like crying at the fear that I felt and the "what if" thoughts that overwhelmed me afterwards. This is something I will never forget and I could only thank God that the bus didn't stop at the right station, which probably saved me from situation in which they were still drinking outside without trying to get inside the library (and then it would be impossible for them not to see me). I don't need to say that I stopped going out alone at such hours since that night.
