Title

[REQ] $60, to be repaid $75 (4/6/16) (#Bakersfield, CA, USA)

Post contents

My old car died on me, forcing me to buy a new one. It's nothing fancy, but it's newer and reliable. Anyways, due to having to make my first payments on certain dates (insurance 21th, car payment 26th) it's basically taking my whole check from me. I need to drive to Sacramento to settle a ticket I got with my last car this Friday and I need gas to get to and from Sacramento as it'll take a whole tank their and back.
I'm asking for $60, and I'll repay that plus $15 interest on 4/6/16. I've done a loan on here before, but the bot might say I haven't repaid it, when I have. The loaner hasn't been on Reddit in a month to post that I've paid it. Here's screenshots of the payments I made. I made them when I said I would and I'll try to get in contact with him to have him post paid. I will pay on time. Thank you for looking.

SUMMARY:
Blog post by user NAME REDACTED.
BEGIN ENTRY:
There's a tiny building in the oilfields outside Bakersfield that I will avoid for the rest of my life.
If you've ever driven between SoCal and NorCal, you know exactly the long stretch of nowhere I'm talking about. You take Interstate 5 with the tourists and the truckers, up the Grapevine and out into a thousand miles of California farmland, past Bakersfield, avoiding Fresno, as one should.
But if you do this drive enough times (like, for example, if you live in Los Angeles and your family lives in San Francisco), you start to get bored, and look for things to do along the way.
My mistake was getting bored.
I have this book called Weird California about odd places and bizarre stuff, and a lot of them are out here in the farmland -- this area just kind of breeds weirdness in people. Last time I made the drive, it was the World's Largest Box of Raisins at the Sun Maid headquarters in Kingsburg (which was fine, but honestly just a big box), but this time I wanted to try something spookier. Something more fun, at least.
In a place called Elk Hills, west of I-5 and 119, you'll find a gigantic oilfield -- machines pumping away all across the desert hills. Here's the closest I could get; Google Earth doesn't allow you inside the actual oilfield grounds (which should have been a warning sign). Didn't notice the doubling glitch on the oil pump until now:
https://i.imgur.com/6TGJgM1.png
What the book says is that, in the middle of this oilfield, there's a tiny windowless building with a radio antenna. You take a scanner near it, and you can hear a voice reciting numbers and letters, over and over, different every time. These things should be in the middle of Siberia, but here's one just off the highway, in a lonely oilfield, just outside Bakersfield.
California has its own special little numbers station.
That's worth a visit, right?
I get the only equipment I have: a cheap scanner I got on Amazon, because I live in a big city called Los Angeles engulfed in frantic chaos every other day, and I thought who knows, maybe something like this would be useful.
But I digress.
I load up my (girlfriend's) car and start driving, heading north, and I make it to Elk Hills in about two hours. The oilfield doesn't even have a full fence around it; if you're trying to get in, you can get in, it's practically an invitation. There's nobody here -- no cars, no workers, no security, just a ton of oil pumps churning away and some lost chickens pecking around, wandering over from the farmland.
And then, there it is. At the top of the next hill. Tiny windowless building with a radio antenna. Chain link fence around it; boxed in.
I turn on the scanner and I hear numbers right away.
"Echo Alpha Charlie incoming, over… Echo Alpha Charlie incoming, over… Copy."
First thought is Holy shit, I got something. The big dumb Mulder and Scully instincts come alive, I can't help it. I floor it. I'm driving up the hill, and the voice comes back on the scanner. Same guy, same tone.
"Echo Alpha Charlie incoming, request to execute, over."
I'm lifting my foot off the gas before I even realize it. "Request to execute" aren't the kinds of words I'm expecting to hear.
I pull over, I get out, I leave the car. I'm looking up, scanning the horizon -- can't explain why, don't know what I'm looking for. A helicopter? Spy plane? "Incoming" what? All I hear are chickens pecking and oil pumps churning, a low industrial hum in every direction.
The voice speaks at the same moment I look back at the car and I realize it.
"Echo Alpha Charlie stopped, request to execute, over."
Staring back at me, a California license plate: 5EAC279.
The voice repeats.
"Echo Alpha Charlie stopped, request to execute target, over."
I'm moving. I'm back in the car, I'm hitting the gas. I'm trying not to freak out.
"Target is advancing, request to execute, over."
I slam on the brakes. Violent U-turn. Back the way I came.
"Target is aggressive, request to execute, over."
I pull over, I'm panicking. I'm out of the car, raising my hands, not even sure where to look or what to say, just hoping to--
"Target is surrendering, over."
Am I?
I guess I am.
Who am I surrendering to?
I've never felt such silence before, until the voice returns, and I know disappointment when I hear it.
"Copy. Disengaging, recalling unit."
Unit?
Noise across the road. Something in the hills, just over the crest. Could be chickens. Could be my nerves.
"Target appears to understand."
I look up the road, to the tiny windowless building on the next hill, watching over.
"Target is ordered to have a nice day."
The scanner goes quiet with a squawk.
I get in and I keep driving and I'm gone. Next time I'm taking the interstate; whatever that place is, I'm staying out of range.

2020.08.21 01:39 Yum3k0_S4n My Number 1 Fan

Massachusetts
Let me start off by saying that I am, by no means, famous. I still don’t know what is happening to this day. I am currently hiding somewhere in California where I hope that they won’t be able to find me. Right now, hiding in the big states is the only thing I can do, as I have to stay safe in numbers by hiding among the sea of people in big cities.
There is no telling what may happen to me if I were to be found, and just how far these psychos would take things. I don’t even know how many of them are in it on this, and the only thing I could do now is to report it to the police, and anonymously share it on the internet to raise awareness. Whatever is going after me is definitely not human.
Well, I guess it’s useless if I keep ranting about my current situation. I should start by telling you what happened on that Wednesday.
I’m from the small, but densely populated state of Massachusetts. Massachusetts is where the good jobs, good schools, and a city where it’s hard not to be decently rich. I have a nice house between the cities of Boston and Hartford. I received the daily mail there, and it was ads for grocery stores, and 10% off coupons that I find pretty useless unless you absolutely are addicted to bananas, apples, and pickles. There are a few envelopes from companies trying to get customers, and a few things about my healthcare. I saw that there was one envelope that had my name handwritten in flawless cursive on the back, and the return address was from somewhere in rural Texas. I opened that letter.
Dear Mr. J
We are the biggest fans of your works! We just want you to know that we love seeing you out there and doing these amazing things. We aspire to be like you one day.
-Your fan club (J’s Fanclub)
All of a sudden, I had a fan club? I figured that this was cool, and that I am actually known somewhere. However, the thing is that, I don’t work in the music, writing, humanitarian, or showbiz industry. I have absolutely no idea what it’s about because I’m just a normal person like everyone else. My job is within a large company, but it’s not enough to get fame of any sort. I thought that the sender simply sent this letter to the wrong person, and some celebrity probably has the same name as me.
The thing that stumped me was that, if you were to send fan mail to a celebrity, wouldn’t you have to research their address, and make sure that you are sending it to the right person? I shouldn’t disclose my name right now, but Massachusetts doesn’t have a whole lot of celebrities, and the ones that share a similar name with me are nowhere near this state. I figured that this was simply a mistake from a kid who simply missent a letter to their favorite artist. Well, I guess I was wrong.
The next day, there was more mail for me, and this time, there were 3 of them from my “fan club”. 2 of the letters were in rural Texas, and the 3rd one was from Bakersfield, California. The letters were along the lines of, “Hi, we’re your biggest fans,” or “Thank you for inspiring me!” Now, it can’t be possible for multiple people to mistake me for a celebrity right? Especially, when there are literally none living around me, and my name isn’t even out there. This is when I felt that something was off. This isn’t enough for me to go up to the police with, but it is enough for me to stay alert and expect more letters.
Another strange thing was that there was something I had previously overlooked on the first letter. There was a website for the fan club.
The link was handwritten in red ink, and I grabbed my laptop to search it up. The website itself looked so professional, and there were buttons that trigger animations that let you access different parts of it. The homepage had a white and blue aesthetic and it had my name everywhere. The front had, “Welcome to J’s Fan club” in huge bold font. There were no pictures of me, just my name, and my middle initial.
No matter how nice all this is, and how non-threatening this all seemed, I just can't get over how creepy this is. I literally live alone, and I don’t do any work that involves the media, or getting my name known. Yet, there are people in these random places in the middle of nowhere who somehow know who I am, and what I do.
I figured that everyone, or at least many people have fan clubs like these, and they simply don’t know about it.
Well, the more I thought about that idea, it made less and less sense and it looks like I’m the only one who is somehow famous without ever being famous?
I’m supposed to fly to New York for the weekend and have a little vacation there because my job is off for 4 days due to holidays. I packed my bags that day, and flew down to a hotel in the big city of NYC, Times Square.
Prior to leaving, I put up a sign up on my door to let the UPS, FedEx, or the mailman know that I’m out of town and to stack any mail that I have. I have alerts on my phone for whatever comes to my house in Massachusetts, and I know exactly what is at my doorstep.
Now, I kept checking that website, and nothing happened there during my vacation. However, I received dings for things from the delivery people that a package has arrived at my door. I got on the plane and turned off the Wi-Fi on my phone, so I could sleep this whole thing off. It was a 2-3 hour flight, and I felt more or less okay again.
Well, that is until I found the stacks, and stacks of things that were sent to my house. I approached the pile of things, and my phone blew up because I was reconnected to Wi-Fi. There were 17 notifications on my phone which was sent to me in the 2-3 hours that I was on the plane. They were all packages addressed to me from Texas, South Dakota, Wyoming, Montana, and North Carolina. They were t-shirts, and hoodies, and pillowcases that are from the website.
There were probably 20 letters in the mailbox, and there was practically nothing but letters in there. After doing the painstaking job of unboxing all the packages, I took a look on the website, and my blood ran ice-cold.
There were about 30 photos of me from my trip to NYC, and it wasn’t like I was just off to the side, or a quarter of my face in the corner. I was in the middle of each picture, and 20 out of the 30 are taken from probably within a foot or so away from me. The photos were of me at Broadway, the subway, the Twin Tower memorial, and on a boat to see the Statue of Liberty.
I looked at the bottom of the page and it said, “Did you enjoy your trip?”
I took this down to the police station, and they told me that they were going to put my neighborhood on high surveillance. However, for me, I didn’t feel like that was enough to stop this from happening.
There was no way that this is an accident now. This is intentional stalking, and harassment. I didn’t know what I was supposed to do, but I have to do something about this. Or else it would never end.
Florida
You know, I love waking up on winter mornings in slippers, pjs, and a nightcap. When the birds are chirping at 6 AM, but you fall back to sleep for another hour.
This morning was just that. I took a shower, and put on some comfortable clothes to start my day. I was in a good mood, and I thought that today was just one of those days.
Well, I guess that would be too good to be true. I was right.
I entered the living room and I froze on the spot in absolute terror.
There, on the TV stand, were 5 Polaroid cameras, with a bunch of film on the floor. When I picked up the pictures, I could feel my blood go cold, and I started to break out in a cold sweat.
There were about 50 fucking photos of me sleeping all scattered on the floor. Most of them were close-ups, and the rest were from the backyard window.
Of course, they used the damn backyard window to get in. There are no cameras there, and I rushed to the Boston Police Department and demanded to see the street footage after showing them the photos of me being taken.
After checking that I have had a similar complaint recently, they let me check the camera footage from last night. Sure enough, my backyard was one of the blind spots, and seeing that no one appeared on the footage at all during the night, I assumed the culprits escaped through other small blind spots that the cameras couldn’t catch.
I thought that this whole thing would stop after the few dozen packages and letters that I got, but no, they decided to enter my fucking house, and snap photos of me in my sleep.
That was the last straw.
I packed my shit, and I was ready to leave the state. Where am I supposed to go? I plan to stay down at my mother’s property in Florida for a while. My parents are divorced, and life has taken them both on separate paths.
My mom and dad had both written me into their wills to inherit property after they die, and when they died, I get to rent those places out to tenants to make extra money. My dad has a separate place that I inherited and both are able to be rented. However, both houses are vacant, so I was able to escape Boston, and head down to sunny Miami-Dade.
My mom’s house was a little bigger, and with a basement. I unpacked, but I didn’t fully unpack knowing that anything may happen. However, I felt a little more at home since my mom’s house is actually where I grew up. I only moved to Massachusetts because I was fortunate enough to get accepted into their top university to study law, and journalism.
The previous tenants moved out the month before, and they cleaned the area thoroughly before leaving. I placed half of my belongings in the right areas, and by that time, night fell. I grabbed some tea by the counter, and sat there in silence with my thoughts. That moment was short-lived though.
I got my laptop to watch a few videos on Youtube and get my mind off of it, but the tab to the fan club website was still open. I saw that the website was updated, and that there were now multiple pictures of me on the website. I realized that there was more than just the homepage. There was a section called “Photos” which I clicked on.
My eyes widened as I saw that there were probably 500 or so photos of me. A lot of them were recent, including the ones of me when I slept. However, there were pictures of me from kindergarten, and 8th grade which I never knew existed. These photos all had one thing in common.
They were all taken without my knowledge.
Not a single photo had me looking at the camera. I was the center of all the photos, but I never knew that I was being photographed at that moment. In the ones from my childhood, my parents are always in the background, so it can’t be them.
This fan club is not a new thing.
It has always been around.
I just never found out about it, and neither did my parents.
My website surfing stopped abruptly, as I heard some faint tapping on the windows of my mother’s house.
“Hey there,” I heard. I jumped up, and I stared in the kitchen window that was locked with the blinders closed.
“Can I get an autograph?” the voice continued.
“What the fuck, please leave me alone.” I tried to tell them off, and that's when I heard another voice coming from the backyard door.
“Why though? We’re your number 1 fans,” a woman said. I rushed to that door and locked both locks.
“Why won’t you let us in?” that woman said.
I heard tapping from the kitchen window, then the backyard door, then came some more tapping from the front door.
“We tried to tell you with those pictures we took.” The voice from the front door sounded like a teenager, and I decided to lock all the windows, doors, and entrances. Anything that I was able to lock, I locked.
“Leave me alone, please,” I repeated, “What do you want from me? I’m not famous, nor am I well-known. Why are you so obsessed with me?!”
“You are special,” came a 4th voice.
“Just get the fuck away from me!” I was yelling. I called the police at that moment, and in the panic, I bumped my hip into the table. A mug fell off, and shattered into pieces. I was so frantic that I could barely even get a grip on the phone.
“Are you trying to call the police on us?” Another voice, the voice of a man, came through the wall.
“Fuck yes I am, now leave me alone, or in the next 10 minutes I will have you all arrested.
“We came such a long way to find you,” said the woman in the backyard.
“I DON’T GIVE A SHIT!” I was screaming at the top of my lungs. “Go back to Texas, or North Dakota, or wherever the fuck you’re from! Just leave me alone!”
“We came for your autograph, don’t you know?”
“I’m not giving out any autographs, and I will have every one of you sick fucks in jail for this!” I dialed 911 and called the Miami police, and they would be there in 8 minutes.
I heard a ding from my laptop, and I saw that the website was updated. Now, there were even more photos, but as I scrolled to the bottom, I screamed out loud.
There were 5 new pictures of me from tonight that were probably taken a few seconds ago because it showed me calling the police.
The thing that scared me was that the picture was taken inside my house.
They were inside my fucking house.
“Don’t you get it Mr. J? You are special. We simply wanted an autograph for all of us. However, I wished that we didn’t have to do all this, or what we are about to do.”
That’s when I heard the tapping on the windows get progressively louder, until they were basically pounding on the windows of the house.
The banging was so loud that I rushed to get the basement keys. I took my laptop, phone, wallet, car keys into the basement, and I locked up all my valuables in a compartment.
That’s when I heard the glass on the windows of the house shatter.
I heard the splintering of the wood on the front door.
I then heard footsteps progressively getting faster, and that's when I realized that I had no time to lose.
I ran like a madman, into the basement, and locked both locks. I put old furniture against the door to secure it.
Above the basement, the sound of glass breaking, furniture and other things being moved. I heard the door getting broken down completely, and there were footsteps right above me. I put my hands over my mouth and tried not to cry. The footsteps paced up and down the stairs. I can also hear the clicking of Polaroid cameras, and snippets of conversation among the fan club members.
I opened the laptop to see even more photos posted of me drinking tea in the living room just a half hour before, and pictures of the basement door. There was no stopping them. They came from all over the country just to stalk me, and break into my house.
This isn’t cool anymore.
This is a signal, and a message.
All of the pictures, the mail, the packages, and the gifts were telling me something. The thing is that I can’t out-run these people.
They are my “fans,” but fans aren’t supposed to do these things. Fans aren’t supposed to take pictures of you without permission and idolize it when the person isn’t looking. Fans aren’t supposed to be breaking in and threatening the idol. Most importantly, fans aren’t supposed to chase the idol across the country and hunting them down just to get 1 fucking autograph. That simply is not normal. Actually, I guess the phrase “not normal” is a huge understatement in this case.
This is an obsession, but not just any obsession. This is on a scale where people have no limits to what they would do to satisfy their insatiable thirst to get what they want.
Finally, I heard the sound of sirens. The police were here. The members rushed out the door, and I looked out of the peephole to see that they were in the car, and had sped off. The police were here a minute later, and I removed the furniture barricades, and walked out the door.
The police asked me what they looked like, but I couldn’t give them anything on appearance because I shut the blinds, and I can’t see them. However, the police did have extra cameras for us, and the neighborhood surveillance was upgraded due to this incident, and our street will be highly monitored.
However, that wasn’t enough.
I was done with this shit. The only thing is that, I have no idea just how far these people will go, and at this rate, the possibilities are endless.
Nevada
I decided to tell the police how things happened, and asked them to shut down the website. They ended up their department that dealt with internet/virtual crimes, and it was shut down the next day.
I only have one last place left, and that’s my dad’s place. My dad was a good dad, but it was the tight money, and his mental illness or disability that prompted the divorce. I do get sad sometimes thinking about it because I would get nostalgic when I see the house and think of the good times I had with my dad over the summer further north in Carson City, Nevada.
I had to keep running though. Or else, who knows what these people will do to me the next time if I stay still. I hope these ‘fans’ of mine will know that, as long as they keep chasing me, I will always be able to run. The only problem is that I don’t know how long this would last, and just how long they can keep up.
I quit my job at my previous law firm, and had to settle down before I could re-apply for another law firm with similar standards.
I learned my lesson from the past few incidents and I decided to buy surveillance cameras for 2 sides of the house. It was one of those that also had microphones on the outside to let you hear what's going on.
I put one in the front, and another on the side of the house that shows the part I am unable to see via windows. I could see the entire backyard without the assistance of a camera since the bedroom window shows the entire area. There is also an app that I downloaded so that I can check both cameras via phone.
I can’t rely on the police to look over the house for me since they don’t even bother to think about it until something actually happens.
This time, weeks went by without anything happening. When I realized that the whole thing had probably stopped, and that I can kick back a little.
During my stay here, I decided to buy a little wine, and beer for myself to relax and somehow forget about what happened these past few weeks and continue my normal life here in Nevada. Whenever I find it extremely hard to sleep, a few cans of beer would do it. I don’t drink to the point where I get drunk, and absolutely wasted, but enough to get me a little tipsy, so I can sleep. So I downed several cans of beer before I felt fuzzy and collapsed on my bed.
The next day, I opened the upstairs bathroom window a little, and immediately, a disgusting and putrefying smell came through the window. I had no idea what it was, but it was so bad to the point where I had to spray air refreshener everywhere and close the window. The entire outside of the house smelled like rotting meat, and I almost puked. I have no idea what’s out that window.
So, I decided to check out the situation for myself with my phone which connected to the camera.
I opened the camera, and saw nothing in the front of the house. However, I noticed that there was something that was just hanging off of the tall wooden gate that blocked off the backyard.
I zoomed in onto the wooden gate.
It was a human hand.
I frantically opened the next camera, and I screamed.
There were at least 30 people hiding at the side of the house, and the only reason I never saw them before was probably because the wooden gate was tall and blocked the view. Some were standing, and others were laying down. I didn’t recognize any of them.
However, when I zoomed in to get a better look, I finally understood why that part of the house smelled so bad, and I nearly fainted once again.
The ones laying down were rotting, stinking corpses. There were probably about 10 decomposing bodies lying on the floor, and what is even worse is that they seem to have been eaten in certain places. However, I did see that 5 other people who were lying down and were still alive, but injured in the leg. That part of the yard was trashed with chip bags, cans, and food remains.
There were huge chunks of flesh and meat missing from their abdomen and necks. There were also some decapitated with their heads half-eaten, and the inner parts of their brain and face are completely exposed. Most of these bodies have been mangled beyond human form.
There were 2 bodies that have nearly been reduced to bone. I also saw there were 2 pistols that were on the floor next to the bodies. These must have been the weapons used to kill 10 of the 30.
The most horrifying thing was discovered when I rewound the camera footage from last week to today.
The footage showed 30 people all standing at the side of the house, and they were all smiling, and waving at the camera which was on. They were wearing normal street clothes like t-shirts, jackets, and shorts or pants with my name painted on all of their clothing. Their expression remained unwavering. They just kept standing there, smiling with huge, wide grins, and staring at the camera.
This continued for even more time, and I think that these people were even there for longer than a week. No one noticed them as I never looked down there, and no one else can see that part of the property. I watched the footage as they continued to stand there for hours, which turned into days. Day after day, for a week, they were progressively looking more impatient, and they haven’t eaten anything ever since the beginning of the footage.
However, things began to change last night. I saw that after all the waiting, a man at the front looked at the rest of the 29, and told them that he needed to get something from his place.
He returned half an hour with 2 silencer pistols, and a knife. He pointed the gun at random people, and shot 15 of them in the legs with the pistols. He then walked over to the ones he shot, and shot 10 of them once again in the head, execution style.
The man then got the knife, and cut into the dead bodies, and began to eat. He chopped off the intestines, and stomach of a woman, and signaled the others to feast upon their fellow fan club members. This went on for hours, and they continued to eat the corpses.
The footage ended after I sped it up to the present. The 5 people alive were probably spared because the other members were full.
I guess the members remaining found out that I saw them, and they grinned at the camera.
Then, the man that killed the 10 last night walked up to the house wall and looked up at the camera. He grinned a huge grin, and I can see the dried blood on his face and clothes from last night.
“Hello there, Mr. J,” he said.
I just stood there, paralyzed with fear. I couldn’t move, but I can only look through the screen of my phone, and listen to him.
“I’m so sorry about all of this.” His voice was guttural, raspy, and it gave me chills every time he spoke. He was speaking very slowly, and he just continued to look into the camera, and talk.
“We came such a long distance just to find you,” he said. “We also have been standing here for so many days. Ever since you installed that camera, and almost never left the house, we had no choice but to stand here, and wait for your response. However, now that you have seen us, we are overjoyed.”
Some of the fan club members chuckled a little, and widened their grins.
“Please don’t run from us. We are, and always will be your number 1 fans. Aren’t you going to come out to meet us?” Hell no, I am not going to meet them, especially after the Florida incident.
“It’s such a shame that we had to do all of that just to get a few photos of you last time,” he said.
“We love you so much you know. We love you more than your parents have sometimes. You were so adorable as a baby and kid. Our fan club simply wanted to document that, and of course, we have always watched you since birth,” the man continued. “Now that we have found you, we just want to have some….fun with you.”
What happened next is something that I do not wish any other human being to see. I would not wish this sight on my worst enemies. Not even with months of therapy, can I get rid of the sight. It’s even hard for me to describe through words.
The man then grinned so widely that the sides of his lips nearly touched the sides of his eyes. He opened his mouth so wide that I thought that the top part of his face would fall off as it was probably hanging by the little skin he had between his ear and his neck.
I saw rows or sharp teeth, and blood still on his tongue, and all over his teeth. He then laughed the most demonic laugh that I have ever heard. It sounded as if Satan himself was laughing. Afterwards, he closed his mouth, and his grin faded away, and his mouth began to drip with blood. He cocked his head to the side, and walked closer to the camera. The members behind him advanced, and widened their mouths as well, showing their horrific features to me.
That’s when I knew that these things weren’t humans.
They are monsters that will do anything to get what they want, and they know no limits. They don’t care about who they have to hurt, or kill in order to get it. I grabbed my laptop, my suitcase, my phone, and all the valuables I had. I put it all in a bigger suitcase, and booked it to my car.
I heard footsteps getting closer as I jammed my keys into the car door, and locked all the doors as I got into the car. I tried getting the key into the ignition, but I kept missing. I muttered curses under my breath until I finally succeeded in getting the key into the ignition.
However, that’s when I realized that I was surrounded.
All 15 fan club members remaining were there at my car, and rocking it back and forth. I put my car into reverse, and ran over 3 of the members in the back. I switched the gear into drive, and I rode out of there with the 12 other members still chasing me.
I called the police over the phone to simply let them know about what happened. Apparently, the Carson City police already knew what had happened to me when I pulled into the station because I told the police in Florida about my dad’s property and I guess they decided to inform the departments in Nevada.
Now, all 3 places that I was able to escape to were found, and the police have been notified of all 3 incidents. I can’t go into New York, Massachusetts, Florida, Texas, nor can I stay here in Nevada.
I had one choice left, and that was to hop hotels or rent until my mom’s place was fixed up, my dad’s place cleaned up. I also needed my street in Boston to be watched most of the time by the police.
I chose to rent a place somewhere in the big cities of California. If I rent, I wouldn’t be the only person that those things have to deal with since the landlords will definitely be around, or at least watching over the house in some way or form.
I don’t know what’s going to happen this time. I feel bad if they actually show up and my landlord would have to deal with it.
However, I guess that renting is the safest way.
This time, I didn’t take a plane. I drove all the way to the Golden State in my Lexus, and I took all my belongings.
I don’t know how many of those creatures are going to be where I was staying, but if there is one thing that I know about them, it’s the fact that they probably will find me. I might have to run away again to an even bigger city. I can only rely on California and it’s cities to keep me hidden.
I’ve been getting quivers all over my body, and I’ve had to go to the bathroom more often those days. The worst thing was probably when I developed insomnia because I was so paranoid.
I went to the doctors to check me out, and they recommended me to a psychologist. I was diagnosed with clinical anxiety, and I had to be put on meds for my insomnia and the constant bathroom breaks.
Those creatures caused me so many problems that I now have these health problems that can only be cured via therapy.
This time, I can only hope that they don’t find me, and pray to god for my safety which I know is never guaranteed. Especially when I have grinning demons who would do anything, just to stalk me, and satisfy their desires.
California
Now, when I got to California, I rented a highly surveilled 2 story residence that was owned by a very nice couple.
This time, I decided to unpack everything, and apply for a law firm. I trusted this place, and I to my surprise, things were actually fine. I got accepted for a job which meant that I was working once again. I went to therapy on the weekends, and I was thinking that I was finally going to have a normal life once again.
Well, even if I were to lead a normal life, I will never be able to forget what happened to me. Nor will I ever forgive the creatures who have caused me so much pain and distress.
A few weeks went by, and nothing happened. Around this time, I probably would have already been found. I checked my laptop, I saw that the website was long gone, and the stalkings seemed to have stopped.
After a couple months, I was living normally. My insomnia has faded away, and my law firm here actually paid me better than the one in Florida and Massachusetts.
I guess that all good things must come to an end one day. Why do I say this?
That would be because, one day, I was getting in my car when I noticed that there was something in the cup holders at the bottom of the interior car door.
I picked it up, and it was the back of a photo with some coffee stains on it.
Well, when I turned the photo over to see what it was, I could feel my stomach turn. I could feel my breakfast coming right back up my stomach and my esophagus.
The picture was of me in the living room with a cup of coffee. This picture was probably taken last week, and I have no idea how it ended up in my car’s cup holder.
The point is, they have already found me.
Just as I thought I could live normally, those motherfuckers had to come in and ruin it. IT hasn’t even been a year, and a few months is probably the longest I’ve gone this year without these creatures finding me.
I reported this to my landlords who contacted the police, but they hung up the phone and told me that the police said that a simple photograph wasn’t enough which I guess made sense to me. I kind of expected this because I never told the police in Nevada where I was going next, and it was definitely not within their boundaries to watch over me only when they have an entire city to watch. Maybe I’m depending a little too much on the police because some things are beyond their power to do.
So, I decided to buy a handgun. In California, they would have to make sure that guns don’t fall into the wrong hands, but I had no criminal record, and it didn’t worry me. The gun itself cost a few hundred dollars which I can afford now that I’m working again.
Now I felt a bit safer knowing that I had a weapon at my disposal. I made sure to check in with my landlords, who agreed to let me keep it in the house.
Weeks went by without incident, until I got another letter in the mail. There was a piece of paper that was a missing persons flier which showed a missing man and woman. I put that on my bed, and put it in a box for scratch paper.
However, something else fell out. It was another damn letter, and it was with that same return address in rural Texas. I snubbed my nose, and read the letter.
The letter was literally only one sentence that said, “Don’t forget about us.”
Shit, I wish I could forget about them, but they just had to come back. They just absolutely needed my damn autograph and a fan meet & greet which I was absolutely not going to let happen after all they did to me.
As I was about to throw the envelope away, I realized that there was something else in the envelope.
It was a USB and there were the words “we love you,” written on the side. I took the USB, and plugged it into my laptop, and there was a video. It was kind of grainy, and the quality in general wasn’t very good either.
The video showed the person holding the camera running on the sidewalk, and taking all these turns through a neighborhood. The street signs didn’t show because it was nighttime when this happened, and I had no idea where they were.
The film then glitched, and showed the person jogging through a park. Another glitch later, they were back on the streets. After a fourth glitch, the screen went dark, and the video showed a tree in a front yard.
Then, the camera tilted up slowly.
When the video cleared up a little, I realized in horror that the filmer was filming me.
They were filming me behind the tree in the front yard, and I was sleeping.
The camera turned around 180 degrees, until I saw who was filming.
It was that thing from Nevada, and he looked directly into the camera lenses, waved goodbye, and the video ended there.
I don’t want to have to relive this shit for the 4th time, but these psychos are everywhere. I took this down to the police station, and that was enough for them to watch the neighborhood more closely. I know that I shouldn’t depend too much on the police for this, but it's’ the only thing that I can do. I also kept my gun closer to me as I know what to do if situations get dire.
It just keeps coming back, time after time.
Now, today was particularly windy here, and there were a bunch of leaves blowing against the backyard window. However, I noticed that there were no leaves being blown into the backyard. It was paper fluttering in the wind. There were a lot of them too, and I decided to clean it up.
All of these papers had the words “we miss you” written in red ink. This can’t be coincidence, can it? Right after I watched that video, this happened. Now, my paranoia is back, and this time, I don’t think any amount of sleep pills will help.
So, the only rational thing for me to do, was to get some more beer, and liquor. I came back home with some cans of Heineken, and some Tequila.
I took the shot glass, and tried to drink myself to sleep. I drank shot after shot until I felt that fuzzy feeling that allows me to sleep.
However, I kept going until I was 10 shots in. I ended my night like that, completely and utterly wasted. It’s been a long time since I’ve done this.
The next morning, I woke up, and thank god that I did this on a Friday as I would have been totally written up for being late. I woke up around lunchtime that day, but I do not regret drinking myself to sleep, because sometimes I do need to do it if I want to forget about those creatures.
I figured that I should also get coconut water for my hangover.
I got into my car once again, and this time, there was nothing out of the ordinary. Upon arriving home, I noticed that there was more mail. This time, there was a small box, and inside the small box were 20 USBs. Every one of them were videos of me drinking just last night. However, all of these people who recorded never showed their faces on film.
This time, I decided that I would confront them because they seem to be coming in smaller numbers than last time, and this time, I have a weapon. I fixed a new sleep schedule which allowed me to stay up later.
I carried my pistol with me, and loaded it. I waited for all the people to arrive. However, instead, I saw the landlords arrive home, and walk through the door.
They didn’t say anything to me and got upstairs.
I finally saw them, a group of 5 people came by, and stood behind the tree. After they knew that I had seen them, they stepped out of the shadows, and grinned at me. I pulled my gun out, and pointed it at them with shaky hands.
“Are you going to shoot us?” one of them said. “We’re your biggest fans.”
“If you step foot in this house, I will pull the trigger.” I threatened them.
“Do we really have to step foot in that house to get a closer look at you?” That same member replied. “Look behind you.”
I turned around and saw absolutely nothing behind me. However, when I looked up, I saw the landlords staring down at me, then giving that same wide grin that the other members were giving me.
I realized then, that I have been duped all this time.
The landlords were members, how could I have not seen that? The pictures of me in the living room, and the fact that they are never home when I am.
“We finally found you after all this time. Who knew that you would pick our house?” the woman said. That’s when I remembered the missing persons flier that showed that man and woman that I got when I received the letter.
I dug through all my scratch paper, and I was horrified to see that the date they went missing was 2 days before I moved in. Their residence was this exact house that I have been living in for 3 months. This missing man and woman were the real landlords.
The couple that were staring and grinning at me from the 2nd floor are fakes.
“What did you do to these people?!” I yelled at the couple.
“You know Mr. J, we have admired you for a long time, and we came from Texas after we heard that you were going to rent this place. About that other couple, we had to….get rid of them before your arrival, because how else are we going to meet you when they’re in the way?” The woman crooned with a smile, and the man just stood there grinning at me. “When you got here, I found it hard to hold back my excitement and I had to try so hard to keep my composure. We had to wait until the others got here. Now that all of us are here, can we get your autograph?”
“No, please, go away! Stay back! You’re all psychos!” I grabbed my gun and pointed it at all of them. I backed into my room, and locked the door. I began to unpack, and by the time I shoved everything that I had into a suitcase, I looked under the crack of the door.
They were all there.
There were so many of them that I hid in the closet that had 2 sliding doors, and planned to make a run for it. I heard them slowly break down the door into the room, and they scattered all over the room. I watched through a crack in the closet door, and I saw that they were all looking at the closet. They all advanced towards me, and once they opened the closet door.
That’s when I did it. I sprinted through the entrance without looking back and I got my keys, and got into my car in record time. However, the members were fast, and one of them got on top of my car, and started pounding the roof. I hit the gas, and put the car on reverse, then switched it to drive very quickly so that the creature would fall off.
I decided to then grab the gun, open the window, and try to shoot off the creature. I missed all my shots, but they must have scared it enough for it to get off. I got the hell out of there.
I was so mad, and frustrated that I can never breathe without these things watching me. I drove to a faraway hotel, and booked a room for a week. That’s where I am now. It’s been 3 days since this happened, and it’s not stopping.
These creatures aren’t stopping, and they will sacrifice their own just to get what they want and satisfy their twisted goals. They are monsters, and they are not of this earth.
However, even though I am in hiding, and scared for my life, there is one thing that I have kept in my mind that keeps me going and running.
They can find me, but they can never have me in their grasp, because I can run, I can hide, and do whatever it takes because I don’t quit or stop.
I’m a survivor.

2020.07.21 15:14 whynotwhyyesss Perspective on a move

Hello!
I need some perspective around moving to Bakersfield. I’m considering to relocate due a good job opportunity (job itself and cost of living are “pros”) from the Bay Area (but I’m not from the Bay and have lived in TX in a big metro area before).
I’m a woman in my 30s, professional, single, no kids, non-religious. Pretty liberal but get along with most people as long as they’re not overtly racist or stupid.
My concerns are these: making friends, building a network, dating, not fitting in in a majorly conservative/Christian community, air quality, etc.
People tell me BK is relatively close to LA, the beaches, Las Vegas, Sequoias, and while is true I also think that is unlikely I’ll be driving every weekend to somewhere “fun”. What matters the most is the daily routine imho.
Anyone in a similar situation currently or in the past? Thoughts? Thanks!

2020.07.14 22:12 Needsomehelp20201 Elderly disabled mother-in-law about to be evicted

My mother-in-law is elderly, disabled, and has chronic health conditions that make her extremely vulnerable to COVID-19. She moved in with her mother to help care for her in 2013 and she’s been living there ever since. Her mother died last year and the family agreed that they wanted to sell that house and that my mother-in-law would have to find a new place to live, but that they would help her find a suitable place and she could stay there until she moved. A vague date of December or January was talked about.
The family did nothing to help her find a new place and has not held up their end of the agreement. They are now accusing her of squatting and attempting to forcibly evict her, showing up multiple times to haul her possessions away. This is putting her health and life in serious jeopardy. She has nowhere to go - she would be made homeless and has very little income.
My questions: is she legally considered a squatter? She pays the utilities and some upkeep on the property, receives mail at the address, and has lived there for 7 years. A verbal agreement was made allowing her to stay in the home until she found a new place.
My partner is part of the trust formed to deal with the estate, including the home. He has been excluded from all communications for the past several weeks and was not notified that the executor was attempting to forcibly evict his mother. All verbal agreements made by the executor and members of trust have been broken.
I’m hoping to fight this by showing that she has a right to remain there until she can safely find a new home and that the family’s actions are illegal, but it hinges on whether she can be considered a squatter, whether the verbal agreements are considered valid, and whether the executor’s actions are illegal.
EDIT: This is in Bakersfield, CA

2020.07.10 14:43 dailystockalert $XFLS is pleased to report it has entered into a purchase agreement to purchase 60% working interest in Lost Hills Oil Field in Kern county California.

Cycle Energy Industries Signs Purchase Agreement for California Oil Asset

CALGARY, Canada, June 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Cycle Energy Industries Inc. (OTC: XFLS) is pleased to report it has entered into a purchase agreement to purchase 60% working interest in Lost Hills Oil Field in Kern county California.
The purchase agreement states Cycle will purchase sixty percent (60%) right and interest in and to the Harvest Petroleum Asset North West Lost Hills Lease and Lerdo Lease in California and all material, Surface, Mineral Rights, Wells, Equipment, Facilities and infrastructure..
The purchase is the first phase of Cycle's expansion plan to acquire assets in the United States. The purchase of the leases includes currently producing cash flowing wells and Cycle Energy Services will implement its production enhancement services and technologies which result in approximately 150-200 BOD (Barrels of oil per day). Another 10-12 PUD's (Proven Undeveloped) drilling locations have been identified and would result in an additional 250 BOD. Harvest Petroleum Inc. is the operator of the field and the remaining 40% partner.
The Lost Hills Field is a mega-oilfield in California, northwest of Bakersfield with thousands of producing oil & gas wells from numerous intervals. Cycle purchased 60% of the field called "Northwest Lost Hills" ("NWLH"). NWLH was discovered in 1983 and is located in Sections 12 & 13, T25S, R19E, and Sections 7 & 18, T25S, R 20E, in Kern County, CA.
The wells in NWLH produce from two formations: The Etchgoin Sand and the Monterey Shale ("Antelope" interval). Pay thickness averages about 35 feet in the Etchgoin, and +500 feet in the Monterey. Oil gravity averages +29-30° API. The field is a SE plunging anticline bounded and trapped by cross faults. The NWLH portion is a Horst Fault block. All Antelope wells are naturally over-pressured and flow naturally upon completion and during production, although many are "assisted" with pumping units that were installed.
The field is fairly well-defined by drilling and 3D seismic, and only about half of the productive area has been drilled to date. A total of 25 additional infill Antelope drilling locations have been identified that are estimated to recover ~755,000 B and +2.3 BCFMr. Michael McLaren CEO states "The purchase of asset is the first step in Cycle Energy Industries acquisition plan into the US oil and gas market." Mr. McLaren further stated, " We see this asset as a great addition to our expanding US portfolio."

2020.07.01 19:50 Inkblot9 Complete list of NCAA and NAIA conference changes for 2020–21

This is an abridged version of the list I posted on /CFB, with football-specific changes removed.

Division I

Seven schools are in the process of reclassifying to Division I. Their projected completion dates (after which they become eligible for the postseason) are as follows:
Future changes: Bethune–Cookman and Florida A&M from MEAC to SWAC; North Carolina A&T from MEAC to Big South. St. Thomas (MN) is applying for a waiver to reclassify from Division III to Division I beginning in 2021; if this is accepted, UST will join the Summit League.

Division II

Six schools are in the process of joining Division II. Their projected completion dates (after which they become eligible for the postseason) are as follows:
Future changes: Ashland from GLIAC to GMAC (2021); Converse adding men’s sports (2021; Conference Carolinas); Francis Marion and UNC Pembroke from Peach Belt to Conference Carolinas (2021).

Division III

Several schools are in the process of joining Division III. Beginning with this year's entrants, the provisional membership process lasts only three years instead of four. However, under the old system it has been common for schools to obtain a waiver to skip a year (usually the third year). Because of that, these projected completion dates are tentative:
Manor is beginning an exploratory year and likely to enter provisional membership next year.
Future changes: Iowa Wesleyan from SLIAC to NAIA (2021); Mary Baldwin adding men’s sports (2021; USA South); Pine Manor is absorbed by Boston College and drops sports (2021); St. Mary's (MD) from CAC to NEAC (2021); St. Norbert from MWC to NACC (2021); St. Scholastica from UMAC to MIAC (2021); St. Thomas (MN) from MIAC to likely Division I (2021); Southern Virginia from CAC to USA South (2021).

NAIA

Future changes: Columbia (SC) adds men’s sports (2021); Johnson & Wales (FL) closes (2021; currently in Sun Conference).

2020.07.01 17:00 Inkblot9 Conference changes for 2020–21

It's July 1st, and you know what that means: time for the annual conference changes list! Thanks to Sir_Superman for letting me take over this year, and for helping fill in some things I missed.
Schools with football (including those adding or dropping it) are in bold. Note that I'm not including schools that have canceled football or other fall sports for 2020, since those presumably are temporary changes.

Division I

Seven schools are in the process of reclassifying to Division I. Their projected completion dates (after which they become eligible for the postseason) are as follows:
Future changes: Bethune–Cookman and Florida A&M from MEAC to SWAC; North Carolina A&T from MEAC to Big South. St. Thomas (MN) is applying for a waiver to reclassify from Division III to Division I beginning in 2021; if this is accepted, UST will join the Summit League, but no football destination has been announced.

Division II

Six schools are in the process of joining Division II. Their projected completion dates (after which they become eligible for the postseason) are as follows:
Future changes: Anderson (SC) adding football (2024; South Atlantic); Ashland from GLIAC to GMAC (2021); Converse adding men’s sports (2021; Conference Carolinas); Francis Marion and UNC Pembroke from Peach Belt to Conference Carolinas (2021; UNCP football unaffected).

Division III

Several schools are in the process of joining Division III. Beginning with this year's entrants, the provisional membership process lasts only three years instead of four. However, under the old system it has been common for schools to obtain a waiver to skip a year (usually the third year). Because of that, these projected completion dates are tentative:
Manor is beginning an exploratory year and likely to enter provisional membership next year.
Future changes: Iowa Wesleyan from SLIAC (UMAC football) to NAIA (2021); Louisiana College from ASC to NAIA (2021); Macalester football from MWC to MIAC (2021); Mary Baldwin adding men’s sports (2021; USA South); Pine Manor is absorbed Boston College and drops sports (2021); St. Mary's (MD) from CAC to NEAC (2021); St. Norbert from MWC to NACC (2021); St. Scholastica from UMAC to MIAC (2021); St. Thomas (MN)from MIAC to likely Division I (2021); Southern Virginia from CAC (ODAC football) to USA South (2021).

NAIA

Future changes: Columbia (SC) adds men’s sports (2021); Iowa Wesleyan joins from D3 (no conference affiliation announced); Johnson & Wales (FL) closes (2021; currently in Sun Conference); Louisiana College joins from D3 (will likely join SSAC with football in the Sooner); Mount Marty adds football (2022; GPAC).

2020.05.21 22:19 stuuked Some Mind Boggling Stats Regarding the Coronavirus in Pa.

So here in Pennsylvania we have:
More CV deaths over age 100 than all under age 45.
More CV deaths over age 95 than all under age 60.
More CV deaths over 85 than all under 80.
71% of all CV deaths happened inside nursing homes, that number has been trending up from 68% the previous week. (See note at bottom***)
Avg age of CV deaths is 79
Avg age of all deaths before CV is 78.5
Over 84% that passed had 1 to 4 comorbidities but 38% of death records did not include this data
Dementia is the 2nd leading comorbidity in Pa with 965??? (Obviously because of nursing homes)
Number of deaths outside of nursing homes is around 1200 in a state with 12.8 MILLION people, in other words 0.009375%.
State report does not list anyone under 30 who died from CV (Update: Footnote claims *Counts less than 5 are suppressed, I don't understand why that would be suppressed)

These numbers are from the weekly report dated the 17th and KFF linked below
Links below.
https://www.health.pa.gov/topics/Documents/Diseases%20and%20Conditions/COVID-19%20Death%20Reports/Weekly%20Report%20of%20Deaths%20Attributed%20to%20COVID-19%20--%202020-05-17.pdf
https://www.kff.org/health-costs/issue-brief/state-data-and-policy-actions-to-address-coronavirus/

***Something to note: I just double checked some numbers before posting and that number has shrank down to 61% since this morning when i started typing this, I don't know how that number shrinks 10% in 1 day??? I posed the last archived link below that was captured on the 19th that shows it 71% (they removed around 100 deaths from nursing homes since this morning, not sure how that happens) My guess is they are trying hard to dilute that number by switching deaths from nursing homes to hospitals, we will see next week when the data comes out.
https://web.archive.org/web/20200519135244/https://www.kff.org/health-costs/issue-brief/state-data-and-policy-actions-to-address-coronavirus/

Update: I did a little digging about the nursing home numbers and it looks like those numbers are severely under counted and the state is blaming the nursing homes. KFF has the deaths lower than this morning but I would expect those number to sharply increase by the next report. Here is an article from the inquirer today.

2020.05.16 23:13 Yotsubato Ever since half the Prometric appts. got cancelled, for those who booked new dates have your dates been honored?

In April I was looking for a June spot in So-Cal and couldnt find anything earlier than July (in bakersfield too....). Now I just opened it up and saw that June and July are empty and easy to grab.
I have a date in July, I would like to take the test in June.
Has anyone booked a date after May 1st and successfully taken the test without getting it cancelled. Or are these Thanos'd empty spots that just auto kick you.
Because I dont want to lose my July date if they are.
Update: Prometric doesnt have the availability it used to 4 days ago! (may 20)

2020.05.01 17:23 decentMexicanFood Prometric Testing Center in Westchester Corp Plaza

I'm taking my medical licensing exam in Bakersfield at the Prometric Testing Center in the Westchester Corp Plaza near the DMV. I'm wondering if anyone knows anything about this place and if it might be open by May 22nd (my test date). Prometric is kind of stonewalling us on information, and I am starting to think that this place doesn't even exist. I would go there myself to check it out, but I live in the Bay Area, and so its a bit of a drive.

2020.04.08 08:52 Nicky_XX Why she's not a cat person anymore

Why I'm not a dog person anymore
*****
Guess what?
I found Madison. Or, actually, she found me.
Madison isn’t her real name. I don’t intend to give that out. I will tell you she’s a veterinarian, and that I researched her thoroughly. She’s legit.
Apparently she found this Reddit post, because she e-mailed me last week. It was a short e-mail, and she was cagey – basically, she asked me if I was actually relating my personal experience, or if this was something I’d read online or heard from someone, then used to fabricate my own narrative. When I assured her I hadn’t, she asked if I’d ever gone back to the neighborhood where I’d lived with Puff, if I’d heard of any other weird happenings there, and if I knew whether or not Mr. Ferguson’s pond had been drained. I responded no, no, and not sure.
She didn’t ask me whether or not I’d ever found Puff.
I suggested we meet in person, and we decided on her office. I drove a significant distance in order to get there last weekend. (I know, I know, we kept our gathering to two people and washed our hands.) Madison is an attractive, obviously intelligent woman, maybe 40 years old. Her life’s pretty normal: she’s divorced, has two kids in elementary school, deals mostly with small animals but sometimes works with horses. Her practice is successful; she’s respected amongst her peers and has been published in several trade magazines. She has an active social life and occasionally dates. She’s in the PTA.
She greeted me cordially, nothing but smiles and professional sweetness, but it soon became clear that my presence had a singular effect on her. At first, I thought I made her nervous. Then, as we progressed from pleasantries to the topic that was the reason for my trek, I realized the devolution of her demeanor from congenial soccer mom to wild-eyed, raspy-voiced trench warrior wasn’t due to fear. I was a piece – possibly not even a large one – of Madison’s clandestine second life, a life she hid from her peers and her family, and a life that deviated so greatly from the realm of normal human experience I’m still not sure I want to believe her.
We spoke for two hours, after which I drove home in a daze, sat in the living room of my Culver City apartment with my laptop in front of me, and stared at the wall until the comforting, commonplace sounds of my roommate emerging from her bedroom and making dinner drew me out of my trance.
*****
Growing up, Madison spent the school year with her mother in Los Angeles, and summers with her father and stepmother in a small town called Juniper Valley. I found the place on Google Maps, and I’d hesitate to even call it a “town.” It’s an unincorporated cluster of ranch-style homes planted like a pimple amongst the Sierra Pelona mountains.
In the 90’s, the population of Juniper Valley and the surrounding hills was eight hundred and change. There was one general store in town, one gas station, one church, and one dirty little inn with a barestaurant. Anything else one might need could be found in Palmdale, a 45-minute drive east, through miles of gridded power lines and golden flatland, dotted with silos and scrap metal.
The town resembles a bowl, with Lake Collette at the basin, and streets and houses arranged around the edges, along the slopes of the surrounding hills. Calling Lake Collette a “lake” is also stretching things a bit. Its a sag pond, right on the San Andreas Fault, which cuts straight through Juniper Valley. During droughts Lake Collette would shrink to a glorified puddle, a mossy marsh of waist-high weeds.
There were quite a few rainy years during Madison’s childhood. Lake Collette would remain a proper body of water then, even in the midst of the hot, dry summer. She could peer out her bedroom window and watch the lake, below the dim circles of light cast by the only two street lamps on Skylark Road, pitch-black like a tar pit. On moonless nights the lake seemed depthless. A black hole. Madison had nightmares, she told me, of being sucked out her window, dragged across the filthy shore of Lake Collette and into the dark water, then down, down, endlessly down as though into the belly of a colossal beast.
As Madison entered her teens, her months in Lake Collette became mind-numbingly boring. Her father and stepmother worked, her siblings attended summer school, and her friends were seventy miles away. The nearest library was nearly as far, and the rabbit-eared TV picked up three channels: local access from Palmdale, the Bible channel, and assorted infomercials.
It was her step-grandmother who told Madison about the Willfell Animal Sanctuary. She went to church with the lady who ran the place, a retired park ranger named Kathy. The shelter was a non-profit funded solely by donations and investment income from a small trust fund. Kathy owned an acre of hillside land off Skylark Road, just west of town, a fifteen-minute walk from Madison’s house. Since money was tight, Kathy often relied on labor from local teen-aged volunteers.
It turned out that ‘teen-aged volunteers’ was a bit of an exaggeration – no teen-ager, except Madison, ever stayed to volunteer for more than a few days, mostly due to the dirtiness of the facility and the general disorganization. In fact, Madison was one of only three ‘employees’ – the other two being Jacques, a 27-year-old man with autism who cleaned cages and walked dogs as part of a government-subsidized program; and Kathy, an earthy woman in her sixties who functioned as the facility manager, administrator, accountant, and primary caretaker of the animals.
There were two huge kennels in Kathy’s large backyard, built by her sons: one for dogs, one for cats. Further back, rabbit hutches. And at the far end, against the sturdy fence, a tiny stable that housed an elderly racehorse and a fat little donkey.
When pounds in Palmdale and Lancaster received animals they had no room for, they’d give them to Kathy. She’d drive her rickety, old, windowless van east to the highway, then return hours later with new furry charges. Sometimes, she’d function as a poor man’s dog catcher - agencies would direct her towards residences from Juniper Valley to Acton, asking her to remove starving, nearly hairless dogs from gardens and pull emaciated cats out from under cars. These were the highway strays, abandoned on the 14 by individuals who no longer wished to be pet owner
Most of these orphaned animals were hit by cars, attacked by snakes or hawks or mountain lions, or died of thirst. The dogs that survived formed packs, spawned young, and lived out feral, usually short, existences in the dry, tenantless wasteland that surrounded the Antelope Valley. The cats fared, possibly, even worse – often becoming prey for the roving canine hordes. Only precious few found their way to Willfell. And of those, few survived longer than a few days.
But, despite all of this, Madison loved her job. She told me her experiences there inspired her to be a veterinarian. And the best of those experiences involved a woman named Jane Kitornes, a former Navy nurse who worked as an at-home caregiver and took in homeless cats.
Jane was a friend of Kathy’s. She visited Willfell at least once a week, often bearing large bags of cat food. Jane was a rough lady: tanned, sinewy, wrinkled beyond her years; only ever seen wearing stained wife-beaters and baggy fatigues. She’d never married, had no family Madison knew of, and seemed to prefer the company of cats to humans. Kathy considered her a godsend - she’d take in twenty cats at a time, accepting responsibility when Willfell had no more room.
Jane owned a half-acre a few miles southwest of town, off a shabby two-lane road called Oak Tree Lane. Oak Tree Lane snaked between grey-green hills before dead-ending deep in the Angeles National Forest; rusting mailboxes stuck out of the ground like flags at the head of dirt roads, leading to remote ranches and groves and campgrounds. Jane’s cottage was at the end of one of these dirt roads, in a little clearing carpeted with knee-high weeds and prickly shrubs, surrounded on three sides by gently-sloping hills. It was distinguishable from the street by a huge oak tree in the front yard, with thick branches that shed brown acorns and crunchy piles of concave, sharp-edged leaves.
She’d take Madison to her house, sometimes. There were cats everywhere.
Cats inside and out. Cats on the sofa, cats sitting atop Jane’s washer, cats sunning themselves, stalking field mice and butterflies, sleeping and fighting and screwing. Cats climbing into the oak tree, sprawling on the branches, batting about acorns. Cats hiding in piles of leaves, exploring the rocky terrain, dragging home vanquished birds and bugs and rodents.
Madison spent hours at Jane’s house with her cats, helping her clean up and clean litter boxes, cuddling kittens from the occasional litter. Jane liked Madison. And since she obviously felt little need for human companionship, Madison took this as the highest of compliments.
*****
The earthquake hit the winter of Madison’s Junior year. In Los Angeles, it was barely noticed. But her father and his family, and Juniper Valley, were more severely affected.
Positioned on the San Andreas Fault and close to the remote epicenter, structural damage in Juniper Valley was rather extensive. Months later, before the necessary repairs could be completed, the area experienced its rainiest winter on record. Rocky mudslides closed roads and isolated remote dwellings. The whole mess was cleaned up by the summer, but upon her return to Juniper Valley, Madison noticed broken sandbags and fresh, violent cracks along Skylark Road.
Lake Collette was more robust than she’d ever seen it, but the sag pond was not open for swimming. It was surrounded by a chain-link fence: as the water had taken on a greenish tinge and hosted islands of thick yellow scum, it was closed to the public.
Madison returned to Kathy and the Willfell Animal Sanctuary - with a driver’s license this time, which secured her a new responsibility. Kathy’s ancient, windowless van still had’t broken down, but she was sick of driving it all over the valley. So she handed her teen-aged assistant the keys. Madison enjoyed it at first: rambling through golden plains until she approached the boxy developments of Palmdale or Lancaster; rescuing filthy, unloved creatures from the clutches of abusive owners or uncaring bureaucracy.
Jane Kitornes had all but disappeared. Her last nursing charge passed away, and she was seldom seen in town - only at the general store, Kathy said, and very rarely. Madison believed only she and Kathy noticed Jane’s absence, or cared. She missed Jane. She missed the way Jane’s face lit up when she saw her, and the warm summer afternoons spent cleaning kennels under Jane’s huge oak tree, never more than a yard away from a soft, cuddly feline. Madison called Jane’s landline once. It had been disconnected.
*****
Soon after her return to Juniper Valley, Madison said, she noticed the cats were different.
Her third day back, Madison received phone call from a talkative old lady in town. There was a cat in her backyard; it had been sitting in the lower branches of a tree in her yard for hours.
“I think it’s someone’s pet,” she said. “It’s too chubby to be a stray.”
This, in and of itself, was not an extraordinary event. Everyone in town knew Kathy ran a shelter, and would infrequently call her in lieu of animal control when an unknown animal became a bother. Sometimes that animal would be a neighbor’s lost pet; other times, a runaway who’d ventured from Palmdale. Kathy always made an effort to find the owner. Rarely, a feral, abandoned highway stray would straggle its way to Juniper Valley. These poor creatures were half-dead things with matted fur and exposed, pustule-dotted skin. They almost always needed to be euthanized. Or died before the local vet got the chance.
At first, Madison assumed the calm, well-groomed, grey-and-white shorthair perched in the old lady’s tree was the former: a townie’s escaped house cat. She tried to coax the thing down with a can of tuna. No dice. It wasn’t remotely interested in the food - it just stared; black, depthless eyes locked on something that wasn’t her. After a few minutes of dangling a tuna can like an idiot, she gave up and went to the van to get a net. When she returned with the net, the cat was gone.
She could swear it had been toying with her.
This incident was repeated again and again over the next month. Always cats. Always different cats – Madison never saw the same one twice. Each time, the homeowner who called Willfell swore he or she had never seen the animal before, and they never had collars. They always appeared well-fed, if not overfed; and their fur, though not show-quality, was thick and healthy. Usually, the complainant noted that the animal “was looking at me funny,” or “just stares;” and often added that the cat had been sitting in the same position for minutes, if not hours.
It became troubling. Juniper Valley had a population of 842; it was located forty-five minutes from the nearest town, and surrounded on three sides by hills and forest. Everyone knew everyone else’s pets, and the sudden appearance of so many unaccounted-for cats was mysterious, to say the least.
And these cats were not like any cats Madison had ever seen.
They liked fresh water. More than once, she’d find a cat nearly fully submerged in a fountain or a dog’s water dish or a kiddie pool. They didn’t seem to like the sun. Most of the calls came in between dusk and 10:00pm, when she clocked out. When she did go out during the day, if not soaking in a body of water, the cat would invariably be found in some shaded, dark, enclosed space. They were silent, never hissing or meowing.
They were really, really good at getting in and out of places. One holed up in an unused chicken coop, seemingly having entered without tunneling under the structure or disturbing the latch. Madison found another curled up in the back of a lady’s car. Though she admitted she had left the car unlocked, the physical act of opening the door should have been impossible for a creature with only paws at its disposal.
They were smart. Supernaturally smart. Madison described several instances where a cat had crouched, calm and cool, watching her intently as she extended a net or set up a trap. Then, as soon as she’d allowed herself some semblance of hope that she’d catch the thing this time, the cat would dart out of her grasp and run away, or else vanish the moment she turned her back. A couple times, she said, she could swear the cat was smiling at her. Laughing.
And they all shared the same icy, emotionless eyes. She told me they looked like the lifeless, staring eyes of the euthanized corpses she saw at Willfell.
Finally, near the end of June, Madison caught one.
She was quite pleased with her cunning. She’d bought a plastic storage container from the general store, filled it with water, set it in the back of the van, then hid in the cab for over an hour until her feline quarry – a large, pug-faced tabby – climbed down from the roof and into the waiting reservoir. She raced to the back, slammed the van doors, donned leather gloves and prepared for a hissing, clawing fight.
But, surprisingly, the cat didn’t struggle at all. It sat fully submerged in the water, curled up on the bottom of the plastic container like a rock. She picked it up shoved it in a carrier, dumped out the water, and drove.
It wasn’t until she was halfway to Willfell that she noticed the smell. Once, she told me, her son dropped a fish stick in the back of her car and forgot about it. A humid summer week later, her car smelled just like the cat had.
At the shelter, the large tabby put up about as much of a fight as it had in the van. Madison said she didn’t hold it for long; years of experience with stray animals had taught her that the less time spent with claws inches from her face, the better. But the short span of time the cat was in her hands was enough to make her seriously uncomfortable. It was heavy, she said. Heavy and somehow doughy; her hands sunk into its flesh like silly putty. And it was cold.
Madison placed the cat in the ‘quarantine’ crate in Kathy’s office. They only used the crate for animals that were obviously ill, which the tabby was not. But there was something… wrong with the creature. As though it shouldn’t be mixed with others of its species. She gave it bowls of kibble and water, then sat down at the desk to fill out a grant application she’d been avoiding. Kathy was gone for the weekend, visiting her sister in Bakersfield. Jacques was out back, cleaning out the pony stall.
She couldn’t concentrate, she said. Not with the cat there.
She found herself looking over her shoulder every few minutes. Each time, she saw the same thing – the tabby cat, sitting in its water bowl, staring at her. It never blinked. It never moved. It didn’t even appear to be breathing. It just stared, its icy, emotionless eyes boring into the back of her neck. The rotting, fishy odor filled the room. Finally, Madison cracked. She double-checked the lock on the cat’s cage, locked the office door, and made herself busy feeding the dogs. She called the vet and asked if he could come by and take a look at the feline, but he wouldn’t be available for another week.
The next morning, she found the office window wide open, the quarantine crate open, and the cat gone.
Madison wasn’t disappointed.

Not long after that, everyone started talking about little Charlie Henderson.
Charlie was 12, and had been skateboarding alone, shortly before midnight, in the parking lot by Lake Collette. The lake was still scum-covered and fenced off, and the occupants of the nearest homes had long since packed it in for the night. The way he told it, Charlie was approached by a cat. It walked right up to him and rubbed affectionately against his legs. He bent over to pet it, and the cat danced away, leading him to a grove of trees behind the lake.
He followed the cat. Then, suddenly, he was attacked by a small army of cats. They jumped from the trees and emerged from the shadows, latching onto his clothing and limbs and dragging him towards a hole in the fence. If a lost car hadn't pulled into the parking lot and turned around, causing the cats to scatter and giving him time to run away… well, who knows what they’d have done with him?
No one believed Charlie, of course. Everyone assumed he’d been attacked by, maybe, one feral cat, and his imagination had taken over. Because cats don’t corner people and jump them – that takes organization and planning, intelligence not possessed by house pets. And his story got weird, too. He claimed one of the cats had stretched itself, like silly putty, and grew a large extra toe on one paw.
Then Jane came back.
It was a cloudy afternoon, and Madison took advantage of the slight cool-down to deep-clean the dog kennel. Kathy was gone again, in Riverside watching her granddaughter play softball. Madison was busy scraping dried dog crap off the concrete when Jacques informed her that she had a visitor. She returned to Kathy’s office to find Jane Kitornes staring at her.
Jane had never been fastidious about her appearance. But, if Madison hadn’t known her, she would have assumed the gaunt, trembling figure in a stained wife-beater was a homeless woman. Her hair was a frizzy, matted mess of grey. She looked unwashed; her arms and chest were striped with lacerations of varying degrees of depth, in various stages of healing. And her eyes, which had once seemed to serve as a window to a rational, calculating mind, now allowed a glimpse into bloodshot insanity.
“Jane!” Madison said. “What… are you okay?”
Jane didn’t flinch. “Do you have any?” she asked matter-of-factly.
Madison was confused. “Any what?”
“Cats, Maddy,” was the curt reply. “It’s the cats. I need the cats. They’ve been wandering.”
Madison responded with a forced smile. “Okay, Jane. I can show you the cats. But Kathy said I’m not allowed to give any away without her approval.”
That was a lie, but she wasn’t about to hand Jane custody of a pet rock, let alone a living, breathing creature. She was obviously not in the physical, emotional, or mental state to care for anything, not even herself. But she dutifully walked Jane out to the cat kennel. As expected, a small herd of dogs ran towards Jane to sniff and beg for attention. Then, about three feet from her, the dogs stopped. They sniffed the air, whined, and loped off in all directions. Not a single one got any nearer.
Jane looked over the Willfell cats seriously, then sighed in disappointment. She shook her head, turned around, and paced back to Kathy’s house.
“You haven’t caught any,” she said.
“What are you talking about?” Madison demanded.
Jane glared at her.
“You know what I mean, Maddy. My cats. Call me if you catch one. There’s so many of them now. And they’re getting bigger.”
With that, she walked out the door. She stopped. She turned around.
“And Maddy? Watch the lake.”
*****
Madison spent the rest of the day in a daze. She had long wondered where the bizarre new crop of cats came from - they didn’t belong to anyone in Juniper Valley, and it was hard to believe that they’d all migrated from Palmdale. Jane took in homeless cats. Maybe they were hers. She couldn’t fathom why they would have left food, water, and shelter to wander for miles along an isolated road and into a neighborhood, but it was at least a possibility.
That night, spurred by a tangled web of teen-aged bravado and the elusive call of the void, Madison borrowed her father’s car and drove to the parking lot by Lake Collette. The same parking lot where Charlie Henderson had been attacked. She pulled right up to the chain-link fence that surrounded the lake, shut off the ignition, and let her eyes adjust to the darkness. She did what Jane told her to do. She watched the lake.
Not ten minutes later, she saw movement. A black shape, creeping out of the shadows and approaching the water’s edge. Then another. Then another, emerging from a clump of trees. Cautiously, quietly, Madison opened the car door and stepped out. She tiptoed towards the chain-link fence.
A large black cat waded in the dirty water. Its paws were inundated. It kept on going.
A subtle creak.
Madison came closer, until she grasped the metal links of the fence and felt it quiver beneath her fingers. She saw them. Two more cats. Huge cats, the biggest she’d ever seen. Cats climbing down the fence like monkeys, head first, completely vertical. One, then the other, leaped gracefully to the ground and stepped into the feeble light bleeding from the two streetlights. One was yellow, the other a tabby.
The black cat was almost completely submerged. With the lightest gurgle, it ducked under the scum-covered waterline. Into the black hole, the toothed tar pit.
The ambient light around Lake Collette wasn’t good at all. Because Madison could swear, for a moment, the second and third cats had… had flattened when they hit the ground, like play-doh thrown at a wall. And there was something eerie about the way they moved. They jiggled. The air smelled rotten and acidic, like old fish or spoiled eggs.
Where was the black cat? It couldn’t still be submerged.
Then, ripples in the lake, small islands of yellow scum shifting in gentle waves. Madison didn't feel a breeze. There was something else in the dark water.
A cadence of nerves was triggered in her brain, forgotten but immediately recognized, like an old favorite song. She was terrified of Lake Collette; forcibly returned to her childhood nightmares, where the black water of the pond transformed into a depthless, carnivorous well. She ran to her car. She slammed the door, did a donut in the parking lot, and sped home.
