Something weird and scary happened to us last nihgt. We had a few friends over for the weekend. We love to go hiking and long walks wherever and whenever we can. So as Usual around 11pm we decided to go for a walk in a country park 7 minutes from us (although main gates are closed at 7pm, other open paths are there for access.). As we were nearing one of the accesses, we notice a car passing us slowly,(this is all realization after the incident).We go through and it is a cloudy and windy night so more dark than moonlighted.Most of the area is woods, huge trees, with specific pathways leading you towards the centre of the park and round it.But in the night it looks kinda spooky. Anyways, we are just enjoying our walk,gone past midnight, we hear some rustling every now and again.Thought nothing of it. Kept on for some more and decided to sit somehwere and chill.
We choose a spot which is kinda like a hole underneath the trees and shrubs and bushes as a huge branch had fallen and drying, which made a pefect spot to sit on and chat.(I have been here and done this many times so I knew).
After just 15 minutes or so we heard some whispers and rustling.Suddenly we all went quiet(5 of us,3 females,2 males). It was just odd. Then we saw two largely build,stocky men walkign along (we were well hidden coz of the hole which we did not realize before) as if looking for someon or something. We thought possibly walkers like us but they were acting weirdly. Lokking back and forth as if searchign at the same time watching for god knows what.Suddenly one of my friends says look at their hands.I nearly fainted, they both had some kind of large knife.Immediately we all stopped breathing,like this is life or death,they are looking for us.
We all just lay low and quiet did not move or breath, not knowing what to do. They made atleast three full rounds of the park or semi park looking fo rus . Once when they were passing us one of them said "f### it, missed them,lets go back".
All os us just stayed there for fear till daybreak, freezing cold and tired but dare not move in case they were still around.
Narrow escape, We dont know why they were looking for us but looking at the knife not something nice.
Sworn off parks and woods and hiking I suppose for a long time.Teeth Chattering while writing.
