There is this old abandoned power station in my town that’s fenced off. Me and my friends sometimes go exploring at night and take some cool photographs (place is full of graffiti so plenty of urban photography opportunities)
We go there one night, and we’re already on edge because we know the security patrol comes around soon so we only have a limited time to get our photos done.
We’re still climbing through the hole in the fence when we hear the sound of a metal bar smack against something solid and drop to the floor clanging, coming from inside the place. We probably stood on the spot for 5 minutes, scared shitless and trying to look into the blackness of the station. This building is huge with a maze of floors and underground tunnels and the one side is completely open where a window transcended all 4 floors into a huge open area where we felt like someone was staring at us from the third floor inside. (Think of this building as something you might see in Chernobyl)
Against all sense we go in anyway and my friend shines a light to the third floor where a control room overlooks the open area. Through the control room window we saw a dark figure peering out at us, quickly run to the side out of sight.
I’m a grown man and I almost cried. I was thinking slender man, rapist axe murderer or some mutant like out of the Chernobyl movies.
We decided there was more of us than there were of them and we stayed. For the next hour we didn’t see anything, and even went to the control room and found nothing. The only other scare was when security came back and we had to run for it.
It was probably just some homeless bloke, or some other people exploring. Might have even been some other friends playing a prank on us, who ended up meeting us later (although there are many reasons why I think that’s unlikely) but so far as I’m aware, none of my mates knew who/what was up there.
