Still, the girls were determined to have a great evening together and settled into the place. They started a fire, heated up some hotdogs until they were lukewarm, and ate in silence.
But, the silence of the secluded cabin was deafening.
“You don’t know how quiet it is until you are in the middle of nowhere. You can hear every rustle of the leaves, the whisper of the wind through the branches. You get so used to white noise living in the city. Here, the closest thing to white noise was the sound of our own breathing,” she said.
So, every cracked branch and wind gust made the girls jump to the edge of their seats– until finally, she could not handle the fright any longer and made an executive decision to crack some wine coolers and set a board game down on the table.
And soon after, the girls had loosened up and began enjoying their evening.
“We were laughing, having the raucous good time we had envisioned. Much more sober than we had thought, but enough that we were able to ignore the rumble of the woods,” she remembered.
Looking back now, she, Violet, and Alex all admitted to hearing unexplainable noises during their hangout– including the snapping of twigs and rumbling of car engines. Still, no one wanted to spoil their peace and fun.
Although that was until one massive scare gained the attention of all three girls– a human hand reached up to the cabin window and slapped it three times.
At that moment, none of the girls could maintain their composure. They began screaming and hollering as Alex immediately dialed 911.
Thankfully, officers did arrive about twenty minutes later– which was a miracle considering the call went out at 1:00 a.m. However, upon combing the mountain with K9s, the officers found absolutely nothing.
And at first, the police tried to suggest that the hand could have been a bear. But, the group could tell from the officers’ faces that they did not believe that lie for a second.
