One of the earliest encounters I had with the Rake happened on July 4th some where around the time of 4:32 p.m. if I was to guess. I was just setting off some smoke bombs and testing to see if said smoke was in color. (it wasn't) After setting two smoke bombs off, I saw something that looked like a mangy dog. At first I jokingly thought it was the Rake then brushed it off as nothing. Later that night around 3:00 a.m. or so I started to hear a low gurgling sound. Not like what you'd hear from pipes, but more like an animal or something. The Second and most recent encounter happened yesterday around 2:45 p.m. while I was mowing my families garden. From the corner of my eye I thought I saw something hiding in the wooded area of the field. I turned my head to see what it was. At first I couldn't believe what I saw. It was the Rake It's face, dear lord I finally understand why uncanny valley is scary. The thing that sticks with me the most are those black eyes of his. Needless to say it didn't take long for it to notice I was watching it and it went back into the wooded area to hide. At first I wanted to get the hell out of there until I noticed it was still there watching me.Part of me wanted to run like hell, but I remembered what I learned from that Rake video the Rev made about this thing. So I continued to act like I didn't see anything and continued mowing. Truth be told I've never been more scared in my life. I've said this once before to my good friend Miss Shady and I'll say it again now. I don't plan on antagonizing this creature the way Maduin does to the slender man, but if that thing comes near my property with the intent to harm, I WILL DEFEND MYSELF. For the time being if it comes near my property I'm going to set out some "treats" for it. Until next time people.
