The Backwards Walking Spirit of Winter

Five friends, Sarah, Mike, Emily, Jake, and Rachel, decided to take a winter vacation to a remote village in the mountains. They rented a cozy cabin and spent their days skiing and snowboarding, and their nights drinking hot cocoa and playing board games.

On their second night, they heard strange noises outside their cabin. At first, they thought it was just the wind, but the noises grew louder and more frequent. They looked out the window and saw a figure walking backwards in the snow.

“What the hell is that?” Jake asked, his voice trembling.

“I don’t know, but it’s creeping me out,” Sarah replied.

They tried to ignore the figure and go back to their game, but the noises continued. They eventually decided to investigate and grabbed their flashlights and winter gear.

The Encounter

As they stepped outside, the cold wind hit them like a ton of bricks. They shivered and huddled together, shining their flashlights in the direction of the noises.

That’s when they saw it. The figure was tall and thin, with long black hair that flowed behind it as it walked backwards. Its eyes were pure white, and it seemed to be staring right at them.

“What do we do?” Emily asked, her voice barely above a whisper.

“We need to get back inside,” Mike said, his voice shaking.

But it was too late. The figure had noticed them and began to approach. They tried to run, but their feet felt heavy, like they were stuck in quicksand.

The figure moved closer and closer, its white eyes never leaving them. They could feel its cold breath on their faces, and they knew they were in grave danger.
The Legend

Just as they thought all hope was lost, a villager appeared out of nowhere and chased the figure away. He introduced himself as Old Man Jenkins and invited them back to his cabin to warm up.

As they sat by the fire, Old Man Jenkins told them the legend of the backwards walking spirit. He explained that every winter, the spirit would haunt the village and prey on anyone who dared to venture outside after dark.

“But why does it walk backwards?” Rachel asked.

“No one knows for sure,” Old Man Jenkins replied. “Some say it’s because the spirit is trapped between worlds and can’t move forward. Others say it’s because it’s trying to lure its victims into a trap.”

The friends listened in horror as Old Man Jenkins told them stories of the spirit’s victims. They knew they had to do something to stop it.

Backwards Walking Spirit: The Confrontation

They spent the rest of the night researching and preparing for their confrontation with the spirit. They gathered salt, iron, and holy water, and made a plan to lure the spirit into a trap.

As night fell, they ventured outside and set up their trap. They waited for hours, their hearts pounding in their chests.

Finally, they heard the sound of footsteps in the snow. They shone their flashlights in the direction of the noise and saw the figure approaching.

They sprang into action, throwing salt and holy water at the spirit and brandishing their iron weapons. The spirit let out an unearthly scream and lunged at them.

They fought with all their might, dodging and weaving to avoid the spirit’s attacks. They could feel its icy grip on their arms and legs, but they refused to give up.

Finally, with one last burst of strength, they managed to trap the spirit in a circle of salt and iron. It let out a final scream and vanished into thin air.

The Aftermath

The friends returned to Old Man Jenkins’ cabin, exhausted but triumphant. They spent the rest of their vacation in peace, knowing that they had rid the village of the backwards walking spirit.

As they packed their bags to leave, Old Man Jenkins approached them with a small box.
“This is for you,” he said, handing the box to Sarah. “A token of my gratitude for what you’ve done.”
