7. Strange life saver

A girl who just got out of her boyfriend’s house late at night realized she needed a fill-up. She headed for the nearest gas station. Right when she stopped and got out for the gas, a man ran to her from nowhere and yelled at her “Get back to your car and go!!!”

Judging by his expression, somehow she knew there was no joke and something bad really was about to occur. She went back to her car and left the place most instantly.

The next day she found out that the gas station was robbed with an attendant badly hurt. She then reported the event to local police but up to now, she still cannot tell if that was her unknown saving grace or that robber who saved her life.

She kept the story to herself for years until one day her son told her the same story when he drove by the same graveyard. She knew for sure what happened that night was not a nightmare.
