Many people are interested in the paranormal. Over the years society’s view of unexplained events has changed, with scientific thought repeatedly pushing back the edge between what’s known and what simply can’t be possible.
Still, paranormal investigators keep investigating ghost sightings, reports of the dead speaking with the living, frightening creatures glimpsed in the shadows and more strange and unsettling cases.
One paranormal investigator had their belief in the world turned upside-down when they investigated a report of a being known as The Grinning Man.
“For the first four years of my work I found nothing; no evidence of even a single paranormal phenomenon in any of the cases I took,” writes the investigator. “There were hordes of unconfirmable ghost sightings, ‘hauntings’ that were explained away by natural phenomenon, and even the odd prankster or two. I felt like I was floundering. I started to wonder if I had followed a road that led nowhere, my destination nothing but a hazy mirage perpetually on the horizon.”
In this creepypasta story, that paranormal investigator sits down with a woman who claims to have had disturbing encounters with a reptilian-like entity she calls The Grinning Man. While the Man never says anything to the woman, its’ eyes are the most memorable and shaking feature of the being.
