    I wanted to ask for odd stories that aren't ghost/paranormal stories but are just odd. They don't have to without a doubt be 100% objectively true but they should have at least a likelihood in your perception of being true.

    I have followed a ton of small-time YouTubers in the past. There has been a trend that has happened 2-3 times now. These YouTubers will be gamers and they will stage gaming marathons. These marathons will be around 24 hours typically. So I'm following that and happy for them because they seem so excited. Later on, almost every time, there is a message posted somewhere or a strange video stating that the person had complications such as a blood clot from the long gaming marathon and are in the hospital or worse.

    So it is eery to see a person so excited, then the next thing you know, they are dead or in pain.

    Here is my most recent short story. Its sloppy so I still need to polish it up so you'll have to cut me some slack.

    This story is not paranormal per say I guess though it has a paranormal theme. It's about a dream I had 26 years ago (I was 15). The dream starts out by the duck pond/park here in town. I was there walking around the pond feeding the ducks etc. I hear a a girls voice "Someone please help me!" Her voice echoed like she was in a cave or something. So I begin following the sound of her voice. It lead to an old above ground manhole cover/storm drain.

    I look into the storm drain and I see this girl about my age (15ish). Long platinum blonde hair, very pale, and skinny. She's chained to the wall of the sewer. I try to undo the chains to no avail. She tells me the man that put her here lived nearby and that I could find the key to the locks in his house.

    (Highly irrational I know. But it's a dream though so keep that in mind.)

    So off I go to his house. He is not home. So I break in rummage through his things. I find the typical serial killer stuff. Knives, chains, ropes, "trinkets" from victims, all that stuff. But I finally find the key to release the girl! So back to the storm drain to get her out. I arrive back at the drain, and set her free.

    We become close friends, eventually more. Then we marry, have kids. I kid you not this dream I lived an entire life. It seemed to go on forever. So much so that I vividly remember sitting on the front porch with her at 90+ years old. Holding hands with smiles on our faces as grandkids played in the front yard.

    Just before the dream ended, after what literally felt like a lifetime. Life blurred in reverse, all the way back to the day I freed my beloved from her confines. This time though when I jumped down into the storm drain with the key to rescue her. She was nothing but a skeleton chained to the wall. I screamed enraged, and heartbroken at the same time. What had happened? What is this? So much confusion my head spun round and round.

    Then I woke up. The bed soaked in sweat. Still confused and head spinning I wasn't sure what reality was real anymore. I just lived my entire life! Why am I this person now?!? My heart still burned with intense love for this girl that apparently I have never met. Was she even real?!? Am I real?!? For the next 10 years at least I frantically looked for this girl. I can't tell you how much time I've spent at the duck pond hoping to see her there one day. I've met a few over the years I thought might be her, but no luck. Something deep inside me tells me that whoever this girl is. Had the same or a similar dream, and that we would recognize each other instantly if we ever met.

    But here I am now. 41 years old and I've pretty much given up and just accepted the fact it was all just a dream after all. But I would be a liar if I told you my heart did not still burn for her INTENSELY! Even though I've moved on. I've been engaged twice, and loved them almost as deeply. I still keep her face in the back of my mind. I will never forget it. I did after all spend an entire life with her. Who could forget that?

    The End
