Roadside Wraith By Jeff Davis

So it's a year late. I started this last year for the Tell Me Something Spooky theme and never finished it on time.  I wanted to depict the ghost of a story i heard told on the radio one year as I was driving to work. I don't remember the details, but the woman telling the story said that both she and her mother saw a man standing by the side of the road as they were driving in a snowstorm during the day. He was dressed in black with a tall stove pipe hat and was holding a black cat, and that he had a smile and a look that felt evil. She said that he looked directly at her and kept eye contact until she had passed him. He turned to keep the eye contact and then as she continued to look behind, he disappeared into the swirling snow. It was quiet in the car for a minute or so, and then her mother asked her if she had seen the man by the roadside too. This was on I-15 near the South Town mall, before the mall was built and it was mostly fields. The creepy part is that a little while later, the woman was visiting someone in Washington DC and woke up to find the same man standing at the foot of her bed, still holding the cat and smiling his evil smile.
