The Donkey Lady

Author: Connor Swanson

This story comes from San Antonio, Texas, when I was around the age of 16, I had first gotten my drivers license,and new car, so I wanted to hang out with my friends. And so me and my two friends, Mike and Lois, wanted to go and see a type of haunted area in San Antonio. Since I grew up in San Antonio, I knew most of the areas of where most hauntings took place. So I drove me and my friends to Donkey Lady bridge in the southwestern end of San Antonio. I heard many stories of the spirit, and most of the time they happen around night time, mainly around midnight. When me and my friends arrived at the bridge, it was an hour or two before midnight, so we sat and waited in my car, and so not to waist gas, I turned my car off. Hours went by, and we had not seen or heard anything, we were about to leave as soon as it was midnight, but then my friend Mike told me that we should wait a little longer, so we did. And it was around 12:16 am, and we were about to call it quits, that was when we heard a blood curdling scream. The scream sounded both far and nearby, we started to look around, but we couldn’t see anything. While looking around, we thought we could find someone nearby, that might of been playing a prank on us, but there was no one. But once I had looked into my rear view mirror, I saw what looked to be the silhouette of a person behind us, the person looked to be only twenty feet from my car. I then turned my head to look into the rear window, but when I took a look behind us, there was no one there. I knew that there was no way that someone could have seen me turn my head to the rear, as well I knew that there was no way that anyone could have managed to run out of sight in an open field. I then asked my friends if they had seen the person, but they told me that they saw no one. I then decided to drive away from the area, and upon turning one my lights, we saw what looked to be a person. For this person looked to be dressed in a white nightgown, but as well she looked as though she was drenched, almost as though she been in a rainstorm, but it had not rained that whole week, but the most terrifying thing I witnessed was that the person looked to have long black hair, skin looked darkened as though whoever it was, had been burned. But upon seeing this, the skin looked as though it was just hanging from body, for the skin of the face was just hanging from the skull, and that the hands were gone, looking as though they were hooves, this almost looked as though it took the form of a donkey. As soon as we had see the figure in front of us, the figure made a blood curdling scream. I then drove the car right out of the area, and as soon as we were in a safe distance, we called 911, and told them what we saw. The cops then arrived in five minutes later, since there was a patrol car nearby, the cops overlooked the area but could not find anyone in the area, and not even a sign of anyone leaving the area but us alone. There are many reports of sightings like mine, but I never thought they were true, until now.
