To start, this story is not as scary at it is funny, but it does creep me out. So My boyfriend, my best friend and I enjoy playing pokemon go.
It's a fun group activity that we can do together to kill time. We live in the suburbs of Chicago so weren't not anywhere rural.
Around us there are a ton of Gym, all of them ruled a group of yellow players.
My best friend and I are blues so we decided one night we should go out and take over some of the gyms.
My boyfriend is a yellow but he doesn't really care if we take down a yellow gym, he just likes to go along for the fun.
For those of you who don't know how Pokemon go works, you there are 3 teams (Red, blue and yellow) and you use the pokemon you have to take over gyms for coins.
We went out at around 11pm, mostly cause no one really comes out that late and we can park the car and take our time.
Now my friend had told me about one of the guys who had been taking over all the gyms.
When she was take one, he showed up behind her and when she drove off he followed her until was far enough away from the gyms.
As creepy as that sounded we still didn't care and went to take back the gyms in the name of Team blue.
We're sitting outside a church. Mind you, this is the middle of December so we didn't get out of my car.
A little background information, I'm not a big guy, 5'9" at best, and my boyfriend is 130 pounds soaking wet.
My best friend is about as lipstick lesbian as you can get and wouldnt be able to fight her way out of paper bag. The three of us are about as vulnerable as you can get.
So as we finish up taking over the gym, all of the sudden a pair of headlights turn on from behind us.
Its turns out the guy we took the gym from had showed up in that time and had been waiting behind us without his headlights on.
Needless to say we all about shit our pants and start screaming and drove away as fast as we could. He didn't follow us and in the end we all laughed about the whole thing.
The only thing that creeps me out about the whole this is that that someone was able to drive up on us like that and none of us noticed. Had he knocked on my window I would have stroked out.
