Alabama: Huggin’ Molly
She’s not meant to cause death, just one hell of a fright
Heard about the Alabama urban legend, Huggin’ Molly? This urban story is popular among parents who tell their kids not to stay out late at night if not the screaming lady would hug them and scream in their ears. Kids have been afraid of this urban legend ever since but young adults may have disregarded this urban legend as a hoax. Maybe their raging hormones and misjudgment of their social environment made them not believe in such stories.
Well, as for me, if a story is regarded and categorized as an urban legend, I would rather believe them than disregard them. This is not because I would believe in everything even though I don’t see it, I don’t want to upset anyone or anything per se out there and to prove to me that I am wrong later.
Here is a story revolving around this urban legend.
So, one night, as Henry was hanging out with his friends on his bike late at night, his parents yelled at him from his house to get home quickly as dinner was ready. Since it was not a school night, Henry disregarded his parents’ worries and continued to hang out with his friends on his bike. They stopped at one of the convenience stores and bought themselves some snacks before heading home that night. He carried his bag of snacks back home that night and peddled his way back home with his friends.
Then, they parted ways to their homes that night, and as little Henry was peddling his way back home, he noticed how the night was so quiet and creepy. There was no air felt at that time and Henry suddenly became afraid of something. His bicycle suddenly stopped in the middle of the road and the chain was hanging out of the wheels. He got down from the bicycle and started to fix his bike chain slowly. So, he had his bag of snacks in one hand, and in another hand, he tried to fix the chain back.
Then he felt someone grabbing him from the back and screaming in his ears. Henry was shaken with that scream in his ears and he was shivering in fear. He couldn’t move his body due to the extreme fear in him. Whatever grabbed him from the back pushed him down to the ground hard and vanished from his sight immediately. He did not see anyone behind him when he heard the scream in his ears but he caught a glimpse of someone’s white hair floating at the corner of his eyes. Without any hesitation, he left his bike on the road and started running home and screaming his heart out like a maniac.
His parents rushed out of the house to grab him and ask him what was going on. He explained everything through his sobbing that night. His parents found a long strand of white hair on his t-shirt that night when he changed into his night clothes. Poor Henry did not even have the appetite to have his dinner that night and went straight to bed out of fear. He asked his parents if he could sleep with them since Henry was still afraid of what happened that night.
