Something in the Wall: Don’t go there…

I can’t believe what I saw! This is going to totally freak you out, but… I was wandering around town after work because I’ve been spending too much time in my room and needed to feel like I had gotten out and about without spending money I don’t have. Anyhow, I went to the little park just down the road from my apartment building. Jean, you know the one with the huge stone wall. I was walking on one of the upper paths and I smelled something horrible, like death. I couldn’t figure out where the smell was coming from, but when I rounded a bend in the path I saw it. There was a huge hole in the wall that was coated in this grayish-black stuff that looked like melted plastic. For a second I thought it was a service entrance for the subway lines beneath the street above, but it wasn’t. The smell was coming out of the hole so strong. I haven’t smelled death like that since I lived in Michigan and ran across a bloated dead deer on the road while biking. This was worse though. I had to get away, but as I was backing up and before I turned around, I swear I saw something or someone moving inside the hole. Just a quick glimpse of something shiny moving in the dark, but it freaked me out. I ran down the path away from the smell and called the police, but after 15 minutes and no one showing up, it was getting dark. I did not want to be there in the dark, so I left. Apparently, no one cares about bad smells in the park. I don’t know what it was, but curiosity isn’t going to overcome the nausea I felt there, so I’m not going back. I suggest you don’t either.
