This happened in '08 and may possibly have been my very first contact with a demon, and I want to get some opinions from people more experienced in this than I am yet.
Long story short- I was leaving a store one night around 3 am and was followed very aggressively by a man in a green car who I felt was not human. At first glance he looked normal, but his eyes had exaggerated black irises larger than a normal human’s. They looked like those weird anime contacts that make your eyes look bigger. His stare was incredibly intense and unnerving, and after he chased me down the main street of my town, I pulled into the police station and his car disappeared behind the building and never emerged. It should have, the building was freestanding and there was nowhere he could have turned in once he drove past it. After the car disappeared, I called the guy I was dating at the time and told him what happened, I was really shaken up so he told me to come over. I get there and told him the full story along with a description of the guy & his weird eyes, and my then-boyfriend got real quiet. He told me not to freak out, but that guy was probably a demon he regularly worked with and he was probably just “checking me out” since I was a new person in BF’s life. He gave a name which I promptly forgot, but it started with an A and had at least one Z in it.
For years I felt this demon’s presence around me, and since I couldn’t remember the name my ex had told me, I called him Azrael for the next decade. Weird stuff happened whenever I’d talk about him to other people, I remember one time I was trying to write on my old blog about the experience and the browser kept crashing as soon as I’d hit submit. I tried it on my laptop and the whole thing just shut down when I tried to submit. I’d be thinking about him while browsing Reddit or some other forum and I’d see a username with Azrael in it. Just little weird things like that. I grew to feel kind of close to him and would talk to him regularly, always calling him Azrael.
Now that I’m legitimately getting into Goetia and demon magick though, I know that couldn’t be his proper name as Azrael is an angel. I thought it could possibly be Azazel, but I can’t find a whole lot of info on him. I’ve thought about contacting my ex and asking him about it, but he’s married with kids now and I know I wouldn’t appreciate my SO’s ex randomly messaging him after 10 years to talk about some weird shit that happened when they were dating. lol.
Do you guys have any thoughts on this? Any other names come to mind? I realize this is rambling and vague, but I’d like to properly identify him if possible and maybe ‘officially’ work with him.
Thanks in advance.
