Ever since I got my first computer a few years ago, I became obsessed with everything creepy on the internet. From ghost stories to paranormal videos. Anything that sent a chill down my spine when a random noise happened in the middle of the night.
So one day I was browsing for some horror stories, I found this website where you would talk to an A.I similar to this thing called Cleverbot instead this one apparently was meant to say some really creepy things and even make up stories that freaked the readers out. So I decided why not? I clicked on the link and went straight to the website. The website was just a black background and a text box to type. But next to the text box was a picture of a man somewhere in his 60′s. He was nearly bold and the hair left was a dark grey with red patches all over. He also had small piercing eyes that felt like they were watching wherever you were in the room, the thing that put me off the most was his mouth. His lips were a dark red with cuts going up and down all around and one gashing open the top of his lips so you could see the front row of teeth, they were all yellow and jagged which gave me the guess that he was meant to be the creepy part of the A.I chat.
I waited around two minutes waiting to see if anything happened like a jump scare or weird music to play. Nothing, just pure silence and the picture of the man watching you. I typed in hello in the chat and waited for something to happen. The text was in a bright red font and had grey shading all around making the red font stick out even more.
The A.I replied with “Hello.” Didn’t seem that creepy I thought, but that’s how most conversations start. It then added in slowly, each letter after the other making the words “What is your name?”
Around now a small pitched sound was coming out of my headphones that sounded like someone, maybe more than one speaking but I couldn’t make out what. The picture of the man then looked up and started to move his mouth up and down and the spoke the words it said in the chat. His voice was raspy and sharp. If I hadn’t had my audio on full volume, I wouldn’t have heard him at all. This seemed like a really poorly made A.I if everything was so slow.
I replied with a fake name just to see what happened as my real name Theodore really bugs me. So I nickname myself Joe after my friend who had to move away when I was 4. This is where everything started to get freaky. The A.I replied “Don’t lie to me Theodore.” Then like last time, the man spoke the words but this time a bit louder with a tone of anger. How the A.I knew name surprised me. I couldn’t figure out how it had done it so I just ignored it and continued conversation hoping to find my answer. The reason I didn’t directly ask is because I didn’t want to know how it knew my name.
I then asked it “who are you?” The man just stared at me for some time with a look of anger on his face. The A.I finally replied but instead of writing. It posted a link to a picture. I clicked on the link and it directed me to a new tab. There was the picture of a newspaper and on the front of the page was Serial killer escapes Lambent asylum. There was the then the story beneath but it was smeared in red, possibly blood, hiding the entire story. I closed the link and went back to the A.I
When I came back the dark background had gotten lighter and you could make out silhouettes in the background. The man now was snarling and you could see all his teeth. They were like the front row. All yellow and jagged but some near the edges were chipped and had bits of red sticking on the top. The A.I had posted another message, this one was asking me if I would like to hear a story.
I said ok as this seemed to be getting creepier and creepier which is what I wanted after all. The man then began to smile and instead of the story being posted into the chat. The man was speaking. The background noise was growing louder. I still couldn’t hear the other voices but there was a screeching sound like the one you hear if there’s loads of background noise on someone’s microphone.
Anyway, the story went something like this. I can’t remember it all as he only told me the story once. There was this child named Jacob. He loved to read horror stories online and then share them with his friends. One day he was talking to this man online who also loved horror stories. He told Jacob about the man who escaped an asylum and then went on a killing spree by stalking his victims using the internet. He would scare them until they were on the brink of insanity from all the stress. Then he would kill them and the body would be found with the logo of the website that the man used to stalk the victim. Jacob just laughed at the idea but a few days later, he was sent emails from a unknown user with pictures attached of dead people. The people would have all their clothes ripped off and a one a few, there was the facebook logo carved into their stomachs and the throats ripped open. Others had the Twitter logo made out of their intestines which were still connected to the inside of the stomach. Jacob began to get freaked out and tried to find who the person was. He disappeared a few days later apparently.
The man in the picture then just laughed and another link was posted into the chat. I didn’t want to see what this one was guessing where this was going but something pushed me forward. It felt like there voice whispering to me to continue listening and reading what the A.I had to say. The screeching had got louder and the voices you could hear a few words they were saying but the rest was just rambling. I could make out some words, they were telling me to….. Leave….. Go…… Don’t……to him….Coming.
I clicked on the link and it was a picture of a dead child. He must have been 10 at the most. He was hanging from a wall by nails hammered into his hands and fingers. His legs were just dangling and bits having been cut off. His body had 3 cuts going down from the chest to the stomach. It looked like he had been left there to bleed to death. On the wall in blood was the name Jacob. That wasn’t though what scared me the most. Jacob had his eyes open looking at me almost. There was tears running down his face and a puddle near the floor. But there was a shadow looming over Jacob. The shadow had 2 red eyes and a red menacing smile staring back at the viewer and the shadow of what looked like a long blade in his hands.
After 10 seconds of looking I closed the tab as soon as I could but the A.I page had changed again. The background now had red hands all over the page and white eyes glowing in the dark. The writing was now underlined with a red smear going across and the man…… Well his eyes were now bloodshot and blood was oozing out his mouth. He was still laughing and the voices in the audio had gone. Replaced by screams of children and adults.
There was then a new text slowly typed into the chat box. “Do you want to know what you and Jacob had in common?”
I asked what. I was enveloped in fear but the voice kept telling me to go on…..
Each letter was then placed with around 10 seconds time gaps. “I started by asking what your name was, you both lied…..”
It’s been 2 weeks now since I visited that website. I have nightmares about that man coming to kill me. He’s stalking me on my email. How he has my email I don’t know but he keeps threatening me. He sends me pictures of corpses and his face in the corner….. Laughing. Today he sent me a email asking me why I lied. I asked him how he knew everything about me and why he was doing this.
He just sent me a message telling me to…. Turn around…
