My entire world is ending. I’ve been watching my back for the past few days, and even though I thought I had gotten rid of it, it is still behind me! It watches me and I know it does. I’ll just be sitting in the library on campus when I’ll notice a feeling of being watched, I’ll turn and see it. I need a way out of this. I should probably explain a little more of what I mean.
Back in September of 2014 my friends and I all went to the fair for some fun. We did games and rode in the sky lift. It was when I got home I decided to go online to look at those “haunted games” you see. Like for example, the Midnight Game is one a read a lot. Then I saw a new one, this one says that you need a person from the opposite sex to play it with. So I got my friend Hannah to play it with me, she came over and sat on my bed while I read the instructions aloud. All we had to do was sit back to back and say on simple word every other second. The word was “**********” and it was not easy to mess up on. We also had to close our eyes and have lit candles all around the room. We sat on my bed and closed our eyes after lighting the candles. Then we both said “**********”. We waited for something to happen, I had also read that we were not supposed to open our eyes until we’ve said the word 10 times. So we said it again after four seconds. And again until we had said ten of them. I know for a fact it was ten because I would open my palm and place a finger on my chest after each time. So I opened my eyes and all of the candles were out. I turned around to see Hannah and she was crying.
“Why are you crying?”
“Hannah, did you put out the candles?”
“Wallace I’m so sorry…”
“Hannah, what did you do? Answer me now.”
“Hannah, ANSWER ME RIGHT NOW.”
“Now, Hannah! NOW!”
“I opened my eyes in the middle of the game!”
I stared at her, I didn’t know what to say. She was still crying very hard and looked as if she had died. I turned on the lights and opened my laptop back to website.
“Hannah, what did you see.”
“I barely saw anything, I swear! It was too dark for me to see anything!”
“Hannah, tell me what you saw.”
I got back to the web page and searched up the game and what happens if you opened your eyes during the game. It said nothing much will happen, but it is only applicable if both opened your eyes. If only one opened, it’s not good. Obviously this was a very scary situation, not only was I going to get hurt from this, but Hannah was going to get an even more severe punishment. I kissed her on the forehead to get her to calm down, then I walked her back to her dorm room. I told her goodnight and then headed back to my dorm room. I was halfway back when I heard what sounded like footsteps behind me, I turned around and saw nothing. I shrugged it off and continued walking in the night back to my dorm room.
The next day I was awoken to the knocking at my dorm room door. I got up and walked to it and opened it to see Hannah standing in front of me. I let her in and she sat on my bed. I sat on my chair and we sat there quietly for a good ten minutes until she spoke up.
“I saw something.”
“A figure, it looked human, but I couldn’t tell completely. It was putting out all of the candles when it would look at us to make sure we had our eyes closed shut. I didn’t see anymore until it walked up and started breathing on me. That was when you said it was okay for us to open our eyes.”
“That sure is something.”
“The worst part was this morning. I was walking with my friend Amelia and I heard some footsteps coming closely behind us. I turned and saw someone I didn’t know. I asked Amelia what she thought of that girl behind us, she turned and said she saw no one. I turned and she was still there. I asked her if she was joking and she looked completely serious.”
“I had something like that happen to me last night! I was walking back from your dorm room and heard some footsteps, I turned around but saw nobody there…”
“You’ve got to be messing with me. I can’t believe it. Please, stop.”
With that she dashed out of the room. If only her last words to me weren’t “please, stop”. The police found her body mangled and destroyed a few miles from campus. She had been missing for two days until they found her near a supermarket parking lot. Her arm was broken, her bone in her leg was completely shattered, and her throat was slashed. I was terrified for this. I was one of the last people to see Hannah, so I knew the police were going to ask me about what happened. I heard a knock at the door, so I went to go check it out. I looked out and saw a man in a track suit just standing in front of my door. He wasn’t moving, he was just staring at my door. He knocked again.
“Get the fuck away from me!”
That got some other people to turn their heads. They walked up to my door and started asking if I was alright in there. They didn’t notice the man in the track suit. I ran to the window, after grabbing my cell phone and keys. I didn’t want to know what the man was going to do, but I sure as hell didn’t want to find out. I opened the window and slowly moved over to the rain gutter and went down both floors and managed to get away. I got into my car and started to drive away, I didn’t know where to go and I looked up. I saw it in my rear-view mirror. It kept walking towards my car. I sped up more and got off campus and away from it. Since then I started doing research about the game Hannah and I had played. The game is detailed as a vicious attempt of immortality. If you can manage to avoid the temptation of looking at the creature, even when it gets close to you, you will be granted immortality. However, if you gaze upon it, it will try to kill you. Nobody will see it, only you and the other player. No one has survived looking.
Now that I’ve gotten to the point of my story where I needed shelter I’ll tell you this. I am not rich, so I have to go to a dollar store or a fast-food restaurant for anything. I went to my friends’ place to crash and they said it was okay. I took the extra bed that was in their room. Then it came back. It was a woman this time, it wore a blue dress and was banging on the front door. I knew what it wanted, so I tried to get back to sleep. This was only until I heard a scream come from downstairs. My friends and I ran down and saw that it had murdered their mother by ripping out her tonsils. I ran back up the stairs, hoping that it would follow me and not them. I got to the second floor and realized that the hall seemed longer than it should. I turned the corner and saw my friend Alex was being hung. I ran out of that room, she was getting closer. I ran into another room to see my other friend pinned against the wall. I kept seeing everyone I knew and loved dead in each other the rooms. I wanted an escape, I got into a room where I saw Hannah’s dead body and I jumped out the window. I waited for the fall to kill me.
I opened my eyes screaming as the last candle was put out, the creature stood the hunched over my bed it smiled and then vanished. Hannah turned around wide eyed and crying.
“Hannah, I saw it too. There’s no need to be sorry.”
I hugged her as she started sobbing into my shoulder, then I heard footsteps down the hall and banging on my dorm room door.
