I’m pretty sure you have all heard of Slenderman. Well, no, this is not exactly about him. People think of him as a slim, tall man. His face, lacking expression. His arms, branch-like. They say if you catch a glimpse of him, a moment later he’ll be gone. Soon he’ll capture your attention more often & appear closer each time. & sooner or later, you;ll disappear, with no trace & no remains.
This is complete bullshit. How would I know this? I’ve experienced the truth before. I’ve tried to tell people, but, alas, nobody believes me. I decided to share it with you here because I know at least one person is going to read it.
Anyway, there’s a story in my family, one which my grandmother told me, it dates back to 1585, when the Roanoke colony disappeared without a trace. My Great, great, great, etc. Grandfather, John, had been the one to discover the disappearance. According to the textbooks & other “credible” sources, there was scarce evidence left behind to show what happened. That’s not true. John had discovered abnormally large footprints, multiple burned down houses, & tracks. John followed these tracks days on until he found the end. It was a few yards from a cave. He could here cries & screams from the cave.
Screams of bloody murder & other horrid noises. He shouted, “Who’s in there?” & heard a blood-curdling growl. Out came a 10 ft. tall man. His arms & legs were the width of at least 6 men. His skin was pure black. His eyes were a frightening amber. He smiled, ear to ear with his sharp yet dun teeth. John bolted into the woods & sprinted as fast as he could until he reached the ship. The figure was nowhere to be found. He boarded it & sailed for days back to England.
When he arrived, he informed as many people as he could of what he saw & what happened. Nobody believed him. He was declared insane & was put into prison. Everyone spread rumors of this monster but changed the story up.
Now, once someone disappears due to this “Slenderman” chances are, they’re in that cave.
I wouldn’t dare look for it, if I were you. I tried, multiple times. I’ve decided to stop looking after something awful happened earlier today….
I was about 50 miles from the area where they disappeared, it was dusk time & I decided to sit for a moment. As I do so, I hear a rustling sound in the distance. I thought it was probably an animal. I lied on the ground & shut my eyes for a moment. I didn’t realize how long that moment was until I hear a loud growl, opened my eyes, & it was pitch dark. I freaked out & ran into a bush. There I watched as the beast my grandmother described in her stories stomp past me.
It stopped for a brief moment & gnashed it’s teeth. then it looked directly at me. I froze, hoping I was concealed by the bush. The beast reached down, grabbing my bag that I was dumb enough to leave infront of a rock & tore it in half. I held my breath, hoping it would not notice me. The leaves, scratching at my skin. That’s when he began to walk away. I waited ten minutes before climbing out of the bush.
For a moment, I thought I was dreaming. I thought it was all a nightmare. It wasn’t. My bag was stained crimson, probably from his last meal being stuck to his hands, & shredded. I jolted for my car & never returned to that site.
Here I am in my hotel room. Telling you all about this creature. Hopefully, it won’t find me. I was dumb enough to leave my bag behind, so I have to get it tomorrow because I’ll have proof. Luckily, the hotel is only 5 miles from where I was. I’m going to go to bed. But I keep seeing something move from the corner of my eye. I’m just paranoid, probably. I’m still shook up.
Anyway, if anyone ever says “Oh, I SAW SLENDERMAN!” Don’t believe a word they say. It’s all crap. The reality is frightening.
