I was walking home form a party i had went to that night and i will say i was a little drunk. But what I saw that night was no figment of my imagination it was something of a sadistic being that seemed to be fallowing me in the shadows.
A few hours before hand I was in my dorm room playing “Silent Hill” when I heard a ring at the door it was my room mate Ryan he was your average book worm short and his head roughly the size and shape of a large cantaloupe. he walked in and told me about his crapy day at school getting teased by everyone but i was lost in a trance, as if someone or something was watching me form the far corner of our disorganized dorm room. I recall seeing a pair of crimson red eyes that looked more like spherical rubies and a mouth that was a small slit and it whispered in a voice that sounded like three demons speaking at once and could make your neck hairs stand on end “Don’t turn out the lights” it did what i thought was a giggle and vanished as quickly as it had appeared.
I had decided to ignore what I saw thinking it was only my mind playing tricks on me from the game and decided to come back to reality where Ryan had been talking his mouth off the whole time. I sighed and slipped into my black hoodie and put my wallet into my pocket and decided to go to the party that was mistake number one.
It was warm that night so I carried my hoodie with me, and I got that strange feeling again and I spun around and looked around and saw nothing. Then I looked down at my shadow and what I saw made my knees week and my skin turn as pale as paper. Right where my face should have been where the two red eyes and mouth from before but added to this already disturbing face was what seemed to be blood running down from the eyes and mouth and the hands of my shadow was blade like appendages at the end of my finger tips and my hands were curved in a U shape. That was all I needed to see i sped to the party at full speed not looking back at my creepy shadow mistake number two.
I arrived at the party around 9:00 the time that it started and I started to see what kind of people where at this party, I saw the jocks the cheer leaders and some of the nerd girls trying to look cool and blend in. I was also trying to get the “thing” I had seen out of my head so i had a few beers and listened to the music and then someone suggested that we all sit down out side and look at the stars. Mistake number three
we all sat outside and looked for shooting stars and looking at the beautiful full moon shining down on us casting dark and detailed shadows on the ground. things went great for about half an hour and then i decided to look at my shadow again and there it was but it was moving independently and what I then saw made my blood run cold, It moved from me and got close to another guys shadow and it ripped out the throat of the man`s shadow and ate it. As I stared in horror I looked at the man and to add to my horror I saw the man`s lifeless body blood pouring form where the front of his neck was. The monster kept on moving form person to person soundless and swift killing every one at the party until I was the only one left and it returned to my shadow as if nothing had happened. The smell of blood and decay was filling the air and i left the party and walked back to my dorm and changed my clothes to a red hoodie and dark jeans and i found a mask from a halloween party, It was red with black slit where the mouth is and has two black tears falling from each eye. I left my room key and walked away and left my old life behind and now I am the Shadow walker so what ever you do Don’t Turn Out The Lights.
