The Slender One
Prologue: Jessica was eleven at the time. She was just a regular girl, leading a regular life. Nothing out of the ordinary. Her dad, Daniel, was walking her back from school. “Daddy, can i walk through the woods, the woods is my favourite place in the whole world!”. said Jessica. “Fine.” said Daniel. She could hear something drop out of her bag.
“Please dad, That was my most favourite toy! PLEEAASE!!!!!!”.
“No, you know what happens” snapped her father.
“You know, sometimes, i wish you weren't my father at all.” Jessica replied, then trotted out of the door, slamming it as hard as she could.
She could hear her father screaming through the door, “COME BACK HERE RIGHT THIS INSTANT!” but it was too late. Jessica was already running.
This was not you’re average forest, it had trees as high as the as the naked eye could see, mostly birch wood. Jessica knew about him, she never dared speak his name, all she called him was, The Slender One, He wears a black suit, complete with White shirt and black tie. She has seen MarbleHornets Youtube Channel, but she was still willing to risk her life for her toy. She was casually walking along, or at least, it looked like it. Inside, she was having a small heart attack.
But… while she was walking along, she noticed there was something almost glowing in the light of her torch, To her surprise, it was a page. The page read, TURN BACK, with a hand drawn picture of some trees, and, a tall man. Her heart stopped. She recognised it the moment she saw it. The Slender One was haunting these woods. She kept on moving, this time with a lot more pace. She looked around trying to find her toy. She was getting a faint headache. She could see a faint white light slightly off of the ground. She could also see more light beneath it, and she could make out black tentacles, slithering around like Black Adders. She ran as fast as she could, her heart was pounding as fast as a drum, finding it hard to even breath, she was almost tripping over her laces, if she did, that was it. She kept on running. She found something in the distance.
It grew bigger as she ran through the cold fog. She found, something that was in quite an odd shape. Maybe it was… no, it couldn’t. There was a house standing right in the middle of the woods. She walked inside. While she was walking round in the tiled corridors, She found, to her surprise, another page, it read “NO EYES, ALWAYS WATCHES”. By now, she was half alive, half unconscious.
She was still moving though, singing “ring a ring a roses”, which in her case, was her only real medicine. “A house in the middle of the woods seems a bit weird.” She exclaimed to herself. (to be honest she was in the early stages of insanity.) Abruptly, the house collapsed into ash, The Slender One in front of her, holding her toy as if to say “I’ve won”. Her vision was going fuzzy, until it went……….black.
Epilogue: The following day, she got up feeling rather ill. One, she had a headache, and two, She looked rather pale. Wait…..pale? She got up and turned around. HE was standing behind her, but she didn’t feel a headache, but instead, he talked in this weird alien language, which she could somehow understand. “Welcome, sister.”
