It all started about 6 months ago. Everything seemed normal, life as usual. I was having a late night with a friend of mine, we were watching her little brother. When her mom finally came home, it was about two in the morning. They offered me a ride, but seeing as how it’s a small town and it was nice weather, I decided to walk.
I had just left, I had gone about a block when I suddenly got the feeling I was being watched. “It’s a small town, so who the hell would be watching me at two in the morning?” I mumbled it under my breath, I really hate creepy people. Well, I came up to the old metal walk bridge, its crappy single square light in the center, the spider webs that covered the overhead beams, it was always the same. I remember thinking to myself that I would be fine as long as I stayed there, only two ways to get to me and the bridge, although dimly, was lit nonetheless. Then the light flickered, and shut off. “Son of a..” At this point, I was pretty annoyed, not to mention a bit tired. But I felt it again, the sensation of being watched. I turned around just in time to see something move, something big, something with the same shape as a human but different. Maybe I was just crazy, but I started yelling. “Who’s out there?! You don’t want to mess with me!” And then everything went cold. I felt a chill run down my spine as I gazed into a pair of crimson red eyes. There were two more behind it. They were all dressed in black robes. They didn’t speak, but they did make a sound. Like when you breath out on a cold winter day to see your breath, it sounded like that. Then I blinked, and they were gone, and the light was back, and I ran home.
Since then I’ve had several occasions where I felt that sensation. The sensation of being watched. I knew they were there, somewhere nearby, in the shadows just staring with those lifeless eyes. But I didn’t see them again until last week. My girlfriend and I had (yet another) fight. i stormed out, I really hate getting so mad at her but I could never stand how slow she was sometimes. It’s my own fault, that she got dragged into this. It was late, close to midnight, and I walked home again for the first time in months. I was surprised and relieved when I didn’t feel them there. “Finally” Another under my breath word, but i spoke to soon. I looked up and saw them, only two this time, standing? no, more like hovering, side-by-side. Those eyes.. they startled me, and I fell backward. They made that sound again, and they vanished. The nearby streetlight flickered back on, I hadn’t noticed it was off. When I got home I had nightmares the entire time I slept, and woke up screaming more than once.
The next day I received a phone call in the afternoon. It was my girlfriends mom. She told me that after I had left last night, she had heard her daughter screaming. When she ran to see what was the matter, her door was jammed shut. The screams grew louder “No!” she yelled, “Stay away from me! STAY AWAY!!!!” She heard something break and then one last scream. “Those..THOSE EYES!” And then her mom broke through the door. She found her daughter curled into a ball in the corner, a terrified look on her face. She told me she was hysterical, and that she would occasionally whisper my name, and the phrase “You need to run, they’re watching you.” They took her to the mental hospital a couple towns away after that, and I haven’t heard anything since. But I’m afraid that they will do much worse to me, and that I don’t have much time left. That’s why I wrote this, so you can all be warned. If you’ve seen them too, if you have felt them, even heard them, you need to be careful. Because they might be watching you too, from the shadows, with those eyes…
