This happend to me when I was 14. I am now 16 and I still have nightmares about it to this day.
I was once out with some friends, I’ll call them Leah and rob. My parents are not as strict as other parents. my dad would let me stay out until 11 at night and my mum couldn’t really say anything seen as she did not live with us.
I believe it was a Saturday so I was allowed out till 12 asking as long as I called my dad and told him I was safe. Me, Leah and rob went to a park near my house; this park was like any other park. It had a set of swings, a slide and all the stuff like that. Around the park was a dense woodland. Most parks are like that around my area as I live in a small country side village in England.
Me and Leah were on the swings chatting and laughing. Rob was sat on the slide directly opposite us. Rob has always had a thing for the super natural he’s had encounters with spirits but that’s a different story.
It was about 9:30pm and rob thought it would be a good idea to sit around and tell scary stories. That’s all he ever wanted to do. So after a minute of hesistation myself and Leah agreed. We sat round in a circle on the gravely floor . I put my phone flash light on and put it in the middle of us. I went first and told a seemingly boring story about the school we went to being haunted. No one thought it was scary at all, so rob decided to go next. He obviously had a story he was itching to tell.
‘my mum told me a story about when she was a little girl’ he said with a smirk and then carried on.
‘she said that when she was a young girl she used to see a man standing outside her window on a night. Apparently he was 7 to 8 foot tall, wore a black suit and didn’t have a face’
at this point me and Leah where trying to fight back the laughter. It sounded so ridicules. And then he said something that I will never forget.
‘She told me that he whispered to her on a night and told her to come to the window. He said he was her friend and wanted to take her to the woods to play.’
I felt a shiver go up my spine. Now I was getting a bit creeped out.
He continued ‘she says he lived in the woods around here. She told me that he would follow her to school and hide at the edge of the woods looking at her while she played with her friends.’
as he finished his sentence the air got so cold. A gust of wind flew through me and it felt so cold like Ice pressed on my skin.
I was scared now and Leah was too. We just stared at each other in shock and pure horror. Now this is the part I’ll never forget. Rob was silent. He sat there looking like he had seen a ghost. And then he pointed to the woodland behind me.
‘Guys…. he’s here’ he had said it with such a whisper I could hardly hear. I froze scared to turn round. Leah had turned her head quickly. And then she screamed. She got off the ground screaming ‘he’s here, he’s here!’
I did not look behind me all I did was get up, grab my phone and start running as fast as I could. As did my friends.
We had been running ten minutes and had got to the end of my road. I had to stop to take a breath. Hands on my knees I panted. And then I heard the whispers.
‘Come play, come play, come play in the woods with me’
I shot up and turned round. And there he was at the end of my street stood under a lamppost. He was around 8 foot tall. He had a black suit. And what scares me most of all. He had no facial features just an outline of a head and his skin was white as snow.
Me and my friends ran to my house busting through the door. My dad came into the hall way. I told him what happend and he looked scared. He told me to ring the police. So I did.
the police came about 10 minutes after that but they could find no evidence and thought we where just stupid kids telling a story.
That night I didn’t sleep. In the morning at the breakfast table my dad didn’t look right. He was pale and looked ill. I asked him what was wrong. All he could reply with is ‘I thought he had left a long time ago but he’s back’
that night I researched and found slender man. I’ve never seen him since that night and I hope I never will again. Me and my friends never talk about it and we all hardly speak any more.
