This is the first time I’m submitting a story, and English isn’t my first language so I’m sorry if there’s a few mistakes in my writing.
This thing happened last year, so I was 14. There’s this “dating app” for teenagers I used as a joke, and it was connected to Snapchat, so whenever you matched with someone you’d add them on snapchat so you could continue talk to your match.
As I said, at first I used it as a joke, but then I matched with this really hot guy and I thought: Oh well, would it hurt to try? So i accepted his request to be my friend on snapchat, I sent a shy hi to him and waited for a response, it took him 2 hours to respond and the only thing he sent was a blank black picture, I didn’t think much of it and continued my day. The next day I got a message from him, a picture of a very familiar building; My school.
I was a little freaked out but figured he probably went to the same school and it just happend that I haven’t noticed him in the corridors.
Then my phone started vibrating like crazy during a class, to give a little perspective, we have glass doors and windows giving us access to look out in the corridors during class, and when I looked at my phone I saw maybe 15 pictures sent to me from this guy, pictures of me, sitting at my desk in my classroom, the pictures kept coming, and it looked like they were taken from outside that window next to the door, when I looked there, I saw someone, standing, outside that window, with a phone in his hand, pointing at me. He was wearing a black hoodie, with the hood covering half of his face, and the other half was pale, with a sharp jawline, thin lips curved into a grin,
I saw my friend, she was looking at him too, and her face turned red and she started shaking, we were the only ones who saw him, because as fast as my friend tried to speak, he was gone, my friend stood up from her chair and went to the door and opened it, it caught my teachers attention and we had to explain what we saw, my teacher went out and looked for him and then told the office and they spoke out a messenge in the speakers telling everyone to look out for this man, since then I haven’t used Snapchat, it was one of the apps I used all the time before, and I’ve never added random strangers since then, it still creeps me out,
though it could’ve been a joke and it must’ve been someone who knew me from before, but it was still scary, and it made me a lot more paranoid about strangers on the internet.
