There is a superstition in my town. Of the big man in the forest. He likes to roam around after midnight. Watching children in there rooms at night sleeping. But you dare not be awake as for he will devour your soul and trap you in an endless loop of darkness. Is what my parents used to tell me. honestly i don’t care if you believe me… No one does. Not until you have seen IT. IT the guy that will look at you with its hollow eyes. His very slender figure Almost like it hasn’t eaten for years. You can see every rib move. Long black nails supposedly for opening its victims. To be honest it sounds like your classic horror story. But.. it isn’t. ones that thing stands in front of you, you will see every last thing IT has done. You see every horrible thing it has done. Why i call it IT you may wonder. Because when i saw him take my brother. IT looked at me.. not a single thing that i could do. Every helpless scream my brother laid out. Still rings in the back of my mind. That night.. that night was the night i lost myself.
Even now it is right in front of me not doing a single thing. But just staring at me. IT says every night ”sti ton emit tey tub i lliw emoc rof uoy” over and over and over again. Repeating it in its low demonic manner. Filling my ears… Filling my head. Filing the room with darkness. this night it said something different. ”dlihc em ot emoc”
i know what it said. ” COME TO ME CHILD” its time for me to go.
I slowly stand up and walk towards him i can now see my brother again…

The Shadow

It all started on my 7th birthday. Me and my friends brother and sister decided we should play hide and seek since my backyard was pretty big and i had space to run around and play.
its was a Friday evening around 8 o’clock and it was getting pretty dark. although our parents didn’t really care since my fences were pretty high so they weren’t worried of anyone getting lost in the woods behind my backyard.
My three friends, brother, sister and me headed to the backyard. when we got outside immediately a strong rush of wind blew our way.
We didn’t really think of it as a weird thing since it was autumn and it was getting colder. We assigned the groups off the hiders and the seeker.
i was amongst the seekers so my brother and two off my friends were hiding while me, my sister and my friend Chris were seeking.
we decided to split up so we could cover more ground. i went and look around the back off the yard and the other two went to the other side.
when i got there i crossed my back gate for some reason i didn’t want to go near it. i felt.. i knew someone was at the other side. how i don’t know but i didn’t want to find out who it was.
so i walked away form it. still searching i couldn’t keep my eyes off the gate. it felt like i had to open it. i kept telling myself to stay away but it was like a strong aura was emitting from behind the gate.
I wanted… no i needed to know what was behind that gate. i looked over my shoulder my sister and Chris where still searching. I looked inside the house… every one was busy talking. Ok it was safe to go and open it. I moved towards it.
The closer and closer i got to the gate the more nervous i was. i finally reached it i opened the door to see.. nothing. Nothing but woods at least. or so i thought at first cause when i looked deeper into the woods i saw a figure not a human figure no a smoke like figure.
Even though it was dark i could still make out its shadowy figure. i didn’t look at it for long because it hid behind the trees. That night i went to bed. i woke up at night i turned my head to look at my clock on my bed table it said 3:00 am. i wanted to sit up.
but i couldn’t.. it was like something was putting pressure on my chest. i couldn’t move. i wanted to scream but i couldn’t. I was so scared. but that fear of not moving was nothing compared to the fear i felt when i saw.. IT.. I saw the shadow in my room. i could move again.
i sat up and ran. i ran to my parents room. only to be welcomed by the gore and blood…
i ran to my brothers and sisters room. Only to see blood splattered on the walls. i stood there frozen. Suddenly the room was cold ice cold. i felt dread. a hand touched my shoulder. It was the shadow. he spoke…Now we can be together again…

The monster in my house

I’m a big gamer on the weekends and I love weed and alcohol I had just smoked 2 joints and was on my 3 bottle of beer and I kept hearing my name shouted by my mums voice from outside so I kept looking out there nothing and I thought that neither of my parents should be home for houses so I thought it was the weed so I ignored it until I fel asleep.

i was in the forest behind my family’s house and there was no noice at all and my the was these masive 8to9 foot things walking towards me in every direction and I got a phone call I answered it and woke up straight away to find out that my phones on my ear ringing I think weird but I answer it and [12:35] and I’m thinking proberly my mum saying we’re leaving now I didn’t look who phoned me but it wasn’t my mum this deep voice said we’re waiting and watching you look out your window and there they were theses 8to9 feet huge monsters looking all at me with there blacked out eyes there was proberly 6 of them 20 feet from my house and then they all walked backward until out of sight I called my mum then said we’re are you get home now and then

i dropped my phone when I remembered one was in my house i looked for about 30mins looking at locks in the house thinking were it could of got in from and were were my animals I told my mum and dad and they didn’t believe me and I told my grandfather and he said oh there harmless ignore them I said they took my dog he said oh yeh they don’t like animals a week after I made my parents stay home just in case I was playing my game when a German Shepard came flying through my window i called the police and m parents in and we moved shortly after and when I packed up in the car leaving I was looking into the woods and saw all of them looking and waving at me like it was a game to them


This word pedophile brings up the worst of thoughts in all of our heads doesn’t it. When in a community, a pedophile is an extremely dangerous mark to have. No body want their young to be attacked and I understand that completely. I had a long time girlfriend once but we both separated and I live in London now with a decent paying job and I was an ordinary bloke.

It all started when I went round to do some shopping and pick up some food as there was none in my flat. As I was driving back to my flat I noticed a group of strange kids just standing their with their heads down, I couldn’t see their faces properly and having to concentrate on the roads I could not observe for much longer. i remember stopping at the red lights and in that moment of waiting I swore one of those kids was walking behind my car and I checked by getting out and there was a hand mark in the dust of my car.

When I got back to the flat I put all of my food away and I checked my car again and the reason I felt so off about this was because I had never felt so scared before, it was weird. I had also come to notice that there were more hand marks on the dust of my car and I couldn’t wash them off with liquid and water. When I went back inside my flat I notice wet foot prints on my laminated flooring and I could not wash them off either. I started to hear in my sleep children laughing and playing and whenever I look outside nothing was their just the silence and some cars still on the road.

Bone-Saw (Revision)


Sure, there were tons of famous and some not so famous or more infamous skirmishes and battles for the South. The small piece of hilly terrain in somewhere eastern Kentucky butted us right into the mountain crevasse and the elements where hell. Three pair of socks at least every 6 hours of you could lose your toes to the black. Frostbite, famine and of course the enemy made our lives hell.

Our supply line had been broken miles back and ammo was becoming scarce as I witnessed men fastening their bayonets in lieu of what was surely to come. The air was quiet; the morning thick with dew and mist, whence even the squirrels had retreated this ominous morning. Every man knew it. No scuttle-butt pep talk from any Sgt. was going to shake the fear from these men, the Yanks waited only beyond the trees and the gully they currently formed in, probably breaking fast and applying their wares of death and terror. Oh God the waiting, the long tiring….on edge like a worm on a hook…waiting.

When dawn could give little more the drums and artillery started the barrage. Dirt, trees and men flew willy-nilly into the ditches and saplings surrounding us in the tight gulley. We struggled valiantly to bring our muzzles around and plant aim for just one enemy. The cyclones of impacted mortar fire churned the dirt relentlessly making visibility near zero at times. I crawled to the the parabola of the ditch, feeling exposed and indeed so, nonetheless I saw one: a Union soldier running full speed, bayonet fastened and leveled as he charged our embankment.

Racist Pedophile

It was 8 years ago and I was only young, my best friend and I were walking home in a small town in Los Angeles California.

We noticed that a black van with tinted windows, trying to avoid the van we tried walking a bit faster. The vans window starting rolling down slowly, and a man whose head was almost touching the top of the roof of the van. he had a large beard with sun glasses and an old ripped up t-shirt with an American Flag on it.

He asked us if we needed a ride home, but I quickly declined.

A few days passed and I didn’t tell my father or anyone anything. I seen the man again but this time with another boy about 7 years old. The first thing I did was ask who the man was, he replied with, “I am Bryce Livingston” in a deep dark voice. It wasn’t a few seconds before I was grabbed from behind and threw into the back of his black van.

Knock knock

Most nights my friends and I would prank each other by knocking and running on each other’s doors. It was great fun

Until one night I heard some one knocking. I went to the door and no one was there. I texted my friends saying “very funny guys. Knock it off. It’s like 3 in the morning”. I didn’t expect them to be awake but they were and all they said was “what do you mean the rest of us are at blakes house” (that wasn’treally his name because I don’t want to use his full name). I started to worry so I called my mum and dad. They didn’t seem to answer so I just locked the house up and went to bed.

The next night I had invited all of my friends over because they wanted to prove it wasn’t them knocking. Later that night at 3 am we all would hear knocking at the door. We all started screaming. After a while the knocking stopped. I call mum and dad to come home from the hotel immediately. My friends and I grabbed things from the kitchen to use as weapons to defend ourselves . As we watched in the backyard a man in black was standing there.

My mum and dad arrived home and knocked him out. And called police. They arrested the man but fined my dad for physical hurt. But we are thankful to this day we called for help

Girl on the Bench

I’m a college student and I love the college I go to. Right in front of it is a huge park perfect for students to study so it usually has at least ten people scattered around. On my way to college one morning I decided to take a longer route of walking through the park as I had woken up extra early and it was a nice day out. As I was walking I looked to my left to see a beautiful girl sitting alone on a bench reading a book, studying I assumed. She had a dated, 2ooo kind of style which made her stand out and it was quite charming.I assumed she was also a student at the college. She glanced up from her book and caught me staring. She smirked and I immediately looked away, feeling my cheeks turn a bright red shade.

The next day I decided to take the long route again because it was also a great day, but i secretly hoped to see the girl a second time. As I walked past the bench I saw her sitting there again, reading her book. I took out a book from my bag and sat down on the grass, at a reasonable length away from her. She looked at me and gave me a small smile and a wave. I smiled back and felt my heart getting heavy. I wanted to go up to her and start a conversation, I played it all out in my head, but I was just too nervous. So I sat there pretending to read my book until I realised it was time for me to head to class.

It had been a week since I saw the girl because weather predicts my routes and it had been rainy lately so I walked the shorter way. I was walking the short route when a man stopped me and told me I would have to go around through the park to get to my college due to construction. I was pretty annoyed as I would have to walk further in the rain and I had no form of protection because I wasn’t wasting the little money I had on an umbrella. To my surprise, I saw the girl sitting on the bench, reading her book, drenched and not even wearing a coat. She looked up and smiled at me. Full smile with teeth showing and squinted eyes. I was slightly freaked out as we were the only ones there and this girl was giving me weird vibes. I avoided eye contact and continued on my way to college.
