Have you ever felt like you're being watched? Have you ever felt like somebody is behind you when you walk? When you're alone? When the lights are off? We all do, at some point. Unfortunately for some of us...this isn't just our imagination.


7. Mockingbird

Nick froze. That was definitely not the first time he had heard that voice. He didn't take his eyes off of the clock...he couldn't bear to think what kind of monster was next to him...or maybe there was nothing there at all. Before, he had heard the voice, but never really seen anything until last night. And last night he was tired. He was probably just seeing things, right? Right. There couldn't possibly be someone standing next to him. After a constant self debate, he decides to turn around. A drop of sweat rushes down his forehead as he cautiously turns his head to the mysterious voice.


There, standing over Nick...was that same Silhouette. Nick still couldn't see the face, but he could definitely feel the hot breath on his face. Disgusting. It smelled like this person had not brushed their teeth in ages. Nick was terrified. He closed his eyes for 2 seconds, and opened them. His hopes of the man vanishing were destroyed. He thought of calling a nurse, but he didn't want to find out what would happen to him if this thing was caught. He thought of pressing the button that would call her, but the beep and light would give it all away. By the time the nurse arrived, he would probably be dead, or worse...gone. Nick had no idea of what to do, except hold his breath, and stare at the faceless man.


Nick managed to utter out a few noises, but was interrupted by the voice.

"Hello, Nick. It's good to finally see you awake." What did that mean? Had this man been watching Nick as he slept? Does this mean he won't harm Nick? If he wanted to, he could have killed Nick silently a long time ago, Nick thought. Maybe he was just sick, and likes to see people suffer. Maybe he would take Nick away to an abandoned building where nobody would be able to hear his screams... What did this man want from him?


"Wh-What.........what do you want from me?", Nick managed to ask.

"I don't want anything from you...Nick" The man replied. He hesitated for a bit before putting his hand to Nicks face. Once his finger and Nick's face made contact, Nick realized this mans skin was...charred. It felt burnt and old. He felt pieces of peeling skin as the man gently stroked Nicks cheek. Then the man put his hands in his pockets. When they came back out, he revealed a small pocket knife. He pressed a small button and after a small 'click', a blade was shown with what appeared to be blood on it. He rubbed the side of the blade against Nick's nose and chin. Then the man started humming. It sounded like the Mockingbird lullaby, But Nick wasn't sure.


The man stopped humming and stopped stroking the blade against Nicks face. It was dead quiet. Not a single sound was made as the man slowly bent down and put his ear to Nicks un-breathing mouth. The silence was broken by a sudden shriek. It pierced Nicks ears, but it was coming from the doorway. Nick quickly turned his head to the doorway to see a nurse staring at the knife dripping with blood. She stood there, completely terrified, knees buckled. The man quickly got up, jumped over Nick and his bed, and jumped out of the window on the second floor of the Hospital.
