Today i watched Slenderman bring in a few kills, his normal amount for the week. i sat on the couch reading a paper. i notice the date to the paper, my birthday was a few days ago, i turned 16. i got up off the couch and followed him to the basement where he kept bodies neatly stored. “Hey, haven’t talked to you in a while,” i laughed over my coughing. “Yes, it has been long since we’ve had a conversation Hoodie.” He replied placing one body on top of another. i have taken to the name Hoodie quite well, my old name reminds me too much about me. . . *cough cough* “You know Hoodie, you’ve had that cough for a while now . . . maybe you should see one of those doctors.” i guess he’s right but i haven’t been to a doctor in years i don’t have any insurance to see one, i don’t have a human guardian to take me either. *Coughing* “Your funny Slender, but did you know it was my birthday a few days ago?” i asked him, he dropped the body and looked up from where i was sitting on the staircase. “Really? Hmm, i did not know. How old are you now.” “16,” i answered. “Happy 16th birthday Hoodie.” He told me. “Thanks, i think im going to go for a walk in a bit.” i told him smiling. “Alright, just be careful.”
‘screw walking i want to go to town i know there is one near by here, maybe i’ll walk there.’ i thought as i headed to my room. i got out some scissors and started cutting holes in this big black beanie one of Slenderman’s victims had on,i cut a frown smile in it, then i cut those shapes out of my red curtain and sewd them to it. it looked really cool, so i wore it for my walk. This is good, no one will know what i look like now. i pulled the Beanie down over my face and put my hood on like usual.
i walked for about 5 miles through the forest and came across a small town. i saw a man about 20 went in and out of this ‘Doctors Office” when got out he had a small orange bottle filled with pills to the top, he stopped at the curb before crossing the street to his car, took about 5 of them out and ate them dry. He had a cough just like mine. i was about to start walking toward the doctors office when Slenderman appeared behind me and pulled me down on my knees where i was. “Ugh, what now.” i asked him. “Do not follow him, that is Tim.” he looked down at me saying. “Tim is interesting, he has what you have, that cough that you have. i have been stalking him for a while and been very caught up with his friends, Hes 20, he seems to have the same similar interest with me, as you do.” He told me. “His friends hate me, Tim hates me and they all want me gone.” he said. “i think you are alright,” i told him coughing quietly. “Hehe sure you do.” He said ‘laughing.’
Slenderman barely held emotion but he managed to make me consider him as a friend. We both followed this Tim guy for a while, Slenderman got this weird looking mask and left it around Tim’s house, from time to time again he would put it on and change his personality, we would hang out and i named him Masky, we would do all kinds of crazy stuff together. i don’t know where Slenderman got this mask but when Tim puts in on hes Masky and when he takes it off and hes Tim, he doesn’t remember anything he does when hes Masky. This way, he doesn’t know his own name so when he takes the mask off, he’s Tim again.
We would do this every so often until i turned 17, then his friends started hating his ‘other personality.’ His friends ex-friend Alex, is trying to kill me, Tim, and this other guy named Jay who always has a camera. i’ve begun to follow Alex, and sleeping in this run down hospital, i started carrying around a gun too. its been like this for a while and i don’t exactly know where Slender is going with this, but i’ve been alone in that house so long that its been getting kind of fun to play with these guys. i barely talk anymore, i’ve been breaking into Masky’s house and stealing his pills. They help with the coughing, headaches, and little seizures i’ve been having. I can’t exactly tell what side i’m on any more. i want to help Tim and Jay with Alex and Slenderman, but Slenderman is my friend in a way, he took me in as one of his own.
i don’t know what battle to fight i’m in the middle again, just like with my brother, do i stay? Or do i go?
~~~A year later~~~
its been a year and im still going with this whole ‘Marble Hornets’ crowd, Slenderman has plenty of Proxies living with us now, i don’t really talk to any of them though. i feel weird around them. Jeff is somewhat new he came to us a few months ago, just wandering around killing everyone. BEN, came in after Smile, and there are a lot more. i guess its kind of nice to be around people who are similar to you. i stay in my room most of the time though, usually watching some of the YouTube videos Slendy got in, they are funny because he doesn’t want to kill ALL of them just a few select people. Everyone i live with is known on the Internet as CreepyPasta, i’m in there too, no one really knows my story though so its kind of fine to me, but people like Jeff and BEN get written about a TON. i’m in a few of Jay’s video’s which is probably why people know me.
i just sit back in my chair and read. i still hold my knife with me and wear my key at all times, since that day i’ve held on to all of these things, including my brother's hoodie which i wear at all timesj along with my mask. Hanging out in my room alone, is just a normal day.
