A myth submitted to the site by Aadilah Yasmin Ahmed (Wrighsmin)
Ever had that strange prickling feeling, that creeps right up your spine, when you're alone. As if there may be someone or something watching you?
Ever felt like your not the only one in your room at night, there's someone watching you, in the corner. Just watching. There's something definitely there, you can feel their presence pulsing from the corner of your room, sometimes it grows strong. But why can't you see them? Or it?
Even now, in the silence as you read this. Behind you. Next to you. At your ear. Watching. Reading this with you, with an amused smile. Be careful, he knows you're reading this. He sees your eyes scan this story I tell you now as you feel the need to squirm because, why can't you breathe properly? Why does it feel like someone is here with you, sharing your oxygen.
Even now, in this noise so loud as you read this. Brushing your shoulder. Inches from your back. You can drown it out, the noise. Tune into his presence. The shadow. Deprived of light and filled with menace. He's watching.
Are you sure that movement from the side of your eye was your imagination? That strange raspy breathing, was all in your head. That strange raspy breathing that you're now feeling, inching somewhat closer...Brushing the bare skin of your neck.
Have you ever lay in bed at night, awoken by a sudden presence and you can't breathe? You just lay there, paralysed? You can't sit up, everything's blurry and your vision is hazy as you fight to breathe. Sucking in a long, shaky breath. Gasping out a short burst of wind as you struggle to cling to the small amount of control you have over your soul?
Don't let the shadow take it.
Don't let the shadow take you into the depths of his miserable eternity in the shadows.
'cause he is there.
Trust me. I would know.
For I am now, a victim of The shadow.
His new acquaintance. His new friend.
And now you know too, like I did, you will be joining us soon. So please be a darling and say hi to death for me. He's on our side now.
And I wait in the soulless depths of his dark despair. Hunting the homes of innocent scared families. Creating an army built for war in the limbo us shadows live in.
We will rise.
I am The Shadows new best friend.
