The hallway echoed as it were to mock me in my very steps. The sound of water from the roof leaking between the cracks. This all makes me more aware of who I am. Yet I feel unwelcomed in this very building. As if I am being watched, I feel more hesitent I start to feel a sensation I never felt before. This could be any feeling but I ignore this. I seem to see a doorway, the doorway interested me most in this long and dark hallway. I decide to look in it. As the corner of my eye begins to creep into the edge of the doorway. I notice something in the darkness, as I begin to focus I began to feel like i'm in danger. Yet I still keep moving my entire face in the middle of the doorway. I finally can see what it is, a shadow. Yes a shadow I felt-I-see a shadow, I begin to see more and more of it by the second. It was just standing there looking away from me as if it never heard me or sensed me. I began the unthinkable. "HEY!", I yelled but at the very end my voice began to scratch. I began to feel uncomfortable. My neck started to feel tighter and tighter, the shadow turned around. His face was brighter than he body as if it has been blurred out. I can hardly breathe at the moment as it begins to whisper. The whispers felt like and heard like they were in my head. Yet I do not feel fear as only there is the feeling of being unwelcomed. As I look more deeply at the shadow I noticed that it was hunched over like it was sad. I have felt this sadness before that he was emitting I felt it many-many times. I begin to feel at ease for a second but then the shadow jolted. At first I thought it was after me but when it got closer and closer slowly inching towards me. I feel like it's not wanting to harm me but left alone. The whispers begin to dim, I can distinguish his facial features as he is infront of me. So close I can feel almost like he is breathing but I feel like there is no body but a face. This only makes me more curious than ever. The face suddenly jerks away from me, this scared me quite a bit as such a appearence would make anyone scream. He has probably been seen before but with different outcomes, it's almost like it wants help, but I don't want to risk it. I turn around and bolt through the hallway reaching the exit of the wretched building. I slam the door open and a bright light from the sky hit my eyes almost blinding me after being in the dark building for soo long. I felt free but unwelcomed still despite being outside. Almost like I'm still be watched, so I keep running. Running and running I look farther and farther until I see a town. I reach the sidewalk in time, yet this feeling of unease makes me worry. I turn around and look into the woods, the shadow hunched over and looking at me behind the tree. This only scared me more like it wanted something from me, I begin to feel like a mad man. Everything begins to speed up inside my head, memories are flashing before me. I almost scream in terror but I was able to hold back as I was in the middle of a group of people when I snapped back. It was so terrifying so humiliating-so, horrific that I nearly attacked a man within the midst of this madness. Luckily he didn't see me nor did anyone care about me when I nearly screamed and look in terror. Well I'm glad they did otherwise they would of put me in a mental hospital of some sort. I begin to walk the opposite way of the crowd I slowly look back, the shadow standing in the group almost like that it is with them. None are in concern almost like they see him as a normal person. Could I be the mad one or may it be real, no one can understand this and I wouldn't never do. This figure this dark, dark, figure standing in the group like no ones business as people walk near him with no flinch or reaction not even in the slightest. I do not feel welcomed yet again in the midst of this madness, as the shadow begins to glare at me with disgust. Almost like it no longer whats me to look or acknowledge his existence. I comply and look away and being to walk faster and faster, I never even thought of looking back. I see a ally way, I walk into it. I see another figure standing in the far corner, could it be the shadow? I am not sure but I leave the ally with haste. My patience begins to dangle from a broken threat about to break. My feelings of curiousity is beginning to overwhelm reason. I just want to scream and find out what is happening to me. What is causing this madness and what I did to deserve this. Could this be all imaginery I would hope to believe since that is the only thing keeping me alive.
