The Watcher 
Always watching always wating He took tommy he took stacey Slender man will come to get you In the woods and in your bedroom In the shadows he is waiting While you sleep and while your playing


That song has always got on my last nerve. It was just some stupid song that parents in this town made up to scare their children and their childern after them. Oooo slender man ooooo he waits in the woods oooooo. What a crock a shit. I grew up in this town, 16 years and not once have i ever seen this slender shit bag. I mean sure as a kid i sung the songs and was just as terrified as the next guy but as i got older the ten foot tall, black on black, faceless monster in the woods joind my long list of disappointments right along with santa, theo tooth fairy and all the rest of em.
But alas,that time of year again has arrived and with the coming of Halloween came what the townsfolk called slender man feaver. Even the mayor got into it, he would pose nexr to someone dressed as slender for the front of the paper every year. When i got to school the Eve before Halloween the slenderman mania was already on the brains and lips of every kid at Pennywood high school. It bothered me that kids on the brink of adulthood still gave into this crap.when i walked into home room i saw my best freind Carl fumbling around his backpack looking for a homework assignment that he clearly didn't have.
Just bring it in on moday Carl" yelled our teacher. "Ahh Mr Jamie simpson how good of you to join us, I'm sure you compleated you're assignment" he said. "Why yes sir" i replied. "Good now take you're seat" he said back.When i sat down i could tell that Carl had something he needed to tell me that was 100 percent more important than whatever our teacher has to say. "Hello Jamie" Carl said. "Hello Carl" I muttered back. " i have something amazing to tell you" he went on. "I figured" i replied to Carl. "This wouldn't have anthing to do with a certain slender figured beast who abducts children in the woods and does god knows what with them is it" i said. All the joy left his face all at once because that is exactly what he was going to talk about.
I let out a sigh "go ahead lay it on me" i said. "Well" he started," a bunch of us decided we would go explore the woods on Halloween to find the Slender Man" he explained. I stared at him for a moment hoping he could see what I was going to say before I said it. His look told me that he had."Well if you change you're mind" he started."I wont carl" I stated. The rest of the day came and went almost as if the universe had known i was dreading the day to come. In our small town of a couple thousand, Halloween was a big thing and many parents felt it perfectly fine for their kids to take the day off of school so they could prepare for the night of candy pillaging that was to come. My parents also saw this idea as a smashing idea,and of course i didn't mind.
I walked down stairs for breakfast until i saw the clock reading lunch time. Even better i thought. I walked into the kitchen to find no food but my mom taking mesurments on my sister who was wearing my barmitzva suit."what on earth are you doing" I proclaimed."getting my outfit ready for tonight" my sister Betty replied. "Thats not a costume stupid its a suit so unless you plan on scaring someone who hasn't paid their taxes in a while you wont be shocking to many people tonight I shouted at her." I never said it was a costume loser, its my slender hunting suit" she said."You were a suit like him and he wont be able to tell your a kid and he cant get you" she went on. "Stop" I shouted. "Mom you cant let her feed into this crap". "I seem to remember you feeding into this crap when you were younger" my mom snapped back. "Besides its not like she will be alone, you,Carl,Bonny,and jake will all be there" my mother went on. "No i wont" I spat back."Oh but you will or you will grounded the rest of you're weekend" my mother spat back."That's not fare" I started but my mother began her life isn't fare speach so i left as fast as i could, and just like that i was part of the hunt.
I saw them all gathering down in my driveway and god did they all look like idiots in those god damned suits.I made my way downstairs and outside to the rest of my freinds."I see you decided to join us" Carl started. "But where's you're suite" he asked."Im not wearing a suit carl, im wearing a t-shirt and jeans and p.s the only thing you guys are going to find in those woods tonight are giant mosquito bites on your asses"."Now lets go before I change my mind" I said. With that we we're off. Carl drove his moms van since he was the only one of with a licence.when we got to the park that met with the woods we stepped out and started looking through the supplies Carl brought."Ok flashlights check, snacks and water check, camera check,and of course the night vision goggles check". "Wait a sec why do you need night vision goggles" I asked Carl. "Well lets see we're going to be in the dark woods at night thus the night vision goggles Jamie" Carl explaind."Now lets move out!
We moved through the park past the playground and the sign that clearly says to stay out of the woods and finally we were here.I was more afraid of the complete darkness the woods was throwing at us rather than being caught by the slenderman. I could also tell that the flashlights we had wouldn't last much longer as the light coming from them was already dimming.
"How long are we going to be out here, my suit is stating to itch" Bonny complained. "Not long" said Carl. "If the legends are true the Slender Man can smell kids in his woods but we'll be safe on acount of our suits" I dont know how he feels about casual attire so if he gets you first jamie just know i love you bro" said Carl."will you shut the hell up" I yelled at him!We heard my shout echo through the woods and when it stopped the rustlling and movement started."This is it" Carl whispered."No its a squirrel or something it probably got spooked when i yelled at you." I said. The sound grew louder and louder like it was getting closer. I moved farther into the darkness and when i did the rustle and movement stopped and now all the woods stood before me in an erie silence."see" I said as turned around "just a squirre....
My freinds were no longer behined me but above me. Their bodys hanging from the branches of the tall trees impaled through each of their chest we're tree limbs sharp as daggers. But not even the image of my freinds struggling to live could prepare me for what came next. There he stood. 10 feet tall in all black. No face and tenticles made of shadows, the Slender Man had found us. I turned an ran as fast as my legs would let me. I wanted to scream or yell or anything but my brain just tild my body to run. When i finally collapsed from the pain of running so long is when the terror truly set it. If i couldn't run how would i get away.
The sweat and tears stung my eyes, this cannot be happening to me. "He is not real" I said to myself. I stood up to run and felt a sharp ringing in my ears that forced me back to my knees. When i opened my eyes there he stood. I cried out in pain and horror as he moved closer gliding above the leaves. I saw the shadow like tenticles form a sharp point and with a quick thrust my pain, my fears, and my worries seemed to slip away. I felt my body lift from the from the ground and the teticle that once impaled me was replaced by the branch of a tall oak, and as i started to slip away i could see him receding back into the night never taking his featureless face off of my lifeless body.....
Jamie....jamie....can you hear me....come on open you're eyes for me buddy come on...... When i opend my eyes there was a doctor standing over me and my parents as well." Whats going on" I managed to get out. "Dont speak" said the doctor you we'rein a bad accident about three days ago but you're in the hospital and you're safe now. Accident? "This was no accident it was the Slender Man i swear im not lying"! "Nurse we need a seditive now please" the doctor yelled. After they had me sedated the doctor explained what happened.he said that on our way to the woods a drunk driver leaving a party ran on us the road causing the van to flip killing everyone inside. They found me laying in the street with a shard of glass poking through my chest . It cant be i thought, we were in those woods we saw him...didn't we?
