1080 days ago
When you were around five years of age somebody watched you in your sleep - his name was Jeff and he was your age. You woke up one night - rain splattering against your window, a breeze washed over you. The window was open, he stood next to you - watching you with black bordered eyes and a large grin on his face - bits of flesh poked through. His hair was half way down his neck- his face a pale white colour, his skin rough and covered in a layer of scars. You talked to him each night - looking forward to waking up to see him. "I have seen your home and I want you to see mine." he told you one night - you climbed through the open window and he led you through the forest to a house. It wasn´t a house. It was a mansion. Made out of great oak wood inside and out - there were some people your age. Three girls who were chatting to each other - a boy playing window games, a boy doing medical skills, a boy eating candy, two boys making cakes, a tall man who was older nursing a small baby girl and five baby pets striding around. You couldn´t remember all the details but that night was fun - playing with them all and enjoying yourself. The next day you woke up in your bed. After that Jeff stopped coming to visit you, you still remembered his face which you wished to see each night so badly. He was your friend. He didn´t come back again to visit you - each night when you woke up the window was shut and he wasn´t there. When you told your parents about him they told you it was your imagination - you were put in therapy. Trying to be convinced he wasn´t real, that there was no mansion, no anything. You didn´t coperate. You looked out your window most nights - hoping to see him again.
The sun was setting quickly that night - your flashlight blinked and it got colder every minute. Your h/c hair was flowing in the wind. You were trying to find the mansion. You remembered running through the forest with Jeff - as you did you blinked back tears. The mansion had to be here - right? It couldn´t have been fake - tears ran down your red cheeks as you tried to find it. You felt yourself being watched - a piece of paper which looked like it had been pulled from a notebook blew on the ground - you grabbed it and read :
Jeff The Killer
Jane The Killer
The handwriting was terrible - scrawled in a deep dark pencil - smudged but still readable. Tears brimmed in your eyes again as you read the names - Jeff. It was all their names - you knew it was, you breathed heavily - the mansion had to be somewhere around here. You felt eyes watching you - somebody in the shadows. "Your Y/N" a small voice said - a young girl stood beside you. "Yes.." you breathed - "Jeff talks about you." she said before you blacked out. You woke up in the mansion - everyone crowded around you - you were there! Everyone had grown - Slender seemed taller - the pets fully grown, the others your age. Sally stood in the shadows - she was about six-nine years old now. (If you are like twelve-thirteen then she grew in double time) Everybody stared at you, "Hey guys.." you say. "Y/N?" a voice asked - it was Jeff. Your eyes widened as you flung your arms around him - "Jeff!" you cried. "Why did you stop visiting me?" you asked through tears, "Because that´s when Slender told me I could kill people.." he groaned and rolled his eyes. The Rake limbed over to you - growling but then licking your hand. It was as large as you - maybe even bigger if it wasn´t hunchbacked but it seemed like a small pet - you stroked it´s disfirgured and hairless back. "Y/N - your back." Slender said happily - he didn´t had a face but you could still hear him talk - "Your now going to become a creepy-pasta." he said, "I know you talked about us - but that´s when you were little, you can´t talk about us.. We are famous - some sightings of us go a long way, yeah yeah we´re creepy pastas but still don´t talk about us or newspapers will come looking for our mansion." You nodded sadly and hugged him - everyone had a group hug.
