“I can see you, you know.
That's right...I'm looking over your shoulder watching you read this.
No, don't turn around because you won't see me.
You turned around, didn't you?
But you didn't see me, and now you are back reading that damn quote.
Can you feel your neck hairs stand up on end? Can you feel those nerves racing through your body? Your increased heartbeat?
Don't smile, because I'm right here.
You turned around again, didn't you?
Go back, and finish reading the quote. See if you can get to the end without turning around again.
That's right...read it slowly, and as you read it your neck hairs will slowly start to standup again, your pulse will quicken, and you will swear that there is no one there. But I am you know.
And as you sleep, I shall watch you.
Sleeping! Trying to shut your eyes, and not scream.
Covered in the blankets that will muffle any sounds of my footsteps, and stifle the sounds of your scream.
Shadows shall play across the room as you hide tonight, remembering that I was here when you were reading this.
You will laugh, and say that there is no one there, but as you say that there will be a slight breeze, a scratching noise, and the flicker of a light, but don't worry. It will only be me, coming to visit, and take you with me tonight.”
Anthony T. Hincks
