You’re in your room late at night. You’ve been on the computer for a while now, and it’s almost time to get some sleep. The light behind you is still blazing, cutting a swath through the oppressive darkness of whatever ridiculous hour of the morning it is. In a sleep-deprived haze, you amble over to the light switch and flick it off, and instantly realize you screwed up. Your headphones are lying on the floor, and without the light to see them you’ll probably step on and crush them. Resolving to turn the light back on so you can grab them, you spend less than a second in near-perfect darkness as this goes through your mind. Then you flick the light back on.

You’re not in your room, anymore. It’s as if fifty years of disrepair have ravaged your once-loved living space. You’re also surrounded. You can’t really see them, mostly just their shadows are visible as they crouch on all fours all around you. The only features you can make out are hundreds of mouths of jagged, grinning teeth, and a set of glowing, red eyes to go with each twisted smile. You almost have time to scream. Almost.

    Pretty creepy, especially considering I was about to turn off the light and go to sleep myself…

      Same here. And the whole “headphones on the floor,” thing, I do that every night!

    Hmm. Intriguing concept. However, this is one of those pastas that’s only really creepy/terrifying if it happened to you. Reading it, I really didn’t find it scary at all.

    I agree with “Z” (The first comment, in case you couldn’t figure that out.). Not really scary per se, but certainly an interesting idea. I did like the ending, though.

    This creepypasta was alright, although I felt it wasn’t really written as good as it could have been.
    Delicious pasta none the less.

    I’m sorry, but this is dreadful. Where’s the explanation to it all? Just a random ending thrown in.

  • http://www.creepypasta.com WHO WAS PHONE?

    Yahweh & Aye, I think it’s not just a ‘random ending’, the point is that everything changed so completely and horribly in… well, less than a second. The idea of such a thing happening to you is what brings the creepy.

    I like it, it has more of a classic creepy taste.

    You could’ve made the overall story better, but the ending was fantastic. Try again, you’ll probably make a really good one.

    I liked it. It’s creepy if you’re in the same situation they were in…(I am). Kinda paranoid about the light switch now….

    I’m always biased against second person pastas.
    They just seem too cheesy.
    Cheesy pasta.
