Have you ever had the feeling that you were being watched from the darkness? Do you live out in the middle of nowhere, where even if everything was normal, everything would still be creepy as hell? Well, both of those go for me, and when I looked out my window one night, I regretted ever moving to this god forsaken brick shack on top of this wooded hill… All around my house, the trees are so thick that if you were to go out during the night, you would most likely be lost until sunrise. Or even worse, you would find one of the many bogs around my home, and you would get sucked to the bottom, never to be heard from again. After seeing this “thing” that I couldn’t ever formulate a name for (at the time), I realized what most likely laid underneath all of muck and leaves.

Things like this shouldn’t ever be put into this world… I’m a kid that likes fantasy, and would trade most of my real life for a good game of pokemon or yugioh any day. But this bit of fantasy? It made me want to end it all, and just get away forever.

One night, laying in bed, I happened to roll over to where I was facing the window.  Eyes still closed, I began to hear a scratching noise at my window. As I opened my eyes, I saw something that I could never erase from my memory. A face that was as white as snow, but it held no real features, except for a line where its mouth should be, a hollowed out spot where its nose should be, and 2 lines where its eyes should be. Those lines that it held as its eyes ripped open like lightning, revealing to me two blank white orbs. I ran from my room as soon as my feet hit the floor. I slept in the bathtub.

The next day, I told my mom that I wanted curtains. She took a few days to fulfill my request, so the bathtub became my bed. It always sucked whenever the tub was still wet from an early morning shower. I soon learned to wipe up the water before laying down. Once mom finally put my midnight black curtains up, I went back to sleep in my room.

MISTAKE.

I slept for one night in there, but when I heard a child’s laughter, I ran like hell. Nothing could make me go back to that room for at least a week. Finally, I worked up the courage to go back to my room after about 8 or 9 days. I slept with my back facing the window. About 3 weeks after re-entering my room since I had gotten over the creepy laughter incident, I heard a crash in my room in the middle of the night. I made the mistake of looking over towards the window where the crash came from.

The curtains had blown open thanks to an AC vent, and knocked an action figure off of a shelf. How the curtains had that much strength was beyond me, but I wasn’t concerned with the curtains as much as I was concerned with the thing behind the curtain.
That wretched face looked at me, as if staring straight into my soul with its blank eyes. I ran from my room once again, and when I got into the bathtub and closed the shower curtain, I heard a shriek, as if the laughing child from before was being stabbed. I slept in the bathtub all the way up until my 17th birthday party. The night after my party, I went to my room, and promptly clothes-pinned my curtains shut. Nothing was getting to me that night. Or so I thought…

Around 2:00 A.M. I awoke with a fright. My stereo started to blare at its maximum volume, and the thing that played on the stereo scared the life out of me.

At the end of a “My Chemical Romance” song off of their album “Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge” their is the sound of a girl’s laughter. That was all that played. Over. And Over. And Over. I took the CD out of the stereo, broke it clean in half, and began to look for my lighter so that I could burn the pieces… That’s when I noticed it.

The curtains.

Clothes-pins everywhere.

And the AC had just kicked on.

I did a sort of “crabwalk” to get back onto my bed, and at that time the curtains blew open so hard that the curtain rod fell.

On the other side of the window, he sat there. Looking into my eyes. I had finally had enough.

I ran up to the window and hit it with all that I had in me. It splintered the bottom portion of the split window, and when that happened, the creature raised its head to the top half of the window.

Its mouth opened. The teeth…. they were like razor blades.. except they were so jagged, as if they had been run across asphalt.. Its eyes rolled forward, and the piercing red irises of those eyes were going to rape my memory for the rest of eternity.

I yelled out as loud as possible “GET OUT OF MY LIFE!”

What happened then… I never expected it…The thing… It spoke to me in the soft voice of a small feminine child..

It said “All that I wanted to do was play with you sweetie. But I guess the deer will have to do.”

As it said that, it reached a bone white skeletal hand through the splintered window, making a small hole through the spider-webbed center of the glass.
It caressed my face and closed its mouth, giving me a faint smile.

“Goodbye brother, I’ll always be waiting” was the last thing it said before it dropped out of sight and the terror left the room.

My mom came in about 10 minutes later to find me crying on the floor, saying the same thing over and over: “Brother”

To this day, I have no idea why that thing didn’t take my life. Perhaps it loved me in some strange sadistic way. Perhaps it never meant to do harm to me, or even scare me… Maybe if I hadn’t been so afraid, I could have talked to the only thing in my life to ever call me “Brother”…

I still don’t understand two other things. One: how could it be looking into my window if I lived on the second floor of my house?… And number two: The girlfriend I have now has a little brother that is very feminine. He has the same voice as that thing. How could that be possible, seeing as I never knew him until a year after this happened?…
All of this still haunts me…

I want explanation, but there is only one way to truly understand it all. Come back and see me again, Brother Razor Mouth.

    It was pretty good, I think. But after the whole “My Chemical Romance,” thing, I found it a little harder to take seriously. 9/10.

    I’m a big My Chemical Romance fan. <3 The song that kept playing the girls' laughter was "You Know They Do To Guys Like Us In Prison" if you want to look it up. Most of their songs off of Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge are sinister…

    Meh, I’m fine. I seriously doubt it could be any more sinister than what I listen to. But at least thanks for clarifying the theme of the album. I guess it is a bit fitting, then.

    That was pretty chilling my friend!
    I live in an old survey, theres only about 5 people all together that live here, And me and the fellow kids here always have eerie feelings living in a such a secluded location.
    But all together a fantastic read!

    Mentioning things like Pokemon, action figures, and (sigh) My Chemical Romance made this not so scary. I had to stop towards the beginning. This was also a very generic story, “Oh nooooo something’s scaring me at night!” Try to use something more concrete and original next time

    I ask that you take this as constructive critisism. It really wasn’t that good, especially the end. The end was really rushed and kind of forced, like you didn’t know how to really end it but you wanted to give us a creepy unknown/all the pieces feel but it failed to deliver. I think your headed in the right direction though, try making something more creative next time though. 4/10.

    Why did the character sleep in the bathtub? His parents didn’t care? They didn’t have something like a sofa in the living room at least? Doesn’t really make sense.
    As for the story itself – it was pretty good, but the ending really disappointed me – kinda blurry and abrupt. I expected something like a dead deer in the backyard next morning at least. Plus, I don’t know how about other people, but if I saw shit like that peeking in through my window, I’d be long gone from the house, cuz no curtains can protect you – if you can’t see it, it doesn’t mean that it’s not there…

      He slept in the bathtub because it has no windows and was far-ish from a window.. I guess.

    The way you described the creature…reminded me of ‘The Crawler’ from Fable 3 for some reason…
    on another note, loved it to pieces.

    Honestly, it wasn’t creepy because you humanized the monster too much. The fact that the protagonist would let the thing sit within a foot of him, and allow it to caress his face is a tad over the top.

    The possibility of this happening is what makes a story all the more creepy.

    Though it wasn’t half bad, and worth a read.

    i liked this pasta. the antagonist was a little too humanoid, and the conflict a little old, and the ending was not as scary as i thought it would be, but it was still a good pasta. i honestly got the chills as i read it (and moved a little further away from my window…) 7/10

    This creeped me out so much in the beginning that I felt a constant shiver through my body, then imagining that creepy laughter and little girls voice talking just scared the daylights out of me… but this is a great story, I love the end even though it’s king of sad. I feel it brings a little more meaning to the type of beings so many stories are written about. Anyway, brilliant! 10/10 :)

    Good to see that some people are enjoying it, though I respect the opinions of those who aren’t. I understand that the ending was a little rushed, and the whole “brother” thing at the end was a little cheesy.
    As for the sofa thing, I based the layout of this house in the story off of the layout of my own home. I do live in the middle of the woods, and my room is on the second floor, annnndddd the only sofa is in the living room, which has 3 windows and a sliding glass door. O.e

    One night I thought I saw something in my window, and I freaked out, so I slept in the bathtub. I bought some curtains the next day. I soon told my friends about it, but they all told me I was just imagining things.
    A couple nights later I told myself that they were right, and decided to open the curtains to prove to myself that nothing was there. Evidently, two nights before, one of my close friends that only lives half a mile away from me had used my dad’s ladder, climbed up it to my window, and taped a Halloween mask of Michael Myers to the window..
    So, when I opened the curtains, I freaked out, punched the window, and in the process, did a fair amount of damage to my hand as well as the window… It was rather embarrassing, and my friends laughed at me for close to a year.

    I do not plan to write a sequel to this story unless it gets a lot of activity, but I plan to write a lot of other stories and post them as I see fit. So, keep posted if you want to read my future stories!

    Thanks,

    thanks to this pasta & its comments i discovered crab core. not sure if thats good or bad but personally i loved the pasta. it wasn’t as uncreative as people seem to think however the ending was definitely a bit rushed or forced. to explain some people asking why he let it “stroke his face” he was obviously in shock. i mean he just freaked out and smashed the window standing between him and the creature he thought would kill him.
