You jolt awake to some noise off in the distance. You look at your red lettered clock: 3:21. You hear it noise again. Someone’s knocking on your door.

There’s no reason to be afraid, you remind yourself, but you can’t imagine any reason why
someone would be up this late. You quietly walk over to the door.

“Hello?”

Knock, Knock, Knock

“H-hello? Are you home?”

Knock, Knock, Knock

“I… Please be home… Hello?”

She mumbles something

“I need your help!”

Knock, Knock, Knock

You recognize her voice and look out the window. It’s your neighbor, she’s wearing her pajamas and some shining pendant around her neck. She sees you.

“Oh!”

She looks afraid at first, and then puts on a worried smile.

“I.. can I use your phone? I need to come in.”

Why can’t you use your phone?

“Mine is Brok-”

She pauses.

“…I think someone’s inside my house”

You pause for a moment to look at the fear on her face.

When you open the door it slowly dawns on you…

Whoever it is isn’t inside her house, he’s behind her, and what’s shining by her neck isn’t a pendant.

    Hello.

    This is, in actuality, a simple trick to duplicate.

      There was someone behind her holding a knife at her neck, forcing her to ask for help. Hope that helps :3

    Ohh, a knife? Right? But we would’ve been able to see a guy with a knife to her throat through the window, no?

    Not necessarily. Waking up at three in the morning puts you in a daze, it’s hard to tell what is what, if you’re not used to the daze.

  • The person formally known as “Noneya”

    This one was clever.

    What would you do if someone had a knife to your neighbors throat and wanted inside your house?

    It almost seems plausable.

    Its a gud story. A knife is the only solution that i can see for whats around her neck. All that i can’t work out is why she breaks off when she says her phone is broken

    ufm- The murderer probably gave her a script, and in that situation, I wouldnt blame her for messing up a bit.

    I love these “bad things happen to good people” creepypasta… They make you feel that much more helpless and terrified, because even a good deed can bite you in the ass. Or, yanno, torture and mutilate your ass. Whichever.

    The only thing is, if it IS a knife (and now, because of all the speculation, I’m not so sure) is that maybe it shouldn’t be “shining”, but “shiny” or something along those lines. Shining tends to give me the mental image of something emitting light, not just reflecting it.

    Hello.

    A body can walk.

    A body can breathe.

    A body can talk.

    The spark of life is not essential.

    The illusion is.

    Who do you trust?

    Good (in both concept and execution), a little freaky, but a little confusing as well. My own perception, originally, was that the ‘pendant’ was blood. Oops!
