It was a normal Friday night in Glasgow, Scotland. Clubs were clearly visible, the bright lights and the blaring noise dominating the night.

But with light, there was also darkness. There was one, almost abandoned, housing estate where nothing was there and everything was silent, almost as if a bubble had been wrapped around the derelict housing block. No one went there because it was so dark and eerie. Even during the day, a permanent grey cloud seemed to hang over it. Even the birds didn’t sing.

But tonight, someone was going there. A 12-year old boy called Jack, who had snuck out at 11 o’clock at night to go to this place with his friend, 13-year old Paddy.

The two boys climbed the rusted fence. Paddy had a flashlight, but due to low battery it was very dim. They followed the bush clearing to the housing estate, and it was pitch black. They emerged from the clearing to see a long row of blocky houses. In the eerie silence they walked towards an alleyway in between two of the houses. The flashlight wasn’t going to last much longer, and then they would have to entrust only the dim glow of a half moon to guide them. They went into the alleyway, Jack first. They found a dumpster, and looked at the ground to see a red substance had stained the ground, leaving a trail which led to behind the dumpster.

Jack checked it out, and immediately gasped with shock.
“AAARRGGGHH!!!”
Paddy, taken by surprise, ran out of they alleyway.
“Its a dead body, oh my god, what do we do?” Jack screamed, barely squeezing the words out through his state of sheer panic.
Sure enough, a dead body lay there. Headless, it lay there. It had been eviscerated, disemboweled, mangled and cut up in every possible way.
Jack looked towards Paddy, expecting some form of reaction. But Paddy wasn’t listening. He was already too concentrated in what was behind Jack.
“WATCH OUT!!!”

The knife cut into the side of Jack’s neck, and blood poured out, not the geyser that you see in the movies, but a steady pour down his neck, onto his shirt. Jack fell to the ground, motionless.
Paddy shone his dim light on the creature that had just killed his best friend. It had a black hooded shirt on, with long sleeves. On the shirt it had an upside down Illuminati pyramid symbol printed on it. Also printed were the words:

“Run, fight, but theres nothing you can do. You can be sure though, that Smiley is coming for you!”.
The creature also wore a pair of black jeans. But the most distinct feature, for certain, was it’s face. Blood red, as if someone had ripped the skin from it’s face, and slightly glowing blue eyes. The creature’s mouth was also fixed in a permanent yellow closed smile, which stretched almost up to it’s eyes.

But Paddy could only see it for a few seconds, and then his light completely ran out, shrouding the alley in complete darkness. His best friend’s body was dragged further in, and was swallowed by the darkness. Paddy covered his ears as the creature let out and ear-piercing fit of hysterical laughing.

Paddy dared to take a few steps into the darkness.

And then the creature took him.

With blinding speed, the creature rushed towards him, and stabbed Paddy in the neck, and held him up like a piece of meat. Paddy took one last gaze into the creature’s eyes. The creature once again laughed hysterically, but this time Paddy couldn’t cover his ears, and blood began draining from his ears as they succumbed to the pressure, and Paddy slowly and painfully succumbed all together.
The Smileyman had claimed it’s next victims. But they surely wouldn’t be the last.

    This was terrible. The dim torch was very ridiculous. The Illuminati sign had zero connection. And come on, that many words printed on a shirt? What you need is the fashion police. To be fair it started out well, alittle quirky and nice, however any semblance of a good pasta degenerated into dust.

    Hah, my thoughts exactly. I mean come on, the kid is apparently frozen in fear but has enough sense to read a friggin’ paragraph on the dude’s shirt? I don’t think so.

    Good description of smileyman, but I don’t get the illuminati reference and the text on the shirt. A bloodstained white vest, or shirtless with hundreds of scars, would have done better. Nice try anyway.

    Valkerie,

    Megan is the one who said torch, not the story. She meant flashlight because that’s the British word for it (maybe somewhere else too but I can’t pretend I care). And she was saying the dimness factor was the silly part (probably because it’s cliché or something). I highly doubt she was actually saying it was silly to have flashlights in general.

    But you saying, “Why torches?” is therefore a stupid question when meaning flashlight because, well, why would you NOT have one? Obviously, you thought there were literal torches though. So lol @ you.

    Eehh, I kinda liked it. I agree where others said it was a bit rushed, but I think the idea certainly has potential

    This…this was terrible. It read like it was written by an eleven year old. As a previous comment said, this is comically bad.

    when i read slimeyman i figured it to be a parody. 10 lock rocks if it was supposed to be a parody. 0 if this was supposed to pass as a good creepynoodleburger.

    It was pretty decent. A bit cliche at times and a bit unrealistic in terms of the shirt, but I’ve read worse. However, I think that the minor cliche details could be improved upon along with the possible addition to a creepy-er atmosphere. Not an alley in a derelict housing estate. It’s not a ghetto.

    Oh look out everybody! He found a DEAD BODY!!! Oh that’s not the wost of it.
    IT’S HEAD IS MISSING!!!
    Dun dun dunnn!!!!!

    Yeah this could’ve been alot better if there was an actuall story line and stuff about the charactors were explained. I mean, if your gonna put in charactors show their personality and how they act. This is pretty much two random little kids getting murdered. Not really that realistic.

    Strangely when I thought this story would have something to do with Glasgow Smiles considering its called The Smileyman and set in Glasgow. My mistake, I guess he had one. I don’t really think the opening matched with the rest of the story.
