I gasped and sat bolt upright. Slender was sitting in the chair across from me, legs crossed and his head propped up on his hand. He straightened up and looked at me curiously. I felt cool sweat dripping down my forehead and wiped it off.
"You only just fell asleep a moment ago." He said simply.
I looked at him. He had taken off his pitch black suit coat now. His crimson tie was loosened and the first button of his crisp, white dress shirt was undone, the sleeves folded up to his elbows.
I blinked and stared at him. More accurately, his mouth. I hadn't noticed before, but there was a color change where his nose and mouth had appeared. The pale, creamy skin seemed thin, almost translucent. Beneath it, ruddy light brown skin was just barely visible. I leaned forward and squinted at him curiously, my eyes scanning the strange skin growth carefully. It was thinnest at his mouth, and allowed his lips to poke through, then grew a bit thicker up where his nose had appeared, then finally retur

I yawned and folded my arms against me as I walked. The park began to fade into view, drenched in a sleepy layer of fog. I grumbled. The fog just made everything creepier, I didn't see why it was necessary. Well, then again... I didn't see why anything about Slender was necessary. I yawned again and stretched my arms up over my head, pausing as I met the edge of the trees. I grumbled to myself.
"I should be in bed right now."
A gentle breeze slipped over me and my vision blurred. I saw the trees creak and moan and reach out their branches towards me, and Slender appeared, striding quietly out of the darkness. I squinted. Something was different. I couldn't quite tell what it was, but there was something different. I scanned him carefully. Pale as hell? Yep. Roughly six foot? Indeed. Tentacles writhing about? Check. I stepped toward him gingerly, waving away an annoying gnat and squinting harder. What was it about him?
It wasn't until I was standing right in front of him and staring str

A black tendril slithered towards my ankle out of the fog. I glanced down and smashed my foot into the ground next to it, causing the length of flesh to flinch back to a safe distance.
"None of your games, fucker. Tell me what the hell you're up to. Cause I've had enough."
There was a moment of silence, then quiet, slow footsteps echoed from the fog, and Slender walked up to me, he stood closer to seven feet tall now that he was right in front of me, his entire being was tensed. He looked frustrated and somehow hurt.
"You're angry." He said simply.
"Damn right I'm angry! You've made my mom lose her mind, my dad's getting sick, I don't even know what the hell you did to Michael or what the fuck happened to James, and I sure as hell am not planning on letting you get to Madeline and Bronte again!"
He stood and listened to my rant in silence. When I had finished he put his pale hands in his pockets as if thinking over what I had said. After some time he spoke again.
"What would you do?"

The road was dim and empty where my mom pulled off. She put the car in park and turned off the headlights, turning to face me with a frustrated look on her face.
"Okay, tell me what the hell is going on."
I squeaked at her harsh gaze in the evening darkness.
"Don't be a fucking smart ass. You know everything don't you. The sickness, the nightmares, what happened to James. You know all of it."
The pain in her voice was screechy and ear-shattering like an old record, I could feel it gradually transitioning into anger. I reached behind me and felt for the door handle nervously. What was I supposed to say?! Was I supposed to lie? Deny it all? Or should I tell her the truth? Could she even handle it? Would she believe me? I was just desperate to get out of this situation, I was scared out of my skin.
"I-I know... the whole things with James was a bit of shock, mom..." I tried to sound sympathetic in an effort to make her calm down. It didn't work. She slammed her fist into the ce
Ack, sorry dearies (if any of you are still reading this, ahaha... ) I've been so ridiculously busy it isn't even funny. College, man. Cooollleege. Anyways, see if this gets any comments, and if people are still reading, it shall continue! I have much more planned for this story, don't you worry. Also, yes I know this one is ridiculously short, just I didn't want to cram the whole next scene into it. (especially if I don't know ya'll are still reading.)

(Even if I discontinue this story here on dA, odds are I'll continue it on fanfiction, so megh. If you're that interested in it.)
