Turn Out the Lights

Turn out the lights.

You'll be safer that way.

How bright is your computer as you read this? If it's too bright then...

Never mind. If I tell you, you'll panic.

Don't panic. He can smell fear.

It's October. The month where we prepare for a night of horror. But it's all pretend, isn't it? It's just a day for children to dress up as monsters to get sweets from around the neighbourhood.

But October is also the month when he awakens.

Halloween is merely a day humanity created to satisfy this... "demon". Once it has passed, he will rest until next October.

If you aren't preparing for the 31st of October, then the chances are that he is after you. He is not happy with you.

It's probably too late for you to do anything now. Just keep the lights off. Make your home as dark as possible. If the lights are on, he'll find you.

Remember to keep calm. If you hyperventilate or panic even the slightest bit, you're demise is certain.

Can you hear deep breaths? Is he searching for you? Or are you surrounded by silence?

Are there goosebumps on your arms? Are the hairs on the back of your neck standing?

You're panicking. Your heart is racing and your breath is quickening.

Can you feel a sudden chill running down your spine? Against your skin? Are you feeling the urge to shudder?

He is here.

No. He is there. With you. But he can't see you.

Look quickly! Do you see a silhouette which looks oddly out of place? Is it moving?

...It's him.

He has come for you.

It's too late for you to be saved now. He knows you're there. But he isn't attacking. Why not? Because he is waiting. He has disappeared from your sight, but he hasn't left.

You're wondering who I am telling you all this, aren't you?

You made a mistake in reading this.

You turned off the lights.

Thank you for that.

Can you hear the hoarse breaths behind you? Do you feel my breathing against your neck?

I'm waiting for you to turn around.

Navni: Awesome and amazing

B.Noble: Awesome concept and commentary on modern commercialism and it’s dark side, really well executed. The main character’s dialogue feels a little stilted a times, and his reactions occasionally seem a little melodramatic, but other than that a great read.

bolajifati: Great storyline

Samantha: This book is amazing though I would have been happier if it wasn't so short and get more drama from Luke n his twin. Also see how their blend over as years go by with more fiction. It a very NYC mafia short story that lives u with a lot of unanswered questions.
