When I wake up I’m back at Jeff’s house. I think to myself 𝓌𝒶𝓈 𝒾𝓉 𝒶𝓁𝓁 𝒶 𝒷𝒶𝒹 𝒹𝓇𝑒𝒶𝓂. I look at myself in the mirror. It wasn’t a bad dream. I had bruises and cuts all over me. Jeff comes in. He sits on my bed with his knife. But this time he puts it away. “Sarah are you ok?” He asks “I’m not sure” i say He looks at me with that look you get when someone is giving you sympathy. He takes out his knife and puts it on my neck. He applies very little pressure right away. He never does that. I close my eyes in fear of being hurt. I feel the cold metal on my skin and it makes me shiver. He laughs. He thinks I’m pathetic. I open my eyes to see his face darker than it has ever been. “Jeff stop!” I say firmly He doesn’t listen. He continues to smile with delight of me being in fear. He had his fun and removed the knife from my throat. “You scared me Jeff” I say “I know. Your fear is like fuel to my fire” he says before getting up and leaving. I hear yelling out in the hall. Slender Man is back. I put my ear to the door and listen. “Slender she needs to get back out in the world. “ Jeff says “No. She needs to stay here. She is safer here than out there. Anyways your in love with her. Why would you want to put her back in the terrible world?” Slender man asks. Jeff doesn’t respond “I thought as much” Slender Man says. The door starts to open. I fall on the floor. Slender Man towers over me. He picks me up by my arm. He studies me again like the first time we met. He puts me back down. Jeff comes in. He holds me close to him. Slender Man slams the front door. He left. “Your Sade now Sarah. He shouldn’t come back for you.” Jeff says. I’m collapse on the floor and cry. I’m never safe. He will come back. I know he will. “Jeff he will come back. No doubt about it. He wants me to stay here. I can’t even go outside. Why can’t I leave?” I ask “I don’t know Sarah, he doesn’t want you to leave. I can’t do anything. He’ll kill me if I let you free and then kill you for escaping his clutches.” Jeff replies. “I can’t just live inside a house for the rest of my life” I say “I know” he says He picks me up and sets me on my bed and leaves. I fall asleep. Hi everyone! Thank you for reading. Please leave a comment on how you like the story or if you have any ideas on what you would like to happen next.
