The modern day haunting

My TV was showing static which was weird because I don’t have cable.

Alright, I’m just going to start by saying I’m more scared than I’ve ever been. Last year, what I saw with that boy, If you don’t remember what happened I’ll recap, he was a bad kid who didn’t listen to the warning that he was given. Inevitably, he was eaten by the great pumpkin. It will be Halloween in four weeks. Things are starting to feel wrong again, in a very different way this time. I’ve been avoiding everyone and everything; I haven’t carved a pumpkin or watched anything even remotely Halloween related. Every time I do, I think about what I saw. I watched a young boy get eaten by a pumpkin. 

It sounds crazy but if you’re reading this, you know it’s not. I’m sure you already know what happened last year if you’re reading this, so I’m just going to start talking about the things that are happening now. This morning when I looked in the mirror, I didn’t see anything. It was as though I wasn’t even there, that nothing was. It freaked me out, but I assumed it was just my brain playing tricks on me. I continued on with my day; I tried to get past it. Just as I was starting to, something else happened. 

I went to watch something on Netflix when my power went out. It freaked me out, but it very quickly came back on, but something was wrong. My TV was showing static which was weird because I don’t have cable. No matter what I did, it wouldn’t go away. I even unplugged it and it just kept showing the static. I was panicking; I didn’t know what to do so I just went upstairs. That’s when I saw it, this thing that’s been haunting me. It looked almost human; it had eyes and a nose and all the normal human things. Something was wrong with it though, its eyes were like an endless pit, and its mouth opened wider than any normal mouth could even get close to. 

I looked at it, and before it vanished, it made a noise almost like a scream but it was muted and deep. I couldn’t process what had happened, so I ran into my bedroom. I locked the door and shut the blinds. I sat in the dark for so long that by the time I was ready to fall asleep, the sun was coming out. I’m not sure what exactly I’m dealing with here; all I know is that I’m in danger. Nothing has happened yet today, and hopefully nothing does. I doubt I’ll be that lucky– I’ll keep you posted.
