I just remembered another “glitch in the matrix” thing that happened in my life.
If you don’t read sixpenceee’s blog, and you like horror/creepy stuff, check her out. She posts stuff like this and you can find a lot of these stories tagged under her name.
Anyways, I was away at a weekend retreat with my youth group. We were in the mountains of Tennessee at some Methodist resort with cabins and everything. On the last night, we all split into teams and decided to okay capture the flag.
Now before we did this, I had an uneasy feeling. It was very dark outside, and there were no street lights. I hoped someone wouldn’t get hurt, because the grass was slick from rain and the whole time I felt like I was being watched.
A guy came up to me who was suddenly very scared. I asked him what was wrong. “I just saw Slenderman,” he said.
I narrowed my gaze. “Slenderman? What’s that?”
He tried to explain that it was a myth about a creepy, tall, lanky man who would lure people to their death (this was before the whole video game craze happened, so I had no idea who that thing was). I laughed nervously and tried to say he was probably just seeing things.
The game began, but shortly after, disaster struck. The same guy who had talked to me was running towards another guy, when suddenly, the other guy slips on the grass, seems to stop in mid air, and then runs into nothing. He started screaming in pain. I was the closest person (besides the guy who saw Slenderman) to see this, and I was completely baffled. He had broken his leg, and I could see the bone wanting to poke out of the skin.
So there’s the story. I don’t tell many people, but even as I’m typing, I hear weird noises in the house and feel like I’m being watched in my room. Even that night of the event, I randomly threw up for no reason (I wasn’t sick before and felt fine before and after - I’m not squeamish with events like that). It was weird.
Hope this makes it on sixpenceee’s blog, or gets some attention. I hope I’ve contributed to this research or experience in some way.
