which is just weird and slightly creepy

229. He’s nervous about asking you out

Dan: “Are you going to go talk to her, or are you just going to stare at her?” Phil asked as he looked at Dan from the opposite side of the table. “I don’t even know what I would say.” “Just go up there and say hi.” Dan sighed, stood up, and walked over to you where you were sitting a couple tables away. “Hi, um, I’m not really well-versed in these things, and I don’t want this to come off as creepy, but you’re really pretty and I was wondering if I could take you out to dinner or something?” Dan asked shyly as he rubbed the back of his neck. You laughed slightly, which Dan thought was directed at him. “Oh god, I’m sorry. This is really weird isn’t it? I’ll just–” He was getting ready to turn around and leave when you spoke up. “No, no, it’s fine! I was just laughing because this kind of stuff never happens to me. Nervous response, sorry. But sure, dinner sounds nice,” you smiled.

Phil: Phil took a deep breath. “I don’t know if I can do this,” he said to Dan as he held his phone in his hands. “You’ve known her for five years! Why are you so nervous?” Dan implored. “That’s exactly why I’m nervous. If I didn’t know her, then we could just go our separate ways if she said no.” “But what if she says yes?” Phil looked at him but didn’t say anything. “At least you’re not saying this in person,” Dan pointed out. “That’s true,” Phil mumbled as he began to type out a message. “How’s this? Hey! Would you be interested in getting dinner on Friday?” he asked Dan. Dan let out a little laugh as he was expecting something much more elaborate due to all of Phil’s worrying. “Sounds good,” Dan replied. “Ok cool.” Phil hit send, and not even two minutes later, you replied. Sure! Any special occasion? To which he replied, not really. i just wanted to take you out somewhere :)

The Light in the Window

I’m a very nocturnal person. I tend to stay up until very late just browsing the internet or playing games on Steam. Last night, at around 4 AM, something weird happened.

I own a desktop PC that is located underneath my desk. I also own a pair of speakers which are slightly old and don’t always work properly. Sometimes they stop working and I have to plug them out and plug them back in. It is a tedious an annoying task because you can’t see anything at night underneath my desk. Thus, I have a flashlight always handy with me.

Anyways, this happened last night and I did the usual routine. When I was done, I pointed my flashlight at the window (which is to the left of my desk, just a meter away) and started fidgeting with it. I am a nervous person and I was waiting for my speakers to start working again, so I was just playing with my flashlight turning it on and off. That’s when I noticed something.

Right in front of my building there was a light being turned on and off in a similar fashion from the apartment building across the street. I live in the second floor of a big apartment building, so I wasn’t really freaked out at first. Just in case, though, I stopped fidgeting with my flashlight. The light stopped. Seemed like the reflection from my flashlight was just playing tricks on me right? No. It flashes a couple times and stops. I do the same. Then it answers by mimicking the same flashes from before.

Let me just say, it’s 4 AM. This is pretty fucking weird and I want nothing to do with it. So, I closed the blinds and went to sleep. I wasn’t scared but I was a little freaked out that there was someone in front of me with such a weird schedule. The other weird thing is that the lights from that apartment are always turned off…

Anyways, here comes the real eerie part. I met up with some friends earlier and on my way back I decided to check out who lives there. So, I went to the base of the apartment building and looked at the names on the intercom. No name listed at all. Now it’s getting pretty late and I can see a light flashing from the same apartment trying to catch my attention. I don’t know what to do. Is it dangerous to respond? Someone help.
