While driving home from work, I thought of something I wanted to buy for my house.. Maybe a hut. I’m an outdoors person, so you usually see me in my backyard every weekend.
When I got home, I ordered the hut on Amazon and it said that the hut will be delivered in five days. Good for me. At least it didn’t take a whole month. For the rest of the day, I was wondering how different it would be to have a backyard hut.
Somewhere on a Saturday afternoon, my Alexa was glowing yellow.
Must be an early delivery, I thought. I opened my front door and found a red-colored envelope on my front porch. I opened it and this is what was written.
I’ve been stalking you for years and I decided to kill you. This is a death wish upon you. Beware, because I’m coming for you!
There was no signature.
I wasn’t sure if this was a joke or an actual death wish. It’s not easy to tell if something is a prank or if someone or something is really after you, so I brushed it off and at night, I went to sleep.
Since I explained earlier that I was an outdoors person, I will also tell you that I like taking walks. Everyday in the afternoon, I take a walk around my street everyday to relieve my stress. Sometimes I do it with friends or one of my parents. It’s a fun daily routine.
I was taking my daily walk as usual. Suddenly a black figure dashed right in front of me. This startled me so much that I backed away onto the road. I noticed a car was speeding towards me and I swear there was no one in the front seat. I almost ran to the side of the road because of how fast the car was driving.
I was too scared to even want to walk so I safely headed back home and stayed at the living room to watch Netflix. For some reason my TV glitched to the Local News Station while I was watching Stranger Things. On the headlines it said that someone by the name of Andrew was missing this morning. My heart sank into my stomach because I realized my best friend was missing.
During the news, they were giving interviews to one of Andrew’s parents. His parents said that they had no idea about Andrew’s disappearance.
I don’t know but something about that letter might’ve been connected to how I nearly got run over while walking and my best friend’s mysterious disappearance.
When the police were here, they questioned me about the letter. I explained everything that happened in the past hours. I also explained that this may also be linked to how I almost got run over by a car and my friend’s disappearance. The police said that they will try and investigate this to see if I was right. I said that was alright, and then they left my house.
For the rest of the day, I couldn’t shake the feeling of being watched.
Last night, the feeling of being watched became true. Through the blinds I could see two red eyes. That triggered my fear and paranoia and I shut my eyes as hard as I could. I then opened my eyes...the eyes were still staring at me. I tried to sleep but couldn’t because I was too scared. Soon enough, I fell asleep.
I woke up this morning to see a pair of muddy footprints on the side of my bed. The thing that freaked me out the most was that there wasn’t even a trail of footprints. There was just a single pair of them by my bed. All of my doors and windows were locked, so how did it just get into my house? I checked all my doors and windows and none of them looked broken into.
This is scary as hell, something just teleported into my house right by my bed in the middle of the night and was watching me while I was sleeping. Or at least that’s how I think it happened. What even is this thing anyway and why was it stalking me? What does it want from me? I just want this all to end. So many thoughts and questions went through my head that I thought my head was about to explode.
I went to the kitchen table to grab the letter. I then walked to the fireplace and threw the letter in. I just felt very uneasy with the letter around. I watched as the letter was burning into ashes. As the letter was burning, I heard scratching in my backyard. I was definitely not gonna check it out. I don’t know what came over me but I was walking through my backdoor and into my backyard as if some invisible force was making me do it.
I turned to face a creature that looked exactly like me! The creature looked like me but he was all black and had red eyes. It turned to face. My evil twin gave me a smile and then lunged at me. I blacked out.
I woke up to see a pitch-black sky. There weren't any stars in the sky and the moon wasn’t there. I saw trees in the distance. I realized that I was in a forest. As I stood up, I saw a figure dash through the trees of the forest. I got freaked out and ran the other direction. As I ran I heard a second set of footsteps running behind me. I turned behind me and there was no one there. I was starting to get really paranoid and started blindly running in random directions until I ran into something.
I stumble back on the ground as I rub my head. I look up to see a black figure. It was all black including its hair. I started to realize that this was my evil twin. He started to turn around towards me and stare with those red eyes. He gave me a loud, ear-piercing scream, then vanished in mid-air.
I looked behind me and noticed my evil twin standing firmly in my direction. He was smiling. I was going to die if I kept acting like a coward and ran away, so my only option was to try and fight him. I tried swallowing my fear and keeping a determined face.
I ran at my twin and he dodged me. He swung a fist at me and I dodged it. I caught him off guard and punched him in his cheek. My twin tried to punch me and one of his punches hit me on the cheek. He grabs a knife from his pocket and starts wildly swinging at me. I backed away as he was swinging. I made a grab for his hand that was holding the knife and held tight.
The fight lasted for what felt like three minutes before I kicked my twin in the shin. He screamed in pain and dropped the knife. As my twin was holding his shin, I grabbed the knife that was on the ground and stabbed him on the back since he was kneeling. White blood came out. I was stabbing him even more until he dropped to the floor and disappeared into a puff of black smoke. I sprinted towards my street, adrenaline still pumping through my veins. Somehow, I managed to sprint towards my house, to my front door, and collapse on the living room carpet. I passed out.
I woke up this morning to see myself on the living room carpet. I felt my head hurt a little. I started remembering what happened last night. I smiled a little and chuckled. I finally beat him. My evil twin. I felt proud about myself.
The rest of the day was normal. I went to the supermarket to buy food, and everything else was just a daily routine. I was also going to work more often too. Everything was going great and I haven’t seen my evil stalker since.
