THIS HAS BEEN OCCURRING FOR ALMOST A YEAR, BUT WE HAVE BEEN HANDLING IT FROM OUR OWN POCKETS. HOWEVER, WITH LITERALLY NO DONATIONS FOR THE PAST 2+ YEARS IT HAS DEPLETED THE BUDGET IN SHORT ORDER WITH THE INCREASE IN ACTIVITY ON THE SITE IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS. OUR CPU USAGE HAS BECOME TOO HIGH TO REMAIN ON A REASONABLE COSTING PLAN THAT WE COULD MAINTAIN.

Usually every second friday of the month, me and my best buddy Adrian hang out and watch a movie or two and play some xbox with several beers in between and generally have a great time… guys night right!.

Well I hadn’t seen my friend in 3 weeks and I had been texting him for the past week or so and sure enough had no response so like any good friend I decided to venture to his house and find out what was going on, had he fallen out with me? was he ok? to be honest…I wish I hadn’t of found out.

I arrive at his home just after 8pm, typical suburban house, fairly large with a decent sized garage and a large back garden…he lives with his mom, dad and little sister, he had always got along with his little sister, she is only a few years younger than us making her 23 and I had always found her to be a good laugh! and their parents were great! why do such bad things happen to genuinely good people? I've yet to find an answer to this that doesn't insult my intelligence.

I knock at the front door and within a minute or two, it swings wide open and there is Adrian stood at the door looking, quite honestly, awful! he is a good looking chap, tall blond hair blue eyes well built and usually always smiling but he look grim to say the least. His skin was drained of his usual vibrant colour, his hair was a mess looking quite greasy and he looked as though he had not slept in days…alarm bells were ringing.

“Dude what the hell?” is my opening line of choice as I scanned him up and down still taking in his exhausted state. He stared at me his eyes slightly glazed over, he tried to speak but it sounded as though he choked up, I thought he would cry at any moment and then he leaned in and hugged me tightly…now this dude is not the emotional type at all with his friends he usually has that whole macho thing going on…so now I KNOW something is up.

“Im so sorry I haven't been in touch” he said to me releasing me from the bear hug and regaining his composure, “Whats going on man” I asked calmly resting a hand on his shoulder hoping he would confide in me like he usually does. “Dude…” he said as quiet as a whisper, he turned around to face back into the house, I could tell he was peering towards the staircase…“there is something in my house” his voice choked out to me as his eyes locked onto mine, I could see fear in his eyes and hear it in his voice.

“Something?” I asked feeling obviously confused as “something” is quite vague by any standards. “Where are your folks?” I asked as it had only just occured to me that their big ass camper van wasnt in the drive way and they only had the one car, their mom Sharon was a stay at home type and Alan their dad…come to think of it I had no idea what Alan did for a living but I know he was always coming back and forth to the house…Adrian said he was into imports mostly but id never bothered to pursue that answer any further.

Adrian stepped outside the house onto the porch closing the front door slightly behind him, “umm they're visiting my cousins up north and wont be back for another week” Adrian answered brushing his hair out of his face with his hand…and thats when I noticed several scratches across his right hand! “man what the hell did you get into a fight with a pack of cats or something??” I said startled at how torn up his hand was, I grabbed his hand and quickly examined it wow it looked painful.

“Oh man I wish” he said to me peering around the street, I let go of his hand then asked “Where is Stacey dude?” Stacey is his sister and usually whenever she heard me at the front door she would always come and say hello so I assumed she was out. “Umm…shes in the living room” Adrian said in yet again a whisper like voice…this was all becoming strange now so I decided to try and get to the bottom of this situation.

“Oh ok then…so whats this something in your house?” I asked trying to peek through the front door checking the place over with the minimal view I had. Adrian rubbed his face with both hands closing his eyes “oh god!” he cried out reopening his eyes staring at me, his eyes were even more glazed over now “Dude…I dont know what it is!” he said to me choking out his words…I wasnt sure how to respond to that but I said “what the fuck? are you on crank or something?” I said laughing a bit trying to lighten up the mood but Adrian just stared at me shaking his head slowly taking inhaling deep breaths trying to control his composure.

“Dude you need to explain now im genuinely worried here” I said trying to drill those words into his head hoping he would just spill the beans already! “About a week ago, I was getting ready for work when I noticed Stacey looked very tired and not herself, she seemed distant and in deep thought” Adrian said regaining his voice after nearly breaking down a few moments earlier, I gestured to his porch for us to sit down whilst he explained, he complied and we sat as he continued.

“For the next few days she hadnt said a word to me, I said I was going to call mom and dad and tell them but Stacey reacted violently and said if I did that she would burn the house down!” Adrian said flailing his hands out in front of him… “Jesus” I said thinking that was so very unlike Stacey, she is a really friendly girl and that sounded completely out of character for her! “Well..a few nights ago…” Adrian continued only his voice had taken a dramatic change in tone, I heard the dread in his voice as he moved onto this very disturbing chapter.

“A few nights ago, I woke up suddenly in my bed because I could hear mumbling noises…I looked around my room seeing nothing and so I got out of bed to inspect further…the closer I got to Staceys room…the louder it became” Adrian pulled his knees into his chest resting his chin on his knees I watched him as he did so, he closed his eyes and continued “I put my ear to Staceys bedroom door and knew the sound was definitely in there…I quietly pushed the door open…peering around the door” Adrian continued his voice cracking up…I was half expecting him to say Stacey and her boyfriend were on the good foot doing the bad thing but I kept that one to myself…and im so glad I did.

Adrian turned towards me, a glint of a tear made its way down his face “there was something in her room…hunched over her” now that one fucking got to me…I felt my eyes widen “woah” i gasped as I turned to face the other side of the road processing what he just said to me…“dude” Adrian said grabbing my shoulder tightly, I turned immediately because of the intensity of his grip “it wasnt human”. Holy. Shit.

I glared at Adrian waiting for him to tell me he was joking, that this was the best practical joke ever and that I was a stupid ass for falling for his dramatics…there was no joking. I knew adrian was telling the truth, the look of fear and dread on his face was true…I was genuinely shocked but I pushed for Adrian to continue.

“The door was half open…and…this…thing was lurched over her…oh man it was a fucking awful sight to see…it..it looked like a tall…very skinny woman…she was so pale…and…her arms and legs were so long…her hair was pitch black and it looked like she wore rags…It looked human but it wasnt…it couldnt of been…oh my god the noises it was making!” Adrian threw his head into his hands…shit….this story was freaking me the fuck out and I cant begin to imagine how Adrian felt let alone Stacey.

“Dude…the worst fucking part is…Stacey was awake!…I could see her eyes…she was staring straight up at the ceiling…she wouldn’t look at it…she was making the mumbling noises…she was fucking terrified!…oh my god this thing…its…face…its jaw swung loose…its eyes were rolled back into its narrow long skull it sounded as though it was letting out low groans with high end wheezing noises!” I had horrible visions of that encounter and I was getting chills up and down my spine…“what the fuck man, what the hell is it? how did it get in the house??” I grabbed him by the shoulder almost demanding an answer and then I realised…Stacey was alone in the house! “Dude your sister! we have got to get in there! we are sat here and shes in there alone!” I tried to scramble to my feet when Adrian pulled me down suddenly “NO!” he shouted at me grabbed my t-shirt his face looking fearful “You cant go in…it wont let us have anyone else in the house!” Adrian whispered to me peering back into the house through the slight crack of the front door.

“It wont let you?” I said looking around the house…“this thing talks?” I asked Adrian as he tried to stop his hands from shaking pulling his knees into his chest again “you have to hear the rest” he mumbled to me. “this…this thing one of its abnormally long thing arms was latched onto the head post whilst the other was clamped down on the bed…it had one of its long thin legs placed on the floor and the other in a kneeling position on the bed…oh my god it wouldn’t stop making those fucking noises! I stood there! I just stood there for hours it must of been staring at this messed up situation…and then all of a sudden…within a blink of an eye…it fucking vanished just before the dawn!” Adrian’s voice was choking out badly I could not believe how scared he was!.

“As soon as it disappeared I ran to Stacey and hugged her tightly she began crying loudly burying his face into my chest crushing me with her arms begging me not to leave her alone” I didnt know what to say, I had no idea what the hell was going on! was this a ghost? a fucking demon? or…something else?.

“Man it only got worse after the first night” Adrian sighed wiping the tears from his eyes as he breathed in deeply preparing himself for the next chapter.

“For the past week…me and Stacey…we’ve been seeing it around the house…fuck man its horrific…it never speaks…but we never directly look at it…sometimes its at the top of the stairs peering down at us through its pearly white eyes…other times its in the living room…the kitchen…always in a corner of a room…just fucking staring…and at night…it terrorises Stacey…fucking looming over her making those damn fucked up noises…Stacey’s lost so much weight…she wont speak…anytime we try to use our cell phones or the house phone…its like something starts scratching us erratically until we drop our phones!” and that would explain Adrian’s hands, jeez they were a bad sight to see.

“The scratching…its like…its coming out of thin air…the fucking thing we see never attacks us it just watches us and groans with those high end gargles…oh my god its so fucking messed up…I don’t know what to do!” Adrian cried out letting out tears of desperation…fear. I sat there rattling my brains trying to think of something…anything to help Adrian and Stacey…then it hit me…something I wasn’t sure would work but it was worth a shot. “Ill get a priest to come here Adrian! You know like in movies where a house is possessed or something and a priest comes and cleanses the house?” Adrian glanced towards me, I saw a Glimmer of hope in his eyes “you think that would help?” he asked me sounding curious to this possible and only solution I could think of. “Yeah man maybe? Its late now but first thing tomorrow Ill be around here with a priest from that church around the corner from mine, the priest is always there obviously!” I said standing to me feet helping Adrian up, he dusted off his pants “Thanks for trying to help man” he said to me looking as exhausted as ever… “dude im your best pal!” I smiled at him…but then something occurred to me…”Adrian you said this…thing doesn’t let you get in contact with anyone outside the house?” he nodded slowly…then he realised the point I was making…me…it allowed me to speak to Adrian. As soon as that dawning realisation hit the both of us the front door creaked open slowly…every inch the doorway became wider and wider my heart dropped waiting to see who was opening the door.

Stacey. Stacey was stood at the door staring at Adrian, oh man she had lost some serious weight, im talking at least 2 stone…she was 5”4 and so she must of weighed around 7 stone now! And then I noticed one of her arms at her side…her fingers were making a gesturing motion to Adrian…a motion to come back in.

Adrian turned to me “Man you have to leave, now” I didn’t like where this was going but I said “ok man I promise Ill be back tomorrow” I turned back towards Stacey who hadn’t looked at me once and said “bye Stacey” she ignored me completely but as I turned to walk from the house something caught my attention…the stairs. The top of the stairs. Oh. My. Fucking. God. At the top of the stairs…it was there…it must have been over 6”5 its long arms and hands looked frightening…its jaw was hanging low and its eyes were rolled back into the skulls…its long black hair wisped around its menacing narrow pale face but it wasn’t making any noises but I sure as I am breathing it was staring at me…it moved from side to side slowly as it glared at me.

I turned back to Adrian who knew I had seen it…I backed away from the house slowly…backing over the pathway…and over the front lawn as Adrian and Stacey went back inside and the door slammed shut loudly…what the hell was it? What the hell was going on? The fact Adrian had been allowed to contact me made me feel uneasy…was I now apart of the game? Damn it I didn’t have Adrian’s parents numbers otherwise they would come back straight away! I walked back to my house slowly rethinking everything Adrian had told me…oh its damn face kept coming into my mind…it truly frightened me to the point where I didn’t want to return to that house but…I had to! For the sake of my best friend and his sister! Id get that priest to that house and sort this god awful situation.
