I was laying on the ground paralyzed in fear. I had no idea what it was, what was going on, or where I was. I began to think it was only a nightmare. But no, it was reality and it was coming closer and closer to me. That damn grin was all I could depict. I soon figured out what was happening to me.
It was a typical Saturday just hanging out with my friend, Kevin. We were at his house and we came up with an idea. He said, "Let's go to the neighbor's house; they just moved out!" I agreed because it seemed like a fun idea, we had nothing else better to do.
A week before we decided to go, the neighbors had moved out for unknown reasons. I mean their house was old, but I didn't think it was a problem. Their house was the darkest on the street. It even seemed... haunted. But that didn't affect us going, it seemed like fun since we've never been there and because it felt like an adventure...
As we walked to the door I swear I saw the curtain shift. I didn't tell Kevin because I thought it was my imagination. When we walked inside a foul odor hit us. "It smells like shit in here," Kevin said.
"Are you sure you want to go through with this?" I asked. He nodded. As we walked further, we heard a pretty creepy laugh... I don't know how to explain it. We continued to see what it was.
It began to get dark outside and the house was pretty dark. Kevin and I used our phones as flashlights. We ventured up to the attic. Pretty dumb huh? All of a sudden Kevin was dragged to the back of the attic. He screamed, "Go get!!!" I lost my friend, so many emotions went through my head. I jumped down from the attic and tried to run, but some force tripped me and I was knocked out.
I woke up. I didn't know where I was but all I saw was a smile. I could not get up as I was paralyzed in fear. I screamed, "WHO THE FUCK ARE YOU?!" All I heard was a laugh. Then a smile appeared, that's all I could see. It came closer and closer, slower and slower.
I felt my legs breaking. I screamed but nothing came out. Then my ribs, my arms, and then my neck. Next, I saw his damn face. I spat in it and it laughed. I passed out again.
I woke up in the hospital in a full body cast. My family was by my side. I asked about Kevin. My mom said, "He went missing, we are still looking for him." I broke out in tears.
The nurse came in and told my family visiting hours were over and they said they loved me and the nurse turned out the lights so I could sleep. As the lights went out I heard that damn laugh and saw that smile.
