I was working in two shifts as a security guard in a department store.
My shifts were always normal and nothing big happend for over 10 years of work until the clock demon appeared who…
Hmphf…. lets start this over..
One night i was walking the usual routine down the hallway.
„Keep the Doors shut and check everything, here are the keys and have a boring night Joe“ said my partner.
„Boring is always the best haha“ i replied.
He left and as soon as he shut the door, i heard a loud door shut from the end of the hall.
„Hey ?? Anybody still here? .. What the fuck was that man..“ i asked.
No answer. So i started to walk to the end of the hallway to secure from back to forth.
My footsteps were loud …
„Hey anybody here ? We are closing man what the fuck?“ i asked loud while taking out my taser and pointing at the door.
There were no lights on whatsoever, it didnt looked like anybody was inside.
I slowly pressed down the handle and pushed the door.. it was closed.
„Puuuhhh was i imaginating things now?“ I was sure that i saw this door shutting down.
Another door shut but this time it was in the middle of the hallway.
„HOLY FUCK.. MY HEART CANT TAKE THIS SHIT MAN“ i said nervously while pointing somewhere to the hallway.
The clock in the center hit midnight.
„WHOEVER THERE IS, DONT PLAY WITH ME OR I.. OR I…“ well if its a robber, what could i do with a small taser of twenty thousand volts i asked.
„Just come out man dont play here!“ I said while walking towards the mid hallway.
I grabbed slowly the door and pushed it…but it was locked again.
I started to wonder … was this some kind of prank? I didnt understood what was going on until the clock hit again..
„Wait what?? It hit midnight AGAIN?“ It was no prank anymore..
Than..“BAMMM“ another door shut but this time, something was standing there..
A black figure.
My heart was going to explode i thought.. I couldnt see its face.
„HEY STAND STILL! WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE ? ANSWER ME NOW“ i yelled at him.. it looked like a guy.. atleast he was wearing some black clothes i thought.
He didnt answered but instead, something at all doors appeared written with blood
„Do you look away? It will take you! Do you look to long, it will take a light“
„What in the world was going on.. HEY ANSWER ME NOW OR I SHOOT!“ As i came closer to it, but very nervously.
The problem was..as i looked at the doors again..and so i looked away, it dissapeared.
„What the hell… man i cant take this crap, lets get the fuck out of here“ as i started to run down to the exit.
As i run, every light blew off behind me and this made me only run faster.
„I DONT WANNA DIEEE“ as i run for my live.
I rammed open the exit ..well atleast i thought i could do so while seeing the last lights turning off. At the last light it stopped…
For a second i was looking at the exit and trying to open it and suddenly…all light were shining again..
„WHAT IS GOING ON HERE?! The lights are back? Didnt they all explode just now?! did someone poison my coffee or something?“ I asked myself.
I thought i was exhausted but… i felt normal…
The hallway looked normal.
All lights turned off..
I woke up in a hospital and cant remember what actually happend.
The police officer’s came to my bed and asked „Hello mr. Joe.. do you remember what happend in the department store last night? Your partner found you unconscious and coughing blood in the morning our“
„What ?? Ive got a headache and dont know anymore“
„Well than…youll have to see the video!“ they said.
They showed me the footage… i stood there and just started to scream, while the lights exploded and i appearently i lost consciousness due to shock.
„Joe we ask you one more time, Do you remember what happend there? And who was there?“
As i finally came to myself, i started to shake and i realised.. in the last moment ..that thing came up to me and screamed „YOU LOOKED AWAY“ while it smashed my head against the wall..
The video continued… and i saw myself covered in blood.
The police men said „What you saw there Joe, was a gas which was leaked through the ventilation system in order to poison you with your worst fear. This gas is highly toxic and causes very real hallucinations which cause cell death with every breath“
All this said … my question was „Than how is it possible, that the video recorded the exploding lights?“
The officers looked at each other and than replied
„Youre in bad condition joe.. take a sleep and watch the footage again“
They went out and i could hear them say something from the open window .. „Do you think we should let him go?“ … … „He isnt our concern anymore“
I rewatched the footage another time … but the only thing i saw … was myself, staring and smiling at the camera.
After i fell asleep, i wandered unconsciously between a blurred and a slowly sharpening screen. After a few seconds, i found myself back inside a pyramid in which nothing was there except a big door with three people on it. One of them looked like anubis with the animal head and he was holding a […]
After the sudden loss of energy i felt destroyed because i now knew what brought the problems of using blood magic. But yet i didnt knew the whole truth about it… As i was laying on the bloody grass and looking into the sky, i wondered what the village meant before they got killed by […]
As i saw the village from far away, i wondered how the villagers could turn their heads simultaneously at me and than block me completely from seing further. A couple hundred meters ahead was the village but as i came closer, the picture of the village became blur. I didnt thought much of it but […]
It was a normal night. Eyes closed and hoped to not dream something completely fucked up… I was standing in a long hallway and suddenly someone rushed through a door and yelled at me „WE GOTTA GO NOW, I HAVE TO LEAVE“. I didnt knew if she was meaning me because she looked at me […]
