The Dark Figure

The Dark Figure There was this kid called Jack. Jack was casually walking down the street with his family, going to get some groceries, when Jack noticed a dark silhoutte with a black hat, but he didn’t think much of it. After that, he would notice that silhoutte several times. He would mostly see that figure when he was walking to school. But some weeks later, the figure wasn’t there disappeared and Jack was confused. He didn’t tell his parents about this at all, in fact, he didn’t tell anyone because he didn’t think it was important. Some months later, he saw that figure again. He had forgotten about that figure back by then, but something strange happened… He had a dream where the man was sitting in his room, looking at him. He was terrified, but it was most likely sleep paralysis. Jack finally remembered that man and he confessed to his parents and his brother. Jack’s family didn’t really think anything of it and thought it was just some coincidence. One week later, Jack went for a walk and the man was following him, but he didn’t know realise. It was late at night, so he was going home. He had some work to do, so he wanted to go to his house quickly fast. He knew that something was up so he looked around, but the man was gone,. As once Jack decided to turned around, he saw the man in front of him, looking at him with a big smile. Jack was horrified, but he couldn’t move, he couldn’t say anything. He opened his mouth to call for help but nothing came out of his mouth. Jack blinked and the man was gone. Jack ran home and soon moved out. He has never saw seen that man since, but the man is still traumatizing people to this day, like he did with Jack….
