Ashley walks down the hall of school, and in the corner of her eye she sees a shadow run the opposite direction. She jumps a bit from the random shadow. “What was that?” she questioned as she continued her way down the hall. Off she goes to her favorite class! “Hm what should i read today, horror? Or fantasy?” she chuckles to herself of course she knew her answer! “Fantasy of course”
She smiles as she sits down at her spot greeting her english teacher “good morning Miss Woods!” she smiles happily. Miss woods chuckles “now good morning Ashley, as happy as ever huh? And you seemed a couple minutes later than usual. Is everything alright?” She looks at her a bit worried. “Oh im well Miss Woods, I just swore I saw something in the hall, and I looked and nothing was there, gave me a little spook is all!” she smiles. Miss woods chuckles “oooh maybe it was a creature of a night life” miss woods knew about the past of this world. She also enjoys fantasy as well, so she finds that type of humor quite funny.
As kids began to run into class, right before the bell rang, then class started. It is now hours later, she had just finished her last class of the day “woohoo! I lived through another day!” she giggles to herself, and starts to make her way home.
It's quite hard to tell if she sees something if it's really there or not, because most often. She gets the feeling she's being watched, it's very uncomfortable. But she just ends up rubbing it off. She gets to her street, and again in the corner of her eye an even bigger shadow at least two times the size of the other one, and she sees it from inside her house! She quietly walks to her front door and swings it open. To once again find nothing. Nothing at all as she walks around looking for anything. “ what is happening to me”
The next day seemed quite normal, nothing seemed crazy. She was still surprised by what she saw the day before “Should i tell mom?” she begins to question herself and what she's seeing, or how she can sometimes feel like she's being watched. Maybe it's all just in her head? But how could she know? “Next i see something, im following it, i don't care what i'm doing i need to figure all of this out” she says to herself in art class her 5th hour class. “I can't take this, i can not question myself now, i must just figure it out for myself”
After school she sits at home reading, like normal. As she is also on the side, she begins to just rant on paper. This time it's just too quiet for comfort, she gets the feeling to look around, as she does so she sees something. Then she hides behind a wall but is still looking around the doorframe to see if it is still there, it's slowly becoming less visible, so she just goes with her gut and follows it closely. Making sure she doesn't get seen she has to stay distant anyway from it so she can still see it but it doesn't see her.
She watches it as it literally looks like someone walking around. But weirdly it looks like it's frantically trying to search for someone. Or as if they are lost, she chuckles a bit. Not knowing or understanding what it's doing. It very quickly turns its head back. She jumps back to hide herself from its sight “oh my goodness that was so close” she breathes heavily and talks quietly to herself.
At this point she has gotten deep in the woods, of course somewhere she has no idea about, very far from home. “Well, the no going back choice, happened a long time ago” she whispers to herself again, and continues to carefully follow it.
She ends up standing right in front of a huge boulder with leaves covering it, she looks up and down very confused as for this is where the shadow went “where am i” she looks around. “ that “thing” walked straight into this thing, it's not like there's anything here, it's just a big rock” she kicks it a little aggressive “ah! That kinda pisses me off” she grinds her teeth, looking around in the woods, having clearly no idea of where she was “crap, now i gotta make a place to sleep here its getting dark, and no way i'm gonna get lost in the forest again” she begins to find tree branches and makes a shelter “ ah this was all me “ i should find out for myself” she mocked herself, as she started to drift off.
She wakes up to the feeling of eyes being on her, as she jumps out of her poorly made shelter, soaking wet “ Who are you? I can hear you!” she yells a bit shaking, as she quiets down “ gosh dang it, it was raining all night, i hated that, i got like no sleep” she starts to rub her eyes as she sees the figure of a person standing almost right in front of her, and she jumps back.
