She looked up at me, a look of confusion in her eyes.
“Why…..why are you here?I don’t--”
I tried to explain. About me. Who I was. What I had been doing. That I had been…..watching her.
I didn’t explain about Slender, my master, or that I was a proxy. But I told her the better part of the truth.
I told her that she was in danger.
Still, she had questions. Her beautiful eyes bored into mine once again.
“But….but why? I don’t understand...I’m..I’m not the type of person that..gets followed by people... I…”
He sighed again, little puffs of vapour rising into the suddenly cold air of my bedroom.
“Listen….(y/n)...it’s kind of hard to understand..but...I- God..”
“Just-God, (y/n).. I-I think I love you.”
And then he kissed me.
He kissed me, and I suddenly became aware of everything. How cold my room was, and how warm his skin was. His brown eyes so close to mine that I could almost count the flecks of gold around his irises.
“I-I have to go….”
She buried her face into my chest, leaving smudges of mascara shaped like butterflies on my hoodie.
“Go. Please. Just-just go.”
