I don't know where they hell to start. Uh, I guess noon is as good as any. Today(yesterday I guess now) I decided that it was time to do something about Fred and his insane militia. Around noon I went over to the old printing plant to check what it was like. Same amount of guards though I did see some new outfits out there. I started to put my plan into motion.
I snuck down the hill and quickly hid behind a large rock by the old parking lot. I waited there for three or so minutes to insure no proxy saw me and was waiting for me to pop my head out. When nothing happened I pulled out my phone and stuck it out using its camera to look around the rock. It wasn't long before I saw what I was looking for a tall man wearing a black duster, cowboy hat, and a white and gold mask that looked like something a lucha libre wrestler's. The reason I was looking for him was I noticed on the hill that he had a limp. I waited patently behind that rock for him to head my way while also praying that no other proxies would come instead. Finally my wish was grant. I pulled my phone back when he started to head my way and held my breath. Then he was close enough. I rolled out to the side, taking him by surprise, and stabbed the back of his bad knee with a knife I brought with me. He collapsed on to the ground and let out a scream but I stuffed a piece of cloth in his mouth before another guard on patrol could hear him. I ended the fight quickly and took his clothes and mask before putting the body behind rock. I looked around the rock and silently gave my thanks that the proxies seemed to all be busy on the other side and dashed up the hill with my new disguise. It was time 1:21 and I did the next part of my plan. I called the police. I took pHIL's advice and said that they would stocking illegal drugs as well as adding that they were a gang that had recently committed murders against anyone that neared their building.
It was 1:37 when the cops arrived. There were three cars and seven cops in total all packing heated. The moment that the guards spotted them they pulled out their melee weapons (seriously still?!) and rushed the cops. The police wasted no time shooting their assailants but they still moved despite being fill with fucking bullets, but whatever them moving didn't keep them moving long with most falling dead seconds after being hit by a wall of additional bullets. Still some made it to the police killing two of them. By the end of the assault on the hill there were nine bodies on the ground; two police and seven proxies. I saw the remaining police slowly head down the hill after the leader gave them the signal. They were about to raid the building when He appeared. I don't thing the police even saw Him until He pierced there hearts with his tendrils. In a mere second four cops were on the ground dead with the remaining one standing there in fear unable to move. The Slender Man walked up towards him and simply stared at him until the cop slumped to the ground devoid of life then He was gone. I stayed in my hiding place paralyzed with fear that He would appear by me any moment. After a long time I finally put on my my disguise and went down the hill. The time was 1:49.
No additional proxies ventured outside the building during the time I was hiding from the Slender Man which surprised me leading me to hope most died, but as I ducked beside a door that was opened when backups arrived to attack the police. I could here several voices that were yelling. I thought I heard at least five but I was sure there were more. "Shit," I muttered to myself. I had hoped that they police would be able to take out more Proxies, maybe even do the job for me, but I hadn't counted on Slendy being so damn attached to his servants. I did bring weapons but not for this many people. I was so close I couldn't turn back, I was desperate. In retrospect I should have called the police again or something, but doesn't matter now.
It was 1:52 when I ran in the doorway with my gun firing randomly. I was lucky I managed to hit three proxies with nonfatal wounds, but their pain and surprise gave me enough time to finish them with my other gun. Then I realized my mistake. The four proxies I killed I had killed with a combination of stealth and (mostly) luck, but my gun was loud and I could hear more heading my way. I wasn't Batman or one of his ancestors I couldn't just disappear after that. What an idiot I was. Baka. So I did the only thing I could which ironically was the stupidest thing I had done yet. I called out, "Door!"
"Yes, Kyle?" said Door as he appeared at my side stopping time again.
"I accept your deal. I'll become your damn herald."
"I'm happy to hear you say that, Kyle, but you do understand the terms of the contract correct?"
"I become your lapdog that helps you win this game and in exchange I get three boons."
"Good to know. I wanted to be sure we were clear." Door held out his hand for me to shake which I accepted. With that it was done.
"Good my first wish is to survive this and to be clear I mean I would survive while completing my goal. Teleporting me away doesn't count as surviving this."
Door laughed, "Fine, it will be done." With that I Door was gone, time was moving again, and I could hear the footsteps moving again. Suddenly I felt something urging me to jump to my side which I did though faster than ever before, most have been the enhanced everything Door mentioned before, as a tomahawk came soaring through the air where my head had been.
"There's the bastard," one of them said. "Slaughter his ass," said another. They started to spread out to some o\at me from different sides, but I felt something urging me on, guiding me would be better, to attack. I moved faster than any of them could and slit ones neck before they even knew it. By the time that any of them realized what had happened I ripped the stomach of another of them apart. Before I knew it myself another four mutilated bodies lay before me. I was shocked but moved on not having time to thing about what just happened. I could... fell two more proxies in the room around the corner and after refill my guns I killed both quickly and easily. I was in the clear for now I felt. Looking around I didn't see Fred among the bodies and prepared to have to face him too.
I found a body in the next room, not-Jeff. His neck was slit, had a smile carved on his face, and had his eyelids peeled off among other things. I resisted the urge to throw off as I realized what this had to mean, I mean who else could have down it. "Fuck." I sensed I wasn't in any danger as I moved on trying to put the implication out of my head.
It was 2:04 when I found the room that Source was in. He was tied to chair and was covered in bruises and cuts. "Yo Kyle is that you?" he said when he saw me entering the room.
"My god, Virgil are you alright?" I shouted. I know I've been trying to keep his name a secret but now it doesn't seem important anymore.
"Of course it is. Who did you think would be tied to a chair? Fred and his LARP buddies? Come on man that's stupid."
"What have they done to you?" I questioned as I untied him.
"Not much just the usual; beat me, tell me to worship a meme from the internet, start cutting me when I refuse, tell me to kill you, I laugh at the fact they think I would fall for their tricks."
"And you resisted for months?"
"It's been that long really? Wow. Any way yep no problem. It'll take more to brake me." I quickly learned that Virgil had become more detached from reality than he had before, but in a good way that resulted in a sort of "Mary Sue Complex" that actually kept him from being brainwashed.
"I've been waiting for you." Fuck. Fred was standing in the doorway holding a sword.
"Fred I came here to save you and Virgil. Just come with me I can help you."
"Why would I come with a Heathen like you? No I'm he to kill you."
"Hey Freddy you still worshippin' that same meme or have you move on to nein cat yet?" interjected Virgil all so helpfully.
"Shut up you fuckin' Heathen! Whatever now I can kill you both in the name of the Dark One. Praise the Dark One! Praise the one above God!" he shouted as he can at me with his sword. Luckily for me my boon let me block the attack without a problem. Unluckily for me that same boon tried to push me towards killing Fred. I knew I couldn't resist the urge too long so I did what I had to do. At 2:09 I called Door.
"Kyle? That was quicker than I thought how may I help?" he questioned.
"It's time for my second boon," I said, "free Fred from Slender Man's control."
"An interesting, though unexpected boon, but sure no prob, Kyle." Door dashed over to Fred and grabbed his head lifting him off the ground before dropping him. "Done."
"Oh no. What... What have I done?" Fred started to mutter to himself. He was free, going to suffer from trauma sure but free. That's when Slender Man appeared, but this time I had planned for it.
"Door, time or my final boon."
"Of course I'll port you and your two friends away."
"Wait, what?" That was new I had never seen Door confused before.
"My final boon is that you personally fight Slender Man to insure that we can get away."
"You heard me. Your Herald is in danger and I want you to personally fight to make sure that we can survive," I said hoping I was coming off as an over confident ass instead of the scared to death little kid I felt like.
"As you wish," said Door though you could feel his anger in the air, "but when I win you can expect a face worse than hell as my bitch." I grabbed both Fred and Virgil and ran not daring to look at the fight fearing what witnessing a between such divine being would do to me.
It was 2: 59 AM when the three of us left and ran to my RV. Virgil went inside to rest move too much for someone who had been malnourished and tied to a chair for who knows how long. Me and Fred stood outside talking some.
"I have to go Kyle," Fred said to me.
"No you don't," I told him, "we need to stay together and protect each other./ We aren't safe yet and at least one of the survived that fight and they are going to be pissed. We'll have a better chance of surviving if we stick together," I pleaded.
"I can't I've down too much to both of you I can't live with mysel-"
"Don't give me that bullshit! Neither of us care about what the fuck you did to us will you were mind controlled. We are back together again after what a year and you want to leave us already?"
"Sorry," he said avoiding looking at me, "be careful I can feel that He is still out there." And with that he was gone without giving me a solid reason. I understand he has a lot of guilt and all but damnit! For the past hour I've been sitting her with Virgil telling me about how he was able to heroically ignore the "batshit insane LARPers'" mind control at while I type this post up. That's my day. One question before I sign off at 2:42, did I win?
