She's a friend of mine from high school. Moved away to Alabama our senior year. Got an e-mail today. She's back in Ohio, and some idiot put her through all of Marble Hornets as a practical joke. And now, she's having activity around her.
To be completely honest, she's been mailing me for the past few months. We kept in contact after she moved, but since I started distancing myself from everyone when this started I'd been communicating with her less frequently. Same for all my old friends. I thought that would help keep them out of it. Seems I was wrong.
I had seen her messages grow slowly more upset when I went through the month worth of them where I was missing. I never replied back to her once I was here. Thought it would be best on everyone's part if they thought I was dead or something. They'd be upset, but that's better than the alternative. Today's e-mail was the first to mention anything Slender-related... I guess about a week ago someone showed it to her and it really freaked her out. It could just be nothing and it's her own paranoia, or she's just yet another victim for Him. I'm not a betting man. And even if I was I wouldn't put any money on the prior. Not after what we've all seen. And yet if the latter is true... my presence could agitate the situation, and it's not like I'd actually be able to protect her if I went. We're both equally weak and strength in numbers doesn't really apply. Even if I was to try and go meet her, I'm under protective custody. Not sure they'll let me just walk out of here.
I haven't even sent her a message back yet. I'm not sure if I should.
