Okay, so I've started to write a book about slenderman. My goal is to create a Sci-Fi story rather than a horror story, and to never mention the name "Slender Man" once.
Here's what i have so far:
How long has it been? A week maybe, a month? I’ve lost track of time ever since the incident happened. My uncle tells me that summer is almost over and that I’ll be starting school soon, not that it matters. I’m miles away from any of my friends, in a town that isn’t even on the map. I hate it here! The town gives me the creeps. From the strange people to the dark cliffs overlooking an ominous sea with crashing waves that would tear a fishing boat to shreds. I know that first hand. Uncle Obed has arranged that I go to school at the local Insmouth Academy. But that doesn’t matter. My friends aren’t here, and my parents are dead. They died in the fire that burned down my house. I was the only one who survived. That’s when I was told that I was to live with my uncle Obed Marsh. It’s been quiet and peaceful during my time here, but I can seem to get that horrifying image of the fire. That horrible fire that burned down my house; strong, scorching, and…and blue. Yes, that’s right! It was blue. Oh, well. No time to think about that now, my uncles calling me In for dinner. As I walk in through the front door, the pungent stench of the cabin hits my nose. I’ve gotten used to it by now, but it still stinks. It always smells of fish or octopus or some other type of sea life,but I guess that's what you get for living right by the ocean. But this time theirs another smell mixed in with it,the smell of meat with potatoes. “That’s weird” I thought “we usually have some sort of seafood for dinner”. I walk into the kitchen and see a plate of steak with potatoes. “Hey, Rose!” My uncle calls “come on in and sit down!”. I walk over to the small round kitchen table and take a seat. I start cutting into my steak when my uncle begins to talk. “So”he says “how are you enjoying insmouth?”. I hesitate for a moment before answering. “Just fine” I lie “all though its very lonely here”. “Don’t worry” He says “you’ll make plenty of new friends when you start school in three days”. Only three days! I guess time really has passed, even though it feels like its been standing still. “If your bored, you can always take walks in the woods” says uncle. “yeah, I’ll try that” I say.
So, what do you all think? I'll be introduceing a new character in the woods, and no , its not slendy. He doesn't even appear for a while.
