True Guardians

Scary Story User Entry

Ever since I was a child, I always had this uncontrollable fear inside me, so uncontrollable to the point I screamed even at the littlest things that looked like a threat to me and my existence. And this fear of mine did not stop but grew into something more… Unforgettable when an ‘incident’ came and crashed into my life and changed it.

However, my life before the incident wasn’t bright because my eyes haven’t deceived me, my eyes have seen what wasn’t supposed to be seen, and now I cannot unsee them. Whenever I warned my family about my sights, they waved their hands at me and told me it was just my pure imagination. Other members made a mockery out of me and others abused me for my ‘annoyance’.

I never stopped pointing my finger at the threats, threats only I saw. But my family kept ignoring me, some told me to shut my mouth before I drive them insane with my continuous fear and screaming. When all of this happened, these ‘creatures’ drew their darkest grins and spread their hollow laughs only I heard. This is where my sorrow and fear grew, and somewhat my defeat was coming along.

One night, the night of the incident, multiple screams from all over the house, from downstairs to upstairs, awakened me. These screams drove me out of the comfort of my room and into the unknown horrors that occurred around me and before my very eyes. I was right all along and yet not a single word escaped my lips about what I witnessed, my young mind couldn’t comprehend what was happening.

The walls and furniture were splattered and sprayed with crimson blood, some seeped and pooled on the floorboards and were drunk by the carpets. What littered along were broken frames, shattered glass, torn fabrics of the curtains and sofas. A mess where a wild animal would surely cause, but this was no animal.

Stood before me was a tall, slender creature. Its arms that reached the bloody floor held the dripping limbs of each of my family, munching and chewing the flesh off the bone as it stared deep into my soul with its glowing blend of red and yellow. This is where my mind couldn’t endure any longer and I drifted into the darkness.

Now, where am I? After that dark incident, after I was raised in an orphanage and let out, I learned that one member of my family had survived and lived outside of town. So, with my new skills and perspective from the orphanage, I decided to visit him. I walked to the porch and rang the bell, not too long he opened the door with a surprised look on his face.


“Hello Dave,” I replied coldly.

“W-What are you doing here? And how are you alive?” He asked.

“Well, I have a quick gift to offer you,” I reached for my back pocket. “do you have anything to say before I give it to you?”

“No,” he said.

Without hesitation, I took out my gun and pulled the trigger as the bullet went right through his skull and exited at the end. His corpse kneeled and then fell face-first into the floor.

As it turned out, my family were nothing but careless morons who cared only about themselves, and the ‘creatures’ I witnessed in my house were trying to save me from them. They were the only ones who cared about me and protected me since the beginning of my birth as they told me.

These creatures were my true guardians.
