The Toucher

I was sleeping when I first saw it. I was unable to move, like I had sleep paralysis, only I wasn’t dreaming. There was a humanoid monster standing next to my bed. It was pale, and half of its body was missing. It reached out to touch me, but then it looked away and turned completely into dust.

Once I was able to move again, I got ready for school and left. I was terrified the whole day.

At night, I saw it again, out of my window. I just put it aside and thought of it as my imagination. I went to bed.

When I woke up that morning, it was Saturday. I stayed in my room, looking out the window. I was extremely paranoid.

I saw my friend walking down the street. The thing, just appeared right behind him. It was walking behind him. It had long spikes on it’s back. My friend turned around, and he screamed. The thing, whose fingers weren’t sharp at all, just put his finger on my friend’s side. Somehow, it just dug into his side with no problem. Every part of my friend’s body that was around the thing’s finger, turned into dust. The thing looked directly at me, and I immediately shut my window and went to bed.

I woke up unable to move, and the thing was there, only it didn’t look like the thing. It looked like my friend. He looked pale, and his arm was missing. I heard him mutter “I’m sorry.” before his finger dug into my chest.
