Hello again. What do I tell you first? More on how eerie my life has become? Or do I tell you how more fucked up Alex's life was turning out to be? Regardless, I am not bearer of good news. I am growing tired. I am scared to sleep during the day, I am scared to sleep during the night. I am afraid that if I ever go to sleep, that thing will get me.
As I stated in the last entry, I got myself a dog. Named her Nev, short for Nevada. Call me weird or what not, I felt it was in honor for Alex's dog Sierra. Nev, has been a good dog, she's very watchful. I can trust her and I know that she trusts me. Enough bags of Beggin Bits can do that to a dog. She's very obedient and I am happy to have her as my friend, and loyal pet.
Since my last entry I have spoken to several of the cast and crew of April Showers, asking them if they felt anything strange on set. My friend Rebecca, said she remembered one day when Alex paniced during a script read through and drove away without giving any possible reason why. Chris reinforced this, said he didn't know what the hell happened. One second he was reading for his character, next he was gripping onto the seat for dear life, afraid he was going to die in a car accident. He told me he was close to quitting that day, but it wouldn't have made a difference. Alex was already on edge by the time that day happened, I assumed.
I have noticed a pattern in these videos that I have been watching. Alex progressed through a stage on the slender man. At first, he was curious. He wanted to know more about the slender man and became infaturated in filming the creature. As to why, I have no idea, the thing is scary as fuck. I sure as shit would not want to be filming that thing out of curiosity. As we all know, curiosity killed the cat, and in this case Alex was the cat. I really shouldn't have said that, is Alex really dead? What did that thing do to him? Will it do it to... I need to stop thinking about this.
As I was saying, Alex went from being curious about this creature, to being paranoid. He felt as if the creature was somehow stalking him, always knowing where Alex was. This finally came to a conclusion where Alex was terrified of the creature, terrified for his own life. Reading some of these stories I've found from the library and the internet, there is reason to be scared. But, I think Alex figured out something about the monster, that he didn't before hand which would explain why he continually filmed it. But I'll get to that later. First, I'm going to show you all a video. Note: This is a part of the stage where Alex was terrified. The video starts. Like video #1 and #4, there is no audio in the video. The video itself appears to be a direct continuation of video #1, where Alex saw the slender man standing outside his garage.
In this particular video, instead of being on the second floor, Alex is now on the first floor of his home. He is stumbling around the dark, I can make out the front door, that's all. The camera steadies against the window of his living room, which is directly to the right of the front door. Behind Alex is the staircase that leads upstairs. Pushing up against the window, scanning once again, Alex films the outside of his home. The garage and driveway are empty. His gray Honda Civic rests parked on the far end of the driveway, near the forest. As Alex scans back to the left, a shadow appears. It's the slender man, walking alongside the house, towards the window.
In a panic, Alex ducks down. For a moment, the camera is pitch black as Alex crawls away from the window by the staircase. He films the window to the left of the front door. The slender man passes by the window, peering into the window, looking for Alex, before passing by to the door. The camera shakes uncontollably. Yeah, Alex was scared alright. Without a doubt. As the slenderman's large and skinny frame leaves the window, the video cuts.
The more I watch these videos, the more hopeless I feel my situation become. Is Alex still alive? Can he be? As I said before, I may not be hunting the slender man like Alex did, but I definitely feel like he's hunting me. Like Alex, even I have started carrying around my own personal camera. I will be uploading these videos of myself, when I capture something.
As to my theory on why Alex had a camera with him. Somehow, when he was pursuing the slender man, he must have figured out that filming the creature slows him down. The slender man does not belong in this world, and by filming him, we are creating a paradox in the earth's atmosphere, thus slowing him down. If not, the creature is too fast for us to even see or comprehend that he's even there. It's an oddball theory, but its the best I've got... I got to go, dog's barking again...
