Nobody

Nobody is a strange and spooky story about an old man who is scared while he walks home one night.

Nobody

There was an old man who was an alcoholic. Every morning, when the local bar opened, he would go inside and order a drink. He would not emerge until closing time, drunk and disoriented. Then, he would stagger home and fall into bed.

One rainy, windy night, the old man was on his way home and decided to take a short cut through an alley. A gust of wind blew a tile off a roof just as he was walking by. The tile hit him on the head and smashed into tiny pieces.

The man was knocked to the ground. As he struggled to his feet, clutching his aching head, he looked up.

“Who did that?” he asked out loud.

The wind whistled through the alley and he thought he heard a faint voice whisper, “Nobody.”

The man turned around quickly. The alley was dark and deserted. Nobody was there.

“Who said that?” he demanded.

Nobody replied.

The old man continued down the alley, craning his neck and looking around him furtively. Shadows flickered across the stone walls.

“Who’s there?” he shouted.

Nobody heard him.

His pace quickened and fear gripped his heart. He had the sneaking feeling that somebody was following him. A chill went down his spine and he began to run. Suddenly, he slipped on something, stumbled and fell to his knees.

“Who tripped me?” he cried.

Nobody answered.

Through the wind and the rain, he thought he could hear somebody breathing heavily. The sounds seemed to be very close. He scrambled to his feet and shouted, “Keep away from me! Don’t come near!”

Nobody listened to his cries.

Desperately, the old man felt around in the darkness. His hand came across a piece of wood lying on the ground. It was thick and heavy and had a long, rusty nail sticking out of it. Picking it up, he started swinging it back and forth.

“Get back!” he screamed. “Get away from me!”

He lashed out at the darkness, using the length of wood like a club. He accidentally swung the piece of wood too hard and hit himself in the head. The force of the blow drove the rusty nail right into his brain and killed him.

The next day, two policemen were walking their beat, when they came across the dead body of the old man, lying in the gutter.

“Who would have killed him?” asked one of the policemen, thinking out loud.

The wind whistled through the alley and he thought he heard a faint voice whisper, “Nobody.”

    @reTARDIS

    “Whatever you do, don’t blink.
    Don’t blink. Blink and you’re dead. They are fast. Faster than you can believe. Don’t turn your back. Don’t look away. And don’t blink. Good Luck.”

    (BEST EP EVAH!!! *fistbump*)

    Now…
    For those of you who don’t know, the weeping angels look like stone only when you look at them. Whenever a living creature looks at them, they turn to stone, but if you so much as blink, that gives them the window they need to reach and kill you.

  20. reTARDIS says

    Add a new story including the Weeping Angels from Doctor Who! They fit in the ‘horror’ section! They are winged humanoids :D The weeping angels move in the blink of an eye.
    The one rule is this: ‘Don’t turn your back, don’t look away and don’t blink!’ That’s what the Doctor says.

    @killerkat101
    Try reading it again, but think of it as instead of no one there, a ghost named Nobody. I did it and it cleared it up a bit for me! :)

  26. killerkat101 says

    Yay a new story finally anyway it was a really good story but I don’t get it so there was nobody there and it was his imagination or something, I’m confused :/

  27. xXPhantomFangWolfXx says

    Creepy story. It reminds me of two things. One is a Youtube video I once watched of this guy at a restaurant who was so drunk he ate his napkin. True story. The other is a poem by Shel Silverstein called Nobody. Here:

    Nobody loves me,
    Nobody cares,
    Nobody picks me peaches and pears.
    Nobody offers me candy and Cokes,
    Nobody listen and laughs at my jokes.
    Nobody helps when I get in a fight,
    Nobody does all my homework at night.
    Nobody misses me,
    Nobody cries,
    Nobody thinks I’m a wonderful guy.
    So if you ask me who’s my best friend, in a whiz,
    I’ll stand up and tell you that Nobody is.
    But yesterday night I got quite a scare,
    I woke up and Nobody just wasn’t there.
    I called out and reached out for Nobody’s hand,
    In the darkness where Nobody usually stands.
    Then I poked through the house, in each cranny and nook,
    But I found somebody each place that I looked.
    I searched till I’m tired, and now with the dawn,
    There’s no doubt about it—
    Nobody’s gone!
