Ok, so I'm alive. Don't know how, considering how they found me, but I am.
Still have a splitting migraine, and my phone refuses to work.. All my old messages are scrambled, most of my pictures are black, can't call out.. but, I'll get to that in a moment. I said I would post when I felt better (or rather I had Christina say so.) and that's what I'll do, before I get some more rest.
At 9:00 EST, I had finally gotten Jeff out of bed and ready to go. We were going to take two different vehicles there - my truck and his Kia. We figured that if something happened, that way one of us could go for help. What's a truck with out keys? I don't think the Slender Man is just going to reach in to my pocket and toss them out to him. ANY WAY.
We got to the park at 9:15 or so. There was one other truck there, and it was leaving when we got there. One of the neighbors - think her name is Sally. She walks her dog around the path that borders Silver Lake, but never enters the 'nature trail' area. Says her dog is spooked easily out there. Well, she waved at us as she was leaving, we waved back. She was the only person there when we got there, and from what I know - the only person there at all during the time I was.
Jeff and I set up a plan for when we were in there. He would back his car in as close as possible(There's wooden pole things to stop cars from getting in.) and leave the door unlocked. I was to go in first, and he would follow behind. And that's what we did. We both kept watch, checking all around us, also looking for anything that would give my sister's spot away. The pavilion in the pictures was where we got the first 'hint'. Her little symbol thing was carved in to one of the support beams, and colored in with red sharpie. An arrow pointed east, further in to the trail.
Jeff took this time to make sure his gun was loaded and ready to go. I got my knife at the ready, just incase.
about ten minutes or so of walking, we come across a rock with an arrow drawn on it, so we follow it's direction - north.
Wasn't long after that when Jeff found the log. Jeff may be a great friend and all, but, he's a clumsy motherfucker. Tripped over his own damn feet and landed on the ground on his chest. If it wasn't for that, we would have missed the log. He noticed the symbol on it and we searched around the area. The ground was covered with that stringy looking shit (long pine needles?) but, we could see a 'pattern' under them. There was a circle of rocks under them. That was where we dug.
Ended up leaving my little shovel thing in the truck, so I had to use my knife to dig out the hole. The jar was about down to my wrist level and tilted in to a chamber in the hole - not sure if we dug in the wrong spot, or if that was intentional.
So, as on the way up, we start taking pictures. Jeff was like "What's that over there in the trees?" and I thought he was fucking with me, so I'm like "What? Bigfoot?" and he just shrugs it off and says "Probably just paranoid. All this shit's got me tense." So, I take a few shots - one of which sends my phone's camera in to a shit storm of glitchyness. Finally get it fixed and start heading out. All of a sudden, I hear Jeff yelling "SHIT SHIT SHIT!", and the sound of three gun shots. He goes running, I turn to see what he was trippin out over, and just see something large and black, like four or five tree limbs all at once, shooting at me. I can only guess what it was...
So, that was around maybe 10:30-45 at the latest. I don't remember much of anything after that. I remember something that sounded like a child laughing, but, much much more raspy. Like, if you took Marge Simpson's sisters voices, made them laugh like a happy baby, and stuck it to a thing with out a body... I remember that sound and running. I never knew the park was that big... Or...was I even still there? I think I snapped a few pictures, but shoved my phone back in my pocket and kept running. Then it all went black.
When I came too, Christina and Jeff were over me looking like they had just witnessed a murder, I felt like I just binge drank for a month and had the hang-overs held off for one large 'gift' at the end, and I felt nasty..
Well, come to find out, I was covered in mud, found resting against the side of my truck. My knife was gone, my wallet was gone, all the change I had in my pockets was gone, I had a 'good luck charm' I got from my sister for my birthday when I was 10 - gone. Don't know what that was all about...
I got to Christina's at like 1:30 or so. Passed out on her bed. Think she said she told her dad I got mugged or something. He's cool with me staying - says that it's keeping her from locking her self away until school starts, which she does each year supposedly.
I went home around 3 to get a shower and some new clothes. Could swear I saw 'him' a few times on the way. Had no phone reception, my radio was picking up pure static, and the traffic lights were totally dead. Seemed like I was the only one on the road, too. Noticed shit on my phone wasn't right, too. Jumbled messages, missing pictures, ect.
Got home, got my shit together and got cleaned up, came back here where I proceeded to pass out again. Super bad headache. Christina says she had a horrible one too, and could swear she saw 'him'.
I woke up around six, and went over to her Neighbor, Joe, and asked him some stuff. Said I found a news paper article (one of you guys left one.) about some animal killings, and wanted to know if he was that same Joe. Come to find out, he is. People said that 'he' only sees you if he's after you. I would think the people cleaning up the messes he leaves might be considered targets too. He thinks the killer is fucking with him too - that cat Christina mentioned before... he said he tried to keep it quiet because he didn't want any drama, but, same style killing... Head penetrated with a thick, round cylindrical-spike, skinned, organs removed, and then placed back in the body in plastic bags...
I think I know what my sister's message means, by the way.
When she...passed... We had all the stuff like her stuffed animals (yes, even at her age, she had 'em.), her computer stuff, all her posters and personal stuff... we had it all put in storage, but we use her room as a guest bedroom now. That's why her bed and stuff were still in there. I assume by her little message, she's referring to her dresser.
I'll check that tomorrow. For now, I'm going back to sleep. I'm over at Christina's as I might have already said. I don't know how safe it is here, but after today, I don't want to leave her side. If she's a target as I am....well... I'm not going to lose another person I care about to this monster.
