Shadow People

Do you ever get that feeling that you are being watched even though you're the only person in the room? How about seeing shadows out of the conrer of your eye? Heads popping around corners, hearing footsteps walk past your door at night ,or hearing them behind you in the kitchen, and then when you look nobody is to be seen? Is it ghosts of dead relatives, is it Angels, perhaps Demons or lost souls wandering the earth in limbo?

No, i am here to tell you now that those feelings, those 'things', are indeed Shadow people. People who are merely just that, blackish grey particles that form a shadow but are as deadly as anything else in the unknown universe. They co-exist on a planet almost identical to earth in a different time zone, through a wormhole billions of miles away. They managed to break through the portals around 1,500 years ago, and are practically naked to the human eye. They can be summoned through rituals, sacrafices, and Ouijji boards and have been seen all over the world.

 These Shadow people are not to be messed with. They possess power far beyond our imagination and unimaginable strength beyond our brains capability of processing. These beings are dangerous and if you ever become an unfortunate target of theirs, there is no way out. They will make your life a living hell. Literally. I am sure you have heard the stories, but you should be fine as long as you dont summon them or anger them in any way. Oh, and for the love of all that is holy, do not , and i mean do not, provoke them. It only makes the torture worse.

How do i know these things? Let me tell you . I witnessed something truly horrific and have been running from the dark ever since. I know i dont have much time before they catch up with me and finish the job. They take no prisoners and leave no witnesses. These people that are mysteriously going ' missing ' bodies never found , no traces, nothing, just like they vanished into think air?Think again. Sudden ' accidents' reported in newspapers and on Television, aren't what they seem. Like the freindliest zoo animal who happens to be a vegetarian acting out of sorts and then pounces for your jugular, tearing you limb from limb. Like that car coming out of nowhere that you narrowly managed to avoid being crushed by. Like those accidnets you have been having latey, tripping over thin air and nearly falling down the stairs. They're not accidents. They never have been.

So using my last breath , i ask you all this . If you hear anything strange , notice anything out of the ordinary , dont look. Keep your eyes to yourself. Look at the floor when you go out. Dont turn around to strange noises. And spend the time you do have with the people important to you. Keep them close, love them, hold on to them for dear life , and spend some quality time with them while you still can, because you never know how long you have left.

One final peice of advice.Do not push them away, even if you think you are saving them, you are not. You're setting them up for a blood bath , and that, is something nobody should ever witness, or live with.

My name is Dean Parker. And this is my story. It is not for the faint hearted. Nor is it to be laughed at. Hear my warnings and do the opposite that I did, or you my friend, will end up in exactly the same situation as me. Well and truly fucked.

Not sure if this is continuation of previous piece or a new story, but a good beginning anyway.
Many of my comments to the earlier piece apply here as well.
wandering the earth in {"Earth" capitalized referring to our planet}
No, i am here {only e.e. cummings gets to use lower case i as the pronoun}
They co-exist on {"coexist" although the "co" seems unnecessary here}
practically naked to {"naked" seems odd here -- maybe "invisible" ? }
you dont summon {"don't" the ' is left out several places here}
opposite that I did, {"opposite of what I did," maybe}

You need a good edit on this.

I get the feeling that this is the beginning of something longer. It could easily be. Is it?
