Well, for whoever is reading this, im guessing i should provide you with some background information on what this is all about.
Im a 19 year old college student living in Maryland. My parents are divorced, so i spend time at both of their homes. On my moms side im the only child, besides the family pet my mom seems to love to much, and on my dads side i have two younger brothers, one being 14, the other 11. I played line for my high schools football team, so im a big guy, so im usually not bothered by things due to the face that im so much larger than they are. Oh how things have changed.
Towards the end of December 2009, my good friend 'S' who is still in High School began to post notes on his facebook account, recalling events that have been occurring in his life involving a shadowy figure that seemed to follow and torment him every were he went, shattering his usual calm cool self, and turning him into a sleep deprived mess. Being the good church going boy i used to be, i ignored the entry's and figured him to be all worked up over a movie he had seen, or an Internet article he had read. Well he continued to post, each one getting worse. Eventually i called him out of concern, and the story he told me got to me pretty badly. Instead of quoting our conversation here's a brief quote from one of his notes, it sums everything up pretty well:
'Well I found my notebook. Most of the pages were torn out when I found it and some more stuff was written in it. Where did I find it you ask? Well I found it right in front of me after my latest time lapse. The stranger part it is I “woke up” in the woods and the notebook was on the ground in front of me. When I “woke up” I saw the notebook and opened it up. When I opened it I saw an SD card inside of it. I picked up the notebook and got of the woods before I could enter another lapse and lose the notebook again. I’ll attach all the pictures, as well as scans of what I found in the notebook, to the note although most don’t contain anything useful. Now onto the time lapse, I was out running today when it started, I didn’t actually see him this time when it started as far as I can remember I just felt a heavy presence and then my phone started ringing but when I opened it there was no one calling or texting me the screen was just blank. Then it let out a high pitched tone that only lasted for a second. The last thing I actually remember is closing the phone and putting it back in my pocket. Well apparently I found my way home in my dazed state and went into the woods. When I came out of it I freaked out and tried to get out of there as soon as possible. I wound up getting lost and stuck in a huge thicket bush which took me a minute to get out of all the while feeling Him watching me. When I finally got out of the bush and left the woods it felt as if a huge weight had been lifted off my chest, his presence became far less pressuring than it was in the woods for some reason. As I’m sure some of you noticed I posted another coded message like I did the last time I was in a lapse. I decoded it to say “I will wait for you no longer. Control is being taken. You cannot escape me. I am coming for you, and soon you shall join me and be as one.” '
This is description of one of several events were S seemed to black out, and reawaken in different areas, each time with a old notebook, which someone(thing) had written in. He was convinced the shadowy figure was the one doing this to him, i was pretty sure he needed a shrink.
He continued to post more and more encounters, talking about how he would be taken soon, i began to fear what he was going to try to do, but to my relief, the posts stopped, and things began to return to normal for the most part, S and i began to video chat with each other over the program Skype, bickering about random things like normal teenagers do, until February 16th, at 7:06 PM. S and i were talking to each other about the new Pokemon games, fighting over which starter was the best, until he was caught off in mid sentence. I heard a loud high pitched noise from his side of the chat, and his camera experienced interference, and blacked out. I thought the chat had been dropped until i heard S briefly yell in terror, and once again get caught off in mid breath. I sat motionless, not knowing what to do, until i heard the sound of keys being typed. It wasnt the noise produced from the way most people usually type, it was more of a slow, hammering deliberate strike on the keyboard each time. The typing lasted for about three minutes, and eventually a message popped up onto my screen. It came in three different lines

Then the chat was dropped.
Completely Dumbstruck, i just stared at the numbers on my screen, and i began to recognize them as bits of "HEX" code, which i use to make my brothers cheat codes for their games. I pulled up an online translator. This is how they converted,
He is here! He sees me! He sees everything!
I see you too. You will be my next prize
There is no escape. I am slender man
And this is how my life turned to hell.
