Aftermath

Hello, this is Graves. Gallows cannot come to the computer as of now.

Do you remember when we mentioned how he has not experienced fear? It was true until then. From a child he has been molded to be what he is now, apathetic to such little things. Yet those little things are the ones most potent to crippling man. You never understand something until you experience it. He's been murdering and inspiring the very thing he has never been able to feel, until now. Years of torment caught up within a single moment, realization of what his hand has brought to many.

This is not regret, it is beyond him to regret. This is acknowledgement to the other side of things.


Josie kindly claimed Gallows fled, wise of her but not true. As his gravedigger and his bodyguard I was forced to drag him from the scene. There was nothing he could do, chained down within such a state of fear it was like he was a useless child.


I took him out of the heart of the city, we spent a few hours fleeing and hiding until Mister Creevey was finally lost. Within an abandoned store Gallows sat within a corner and I stood on guard.


We know of Gallows to be a cheery man, enthusiastic and bloodthirsty. Few have seen his intellect behind the joyous exterior. Now it is in the open without anything to hide behind. He has grown darker after coming face to face with fear itself.


I attempted to approach him while we were within the abandoned store. He sat on an old rusty chair and was still wearing the bloody attire. His skeletal upper body torn for the most part, the mask revealed from below his nose to the base of his collar. There was not a part of him that wasn't without a hole. I wished to cease the bleeding for it could be seen quite easily. He sprang from the chair when I halted in front of it and pinned me to the wall, his hands found my throat with ease. He came close to breaking this body, had it not been my job to protect him and had he not been within danger I would have allowed it.


That was not the situation. He was within danger still and I could not die while that was in place. So I broke myself free which in turn dislocated his shoulder, it was fixed briefly after that.


He spoke to me and I did as I always did, the only thing I could do. I listened.

Later assisting him in walking I took us to the only home we've come to know, took him to the basement and began work on his wounds. We'd replace his attire later, he remained in boxers while I stitched and cleansed each cut. I removed the black face paint from around his eyes after taking off what was left of his mask. Held his head over a bucket and I cleaned the blood and sweat out of his hair.


Gallows pulled me to my knees when I had finished, he tossed off my headgear and removed the stitches from my lips. He inquired about Mister Creevey mentioning he hid evidence from my past. I told him what had happened, the beginnings of how I came to be as I am now. How the stalking began before the car collision that ended my family and left me with nothing. Mister Creevey has hidden evidence from what Slender Man has done to us and made us do to others. That is no different from my case.


He's left my mouth without stitches since then, by my guess to question further later. His mood has been grim and serious, I have not heard a laugh of joy only that of spite which fits him little.


Mister Creevey showed himself at the edge of the property the other day, he's been wandering around the edges of it. This land he claims to be different, special, the land the city and its outskirts are built on. How he is not able to come onto this property is beyond me. I believe he's figuring out a way to change that, the way he's been examining it and testing the invisible line that keeps him out. For now Gallows is safe but for how long I cannot say, we remain here until he finds a way through. If he does.


What is it the rest of you claim to have? Gut instincts? They tell me he will succeed.


Forever vigilant I shall be until this threat is eliminated. I will continue to post but it may end abruptly, Gallows can only survive so long on what he has harvested last. I dare say he may look to me when all that runs out. Only time will decide who will live and who will die, survival is just another fairy tale determined to end badly.


Until next time, hopefully Gallows will return to posting by then.

  5. @Hacim take your mess elsewhere, I will not allow any troubles to come near my Gallows while he is within such a state. Either you stay together while you are here or you wait until you are better.

    Motivation has increased. He seethes now, the fear will not bind him but make him grow instead.

    @Zero Song Praying is useless but your meaning is appreciated.

  8. Oh, sweetheart, I wish I hadn't been gone so long. I might have been able to help. Now, I'm afraid things have gone a bit too far.

    That said, are you still recuperating? Are you still following Miss Josie and the creepy creevey?

    ReplyDelete
  9. @Dia He is recuperating, there has been a change in his demeanor but it has only motivated him to destroy the enemy. Gallows intends to pay Josie a visit at some point, it all depends on Mister Creevey's actions.

    As of now Mister Creevey continues to try an weasel his way past our border. Gallows is preparing for the moment he breaks through.

  10. Any particular reason why he wants in so badly? Maybe I'm missing the point, but something isn't clicking. He's obsessed with Gallows, and really, I would love to know why.

    Gallows, when you get the chance, come talk to me some time on here. I worry for ya, ya know?

    ReplyDelete
  11. @Dia He appears to have chosen Gallows as his host for a reason we are not aware of. Fear and aggression appears to play heavily into his choices. We are unaware of further reasons.

    He acknowledges your message, Dia.

  12. Graves, you and Gallows are frequent posters and the fact we have not heard from you aside form these comments is alarming. Right now you're in a bad situation and all these delays are making it worse.

    Let me be blunt, deary. Gallows is going to get you both fucking killed. Unless you take some damn initiative you both are going to be either slaughtered or transformed into puppets.

    I had time while taking a break down here to go over some comments left on my blog and reread some posts. Your Mister Creevey commented on my Away Trip post with the following:

    "Darklings. Looks like you found my brethren, Lady. Congratulations on surviving them."

    Mistery Creevey is a Darkling, and from what I've seen while I was away those little monsters do a shit ton of damage. If it wasn't for the proxies my situation would have been similar to someone jumping into a meat grinder.

    Anyways, if you want more information that I have been gathering just email me. If you want to save Gallows along with yourself you might want to at least consider doing so, deary. Not saying I can get you out of your situation, it's a pretty fucked up one at that, but at least you'll have something on your enemy. That's better than nothing.

    Also, I have some suggestions regarding your "waiting to run" situation to add to it. Places that might help conceal you guys at the very least.

    You need to start applying some force to Gallows snapping out of it, he's on the verge of murdering you both.

    Do try and stay safe otherwise, dears,
    -Shady
