Confusion (Question Mark)


                                                            Hello everyone!  

               First, I would like to give a brief question introduction:

Some of us look behind the shower curtain for killers every time we do something in the restroom.

So, for those who do, my question is: What are you going to do if you find someone behind them? 


Any who!  While you ponder about that I would like to show and review some of my favorite horror stories that leave me with questions.  

After I tell you about the catch; these aren’t regular horror stories.  They’re two sentences.   

*Note* I don’t own any of these, and most of their authors are unknown.  They mostly come from Reddit and google. 

# 1 “They delivered the mannequins in bubble wrap.  From the main room I begin to hear popping.”

This one is interesting because of the context that’s left out (Duh), but I mean it’s like we don’t know if it’s night or day.  We don’t know if this person is alone or what.  They could be listening to their coworkers unpacking the creepy mannequins.  Who’s to say that they’re haunted?  Or to say that they are real mannequins?  This is why I like this one because it’s only scary or creepy depending on the imagination.  If you think outside the box, you may say that one of them just fell. Or maybe the wrapping is just uncurling itself because we don’t know how they wrapped them.  It’s interesting to think about.  


# 2 “After so many years living alone in this large house I came to a startling revelation.  In this time, I had closed far more doors than I had opened.” 

Are we talking metaphorical doors like opportunities?  Or are we thinking of actual doors?  We don’t know, so this one to me was kind of neutral.  Like, I know we can hypothesize that maybe there’s a ghost or something in the house or someone living in the attic.   But, then there’s the people across the room that would say, what if the person just forgot to close the doors?  Or maybe the doors have just been open since they bought the house and they’re just now shutting them?  Food for thought right.  Also, I think the narrator themself is fishy, because why are you living alone like that in a big house.  Do you have a family?  Did you have a family? What happened to them if you did?  All these questions that I want to answer.  So, I guess that kind of appeals to the spooky sense.    

# 3 “My son told me that his reflection was threatening to replace him.   I thought he was imagining things, until I saw my right-handed son write using his left hand.” 

This one right here is lowkey crazy.  Especially since we got some context, and we can clearly guess what happened.  I’m just saying, what are you supposed to do after that?   Are you supposed to keep going with your everyday routine?   Also, I wonder how long has he been writing with his left hand, like when did this switch happen?  Because if she doesn’t see him write everyday then she could’ve been living with an impostor for a good ole minute. 

Answering the question of what I would do though; I honestly would’ve just packed my bags and left. The person didn’t say how old their son was, so if they’re like 18 and over, I would’ve skedaddled.  Don’t worry though, it would’ve been after I tried to find some more evidence about the kid.   But if it turns out to be an impostor, he will have to watch that door close behind me. 

# 4   The driver wasn’t very chatty, so I checked my phone.                                                                                         

                    “Hey it’s your Uber, I’m outside.”

Dun Dunn DUN!  Or however that dramatic music goes. You know what I mean. This one was creepier because it’s modern and realistic.  It’s not something supernatural.  This could actually happen to someone which is chaotic.  Because you usually don’t know what your Uber driver looks like, you really only know their name like a door dasher but that’s about it.  So, at that point who’s been waiting for you?  Like are they stalking outside your house?  Or did you just decide to get in the car with a random person who decided they’ll kidnap random people.  So many questions.   I’m just saying, as soon as I see that message and the doors are unlocked, I’m dropping and rolling onto the road.  End of discussion.  


A bonus:  Wakes up confused.

                         “Pencils down.” 

Best one yet my dudes.    

 Anyway, you all should comment on your answer to the question from the beginning.  

                           Or answer this question, take your pick. 

                  If you have to go against a slasher, who are you facing?

  1. If I saw someone behind my curtains while I was in the shower, I would spray them with water and squeeze soap in their eyes. I really liked number three it was so creepy these remind me of those two sentence horror stories.

  2. Two sentence horror stories can be so good! Also bro if someone is behind that shower curtain what else is there to do but throw hands. Perhaps try to damage their eyes with soap? Grab a nearby razor?
