Mary Interview, Part 2

(This next part is later that afternoon. She had mostly calmed down by this point, and was ready to talk again.)

M: Sorry…

S: It’s fine. Now, you said you saw his real form. Do you remember what it was?

M: There’s no word in our language for something like that, nothing to compare it to…it’s massive, though, the biggest thing I had ever seen, bigger than any animal or human I had ever met…it had so many arms…and its face…

S: It’s real form has a face?

M: I guess this world can’t support it or it must’ve figured it couldn’t get what it wanted, go into public like that…so it takes that human form to move around freely, come and go…

S: And no one else knows about it?

M: If the priests knew, they never said anything. They interrogated me about my encounter for hours afterwards, but I never told them what I had seen…I guess that ironically let them believe I could be trusted.

S: And Lizzie?

M: My parents didn’t want to risk it, not after he almost killed me. So they called off the ritual. We stayed around long enough to be sure she was off his radar, then we had to move on.

S: And you never saw her again?

M: No. We exchanged letters a few times, but life goes on. I’m sure you know that.

S: So you stayed with them until three years ago.

M: Yeah...we had a bit of a...falling out.

S: Meaning what?

(pause)

S: Mary-

M: I killed them.

S: Who?

M: They...they found out I had been helping children targeted for sacrifice escape the rituals. See, after what happened, I didn't want to think about kids being...I just couldn't bear it, not after that. So...I started helping some get away. Not many, one or two at a time, not enough to attract suspicion. But that last one...half their supply got away, just in time for some anniversary ritual. They...didn't like that.

My parents were terrified. They knew if the priests ever found out, then all of us would've been offered up. My father said that Slender Man was angry at everyone...my mother told me that I was going to be offered instead...

I wasn't going to let that happen. I had no desire to be anywhere near him again. So...I had to get away. There was a knife on the counter. I had to get away.

S: You killed your parents...

M: They were going to give me to him. They stopped being my parents.

S: And then-

M: And then I took what I could and ran. I don't think he liked that.

S: What do you mean?

(long pause)

S: What do you mean?

(long pause)

M: I heard someone tell me once, someone else on the run said that the reason Slender Man became so active was because some idiot posted pictures of him on the internet. Well...that's...not entirely the case.

(long pause)

S: You can't be serious...

M: The night I took off, he lost control in the chapel. Most of the hierarchy was slaughtered right away. Those that survived went into hiding. And without anyone to feed him or keep him contained...

S: You mean to tell me the reason he's been getting so active the last couple of years...was because of you?

M: Look, it wasn't intentional! I didn't know he'd get out of control like that! And anyway, it seems contained. In my travels, I've only met a few that have actually seen him. If we can keep it like that-

S: You think this is contained?

M: What?

S: ...You really don't know, do you?

M: What?

S: Mary, the last two years has been almost total warfare against this thing. It's chaos all over the country. Alabama, New Jersey, Florida, Indiana, Maryland, London. Since last fall, a couple hundred cases have been logged, and that number gets bigger every day. We've lost good people in the last twelve months, and you're saying the reason for all of this is because you messed with his food supply?

(long pause)

M: ...What?

S: Yeah. It's been a fucking mess. There are videos documenting the things he's done, people have been blogging every little detail they can remember. Everyone's looking to me for answers, I'm looking to you, and you're telling me that you're the fucking problem?

M: I didn't...I had no idea...

S: How do you not know?

M: I've been running for three years, I never stay in one place for longer than a week, and I don't own a fucking laptop, cop! I don't go online much, okay?

S: Well, newsflash, I've seen him. I've fought him. My partner, your childhood friend? Sliced open by one of his followers, who then kidnapped, tortured and murdered another one of my partners. I got my throat squeezed by one of his arms. Oh, and best news of all, I'm an FBI wanted felon now, because my idiot fucking neighbor from next door heard me screaming, came into my house to check on me, and got blown away by a shotgun!

(pause)

M: You...killed your neighbor with a shotgun?

S: No, he...it was a trap, I had it wire-rigged to go off if the door was opened-

M: You jerry rigged a shotgun trap?

S: Does it really fucking matter?

(That last bit was too much for my throat. The next ten or fifteen minutes is me coughing up a lung while she got my medicine. This part ends here.)

  2. Ha. Hehehe. Oh, wow. Aren't you two something else entirely? Such a lovely duo. Two murderers rip for the picking. He'll be coming for you both so very soon... or maybe He won't. Maybe He likes watching from afar. Watching the guilt pluck away at your minds as his "food supply" just grows and grows by the day. I know I would.

  3. Hey Nightscream. Buddy. My trench knives would like to have a word with you.

  4. Oh, is that all he wants? Plenty of annoying little brats he can eat. Come on, everybody, find the most obnoxious kid you know and give the big guy some breakfast.

  5. If you think about it the numbers aren't all that much worse, it's still dramatically more spread out, but all in all he probably still only kills the same number of people. Heh, Mary did everyone a favor, actually, he is now consuming prey that actually fights him. This is incrediably intresting though, I must talk with him about it, I can't wait to see what he has to say.

    See you around

  6. Given that there's evidence of its activity outside the cult before Mary went and did her thing, I'd have to say I'm skeptical of her claim that some cult was capable of "feed[ing] him or keep[ing] him contained..."
    Far as I see it, if it went berserk and killed the cultists, it did it was because it wanted to, not because it was sad they weren't giving it any food.

  8. @Raggedyman... THAT is your best attempt to defend your glorious hero? The all-wonderous Zeke? Good Lord, child. Think first. Type later.

  9. I must wonder, has he HEARD of Bieber?

    Okay, a lot of people would notice. But he could always send a proxy or something to replace him.

    Oh wow. He HAS killed Bieber, hasn't he?

    But in all seriousness, this is quite the news. There could be multiple reasons for the breakout though.. not to mention that people would still be dying to him even if Mary hadn't rebelled.

  10. @Nightscream I'm not really defending Zeke.

    I just do not like you.

  15. This seems so WEIRD and im kinda skeptical about what Mary said.

    Its seems so strange that cultists could control him, giving him food (those poor kids...) I still dont believe in that, but well we have to deal with Him now.

    Good lord they brought something far beyond his own minds, and many people even Zeke are dealing with that mistake...

    Sorry for my writing, english is my second language XD

    Hoping to read some news soon, Zeke!

  16. The more I read the more i cannot believe. The reason is bigger than SHE thinks. You thinks it becuase of food?

    Its challenge. The hunter got bored, complacent, tired of just being handed his meal. HE got tired of those people, like a spoiled child with a toy, bored with it wanting the newest thing.

    HE wanted the thrill of the hunt. The FEAR is what drives him, the FEAR is what he craves, its FEAR he requires, the less you fear him, the more he tries. The only way to beat him...is to not fear him, not to worship him, not even kill yourself hoping to save your soul.

    its to find out not who he WILL hunt but who he won't hunt...No matter how many times i find him, he will not hunt me, he will not attack me, he...will...fear...death.

  17. Holy fuck. He has a true form? That's not.....

    wow

  18. So she's saying we're all in this position because of what she did? Motherfucker.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Agreeing with Shaun so hard here. This... this is big.

    But this just makes me interested in why we only see it in this form. Surely it would be far easier if it emerged as it truly is?

    Unless... Oh, shit. We are in trouble.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I doubt her escape was the sole reason behind its rampage. its like animals in a zoo. You can't just leave the food on a plate, you need to make them work for it or they become stressed. Its called enrichment.

  21. There are three types of lies: lies, damned lies, and the Slender Man.

    The fact that the Slender Man increased in activity over the past few years is self-evident. The reason why has been speculated. Mary's testimony seems to point to a reason.

    But really, if you examine it closely, there is no reason. With the Slender Man, there is no rhyme nor reason nor logic. It killed its own priests. In a rage? Does the Slender Man know rage or anger? Or did it kill them, perhaps, because it was tired of them and wanted to spread its arms across the world?

    Is this Mary's fault or did you just shout at a poor woman for no reason?

    Well, there is no reason. None at all. Just the way He likes it.

  24. Please tell me I'm not the only one concerned about the fact that one of the guys is channeling Zalgo a few quotes above.

  26. Really interesting stuff, the whole blog. Kinda new to blogger, so pardon my noobness, but is this whole thing serious?

    Not meaning to insult anyone if this Slenderstuff is all real, but I live alone in a big house and I've got an overactive imagination so this stuff is all getting to me a little. Sorry for this, if anyone knows where I should be putting a post like this and directs me there I'd appreciate it.

  27. Damn, I never would've thought...

    So does this mean that the whole having to see Him to be targeted is inaccurate? Is He really just an uncontrollable monster will no pattern? No lists? No motives? If this is the case...

    I've been looking at this whole situation wrong...

  28. To quote Robot Chicken, "What a twist!"

    Wow. Just... wow.

    Kudos, dear author.

  29. Mary, Mary, quite contrary...

    Wow. One girl inadvertently caused all THIS?

    I don't buy that. Not for one second. She was the straw that broke the camel's back. Nothing more, and nothing less. She was the final crack that broke the glass and let the monster loose.
