Left Behind

I didn't mean for this to happen...


I figured I would just run into town, grab some stuff, and then come back and we would leave. I'm so used to being on my own, being aware, knowing my surroundings, not letting anything sneak up on me. Just this one time I got careless. One time.

One minute I'm grabbing a FastBreak and a Snickers off the counter. Next thing I know I'm on the floor in some dank-ass basement in a building I'm not familiar with, with that freakshow standing over me tossing his gun between his hands like it's a fucking hacky sack and telling me to make myself comfortable before he left.

I spent three days in that basement, eating the candy I had taken and trying to figure out what was going on, before he came back. He had this small video camera that he placed on the table; he said he wanted to record what was going to happen.

He reached over and grabbed my face, and said he was sorry he had to do this and that he always thought I was cute, but he wanted to survive so it was worth it. I just responded by trying to bite his finger off. He laughed.

Then he stopped. There were footsteps thudding upstairs; not Slender Man, you can't really hear him walk, you can just feel him. Red doesn't even blink, he just pulled out his gun and ran out.

Then I'm hearing gunshots and yelling for about five minutes, maybe longer, maybe shorter, I don't know. Then there's dead silence, and then he comes back, his shoulder's bleeding, but he's grinning like an idiot as he stumbles towards me.

He was about to say something...and then part of his face just exploded. Blood and brain and an eyeball flying at me as he hit the ground.

Zeke was standing at the doorway, gun pointed at Wren's body. He was leaning against the door frame, and when I got up to go to him I didn't understand why, but then he fell against me and I saw the blood that was coming from his side. Wren had shot him right in the kidney, and blood was just flowing out of him.

I couldn't carry him, he outweighed me and he couldn't hold himself up. I laid him against the wall and told him I was going to get help. All he said to me was to hurry back as I ran out.

...

He wasn't there when I got back.

I took Wren's car, had to drive two towns over just to fine a hospital that was still active. We drove back as fast as we could, but when we got there, there was plenty of blood and Wren's body still where he fell, but that camera and Zeke were gone. The police searched the basement and found more blood in another room, but that was it.

...

I don't know where Zeke is now. I don't know if he's dead or alive. If he's alive, then he's out there, doing what he's always done. If he's dead...well, at least he's finally at peace.

...

This is the last you'll hear from me. I won't be coming back. Once I get my affairs sorted, I'm leaving the country. I'm not going to say where I'm going; I don't want to be found. The farther I am from this, the better.

I'm truly sorry for what's been unleashed on you all.

Good-bye.

  1. ....Zeke....

    I guess...oh god, what else can we say?

    Goodbye Zeke...we'll miss you. So much.

  2. Unexpected. Well, it's a waiting game now. Probably Zeke will pop up again at some point. Or maybe the camera will, and it would show if he died.

  3. Here's hoping he's alive. The Boss needs a proper rival, dammit!

  4. We've thought he was dead before. I'm sure he'll come back eventually.

  5. Here's hoping he's alive. Please be alive Zeke...

  6. Holy shit... Zeke can't die, for Christ's sake. Not like this. Please, if there's a God out there, let him die while taking down that slender bastard, not getting shot by some ex-SWAT asshole...

    It'd be pointless to tell him good luck, since he's obviously not reading this... but still... I'll be praying.

  7. As I said with Konaa, we gotta see (or hear that someone saw) a body before we confirm that he is dead.

  8. Zeke...I hope you're okay. We're all rooting for you.

  9. Do not worry, Bluelight is keeping him nice and safe.

    ReplyDelete
  10. First... Bluelight... I dont know who you are, or who's side your on. But you're making enemies.

    Second. All we had for leaders, Zeke and M, are gone. The community will either spiral into extinction without them... or the directionless mob will prove even more powerful. Weirder things have happened.

    Third. Zekes not dead. He's survived more than that... and the Slenderman wouldn't let him go. A soul, even one that has angered him that much, cant be touched if it passes on through a hand besides His or its own. He would interfere before he let on mad man kill His target. I ramble. But my point is made.

    Good luck everyone.

    1. Just for the record, M is back, sort of anyways: http://uphighhopes.blogspot.com/.

      Also if you think they were the only two canidates you had for leaders, then you clearly haven't been paying attention to anyone besides the early veterans. They may not be as impressive in comparsion, but leaders have risen, in a sense.

      Finnally, everyone dies eventually. Maybe Zeke will outlive all of you, but there's just as good a chance that he's already dead. Coping with that is nessacary for your survival.

    1. So, what you're saying is that keeping one avatar and making your name a proper noun will somehow make you suffer a heart attack and die? Interesting story.

      By the way, I think I like this avatar the best. Reminds me of the UKF Dubstep logo.

  25. I know things look grim, but for all we know, he could be hiding out somewhere until he's well enough to make his next move. There's still hope you guys.

  26. I dunno.. that video seems pretty conclusive.. but then, it's Zeke, we can't rule out anything with that mad bastard. I remain vaguely optimistic, stupid as that may be.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I know it seems stupid, but I can't help thinking there's something more to this. There are just too many unanswered questions, you know? With everything he's been through, I find it hard to believe that this would be the thing that stops him.

  28. So that's how it went down. I've been out of the loop to damn long. None of the big wigs said Zee was out of commission I can't confirm he is alive or dead. I mean all you runners are dead. That's just fact. However zee...dunno I do know that whole show went ass backwards quickly. Mary, Mary quite contrary I doubt u'll see this but I'd stick to the road.

  32. "Don't let him win, Make the mohter f#!@$r work for his food.", I took that to heart man. So, Zeke, if you're seein' this comment, take that advice and survive.

  33. People, the mans dead. You wanted proof and you got a video of his lifeless body being dragged away by the Slender Man, what more do you want? This is the end, move along people, nothing to see here.

    4. Have you even read Zeke's blogs, Have you even actually paid attention? TRULY paid attention?

      Zeke was a young man in his twenties. Of course he looked young in the video. He WAS young. As for the gruff voice. Again, have you read the blog? His throat was severely damaged.

      I find myself strongly agreeing with Caged. The hope for people to survive even when evidence is admirable but foolish.

      But here. THIS. This is hope to an absolutely illogical extreme.

      He is dead, continue your fight and move on, that is how you will actually respect his memory.

      Not this inane babbling. It's no wonder a lot of the longer Runners are beginning to lose their faith, their will to survive.

    5. I've read Zeke's blogs. After going back and reading, I can own up to my mistake of his age. I've been under the impression that he was in his early thirties being as I took a long break from the first blog to this one and had forgotten his exact age.

      I remember Zeke's throat being damaged. I assumed the "gruff voice" along with "college student" because I forgot his age and figured it was some guy playing his death.

      Now that I see, that was Zeke Strahm. I apologize Freedomcaged and Overseer. I'm sorry.

  34. The psychology of the slender man is quite.....odd.When teenagers and other humans looked at the slenderman videos on youtube or looked at someones blog about him you humans panicked in fear he would find you.Well the slender man has been seen everywhere in the world and no one knows who started this myth.But you still fear somethimg that doesn't fit science.there is no creature that has no face but can still live.That's impossible.Name a creature that can grow multiple arms and make it's abdomen thin.There is none.There is nothing to fear but your own imagination.But the victims of the past went insane and died because they're weak minds could'nt think for themselves.All the photos of him?Photoshopped=faked.All the videos?Staged=faked.And the blogs?They were written for your mere entertainment.Remember boys and girls...the slender man is a parasite of the mind who is controlling a part of your brain and then you find yourself at war.With who?Not the slender man,but yourself.Remember....you can think for yourself.I was almost a victim to this fad,but I finally confronted myself and yelled "The nightmare is over!You don't exist!AAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!".He faded away and was just a memory.And know this.....if you see the slenderman,it's just your head(imagination) trying to attack the Twin Towers(sanity) you own.By the way.....the slenderman is just a montage of past or present movie characters,you know like a reference.And all those "records" of children being kidnapped by him,were just papers stolen from a police station and then the amatuer wrote on those papers the date,crime,etc. was just trying to make it look real.

  38. We are Anonymous. We are Legion. We are the Faceless. Voice of the Voiceless. Knowledge is free. We have Awoken. Our eyes are open. We think independently. We stand as One. We do not forgive. We do not forget. Expect us.

    Anonymous is a non-central gathering of people all around the world with a view to establish freedom and social-justice in the world. Therefore there are many different interest groups of Anonymous.
    And this site/group is created to expose the sinister plans of the Illuminati who want to establish the New World Order. We WILL prevent this. We are Legion.

    This project is called ‘Operation Mayhem 2012‘ also Project Mayhem 2012 short PM2012
    Klick here for the official Announcement Page.




    Chances are big that you’ve heard of Anonymous. In the last couple of months Anonymous was mentioned in the media very often, like hacking paypal and supporting Wikileaks. Anonymous has gotten bigger. And the power of Anonymous also has risen. Anonymous did the 2 biggest cyber attacks on commercial and governmental websites in history. Sony, Paypal, Mastercard, Visacard any many other institutions, organisations and companies experienced the power of anonymous. Even the sites of the white house. the FBI and many other governmental sites were hacked (update of facts:19th January 2012).



    Operation / Project Mayhem 2012

    It is the BIGGEST Operation of Anonymous ever. Its a multi-layer project accomplished step by step. There will be a big attack on 5th September 2012. and the final attacks starting at 12-12-2012. But Operation Mayhem 2012 is already initiiated. Operations like #opmegaupload, #oprevenge etc. have already succeeded.

    Operation Mayhem 2012 is divided into 5 Steps:

    Step1. Hack to send media message
    Step2. Make them protest
    Step3. Make them aware of Illuminati rulership
    Step4. Post Illuminati locations
    Step5. Call final world protest,and create war Final step- overpower Illuminati and take over the world.



    We try to reach people to make them aware of the Illuminati rulership and their plans on establishing the New World Order with all their might (project Blue Bleam, Fake Alien attack, controlling the Music Industry & Hollywood, controlling the Banks all over the world, controlling the Media and so on). The most important part we already won is the control of the Internet. With SOPA (stop online piracy act bill) they tried to take control, but WE FOUGHT BACK. The Internet is our most powerful tool and weapon. We are working against the Illuminati and their NEW WORLD ORDER. Our might is bigger than any other organisation. We CAN and are ABLE to open the eyes of the World.

    Fight against the New World Order. Start to support Project Mayhem 2012 KLICK HERE

    We have to rescue the World. We are anonymous. We are Legion.

    Who is Anonymous in detail?



    YOU are Anonymous. He is Anonymous. She is Anonymous. We are Anonymous.

    Anonymous is not a group, but rather an Internet gathering.

    Both Anonymous and the media that is covering it are aware of the percieved dissent between individuals in the gathering. This does not, however, mean that the command structure of Anonymous is failing for a simple reason: Anonymous has a very loose and decentralized command structure that operates on ideas rather than directives.
    We do not believe that a similar movement exists in the world today and as such we have to learn by trial and error. We are now in the process of better communicating some core values to the individual atoms that comprise Anonymous – we also want to take this opportunity to communicate a message to the media, so that the average Internet Citizen can get to know who we are and what we represent. Anonymous is not a group of hackers. We are average Internet Citizens ourselves and our motivation is a collective sense of being fed up with all the minor and major injustices we witness
    every day.

  42. I never heard of this until earlier when I was reading on Seeking Truth to here, The Mystic. There is a lot of shit going on here and Zeke, if you are dead, at least you went out with a bang I guess and saved Mary, even if you knew you didn't have to. There are a lot of people that care for ya, me included even if I found this a little late. Hope you are alive though and possibly well. Message us all when you can and give us that hope that you are breathing and still fighting like a son of a bitch.

  43. He seems to get confused if you recite Antigonish as a mantra. I assume the content throws him off. But be warned, if he isn't trying to kill you yet, if he's just watching, using this trick seems to anger him and make you a target. Only use if you are already in lifethreatening danger.

    For reference.

    As I walked upon the stair,
    I met a man who wasn’t there
    He wasn’t there again today
    Oh how I wish he’d go away

    When I came back last night at three
    The man was waiting there for me
    But when I looked around the hall
    I couldn’t see him there at all

  49. I was hoping to find him alive. Damn. But still, it makes sense to leave something here, to let people know that it's not quite over yet, right?

    My name is Kev Elliot, and myself and my girlfriend Thia are very much alone, right now. We are experiencing visitations by the Slender Man, and have recently been attacked by masked assailants - though I drove them off with little effort. They seemed oddly conflicted about stabbing me, for some reason.

    Look, my point is that I came here looking to see if he was still active, and he isn't. The Mystic appears dead. Can anyone else help me? Please?
