Silence is Unnerving

     Still haven't seen it. I guess that should make me feel better, but it doesn't. I feel like someone is always standing over my shoulder...watching me. But, I guess that comes with the job. Better get used to it, I guess. Although, I've always preferred to see the dangers around me.

     Anyways fun conversation I had recently with my special friend. Her: "What's with...that?" She pointed at the table near us.   Me: "What, the baseball?"   Her: "No..."   Me: "Oh, the phone?"   Her: "No, you know what I'm talking about."   Me: "The gun? It's just a precaution, after all, there have been...criminals who've evaded the police. I'd prefer to be...prepared."  She just rolled her eyes, and looked uncomfortable. I thought to myself, smooth work, you idiot.

    And some of my personal rules that I follow:
  1. Safety is...nonexistent. It can go anywhere, so don't fool yourself into safety...it doesn't exist.
  2. Following #1: always know a way out. In other words, plan your escape route.
  3. Also following #1: always, always have a weapon within reach. That thing may not be easy to hurt, but its followers are.
  4. Don't trust others too easily. Make someone prove themselves, but always keep distance.
  5. Always be vigilant.
  6. Know your surroundings.
  7. Try to maintain a semblance of normalcy if you can't run.
  8. Try not to involve people who have no idea of the situation.
  9. Knowledge can be a double-edged sword. It can be useful to defeating your enemies, but it can also give Mr. Tall power.
 Hopefully, those rules will help.

     
     Lastly, I did make a post last week. So, if you're interested, read it.


Until Next Time,

Nothing New

     Well, I still haven't seen Mr. Slim. It's been so long that I almost forgot about the constant danger. Almost. If it wasn't for those nightmares. To elaborate further on my 'dream' from last week, I think it may be a premonition of sorts. I'll explain. Sometimes, I have dreams that are 100% realistic. An exact set of events will happen, then months to years after I had the dream, those events will occur. A Déjà Vu, if you will.
An example: back when I was in the 3rd grade, I had a dream of talking to someone in lunch who I considered a great friend. We talked about a funny prank that had happened to another of our friends. One of the supervising teachers also decided to talk to us. At the time, I had never known or seen that person before. But, about a year later, he moved into town and started coming to my school. He and I eventually had that exact conversation about the same exact thing. Some would call it coincidence. I disagree, after all I am being stalked by an entity that, according to every known law of physics, shouldn't exist. I think that the 'dream' from last week may be a possible future. In that dream, I knew every one of those people; their names, blogs (if they had one), their aliases (like my use of 'Carter'), their stories, how we met, and there was also some terrible event that had occurred. It had forced me to run. I can't  remember any specifics right now, but if I were to hear their names or see them in person, I would know it.

     Another thing, it has been almost a year since anyone's heard or seen word of M or Bondie. I think it's safe to assume that they're gone. I hope that, since they are most likely dead, their deaths were quick and painless. I also hope that they didn't face the one fate that is worse than death...

     That's it for now, I'd like to know what you all think. I have this upcoming week off, so I can respond to any comments.

Stay Safe,
Carter

Good News...Bad News

     Well, I'm still alive. That's some good news. I also haven't seen Mr. Tall Thin and Faceless either. That's a bit unsettling, as it definitely doesn't help the paranoia. I hope you all are fine. And I hope that things stay this quiet for a while. If nothing happens this upcoming week, then I'll change my post schedule to every other week.

     Now for the bad news. There's been an issue that I've tried typing up for the last month. Every time that I'm about to, though, I forget about it. It's very disturbing news. For the last few months, I've had dreams...dreams that involve a certain 'friend' in a suit. And, every time afterwards, I wake up with an injury. The list of the ones that I can remember is: cuts on knees, bruises on arms near shoulders, and tiny pinpricks that vaguely remind me of getting shots. I hate needles, by the way. To top those off, I've also had an increase in paranoia, headaches, and a horrible cough. The cough I have had since I was a little kid. But, it went away about two years ago; it's back now.

     The latest dream was interesting: I was part of a team. Our goal was to track down a certain 'man' and all of his 'accomplices.' You should know who I'm talking about. One part that really stuck out, though, (and the only part that I can remember clearly) was in a carnival of sorts. My team and I were unarmed. It was nighttime, so we had flashlights. As we were searching, my partner and I (we separated into pairs to cover more area) kept seeing silhouettes of people running about, from corner to corner. Too fast for us to really see them. We were investigating a building when another one of the pairs called us outside to the alleyway. There was a dead proxy. He was carrying about 5 or so pistols. I passed them out to the other members, and we kept searching. Eventually, the sun rose and we met in a concourse area. There were other, normal people there. We were discussing our findings when a couple of proxies came dashing through the crowd and into a nearby building. We followed, but found that the proxies went into a pipeline that we weren't prepared to enter. I left two members there to keep watch and went outside with my partner. We were going over our gear. I remember this part the clearest. I had an HK USP pistol, my partner had a Beretta M92. We both had cameras, flashlights, and two-way radios. After that, there were many gunshots. We entered a gunfight. I eventually was shot. That's when I woke up. Another thing I remember was that the team members were people who I've never met before. Not sure if that's important or not, but I figure that I should be honest with you guys.

     No other news for now. Hopefully, it'll stay that way. Stay safe everyone, and keep fighting the good fight.

Until Next Time,
Carter

Danger Shows its Face(less) Self

     Sorry about the late post. Things are a bit busy, I'll also miss next Friday's (the 8th of March). So, a few things have happened. The most important being a conversation that I had with a friend. We were on a bus and talking when he suddenly stopped and looked out the window. When I asked him about it, he said, "I thought I saw something...but it was nothing." Normally, I would disregard that, but I am under near (if not) constant surveillance by Tall, Thin, and Faceless. So, I'm hoping that it really was nothing.

     And to respond to what Med recently said on his/her blog (sorry, but I don't know which you are, no offense). Link to blog: Med's blog I'll tell you all a bit about my 'informants.' So, I'm not really the leader, if that's what some of you thought. We don't really have any leaders. What we do is this: we have people who have a lot of experience, they are on a 'council' of sorts, and determine how much info we release, and who we let join. I am on that 'council.' I was invited about 1 month after the first sighting, then I made this blog at about 6 months after the first sighting. As you can see, they we have a knack for finding those being followed, even when they don't make blogs. This next bit of info took a while for our 'council' to decide on releasing. We have a simple goal: stop Mr. Slim's attacks on humans. Ideally, we'd like to co-exist with it peacefully, but we aren't completely stupid; if we have to, we will kill it. We want to preserve humanity as a whole, while retaining our own humanity. Now, before some of you ask to join, you need to remember: we all have to agree to a new person before they can receive information. It's a precaution that I wish we didn't need.

     There's also more about our 'network,' but I can't share any of it on this blog. Let's just say that we have ways of finding information that you can't even imagine.

Until Next Time,
Carter
