I haven’t been sleeping much anymore. My two room apartment has a window right next to my bed. I’ve started to notice something odd about the people going by. Have you ever seen how video game characters don’t seem to walk? They just glide forward while doing a walking animation, like a reverse moonwalk. That’s what they do, they don’t tip forward with each step, and they keep their torsos completely straight and legs moving beneath them while drifting past my window.
The other thing I find weird about them is that all of them are very, very smartly dressed. All the women wear long victorian looking dresses with puffy, usually red or blue short sleeves. The men all wear tuxedos with pants that go very far up their torsos. Some of the older men have short black canes with metal balls on the top.
They walk by my window every day, about two per minute, their timing not changing when the sky goes dark.
There is still one thing I can’t quite figure out though.
I live on the sixteenth floor.

i dont get it… Keep at it though.
oh i get it O.o
Wow. The whole time I was just thinking “ok a haunted house” and then the end was like a slap in the face. Awesome.
Would be good under the “mind-fuck” tag
Really enjoyed this pasta. 4/5
I really don’t get the sixteenth floor part?
OMG. MIND BLOWN!
Some people don’t get this, it’s trying (from what I can see) to lead us into thinking it’s a weird street then. It says “I live on the sixteenth floor” meaning that the people walking past are all ghosts from the Victorian era it’s not that hard people>:( also great pasta makes tons of sense and is straight to the point 4.9/5 🙂
Wow. wasn’t expecting the last part tho
Wow, that ending made me go; wait, what??
Mindfuckk. I cant even expect the last part. Haha i hope it can be longer. Really enjoyed thisss
That was nice, short and creepy! Loved it 10/10 breads.
at first i imagined a normal house with haunted backyard but at the end it was like a fear shock
I kind of thought the end was clichéd
I will upload a video telling your creepypasta, don’t worry I will post the Author and original story in the description.
Get out of that apartment.
am i the only one who got this before he said about sixtenth floor
I love it! Short, sweet and right to the point. I also like the mystery behind it! Great story.
16 century = 16th floor
It’s like the 2 second horror story, but longer. I love it. I thought it was going to be longer, but then it just stopped,leaving the rest to the audience to decide.
wouldnt it be creepier if they stopped in the middle of the window and stared at the narrator for a few seconds before turning and walking away?
Nice understated micropasta with an unsettling twist at the end, unfortunately it was spoiled by the illogical penultimate sentence, “There is still one thing I can’t quite figure out though.”. See, written that way it implies that the earlier noted incongruities about the pedestrians had been resolved, which they hadn’t. A simple change to ” There’s one other thing I can’t figure out either ” or something to that effect would fix that.
I get it , they’re actually ghosts walking on air by his window
That was fucking shit it was so. God damn horrible dayum u need to stop writing ur so fucking horrible at it
An almost perfect micropasta by any means .
The only thing that gets me of the (pastatrain) in this one is is when you say :
”There is still one thing I can’t quite figure out though.”
maybe you could say :
There’s one other thing I can’t figure out either ” like Inimicus stated , or somthing else?
Very cool… Love the twist. 10/10
For a moment i thought HE was trapped with them on another realm without him realizing.
THIS PASTA IS SO WELL DONE IT’S ALMOST BURNT I LOVE IT
Nice, Its very intriguing
I loved this , I thought he was like a introverted gamer at first seeing the people “gliding across” then when he said the 16th floor part I was like oh he’s actually seeing ghosts
Some Creepypastas are just better short and sweet than long and horrifying, and I think this is a perfect example of that. Good work, keep at it!
