Have you ever gotten a glimpse of something out of the corner of your eye? A simple movement caught in your peripheral vision. Most will simply dismiss this as a shadow brought about by a flickering candle, or perhaps a pet jumping down from a piece of furniture. Ninety-nine out of a hundred times, these people are right.
But then there’s that one elusive sight. It can easily be explained by the above conditions, but something feels wrong about it. A chill down your spine, a slight pain in your side. Maybe even a complete blanking of your mind, only to recede moments later.
Should any of these symptoms be felt, there may be cause for worry. Our peripheral vision is designed to catch motion, even in the dark. This was used to defend against predators in our early days, and as with many aspects of our human nature, it has remained, but weakened.
This view out of the corner of our eyes still alerts us to danger, and although predators have dropped on the list of dangers we may face today, they still exist. Should you ever feel that queer chill in your back, try not to focus on that shadow you saw in the corner of your eye. It might be better not to see.

That I like sucks seeing the damn shadow though XD
Shit, it’s three AM and I read that. I am really not that smart
eight out of ten
good job… well written 🙂
Well written, almost true!
It’s nice :). Well thought out, but I’ve seen this before
Interesting. Although I feel like this idea has been done just a little too much. Take an overused idea and make it your own. Don’t follow the usual trend.
I stay home alone for about three hours almost every day after school so tHANK YOU. 10/10 story though 🙂
That was a pretty good story. Well written. 🙂
I was going to wright a creepypasta about the same thing.. ;(
The ‘queer chill in my back’ is a lube covered dick.
This pasta turned out more cool since everyone has felt that at least once in their lives. It’ll be getting 5/5 stars from me. This pasta totally describes me because I lie awake in bed till 2 AM every night and I’m forced to keep changing sides every minute (till I fall asleep) as I’m sure that something’s out there which is watching me from my back.

It makes it worse that the original author is “unknown.” Whether that is the name of the account that submitted this or it is actually unknown, it helps. Maybe my phone is glitching though…
Well-written, but fairly average tbh. Least it was original
the first time i ever read this i was on my tablet in the middle of the night and i thought i saw something. I FREAKED OUT.
Sounded more like a wiki article about your eyes with a twist at the end. Mediocre at best.
