The Message

Don’t dismiss this outright as the work of some raving lunatic. There’s some sense to this story, if you’ll just hear me out…

Look, we all wonder if time travel is possible, right? Well let me tell you something… it is. I’m from the future, actually. I know you probably don’t believe that, but seriously, I’m from the future. It’s a really great thing; getting to see the past, watching events unfold.. stuff like that. We know more now than we ever would.

Behind all the fun, though, there is a more serious aspect. We aren’t supposed to go into our own lifetime, and we are NEVER allowed to contact our past selves. Let me tell you, I’m breaking that rule right now. Yes, kid, you’re talking to yourself. Your future self. I’m going to be executed for this, but you know what? I accept that. I’m preventing something by talking to you that is WORSE than death. I can’t tell you outright what to do, because the filters would catch it. This is the closest I can get, trust me. I can, however, send a little message.

You should probably read the first word of every paragraph, now.

Original Author: You

    When I figured it out, I haven’t looked behind me for the past half hour.

    Probably a little pathetic that I looked behind me.

    This completely fucks with you when you’re sitting in a dark room, alone, with no light but the computer screen; and then you read this.. I actually looked behind me.

    A shiver goes down my spine everytime I read this. And I have to look behind me, otherwise it won’t go away XD
    And I love how the Author is “You” =))

    I’m trying to say something witty but all of my wittiness has already been claimed by other comments.

    Whether you decide to turn around or not turn around tells a great deal about your personality and way of thinking.

    in the back of my mind, I picture someone reading this, then turning around to look out the window and actually seeing someone out there in the darkness

    Hmm….if you think about it, there is something behind the author. A strange way to think about it is this, perhaps, from the future, SOMETHING followed him. Now it is tailing him. Here’s the real question, once he is gone, who’s next?
