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.

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” =))
Haha I was in class and looked behind me to see a fat kid eating candy
When I figured it out, I haven’t looked behind me for the past half hour.
This is amazing. The story, the hidden message and the author.
Oh my god… I’m almost crying right now.
Oh god the wall has been watching me for all this time.
freaking scary when its night and your back is facing a fricken window……i just akwardly laughed to myself.
I’m trying to say something witty but all of my wittiness has already been claimed by other comments.
I may have just used my screen as a mirror to look without turning around.
Great now I don’t wanna even turn. But loved the story. Shirt and sweet and to the point.
I looked behind me and saw me. so i looked at me looking behind me.
Wowwww. So clever. ;o
I did look around. You just have to. Brilliant, keep on writing 🙂
I looked behind me and saw my mom standing in the doorway
I almost had a heart attack ogawd
Whether you decide to turn around or not turn around tells a great deal about your personality and way of thinking.
I read this during midnight.
I slowly stood up and walked sideways towards the door.
Fucking creepy dude, 5/5.
LOL…awesome that my most reviled coworker was behind me.
I looked behind me and i see my chihuahua just staring at me ,he’s such a creep
What is behind me D:, THE WALL!!! NOOOOOOOO!!!!!!
As Macklemore would say: this is fucking awesome
I loved the twist at the ending. If you like twist endings you guys should go check my pasta its called the breeze!
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?
One of the best short creepypastas on this site. Well written. 4/5
I looked behind me and there was a mirror.
My face was lit up.
I just about shat myself.
Corto pero excelente Lolllll :3
this scared me LIKE WHOOOOOOO 10/5
There’s a girl cracking her knuckles behind me. Thank’s school! That really gave me shivers though, good job!

HOLY HELL!!!!!!!! Oh, it`s just a wall. Great job ; )
The guy reading this really shouldn’t have turned around
Wonderful pasta. -looks behind me and gasps- le wall has been watching me this whole time… How could you wall D:
oh my god that’s so creepy. I looked behind me to see my sister with a knife. I almost died!!! lol
I like how it says the author is “You” that’s hilarious.
I am NOT looking behind me ever again ;-;
Wow, this is really good, very creepy
That was good, 5 star from me. I actually looked behind me, but it was just a fricking wall.
HOLY BALLS THE WALL AHHHHHH
Wow, that was creepy. I almost crapped myself when I looked behind me and saw a huge spider on my wall. 9/10.
I admire you for creating such an effective story that is so fucking short! i looked behind and its nightime, behind me is the window with some crappy blinds where you could barely see anyone if they peeked in…suprise attack, total advantage…..creeepy
I liked that special inclusion.
I loved it! Hahaha im in class when i read it so i turned around like a crazy person and pointed at the wall saying leave me alone! XD my friend just stared at me and she thought i finally lost it.
This was so cool! I really liked this 🙂
I looked at my reflection in my computer screen… does it count??
Turn around and see my aunts doll staring at me and I scream making everyone else scream in the living room. Great job You
I looked behind me and saw my boss, i almost pissed myself xD
OH MY FUCKING…. reading this at midnight in the dark…. i actually turned around and saw darkness XD
I read this while home alone and I haven’t looked behind me for 20 minutes, not even when I went to get water from the kitchen!!
is it a problem that there is a mirror behind me
Looked behind me and saw my knife. My brother didn’t last long. ;3
5/5 even though this uses the “turn around to scare” cliche. I didn’t turn around because I use the screen as a mirror. I was in the back of the class when I read this and just saw a wall. This is a wall who is behind me two periods because it is the back wall for my 7th and 1st period classes, since the classrooms are back to back.
I fuckin love that, that little hidden message…but ya know, it’s not like I’m already scared of looking behind me…let alone closing my eyes in the shower with the fear the lights will flicker and I’ll open my eyes to see a barley recognizable human thing trying to kill me….but you know, let’s just add to my list of fears haha……ok
All of my plushies are behind me.
*Looks behind and sees……* ” Wall!!! Why are you staring at me, I know I’m hot but damnn I didn’t know I was that hot” XD pshhhh I’m taken sorry
This pasta get me freaked out a bit.
I read this at school and i turned around. My teacher was standing there and I screamed. The whole class thought I was crazy.
Very nice. Very clever.
short sweet simple and totally creative. I totally enjoyed it. couldn’t look behind me though as I am lying down with blankets over my head because it’s cold in here. kinda glad I can’t look. Then things may have gotten too creepy. Great pasta
Turned around and there was a cute guy behind me. Not a bad surprise
So I become a wall in the future? Guess there’s no need for school anymore huh
I turned around and my sister was reading.
Uhhh I didn’t really get the message cuz the formatting is weird on my Ipad……
Oh now I get it… Derp
I’m in class. There’s a cute boy with a big ass.
Ha! My chair has a taller backrest than me! Get rekt future self! Whats behind me is a comfortable leather seat!
Well, I turned around and saw my cat. Staring at my big fat plush doughnut, like it was possessed. Man I swear there’s something up with that cat.
the ending was the best part
I read this and one of my friends was behind me so when I turned around I screamed and punched her in the face. I looked like a paranoid freak XD
OH NO!!!!! The little crawl space door is watching me!!! HELP! LOL
HAHAHA!!!! awesome!! 😀
Great Job! 🙂
I saw my dog chasing his tail… eh?
Omg it was so scary nice 99/5 I don’t care if impossible
The creepiest thing about what’s behind me is my boyfriend sleeps with his eyes open. Lol

i turned around a saw a porcelain doll with black eyes and heavy makeup staring back at me. I jumped so much. I loved this creepypasta so much! all time fav! Keep up the good work man! 🙂
Freaky!!! I still haven’t looked behind me…
5/5 the message was great! It was very creative writing, keep up the good work!
OH GOD…. a microwave and a poster were plotting against me…. good thing i prought a lighter and a sledgehammer to class with me…. time to get to work
i read this late at night .. in my room with the lights turned off and i did look behind to see shadows reflecting from my lap top screen light .. i almost fell off my chair cause i thought someone was actually there
I turn my back to see one of my window panel is open . btw i’m read this at night . How f**k up am I?
I spun around… and broke some of the cartilage in my nose because I was lying on my bed while reading this and violently spun, aggressively sliding my face, specifically my nose, across the bed xD
Good read, not scary but I did manage a chuckle
I don’t know if it’s worth it… Looking behind me means I won’t die, but not looking will drive me crazy… I have to… *looks back* AAAHHHHHHHH IT’S A WALL A WAAAAAAALLL
Ha, i looked behind me to find one of my dog’s, her name is Princess, laying down on the couch.
I like that the Original Author is You. Hahaha! Kudos!
i looked behind me and saw my friend reading pokemon mangas
Pastas like this are the reason that i crabwalk with my back to the wall at night, all throughout the house.
omg! My sister has a HUGE Dora doll and it was looking at me………….. oh and btw, it says ‘don’t look behind you’
I looked behind me and saw a dude playing magic the gathering
I am sitting in my room reading this. My walk-in closet is directly behind me.
