A lot has happened in the past few days, mainly the fact that I got very very sick. I went back to school a few days ago, and caught the cold that's going around. Natalie was fine, and denies running away. There is no police record of a visit to my house, and my mom says I just ran away. When I got home there were a few operator symbols carved into my desk which I scratched out. Thankfully my mom didn't ask what they were. I still don't feel too good, and have a pretty bad cough. Natalie almost broke up with me for "running a way in such a fucking stupid way" and because she "didn't go anywhere." Whatever.
She's stopped talking about slenderman, and that either means he's given up or she's just not telling me as much "for my own good." I have only seen him once in the past few days. He was standing in the forest behind my old middle school...nobody else saw him...I'm pretty sure I'm going crazy.
