Him by Dayne Svendsen

Walking in the dark was never a problem, until I saw him, the man almost stereotypically dressed in black lurking in the shadows of every alley I’d pass by on my way home through the city. I saw him everywhere, I had to tell someone; of course, the doctors told me I was ill. Yet, no matter what they did, he just wouldn’t seem to vanish. One night, he entered my room and crept up my bed with a knife, this was the usual by now. Though this time, he plunged the knife into my throat, and everything went black.
