The Cult of the Shadows

The Cult of the Shadows

I never thought I would be telling a story like this. I mean, I’ve lived in this city my entire life and nothing ever seemed out of the ordinary. But then again, things aren’t always as they seem.

It all started when I was walking home from work one night. It was late and the streets were empty. That’s when I saw a group of people huddled together in the park. They were dressed in dark robes and chanting something I couldn’t quite make out. I didn’t want to get involved, so I quickly walked away.

But that was just the beginning. Over the next few weeks, strange things started happening around the city. People were disappearing, and there were rumors of occultist activity. Some even said that there was a cult operating within the city.

I didn’t want to believe it, but then I started seeing things for myself. I saw strange symbols etched into the walls of buildings and heard strange whispers in the night. I knew something was wrong, but I didn’t know what to do.

One night, I was walking home from a bar when someone grabbed me from behind. They put a bag over my head and dragged me into a van. I was terrified and had no idea what was going on.

When they finally took off the bag, I found myself in a dark room with candles burning all around me. The people from the park were there, along with others dressed in robes. They started chanting and performing some kind of ritual.

I was paralyzed with fear, but then something strange happened. A figure appeared in the center of the room, surrounded by a bright light. It was like nothing I had ever seen before. The cultists started bowing down and worshiping it.

I knew then that I had to get out of there. I managed to break free and ran as fast as I could back to my apartment. From that day on, I never left my home after dark.

I don’t know what happened to that cult, but I never saw them again. I still hear strange whispers in the night and see strange symbols etched into the walls. But I know that I’m safe as long as I stay inside.

The city may seem like a normal place, but there are dark forces at work. You never know what’s lurking in the shadows.
