Hello there, I've never really written anything before. But after what happened I have to get it off my chest. My best friend since kindergarten died a few months ago.

He was found dead in his apartment. Everyone just shrugged it off as "another junkie ODing". But I knew him enough to know that wasn't the case. Not like I could do anything about it. No one listens to me anyway. His name was Edward.

Recently I decided to look at some old photos with the two of us. For old time's sake. In a way, I'm still keeping him alive. Even if it's just preserving those memories.
I looked at a birthday photo of Edward. We must have been 10 at the time. It was one of the best birthday parties I've been to. There he was with his Darth Vader birthday cake.

Though I noticed something odd. Something I've never seen until now. Outside of the window stood a grey blurry figure. I couldn't figure out any of its features. It was just… there.

I was unnerved, to say the least, but I kept looking. It was a photo of both of us at graduation. But to my surprise, the figure was there again. Behind a group of people. I could kind of make out to black spots that could've been its eyes. I looked at another. It was of the both of us playing in my backyard.

We were pretending to both be Spider-Man. We both had those web shooter toys that shot silly string. Those were good times and there it was. Looking at us over the fence. The blurry man.

I was terrified at that point. I don't know what that thing was. I had to see if it was in any other photos. Paranoia had set in as I looked frantically through the many photos. I quickly found out that the figure only appeared in photos of Edward.

Something in my brain clicked then.
I now know why in the few days before his death he'd constantly look over his shoulder.

-P
