The shadows, a shape with the absence of light, literally and metaphorically they are pure darkness.
I don’t know where they come from or what they are; interdimensional, demons, or something unimaginably worse. I see them everywhere. This is one of their instances:
They were following me; they had been stalking me for days. “He’s coming, he’s coming.” And finally, “He’s here!”
I was near the front of the class, and I was trying to figure out what to do. To slip out and protect myself or to stay and protect the class.
I keep on getting in and out of my seat until I finally made the decision. I had to tell the class to get out of here; he was too dangerous
I raised my hand to warn the professor and said “I need to let you know...let you know that he’s here. We all need to get out of here so he doesn’t hurt anybody.”
He replied “Do you need to get out of here?”
“No, I must stay. I am the only one that can stop him.”
“Well we are going to finish”
They didn’t understand the danger that they were in. If they wouldn’t protect themselves then I would have to protect them. So I said to the shadow:
“I’ll face you now, but leave them alone.”
An instant later I felt him invade my mind causing great pain. I felt like my life was being sucked out of me as I stood frozen.
I blacked out, and the next thing I remember is that everybody in the classroom was gone; they escaped, but police were there because someone reported me.
I had a “friend” in that class that I really liked at the time. She just left me there and didn’t care enough to help me.
None of those people helped me, but I think they escaped because of my painful sacrifice.
