John Reason was a kid who lived in Tarry Town, New York with his Navy Seal dad and his Italian mom. He didn't have much friends though, because his mom was the daughter of the Mafia boss, this made him kind of an outcast. But his family was rich though, so the kids didn't care about him being an outcast, all they just wanted was his dad's money. This one kid decided that he should be his best friend, so he was friendly to him, despite being a bully to other kids at his school. But it didn't end to well for him, he got beaten up by John and he nearly lost an arm to him. Kids started to like him because of what he did, even though his father disapproved of him beating up that bully. John was called a hero, he called himself a loser; because he wanted to break that kids arm so badly, but couldn't do. He was home schooled after that by his father, and was smarter than any of the other kids. He was pretty well known for being the smartest, most athletic kid you've ever seen. His father took him on trips across the world, some of the kids thought he was going to places so that he could learn martial arts from some of the best masters in the world, John later confirmed this when he beat up 10 thugs that had knifes and guns. He was certainly the talk of the town, people regarded him as also being polite, smart, strong, handsome, etc.
Although people loved him, he didn't love himself. He hated being himself, he just wanted to be normal like everyone else. He was autistic, and was a cry baby. He had PDD, which meant he was immature and had to be cared for until he was ready for the world, which some of the kids thought he would never be, and when ever he saw something sad happen in a movie, he'd cry for hours. He wanted to be like everyone else, but he knew wouldn't, so his father convinced him that it was okay to be different, it worked, for a little while. He lived a good life, until that one day when he had just turned 17; the day his parents died. They were driving home after bringing him to his favorite restaurant, when an drunk driver riding an eighteen-wheeler collided with the front of thier car, causing both of John's parents to die in the car crash, John had only a couple of bruises, but was scared for life. He literally got both his parents bodies out of the destroyed car, and kept hugging them, never letting go, even when the police told him to. They had to bring him to the hospital while he was holding his mom and dad's heads to his chest, crying the entire way.
After that, John lost it. He didn't let anyone come near his house, his money, and himself. He kept crying and crying, begging for God to bring his parents back. But nothing happened, not one single thing happened. He started to go insane after that, believing that his parents weren't dead, but were killed when they were cremated. He started going after people who he thought killed his parents, but he ended up calming down and accepting that his parents were indeed dead. When he was 18, they read his father's will, which said to give all of the money to him. But he didn't want it, he wanted his parents back. Although, when the Mafia came and told him that they would take good care of his father's business if he gave them 50% of the money he had, he refused to make the deal. His father always told him to never trust Mafia thugs, so he followed his dead dad's advice. John instead gave his money to people he trusted the most, and charities, this made the Mafia pissed at him. They wanted that money, and they were willing to do anything for it. So they tried to kill John.
When John was 23, he was driving home one night from his favorite restaurant when two black cars went straight past him. He honked his horn in anger which didn't do very much, but it made him feel better. Suddenly, John's car was pressed against the railing, and flipped into the forest below. John survived with little injuries, but the Mafia was about to change that. The Mafia went after him, they ran down the mountain after him, trying to catch him before he ran away. Unfortunately for them, John was already running deeper into the forest. John started crying and begging God to do something to save him. Suddenly, John noticed a man in a suit watching him from afar. John saw that that the man had some sort of mask on, cause he didn't his face. John started to run towards him, hoping that he would safe him from the Mafia. "PLEASE," yelled John "You have to help me, I'm being chased by thugs and I need some help taking them down." The man just tilted his head. John started to notice that he was hearing static and was about to faint, but he fought through this and preceded to run towards the man. "HEY," John yelled again, "If you want something, I'll give it to you after you help me take care of these thugs." The Mafia thugs were getting closer. "I'll give you anything," Yelled John.
The man spoke "Anything.....?"
"YES, ANYTHING, just please help," John yelled back. The man suddenly grew two times as tall as John and walked towards the thugs. The Mafia tried shooting the it, but in return, nothing happened. The "thing" ripped apart every single last one of the Mafia thugs, until there was nothing left of them. John was surprised, he never thought a single thing could rip through an entire force of enemies like that, except his father. "Dad," said John "Is that....is that you dad?"
"My name is Slender human," he said this in a dark foreboding voice, "And you said you would give me anything, am I correct?"
"Yeah," said John with a weak voice.
"How about your eternal service to me," said Slender.
John was already at the point of crying since this "Slender" wasn't his dad, but now he started to cry. He was reminded of all the pain he went through, all the suffering, and God didn't give him back the only thing he wanted in life: His parents.
"You want something that can not be given back, you need it, so how about this, if you work for me as my proxy, I will give you a new family, how is that deal?" Slender said in a reassuring voice.
"It...I....accept," said John. He didn't want his life back, he wanted a new life, and if this was the only way, then he was going to take it.
Slender responded "Good, come with me 'Tears', your new life, starts now."
John went with this "Slender" guy to a deepest part of the woods that had nothing but dead trees and taller slender ones. John was curious about why Slender would bring him here, was it going to be his new home, that he didn't know. When they reached a clearing, Slender suddenly grabbed John by the hands and burned the mark on both of his hands. The pain only lasted for a second, but it still hurt in John's case. Slender then let him go and told him to stay where he was, then left him there. John waited about 10 minutes for Slender to return, thinking about all the crap he got himself into, and how he was never going to get his old life back, and also how he was abandoning his father's last dying wish in that will that his father wrote.
He then saw Slender return with something that looked like a mask."Put this on Tears, now." Slender demanded of him to wear a mask, seemed simple. The mask was a light gray that had 2 black sockets where the eyes were, and below each eye, had what looked like a blue line. John was thinking it looked stupid, but he wore it anyway. "Now, come with me," said Slender "We have much work to do."
