Even though quite confusing, I'll try my best to explain.
I'm 16 years old and I'm afraid of the dark. But not the dark itself, I'm afraid of what comes with the darkness. The reason, I believe, comes when I was a kid, used to see things, strange things, sometimes even named them: the white man, the horse man, the bride and the most terrifying of them, The Boogies. I used to have a current nightmare of a house filled with those things that I never saw but the eyes, a red strange glow, and they never seemed to notice me.
One day, followed by the one where I saw a completely white man with dark eyes sitting in my room's couch, I had another dream with the boogies, but this time they notice and just stood there in the house looking at me, as did the white man, and the bride, and the horse man, and every other thing I used to see. That's when Los came in.
When I was 8 or 7, all those things stopped to happen. I rarely saw any of those things again, but they gave place to a constant companion called Los, neither of us know what he is or why are we attached, but he has been here for so much time it feel like a lifetime. He know things I don't and talk a lot, a very pleasant companion to be honest, but it seems that I am the only one who hear him, even taught other people can talk, they cannot hear his answers.
