A Conversation.

I barely slept last night. Probably due to the police search lights shining into my windows while they were packing up.

The police are walking out of this case. I heard them say they wouldn't help us anymore. They won't help us search, they won't put out a public announcement. All they would do was file the missing person report. My God, I hate them.

I went back into James's room this morning. His teddy bear was lying on the ground. He's had it since he was 3.

Yesterday, my parents, a few of our neighbors, and I circled the property looking for him. Nothing. Not a single clue. I was paired up with a guy who lives a few doors down. His name is Ken. He's big into Indian culture. He's Hindu and all of that stuff. Visited India a few times.

In the middle of our search, in the swampy part of our property, he turned to me. He smiled, and said "Beware of Shiva and Rudra, my boy. Shiva can be capricious, and you never quite know what Rudra will do."

I know who Shiva is, but what the hell does a Hindu god have to do with me or my brother? I tried to ask him what he meant, but he wouldn't answer me any more. I tried to look up Rudra, but I keep getting error messages from Google.



  1. Hey RC,

    Have you and your parents considering taking this to the local media? In most places they're usually willing to run a story about a missing child.

    What's more, since the police have basically washed their hands of the situation you've got a meaty scandal there for them to get to grips with - yeah, I know the priority has to be finding James, but if there's a big controversy over the cops leaving when there's tangible evidence that a serial abductor has absconded with James, that'll keep the story on the front page of your local papers - maybe even the national ones - for a good long time. And the more people see the story, the more likely it is that someone will find the information you need to save James, right?

    I can't believe it's standard operating procedure for the cops to just... leave like that. Your local journalists will have a field day with it. And with the police out of the picture they're your best bet at getting the word out.

  2. My parents don't want the word out. I've told them so many times to go to the local news, and even bigger news, but I don't have the heart or the energy to yell at them.

    They don't want publicity yet.

    And it's not standard operating procedure for the police. We begged them to stay, but they absolutely refused. Unless we want publicity, we can't do anything about it. We have neighborhood volunteers helping us, though.

    Thank you for your consideration though. I and my parents know you're thinking of this, and thank you.

  3. Rudra (Devanagari: रुद्र) is a Rigvedic God, associated with wind or storm, and the hunt. The name has been translated as "The Roarer", or "The Howler".
    The theonym Shiva originates as an epithet of Rudra, the adjective shiva "kind" being used euphemistically of the god who in the Rigveda also carries the epithet ghora "terrible". Usage of the epithet came to exceed the original theonym and by the post-Vedic period (in the Sanskrit Epics), the name Rudra is taken as a synonym for the god Shiva and the two names are used interchangeably.

    This is from Wikipedia... Rudra obviously isn't good. "The Howler"... creepy. Good luck.

  4. OH MY GOD! I just realized! This sounds like he's talking about Him and ///it/// (or however many /'s are in It's name) ! The Two slender men! They share characteristics and Shiva and Rudra's names become interchangeable! Oh lord... well... Shiva is ///it/// and Rudra is obviously Him... so... damn... well... now you know...

  5. I couldn't find anything about Rudra on Wikipedia...but what your saying doesn't sound good. Why do you keep talking about Slender Man? What do you know about James?

  6. Slenderman is the man you saw in the hat. When you were on your bike, you passed a man in a buisness suit and hat, that's slendy for you. He's the kind to take kids, people who got away as kids, and people with photographic evidence of him.

  7. You're telling me Slender Man is what James called Locust? Who is he? How do you all know who this is? Where can I find him? Does he have James?

  8. Slender Man WAS a meme on the internet... but... with so many people fearing Him... and believing... he became real... well that's one theory at least... Slender Man is VERY powerful. He seems to be able to bend Space and Time...

    He very well may have James... if he does... I don't think you can get him back... if he's hollowed (see my other comment on the newer post) then there's nothing you can do for him...

    Oh, but there seems to be a second Slender Man his name on the internet is ///It/// Just like that, he appears to be the calmer of the two with Him (the Slender Man most of us know) being very violent, while ///It/// mostly just observes... though he does hollow people.
