This for Snape's alternatives who pick phobias and wanted a psychological thriller.

If you pick a type of horror story, I'll do a shout out. If you haven't, here's a link:

"They are everywhere, I tell you! EVERYWHERE!!!" he screamed as he was dragged to the mental hospital. He caught sight of his friends. His eyes locked on Amy.
"You believe me, honey? Come on, babe! Tell them you saw them too! I know you did, tell them I am not crazy!"
Amy slowly shook her head and waved as they threw her boyfriend in the police car and drove off. Amy, in fact, did see them. The shadows. He was talking about the shadows he has seen since he was 10. And when him and Amy got together, she started to see them too. Maybe it's something that he put in her food or a terrbile phobia he had. Sciaphobia, Amy thought.
"Hey, David. Is it possible that Timothy has a fear or phobia of anything?"
David laughed, "Yea. As kids, he always told me that shadows creeped him out. He was diagnosed with sciaphobia, the fear of shadows. That's why he never comes out when it's nice out."
"Can we go inside and you explain to me more?"
"Sure."

Amy and friends went inside. They were telling Amy about Timothy Masion before he snapped. Patty said, "He was about to ask your hand in marriage. It was his dream to marry you and seeing the birth of his children."
Amy smiled. It was true. Timothy was telling her about having kids but they have no time too. Suddenly, they heard a crash and shadows were moving.
"Shit! Did you guys see that or was it me?" Tommy said. They nodded. They all went into the kitchen and found a horrifying sight. It looked like Timothy, but it wasn't. It was his shadow, along with other shadows. Shadows were circling them, the friends fell through a spiral.
