I'm alright. When that thing finally left, I gathered my things and fled the house. This time, however, I wasn't able to get any help. Even more children have gone missing recently and there's a full on search being conducted by both the police and locals. Then It reappeared once I was outside and I was forced to run for my life, and then had to make my way into town on foot. I saw It off and on, throughout the night. It was closer and closer with each successive sighting, until it finally charged me head on. I don't know how, but I managed to not get ensnared in his tendrils. Perhaps It just wanted to play with me. I don't know, but It never caught me.
Eventually, I made my way into town and got on a bus. Today, I've arrived in Greenfield, Mass. I haven't caught sight of It yet, but I'm going to abide by the rules set by M of The Tutorial. I've rested and ready to move on again. I'll stay in touch and continue to chronicle my journeys.
Also, my name is "Pete" now. Ron of Drew's Box 'o' Stuff was kind enough to suggest a proper name for me.
