The girl who was the victim of the Slender Man attack somehow survived the horrendous stabbing and lived to tell the tale.
It was in May of this year that two prepubescent girls took a third girl with them into the woods for a supposedly harmless children's game. However, behind this innocuous deal was a plan to murder the third girl.

The two girls, had decided they wanted to fulfill the wishes of Slender Man, a fiction horror character that abducts and then finishes off his victims with a knife.
But the fact of the matter is that all this was just in those two girls’ minds. Slender Man is just a figment of the imagination. He doesn’t exist except in novel or pop cultural form.
The two mindless girls had somehow gotten reality and fantasy mixed up and decided that in order to curry favor with the fictional Slender Man, they must kill someone too. Such was the power of their wild imaginations.
Apparently by some miracle of fate, their friend whom they stabbed a total of 19 times with a kitchen knife survived the attack. The incident was one that made the community the girls belonged to totally shocked and in a state of horrific disgust at something even pre-teens could be capable of.
At the moment when this stabbing took place, the parents of the girl, named Payton, were busy at their individual tasks. A police officer then arrived at their home, and told Payton’s mother in clear cut words that her beloved daughter had been assaulted with a knife.
Payton’s mother drove as fast as possible to the hospital with her husband and there they saw their daughter bleeding and looking deathly white. Among the 19 wounds, two were to major organs. One which was close to the heart could have killed her outright had the knife blade penetrated any more than it had.
Meanwhile, the police arrested Morgan and Anissa, the two girls who had planned the botched murder. When they stood for trial it was discovered that both were mentally unstable since they talked to imaginary characters like the heinous Slender Man. Payton’s dad, Joe was very angry at what had happened and said that it was his little daughter that had to suffer due to the carelessness and heedlessness of other parents who don’t put tabs on their daughters.
After some time in the hospital, Payton healed enough to be able to walk and talk. But she still gets tired after a few activities and is very frightened of standing in the witness box against those two bad girls who had planned to kill her.
Payton got thousands of letters of love and sympathy from around the world after the incident. She is a brave girl and is a symbol of the fact that child monitoring is a necessity in this age of “anything goes” Internet culture.
