SCP-354: The Red Pool
SCP-354 is a pool of red liquid located in northern Canada. The liquid is similar in consistency to human blood but is non-biological in nature. The density of the liquid increases proportionally with depth. Periodically, entities emerge from the pool and attempt to escape from the enclosure. Thusfar, nearly all creatures emerging from SCP-354 have been extremely hostile and highly dangerous. A log of entities which have emerged from SCP-354 can be found on the main article. One attempt at exploring the pool has been made. A log of the exploration can be found here.
I was approximately 4-5 years of age and living in with my Mum and younger brother in a small, three bedroom house in Christchurch, New Zealand.
As the older and somewhat more hyperactive brother I often didn’t have normal sleeping patterns and would awake at all hours of the night.
