I got up in the morning and did my morning duties as usual just hoping nothing bad will happen. When I arrived at school, My Girlfriend was not there to greet me as she usually is. "Huh, That's odd, where could Sam be? Maybe she might be sick..." Boy was I wrong... I saw her outside the choir room, crying. I knelt down beside her and put my arm around her. "Sam? Whats going on? Why are you down here crying?" She didn't respond to me for a second, but then she spoke with tears choking nearly every word she tried to say.
"W-Well, I-I was just playing my video g-ame an-d... I-I don't know w-what happened.. Bu-" She then kept her head down and cried some more...
"What?... I don't understand.. What about her game is making her cry this bad?" I hugged her tight and stroked her hair. "Shh. It's OK, Everything will be fine, Sam. Please, just don't cry anymore..." I didn't know what else to do at that moment, The only thing I could do is find out what is causing her to cry. Then.. I got an Idea.
"Listen..." I saw her lift her head up a bit. "Maybe I could come over to your house today, and maybe we can do something together, ya know, to calm you down. OK?" She wiped the tears off her face, nodded and smiled. The bell rang, So I had to say goodbye to her (for the moment) I hugged her very tight and then said "Try to make it through the whole day, OK?" Again, she nodded and then I said "I love you..."
"I love you too.."
After the whole entire day was over, I went to David's locker and then I headed straight for home so I could pick up my bike, and rode over to Sam's place. When I got to her house, I knocked on the door and was greeted to her grandmother. "Uh.. Hi.. Is Sam Autobee here?" She looked at me coldly "Why do you ask?"
"I am her boyfriend, Ryan."
She nodded and then allowed me to enter. "She is in the shower right now, but you can go wait for her downstairs. Just do not do any funny business. Got it?" I nodded and then went down into the basement, and into her room. When I sat down, I noticed their down from the TV, was the PS3. Me, being the curious Marvin I am, I picked up the controller, turned on both the TV and the PS3, and waited for it to load. I looked at her Video game section, and noticed their was a black game that read:
"Huh, Well that's a bit odd... Might as well take a look and see what this "Unknown Disc" Is.." I selected the Unknown File and the screen faded to black, only to be greeted to the Title Screen to Spyro: The Year of the Dragon.
Ah yes! I remember this game when I was small, I use to play this game all the time! But wait... Why did it just skip to the title? Didn't it have the company logos flashing on the screen? I was correct by this statement, as it did skip it. The game must have been a bit glitchy over time from probably being played so much...
I was forced to select the new game file, for their was no saving cartridge to the game (or even a slot for it to be placed in.) The screen faded back to black and stayed like this for a good 5 minutes or so. "Great.. I think I broke the game..." I thought to myself. Before I was just about to turn it off. Suddenly, A Hyper Realistic Spyro took over the whole entire screen.
"HOLY SH-" I jumped back a bit and looked at the character closely, He still had his cartoonish appearance, it was only met up with Hyper Realistic Red eyes.. A text box appeared up.
Spyro: "Ah, You must be the boy Sam talks about..."
How the fuck does he know her name? And how can he know that she talks about me...
Spyro: "Well, I hope that you are eager to meet your fate, because I am really eager to play with you."
"PFFT. You don't scare me... You are just a animated image made to entertain, you are not real! At least.. I hope your not.."
Spyro had a huge smirk upon his face, he liked where this was going...
All the sudden the image disappeared, and the game started. The place looked very different from the happy colored place that you use to know. This place was very grey, and dull. All the colors looked as though they have died over time, and all the trees looked dead too. The whole place seemed to be dead at that.. Their were no gems, eggs, or mods. (Like Hunter, Zoe, etc.) The whole palace was just... lifeless... Since there were no eggs or gems for me to collect. I had no more purpose to be in the lifeless place, So, I went into one of the portals and it did the regular flying animation that we are all use to.
"I can see why Sam is so creeped out by this.. But what made it so bad that she was crying...?"
I finally entered the level and flew by it in a matter of minutes, I was really good with this level considering that I knew how to still do this level. All of a sudden, the screen went black, a image flickered the screen for a bit, All I saw from the image was one of the lions... He was eyeless and bleeding out blood... He also looked very sad too... Like someone did this to him...
I went on through out the entire game with not very many creepy things happening. Except at each level, every NPC would loose their eyes..
Before I was about to turn off the game, A very pixilated demonic voice said "YOUR TIME IS UP."
I looked up to see that it was the hyper realistic Spyro invading the screen again. He looked at me for a very long time.
I can't believe that one of my childhood heroes, has become as psychopathic killer.....
After 5 minutes of long silence, a text box appeared.
Spyro: "I must say, I am very impressed with how far you have gotten, unlike your girlfriend, you have stayed strong through all of it."
I should pat myself on the back for how far I have gotten and how well I have handled all the creepy things. Another Text box showed up.
Spyro: "But can you handle the next part?" Y/N
If I can survive the first part, I think I can survive the next part. I clicked Yes and then the screen went dark again, all of the sudden... The screen was flooded with a eyeless picture of Sam... It looked so very real... As though she was trapped in the game and Spyro did this to her... I could not see anymore.. I turned away and tears were rolling down my cheeks. The few images that flashed the screen were of Sam and her dead body or her body being tampered with.. And Spyro laughing in the background. I had enough!
I turned off the game and TV as fast as I could and then started to pant...
"Ryan? What are you doing here?"
I looked over and to my surprise I saw Sam, her hair was wet and she looked the same as she normally did.
"Oh thank god!" I gave her a bug hug and kissed her cheeks. When I broke from the hug.. She looked at me like I had lost my mind, but then she laughed and said "What was that all about?"
I rolled my eyes and said "Don't worry about it." And proceeded on with the day.
