I love "The Secret Saturdays". Always had and always will. If you look at my deviantART account, Dragonrule231, you'd see I have an OC named Max who is based on the show. He has blue wings and tail since he has Kur within him.
But that is not what I want to talk about.
My birthday was not too long ago and I wanted to get the game 'Secret Saturdays: Beasts of the 5th Sun', but since it was an old game, it wasn't in stores anymore, so I ordered it online on Walmart's website using a gift card my mom gave me to buy the game. I was so excited to get the game, for I've seen people do walkthroughs of it (I never finished them, for I wanted to find out what happens myself), and I just couldn't wait to play it.
Playing it would be something I regret.
On Sunday, oddly, the game finally came in. The mail didn’t come on Sundays. But since there was a baseball game that day, I had to leave it unopened.
The Next morning, since I had extra time, I took out the disk and put it into my Wii. I started to play the first level, but then I had to pause it because I had to go to school. And so, I pressed the home button, disconnected the nunchuck from the Wii remote, put the remote on the charger, and turned off the TV, but left the Wii running, so I could get back onto it without having to restart the level.
I think that’s when it began.
At school, I got really tired and I fell asleep while we were watching a documentary on the civil war. I heard a maniac laughter, and I heard a crying plead. Help me, Dragon, Help! Don’t play the game; throw it away when you get the chance! Please don’t endanger the others, please! I realize that voice is what I imagined Max’ s voice to sound like. I woke right after the plead and I saw everyone was looking at me. I chuckled nervously and just said I accidently fell asleep, period. But my head was full of thoughts. Why would Max tell me not to play the game, and how did he do that, exactly? I pushed it aside and continued my day.
I should have heeded Max’s warning.
After school, my sister had tutoring and my parents were at work, and so I was alone. I immediately went to my Wii and saw it was off. I tilted my head, confused, but I went ahead and got back on, turning on the Wii. When the Wii menu appeared, something was different. Instead of it staying ‘The Secret Saturdays: Beasts of the Fifth Sun’ on the DVD menu thing, It said ‘Saturday’s Secret’. I rubbed my eyes and it reverted back to what it was supposed to be. I chuckled, just thinking it was my eyes, and I pressed ‘start’.
Instead of the menu screen for the game or the ads, it immediately appeared to selection. I saw it had saved my file, and so I selected it. I saw the weird world intro start, but instead of Argost speaking like before, he just looked at the screen with what looked like fear. It quickly moved away and I was left confused. But then it came up with a few words. “Do you remember me?” I was afraid by then. I had no idea what was going on. It gave me two choices. Yes or no. I wanted to put down the Wii remote, but as if possessed, I hovered the Wii remote over ‘Yes’ and I pressed ‘A’. The screen went black and then more words appeared on the screen. “Then this should be fun.”
It went to the beginning of the game, but the player was different. I immediately saw it to be Max Saturday, My OC on deviantART that I told you about. He had a fearful look on his face. His dialogue box came up, the picture beside it being the same picture within the art ‘That's right... Release me, Max Saturday...’ within the OCs folder. What he said freaked me out a little.
“I told you not to play the game, Dragon… But it’s too late now… You are in his control… And you won’t be able to put down the game… Until we all suffer…”
I tried to press the home button, but my hands wouldn’t move. Instead, my thumb moved the nunchuck right, and Max moved forward, further into the Headquarters. About a few opening and closing of doors later, a dialogue box popped up. There was no picture, but there was only one word in the box. A name.
Max stopped moving and he turned around. “No…” Max’s dialogue box popped up with. “I told you, Dragon, I told you. Press the power button, please, press the power button now! Leave me behind, but save the others! Keep them all safe! Please press it now!”
I could hear Max’s voice say this as I read the text within my head. I couldn’t move my hands. They were frozen. I watched as a shadowy figure stepped into view of the camera. Max’s horrified look feared me. His dialogue box reopened.
“…Dragon… I’m already dead… You didn’t press it. And now you are going to let everyone suffer… Dad please go away… We all remember you… Everyone remembers you… Even though you discontinued, everyone remembers you… don’t make me discontinue because you are discontinued…”
The dialogue box with no picture overlapped Max’s. “Kill… Kill everyone… who has forgotten… who has replaced… I should be continued… no one should take my place… Burn them all… Destroy everyone who has replaced… kill you… you replace me…”
The shadowy figure became a person. I saw it to be Zak Saturday, but his eyes actually had a different appearance. They were fully red. No white, no pupil, nothing. Just red. I gulped. His picture appeared as his dialogue box popped up. It was the most gruesome thing I have ever seen. It was so realistic, I thought if I reached out, I could actually touch him. His red eyes had a shine against them and he seemed to have fangs popping out of his mouth. The rest I cannot bear to describe. The words he said actually feared me a slight, even though they didn’t seem they would.
“I am Zak Saturday, if you have all forgotten.”
I watched helplessly as Zak started slowly walking towards Max, who backed up a slight from him. There was no dialogue box, but I heard Max cry. “Dragon turn the Wii off, please do it now! Please save everyone please! Turn it off Turn it off Turn it o-” His voice was cut off by the sound of a splat coming from the TV. I saw Max fall to the ground and Zak grin wide. A dialogue box appeared. There were only a few words.
“Check your iPod.”
The screen went black. It returned to the Wii menu. I was full of fear. What did I just witness?
A sudden shift and I breathed in deeply. I saw my sister was looking at me. “Are you okay, Sendra?”
Sendra was my name. I looked at the screen, and only one word appeared on a dialogue box.
I stood up and turned off the Wii. I wasn’t going to touch it again. I heard what sounded like a notification coming from my pocket, and I pulled out my iPod. The notification said ‘Check your iPod’. I remembered that’s what Zak said before I had woken up. I was nervous as I slid the notification bar and typed in my passcode.
What I saw was too gruesome, but I have to describe it.
I saw a noose around Max’s neck, blood pouring from it. His eyes were pitch black and his right wing was ripped off of his back. His tail was almost completely gone, but the rest of his tail hung like an almost broken stick, but still dangled. The noose wasn’t hung up, although. Holding the other end of the noose was the Zak I saw a few minutes ago. He had a grin the size of Massachusetts, and his eyes were as pitch red as ever. Words in red hovered in front of them both.
“See you later tonight.”
I was fully afraid. But my iPod died a few seconds after I read the text. I felt like I was going to be sick, and my sister lead me to the bathroom.
Later that night, I was heading to bed. I lied down and closed my eyes, ready to sleep. But then I heard a voice. A voice similar to Zak Saturday’s, but a slight demonic. ”Wake up.”
I opened my eyes, and I was feared to see I was at the Wii again, and there was text on the screen. I held the nunchuck and Wii remote in my hands and I was afraid. How did I get back here? I looked at the screen. Red text appeared on a pitch black screen. ”Do you know who I am now?”
I knew I wouldn’t be able to leave the couch. Or go to sleep. Or even turn off the Wii without answering. I hovered the remote over the choice of ‘Yes’ and I pressed ‘A’. The screen went black again, and it showed a name. Frantina. She must have been next. I gulped as it told me to clarify. Yes or no. I hovered the remote over ‘no’ and pressed ‘A’, but then it appeared again, this time the text of Frantina’s letters a little redder. I hovered the remote over ‘no’ again, but I hesitated to press ‘A’. I moved the icon over ‘Yes’ and I pressed ‘A’.
The screen turned black, and instead of looking like the gameplay, this time it looked like I was playing Amnesia on the Wii. I chuckled a slight, a slight insane as well, liking the reference. The character was holding a candle, and whoever the character was, they had a black glove on. This must’ve been Frantina. “Max?” I heard Frantina call from the backround. “Max, Where are you?” I started to move the nunchuck forward, and Frantina started walking straight. I realized we were in some strange, long corridor. I’ve hated corridors ever since I watched PewDiePie play Amnesia Custom Stories. I gulped as I saw a person’s outline. “Max is that you?” I heard Frantina speak. The figure stepped forward, and I saw Zak again. I shook my head, wanting to look away, wanting to turn off the Wii, wanting to save Frantina from this horror. But I couldn’t move a muscle besides my head. I gulped as I heard Zak ask Frantina what he asked me earlier.
“Do you know who I am now?”
The screen tilted a slight, probably meaning she was tilting her head out of confusion. “…Max?”
“Max is dead.” Zak replied. “I am Zak Saturday, if you had forgotten.”
I saw Zak start towards Frantina, and I turned Frantina around and started to run. Even the Amnesia-Grunt-Chasing-Music played as Frantina ran. I heard Frantina’s voice again. “What did you do to Max, Dragon?! What did you do?!” All the sudden she stopped running, and she was thrown to the ground. The camera moved out and I saw Frantina in a kinda-gameplay shape, neck broken. Zak was standing behind where she fell, grinning. Words appeared on the screen. They feared me more than the dead Frantina.
“Four more days. Then they will all be dead.”
I gain control of my hands and I turned off the Wii, went over to the system, took out the disc, put it into its case, and locked it in my closet and had my sister hide the key. She was confused of why I was awake and why I wanted her to hide the key, but I didn’t care. I just wanted that game OUT OF MY SIGHT.
But that wasn’t the last time.
The next day, at school again, I was drawing in my notebook. I then realized that something was off with it. I turned the page and I slightly gaged. The drawing showed Frantina, almost too good to be my own drawing, almost in the same appearance as Max, but she was injured way more. She had cuts all over her body, including on her face. Like the previous night, her neck was broken. Her right eye was scared and she seemed to be… smiling. As Max had, she had a noose around her neck, and this time, she actually was hung. I didn’t see Zak on the page at all. My students wondered why I gaged and when I looked at the page again…
The page was blank.
I was afraid to go home, but I had no real choice. I returned home and I heard a beep come from my iPod. I was afraid to look at it, but my body was quicker than my thoughts as I reached into my pocket and looked at the notification. A text. I opened it up and only a few words lied on it.
“Four Days Starting Tomorrow.”
I gulped, remembering the previous night. He told me Four more days. I was scared. Scared of what he would do to the rest. He controlled me in my sleep and made me turn on the game. It was a real-life Creepypasta. I didn’t want this. I wanted to be free. And so that’s what I did. I told my sister to find the key and give it back. I grabbed the game and went outside. I lit the bonfire and threw the game into the fire. I knew if this game had a demon possessing it, I knew this was the only way to kill it. At least all I knew.
I headed to bed later that night, but Zak still haunted my dream. He kept saying ‘Four more days’, ‘wake up’, ‘I’m not done with you’, ‘Max and Frantina will haunt you’, ‘They will never forgive you for this’, ‘He DID warn you’… I woke in front of the Wii. The game was inside. How? How is this possible? I burned it. I read the text.
“You didn’t think you could get rid of me that easily, Sendra. Right? Did you honestly think you could discontinue me this early? This is only the beginning. I will make them ALL SUFFER THE CONSIQUINCES.”
I was immediately afraid. He wasn’t going to leave until they all died, was he? Why. Why me and Max and the others? Why does he want to kill them?
As if he heard me, he replied.
“You know too much. They know too much. You know plenty of Kur. And now you must deal with this. Feel the pain I felt when I was discontinued. Like all of your friends. They will all DISCONTINUE. DISCONTINUE. DISCONTINUE…”
The screen started to spam with DISCONTINUE. But it stopped after a fifteen seconds. It gave me a choice. Saphire and Ken. Yes or no. I froze at the name ‘Ken’. This was moonofheaven1’s OC. Were Prince and them getting killed, too? I wanted to say no. But I knew it would turn worse if I denied it. Their death would be terrible. I hovered the Wii remote over ‘Yes’
And I pressed ‘A’.
I think Zak ran out of ideas of games. It showed this as if it was an actual TV show. It showed Saphire walking the hall. She was calling for Frantina and Max. But instead of seeing Zak like Frantina like before, she walked into what seemed to be the kitchen. She screamed. It showed me what was there. It showed Max and Frantina hung, the way they were in those pictures I saw, but they were both hung on the ceiling, holding hands, like they were together at the same place and time they were killed. Saphire backed away from the hovering bodies and bumped into someone. Already I knew who it was. Zak smiled twistedly at Saphire. “See you friends… I made them HAPPY. They are finally together for ETERNITY. And you, too, will be with them for ETERNITY. FOR ETERNITY.”
Saphire scram and ran towards the corner and coward, knowing she was dead the first time she saw Max and Frantina. Zak walked towards Saphire, but then I saw another figure behind Zak. I found it to be Ken, trying to sneak up on Zak. I managed to yell “No, Don’t!” But he didn’t hear me. Ken was about to hit Zak in the back of head with the pan he held in his hand, just for Zak to turn and swing his arm, knocking Ken back into the wall. I heard a snap. His neck must of cracked. I was fully scared now. But I could do nothing as Zak approached Saphire. The screen went black, and I heard a painful, high scream.
A shift. I woke in my bed. But I was greeted by the game in my hands, as if I hugging it. How is this possible. HOW IS IT HERE? I wanted answers. Why is this possessed? It’s not a pre-owned game! I gulped. Why. Why. Why.
At school people asked if I was okay. Four more days starting today. Who else could he kill? I knew Prince was going to be on that list. But who else? I couldn’t bear to see more deaths.
Saphire and Ken.
Who else will suffer this pain.
I want to leave.
I don’t want to talk about this anymore.
But I have to.
You all must know.
That day I went on the game. I didn’t want to be possessed. I wanted this to end quickly. But it was strange. It started up like normal game play. It was waiting. Waiting for my weakest point. When I was asleep. I didn’t want to wait. I wanted to get it over with.
Later that night, I found myself in front of the Wii again. This time, more words were on the screen than before.
“Please don’t leave me. I only want to play. You wanted the game, didn’t you? This is the game. It is all A GAME. Don’t you see. I want REVENGE. You all forgot me. And now I will make my point. I will kill you all. All who has forgotten. All who has replaced. I won’t let you replace me, Sendra. Max is a replacement. And I will kill everyone until I know you won’t replace me again. NEVER AGAIN WILL I BE REPLACED. NEVER AGAIN. NEVER... AGAIN.”
I snarled at the screen, but the screen gave me an option. It reminded me of HetaOni, but instead of saying ‘Play as Which Group’ it said…
Prince, Skreetress, Zoki
Kaz, Xam, Cinper, Dark Ken
I gulped, but I knew I was going to kill Argost first, for I knew I probably wouldn’t feel as bad.
But man was I wrong.
It showed Argost at Weird World, as if it were gameplay, in the room where he filmed the show. He was pacing. Then we both heard a voice.
“Kill him… kill him like I killed you…”
It sounded like the demonic Zak. But the Demonic Zak didn’t come into view. The undead Max with the noose still tied to his throat came into view, and Argost jumped away. I watched as undead Frantina and Zak came into view as well. Frantina and Max were in front of Zak, like his… puppets. Zak chuckled. “You are the reason I discontinued, Argost. Now you will discontinue like the REST OF US.” I watched fearfully as Max, Frantina, and Zak approached Argost, and Argost was forced back. He went into the room where the battle would take place, I knew because it was right after the weird world area, and plus I did watch the final battle between Zak and Argost in the gameplay of Beasts of the 5th Sun. Zak’s eyes glew orange on the outside, but the actual pitch red eyes stayed the same. About ten Skrees appeared above Argost and they all struck at him at once. I gulped as the Skrees flew up and I saw Argost’s disfigured body. Zak grinned, showing me his fangs clearly, seeming to look directly at me, as so did the undead Frantina and Max. The last thing that came out of Zak’s mouth.
I woke in my bed and I looked around fearfully. I stood and went into the room where the Wii was at to see a note on the table. A note. Strange. I picked it up. This is what it read.
“Don’t be scared. It’s only a game.”
I gulped. This must have been from Zak. How, I don’t know. Maybe he used me. I ripped the note, not wanting to keep it, and threw it away.
It came back at school. I was looking through my notebook when I saw it again. “Don’t be scared. It’s only a game.” I felt like this wasn’t Zak anymore. I felt like it was me, trying to let me know I shouldn’t be scared. Like a calmer side of me is trying to tell me it’s nothing I should fear.
That side was too late. I was already too scared to even think about not being afraid.
I returned home that night terrified. My sister asked me what was wrong, but I didn’t answer. I was playing a possessed game. I feared the worst as I got onto my deviantART page. Were they dead on here, too? I looked at the previous pictures I posted. No. They were alive. I then checked the most recent. Still alive. I calmed, but then I realized something was off. I looked at my gallery and I saw a folder that was invisible to the public.
Sendra’s Saturday Secret.
I gulped as I clicked on the folder. I saw the two pictures of Max and Frantina when I saw them before, but there was two more, without thumbnails. I clicked one of them, and I saw Ken and Saphire, Ken, having bone-like wings with some flesh coming out of his back and Saphire’s tail having a similar appearance. Her wings were ripped and there were two nooses tied together, so Ken and Saphire were tied together. What was with all the nooses? That is what I wanted to find out. These guys were killed from murder, so… Why the nooses? Nooses were used for suicide… Why the nooses? I clicked out of that picture and I went to the other one. I saw Argost’s disfigured body and Zak. But this was an animation. Not even I knew how to do an animation. I watched Zak walk over to Argost and bend down, picking up the mask and smiling widely. “Ah, just what I needed.” A small box appeared besides the animated Zak. Then the whole window closed. I was left a slight confused and a slight terrified. I went back on to look at the folder again. I was surprised to see it was gone. It was deleted within a minute. I knew this wasn’t the work of a hacker. How was Zak getting on all my electronic devices? First the Wii, then my iPod, and now my laptop…
I’m going to find all this out. I will end Zak. I will get him out of my game, out of my life.
I searched ‘demon possessed video games’ on Google, but the only thing that seemed logical was one based on people being possessed by demons. It said the only way to rid of a demon possession is divine intervention, but when I searched that, the window closed. Zak was onto me. I pushed my computer away after shutting it and I looked at the Wii which was in the room behind me. He WAS onto me. It’s as if he was looking at me through the Wii itself. I sighed. It was Friday, and I was going to try and stay up the whole night. But I was tired. Oh gosh what have I gotten myself into…
I managed to stay awake. Zak didn’t possess me. He can only get me while I’m asleep. Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, I managed to stay awake. I stayed up for six days. Thursday I couldn’t do it. I passed out, and woke in front of the Wii once again. The text this time was red.
“You left me alone! I don’t want to be alone! You will come back to me, don’t try to fight me! You will have to fall asleep at some time… Don’t try that again, or I will possess you even without you sleeping.” He was furious. Oh gosh what did I do. Now their deaths are going to be horrible, I know it.
The screen came up with white letters. Same thing as the other day, but Argost’s name was scratched off with red strike text and it said ‘Kill Next’. I gulped.
Prince, Skreetress, Zoki
Kaz, Xam, Cinper, Dark Ken
I gulped. If I didn’t choose, I had a feeling Zak would choose for me. I selected
Prince, Skreetress, Zoki.
I feared what would happen to them. What would he do. But it started with both of the groups. Kaz, Xam, Cinper, Dark Ken, Prince, Skreetress, and Zoki were in a big group. This time, It looked like the characters were MMDs.
“Alright, we’ll split up. We need to find that virus before it gets to her, alright?” Prince said to the others.
"What do we do when we find the virus? Both of our powers aren't working." Dark Ken mentioned.
Prince sighed. "That's why we have weapons. You have Xam and Kaz while I have two cryptids, so we should be fine." Prince seemed to have a guilt look as he said this. "...Alright. As I said before, We need to find that virus before it gets to her, alright?"
Skreetress squalled, Zoki nodded, Dark Ken and the rest nodded. “You, Skreetress, and Zoki go that way. We’ll go this way.” Xam explained before leading the others the direction he pointed, which was behind Prince and the two cryptids.
Prince looked at Skreetress and she squalled. “Let’s hope they bump into the virus, not us.” Prince said with a slight fear in his voice before walking forward.
I gulped as they continued down, stopping in front of a room. “This is Max’s room.” Prince pointed out, the obvious to Skreetress. Prince took a hand to the knob and turned it before pushing the door open. It showed Prince looking into the room. I saw his eyes widen before pulling his head out of the door and slamming the door shut. “Run!” Prince said before running, holding Zoki in his hands and Skreetress flying behind him. It showed the door still, and the door was kicked down, revealing the Max that was with Zak, Frantina, and Argost when they killed Argost. He growled and chased the three.
I was very afraid as they got to what seemed to be a dead end. “Oh no.” Prince mumbled before turning around, seeing Max standing there, looking at them with a frown. “…Prince… Help me…”
“What?” Prince questioned. Did Max just ask for help? Even I was confused. But both of us, Prince and me, were taken out of our thoughts as Zak jumped down from the roof and behind Max. Zak chuckled. “Oh Max, don’t even try. Kill them.”
Max growled and roared before jumping up and grabbing Skreetress by the claw and throwing her down to the ground before grabbing the Skree’s head and snapping it. I almost gaged. Max looked at Prince again before gripping his head, seeming to fight something. “Stop it… Stop it!” Max growled.
Zak frowned. “Fine. I’ll just let my puppet watch, then.” Zak said before jumping up high and landing in front of Prince, causing him to jump back. “Watch and learn, pathetic puppet.” Zak sneered before grabbing Prince by the arm and throwing him back like a rag doll. Prince fell to the ground and groaned, getting up and seeing Zoki unmoving. “Zo…ki?” Zak walked up to Prince and picked him up by the neck. Prince growled and tried to yank his hand off. “You…killed her… Son of a... a…” Prince grew limp. Zak smiled. “Now that’s how you kill correctly…”
The Wii turned itself off, making everything pitch black, and I found myself in my bed again. I was afraid. What am I doing? I should have destroyed the disc. But then again, I through it in the fire and it still came back. It was indestructible. It wasn’t going to leave until it made them suffer. I gulped. This wasn’t going to end with a pretty sunset and everyone surviving.
I went to school that day afraid. I was shivering and people asked if I was sick of if I had a cold or if something was wrong. I didn’t speak even once that day. Not even when I was at home. It was as if Zak had taken my vocal chords and ripped them out of my neck forcefully. That night I didn’t fight. I fell asleep and woke in front of the Wii.
“Now you respond, good.” The text came up with its normal text. “Let’s kill the last four, okay?” He was talking to me like I wanted to see their death.
Kaz, Xam, Cinper, Dark Ken.
It started to play, looking like an actual TV show this time, Xam in the front, the rest of his group following. They were walking besides what seemed to be an aquarium. Cinper looked at the tank with a slight fear. “What if he finds a way to drown us…”
“He’s not a ghost, he can’t walk through walls.” Dark Ken said with a roll of his eyes. Then Dark Ken stopped walking, and he froze in place. The others continued until they realized Dark Ken wasn’t following. “Come on, Dark Ken, move, before he catches up with us.”
Dark Ken only responded with a chatter of his teeth. The view turned and it went behind Dark Ken’s head, and when it came back, it showed Zak gripping his neck. “Having Fun yet?” Zak asked Dark Ken.
It felt more like he was asking me that question.
Zak vanished and Dark Ken gripped his head. “No! NO!” He yelled before he seemed to freeze again, and then he slowly went into a normal position before having a twisted smile. He looked at his hands and grinned. “Heh. Not bad of a Puppet.”
“Dark Ken, cut it out, let’s go.” Cinper ordered.
Dark Ken looked at Cinper before running at him, grabbing him by the neck and slamming him hard against the aquarium’s glass, leaving a crack, but not letting it leak. “Dark Ken what are you----“ Cinper’s eyes rolled to the back of his head and Dark Ken dropped him. Then Dark Ken pulled at his hair. “NO! WHAT DID YOU MAKE ME DO!” Dark Ken then chuckled. “What does it look like? You are a puppet, after all…” Dark Ken then seemed to try and claw his face with his nails. “GET OUT! GET OUT OF ME!” Dark Ken seemed to fade and another figure took his place. When Dark Ken completely faded, Zak stood in his place.
Xam and Kaz reacted. “The Virus!” Xam took out The Scythe and Kaz took out The Fang.
Zak chuckled. “Don’t worry about me, worry about your drowning friend.”
Xam and Kaz looked at the aquarium after hearing a few thuds to see Dark Ken inside the aquarium. They ran over to the glass and Xam yelled through the glass. “Hold on, Dark Ken, we’ll get you out! Hold your breath!” Xam took the Scythe and struck at the glass, a crack formed, but it fixed itself. “W-What?” Xam said with shock.
Zak chuckled, having appeared besides Xam, watching the drowning kid. “I didn’t want you interfering, so I am keeping the glass stable… Savvy?”
Xam growled and got mad, obviously, striking at the glass until he stopped, giving up. “No…”
Dark Ken banged on the glass. But then he gave up and talked. “I’m sorry I doubted you, Cinper!” And that was all it had to take for him to swallow the water. Dark Ken banged on the glass again, fading slowly and slowly until, finally, he banged on the glass one last time, and his eyes closed. He drifted down into the aquarium.
Zak smiled twistedly. “A wonderful sight, isn’t it?”
Xam growled and swung the Scythe at Zak, but it went right through him. Zak chuckled again before looking at Xam. He swung a fist and Xam was thrown into the middle of the hallway.
Kaz growled. “Don’t you dare touch another hand on my son!” Kaz swung the Fang at Zak, but Zak stopped it with his hand. “You never learn, do you?” Zak’s eyes glew again like they did with Argost and Kaz froze, small mumbling coming out of his mouth before he just collapsed. Zak dropped the Fang before looking at Xam, who was sitting crisscross on the ground, sniffling.
I didn’t want to watch. Xam I thought was one of the best characters I created. But I couldn’t do anything. I saw a noose go around Xam’s neck, and his eyes snapped open, realizing it too late. He was yanked up, and holding the rope of the noose was Max and Frantina. Xam coughed and choked before he went limp, the only thing keeping him up was the noose.
I woke in my bed. It was Saturday, and the last day. I went on my computer and checked my deviantart. The folder was back. But instead of having each of the deaths, it only had one picture. I opened it and I saw the two last groups that Zak killed, including Max and Frantina, and Zak smiling in front of all of them. “Ready for the final kill?” the picture asked me before the whole window closed on me.
Later that day, My parents went to the laundry mat and my sister was over at her friend’s house which was next door. I went to the Wii. It turned itself on and I grabbed the Wii remote and nunchucks before sitting down at my seat.
Text came up on the screen. “I thought you didn’t want to do this?”
I wanted to cry. “…I just want to get it over with…” I mumbled.
The text faded and reappeared. “Heh. Thought so. Well, just stay seated and… let’s have fun.”
It showed a picture of Zak looking at the screen, and to my surprise, the picture moved and reach out of the television, grabbing the edge of it like it was a window, and he climbed out of the TV. I screamed and ran at the glass door that took me to the deck. He looked at me and chuckled. “The next death is you, Sendra. You’ll be a great addition to my puppet collection.” He laughed. I ran out the door and ran to my sister’s friend’s house and knocked on the door rapidly. My sister opened the door and I ran in, forcing the door shut and locking the door before sitting in front of the door, grabbing the black cat near me and my sister, setting it in my lap, and started petting it, hoping it would calm me.
I got a therapist later that day and told him my story. He told me I was crazy. But you all believe me, right? RIGHT?
I returned home with a note, telling my mom how crazy I seemed to be. I went to bed that night with a nightmare. I saw Zak besides my bed. He set a hand on my cheek and he smiled at me. “I will come back, but I had fun with you.” Zak grinned before I woke up. I was on the couch in the room where the Wii was. I looked at the TV. It only had one word in a dialogue box from the game.
