Hi. I’m Zack. I used to be an ordinary citizen of Thornville, Ohio. But now I’m not there anymore. Let me tell you how I lost everything. My home, My love, My family, and now my life. All the blame goes to the Cyanide Dread.
Anyway, it all began when I was on my way home from work. It was about fifteen minutes away. When I got home, my wife Sarah was making dinner. “Welcome home honey,” Sarah said. I took off my jacket and put it on the coat rack. Then I replied with “Hi.” I went to my bedroom and got my cigarettes from a drawer and then went outside to smoke. My wife doesn’t like me smoking. But I’m too addicted.
About a minute later, Sarah yelled to me saying, “Diner’s ready honey.” I yelled, “Coming!” I was hungry. Sarah made steak, green beans, and rice. It was delicious. “So how was work?” she asked me. “Good. My boss said if I keep up the good work, I’ll get a promotion!” I responded happily. “Good job!” she said happily. She sounded as happy as I was.
We sat down on the couch to watch a movie after we ate. The movie was a romantic comedy. About thirty minutes into the movie, something unsettling happened. The TV started to go static. We were confused and annoyed. I tried to fix it, then a warning flashed on the screen for a couple of seconds. All we were able to read was, “WARNING! A SERIAL KILLERS HAVE ESCAPED THORNVILE MAXIMUM SECURITY PRISON. STAY INDOORS AND LOCK ALL DOORS AND…” then it went back to the movie.
“What the hell happened?” I said. But Sarah was already at the front door to lock it. I went to the backdoor to lock it. Then Sarah and I closed and locked all the windows. We then finished the movie. The ending was sad. The main character was killed by a poison that the villain used in his drink. It was getting late. So we went to bed. I looked outside and saw something that kinda weirded me out, a hooded man was standing outside. he was wearing a black coat, black pants, and a surgeon mask. I hope that wasn’t one of the killers. I laid back down and tried to sleep. I couldn’t get my mind off him. I finally fell asleep.
I had a nightmare. I was at work. All looked normal, but I knew it wasn’t. I felt like someone was watching me. I felt sick. I didn’t know why. I went to the bathroom. I was sitting near the toilet, ready to puke. but that never happened. I got up and went to leave when I notice that the door was gone. Where did it go? then I turned around and saw a tunnel open before my eyes. I entered. It was dark, wet, and unsettling. But I kept going through. It felt like hours walking through the cave.
I finally entered a room. Wait, this is my house! I turned to look at the cave to see it was no longer there. It was now my front door. It was completely silent to the point I thought I went deaf. Then, to break the silence, I heard a noise upstairs. I started to walk upstairs. I heard static coming from my room. I entered. There was static on the TV in my room. Then a message popped up. It said, “B E H I N D Y O U.” I was scared. But my body turned on its own.
There were four people there. One was the guy I saw outside! The second was a shadowy being that twitched and had what looked like a glitch effect of some sort. The third was a kid with green hair. His eyes were missing and were instead two white, empty circles The last guy was abnormally tall. I couldn’t see his face due to his massive height. All I knew that he was wearing a suit and a tophat.
The person that I saw outside said, “Found you.” Then he took a bottle out of his jacket. He made me chug the bottle. It tasted disgusting. Then I felt pain in all of my body. I fell. I was super dizzy. The tall guy leaned down to my normal height. I finally saw what I couldn’t earlier. He was wearing a yellow mask with a smile on it. He said, “Don’t Look So Down. Put A Smile On Your Face. Everything Will Be Okay.” By this time, I was losing consciousness.
I woke up in a sweaty state. I went to the bathroom to puke. This time, I was able to puke. I puked a lot. Pretty much all of that steak and rice was in that puke. I went to get some water to clear my mind. I went to the kitchen and got some water. I heard a knock at the door. I went to the door and looked through the window on the door. There was no one there. I went back to my water and chugged it down. Then out of nowhere, my body was in immense pain. It was like the pain in my dream, but twenty-times worse. I fell to the ground. I looked up. He was there. The man with the surgeon mask. “I’m sorry it has to be like this Zack.” I got weaker and weaker until I blacked out.
