(Warnings: General insanity. Some language.)
It was a difficult day today. It had been normal until Virus woke up. He usually sleeps a lot so I was a little more than just surprised.
I had been playing a game with a friend, Pewds to be exact. The day itself had been pretty quiet until we started a co-op game. I can't even remember what game it was but it was a scary one.
It happens sometimes that Virus likes to show when I'm really scared. I guess it's because he likes fear. Or at least that's what he always says. He once said to me that there was no emotion more delicious than fear. I still am not sure what the hell he was talking about.
Anyway, I was playing when we both got a good jump scare. It wasn't that big a deal but I guess it was enough to make Virus visit. Next thing I knew he was sitting next to me.
"H-h-h-how long ha-have you been pla-pl-playing?" He draped himself around me shoulders. I hate the way he sounds when he talks. His voice is just like mine but I always know it's his. He sounds like a glitch in a program or something. I also hate it when he gets this close to me. His skin is cold against my own. He doesn't let me move much either. He always tells me that I can't belong to anyone else because I belong to him. I hate feeling like that.
"Hey, Pewds. I better get going. I have to get some recording done. That cool?" I knew it would be better if I just left the game. Virus always forced me to say things I didn't mean. I could hear Pewds voice drop a little. We are friends after all.
"Ah yeah no problem. Don't worry about it cry." Even I couldn't help the small smile as he teased lightly. Virus was apparently in a mood today though. He actually made me say something I didn't mean to.
"Well, maybe another ten minutes." Shit. If I let this go too far he was going to do something scary again. I haven't had many friends because of him. Usually Mad and Virus make them disappear so to say.
I clicked off my mic for a moment and turned to look at him. "No. Not today. I'm tired." I was hoping he would just give up today. I didn't feel like arguing with him again. He just smiled at me before tightly grasping my neck. I didn't feel any fear right then. It wasn't uncommon for him to hurt me.
"D-d-d-don't make ma-me laugh. I am not af-f-f-fraid to hu-to-h-h-hurt you." He managed to get the sentence out finally. It wasn't until then that I noticed Mad was watching too. He was on the couch just behind us. Shit. Now I was starting to become concerned.
"Alright already. You play then. I don't feel like it." I stuck to what I had said earlier. I could feel my heart starting to race a little though as I sat there. I remember what he did to me last time. I remember waking up on the floor on top of shattered glass. My hands were trembling as I pulled myself into a sitting position. There was blood on the sink and walls. It took me a moment to remember what had happened. He had beaten me and thrown me against the mirror. My stomach turned a little as the memory brought back all the fear I felt then. Even my hands were starting to sweat a little.
"Get G-g-get out of the wa-a-ay." He pushed me to the side as he sat down. I looked to mad who seemed disappointed that there hadn't been bloodshed this time. He was there the last time Virus had attacked me. Mad had just watched. I hated him for that. Then when Virus had left he forced me to kiss him just to get a taste of the blood in my mouth. Even now I still feel somehow violated at the thought.
"Sorry about that. I had to get something to drink. Ok so where were we?" I just watched Virus play for a while. I could feel myself speaking but I knew it wasn't me. I was watching him after all. Pewds didn't seem to notice. That was good. Mad had always warned me that if anyone found out about them they would make them go away. I don't like the thought of them not being here. It sounds so lonely. I better go now. We have to play with Pewds still. Virus told me to tell the rest of you that he's waiting. He wants to play with you too.
