I must be crazy. I didn’t think I would be writing this story, but here I am, telling my experience. I must admit, this doesn’t seem like a good idea. But I must tell what happened. This is a really important experience for me, and I must tell it.
My name is Colin Striker, I’m 18 years old at the moment… but, this story started when I was 17. I was born in 28th of December of 1999. I wasn’t a grade-a student. I always hung out with the few friends that I had, and most other students bullied me, but, it wasn’t a bad life. I had gotten used to the bullying, my friends always kept me going, and school wasn’t hard, and I had a good time while in it. Plus, even if it was a bad day, I always went through a forest to get back home, where a lot of critters, dogs, and cats came through, so I could relax a bit before getting home.
I guess, all of that changed, once it got to that day. March 6th of 2017. The day where I found… that…
It was 3:30 pm. That day had been pretty normal, nothing out of the ordinary had happened, until I was going through the woods, thats when something suddenly fell on my head from one of the trees. It was made of a metal material, so it did hit hard. After a few seconds of holding my head from the pain, I looked down at the item that had fallen and kneeled down on the floor to pick it up and inspect it. It seemed like a bracelet, but with some weird modifications. The one that peaked my interest the most were the spikes that appeared from each side, all of them pointing downwards, which would cause anyone to wear it to cut themselves. I would’ve thought twice about those, but I was confused with the other modification, which was a screen that ran through the middle of it. There seemed to be no way to turn it on, there where no buttons, no switches, nothing. It seemed to just be there. I laughed for a bit before standing up and started walking away from it. But, as I started to, I stopped for a bit to think about it. Maybe I could find a way to turn it on, or maybe I could continue investigating it, so I went ahead and grabbed it, placing it in my backpack to protect it, to then continue going back home.
My house, just like the rest of my life, was pretty much a common person’s house. It had two floors, two bathrooms, one on each floor, three bedrooms, one of which was free to use as a game room or guest room, a kitchen, a living room, and a dining room. I walked in through the front door, being greeted by my mother
-Hello Colin!- She shouted this from the kitchen, with a smile visible on her face as she looked at me
-Hey mom. What are you cooking?- I asked this as I took my backpack for a while in the living room to take my jacket off.
-I thought about preparing some Chicken with Rice, accompanied by a bit of corn and bell peppers-
-That sounds really good- He says this as he puts his backpack back on to then head to his room -I’ll be back in a bit, I just need to leave this in my room-
-No problem Colin- She said this with a cheerful tone as I lost her from my sight.
I entered my room, leaving my backpack on the floor inside my room by the side of my door, going back down. I was going to check the bracelet later, it would not be a good idea to check it now when my mom is awake and at home.
As I get down to the first floor. I crash on the couch and look at my mother in the kitchen
-So, do you think dad’s coming home tonight?- I asked this while still laying down on the couch
-He called today, he said that the hunt was still going good, so he’ll be home by tomorrow night-
-Well, that’s another dinner without him…- I said this in a disappointed tone of voice.
As my mother heard this, she stopped cooking for a bit, turning the stove off to then walk towards the living room, sitting by my side and looking down, with her hands held together above her legs, sighing.
-Hey, don’t feel bad about it, I’m sure he misses you you just as much as you miss him- She then proceeded to hug me, petting my head slowly -Believe me, everything is going to be ok-
The hug made me smile for a bit, since it’s not often when she hugs me, and it always warms me up with joy whenever she does, I then proceeded to hug her back.
After a few seconds of hugging, she let go of it, standing up and smiling back at me, to then go back to the kitchen to continue cooking.
Many hours later, after supper and dinner, me and my mother went to sleep to our respective rooms. After a few hours in total darkness, I went outside my room, only peeking my head to listen, sure enough, I only heard my mother’s snores. I then slowly closed my door, locking it behind me. I then grabbed my backpack and went over to my desk, taking out some screwdrivers and batteries. I then slowly took out the bracelet from my backpack, placing it in front of me. The first thing I did was open the latch on the bottom, which made it extend out as if it was going to be put on. I then proceeded to look for any kind of screws on it. There seemed to not be any of them . I then proceeded to try and connect both sides of the battery to the bracelet, to see if maybe it had enough energy to turn the monitor on, again, to no luck at all. I tried to keep on looking for a bit, getting tired from time to time, until half an hour later, I fell asleep, my wrist falling on top of the open bracelet… after a few seconds of it being there, the bracelet snapped onto me, the spikes closing in on my wrist, waking me up from the pain. I tried to take it off, but, as if it was an act of magic, the latch was nowhere to be seen. I tried many ways to take it off, to no avail. After a few minutes of trying, I noticed something interesting, there wasn’t any blood coming from the wounds, they seemed to be dry, but I did feel my blood still circulating. I then turned to see the bracelet, and, like with the latch, it turned on, with this message appearing on it
BLOOD LINK ESTABLISHED. POWER, 5%
After a few seconds with this message on screen, it changed to a different one.
INITIATE WARP? >YES -NO
It seemed like it wanted me to choose one of the two. I wasn’t really sure what would happen, and seeing what has happened throughout all of this, I really wish I had chosen no.
After thinking it, I decided to tap the YES just by curiosity.
THE ANSWER HAS BEEN DECIDED… ENJOY.
As the message appeared, my body slowly started to disappear, starting with my right arm. I freaked out, trying to stop it, but to no avail. As the disappearing got to my shoulder, I started to feel weak, to which I fell down on the floor, and after a few more seconds, I fell unconscious…
