This story is a submission to a writing challenge from the Metroidvania Month Jam Discord server (https://discord.gg/kDkGQNAWVC) where you write a story daily during the span of a week and whoever gets the most votes wins a nice role. The challenge started on March 1, 2021.
For this challenge, I decided to get 3 words from a random word generator and use it as a prompt. I got television, quote, and sleep. From there, I came up with an idea for a short horror(?) story.
I'm posting the same story I'm using for the challenge with minimal editing (proofreading and stitching parts that could have been together but were posted on different dates to follow the challenge's rules).
