My life was great -- I had every next generation system, my friends were green with envy, and I lived in a $900,000 house. Now I am in a public library on a field trip from the orphanage!
Ok, I’m getting ahead of myself. It all started when I found this website after I heard about the Tails Doll on YouTube. I read all kinds of stories from here, old ones, new ones all that stuff. I thought it was all a load of BS. As others have done, I tried out the curse, both of the triggers. I beat Sonic R 100% and did a tag team race with SS and TD (with the help of my sister). Nothing happened. I played the music in my bathroom with all of my lights off (my bathroom has . . . had many mirrors). Nothing happened. I felt good about myself right about then, I had disproven the curse!
Or so I thought...
I went to bed the night I did the music trigger, for it was a school night -- Sunday actually -- and my sister doesn’t have school on Mondays so she stayed up. I awoke in the middle of the night and I realized I left my TV on, so I got up to turn it off. When I did so, I felt a chill crawl down my spine as a hand griped my shoulder. I jumped forward and turned around. It was my sister playing a prank on me. “Ha-ha, I gotcha little bro!” “Ah, I thought you were . . . never mind," I muttered, "How did you make me get that weird feeling?” “What weird feeling, all I did was-” those were the last words I heard from my big sister before her soulless body fell to the ground. “One down, three to go,” a sinister voice that some of us may be familiar with grumbled. The Tails Doll emerged from the shadows and tried to get me but I sped out of my room and through my house and onto the street. I waited for something to happen when I felt a grip on my shoulder again and I heard. “Can You Feel the Sunshine?” Everything went black after that and I sat up in my bed with the sunshine (the good kind) beating down on my face. Was it all a dream? If it was, then why would you be reading this? I got ready for school and went to ask my dad to bring me. I looked in my sister’s room to be sure, and I saw her body under the covers in the bed and was relieved.
My dad took me to school and I took my instrument to the band room (I played trombone) and everything was silent. No one was in the halls; it was deathly quiet except I could hear the words to “Can You Feel the Sunshine” echoing through the halls. I panicked as I realized that the body in my sister’s bed was probably her corpse, and the Tails Doll was coming for me. I ran into the band room, but it was pitch black. The door opened and I saw his red crystal float in. I could finally make out his silhouette, but he was right in my face. I couldn't feel anything -- absolutely nothing. But yet, I saw his crystal still, and then it vanished. I got up and limped to the hallway. I was trembling and I was as pale as a ghost. I think most of my soul was sucked out, but not all of it somehow. I collapsed onto the floor and a teacher asked if I was OK. I couldn’t answer, so she asked me my phone number, but I still couldn't answer. She asked me my address and I finally got the strength to tell her.
The principal took me there and my mom answered the door, and the principal explained what happened -- from her perspective, at least -- and my mom said that she had never had any children. I yelled, “It’s me, your son, Luke!” She looked puzzled at my name and said “Luke? We got this letter for a "Luke" by accident. It was delivered this morning.” I ripped open the letter and it said,
You have been spared, or have you? How will you live with no parents or family whatsoever? No riches or anything, and I can crush what’s left of your soul anytime I want. Beware, if you ever get riches or a family that loves you, your miserable life will be over. It is a pleasure making you suffer for all of your days.
Your executioner, The Tails Doll”
I now live in an orphanage as said before, and I will forever keep that letter to remind myself never to be happy again.
