howdy you can call me jack

it's not my real name but that's what I

go by for now I reckon the time to tell

you my story has come believe it or

don't but here it is I suggest you take

away the lesson it teaches even if you

dismiss it all as BS like 98% of other

stories on the Internet

but there's one more truth in this story

then any one of you could know now I've

been out of high school for three years

but that's when this particular event

takes place so I'm going to have to why

my clock back a little here to tell the

story originally from my first two and a

half years of high school I attended a

school in the deep southern part of

America close to the Gulf we had all

kinds of ghost stories growing up and if

there's one lesson our super

conservative parents taught us it was

this don't go fooling around in things

you don't understand now I was really

unpopular at my high school in the south

my first two years of high school were

real pain because I was a big dork and

everyone made fun of me I was a loner

and all I really did in class was play

my gameboy all day before rushing back

to play an MMO I was addicted to all of

that changed during my junior year when

my mother's job moved us out west

I started to attend a little Catholic

High School in no more than around 250

students it was at this time that I

finally started to fit in and make

friends no one else here knew how much

of a dork I was so I opted to hide my

power level as they tend to say in /a

and tried to make friends for once in my

life who knows maybe I could even get a

cute girlfriend if I was careful I

started to meet people at the school at

a school that small you end up knowing

everyone in your class my first day I

made a new friend named Sam and at lunch

I opted to sit with him and his friends

he told me all about the other kids at

the school who was most popular who the

jocks were so on and so forth he

introduced me to his friends too Jim a

big jovial fellow who tipped the scales

at 300 pounds Vogelman our tables

resident computer nerd and hacker and

Thomas a musician who played electrical

guitar I also met Stephanie the school's

residents spunky asian girl some of the

guys said she could be annoying

but she seemed cool enough she was into

gaming and never messed with any of us

she even seemed to think I was funny so

maybe that's why she started to call me

at home after school on some days Sam

told me all kinds of stories about her

like how she used to make snacks for the

guys at school but then sprinkle viagra

all over them or bore laxatives into

them so that anyone who ate it would

suffer the brunt of a painful and

arguably cruel joke

I just chuckled myself implied a refuse

to 'never she offered me anything

then there was the rotten backer his

real name was Jason but everyone called

him rotten backer or the kraut because

he was a hardcore Nazi he was an outcast

and the loner no one wanted to be

associated with him every day he would

wear a red swastik around back to school

just beneath his jacket where the

teachers couldn't see but whenever he

get hot and slip it off but whenever he

was changing in the locker room he'd be

wearing the armband furthermore on

Halloween and on school costume event

days when he knew he could get away with

it rotten Baca always wore an entire

replica of an SS uniform or the Gestapo

wear with a black hat and the long boots

it was a mean and angsty son of a gun

whenever anyone told a teacher about him

or asked him about that stuff each out

racial or I think slurs at them cut them

out and yell Heil Hitler

furthermore one particular thing that

caught my eye was that I couldn't help

but notice that Ron Becker always walked

with a slight limp like he was in pain

Sam told me that somebody wants her I'm

tightening a Bob Solis in the locker

room like the ones the Catholic priests

wear to punish themselves for their sins

it was a Catholic school so I like most

people just assumes at the time that

maybe he just wore the solis because

he's a devout Christian it was kind of

strange for a hardcore Hitler lover like

rotten Bakker but it was high school and

none of us prefer to think too much

about stuff like that after he got done

introduced me to everyone Sam told me

swim the school's old stories including

an urban legend that circulated around

Kaylee a girl that died mysteriously

after playing some sort of cellphone

game sure enough he could point out the

girl in the yearbook to me and everyone

record that the police had declared him

missing under mysterious circumstances

she was presumed dead almost immediately


if you ask anyone exactly what happened

no one could tell you a damn thing they

always just said it was because she

played the cellphone game Sam Stephanie

the cute mischievous Asian rotten baka

the self-torturing nazi the cell phone

game the police investigation of a teens

disappearance all of these people and

events were about to come together to

drag me into something in which I wanted

no part of it wouldn't even be over

until over two years later that I

finally answered how and why everything

went down just the way it did anyway the

last half of junior year came and went

and the long summer passed us all by in

what seemed like a heartbeat it was

finally time to begin our last year of

high school everyone was back for the

new school year pumped to start the

laziest the most fun year of our high

school lives even rotten baka still

limping around the school in that barb

Solis still spouting his garbage every

time someone decided to mess with him

the year started out eerily quiet where

it was that two more cell phone game

related disappearances had happened over

the summer to one boy and one girl from

another high school and that the police

were investigating a possible serial

killer according to the paper

the most common link the police had

found was that every person who

disappeared and received a text message

that read welcome to the game

none of the text messages have been sent

from the same cell phone so this

evidence has been dismissed as

circumstantial for me things weren't

half bad it was this year when I finally

started to open up more as a person I'd

made a good circle of friends who I

trusted and I felt more calm about being

myself at this point gradually I started

to fit in more and more and pretty soon

I was pretty popular in certain circles

Stephanie liked to hang out with me more

and more because of how funny she

thought my jokes were

if all along one day which I still

remember as one of the happiest of my

life she came to me in the middle of

campus after school and looked up at me

with those beautiful eyes and that long

black hair and a smile to die for

she asked me right then Jack you go out

with me

I laughed ran and jumped for joy of

course I well I said and danced around

with her there in front of everyone

I finally had a girlfriend I still

remember that is one of the happiest

days of my entire life if not the

happiest we went on dates

we hung out after school and she even

started to eat lunch with Sam Jim

falcomon and I every day maybe I

wouldn't have been so happy had I known

what was going to happen next it was one

day at lunch when she was sitting with

us when she mentioned that while

sleeping over with a friend one night

they stayed up late with some girls from

another high school talking about the

cell phone game she said that these

girls knew about the rules of the game

and that they had explained it to her in

great detail supposedly you can join the

game at any time by sending a text

message at midnight to the right phone

number the text message was supposed to

say I wish for the power to curse if you

did it right you would get a message in

return that said welcome to the game and

supposedly this was the reason they

given for why the police found that

message on the phones of everyone that

had disappeared Stephanie went on to

talk buy the game we all listened

attentively to what she was saying she

told us that once someone was in the

game they were in danger within two

weeks they had to complete one of a

number of different tasks or they will

be dragged away in the night I stopped

her right there

dragged away by what to where she got

silent for a moment I don't know she

whispered before continuing her story

she said that in order to protect

oneself from being dragged away you

could do one of two things the first was

to find a special protective item the

item could be anything you never knew

what it was going to be but it seemed

that whatever the item was it would make

the bearer suffer in some way this was

considered a small price to pay in

return for protection for as long as you

wore the item the second way was to

bring someone else into the game this

could be done by sending the text

message welcome to the game to someone

else's phone if someone received the

text message from someone else who was

in the game then that meant that this

person was now in the game - and subject

to all of the same rules and

consequences of the game if the person

didn't find a protective item themselves

or bring another person into the game

then they too would be dragged away the

catch about the second was this while

the protective item I found could

protect you indefinitely so as long as

you kept it with you bringing someone

else into the game would only buy you a

temporary grace period the first time

you brought someone into the game you'd

get a two-week extension then only one

week then only one week eventually the

grace period would get shorter and

shorter until you barely bought yourself

any time at all

by bringing someone else into the game

by that time you needed to have found

your protective item even though I've

always been something of an x-file I

didn't like hearing her talk about this

stuff so I told her it was a bunch of

nonsense you really think so she asked

if it's true it would explain what the

police found and imagine how cool that

would be to be able to cuss anyone who

messes with you by bringing them into

the game you could get rid of anyone and

no one would ever know

there was an edge in a voice I'd never

heard before from Stephanie she almost

sounded intoxicated at the thought of it

truth be told and scared me a little

don't go talking like that I told her

stuff like that's beyond people like you

and me we shouldn't go messing around

with stuff like that what if you got

involved in it and then it all turned

out to be true

what would I do if something happened to

you promise me you won't go messing

around in that stuff she gave me a funny


I never thought you would be the kind of

person to be scared of silly stuff like

this Jack well I don't think it's right

to mess around and stuff you don't

understand you know I gave for a concern

look now promise me Steph promise you

won't go try it

she sighed in annoyance fine fine I

won't play the scary cell phone game are

you happy now

I told her I was but truth be told I was

scared I didn't believe her in all the

time I'd known her I had never seen her

betray anyone or sleep around or

anything but she had always been a

trickster and the liar

and would lie to anyone about anything

if you got her ahead without hurting

anyone else but to be honest I always

thought that he was kind of cute and

just accepted her as one of her quirks

but this time it was serious so a few

days later when she came back and told

us that she had joined this cellphone

game I was mad what are you thinking

Stephanie you promised me you wouldn't

do that yeah yeah I know it's not only a

big deal I've already got it all planned

out besides if it's true and it works

it's too good of an opportunity to pass

her she held up a phone look she said

giddily and text messaged was open in

the screen which read welcome to the

game kind of freaky huh I got it just

after I sinned it takes at midnight just

like the girls said my jaw dropped I was

speechless and scared stiff this game

couldn't be for real cut it Stephanie if

this is real then you're in danger now

you've only got two weeks to find the

protective item I know that's why send

the text message to Rebecca I'm good to

find out if it's true or not I hit the

roof you did what

but Stephanie if this is real and that

makes you as good as a murderer

you cursed Rebecca and now she could die

because of you relax jack I don't

actually believe in any of this stuff

but even if I did Rebecca has always

been a big-time ass it's not like she

doesn't have it coming anyway she

giggled that same mischievious giggle of

hers that I'd always loved

this time I wasn't loving any part of it

a couple of weeks passed and nothing

happened but then one day Rebecca didn't

show up at school at lunchtime Stephanie

was sitting around with us as usual when

the assistant principal came to talk to

us all with a megaphone may I have your

attention please

and from God silence the police have

reported that one of your fellow

students Rebecca has gone missing

Stephanie's golden skin turned white she

froze her parents are very worried about

her if any of you know anything about

this please come and talk to me after

school that is all Stephanie I whispered

I was very afraid for her I was very

afraid for what she might do she looked

at me and said don't say anything just

don't she got up and bolted from the


I chased after her Stephanie Stephanie

what are you doing

she kept jogging away from me herself

Roman out don't try to stop me jack if

I'm going to survive I'm going to need

more time I can get another week if I

curse someone else and that'll give me

three weeks to find it Stephanie listen

to yourself who you going to curse he'd

kill someone else for a little extra

time look what's happened to you she was

starting to cry I know damn it but I

know who I'm going to curse no one's

gonna miss them I promise

Stephanie that's not right you can't do

it no one deserves this let me help you

we could find a protective object for

you together she turned and showed me

her cell phone

her textile box had a message which read

welcome to the game she had sent it to

rotten baka I started to weep I grabbed

onto her tightly as I could

Stephanie Stephanie I love you I'm so

sorry this isn't right

none of this is right she held onto me

and began to cry deeply as well we held

each other there for nearly an hour like

that I still remember it like it was


then that night before he went home we

both resolved we would start looking for

a protective item and the next day the

next day I was walking with Stephanie

along the track after school when rotten

backer approached us with his cell phone

he was furious he held it up to her face

is this your idea of a joke he said

followed by some racial slurs truth be

told I felt rotten Becker had the right

to be a little angry sure he was a Nazi

pervert freak but with all the whispers

of murder going around I couldn't

imagine anyone being angry about getting

a text like that but even so I wasn't

about to let anyone talk to my girl that

way hey buddy watch your mouth it's no

way to talk to a lady lady

Rawdon Becker sheltered this horse not a


she's an ass and she tried to kill me

how about you kill that other girl too

didn't you Rebecca she's missing coz of

you isn't she

Stephanie begun to cry I pulled my arm

back and punched as hard as I could have

run back his face he stumbled backwards

a few steps and grabbed his lip from

which trickled a little stream of blood

but he kept his composure

laughs we expected him to swing back at

me but he just stood there after a

moment he spoke you don't get it do you

Stephanie I'm already in the game I

always have been you know the score but

unlike you I never cursed anyone else


I said if that's all true then how you

still suddenly I remember the Solis

rotten back a war around his leg that

caused him to limp in agony and what

Stephanie had told me at lunch whenever

a new protective item was discovered

whatever it was it would cause its

bearer to suffer your protective item

you have won Stefan his eyes lit up it

was clear that she had realized the same

thing that I had rotten Bacchus marked

that's right so I just figured your

girlfriend better know that she didn't

get any additional time for trying to

curse me I've already been there and

done that

Stephanie looked up at him with fear in

her eyes days passed and try as we might

Stephanie and I couldn't find anything

they go qualify as a protective item we

were approaching the 2-week deadline and

she was looking more and more scared by

the day her hair was a mess her usual

bubbly personality was glum and

distraught she stared off into space

during classes and prayed constantly

after the two-week deadline passed we

were both terrified she came to me at

school and said Jack I want you to sleep

with me tonight

stay with me all night don't let it get


I couldn't refuse I showed up at a house

lay that night and came in through a

window we slept together it was

bittersweet she went to sleep holding me

but I lay awake most of the night

watching and waiting until I finally

fell asleep around 4:30 in the morning

from sheer exhaustion the next day when

I woke up all I could think was

Stephanie had looked around frantically

she wasn't in the bed next to me

Stephanie I said louder as I climbed out

of bed and began to search for her I

walked into a kitchen don't be so loud

her voice said it was Stephanie's I

turned around to see a sitting at a

round table in the kitchen she was

smiling and seemed as giddy as ever

I breathed a sigh of relief my parents

have already gone to work but I don't

want the neighbors to get suspicious and

say something I wept with relief it was

over and she was safe nothing had come

for her I ran across the kitchen floor

and hugged her and kissed her all over

everything was perfect for two weeks

then I came to school one day and nine

of her classmates and disappeared

including Sam everyone was in a row no

one knew what had happened to them or

where they had gone no one except from

me and the person who had done it

Stephanie if the amount of time extended

was hard each time you brought someone

into the game the nine people would have

brought her just over two weeks which

meant that her time would be running out

again tonight I confronted her about it

after school Stephanie the police are

getting serious you can't do this

anymore and I can't watch you do this

anymore it's wrong it's evil

she looked at me silently I still

remember the look in her eyes that day

at this point it had become clear to me

that the girl I had known and loved was

long gone and what remained was a

soulless wicked shell which clung to

life and fear death more than anything

but even so I still loved him more than

anything she was my first and only

girlfriend and I couldn't let it go

I couldn't let anything happen to her

it's okay she said I won't do it anymore

I've accepted what I need to do and I'm

going to do it no one else is going to

die because of me

Stephanie are you sure maybe we can

still find a protective item for you if

we look now she looked down sadly

there's no use in running from it now I

just want to spend the night with you

tonight okay

one more night together that's all I ask

I was heartbroken everything was too

melancholic and too melodramatic I was

so sad at hearing her words are the

thought of her being taken away I threw

up I vomited and register over and over

again into a nearby garbage can trying

to fight back the endless stream of

tears that night she slept with me again

sick weak and tired I passed out from

pure exhaustion at 3:00 a.m. less than

an hour later though I awoke with a


stephanie was gone i sat up and looked

around in terror then found a note I

read it

Jack I'm sorry for lying to you again

but I'm not ready to die yet it sure

went down my spine I continued to read I

figured out what I need to do don't

worry as I promised no one else is going

to die because of me why could she be

thinking I looked round my room suddenly

I noticed that the 45 caliber my father

had bought for me for my 18th birthday

was missing from my room and everything

made perfect sense that's why she wanted

to spend the night with me tonight she

wanted my gun she was planning to go

after rotten Baca and take his

protective item as fast as I could I

throw on some clothes and bolted for my

truck I sped off towards rotten backers

apartment when I got there the lock had

been shot off and there were voices

inside I pushed the door open what's

going on here I demanded and looked


stephanie was holding Braaten backer at

gunpoint with my 45 the apartment walls

were covered in pictures of Hitler and

swastikas they were whips and chains

scattered around the bedroom floor

rotten Baca was stomping around in

long-sleeve pajamas and cursing at her

in his typical neo-nazi forum screaming

at her about home invasion and calling

the police and this and that

he was even wearing a stupid armband it

was obvious this guy was a lunatic

fanatic Stephanie screamed at him shut

the hell up she fired around at the wall

behind him and winced I remember my ear

ringing from the loudness of the gunshot

and a sharp pain in my inner ear but I

was too tense to worry about it at the

moment now give me that Bob torture

thing you're always wearing or I'll kill

you right now

her voice was all malice rotten Bacchus

stood in place for a moment and slowly

began to remove his pajama leggings

you're making a big mistake he said

you just accept the way things are and

die with dignity you're not going to get

away with this

he removed the Solis from his leg from

which trickled a small amout of blood

and handed it to her immediately she

slipped it onto a leg with one hand

fumbling with my pistol as she tightened

it until it hurt and her own Lake began

to bleed a little let's go Jack she

whispered and turned to leave I started

to walk out with her from the apartment

I heard Rawdon back as shouting he won't

get away with this he's going to come

phew and he's going to drag you off to

hell for what you've done you're going

to pay for all those kids I could see

that she was song and little as we

walked away I was sick I was disgusted

with everything I was disgusted with

Stephanie for being so cruel and selfish

and I was disgusted for myself for

seeing all of this and seeing the signs

and not doing anything to stop it but at

least now it would be over as we walked

back to my truck I said a small prayer

for Rutan Baca in the hopes that he

could find a new protective item within

two weeks he may have been a racist

bugger but in a way he was still better

than Stephanie if what he said about

never kissing anyone else was true and

he didn't deserve to die just for that I

drove Stephanie home she was exhausted I

would have given her a kiss on the cheek

but I was too sick and just wanted the

whole ordeal to be over goodnight

I whispered to her goodnight jack I love

you she whispered back and climbed out

of my truck and went back to her house I

started to drive home exhausted from the

day's events suddenly my cellphone began

to vibrate

I picked it up it was a call from

Stephanie we answered


the first thing I heard was a shriek ba

Lobo it sounded like the noise of

pounding at the door

Jack help he's here he's here and he's

coming for me

what hold on Steph I pulled a u-turn in

my truck and sped off back towards a

home Stephanie was becoming more frantic

suddenly on the other end of the line I

heard the sound of a door being bashed

in followed by another shriek I could

hear Stephanie screaming at the top of

her lungs

the hideous blood-curdling scream I

still remember every moment of it

perfectly and I remember her screams

word for word no no I don't want to die

adrenaline surge through my heart and I

fought the accelerator no no no stop she

screamed the gain and I heard what

sounded like the phone hitting the floor

and Stephanie screamed getting further

and further away and then dead air

Stephanie Stephanie

Hansa me dammit getting no response I

hung up and called the police

when I arrived at Stephanie's house the

front door had been smashed in I parked

my car on the lawn and jumped out

carrying my 45 caliber pistol with me I

ran inside surging the halls everything

was in slow motion then I came to

Stephanie's bedroom I turn on the lights

inject all the corners with my pistol

leading the way at length I lower the

gun there's something caught my eye

in the center of the room Stephanie's

cell phone lay and the floor next to her

bed in the middle of the room in the

carpet was a very small patch of blood

there wasn't more than a few drops but

the most chilling sight of all was that

from the edge of a bed to the door of a

room which led out into the hall was a

trail of claw marks that she had left

has something or someone had dragged her

away to a doom I went out into the

street and through

again I could hear the sirens coming in

the distance days passed then weeks then

months the police did investigations

they questioned me time and time again

and every time my stories were all the

same I told them the truth

as I knew it as unbelievable as it was I

don't think they believed me but all of

the evidence supported my story and

there was nothing to implicate me in any

of the crimes so at length they finally

let me go things gradually went back to


our class eventually recovered from the

losses of so many of our classmates and

over time my mind kind of accepted what

had happened until it seemed like a

distant dream I graduated and moved on

to college but there was one thing that

still bothered me through it all and

that was rotten Baca he had been exactly


even though Stephanie had taken his

solis he never vanished in the way that

she and the others did but there is one

thing that I do know and that is to this

very day

if you ever see rotten Baca he's still

always wearing and red Nazi swastika
