I knew that day that something was going to go wrong. I kind of have a sixth sense for trouble. No one knows why I disappeared for a whole nine hours, then returned back with cuts on my skin. All I remember from that day was running away from a murderer, but every time I got killed, I went to the same exact area I started out in. I was stuck in the popular Roblox game, Murder Mystery 2. My name is Zachariah Rubio. This is a story on my weird experience, of being inside of a video game.

I was playing Roblox Murder Mystery 2 in my pigsty of a room. Well, my Mom says it is. But I call it living. I had just got killed by another fellow Elite murderer, with the Xmas knife. As I said, ‘fellow Elite’, I was Elite as well. I have always been jealous of the other players, because they had better things than I did. Better knives, better guns. And all I had was two Gody Seers and an Overseer gun. I was also sad because I rarely played on PC, so I was stuck with a phone, which meant I couldn’t trade. I thought that if I had two Seers, I would eventually find someone who could trade me for another Godly(obviously on PC).

But, what I was also not sad about was that I had a lot of items in my inventory. I have at least 60 -70 assorted knives and guns. Mostly commons and uncommons. I like giving low rank players some uncommons or a rare or two. I like giving to others. But, I don’t have a PC. But, what I did have, was a Mom that was calling me down for dinner at this very moment.

“DINNER!” Mom yelled, which was pretty excessive, due to the fact that she was standing right at my door.

“Sorry, Mom. Didn’t hear you.” I replied innocently.

“How could you not hear me? I said it normally at your door five times.” I walked past Mom and down the stairs. I could hear my Mom hear have a deep sigh.

“Why do you play on your phone up there, while you could do it down here in the living room?” Mom asked.

“I don’t know,” I said. “I just like the privacy.”

“Well, you should at least play out here in the living room. In fact, there’s a surprise waiting for you in there after dinner.”

I ran to the kitchen, and demolished my Mom’s Spaghetti and Meatballs, with homemade Garlic Knots. After I ate way too fast, I bolted for the living room. There I at the entrance to living room, I saw something in a rather large box(Of course it was wrapped). There was also a little bow star on it. I walked toward it and ripped a strip from it off. I could already see the side of what looked like a computer screen. After seeing that, I couldn’t hold the suspense, and ripped off all of the wrapping.

There in front of me stood an Apple PC. I knew that my Mom couldn’t fathom how much this meant to me.

“Oh my, God. I can’t thank you enough. It must have cost a fortune!” I exclaimed.

“It doesn’t matter how much it cost. The only thing that matters is how much it means to the person,” Mom replied, her big, bright dimples showing the size of a baseball.

“Thank you, Mom!” I don’t typically do this, but I ran over to her gave her a big hug. “I’ll get this set up.

 

I woke up the next morning, my PC set up and ready to use.

“Bye!” my Mom yelled. I had forgotten it was a Monday and Mom had work.

“Bye!” I hollered back.

“Make sure you get what you need to get done. See you this evening!”

I heard the door open and then close, the door being locked as well. I didn’t waste any time in getting into game. I had downloaded Roblox last night. I opened it and immediately went to Roblox Murder Mystery 2. I knew what I wanted to to immediately. The first low-ranked player I saw, I pressed the Trade button. Remember when I said I have sixth sense for trouble? That sense came tingling as soon as I pressed that trade button.

I felt a sudden force pulling on me towards the computer. I looked at my hands, and what I saw was something I wish I hadn’t seen. My hands were slowly becoming pixelated and being dragged into the blinding computer screen.

I woke up on a hard, concrete clearing outside some buildings. There was a gate at one end, and a entrance to a building. I decided to walk into the building.

This is all too vaguely familiar. No….It can’t be. I thought to myself, not wanting to know the answer. But I already knew what the answer was. I was in the lobby of the Roblox game Murder Mystery 2.

 

The rest was all a blur. All I remember was the pain from the different knives. I just sat on my chair, looking into the computer. It glowed with malice, and I shut it down.
