It was a regular day for Craig Maison, a regular day like any other day. He was on his way to school, thinking about how his life became so boring. Every day was the same for him. He woke up, got ready for class and went there, got home and played video games until he went to bed again. 
 
As he neared his school, he felt a sharp pain in his head. It took him a few seconds to come by and as he did he noticed there was no sound to be heard. He panicked and started looking around him and saw everything in motion as how it usually was. He shook his head and before he realized all the sound came back to him. He was in a shock for a second, until the schoolbell rang and he rushed to class. Time went by slowly like usual, and he couldn´t stop thinking about what happened this morning. 
 
His friends Morrigan and Pino saw Craig was acting weirder than he usually was. He'd usually be staring out the window, but today he was actually paying attention for once. Although they thought. Craig wasn't sure what was going on, still thinking about what happened this morning he started panicking again. ''Am I gonna go deaf? Is something horrible happening to me?'' All these thoughts crossed his mind. Pino sat next to Craig and asked him what was wrong. Craig wasn't going to explain her though, she wouldn't understand. 
 
Class is over and Craig rushed home. He was scared the same thing would happen again so started running until he got near his home. But then.. he felt the same sharp pain in his head as this morning. He kneeled over 'cause it was hurting more than before. A glass shattering noise was heard. Craig was in pain. Too much pain to notice the world has gone red and soundless. After a while the pain vanished, he looked up and stared. ''What happened?!'' Craig couldn't believe it, he thought he was still dreaming. He entered his house and screamed for his dad, but his voice didn't come out. He spoke but there was no sound. He quickly went upstairs and grabbed his iPod and plugged in his headphones. He started playing music, but to his surprise he was able to hear the music. 
 
He searched the house for his dad and mom, but they were no where to be found. He clenched on to his iPod 'cause that was his only ''safe'' object to know that he wasn't going insane. He went back to school to find Morrigan or Pino. He walked into town, everything was empty. No people to be found whatsoever. All of the sudden he heard a scream, it didn't sound human. Whatever that was it wasn't human. In fear he turned around only to see a black slime approaching him at a quick pace. He started running, but he couldn't out run the black slime. He hit something hard. Craig looked up and saw a same exact black slime infront of him. He thought this was the end. 
 
The black slime bend over him.. Craig was in despair, he was going to die right here he thought. Suddendly he heard a female voice.. ''Could that be? IS THAT ..?''
''Craig, take out the headphones from your iPod!'' He listened to the voice and pulled out the headphones, music played at maximum volume. The black slimes screeched and flew away. Craig started crying as to how happy he was. ''Thank you!'' He screamed. A small, girl-like shadow approached him. All the lights in the street turned off. ''Thanks, this is exactly what I needed to defeat them.'' said the voice. 
Craig felt terrible pain in his chest.. He looked down and realized he's been stabbed. Blood was gushing from his chest. The shadow takes his iPod, and walks off. Before it went out of sight it turned around. ''Sorry for having done this to you, Craig'' Craig's tears wear rolling down his face. The one who stabbed him was Pino. He fell down, and died.
