Unfortunatelly I can only afford the cheapest plan where he is at home, scrolling through memes and mildly entertaining subredits. Little did I know that this plan was not as harmless as it seemed.
At first, my brother seemed content, but soon his behavior changed. He became increasingly agitated, often staying up all night and muttering to himself. When I asked him what was wrong, he would only say that he was “seeing things”.
One night, I heard a loud crash coming from his room. When I rushed in, I saw that he had smashed his computer monitor. He was standing there, shaking and pointing at the screen. When I looked, I saw a face staring back at me – a face that I recognized from my nightmares.
My brother had been seeing the same figure for days, and he was convinced that it was coming for him. He said that it was a manifestation of his own guilt and fear, and that it was trying to take him away.
I knew that I had to do something to protect my brother, so I quickly researched a way to break the connection between him and the figure. I found a ritual that required me to sacrifice something of value in order to sever the link.
I had no choice. I sacrificed my own sanity and performed the ritual. It worked, and my brother was safe.
But I’m not sure if I’m ever going to be the same again. I know that the figure is still out there, and I can’t help but feel like it’s still watching me.
