Me and my daughter always loved video games, especially Zelda, Mario Kart, and Sonic games. One day, my daughter Erika was playing in the ditch and she pointed down to something. This caught my interest, so I ran to her. She was autistic, so she may have found a garden snake.
I come and see what appeared to be a Sega Saturn game, specifically named Sonic R, virtually undestroyed in any way possible. I went around the neighborhood and asked everyone about it. They said that they did not have a game like this. I went around other neighborhoods, no one had anything about it, though I found multiple houses wanting the game.
I gave up the search for the owner, so I put it in the Saturn and played with my daughter. What I saw was amazing. All of the Sonic characters were unlocked. All, except for one. I tried finding cheats, but I only found out that the characters that were unlocked were the only characters on IGN and the Sonic Wiki. We started a race, to which Erika won. It soon said, "Challenger Approaching". I wondered why would this happen. I soon found out why.
When the race started, no Sonic characters were in sight, exept for Knuckles, who was Erika's character. Erika was going around the course and found what looked like...Tails? She dropped the controller when it switched to fake Tails. The camera panned to a dead Sonic. He was all grey, and his eyes closed. I grabbed the controller and controlled the Tails. It looked back and I saw its face. It scared the hell out of me. No eyes, bloody body, and a gem on his head. I knew this wasn't Tails, because I read the pastas about it.
It soon went in a direction and ended up near...Link? Link was right there! He is not supposed to be on another system other that the Nintendo systems! He looked at the Tails doll and it looked at him. It looked like they were conversing. I barely heard what they said, but I could make it out:
Link: Dammit! Why are you still here!
Tails Doll: Because, I am the new god of the universe.
Link: Get the hell away from me!
Tails Doll: Play with me.
Link: What the hell?!
Tails Doll: Play with me. Play with me. Play wi-
It paused for a moment and looked at me, so did Link. It said in a deep, almost demonic voice, "What the hell are you even butting in for? We are having a conversation you dumbass!"
I paused, as the thing could not have noticed me. Link then said, "Leave him alone Tails Doll! He did nothing!" The doll then slashed at Link, making him crash to the TV, breaking it.
The doorbell rang and I answered it. Nothing. I closed the door, and it rang. Nothing. It rang one more time and I saw the Tails Doll.
I was thinking, "Holy shitfuck! That fucking asshat is real!"
I looked next to it, and I saw, almost crying, a Link doll, with the same gem. I grabbed the dolls and took Link with me. The Tails Doll then followed me. It was flying. I rushed upstairs, and remembered that Erika was downstairs! I immediately ran downstairs and to my shock, the doll was gone. Nowhere to be found.
I looked at Erika and saw that she did not look the same.
She said, "Why daddy? Why did this have to happen, daddy."
I knew the Tails doll was near her, because her eye was getting bloody. I told her to get up and she did, and I saw it, the Tails Doll. It bled from its eyes, mouth and ears. It was gross. The Link doll was not immobile as well, and now, it started to go after the Tails doll.
I grabbed Erika's hand and my sword. We went upstairs and she suddenly stopped. She said that she didn't want to go in there. I knew that the closer she got to the doll, the more she would bleed from her eye. I told her to go downstairs and if anything happened, to call the police. I went into the room after a bit of hesitation.
The Link doll was laying on the bed above a pool of blood. I knew he gave it his all, but died in the process. It was me versus the Tails Doll.
It asked me, "Will you and Erika play with me? Forever?"
I told it, "Get the hell away from us you damn Slenderman knock-off."
It came at me with its claws and I narrowly dodged an otherwise lethal attack. I swung my sword, but its ability to fly would make it impossible to hit. I swung again, but it caught the sword and destroyed it to bits.
It came at me and slashed my back, making an enormous gash. I took the advantage and grabbed the damned doll. It twisted its head back and I almost threw up. I put it under my foot and slammed it to the ground. I picked up the doll and ripped its arms off, then its legs, but even though it was bleeding profusely, it would not die.
The last thing I saw was the gem. "Of course!" I thought.
I grabbed the gem and ripped it off of the doll. It let out a horrible screech and blasted into dust. The Link doll also blasted to dust. I went back to get Erika, and I grabbed her hand.
She asked, "Is it over, daddy?"
I told her, "Yes, it is over."
I threw down the gem and destroyed it into pieces and sent it and the game to Japan's Sega facility. I wondered if the calamity is all over. Do you wonder? Well, it is over, and the doll is gone, and so is the damned game. But now, the doll is still following us to a lesser extent and not physically. I drew an illustration of what my daughter looked like because of that doll.
Today I got a box. I read it and opened it. It was from Sega and it included a Sonic R and a Tails Doll. I thought again, "Holy shit, not again. Dammit Sega, I am returning this." The doll disappeared, but not the Sonic R. Now I think about where the doll now is. It must have gone away. The gash returned on my back.
