2:30 PM

I just got home from school. I think mom and dad are going out tonight. But I’m not sure. For now I’ll just sit around and watch TV…

2:45 PM

“Jason, we’re heading out tonight.” Mom just walked into the room.
I replied, “Okay. What time will you be back?” I clicked through the channels, trying to find something good to watch.
She glanced at her watch and said, “Uhh, We’ll be back home before midnight for sure.”
I nodded and asked one more question before I let it exit my mind. “What time are you leaving?”
Mom laughed, and said, “Haha, so eager to get the house to yourself?” She smiled and ruffled my hair, the way I hate, but I smiled anyway. She just loves me is all. “We’re meeting the Smiths at five. So we’ll leave around 4:30.”
I nodded, and went back to watching my shows. The Mariners were playing tonight, and the pregame stuff was already showing.
When my mom and dad were both out of earshot, I got out my cell phone and called my girl friend. “Hey Jason,” she said through the phone.
“Hey, wanna come over to my place tonight? My parents are going to be gone…” The suggestion in the sentence was clear to her, and she giggled. It was movie night.
No, I didn’t mean that when I told her my folks weren’t going to be there. I’m not a bad kid. But my parents hovered when I was with my girlfriend. We could only be together if they weren’t in the house.
“Yeah, what time?”
“Around 4:30. I’ll call you when they’re gone.”

4:00 PM

Mom and dad just walked into the room again. Mom was fretting about some piece of jewelry, and dad was assuring her it was around somewhere. They were getting ready to go out with the Smiths.
I had stopped flipping through the channels a while ago. I’d settled on Spike to watch CSI. It was a particularly gruesome one.

4:36 PM


Mom and dad just walked out the door.
“Money for dinner’s on the table, Jason! We love you, see you later!”
Mom closed the front door behind her and I heard the car’s engine start. It pulled out of the driveway, and when I couldn’t hear it in the road outside anymore, I got up and flipped open my cell.
I dialed my girl friend’s number, and when she answered, I said, “It’s safe, come on over now.”
I could hear the smile in her voice as she said, “I’ll be right over!” and then the little bzzt as she hung up.

4:48 PM

I heard Danni’s car pull up my driveway, and made my way to the door. I opened it and leaned against the door-frame until she made her way up the front steps.
When she kissed me on the cheek, I smiled and hugged her close for a few moments before bringing her inside. Clouds were gathering in the west, covering the clear blue sky.
I tilted my head. “Did the weather channel say it was supposed to rain tonight?”
Danni looked up and around, and shrugged. “I dunno. They said something about a bit of rain I think…”
I shrugged, and led Danni to the couch. I held up two movies. One was a chick flick I knew she would love, and the other was a horror film she might also like. She picked the chick flick.
I smiled and as she sat down on the couch, I popped the DVD into the player, and grabbed the remote.
I took it to the couch and sat down next to Danni, putting my arm around her in the process. I smiled when she leaned closer and sighed.
And then the movie started.

6:00 PM

The movie just reached the point where the guy confesses to the girl and they kiss. I know Danni was thinking about me, and I was thinking about her. We both sighed a little, and she snuggled up to me a little more.
I covered us both with the blanket that was at the other end of the couch. For some reason it was cold in here…
And it was still overcast.

6:30 PM

The movie just ended.
Danni and I were both really cold by that point, and I went to the thermostat to crank up the heat.
We’re going to order some sandwiches from Jimmy Johns with the money my mom left.

7:18 PM

Dinner just got here, and I handed the money to the delivery guy.
I gave Danni her number 16, and took my own number 2 to the couch to eat.

7:46 PM

As we ate, we talked about school and people, the usual.
But she said something that kinda worried me.
When I asked her, “so where are you going to college?” She’d been accepted at Harvard and our community college. I hadn’t made the cut at Harvard.
“I think I’ll go to the community college.” She’d said, after a slight pause.
I blinked. “Why? You got into Harvard! Are you going to pass up that opportunity?”
She sighed, and said, “I don’t think my family an afford it…” I knew it was a lie; she’d gotten a million scholarships. “I just think the community college is the best place for me.”
That’s where I was going.
I sighed, and said, “Danni… don’t throw away your dreams for me… I’m not that great.”
She frowned and put down her sandwich. “Yes you are! You’re worth everything to me! I’ll do whatever you want me to…” She blushed and looked down. “Tonight…”
I didn’t say anything, and we both continued our meals.

9:00 PM


After eating and messing around online for a little bit, we decided to watch the horror movie I’d picked. I knew Danni would scream a few times, and she’d probably cling to me for half the movie; but that part wasn’t necessarily a bad thing…
I looked out the window, a little concerned. It was already really dark. Almost pitch black.
It wasn’t usually dark until after nine at this time of year. There must be a big storm on the way…

10:00 PM

The movie’s turning out to be a real horror film.
And the thunder outside doesn’t help. The storm just hit, and Danni’s really scared now.

10:05 PM

The power just went out. Danni screamed, and I held her close as I found the flashlight.
But before I could even turn it on, the lights were back on and everything was better. Danni shivered, and said, “Maybe we should stop the movie…”
I nodded. The movie was too scary for a night like this.
“Um… is it cold in here?”
I nodded again. It had gotten cold again; even colder than it was before.
I made my way to the thermostat again and turned the heat up more.

10:58 PM

The storm’s still going strong, but the power hasn’t gone out again. The internet’s not working though. That sucks, because I was going to put on some music I have on an online playlist while Danni and I played a game of cards. I went through my bookmarked pages to see if any of them would go through, and found out Crunchy Roll was still accessible.
“Weird. I can only get on Crunchy…”
Danni came up behind me and wrapped her arms around my waist. She leaned her chin on my shoulder. “I wonder why… Maybe there’s something up with the server.”
I nodded, and turned around and hugged her.
For a while we just stood hugging, but then she reached up and kissed me, and before I knew it, we were on the couch.
I realized what was about to happen, and said, “Wait… this isn’t right.”
She kissed me again and said, “How do you know?”
I shivered, and said, “Not… not now Danni… Not like this.”
But even as I said it I kissed her.
There was a sound from the door, and that made us both stop dead and scramble to get up. If my parents walked in on us like that…
I went to the door and peaked out the peep-hole. But there was no one there.
And the moment was ruined now. When I got back to Danni, it was awkward.

11:20 PM

I just got a message on Crunchy from some random person.
“This is true if you don’t send this 2 15 peeps in 15 mins the AX MURDERER will come after youuu!”
I rolled my eyes and deleted the message right off the bat, and said, “It’s amazing how many idiots there are in the world…”
Danni nodded, but glanced out the window, where the storm was still howling. “Is this storm ever going to let up?” She asked quietly.
I shrugged. “I dunno…”
She shivered and said, “Well, I’m not going home in that.”
I nodded. I guess I’d just have to explain to my parents why she was here and deal with their hovering.
I looked down at my computer screen and again, a message was in my inbox. The same person had sent me the same message again.
It said “0 seconds ago” in the header.
I deleted it.

11:26 PM

That dang message again. And again, it said “0 seconds ago” right when I went to my inbox.
I wondered how this “ember1116” could be sending me messages right when I looked at my inbox, but whatever.
The message was stupid.
I deleted it yet again.

11:35 PM


By now the storm was even worse. The wind was howling, and the lightning flashed every few seconds. Danni and I were sitting at the computer, chatting with our friends from school on Crunchy. Their internets were working fine.

Jason_Man08 : Man, this storm is pretty bad, isn’t it?
mink76452 : what?
Jason_Man08 : The storm. It’s pretty bad, isn’t it?
IWantUrSox10 : What are you talking about? The storm ended an hour ago.
mink76452 : haha Jason you’re up to your old tricks again?
IWantUrSoz10 : lol xD
Jason_Man08 : What? The storm’s still going strong. Danni and I can hear the thunder…
IWantUrSox10 : whatever man.

11:45 PM

Damn, this is getting creepy. Three times since the last message, that Ember girl has sent me that message. All of them said “0 seconds ago.”
It’s getting creepy.
And the storm is STILL raging. I would have thought by now it would have ended.
I think Danni’s really wanting to get closer to me… She doesn’t seem bothered by the storm any more, and she waves the messages off like they’re nothing.
“Jason, why are you so worried?” She sat next to me on the couch. I’d decided to just get off the computer; it was freaking me out.
I shrugged. “It’s just… creepy.”
She kissed my neck and said, “It’s not creepy if you don’t think about it.”
I shivered when she kissed me, and said, “Danni, I told you… not now. Let’s… wait.”
She frowned, and said, “But I don’t want to.”
I frowned too. “Danni, you’re not acting like yourself…”
I got off the couch, and went back to the computer, confused and a bit irritated.

11:54 PM

Danni seems like she’s in a bad mood since I rejected her… But I really don’t know what else I could have done…
I’m back on Crunchy… there’s nowhere else to go. All the other sites still won’t work, and the storm is still howling outside. And it’s cold again. I already turned the heat up more, but it hasn’t helped. And when I checked the thermostat said it was 98 degrees inside.
I think it’s broken or something.
And I got another of those messages…

11:58 PM

Another damn message!
This one was different though. This one said I had only 2 minutes.
Danni’s being really quiet.

12:00 AM


I got on Crunchy again and that message was there. But this time, when I deleted it, the screen went black.
The lights went out again, and there was a white dot on my screen.
“Danni?!”
I hadn’t heard her scream when the lights went out. She always screamed when the lights went out.
I reached for the flashlight, and turned it on. But Danni wasn’t on the couch where she had been.
“Danni? Is that you? This isn’t funny!” I waved the flashlight around to find her.
She was nowhere to be found.
I looked back at my computer. The white dot in the center of the screen was moving now, shifting into a different shape. It was a human head. It was Danni’s.
My computer spoke, in Danni’s voice.
“Jason, you didn’t send the message.”
The lights turned on and I heard Danni scream. I looked up to see Danni on the ground, with an ax in her back.
I tried to run but the next thing I knew, IT was inf-

8:57 AM, the following morning

The police officer called to the scene writes in his notebook.
“The victims, a Jason Cregg and a Daniel Freeman, both appeared to have ax wounds. The only evidence of a struggle is a clump of black hair in Jason Cregg’s hands. No suspects.”
