I'm hiding underneath the sheets right now, because I know it's hunting me down. I just know it.
This crap all started a couple of days ago. After seven years of fruitless search, I discovered the myth, the one everyone wants, the one with the almost sacred Pokédex number by now. Mew.
ROUTE 8 SAVE
CITY OF WATER
TOWN OF PURPLE
THE CRY OF THE MYTH SHALL REVEAL ITSELF
I followed the steps I deciphered from the Unown in the theme of Lavender Town, I did everything necessary to catch the legend. The menu popped up, I pressed B (I didn't know what else I would have to do) and voilá, Mew revealed itself. I was almost peeing myself with excitement by now, all my efforts were finally going to be worth it all.
The cry of the myth, Mew, my Mew, revealed itself, and I was so happy. With a lot of effort, I managed to seal it into a Poké Ball forever. It was mine.
That's when things went haywire.
My cell phone was the first thing to show signs of 'insanity', as I prefer to call it in my position as it is now. The theme of Lavender Town began to play continuously, without me putting it on. The sound was soft and eerie. What's more to this: I did not download the theme, it downloaded itself.
I dismissed it - what else could I do - and went to school the next day, like every other day. But every time I would put on a song while riding the bus to school, just before it would play, I heard a familiar cry. Mew's cry. Freaked out a little, I decided to shrug it off, I was probably imagining it. However, nothing could be further from the truth.
In class, the song began to play again, and again, no matter how many times I turned my cell phone off. It would turn on by itself all over again and play the song, that dreadful melody. An angered teacher eventually sent me away, and as I left the classroom and turned back one last time, I saw a familiar shape in the reflection of the window.
I told myself I was just tired, after all, I had had a night of really bad sleep. Left the class, got a note, went back to class to hand in the note and then went back outside, the normal procedure at our school, but in every window I looked on my way, I saw the little cat-like creature. The cold glance in its eyes frightened me.
It gave a nasty glare and then looked away, sudden grief glinting in its eyes.
"You were the one I trusted," I heard it speak. "And even you betrayed me, you were captivated by my perfection, weren't you? You were the only one who could keep my secret, but you were hungry for me as your own, weren't you?"
I shook my head, it simply couldn't be true. "No..." I whispered, more to myself than to the reflection of the window, and walked off.
The theme of Lavender Town began to play once more.
