Default An amazing story! - 12-28-2012, 10:10 | posts: 160 | Location: Shinra Corp.

I was surfing the interwebs and came across some pretty ory ****e, then I found this -

The Day Of Your Arrival
When did you first get "chosen"?

What happened that day and what the date was, post here.

For me it was simple, My Dad was yelling at me, I was high on ******* and screamed at him word s I can't remember saying, next thing I know I was laying on the floor in front of our gates and my Dad was beating in my upper arm while I was telling him I hate it I hate it. After that I went to the hospital because my arm felt fractured. I told the nurse that I fell down the stairs. The next day two nurses showed up in the morning and we sat down outside. The first thing they asked me was, "How Are You" In fear of incriminating myself I responded by asking them if my parents could speak for me. After a brief few questions about "MY" stability and asked them if I could go now. They said, "YES". Later when they left my Mom came to my room with a thin pink tablet that looked like my Grandad's heart pills. She told me to swallow it. After that my nightmares ended. Later on in 2007 after the entertaining world corrupted my mind I was taken by police to a hardened mental facility for refusing to delete my memories anymore. (Not taking pills) When I was there I had one smoke in my pack which I gave to another "client" there because they asked for it. Then a nurse came over and took me to a low security facility where I spent a month without sleep. After being assessed as a suicide risk I was let out from that place and told to take injections for a year which only raised my anxiety. After that I distrusted the medical profession less and less every day. Today I smoke cigarettes around the clock and am labled disabled by the law,, all because of one jagged little pill.

From ***** ****** ***** ****** *****

I took out some details for the privacy of this persons sake, but an incredibal revalation I must say. This person was dying inside and one day all this truth comes pouring out his/her dying heart. AMAZING!

Extracted from [hh] forums
OK. I just started. I'm trapped in a house in a forest and it's dark. I'm in the hall up against the wall and there is a big black Wolf hunting me down outside. Under infrared I can see the walls are covered in a pink slime and there are ghosts spirits and demons everywhere. I'm too afraid to move. Downhall to the left there is a closet opposite me around a corner. To the far end on the right is the kitchen. Behind me on the left is room. In it is a TV and video player. I'm too afarid to move. To the far left is the entrance to the house. Now I don't want to just leave because these are the types beings that follow you wherever you go. So this battle has to be faught now. I'm going into the room with the TV. I have an idea to draw all the spirits into this room. I find a video with some kind of ritual spell on it. I decide to play it. Hopefully it draws all the evil into this room. I go back out into the hall. I put my infrared back on. It's working all the ghosts are heading for that room. Now the wolf. There is a phone in the kitchen. I don't know if it works, but I wouldn't know who to call either. I'll leave it for now. In the hall. To my right behind me is a bedroom. I can hear the wolf scratching at the wall and growling just outside it. The moon is shining in. I'm stuck in the hall again. What should I do?

I go into the bedroom. On the wall next to the door is an enchanting cross hung up with the words "The Black Cross of Elizabeth Bathory" written underneith it. I take the cross and put it in my back pocket. Back out in the hall I decide to check out the closet. Inside there are towels, a vaccum cleaner, sheets and a single barrel pump-action shot gun. I grab the shot gun and head for the kitchen. I find some tape in a draw by the sink. I tape the cross to the end of the shotgun.

Mysteriously hidden in my jacket pocket I find a note. On it is written,

"Death Is Not Enough
I see palm leaves moving everywhere
Cats come to visit
Then sharks and crocodiles
Monkeys Dogs Witches and Demons
And they all die
They all die every one of them over and over again
They killed them
They killed them to stop them from helping me
They won't stop killing them
No matter how much we cry
They'll keep killing them
They'll kill them for coming to me
They won't stop
They'll never stop because for them Death Is Not Enough"

I wonder what it means? I wonder who could have written such a note and why was it in my pocket? Had someone put it there. Was it one of the ghosts?

I drop the note on the floor and head outside.

Outside it's cold and I can hear the Wolf coming. I waver the gun in the direction I can feel he will be. He approaches from around the corner and starts towards me. I aim downsite on my hairtrigger and blast his damn head off. No more wolfie. I drop the gun and go inside to call the local animal authority. the lines dead.

Back outside. I forget that I am here and light a cigarette. It tastes so good I don't care if I have to stay in this place. Out of the darkness I notice in the distance a helicopter ladning just over the far mountain. I decide that I I am going for it and go back inside to find the gun. heading towards the ladning zone I don't run into any trouble. I'm finally here now. Just to be careful though I watch to see what's happening around the helicopter. There are two men dressed in black suits and they are talking. It seems friendly enough so I go over there. They say we can take it from here and ask for the gun in my right hand. I hand it over and head for the chopper. I climb in and sit down and suddenly I feel a sense of security. I don't know eher I am going, but as long as it's away from here I am happy to do so.

4 hours later on an island out at sea away from the mainland the helicopter lands. The two men escort me inside a grey building and tell me to wait in a room.

Suddenly the doors close and I'm locked inside without an explanation.

There is a bed in the room and the room is not very big. I decide that it's been a long day so I'll use this time to rest for a while.

Morning comes and someone who looks sciency enters my room. he asks me questions about what went on in the house. I told him everything and he says well now we have a job for you.

He brings me to a room with a large screen on the wall.

In the room is a man dressed in military attire and he starts discussing acontainment of the animals who have become infected from a foreign virus which makes them hunt down and kill people. he wants me on the team who have a lead on where this virus apparently originated.

I reluctantly decline and request full military outfit for my lone treck to find civilization. They privide me with a jeep and a highpowered machine gun attached. Boxes and boxes of ammo and a stash of rifels and pipe bombs. They tell me that the next installation is a 400 mile hike down witcher's path. A notorious gang area. they tell me to radio in if I need help. But I won't. I'm doing this on my own.

5 miles down the road I enter into a bloody masacre and am unable to keep going. On the news later on that night it is reported to the country that my body was discoverd 12 hours after having been blown to pieces by 5 shotgunners 12 rocket launchers and a high powered ground mounted machine gun.

I return as a ghost and find myself waiting on the beach to meet up with a girl who lives out in the darkness of the ocean, she doesn't show up for 2 hours so I go to the hospital where I was born. Behind it is a psych ward and i wait in the carpark to check out all the action. As I am there, there is a person sitting in a car blaring garage mujsic and I notice two doctor looking people pass by him and eye him quite nastily. I decide to get in the car with this person to see where they take me.

After an arduous and relentlessly long drive we end up in the country somewhere on a long dark road. Out the front of the window there are to people standing down the road and from what I could see they seem to be arguing, a man and a woman. The guy shoves the girl and she falls over then he pulls out a gun and fires a shot and kills her. The driver with whom I am in the car with seemed to have fallen asleep and was awoken by the shot. He quickly started the car up and started to head towards the guy with the gun. I step out of the car and watch as he speeds down the road to run down this guy running the other way. The engine is scereaming and the guy running is also yelling something. I turn away before I see him get plowed and torn underneith the car.
This is too much for me so I decide to go towards the nearby lights at the top of the road.
I reach the end of the road and the next road leads to where there is a small town. I walk down the street.

There is a pub here and a lot of people inside. they are really going for it. I take a look throught the window. Music is playing everyone's yelling and drinking a lot. Suddenly a guy steps back onto another guys shoes and a fight breaks out.

The two guys step outside and go for it.

One guy grabs the other guy buy the neck and headbutts him which sends him down to the ground clutching his forehead. The guy on the ground puts his hand up to signal the other guyt had beaten him then he picks himself up and they both head back in.

This is boring so i open up a teleport and head for the airport.

After careful consideration and deciding on a location "The Wolf" took a path to the Orient no doubt for the glorious heat.

So to the Orient I head.

The airoplane was boring just sitting in the baggage compartment alone apart from the stuartdess visiting to retrieve stacked food trays periodically I was completely alone the whole time.

Upon arrival I head outside the airport where I notice a mysterious man standing outside a car waiting for the driver to open the door. This man drops a "slip" on the ground before getting in the car.

I look at the slip and it reads, "To find out what they're not telling you follow the path to the Japanese Seaboard" -The Overbios LORD.

P.S. The ship you are looking for is called, "The Grey Leviticus"

How strange. I thought. So I get in the car with these people and we head towards the docks, looking for a ship.

Getting there I followed the mysterious stranger, Jim, as the driver called him, to a large cargo ship, The Grey Leviticus. I overhear the dockmaster mention that the ship will be in dock for the next 48 hours and follow Jim onto the ship

Jim leads me past a closed door where I can here a man and woman who are arguing with someone with a foreign accent. I overhear the man saying, "Just because we were in the boundary doesn't mean we did it on purpose!" Jim caually strides past the door and I follow. We get to a storage room full of crates and baggage. He leads me to a quite large crate labelled, "Cane's Venetici SG01". He notes the label and calls for someone to unearth whatever is inside. Afterwards all the sides had been taken down their is a large pearl-like wolf statue inside. On closer observation the pearl-like structure is laced with goldvein throughout it's appearance. I suddenly have a relapse of thought. I thought to myself why would the note lead me here to see this statue and what can it have to do with the black wolf (who I thought I had killed anyway?)

Suddenly the casing of the wolf I had been hunting slits open and I can see his one-eye peering at me has he gnarls at me through the gap in the container. I run for it, and head down the hall..

A white light appears in the middle of the hall and I pause then approach it, I put my hand out and I feel the touch of someone's hand they pull me through the rift and I turn around and the rift closes..

I wonder what I'm doing in here .. and a voice calls out to me, I loof for some one, but only see clouds everywhere. I close my eyes and drift away into the clouds and feel myself falling..suddenly

SPLASH I ended up overboard. But I'm aghost so it can't be. I hear a howl and look around to see the wolf jump in after me..

He struggle in the deep water, but he cannot stay afloat and he drifts slowly down.. I look at him and he's gone.

I wonder what the f**k I'm going to do now so I just lay back and drift with the ocean..

2 days later I awake in my room and I'm typing at my keyboard. It's late and I wonder if I have enough smokes to keep me going.

I pause

Then I start typing again.

ESDRAS Chapter (5 Verse (14

Conclusion of The Vision
__________________________

________________________________________
Then I woke up, and my body shuddered
violently, and my soul was so troubled that
it fainted. (15 But the angel who had come
and talked with me held me and strengthened
me and set me on my feet.

(16 Now on the second night Phaltiel, a chief
of the people, came to me and said, "Where
have you been? And why is your face sad?
(17 Or do you not know that Israel has been
entrusted to you in the land of their exile? (18
Rise therefore and eat some bread,and do not
forsake us, like a shepherd who leaves the flock
in the power of savage wolves."

(19 Then I said to him, "Go away from me and
do not come near me for seven days; then you
may come to me."

He heard what I said and left me. So I fasted
seven days, mourning and weeping, as the angel
Uriel had commanded me.

This is pretty poorly written.

But yes, self made short stories exist all over the internet, usually with the same amount of spelling, grammar mistakes and broken sentences.

nah dont take offense buddy, ive got about as much IQ for reading as a gold fish does for memory....just not a reader. I do however like stories that are described as so vividly real, yet are founf to be nothing but a dream that then leads the dreamer to wonder..."was it really a dream.."

Well obviously me ol china plate, they are amazing for Mr.G. And this is what the pubs for I guess, doesnt always have to excite everyone...like to see him get abit more support. Ive got a small amazing story to share. A little boy in the US is very sick, he was sent home Nov 6 because docs said he had only 9 days to live. So the boys neighbour set up a website asking everyone and anyone to send the little man a card. Whats happened? Hes got over 500,000 cards so far from all over the world and every continent except antarctica ( im sure thatll change though) and the best part? Hes smiling again and more happy then hes been in ages! I think thats the tops personally, even though he will eventually sucomb hes got some wonderfu memories as do those who sent cardss. I believe you still can, why not get onboard, maybe G3D can send one on behalf of us all or better yet, we put together a little thing to see how many G3D members can send?

True Story

This morning I jumped on my horse,

And went out for a ride,

And some wild outlaws chased me

And they shot me in the side.

So I crawled into a wildcat’s cave

To find a place to hide,

But some pirates found me sleeping there,

And soon they had me tied

To a pole and built a fire

Under me—I almost cried

Till a mermaid came and cut me loose

And begged to be my bride,

So I said I’d come back Wednesday

But I must admit I lied.

Then I ran into a jungle swamp

But I forgot my guide

And I stepped into some quicksand,

And no matter how I tried

I couldn’t get out, until I met

A water snake named Clyde,

Who pulled me to some cannibals

Who planned to have me fried.

But an eagle came and swooped me up

And through the air we flied,

But he dropped me in a boiling lake

A thousand miles wide.

And you’ll never guess what I did then—

I DIED.
