While The World is Going Crazy

He had gotten weird fanmail before but these were serious threats...


1. Chapter One

Mikey's hand was shaking as he hung up the phone, he'd been through all this a thousand times before but it still drove him insane with rage. He expected the crap that came with the fame, the fans at every turn, the incessant attention, the obsession bordering on stalking, it was all just part of the job for him, but his family, his family were a whole other issue. People could follow him to the ends of the earth if they wanted, there was nothing he could do about it, but when they went near his family it put him on edge.

He didn't pay attention to the letters anymore, the weird letters that used to scare him but now he just screwed up and tossed in the bin without a second thought, but now his family were getting them and he felt the same fear he'd felt the first few times it had happened to him. 

He ran his fingers through his hair and took a deep breath trying to calm himself before dialling Dave's number, "Can you come up mate I need to talk to you about something?" 

Mikey laid back on his bed and stared at the ceiling as he waited for Dave to show up. What made someone do something like this? What made someone feel like they had nothing better to do with their life than send weird letters to him and his family? He just couldn't understand it, and he knew that he probably never would. 

The knock on the door made Mikey jump and he shook his head at himself as he walked over to the door, he had no idea why this was getting to him so much, he knew that the likelihood was nothing would come of the threats but something was nagging away at him telling him that this time it was different. 

"Everything alright mate?" Dave asked as Mikey opened the door. 

Mikey shook his head, "Yeah I'm sure it's fine, just thought I should let you know that i've been getting some weird letters from a fan." 

He was desperately trying to sound calm and brave but his hands were still shaking and he knew he looked a mess. 

Dave sat down in the desk chair and looked at Mikey seriously, sending a chill down Mikey 's spine, "I didn't want to have to tell you this but you've been getting a few weird letters of your own." 

Mikey 's face screwed up in confusion, "I know and I've been chucking them out like normal." 

Dave shook his head and fixed Mikey with another serious look, "No these were different, they went to the record company and… me." 

"You?" Mikey 's eyes flew open in shock. 

"I got a note under my door yesterday basically telling me to keep an eye on you." Dave sighed, "It was on the hotel's note paper." 

Mikey felt his stomach wretch and he ran to the bathroom but as he gagged over the toilet bowl his stomach was empty and nothing came out. He felt as though his whole body was screaming at him that his worst nightmare was coming true and he should have known better, he should have done something to stop it becoming reality. 

He felt Dave's hand on his shoulder and forced himself to get it together. 

"It's gonna be alright mate." Dave attempted a reassuring smile, "Is it ok if I call your parents and tell them to get the police in Dublin involved at their end?" 

Mikey nodded. 

"I'll be back in ten minutes." 

Mikey listened as Dave left his room and shut his door firmly behind him, more firmly than he'd ever shut it before, and he felt his stomach lurch again. Someone was threatening his family and there was nothing he could do to stop it. He should have known.
