Shadows and Sickness

Everyone was too busy taking care of a sick persona to notice the person in the shadows, waiting to make the perfect appearance.


1. Shadows

"We can't both survive at the same time." The shadow was slowly coming closer. Virgil sat against the wall in too much pain to get up. He was trapped. "one of us has to go and I'm afraid, my friend you are already almost gone." Virgil could hear the coldness in the shadow's voice.

"Why don't you show your face?" Virgil stated trying, but failing to sound confident.

"Now why would I do that?" Virge heard the smirk in the voice.

"Maybe you're too much of a coward," Virgil remarked. The person hiding in the shadows looked at him and Virgil could see his smile.

"You want to see me? I'll let you see me." The person took off his hoodie and smiled. Virgil stared shocked at who he saw.

" are you... here?" He stuttered. "We...we got rid..of...of you."

The person smirked. "Things always have a way of coming back." He replied. Virgil tried to stand up and fight but found himself falling.

He kept falling.





Eventually, he found himself in a room. Virgil looked around and saw that it was Thomas's living room. But where was everyone?

"Looking for someone?" The voice seemed to be everywhere, but nowhere.

"Who's there?" Virgil hesitantly called out. He looked around for the person who spoke but saw he was alone.

"Please..please don't do this." He heard Patton scream.

"PATTON!!" Virgil ran up the stairs only to find he was once again alone.

"Who are you looking for?" The same voice rang throughout the house.

"What do you want?" Virgil asked not exactly sure who he was talking to. He walked back downstairs. The house was unbearably silent.

Virgil started getting anxious, he had a feeling something bad was going to happen. A scream erupted throughout the house.

"Logan?" The darker persona tried to find where the scream came from. "Logan! Where are you?" He yelled in the house. Getting no answer he fell on his knees.

"What...what is going on?" He asked no one in particular. The house once again went silent.
"Virgil?" He heard Roman's voice. Virge looked up. "Please help." He looked around. The house was empty.

"Please, Virge." He heard Patton beg.

"Why don't you help?" Logan's voice stated. All the voices seemed to come from everywhere and nowhere.

"Virgil. Please. Help us." He heard Thomas's voice begging him.

Virgil put his hands over his ears. "Make it stop!" He yelled trying to block out the voices.

"Hi Virgil," this voice was right in front of him. Virgil looked up and saw someone standing there. He was hiding in the shadows, so it was hard to tell who he was.

"What do you want?" Virgil's voice sounded weaker than he wanted it too.

"You should know by now what I want." He stated. "and it seems to be working."

The shadowed person grabbed Virgil's arm and made him stand up.

"You are a coward." The person stated. Virgil looked up and saw Roman, Patton, Logan, and Thomas. They all looked broken.

"We can't exist at the same time. One of us has to go and you're already starting to leave." Everything faded into darkness and the voice echoed over and over again.

Virgil sat up. The images from his nightmare still clear in his mind. He laid down again and tried to sleep. But every time he closed his eyes the images came back.

After a while, Virge just decided to give up going back to sleep for the night.
