The Glowing Red Eyes

It was one of those usual Friday nights. Work had been hectic, I was tired and happy to have a relaxing weekend ahead of me.

In order to relax I entered Smeet. Collecting some Boosts, clicking in some of the rooms and a bit of small talk with other users. For days, however, I noticed this completely black avatar with glowing red eyes which appeared every once in a while in public spaces and then disappeared. Nobody seemed to notice him, so I didn't say anything. Until this specific Friday.

As I got even more tired, I logged out of Smeet as usual, closed all the windows and switched off my laptop. The plan was to close the laptop, stretch one last time and go to bed…that´s what I wanted to do at least…

Suddenly there was an unexplained noise coming from my closed laptop. I went back and opened it again to see what happened. Two tiny bolts of lightning appeared on the display, looking like something black was moving over the black screen. It seemed strange, but after a while it just stopped and I thought I was seeing strange things because I was so tired. So I closed the laptop again and went straight to bed, but pulled the plug on the laptop out just to be sure…

That night I was restless. I dreamed of glowing red eyes in the dark of my bedroom and about strange noises. The next day I was happy that I had just dreamed it, so I started the day as planned. On my way to the bakery I had already forgotten about my dream and was looking at the window displays of the shops that lined my route to the bakery.

All of a sudden I heard that strange voice again. I stopped immediately and checked my surroundings, realizing that the sounds were coming from the electronics store I was standing in front of. I couldn't believe my eyes as what I saw on the TV sitting in the display chilled me to the core. Two glowing red dots staring at me. Some letters appeared above them, forming the words “Fire! Quickly!”. All the other people around me didn't seem to see them so I searched for my smartphone to photograph it, but the screen of my mobile phone stayed black. I could hear the scary voice again, but this time it seemed to come from my mobile where I could also see two glowing red eyes forming. I panicked, dropped the phone and ran home. Arriving there I realized there were sparks coming out of the plug socket so I cut the power and tumbled into my rocking chair. Just for a second… catching my breath…

While doing this I must have fallen asleep because all of a sudden I woke up with my head on my desk and I saw…

...my laptop was open and running, I was still in Smeet, the lights were on and it was Friday Night!

UUUUFFFFFF… just an ugly dream.

Relieved, I closed the laptop and went in the direction of my bedroom… as I walked away, I didn't realise that two glowing red eyes were following my every move from the TV...
