'A True Story This Time'

By @QueenOfKaetar

Bea is famous for telling stories, so when she comes to her friends about the strange things happening to her lately, they brush it off as another one of her elaborate schemes to get attention. Little do they know how much danger their friend is really in... (for the end of summer writing contest)

Why would you go to the closest place? Did you even look at the ratings?

QueenBea has started a call

natthecat has joined the call

“Hey, Nat, can you see me?”

“Nah, my video’s been all wonky for a few days now.”

“Okay…”

“So, there any reason why we switched to call?”

“Well… I know it’s silly. Jaz probably would…”

“What?”

“I’m scared that she can see it.”

“She? Wow. You’re really going all out with this one.”

“The lady at the shop. Nat I said this isn’t just another story! It’s real!”

“Okay. Whatever you say. So you refused your email. To the lady.”

“Oh yeah. So I was like to the lady nope noppity no thank you, and she was just like okay sure and she kept on smiling like this creepy barbie doll.”

“Ooh Barbies are creepy. I had one when I was a kid and its head fell off… It still creeps me out to this day”

“Nat! This is important!”

“Yeah. Sorry. Finish your story.”

It’s not a story. So I went home, and I was like wow that was creepy, but hey! I got my tattoo with my compass that points North, like I’ve waited for, for like an eternity.”

“Where is this going… might wanna tweak that bit next time you tell it.”

“Nat… I said this is all true! I have a point. So I look down to admire my tattoo and the pointer thingy is pointing West, and it’s shorter.”

“Crazzyyy. That’s actually pretty cool. You should keep that bit.”

“Uggh. So I think she made a mistake, and I’m real mad but kinda freaked out. So then I’m messing around on the internet, when I get a notification for an email. And the email is from the tattoo place.”

“But you never gave her your email! Or did you mess up?”

“I didn’t.”

“Oh! I see where this is going!”

“It was so weird. And when I open up the email it says ‘Hi there! We hope your compass tattoo is to your liking! We’ll be seeing you soon! Just follow the compass to find us!’”

“Woah.”

“Mm hmm. And I look down at the compass, and now it’s pointing East. And it’s like an inch shorter than it started.”

“God…this is good. You should get it published!”

“Nat! This is all true! The tattoo has been spinning and getting shorter for a week now! I’m not lying! I have proo—damn”

“What?!”

“It’s another email…”

“Bea…this is getting creepy…”

“‘We’re here! We knew we’d find you!’”

“Bea… what’s going on? You’re scaring me!”

“Hi there Beatrice! We’re so happy to see you again!”

“Wh—what are you doing here?”

“Bea! This is getting scary! You can stop now… I’ve had enough—”

   “AHHHHHHhhhhgg…”

    “Bea? Bea… Bea are you there?”

   “Bea! This isn’t funny!”

    “Bea?!”

    “Bea?”
