i tried so hard to read the 6th member of afterglow event story, i really did. the event was fun, the challenge songs were all excellent, and ran’s spooky outfit in particular was extra cool. everythign about this event set it up to be my favorite at least until the next pastel event probably, they have a habit of stealing my dad heart
bt i couldnt finish the frickin story. do u know why, fam? for all of my roasting it turns out that i mightt be the most roastable of everyone here. i am an actual scaredy cat and. i got scARED IM NOT EVEN JOKING
i already had a feeling the event was going to be scary and thats why i put it off until today. i thought if i waited i could gather the courage to just pull thru and read it.
the opening chapter was wonderful, i was laughing and enjoying it. 1st chapter starts to make me a bit iffy bc i realize that this story is literally gonna take place in a classic horror setting.
i only got as far as the 2nd chapter y’all. it was so freaking quiet and my stomach was twisting a little, i felt slight anxiety also . i basically felt how ran did but ran was making me feel even worse.
as they were going to leave i was like internally screaming “pls yes oml just leave, pls pls run” but then the doors are locked . and te h music that starts playing at tht moment fricking made me qui t. i immediately closed the app and jsut. someone hold me lmao
i knew i couldnt take it anymore bc i looked at hey day capriccio song lyrics, theyre saying some straight up creepy ish. “game of tag” “hide and seek” stuff like that fam. and then there’s that part where the backup is like “nO NO, DONT LOOK BACK” and rans like “creepin creepin wwuuuuUUUUGghgfg”
like girl can u shut up omg ur putting me on edge. what the hell u mean dont look back?? who is creeping and why are they creeping??? im not about to play tag w/ no damn ghosts. thats why ur gettin chased thru the school cause u wanna sing about demonic hide and seek pattycake with evil goblin monsters. the heck is wrong with u, this is why the pastels are my daughters, u wont find them getting chased thru the woods late at night by some serial killer and then write a fricking song about it later
so thats my confession fam i was being a punk and im ashamed but look, i aint no actual punk. i just have a low tolerance for horror and i got took tbh
