It was another long day at home. The nightmares are keeping me up most nights, so it's difficult keeping up the high standard of excellence my family and school expects from me. Yesterday, I took a chance and tried an incantation I thought I remembered from the "Necronomicon Ex Mortis." Roughly translated, "The Book of the Dead." From the movie "Army of Darkness." I hoped the recitation would stop the nightmares. A "Nictu Gashru Umuna Anothera." I figured they'd get the idea and buzz off. But no dice.
The nightmares are bad. "Replica Soldiers", "Project Origin", flashes of my long history of kicking their asses.
But something isn't right. The video game "F.E.A.R." is strong. It's as if there's some large evil building up and preparing to burst. Sometimes the creatures known as "Phantoms" actually get to me and slowly tear my flesh with their jaggeged teeth, roll the meat between their gums and make me listen as they chew with their mouths open. Then they use their nails to rip the... well you get the idea. The images are bad.
I keep strategy guides and my own files as a reference in case I need to play the game again. It's been too many years, and there's nothing worse than gettin' the ol' controller and forgetting how to get the XBOX360 started. I'm willing to play the game again so that I can confront my fears and take the nightmares head on. It's gonna be a rough ride... -Scott
