My World Is Crashing Down around Me


For those of you keeping track, Allyson has been living with me for the past week. And while I should be dancing in the streets for joy, it’s actually been just one nightmare after another. Everything you are about to read is true, as horrific as it may sound. And no, the fact that I’m making this post on Friday the 13th is not lost on me.

They were building some type of scaffolding/platform in the assembly place where the man with the sunglasses and megaphone delivers hate-filled tirades almost daily. I couldn’t figure out what it was for until one day they dragged one of us up there. (When I say “they,” I’m talking about anyone in Kijuju who has the crazed look of a rabid wolverine in their eyes. “Us” refers to anyone like me who still thinks, looks, and acts like a normal person, someone who is just confused by the madness gripping Kijuju.) That poor man; he struggled to free himself from the horde as they dragged him to the top of the scaffolding. Two men held him down at the top, and then the largest mountain of a man I’ve ever seen walks up out of nowhere carrying an ax the size of a small car! He had a black sack or hood covering his head, and just looking at him filled me with dread. I felt my legs go weak. I knew by the pit in my stomach what that ax was for. This was an execution. I turned away from the scene just as that giant beast started to swing his ax into the air. There was a moment of silence (maybe I imagined it), and then a hard THUD. I knew it was over when I heard the mob’s wild shouts start up again. I looked back and saw the decapitated head roll down to the bottom of the scaffolding. At that point my legs gave out and I just collapsed on the floor. Allyson ran over to me. She tried to look outside to see what had given me such a fright, but I pulled her away from the window. There’s no need for her to see that.

When I have dared to venture outside, usually after the mob in the square has dispersed, the only people I see are “them.” They walk listlessly, without much vigor, but their eyes... their eyes are filled with what I can only describe as rage. They stare me down something fierce every time I pass them. I can feel them drilling holes into the back of my head. Everywhere I go, I know their eyes are on me. That’s why I tell Allyson to stay indoors as much as possible. It’s not safe for her.

The people are no longer the only oddities around here. Every other wall is covered with graffiti, usually the same one or two words written over and over again. Animal corpses that have been savagely ripped apart are so common that it’s become impossible to walk without tripping over a rotting carcass. I’m pretty sure that some of the body parts I’ve seen were human, but I didn’t want to get close enough to find out.

One day I saw someone being dragged behind a building. He was struggling to escape, but the man who was dragging him was too powerful. I half wanted to know what was going on, half wanted to just ignore it. Unfortunately, I couldn’t leave well enough alone, so I carefully made my way toward the alley where the two men disappeared. When will I learn to stop letting my curiosity get the better of me? There was blood all over the walls and it looked like the stronger man was eating the weaker one. I’m not sure if that‘s what I saw, but it looked like his head was wrapped around the other man’s. I just ran from there as fast as I could.

I saw a group of people kicking something in a large burlap sack, just like the ones that they set on fire a few weeks back. When I passed near them, they stopped kicking it and just stared me down. I could have sworn the sack was moving. Was there some kind of animal in there... or was it a human?

I also saw someone throw a human corpse down a well. Then there’s this crazy guy running a food stall who just waved his carving knife around wildly. It looked like he was selling intestines or some paste-like substance. I almost vomited in my mouth when I saw it.

The weirdest thing I've laid eyes upon recently has to be the dog I saw with some leeches or tentacles on his face. I don't know if it was sick or had gotten infected by a parasite, but it was the strangest thing I've ever seen. When the dog looked at it me, it growled, and all the tentacles stood on end before it ran off. Don't ask me to explain it, because I don't know what it was.

As I type this they’re dragging another one of us up the scaffolding. What the hell is wrong with this place!? What the hell is going on!? If there’s anyone out there who can help me and Allyson, please come and save us! Anyone! Please hurry!

  1. You and Allyson need to get out of there now and contact the authorities! This has obviously gotten way out of hand.

  2. Sir I've been reading your blog and I don't know where you are or what is going on but I really advise you to contact the authorities. I cannot myself because I don't know your location, this Kijuju you speak of isn't on google maps.

    I really fear for your safety. I am deeply disturbed by some of the events you have described in your previous posts.

    Since you have access to blogger I'm sure there are other ways to get help, I urge you to do this immediately.

  4. It's time to make your last escape, Adam.

    Before you make a run for it, take a moment to pack a few items. If you have a crank handle laying around, you should probably take it. You never know. You and Allyson should definitely equip yourselves with guns. Last time I visited Kijuju I couldn't help noticing there was ammunition everywhere. Crates of it, barrels of it, even boxes of it in piles of fruit. So long as you have some guns, the ammo won't be a problem. No guns? Pack a knife, then go buy some guns. Not enough cash, stranger? Well, you should be able scrape some together from all the boxes of money that also seem to litter the streets over there.

    Once you have your equipment sorted, kick open your door and RUN! Just remember to stop and stand still when you want to fire your weapons.

    Good luck. If you both co-operate you will survive this horror.

  6. Four more weeks.
    Adam wake up and realize you are in a video game.

  7. Well Adam, all I can say is that you made your grave, now lie in it.

    From this point on, everything that happens to you is YOUR fault. Countless of times, we have told you to leave, and to heed the advice of those who obviously posess more brain power than you do. Apparently, you didn't take this advice.

    Well Adam, I suggest you email your family, and make funeral arrangements for you and Allyson, because I don't see any way out of this perdicament. It's too late to leave now, and it appears that even if you had all the chances in the world you would not leave.

    There is a parable about a man, who was caught in a flood. This entire city was flooded, and even so, he didn't lose faith that God would be take care of him. His entire house and everything was flooded, and the water was about up to his waist. Luckily, he had a two story home.

    So he waited. The first day, God sent a rescue raft, with people to take him to safty. But he refused, and said, 'God will take care of me'.

    The next day, the waters rose, and he was stuck now in his attic, with no food or clean water left. God sent a rescue ship, with a fully staffed medical crew, but the guy refused, saying only, 'God will take care of me.'

    Finally, the water completely flooded his house, and he had to wait on the roof now. By now, most of the people in the city were dead, or rescued. Remembering that there was still someone left, the survivors urged the military to send someone to get him. They sent a helicopter, with a ladder, and asked the guy to climb aboard. Again he refused, and the helicopter left.

    The next day, the man died, and when he met God, he asked, 'Why didn't you save me from the flood?'

    God said in reply, 'I sent you a raft, a ship and a helicopter, but you did not take it. What else did you want me to do?'

    Don't be that guy.

  8. Don't even worry about procuring weapons. Time you waste shooting and fighting is time you should be locating routes out of Kijuju and into the nearest neighboring country.

    Even then, do NOT stop until you've managed to get in touch with some manner of authority and inform them of the situation in Kijuju. Call it a large-scale, bloody riot, a revolution, whatever, but don't give them the details about... a man eating another, you said? I find it tough to wrap my head around that idea (no pun intended, sorry, it was unaviodable!) and I'm certain no military, law enforcement, paramilitary, or even a pharmaceutical company are going to take you seriously if you speak of that.

    But the speeches, the execution, the large crowds, the mysterious circumstances leading up to this situation? Tell someone about it. Don't just blog it. Get a solid knife, crowbar, even a large pipe wrench will suffice for defense unless you find something better. Do not let your guard down, you and Allison sleep in shifts. If you have a gun and ammunition, use it only in the event that you can't, under any circumstances, get yourself and your lady love to safety without being attacked by an overwhelming force.

    Aim for the knees, and the shoulders. If an enemy cannot chase you, or crawl after you, it is no threat.

  9. You know Adam there are faar worse things that can happen on Friday the 13th than just looking at executions...For example you could be homeless...you could be sick...hell, you could even be dead.

    Now instead of writing for help on a blog, your best bet is to...oh, shall we say...call the proper authorities. And PLEASE don't tell me that you are unable to call someone. Allyson should have a cell phone, and the last thing I need to hear is that you guys have a weak signal.

    Tell ya what. My buddy Chris works for a group called the B.S.A.A. and they're supposed to be this group that deals with crazy people. I'll put in a word to have some of the guys check out Kijuju as well cause from the sound of things there might be some plague or outbreak going around there.

    Anyways, go out to a movie and see the Jason remake if you get the chance. It's not half bad.

    Cheers,

    Mr. $

  10. Mr. $,

    I saw that remake. I still say the original was better, but not by a whole lot--you can only eke out so much from the Kill Bleed Die Wahey formula ;)

    Adam,

    In addition to what I posted earlier today, I'd like to stress at least picking up a crowbar before you run. It's a very useful tool for opening crates, forcibly unlocking doors, and can double as an effective weapon in a worst-case scenario (which is what it sounds like you're going through)

  11. I tell you the big guy with a big ax is a Boss. If you have to combat with him, get very close. Because he can’t use the ax in short range.

    the guy who bit the other seems like a zombie! Now that you have a so intense curiosity, you should stop risking your life again,I told you,Curiostity kill the cat!

    As to the crazy food stall keeper, after you get used to Chinese food, you may not really give a damn… :)

    Call B.S.A.A. Chris Refield can save you and your princess Allyson!

    Good luck. It seems that you’re a reporter who is risking his life to report the truth.

  12. I know that a group called BSAA will go to Kijuju , you could wait until they get there

    one member, called Kirk Mathison, will go to Kijuju with a helicopter, it's a good chance you'll get away with Allyson

    if you can't find Kirk, look for Josh Stone, Chris Redfield or Sheva Alomar, they are well trained and I think one of they can ensure the safety of you and Allyson

  13. I really think you should try to get out as fast as possible...my situation seems to have improved, but yours goes from bad to worst...

    Good luck...

    (you'll need it).

  14. Man, get out of there! Like other post find the B.S.A.A!

  15. Okay, now THAT'S scary.

    Adam, I haven't been able to keep in contact with many of our guys lately. Dave is part of the mob, and I saw Mark and Mary get dragged off by the mobs. if what you say is true, then they're both probably dead...

    I still have contact with Josh, but he's in no position to help me. And neither are you from the looks of it.

    This is Raccoon City all over again, man. If you find a way out, let me know. I'll do the same.

  16. I've no time to plead or pine
    I've no time to wager
    When the money's on the line
    Out comes a stranger...

    Up and down the city road
    The monkey chased the Jackal
    Coil the snake and turn the lock
    hear the Raven cackle...

  17. Kijuju!,

    Get out of there now.

  18. Adam get the hell out of there! "te van a hacer picadillo"

  19. Adam, listen carefully, this may be your only hope!

    You have to get a phone, or use your internet connection to contact some people in Japan. I'm not sure of the names, at least one of them are called Takeuchi-san. But you need to contact one of them, they will be able save you, but you only have a few weeks before it's too late.

    Tell them to access the code (don't think about what this means, I'm not even sure myself), open up enemy.c and go to line 4,201. That line should say "Adam_npc.health = 100;". You NEED to convince them to change that line to "Adam_npc.health = 65535;". This is your ONLY chance!!!

  24. Man. The more I read this, the more I think that this is a horror movie. Now listen to me. I've covered wars, you know.

    First off, don't walk, run. The guy in the mask seems like he would be slow. If someone's in the way, take a shot of liquid courage and run him over. If he has a weapon, go around. If this means through a window, do it. If you can't, wait for him to throw it, dodge, then run him over. Green herbs will help if you get injured.

    Secondly, if you see a vehicle, commandeer it. If there's any gas around, fill it up. If it's too way back, don't bother. If the vehicle's empty, keep running. If you don't know how to pilot it/drive it, do it anyway. ANYTHING is better than where you're at.

    Thirdly, get a weapon. A crowbar is a good melee weapon and you can get a lot of use out of it. I also recommend a Shaolin Spade if you can find one. Of course, if you can find a gun, grab it. If you don't know how it works, the side with the hole at the end is where the bullet comes out, pull the trigger, if it's a shotgun, you probably have to pump it first, if you don't know how it works, learn by doing.

    Finally, if all goes wrong, if you're cornered, if you are face to face with death with no way to do battle, drop trou.

    Seriously. Promise me you'll do this. Horror and male nudity cannot co-exist, and if it doesn't work, you can honestly die saying you've tried everything.

    Oh, and stop reading these. Seriously, why are you here in the first place. Go survive.
