  • I walked into the kitchen and sat down at the table. I looked with a grimace at the questionable video “game” that had been placed in front of me. Of course I’d never be able to tell this virtual monster how disgusted I was with having to cook, play, and clean up it’s excrement. But somehow I think it knew. It was always full of energy and life, but lately I had begun to grow more aware of its presence as it insisted on beeping at me every 30 seconds. The bright, exuberant eyes that it once had were now beginning to grow dull and listless with the long fatigue of a weary life caused by my lack of giving a shit, and general enjoyment at watching it slowly die of hunger as I refused to feed it. It cried , it begged, and yet nothing this pitiful creature could do could sway me from my mission. The Tamagotchi had to be destroyed for the good of humanity. If allowed to live they would eventually mutate spawning all sorts of unspeakable horrors. They could one day stop looking like monsters. They could blend in, camouflage themselves as innocent creatures like dogs and horses. No one would see the evil they were a party too until it was to late. No it must stop here. I must not fail.
