Glitching

Intro

Tomatsu - ~What is this, am I drowning?  Ah wait, it's dinner time. They'll be expecting me soon. Better finish this quick.~

 I  headed towards the surface
The clouds were black and filled with murderous lightning. It looked black beyond the horizon, with roaring waves threatening to swallow me up. I needed to find a boat quick. I frantically looked around.There it was, a few meters away directly behind where I was looking.There was a thick rope drooping on the side. I swam towards it, getting knocked by waves over and over again.

Tomatsu - "gahh!"

A huge wave struck me from behind, and made me crash into the boat.I helped myself up. It was a tiny thing, but I knew that there was no reason that it couldn't handle these waves. After all, It wasn't real There was a fishing rod hanging on the side, glowing and blinking.I grabbed it by instinct.Immediately after I did, the string started reeling.It took all my strength to keep it on the boat. I couldn't let it go, that would be a huge problem. I did'nt think I'd ever find it in This ocean I used the little knowledge I knew, and my instincts, to pull the rod and reel it in. It didn't take too long, before a swordfish jumped out of the water, the hook stuck in its mouth.The instant I saw that, I pulled as hard as I could.It was kind of funny, it flung to the boat, and landed beside me.At that moment, I heard a cha-Ching! Sound, and a bright light enveloped me, to release me once again.

Mom-"TAMOTSU, IF I DON'T SEE YOUR ASS  DOWN HERE IN 1 MINUTE, YOU WILL REGRET IT!"

-sigh- just in time then. I got up from my bed and made my way to the dinner table.

Tomatsu -"bleh what the heck"

 I said to myself, intentionally having my mother hear me.
She made curry again! Gosh you'd think that she would make something different, but she's only good at making curry. Anything else and you'd be asking for burns or extreme dryness.

"Shut up tamotsu" my sister,  Ayako said.

 She never holds back anything she has to say.Well whatever, "itadakimasu" I said dully.

Ayako-"what were you doing up there anyway oniisan? Took you long enough to come down here"

Tomatsu-"nothing"

Ayako-"yeah surree, you were probably doing something perverted."

Tomatsu- "shut up Ayako! We're Eating dinner"

Ayako-"ohh so you're not denying it huh, groooosss"

Tomatsu-"tch geez"

Mom-"what are you to talking about at the table?" my mother menacingly asks

Tomatsu&Ayako-"NOTHING!" we reply simultaneously.

After that we ate in silence

Tomatsu-~Ohh dammit I'm gonna be late!~Should I skip?... Nahh today's Monday.

I made my way out the door with a granola bar my mom left me, and took off on my bike. Kanagawa was probably the most boring school you will ever go to. It is old, but it goes under construction every year. I pretty much go through almost the same routine everyday.

Akio-"oiii tamotsuuuu! Good morning!" akio cheerfully greeted me. He grabbed my neck like he always does.

Kahori- "thank god you wear deodorant akio, tamotsu might die" says kahori"

Kahori-good morning guys" she said politely.

Tomatsu- "morning kahori" I replied

Akio-Akio's grip tightened "what's up With that, reply to her but not your best friend? You sexist bastarrrd"

Tomatsu- "you grabbed my neck'" "anyway let's get to class"

These two I've known since I was little. But we mostly talk at school. Anytime we get a vacation, my mom would take us to a relatives, and on weekends, I'd always be out.  As a result, these two don't have to bear my curse.I was very fortunate to have a seat right next to the window. School was never anything to complain about. Everything was fairly easy, although I'd disappoint myself whenever I see others with perfect grades, but I never motivated myself to do any better. Daichi was one of those guys, he had perfect grades, and a great attitude. I'm not the jealous type, I admired him. But I'd be lying if I said i didn't wish I was like him. Akio introduced me to daichi 2 years ago, during our 9th year. They went camping together, and ever since I've acknowledged daichi. You could say we're friends, compared to others, but I did know akio a lot better of course."brrrring!" ~finally lunch time~ I grabbed my lunch from under my desk, as soon as I did akio slammed his lunch box on my desk.

Akio- "geez, today's lesson is confusing!"

Tomatsu-"do you have to be so loud man?" I said to akio

Akio-"haha sorry"

 Daichi joined us after he bought his lunch. While they talked about the lesson, well, after daichi promised to lend akio his notes, kahori and her friends came.

Akio-"hey guys!""ay kahori! What do you for lunch today?" akio greedily asked"

Kahori-noo way akio, I'm hungry today, gotta prepare for softball!"

Akio- "awww"

Haruki- "here akio, you can have some of mine"

Akio- "thanks Haruki!"

Haruki was a friend whom I had known for a long time. Unlike kahori's brown hair, and masumi's black hair, she had long auburn hair, and bright hazelnut eyes too. The only reason I can talk to her now is because she became friends with kahori. No one knew that I admired her, cause I tend to keep to myself. Masumi was the class president. She was prideful, and confident in herself. She never liked me though. I always thought that she was just shy, but last year at akios birthday party, when we were alone, she yelled at me for being a dull idiot. I couldn't blame her, i did seem to show that persona. Even now she looks at me with nothing in her big black eyes. If anything, she'll look at me with hate. ~She probably would be a good match for daichi.~ I thought to myself.

Kahori-"well I gotta get going, softball practice starts soon. Later guys!"

 kahori left

"byeee" we all said

Everyone was in a conversation. Masumi was Discussing with daichi, akio was speaking with Haruki, I felt out of place. Before I knew it though, lunch time was over. After school I met up with the art club. To be honest, the only reason I ever go is because Haruki was there. She was so talented. She could cook, draw, and write amazing things.Our assignment today was to make a flip note, to exercise for a claymation that we're going to work on as group together. Haruki was the club president was Showing a lot of enthusiasm.I began my flip note. At first it was just a ball bouncing towards the end of the note, but then a person caught it. He threw it at the other wall and it bounced back toward his face. He ended up swallowing the ball. And started bounding around.

Haruki-"hahaha that's so cute" a familiar voice said over my shoulder

It startled me so much that I dropped the note.

Haruki- "I'm sorry, here" Haruki picked up the note and handed it to me.

Tomatsu-th-thanks" I said pathetically.

Haruki- "haha no problem. You're good at drawing tomatsu!"

Tomatsu-"n-noo you're much better"

Haruki- "haha thanks. Wanna see my flip note?"

Tomatsu- "yeah. O-okay"

 She picked up her flip book and was about to begin. It was pretty hard to not look at her face.Her flip not started with a seed. The seed burst and began to release a stem. It bent towards the sunlight, and became an enclosed flower. When the sun set, it released its petals, and opened up. I was speechless.

Haruki-"what do you think?"

She asked with those adorable eyes

Tomatsu-"wow" was all I could say.

Haruki-"hahaha you're so weird tomatsu"

Tomatsu-"haha yeah.."I left with my head down.

Daichi-"hey tomatsu, will you accompany me?" daichi asked

Our houses were closer than the rest of my friends. It was on the way so if we went home together, I never minded.

Tomatsu- "yeah sure"

Maumi-"hey daichi! Wait up!

Tomatsu - " oh no" I thought

Daichi-hey Masumi, wanna come with us?"

Masumi- She didn't look at my face when she replied "yeah let's go!"

I said the rest of my friends, but in truth, Masumi was my neighbor. Daichi and Masumi talked mostly the entire way, occasionally daichi Said a few things to me.

Daichi- "well, here's where we split, I'll see you guys tomorrow!" daichis house was farther then ours was.

Tomatsu-"later"

Masumi-"bye daichi"

We both walked and didn't says word for a while. I didn't care anyway. I was just on my way home. I was even trying to quicken my pace to get away from her, after all she couldn't stand me anyway. It didn't seem like she was paying attention anyway, but she was a pretty fast walker. So I decided to slow down while she went ahead. She was going to fast though, and not paying attention, she was about to walk off the sidewalk without thinking. I quickly ran and grabbed her back. Just as I did a car sped in front.

Tomatsu-"oi! What the hell are you doing!" I yelled.

she just stood there frozen for a Moment. Her eyes were wide, as if she was remembering something.Then she whirled back and slapped my hand off.

Masumi-"don't touch me!"

Tomatsu- The nerve of this girl."then watch where youre going!

Tomatsu- Do you WANT to die?"

She couldn't say anything, but just stood there for a second. Then she burst into tears and hugged me.

Masumi-"wh-huh?" "to-to-tomatsu!" she was bawling.

 And I had no idea what to do.I didn't hate this girl, and she was crying. I instinctively hugged her back and pet her head.

Tomatsu-"it's okay.."

For some reason, that moment was really long.Then she let go, and ram home. After I got my head together, I did likewise.

Tomatsu-"I'm back"...no response.Seems like mom and my little sister aren't back  yet.So it's obvious what I had to do.

I went to my room, took out a box of video games from my closet.A lot of these games were so nostalgic. I'd play them with my father all the time.My father fell into a coma when I was 5. The cause unknown but the docters said it might have been stress.but his time is limited, apparently he wont have much longer to live, and that frightened me to no end.

The next day a package came for me , inside was a  letter. It read: tomatsu, if you ever relieve this message, chances are I am dead or unable to come back to reality. Tomatsu, you possess a curse that you inherited from me. You will have this curse until you succeed 3000 times from its effects. Behind this letter are instructions and restrictions regarding this curse, copy them down and burn this letter. Your mother or sister cannot know about this. Some videogames you play will be 'testable' , where you will participate as its main character and challenge it. When you succeed, it will count as one of the 3000. You must hurry, and complete this task as fast as you can. I have failed to do so, but I believe in you. Goodbye Son.

 So I figured that unless I conquered thus curse, he'd never come back. I couldn't understand anything he said that day, but I figured it out the very next day. I was playing a game where I was in a ship and shooting aliens. A few seconds later, I realized I was the ship, and the aliens were right in front of me. Every time they hit me, I felt the pain of the impact, and saw a bar of health show depletion. I panicked and started to concentrate. After a few minutes, the aliens were destroyed, and I was back in my room.

 Everytime I played that alien game again, it wouldn't be the same as it was at that time. I was the ship, and I could have died. The instructions on my fathers letter were simple, I have to win 3000 games, it wouldn't be the same game, I had to find which game it was by playing it and seeing if I could warp inside it. I could actually die in the game too. These instructions were the only ones my father had know through experience, the rest he had not known. The restrictions on the other hand, were only 2 things, and they were things that my father was against. Do not tell your mother about this, and do not make this your life.

Tomatsu- ~that's inevitable, Dad~

 I would buy a bunch of games with my allowance, and from the money I would get from returning the previously played videogames. No reason to keep finished games. This box of games were almost all done, and Id have to make a trip to the store again soon. So far, none of the games I've played have been testable. I was about to give up today, when i picked up a cartridge at the end of the box that had no title. It looked like it had dents in it. Wow I should've gotten a discount. Well, might as well try it. I inserted the cartridge and turned my console on. It was just a blank screen. I flicked the console on and off. Nothing. The games probably broken. I reached to take out the cartridge, but suddenly I froze. I couldnt move. Everything was dimming. Until I was completely enveloped in darkness. I was now in the game.

I made my way out the door with a granola bar my mom left me, and took off on my bike. Kanagawa was probably the most boring school you will ever go to. It is old, but it goes under construction every year. I pretty much go through almost the same routine everyday.

Akio-"oiii tamotsuuuu! Good morning!" akio cheerfully greeted me. He grabbed my neck like he always does.

Kahori- "thank god you wear deodorant akio, tamotsu might die" says kahori"

Kahori-good morning guys" she said politely.

Tomatsu- "morning kahori" I replied

Akio-Akio's grip tightened "what's up With that, reply to her but not your best friend? You sexist bastarrrd"

Tomatsu- "you grabbed my neck'" "anyway let's get to class"

These two I've known since I was little. But we mostly talk at school. Anytime we get a vacation, my mom would take us to a relatives, and on weekends, I'd always be out.  As a result, these two don't have to bear my curse.I was very fortunate to have a seat right next to the window. School was never anything to complain about. Everything was fairly easy, although I'd disappoint myself whenever I see others with perfect grades, but I never motivated myself to do any better. Daichi was one of those guys, he had perfect grades, and a great attitude. I'm not the jealous type, I admired him. But I'd be lying if I said i didn't wish I was like him. Akio introduced me to daichi 2 years ago, during our 9th year. They went camping together, and ever since I've acknowledged daichi. You could say we're friends, compared to others, but I did know akio a lot better of course."brrrring!" ~finally lunch time~ I grabbed my lunch from under my desk, as soon as I did akio slammed his lunch box on my desk.

Akio- "geez, today's lesson is confusing!"

Tomatsu-"do you have to be so loud man?" I said to akio

Akio-"haha sorry"

 Daichi joined us after he bought his lunch. While they talked about the lesson, well, after daichi promised to lend akio his notes, kahori and her friends came.

Akio-"hey guys!""ay kahori! What do you for lunch today?" akio greedily asked"

Kahori-noo way akio, I'm hungry today, gotta prepare for softball!"

Akio- "awww"

Haruki- "here akio, you can have some of mine"

Akio- "thanks Haruki!"

Haruki was a friend whom I had known for a long time. Unlike kahori's brown hair, and masumi's black hair, she had long auburn hair, and bright hazelnut eyes too. The only reason I can talk to her now is because she became friends with kahori. No one knew that I admired her, cause I tend to keep to myself. Masumi was the class president. She was prideful, and confident in herself. She never liked me though. I always thought that she was just shy, but last year at akios birthday party, when we were alone, she yelled at me for being a dull idiot. I couldn't blame her, i did seem to show that persona. Even now she looks at me with nothing in her big black eyes. If anything, she'll look at me with hate. ~She probably would be a good match for daichi.~ I thought to myself.

Kahori-"well I gotta get going, softball practice starts soon. Later guys!"

 kahori left

"byeee" we all said

Everyone was in a conversation. Masumi was Discussing with daichi, akio was speaking with Haruki, I felt out of place. Before I knew it though, lunch time was over. After school I met up with the art club. To be honest, the only reason I ever go is because Haruki was there. She was so talented. She could cook, draw, and write amazing things.Our assignment today was to make a flip note, to exercise for a claymation that we're going to work on as group together. Haruki was the club president was Showing a lot of enthusiasm.I began my flip note. At first it was just a ball bouncing towards the end of the note, but then a person caught it. He threw it at the other wall and it bounced back toward his face. He ended up swallowing the ball. And started bounding around.

Haruki-"hahaha that's so cute" a familiar voice said over my shoulder

It startled me so much that I dropped the note.

Haruki- "I'm sorry, here" Haruki picked up the note and handed it to me.

Tomatsu-th-thanks" I said pathetically.

Haruki- "haha no problem. You're good at drawing tomatsu!"

Tomatsu-"n-noo you're much better"

Haruki- "haha thanks. Wanna see my flip note?"

Tomatsu- "yeah. O-okay"

 She picked up her flip book and was about to begin. It was pretty hard to not look at her face.Her flip not started with a seed. The seed burst and began to release a stem. It bent towards the sunlight, and became an enclosed flower. When the sun set, it released its petals, and opened up. I was speechless.

Haruki-"what do you think?"

She asked with those adorable eyes

Tomatsu-"wow" was all I could say.

Haruki-"hahaha you're so weird tomatsu"

Tomatsu-"haha yeah.."I left with my head down.

Daichi-"hey tomatsu, will you accompany me?" daichi asked

Our houses were closer than the rest of my friends. It was on the way so if we went home together, I never minded.

Tomatsu- "yeah sure"

Maumi-"hey daichi! Wait up!

Tomatsu - " oh no" I thought

Daichi-hey Masumi, wanna come with us?"

Masumi- She didn't look at my face when she replied "yeah let's go!"

I said the rest of my friends, but in truth, Masumi was my neighbor. Daichi and Masumi talked mostly the entire way, occasionally daichi Said a few things to me.

Daichi- "well, here's where we split, I'll see you guys tomorrow!" daichis house was farther then ours was.

Tomatsu-"later"

Masumi-"bye daichi"

We both walked and didn't says word for a while. I didn't care anyway. I was just on my way home. I was even trying to quicken my pace to get away from her, after all she couldn't stand me anyway. It didn't seem like she was paying attention anyway, but she was a pretty fast walker. So I decided to slow down while she went ahead. She was going to fast though, and not paying attention, she was about to walk off the sidewalk without thinking. I quickly ran and grabbed her back. Just as I did a car sped in front.

Tomatsu-"oi! What the hell are you doing!" I yelled.

she just stood there frozen for a Moment. Her eyes were wide, as if she was remembering something.Then she whirled back and slapped my hand off.

Masumi-"don't touch me!"

Tomatsu- The nerve of this girl."then watch where youre going!

Tomatsu- Do you WANT to die?"

She couldn't say anything, but just stood there for a second. Then she burst into tears and hugged me.

Masumi-"wh-huh?" "to-to-tomatsu!" she was bawling.

 And I had no idea what to do.I didn't hate this girl, and she was crying. I instinctively hugged her back and pet her head.

Tomatsu-"it's okay.."

For some reason, that moment was really long.Then she let go, and ram home. After I got my head together, I did likewise.

Tomatsu-"I'm back"...no response.Seems like mom and my little sister aren't back  yet.So it's obvious what I had to do.

I went to my room, took out a box of video games from my closet.A lot of these games were so nostalgic. I'd play them with my father all the time.My father fell into a coma when I was 5. The cause unknown but the docters said it might have been stress.but his time is limited, apparently he wont have much longer to live, and that frightened me to no end.

The next day a package came for me , inside was a  letter. It read: tomatsu, if you ever relieve this message, chances are I am dead or unable to come back to reality. Tomatsu, you possess a curse that you inherited from me. You will have this curse until you succeed 3000 times from its effects. Behind this letter are instructions and restrictions regarding this curse, copy them down and burn this letter. Your mother or sister cannot know about this. Some videogames you play will be 'testable' , where you will participate as its main character and challenge it. When you succeed, it will count as one of the 3000. You must hurry, and complete this task as fast as you can. I have failed to do so, but I believe in you. Goodbye Son.

 So I figured that unless I conquered thus curse, he'd never come back. I couldn't understand anything he said that day, but I figured it out the very next day. I was playing a game where I was in a ship and shooting aliens. A few seconds later, I realized I was the ship, and the aliens were right in front of me. Every time they hit me, I felt the pain of the impact, and saw a bar of health show depletion. I panicked and started to concentrate. After a few minutes, the aliens were destroyed, and I was back in my room.

 Everytime I played that alien game again, it wouldn't be the same as it was at that time. I was the ship, and I could have died. The instructions on my fathers letter were simple, I have to win 3000 games, it wouldn't be the same game, I had to find which game it was by playing it and seeing if I could warp inside it. I could actually die in the game too. These instructions were the only ones my father had know through experience, the rest he had not known. The restrictions on the other hand, were only 2 things, and they were things that my father was against. Do not tell your mother about this, and do not make this your life.

Tomatsu- ~that's inevitable, Dad~

 I would buy a bunch of games with my allowance, and from the money I would get from returning the previously played videogames. No reason to keep finished games. This box of games were almost all done, and Id have to make a trip to the store again soon. So far, none of the games I've played have been testable. I was about to give up today, when i picked up a cartridge at the end of the box that had no title. It looked like it had dents in it. Wow I should've gotten a discount. Well, might as well try it. I inserted the cartridge and turned my console on. It was just a blank screen. I flicked the console on and off. Nothing. The games probably broken. I reached to take out the cartridge, but suddenly I froze. I couldnt move. Everything was dimming. Until I was completely enveloped in darkness. I was now in the game.

Intro

Tomatsu - ~What is this, am I drowning?  Ah wait, it's dinner time. They'll be expecting me soon. Better finish this quick.~

 I  headed towards the surface
The clouds were black and filled with murderous lightning. It looked black beyond the horizon, with roaring waves threatening to swallow me up. I needed to find a boat quick. I frantically looked around.There it was, a few meters away directly behind where I was looking.There was a thick rope drooping on the side. I swam towards it, getting knocked by waves over and over again.

Tomatsu - "gahh!"

A huge wave struck me from behind, and made me crash into the boat.I helped myself up. It was a tiny thing, but I knew that there was no reason that it couldn't handle these waves. After all, It wasn't real There was a fishing rod hanging on the side, glowing and blinking.I grabbed it by instinct.Immediately after I did, the string started reeling.It took all my strength to keep it on the boat. I couldn't let it go, that would be a huge problem. I did'nt think I'd ever find it in This ocean I used the little knowledge I knew, and my instincts, to pull the rod and reel it in. It didn't take too long, before a swordfish jumped out of the water, the hook stuck in its mouth.The instant I saw that, I pulled as hard as I could.It was kind of funny, it flung to the boat, and landed beside me.At that moment, I heard a cha-Ching! Sound, and a bright light enveloped me, to release me once again.

Mom-"TAMOTSU, IF I DON'T SEE YOUR ASS  DOWN HERE IN 1 MINUTE, YOU WILL REGRET IT!"

-sigh- just in time then. I got up from my bed and made my way to the dinner table.

Tomatsu -"bleh what the heck"

 I said to myself, intentionally having my mother hear me.
She made curry again! Gosh you'd think that she would make something different, but she's only good at making curry. Anything else and you'd be asking for burns or extreme dryness.

"Shut up tamotsu" my sister,  Ayako said.

 She never holds back anything she has to say.Well whatever, "itadakimasu" I said dully.

Ayako-"what were you doing up there anyway oniisan? Took you long enough to come down here"

Tomatsu-"nothing"

Ayako-"yeah surree, you were probably doing something perverted."

Tomatsu- "shut up Ayako! We're Eating dinner"

Ayako-"ohh so you're not denying it huh, groooosss"

Tomatsu-"tch geez"

Mom-"what are you to talking about at the table?" my mother menacingly asks

Tomatsu&Ayako-"NOTHING!" we reply simultaneously.

After that we ate in silence

Tomatsu-~Ohh dammit I'm gonna be late!~Should I skip?... Nahh today's Monday.

I made my way out the door with a granola bar my mom left me, and took off on my bike. Kanagawa was probably the most boring school you will ever go to. It is old, but it goes under construction every year. I pretty much go through almost the same routine everyday.
