Introduction by Freakshow: Well, seeing as how the Gamershood Chronicles went belly up in my mind (sad, I know ), I was working on this about midway between typing that and school, pretty hard if you ask me . Anyway, back on topic, this is the story about Chris Dregan, your typical 15 year old in New Jersey. However, his mind is divided into so many topics, ranging from mainly video games to getting a girlfriend. What he doesn't know is that a new area is about to be built withing the housing of his mind. As he dives deeper into the world of anime and manga, he finds himself answers to all his problems. Over time, he realizes that he has grown distant from the things he once did, such as his old friends and his old pasttime, being video games. Does he maintain his habits while dealing with just Another Obsession?
Now, without futher ado, I present the (would-be) novel of Another Obsession
The beginning of fall rolls on, the sky is clear, no clouds, and the sun shines brightly. Trees sway gently in a flavorful breeze, perfect kite weather one might say. Suburban homes line the sidewalk on both sides as a group of kids walk down the road. Their destination not important but not clear. The three look at each other talking back and forth, conversing quietly but with force.
“Now, cmon, you can’t be serious. . .” one remarks.
“I’m serious, Grandale is coming out this June and I” with a strong voice “have the first copy coming to my house, a DAY before its release.” Another said proudly.
“Frank, everyone knows Microsoft never makes private reservations to individuals, especially your age” one said with a blunt tone.
“Pfft, whatever, I’m telling you guys, I called them personally and made a reservation with them.” Frank said, trying to convince the two.
“Alright then”, Greg said “How much’d the reservation cost then? 70, 80 bucks?” Greg knew he was lying, but he was unsure, he’s only heard rumors about people getting pre-released copies of games, all by calling in a number to reserve it.
“Chris, you believe me right?” Frank said, desperately trying to get someone to be on his side.
But, Chris didn’t say anything, he just shrugged, his mind was too busy thinking of other matters; school, home life, grades, meeting new friends, and trying to land a girlfriend. He looked up at Frank and Greg but just shrugged.
“Hah! I knew you are lying! You just want Chris on your side because he’ll go with anything!” Greg exclaimed with a proud face and ego.
“Hey, that’s not true. I never said anything, I just don’t choose. . sides. . .” as Chris’ voice just trailed off. He merely looked up to the sky. He had dreams but was unsure of himself. He was being pulled in different
directions for a summer career, his resume needed work and he’s already been fired from two jobs. Most of his money went to games, only some of it, saved from the clutches of EB Games by his parents, made it to his account.
