Late lastnight i was looking up creepy pastas (as i do at 2am) and found an assassins creed one. its pretty creepy so i thought i'd share it with you lovely people

You can read it here: http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/Assassin's_Creed
[WARNING CREEPY]
Or if your scared to go on the site you can read it below:

It was January 1, 2011. It was my best friend Jenna's birthday. Since I wasn't able to go to her birthday party, I decided to go over to her house with a chocolate cake and her present - a brand new copy of Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood. Assassin's Creed had been her favourite video game series, though I had never played and only heard of it once from my friend Phillip, I was excited to watch her play. I remember when Phillip first showed me Assassin's Creed 2 via Skype video call, he was controlling Ezio and making him go up a very tall building. Ezio got to the top, and Phillip asked "Alright, you ready for this?" I said alright, not knowing what he was gonna do. Suddenly Ezio thrusted himself off of the building, diving towards the ground. Being the kind of gamer who HATES to die, I yelled "Why the hell'd you do that?!" at him. I got a chuckle in response as Ezio very gracefully landed in a pile of hay unharmed. I was amazed. That was the last I had seen of the game, and that was July 2010.

So, let me go back to Jenna's house. I drove on over, knocked on the door, everything was fine. Her mom opened the door and told me Jenna was downstairs in the basement like usual. I kicked off my shoes by the door, closed the door, and went down the stairs to the basement like I always did. Jenna's basement was where we always hung out. I went down the stairs and the lights were off. I figured she was playing a video game so I decided to leave them off. The floor was kinda slick like always, and it always had a liquidy look to it like it had either been recently waxed or someone had just spilled water on it. But whenever I walked on the floor it was never wet. I walked in and turned to the left, where Jenna was. She was sitting on the brown couch on the left side of the room towards the big TV across from it. There was another couch on the right side of the same wall, and there was a bed next to the TV across from the other couch. Jenna, her sister Brooke, and I would always play video games on the brown couch until one of us fell asleep at 6am and Brooke went to go sleep on either the other couch or up in her room, and Jenna would sleep on the bed until Jenna's mom would come down and yell at us to get up at 9am even though she knew we had been up all night.

Jenna turned her head and smiled as I yelled "HAPPY BIRTHDAY!" and placed the cake on the side table by the couch. It was late, about 9pm, and she was playing Halo 2 or something like that. I handed her the box which contained the game, she smiled, gave me a hug, thanked me, and popped the game into the Xbox 360. We played all night and got like a third of the way into it, and crashed about 6am. We were very happily woken up by Jenna's mom screaming at us because we didn't turn the game off when we fell asleep. I was half asleep so I didn't really know what was going on, but Jenna seemed a bit upset. We got up, ate some cake, and proceeded with our gaming. About an hour later we went upstairs and ate some breakfast, and Jenna's mom told me that they had to go somewhere at 2, so I had to leave by then. I was fine, it was 10:30. We had 3 and a half hours left to play. We went downstairs and played some more and eventually got stuck. We spent like an hour and 40 minutes in one part and then realized it was 10 minutes to 2, so I hugged Jenna goodbye, went upstairs, grabbed my shoes, and drove home. From that day on, I was hooked on Assassin's Creed. (CHEESY PARAGRAPH ENDING YAY.)

I didn't have an Xbox 360 due to me going into a massive rage and smashing mine at one point, but I got another one in early April. This was late January. What I did have was my grandfather's (I live with my grandparents) PS3. I drove on over to Blockbuster and picked up the last copy of Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood. I then played for a while but completely forgot about it. The Blockbuster I got it from was closing, so I had to return it three days after I got it. I was kinda bummed, but it wasn't a big deal. I just started replaying one of my old Zelda games. Pretty soon, I had forgotten all about Assassin's Creed.

Early April rolled around, and my mom finally gave in to my constant whining, and gave me the Xbox 360 Elite with 250 gigabytes memory she had gotten from her boyfriend's roommate. I was quite pleased. I didn't have much money on me, but I went on over to the Gamestop near me to check out the games. I looked around, and I didn't really see anything that looked cool. There were a couple games I kinda wanted, but they weren't in stock at that store and I was too lazy to drive 22 miles to another Gamestop to get them. I was on my way out when I noticed they had a bin with games on clearance by the door. I thought to myself '**** it, why not?' and looked around. There wasn't much. Just some Deal or no Deal for Wii, Glee Karaoke, and some other games I didn't care about. I looked around and at the very bottom, there was a copy of Assassin's Creed. It was on sale for about 18 dollars. (And living in Oregon, we have no sales tax. HA.) I shrugged, went up to the cashier, and asked how important playing the first game in the series was. I knew it wasn't from the viewpoint of Ezio, but from Altair. The cashier explained what I needed to know, sold me the game, and I went on my way. I drove home, turned on the 360 for the first time. I didn't have the internet cord so I couldn't download any updates, thus I couldn't make myself an avatar thing which I thought was weird. But, I made myself a profile to join the ones already on there - ***got, Poopyundies, PoopyundiesJR, and 69. The previous owner of the Xbox must have either been an idiot, a 12-year old, or drunk. Maybe all three. None of the profiles had any points (I don't know what to call them but you get them from achievements, or you buy them.) and none had any avatars. My profile was named Rena (I cosplay Rena Ryuugu from the anime Higurashi no Naku Koro ni so Rena is a common nickname for me). I signed in, and an avatar popped up. Which was weird, because I was never given the option to make one. The avatar was all black, bald, and looked male. No face, no clothes, nothing. I shrugged it off and figured since I made my profile after all the other ones were made, I was given the blank excuse for an avatar.

I went to the settings editor part of the console, and noticed the date and time were both off. The date was 9/22/2005 - which struck me as a bit odd because I was pretty sure the Elite wasn't out in 2005. The time was 9:46am, too. I changed them so they were accurate - 4/12/2011 at 8:19pm. I was done exploring the console (there wasn't much to explore seeing as I didn't have the internet cord) so I put the game in and began to play. Everything was cool, I really loved the game. Nothing had gone wrong. I finished it in like a month and a half (I don't really play video games for more than a few hours straight and I got frustrated and stopped playing for a while, got bored and stopped playing for a while, and went on vacation.) and to be honest I was really angry at the last fight. I thought it was gonna be cool and intense but no. I got a fist fight with an old fat guy - and he didn't even fight back. I beat him in about 4 minutes, more or less.

I'm not in school, and haven't been since April 4 due to a complicated situation (before you say anything, no I didn't drop out. Things happened and my mom pulled me out for the rest of the school year.) so I get bored REALLY easily and use video games to pass the time. I was quite anxious to get Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, but I had my mind set on another game I was going to get three days after I finished the second installment in the Assassin's Creed series. My mom asked me on Facebook if I wanted to borrow my uncle's copy of Brotherhood, and I said not right now. After trying to convince me to borrow it, she said alright and she stopped bothering me. About twenty minutes later my grandma came in and handed the copy of Brotherhood to me. I was kinda like "uh, I told mom I didn't wanna borrow it." and looked at her weird. She just told me that my mom told her that I did want it. I rolled my eyed and took the game, sending her off. I figured if I had it in my possession, I may as well play it.

So I put in the game and began to play. Honestly, it kinda sucked. I was expecting a lot more. I wasn't too far into the game (about...halfway?) when I was just really bored with it and began to go around getting all the recruits I could to join my assassin guild, and to get all possible viewpoints. I was completely ignoring the next objective of the game. (For those of you curious, I'm pretty sure I had just finished sequence 5 and the first memory of sequence 6.) That's when things got weird. I went on top of a Borgia tower to get the viewpoint before I climbed up it again to burn it. I went on the little perch where you hit Y and it went duhhhhhh-nuhhhhh-nuhhhhhhhhhh (awesome impression, no?) and you heard CAAAAWWWWWW as the camera zoomed out and panned around the city...then you swan dived into the hay or river or whatever was under you. So I hit Y, synchronized, and right when I was about to jump down the screen flashed white and it cut to the little cutscene thing that showed the tower on fire and beginning to crumble as Ezio threw a lit torch onto the ground and just walked off like nothing happened and everyone around him is like WHAT THE **** JUST HAPPENED OH GOD OH GOD.

I didn't really think anything of it. I thought I may have pressed B on accident which caused it to ignite the tower. So anyway, I kept walking. I checked on my map to see where the nearest Borgia tower was, and it wasn't too close. I decided to give it a shot and go destroy it. I walked a little and remembered in this game I could steal someone's horse and ride off with it. I waited for a while for someone to ride past until someone finally did. I pressed B to hijack the horse, and then I realized I had just attempted to steal it from a guard. I uttered a curse to myself and ran away at full speed. I occasionally looked back to see if I was being chased, which I wasn't. But the red arrow at the bottom of the screen indicated that the guard was still after me and aiming to kill. I ran for a bit, and eventually ended up at the Colosseum. I figured the guard wasn't chasing me. I walked over to the tunnel thing you could go into and travel somewhere else in Rome really fast with. I approached it, pressed Y like usual, but it didn't take me to the screen that let me choose where to go. It was the pop-up that you saw when the nearby Borgia tower owned everything. But this time it didn't say "This is owned by the nearby Borgia tower." or whatever. It said "This tunnel has been purchased in loving memory of everyone you have killed." I stared at the screen in confusion. I had never EVER seen that happen before. Without pressing anything, the pop-up disappeared and the guard I had pulled off the horse was behind me, and he looked PISSED. Like, more detail had been put into his face than I had ever seen in a video game. I screamed, hit the button in the middle of the controller to pause it, and approached the console itself. I hit the power button and turned it off. I went into the kitchen to get something to drink, sat down at the table, and sighed.

I went back to the living room after like an hour and turned the Xbox on again. I took a deep breath and went to go sign into my profile. Everything was the same, I had the same empty shell of a character, and the same number of points I had gotten from completing things in the same. I clicked on my profile to sign in, and a thing popped up that said "Would you like to install the new update?" and before I had a chance to select if I wanted to or not, it just clicked yes on its own. I spent like 20 minutes editing my avatar to make it how I wanted it, then went back to the main menu thing. I noticed something. It was signed in as the first profile - "***got". ***got now had an avatar, and it looked sad. It had tattered jeans and a t-shirt on, slicked back blond hair, and a very sad expression. It was very tall, and VERY skinny. It had wrinkles and you could kinda see its cheek bones. I logged out of ***got and went through the profiles. There was one more. It was named "Playagain" and it had the same pants as ***got. Same hair, same expression. Well, not quite the same expression. This one looked more...pained, I guess. It was wearing no shirt and it looked like you could see its ribs. It was also very skinny and frail, and sometimes it would kind of cringe. The Poopyundies and PoopyundiesJR profiles didn't have an avatar, and 69 had a blank one like I had originally started out with. I signed back into Rena and went back to the Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood screen. I got to the list of files, which was normal. Just Rena on top followed by 'Empty' twice. I clicked on Rena and it went back to the tunnel. The guard wasn't there anymore, but the red arrow thing was still at the bottom of the screen. I walked around the outside of the Colosseum and decided the guard wasn't there anymore. I started to walk to the Borgia tower I was originally going for. I heard this painful screech for a few seconds and I very faintly head the sound of a horse galloping for a couple seconds after that before the guard from before rode up to Ezio and slashed his head off. I stared at the screen, mortified.

Normally when you die in Assassin's Creed, there are white lines everywhere (that's a ****ty way to describe it. If you wanna see for yourself just look it up on YouTube or something.) and it says "DESYNCHRONIZED". Then it loads for a few seconds and brings you back to the last point you saved at. But this time the screen just went all static and said in broken text "OVER". Then it kicked me out to the Xbox main menu again. I went to check if I was signed in as Rena, which (not surprisingly) I wasn't. I was greeted by yet another new profile. This new profile was named "Secondchance" and it too had the avatar I was given when I started out. Blank. I signed out of that one and back into Rena, starting Brotherhood back up again. I selected the save file named Rena again and it just went to a bird's eye view shot of Ezio on the ground, all sprawled out, headless and bleeding. People were running around in terror. I pressed every button possible in a panic, to no avail. There was no music, but there was the delightful sound of screams of terror and feet stomping around. After about 40 seconds of me blankly staring at the screen, there was a cutscene of Ezio's sister (At least, I'm pretty sure it's his sister? It's that Claudia chick or whatever.) on her knees by Ezio's head, sobbing. His mother took Claudia into her arms and held her for a few moments. I felt pretty bad for Ezio's mom. I mean, her husband and all of her sons were dead. Pretty soon after that, a few *****s (If you want me to put it nicely, courtesans) picked up the head while making revolted faces and uttering "ew..." every once in a while. Ezio's jaw was wide open, and his eyed were closed. I was kinda grossed out, honestly.

I saw Leonardo da Vinci very sadly walk up to the group with a pained expression. He looked upset. Like all of his hope was lost. He had a big box in his hands which was very beautifully decorated. It was a deep blue with golden jewels around in some kind of design. It looked very skillfully done with lots of time and dedication. He opened it. The inside had red velvet trim, and kinda looked like the inside of a box for an engagement ring or something. The *****s put the head inside the box and Leonardo thanked them. They had those disgusted expressions as they scrambled to wipe their hands on their rather revealing dresses. Leonardo closed the lid on the box and he went on his way. The crying Claudia and her mother also left Ezio's sprawled out body and went away too. I was stuck staring at the lifeless body for a couple minutes before two guards went to drag it away. They walked for a bit with the body before throwing it into a river. The screen went into that static frenzy again and said "RESTART?". It began counting down from 60. At about 25 I finally found the right button to push - the 'select' button. I pushed it, and it brought me back to where Ezio took the guard off of the horse.

Ezio pulled the guard off the horse and instead of running, I decided to fight. I mean, it couldn't be too hard. He didn't have much armor on. I swung at him with my sword a few times only to have him block my attacks. I hit the B button to grab him, but he just ducked and stepped back. I hit the A button to kick him in the crotch, but he just jumped over my foot. "You're kidding me..." I groaned to myself. I hit LB and called the 10 members of my assassin guild to assist me in killing the guard. They all came one by one, and all looked horrified and dropped to their death one by one. I stared at the screen shocked for a few seconds before the guard hit me with his sword again, taking three health squares from me. I ran around aimlessly for about 30 seconds before I came across a group of *****s. I quickly hit Y to hire them and targeted the guard, sending them after him. They got kind of close before making that horrified face and dropping dead. "What the hell...?" I muttered, thinking out loud. I ran around some more before the guard started laughing mechanically and reaching for a box on the ground. The box looked exactly like the one Ezio's head was placed in before but was longer. He reached in and grabbed the Staff of Eden that I had last seen at the end of Assassin's Creed 2. I uttered "...What...?" as he grinned, laughing louder than before. He whacked Ezio over the back of the head, knocking him forward. He writhed in pain as I tried to get him off the ground to no avail. The guard kept whacking Ezio in the face with the staff, causing his face to bleed horribly. The guard took the end of the staff and thrust it into Ezio's right eye socket, Ezio screaming in pain and jerking his pelvis forward.

The guard kept smacking Ezio's forehead with the bloodied staff. It started to split open. Ezio just shrieked in pain and called for help. Nobody came. Ezio became unconscious and the guard kept whacking at him. He began to whack at Ezio's throat until it was smashed into the ground. Blood was everywhere. The guard dropped to his knees and started laughing mechanically again. That piercing laughter sent shivers down my spine as the guard began to search Ezio's clothing. He grabbed the gun-thing that was built into Ezio's gauntlet and fastened it around his wrist. He explored it for a couple seconds before grinning widely and pressing it to his forehead. He pulled the hidden trigger and shot himself. The Staff of Eden he held was dropped onto Ezio's corpse as he dropped to his death with the assassin.

I stared as the screen went white and said "OVER." in black text. I turned the console off and back on again. All login profiles were gone except for Rena and a new one named "Check". Check had no hair, dots for eyes, a straight mouth, and a small nose. He had a tuxedo on, and no shoes. I signed into Rena and started Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood up again.

It was really nothing. It was just a view of the decaying corpses of Ezio and the guard. I shook my head, closed my eyes, and got up to turn off the console. I hit the power button, but it didn't turn off. It just kept showing their dead bodies laying on the ground. I tried turning off the TV but it didn't work. I kept shaking my head, and went into my room to sleep.

The next day I woke up, had breakfast (which nowadays consists of pasta and ice cream), and looked at the TV. It was still on from last night. I realized I hadn't really looked at what time it was. I normally get up at like, 3 to 5 in the afternoon. I looked at the clock. It was about 7am. I hadn't gotten up that early since March. Especially not on my own. I wasn't quite sure what time I went to bed, but I imagined it was pretty early like midnight or something. It was late enough for my grandparents to be asleep but early enough to get up at /seven/. The screen was the same as I left it, the same view as the night before. I felt uneasy, my stomach hurt.

I sat there for a bit, trying to think of a way to get out of it. After like 20 minutes of sitting on the couch, idly staring at the TV across from me, deep in thought, it let out a horrible screeching sound and the screen went white. This went on for about 40 seconds until it kicked me back to the Brotherhood menu where I would select if I wanted multiplayer or story mode or whatever. I hit story mode and clicked Rena. Luckily, neither Ezio nor the guard were dead, and lucky for me, Ezio had yet to pull the guard off the horse. I sighed in relief as I ran the opposite direction at full speed. I went to the nearest tunnel to travel to the *****-house (whatever you wanna call it.), but again it said "This tunnel has been purchased in loving memory of everyone you have killed.". I gave the TV an odd look as I made Ezio turn around and begin to walk away.

Alright, I'd just like to explain that I'm not a TOTAL ***** for being afraid of the dark, I have my reasoning. I'd never been afraid of the dark until a few weeks ago. Let's just say I have a love for reading and a vivid imagination. I'm not going any further than that. I've always been really bad at video games because I hate when things pop up at me, and that's one of the reasons why I love Assassin's Creed - because you can see how many guards are around and how many are chasing you. You never have to wonder. It's all very straightforward. Because of that, I never got past the first area of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (The only Elder Scrolls game I had ever played), and I can't play and Zelda games alone. So I don't do the Shrines of Romulus or whatever in Assassin's Creed unless I have to. They're creepy. ANYWAY.

I walked around for a while and decided to get that viewpoint at the Borgia tower I was after before. I also decided I would walk the trip. I made my way over, killed who I needed to kill, made my way up the tower and hit Y to synchronize. But instead of letting me back up to set the tower on fire, Ezio thrust himself off of the perch and into the haystack. Instead of getting out or waiting or anything, Ezio crawled deeper inside of the hay and ended up in the first Shrine of Romulus. I cursed at the TV. I hated this. I sincerely hated this. It was darker than the first /three times/ I had been here (Remember, I watched Jenna play once, started to play on the PS3 once, and then I went through it on this game), I certainly knew that. I walked and jumped through, did what I should, and ended up in the last room. The big room. The annoying one with the pillars and you had to scale the walls to get around to the treasure room. I got there and all of the lights went out. I squealed. The torches on the walls flickered and lit again, and the ground was littered with dead bodies. The bodies of the men and women I had killed, guard, citizen (sometimes I'd killed them when trying to kill a guard. Oops.), beggar (I...have a bad temper), or the royalty (I guess they were royalty? I don't know...) I had been sent out to kill. They were all on the floors, piled on top of each other, bloody and rotting.

The bodies were decaying and gross. I couldn't walk without stepping on one. I tried looting them and picking them up but it didn't work. I noticed the throne that was normally there had been replaced with another one. This new one was nicer, newer, and looked more expensive. Above it was a plaque. Ezio ran across the bodies, making disgusting squishing and cracking sounds when he did. He made his way to the plaque, and I hit Y to examine it. It read "In loving memory in everyone you have killed...". I stared as the screen faded black and said in red "Game over. Thank you for playing.". I hit the A button and it booted me back to the main Xbox menu. It wasn't signed into any profiles. Everything was normal - my profile named Rena had an avatar, and she was joined by the Poopyundies profiles, 69, and ***got - none of whom had avatars or points like before. I went back to the Brotherhood menu and hit A repeatedly so it went to the story mode menu where you selected one of three save files to begin playing. My save file was gone - and all three read 'Empty' like it had when I first borrowed the game. I sighed, got up, and turned the console off. I went back to sleep for a couple hours and got up at about 10:30. I took a shower, put the game in its case, and drove the 3/4ths of a mile to my uncle's apartment to return the game to him. He asked how the game was, I shrugged, and went on my way. The next day I drove the 22 miles to pick up the game I was going to play three days after I beat Assassin's Creed 2. I started playing, was quite happy with the game, and got frustrated and bored. So, knowing me, I got on Facebook and didn't get off my computer for quite a while after.

And that brings us up to right now. I googled the ending to Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, so I'm all caught up for when the next game comes out in November (It's November, right?). I'm now playing Resonance of Fate and I'm quite happy with it so far, and I don't intend on finishing Brotherhood on my own. Jenna keeps bothering me to go over to her house to play it with her because she likes playing with me more, but I keep insisting she finish alone. So it's 5am, I've been typing the story for a while now... My back hurts, I should probably eat soon, and I should sleep after I eat. Hey look, Lauren's on Skype. Maybe I'll talk to her. Typing all of this up reminded me about how horrible this experience was. I really just wanna forget all of it now. Is that really so much to ask?

1000$ From me If someone reads ALL of this..

Also, from the bits I read.. it doesn't seem creepy.. Creepy ? Wha- ?

i read it. it gets creepier towards the end. I also found this its kind of like a sequel to the story it wasnt that good though it gets kinda out of hand

Why did I reserve the game? I told myself I wouldn't. I told myself I was done with that god****ed series. What compelled me to walk into Gamestop, wait in the obnoxiously long line of kids, and tell the cashier that I wanted to reserve Assassin's Creed: Revelations? Given my past experiences with Brotherhood, I didn't even wanna touch anything related to that series again.



That was July. I reserved it 4 months prior to its release and got a sweet poster when I reserved it. I love posters and that was their last poster, so it wasn't something I could refuse. I took the poster home and hung it up on my wall, next to my bed. I knew I shouldn't have hung it up, seeing as Brotherhood scared the piss out of me just two months before, and Ezio would be staring right at me when I slept. I didn't have any other space for the poster though, unless I wanted to strip the walls of all posters and completely re-arrange them, which I didn't have the patience or time for. So I just hung it up by my bed, and figured if it freaked me out I could take it down.


Luckily, I slept fine. A couple times I thought I saw Ezio without his hood, but when I turned to look at it is was still normal and his hood was still up. Plus, it was a poster of a drawing. It's not like he could've removed the hood. That's ridiculous.


Now I'm not gonna say something like "when I was asleep Ezio came out of the poster and slaughtered my cat!!!!!!" for two reasons.

1. I don't have a cat.

and 2. That's ****ing stupid. Drawings of fictional characters can't come to life and out of the poster, and you should know that!


So that's enough on the poster. My birthday is 22 August, and my best friend who lives three hours away came up to my house to visit for the weekend. We had a nice time, and long (and embarrassing) story short, we knocked my xBox 360 off my TV by accident and broke it. Nice going.


November 14 rolled around, and still no 360 was in my possession. ****. I figured I'd head over to the midnight release of the game anyway, seeing as they're pretty fun, I had some time to kill, and the mall I reserved the game at is only like 5 minutes from my house.


I drove over at 11:50 and walked to the mall's main entrance. It was locked. Great. The other entrance was on the complete other side of the mall, and it was cold. Really cold. November in Oregon is about 12 degrees at night and I really didn't wanna put up with walking around a cold mall at midnight just to get a game I couldn't even play and would probably bring back ****ty memories.


But if I went home empty-handed, that would look a bit suspicious. So I decided to make the trek to the other side, though not enthusiastically. I remember repeatedly thinking "god **** I should've worn a jacket" as I walked around the parking lot and dodged a few cars. If it was any other day, I wouldn't have questioned the absurd amount of cars at midnight at a closed mall, but Assassin's Creed is a pretty popular series, so I expected to see quite a lot of people given the popularity of the game and the amount of cars I saw in the parking lot.


About halfway to the other entrance, I noticed another entrance. It was conveniently right in front of the Gamestop. I was really confused though, seeing as I'm at this mall often and there were only two entrances. I bought some makeup at that mall on the afternoon of the 14th, less than 12 hours before I went to pick up the game. There was no construction, no door, it was just a blank wall with a vending machine against it. I shrugged and entered the door, which was luckily unlocked. The mall was completely empty and dark, save for a couple lights in the corridors and the lights in Gamestop. There was a man standing outside Gamestop, so I decided to ask him what was up with the lack of people, seeing as it was 2 minutes to midnight.


It was silent, dark, creepy, and I knew I should've just headed home. But at this point I was genuinely curious. I made my way to the man, asking him where all the people were. I peeked inside the store, seeing that there was nobody in there. Not even someone manning the cash register. It was empty. The man didn't acknowledge my question and told me to head into the back and he'd get me my game. It was a bit strange, seeing as I didn't even mention my game, but I nodded and headed into the store, looking at the games on the shelves. I noticed there were a lot more games than there were earlier in the day when I stopped in and asked if there would be a midnight release. Shelves were overflowing, there were games on the floor, and the entire place just looked messy and unorganized. Nothing besides that was off, though. No unlabled games, nothing like that. It was normal.


I looked at the games for another 30 seconds or so before looking to the man, who said he'd get me my game. He hadn't moved from his spot. I uttered "um... sir?" and raised an eyebrow at him before he quickly turned around and pointed at a door by the DS games in the back. "This is a midnight release," he snapped, "I'll get your game when the clock hits twelve."


Interesting, but okay. He turned back around and I looked at the clock on the wall, which said it was about 30 seconds to midnight. I thought his statement was obsurd, seeing as by the time he'd grab the game, it would be midnight. But I just decided to head into the back room like he instructed.


It was your standard room full of games, nothing special. Extremely cluttered, but it was seemingly organized by console and the games were shelved alphabetically. There were two people in the very back corner, a man and a woman, who looked like they were hitting each other with game cases and scratching each other with broken disks. They were extremely quiet and I had no idea they were there from when I was outside the room, and it took me a second to see them when I entered. I rushed over to them, breaking up their fight and confiscating the 'weaponry' from them. They growled for a second before quickly shutting up, taking back their 'weapons' of choice and tossing them to the side. I looked behind me, and the Gamestop employee had entered the room.


He shut the door behind him and locked it, silently making his way over to the shelf titled 'new games' as the people next to me watched him intently and seemingly forgot about everything else that was happening. He grabbed three copies of Revelations, handed them each to us, then left the room without even asking for us to pay for the games. I looked at the man and woman, who seemed like they were ready to start attacking each other again, and I pulled a couple necklaces from my purse. I tightly tied their wrists together behind their backs and took their games from them, promising to give them back when they agreed not to fight anymore. They sighed and agreed, and I led them to the main room of the store. The employee was locking up the store doors.


I set the games next to the cash register and asked the employee what he was doing. Until he finished locking the doors, he remained silent. I'm a short girl, and I'm not very strong, but I decided to confront him. I walked up to him and grabbed his arm, only to let go of it immediately afterwards when he grabbed my wrist with his other hand. He turned and glared at me, squeezing my wrist as I tried to wriggle it out of his grasp. He continued to glare at me for another minute or two, cutting off the circulation in my wrist. I attempted to kick and punch him, but he deflected each attack. I yelled for help, but the rest of the mall was empty. I turned to ask the man and woman for help, but they'd started fighting again. Looks like I didn't tie them up as tight as I should have.


They were using their copies of Revelations to hit each other over the head repeatedly, and the woman kicked the man in the crotch, and he immediately fell over. She took the opportunity to stomp on his face, grabbing a bunch of games from off one of the overflowing shelves and throwing them forcefully onto his stomach. He groaned, writhing around and trying to deflect the games she continued to throw at him, to no avail. She kicked him in the head repeatedly until her white shoes were coated in blood.


After that I stopped watching. I looked back to the employee, who unlocked and opened the doors and forcefully threw me out, causing me to stumble and nearly fall. I balanced myself and looked at him in utter shock as he went back to the cash register and threw my game at me. The game hit me in the stomach, though it didn't hurt that much. Maybe it did, but I was too focused on what was happening around me. He kicked the woman so hard she fell on top of the man, and at that point I left. I exited the mall through the only unlocked entrance, and quickly made my way back to the car and drove home.


I parked, entered the house, threw the game in the trash, and went to my room to think about what I had just witnessed. I eventually fell asleep.

And that was that.


December 12. Not quite sure of the exact time, pretty sure it was morning. My computer crashed exactly 67 times that day. I didn't even know it was possible. Took it in to get it checked for viruses. None.


March 3, 2012. Yesterday. Over the past few months my computer had crashed more times than I could even imagine. I got as much as I could fixed for free since it was still under warrantee until mid-February. Bluescreens are frequent and not at all uncommon. I don't have the money for a new computer, seeing as all of my money goes towards traveling to anime conventions.


I got a new 360 to play games on, since the frequency of my laptop crashing was ridiculous. I had my Mac desktop, but it only ran a couple games. I set up the 360 and turned it on. The start-up animation was normal except for the fact that the background was a bright green that hurt my eyes. I turned it off and restarted it, but it just did the same thing. This time I let it go to the menu, which was tinted green as well, though this green was lighter and easier to look at. I restarted it one more time and it was fine, so I went through my case of games. Nothing really caught my eye so I decided to go to Gamestop and pick up a new game. Lucky for me, I hadn't seen the employee that was working there during the midnight release of Revelations since that night. Though strangely, when I asked about him, the manager told me he'd never seen him before in his life.


I was about to get up and leave when I noticed a game I didn't recognize in the pile. It was Revelations. I cringed. I remembered throwing it out, I even watched the garbage man pick up the trash to make sure it was gone. I figured someone took it out of the trash. Dammit.


I picked up the game and slowly inserted it into the console, backing up to the couch and sitting down to play. Nothing unusual happened until near the part of the game when Ezio was in Derinkuyu. After you use the gunpowder to start the explosion and you have to escape while it's engulfed in flames, smoke, and more explosions. That was when weird things started to happen.


First it was just the templars chasing after me. I could deal with them easily. But soon, the citizens, some being caught on fire, started chasing and attacking Ezio as well. Each time, they all took Ezio outside and stabbed him repeatedly, throwing him into the ocean. I tried redoing it multiple times, meeting the same fate each time. I didn't think it was normal, so I decided to check out some walkthroughs online. At this point it was pretty dark since it was about 10pm, and there were only four lights on. The TV, the lamp next to the desktop, the desktop, and a dim lamp behind the desktop. I got on and searched through a few walkthroughs before seeing something in the reflection of the computer. It looked like Ezio's face.


I jumped and turned around. Nothing was there. It was the reflection from the lamp.


Dammit.


I sighed, turned around, and continued my search. Nobody else had experienced this problem, so I decided to call it quits for the night. I spent a couple hours browsing tumblr and Facebook before I started hearing the occasional thumping noise. I ignored it for a while before it really started to bother me. I looked around and didn't see anything, and assumed it was the game. I muted the TV and waited for a few minutes, but it continued. I looked up and looked into the kitchen. It was the kitchen sink dripping. I groaned and got up to fix it, but when I stood up I saw something in the window. It looked like the outline of a body from the shoulders-up. I watched it for a few seconds and oh my god it moved oh my god I was totally 1000% done with everything I just wanted to sleep. I made my way into my bedroom, turned on the light, and looked at my walls. The Revelations poster I received in July when I reserved the game was gone.


It didn't matter. I wanted to sleep. I was gonna take the poster down anyway. I was done. 1000% done. I didn't want anything to do with that stupid game anymore. I remembered that I didn't turn the game off but there was no way in hell I was going back out there.


So I went to sleep, and that was that. I refused to deal with it anymore. I knew I shouldn't have gotten that stupid game.


And then I woke up. It was morning. The sun was shining, the birds were singing, everything was fine. My poster was still gone, but nothing else was missing. I left the room and went back into the living room. The game was still on from last night. So of course, being the stupid little **** that I am, I turned it on one more time. My intentions were to finish that part and figure out what the hell was going on. I mean, it was just a game. Just a game.


This time I thought I'd made it. I was nearly at the boat, but suddenly, someone pulled Ezio back before he could step on. He took a Masyaf key from his pocket and bashed Ezio over the head with it repeatedly. He kicked Ezio in the crotch, and Ezio fell over. That's when I realized that that seemed familiar. And I remembered that was exactly the same thing I witnessed that woman doing to that man in Gamestop four months earlier. At this point I couldn't play, no matter what I pressed, nothing happened. I just sat there, mouth hanging open, as the unfamiliar man did all the same things to Ezio as the woman did to the man in Gamestop.


Ezio appeared to be dead. The man was hunched over him, searching him for Masyaf keys. But then suddenly, a man came up to the other and pushed him on top of Ezio. I looked closely at the man's face and realized he looked nearly exactly the same as the Gamestop "employee", of course without the Gamestop uniform. The man shot both Ezio and the man who seemed to have killed Ezio multiple times before picking them both up and throwing them into the sea.


Right as their bodies hit the water, the screen cut to Desmond getting tossed back onto Animus Island. Desmond looked around slowly, confused and upset, as the screen faded to black.


It stayed black for a few seconds before some white text showed up, simply stating "do not go where you do not belong". The text stayed up for about a minute before the 360 turned off. I just sat there, mortified, before getting up and hitting the power button on the console again, trying to turn it back on. It didn't turn back on. Great.


Whatever. I didn't wanna play that god ****ed game anymore anyway.

So is this just a fan made fiction story or what? Too long to read. And apparently not creepy.

Who would even make a story out of Assassin's Creed? Unless you focus on the real-world connections and Abstergo, there's no potential for a creepy story.

Now, if you want a CREEPY creepypasta, look up Morrowind's "Watch the Skies"...
