You guys are not going to BELIEVE what happened to me.
So, here I am, pacing around my room, worrying myself sick about Jean, when someone knocks on the door. I figure it's just someone selling something, so I open the door just enough to see who it is. I think I would have preferred it if it WAS someone selling something, but nope. It was freaking MINECRAFT CREEPER.
I am normally not a violent person, but I wanted to punch him in the face. Hard.
Then he makes it worse by forcing his way into my room (where's the RA when you need her?!). First thing to come to my mind is Daniel; he's hunched in the corner so no one standing in the door could see him. But Creeper was in the room. All he had to do was turn around and bang. We're caught.
But here's the thing. First thing Creeper did was scan the entire room. His gaze passed right over Daniel. Then the first thing to come out of his mouth was, "All right, where is he?"
Of course, I'm thinking, "...Are you blind?" but I figured "Gift horse. Mouth. Do not look" and went along with it.
Me: I don't know what you're talking about.
Creeper: Do not be stupid. I know everything about the little worm. You posted it all on that stupid blog of yours. Now where is he?
Me: Look, get the hell out of my room before I cave in your balls again.
Creeper: Do not even think about. You surprised me that time.
Me: Yeah, yeah, you just say that to make yourself feel better. [At this point I see Daniel start to make his way towards the door. I'm trying my hardest not to act like he's there.] What are you trying to accomplish, anyway? We're in a public area. I could start screaming and someone would notice something's going on.
Creeper: I think you underestimate your fellow man. Now tell me where he is, or else I will...[He suddenly stops mid-sentence and turns around. Daniel's frozen in place, just about to make a run for the door. I start swearing mentally.] What...? How...?
And this is the point where things got dangerous. And weird. So I'm standing there, trying to think of what to do when Creeper grabs me. I go into panic mode, but vaguely remember hearing him say, "Now, then, you are going to come with me. If you do not, I snap her neck. You know I can do it, so do not try..." Then he just stops. There's this period of total, utter silence and then he lets me go. I get out of arm's reach, and when I see his face, he has this...look. His eyes are huge, his mouth is kinda slack, and you'd think that he either saw the gateway to heaven or the most horrifying thing he'd ever seen in his life.
But it was just Daniel. Granted, Daniel was glaring, which I have never seen him do before, but it was just Daniel. Creeper tries to speak, stops, then he just walks out. His facial expression never changes, he never says anything else. He even closes the door behind him. He was polite. There was a stretch where neither me nor Daniel said anything, then...
Me: What. What the hell was that? Daniel, what did you do?
Daniel: i told him to leave. and he did it. [Please note he looks severely freaked out as he writes this.]
Me: Daniel, you didn't say anything.
Daniel: i know, it was like...when i looked at him, i thought it...and he heard me.
Daniel: alora, i could hear his thoughts. he was really going to kill you if i didn't...did i just make him leave by thinking?!
Daniel: *blank stare of WTF*
So yeah, nothing really special, except for the fact that, DANIEL IS A BLEEPING CONDUIT WITH BLEEPING MIND POWERS. What. What. What.
I...I need to lie down now.
And yes, he is just as freaked out by all of his as I am.
P.S. Please report here and here. Jean's gone missing and we have to get her back, fast. (Seriously, today has just been effed up.)
