This story inspired from tv series titled Mr. Robot by Sam Esmail
My name is Ben. I’m the only child in this family, that makes me feel so lonely. My parent always worried about me. Being quiet and shy wasn’t something that I wanted. I always get bullied by my friends, actually they are not my friends.
I have only one friend, his name is Tom. He is the only one who are still wanted to be my friend. He tough and brave, so different to me. He always helped me when I get bullied. And I was never come to his house, so I don’t know where he lives. Because he always came to my home to play with me.
Someday, in a holiday I was sitting with Tom at my room. We are talking about my new game console that my mom bought last week for me. And then we start playing games. That was a good time, which makes us forget the time. But my mom looking at me with an anxious face. I don’t know what’s wrong with me, so I ignored her.
In another day, he came to my home and asked me to go to the park. I accept his invitation, then we are going to the park. At the park, we start playing catch ball. The other kids looking at me strangely. This happens again. Mom always acts like this when I was playing with Tom.
When I go home, I knew there was something strange. Where is Tom? I thought he was right beside me. I’m confused, then I ran home. When I got home, I asked frantically to my mom, what happened to me? Where is Tom? Why you all always look at me like that? She just silent before she could query what had just happened. There is no Tom, Ben, she said. Finally, I realized she was right, there is no Tom. The truth is I always playing alone and start creating Tom as my friend then act as Ben and Tom by turn.
