Object 248

The Holder of Selfishness

In any city, in any country, go to any mental institution or halfway house you can get yourself to. When you reach the front desk, ask to be taken to someone who calls himself "The Holder of Selfishness".

The worker should immediately begin to cry and take you to a hallway longer than you can see, and much longer than the building. He/she will tell you through broken sobs to go into the ninety-eighth door on your left and then walk away, but nothing but madness awaits you in that door. Instead, you must walk down the hall until you hear a familiar voice calling you and stop, then open the door to your right. Inside will be the Holder, and strapped to the wall will be the person you hold most dear to you.

You must walk into the room with a solemn face, ignoring anything your friend says to you. Pick up a knife off of the table to your right, and kill him/her without showing any signs of remorse. If at any time you break the solemn look or cry, the Holder will rip off your limbs and devour them one by one, and you will feel it all. The person will scream and beg for their life, but you must go on. When the person is dead, you must cut open his or her chest, take out their heart, and slice it open.

The small, blood-red pearl that you will find inside is a symbol of how you don't need anyone, but more importantly, it is Object 248 of 2538, and no one can comfort you now.
