When I looked at myself in the mirror this morning, I knew it would be my last day here. I had been a student at Innerstar University for nearly four years, and I was going to dearly miss it. What would happen to me? I was just a cyber avatar. Would I perish, ending up in the dreaded computer file trash can?

Screen Shot 2015-11-03 at 5.48.23 PMI didn’t want to think about the end of today. I stepped out of my walk-in closet, knowing that in just a few hours, I would never step into it again.

“I love you, Coconut.” I told my favorite pet. Would I ever see her again?

I would never enter it again.

Screen Shot 2015-11-03 at 5.49.03 PMI walked a little ways away from it and savored the warm sunshine and green grass. ISU was always happy, all-year round. Now, it was coming to a close. A shut-down. A complete deleting and erasing. I was going to perish.

Screen Shot 2015-11-03 at 5.49.44 PMI walked down the path to the river. It’s soft, calm sound only made me more sad. Would I ever stand here and listen to it again? No, I wouldn’t.

Screen Shot 2015-11-03 at 5.50.14 PMI walked a little more to behind a bush. I wanted to cry, but I had no time to lose – I had to go to a few favorite places before my world – literally – was going to end.

Screen Shot 2015-11-03 at 5.50.36 PM I tried really, really hard not to cry as I came near U-Shine Hall. My best friends Caitlin and Piper and I had so many dance-a-thons here!

Screen Shot 2015-11-05 at 5.51.02 PMThere were only a few more minutes until the final shut-down. Tears stung my virtual eyes as I came upon Five-Points Plaza. I walked up the starry pink bridge and watched the fountain. My eyes started to blur, and tears spilled out.

“Oh, my beautiful home. I am going to miss you so much,” I whispered.

Screen Shot 2015-11-05 at 5.52.02 PMAt Sparkle Studios, I went behind the studio and surrounded myself with nature. I looked about the green world and smiled.

One last smile.

All of the sudden, a cyner armegeddon happened.

Pixels and designs started to smash into each other.

I looked around frantically. Flashes of colorful, frightening glitches streaked by.

I couldn’t hear a thing.

I opened my mouth to scream, but no sound came out.

I felt dizzy and sick.

Screen Shot 2015-11-05 at 5.54.03 PMOne, last blurry image of the Brighstar House flashed before my eyes. It blurred a little more, glitched here and there, and I felt myself falling.

I’m perishing! I’m perishing! I wanted to scream, but it only raced over and over again in my mind.

All went black.

Innerstar University officially shut down on November 5, 2015, at 5:54 PM.

Madison 2465 wished you a very bitter farewell and said she was going to desperately find a way to communicate with you all somehow, wherever she ended up, if her files have not been destroyed and erased.
