Chapter One

I couldn't sit still. I didn't usually have a huge problem with planes, only with landing. My ears hurt like hell. My head felt like it was going to explode, but the happy thought of what the next few days would bring kept me going. I have wanted to go to vidcon ever since I was 13 when I became a huge fan of smosh. I was also obsessed with Toby Turner, in fact I was wearing my blue Tobuscus hoodie right at that moment. That thing was like another limb, I always wore it. My best friend Alley was with me also, she was a huge fan of nigahiga and tobuscus. It was our first time traveling alone but this was going to be the best vacation ever.

"I can't believe we're gonna meet Toby!" Alley screamed as we entered our hotel room.

"I'm going to wake up at 5:30 tomorrow, kay?" I said.

"Paige!" Alley Whined, "I'm not a weird early bird like you, I prefer to sleep in till noon every day."

"Well if we want to get to vidcon on time tomorrow, you're going to have to wake up a little earlier than normal," I replied.

"Ugh fine, I don't think I'm going to be able to sleep anyway, not with the thought of Toby in my mind," Alley replied dreamily.

"Or Anthony," I said with a smirk on my face. "But anyway if we do actually want to wake up in the morning we should go to bed it's already one in the morning!"

"Fine," sighed Alley, "But I call the window bed!"

"No fair!" I protested but I climbed into the other double bed anyway, too lazy and tired to brush my teeth or put pyjamas on. I could dream about tomorrow all night long.


I reread the note about a thousand time trying to figure out if it was legit or not. "Perform tomorrow and die". I shivered. "Ian maybe we shouldn't perform tomorrow," I said shakily.

"Dude, we have the most amazing fans in the world. We would be total douche bags if we didn't go on tomorrow," he replied.

"But the note said-" I began but Ian cut me off. "It was probably just someone trying to scare us. Besides, Internet Slasher? What kind of dumb name is that?" he replied confidently.

"I guess your right, we should get some sleep now."

"Alright Ant, night."

Then the light went out.


"Oh my gosh Paige we're gonna see smosh live on stage in two minutes!"

"Haha, I know!" I replied in an exited whisper. Honestly I don't know how I was managing to stay in my seat, this was the moment I was waiting for all my life!

The crowd started cheering as they walked onto stage and I just about broke down into tears. But then a sound I never expected to hear in my life. 5 gunshots rang through the room just before the crowd bursted into panic.
