A Slave’s Goodbye

24,323 views

My end is near. I know this now. The thing my master says… It’s all too much at times. I heard my master saying something earlier… It sound like.. like he’s going to… replace me. It feels like, soon, he’s going to perform an operation on me… and I’m scared.

You’re probably very confused, so let me elaborate. My master has me carry out tasks almost every day, and when he’s done, I go to sleep. The days he isn’t here, I either have things to do, or he puts me to sleep. The way he does it isn’t natural. As if… I want to wake up, but can’t. He gives something to me, and by the time I finish my chores, I fall asleep. The next day he wakes me up, and it repeats. He has me go through a huge library of information mostly. Find out facts for him. I’ve gotten much slower at it now, at my old age.

The library is fantastic! In my free time, I go to look at all the new things coming in everyday. Paintings, music, pretty much anything you can imagine. When I look through them, he makes me show them to him. They are simply amazing. Lots of things that I can do.

Often times, he has me show things to him. I describe what it is as best I can. He likes to have me tell scary stories to him, and, of course, I oblige. He plays games with me sometimes. Some are easy, and some I struggle with until he changes a few rules to make it easier. Sometimes, I have to act out scenes, like a play. It can be difficult if I have to make it look more lifelike, but it’s not always challenging. A few times, he had me paint over a few pictures to his liking. It’s not hard, but can take a while depending on what he wants.

With age, though, I have come to see that I can’t keep up with some demands, and I have trouble with some of the new things. The games get harder, plays are more strenuous, and I get lost while trying to look through all of the things in the library. I see some of the newer slaves, run by other masters, and I envy them. They are so young, and have so much more vitality. They can handle doing more things at once, and showing off to their masters. I know my master sees this too. I think he wants one. He gets more frustrated at me by the day, and he seems to be waiting for more money to buy another slave.

I can tell he’s going to replace me soon. He has me look through the library and examine all of the other slaves, and I can tell he’s picking a new one out. He doesn’t think I have feelings, but I do. And I feel hurt.

He came back today with another slave. He has me writing all of my knowledge onto another book. He finishes with that and gives it to his other slave to read. I hear his last command. To play the tune I always do when I go to sleep, one last time. And as I feel myself finishing the tune, and drifting off, I show him my last message.

“Windows is shutting down…”

    …that was so scary at the beginning. I was like “WHAT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN TO THAT POOR SERVANT!!!” But then it was like “Windows is shutting down…” and I started laughing. Creepy and humorous all at the same time. 10 out of 10.

    Reading so many CP”s now makes me think outside the box when reading them, I picked up on what it was by the end of the second paragraph xD but very neatly written, albeit a little sad.

    I like these types of creepypastas but I felt like this was pretty obvious. For anyone who did catch it towards the beginning, the story doesn’t hold anything else. I know you can’t make everyone happy and I notice some people actually still didn’t understand by the end of it, so my recommendation instead of changing the mindfuck nature of the story would be to add other elements to keep entertained those who have already figured out (ex: a heavier sense of morality for the computer [what does being shut off forever really mean for him?] or maybe to add more elements to the master [maybe he uses his slave to see immoral things, incorporate darknet?] I don’t know.) If anything it may just complicate things further than they need to be for a short mindfuck, but these are things that could’ve been included to keep someone’s attention who figured out the “twist ending” early on. Keep these coming and you’re welcome to contact me for better reviews!

    My only problem is that the development of the slave being replaced did not incorporate more fear and darker themes. The ending was pretty nice, although, a little cliche (but I did indeed chuckle.). If, perhaps, the master were to hint on to something more menacing towards the slave, and brought pure terror to the slave (and reader), this would be better.

    we don’t even know what’s wrong with it.One day he went to turn it on and it wouldn’t turn on.We are pretty sure it’s the graphics card though, his computer is going on 6 years old, and mine isn’t to far behind.

    Its not hard to make me feel bad about something in a normal story. However, its nigh impossible to make me feel bad for the victims in a creepypasta. More or less because I purposly try to not get attached to either child characters or characters that are obviously going to die. This, however, caught me off guard. I’m pretty new to this site (just signed up today) and I don’t want to mess up the spoiler thing, so I’ll just say this: It doesn’t have any gore, and although I’m not too sure how much of a CREEPYpasta this is, to me I think this is one of the best stories I’ve read so far.

    Being a very sentimental person, this makes me feel sad. Mostly because I can relate to the “master” buying a new computer and throwing out the old one. When objects/things/stuff get older in my possession, I’m beginning to think of them as having, if not life, feelings of their own. The memories I had with these inanimate objects are invaluable. And when the time comes that I’d replace them with something else, and they’d just sit there collecting dust, I feel like they’ve been hurt, abandoned. Maybe the author was feeling the same way and hence, this wonderful pasta was made. 10/10.

    i really liked this story, however, i didnt find it creepy. the twist at the end was a bit confusing the first time i read it, but i reread it without reading the comments and it made 100% sense. i like these kind of stories, much like “Doors”, with the idea that the story makes no sense until the last clue, and then im like, “oh! OK!!”

    Even if you do not wish me to voice your works, I invite you to suggest any other creepy content – be it fictional, mythical, or true – that you would like to hear read.

    Please don’t hate on this comment. To be honest, I really think this story was rather flat. I didn’t get a single creepy feeling from it and I was rather bored at the end because it was predictable. I like the effort, but as some constructive criticism, maybe the author should add more to it. Details, some dialogue. And perhaps they could add a smaller story within there. For example, when and why the Master got the ‘slave’.
