The Grand Opening!
TRIGGER WARNING: WARNING THERE ARE TRIGGERING TOPICS IN THIS CHAPTER.
Previously on Five Nights of Freddy’s,
Mike Schmidt was in Freddy Fazbears Pizza working to earn some money. For less than a week he worked and experienced things that only Hell could compare. Hunted by animatronics, witnessing the disturbing deaths of young children, and nearly getting killed by his manager Jonathan who planned the entire scheme, Mike went through a week of pure torture.
As of now, Jonathan is incarcerated and has been for 2 years. The pizza place immediately shut down after the incidents, and Mike, the former night guard, seemed to have stepped off of the grid. The harrowing events Mike had been through left him in a terrible state of being. He landed himself in the hospital 3 times for attempted suicide, and spent many nights away in mental hospitals watched carefully by doctors and nurses.
Mike was diagnosed with DID (dissociative Identity disorder or multiple personality disorder), anxiety, depression, PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder), Bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia. His episodes continue worsening and worsening as months pass by.
Now, let’s get back to the present time…
Hi! I am Jeremy Fitzgerald, as of February I am 24 years old, and for the last 3 years I have been… unemployed. I know, I know, but I had much more important things to do... Like taking care of Mike! Mike is my best friend, we have known each other since we were children. It has been 3 months since I heard from him and it really has me worried. For two years me and my older sister Maddie(27) have been paying for his hospital bills and making sure he takes his medication. All of a sudden three months ago, Mike vanished and no one has been able to get a hold of him. Occasionally I get a call or text from him telling me it’s ok, but other than that it’s almost like he was never here to begin with.
My older sister Maddie has been using her time doing something a bit more productive than I. Ever since the closing of Freddy Fazbears Pizza, she has been working on opening a brand new and improved pizzeria.
Today is finally the day; The grand opening of the new and improved Freddy Fazbear’s Pizzeria! And guess who’s the CEO and Manager? Yup, it’s Maddie. Now that Mike seems to be ok on his own (I think), I am planning to apply to work at the pizzeria.
So, I texted Maddie:
12PM: Jeremy- “Hey Mad can I apply for a job at the new pizzeria?.”
12:20 PM: Maddie- “Hey Jeremy, sure you can!! There is a flyer in the mailbox just take a look at it and all of the information is there. We could really use your help. I’ve been so busy with the grand opening!! Text me once you decide to apply.”
I checked the mailbox and there was a huge flyer:
Be the new face of Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza!
Job Openings: Security Guard (Day or Night)
When?: Monday- Friday
Salary: $20/hour (including tips made)
Call now to apply (555- Freddy’s)
Ms. Maddie Fitzgerald (CEO)
I stumbled back in slight disbelief upon looking at the flier, my chair wiggling carefully as I regained my balance. The hourly wage seems to be really good for a night guard at a pizza place. I wonder if taking the job would be a good idea since Mike was a security guard at the old place and he ended up in the mental hospital. I would hate it if it happened to me. But, I really need the money. furrowing my eyebrows, I shifted my eyes back to my phone and pulled up my messages with Maddie.
2:01PM- Jeremy- “Hey Mad. I looked at the flyer. I am interested in the job!!”
2:59PM- Maddie- “Sounds Great! Sorry, I was so busy.”
3:25PM- Jeremy- “When do I start? Can I start with the day shift?”
3:26PM- Maddie- “You can start tonight 12AM Monday. We don’t have the day shift available, so you can start with the night shift and then once the day shift is open. I will let you know. The shift is from 12AM- 6AM. Let me know if you need anything. I will come and see you in the morning after your shift. Sorry bro. Love ya.
3:55PM- Jeremy- Okay, sounds good! It’s okay sis. I love you too.
I’m really excited for the new job! But, I am also scared!! The thought of going back to work for the first time in forever makes me feel like a thousand little butterflies and flying around in my stomach and ants are crawling up my body.
My phone lights up and buzzes in my pocket. I pull it out to glance at who is interrupting my new job excitement. My heart drops to the floor and tears pool in my eyes begging to fall. It was Mike who texted me. The waterfall began and I dropped to the floor sobbing. My knees bruised and aching but that didn’t matter. I was so worried about him. My best friend who I haven’t seen in months. I quickly attempted to collect myself and clear my vision to read his message.
3:58PM- Mike- Hey Jeremy. I am so sorry that I haven’t responded to you in months. I have been having a hard time mentally and have been admitted to mental hospitals 3 times this year. How are you doing? I have some news.
3:59PM- Jeremy- Bro! I am so happy to hear from you! I was so scared that you werent okay. I am doing well, I got a job at the new pizzeria! What’s your news??
4:01PM- Mike- THAT’S AMAZING! ...You know Jonathan?
4:02PM- Jeremy- The guy that was your manager, and he traumatized you?
4:07PM- Mike- Yeah. He killed himself in prison. It’s on the news. He hung himself.
4:08PM- Jeremy- Really? I hate that bitch. He scared me when we were kids. I miss you so much!
4:10PM- Mike- I miss you too. I am happy that he is finally gone and out of my life.
4:12PM- Jeremy- Do you wanna hangout at my place tomorrow after I come from work?
4:14PM- Mike- Sure. What time?
4:15PM- Jeremy- How about 12PM?
4:17PM- Mike- Sure! It was so nice talking to you!
4:18PM- Jeremy- See you after my shift!
Waves of happiness washed over me and more excitement began to create a lake in my heart. Realizing how hard I fell down to the ground, I groaned as I slowly stood up and rushed to my living room. I turned on the TV and I saw the news headline: Ex- Manager of the permanently closed Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza hung himself in a stall in the jail bathroom. His name was Jonathan Smith and was found dead this morning. There is a grand opening for the new Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza. CEO Maddie Fitzgerald opened the place up this afternoon and it is so much bigger than the other pizzeria.
I am going to need some sleep, I know it’s like 5PM, but tonight is going to be a big night and I need to sleep for a couple of hours before I get going for my shift as the night guard at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizzeria. .
