The CRT TV buzzed and glowed in the dark living room. The volume was low but the two boys were close enough to the screen that it didn't matter. The old grandfather clock chimed 12 times, it was already midnight.

"Come on, Jimmy..." Mike whined, "You've been at it for the past hour, let me try, I know how to get through this castle."

Jimmy made a frustrated noise as Mario overshot his jump and flew directly into a fire stick for the umpteenth time. "No, Mikey." He whispered, "I've almost got it. I just need a couple more tries."
