Dear Santa,

Bring back Kittygirl4015. Please.

For days my heart has throbbed. For days I have spent countless sleepless nights. For days I have suffered. “Why?” you asked. 

It all started on November 13, 2020-the day of Lil Nas X’s Roblox concert. At approximately 10 a.m, I logged onto Roblox and joined Adopt Me with Kittygirl4015, my girlfriend. Well, technically she’s not because I haven’t asked her out yet. However, yesterday (the day we met), she said I’m cool so I’m pretty sure she liked me. 

Anyways, me and her fed and bathed our adopted daughter, CharliDmeliofan2012, then I went to work in the local coffee shop. 2 game-time hours later, I told Kittygirl4015 about the Lil Nas X concert and said I would love to have her with me there at 10:00 p.m. She agreed. After that, I worked out my legs in Weight Lifting Simulator 5 (it was leg day) for a few minutes with my friends before logging off Roblox.

The tragedy occurred at around 9:50 p.m. When I logged back on Roblox, it showed Kittygirl4015 participating in the Lil Nas X Concert. I was curious as to why she was so early, so I joined her. However, I committed a grave mistake. When I joined, next to her avatar was Robowarrior1738. I have seen him around Kittygirl4015 fairly often in Adopt Me, hanging around her when I was biking with CharliDmeliofan2012. 

After seeing me, she left the game with Robowarrior1738. It all went downhill from there. Before deleting me from her friends list, she took custody of CharliDmeliofan2012 and disappeared. 

It’s been almost a month Santa. I miss her so much. I know I am a hopeless romantic, but I have been nothing but a good boy. Please. I know you are a man of miracles, so that’s why I’m counting on you to bring Kittygirl4015, the girl of my dreams, back into my life. That is all that I want for Christmas.
