When I started playing Animal Jam, I thought it was just an educational, safe and fun game for kids. But that all changed when the virus started.

The virus was a virus that came from a certain rare item called: "Phantom Blood". It was a huge jar of purple liquid that you can put in your den. Like other interactive furniture, if you clicked on it, it will spill over. You should never click on it, because if it spills over, then a pop up will appear saying: "Your computer has been infected by a virus. Please do a scan." If you listen to the pop up and do the scan, then after the scan is over it will say that it found a virus called phantom.exe.

When I encountered it, I thought the pop up was nothing but an annoying ad, and I closed it. The next day when I played animal jam, I thought it wasn't real. The daily spin instead of giving you gems, gives you a gift, and it is always the item: phantom blood.

When I closed out of the daily spin, the Jamaa news said: "Phantom virus infects Jamaa". I was very scared. I walked around. Everyone was a phantom with scary names. For example: "dark scary phantom" or "sir jammer killer". I tried to look in my items. All of them had been phantomized.

Then, my screen turned black, and a phantom appeared on it. It spoke in a weird voice and it was saying that I was infected by the phantom virus. When I returned to Animal Jam, I too had turned into a phantom. Even my pet had turned into one. I felt like crying. But then I saw Liza, and Peck. They were perfectly normal. I felt a glimmer of hope, but all the jammers that had turned into phantoms started chasing them, and they started surrounding them. After the crowd of phantoms were gone, I saw Liza and Peck. And to my horror, they were turning into phantoms. And then, they spoke. They said: "Welcome to phantom jam!". My screen turned dark, and so did my love of "Animal Jam".
