Killer Darkness © copyright of LunaHart
I feel a warm breath on my neck, breathing deeply in and out. My heart racing, I whip my head around to see who is there – nobody. It comes again. I try running away but it’s no use; everything around me is beginning to fade away into the darkness, dragging me along with it.
Then I see it. The figure is standing away from me, I feel as if I’m being pulled forward but I know it’s him. When he moves forward he makes no sound, just as if he doesn’t exist. My head lurches forward as he grabs my face, his soulless eyes are nothing but darkness, his face and body are transparent but misty black as if he is absorbing the Darkness himself.
I look into his eyes, I know I should not but I do anyway.
All my happiness is unravelling out of my mind and feeding its way into his. My head starts spinning and flashing all my lost memories then taking them away again. I have lots of questions to ask. I try to speak but nothing comes out. I try again. Nothing.
“I have returned. The Seeker is back.” I know he is speaking even though his pale lips do not move. Voices echo all around me, repeating the message. There are lots of voices, all of them different but all them belong to him. The Seeker.
He nudges me back and forth, back and forth; slowly increasing in speed each time as if it will make the throbbing pain worse. What more does he want, after all, he has taken most of my happiness – but not all of it.
A part of it still remains, a part I will never be able to let go.
