I’ll never forget that face…

 

The face that haunted my every nebulous dream and thoughts. The face that made me reckless and desperate. 

 

I never asked for this!  What did I do to receive this cruel punishment?!!

 

 

I wish I can go back…             

                                         Back, so I will never have to

                                                                                              Ever see that face again…

 

“Run!” he screamed. As my father’s voice ricochet the forest, I took one last look over my shoulder at the flames showing hints of their furious anger. The once silent night, now erupted with a thundering stampede and deep roars for justice. 

The face.

 

It ALL started with the face…

My heart pounded as I speed and crossed the wide creek, hearing noises slowly fade away.  The scenery was a blur as I raced to home. My breathing turned into pants as I came to a halt. The hidden cave engulfed me with darkness as I collapsed in a heap when I reached to deepest part of the hallow cave. Memories came surging back making me feel ill, it’s the 12th day since the ‘face’ arrived making me…

..*…*…*..

I woke up with a startle, feeling familiar powerless feeling over took me. I got up slowly walking back to the entrance making me internally wince from the blinding light. I unconsciously sniffed the air, then it hit me.

Running towards the divine smell, I stopped by a small hut. I peered inside the window curiously, a 6 year old girl softly sleeping. She had every aspects of a brunette doll. I stood there, my eyes slowly changing colours.

Does she like tea-parties?

Why does she look pretty?

Hmm, wonder if she wants to go play with me?

 

Thoughts entered my mind as I stared at her intently, within an hour my movements were uncontrolled as I walked up to her in agonizing steps.

I licked my lips…

The face!!

I looked down and was on my knees, my shirt was torn and covered with blood. In my arms, her glassy eyes were shot open and her mouth ajar to form a silent scream never to be heard. Her body was slashed, bitten and half eaten.

I silently cried, it wasn’t even my fault! I slowly shook my head, I should be used to this. It killed at least every day now, I wanted it to stop.

Drying my tears, I stood up carrying the pale, tiny girl in my arms I buried her under a tree. Waking up I realized I moved towards isolation and now wanting to bathe myself I caught hold of someone in the water.

The Face”

 

It was horrifying, the eyes rimmed with purple as the eyes were a dangerous red colour. The nose looking like holes dug on the face as its mouth was a disgusting green. Hairs slowly growing on the face while it looked at my soul.

I cried in agony as I felt a piercing stab near my heart. I plunged in the water making it redder with my own blood. I slowly felt myself sinking. 

A hand shoot up from under, a fragile silhouette emerges…

 

While the creek was polluted with purple.
