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.
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…
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.
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.
