ghoul shit's starting

you've been warned

I feel terrible. I shouldn't have done what I did. It shouldn't have been Hyunjin and now all I can think about is the taste of his flesh that I probably have digested now. He tasted so good that my tongue still tingles at the thought of him. Why him?

"How are you feeling?"

I was so lost in my thoughts that I didn't notice that Woojin has been staring at me for quite a while now. It's already the Afternoon and I still haven't slept. Hyunjin on the other hand, became a little weak after I...

Sigh.

"Not good I guess?" Woojin sat down beside me. My craving for others have disappeared, replaced by a hundred percent craving for Hyunjin. Good things can be bad things just like bad things can be good things.

I don't have even the slightest bit of energy to talk to anyone right now. I feel like the complete monster I became and my blood boils as I think about Jeongin. I have to kill him.

Wait, should I really be angry? I mean he didn't mean for the branch to fall of but he also didn't save me on on purpose. So yes, I should he angry.

But no– wait. This isn't me. I don't scheme things like this and, being the softie is also not me. I'm a whole different person now. I can't recognize myself anymore. Everything happened so fast that my intellect wasn't able to keep up.

"Do you want to know more about yourself?" Woojin is still trying to make me talk to him and it's honestly annoying me so much. Everything bitter about my personality heightened due to this ghoul within me or maybe– I'm just being the old Jinwoo right now.

Is there even an old or new Jinwoo? Or just the Jinwoo with Hyunjin and the Jinwoo without Hyunjin?

"Keep talking and I swear I'll eat you," I snapped. I really need a time alone now and yes I know that Woojin didn't do anything wrong. In fact, he was trying to help me in a way but I'm a huge mess right now and I just want to isolate myself and reflect on everything that has changed.

He sighed before walking towards the door. My back is facing him but I can still definitely hear and feel his presence.

"The red eye shows up in your control but it also automatically shows up when you're feeling a deep certain kind of emotion or when you're hungry. I don't know which one is yours but just call me if you need anything."

Then he left the room, closing the door quietly behind him. Oh, that's his mistake. Now that my personalities and emotions are mixed up, I can do things that I may regret as a normal human. Just by thinking about this, I can already feel the remorse.

I have to get out of here. I want to leave. I want to stop craving for Hyunjin. I don't want to hurt him.

Then go. There's the window at your service.

W-what?

"Who was that?" I asked loudly, now being deliberate of my surroundings even though I can't feel any presence around me.

Me. Hi.

My body froze and my eyes widened as I hear the strange voice again. It sounds like me...It's definitely my voice but how is that possible?

I'm your ghoul. Nice to meet you sweetheart.

I frowned. So now we can talk like this? So it is legit that there's a ghoul inside of me and it can control me– it can take over my body when I don't have my guard up?
