The True soul of a monster: part 2

The sea was cold and black just like everything else in her life, dull and cold, she refused to let anything into her life even her sister, she cared for her dearly yes but she could not love her something broke inside her the day her parents died. They had all been so happy and carefree for most of their lives, mother who would do nothing all day besides knit and read books before the fireplace, father who would manage his business from his office at home. Sweet sister and her playing on the rug in the living room while Copper, the stray dog who found its way into the house and their family, lay curled up next to them. Everything was perfect until that winter night, the snow storm was the worst they have ever had, they lived so far away from town that mother and father day to travel by horse to get them supplies to last until the snow would melt. She remembered being curled up in front of the fireplace with her sister shivering with copper in the middle of them sharing his warm golden fur with them. Mother and father had left early that morning but they still had not come back even after hours of waiting, then night fell and the sun rose the next morning, one of the horses that had carried her parents came back that morning and was frightened they could barely get the poor dear back into the barn.

The horse was covered in scars and claw marks that both of the girls knew all too well, it was the marks of the snow wolves that hunted in this part of the lands, the girls had lost their older brother to the wolves two years ago she remembers the grim look on father’s face as he walked back to the house with brothers gun and the scream that came from mother followed by sobs is something that haunted her dreams even now. Their neighbor had come to see then a day or two later, he had mother’s purse slung across the back of his horse’s saddle. That was when she felt it the drift in her soul, the breaking in her chest, she could not cry or scream, or move she just shut down. Her sister sobbed into her hands as Clint handed over the bag to her with a look on his face that told us exactly what we both had already knew.

Clint helped both of them taking on the role of their lost uncle, while sister became a copy of mother always telling her what to do and how and when, with no room for argument. Which did not bother her as much as she thought it would, no her and sister were always close and sister would always tell her what to do any ways.

She was snapped back into her body as the laughing filled her head once more. Oh my sweet darling, do you not like what you see. No one ever does my dear, this is you underneath that pretty face and human flesh you are as much a monster as me. You can not escape me, you cannot run from me.

She realized that the voice in her head was right, she could not run or fight. She was this monster, this horrible disgusting thing that stood before her, was her.  The empty chest, the bloody claws, the hollow eyes, everything, it was all her and the way she chose to live her life. She thought she was going to be sick, how could she be this thing, how could she fall so deep into despair.

Sister, I know that you are scared to let someone near you, but it is okay, because no matter how scared you are to love someone, I will just have to love you twice as hard. You can push me away and fight me tooth and claw, but I will always be here right beside you, I will hold on to you no matter what, you may not be my child by birth but after raising you for so long, you are mine dear sister and I will not let you push me away. 

That was voice the one that she knew far too well filled her head, the voice that was sweet as honeysuckle and soft as a cloud, it was a voice of pure love. Her sister’s voice filled her head and the image of her being pinned down by her sister after they had been fighting about why she refused to love anyone even charming Rayden, who day after day still stood by her side even if he knew how broken she was. Her sister screamed at her to understand that she was loved even if she refused to love anyone else.

She felt it, the hot tears that spilled from her eyes and dripped into the blackness before her. She was this heartless monster but yet they still love her. They both still fought for her, trying to bring her into the light and out of this darkness that surrounded her. Maybe this is how everyone truly saw her and she was just now seeing it herself, but if they could love her even in this disgusting, broken form, then just maybe.

“I am not afraid of you. I know that you are me, just as I am you. I might be terrified of you but I know that you are just as terrified of me. For I am the thing of your nightmares, you refuse to love because you are scared of losing love, therefore you have no heart but I do. You hollow out your eyes so you can only see the black in life, but I see everything, all the colors that make you wither away to your hole of black. Your claws drip with blood from all the fighting you do to keep others away, but I let them in, I crave their touch even if I do not want it, I need to feel their love even if I hate it. That dagger on your tail is your way of dealing with your problems by slicing through them so they can no longer exist. I hold these daggers to defend myself so that no one else may hurt me, I do not slice through my problems I run from them I run from everything that crosses me. I am your nightmare just as you are mine.”

You sweet darling doe are the first to ever except my form. You are the first to stare at your true self and not crumble from the fear and disgust that is truly you. So now I just have one question for you. What will you do now? Will you continue to run from your fears? Will you keep pushing others away? Will you ever learn to love? Will you truly become me? Or, will you fight? Will you try to change your ways and become something more than this, something more than me?

She opened her eyes to see the beast that stood before her once again and stared at that one blue eye, and seen the tears sliding down its face, this beast that she had created did not ask to be made this way. It did not ask to be turned into this demon, it was her fault that she was destroying herself. She walked toward the beast slowly with every shaking step echoing off the walls of the cave. She touched the leather skin that made her stomach flip and roll inside her, she wiped away the tears that slid from the eye so much like her mother’s. 

“I will change for the both of us. I will fix this brokenness that resides in both of us if you just let me have that stone. I. . . I just want to save my sister. . . please she is the only thing I have left in this world.” The beast before her stood tall and straighten so it now towered over her.

My darling you are already changing. You came here to face me. You did not run from your fears. You put the love you feel for your sister before yourself. You tried not to love but yet you have my dear. I will let you take the stone if you keep your promise to change, but not for me but for yourself.

“I promise. . . I promise to try.” The beast raised a claw to wipe away the tears that slid down her face, she tried not to flinch as the touch of the cold metal claw. Then the beast spoke softly into her mind once more as it handed her the stone of life that would save her sister’s life.

You are bound by the bond of promise to change for better, for not only me but for yourself. I look forward to seeing you change and maybe you could stop by again, if the fear does not consume you. If you break your bond to me I will find you and your sister I will take back the life that I so freely gave to you my darling. 

“Yes, I will keep my bond” She took one last look into the eye of her mother and turned to what she assumed was the door of the cave then the two spirit’s that danced before her, leading the way back to home.

I wish you the best on your journey to a life that will make you happy and fill your soul with hope my darling.

She turned to take one last look into the cave but there was nothing there and she could now see the cave in the light as she turned and found the cave entrance to be shimmering in the bright light of the moon. the cave being no deeper than a closest in her home. She would have thought it all a dream if it were not for the purple rock that laid in her hand but there was something else as she looked at her wrist she seen a small black heart, like a tattoo was just place upon her. She rubbed the mark and yet it still remained. Then like a whisper being carried on the wind she felt the slightest tingle in her right ear as the words filled her mind once more

This is our deal and the heart reminds you not to forget. My darling I will be seeing you again. Always watching you. You must remember the deal we have made fore I would hate to take the one thing you love from you, but hear me when I say that I will without hesitation. She sucked the night air into her lungs and ran for their house.

Once she made it to the golden warm glow of the cabin lights she could see copper waiting in the window patiently as if he had never moved from the spot since she left. Just like a mother hen she thought as she slung the door open and fell to her knees on the floor before her sister that was shaking so uncontrollably, she was freezing from the inside but the she was drenched in sweat burning up on the outside.

She pressed the stone to her sister’s heart and spoke softly like her sister always had to her.

“Emily, I am so sorry. I have always pushed you away and pushed away anyone you tired to love. I . . .  I just need you to come back. I love you Emily. . .  I really do love you. So please come back to me. I need you to be here with me.”

She tried to hold back the tears that now flowed down her face and choked back the sobs as she kept waiting for something to happen, anything to happen. She laid her head down on her sisters folded hand and cried into the covers that laid upon Emily. She was giving up, she knew this could not work, this was a stupid idea all along. It was then that the bright purple light filled the cabin as the warm blast waved through her, Copper was there at her side barking demanding whatever threat was there to leave them alone, but as soon as it happened it was gone. The light was sucked away into her sister as she watched the purple glow settle beneath the golden skin of her sister that was just white and pale as a ghost.

She breathing flattened out, the shaking slowly stopped and the sweat that soaked every inch of her skin was gone. She stared down at her sister and Copper was sniffing around Emily as if trying to find that purple light again. Emily’s eyes fluttered open those green eyes flecked with golden spots as they searched the room around her until they landed on her face.

“Elya? What happened? Why are we. . .?

“Emily! I love you. I love you so much Emily. I do. Please do not ever leave me again please!”

She cried into her sister’s arms as the warm soft touch of Emily’s love warped itself around her and held her tightly and kissed the top of her head.

“I always knew you did my little Elya all you had to do was try”

 

 

Well I finished it finally. Sorry I have been away for so long it has been a long couple of months with moving houses and family happening. Just crazy but I am back now and I will try to keep posting one story a day. So keep a lookout for tomorrow’s story!

The true soul of a monster

She had made it to the place where the many others that came before her had stood and lost themselves in the black madness that was practically trying to claw it way out of that gave and into her mind. Come my darling little doe and see for yourself why those who speak my name tremble in fear. She knew that voice would be one of silk but she was not ready for the smooth husky tone that filled her ears like the call of a siren and the scent of lavender and jasmine mixed with the smell of firewood on a snowy night filled her nose. She shuddered at the sound and smell that took over all her other senses. I know why you came my darling. I know what you wish to take from me. Just know that no one has ever walked away from here alive or at least with their minds still intact. 

She scoffed at the arrogance that radiated from within the cave from the voice that spoke not from inside the cave but from inside her head. It did not matter to her she had to do this she had to face this monster that lurked within the cave for the sake of her sister who was lying on the cot at their tiny home fighting off the fever that was so fiercely claiming every part of her body and would soon claim her life, she needed the stone that lay within the cave what could heal anything or bring back loved ones, it was why so many people sought out this cave but none have ever been known to take the stone.

Come now darling doe I grow tired of waiting do you wish to take the stone or not! She would take that stone or die trying no matter what without her sister that one who had raised her all those years after their mother and father had passed away she would do this for her to repay her, for if her sister died she would have no reason to live. She braced her hands on the two daggers that were buckled to both sides of her hips as she slowly pulled them free and gripped the golden hilts so tight her finger turned white. She whispered a small prayer up to the mother above as she stalked into the cave, she was not scared of the death that lurked before her, as it welcomed her with open arms into the black abyss, no, she was most frightened of the afterlife if she were to end up damned for eternity or if she would find that peaceful bliss of nothingness and just be done with everything no longer existing.

Silly little girl you think those tiny blades can hurt me, you must be far more foolish than any other mortal that has come here to try and take the stone yet. 

“I do not care what you think about be demon, I will retrieve that stone and I will leave her with my life and save my sister.”  She snarled into the darkness

There was no light in the cave nor was there darkness it was just black. The color black it’s self is what lie before her and she glided both her blades across the walls until she had to choose left or right. She chose to stick to the left due to the fact that her right were her stronger fighting hand. She felt the presence then of death itself breathing down her neck, she felt the shiver shoot down her back could hear nothing but her beating heart pounding in her ears at the silence. So tell me girl do I frighten you yet. Do you realize you stand before a god were as you are nothing more than a bug waiting to be squashed. 

” You do not scare me. I am my own fear. I am the only person who can decided whether I live or die. Not you.” She tried to sound certain and unafraid but her voice had failed her as she cracked at the end.

She felt the laughter ripple around her as it filled her mind and the air around her like a damn of water had just exploded and was now pouring out to drown out everything in its path. So loud, the noise that filled her ears as the ringing filled her head then the blue light sparked to life. It floated around like a spirit in the night dancing on the wind that carried it. She lost the power to breath as she spotted the claw of black that was inches away from her its talons dripping with blood of a crimson red. The smell of iron and decaying flesh slammed into her noise she could not stop the heaving that started as she emptied the contents of her stomach all over the cave floor. Another blue spirit appeared and she seen the tail that was shaped like a dagger but it was bent at a weird angle like someone had broken it.

The two spirits danced around snaking their way up the beast body that stood a few couple of feet from her. Its fur was in clumps and patches and what wasn’t covered in fur was black and looked to be made like leather covered in scars and cuts. The monster’s chest was something out of a comic book or a nightmare it was a skeleton hollow and empty she could see straight through to the red unskin of the back the blue and purple vessels that did not pulse of beat nothing moved inside this monster. It was like its chest was a cage a prison it kept you in until you slowly died from only the mother knows what. She tried to rip her eyes away from the beast before she could see its head but it was too late. She could not look away it was like she was frozen in fear as the spirits danced high above her head showing her the face of the enemy she would die to tonight.

Its face was half fur and half leather on one side the face had a smile cut and stitched into a smile while the other half bared razor sharp teeth that were just piled in side its mouth like it all just came in at once. One eye held nothing but blackness and death but the other was of sky blue filled with what looked like sadness and regrets. She started into that one eye ignoring the blood that dripped from the black eye and the smile made of shards of razors, and the horns on top the demon’s head that were spiraled and bent at wrong angles, the ears that were missing parts. She started into that eye of sky blue and felt the crushing weight that hit her as she knew the color and the way that eye looked.

That eye was just like the pair her mother had the sky blue color that was as bright and beautiful as the summer sun on a hot day shredding away the chill of the spring and winter and the rain that covered the ground spreading joy and life throughout the land. She knew that eye because she stared into that eye every single day of her life. She felt it then the slip into madness and darkness that pulled her under in the sea of black. She looked at that smile again that was forced upon the beast just as she forced herself to smile every day since her parents death. The eye that was nothing but blackness were the eyes she stared out of every day not seeing the beauty that was lying around her. The flowers that her sister would always tend. The smile of the boy that she had yet to tell how she truly felt about him. The sky that she would never see again. Her eyes drifted to the chest that was hollow and held nothing inside, it was her chest where she no longer let her heart love she had casted everything out and would not let anything into her heart again nothing would make her feel that pain of losing a loved on again. The claws that dripped with blood were her own claws that she used to shred anything or anyone who tried to get near her.

This beast, this monster before her, the thing that was going to end her life was herself. She could not think or breathe, the screaming in her head had gone silent everything around her faded away into blackness as she once again was floating in that sea of nothingness.

 

I will finish this story in a second part until then stay tuned and check out some of the other post!

The Lantern of Souls: Part 3

spirit_wolf_by_felondog-d7hq6tg.jpgRavanah had once again made it to the top of a tree where she could scout out the rest of the land but she still had seen no sign of Lann or any of the others, so she decided it was time for her to start covering some ground before the wolves soon found her and not knowing what special powers they held terrified her to the point she was shaking but she had to try and stay calm moving for branch to branch this high up was not a time to be all out of sorts. The trees in this forest where thick and tangled more like a jungle than a forest if you asked her if only there were swinging vines that would make things easier nevertheless she would have to make this work, when she was younger her and her older brother would play in the trees night and day her mother thought they were more monkeys than children they even ended up camping in the trees a few nights after their father had built them a platform to hold them and their sleeping bags it was not a big tree house just a simple flat piece of wood attached to the tree but that was all they ever needed, maybe that was why she had decided to climb the tree when she was playing hide and seek in the woods and why she was now tangled in the maze of branches it was her safe place.

She had stopped for just a moment to catch her breath and to rest her arms from all the pull ups she had had to do jumping from branch to branch and after almost missing the last one she thought it was a well deserved one. She had not heard the howl of the wolves or the sound of crunching leaves in a while so she thought it would be okay to rest here until the crunching started but it was not the crunching of a slow stalking predator it was the crunching of the prey barreling through the forest below she was soon up on her feet jumping once again from branch to branch trying to catch up to who or what ever was making so much noise and she was shocked to see Lann running like an idiot as if he has never played hide and seek before, she tried very hard to contain the laugh that had slipped from her smile when she watched him trip and roll into a pile of leaves with the expression of shock all over his face. His head turned to her position in the trees staring at her like the thought had never even crossed his mind to climb a tree like she was some crazy lunatic.

“Hey stupid you know the key to hide and seek is to actually hide and be quite right not make as much noise as possible right or did your little brain already forget?” The smirk on her face was one she was very proud to show that was his karma for calling her all those pet names earlier.

“Well kitten I guess I had you wrong maybe I should call you monkey instead they way you are clinging to that tree for dear life.” The smirk on his face was full of smartass as he winked at her after.

“Keep it up with the pet names and I will not help you and you do know there are wolves out there right or are you trying to draw their attention to you?”

“Alright, alright I am sorry your highness will you help me? How did you even get up there the branches are too far up to jump and grab.”

“You have to run up the trunk and grab the lowest branch when you jump off use that momentum to reach the next, it is very simple actually but I guess I just have a bigger brain than you.”

“Okay well hang right there and let me try this”

Oh she was going to enjoy this very much as he started to run he misjudged the distance the step would take to get him running up the tree and ending up slamming face first into the tree. she showed on containment this time as she let her laugh breakthrough the night as Lann was cursing at the tree.

“Lann don’t run like you are going to turn sideways and walk up the tree all you are trying to do it get footing to move up the tree it is like you are climbing it just without hands and in a fast pace way.” Even though he teased her all the time she did feel some remorse for his pain he did promise to protect her after all.

She watched below as a fire was lit behind his eyes he was determined to do this and she found that a small part of her wanted him to succeed. Lann did as she had said and ran straight up the tree like he was climbing it with no hands, she was shocked he was doing it as he jumped just in time to grab the lowest branch and hauling himself up like it was a piece of cake. She could pull herself up as well but she did struggle just a tad bit it took her a few seconds to get fully on the branch where as Lann was on the branch in mere seconds then to the next until he was standing on the branch beside her.

“Okay my dear chimp, where did you learn to climb like that?”

“My brother taught me and we don’t have time for this we need to move before the wolves catch up to us I am sure they are already on their way here due to your careless running. Why were you just running in the first place?” She decided she would not give him the satisfaction of pushing her buttons, he could call her any pet name no matter how much she hated it she would not let him see her anger.

“To be honest I thought I could just outrun them and make it to the castle and lock myself inside.”

“That is a stupid idea did you even think about what if you could not outrun them then what would you do or what if you made it inside the castle but there was something else waiting on the inside?”

“Well my dear scaredy cat I was not thinking about that”

Ravanah rolled her eyes at his stupidity surely all boys aren’t as dumb as this one Eugeen looked like he at least had some common sense. They were now moving a fast as they could through the trees and she could now see the castle in the clearing ahead but she could see the wolves that everything else in this horrible world they were black covered in a blue mist their eyes glowed of blue along with their teeth claws and tail. If they weren’t super dangerous and ready to kill them all they looked beautiful with all their detailed engraving around their bodies she might even love to keep one as a pet if it were ever possible. They moved so fast how anyone could outrun these things it would be impossible they moved like cheetahs maybe even faster, but they were on a hunt for blood and it was Lann, hers, and the rest of their friends blood that they craved.

They had made it to the edge of the trees and the only way to the castle was to cross the clearing where the wolves were not sniffing around trying to find their trails it seems they had picked up one when one of them raised their head to the moon and let out a death cry howl it was a sicking howl one that was distorted like a tortured soul then the packed like a flash of blue lightening they ran into the distance now would be their chance to escape. She turned to tell Lann the plan but maybe he was not as dumb as she thought because it seems as if he had the same idea but he was breaking a couple of tree limbs they were pretty thick and it looked like it took a lot of work f0r him to break it judging by the sweat that rolled down his forehead and his slightly heavy breathing he handed her one of the branches and clasped her hand around it and looked into her eyes.

“If things go bad we are going to have to fight and all we have are these branches so if it comes to that I want you to empty your mind and you heart of thoughts and feelings you need to be empty of everything you need to only see life or death not the wolf in front of you just your life or its.”

Her hands trembled as a weight started to press down on her chest the world started to spin, air she needed air, she knew what this was all too well, another panic attack, she had many of these before tonight and she hated them she used to take her medication for them but had recently stopped when they seemed to not be happening any more but tonight on the worst night possible to have one. Lann grab both sides of her face and looked deep into her wild eyes that were scream and begging to be freed from this place.

“Rava I only just met you but I know you can do this okay I will be right beside you. I will not let you die I made a promise and I never break my promises. Now my little chimp I need you to take some slow breaths and calm down look at me at my eyes not at any thing else just at me.”

She did as he said and looked at nothing but him trying to suck down air into her lungs in a steady pattern but was still more wheezing it in and out in a frantic pattern but she could see it in his eyes again, hope, hope that she would live through tonight and return to her body and to her friends and family again. Something just came over her like the heat of the moment the fact that she might die she just crushed her face against Lann’s his lips for someone who had been bodiless for so long had such soft lips but before she let herself get in too deep she pulled away shocked by what she had done and the look on Lann’s face was one of shock and smugness.

“I uhhhh. .  I only did that to get my mind off of things sorry it had to be you but Eugeen wasn’t around so I had no choice.” What an idiot she thought that was the dumbest excuse she could have ever made.

“Whatever you have to tell yourself kitten.” He gave her one of his flashy crooked grin that made her want to punch him in the face.

They had wasted quite a bit of time so now was time for them to make their move Lann jumped down first and waited a second for her to do the same he flashed her another look of assurance and off they went running like a bunch of idiots she thought. Why could she not have ran into Kyamie surely she would have a better plan than this, her heart was racing her eyes darting back and forth across the ground trying to keep an eye out for any of the wolf spirits but it was no use because they came out of nowhere as she watched on pounce on Lann she let out a scream as she race toward him all she could see was the blue and black fur on top of him and before she knew what she was doing she raised the branch high over her head and brought it down straight on the wolf’s back she heard a crack and the sound of an animal that was in so much pain she could not help but to cry as she thought about all the pain she was putting this poor thing in even if it was trying to kill her. Lann crawled out from under the beast as it rolled on to its side like it was trying to make the pain go away she trembled at the sound the wolf was making until Lann put his branch through its heart saving it from the pain. She did not have time to think anymore about the pain her had caused to poor wolf  as Lann grabbed hold of her hand and forced her to keep moving behind him, faster they would have to move faster before the others came for them, she knew that they had heard the deadly sickened cry from the one they had just killed.

She felt it before she seen it as the large massive pain shot through her back she felt her shirt being ripped into shreds as the cool night air hit the scars on her back that now dripped with blood her was knocked to the ground and curled her body up tight into a ball waiting for the death blow to hit her, but it never came instead she peeked her eyes open as the sounds of something that no longer sounded like an animal or human. Lann had the branch in hand and was swinging it like a crazy caveman at the beast before them but it had no effect he was only making it angry, as the beast lifted up its claw and struck the branch it splintered into pieces she watched in horror as Lann dropped to his knees hold his hand where a piece of branch had now pierced through the top of it. He scooted back to where she lay gave her a look of happiness and reassurance as he threw her body of hers to keep her protected for a little longer she knew death was upon her as she felt a large crushing weight come down on her.

 

 

 

 

The Lantern of Souls: Scarystory Part 1

68c13caffeb73b390ac16cad96dfdf72.jpg

 

Ravanah had been running for so long but still had no clue where she was even heading and tonight on the coldest night of November without a coat running through these thick woods with just the moon to light her way what an idiot she was. Why did she even let herself get talked into this stupid game of hide and seek tag she had no idea the boys had talked her into it but she guessed that is what she got for always hanging out like on of the guys. They had all agreed to come to this patch of woods for an end of the year camping trip just on the outskirts of Sky’s house where they built a warm fire oh what she would kill to be next to that fire right now but first she must find a spot to hide or she would end up being the seeker next. The tree next to her looks like it might be able to hold her weight if she tried to climb it but that is easier said than done as she thought she might as well get this over with.

Ravanah grabbed the branch closest to the ground and dragged herself up on the branch once she was perched upon the branch like an owl she then made her way up the next three branches where she wedged herself in between the space where the tree trunk split and made herself comfortable as she could. She guess this would do for now the tree limbs and being in between the trunks kept the chill in the night air away but she still wish she would have brought her jacket then again she also did not think that she would be galavanting through the woods like a freaking prancing deer. It was really quite though which she thought was very weird there should be at least crickets or the leaves that covered the ground should be rustling but still she couldn’t hear any of it as if she had become deaf but her eyes caught the light over the rest of the tree tops.

Ravanah climbed high in the tree to get a better look at what that bright light was when a darkness flew over her head and the next thing she knew she was falling out of the tree and to the ground when the darkness consumed her. It was when she awoke that she was most terrified there was a faint blue tint color but that was all she could see and she could feel the swaying motion as if she were on a boat at sea.

It took a few minutes fro her to regain consciousness but she was still trying to asses whether or not she was dead or just dreaming because last thing she remembered was being in the tree or maybe falling from the tree and what was that noise like singing or humming. She knew the song it was from a videogame that Aeroe had played a couple of weeks ago if she could just remember the words to it. Go something, she had sung it for like a whole week straight but yet she still could not think of it until it came rushing at her like a train at full speed she waited for the right moment to get in sync with the humming she was hearing.

“Go tell aunt Rhody, Go tell aunt Rhody, Go Tell Aunt Rhody, That everybody’s dead. I was raised in a deep, dark hole, A prisoner with no parole, They locked me up and took my soul,
Ashamed of what they’d made.” That was all she could remember though.

“Hello? Is there someone else there?” Whispered a voice from the darkness it was deep but as smooth as silk it wasn’t raspy like sky’s voice.

“Yes? I am here but who am I speaking to?” She was not sure talking to the dark was a good idea but she really had no other choice here.

“I am a soul that has been taken from their body just as you have although I have been here for a long time whereas you my doe eyed deer have just arrived.” The voice was coming closer now and the humming was becoming louder with every heavy breath she sucked down into my deflating lungs.

She tried to squint into the dark blue void but the blue started to grow brighter and then a blue and white silhouette of a man she did not know came walking toward her the right side of his hair was shaven but the top of his hair was laid over to left where it dropped down and caressed his jaw line and his eyes looked bright and the smile he kept flashing her was soft and warming and it always tended to curve to the right side a little more than the left but his teeth looked like they could sparkle but the clothes he wore looked a little worn out he wore a shirt that look like it was made of flannel and his pants judging by the dark exterior look like they might have been black but it was the bracelet on his arm that held her focus the most it was made of leather that had rings of metal around it.

“what do you mean my soul has been taken?  Is that even possible?  Where are we any ways how did we end up here?” Her voice started to tremble as the thoughts raced through her mind about everything the young man had just told her how could this happen to her gaze started a dart around the room as if trying to find a way out of this nightmare.The young man step closer to her but every time he took one step she would take two more back.
” I am not here to hurt you I am here to only help my name is Lann. You do not need to fear me as for where we are we are being held in lantern of the soul reaper she wanders through the night praying on the young ones who get lost in the woods but soon we will be returned to her mansion where we will wait in our cages until she grows bored of our company and sells us to the demons of the night and unless you are able to return to your body before sunrise you will never be allowed to return to the land of the living. We can see the land of the living but we cannot interact we are on different planes as if we were looking through a one way mirror. So my dear doe eyed girl I suggest you stop best in so many questions and get to helping me with the answers unless you want to stay in this state.”

How those eyes seemed so bright before now seemed to be black as night as her heart raced he led her to the blue light but it was not a light she was looking out of it was glass and the light was behind her but through the glass she could see the ground beneath her moving by the woods she just ran through passing before her eyes she was in fact in the lantern of the soul reaper and her only way out was to trust a boy who look like he’d just been kicked out of rock concert for being too boring.If she weren’t so scared for her long she would be laughing right now growing up with two older brothers and having only a group of guys for friends she had heard many of these scary stories but she did not think that one of them would actually be true end of this one was true did that mean the others were too. She closed her eyes and prayed to the mother to save her before the darkness ate her.

I felt like writing something a little dark and kinda scary or soon it will be.
