Springtrapped

By CaptainFluffybuns

Horror

Warning: Gets bloody at the end

Fear. That was all he ever felt now. He sat against the wall, thinking. Yes, thinking. Machines didn’t have minds of their own. Or at least, most of them didn’t. Sometimes he felt like his mind wasn’t really his own anymore. Any moment now. Of course, it came-

“...Listen to me…”

He shook his head. “No… not this time…”

“...do as I say…”

“NO!”

“Why do you have to do this every time?”

An electric shock went through his body, and soon he stood up, but not with his consent. His movements weren’t his own now. They belonged to the entity taking residence within him. He sighed as his body was piloted through Fazbear’s Fright. He hated the place. It was shameful the way the staff displayed the relics from the old locations as a horror attraction. Many of those things had brought joy to children, and didn’t deserve to be portrayed as scary. He looked at the exposed wires. They were a huge threat, but why didn’t the company take care of that already? He didn’t fix it because his hands were too big and clumsy. He heard a few hissing noises in the hallway, those hisses belonged to the phantoms no doubt. They were hissing because they hated him. No… it wasn’t him they hated. It was the thing inside of him that they hated. 

Why did HE have to go through this? He never hurt anyone! Or at least not on purpose, he thought to himself, thinking of the spring lock. He was forever trapped with this other being. He wasn’t his own entity now. He was a monster. A puppet. A tool. He rarely got to control his own actions anymore. His eye twitched as a horrible squelching noise came from his torso. Even though he was a machine, he could feel the corpse inside of him as it continued to decay. It was disgusting. He was just a vessel now. No one loved him anymore. He remembered the day he was discovered in the safe room. In truth, he had WANTED to say locked up for obvious reasons. He wanted to be away from people in order to avoid hurting them, or worse- murdering them. He never wanted to murder anybody. It was all the other being’s doing. All of it. “Why do you do this to me?”

“Because I can, and there’s nothing you can do about it.”

“I hate you.”

“I know you do.”

“You’re disgusting.”

“Ah ah ah~ it looks like we’re almost to the office so no more talking.” 

Another electric shock went through him, and he was unable to speak. A voice came out of his maw, and it wasn’t his. “That’s better.” It was weird hearing the other one speak this way. Normally he only heard him in his head. “You’re a monster”, he thought. “Yes I am. We’re going to get that guard tonight.”

“You mean YOU are going to get the guard.”

“Precisely.”

He could do nothing as his body went down the hallway and stopped at the large window that looked into the office. There was the guard, who was shivering with fear as he stared at him. He wanted to comfort the guard in some way, maybe even hug him, but he couldn’t. He wasn’t a bad guy at all, the other entity just forced him to be one. The other entity… the killer… the one who started it all. And now he was stuck with him for good, providing homage for his sick, twisted soul. Sometimes the soul’s influence was so great, that on a few occasions he felt twisted himself. Insane. “Soon you’ll be just like me… a killer”, the other whispered in a hissing voice.

“NO! NEVER!”

“Oh yes you will. You have to do what I say remember?”

His body went by the doorway and peeked into the office. He looked at the guard.

“No… please… not this… anything but this…”

The guard pulled up the maintenance panel and his body lurched forward, slinking into the office. The moment the guard put away the panel, his body grabbed the guard, and began to rip them apart, the one controlling him roaring with laughter. And he couldn’t stop it. Blood and organs spilled everywhere, the guard’s screams echoing through the attraction. He wanted to close his eyes so he didn’t have to see it, but of course he was unable to. The guard’s mutilated corpse just sat in the chair, barely looking like the guard anymore. The arms and legs were torn off, and were scattered about the office. The most damage was done around the facial area. His chest was torn open, the inside all ripped up. The killer was still laughing with sadistic glee. He knew it would happen eventually. “Do you like what you see my little pet? This is what you do now. The guard died at your hands. You’re a killer just like me.”

This was it. he was trapped. No, he wasn’t just trapped. He was…

Springtrapped.

Dina Husseini: I loved this story. It was so great that I did not expect it to be this awesome. I swear to you this deserves more than just 5 stars. Beyond amazing. Kept me wanting more and I felt exactly like Emma felt while reading. Although in the beginning I did not expect anything to happen. Then, when som...

shadowmaven: At first, the word "Dagon" threw me, making me think that this was going to be a story based on one of Lovecraft's, and was pleasantly surprised--no, make that thrilled--when it wasn't (honestly, I like your mythos more). Your writing is so lyrical, deftly capturing this tiny village and the rela...

Deleted User: This is a very clever story in the style of 19th century (and turn of the century) Gothic writing, very reminiscent of Stevenson's The Body Snatchers or even of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (less so of Frankenstein itself, since the author is more minimalist than Shelley's florid, Romantic rhetoric). ...

Bradley Darewood: I really really really liked this. I just voted for you!The voice is flawless-- I can't write men as well as you do and I have a penis. Maybe I'm narcissistic but I particularly enjoyed the moment where he muses about how artists would do better in such a solitary job. But my favorite moment ...

Kiz16: After a truly shocking start to the story, I found the style and content slowed down as the author introduced a varied group of characters who I thought were fleshed out very well. After a slow couple of chapters, I found this story difficult to leave with the tension growing within the house. Yo...

elssxa: I love everything about this story. I want more...more...more. This author is superb. I am fascinated by his amazing work. I give him five stars.

Deleted User: (A review in progress). I like this. It's sparse, gritty and atmospheric - reminiscent of the classic Golden Age of American detective fiction of the Thirties. I've only read the beginning, but I'll definitely be back. This writer knows their stuff and has done their homework on detective work. T...

Sarah_M_G: This story was truly gripping from start to finish. The way the author used Scottish dialect throughout the novel really helped to put you in he in the place where it was all happening. Every character was well described and thought out. How they all fitted together really worked and loved how t...

skippybash12: This story has engaging characters that you care about and a plot that is unpredictable and exciting. It is well written with a believable voice. Great weekend escape and if there was a sequel available I would buy it today -

Shifa Gohar: this book is my first on inkitt and I love it thoroughly...but i guess this is not the end. The characters were amazing the plot too. At times it scared me more than a horror movie would. Love the plot something i had not read in a while.
