I'm Free

By Renate

Horror / Drama

I'm Free

I do not own Soul Eater, nor do I own the cover image.


I let the tangy metallic taste fill my mouth, the blood on my arm disappears before my eyes.

My teeth turn red, just like my hair. I bet it's beautiful, my mouth matches my hair and eyes.

Maybe I'll ask you how it looks.

But you won't think it's pretty, will you?

You're underground. Six feet underground.

Maybe that's why my mouth is red.

Do you think it's pretty?

What's your favorite color again?

It wasn't red.

Was it?

I'm forgetting you.

I don't want to forget you.

Please come back.

Matt, please tell me if it's pretty or not. I want to know.

Do you think I'm pretty?

Because I think you are.

Especially your blood.

Did you love me, Matt?

Because I love you.

But I loved your blood the most.

It must taste amazing...

Like strawberry syrup...


You are gorgeous.

I'm forgetting what you look like.

I'm forgetting you.

So gorgeous.

I'm losing it.

Gorgeous as BLOOD.

I need you.

I don't have much control left.

Matt, have you ever tried to fly?

I think I will.

When I fly, I can catch the birds.

I've always wondered how their blood tastes.

I'll bet it tastes good.


I wonder how it feels to fly.

Is it fun?

Is it hard?

Is it worth the risk?

Matt, I don't want to hurt anyone..

I'm scared I will.

The wind pushing you forward or backwards, up or down.

It's the wind's decision whether I fly or not.

Should I try?

The bird blood with taste amazing.

I want all of it.

Every. Last. Drop.

I'm going to jump, Matt.

I'm already at the edge of the roof.

You remember the roof.

There's Maka, and Soul. Oh, Blackstar and Tsubaki. Kid, Liz, and Patti too.

The small people below are yelling at me not to fly.

They don't me to.


Maka's telling me it isn't worth it.

She hasn't seen what I've been doing to myself recently to make sure I don't attack her, or Soul, or Blackstar, or Tsubaki, or Kid, or Liz, or Patti.

I'm going to fly.


I'm flying. I'm flying through the air.

Right towards the concrete.

I wonder how my blood will look on the concrete.

Would it look pretty?

Hey Maka, is my blood pretty on the ground?

Matching my hair and eyes?

I'm sorry.

I'm sorry Maka, Soul, Blackstar, Kid, Liz, Patti.

But now you're safe.

And I'm free.

Sandra Estrada: I loved every minute of it and I thank my lucky stars that brought me to the story, it's been a whirlwind of emotions, plot twist after plot twist but I never got tired of them. Abby and Kade's story is a hard one to understand but once you're submerged in their story and love, you can't help but...

Janaki Sundararaman: The frame of the story has a beautiful structure on which the narration is spun with twists and turns tolook forward with lots of expectations about the coming chapters.There are many characters in the story line,all woven into intricate style to speak the story in its own way.The protagonist is ...

Tanya Daigle Rusheon: This book is a long and twisty tale full of sweet romance, adorable fluff, anxiousness, trust issues, mind games, things that don't make sense until suddenly they do, heartache and reconciliation just when you need it the most. If that all sounds a bit vague, it's because I really don't want to s...

Ben Gauger: Kudos to Bryan Laesch, author of Remnants of Chaos:Chaotic Omens for his use of the Gothic style of writing and in addition the footnotes and endnotes at the end of each chapter, a welcome accompaniment to be sure, though his use of grammar could use a little improving, but his use of punctuation...

Deleted User: I've only read so far to the first two chapters, but I already get that thick, underlying meaning of dark romance--which is good, because it sets the tone, with a hint of danger. However, some parts of the writing did come across as a bit dull, and I personally think that starting a second chapte...

aeratheninja: Interestingly enough, this story touches on different psychological states and was very informing, on top of being a solid story. Although somewhat predictable, I thoroughly enjoyed reading this; I could feel the fear and the frustration of the characters, and was happy when they were happy.Even ...

cicheah: Very well-knit story which sustains one's interest from beginning to end. Most enjoyable and a pleasure to read.

Kastril Nomenclature: 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). ...

Ben Gauger: Kudos go to Liz Aguilar, author of To Have And to Hold a fast-paced, gripping, adrenaline rush from start to finish, one of perhaps the finest pieces of writing I've ever read, in particular because of its' telenovela-like feel, May she continually find success as an author. Bravo my dear, bravo!
