False Smile

False Smile

There I lay, curled up inside the giant present box listening to the steady tune of the other smaller box's music. I didn't know why it calmed me down so much, but I didn't exactly care. All I cared about was that kept me happy. Well not actually happy, just relaxed. I was never really happy anymore.

There never really was a whole lot to do in the prize corner but sit around in my box. Well, once in a while I'd poke my head out of the box to see if anyone else is in the room. Speaking of that- I poked my head out just enough to see, and nope. I was still alone in here. I sighed and went back down. This night seemed to be taking forever!

Click! The music stopped, and I began to rise from my box. The only thing that could possibly pacify me was no longer present. By thing, I mean the music. That meant it was time. Time for me to go on another rampage. I climbed out of the box and stumbled onto the floor, due to my body lacking feet. I clenched my three-fingered fists, and soon I began to levitate off the floor. It wasn't long before I was upright, just inches off the ground. I floated out of the room, and the music box began to play Pop! Goes the Weasel.

As I traversed the building, I could see my reflection on the floor. I looked down at it, and started at the mask that was my face. I hated it. Why? The large, gaping smile. I hated that smile. It hid my true feelings. Anger. Sadness. Frustration. And yet I smile. I can't stop smiling. That false smile sits there and mocks me in my reflection. And then there's the marks of my tears, colored purple just like that man who killed me.

As I passed through, the others immediately got out of my way, since they knew better than to be in my path when I'm like this. I was almost there. When I got there, I would kill the guard. Murdering them helps with my anger. But afterwards, I have only a little bit of guilt for it.

There I was, in the hallway in front of the office. The guard turned on the flashlight, and I quickly moved aside so he wouldn't see me. When he turned it back off, I went back to the middle of the hall. I reared back then launched myself through the doorway, my arms outstretched letting out a scream.

The guard jumped out of the way, picked up the flashlight, and actually began to hit me with it yelling curse words from fright. I grabbed it then flung it across the room, it breaking upon impact wih the wall. The guard reached for the swivel chair, but I grabbed him by the throat and lifted him up. Though my arms and fingers were skinny, I lifted him with great ease. I put my other hand on his throat and started shaking him back and forth. I was about to snap his neck, but the bells signifying the end of his shift rang through the building first. I sighed and dropped him on the floor. "You win… this time."

I levitated out of there and back to my box, and sat down in it. His shift ended, and now it was time for MY shift to start. All I really did was give out prizes to a bunch of bratty little kids that punch and kick me if I don't give them the prize they wanted. I heard the doors of the place unlock, and the noise of kids running into the building. "Time for another day of Hell…"

AnnaLucia: This fanfiction has an amazing plot. It's very different from the books, yet the author still managed to keep the personalities the characters had in the books. Your Alec and Magnus still are themselves, even though you created a different plot where Bane had to seduce Lightwood to get informati...

ank1983: I really enjoyed this story and I read through it quickly. I found it very entertaining and some of your scenes were very well written and descriptive. Every time a chapter ended I couldn't wait to start the next chapter. What girl hasn't fantasized over a cute teacher at school?! The story did...

dd1226: I love reading about other countries and I think this story about Cambodia after Polpot creates awareness of the tragedy that happened there and the actions of the U.N. to hold elections. The heroine of the story is easy to relate to, a modern, middleaged woman looking for an adventure, wanting t...

Animeviewer: It is one of the best stories I've ever read. This story will have you riding a roller coaster of emotions and nearly dying to know what happens next.You will get very attached to the characters and in my case I relate well with some of their very traumatic or emotional experiences, Just Juliet f...

RedX9: I would love it if you would show how she is the bottom of the class. A paragraph alone isn't enough to show this.If she was such a screw up, how did she pass and graduate from the class. Are her teachers this lax that they would allow a screw up to graduate?I didn't understand the schooling syst...

dapharoah69: I gotta hand it to you. This was a great read from start to finish. I am a big fan of witches, thanks to Anne Rice. The characters really reeled me in from the very first few chapters. You make reading fun.

mrh: This interesting take on the Harry Potter series fascinated me from line one on. I am in love with this tale and its characters and cannot wait to read the next chapter. I look forward to more soon.When can I expect the next chapter? I am so excited to read it!

Bella_Lee_Taylor: the plot of the story is good and I can't wait to read the second book, but you need to check your grammar because as I was reading there were were important parts of the story some of the spelling and grammar were out of place and the way you you worded things can be better but I can see that th...

littlebite22: This made me think. About the world around me, about what I think of others. We rarely get to see or hear what others think, and this is such a great example of not judging a book by its cover. Also very well written.

Sammi Chan: THIS WAS AMAZING!!! My favorite part of this story was the slow build of Merlin and Arthur's relationship. Their relationship was rlly nicely fleshed out and so good :) The way that you handled the magic reveal was super enjoyable. I rlly liked the switching POVs. Good!Mordred was cute and I'm rl...

Sandra Leigh: Sadly, the book left me wanting more. There are only 5 chapters and I want more! It is easily as good as The White Queen and The Other Boleyn Girl. I cannot wait for this one to be finished.

FreakyPoet: I found this story well written and extremely cute. I like how the emotional roller coaster, otherwise know as love, was done here. it was very believable that these two characters would deny, agonize, then come to except their feelings the way that they did. I enjoyed it very much, thank you ...
