Friends

I… I never intended for all this madness…

All I was doing was giving them a second chance at living…

And I didn't want to be alone…

I wanted friends.

I never expected them to be so violent and so vengeful…

I only made things worse.

I feel as if it's all my fault that all those innocent guards died…

If I hadn't done it, then they would have never killed them…

But… I don't have a clean slate either…

I too have killed.

I too feel the need for vengance…

I feel anger.

So much anger.

Anger that can only be soothed by the sound of the box's music…

Without it I become violent.

I remember when I was still a child…

But I was an unhappy child…

I would often cry…

I clearly remember my last moments…

I was standing in front of an older location…

And I was crying.

I heard a car.

A man stepped out, and asked me what was wrong.

I could tell something was not right about this man.

He scared me.

So I told him to go away and leave me alone.

He did not leave.

Instead, he stepped closer.

He grinned a grin that would scare off even the bravest of people.

He pulled out a shiny blood-stained knife…

I saw what he was doing, and I began to cry harder.

I shouted for help, but he covered my mouth with his hand.

And then he stabbed me.

Again and again he stabbed me…

Then he plunged that knife right through my heart, laughing with sadistic glee.

I fell to the ground, feeling my life slowly fade away.

And then the man left me for dead.

And so later my soul became this monstrosity…

My mask bears the markings of my tears…

And those tear marks are purple, just like the one who slaughtered me…

I have a wide, permenant smile that disguises my true feelings…

Anger… hatred… sadness.

So now here I lie curled up in my present box…

My only comfort being the other much smaller box of music.

It's the only thing that can make me calm now.

It seems as if a part of me is actually waiting for the music to stop.

Since without it my anger spikes, and I go on a rampage.

And during it, I always go after, and murder the night guard.

And killing them seems to somehow satisfy my rage…

And I feel bad for it.

If it's not me that gets them, then one of my "friends" does.

I too was a child once, just like them.

So young and innocent was I, just like them.

I had a name, just like them.

But I am no longer that child…

I am…

A puppet.

Colin Milroy: To begin, I don't think that the first review of this story was fair at all. Based on the popularity of this story, I would say the one-star review hasn't done much harm, but I still felt the need to address it. Now I will do my best to be constructive.I liked the concept of this story. I found i...

Silver: Its a very good story you have here. Felicity´s ability is interesting and original, I love it. The setting of a hostpital was a good choice, especially since we get the scene with the other interns, gives it a very real feel. There wasnt much plot for me to rate, so I´ll update as the story prog...

cyaniderush: The story was gripping. The story flowed from one sentence to another that I did not even realize how much and how long I had been reading. There were run-on sentences in which the author used commas instead of semi-colons, but the meaning of the sentence was not lost. All in all, I enjoyed this ...

: This is a very interesting book - mostly because the heroine is quite charming and well rounded, and has very real issues to manage in her life. Most of all,. I loved the view inside of the life of a South Asian girl/woman, the emotional self-talk, the customs and preferences, the expectations a...

precious_passenger: I've read this story on Fanfiction.net and I'm so happy to see this here. It's one of my favorite stories about Supernatural fandom. Little Dean is adorable in here :) Also, I voted for your story. Us Supernatural fans have to look out for each other, right? :D

Dimplz: Severitus stories (Snape is Harry's Father/Guardian/Mentor) are a staple in the fandom and the quality of these stories vary wildly.. This was an absolute gem to read. The characters were excellently written and the story was very heartfelt.

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!

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...

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.

Lacey Schmidt: The Trouble with Super is that you can't stop reading it. Mr. Barrett's characters are all to easy to relate to even if you don't have a super quirk of your own, and their plight is both heart-rendingly funny and heart-warmingly sad at the same time. It's a bit like Office Space meets the Matri...

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 ...
