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.

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...

Bboyjoon: A brilliant but unsettling story about 5 murders committed by a serial killer. This novel scared me a little bit and I have to commend you for being able to do that. I wanted to know if you’ve actually met a serial killer before. I mean the way you’ve described the mind of a psychopath is extreme...

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...

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...

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.

Angel S. Adames Corraliza: Sensational! As a fan of superheroes, I have to say, you have a real winner of a story so far. I like that you made Allison a Wonder Woman expy, but kept her likable and relate-able in this first chapter. You showed us the Mother while also glancing at the Superhero, which I think is important to...
