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.
