"So how have you been since our...last session, you feel a little better?" My therapist asked. I responded.

"Have you ever felt like someone is watching you?" He then looked confused. He then asked,

"Matthew, are you alright? Is it the medication? Because if it is I could take you off it."

"No, its not the medication, its something else. Its standing there." I said as I pointed in the corner. He looked in the corner with a look of concern and confusion on his face. He then looked at me saying,

"Are you feeling alright Matthew?" I replied,

"I'm never alright, and I have told you this many times. When are you gonna take the hint." I sighed.

"I'm sorry, I know you're just trying to do your job. Its just been a little rough these past couple days. I had an awful dream." He then replied.

"WHAT IN THE FUCK ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT!! I wanted a better life, but I didn't want this! The deals off! You can take your shitty deal and shove it up your a-" before I could finish I was lifted in the air and pinned to the wall behind me. Struggling to move and breath, I could feel my chest being pressed down by an abnormal force. Then the voice spoke.

"If you wish not to be granted the wishes I bestow upon you, Then you shall suffer the consequences of the happiness you will not be gifted. YOU SHALL KNOW TRUE SUFFERING" my reflection then turned to the hideous creature I saw before, and spoke in the same voice, saying,
