"Do you want to be my friend?" the creepy doll with the cracked face said, smiling. Marta gasps for air as she suddenly wakes up from the horrible nightmare she had. These days, she always had terrifying dreams about the doll, drilling through her mind over and over again with the same question. That day, she went to school. Coincidentally, a foreign exchange student was presented in her homeroom, with a face that resembled someone from somewhere far inside her mind. For no reason at all, she kept pondering about Gisela, the new girl. Something about her just wasn't right, but Marta could not remember. When school ended, Marta went to her usual place where her parents picked her up to go home. While she was waiting, she felt someone tap her shoulder. Marta looked, but was sure that no one was around her. She became confused and scared, and doubted that her parents were going to come. Once more, the tap came and this time, somewhere below her shoulder. Quickly, she turned around and looked down. Relieved, she saw a small child, and asked, "What's wrong? Where is your mom and dad?" The kid did not talk, but looked terrified. That's when it hit her. Just seeing his expression, she could remember, the someone she couldn't remember. She remembered the girl behind the doll in her dreams, telling her to run. To run as far away as possible, and never come back. When Marta's focus came back, she realized the kid was holding the doll with the cracked face facing down, which slowly rotated to Marta's view. She recognized those eyes. Those lonely yet chilling eyes, crying a tear of blood, and asking, "Do you want to be my friend?"
