I was in the middle of searching the
T.V. for a decent show when I heard the front door open and
close. Erik came walking into the living room as silent as
"How did It go? Did you give the
papers to Becca?" I asked looking over the back of the
"Fine, and yes I did." He said
taking a seat next to me. "What are you watching?" He Looked at
"Nothing, there isn't anything one."
Said flicking through the channels.
"Can I look?" He asked holding out
his hand for the remote.
"Sure knock yourself out." I said
handing over the clicker. He wouldn't find anything anyway so
what was the sense in arguing. After about fifteen minutes of
looking through the shows he was still going. He must be
determined. Another ten minutes passed and he was starting to
"Frustrated?" I asked looking at him
with a mocking smile.
"No." he said, his voice flat. But I
could see impatience starting to show in his eyes.
"I think your lying." It was fun
messing with him. He acts just like a child sometimes.
"And I think your being
"awww, is someone starting to get
angry?" I asked in a baby voice.
"Would you just shut-it I'm trying
to find something to watch."
"Erik, you do realize that you've
been through the list of channels at least twice, I don't think
that something new is going to pop up out of nowhere." I said
dumbfounded by his persistence.
" Forget it, I give up there's
nothing on." He said throwing the remote on the floor. I stood
up, stretched and started towards the kitchen.
"Want anything to eat?" I asked
"That's it?" I was hoping that the
whole tomato thing was joke but I guess not.
"Okay then." I walked through the
kitchen arch and grabbed a tomato off the counter. I also picked
up an apple that way I could have a quick snack and head off to
bed. I walked into the living room and chucked the tomato at his
head. Even though his eyes where closed he still managed to catch
it with ease.
"I'm heading to bed. Make sure you
turn out the lights before you do. Okay?"
"Yeah, yeah, goodnight."
I walked into my room and changed
into a pair of shorts and an old shirt. Getting under the covers
I laid my head down and quickly fell to sleep.
I opened my eyes to meet darkness. I
looked all around and saw nothing. Suddenly something started to
appear. I took a good look and came face to face with
"Erik? Where are we?" I asked as I
walked up to him. His face was clouded with darkness. "Erik?"What
was wrong with him? Why wouldn't he answer? He finally lifted his
head and I looked into unfamiliar eyes. Blood… They were the
color of blood. A color I knew all too well. This wasn't the
person I knew. "Who are you?" I asked taking steps
"What? You don't recognize me Kayla?
It's me, Erik." His voice was a twisted. Sinister almost. I
stumbled a little, turned around and then ran. That's all I could
do was run. I turned my head back to see if he had fallowed but
there was nothing. I suddenly bumped into something and stumbled
"Kayla? Are you okay?" I looked up
to meet eyes. Erik's. Well at least they're the ones I remember.
He then suddenly grabbed me and pulled me into an unbreakable
"Let go of me! Let go!" I screamed,
and I screamed but he wouldn't loosen his grip. Light started to
cloud my vision. I opened my eyes and saw two familiar figures
floating above me. "Mom? Dad? But how…" Tears started to roll
down my cheeks. "Is that really you?"
"How could you." They spoke at the
"We sacrificed our lives for you to
live and this is how you repay us!" My father spoke.
"I don't understand, what are you
saying?" I asked still struggling in Erik's grip.
"You repay us by speaking to this
demon, He is the same kind of person that killed us! Your
family!" My mother said.
"No! He's different! He protected
me!" I screamed
"Wrong. You don't deserve our
prayers." They spoke at the same time and started to fade.
"No! don't go!" I said trying to
I had almost forgot that Erik had me
in a death grip. But he finally started to pull away but still
griped me tightly around the shoulders.
"Let. Me. Go." I said starting to
get sick of this.
"Never." I looked into his eyes and
was met with the sickening color of blood.
