"Lea! What has gotten into you?!"

I was sitting in the principal's office for "me" kicking the walls wherever I go. I sighed *in my head* and then I was forced to say,

"I'm a bad kid now and your the worst so-" I started, my mind racing to stop. But there was no way. I couldn't control it. The words spewed out and I couldn't stop no matter how hard I tried.

"LEA! You are suspended for three days! This attitude is not allowed!" The principal retorted, his face turning bright red.

"Hey! Ugly beet red is your color!" I- Correction ESOV made me say it. 

Oh lord, I was in trouble now. I *in my head AGAIN* screamed.


Finally I guess the ESOV had enough of the screaming, and they let me walk out to the car. Uh oh.. My mom and dad were out there. I was gonna end up saying something HORRIBLE.

I opened the car door and slammed it behind me. My dad looked shocked. My mom was sad. I *ESOV* smirked and said, "That principal dude is SUCH a hot head! You could throw him in a bucket of ice and his face would still be steaming! And he is SO annoying too!" Oh no... I was gonna either get the YOU ARE GROUNDED or the Lea honey is everything ok?

"Look. Lea, this isn't you. What's going on in that head?" My dad asked. I was such a disappointment, because of ESOV... He looked sincerely concerned. Then he asked if we should see a mental doctor. I wanted to speak. I tried so hard to finally something happened. I broke away. Just for a moment. Strong emotions! That was it! Each time someone felt a strong emotion for me, I broke away! I managed to say,

"Dad! Help! Help me please! I can't control it! The ESOV- They're in my head! HELPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

My mom rolled her eyes. "Stop watching your father's movies. And anyways, isn't ESOV fake??" She asked me.

The strong emotions had stopped. And I was once again belonging to the ESOV. I was a slave, doing the dirty work and being ridiculed, being made say and do things. I sighed in my head. What would happen next?
