A year has already passed ever since my grand ma died, never really knew how she died, all I’ve been told was she had cancer… but it’s not the truth, I know it isn’t, I mean she was completely fine, she was in great health no heart diseases, not any symptoms of what all other elders get growing old. I was banned from seeing her three days before she died but I’m pretty sure that a cancer symptom starts showing months before its time. She was strange, growing up with her raising me I’d know, she talked a lot to herself in a weird way never really understood it, and sometimes she would just lock herself in her room and the lights would go off around the whole house and when she’s back out they are on, quite a weird old lady but that never really mattered to me. My parents died in a car accident when I was 9 months old I never really knew them, but my aunt Naomi would always talk about them, they seemed nice and quite the fun couple you’d want as your parents, metal heads and sky divers….. Damn definitely awesome. My aunt was with them in the car accident she was 18 as well, she told me about how the glass shattered and one slashed into her she even showed me her scar, it looked deep but not fatal, when it came to my parents she wouldn’t tell me anything, she didn’t want me to feel pain, but I overheard her once telling my grand ma that she still gets nightmares of that night, watching a thin pipe drive through the glass and into her sister’s chest was the most gruesome thing she’s ever seen, and by the time the paramedics had arrived my mom has already bled to death but my dad was still alive and they tried saving him but lost him in the hospital due to internal bleeding in the brain they couldn’t stop it. She was right I got haunted by all that, I imagined the accident in my head and started to ache. Anyways, today my aunt came by to drop me off to college I was excited. IT’S COLLEGE! However she wasn’t, because me being a troublemaker at school led her to not trust me as much, now we’re on the way to University of Southern California and Naomi keeps talking and giving me lectures and warnings like she’s my mom. “Ok mom, sure, I’m a grown up, I can take care of my self”, “Noah your motorcycle will arrive in two days but just because you have one doesn't mean you can go around racing and get into trouble” Naomi said dropping me off, “yeah I promise bye”, “bye sweetie love you, call me if you need me”, “love you too, thanks again” replying to her.

Walking into college is like taking a sip of a freedom drink, hot chicks, parties everywhere… but I’ve got to focus on studying if I want to work in Google, college here I come.

Got to my dorm my roommate is a 6’3 feet, science major black dude named Aiden, he isn’t as creepy as he looks, his tattoos and how bulked he was he scared the shit out of me till he greeted me with a hug and saying “DUUUDDEE WELCOME TO UNIVERSITY OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA!”, plus his profile doesn’t really match a science major student to me. “in here you’ll find the hottest chicks, all new girls are the hottest, forget about sorority girls if you want the real deal”, “yeah, cool never really liked sorority chicks anyways”, “didn’t catch your name”, “it’s Noah”, “cool, I’m heading to the gym if you want to join me later or if you wanna stay and unpack it’s ok but know that we’ll be going to the wildest party tonight, the whole campus will be there *wink * if you know what I mean”, “yeah I’ll stay and unpack and see you at the party”, “ok peace”, I should really start unpacking if I’m going to go to that party.

 

“Ok mom don’t worry I’ll be fine”, “I love you honey”, “I love you too mom”, my mom is really protective and since I’m going to college it’s worrying her even more, she gave me this whole speech about how that I’m on my own blah blah blah, and she’s told me she’s going to miss me over 60 times already but it’s ok she loves me and I love her. “HIII ROOMMIIEEE WELCOME TO UNIVERSITY OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA, I’m Dahlia”, “hey Dahlia I’m Aria”, “you’ll love it here the classes, parties, and boys goosshhh!”, ok so my room mate is a Regina George minion, all pink and girly, not what I hoped for but hopefully we’ll get along. “So you wanna join me to the party tonight?... the whole campus will be there”, “ yeah sure, why not I mean it’s college”, “That’s the spirit, I’m gonna go get my hair done, I’ll see you in an hour, CIAO!”, “yeah bye”, definitely a Regina George minion. So the party looks big and Dahlia wasn’t exaggerating when she said the whole campus will be here, wow, neon lights and all, cool. I got lost in the crowd, I knew no one but Dahlia at this party literally, and I’m not introducing my self to anyone now seeing that almost all are drunk if I want to go back to sleeping in my own bed alone, I went around looking for Dahlia and found her talking to this dude well not talking it looked as if he’s pulling her hand and she’s trying to pull away, I had to take action so I went over, “HEY YOU! WHAT THE HELL YOU THINK YOU’RE DOING”, “and who the hell are you?, who is she dahlia?”, “,my room mate Nick” dahlia said while trying not to cry, “dahlia you are coming with me and we are leaving PRONTO!”, “Ok I’-“ Nick cut dahlia out saying “what do you mean OK? YOU’RE STAYING HERE”, I just couldn’t keep watching this I had to make a scene so I punched the bastard, college boys could be so stupid and such douches nowadays, as soon as I punched him he fell on the floor and I went down and kept punching till Dahlia came and held me back telling me to stop, when I looked up everyone was staring so I went out.

 

When I got t the party me and Aiden the first thing I saw was this girl punching this guy named Nick I didn’t know why, then I asked Aiden’s friend Chad and he said that Nick was abusing a girl so the new comer punched him protecting her friend Dahlia, I saw her that girl she walked past me I looked straight into her eyes, and hell she was the prettiest girl I’ve ever seen with an angry look on her face, I had to know her, risking it I walked out finding her with dahlia, Aiden had followed me asking me what the hell was I doing, I told him I’m gonna go help and he came with me. “Hey are you girls okay?” Aiden spoke first I was shy, “yeah thank you Aiden” so he knew Dahlia, hmmmm…, “Hi I’m Aiden this is my roommate Noah he’s new here” , that girl stood there didn’t say a word and dahlia spoke instead, “hi Noah I’m Dahlia and this is my roommate Aria”, “hey sorry for what happened in there I just couldn’t he was such a douche”, “no problem that was actually a brave thing of you impressed a girl like you could punch like that”, “haha yeahh…”, her voice was like an angel once she spoke. “So you also new here?” I asked Aria, “yeah first day art major what about you?”, “I’m majoring in computer science, your hands there’s blood on it”, “oh… I didn’t notice them”, “wait here”, I came back with a cup of vodka and one of Aiden’s shirts he kept one in his trunk, poured the vodka on Aria’s hand and she shrieked a bit because of the sting then I held her hand in the shirt till the bleeding stopped, “thank you”, “don’t mention it”, when I looked back into her eyes all I could see was stars, her hair brunette with these light highlights in them and how it flew with the wind gosh I’m crushing on a new girl, great. After all of this going back to my room exhausted all I wanted to do was to shower and sleep, can’t miss class tomorrow on the first day, that would leave an awful impression.

The room became awfully cold and I can’t seem to get comfortable in this bed, looking at the clock it’s 3:04 AM, I look around the room Aiden didn’t turn off his night lamp, fear of dark, really doesn’t match his profile. Staring at the ceiling trying to find sleep but there was none, been staring long that I lost track of time, looked at the clock it was still 3:04 AM, that’s impossible, it can’t still be 3:04 I mean it felt long staring at the ceiling, something must be off with the clock, as I started realizing noises appeared outside the door, can’t quite hear what it was, maybe the janitor… But… suddenly a loud knock was on the door, Obnoxiously loud and rough, I looked at Aiden to see if it had awakened him but he slept like a baby, there it was again the knock followed by a scratch, it was terrifying. I stood up and went to check what that noise was, telling myself it must be a prank just to relief the fear I’m feeling, as I opened the door a black shadow ran across the hallway, I couldn’t quite see what it was, it moved too fast, I stepped my head out and looked at the direction it ran towards and saw that black shadow standing there it’s back facing me, it sent chills down my spine so I shut the door and locked it saying to myself it’s just a prank, as soon as I turned back to head to bed, this creature stood in front of me it’s face two inches away from mine, it was horrifying I thought I was going to die and this is the messenger of death coming to kill me, his face was all scarred and his eyes just layed there staring at me, they were completely white, this creature looked like a demon, a demon scary beyond your imagination, he breathed heavily from his nose, I felt each breath he took, I tried to scream or runaway but I couldn’t, I just stood there couldn’t move a joint, it was as if I’m paralyzed, he got closer and I saw him clearer, his skin was rotten and his mouth as soon as he opened it his teeth all sharp and destroyed and black blood came out his mouth just flowing down towards his chest. He moved his mouth closer to my ear whispering something it sounded familiar, I had heard what he said before some where, it wasn’t English or any type of language that has ever existed, it sounded like what my grandmother would say when she talked to her self, the exact same sequence exact same words, and in a flash, lights went off and I felt a sharp object slash across my wrist and when the lights came back on he was gone, that demon was gone, but he slashed my wrist it bled a lot, he drew a symbol a star within a circle, the symbols you see in movies about witches and devils, it hurt, then Aiden woke up looking at my wrist he thought I did that to my self but I couldn’t speak my body was still numb from what had happened, it was a feeling worst than death, it just felt like that. Aiden helped put me back to bed and wrapped my wrist for me, gave me pills and I fell asleep. Whatever that was, whatever it wanted from me, I have to know.

 

This new comer Noah helped wrap the wounds from the punch, to be honest he was kind of cute, and it looked like he was a bit shy to talk to me. When he looked back at me I stared in his eyes, something felt odd about him, it’s like I looked into his soul I saw purity but something else it was as if something is trying to get to him but I didn’t know what.  “I’m sorry again for what happened today I didn’t mean for you to get in trouble, but thank you for defending me like that.”, “don’t worry about it Dahlia. How long have you been with him?”, “we’re not together…. “, “what? Why is he treating you like that?” , “he was just drunk that’s all” , “how long has he been like that Dahlia?” , “well… fine… he’s always been like this abusive, controlling, he wasn’t like this the first time we met, he was sweet, but of course that was all fake”, “you can’t let him keep treating you in that way, no girl should be treated like that, you need to go end it with him as soon as possible if you want to have any dignity left, he’s not right for you or for any girl” , “yeah you’re right, I have to end it but I’m scared I mean what if he does something…” , “ I’ll be there for you, he can’t touch you and you need to go end it in the hard way, just straight forward, show him how much of a douche he is” , “yeah ok thank you Aria. Soooo….. what was that between you and the new guy Noah I swear I could tell you guys had a moment”, “there was no moment Dahlia, come on I just got into college, it’s only my first day and we’re talking about moments, lets live a little no?  I mean we do deserve to live…” , “yeah you’re right, still though you had a moment * wink *” , “shut up and go to sleep we have class tomorrow *giggles * “, “yeah damn, ok nighty roomie”, “goodnight Dahlia”.

*Alarm ringing* “WAKE UP YOU’RE GOING TO MISS YOUR FIRST CLASS HERE ARIAAAAAA!” , “whaaayyyttt?..... leave mee aloneee… I didn’t pee in your toilett” , “uhmm Aria? *laughs* wake up pee lady *laughs*”,”pee? What?... what time is it?”, “you were sleep talking saying you didn’t pee in my toilet *giggles*, and it’s 8:30 AM”, “what the hell? I said that?! God I must’ve been tired…. EIGHT THIRTYYY?!!!! IM GONNA BE LATE TO CLASS!”, “oh well, I tried, I’m going to go first see ya later alligator”. I was late for my first class on my first day, such bad luck, first last night now today, we’re off to a very bad start here, hopefully it won’t always be like this.

 

Aiden woke me up and left for class, I would’ve left early too but my head was pounding it hurt as if someone hit me with a hammer on it, then I looked at my wrist where the wound was from last night’s demon attack, unraveling the tissue on it, I was surprised to see that there was nothing there, my skin all clear no star no circle not a scratch, that was very odd and disturbing I’m going to try and get through the day avoiding as much people I can just to clear my mind.

While walking to class I noticed someone else was running late too, when that person came closer, it was Aria the pretty brunette I saw the night before, she had this furious look on her face and lost, “Hey Aria right?”, “yeah… you’re Noah the guy from last night, sorry about last night I just lost control”, ”it’s okay I wasn’t the one who got punched stop apologizing, besides, nick had it coming”, “yeah he’s a pig, he did deserve it, I don’t regret punching him and I’d do it again if I had to”, “why aren’t you in class?”, “oh right class, totally forgot, I don’t know how to get there, do you?” , “what class are you looking for?”, “art”, “I think its in the other building, you’re in the science building now”, “shit, first day really is messy”, “I can walk you there if you want”, “but don’t you have class?”, “I can miss this one, not really into classes today”, “okay thank you so much”, “don’t thank me, so is Dahlia your roommate nice?”, ”you can say it I don’t really care”, “say what?”, “Noah…”, “fine, she looks dumb to be honest the type of girl you have as a bully at your school, well.. not the actual bully the helper though”, “hahhahahahaha, yeah a Regina George minion to be exact. I saw how your friend looked at her yesterday, looked like he likes her” , “that’s Aiden and he sure does”, “so Noah, what is it that I find odd about you?”, “what do you mean?” , “ I mean that there’s something about you I don’t know maybe it’s just me but last night when I looked you in the eye it felt like I looked into your soul and saw something strange…. Sorry I shouldn’t be talking” , “no it’s ok, what do you mean you looked into my soul?”, “I have a gift from my dad he could see into someone’s eye and into his soul, if it’s pure, or evil… when I looked into yours I saw purity but something else, I’ve never seen like it… “, “what’d you see?” , “a demon… I saw a demon in you”, “can you describe what he looked like?” , ‘’his eyes were completely white, body all scratched and scarred his skin was like a zombie’s, and his teeth all mushed up, sharp and black blood was flowing out of his mouth…. You may think I’m crazy but that’s the truth”, “Aria, you’re not crazy… here’s your class, and look here’s my number after you’re done why don’t we meet up at Starbucks? There’s something i need to talk to you about”, “yeah okay sure I’ll text you when I’m done”, “yeah okay see you later”, “Bye Noah”. She saw it, I wasn’t crazy, she saw a demon in me, and that only meant one thing, all those years living with my grandma I knew something else was there, but I wasn’t sure, now from what has happened I’m sure that my grandma didn’t die of cancer.

 

Noah looked terrified after what I’ve told him, I could tell by the concern on his face and how serious he was about meting up after class, there is something going on with him, and I know I shouldn’t involve my self but I have to, he needs help and I will help him, I’m the only one who can, since I could see things no one else can. Class was weird, I had to stare at a naked old lady for the past 50 minutes trying to draw every edge of her body but I just couldn’t it was disgusting, it ruined my appetite. After the first class I went to look for Dahlia since she texted me during class saying it’s an emergency and to meet her at the football field, so I went, and there I saw here standing crying in the corner, I rushed to see what was wrong then she showed me a picture, it was nick making out with another girl, someone caught him and sent the picture to Dahlia, it broke her, I tried to calm her down and cheer her up as much as I could, my next class was about to start I had to leave, but I couldn’t leave her alone not when she’s like this, so I decided to skip this class and went to Starbucks, got her a drink and texted Noah ‘I’m in Starbucks with Dahlia, come meet me as we planned and bring Aiden with you  -Aria’ .

Noah and Aiden arrived 30 minutes after I texted Noah, he looked scared, and as soon as Aiden saw Dahlia’s puffed eyes, he rushed and asked her what was wrong, he sure cares for her, and I hope she realizes that. Noah approached the table and said that he really needed to talk, he sounded serious so we went for a walk. We’ve been walking for over an hour and all that Noah had told me seemed crazy at first, but then thinking about it and what I’ve seen it’s not crazy, he told me about how his grandma used to talk to herself and all of that, it was a demon she was talking to the spirits and that lead to her dying, she surely must’ve gone crazy being haunted like that, and he told me about the incident he had the night before, the demon I saw is haunting him, we needed to find a priest right away. We went back to campus and took my car and drove around to find any church near by, and we did, when we walked in a priest was already standing there praying, so I approached him told him the story, Noah though didn’t look well to me he looked scary the look he had on his face staring at the priest, as soon as the priest saw him like that he said a demon is trying to possess him and that an exorcism must be performed right away.

I don’t know where I am, I see myself standing in a church but I can’t control anything in my body, I see Aria standing next to a priest, they look terrified but why?... ‘Noah….. ‘ what the hell was that!, ‘it’s her fault, if she just let me have her soul you wouldn’t be in this position’... woah…. It can’t be, NO! I want to scream help me but I can’t seem to, I can’t feel my body, I’m blacking out, everything is going dark, NO! ARIA DON’T COME CLOSER HE’S GOT ME! As hard I try to scream in my head nothing is there.

 

“Noah? Are you ok?” he wasn’t answering he just stood there staring at the priest, and suddenly, his eyes shifted to me, I called again “Noah you’re scaring me”, “I’m not Noah”, oh no it’s the demon, after it had spoken his hands Noah’s hands just twisted and he started laughing the demon was hurting Noah, the priest kept screaming at e telling me to back away from him, it started screaming so loud, sounded like a death angel dying over and over it was horrible, then suddenly it went down on the floor and just laid there laughing, I looked back looking for the priest but he wasn’t there, then I saw him coming out of a room with a cross and holy water, he ran towards Noah’s body and splashed holy water on it, and kept calling the demon to reveal himself holding the cross towards it, that’s when Noah’s phone started ringing, it said Naomi, I answered “hello? Who is this?”, “I’m Naomi Noah’s aunt who are you? Where’s Noah?”, “I’m his friend, you have to come down here at St. Claire’s church, there’s something wrong with Noah, the priest is performing an exorcism right now”, “WHAT?!.. oh god I knew this would happen, I’m coming right away”, she knew this would happen. The demon passed out from the priest’s holy water, another priest came out and helped carry Noah to a room and in it there was this big cross they tied him to it, so they can keep on going with the exorcism. The priest told me to wait outside so the demon doesn’t try to jump fro Noah to me, so I did, 20 minutes later I hear screaming, and the demon was shouting in a language that I have never heard before, that’s when a lady came rushing through the doors, I knew from first sight that she was Noah’s aunt, by the terrified concerned look she had on her face. “WHERE IS HE? WHERE IS MY NEPHEW?”, “he’s inside, they already started the exorcism on him”, “I need to be with him”, “no do-“, she pushed me aside and rushed in there, when I entered, the view, the person hanging on the cross, didn’t look like Noah, it was something else, his eyes looked like a demon’s, and blood was flowing from his wrists from trying to escape, the expression on his face could kill an elephant, it wasn’t Noah standing in front of me, it wasn’t the cute boy who helped heal my wounds, it was something wearing him. “NOAH! HONEY IT’S YOUR AUNT PLEASE ANSWER ME!! WHAT DID YOU DO TO HIM YOU DIRTY LITTLE PIECE OF SHIT!!”, “aunt Naomi, it’s me it’s Noah”, wait, that’s Noah that’s his voice, as soon as his aunt saw that she rushed to him even though the priests kept warning her that it was still the demon playing a trick on her, she ignored their words and rushed to what is supposed to be Noah, as soon as she got close and tried to untangle him from the bands that held his wrist, he opened his mouth widely and bit into her neck, and ripped her throat out with his teeth, blood was everywhere, the priests were right it wasn’t Noah. ”Who’s the dirty little piece of shit now! *the demon laughed* I bet you didn’t see that coming, such a fool they warned you, you should’ve listened to those idiots”, the demon said and it frustrated me that I screamed at it and said “LEAVE NOAH ALONE, YOU WANTED HIS GRAND MA BUT HE’S LONG GONE, GOD WILL SHOW YOU NO MERCY DEMON”, “ *demon laughed* you think god will save him? That he’ll save any of you, you’re all going to die, ALL OF YOU!!” then the demon kept saying those weird words sounded exactly like the ones Noah told m his grand ma used to say. The priests went and stuck the cross to it’s head, and kept calling the demon out in the name of god, torturing him at the end placing a bag on it’s head covering it, the room started to shake and blood came out I’m guessing from it’s mouth and revealed on the bag, then suddenly everything stopped, Noah stopped moving. Was it over? Was the demon finally out?

 

“Aria? Are you there? Aria? HELP!”, “NOAH!” I heard Aria’s voice, waking up with a bag over my face I was terrified, I heard two other voices, men, they said he was cured, cured?, it can’t be. The bag was removed of my face and I was released from whatever that I was tied to, when I looked up I saw Aria and two priests, they had performed the exorcism, I was cured that was what they meant, then I looked at the ground on the left, there was a body, a dead body…. I walked towards it I knew that person, when I looked closer, that’s when it shocked me the most, it was my Aunt Naomi, her throat was ripped out, “NOOOOOOOO!”, “it wasn’t your fault Noah, she came close she didn’t listen, we tried to stop her, she’s at peace now, nothing and no one will harm her”, “I did this, the demon did this, it was all my grand ma’s fault! If my parents hadn’t died, and I hadn’t lived with my crazy as grand ma none of this would’ve happened!”, I kept crying and crying, then when I calmed down, the priests offered to help me prepare a funeral for Naomi in the church in less than a week, and I took the offer, she’s always been there for me, now I’m on my own.

It’s been three days since the incident, today is my Aunt’s funeral, who I have killed, the possessed me, I wrote an eulogy for her, and read it at her funeral. After the funeral we all went to the bar and drank, me, Dahlia, Aiden, and Aria. Aria walked and sat beside me at the bar while Dahlia and Aiden were dancing, “it wasn’t your fault, and she will be fine, she loves you and you love her, and she would be so proud of you for being so brave and strong, I know you have no one now, but you have me and Aiden and Dahlia, we’ll always be here whenever you need us you know that”, “yeah thank you for helping me, I really appreciate you caring for me and sticking by my side through this all, we’ve only just met but it feels like we’ve known each other for ages”, “don’t thank me I’ll always be here for you.”

*10 years later*

“NOAHHH!! Lily’s going to be late to school hurry up!”, “ok ok I’m coming… good morning  honey”, “Morning *kisses Noah on the cheek* did you sleep well?”, “yeah very well… How’s my little jar of flowers doingggg?!!”, “hi daddy, look what I drew, that’s me, and you, and mom, going on a picnic”, “that’s amazing such an artist, now come on lets go or you’ll be late to school and I’ll b late to work”, “you work at Google it doesn’t matter if you’re late”, “but it matters if you’re late, now lets go”, “ok, bye mommy”, “bye sweetie love you”, “love you too”, “bye Noah”, “bye honey”, watching my husband and daughter leave every morning is sad, but I know that by end of the day I’ll have them back. It feels like only yesterday when Noah helped me with my wound the first day in college, who knew it would lead to us getting married. I was home lone for the rest of the day, so I had the chance to do all chores since I have a day off, I cleaned the kitchen first and the dining table, then I heard a noise, like a knock on the window, it must’ve been the wind. My daughter Lily left her drawing on the floor, I noticed it when I stepped on it accidentally, I bent to pick it up, as soon as I did, I looked at the drawing and noticed something odd, in the drawing, at the back there was a creature, my daughter didn’t mention drawing it, I assumed it was a dog, then I looked closely, no… it can’t be…. How is it possible?... terrified I noticed it was the demon that possessed Noah before, it’s in the picture my daughter drew him, then suddenly I turned around and I saw it standing outside the window, it’s back o haunting us. I thought it was gone. ‘Aria…. Your little precious girl will be mine soon, you’ll see’, it said to me through the window, I ran quickly to the cabinet near the door and got a bible out, when I turned around the demon wasn’t in the window anymore, I went closer o the window and suddenly I felt heavy breathes behind me, it was standing behind me breathing in my ear, saying ‘she’ll be mine’.
