It’s not long until the pain is over and I’m feeling better than I ever had before. The trunk opens and light floods it. My skin burns at the sun. Quickly, I’m covered by a blanket and whisked away into a motel room. It’s dark and creepy. I’m no longer scared, in fact, I’m actually somewhat at ease.
“You’re going to do what we tell you” the scratchy low voice says from the right corner of the room.
“What do you mean?” I ask.
“I mean you’re one of us now. Now you don’t have a mom to tell you what to do. We won’t really tell you what to do. You’re safe from all of that now.” The voice replies.
“But you said I would have to-” I start but am cut off by the voice.
“No arguing!” It says sharply.
Raspy breathing sounds from all around me.
“What do you mean by that then?” I ask, choosing my words carefully, hoping not to anger the creature.
“I mean, you’re one of us now. Now you don’t have to do anything except for be with us. We only have few rules that you must abide by.” It says.
“1. You’re not human so don’t act human. 2. You’re better of now then you were before so be… Glad that we’re taking you in. 3. Don’t argue or talk back when you’re told to do something.”
And then there is complete silence.
“Go to sleep now” the voice purrs in my head.
I’m woken up by a series of hissings, the hissing doesn’t bother me anymore.
“We hate them” they say in unison.
I nod in agreement and we all head out.
“Oh please, me master, let me go first” the voices around me sound in the pitch black vehicle say in a growling type voice.
“We’ll test out the new one” the master says in his deep creepy growling type voice.
Instructions are given to me in my head. I drag my legless slimy black body into a long ago house I once lived in, new people live there now. I go into the room I once had and angrily grip the teenage girl’s leg. She looks down, and before she can scream, I throw her against the wall. Thump, thump, thump. Her body hits each step as I drag her down the steps. Blood smears the white carpet.
“I’ve done very well, yes I have indeed” I say in my new raspy voice.
Soon, I’ve taken her to the black car’s trunk with a bag over her head, bound her and I’m in the trunk, waiting until the right moment when she wakes up. When she does I greet her with a smile in the darkness, my sharp teeth glowing.
“You’ll thank me later” I growl.
And just like that, she’s one of us.
