Kevin's Nightmare“Hello? Hellooo? Is anyone here? Hellooooo?” Kevin looked around, trying to find whoever had told him to come to Victor’s Park.Kevin's Nightmare3 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
“-sigh- Why did I come here? This is stu-?” -crack- “Wh-who’s there?”
Kevin fast walked towards where he had heard the branch breaking. As he got closer, his pace quickened. He moved forward, faster and faster, and he started to panic. Why couldn’t he feel his feet, turn left or right, or even slow down? Kevin began panting heavily, feeling that he was going to lose consciousness. He spread his arms, trying to grab onto a tree or something from the playground, but he couldn’t keep his grip even when he did manage to catch hold of a branch.
“HELP!” he cried. His vision was blurring. He couldn’t feel his arms now, and he lost grip of his flashlight. It fell to the ground and he couldn’t see anything of the forest on this moonless night.
Suddenly, his legs stopped, and he almost f

“-pant- -pant- Why?! -cough- -cough-“
“It seems that a friend of yours has been aging, exactly as planned.”
“Uh, people age naturally, so what would keep your plan from happening?”
The Observer tightened his grip on Kevin’s throat.
The Observer pointed to his upper left, at a picture. Kevin looked up, horrified. It was Milo’s grave. The date which had his death was decreasing, coming closer and closer to the current year.
“-cough- WHAT? WHY-uUgh-cough-!”
“He is ignoring his duties, defying his master, and resisting his orders!”
“Why do you need me, then?” Kevin thought.
“To use your body to monitor him, and perhaps convince him to give in, stop resisting, and JOIN US!”
“You monster! You FIEND! You-cough-!”
“Oh? Are your words supposed to sway me? Or are you just wagging your tongue just to defy us be
The Pills"Thank God, I don't have any homework today!" Kevin was happy that after a long, monotonous day of school, he didn't have any mindnumbing work that existed outside of the four walls of prison for three more evenings.The Pills3 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
He walked home, it was just a five-minute trip from school to his apartment complex. However, today was different. Kevin remembered a disturbing nightmare from several nights ago and decided to visit the park to convince himself that it really was just a dream.
He walked in a circle around the playground five times, slid down the slide, and used the rusty swings for ten minutes. He then walked to where he had been in the dream, looking around to see where he would've been running to. But the park ended after twenty feet in the direction he had walked.
He sighed. It truly had all been a dream.
The sun had started to dip on the horizon, so Kevin went home. He dropped his bags the minute he got in. As his left hand reached for the TV remote, he spotted a bag of pills on the k

“Hmm? What are you going on about?”
“If Noah’s being such a problem, why don’t you just kill him like Joe, or Megan, or any of the other people you’ve killed?”
“Cursor, the Ashers, your vessel’s family members, are coated in tot radiation. This was caused by your vessel’s father’s, Karl’s, discovery of Sebastian Kraus in the Black Forest. Due to the amount of radiation Sebastian was coated in, he contaminated Karl, who then contaminated the rest of his family, which includes Noah. We must kill him and make him a member so that the radiation does not spread. Why do you not realize this?”
“I just thought that-“
“You don’t question the keeper, Cursor.”
The Observer turned and faced Cursor, looking at her bandages.
“You should know that, Cursor. After all, you’ve been here longer than I have, and yet you still do not real

The two were floating in midair, the dark, scarlet sky beaming down on them. Kevin was trying to keep himself calm, and failing. The Observer’s smile was unceasing.
“Heh heh heh, you want to know why you’re here?”
“YES!” Kevin closed his eyes, wishing that he was still in his bedroom, away from all this insanity about time moving weirdly and his being ‘chosen’ for something he didn’t want.
“HA HA HA! Okay! You are in the year 834,890,621 A.D. Humankind has polluted the Earth, and is one of the only ten remaining species of this planet!”
“N-no . . .” Kevin couldn’t believe it. He didn’t like any of this. Decaying fish floated on the dark, multi-colored ocean, the cloud’s were jet black with grey splotches. The land looked like a dump with scraps of various textures here and there.
“Yes, I thought that this would be the right kind of place
Simon, The Old Man“The Observer?”Simon, The Old Man3 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
“Yes, that is my title.”
“What about a name, sonny?”
“That is also my name.”
The old farmer looked at the coal figure. “Prove it.”
The Observer sighed. Was this really the same man as before?
“So, according to my files you’re Simon Smith, a former spy who worked with Karl Kraus?”
“Kraus? Kraus? Oh, you want some sausage, sonny boy?”
The Observer had to bite his tongue. As much as he wanted to slit this human’s throat and bathe in his blood, it wouldn’t do the Observer any good killing him. His keeper wanted the human to join them, as a member of the Collective. And in order for the human to join them, he would have to take the pills . . .
“Right, yes, I’d love some. Can it have pig blood on it?”
“It can, but I don’t eat pig blood-covered sausage.”
The old human shuffled to start the barbeque, and the Observer put the pills in the old
