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 Nightmare9 months 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
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 Pills9 months 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

“-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 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

“Guten Morgen!” the inhuman coal figure said mockingly, in Kevin’s body.
“Schnauze, Esel! AAAAAAAGH!”
“Heh heh heh, want to know what happened last night?” the Observer asked, knowing that the human wouldn’t be able to refuse the offer.
Kevin sighed, “What new horrors do you have today, oh shitty jackaAAAAAAAAAAA!”
The Observer looked to his upper right, and Kevin looked in the same direction.
An image displayed Noah, with the Observer’s demented symbols in his eyes. Noah smiled unnaturally, and positioned the camera so that whoever was watching would see him cutting himself on the chest, trying to kill himself as painfully as possible. Before he could cut himself with deeper,

“Yes, what were you expecting?”
“You to look like a marionette, be as fast as a sped-up hyperactive child, and move like an orangutan on roller skates.”
“What flavor of crack are you on?”
“I-I haven’t taken any crack, sir! I-I’m just confused.”
“Well, any human would be,” the Observer said to the desperate human before him.
“Ho-how does this work?”
“You just put the pills in your mouth, and you become one of us.”
“Will it h-hurt?”
“No.” The Observer lied.
“O-okay.” The girl gulped down the pills. The Observer smiled, the girl looked nervous at the being.
“U-um, what now?”
“You come with me to,” a portal opened in front of the two “our dimension, our world, where we are together forever.” The coal figure held out his hand, which the lone cultist eagerly took.

The Observer watched his vessel be punished for daring to disobey his oppressors, for even imagining that he had a snowball’s chance in HELL to defy the Collective. After several hours, the Observer grew tired of the figure’s torment, and decided to feed it. After all, once you chose a vessel, you couldn’t reverse or change the process, and you did have to keep it alive until your session was completed.
Kevin panted, coughed up blood, and tried to see where he was, now that his punishment had been completed.
The Observer grabbed him by the neck, and held up his hand, which was full of pills. “Either take this through the mouth, or through an IV!”
“Th-the mouth, please.”
Kevin tried to make it seem as though he swallowed the pills when he hadn’t, and the Observer wasn’t buying it. The Observer shoved more pills down the human’s

"Are you sure that he's going to come?" Otto said, finishing Sheila's sentence.
"Positive." Marvin grinned. "He said 'Come to Victor Park.' His instructions couldn't be more crystal clear."
"OK." The two behind him said simultaneously.
"Jinx, you owe me a soda." They then repeated over and over until they were out of breath.
Several more hours passed under the moonlit sky. For some reason, the stars seemed to be hiding, and the night sky only had the moon to break its darkness. Each minute felt like a decade passing. It was getting late, and the sun would be rising in only an hour. And as pretty as it was to see the sunset from this tower, it wasn't what they had snuck out for.
"Damn, I guess he's not coming." Marvin muttered, disappointed.
"Let's go, I hate staying up this la-AAAAAAAHHH!"
"Ha ha ha! Am I interrupting you three? Trying to have a menage a trois atop the tower? Such dirty, filthy humans

“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

“Shh, shh.” The being said, putting his finger to the human’s mouth. “Relax, you’re going to become one of us.”
“Wh-who-?” Dark figures on a white background floated in all directions, all looking at the two.
“You didn’t come to the park, and you just had to come here! So we brought you here!” The figure smiled.
“Am . . . am I at a rave?”
“Sure! Oh, here!” the almost inhuman figure took out several pills.
“Take these, you’ll feel better.”
“Huh? Oh! Ecstasy! Thanks, man! –gulp- Say, who designed the club? It looks like-?!“
He belched, loudly. “Woo! What a rush!”
“Heh heh heh.”
After several hours of exploring the strange place, the thrills he felt began to fade away, and he began to feel pain instead of pleasure.

“I believe that I already told you, I’m the Sentinel, otherwise known as the Observer.”
“Um, don’t you have a name? A first and last name?”
“No, you humans have names, I have a title.”
“I know that people with jobs have titles but it’s kinda taking it a step too far for your title to be your name.”
“It was not my choice, my keeper created me to do my job.”
“Wait a minute, what did you mean ‘you humans’? And by your keeper, who are you talking about? And what’s your job? Why did you contact me? And how did you get into my apart-?”
The Observer put up his finger to the human’s mouth to silence him.

“Never!” The Observer responded.
“Let me out! I just wanna go back to Earth! I want to live a normal life! And that means NOT KILLING PEOPLE!”
“Oh? But there are so many humans who slaughter others and try to put on the face of innocence.”
“Go away!” Kevin was tired of having to do such monstrosities. He was losing his sanity. How long would it take for this madness to end?
After weeks of trying to find a way out of this hellish frontier, to find the border between worlds and somehow escape, he was losing memories and hope with each passing . . . moment. Time didn’t seem to exist in this world, so saying “moment” was as close as you could get to measuring time. And “pace” was pretty much the official measurement for space.
“Silly human, you cannot and WILL NOT escape us. Ever.” The coal figure took out more pills and shoved them down the
