ALC: MOTHER! by ArtemioM05 ALC: MOTHER! by ArtemioM05
"...We're leaving." you announce suddenly.

"H-hey!  We ain't finished here!" the dark elf shouts after you, stumbling to try to catch up.

"Kiss my ass."

"Oh my."  Deano sniggers.  There's a shit eating smile on his face as he watches your sisters scurry to keep up with your renewed pace.

...

"River?  River, uh, what's going on?" Demsdale asks.

"What was that!?  What's gotten into you!?"

"Exactly." you answer with grim resolve.  You look down at your hands.  You feel so much stronger.  There is a power within you now, far beyond this puny frame.  And it isn't right.  None of this is right.  And you know exactly who will have answers.

...

"Nice house." you observe as you past under the door frame.  It's all so familiar.  But you know.  Somehow.  It's all one big fraud.

"River!  River!  Maybe you should lie down?" Brook begs, clinging onto your left arm.

"Mom isn't going to like this." Demsdale adds in, grabbing your right.

"She's not our mother." you snap at them, ripping your arms free.

"W-what!?"

"She's not our mother." she answer, launching yourself up the stairs, "Not our birth mom, not our adopted mom.  She's nothing but a fake." you declare bitterly.  You push open each door and rush in, almost like a predator trying to corner your next meal.  "I can't...I can't say how or why...but this is all just one big lie...and I won't be played the fool any longer.   I want answers."

"You...River-"

"That's not my name!"

"You're gonna leave?"  Demsdale asks quietly.  That...you pause.  You hadn't quite thought about it like that.  But what will you do if it's really...?

"I don't know what you're talking about." Demsdale bit her lip, "But Mom...she loves us.  You can tell can't you?  I mean...I don't wanna get sappy...but you can see it in her eyes...hear it in her voice.  I don't...know if I can believe what you're saying.  I don't know if I can just...not be here anymore..."

"...It depends on Mother.  On her answer."
 
"...Either way.  Mom isn't here." Brook mumbles looking away.

"No...she's not." you agree.

The floorboards begin to crack and creak and groan...just like last time.
