I hope someone reads this. Heck I don't know if anyone will, but it's worth a shot. Let's start this off with introductions shall we. Hello, my name is Ace, don't ask me formal name, because I don't want to remember, even if I use it in here. This... what is this? I guess you could say it's a Journal in which me and, my family, will eventually write in. Maybe the story will even begin to write itself, this book has special properties. Now before I begin, I want to say this isn't a bed time story, it won't help you sleep at night. It's never helped me, whether it's to sleep, or to relax. Even typing this, for me is like a nightmare. Now where to begin....I was a normal 10 year old girl, and it was autumn, in the month of October. I was on my way home to my house in Detroit Michigan, and leaves were crunching underneath my feet. The colors shimmered still on some of the leaves, and it gave me a feeling of joy. I simply loved October, for all its splendor, from pumpkin pie, to trick-or-treating, and I had made a cool picture for my parents, that I had to show them. As I got closer to home however, something felt off. I didn't know what it was, or could be, but all the same nothing that wrong could be going on at home. I didn't turn around, though my internal compass kept threatening to. The wind blew my hair across my face, and the jacket I wore somehow kept me from being chilled. As I approached the front door, I noted it was quiet. "Maybe they're asleep?," I wondered allowed, knowing somehow this wasn't right.
I began to advance a little ways into my house. Then I saw something that made me wish I'd listened to my internal compass. There was a women's hand by the door, it held to rings two on it. One was moms sisterhood ring, from the coven she was a part of, the other was moms marriage ring. My heart raced and, even felt like it was going up my throat. Fear periced me like a knife, and my figure trembled like a leaf on the wind. "Mom," I whispered,"d-dad?"
Tears slid down my cheeks, each tear was like a river of terror. I was about to tremble out another call for my parents, when I heard someone say,"Adris just had to disobey, he had to leave this blasted witch alive, and have a daughter."
I laid low, and listened, these guys had to be the ones who had hurt mom. Then I heard another guy,"Oh come on ziky, it was fun to rip the 2 of them apart!"
"Yeah but, Falis....," was all I heard Ziky say before ignored them all together.
My dad was a demon, and mom was a witch, they said I was normal, they couldn't just be killed could they. There was no way I thought, no way they could be taken so easily. I mentally took a breath, then slowly, quietly, peered around the corner, the way I was taught. Then I saw my dads darker armored skin, and mouthes, that were usually hidden by his human guise. He was cut to peices, his horns were held by Falis, his guts were stuck to the ceiling, and his mouth was in a never ending scream of anger, and pair, his green and red eyes were dull. Moms body wasn't much different, the exceptions being that both her hands were gone, one was by the front door, and her eyes were gouged out being eaten by Ziky. Stepping back quietly, and refraining from a scream, I began to run. I didn't realize I dropped my bag till I heard it thud on the ground. "She's here!," Ziky stated obviously.
"I'll get her Ziky, leave her to me," he said his voice now sounding monstrous.
"Go for it," Ziky growled, no longer sounding human.
My feet flew underneath me, I raced out the back making them run around the house to catch me. I kept moving, running in between trees, across rivers and, through passes. Then I got myself cornered by 2 cliffsides. I tried to right myself, but when I turned around I had been cornered, the 2 men had become demons, and I had no gaps to run through. Tears streamed down my face, I refused to beg for my life. When they noticed this, Ziky was the first one to speak,"We should put her in her place..."
"Calm now Zikielous, she'll be broken. Let's bring her back to our feast so she can watch," Falis said coldly.
Zikielous laughed and grabbed me, I tried to struggle away, but he held me painfully tight as we headed back to my parents, now grave. The threw me to the ground in the house. Pain rippled through me, my blood felt thick like curtled milk, and I felt like a lead weight, I couldn't move. Then I saw them gather all of the remains in the middle, they laughed, and drooled as if it was a holiday dinner. I heard the thuds of limbs, and squishes of guts and blood splatter. Then they froze me somehow into a never ending stare toward the center of my living room turned splatter house. I wished I could look away, but I couldn't even close my eyes. They took their first splashy, crunchy bites, and all I could do was scream, and cry while the ate my parents, turning them into nothing but a memory. By the end of their feast, I had screamed my self to silence, and cryed till I had nothing left. When I was finally unfrozen, I forced myself into the wall of the room. Falis laughed and, approached me,"Let me keep her as a pet Ziky. I'll break her then kill her."
"Way to take all the fun Falis, but fine, I'll keep her from Zalgo," Ziky said without a second thought,"now let's go."
Sticky, squishy, steps made their way over to me. Falis stood above me with a smile, and said,"You're lucky Opal. You played this card game right, and got the Ace of Hearts. If you'd pulled the Ace of Spades, you'd be dead right now. Thake this as a blessing."
Then he picked me up, and left me shaking in his arms, as I cried silent phantom tears. Let me just break the story by BLESSING MY ASS! It took 1/2 of a year for me to realize that when he said blessing, that he meant for me to be his entertainment slave. 3 years all togther for me to feel completely numb. I guess you could say the forcing to get naked, and being raped would do it, but it was also the constant cheating me from safety at the end of every week. OVER! AND OVER AND OVER! The last day of every week, I wasn't raped, I would be forced to go in the basement. Then he would pull out a deck of cards, and make me try to earn my safety from his torture. This was like any other day however when he called me, all I did was shrug and walked over. He seemed irritated by my lack of response, but I didn't really care. He looked like he was deciding something before he said his usual line. "Shall we play a card game Opal?" he asked me,"remember if you pick the Ace of Hearts you won't be punished this week, but if you grab the Ace of Spades again you will be sawed or sliced again, and maybe this time I'll take a limb."
I nodded, and stared at his cards. It never really mattered what I picked, I always got the Ace of Spades. So this time I just grabbed one, cause like I said it didn't matter. Like before I had grabbed an Ace of Spades. He laughed, and then noted me, unreactive, numb, and appearing to be bored. Although this is what he made me, he didn't seem proud of his work. His eye twitched, and he growled. "You're broken! You don't cry! You do nothing! So it's time you were fixed!", Falis ranted.
Suddenly I wasn't numb anymore, he had pulled out his chainsaw, and he had obvious intent to kill me. I wasn't fun anymore, he didn't want a broken toy. I didn't have the same numbness that I'd had just a second ago. He had finally wore me to nothing, no patience, no kindness, no fear, just hate and pain. "I'M BROKEN! BUT ISN'T THAT WHAT YOU WANTED?!," I began retorting in an all out yell,"YOU WANTED ME TO BREAK FROM THE BEGINNING! I HAVE ONLY DONE WHAT YOU'VE ASKED FOR! I HAVE BROKEN AND I DON'T CARE!"
He growled at me and swung at me with the now running chainsaw, and I teleported away. "DIE!", He hollered as I kept dodging.
My anger only grew as I felt burning pain radiating from me, then I continued to yell,"IF YOU'RE THE ACE OF HEARTS....THEN LET ME BE YOUR ACE OF SPADES! BECAUSE IF YOU'RE A BLESSING, THEN I'M EVEN MORE SO! IF TORTURE, RAPE, AND MURDER ARE ALL GOOD THINGS, THEN I MUST BE TO BEST FUCKING THING EVER! CAUSE YOU CAN DO ME THE FAVOR OF DYING EASILY FOR ME WHEN I PUT YOU THROUGH HELL!"
He charged at me again, and I teleported. In fact I had found a hunting knife on the table behind me. The burning got worse till I stabbed him. Some how the knife was glowing purple, and when I looked at him I saw an acid like burned hole through him. He fell to the ground, with a look in his eyes, that told me me he had been scared,, but had still planned to won against me in the fight he had obviously lost. Then something else had caught my attention. I saw a mirror I had never noticed before, and inside of its reflection, I stood. But, it wasn't me, my skin was a black brown, and looked more like a hard armor, my eyes were no longer natural colors but green orbs with red irises, and obsideon pupils, and I had 4 mouths instead of my usual 1, 1 on each shoulder, and another on my upper right leg. To top it all off, all 4 mouths had sharp razor teeth, and my main mouth, had a red purple smoke which left it every time I took a breath. Before I could explore the image farther on myself, a white flame with red accents overtook my body temporarily. It covered me with an all white outfit, white boots, and white pants, a white shirt that showed my shoulders, but before it could finish covering me I noticed a thick red substance seemed to leak from my eyes. Then the flame overtook my face too, and when it disappeared it showed a mask of pure white, it had black eyeholes that looked like closed eyes with huge eyelashes, and had 2 red streaks that looked like blood. Then I felt a smile cross my face, and a laugh bursting from my lips. I saw the chainsaw Falis had used, and my laugh got even louder. I grabbed the chainsaw and reved it up, it roared to life and my laugh grew in it's sound till it crossed out the sound of the chainsaw. I then began to hack it into his flesh, and before I knew it he was nothing but a pile of pieces, and blood. I then threw his blood and guts all over. By the time I was done, I was finally back in the numb state of mind, and I thought it was all a dream. Then I noticed I still had the mask on. If it was dreaming I didn't know, but I did know I had a lot of questions that I needed the answers too the next time that happened which is another story altoghter, but I do know now that I am the Ace of Spades.
