The Mind of a Monster

http://www.protagonize.com/group/collaborative-corner/topic/6774/1
This here is the best summary.

Wet… lightning… good. Darkness abound. I can smell it, one of those things. I can sense it. It’s around here. Lure it into the darkness… This concrete alleyway. I have killed many things in similar places. For a long time. I need to kill. I must kill. It comes! It comes to death. Rage. Power. Fear. I am all.

There it is! It is old. Hairless. Male. I know it is what I seek. I sense so much hatred at it from deep inside. It walks alone, frail and defenceless. It is passing my hiding place. I growled, it is curious. Fool. They are always curious. It is walking in, looking around. It won’t look up until it is too late. Now I can kill… kill. Kill! KILL!!

 

I wrapped my tail around its neck. It tried to scream and struggle. I lifted it to my face. I stared at it. The fear in its eyes! Such glory! It knows it will die. This is what I live for!! I tightened my grip and I heard a snap coming from its neck. No… it’s not enough… it’s never enough. I threw it to the floor and clawed at it. Ripping it to shreds.

Blood, body parts, death. It painted the walls. I am glad it is dead. I am very happy. But I need another. Another to kill. Who else do I hate? A flashing image! A memory… A little boy? It called me smelly! It must die! Die! Die! Is it near? It is… I can remember its smell… it’s in this concrete jungle! I must find it… I must kill it!

 

I left the victim, I climbed to the rooftops, I can see a great distance around… must find my prey… my victim… must make it suffer for making me feel bad… FOUND IT! THAT WAY!! The smell of it is this way… I ran and jumped over the rooftops, following the scent. I must find it. Soon I will find it… soon I will kill it!

AH! WHAT IS THIS?! Something is talking to me! Listening to me! Watching me! Whatever it is it must die! Another old thing? Hair on its face but not on its head? Why does it look at me?! It thinks it can control me! I will kill it!! Wait… it’s gone… I must find my prey… I must kill it.

 

 

It is well into the night… but I’ve found it. In a house. Small. Lots of houses around… if anyone sees me I must kill them. Must kill my victims without hindrance. Things flock together. Things like to die together. I looked through a window, and there it is. It is old, like the others recently. Lots of wires in its body. A beeping machine. Watching a small box with images. Laughing. How dare it laugh! HOW DARE IT!! I smashed through the window. It yelled and limped with a metal walking stick with wires and liquids stuck to it.

I jumped on top of it and pounded it. It died. I cannot stop. I must continue to hurt it. Barely anything left now. Just a lump of bloodied meat. I am satisfied briefly, but I must find my next prey. My next victim. Another memory! A girl called me ugly! Must find it! Must kill it! I went outside and hid in darkness. I must find its scent… I must! I… I smell something else.

 

“Dammit! We’re too late! He’s already dead…” I heard one of those things say.

“I saw it Bensinse! It was big! It went into that alleyway!” Another thing said.

“Even Xeninta doesn’t know what it is, be careful. Anyone who isn’t a senior student must stay back, it could be very dangerous!” The first thing said.

 

One of those things appeared in front of my hiding place. How dare it interrupt me finding another prey! It will die! I will kill it! I must kill it! It smells funny. Weird. It is different. No matter. It will bleed like the rest. It is slowly walking into the darkness. I am above it, it can’t see me. I slowly crawled down to eat it. Bite its head off. I can kill! I can kill it! Kill! I will kill it now!

It looked up. It’s the first to look up. It yelled. No matter. It is too late. I lunged in to bite it, but a yellow flash stopped me. Something yellow, solid, hard, has appeared around it. It sparkles. I can’t bite through it! I hit it instead. I did not break it! I won’t stop! Must break it… must break it… must kill the thing inside.

 

Something hit me hard. I was blasted off from the walls out into the open. There are maybe a dozen things. They all smell different. One, a female, is raising its hands and wind is blowing its hair. It was wind that hit me! The other thing appeared from the alleyway. That yellow thing is gone. I stood and roared at them. They cowered in fear!

 

“What the hell is that thing?!” One of them screamed.

“Is it an EX gene or what?!” Another cried.

“Don’t let your guard down! It’s a killer! Xeninta said this thing is nothing but a creature of hate and rage!” Their leader said, they stopped cowering after that. This thing. It nearly broke my teeth! I must kill it!

 

I ran on all fours at it, another yellow thing appeared and blocked me. I tried to smash it down, but it didn’t work. They all attacked me with some kind of skill… fire, wind, insects… many things. It hurt a little… but they made me angrier! They will all die!!

 

“That thing is still alive?!” They began to despair again.

“We just threw everything we had at it!” They continued.

 

They talk too much for dead things. I ran at them, using my great speed. I hit them all hard. But they survived. Barely. The one with the yellow defence thing is crawling away. I decided to kill it first. How great that will feel.  Another hard thing hit me! One of those metal bodies those things use to travel. No thing can lift that weight!!

 

“Hey, scumbag. You want Bensinse you gotta get through me!” One of the things yelled. Male. Young. Dark skin. I hate it. I want to kill it.

I ran at it, but it didn’t cower. Suddenly all hard things began to wrap around it. Metal. It bended the metal around its body to become taller. It matched my height. It is silver now, made of metal. It punched me and I could not help but fall backwards. It has a hard body now. No matter, I will kill it.

 

I ran at it again, I clawed it and made a great dent in its metal skin. I can hear it panic through its heartbeat. It is desperate! Now I will kill it! It raises its hands at me; its hands glowed with a white light. I got hit by something! Energy?! It exploded. It nearly hurt me. When the dust settled I opened my mouth. My rage and hate manifested in it. I spat it at it, and it was engulfed in a real explosion! It did not expect that!

I got over to it, it’s not dead. The metal skin fades away. Leaving the fragile thing before me. It looked at me, begging for mercy! Ha! IT WILL DIE!! I claw at it while it screams! Blood flies everywhere! It feels so good! Not long after that I am hit with a barrage of skills. These things are angry, upset, that I killed one of them. Fools.

 

“Look what it did to Jaxus!  It killed him! We have to kill it!” They began yelling. The things continued to attack me. Worthless. All of them. I attack again, causing them all great injury. They are all bleeding now.

 

I'm going to kill them! They are all alive for one purpose; to die at my claws! All of them! They are backing away. Trying to get up. Pointless! I get to the closest one, smiling, growling. I want it to scream. I want it to fear death. I want it to fear me!

But it doesn’t fear… it looks at me. It is female, red hair, fragile. It is looking at me inquisitively. Why? Why does it not fear me? I roar inches away from its face. Now it screams! Now it fears me! I raise my tail to kill it. It cannot move out of fear! I will kill them all!

 

“Professor! Can you sense it too?” It speaks.

“I can… there are two minds here. Somebody is trapped deep within him” says another.

I look behind me and see another old one. The old one I saw in my mind earlier! It is here! It has come to die! I must kill it first!

“Jas, stay back. I will find this second mind and free it” it speaks again.

 

I charge at it, roaring, gleeful! I will kill it! I will… IT HURTS! I AM SCREAMING! MY HEAD IS ON FIRE! WHAT IS HAPPENING! IT WON’T STOP! I CAN’T MAKE IT STOP! THE OLD ONE! IT IS DOING THIS! I MUST KILL IT! I MUST! I TRY TO CLAW AT IT! THE PAIN! IT HAS INTENSIFIED! I MUST… I MUST… RETREAT… I CAN’T DEAL WITH IT!

Let him out you mindless monster’ something said.

WHAT DO I DO?! WHAT DO I DO?! I MUST… MUST RETREAT… MUST GO BACK… SAVE MYSELF… SWITCH PLACES… SWITCH WITH HIM… switch with him… switch with… me?

 

What is happening? I can see… I can breathe… I'm not in darkness… I'm in the real world? Who are these people I see… standing… over… me…?

 

It has gone black again.

The End
