Your Own Worst Enemy

Miranda is the daughter of one of the most famous actresses in the world, but her life is far from fabulous. The girls at school bully her mercilessly. Yet that is not her worst problem. Adnarim, a malevolent spirit, follows her around, and embodies the people who put her down. But who is Adnarim? And how will Miranda ever learn to stand up to the real bullies when she can't even battle her worst enemy: herself. EDIT: In case anyone is wondering, Witzelsucht is a rare illness where a patient makes inappropriate puns or jokes at bad times. The sufferers finds these jokes amusing despite this.

4. Enemy

The knife is cold. I grip the hilt tightly, because my hands are sweating so much I’m afraid I’ll drop it. I don’t take my eyes off hers.

            She smiles, a half twisted smile, as if she knows this is the end for her.

            “You still don’t understand, do you?” she whispers.

            “Enlighten me,” I reply, my voice bold, confident. In a few moments, Adnarim will be dead, and I will be free.

            I don’t allow myself to think about the other thing. How if she dies, I might die as well. Because then at least I wouldn’t have to deal with her, with the people like her. Those bullies at school, with their perfect hair, and their perfect smiles. If I die, I want to come back for the briefest of seconds, just so I can see their faces when they know they are the ones who killed me.

            I want to haunt them for the rest of their lives. I want them to suffer as I’ve suffered, feel the pain, the anger, the self loathing I’ve felt since the moment I met them.

            Slowly, I move towards Adnarim.

            “They wouldn't care, you know. If you died, they wouldn’t care. No one would care. In fact, they’d probably laugh. After all, you know they have no feelings. You know your own mother doesn't love you.”

            “Shut up!” I scream. “Shut up, shut up, shut up!”

            And I plunge the knife into her chest.
