9. The Darkness Comes

*Ash’s POV*

I hate him.

I’ll kill him.

I hate him.

The thoughts repeated in my mind and every now and then I’d glance at the windows of stores I was passing by. I saw my reflections and was terrified at what I’d look like. My eyes were no longer a color but pure black, my skin was pale and my hair was darker than ever.

I’m going to kill him.
The thoughts helped time fly by faster. I reached my house and there he was standing at the front door. He had his fists clenched just as I had mine and he knew what I had come to do. I knew what would happen if I killed him. I knew that I’d have to be on the run until I finally found my ways out of the borders of the Society and into the borders of The Hope. I knew what would happen to my name. I knew the humans wouldn’t care but the Sirens would. And after knowing all this I still didn’t care.

I ran up to him and pulled out my staff from my pocket. It expanded and the second it reached its full length I hit my father’s knees knowing it would send him down. I kneeled over to him and began punching him. And then I was lost. Everything was dark and I couldn’t see anything. I stood up and tried to find him as he had slipped from under me. I was terrified of what he would do to me now that I couldn’t see. I felt a hand on my shoulder and I knew it was him. I flipped him over and felt him hit the ground. Another crack I’ve heard today that was caused by my hand. I was lost, and I was scared.

“Ash don’t do it.”  I heard the peaceful and familiar voice. My mother. I followed her voice and reached out. The moment I felt her delicate hands I could see again.

This would hurt her. It would hurt her more to lose him than to lose me. After just standing there I fell down. My knees weakened and I began to cry. She grabbed me and hugged me trying to calm me down.

I knew what happened. The darkness came, Explains the appearance and the strength and the anger. If I let it in I would've been lost forever. I was worried and then I realized why my mother was comforting me. I would've been banned because of it. This stupid curse.

The darkness was trying to take me and I almost let it.
