The Pure One

Safi is a 15 year old, brown eyed girl. Now to you and me that seems perfectly normal, but the year is 2156. Having Brown Eyes is a bad thing; especially when their are Monstra about. Having to stay in the Corridors and face her Induction scares Safi to death. She wants to run away and escape the horrors that face her, but are there more horrors out there than there are in the Corridors?


8. The House

Chapter 8 –The House


I did it Dad. I did it for you. Ever since I was little, we always discussed running away and you had always told me that you would ‘Be There’ for me, and you were. Thank you.

                I have taken refuge in an old house. It looks like it had been evacuated years ago, right at the start of the Satanist movement when people started to flee underground for refuge. It’s weird being here because the house has been left virtually the same as it was. Old photos adorning the shelves out of date food cans in the cupboards and homework just left on the table. Then again who would want to take homework with them? Anyway it’s like you can feel the people around you – like you could imagine what they would do, how the children would run around the couch, how the mother would stand at the hob cooking dinner. It’s really strange, it’s like I can see their ghosts.

                I’m going to set up a bed now because I don’t want to sleep in one of the families’ ones, because I personally think it is just wrong… sleeping in a possibly dead persons bed? It’s creepy. I’m going to light a fire as well because apparently it is one of the only things that scare of roaming Monstra and in the morning I’ll carry on walking as far as I can – so there is no chance whatsoever that I can be found by mum, because as soon as she finds me I’ll have to go home with her. I couldn’t completely turn my back on her, I love her. I always planned on going home at some point, in a couple of years when my Induction is an old fantasy and I can lie and say that I have met my Demon already whilst I was travelling or something like that. They’ll never know because I only have to Vocans once to get it over and done with and my eyes would return to brown after a while so they would think I did it once ages ago. Until they asked me to prove it.

                I better go I want to get enough sleep as I can within a few hours because everyone will soon notice I’m gone. I think I’m far enough away for them not to find me for at least a day but I’m going to set an alarm just in case. 4 hours sleep that’ll be enough and then I can carry on going and I’ll always stay a couple of steps ahead of them, and after a few days, they’ll give up thinking that I have been taken by the Monstra. They’ll move on, start again, it’ll be ok.
