9. The Monster In Me
I was full of confusion and I tried to make everything out. I started running out the church. My heart pumped and colours flew past me as I ran past people I ran up the street and started across the road. I heard a honk and turned to it a red four wheel drive was coming at full speed toward me. Everything seemed to slow down. I reached out to touch it and felt a hundred eyes on me, I didn't touch it nor did I fly back, this was no blackout or dream, it was real. There was little space between us. Then it bounded away from me millimetres away from me, with it, a coloured wave of strength from within myself. It landed metres away from me. I turned toward the crowd of people gathered for Joel's funeral. Johnny's jaw had dropped, most of the audience looked at me with fear, then I saw Paige. She was terror stricken and had a few tears on her face. Some people ran away. A man yelled, "monster!" Johnny's parents grabbed him and his sister. Paige stood their and stared. She started backing away. Then I stepped forward toward her then a crack split the road in half. Paige screamed and coved her mouth, her tears staining her face. She ran away. My knees gave way and I made a crater in the ground. I was a monster. And I was growing stronger by the second.
