Hey babes, this is pretty short but REALLY needed, please enjoy ;-)
I had decided to take a walk.
A long walk.
A long walk, that I happened to get lost on.
There were many trees around me, and the only thing I could think of was to turn around and walk the way I had come.
If only I could remember.
Not only was I dumb enough to walk to a place I'd never been, but I also didn't bring my phone.
My plan was to get away from everything, including technology. The only thing that could help me right now.
"Fuck fuck fuck." I muttered, kicking a tree and later- holding my foot and wincing.
"Now that wasn't very lady like, Y/n, now was it?" A deep voice questioned.
I jumped, looking all around me, "Who's there?"
"You don't remember me? You should. After all, you did have my son practically weeping out his life story to you." The voice sneered.
I felt my whole world stop.
Does he mean-?
This must be Michaels father.
"Ah, so you DO remember!?" He 'chuckled', suddenly walking out of nowhere, "Let me properly introduce myself." He cleared his throat, sticking a hand out toward me, "I'm Daryl Clifford, Michael's father."
I gaped at him, eyes unblinking and heart racing.
He shrugged and brought his hand to meet his other behind his back, "Eh, I already know who you are anyways."
A tiny bolt of confidence coursed through my bones as I stood straight and gained my breath back, "And who might that be?"
"The little slut who fell in love with my little monstrosity." He snickered, circling me.
"Excuse you?" Rage filled me, "You have no room to be calling ANYONE any type of names, especially since-" within one breath, I was pushed against a tree, his hand around my throat.
"Remember who you're speaking with, wouldn't wanna send you back to where you belong." He mused.
I slightly looked down, a little voice in my head going 'please, please send me back'
"Oh?" The man, Daryl, laughed, letting go of my throat, "Well that's definitely fucked up."
I arched my eyebrows, "You can read my mind?"
"I am VERY powerful, little girl." He smiled, "Can't exactly say that I'm shocked. You do seem a little under the weather. You wanted me to kill you, you want to die again, don't you?"
"N-no." I stuttered.
"Liar." He hissed, slapping me forcefully, "DONT LIE TO ME!"
I stayed still, shocked that Daryl would act out so quickly.
"You can always go back, Y/n..." He thought loudly.
"H-how?" I asked softly, rubbing my cheek.
"Well, no shit." I sassed, immediately sucking in air, expecting another hit.
He laughed loudly, almost wiping away tears, "Sassy." He walked closer to me, "The sassy ones are harder to break, hmm?"
"Then why'd you break, so easily?" He smirked.
Shame was brought down on me. I didn't break easily. I just got tired.
"There's only one more thing that you'd need to do and all your emotions, all your pain; it can all go away." He faked looking sincere.
"What is it?" I asked, hurriedly.
"Oh, darling. It isn't that simple." He wrapped a strand of my hair around his finger and watched it twirl, "You'll have some..... things... to do first."
"Of course." I lightly smiled.
"The pain hurts that much?" He asked, stopping the motion of my hair.
I huffed, "I hurt more than I have in my entire life."
"What does it feel like?" He seemed to be getting a kick out of my pain, but I didn't care.
I just wanted to know what could make it all go away, "Suffocating. Like I'm under water, and I can see the surface teasing me, but I'm just getting pulled further and further downward."
"Ouch." He voiced, "I can almost feel your heart beat straining."
I stood in silence. Right now, I was no longer intimidated by Daryl, I wanted to know his offer.
"There is a way." He paused, "You'll be able to return to the underworld and you'll be able to turn off your hurt."
"Please! Tell me! I'll do anything!" I whined.
