3. The Hunger

No. That smell... It was so familiar. And dangerous. I stopped dead in my tracks and turned around but the smell was overwhelming. I gasped for breath, dying for fresh air that wasn't contaminated. I couldn't let myself fall into the temptation that this delicious smell brought. Holding my breath I walked back to the park and was relieved that Mathias has left. The smell was gone and I was able to breath well again. Although I felt my eye changing.

That was close. Sighing I decided that it was too dangerous to be outside where my hunger would be peaked to its fullest. When I got near the house I ran to inhuman speed and jumped in the opened window that lead to my room. I silently landed on my feet and closed the window.

Breathing heavily I leaned against the wall, my hunger must be taking its toll on my body now. Soon I would be dead and gone, not a monster anymore. I wonder if my spirit- if I had one- would be forgiven and allowed in heaven. I felt a bloody tear run down my cheek and I wiped it away.

If I was to die so soon, I should be with my family. Give them one last good memory before I couldn't anymore. I got up and opened the door and walked down to the living room. Mom was sitting on the couch watching a movie and my sister was there with her. Dad must be in his office working still.

"Hey." I silently said and they both looked at me in shock. I have not spent time with them for a very long time.

"Hey honey. How are you feeling?" Mom asked me. I smiled and then sat down.

"Great mom. I think I'm getting better." I told her and she smiled at me in return.

"Good enough to go to school tomorrow?" She asked, always her typical self. She wanted us to have a good education and get somewhere in life. So going to school was a high priority. Unless you almost came to death or in my case had already died.

I smiled again and chuckled. "Maybe. What are you guys watching?" I said, trying to change the subject. She seemed to have gotten the hint and told me it was a movie on some channel. I nodded and started to watch it when dad came in. Something smelled really good and I looked at him. He was carrying a tray of chocolate covered fruit.

"Oh hey honey. Finally out of your room? That's great." He said and sat down beside me. I smiled than noticed a small band aid on his thumb. A blotch of blood was stained on it, meaning it was a fresh cut. I stared and felt really hungry again, and I noticed that I didn't have my eye patch on.

Hastily I stood up and stared walking away. I just could not get a break today. It's like life itself was testing my strength against hunger. "Where are you going?" Ami asked. I didn't bother to stop walking away.

"I am tired." I said and bounded up the stairs two at a time. Ami sigh reached my ears and I closed my door. My breath came out heavy and I fell to the ground. It felt like my stomach was going to eat me instead. A moan passed my lips and I could still smell his blood, his flesh. I started to cry as I felt my teeth sharpen and my eye change. I was ready to devour everyone I see.

I conjoined up the strength to walk and I went to the window. I knew that if I didn't get out soon I might kill my family. The people I love. Crying I rushed outside and started running. The smell of flesh and blood consumed me and I was so hungry. I screamed and felt dizzy, I couldn't stop myself. I might not stop myself for killing.

"Alice?" A voice broke through my hunger and I realized I was in a small clearing that Mathias was in. He had a girl with him who looked scared and embarrassed. I didn't realize what was happening but I could only look at her naked flesh. The flesh that could help me live, that could stop my pain.

The next thing I knew I was biting into the girl, eating her flesh. Her warm and delicious blood trickled down to my neck and I moaned. I couldn't help it. I continued to eat and devour the human until I felt happy and on top of the clouds. Even after that I couldn't stop, I couldn't not eat.

"Alice? Stop. Please. She's dead." It was Mathias' voice. I stopped and looked towards him. Reality came crashing down and I started to cry. "It's ok Alice. You must have been starved. It's ok." He said in a hushed tone. Confused I looked him in the eyes and noticed his was black with red irises. "It's ok."
