Into the Living Part 6

Into the Living - Chap 1 Part 6


I’d leave to avoid whatever life this boy had but this body was so weak and after using my materialization technique. I could hardly lift this new head of mine to see these human’s faces as they dragged me out the door. Using my abilities too soon after death must’ve been the breaking point for this fragile vessel.

Humanity was too fragile.

How could I, the second son of seven, be brought to such a state of being?

I am now a Being…

But only in part so I shall continue my mission and then return to my throne. Yes, I’ll continue and then return. This was only temporary.

“Mom.” My head lay on her lap in the backseat of the vehicle.

“Yes?”

“What if he barfs on me?” She looked down at my vacant eyes. All I could do was stare absently.

“You’re easy to clean, the car isn’t. So you’d better hope he barfs on you instead of the car.”

“What?” She acted surprised, “What is this?”

“What’re you talking about?”

“He has fresh burns on his face.” Her hand lifted to brush the hair behind my ear to see the end of my father’s mark. Such soft hands. They glazed across my burn and a loud noise echoed within the car.

“What did you do?!” Her mom pressed the gas pedal in panic.

“I…I touched it.” Her hand was held within her other hand looking at it in shock. It was as if she were punishing her hand for touching me.

“Why did you do that? It could get infected!”

“I don’t know. I just… I just felt I had to. Mom hurry, I think I did something bad. His neck is bleeding!”

“We’re almost there. Tell him to hang in there.” I could sense her grip on the steering wheel and the tension in the car made my new body hum.

This was what I was looking for.

I craved to feel them excite and tighten their muscles in an act of compensation for the wrong in their life. How boring it was to have them just sit there like puppets feeling sorry for themselves.

“How beautiful.” The words escaped my lips as I felt the car continue to fill with anxiety. How wonderful.

“Don’t leave. Hold on!” She took my face in her hands and stared deeply into my eyes, “You have a choice to live.” Her eyes swelled with moisture.

This too was beautiful.

  2. This is so intriguing! I want to know more about who the Being is. And what happens with the injured boy? Will he survive? Or will the Being find another body? But it said, "Humanity was too fragile", so it might not want to continue. Wow. Very cool, Stevie.

  3. This is a great read so far. I just love the descriptions and the ironic tone of the piece so far. This story is truly fascinating. It's like life from the point of view of the walking dead, as told by a spirit.
