X I

X I

By A Person

When I started to feel lonely, I knew that night was approaching.

Night.

The darkness of a house falling into the shadow of such a lonely, small, young planet. It wasn't safe. The darkness, the dark, the absence of light...

Night brings everything from the day back through your mind. There's one safe place to remember.

The hole under the stairs was dark as I slid into it. I locked the tiny door behind me and huddled against the far corner. My skirt bunched up around my ankles like a blanket, keeping me warm while the sun slowly left.

Today Taylor didn't talk to me even once. Jack was scared as always, like the baby he is. He's such a boy. Evan tried to talk to me, but I ran away.

Emily is still locked away in her room with Mrs. Albert like she has been ever since I became me.

This was today.

I've lost count of the days.

The dark pours through the keyhole and between the cracks in the wall. The sun has set. Night is here.

The screams begin.
