As I laid there I took one hand and clutched my stomach; harder and harder I pressed trying expel the pain. My breathing deepened; long wheezing gasps followed by muffled moans escaping from the depths of this growing pain. Above me, the street light flickered till was out. The rain poured harder and I could barely keep myself. It went on... I went on like this.
Without resistance, my body gave way. My free hand broke my fall, but only for a moment as my face slammed against the ground. I let out one final scream, violently pleading for something... Anything... Knowing it would be to avail as the thunder cracked, drowning out whatever I had left in my pressing lungs. The winds began to pick up and I could no longer see but inches in front of me. The rain came down harder, and like sharp little icicles, I could feel my face being bitten away with each howling blast. As I lay motionless in the street, known only to be alive by the sharp infrequent breaths my body struggled to take. I felt a cold chill run through my body. Listening closely, I could hear a whisper in the darkness, calling to me.
"I can help you."
Said the voice in a most malevolent tongue. Looking up from the ground, I could see a figure standing in the darkness, inching closer and closer to my defeated and trembling body.
In my ear, the figure whispered, "I can make the pain alllll go away.... If you just take my hand."
I began to scream once again as I tightly clenched my fists and brought myself back to my knees. The thunder cracked again, streaking over us as I looked away from the figure in defiance. I kept a disdainful look knowing all too well that I had no other choice. I threw my hand in the air to meet his in the most reckless fashion and immediately felt the presence that had been suppressed inside of me for so long creep into what was left of my wilted self. Like being reborn, I stood and watched as the shade ran from my fingers, and spread through my body until I was cloaked entirely in this shroud of darkness.... until I was no more.
