[[You]] let go of the knife’s handle. [[You]] move with the speed of patience and pluck a stone from the ground at your feet. The demon sniffs the air, its eyes are square holes of green light - do they see [[you]]?
[[You]] throw the stone across the garden. It lands hard against the side of the fountain, a sharp sound like today becoming tomorrow. The demon’s eyes turn at once and the tall darkness surges towards the fountain, away from the gate.
The time is now. Escape is required.
[[You]] run through the leaves, keeping yourself low to the ground. The last few feet to the gate are uncovered, you run faster. The demon is already turning from the fountain, square-eyes already tracking your movement. [[You]] must hurry. [[You]] do not look back.
The gate is bronze but spoiled with green time. [[You]] rush through it.
[[You]] come face to face with the woman with red hair. She stands and watches you approach, her eyes as wide as the bronze gate. Her hands cover her mouth and she is speaking, but it is difficult to make out the words.
[[You]] reach out with your right hand but you do not know why. To push her aside, to comfort her, to---
The demon is upon you. You turn and see the right hand of the demon reaching for you, but you do not know why. It’s hand is a tree without leaf. The demon speaks although somehow you know it has no mouth.
It says, in words with no voice: -MONSTER- -BURN- -NEGATIVE- -REQUIREMENT- -NOW-
The words hang in your head and the demon’s hand is upon you. The woman with the red hair screams. [[You]] reach out with your right hand but you do not know why.
Two of the words feel correct. They feel like they belong to you. They feel like possessions.
Your hand touches the hand of the demon.
The demon’s hand is gone, evaporated. Ash and light howl away, but are instantly consumed by their own dying. The demon cowers back, clutching the stump of it’s arm, square-eyes vomiting green light.
The woman with the red hair screams.
You look at your right hand. You have found a word that seems to be a name inside of you. It is monster.
Escape is required.
