The Other Place
I knew it!”. I flinch as her words hit me. “I knew you were sneaking out together so that you could…” She makes a noise like the last part of her sentence is dammed up against the inside of her mouth.
Mina and I slide closer together. “Why are you here, Rebekah?” I ask. “Are you here to stop my enlightenment?”
“I’m here to stop you from being led into Hell! To try to save you from this…from…” The gravel crunches as she stomps. The moonlight glints ghostly off her contorted features. I’m holding Mina’s hand, and I can feel her tense up.
“I’m not leading him into Hell, Rebekah,” Mina says. “Are you serious? This is none of your business.”
“It is my business,” Rebekah says.
My ears ring as the Dark Energy sings a bad note. I want to run, but I can’t leave Mina, and I think it’s too late to run away from the trap anyway. I squeeze my eyes shut. “Please don’t trap me,” I plead. “Please let me go, let me go.”
“Justin is innocent and has been chosen by God, and you’re corrupting him and causing him to sin!” Rebekah says. She steps forward so that she’s very close to Mina, who clutches my hand.
The Dark Energy is pulling hard at me now, and I’m having difficulty breathing. I keep begging, but the Dark Energy is hissing about Hell and sin and doesn’t listen. Its slimy dead fingers caress me very horribly and the smell of decay oozes all around.
“Did you know he has visions?” Rebekah says. “Do you know God sends him messages and teaches him lessons? He probably hasn’t told you that, because you’d laugh at him. You’d call him crazy like his mother does, and wouldn’t understand what it means. You don’t know how special he is. You’re just some whore who wants to sleep with him because he’s hot!”
Mina lets go of my hand now, but I hardly notice. The Dark Energy is covering my eyes. It’s pulling me in, away from this, but into something much worse. I hear Mina scream something in Rebekah’s face, and I see Rebekah hit her, and then I don’t see or hear them anymore because I’m gone. The Dark Energy has me, and it’s burning me up.
