    IN MY HEAD

    Chapter 1: Ticking Away
    I don’t know what’s wrong with me.
    I don’t know who I am, or why I’m here. My face stings at what seems to be a wound, and as I reach out to touch it, my hand touches something warm. Blood.
    What happened to me?
    The sky overhead is dark, and layered with clouds. The moon is nowhere to be seen. A wolf howls, somewhere out in the woods.
    I try not to, but I am reminded of him.
    I fight to stay conscious, but the terror is too much; its like trying to swim with 5 sandbags. Fear encloses me like a thick curtain, and I surrender to its long, cold arms, as I fade into nothingness…

    FLASHBACK (One hour earlier)
    I look at the clock.
    Tick, tick, tick.
    15 minutes to midnight. 15 minutes to death.
    Tick, tick, tick.
    Time to hunt.
    Tick, tick, tick.
    I slowly move along the wall, and make a beeline for the stairs.
    Tick, tick, tick.
    I step on the first step.
    Tick, tick, tick.
    I raise my head and grin at the door at the end of the stairs.
    Tick, tick, tick.
    Lifting my head, I start singing in a hoarse voice.
    Tick, tick, tick.
    “Lilah Berenstain took an axe,
    She gave her father fifty whacks.
    When she saw what she had
    done,
    She gave her mother 51.”

    Tick, tick, tick.
    I am now at the door.
    Tick, tick, tick.
    I open the door and resume my singing, in a whisper.
    Tick, tick, tick.
    “Don’t worry, Mother dear,
    I’ll bury you with Father near,
    At your funeral, I promise I’ll
    weep,
    Though I’m the one putting you to
    sleep,
    Hurry up now, don’t make me
    delay,
    I’ll still kill you whatever you say,
    Quickly, parents dear, say your
    goodbyes,
    It’s 15 minutes to midnight and
    you’re going to die.”

    Tick, tick, tick.
    I take my dagger out. And slit the throat of the person on the east side of the bed.

    “Goodnight and goodbye, Mother.” I kiss her forehead, tears falling.

    I plunge the knife into the mass of body on the other side.
    Tick, tick, tick.
    “Goodbye and goodnight, Father.” I say, fighting tears. “Sleep tight.
    Tick, tick, tick.
    I leave the room, and then I’m running, out, out in landing.
    Tick, tick, tick.
    I grip the dagger tightly, knuckles turning white.
    Tick, tick, tick.
    I slash it down.
    Drip, drip, drip.

          this part:
          “I take my dagger out. And slit the throat of the person on the east side of the bed.

          “Goodnight and goodbye, Mother.” I kiss her forehead, tears falling.”
