Darkness and a Girl
What defines a normal childhood? A normal family? A normal person? Its certainly not the way I was raised. Religious trauma. Emotional trauma. Mental trauma. So how did I manage to survive without killing myself, you ask? Simple. I made a deal with darkness.
e going to college to be a nurse. Its always in demand.
– You aren allowed to leave the house once you enter.
– You better be making straight As in class.
– Whatever happens within these four walls stays within these four walls.
– Why are you sad? Don you see how blessed you are?
– Just pray to God. Hell help you with your problems.
Unhelpful words. Impossible demands. Forced path in life. My entire being is simply a byproduct of my parents hopes and wishes. I never wanted this. I wanted to do more with my life.
Then why not do it?
”Huh? Whos there? ”
I have seen your sadness. I sympathize with your troubles.
”Who are you? ”
I am the darkness that you love to sit in. I have been shrouding you in my essence to hide your tears from the world so that no one can see your struggle until you
”What do you want from me? ”
I want nothing more than to see you smile earnestly, laugh heartily, and love yourself genuinely.
”Nothing good comes for free. Im not stupid. ”
Make a contract with me. I give you knowledge and power. You become my wife next year once you turn eighteen.
”Become the wife of darkness when I turn eighteen? What kind of nonsense is that? And what do you mean by knowledge and power? ”
You can hide anything from darkness because darkness is where people hide things. You have been trying to kill yourself before you turn eighteen because you didn want your parents to control your life anymore, and the only thing that you can control while under your parents is your death.
”Tsk… I can believe you a bit more since I am very confident in my ability to hide my struggle from everyone. However, Im a distrustful person. We have to get this contract into writing if you want to proceed any further. Plus, I have to see what you look like. It is only fair that I know what you look like since I have to marry you after this. ”
I have been told that I am a frightening person to look at. Are you sure you can handle seeing my appearance?
”I live in a house full of frightening parents. Your appearance won be a deterrent to this agreement since I will get more out of this than you. ”
A deep laugh bounces off of my walls throughout my dark room. As if absorbing the darkness itself, a cloudy appearance stands before my bed until it clears into a tall man of tan complexion. His white hair greatly contradicts the black room behind him. A rather large but slender hand stretches out in front of me.
”You should sit up so that you can have a better look at me. ”
I take the outstretched hand and begin to sit up on my bed when his face quickly becomes clearer as I get closer. A strikingly handsome face that looks as if it was sculpted with a beautiful balance of soft and sharp features. His golden yellow eyes shine brightly like the moon on a cloudless night sky. Everything about his appearance screams godly.
”I hope you know that your stare is piercing through me. Is there something about my appearance that you don like? ” the man asks with a genuine look of concern.
Snapping out of my trance, I close my mouth and clear my throat. ”Ah, no, not at all. When you said that you had a frightening appearance, I was expecting gore and disfigured features. You are actually extremely appealing to the eyes, or, at least, my eyes. ”
”Your compliment makes me very happy. ” The man snaps his fingers, and a piece of paper manifests next to him. ”This contract has both of our conditions written on it. I give you knowledge and power. You will become my wife when you turn eighteen next year. Is there anything you would like to add to it? ”
”Other than knowledge and power, you will also give me your time. You will come when I call for you. ”
The man tilts his head to my statement with a look of confusion. ”Isn that already a given though since you are my bride? Just because we won be officially married doesn mean that I will slack off in my duties as your fiancé. I will always be with you everywhere you go, so call me anytime you need me. ”
I admit that I was expecting him to disappear into the darkness after this and not show up. His words are oddly comforting, though. Knowing that there is someone who I can talk to whenever
