Erika ran and ran, she was breathing heavily. ‘I did nothing’ these thoughts were going through her mind. ‘I did nothing’. She ran in so much speed with all the strengths in her body. Jumping over rocks and turning behind again and again to see whether the cops who were following her are gone or not. Unfortunately, she begins to puff and started breathing a lot of air, like she was choking and needed water. Her mouth was dried and she could feel the dryness of her tongue getting rough to the skin inside the mouth. This decreased her speed and with a horror of getting caught, she walked on her knees and hid behind a big rock. She covered her mouth to stop the noises coming out because of her choking.
“Where did she go?” said of the sheriff
“let’s check out this way, chuck”
It was late at night, Erika didn’t know the time because her watch had fallen somewhere while she was running and hiding for sheriffs from 2 days. She closed her eyes and tried to control her hunger, the enzymes in the stomach has started to corrode from within and it was hurting a lot. Still helpless, she could not call anyone. What she could do? People were misunderstanding her and wanted her out of the society. But now, she just needed food!!!
She remembers a week ago, how she had found her friends murdered. That’s when this problem started and she was the first suspect. ‘Alone! Now am forever alone’ Tears rolled down her check as she was still hiding behind the rock in whim forest.
Left with no option, she had to come out for her daily bread. Eventually, she had started feeling nausea and dizziness, as if she was an old granny, she walked slowly, sweat socked in her dress and gave a foul smell.
After walking 1 km, she saw a beam of light coming among the trees. As she moved aside the leaves and saw clearly, she saw a house, not a house but a restaurant with a big board ’Dine In’. She ran and ran, to reach the restaurant as early as possible.
The lights were off and she lost all the hopes of getting something to eat. But, she noticed someone was moving inside. She knocked at the door.
“Dinner’s close, sorry” said a man from inside
“Please help me, please, just one plate of some food and nothing else” She begged
“Hmm” The boy who was in her twenties came and opened the door
“Ma’am, just wait, I’ll bring something to eat” he saw the poor girl and took sympathy on her “okay, come in”
Erika went inside; he looked after her as his customer.
“I can’t pay you, I don’t have money”
“Its fine” he took the plates to keep it inside the kitchen
Erika could see that the boy’s name was Jimmy, which was written on the badge of her shirt. She liked him; at least there was one person who is kind to her.
“Ma’am, what’s the matter, you should not be roaming outside in such bad condition. Did you have an accident?”
“No, but I can’t explain”
“Do you know sheriffs are looking for a maniac girl who had murdered some people last week like horrible?”
Erika was speechless now.
“If you want then I can drop you home”
“Sure, But I don’t have a home”
“You can sleep in my home, but in the morning you have to leave”
Erika got tears in her eyes. “Ma’am, just don’t cry”
“Can I hug you?” Erika stood to go near him “you’ve been so nice to me, I love you”
Jimmy held out his hands so Erika could hug him
She held him tightly and rested on his shoulder. He caresses her with his hands and waved it in her hair. “Stop crying, everything’s going to be okay”
“huh” Jimmy tucked this words out with a expression of horror and saw Erika’s face as she moved up her face from his shoulder and smiled at him like a monster. Her teeth were filled with blood and she had bitten Jimmy’s shoulder.
“Who are you?” Jimmy screamed as he shoved her away
“Am the maniac” She said like a devil
“You. You…” Jimmy was helpless as the bite was so deep, he just tried to run but slipped over and fall down.
Erika came and bit him in the neck and drank his blood. She started tearing his body like a piece of meat was in front of her.
In the morning, she threw her blood stained clothes in the dustbin and wore a pair of shirt and trouser she got from his home which was behind the restaurant. She brushed her teeth with Jimmy’s toothbrush and removed the bits of flesh from her teeth and cleaned the blood messed up in restaurant and hid the body. Then she went again on the hunt of her food!!!
So if you come across some alone lady who needs help beware she must be Erika!!!
