I was born with a curse, one that some call a ‘unique gift’. Where the normal human sense would pick up the strange smell of burning rubber and sulphur in unusual places, I could see the demon itself, yeah! I could see and hear angels, demons, and ghosts
There I was at the diner as usual, minding my business as usual, when I saw a pretty lady seated alone, rather than have demons about her, she had a beautiful and
As I drew, I looked around the diner, so many demons tempting their humans to go talk to the pretty lady, but for some unknown reason the
“Hey Danny” Someone called me. I looked up to find Cara, my neighbor next door
“Hi Cara” I responded
“Hey Danny Yo! Has Cara filled you in?
“Yo pretty Mamacita, ya know your pretty ass ain’t turning up late for the road trip to Ohio tomorrow”
“I’m in” I told her.
“Wow! Danny you’re a lifesaver” Cara said as she hugged me. Oh well! Remember when I said I was loved by many, but friend to none, yeah! This was one of those situations.
The next day, ten of us was on the bus taking us to Ohio, and of the ten, I only knew the faces of Joe, Cara, and the pretty lady from the diner. It wasn’t a pretty sight on the bus, I just wondered the scene if the occupants of the bus could just get a glimpse
“You don’t talk much, do you?” She asked me.
“I try” I said with a smile.
“Oh well, I’m Charlotte” She said, as she offered a handshake
“Danny” I said
“You are different from the rest”
“And how do you know that?” I asked.
“And you feel comfortable telling me?” I asked, because I had never felt comfortable telling people what I could see.
I took her hand, and there was something that felt like a glitch effect and I saw differently, in place of demons, I saw auras, all negative auras, it felt better than seeing
“Oh my God!” She exclaimed, while gasping for air.
“Oh my God!” She exclaimed, while gasping for air.
“What’s the matter?” I asked
“I – I was able to also see through your eyes too” She answered
“How do you cope?” She asked.
“Well, I’ve become used to it, so it doesn’t bother me anymore” I answered.
“Wow! now I see why you don’t talk much” She said, and I shrugged.
“Yo Danny! What’s up? Hey Charlotte, how’s ya doing?” Joe asked from across
The rest of the journey was filled with weird conversations with Charlotte, and by weird, I mean we were not having the usual conversations a lady and guy meeting the first time would have. It was a long drive, and for some unknown reason,
Helltown was a ghost town with so many spine-chilling, blood-curdling, scary stories about Satanists and their human rituals, a chemical accident that created undeads, a chemically mutated python, and ghosts. It seemed like I was the
“Are y’all sure about chilling here? I ain’t seen a soul here, looking like a freaking ghost town” Joe said as he looked around.
“That’s because it is really a ghost town” I replied
. In no time there was a heated argument about the existence of spiritualism, ghosts, angels and demons. Some were of the opinion that there was a spiritual side to our existence, even if their premise for believing was somewhat warped, and the others were the
“Alright guys, let’s get some wood to start a fire, so we don’t freeze to death out here” Cara said
“Or get eaten by wolves” Another member of the group said with a laugh
“Screw you Anny, if I get eaten, you’re so skinny you’ll be used as the toothpick, or maybe, just maybe you’ll be the skewer” Brandon
“Ohhhh shots fired! I repeat shots fired!!” Joe cheered Brandon on.
Another argument broke out, and it was beginning to look like a fight would happen. Two howls from a distance, and everyone became quiet.
“There’s so much negative energy here” Charlotte whispered in my
“So many demons at work” I whispered back, then I looked at her angel looking as radiant as ever. You see there are a lot of things about the spiritual world that can never be explained with science, science could not explain how it was possible that I was seeing what I
“Did y’all hear that?” Joe asked. No one responded.
“We need to get some wood to start a fire” Cara added
“Where?” Joe asked
“The woods, dude” Brandon said, as he stood up and went in the direction of the woods.
“To get some wood from the woods” Brandon said.
“Oh and get yourself killed in the process. Well done Brandon, well done” Anny added.
“I’ll go with you Brandon” I said
“I’m coming with you” Charlotte added
“Urgh! I’m coming too” Anny said
“Oh please fatso” Anny replied
“Guess I’ll come along too, I don’t feel so safe with only these people” Goethe said, pointing at the three others who were already at the
“Thought you didn’t believe in them ghost shit?” Joe asked Goethe
“This isn’t about ghosts, it’s about wolves and survival” Goethe answered
“Nah Bro, you’re just scared, but you’re welcome to enlist in our army of wood fetchers” Joe said with a laugh.
“Can I see?” Charlotte whispered in my ears, and I knew what she meant.
“As long as you don’t freak out” I whispered back.
“Alright, let me know if I’ve got an angel or demon with me, ‘cause there’s a beautiful but fierce angel with you.” I whispered.
“Yeah I know, she’s my bestie” Charlotte whispered
“What are you two whispering about?” Anny asked
“About angels and demons” I answered.
“And I’m the scared one” Goethe said with a chuckle
“Guys it’d be best if we split up, gather what we can and head out of here” Brandon said.
“Yeah, ready to see?” I asked in a hushed tone
“Yeah” She said. We held hands, and I could see through her eyes, there were only black and red energies, not just from the other 5 people, but from around us, like there were more
“Guys, let’s just go back and everyone stays in the bus” I said
“Why?” Cara asked
“’Cause terrible things are about to happen” Charlotte answered.
“And how do you know this?” Brandon
“Shit! Shit!! Shit!!! Brandon you brought us in here, Brandon? Brandon?” Joe called frantically. We all turned our flashlights to where Brandon had been standing
“Oh my God! The hell happened to Brandon? I’m calling 911” Anny said, she got her phone out, and there was no cell coverage, same thing on all of our phones.
“What do we do? Search for Brandon or go check on the others? Cara asked
