Now was the time I had to decide what my next plan of action would be. From the way things were going, it was starting to become obvious that Melissa couldn’t go back to being a normal girl, that she was no longer a normal human.
I had to see her in a new, darker kind of aspect. I started to have twisted thoughts as she was twisting her body back into place. There were so many things that didn’t make sense, but it didn’t matter right now.
Right now, I had to save myself.
Looking at the door was a mistake. When I looked back at the tree, Melissa was gone.
My eyes scanned every leaf on that tree, keeping a lookout for the slightest of movement. Everything remained still.
Whoever Melissa was beforehand, that little-girl identity, no longer existed. In its place was a monster trapped inside the body of a child.
