"Convinced myself, I seek not to convince."
- Edgar Allan Poe
Here’s what happened. I was driving to home for the weekend earlier this morning, my wife sitting in the backseat; I was so happy, my wife was going to have a baby tomorrow - I couldn’t fight off the smile – and we thought it’d be a great idea to have my child in the place where I was born, as she was from the big city and most hospitals there are busy 24/7. I drove for a few miles further, the landscape rushing by, and I looked back at my wife.
“Honey, I have a great idea for the name!”
Before I could express this idea, I looked out the window and I saw a figure in the black.
It was a yellowish, winged figure, leering at me from its position in the road. Somehow, I seemed to vaguely recall who it was and I turned the car before it smashed into a tree. I blacked out after I caught a glimpse of the figure flapping its wings and soaring off.
I awoke to see a pole from a billboard near the tree, stuck through the backseat; my wife wasn’t there.
“Rosetta?!” I called out into the smoldering abyss of trees and fog.
I needed to get out of here, to find my wife, so I took out a shard of glass from the broken windshield and cut my seatbelt as to allow me to exit the car; I struggled my way out of the door and began to walk down the road as fast as I could, albeit my being an injured man.
After about half-an-hour, I reached the town of Oldford. I grew up here, but it seemed almost entirely empty and devoid of its usual cheer. I ran inside the close building, which was a gas station, trying to find help.
No one, just like I thought. My pulse was quickening, and I was beginning to become uneasy. As I scrutinized the inside closely for any sign of human beings, I looked out the window to the nearby, slow-moving Stonefield River.
I was shocked.
Last time I was here, the bridge had been out after it grew tired like other bridges in West Virginia in the past. I couldn't believe it. A year ago there was a bridge there, an intact one, one which I actually began to walk across. The bridge was devoid of vehicles, and looked like it had stood for centuries under the reign of intense weather and age. Normally, the bridge would head to what people called the ‘slums’, although this town wasn’t particularly rich in the first place.
It was then that I heard a creaking noise.
I took the hint and backpedaled before sprinting right off the bridge as it fell and crashed in a cantankerous heap of metal, which than proceeded to be dragged down the river, plowing its banks. I covered my head as the screaming of alloy overwhelmed me for a second.
On this note I ran back into town, further pressing forward on the segment of highway that divided the town in two and served as a makeshift business strip that most of the town’s money makers were situated on.
It was empty, the whole place seemed to be awfully desolate. I walked into a nearby café to use their phone.
I picked it up, and dialed 911.
There was no ring.
I could hear the buzzing noise, and strangely enough I started to fall asleep; my head throbbing, I quickly left the store before falling on the ground. The last thing I saw before blacking out was, once again, the yellow figure.
I woke up, again, several minutes later to an apprehensive, oppressive feeling deep inside me.
I stumbled onward, entering a hostel, wondering if there would be anyone still in their rooms.
As I entered the lobby, I saw the yellow figure again gloat at me silently before disappearing up stairs. Giving in to my primitive urges, I followed it, and the fleeting creature vanished through a door. On the other side of the door I could hear a mattress creaking and a woman lapsing into a series of orgasms.
I opened it and, to my horror, I saw my old bedroom back home, with a doppelganger of myself, half-naked, banging away at someone else who wasn’t my wife, but instead a complete stranger I hadn’t met before. My doppelganger looked at me, before saying “What the fuck are you looking at?” in an embarrassed and angry tone of voice.
I backed away, my breathing becoming shallow. Something obviously was going terribly wrong; as far as I was concerned, this alternate, sex-crazed version of me was an obstacle in the quest to find Rosetta.
My wife and my baby were at stake.
At this point I kicked at a glass box (‘IN CASE OF FIRE BREAK GLASS’) on the wall, shattering it; I retrieved the axe and, adrenalin coursing through my veins, I ran and lunged at my doppelganger.
The woman screamed as I heaved the axe in my double’s side, causing him to fall off the bed and onto the floor headfirst. He tried to clamber away helplessly, but I climbed over the crying woman and brought the axe down was once again, severing off his head sloppily in a torrent of blood. I swung again, and again, and again, mangling the bastard’s face while screaming “You are not me, you motherfucker!!” I buried the axe in his chest before I fumbled across the carpet and fell down crying.
I looked around. The bed and the woman were gone; the only piece of furniture was a mirror, which I picked myself up off the ground to look at it. I advanced for it carefully and, upon closer inspection, the face wasn't mine. The face in the mirror was of a different man. This was the final straw; I swiftly exited the room, sobbing as the hotel’s double doors closed behind me.
I took a seat on a nearby bench to recollect myself.
“What's going on?” I said to no one in particular, before the buzzing happened again.
That goddamn buzzing. It filled my ears as the town became more eerie, like it was transforming. I promptly got up and I tried to escape the buzzing by entering the diner across the street.
I walked inside, to see an odd glow at one corner of the room; the glow diminished, revealing another doppelganger of mine eating what appeared to be a whole buffet. He looked at me as he crammed food into his mouth, and I returned to my position on the sidewalk, where the buzzing seemed to have stopped.
Walking further down the street, I saw a vision of me and a homeless man; he asked me for a dollar, and I gazed into his pocket where he already had reserved about a hundred dollars in cash. Instead of contributing to this fucker’s war fund, I spat on the homeless man mercilessly and continued on my journey. As the vision faded, I had the lingering feeling as though I was in hell. I could see a bench, with myself on it, just… sitting there. These freaky hallucinations were wearing me down, and I rubbed my tired eyes with my hand.
I sighed, the power of unhappiness effortlessly exerting its control on my mind. I walked past what I saw to be a bike shop; I heard voices coming from inside. With just a pinprick of hope, I meandered inside.
I could see a vision of myself punching and kicking my wife around the living room like some sort of fucking punching bag.
I was shocked; I couldn’t bear it. He didn’t notice me, so I rammed into him and thrust him off the balcony before he could protest, watching his descent and eventual splatter on the street.
I looked back. Predictably, the battered version of my wife wasn’t there, and looking down to the street, my second doppelganger was missing too.
I turned back and the room was no longer what it had been before; now it was what appeared to be a graveyard, although the only two graves present were those of my parents. The monster was standing behind me, looking at the back of my head with a grin on its yellowish face.
Without turning to face him, I asked “What do you want from me? I suffered enough... ” The figure approached me, its feet crushing. I was frozen in anticipation and in fear.
“Where’s my wife?” I demanded, stammering with nervousness.
It didn’t respond, instead whooshing right above my head and off into the sky. I lost my balance and fell. However, there was no ground to catch me; I kept falling and falling into the dark void, screaming.
"Love is so short, and forgetting is so long."
- Pablo Neruda

"I drink to our ruined house, to the dolor of my life, to our loneliness together; and to you I raise my glass, to lying lips that have betrayed us, to dead-cold heartless eyes, and to the hard realities; that the world is brutal and coarse, that God, in fact, has not saved us."
- Anna Akhmatova
"Girls have cooties, Fred. Didn't your older brother teach you?"
Frederick Nystrom was ignoring his acquaintance. That's what his mother told him to do in situations like this, anyways. His mother was a rather kind-hearted soul, very patient, especially when Fred's older brother David was drafted to go to Vietnam.
That was the first time his mother told him to ignore what was happening, actually. Fred's father was yelling at the entire household the day they got the letter. David assured that everything would be fine.
Now there was talk about a 'Tet Offensive' and his mother wouldn't stop crying when she read the newspaper. Father had already gotten his feelings out before; this time, he was the solemn one.
Fred was now the oldest son of the family, the oldest child in fact. Besides David, Fred had Simon, his younger brother.
Fred was relaying these facts in his mind when Gerald Trask, the class bully, asked the question again.
"Didn't your older brother teach you? My older brother taught me. 'Said you'd turn into a GIRL if you catch cooties. He's not an IDIOT like YOUR brother."
Fred silently scowled Gerry. The bully was a member of the same class, and on the first day of school, each member of said class had to exchange facts about themselves to further advance the school's agenda of community amongst the students. Gerry and Fred both had older brothers. What Fred didn't know was that David was just as much, if not a bigger bully when he was Fred's age.
Of course, David didn't dare to even lay a finger on Fred. As a matter of fact, it was around the time that Fred could actually communicate that David began to play a bigger role in his life. Father had work to tackle, thus David was the man of the house the majority of the time. In short, David was more of a father than Father was.
Gerry's older brother, holding a grudge of misery for the former year, had told Gerry to go pick on someone vulnerable. And what better subject than someone who was chatting with one of the opposite gender?
At this point, the girl in question was livid, although she tried to disguise it.
"Wow. Mom did say that you boys were immature.... I just wanted to talk about The Beatles playing, or something, you know?"
"The Beatles? You mean that GIRLY music? I guess Fred really IS a girl, isn't he?" Gerry sneered.
Fred was dead silent. The girl glared at Gerry in anger before speaking through gritted teeth. "Or maybe he just likes what his mother listens to. Right, Fred?"
Fred nodded as Gerry clamped his hand on Fred's shoulder, his face that of a father about to give the Talk to his son. "It's what happens when your dad isn't there... you turn into a girl, Fred. You turn into a BITCH."
On the last word, the end-of-recess bell rang, followed by multitudes of screaming children running for the classroom doors to begin second period; math class. Thus, Gerry's dirty word went unheard and, in turn, nonexistent.
The two would cross paths again in class, when the order of the moment was to hand out tests. The teacher asked for volunteers, as usual, and naturally none of the children raised their hands.
"Fred, would you hand out the tests?"
As Fred racked his brain trying to deduce how he had offended the teacher as his feet moved to the desk by themselves. The teacher gestured toward a stack of papers and Fred obliged.
When Fred arrived at Gerald Trask's desk, he was overcome with a surge of mixed anger and disgust. Gerry, in response, happily stuck out his tongue.
Fred was boiling.
Delighted with how the events were proceeding, Gerry gleefully opened his mouth.
"My brother says people like you are QUEERS."
That was it. The ultimate middle school insult: 'You're gay!' Fred ripped off a page of the bully's test, to which the bully became irritated.
"Mr. Cartwright, may I use the stapler please?"
"Yes, Fred. And be more careful next time, will you?"
"Yes, Mr. Cartwright."
Fred arrived back at Gerry's desk with a wide smile and eyes full of malice.
Mr. Cartwright did a double take when he heard a bloodcurdling scream from across the room. Sitting in his chair, frozen with apprehension, he peered across the room to see Gerald Trask writhing in torment. Tears were filling his eyes and soaking his face, mingling with the blood that was trickling from the staples in his forehead; he was wheezing loudly and shrieking at the very top of his lungs, like a little girl. He then moved his eyes to the usually quiet and reserved Frederick Nystrom, who was now stapling Gerry's hand to the desk. All while this was happening, no student dared to intervene.
"Who's the queer NOW, bitch!?" Fred seethed, his attention beyond the horrified stares from his now-shuddering classmates.
"Draw a crazy picture,
Write a nutty poem,
Sing a mumble-gumble song,
Whistle through your comb.
Do a loony-goony dance,
Across the kitchen floor,
Put something silly in the world,
That ain't been there before."
- Shel Silverstein
Fred stood at the edge of his seat. He had his hands plastered onto the rails.
The incident in '68 had absolutely no impact on him, as he was given a probation and came back to school. Shortly after, he graduated from college.
Fred stepped off the bus, he had his briefcase in his right hand. The dark colored snow was from the coal plant and paper mill. He placed one of his cigarettes in his mouth and lit it. Fred stood at the edge of his house, fixing his tie. He then started to knock on the door.
The door opened to his mother. "Oh, Fred! You're home!" His mother reached her arms out to hug him, and he extended his arms to accept it. "Hey Ma, where's Dad?" His mother shrugged her shoulders, "He's at the grocery store getting food. Come in and see the family!" Fred walked into the living room, his older brother David sitting on the couch. "Oh, look who it is? The Big City Man!"
"Go fuck yourself, hillbilly."
David stood up. "Hey, fuck you."
Fred smirked cheekily at him. "Last time I heard about you, you were getting your fucking ass kicked by the Vietcong in those Laotian jungles. How fun was it to shit into a trench every-time you needed to dump your load?" David scowled, "Says you, living in your big hotels and your silver screens." Fred shrugged his shoulders, "I'm going to pretend I didn't hear that." Fred walked back out of the living room to his bedroom.
He sat down on his red-sheeted bunk bed, his 11-year-old brother below him. "Hey Fred, you back?"
Fred looked down. "Hell yeah, I am."
His brother smirked at him. "Hey, ugh. You didn't hear about Trask did you?"
Fred looked up.
"Gerald Trask? What happened?" Simon looked down at him, "Ugh...He and his family were murdered a few days ago. Fred looked down, "Huh... he was an asshole, but nobody deserves to die." Fred laid his head on his pillow, the darkness from outside almost shining in. The moon circulated around the sky.
Fred closed his eyes, shaking himself around. Something was bugging him. He lifted his head up, looking about. "Ugh, what time is it?"
The alarm clock showed 3:00. (?) Fred got up, and walked out to the kitchen to get a snack. Passing into the living room, he saw all the lights on. His father sat down at the leather couch. Fred looked at his dad.
"Hey Dad, how've you been?"
Richard looked up to Fred. "I got laid off at work...I've worked there for 30 years, and now I'm unemployed." Fred opened the fridge, taking out a Budweiser can. He opened the tab, taking a swig.
"Well, that's shitty luck. You check the classifieds?"
Richard scowled. "I'm not going to get another job...I'm retired now. But you...You've got a job, haven't you?" Fred shrugged. "My job working as an office clerk isn't the worst job ever." Fred took another sip from the Budweiser can, looking down at Richard's legs. He noticed a large amount of beer cans gathered around his father like some kind of perverted congregation. "You've been drinking, haven't you? You want to go to bed?" Richard stood up, shakily. "Fucking touch me and I'll kick your ass." Richard took off his leather belt.
"You're getting a spankin' boy. Just like the good old days." His brain spun rapidly. Fred shook the disposition out of his head, pushing his father back onto the couch. "Get the fuck off me!", barked Richard as he lunged at Fred, tackling him onto the ground, smacking Fred's head into a drawer. "Prick!", said Fred, holding his Father back. Richard started to deliver punches down onto Fred's face. Fred's nose started to bleed before he tossed Richard off.
Something ticked him off. Fred walked into the kitchen. reached into the pantry. Taking out a boning knife. The voice inside his head shouted, "DO IT! KILL HIM!" Fred lunged at Richard, placing the boning knife in Richard's throat. Pulling it out, he delivered another blow to the head. He slammed himself back into the corner, the pit swallowing himself onto the ground. Fred took the knife, the voice inside rung out. "Now, don't leave witnesses." Fred smacked his head off the pantry, "Get the fuck out of my head, you sick cunt!" The Voice shattered, "Do it." Fred swung back into his killer form.
Fred walked into David's room, knocking on the light. The knife drenched in blood. David closed his eyes, blocking the light from his eyes. "Ugh, what do you want?" Fred sat down on David's torso. Stabbing him in the chest multiple times. "Ah!" David's face was drenched in blood as the knife reaching down into his stomach. Fred slammed his way into his Mother's room and pulled the large TV from the room out of the chords. His mother closed her hands over her face. Fred smashed the TV on her face. Killing her instantly.
Fred finally kicked his way into Simon's room. "Simon, Olly Olly Oxen-Free!" Simon cowered behind the bed. Fred burst in, looking at Simon. "Simon, I can't hurt you...But you are going to rat me out." Fred pulled Simon onto the bed. Simon started to scream. Fred pulled out Simon tongue, cutting it out from his mouth. Fred started to slice off Simon's hands. Simon started to cry painfully. No being able to issue a word without his tongue. Fred stood over Simon, "I did this for you." Fred walked out of the house, placing the knife in a drain. "Nobody will find it." Fred started to make a dash into the woods. From there he was free, but he wasn't was he?
