A Demon's Child - Part 10 (Season Finale)

  After the gruesome incident at McKinley warehouse, Ellie and Flint had been rained by questions, interviews and tabloids. They couldn't live in peace. Everyone was asking them preposterous questions about the vicious murders and making defamations about them. The news were telling stories about them, every single thing was absolutely bashing them.
  "...gruesome murders that had been reported lately..."
  "...involving two students of McKinley High..."
  "...only suspects..."
  "...telling such a fairytale story about a demon..."
  "...a monster that murdered everybody..."
  "...assumed that they are on drugs..."
  "...absurd hallucination about a monster..."
  "..insolent children telling horrific story..."
  They couldn't live with it anymore. Those were just the news flash. Everyday they could see their names in local newspaper, making false conclusions about them. "DEMON HUNTERS ON DRUGS""STUDENTS MURDERED PRINCIPAL""AN UNBELIEVABLY FOOLISH FACT". Why couldn't they let Ellie and Flint live in peace? They had been through a lot of things and were saving the town, but was this how they repay for what Ellie and Flint had done? People were being cruel to them. So they had to move on.

  Ellie sat on the sofa, watching a news about her. She was feeling massively disappointed with the citizens of McKinley. For what she had accomplished, this was the prize for her. She knew that her life wouldn't be the same again. People would keep on ambushing her with absurd questions. That would take her sanity away, she could become crazy. When she returned to school, everyone was looking at her like she was a corrupted child who had use so many drugs and was hallucinating about the demon. She knew she was sober, even the blood test had proven that she was squeaky clean from drugs. She never touched them before. But what could she do? No one believed in her anymore. For them, Ellie was an unfortunate child.

  Flint thought it was time for him to move on. He had to protect Ellie from the citizens of McKinley. For all he cared about, Ellie must live in happiness. However, he knew that he wasn't doing a great job. Ellie always on the phone with him, almost everyday, crying about her new life. Flint couldn't take it anymore. He wanted to live with Ellie in happiness. Ellie had always been mocked and insulted by the bullies at school, and for the sake of Ellie, he fought with them, but he was the one that brought bruises back home. Ellie was touched to see Flint was willing to sacrifice himself for her. However, SHE couldn't watch him being tortured everyday.

  Detective Stone and Flint's grandparents had discuss about their problem and they had decided to move them away from McKinley, where it would be safe and peaceful. However, Ellie and Flint didn't agree with the plan. Ellie fought with her father because she didn't want to move away from Flint. She knew that she would be separated from Flint and only God knows when they would be meeting again. It was the same for Flint. His grandparents decided to give him away to a priest who they knew very well in New York. His late adopted mother was a nun, so they thought it would be better if Flint lived with a priest. At first, Flint refused, but to think again, Flint knew if they were separated, Ellie would get her life back and she would be happy. He knew that Ellie wouldn't have the heart to leave him and probably would be miserable without him, but he wanted her to be in peace from the people of McKinley. He decided to go on with his grandparents's plan.
  "You can't just go away, and act like this never happened before!" yelled Ellie at Flint.
  "Ellie! Listen! I can't stand from hearing and watching you cry almost everyday! And I can't let you be in sorrow! So I had to, Ellie! It is the only way that we can escape this," said Flint.
  "What? You think I'm not gonna suffer when you're gone? Like I'm not gonna be in sorrow when you're not there with me?"
  "At least you can live in peace! There's no other people who look at you like a crazy person! I don't want that to happen to you and I don't want this 'thing' to continue! We have to move away, Ellie. That's the best solution"
  "Then what happen if we don't see each other again? Sit there and live in peace?"
  "We will. We need to be patient until the day we'll see each other again. And I promise to you, I will wait for that day"
  Ellie couldn't hold her sadness. She hugged Flint and cried sorrowfully. She didn't have a heart to leave Flint. She needed Flint to be with her. "Don't worry, Ellie. We'll be together again, and I'm very sure after we do, we'll be happy again. But right now we have to sacrifice for each other. And I don't want to see you cry again. Promise to me that you wont cry again, okay?" said Flint coaxingly. Ellie nodded but her face was soaked in tears. Flint was right. They would be seeing each other again. All they need to do was to wait for that day.

  At the railway station, Det.Woods, Det.Stone, Ellie and Flint was waiting for the train patiently. The station was crowded with people, some of them were going to work and maybe some of them were going on a trip, but she doubt any of those people were escaping from tabloids except her and Flint. Suddenly, Det.Stone and Det.Woods took out a present for each of them. It was wrapped in a shiny wrapper and was dark blue and was kind of small as a size of a purse or a wallet. They thought it was a purse or a wallet.
  "Here, we have something for you before you go," said Det.Woods.
  "We thought you might need it now," said Det.Stone.
  "Thank you," said Ellie and Flint together.
  Ellie and Flint took their presents and were about to put it inside their travelling bags, but suddenly were stopped by both of the detectives.
  "Wait! Don't you want to know what's inside?" said Det.Stone.
  "We can open it when we have arrived," said Flint.
  "No! You have to get it opened now! You'll regret it if you don't," said Det.Woods.
  Ellie and Flint unwrapped the wrapper and produced a box which had a picture of a digital camera on it. It was a digital camera, obviously. They were surprised to see it and took out the camera from the box immediately. Ellie's was silver coloured and Flint's was dark blue. They were right, they needed it right at that moment.
  "We thought that you might want to take pictures of each other, so we bought you these," said Det.Woods.
  "Thank you! Thank you Olivia! Thank you dad!" said Ellie cheerfully.
  "How are we going to make it up to you?" said Flint merrily.
  "Get that thing fired up and keep on taking pictures!" said Det.Stone happily. "It has been loaded with batteries so you don't have to trouble yourself from buying the batteries here," he continued.
  Ellie and Flint turned on their cameras and viewed the surrounding on the LCD screen of the camera. It was absolutely clear and very sharp. Must be very expensive, they thought.
  "Hey Flint! Smile!" said Ellie. Flint stood stationary while pointing at his new camera and smiled sweetly. Ellie clicked on the button as soon as she got a better view of Flint.
  "Your turn," said Flint. Just like Flint, Ellie posed cutely with her new camera and smiled beautifully.
  Det.Stone and Det.Woods giggled as they watched the kids's act. Suddenly, an announcement was made, saying that a train to New York was arriving. Flint heard the announcement and suddenly, his mood changed.
  "Um? Ellie... That's my ride. I have to get across that bridge," said Flint.
  "Uh? Yeah sure. I'll see you later, okay Flint?" said Ellie calmly.
  "Yeah. You too Ellie. Good luck with your life"
  Ellie nodded. Every single cell in her body was telling her to not let Flint go off from her sight. However, she fought it. She had to let him go on with his life. She was confused, her heart beat was beating faster and she couldn't control her emotion, but she promised to Flint that she wouldn't cry again. She was biting her nail nervously. Flint was about to step on the stair of the bridge to get across. She stood there stationary and watched him from afar. "Flint!" screamed Ellie. Flint turned around and saw Ellie was running towards him. As soon as she reached him, she hugged him tightly and kissed him on the lips. Flint held her cheeks and locked his lips on Ellie's. It was both beautiful and saddest moment of their lives.

  Ellie let go of his face and stared at him in the eyes, so was Flint. Her heart beat was suddenly slowing down and she had fulfilled her wish. She smiled and continued to hug Flint tightly. "I love you, Flint, and I always do," said Ellie emotionally. Flint caressed her hair and touched her fluffy cheeks again. "I love you too, Ellie, and I always do," replied Flint romantically. They let go off each other. Flint gave Ellie a quick and final smooch and stared into her beautiful eyes once again. It was time for him to leave her. He went up the bridge and had crossed to the other side of the station. He waved at Ellie and Ellie replied him with a swift wave.

  Suddenly, her mind was playing all of her memories with Flint like videos on YouTube. The time she looked at Flint at the first time they met, the time she put her hand on Flint's hand in the cafe, the time he hugged her, the time he calmed her down at her house, the time he carried her on his back and much much more. It was absolutely beautiful and the most happiest moment in her life. She had found her one true love. Flint's train had arrived and he entered the train and sat near the window to look at Ellie for the final time. He put his hand on the window, and Ellie could see his sorrow. She wanted to faint, she wanted to die. She couldn't live without Flint. But she had to, for Flint and for herself. A minute had passed and the train had moved, inches by inches and finally sped up. Her eyes followed the train, looking at Flint until the train had disappeared from her sight. She dropped a single tear but she couldn't cry, feeling sad was enough. There was no need to cry. It was not the end, it was more like an ending of an episode. Another episode was awaiting and she hoped that one of them was an episode which she would be meeting Flint again. Flint had gone, but not forever. They would see each other again. They'd promised.

  4 years later, Ellie was 20 and was walking in her 5-inches heels on the street of New York. She worked there now. She was working as a secretary in a modelling agency. She was on the phone with her boss, asking her about the progress of the new upcoming modelling show in Los Angeles. She had given so many ideas to her boss, and her boss was impressed with her enthusiastic ideas. She then went into a yellow taxi, which was waiting for passenger. "6th Avenue please?" said Ellie to the taxi driver. The taxi driver nodded and started driving. "Okay, Mr.Luther. Okay, okay, I'll see what I can do sir. Okay sir. Good day sir," said Ellie. She then lay her head on the window, looking outside. Then, she looked into her Gucci handbag and produced a camera. She switched it on and looked at the picture of someone she loved so much. Flint Gordon, 4 years ago. She smiled alone and wished that she would meet him again.

  Flint was eating his sandwich in Beau goût, a French cafe. He was wearing a hooded jacket and a pair of light blue jeans. His hair was long and a face that hadn't been shaved for a while. Even though he sounded messy, he was loaded with money. If he wasn't he wouldn't be sitting in a French cafe. He looked into his jacket's pocket and took out a camera. He turned it on and browsed through pictures and finally stared at Ellie's picture. He smiled and hoped that they would meet again someday. He glanced at his wristwatch and it showed 3pm. "My God! I'm late!" he said. He went to the cashier and paid for his quick lunch. He then waited for a taxi but strangely, there was no taxi in sight. Suddenly, there was a taxi showed up from the corner and was approaching him. "Taxi!" he summoned. He noticed that there was a lady in the taxi, and he knew that the taxi wouldn't stop. Unexpectedly, it stopped, and the lady went out from the taxi while looking at her camera. Quickly, he held the door and accidentally knocked the lady's camera off from her grip. The camera made a snapping sound from the fall. Without looking, he apologized.
  "I'm so sorry! I'm very late!" said Flint.
  "It's okay. It's okay" said the lady.
  Flint went into the taxi and asked the driver to take him to the Central Park. They went off as soon as he told the driver his destination.

  Ellie was picking up her camera because a guy just knocked it off as soon as she dismounted from the taxi. She examined her camera, worried that it might be busted from the fall. She noticed that the camera accidentally snapped a picture of the guy who had ran into her. At first, she wanted to delete that anonymous picture, but suddenly... She recognized the man. She looked for the taxi, but it was no longer in sight. It had disappeared. "Flint..." she said slowly. It was Flint. She had bumped into him. So close for them to see each other again. However, she wasn't feeling worried. They might see each other again. Both of them lived in New York. They will meet again. One day...

A Demon's Child - Part 9

  The final battle had begun, it was the moment that they had been waiting for. Unfortunately, they didn't plan the strategy that much. So they had to do everything that they could to kill the monster. They looked at each other, eagerly, wanting for this final battle to be ended sooner. They couldn't be possibly waiting even for a minute anymore, they couldn't waste any time. Now it was the time, to finish the evil.
  "Hide! You go there! And I will hide behind that forklift," commanded Flint.
  "Okay," said Ellie while running to the boxes.
  "And Ellie?"
  "Good luck..."
  "...You too Flint"
  Flint nodded. He ran and hid behind the forklift. There was a sound of footsteps outside. The demon must be on foot before started climbing again and leaping like a frog. They must be ready for this.

  The footsteps were closing in. They could hear that the footsteps were getting closer, and louder, and finally, stopped in front of the door where they went through before. Ellie was scared to see the demon's face again. At first, she noticed that she didn't breathe right. She must calm down and be brave. Like Flint told her in her dream. Wait a minute, Flint! She remembered that she shouldn't be afraid. She HAD to be brave. She had nothing to be scared of, knowing that Flint would always be there for her. And now, look at him, risking his own life to kill the demon with her. She shouldn't be afraid. Not now, and never again. She saw his determination to protect her from anything. That was why, she fell in love with him, her one true love. Remembering that made her fear to be flown away. She was no longer afraid of the demon.

  The front door creaked, something was going inside. Suddenly, Ellie stood up and walked away from her hiding spot and went in front of the door, just some feet away. "Ellie! What the hell are you doing!?" hissed Flint. Ellie ignored him. She was determined to kill the demon, not wanting to let it live even for a second. She knew that they were lacking of strategy and she knew she was doing something that was plain stupid, but she didn't care. She wanted it to stop. Flint, her father, and Judith had protected her. Now it was the time for her to protect herself and others.

  The door was slowly opened, making Ellie feeling so nervous because of the suspense. "Come on, bitch! Show yourself!" hissed Ellie. Flint was feeling worried about Ellie and he was confused, wondering what she was doing over there? Was she trying to kill herself? Or was she giving up already? By the look of her face, she wasn't surrendering. She was being brave and determined to kill the demon. He had to join her. He couldn't just sit there and let his girlfriend being killed. The door was fully opened, it was dark outside, they didn't see anything outside, leaving a great suspense in that warehouse. Suddenly, a man showed up with his gun was being drawn, followed by his woman partner. It was Det.Stone and Det.Woods.
  "DAD!? What the hell are you doing here!?" exclaimed Ellie.
  "ELLIE!? What the hell are YOU doing here!?" yelled Det.Stone.
  "I was going to fight a demon, which is probably on its way here right now, and I was expecting IT not YOU!"
  "A demon? What the crap are you talking about?"
  "See? See?? This is why I go alone with Flint, because we believe that there is something out there chasing us! But you didn't! You didn't believe even though I told you since Mr.William's incident!"
  Leaving Det.Stone and her daughter to quarrel, Det.Woods went to Flint to examine his status. "Are you okay?" said Det.Woods. Flint was focusing on their debate but was startled when Det.Woods asked him a question.
  "Um? I'm okay," replied Flint.
  "Are you hurt? What about your hand there?"
  "Yes, it's okay. I'm fine. Thank you"
  Det.Stone and Ellie were still quarreling. Seemed like none of them was giving up. Both of them wanted to win the debate.
  "Do you know that you are in a biggest trouble?" said Det.Stone.
  "The biggest trouble about this is that people don't believe in us! They should have seen it by themselves! But no, they think they are matured enough to believe at something crappy like this just like you did to me! I was almost murdered by it and now you're saying that you still don't believe me?" explained Ellie.
  "I'm struggling to save you from all those charges but you still pissing off with me? Well thank you Miss Appreciate!"
  "Ah! You should appreciate me more 'cause I am now going to stop that demon from murdering innocent people again! And now you're saying that I'm not appreciating what you're doing to me?"
  "Yes! You don't! I've been investigating about this whole massive carnage and I, myself, don't believe that it was a wolf which could do all this terrible thing!" Det.Stone took out some pictures in his jacket "See? I told you I'm investigating to save you!"
  Ellie observed one of the pictures thoroughly. She seemed interested with the picture. It was a picture of a body in a pub. However, she wasn't interested with the body, she was interested with what lay next to the body. It was shiny and made from pure steel. It was a necklace, which had emerald letters attached to it. The letters were 'JM'. She recognized that necklace instantly.
  "This... necklace... I know this necklace," whispered Ellie to herself.
  "I beg your pardon?" said Det.Stone.
  She had realized something. She knew instantly who was the human form of the demon. However, she couldn't believe with what she was seeing and thinking. However, she had to believe it because there was no time of denying.

  "STONE!!" screamed Det.Woods. Det.Stone and Ellie looked at Det.Woods. She seemed amazed by something because her eyes were bulging and her mouth was partially opened. Flint was pulling her hand just to take her away from there. She was pointing outside of the warehouse. And there it was. The demon was standing gallantly outside of the door with its tongue sticking out of its mouth. Det.Stone slowly put his hand on the holster, to take out his gun. He did that slowly just to make sure that he wouldn't astonish the monster. But the monster had crouched. It was getting ready to leap, maybe would take Det.Stone down first.
  "Run, Ellie," whispered Det.Stone.
  "What? I can't...!" said Ellie.
  "Run, Ellie! Run now!" screamed Det.Stone.
  All four of them started running. The demon was leaping faster than before, its movement made it almost invisible. It was too fast. Ellie knew what she had to do, but she was waiting for the right moment. The monster knocked down Det.Stone, forced him to be thrown on the wall. The monster had spread its claws and leapt toward him. With all the agility and skills, Det.Stone evaded and performed a counter-attack. He had kicked the monster out of his way and the monster was barely moved because its body was harden and heavy. Det.Stone couldn't believe that his kick couldn't hurt the monster. If the demon was a human, it would be smiling at him now. The demon used its huge paw to bash Det.Stone on his head, throwing him again into one of the boxes. It was about to finish him but suddenly there was a gun shot. Det.Woods shot the monster at the back of its shoulder. The monster turned around and stared at her. She continued to shoot at the demon which was twice her height and her size. It seemed that the monster couldn't be weaken by shooting at it. It was approaching Det.Woods with its spreading claws.

  Suddenly, the monster stopped, glaring at Det.Woods eyes which were filled with fears. Det.Woods couldn't move at that moment. The only thing she could do was staring at the demon. The demon raised its claw to kill Det.Woods. "Woohoo!! Yippekayyay!" It was Flint. He was driving a forklift with a single hand and was speeding towards the demon. He ran over the demon and slammed the demon into the wall. The demon was stuck and suddenly remained silenced. Flint immediately ran away after he ran over the demon. Det.Woods went to Det.Stone and helped him to get him on his feet. He was kind of dizzy from the hit.
  "Are you okay?"
  "Yeah, quite woozy," said Det.Stone while shaking his head.
  "Come on. We better make up of something to stop it"
  She brought him away from the demon, hoping that they would have time before the demon hunts them again.

  Ellie was inside a file room which had so many racks. She walked around to find something that could burn those alcohols in the boxes. Suddenly she heard a cry. A cry for help. "Help! Help I'm hurt!" the voice was coming from behind the rack. She searched for the voice and found Flint was bleeding badly on his stomach.
  "Oh my God, Flint! Are you alright!?" said Ellie.
  "Please! It hurts Ellie!"
  "Don't worry Flint! I'll get you out of here!"
  Ellie brought Flint out from the file room and head towards the storage room. She could use alcohols as pain killer for Flint. However as soon as she arrived at the storage room, she was terribly in shock to see Flint was running towards her. "Ellie! That's not me!" yelled Flint from afar. Then who was the one she was holding? She looked at the other Flint, and that was not Flint at all. It transformed once again into a demon. She dropped it and it was creaking and snapping like it was having a hard time to re-transform into a demon.
  "Come on! I know what to do!" said Ellie.
  "Get on those boxes!" commanded Flint.
  They climbed on those boxes until they reached the top. She knew what to do. And it was her only chance to kill the demon before the demon undergoes another metamorphosis. She remembered what the article said. Once the demon had grown a pair of wings, it would be too late to kill it. She must hurry before it's too late.

  Det.Stone and Det.Woods were waiting for the demon to show up again. This time they had their guns loaded. Maybe it didn't work before because only Det.Woods was shooting it alone. Now, they wanted to try shooting it together. The demon was searching for Ellie and Flint after finishing its transformation. It cancelled its plan after seeing Det.Stone and Det.Woods were waiting for it. It was coming closer to them. "Now!" yelled Det.Stone. Both of them started firing and those gun shots had echoed all over the place. However, it seemed that their plan didn't work. The demon kept on approaching and it couldn't be weaken by shooting it. "Damn it, Stone! It didn't work!" yelled Det.Woods while shooting. Up ahead, Ellie and Flint was waiting for the right moment for the monster to stand on the right spot. "Dad! Save a bullet! I need to use it!" yelled Ellie from above. Her father nodded. Flint and Ellie looked at each other and nodded to give a signal that it was time to drop off the load. "Push!" said Flint. They pushed the alcohol boxes from above and hit the monster below. They pushed another boxes which contained stuffed animals and electronic devices and crashed onto the monster once again. They climbed off the boxes and Ellie asked for his father's gun. "I know what to do dad. And it's time to finish all of this madness," said Ellie. Her father gave her his gun, putting Faith on his daughter.

  Ellie went closer to the rubble, which the demon lay underneath it. Alcohol sprayed and flowed on the floor, stuffed animals all over the place and electronic devices crushed and busted on the floor. Suddenly, the rubble moved, the monster re-appeared and had hurt badly from the damage. It was soaked in alcohol. The demon glared at Ellie angrily, like it was so desperate to kill her. Ellie glared at it too with a vicious expression. She pointed the gun at the demon. She must end this once and for all. "I know who you are. You have deceived me, lied to me, and made my life like hell. I know where did you come from, son of The Unnamed Demon. Now, it's time for you to go back to Hell," said Ellie. Suddenly she burst into tears "How could you!? I trusted you! I was there when you had problems! And as a payment, you make me feel miserable!?" The demon was speechless, it didn't make any roar or growl. Everyone was confused. Ellie could talk nicely to a demon? It was like she was motivating it. Ellie wiped her tears off of her face. "I'm so sorry. But I have to do this. For the sake of innocent people. And the ones you had killed. You must pay for what you've done" Silence, there was nothing to be heard. The demon had stopped from moving and Ellie was shaking and was nervous. "Judith Merriman!" screamed Ellie at the top of her lung. The demon roared and held its head after hearing its human's name. So it was Judith! To think back, it was rational. Judith knew about Mr.William's death while the other students knew about it a day later. And her body was never found when the demon had entered Ellie's house. Finally, her necklace was lying next to a dead body in the pub where Ellie and Flint was seeking for help. It was no coincidence.
  BANG ! ! !
  She had pulled the trigger. Once the bullet had hit the demon, flame was engulfing it. Everyone could smell the burning flesh. The demon roared and was struggling to get the fire extinguished. However, there was nothing it could do. It kept on burning until it lay still and died. It was over. It was finally over. Ellie closed her eyes and felt relieved. Flint went to Ellie and hugged her. Ellie cried on his chest and he watched the demon burned. He couldn't believe that demon was Judith too. But it was too late for denial. All of their hardwork, had finally paid off.

A Demon's Child - Part 8

  Nurse Carson was a male nurse and was checking on a patient's status at the reception post. He examined it thoroughly and was on his way to the patient's ward. According to the status, the patient was recovering and didn't have to stay in the hospital any longer. He was going to announce it to the patient. However when he arrived at ward A-114, there was no one there. The bed had been made and it was tidy. "What the hell? Where is this Flint Gordon?". He entered the room to observe it and check if the patient was in the toilet.
  Tap! Tap! Tap!
  "Mr.Flint Gordon? Are you in there?" said the nurse. There was no answer. The toilet's door was not locked so he opened it and saw the toilet was still squeaky clean. He felt so strange. There was a cafeteria at the ground level but no one could ever go out from that level without a nurse's permission and supervision. He was a head nurse on that floor so he should know where the patient's whereabout.
  "Nurse Carson," a voice startled him from behind. He turned around and saw a girl with brown hair and green eyes. She had a bandage on her head and both of her palms. She was looking at him blankly.
  "Oh! Ellie Stone! Um? Do you know where Flint Gordon is? Your friend?" said Nurse Carson.
  "He must be wandering around, finding some fresh air"
  "But he needs to tell me first. If not I'll be dead!" said Nurse Carson.
  "That's okay. Flint wont leave me alone," said Ellie while closing the ward's door.
  Nurse Carson was confused to see Ellie's act. Was it necessarily to close the door? "Um? Why are you closing the door?" he asked.
  Ellie was closing in while strutting seductively towards Nurse Carson. "Oh, nothing important. Just want have a private time with you," said Ellie while getting her hand into Nurse Carson's uniform, touching his bare chest.
  "What are you doing?" asked Nurse Carson nervously.
  "Nothing. I'm just wanna smell your perfume," replied Ellie flirtatiously while digging her nose into Nurse Carson's neck.
  Nurse Carson felt the warmth of Ellie's breath. The he realized he couldn't go on with a patient. That would make him living on a street with a bowl in his hands. So he grabbed Ellie's hand and tossed it away from his chest.
  "Look you can't do this. I have something important to do. Now tell me again, where is Flint Gordon?" said Nurse Carson angrily.
  "Aww. Nurse Carson doesn't want to play with me? That's too bad"
  "You're wasting my time. I'll search for him by myself" He was approaching the door and was about to leave the ward. Suddenly, he felt that he was bound to something. Something was pulling him away from the door. It was a tongue and it had wrapped thickly around his neck. He couldn't breathe and barely had a voice to scream for help. The tongue forced him to look around and he saw Ellie Stone with a grim face while letting her tongue out to wrap his neck. Ellie lifted him into the air with her own tongue. Nurse Carson's mouth was widely opened, desperate for air, dying for help. For the last time, Nurse Carson saw that Ellie's eyes were changing colour into evil yellow.
  CRACK ! !
  His neck bone had been twisted and killed him immediately. Then, Ellie slammed his body onto the ground, making his other bones to snap like twigs. The tongue that had wrapped his neck was returning into her mouth. "I had so much fun playing with you, Nurse Carson. See you in Hell," said Ellie grimly.

  Detective Stone and Detective Woods were in the car, on their way to the hospital. Det.Stone was holding a  bag of Big Macs and French fries to give to Ellie and Flint in the hospital. Ellie loved Big Mac since she was little. Det.Stone remembered when Ellie cried because a dog stole her Big Mac and he had to buy another one for her. That was when Ellie was at age 7.
  "Harold? Is there something on your mind?" asked Det.Woods.
  "Oh, nothing. I just remembered that Ellie cried to me just because a dog stole her sandwich. She was 7," said Det.Stone.
  "Look at her now. Grown up and beautiful. You've done a great job raising her without Sherry, Harold. You're a great father"
  "She looks a lot like Sherry, Olivia. When I look at her face... I don't know. I think I'm looking at Sherry and I don't want to lose her. Never"
  "Don't worry Harold. We'll take care of her okay?"
  "Yeah, we better do. Oh God now I'm hating the chief. How could he?"
  "Don't worry about him. We'll take care of him. After all, we've been a great team since you and Sherry were dating back in the 90's. Such a..." she stopped as soon as she saw 2 police cars in front of the hospital and some of the men were wearing FBI jackets. "FBI? What the hell?" said Det.Woods.

  As soon as Det.Woods and Det.Stone arrived at the parking, they went out from the car and walked towards the FBI to ask why they were there.
  "I'm Detective Stone and this is Detective Woods. What the hell happened here?" said Det.Stone while flashing his card.
  "I'm not quite sure. They said one of the nurse has been killed in a ward. His neck was twisted. And there is a report saying that 2 of the patients had escaped from the hospital," said one of the FBI.
  "What!? Where is the location that the body was found?"
  "In ward A-114. We believe that the patient killed the nurse to escape. They had escaped by a 1994 Honda Civic which had been reported missing"
  "Ward A-114!?" That was where Flint was treated! And next to it was A-113, Ellie's ward!
  Det.Stone and Det.Woods rushed into the hospital and went to the reception post and met a nurse.
  "Det.Stone and Det.Woods. Can you show us the visual of the patients who had escaped?" said Det.Stone.
  "Yes, sure. Here you go," said the nurse kindly.
  Det.Stone observed the visual which showing the parking lot and he saw a 1994 Honda Civic was parked near the bushes. A minute after that, Ellie and Flint showed up on the screen. That was their biggest mistake ever. They forgot about the CCTV. "Oh Ellie. What have you done?"

  Ellie and Flint had just got out from the library and was on their way back to the Midnight Light Motel to get the car to run away again. They were discussing the plan to get the monster killed but somehow none of it was making a sense. The only problem was, they didn't know who was the demon's child. If they could get the name, it'd be easier. To burn the demon it would be so difficult because the demon was so agile. They could be killed before burning the demon. So they had to get the name to slow it down and burn it afterwards. They walked next to the electronic shop where TVs were displayed behind the glass. Suddenly, Ellie noticed that the TV was broadcasting a news.
  "Flint, wait," said Ellie.
  "What is it?" asked Flint.
  ...two of the McKinley Hospital patients have killed a nurse and escaped from the building. It is believed that they have escaped by using a 1994 Honda Civic. They are Ellie Stone and Flint Gordon, which are also the students of McKinley High. They were also spotted when their headmaster, Doug William had been killed brutally that evening...
  "Oh my God, Flint! That's us! We didn't kill that nurse!?" exclaimed Ellie.
  "We didn't! The demon did! It had tracked us down! That's great!" said Flint in excitement.
  "What do you mean by 'great'!? We are in the most wanted list right now!"
  "No! That will make our job easy now! But we must make a plan. That demon is coming to us now. In any time it will appear again. We must get ready for the final battle Ellie! It's our final hope to save all the people in this town!" explained Flint.
  "There's no 'but' Ellie. We almost there! Whether kill or be killed. But we have to go on foot by now. They have known about the car. The article said that the demon loves to live in a jungle. Do you know a jungle nearby here?"
  "Yes I do and I think I know where is the demon's nest is. There is an abandoned warehouse in that jungle. If it is not, then it is okay. The demon will soon track us and find us. That will give us time to make a plan to kill it"
  "Great! Show me the way and we'll make a plan on the way there, okay?" said Flint.
  They started walking and continued to plan a strategy. As soon as the walked by, the cashier from that electronic shop had peeked on them and made a call.
  "911 Emergency. How may I help you?"
  "I think I found the escapees of McKinley Hospital. They were standing right in front of my store"

  It was already night and Ellie was so hungry and tired from walking. She knew that they couldn't arrive in time if they walked. They need a transport. Ellie was squeezing her stomach with her hand. Flint was hungry too but he didn't show it in front of Ellie. He was shy. Both of them were exhausted but they couldn't waste a minute because they knew if they were a minute late, it'll be over for them and the citizens of McKinley. They had to get going.
  "Flint, I'm hungry. I've never been this starving before. My stomach hurts," said Ellie.
  "Hold on Ellie. I'm hungry too," persuaded Flint while putting his hand around Ellie.
  They kept on walking, exhaustedly. They couldn't do anything about it. They were in the middle of nowhere. However, they could see a jungle not from there. They just need to walk a little bit more, and probably hold on a little longer.
  "Ergh! I can't hold on Flint! My stomach hurts so badly!"
  Flint didn't know what to do. He couldn't let Ellie in pain. He felt sorry for her. She had gone through a lot of things. Just like him. He had an idea but he must withstand his pain.
  "Here, hop on my back," said Flint while ducking in front of Ellie.
  "What? No! Your hand! It'll be painful!" said Ellie worriedly.
  "You don't have to worry. I don't feel pain anymore. Not with you. Come on! Hop on! It'll be fun, Ellie!"
  Ellie was worried about his hand. But seeing him offering her to hop on his back was kind of sweet, she thought. For her, Flint was her true love, sacrificing himself for her happiness. "O... Okay." She climbed on his back and he continued to walk. "I can only hold your left leg 'cause, you know? My other hand is busted. Haha!" he said while laughing. Ellie smiled when she heard that Flint was laughing. He had a funny laugh. Ellie put her head on Flint's shoulder and whispered to him "Thank you Flint". Flint was so happy to hear that. At least that was what he could do to help Ellie at the moment. "Anything for you," said Flint. Ellie fell asleep on his shoulder. "Ellie?" whispered Flint. Ellie didn't answer as she were already asleep. Flint knew that she was exhausted. He smiled and whispered "Sleep well Ellie." He could feel her heart beat from his back. Slow and steady. He thanked to God that He had introduced him to Ellie. He remembered when he was asking her out, then Ellie held his hand, when they almost kissed at Ellie's house. It was a remarkable moment.

  He stared into the jungle. Dark and scary. There was a road in the jungle. It must be leading to the warehouse, just like Ellie told him. He went into the jungle, not knowing the danger that was awaiting him in there. He could hear the sound of an owl and crickets. It was pitch dark, the only thing that shone in the darkness was moonlight and fireflies. So he could see the road, but it was unclear. He could see a huge figure ahead of him, a building. Must be the warehouse. He kept on walking but slowly because he afraid that Ellie might be slipping off of him. However, it was a little too late to be worried. She had already awaken.
  "Flint, where are we?" asked Ellie sleepily.
  "Oh Ellie, you're awake. I'm in the jungle. Do you see the huge shadow there?" said Flint.
  Ellie was scrubbing her eyes, then she looked at the shadow that Flint had mentioned about. "What is that?"
  "We're here Ellie. That's the warehouse"
  "What? Drop me off here"
  "Why? Just a bit more"
  "No. You've been carrying me for so long. It's okay. I can walk from now on"
  Flint bowed down and Ellie dismounted from his back and repaired the crumples on her shirt. They continued to walk towards the warehouse. It was not far. Just a couple of steps left.

  It was huge. They stared at the warehouse for a minute. Not knowing what should they do now. Ellie tried to open the warehouse's door but it was locked from inside. Flint assumed that the door must be rusty. So maybe he could help with the door. "Ellie, stay back," said Flint. Then, he kicked on the door and the banging sound echoed through the forest. He kicked it continuously and the door produced a cracking sound. Suddenly, it was widely opened with a bang as the door hit the wall. Dust rained down on the floor and the warehouse was pitch dark. They couldn't see anything in there. So how they could find a switch to switch on the light? "Should we get in?" said Ellie. Should they?

  Flint looked around for power box and he saw one on the right. "Ellie! Follow me," said Flint. He went to the power box and opened it. There was a lever inside the box. He assumed that the lever was for the light. He lowered down the lever and he was right. The warehouse seemed to be alive and roaring for power. The light had shone the darkness inside the warehouse. "It worked!" said Ellie. "Lets go inside," she continued. Inside was huger than they thought, but filled with boxes and barrels. They went inside and observe the place thoroughly. The boxes are 10 years older than them, containing alcohol bottle and toys and electronic devices which were very old. She was wondering, how could the power can be turned on when the place was much older than they thought? It must be the power saver, she thought. Suddenly, they heard a roar outside. But it sounded different than before. It was coming from outside the jungle, the road which they had gone through before entering the jungle.
  "Did you hear that?" said Flint.
  "Clearly. Flint? I'm scared," said Ellie. Flint grabbed Ellie's hand and squeezed it just to make her feel calm.
  "It's okay. We'll make through this"
  They were awaiting for the monster to enter the warehouse, praying to God that He would give them strength to fight this demon. They were scared but they must withstand it. It was up to them now. The fate of mankind is in their hands.

  The final battle has begun. Who will win this battle? It was a battle between Humans and a Demon.

A Demon's Child - Part 7

  Detective Stone was back from the hospital. However, he couldn't his mind off of Ellie. He was still worried. Why did she traveled all the way to the forest with Flint? Whose bike did Flint ride with Ellie? And who did break into the house from the window of his kitchen? He had a lot of work to do now, searching for the answers. Meanwhile, he was being haunted by mysteries.
  "Detective Stone!" called a voice from an office.
  Det.Stone responded immediately. "Yes Detective Woods?" said Det.Stone.
  "I need you to step into my office after this. The sooner the better"
  "Priority level?"
  "... It's about your daughter"
  Det.Woods was a female detective. Blonde and skinny. Det.Stone went into Det.Woods's office. It was small but quite comfortable. However, Det.Stone wanted to know what she was going to tell him about Ellie. He was curious, and worried.
  "What is it Det.Woods?" said Det.Stone.
  "Det.Stone, I am very, truly sorry about what happened to Ellie but right now we can't deny the fact that she might be one of our suspect," explained Det.Woods.
  Suspect? Ellie was a suspect in this chaotic incident? How could that be?
  "A suspect? What do you mean by 'a suspect'?" asked Det.Stone.
  "We believe that Ellie has something to do with these homicides," said Det.Woods while handing over several pictures to Det.Stone.
  Det.Stone browsed those pictures carefully. Garrett, Mr.William and some bikers were brutally killed in that pictures. How could Ellie kill all these people?  She couldn't have the strength to rip off flesh with her own hands!
  "This is preposterous. My daughter wouldn't do such a horrible thing!" exclaimed Det.Stone.
  "I know and I know Ellie and I know she wouldn't do such thing. But right now, we must investigate. Prove it to the chief that she has nothing to do with this"
  "Det.Woods, I invited you over to celebrate Ellie's every birthday! And I invited you to see her talent show in her school! And you gave her your $400 Rolex wristwatch on her 14th Christmas and she is still wearing it! How could NOT you prove it to the chief yourself!?" yelled Det.Stone while slamming Det.Woods's table.
  "Det.Stone... Harold... I understand how are you feeling right now. And I know and know it VERY well that Ellie is innocent. But right now, order is an order. We must do as the chief asks us to do before he throws us on the street. Okay? Just calm down and we'll go through this" coaxed Det.Woods.
  Det.Stone remained silenced. He didn't know what to say, thinking why was this happening to his daughter. She was the only thing that was important to him. He continued to browse through the pictures. Suddenly he saw something new in that pictures. Death of Bikers. He never knew this before. Or he was too busy with Ellie to know about this.
  "This is new. Where did it happen?" asked Det.Stone.
  "That happened on the night we filed Ellie's disappearance. According to one of the survivors, who is currently staying in our supervision and has a terrible shock, he saw Ellie walked into the pub that night, searching for helps. According to him, he remembered that a boy who was with Ellie, Flint Gordon was mentioning about a monster, a maniac was pursuing them," explained Det.Woods.
  "Does he remember who killed the bikers?"
  "He couldn't remember very well. He said it was chaotic. All of the sudden, everybody was screaming and running away from something"
  Wait a minute. He remembered something. He remembered when he arrived at McKinley High to investigate Mr.William's body. "It was the monster! It killed Mr.William! And now it is coming after me!" Ellie was crying and yelling at him. Was it really a 'monster' which had caused this chaotic incident?
  "Det.Stone? Is there something on your mind right now?" said Det.Woods.
  "How about if you and I become monster hunters?"
  Det.Woods was confused. She stared at Det.Stone blankly, really had no idea what was Det.Stone was talking about. Or he had lost it?

  Ellie was feeding porridge to Flint since Flint's right arm was currently 'unavailable'. She wiped off the remaining porridge on Flint's lips with her bare fingers. It seemed like Flint was thinking about something. He was eating slowly. "Flint? Is there something wrong?" said Ellie. However, Flint just shook his head. She knew that something was wrong. Ellie continued to feed Flint. She found it cute when she fed Flint and wiped Flint's mouth.
  "Ellie?" Flint finally spoke.
  "Yes Flint?"
  "What did you mean by 'saying its name will weaken the demon'?"
  Ellie remembered that line when she was in her dream world. Was she the one who told Flint that? All she remembered that Flint was the one who told her.
  "What do you mean?" asked Ellie.
  "Before I woke up, I had a dream, where I saw you. You said 'saying its name will weaken the demon'. Did I say it wrong?"
  "Flint... Where were you in that dream?"
  "... In a flower garden"
  Ellie remembered the garden when Flint told her something about a demon. Was it a clue? That was it? By saying its name would defeat the monster? She remembered that she saw Flint's past. She wondered if Flint saw hers too.
  "Did you remember anything else? Like my past life?" asked Ellie eagerly.
  "I saw your mother"
  "My mother?"
  "She fought with Death for you. I saw her in the labour room, fighting so hard for you. She died when you've made it, if I'm not mistaken"
  It was true. Her mother had sacrificed her life for Ellie. Ellie looked down. She was missing her mother. However, she thought that that wasn't important. Right now she had to ask him what did she say in his dream world.
  "Forget about that Flint. Do you remember what I said in your dream?" said Ellie.
  "You told me not to be scared because you'll always be with me and you'll fight with the monster with me until the end. And you told me that by saying the monster's name will weaken it," said Flint.
  "Flint, I had the same dream. You told me that too. I think it is a clue on how to defeat the monster"
  Flint wasn't sure if he was following but he was trying. "Meaning? We can't defeat the monster?"
  "Yes, if we found out its host's name. That 'thing' we encountered is a demon. It is possessing someone. If we scream its host's name, it can be exorcised. That's it! That's the clue! We have to find out its host's name!"
  "But how? We don't know anything about that demon. Yes it will be WEAKENED by saying the host's name but we don't know on how to KILL it," explained Flint.
  "Hmm..." Then she thought of something. "Can you walk?" said Ellie cynically.

  They walked out of the hospital and headed towards the parking lot. They were sneaking out and Ellie didn't feel freaked out or scared. But Flint? "Ellie are you out of your mind? They'll be contacting the police to search for us!" He didn't feel the same way. Ellie ignored him and continued walking and search for the right car. "Cover me, Flint!" commanded Ellie. She approached a 1994 Honda Civic and tried to infiltrate the car using her hair clips. "Are you crazy!? The police will bust us after this!" exclaimed Flint. Ellie was kind of annoyed but she had to be patient when she was doing something.
  "Ellie!" said Flint.
  "Flint! Can you at least be a little bit calmer? So I can do my job here?" explained Ellie.
  Flint gave up. He had no idea what Ellie was going to do. "There! Get in Flint!" commanded Ellie. Flint did what she asked him to do. In the car, by using the hair clips, she wanted to get the car fired up.
  "Ellie, I'm not feeling good about this," said Flint.
  "Well I'm not feeling too but what choice do we have?"
  "Uh? I dunno? Tell your dad about the monster and try to finish it all together?" said Flint sarcastically.
  "Oh yeah! Like he's going to believe us anyway. People don't trust us, Flint. If we say something that makes them think 'It's a bullshit', they'll assume that we are on drugs or weeds or pots, since we are teenagers. If we're going to end this, we have to do it in our way, or get locked up in that hospital, doing nothing until that monster comes to us and rips our guts off. Do you want that to happen? No, 'cause I don't. Now if you excuse me, I want to get this car on," explained Ellie.
  Flint once again gave up. She was right though. Before the police get them locked up inside the ward just for an observation. They have been involved in a massacre in the pub so the police will get them first.

  The car roared. Ellie had made it! She felt so relieved that the car had started. 
  "How in the world you did that, Ellie? Have you ever done this before?" asked Flint.
  "No. I watched it on TV so I gave it a shot"
  "You gave it a shot?"
  Ellie smiled, satisfied that she was bailing out from the hospital. She didn't want anyone to be the victim anymore. She wanted it to stop. In the city, she was finding a hidden place to hide the car before someone reported it missing. A motel could be a great place to hide this old machine.
  "Where are we going?" asked Flint.
  "I'm searching for a place to hide this car. Then, we'll get something nicer to wear. Then, we'll search for a local cyber cafe to find out more about this demon"
  Then, she saw a motel 'Midnight Light' to park the car and probably steal some clothes to wear. Her luck was on her side. She saw some clothes hanging on a piece of thick rope. Boy that place had no class at all!

  After getting changed, they went to the street to search for the cyber cafe. Instead of wearing a light blue shirt, Flint was wearing a Paramore T-Shirt and Ellie was wearing a Mickey Mouse buttoned up shirt. They were walking on a street which had stores next to it. The street was not crowded. There were people who looked at them in weird ways. I mean, they had bandages on their heads and Flint had a sling on his right arm.  The street had so many shops. But none of them was a cyber cafe. There was a bakery, boutiques, cafes, and a public library. Wait. A library! They could use a PC there.
  "There's no cyber cafe but we can use a PC in this library. They're free too," explained Ellie.
  "Come on, let's go before someone is suspecting us," said Flint.
  They entered the public library and it wasn't as huge as Flint thought. It was very similar with the school library. They sat in front of the PC and opened a browser to search for the information about the demon.
  "Right, here we are. What should I type?" said Ellie.
  "Try 'demons'," said Flint.
  Ellie typed the word 'demons' but nothing useful came out. It just said 'demons are a malevolent creature to corrupt a human's Faith towards God'. That was it. Nothing more.
  "This is useless, Flint. There are many types of demons which have different names. We can't find it if there are thousands of demons out there," said Ellie.
  "Don't give up! We have come this far! We almost reach the end. Try demon+long tongue+flesh eater+yellow eyes,"
  She found that useless, of what Flint had suggested her to do. But she tried it just to make Flint felt satisfy and appreciated. However she was wrong. There was a hit of the search. The Unnamed Demon. She clicked on the link and started to read the information. There lies a demon without a name, hunting for the truth, a name that could differ it from others. Six wings of evil, and yellow eyes to deceive human beings, four arms that let it crawls, a long tongue to feed on flesh, and thirsty for dear blood. That was what it said on the page. There was a picture of it too, similar with what they saw before. However... Six wings and four arms? The demon they saw had no wings at all and only had 2 arms.
  "Flint! This is it! But the only problem is, the monster we saw doesn't have wings and 4 arms. What does that mean?" said Ellie helplessly.
  "I don't know. The characteristic is almost the same, but the appearance is not similar at all"
  "Let's check on how to weaken it. Then, we'll read on how to kill it"
  Its only weakness is when a person shouts its name. There was a legend saying that The Unnamed Demon couldn't listen to its name because it hated it. Even though it is searching for a name but it can't accept the fact that it has a terrible name. It cannot possess a human but can only deceive them. It feeds on blood and flesh but it will bury the body after finishing it...
  "Wait, this doesn't make any sense. Bury the body after finishing it? Cannot possess a human? This is nonsense!" said Flint.
  "Flint, is this the demon we've been searching for? It sounds like it," said Ellie.
  "I don't really know Ellie"
  Ellie didn't know what to say. Her instinct told her not to give up and read more about this demon.
  It cannot be killed for it is invulnerable. It will only deceive people to come to it only when it is feeling hungry. Usually it lives in a thick jungle and comes out when only, and only to hunt. It cannot breed for it is male and doesn't have a mate. It uses a female human as a surrogate mother. Its child will be human during infancy and adolescence stage but will undergo metamorphosis when the human form has become matured.
  "Wait. A child? Breeding? It can breed?" said Ellie confusedly.
  "Click on the 'child'," said Flint, hoping that they'll get an answer after this.
  The Unnamed Demon's Child (A Demon's Child)
  It is created after The Unnamed Demon has released its seeds inside the surrogate mother. The seeds will be created once in a hundred years. The child will be human during infancy and adolescence but will undergo metamorphosis when it(human form) has become matured. No matter what gender the human is, when the metamorphosis is in process, it will turn into a male demon. The child is messier than the father but it will learn for itself as it grew older. During the first stage, the child does not look like the father. It has a pair of arms and a long tongue. It can be killed when it is burned. However, it will be too late to kill when it has grown a pair of wings on its back. Usually it can be weaken when someone calls its human name and will be instantly transformed into its human form again. It is fully vulnerable when it has become a human again, and I suggest you to kill it quickly because in a matter of time it will re-transform into a demon again. Once it has become matured, it will be invulnerable like its father.

  There was a picture below the article and it absolutely looked like the one that had been chasing them before. Ellie and Flint felt so satisfied. Finally, they had found what they were looking for. They looked at each other and smiled. At last, they knew how to weaken the demon and how to kill that demon. Now, they need a plan. A plan to end this once and for all. 
  "Ellie, we have found it" said Flint.
  "Yes. Yes, we almost there. We can stop it Flint. We can stop it, I know we can. But we must hurry before it's too late"
  "We need a lot of fire. Lots of, lots of fire!"
  "We can beat this! We can kill it! We'll save a lot of people in this town!"
  They were so rejuvenated when they knew they could kill it. But they must be hurry before it would be too late. It was a race against time. 

  Will they make it? Will they survive? Will the town be safe from the demon? Hopefully they will save the town. They must make a strategy for the final battle. A final battle between Humans and A Demon's Child.

A Demon's Child - Part 6

  A light, streaming at the end of a hollow and dark space. She saw it and wondered, was she already dead? There were noises, but it was unclear. It was like someone was shouting and yelling and crying. And she felt someone was controlling her body and she was helpless and immobile. "El... lie... El... lie... Ellie!" she heard someone was calling her name but God, it was so unclear! She couldn't make out whose voice was it. Suddenly, she could move her hand and somehow, she could feel that she was touching a leather. Slowly, she regained her vision. Blurry. She couldn't really see so well. Then, she heard "Aiyayayayay!" it was a laugh. She recognized it. It was Spongebob's laugh. However it was, she was home. She was lying on the sofa in front of the TV. Spongebob's DVD was still playing, but she couldn't be more care less about the show. She wanted to know what did happen to her and how did she get home? Did someone carry her here? She put her feet down to the ground but suddenly she stepped on something, gooey and slimy. She didn't notice what it was. However as soon as she regained full consciousness. She knew what did she step on.

  "FLIIIIINNNNNTTTT!!!" she screamed at the top of her long when she knew she was stepping on Flint's intestines. His stomach was ripped open, showing his colons and his kidneys. His jaw were forcedly opened and his eyes were bulging. Blood pooled on top of her. She was so scared! Her hero was dead, killed viciously. Now, she didn't have someone to help her. She was on her own. She didn't really know what to do next but as soon she saw the door, she rushed to it and went outside, however, she didn't make it outside because she bumped into someone who was standing outside the door. He was fat and smartly dressed.
  "Take it easy, Ms.Stone! Where are you going?" said the man.
  "Mr.William, help me please! Flint Gordon is dead and his body is in my living...!" she stopped as soon she realized who she was talking to. Mr.William? He was alive? In one piece? How could that be? "Mr.William... You're... Alive?"
  "Of course I am! I'm here to hunt you down and I want to bathe in your blood and eat your whole flesh! Hahahaha!" said Mr.William grimly. Suddenly, his face turned ugly and his tongue was sticking out of his mouth. It was the monster and now it knew how to shape shift. Ellie was screaming hysterically, and quickly closed the door and locked it. Wait. Something was not right. Where was Flint? He was gone! There was no blood, no body, and the TV had silenced. She was confused. Where was she? Was she already in Hell? She didn't know what to do and she was absolutely confused. She wanted to cry but she knew it wasn't the right time. She must know where she was right now. Bravely, she peeked through the window and saw the street in front of her house. However, the monster had disappeared, no longer on her door step. She thought it would be the right moment to go out and search for help.

  She burst out of her house and went outside and suddenly, she realized that wasn't 'outside' at all. Well, it was 'outside' but not 'outside' that she knew and was expecting. She was at a graveyard. She saw a huge church in front of the graveyard but that didn't catch her attention at all. She saw a nun, praying on a grave and weeping. She walked toward her to ask question but suddenly something stopped her intention. A cry. Baby's cry. She turned around to search for the cry but she couldn't trace it. All of a sudden, she felt something was walking through her. It was the nun, searching for that dear cry. Was she dead? Someone could walk through her! Was she a spirit? 

  The nun gasped loudly. "Oh my Lord! Who could have done this? Such a beautiful baby!" she cried as soon as she held the baby. The baby was found inside a bush. The baby finally stopped crying as soon as the nun held him. "Oh, who could have a heart to throw you away like this? Poor little child" she said in tears. She then looked around for clues. She didn't expected to see a sign which had a name on it. 'Flint Road'. For her, it was a sign from God to name that child. "I know what to call you! Flint! A little knight who survived" she looked at the child merrily. The baby giggled when the nun touched his cheeks. "Flint. What a beautiful name for you" It was Flint Gordon when he was still a baby. She couldn't believe her eyes and she was so happy to see the nun was holding Flint. She dropped tears of joy to see him in the hand of a nice nun.

  "Mary Gordon" a voice startled her from behind. As soon as she turned around, she wasn't at the graveyard anymore. She was at a place more beautiful. She was at a garden. Flower garden. However, the sky was dark, covered with dark clouds. But the voice was coming from a man. Fair hair, flawless face and a pair of brown eyes. Flint Gordon was standing in front of her.
  "Mary Gordon was the one who saved me and adopted me. She was the one who raised me and gave her knowledge to me. I loved her," said Flint again.
  "Flint! You're alive!" said Ellie while running toward him. She hugged him as tight as she could and so was Flint. The sky became brighter and the sun was shining gallantly as soon as they hugged. Petals were floating in the air and the air was more rejuvenating than before.
  "Ellie. You're a strong girl. I know it. You can beat the demon yourself. Even though without me, Ellie," said Flint romantically.
  "Flint! What are you talking about? I was a weak person and you've made me strong! You were the one who saved me. You're my hero. I never met a person like you before. You are possessing my heart, Flint" replied Ellie.
  "Did you feel the same way when you looked at me? You've caught my eyes when we first met. I knew you are a special person. And now, I'm not regretting my thought. I was right. You are a special person. If I die, I want you to hold my hand for the last time. I love it when the first time you held my hand. Do you remember when was it?"
  "The first time that you asked me out. I remember Flint and always do. I know we just met. And I know it is too early for it, but Flint Gordon! Oh how much I love you!"
  "Mary Gordon once said, even how terrible the situation is, you'll find a beautiful part of it. She was right. I love you too Ellie Stone. You'll be forever my life"
  Once again, their heads were closing with each other. They felt the connection, eventhough they were at a place they didn't even know where it was. Their lips had sealed to each other. They kissed. For them, it was the most beautiful moment in their life. How did they find their true love. They were both 16, but somehow, love didn't care. Love works on any age. Love is mysterious. Love is beautiful. Love can be found, only with the person who is meant to be with you.

  Suddenly, a roar could be heard behind them. They found where did the roar come from. It was the monster, sticking out its long tongue. Ellie and Flint glared at it. They weren't feeling afraid anymore. It was time to finish the monster. Once and for all. "Ellie, listen to me. This demon can be weaken by calling out its name. If you know its name, you will defeat it. Say it out loud and that demon will return to its original form, which means the host that it's possessing. And Ellie, don't be afraid. I will fight with you 'til the end of it," said Flint bravely.

  Flint disappeared into thin air. However, Ellie wasn't afraid to fight with the demon. She knew that Flint would always be in her heart. "It's time to put an end here, bitch!" said Ellie.

  She woke up in a bed. There was a bandage on her forehead and on her hand. She was in patient's costumes. She knew that she was in a hospital. She saw her father was sleeping in a chair and woke up as soon as he found out that Ellie had regained her consciousness.
  "Ellie, my daughter!" said Det.Stone merrily. He rushed to Ellie and hugged her tightly.
  "Dad. I'm sorry I've burdened you dad," said Ellie in tears.
  "No! No! No! You never burden me, kid!" said Det.Stone.
  She remembered something. She knew it was a dream, but she had to find Flint. "Dad, where's Flint? I gotta talk to him"
  "Oh Flint! Yeah I was about to tell you that! He's in a ward next to yours," explained Det.Stone.
  "Dad I must see him"
  "Yeah sure, but be careful kid 'cause you're still weak"
  "No, I'm strong. I can do it"

  She walked out of her ward and went to next door. There, she saw Flint was still unconscious, with a bandage on his forehead, just like hers, and a sling to support his right hand. He must have a broken arm. Ellie went closer to him and smiled. She knew that Flint would never leave her alone. As soon as she reached Flint, she caressed his hair and held his left hand. She knew that that wasn't a dream at all. She met him at some place and it was real that she had kissed him and had told him how she felt about him. Flint Gordon. A name of a person that she loved very much. Suddenly, and slowly, Flint was opening his eyelids. Ellie couldn't be more happier!
  "Flint..." she whispered.
  Flint looked at her and smiled weakly. "Ellie..." said Flint.
  "I... I love you"
  "I love you too..."

A Demon's Child - Part 5

  Horror. The only word that Ellie could describe the incident that she had experienced. Mr. William’s body was being investigated by the CSI unit in the restroom. Truthfully, the CSI unit had never seen such a crime like this. It was totally a vicious one. It was almost dark. Dusk. Ellie was wrapped around a thick cotton blanket. She was sitting inside an ambulance with Flint. She had just finished her checkup. A medic told Flint that she didn’t suffer from any injuries; she was only in shock and needed some time to rest and clear her mind. Ellie was petrified. For her, this was the most traumatic experience that she ever had.
  “Ellie, the medic said that you have nothing to worry about,” said Flint.
  “… Can u feel it?”
  Flint couldn’t feel anything, and apparently, he was in shock too. But not as serious as Ellie.
  “Can you feel how inhuman it was?” asked Ellie again.
  “… Yes. I do,” answered Flint.
  “Am I next, Flint? Am I the next person to be murdered?” asked Ellie.
  Flint looked into her eyes. Her terrified eyes, marinated with her tears. He knew that she was so scared.
  “What do you mean by ‘next’?” said Flint confusedly.
  “I saw… I saw the monster… It stared me in the eyes. And I looked at it,” said Ellie.
  “No… You’re not next. Nobody is next. The monster is long gone. It will not be chasing you again,” Flint was trying to comfort Ellie. However, he knew that would be a difficult task. Even though he wasn’t the one who saw the monster, but he knew that the monster killed Mr.William. Ellie continued to cry. There was no other way, except to wrap his hands around Ellie to soothe her.

  Detective Stone saw his daughter was being embraced by a guy. He used to be protective, but seeing her being soothed by a guy, he knew that was the precise act to calm her down. He approached both of them to see what he could do as a father.
  “Ellie, how are you?” asked Det. Stone.
  “Dad, I’m so sorry that I couldn’t give much information about this. I didn’t know what to say,” said Ellie in tears.
  “It’s okay girl. You have to calm down. There is nothing to be afraid of,” he replied. Then, he talked to Flint. “You”
  “I’m Flint, sir. Flint Gordon,” introduced Flint.
  “Yeah, Flint. Take my daughter home and turn on some cartoons to calm her down. I’ve some cartoons in the drawer, but don’t say any words about this anymore. Alright, son?” said Det.Stone.
  “Yes, sir. Will do sir”
  “This is the key to the house. Take her home now. I don’t want her to be involved in this case anymore” he turned around and shouted at a policeman “Powell!” The policeman ran towards Det.Stone.
  “Yes, sir?” said Powell.
  “Give these guys a ride to my house, immediately.”
  “Yes, sir. Come on kids”
  Ellie and Flint followed the policeman to the patrol car. Less than a minute, Det. Stone watched the patrol car disappeared into the dark road. He sighed. “God, why are you doing this to my daughter,” whispered Det.Stone.

  At the porch of the house, Flint was choosing the correct key to enter the house. It was already dark, so he couldn’t see very well. Finally, he could open the door with a golden key. However, before they could enter the house, someone called Ellie in the dark. It was Judith. Ellie could recognize her ponytail.
  “Ellie!” yelled Judith.
  “Judith!” said Ellie with a sulky voice. She cried again.
  Judith hugged Ellie as tight as she could, trying to calm her down. She tapped her hand on Ellie’s head. “It’s okay, it’s okay. It’s over” said Judith. But before she could go on, Flint interrupted “Girls I think we should go inside now. It’s dark out here” Flint was right. It was totally dark outside, but visible because of the moonlight and the street lamp not far from there. Flint flicked on the light switch on the wall. The living room was quite huge, with an L-shaped sofa in front of the LCD plasma television, coffee table which made from 100% invulnerable glass, and there was a crystal-like chandelier above the finely made dining table. Ellie was rich, but the way she dressed,pink long-sleeved cotton shirt and black skirt, she didn't look like one. Maybe she didn't like to brag.

  Flint went to the wooden drawer under the TV to look for the cartoons. Tom & Jerry, Scooby-Doo, The Powerpuff Girls, Dexter's Laboratory, Spongebob Squarepants and other cartoons that he didn't recognize. Ellie was a fan of cartoon, he guessed. He pushed Spongebob Squarepants's DVD into the disc slot and as soon the TV was turned on, the show started.
  "It was awful, Judith! I saw it with my own eyes! It was vicious! It was cruel!" exclaimed Ellie.
  "I know, I know. It's over, don't you worry about it okay?" said Judith.
  Flint remembered about Det.Stone's warning. "Judith, can I talk to you?" said Flint. Judith looked at Flint, knowing that it was important by looking at his expression. "Yes, sure," replied Judith. Leaving Ellie alone to watch Spongebob, they went into the kitchen and talked about the warning.
  "Judith, Det.Stone said do not let Ellie talks about this incident. So please, I beg you, stop her before she tells about it," said Flint.
  "Yeah, I know. But I couldn't say 'no' if she wants to talk to me," said Judith.
  "I know it's hard. But try, okay? She's in terrible shock from seeing Mr.William body like that. It was horrible"
  "Hm.. I'll try"
  "Thanks. It's just..." he stopped and started to sniff. He smelled something. He couldn't remember where did he smell it before, but he recognize it.
  "Are you okay?" said Judith.
  "Yeah... It's just that... Do you smell something?" asked Flint.
  "No. What is it?"
  "I smell... Blood..."
  "I don't smell anything"
  He ended the conversation and went to the kitchen window and looked outside. However, there was nothing there. It was dark and he saw nothing but trees. He didn't feel good about the stench. "Let's go back to the living room. I don't feel good about this. Come on," said Flint. 

  In the living room, Ellie was still watching the show. She looked cute when she was watching the cartoon, Flint thought. He was feeling happy to see that Ellie was recovering. He felt relieved. He came close to Ellie and put his hand around her. She smiled, meaning she had put those terrible memory behind her. He smiled too. Both of them were smiling and looking into each other's eyes. Ellie found out that Flint was absolutely innocent. He helped her. He was her hero. If it wasn't for him, she would be like Mr.William. She was so grateful that she had a friend like Flint. Was 'friend' the correct word? Was it beyond 'friendship'? She thought, it was time to upgrade their relationship.
  "Enjoying the show?" asked Flint.
  "Yeah," said Ellie. She remembered that she had something to do. Something important. "Flint. I'm really, terribly..." Before she could finish her saying. Flint interrupted.
  "Don't worry about it. I don't blame you at all. I forgive you," said Flint. He caressed Ellie's silky hair.
  Judith was watching them from the dining table. She felt like she was watching Titanic. She was so touched to see how Flint took care of Ellie. She thought, Flint was the best for Ellie. But wait, it was inappropriate for her to stay there. They probably wanted some privacy together.
  "Um? Guys? I should probably look for food in the refrigerator," lied Judith.
  "Uh? Okay. Um? Judith?" said Ellie.
  "Can you make me a peanut butter sandwich for me? I'm hungry," explained Ellie.
  "Yeah, sure. You guys have fun watching Spongebob okay?"
  Judith disappeared into the kitchen, leaving them alone in the living room.

  Smiling. That was their trademarks in this relationship. Somehow, right now, Ellie found that Flint's lips were irresistible. His smile really calmed her down. Flint looked so charming and she couldn't turn her head, even for a millisecond. Her heart beat was beating faster. Was she nervous? Or was she feeling confused?
  "Flint, thank you," said Ellie.
  "It was nothing Ellie. A friend helps his friend, right? It was my job to take care of you," replied Flint.
  "You risked your life... For me"
  "I will do anything for you Ellie. As long as you happy and safe"
  Their heads were approaching to each other. Closer and closer. Their lips were connecting, almost in contact. Just a bit more, a centimeter more.
  Glass shattering. They were astonished to hear that racket. They stood up quickly and Ellie held Flint's hand tightly, just like she did before. Their eyes went wild, observing cautiously. 
  It was Judith. Something was not right. Something went wrong in the kitchen. Flint couldn't just stand there like a fool. He must examine the kitchen and save Judith.
  "Judith!" screamed Ellie.
  "Ellie let me go! I have to save her!" said Flint bravely.
  "But what if..."
  "Hide yourself!"
  Ellie let go of Flint's hand. Flint, slowly, went into the kitchen to search for Judith. But as soon as he arrived at the kitchen, there was no one and nothing there. Except broken glasses. The kitchen window had been smashed by something. Suddenly, there was something hideous crept into the kitchen from the broken window. It was the monster that Ellie mentioned about. He stood there stationary, astonished. He couldn't move a single muscle because he was too scared. His eyes bulged to see the monster. The monster crept up to the ceiling while glaring at Flint. It let its long tongue out, hanging from its mouth, Its claws was covered in blood. From that moment, Flint knew that Judith was killed by the monster. "Flint!" screamed Ellie from the living room. "Run, Flint run!" If he stood there, the monster would easily kill him and probably kill Ellie, he thought. With nothing to lose, he ran towards Ellie and grabbed her hand and burst out from the house.

  They ran into the forest. Flint was still new at this place so he wasn't really sure where he was going. The forest was pitch dark and it was misty beneath them. "Keep running forward! There's a biker pub at the end of the forest! We can ask for their help. Here! Follow me!" said Ellie. Now she was the one leading Flint. They were sprinting as if they didn't understand the word exhausted. They weren't holding hands anymore. Whether they were confused or holding hands were slowing them down. They didn't care. As long as both of them would be safe. 

  Suddenly, Ellie felt like she was running alone. She was right as she looked back, Flint was gone. The mist was thick and she couldn't find Flint anywhere. "Ellie!" She heard Flint screaming her name. However, it sounded so far away. "Flint! I'm right here!" There was no answer. "Flint!" Silence. Wait. What was that noise? It sounded squishy and she could hear that it was above her. She kept on running, afraid that the monster would get her if she stayed so long. She suddenly felt tired and she leaned on a tree to catch her breath. She felt that her left shoulder was wet, soaked with slimy liquid. She touched it and it was sticky and stinky. It was coming from above. She looked up and there it was, crawling down the tree. She moved but didn't move far. The monster was very fast. And now, she was trapped between the big rocks. She was cornered. The monster crept closer and sticked its tongue out gallantly. "Please don't hurt me!" begged Ellie. The monster didn't care. It leaped at her, just like a hungry wolf. WHAAMM! Suddenly, the monster fell on the ground and lay still. It wasn't dead but it fell unconscious, giving her time to run. But why did the monster fall? It was Flint! He struck the monster's head with a piece of tree trunk. Ellie was so glee to see Flint. He saved her again! "Come on! We better hurry before that monster wakes up!" said Flint while offering his hand to Ellie. Ellie took his hand and stood up. They continued to flee away from the monster.

  Bikers were glaring at them in the pub. They didn't like to see anyone burst into their pub freely. They must be well known bikers or they would be casted out from the pub. However, it was strange to see dirty teenagers, panting at the door. "What are yer doing here kids?" said the bar tender. He was kind of fat with tattoos on his both arm. He had a long beard and long brown hair and a patched eye.
  "We need help! Our friend has been killed by a monster!" said Ellie.
  "Ey monster? Are yer trying to make fun of us kids?" said the bartender.
  "By monster she meant someone ya fool!" said one of the bikers.
  The bar tender grinned. "Yer think this is ey police station kids? We no helpers! But we do have guns if yer like," said the bartender grimly.
  "We just thought if we stay here, we will be safe. We need your help! Some maniac is after us! To kill us!" said Flint.
  "I'll see what I can do lad. But if yer willing to give the girl to me"
  Some of the bikers stood up while grinning at them. Flint knew that coming here was a very bad idea. He'd rather confront the monster than these 'monsters'.
  "Look guys. We are trying to find help. We don't want another problem," said Flint.
  "Are yer scared kids? You should be lad"
  While Flint was talking to them to protect Ellie, Ellie heard something outside. Just like the sound she heard in the woods. She turned her head, slowly. There was it again! Outside! It saw Ellie looking at it through the pub's door. It took its position to start leaping again. "Flint! Look out!" screamed Ellie while pushing Flint to the floor. The monster leapt while spreading its claws, It burst into the pub and clawed one of the bikers neck. It had decapitated one of the bikers. Blood sprayed on the bartender's face. "What the fuck is that!?" screamed the bartender. The monster leapt everywhere and killed anyone who got in its way. The pub had become a slaughter house. It was a total havoc. The bartender returned to the bar to get his shotgun. He shot continuously but none of it hit the monster. The monster was still out loose. The monster kept killing all the people in the bar. Decapitation, neck ravaging, impaling and more leaping. It was a massacre.

  Flint and Ellie were still on the floor, taking cover. Then, in the madness, Flint saw a key on the table. He stood up and quickly grabbed the key and ran out of there with Ellie. He tried the key on every bike that had parked outside the pub. Some didn't fit the keyhole. Some did fit but he couldn't turn the engine on. At last, the key worked on one of the bike, painted in black with flaming shape. "Hop on!" yelled Flint in hurry. The bike roared as he pressed the engine. They left without thinking about the bikers's safety.

  The road was dark, the only light that could assist them was the bike's light. "There! Go into the forest! You'll find a small road that will lead us to the police station! It's a shortcut!" explained Ellie. Flint did what she asked him to do. She was right. There was a small road in the forest. But he had to be careful. He might hit the trees. Suddenly, something jumped out of the darkness and stood proudly in front of them. Not again! It was the monster! Flint dodged the monster by turning the handle. And he rushed into the woods. He heard that Ellie was screaming from behind, worried that they might hit a tree. But they didn't expecting a huge log in front of them. "Look out!" Flint accidentally hit it and the bike's front tyre disintegrated. The bike was like a catapult, throwing Flint and Ellie into the air, Ellie fell hard on her back. She didn't know where Flint was now. Was she dying? Her vision was blurry. Everything was so unclear. She couldn't see very much. She couldn't move, or scream. She lay still on the cold ground, waiting for Death to come and take her. All of a sudden, but she wasn't really sure, an entity was right above her, looking at her. She knew it was the monster. She didn't want to feel the pain of her death. She closed her eyes, tightly and had given up. It was time to put an end here.
