Bathe In Blood – 2

Dad and Sam were long gone. Mom is out in the garden watering her flowers. It’s summer vacation and all of my friends are out of town. We are going to our aunt’s place in  Ohio next week, so we’ll be here in Almont for a few days. I can see that this is going to be a boring vacation. I hate these long vacations, they’re as boring as heck!

With nothing to do and the whole day ahead of me, I feel that there is nothing better than taking a nap. I turned on my iPod and listened to a few Coldplay tunes, when I fell sound asleep. I hear a ring coming from afar.. It sounds like my cellphone. Is this a dream? I finally opened my eyes reluctantly and grabbed my cell phone from the side table.

“Hello?”, I said with a sleepy voice.

“Hi Eva! How are you?”

“Hey Iris. I’m fine, thanks. How about you?”

“I’m doing great. It’s fun here in Auburn! I’m going out to the skateboard park with my brothers today. What about you? Having fun back there in Almont?”

“Nah, it’s boring here. I’ve got nothing to do lately!”

“Ah, I see. You should go out somewhere. Oops, Eva I’ve got to go. They’re calling me. I’ll talk to you later and have a good day!

“Thanks, Iris. Have fun! Bye.”

“Bye.”

That was Iris, one of the most talkative and hyper-active friend I’ve ever had. She’s always doing something cool and fun. I wish I was doing something  right now. I’m suddenly awake all of a sudden and I’m feeling very thirsty. I’ll go down to the kitchen and fetch a glass of water.

I went to garden to have a look at mom and she wasn’t there. Where could she be?

“Mom, Are you here?” I scouted all around the house but she wasn’t there. She’s definitely at aunt Beck’s place next door I thought. Ah, these old women and their family talk…

Bathe In Blood – 1

It’s been days since I have stepped outside the house. I’ve been ignoring calls from friends and relatives because it feels like I no longer have the voice to talk to them. I’d rather be alone, for at least I feel a lot safer here. These last few days have been very weird. What I have seen, I just cannot explain. Is it a dream or is it reality? This is a question I’ve been asking myself a thousand times. I still remember last Monday. I didn’t know…I just didn’t know…

(Last Monday)

“Eva, come down for breakfast honey. The boys are in a hurry to go fishing today! ” . Mom stood in the kitchen, looking up at me coming down the stairs. She had a big smile on her face like always. At 45, she looks younger than her age. She is a peaceful woman, loves everyone and everything around her and sells home-made crafts. Everyone calls her Ab, her real name being Abby Garcia.

“Hey Princess! Make sure you don’t go too far into the woods today.Stay with your mom. We heard romours of the Martians entering town yesterday. They might be camping in the woods”. Dad had his common grin that looked pretty evil at times and stuffed a large piece of the sandwich into his mouth like he was in some eating contest. He has a sense of humour that could get rather irritating sometimes. People call him Rocky while his real name is Ron Garcia. He is a farmer.

My little brother, Sam eats his breakfast quietly. He doesn’t talk all that much. But I doubt that it’s just because he’s bored with talking to us. He is a hardcore metal-head,the kind who’d prefer praying to the likes of Metallica rather than Jesus Christ. At 16, he has been busy the last few days finding members for his first heavy metal band.

“Are you done yet Sam?”, dad cried out loud with a hint of restlessness to his voice. He loved going out for fishing.

“Yes dad, let’s go.”, said Sam swallowing the last piece of his sandwich.
