I’ve been running
How long, I do not know
The screaming continues
The walls, they speak things
The halls, only resonate suffering
I’m not sure what I’m supposed to do
I turn the corner
I’m hit all at once
One moment I see the halls of this ship
The next it flickers into the walls of home
The ship bringing blood and darkness
My home, my daughters smiling face
The shifting continues
Soon there is blood running from her head
I just need to reach my Isabella
Yes…that’s all I need to do
I continue after her smiling
Now bleeding face
As she and my home
Fade in and out
It begins to feel as though I’m slowing
Almost running in place
I must press forward!
I have to save her
Her blood flows from her head to her toes
It runs down the floor
Still…she is smiling?
Arms reached out, like she wants my embrace
A hug from her father?
Something is out of place…
Then I reach her and all goes dark again
As the lights come on
That sick woman’s laughing is all I hear instead
Written in blood on the floor
Is the word
What is this?!
A low tapping echoes from ahead
I look up and there is a door
I’m quite sure there wasn’t one there before…
I can hear a voice speaking from the room
The words echo from the walls
In blood as I walk
They begin to appear on the walls
All up and down the hallway
I walk in and then I see exactly what it is
To my shock…
IT’S MY BROTHER JIM!!!!!!
I’m in the room again…
The night I went for that visit
He wanted to play a card game
Then he gets up and I hear him whispering
Jim? I remember asking from the other room
I entered the room to find a gun to his head
He was still whispering
A smile, a pull of the trigger…
I collapsed to the floor
He died smiling
The walls painted red
They now began to form words
Spread all over the walls in blood
The room shifts
There is no longer a way out
I’m here for a moment
The words on the walls say why
Then I’m back in that room
There are images of Jim all around me
Pulling the trigger again
All at once,
Their dead bodies falling!
Everything goes dark
As it lights up again
I see all over the walls
I’m sick of living…
Smiling when I’m dying inside
I’m sick of living a lie!
She should just leave you!
I..we…talked about this
You were always off on a mission
That’s no way to raise a family Jim
She was lonely
I’d always loved her secretly too
We began to talk
SHE LOVES ME ERIC!
She only denies it because of you
When you’re around
She’s afraid to tell you the truth…
It’s suddenly, oh ERIC, I LOVE YOU!
She tells me keep quiet
I’ll have no chance at being with her again
She has me emotionally tortured inside
I’ve never been so conflicted in my life!
*Audio Playback Ends*
The room lit up
The blood soaked corridors of the ship
They were almost inviting
Was this true?
Or just another game?
I wasn’t sure anymore
I walked out the room
The door there once again
…Into the madness of this ship…
