I was laying in bed then I heard the door moving. This was nothing special.
My mind always plays tricks on me and makes me think something is wrong
I learned to ignore my paranoia and tried to sleep again. Till something was off.
I heard the door again, but the sound was different.
more detailed and slower.
I tried to ignore it again and almost fell asleep.
but then ...
I don't know what happened.
I just needed to stand up out of bed.
dressed in my sleeping clothes, which were not more than jogging pants and a shirt,
I made my way to the door.
I tried to walk as normally as possible.
it wouldn't be anything anyway.
there is never something.
I looked at the entrance and as I thought...
was the door open?
It wasn't much but I clearly saw it open.
I could've forgotten to close it.
that also happens to me once in a while.
I'm just an airhead.
I moved to the door and closed it.
not a big deal! locked it too, just to be sure.
In the corner of my eye, I saw something.
the window was also open?
strange! I only open two windows in this flat.
and this was none of them.
whatever. must've forgotten about it.
I even lost my car keys despite them being in my pocket the whole time.
"stop worrying," I thought
and went to bed again.
I kindly ignored
the person standing in the corner
Hopefully, I imagined him either.
happens all the time
I woke up again.
why can't I just sleep for once?
the noises the floor made were unusually loud.
grabbed my arm.
pulling me out of bed.
a creature roughly looking like a person.
was holding me upwards.
pressing me against the wall.
long and thin arms with an astonishing force in them.
and similar long and thin legs carrying its Body
I was weirdly reminded of a water skipper.
It had no eyes but pretty big ears.
nostrils large enough to fit an egg in it.
and a mouth full of sharp-looking teeth.
am I too calm in this situation?
I couldn't help but wonder if our teeth are similarly ordered.
it started talking in an almost growling voice.
he expressed every word he said as detailed as possible
I couldn't agree, I forgot to take a bath today.
the creature opened its wide mouth
making a long and sharp tongue visible.
his mouth approached my face slowly.
and I just couldn't help it.
I bit its tongue off.
it screamed loudly.
and let go of my arm.
black looking blood came out of its mouth.
coughing and crying in pain.
I grabbed its arm then it tried to push me away.
"didn't you want to do this to me?"
I firmly grabbed its hands
and bit some of its fingers off.
way too loud if you ask me.
"be quiet," I asked it politely, "you'll wake up my neighbors"
then I got a good hold of its throat and squeezed it enough for it to stop screaming.
not as if it didn't try, it just couldn't make a sound like that anymore.
"you know! this is your fault!"
I continued by devouring its arm.
"I ignored your presence and you just attacked me!"
the creature tried its best to loosen my grip.
"I really don't like doing this!"
I broke its legs and the other arm to keep it from moving too much.
"I really hate this!"
I walked outside for a moment to get a blowtorch and a knife.
"Everybody knows monster meat is best at medium."
the panicked gurgling sounds which the creature made continued to the very end.
the moment I reached its hearts.
This creature got two hearts, less than the last one.
It luckily didn't bleed that much.
cleaning up wasn't such a mess.
but I'm used to things like this.
it happens every time.
