I went to the kitchen and started making dinner. I decided to make spaghetti.
BEN walked into the kitchen and put his hands on my shoulder, peering into the pot on the stove.
"Whatcha making?" he asked without looking away from the pot.
He sounded a like a little boy, and I smiled.
After a few minutes BEN got bored and went to go play video games as usual.
I finished making dinner and set the table.
As I was setting up the table LJ came downstairs. I hadn't noticed him as I put food on everyone's plates. When I was done I turned around and bumped into him.
"Sor-ry..." I looked up and saw LJ. He looked down at me and smiled. I noticed his sharp teeth and pointy nose.
My eyes widened and I couldn't move.
"You're the new maid right?" He said as he bent down closer to my face.
He smiled wider and picked up a strand of my hair with his finger.
"You're a pretty little thing."
My legs were shaking so much I'm surprised they didn't give out.
In that moment I felt someone pulling me by my shoulders.
I looked behind me and saw Jeff. I fell against his chest and he put his arm around my shoulder.
"That's enough LJ." He said in a protective tone.
"Aw Jeff protecting his little princess. How cute." LJ laughed.
If I wasn't so scared I would have punched him.
I heard Jeff growl behind me.
"She's not my princess. Can't you see she's scared? Oh, wait I forgot you can only see black and white since your owner abandoned you."
I could tell Jeff hit a nerve by the way LJ's expression changed. His smile turned into a frown and his loose stance became stiff. He rose to his full 8 ft.
height and looked down at me and Jeff, glaring.
I didn't think LJ could get any more terrifying than he was before.
"Jeff?..." I said quietly.
He shoved me out of the way and took out his knife.
I landed on the floor and looked up at Jeff and LJ.
"Jeff wait-" Before I could finish Jeff rushed at LJ, out for blood.
Before Jeff could get to him LJ teleported in a puff of black smoke.
My eyes widened and a couple seconds later I felt a hand grip my neck and lift me off the ground.
I tried to scream but I was having trouble getting air into my lungs. I tried not to panic as LJ chuckled.
Jeff looked and saw LJ choking me. He growled angrily.
"Let her go you fucking circus freak."
He aimed his knife to throw it at LJ.
My eyes widened and I shook my head to try and tell him not to throw it.
I had a feeling if he did LJ would use me as a shield.
Jeff lowered his knife and clenched his fist.
LJ smiled and let go of my neck.
I dropped to the floor and coughed desperately trying to get air into my lungs.
LJ teleported away leaving nothing but a puff of black smoke behind.
Jeff rushed over to me and knelt down. "You ok?"
"Y-yeah." I managed to say through coughs. "You... tried to save me?"
He looked to the side and cleared his throat. "Well yeah if you die who'll make dinner and clean my room?"
I laughed a little.
He looked at my neck. It was bruised pretty bad.
"That fucking clown." He said under his breath.
"I'm ok. SHIT I forgot to get cups!" I ran to the cabinet and grabbed some glasses. I ran to put them on the table.
Jeff grabbed one from the cabinet and sat down.
Everyone started to come for dinner as I was still frantically getting cups and setting them on the table.
I rushed past a boy with a yellow jacket almost bumping into him.
"Hey watch it!."
"Oh sorry!" I turned and saw he had a white mask that looked pretty feminine.
He ignored me and went to sit down. A boy with a yellow hoodie and black ski mask followed him.
I grabbed the last glass and put it on the table. I looked around the table and noticed the boy that sat next to the one with the mask had red eyes and a red frown stitched into his mask.
Slender came downstairs not long after everyone sat down. He looked at me and I guess raised an eyebrow? It was hard to tell since he didn't have facial features.
I expected him to ask what happened to my neck but he didn't and sat down with the others.
