The Boy Who Lived in Darkness " Will I ever be happy?"
"The years pass and I'll never be able to bring them back. I'm missing on so many things. Will I ever find someone to love me the way i am? I wish to find someone to make me forget the pain i feel in my soul and body"...
These were the thoughts of a young man which lived all his life in darkness, alone, without talking to someone, without having a friend. Never seeing the light of the sun or the rays of the moon, not even the little glimpse which were entering through the little holes of his cage. For the world outside, he was a monster. Afraid of his cursed golden eyes, the humans took his light with a spell that they learned from the young man clan. He has been cursed never to open his eyes, unless someone he loves kisses them. But the years were passing and nobody came and slowly he faded away without knowing the mercy of those called humans. Year after year, humans pursued and killed all the "monsters", afraid of them because they could take the form of a spider in their rage. It is said, that after 500 years , the bloodline has vanished from this world or got mixed up with human blood and was forgotten.... It’s raining again but I still can't escape the blood taste from my mouth
" It looks like they were bitten by a large animal"
" What? I can't remember having such an aggressive animal in this small town.” said the one who was taking care of the forest, while on his forehead drops of sweat started falling from his forehead. He was shocked since he entered the little room, painted in blood, which belonged to his men. From outside, the new detective came in, looking around and faking a sickness at the image in front of him.
" Bitten? The corpse looks suspicious.” Then he started mumbling something like "Only darkness inside. Bad dog.". But he couldn't finish what he was thinking, because a scream from outside took all the attention. An officer, which was looking around in the forest, found a young boy laying naked and in the fetus position, in a bed of red flowers, not looking older than seventeen years . He had beautiful long hair, but his body was filled with scars. The police noticed broken chains on his arms. In their eyes he became suspect number one. They took him out of the forest . The boy didn't fought back. He was feeling numb , not caring about what was happening around him. To weak to run away.
" Detective?” said an officer. "I see you are new here. Will you be the one interrogating him?"
"Yes. I'm detective Ayame." Said the young detective.
" Be careful. He already bite the nurse who tried to take care of him while she was washing his wounds"
"Oh... I see. So we have a stray puppy around us."
In the hospital room, the detective found the boy looking through the window, having only a sheet on him, with all the scars on his back showing. One of the officers said with a low voice" poor kid" when he turned their side.
"No! That isn't a kid anymore. Look at his golden eyes. They are piercing us. Checking us like a wild animal. Waiting to feed. I have no doubt he killed those innocent people from the forest hut. " said an other scared by the boys appearance. He still had blood on his hands, face and hair, and his golden eyes were looking like two candles, burning everyone souls.
" Let me alone with him". Said the young detective Ayame. Even if the others said that he might be dangerous the detective said he’ll be ok , because he is like him in a way, and the others should not worry.
" Yes! ... The color of the blood suits you better. I see you have the same smell like my "princess". Two stray dogs in this world. Two monsters, in the humans eyes. But you can keep your pretty face even if you get angry". Said the detective smiling. " I didn't killed them"
" I didn't killed them"
The young boy started hardly telling over and over' I couldn't kill the only people who took care of me, even if they caused me pain everyday"
" Oh! So you can speak." Said the detective with sadness in his eyes. He knew what the kid was. He knew that the man who took care of the forest and his men kept the boy there since he was little. He felt pity. He was a monster himself. He had "cursed" eyes since the moment he opened them the first time. He could see the persons past , while gazing in their eyes, like an open book.
The past he saw in the boys eyes was filled with darkness and suffering. From a young age the boy was beaten because of his eyes, which were shining in dark more beautiful than the sunlight on a bright day. The one who found him in a small cave was the forest keeper . He spent there more than 250 years.
" Let me tell you a little story."
" Your father was a normal human but your mother is a monster. But before she died in pain, after that man raped her and beat her up, she was a human too. The monster side came from the hate and suffering. Because you see, she wanted revenge for all that happend. She had the hideous shape of a spider, feeding only with on humans. It seems you were found in a cocoon, inside of a human corpse. They knew that you weren't normal but from the moment you opened those beautiful eyes of yours, they got afraid recalling about a long forgotten stories, about monsters with golden eyes. So they locked you in a cage made in the basement of the hut, calling you" monster" and beating you every day. How can you tell me you loved them?
But two days ago screams could be heard from the house. You escaped the cage and what you saw was pure darkness. All the room was covered in blood and above you a huge monster in a spider shape and it looked like it had human skin. Every vein had a blue color toward green and was smelling like a rotten corpse. She was feeding from one of them while the blood was falling upon you like a heavy rain. The beast threw up the corpse in front of you and started licking your face with her long tongue and started to rub her body against yours. But one shot stopped her. Behind you, you saw a girl with black hair and black piercing eyes, looking the same as me . And she said - Down Kao. Your master will punish you again-. You ran away in the forest, scared. Because of your open wounds, you fainted in that sea of flowers. There your past film stops."
"Don't be afraid of "her". We are your family"
"Poor kid!" I'll be taking care of you. Don't be scared. I found you at last. The only child that my "princess" gave birth.
After those words the hospital burned and only one body was found. It was the body of the real detective.
"Kao! How could you forget about your son. I’m still paying for the sin i committed years ago. I was a coward and let my sister suffer. I could not oppose our father when they took you at that place where you died alone.
" I feel so bad that she lost her heart and that innocent smile" said the young women from the room. “Now she is only a beast. She forgot how beautiful she was”.
The police closed the case after a few weeks. For them, the number one suspect has died and his dead was regarded as a suicide. After another week the young detective vanished from the town, without leaving a trace.
" Mother. You are beautiful , the way you look now"
In front of the boy was a small girl in chains, not taller than 165 cm, with short black hair , which looked like she didn't had more than fifteen years, skinny and white like the milk, with big black eyes. From her fangs , some kind a liquid was falling. Near him stood the young lady and the detective.
