My name is Margaux and I was pretty scared and close to death and i guess I can’t make it alive when I’ve been fighting my friend Lance.
I’m running that night so fast I didn’t notice some distorted roots in my way and i stumble into the ground and broke my legs. I tried to rise up but i cannot move because the sprain hurts a lot so i crawled slowly just to escape him.
I heard the crows from the sky squeak as they are flooded in a flocks like some festive comes to its way followed by the howling of the werewolves nearby and the eerie sounds of the leaves coming from the trees. These sounds are terrible especially when i saw the full moon devoured the whole sky with its shining lightning. Maybe death awaits me but I need to take my chances.
I sighed and slowly the clouds beyond the skylight bruised deeper, until the sky was dark. There are simultaneous howling of the werewolves somewhere in the forest. Sounds like they found a prey in the middle of the night followed by the gush of winds swept away the dried falling leaves from the tall trees. Then, a thin shaft of moonlight shone in, hitting the monstrous bamboo trees nearby. I feel sudden chill and my heart beat faster. Those flora and faunas coming from the forest tend to be the hiding place of some evil spirits haunting humans. There is something behind those beauties that lies into the darkness.
I hugged the trunk of the tree until i reach the stick. I hold it so tight but when i face backward he manage to land the knife in my shoulder, the sharp edge pierce slashing my skin and some blood stain my shirt so i hit him in the side of his abdomen with such strength. The full force succeeded and he falls into the ground, the knife landed to somewhere so i take my chance to escape but in a glance he quickly stand and punch my face. Blood comes out from my mouth and i stumbled into the ground like a rag doll. My lips contorted with a pain and the blow gives me a dizzy feeling and something irritate my throat and i cough hard followed by some drop of blood until my vision went wrong but then he turned his direction and he holds my neck with both of his hands. Lance looked at me angrily, he stared at me with his fiery eyes.He held me back against the bark of the tree and he chokes me to death, i tried to scratch his fist i force his hands to release my neck but my hands slips and i cannot do anything.
I tried to speak with my rattled voice..”La……Lance….what are you do……doing? I can……..not breath…..pl……….e….a…..s…..e” my vision are getting blurred and i gasp for a breath but he never stop to what he had done.
“You…. evil…..you must die…!” His expression is ferocious like a wild animal in the forest. His eyes got a menacing glance like he’s not a human anymore.
“Wha…….t are…………you……talking …….a…….bout?”
For a few minutes he never response but something happen and before i close my eyes someone hit him and bumped his head. He releases my neck as i fainted and out of breath i fall into the ground and collapsed.
Some moments passed and I open my eyes there he is my ex-boyfriend Thomas carried me and both my hands rested in his shoulder.
“Lance is dead. I killed him because he wants to kill you.” Thomas said with a caring and passionate voice.
It was hard to comprehend and i felt a little guilt and pain with what happened especially with my other friends.
“Where are the others?”
“I’m sorry Margaux they are all dead. Shaina killed Brent because of hatred before she killed herself. Martin got some blisters with his whole body and he consumes a lot of blood. I saw him lying in the bed lifeless and Lance……..
“Stop it!!! Save me and take me home… I want to go home … i want to go home please.” I was sobbing and shivering with cold that night. My heart broke into pieces with this tragic experience in the province.
“Ok!!!ok stop crying. Tomorrow we will be sailing and I’ll send you back to the city and I’ll go with you to protect you wherever you will go. I love you.” Thomas kisses my forehead.
I felt assurance and love but then something was terrible and i am pretty much confused with what he said…. “I’ll go with you wherever you will go.”
“What did you say? You cannot go with me forever i mean yes I love you but we we’re never be together forever….i mean…..
He smirks and i saw a devilish look and his eyes are getting bigger like a psychotic patient.
“We cannot be separated because of our eternal love.” He said with a foolish idea of love.
“You’re insane…let me go!!!!!!ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Help!!!!!! Help!!!!!!! I shouted with all my hearts but he punches my stomach so hard until my strength finally drained. He sends me in a nearby hut and closes the door.
I open the door of the hut and put Margaux in a wooden bed with such care because of her painful sprain. She is unconscious and with this kind of situation it is the best way to operate my plan. I don’t want her to leave me and I do believe that we can be together forever; no one can break us apart. But, in some minutes passed i manage to put her some oils in her body to make her feel dizzy and defenseless. I put oils in her hand, face and arms and as she opens her teary eyes i saw how deep her agony through sobbing so i tell her the truth.
“Margaux i’m sorry for what I’ve done. I knew exactly that you make a request to cast me a love spell coming from my aunt just to prove to your friends that you are the best among them. But I need my friends to come along with you because of revenge to repay what they had done to me. I admit, i never allowed them to copy all my answers from the test form and they lose scholarship grants and admiration of their parents so they ask my aunt to make a spell to kill me and i was in a verge of death during my college days. I suffered terrible fever and every day I spills blood. My aunt notices my sufferings and she was shocked in terror because accidentally she almost killed me and we became the victims of this circumstances. So to take revenge, my aunt taught me voodoo and love spell and by doing those stuffs i can be invincible. I’ll send you here because i want to prove my love for you and i want to kill our friends here in the province. Yes!!! I am the witch and now that you are here… nothing can separate us apart. Hahahahahahahaha”
I felt dizzy and weak. My body felt paralyze i cannot move a muscle but i stared to his face and my nightmare comes to life. His face becomes dark like a smoldering molten burning his soul. He releases something from his pocket… a small wooden doll with several black hairs on its head. I tried to think about the purpose of the wooden doll but my eyes became bigger with terror when i realized something. The wooden doll represents me and he manipulates my body. My head and my heart begun to rumble and i want to explode into pieces until i saw a needle and he pierced it through the different parts of my body: hands, arms, shoulder, stomach while restating a long prayer or maybe a cursed of an evil: advocatus diabolicum as i was about to feel excruciating in pain like the needle slash my whole skin and peeled it inside my organs.
Cruciatu intolerabili afflictus…..
Tardius occidere eam…….
Iungo nostrum usque ad mortem…….
I cannot shout because there are no sounds coming from my voice. Sweat and tears mixes up in my body. His prayers seems to be dark even though i can’t fully understand i knew he kills me slowly to destroy me little by little. No one can save me from this suffering and i want to die soon rather than feel it longer. But Thomas sends me verdict, he recitated a much higher crescendo prayer.
Dimittite eam ad mortem……
DIMITTITE EAM AD MORTEM!!!!!!!!!!!!
He shouted with all his breath and for a few moments of his efforts my heart came to a halt and my breath ceased until i was dead.
I recitated a long prayer and i finally succeeded to kill her. I opened my eyes and i saw her eyes drop without breath. I was in shocked that i felt a sudden thump in my heart and i pumped her chest to revive her but she didn’t react. I close my ear to her mouth but still there’s no reaction. I open her mouth and make mouth-to mouth resuscitations until i witnessed my hands burning with fire came from nowhere. It burned my flesh up to my shoulder then to the head and spread all over my whole body.
I shouted with all those pain until the fire spread into the whole hut and burned us all after some explosion shake the forest that night. All our loves gone and the memories of my friends turned into ashes.
Thomas Levine is a typical varsity player and Margaux Sales had a crush on him but her friends teased her to make him her lover so one evening she paid a witch to make a love spell and she finally succeeded to pursue Thomas to drink the potion and he fell in love with her. They became lovers but circumstances separate them until Thomas meet high-class socialize friends The friendship last until they reached college but then become rough through hardships. Final Test arrive and his four shallow minded friends tried to copy his examination form but he protected his credibility and pride so as the result, they failed the examination and the scholarship grants lose. They are exterminated in the Deans Lister and the parents got mad and disappointed. Anger and humiliation encircled their minds. The four high-class students offered a big amount of money exchange for the death of Thomas. Little did they know, the witch is the aunt of Thomas and they have no idea to what could be the result of these consequences.
Terror and guilt, the aunt discovered that his nephew become the victim of her witchcraft. So to repent the sin, she taught him voodoo and love spell in order to reciprocate and erase the wrong doing. That’s why they lived in a forest in the province to avoid isolation and Thomas waited for the summer vacation to invite his friends to joined him together with Margaux.
He pretends to be a loving friend despite of what his friends done he forgave them and they enjoyed the summer vacation but not in a long run. Little by little he poisoned their minds and recited different evil orations to succumb evil spirits to frightened his friend but her aunt told her that he must not allowed witchcraft to control his personality because it is the exchange of the soul to devil and he die soon if he consume a lot of witchcraft. But Thomas was stubborn and he continued to cast spells to reunite with his ex-girlfriend and his friends.
So to repay the sin, they tasted the pain of death through witchcraft.
