The First Click
After hearing Alex’s tone, Beth felt that something horrible was going to happen, but when she tried to grab Alex, she saw how he started to run towards the park, once she lost sight of him, she went inside to attend to Lucia, who was trying to get up even with what had recently happened.
Lucia: Mr. Alex-
Beth: Careful sweetheart, you can’t be moving, don’t worry about my star….
He will be fine, he will bring Mona back, you need to rest.
(Star…please be careful).
When Alex arrives at the park, he can see a group of children around where Lucia was before, along with a grown man looking up at the tree.
Child 1: But dad! She was here a few minutes ago, I swear!
Boy 2: It must have been the monster, he came and ate her when none of us were here!
Boy 3: At least it didn’t eat us, but we’re still not lying, sir!
When Alex could see well, he could notice that the third child had something in his hands, it was Mona.
Alex after seeing this approached slowly from behind the children and the adult who did not notice that he had arrived at the park.
Adult: I will have to inform Caney, if it really was Lucia then….
At that moment the children screamed at the sight of Alex, it took a few seconds but eventually the adult turned around and could see Alex’s face, one of his eyes was a yellowish color which lit up so brightly that it caused a shadow on the tree and while his face was a raw fusion of feelings, mainly IRA.
Alex: So you were the brats that did it, were you?
Children: IT’S THE MONSTER!
Father: Alex! You can’t be scaring my son and his friends like that, I’ll have to report you to Can-.
At that moment the adult was grabbed by the neck, while the children were grabbed at the same time with Alex’s other arm. You could see the Adult losing his breath and trying to get Alex’s hand off of him from above.
Father: L-let go of me…you…damn…monster….
Alex: Wait for your turn.
Alex throws him like nothing in the opposite direction to the man, causing him to run through and hit one of the trees in the park, knocking the air out of him. Alex’s attention now turns to the children, who look at Alex in terror.
Boy 3: The monster is going to eat us!!!
Child 2: MOM!
At that moment Alex still with that terrified look asked the children.
Alex: She didn’t do anything to you.
Boy 1: S-she deserved it! She’s a witch!!!! She’s a witch-
Boy 2: I-it’s true, only a witch would talk to a monster!!!!
Alex was silent for a few moments, his smile got bigger, and his pupils dilated more as he said this to the children.
Alex: Do you want to see a real monster?
In a mere moment, the children looked at Alex’s eyes, and after a few seconds, Alex dropped them to the ground and his gaze became neutralized as well as his eye. All 3 kids simply stood there perplexed with a fixed stare and blank expression on their faces. Next to the first child, the doll on the ground, which Alex grabbed, could be seen, was completely destroyed…
It was then that he looked towards the children, but not without noticing the crowd of people around the park, adults hugging their children who were terrified of what they saw, old people staring at Alex, at that moment Rudolph could be seen in the crowd.
From there a woman was seen trying to make her way through the crowd, this being Beth who was, when she arrived to see what had happened, Beth immediately tried to run towards Alex, but Rudolph was the one holding her back: Everyone was afraid of the monster Alex…all except one person.
Lucia: Mr. Alex!
Sneaking through the crowd, little Lucia, who looked in better shape than before, managed to get within a few feet of Alex, before he screamed.
Alex: GET AWAY FROM ME!
A strong wind caused Lucia to be propelled towards the crowd, the only person who stood up was Rudolph, who did it with great difficulty, it was only once he did that Alex observed and processed what happened…
Once he did that, he ran, he ran into the woods near his home and didn’t stop, not for a second did he look back, he just wanted to get out of there and never come back.
Alex sees himself getting in somewhat deep before finally coming out into a more open area, the trees blooming and a waterfall with water lilies in it, still Alex moves through the trees erratically, this causes him to stumble and fall into the somewhat flat water, when he gets up the first thing he sees is his face, and in the reflection of the water, it begins to distort to show the face he had when he held the children.
This is what you are, and what you will always be, a monster.
Alex: SHUT UP!!!
After saying that Alex proceeds to hit the ground, causing a warp and rumble in the forest as he runs to the side of the waterfall, where a wooden sign is propped up, covering what appears to be a cave in the waterfall, yet Alex simply ignores it and bursts over the board, breaking it as he runs into the hole where there is only pure darkness.
