My first post
This is apparently my first post from about 2 years ago. It's mostly the same, just some minor changes here and there. There wasn't any inspiration for this. It just popped into my head and I wrote it out. Here it is:
The baby stared at me, making my insides churn. This was no normal baby - whatever passes for normal these days - no, this baby had large eyes that it stared at you with. 'Aww, cute!' One might think, but they'd be wrong. It was creepy with its fully green eyes and yellow irises. The size of those eyes were larger than any humans' eyes that I've ever seen. Actually everything about the baby was huge, with the exception of tiny sharp teeth. It had layers of glistening greasy fat stomach rolls covered in blood that melted into one another, its mouth where all that blood on the stomach spilled out from was as big as a human head, and its appetite was the biggest thing of all.
It did not speak, but it communicated. ‘Feed.’ That was the word that was constantly popping up in my mind. The baby would plant that word there. If I did not feed it, it would not cry, but wail. Horrifying sounds coming from that horrifying mouth. And so, I fed it. Dogs, cats, whatever pleased its ginormous appetite.
One day, it communicated more words than ever before: ‘Feed me a baby. I want a baby.’ Panicked and petrified I shook my head. No, this is where I drew the line. No more. The wails came but I ignored them. Then began the screams. I’ve never heard them before as I always gave into the demands before too long. Its face twisted and contorted into a nightmare and I was at my breaking point.
“Please stop!!” I begged.
But it only grew louder. I screamed along with it, holding my ears and wanting to rip out my hair. Out of nowhere, almost as if the world ceased to spin and sound no longer existed, we both stopped. I waited for something to happen, anything at all, but nothing did. There was still silence. Was the baby gone? Have I defeated it by not giving into its demands? Did it go somewhere else? I was scared to look up from the floor.
‘Feed me a baby.’ Came the words into my mind again. My heart and stomach dropped. It was still here, staring at me. I didn't move. 'FEED ME A BABY!" It screamed into my mind. With tears in my eyes, I complied.
