The Hidden: Chapter 9
Approx time: unknown
I jolted awake from my head being smacked really hard. I saw a man in front of me. He looked at me as if he hated me. I could feel that hate inside of him. It was like he knew me somehow and never liked me. I looked at him the same way. He hit me again. I could only guess it was for looking at him the same. I looked around, and saw i was in a dark room with the only source of light being a hand made window in the stone wall. It was small and only let in a ray of light from the wall, above the man's head. I noticed I was on my knees, handcuffed with my hands behind me. I don't know when I was handcuffed but I must've been asleep because I don't remember it ever happening to me. I looked at the man and asked him where I was but he didn't andswer me.
I asked him again, but still no answer. I was getting aggrivated now, "Hey!! Where am I?!" Once again, no reply. I sat there angry and confused and looked down at the floor. A man came in through a door on my right. I didn't notice it was there, because of the darkness in the room. The man looked at me, and then walked up to me and back handed me firmly with no hesitation whatsoever.
I was really angry now. Blood was running out of my mouth and dripping into my dusty lap. My head hanged like a rag doll, and then I rose it to look at the man and I told him, "Fuck you!!" The man who was originally in the room started laughing. It was an odd laugh, that sounded deep and dark. It had a sinister twist to it. He stopped laughing but smiled at me and said, "you guys... You're always so easy to break. You know I sanity is doing the same thing over and I've again and expecting the same result... Would you call me and my partner here insane for smacking you repeatedly until you scream? Or would you call it something else hmm? It screws up the whole thought of insanity doesn't it? I mean, our only intintions was to make you mad so you'd scream, but until that moment you didn't. BUT, we didn't expect you not to scream and sit there each time. No, no we expected you to scream, and what happened? You did.." He had an evil grin on his face. Then he said to me, "see my whole thought of insanity, through Einsteins perspective is someone putting their keys in the egnition of there car, for example, and expecting it to turn on each time they crank it. THAT is insanity to me. But if you say, smack someone repeatedly and they don't scream, but you still expect them to, then that my friend.... Is insanity." he chuckled and then said to me, "what do you think am I right?" He was pacing the room the entire time he spoke. I looked at him and said, "I say, fuck you and Einstein!!!!! Whoever he is.." He stopped and leaned forward towards me and said, "you know thy said you were more polite than this. Try to look a little better for me and DON'T be polite." he laughed again.
"You make no sense whatsoever. Who are you anyway?" I asked the man. "Who me? I'm nobody that you need to know of. That's all." He laughed again. "Well I wish I could stay and talk but I really don't want to so.. Yeaaa, hahaHahaha!! He he ho ho ho, he he haaaaaa hahaha!" this guy was clearly insane. There's no way he wasn't, NO WAY. He starred at me. "Gotta run" he said, and exited the room through the door. The other guy who came in earlier walked towards me and carried me out of the room. Before my eyes was a huge facility like place. It looked strange but I was starting to get an idea of where I was, but I still didn't fully know WHERE I was. The man carried me across the platform, which was made of metal and had slits in it. Looked as if it was made that way. He dragged me to a cell and threw me in it. He shut the door and locked it. I had the hunch I was in jail, or somplace like that. Probably prison really. The man stood in front of my cell and looked at me. He held the keys up and then tilted his head back, still staring at me. He put the keys in his mouth and swallowed them... Key ring and all. He chuckled at me and then stopped. He looked at me with a straight face except for his eyes. He widened his eyes till they looked like giant glass eye balls. He looked at me like he was scarred, and then for some reason shouted, BOO!! I flinched because it spooked me and he laughed so hard I thought he was crying. He called me a brat and then walked away laughing again....
