Amy GuisseTired. The only word that could describe the way she felt. Constant exhaustion, no matter how late she slept, no matter how often. She wasn't that old, maybe twenty if that. She was fit and strong. Alive. That was more then most could say now a day. Slumping down onto the broken down box that was now her bed, Amy sprawled in the alley, the mundane day finally sinking in.

Nothing particularly interesting had happened. It usually never did. Winter was coming though. One could feel it in the air. It was drier, colder. Everything had a distinct chill to it, even the behavior of the locals but then again, when didn't their behavior hold such coldness? Laying in the very clothes that she had worn during the days, the dirt coated jeans and thin button down provided barely enough warmth to keep her comfortable. Luckily, that wasn't what had been preoccupying Amy. In fact, to that extent, the cold didn't even bother her anymore. It was the sensation she had in her chest. One of pressure, of pain. A self inflicted knot that grew more powerful with each passing thought. Staring up at the sky, she looked to a single star. Nothing was particularly special about the star. It was simply a dim dot amongst an ocean of similar sparkles. She couldn't help but wonder why she was here. Why in this very spot, in this particular situation. In the end, Amy went back to thinking about what she thought about almost every night. Something that had been bothering her for some time. No friends. None.

She thought about what it would be like to be popular, to be loved. A sensation she had never known and assumed that she would never know. She questioned her own sanity, her ideals. She pondered whether or not there really was such a thing as love or just people so desperate for admiration from their peers that they played the part, day after day with a single partner who they would eventually grow to hate. Amy had known the power of imagination, the ability of masses to believe such widely spread lies that the lies themselves became truth. The idea of money came to mind. Something so simple, so basic... so imaginary. This thing that had supposed value but in reality was of no more worth then that material and labor that went into making it. The idea that a few more zeros written out on a bill could up it's cost one hundred or so times. The only word she could think of that described it was insanity.

Still laying silent, she crossed her arms over her chest in an effort to warm herself in the night air. Falling back into the depths of her own mind, the walls of the real world began to dissolve once more, this time when she closed her eyes. The insides of her lids were like projection screens, colors playing over them amongst the endless fog. Soon, the colors began taking shape and the pain in her chest swelled once more. She saw herself, standing alone. Always alone. On the endless plain, there was a wall. The alley wall. Her hair was stained with blood, thick and matted. The crimson liquid drenched her face, her hair. The once auburn locks were now black, her face but a shadow. Repeatedly, the figure that she recognized as herself began beating her face against the alley wall, smashing into it again and again. Even through the bombardment, the figure stood straight and upon the insides of her lids, Amy could just watch. She couldn't stop it, but each impact she could feel. Amy knew the pain well and along with the building pressure in her chest, her face began to tingle. What she was feeling was a product of her own imagination. Self inflicted pain of the highest caliber.

Snapping her eyes wide open once more, she gaze at the stars, both hands simultaneously reaching for her face. Pressing her finger tips into the flesh of her cheeks, Amy clawed at own face. She needed to escape the constant tingle, she needed to get rid of the pain that had now spread to her face. Amy wanted to dig in and rip out the offending nerve, the obvious defect that was now plaguing her. As more time passed between the vision and her realization, the sensation began to fade. Her fingernails, which were bitten down to the point where any form of pressure caused her discomfort, had done nothing. She was still so very tired. Even now, after that, exhaustion wracked her body and there she laid, lowering her hands once more. In an attempt to shrug it off, Amy took in a deep breath, exhaling just as slowly.

"Back to trying to get some sleep" she muttered to herself. In reality, Amy knew the pain of trying to sleep. She knew how her mind wandered. She had to deal with the same thing almost every night. Closing her eyes once more, the image that was depicted in the spiraling colors of her eye lids was more brutal then the last. A figure, Amy; with a hatchet, her hand laid across a stump. With another flash, a different still came up, this one of the hand disconnected from the body. Every detail of the effect clouded her mind. The tendons, the muscles. The torn and ruptured blood vessels. What had started out as just pressure in her chest had turned into a sickening sensation. Her stomach churned as she watched herself dismember her own body repeatedly. The hand coming off again and again, blood pooling on and around the stump. Tears began welling up in her eyes as she laid shaking on the cardboard box that was her bed. The freedom of tears teased her. How much relief she would feel from flat out sobbing but she sat at the verge. She just couldn't do it. Control wasn't so easy to relinquish.

Her wrist began to tingle. Unlike with her face, this was much deeper. The line of would be disconnect buzzing. The unnerving restlessness once again taking hold. With her thumb, Amy began applying pressure to the underside of her forearm, turning the imaginary into something a bit more realistic. Snapping her eyes open once more, Amy lurched forward, her right hand releasing her wrist as she grabbed at her stomach. Even with open eyes, before her, all she could see was a vision of herself ripping out her own intestine, spilling her own guts on the cardboard bed on which she slept. Finally, the anger was overwhelming and as the tears welled even more, Amy began to sob. Leaning forward farther, she cupped her face in her hands. The mixture of the tears and dirt from her palms stained her face as she cried, silently emptying her heart. Falling backwards into a laying position once more, the quick, emotional purge had finally tired Amy to the point of exhaustion. Closing her eyes yet again, she sobbed into the inner bend of her left elbow, the tears slowly fading, the sobs eventually silencing and her mind finally drifting off to sleep.

MissyOhhh... poor Amy :(

That was very well written, Amy. Very vivid and descriptive and you made me ache for her.

KayteearGreat... It's so... dark! :D
I'm wondering what kind of things did Amy do or go through in the past for having such a torment inside her mind...

NequaelLoved it. Its not very often you get a peek into the inner psyche of the characters in this city, you get to see whats on the outside and what that particular character is trying to portray themselves as, but very rarely you get to hear whats really going on inside their head. Thankyou!10/17/09 12:06

Well, she recently became a Lycan which was purely accidental ICly and essentially with that and the loss of her demon which was coincidentally her best friend as well, she kind of hates herself.
