Chapter 59 – Murder

26 11 2008


i suppose you heard about mictlantecuhtli’s latest attack yesterday? i was the one who found the body.

it had been a good day up until that point. i’d stopped by at the odd jobs agency on my way back from a game of football i’d been playing with iaru and his mates, and i saw this request for a single delivery, that said it was urgent, to be made to a house in forest floor, under tree top town. that’s not far from where i live, so i thought, why the hell not? 20€ just for delivering a parcel!

so i took the bus home as usual, but instead of stopping there, i headed on to forest floor. i’d forgotten just how dark it gets there in the evenings. it took me a little while to find the house in the dark, but i found it, and delivered the parcel successfully. i turned to hurry back so as to catch the last bus to south dock, but i took a wrong turn down one of the streets and wound on the edge of the woods. i was going to just turn back, but then i spotted this figure slumped against a tree. i thought it might be someone hurt, so i just went to have a look. i saw it was a man, and that he wasn’t moving, so i called out, “are you ok?” he didn’t react at all, and then i got closer and realised the guy had a little black “m” on his forehead.

that was the most surreal moment ever. for a moment, i thought it couldn’t be real, you know? like i was imagining it or something. and then i panicked. i straightened up, looked around, and ran. i didn’t stop running until i was out from under tree top town and back in the open. then i called the police, and told them what i’d seen.

it was hard to get the words out. i think i was in shock. then of course they wanted a full explanation of everything, what was i doing there, did i see anything suspicious, etc. so it was a while before i could go home, and i was exhausted by that point. i had to hand my proof-of-delivery slip thingy in today, cause the agency was closed by the time i was done talking to the police.

why does everything crazy seem to happen around me? i mean, am i being punished for something? do i have bad karma?

everyone at school has wanted to discuss what happened. normally i’d be the first to tell everyone about such an exciting tale, but i’m so tired today, and i’m really not in the mood for people being morbid. as far as i can tell, i’m lucky to be alive myself. if the killer had still been around, they could have been really close by. the whole experience was scary as hell.

need sleepp now…. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Thank you very much Ryan, I’m glad you enjoyed it. 🙂 The story is far from over yet, so I’m afraid I’m not looking for an editor right now, but thank you for your offer. Any feedback is always appreciated.

Oh no! How horrible for you! I’m really glad you got out of there all right, though. It might be best not to take up any more deliveries in the dark. What do you make of the “m” on the victim? Did the police tell you anything? Really, do take care of yourself. You seem to find yourself in the most extraordinary situations.

bizzariarox: yes, it was quite nasty. thank you. yeah, i think i’ll take your advice regarding deliveries in the dark! well, i’m guessing the m is for mictlantecuhtli (ugh, why’d that have to be so hard to spell?), so it must be some kind of cult thing. the police were mostly just trying to calm me down! they didn’t tell me anything i couldn’t have worked out for myself. i’ll try to look after myself. i seem to be a magnet for weirdness!

how the heck do you pronounce that name?? i know what you mean about things happening to you, i keep having bad luck this year from one thing to another, though nothing quite like discovering a murder. 😕

bizzariarox: mick-tlanty… i’ve no idea. it’s all i can do to spell it. yeah, mad, isn’t it? i hope you have some better luck soon!

funkyloon: Oh my god, Bradlers, why didn’t you tell me about this?? Your life seems to be one horrifying event after another! Are you ok?

bizzariarox: i dunno, we hadn’t spoken in a while, had we? lol, don’t exaggerate, it isn’t that bad!
