“What?” Roy asked, a bit confused.
“Come on, we have lust, sacrifice, and despair left. We better hurry if I will lose this memory sickness. Removing one fault makes me feel a whole of a lot better. Let’s beat them all, so I can never be afflicted again!” I said, excited.
He sighed. The look on his face was of annoyance, for some reason. “It’s not as easy as last time. Every time you face another fault, the difficulty is increased. It’s not as easy as whipping out a guy’s wallet,” I stepped back, recollecting what I had said. “Are you sure you want to continue?” he asked.
I thought about it for about 15 seconds and considered the offer, something I regretted soon. He placed the memory dish on my head, as I dozed off. I woke up in the white world of memories. It was like everything around me was made of paper. Before I could react, the same black beam of memories impaled me through the chest.
“Whatever, let’s get going with lust…” Roy murmured. The beam shrinked into a ball and the scene changed into when I first met her. She was winking me goodbye, next to her friends. I saw myself with a dopey look on my face. I felt confident trying to overcome the challenge, but I had no idea how. “Brace yourself because you will most likely not go through your sanity intact,”
I gulped and wondered why Roy was acting that way. I didn’t have time to think any longer. The scene literally melted around me. Every color, shape, and figure started melting like wax. Everything compiled into one big puddle of twisted colors. Suddenly, the puddle rose up and formed into a shape of a human. The puddle morphed overtime into the shape of a girl. The shape was Laura. All of the colors starting mixing together until I saw the exact form of a girl I once loved.
It was no mistake. It wasn’t Alice at all. Even though they shared similar features, you couldn’t beat the real deal. It was her, clear as day. She smiled and beckoned me to come towards her. I approached her and she flung her arms out. I hugged her, not having the slightest suspicion at all, for some reason. I felt content as I embraced her, like nothing bad would ever happen.
The feeling grew. I wanted to love her more than I ever had before. I kissed her, and she kissed me back. I felt weaker, but I didn’t care. She was I needed in the world, her alone, nobody else. I didn’t care about the ongoing war. I didn’t care about any of my friends. I only cared about her. We stood there, kissing. Suddenly, I couldn’t smell her anymore, and I couldn’t taste her lips anymore. Come to think of it, I could barely even open my eyes!
I tried using my willpower to force my eyes to see what was happening, but my eyelids would budge. My mind was fighting itself. One side wanted to be with Laura, but the other wanted full control. Luckily, my sane side was winning, and I managed to regain feeling throughout my body. I felt covered in a think, slimy material, like mud. Suddenly, I realized that the Laura I was just making out with had reverted back to the liquid form.
She was trying to suffocate me! I tried fighting back, but the other side of my psyche was fighting harder than ever, making me feel like I wanted to forget. The liquid started hardening around me, making it harder to fight back. With all of my willpower, I managed to break my right arm free from her grasp. I started prying all of the sludge off of my face, giving me air, but it didn’t last for long. I was only able to get a few gasps in before she attacked me again.
The sludge covered my right arm and glued it back into position. The goo started crushing my body, and yet I felt the warmth of Laura’s body. The smell of her hair, the sound of her voice, and the feeling of being around her rushed through my body. I couldn’t fight back. I knew I was going to die for real this time. In this reality, I couldn’t use my abilities, which meant no intangibility or sense control.
Even though it was an alternate reality, I had a feeling that if I died here, my mind would die along with it. My bones were being crushed, my blood was boiling, and my sanity was basically nonexistent. At that point, I knew I would die from the kiss of death. Everything became darker than black, and I knew my afterlife was over, due to my ego flaring up and prematurely taking this test.
“Roy! What are you doing?” I heard a voice yell from above. It was a faint voice, but it was Chase’s. “Dude, you’re gonna kill him!”
“He’s trying to defeat- Roy growled, but I heard him grunt like he was hit. Suddenly, I was freed. I looked up, and everything was bright. I felt like how a newborn baby would. I tried moving, but my muscles were stiff and aching. I was extremely exhausted, and my chest felt like it was trying to cave in on itself. I saw Roy’s surprised look as he called over a medical team. I then blacked out.
