She Took Him Down

Updated on March 27, 2014

She always wondered why there were no mirrors in the room.

Why the drapes were always closed and why she felt so much gloom.

The door was always locked and bolted shut.

She was not allowed to come out and it made her sick to her gut.

Tears would always fill her eyes.

But there was no one present to hear her cries.

Food was always slid through the opening of the door.

She didn't even experience human interaction anymore.

She was drowning in despair.

She thought to herself that it wasn't fair.

Until one day, she heard a key turn and the door unlock.

She ran in the corner to hide because it was a big shock.

She heard a man’s voice say, “Come little one. It’s your time.”

But she didn’t move, she remained silent as scary thoughts raced through her mind.

Her teeth were shattering because she was so scared.

The man stood in the door and only stared.

He shook a piece of candy in his hand.

It caught her attention so she began to stand.

She walked towards the door and he grabbed her by the neck.

And threw her down the stairs, that was something that she didn't expect.

She looked up and saw other girls in cages.

Pleading for her to help them as they went through panic phases.

The smell of blood filled the room as the aftermath covered the ground.

She regained her composure and started looking around.

He said, “Do as I say if you don‘t want to die!

Open this cage, grab the girl and don’t ask why!”

She put her index finger on her lips and motioned her to be quiet.

He yelled, “I know what your thinking and don’t even try it!”

She held her head down and held the girls hand.

She completed everything to his command.

She came up with a plan in her head. She knew that it would surely leave him dead.

All he had to do was turn his head away for a minute.

It would give her time to execute it.

She only had one chance.

He turned his back and all it took was one glance.

She grabbed a knife on the table and went for his back.

She was unsuccessful , the knife fell to the floor and he gave her a whack.

She dropped to the floor and pretended like she was hurt.

She retrieved the knife again and on his legs she began to work.

His knees buckled as he fell in pain.

With a final blow, she stuck the knife into his brain.

She freed the girls and they all fled the scene.

She was so traumatized that she couldn't say a thing.

The man was her father and he was very sick.

He used her as bait so he could catch the girls really quick.

Afterwards, he would lock her up and she never knew what he did after that.

And when he would let her out it was constant combat.

He would beat her until she couldn't move anymore.

Then he would throw her back into the room and lock the door.

She said to herself, “That chapter of my life is over.” Then she gave a smirk.

With a knife in her hand she said, “Now all men have to pay because of my father’s handy work."
