NiGHTMARE chapter 16After her incident in the bathroom, Nancy had gone to the nurse's office to get her head cleaned up and bandaged it with a band-aid, saying that she had merely tripped and hit her head on the corner of a table. Because of her reaction in class, Mr. Gryffon allowed her the chance to complete the assignment via research instead of actual dissection. So Nancy took a couple books home from the school library and spent the next several hours after returning home writing up an extremely detailed report as long as her arm. Not that she needed to get overly detailed or anything, she just wanted to spend as much time as possible on it. She would have just looked it all up on the internet, but unfortunately for her their computer was busted. Once she had completed her paper, she spent the rest of her time busying herself with all kinds of menial tasks. Washing dishes, straightening and re-straightening her room, laundry (even though all her clothes were already clean), even counting all the marb
NiGHTMARE chapter 15Biology, the final class of the day, and Nancy was grateful for that. She had long finished off her last bottle of Nos, and was beginning to feel the effects of her exhaustion weighing on her. After she had helped her dad into his bed to sleep it off last night, she herself stayed up the whole rest of the night in her room for the second night in a row now. It made her feel more worn than a tire on a racecar, but she wouldn't sleep another night for the rest of her life as long as it meant she could stay out of Freddy's reach.
Now she sat at her lab table, hunched over with her fingers massaging her temples, waiting for class to begin, even more eager for it to end so she could return home where a supply of caffeine awaited her. After bell signaling to beginning of the period sounded, the loudness of which aggravated Nancy's poor aching head, Nancy turned her head up to gaze up at the clock so she could begin counting down the minutes. However, when she did, she could have sworn that t
NiGHTMARE chapter 14Three homework assignments and twenty rounds of Solitaire later from arriving home from school, and still no sign of her dad. Nancy had been killing time on the living room couch in front of the TV, drinking cup after cup of coffee and playing endless rounds of Solitaire over the coffee table.
It was past midnight, hours after Donald's usual arrival time, when the front door unlocked and Donald himself burst through. He took a couple steps forward before stumbling forward and leaning against the railing of the stairs, groaning under his breath. He was drunk.
After Donald, in came a mid-thirties man in a police uniform. Roman Campbell, Donald's partner on the force.
"Hey Nancy," he said to Nancy, giving her a small awkward wave, "How you doing?"
"Fine," she answered, her gaze still on her father hunched and rubbing his head with the knuckles of his fist. The current situation made an otherwise friendly meeting tense and uncomfortable.
After a moment, Donald finally took notice of the al
mechanici want to kiss every aching wound you have,
bandage your heart every time it bleeds,
and patch up your mind over and over
because not a single tear deserves to fall
from your brandy-drenched eyes
but this dripping heart of mine can only feel
and the healing honey words it flames get caught
in the back of my throat and on the roof of my mouth
so i only have these passionate guttural cries
to tell you that i care all too much
and in order to fix you up again,
i would need to tear myself to tatters
and trade all of my working parts
for your leftover, fading pieces
but i just haven’t figured out how.
