I Hear Satan
GrueHead Challenge Yourself "Voices Inside"
Master used to look at me with a love so deep it melted my heart. Lately though I get a much different look. It isn’t hate emitting from him but I can smell his fear. Why does master fear me? I swear I’ve done nothing wrong. All I did was blackout after a searing pain in my bowels. Did I do something to master in my sleep. Oh, please I hope I didn’t hurt master! He’s my only friend but now he won’t talk to me, won’t tell me what I’ve done. I try to be good for him.
Master has been sitting with a blank expression on his face for days now. He occasionally mumbles to himself but he’s not talking to me. I rub up against him to no affect. He cringes against my touch so badly I can almost feel his skin crawl. I go back to my corner leaving him be. Maybe master just needs some time. I don’t sense any illness in him but something is definitely wrong. I just want him to love me but he doesn’t seem to any more. He’s never made me feel unwanted before now. He used to come through the door beaming he was so happy to see me but now he slinks in when he happens to go out at all looking just utterly dejected. It’s as if someone has sucked all the joy out of him. I don’t know what to do any more.
The pain comes back again ripping my manhood away and then I’m back in the void. How long was I out? Master is pacing now. What happened? This looks very bad. Master looks mad and I no longer smell fear on him when he looks at me. He spots me staring at him stopping his pacing as if he slammed into a brick wall.
“You’re right. I’m sorry I resisted. You were only trying to show me the truth. I’m sorry I didn’t listen. When you began to speak I thought I was losing my mind but I know now. You were only telling me what I needed to hear. I will be back soon with a treat for you. Would you like a treat?” He sounds absolutely mad but I’m so happy master is talking to me again.
It feels like days but my perception of time has never been very good. Finally I hear the door knob turn. I’m so excited master is finally home. I hope he has a good treat for me. I can hardly contain my excitement as the door creeps open and I see master step inside. Master is all hunched over as though he needs to sneak into his own home. I can smell something different, something new. I don’t know what it is but it smells delicious. Oh, what treat did master bring me? I can’t wait for him to turn around and give it to me!
“I did what you wanted. Are you ready for a treat?” Master still has his back to me like he’s nervous to show me what he has brought me.
Master finally turns around a hand hiding inside his coat. What is he covered in? It smells delicious but I don’t know what it is. I don’t dare jump up on Master to check as he has been so odd lately. Master is literally dripping in something red that smells absolutely wonderful making me excited. I wag my tail trying to let him know how happy I am.
“I did what you told me boy. I brought you the treat you asked for too. I did good didn’t I?” Master pulls his hand from inside his coat presenting something meaty for me.
I can’t resist any longer even if master might get angry. I jump up on him wagging my tail as hard as I can licking the delicious red stuff off his face. Master doesn’t seem mad at all and is even smiling at me as I lick away. I don’t know what the thing in his hand is but if it tastes as good as the stuff on his face I am one lucky boy indeed! Master lets me lick his face as much as I want before standing up straight patting my head just like he always had until recently.
“I’m sorry it took me so long to do your bidding. I didn’t think I could kill but you just kept telling me over and over. I’m so glad I listened to you boy. Why aren’t you talking to me now? Are you not pleased? Did I not do good? Please tell me! I did my best! Why won’t you speak to me?” Master looks upset with me but I don’t understand what he’s saying. I don’t recognize the words.
“You have done well, the heart was delicious but you’re not done. I need you to kill again for me. You do want to please me, don’t you?” The voice is coming out of my mouth but I don’t understand the words.
“Good. I want you to bring me the heart of a woman this time. I don’t care what you do to get it just bring me the fucking heart! Understand?”
“Clean up then go!”
I don’t understand why master is calling me master. What is going on? Then the blackness envelopes me. I wake and the pain and voice are gone but so is master. I hope he brings another treat as tasty as the last. I try to be such a good boy. I don’t know what the voice inside my head was saying but if master brings another tasty treat I’ll be one happy puppy!
