Flight into Passage, the True Journey Begins

He awakes suddenly. His heart pounding in his ears, sweat glistening his head, his hair, his chest, arms, and legs. Its not dark, but a pale Gray all around him. He hears them coming from the distance. The low rumble of their trotting feet, the echo of their torments getting closer.

"Shit! Didn't I fight them off already?! Didn't I win this battle time and time again?!"

He starts to run forward, faster and faster his feet hit.....air. There is nothing below him but a void, deep and dark, endless...forever endless. He lifts his head and looks forward, always looking forward. They are gaining.

Suddenly a wall forms in front of him. Its blocking his way. He cannot move forward any further. Nor does he want to, he's tired. His lungs gasp for air not found, his head swims with dizziness. Resting his hands on his knees, hunched over wheezing, he awaits their arrival.

The demons approach him with vicious smiles on their faces. Their lips lick with a hunger that is never filled, never ever sated.

"We will chase you to no end! You must understand this, we will never truly leave you!"

He glances upward at them, eyes a blaze with fire and fury. Hands leaving his knees, they turn to fists. He sets his back to the wall and braces his feet. The furry engulfs him. He is no longer afraid of them, lost that a long time ago. He no longer believes what they say is true.

That he is beneath them,

That he will never accomplish anything but below average,

That he is a loser, no good, and stupid.

That his self worth is nothing!

He knows this not to be true, but he is tired. So tired of fighting them off. How long can he keep it up for. How long can he stay strong within his self before he just lays down and says

"Fuck it! you win."

They approach him in a crowd, eyes hungry with hate, tongues lashing out with torments dripping from them.

He is afraid that his "light" will fade, that its not strong enough yet to stay lit for him in his time of need.

Then it hits him, as they are about to strike with everything they have. He finally understands, he finally gets it! At first he just would run till exhaustion. And then he fought, and fought he did! But even that only gave him a temporary peace. He will not boast enlightenment, he is way too young to understand its depth or its true form and power. But he does understand. Like a fingernails breathe, he understands. He lowers his guard, they begin to mock.

"Giving up so easily?" they taunt and laugh.

He smirks and says,

"Oh no, but I figured out how to beat you. How to finally put you to an end within me. You will be forever gone now."

They laugh at him, they howl upwards, arching their backs in a very inhuman way. They love it! They think him to be full of shit!

Well he is.......to an extent. He makes a fist yet again, and they brace themselves for his onslaught. He strikes hard and fast, over and over, again he strikes. He wounds, he beats, his fists a torrent of destruction upon the pain, anguish, and hurt. Teeth crack, bones break, a frenzy ensuing! And then, as quickly as it began, it ends. All is quiet except for his hard and heavy panting.

They stand horror stricken and amazed. They now howl in hate and anger, anger at the knowledge that he found.

"How did he do it?! How did he know?!!!"

He picks himself back up, blood streaming from his mouth and head. Eyes swelled and teeth cracked and broken.......from striking himself. Thats right, he beat the living day lights out of himself. Never once attacking them.

He stands as straight as his battered body will allow. Stetching out he cracks his aching back. He spits out a bloody tooth on the ground at their feet. They look at the tooth, and then up at him to be met with his blood filled smile. Yes he grins at them, ignoring the pain he just inflicted on himself. The wall moves to the side, he walks around it.

"No!!! We cannot follow you!! You need us you shit, you need us!!!"

He turns towards them for a minute and laughs, laughs truly, deeply, and whole heartedly.

"I know that you cant follow me, and you are wrong. I never needed you. And now I know that. Goodbye."

And with a flip of his middle finger, a pure blue and white swirling light fills the space about him. It wipes them away like a twister flinging objects carelessly to and fro. It carries him away and he never once thinks of them again, or lets them consume who he is.

He has beaten his personal demons. But to do so........he had to defeat himself.
