**This takes place after chapter one of The Roundhead and before chapter two**
“You don’t get it do you? I can tell Sil, it’s written all over your face,” she says, Sil looks back down at the phone and then back to her and smiles.
“Not really, it’s scary, but it’s not really, my thing, I guess is the best way to put it,” Sil says as she hands the phone to her.
“Then you’re man,” she says with a giggle. “I fucking loved it, I mean, I really fucking loved it, it’s got me so fucking horny after I read it, that I slipped into Mary’s bed, and we made out!” She says excitedly.
“You, and Mary?”
“I know, I know, it’s been like, going to happen for ages, but I didn’t think either of us would ever work up the courage, and then bam! I read the story and was so fucking turned on, that I thought, shit, this is it, this is the time we finally get it on.”
“That’s awesome, maybe now I can finally stop hearing about how all you want to do is hook up with her,” Sil says with a laugh.
“Shut up! It’s so fucking awesome, so yeah, I can’t believe you don’t like the story!”
“It’s not that I don’t like it, it’s just not my cup of tea.”
“Dullsville right here, but I get it, you’ve got to like the genre, and you’ve got to have a good imagination,” she says with a laugh.
“What are you saying?” She says as she throws a pillow at her.
“Nothing sister, you’re just not a book person, but I’ll definitely shout you tickets to the movie when it’s made.”
“They’re making a movie?”
“There’s no way they couldn’t!”
“I guess, if it’s as good as you think,” she looks at her watch and back at her. “Anyway, I’ve gotta go, Doctor Tate’s class starts in ten minutes, and I don’t wanna be late,” she says blushing.
“You’re still banging him?”
“Shut up Steph, its more than that, we’re in love.”
“If the school board found out it wouldn’t be classed as love,” she says as she imitates riding a horse and begins smacking her own butt cheek.
“I’m nineteen and he’s thirty-one, in the eyes of the law we’re both legal, so it shouldn’t matter. Anyway, he doesn’t pay special attention to my grade, he’s fair, and makes sure my marks show that.”
“Whatever makes you happy sister,” she says as they hug. “Just know, when it comes out, and it will, I’m always here for you,” she says, Sil gives her a final smile before quickly exits the room, and Steph turns back to her phone and presses the share button on the story.
“Fucking shazoom!” she says out loud as she throws her shirt off, steps out of her shorts and walks into the shower, it’s then that she gets a tingling feeling running all over her body, she turns her head, looking straight into a set of cold, black eyes and screams, jumping behind the shower curtain.
“Whoever you are, you need to get the fuck out of my room now! My roommate and her boyfriend are going to be back any minute, and he plays for the schools rugby team, so I wouldn’t wanna be here when they arrive!” she yells, she can see the girl slowly, bizarrely move forward and reach out, grabbing the shower curtain, and ripping it away. They stare into each other’s eyes for what seems like hours, and then, the girl’s head tilts to the side slightly, and she beings to speak.
“Tides of blood wash into shore, as its feeds its thirst but still wants more, we cast our vote, we share its name, we deny our fault, we deny our blame, but our sins flow deep, within our soul, for that is what it seeks, that is what it stole, so if you dare, so if you might, call its name, but prepare for a fright, for it’s already here, waiting for you, so say it, so call it, call The Roundhead, The Roundhead, The Roundhead, I do.” Then, she disappears like a light being turned off, and that’s when Steph hears the sound, like fingernails running along a chalkboard.
