Ossi end Mellow

Sweet dreams aren't made of bliss

Ossi said to me as he watched me squirm on the white sheets of the lego-block-like bed. The sheets were thin and so old they were now clad in unknown yellow stains.Bookmark here

Mellow! He exclaimed. You need to start thinking about the outside world! And I don’t mean out there. He pointed to the obscure window carved into the wall a few feet from the side of the bed. I ceased my squirming as I smiled and looked to his jawline, what window? I said with a sneer.Bookmark here

Ossi pointed aggressively again to the window, that one idiot. He looked down at me and sighed loudly, so loudly the sound could almost actually be heard. He sat on the edge of the bed tiredly and groaned, as I was saying before.Bookmark here

Within the depths of darkness or the egg of life.Bookmark here

Hey Ossi, would you mind shutting up? I said indifferently. I stared at the back of his head as silence filled the vacuum of the room.Bookmark here

I began to recite…Bookmark here

Before I knew it, my eyes were closed and I was dreaming. In this dream, the world's color is mushed into many different things. Ossi!! I screamed out into the distance as a blob of the world began to take shape. Hey Ossi, I’m sorry about earlier…I squinted to see the now fully formed figure. The colors all merging and mixing into a beautiful display...and then darkness. The blob turned into a pit-Esque blackness, and all around me, the world began to crumble. From a colorful and bubbly world to a dark and barren void.Bookmark here

I whispered to myself...as my knees drew to my chest and my arms wrapped around them.Bookmark here

Within the depths of darkness or the egg of life.Bookmark here

I could hear Ossi whispering the same line again, as I finally awoke from the horrid dream.Bookmark here

I opened my eyes slowly as I looked from here to there seeing the...Bookmark here

Then the back of Ossi’s head. An odd concavity appeared in it. It was dented like the shape an empty cup of jello takes after you’ve pressed the pouch inwards. Hmm, I reached for the back of his head slowly as he continued to recite the same line over and over “Within the depths of darkness or the egg of life….Within the depths of darkness or the egg of life….Within the depths of darkness or the egg of life.” Until I touched the back of his head. In that dent, I felt a warmth...a scarlet liquid began to ooze onto my fingers as I pulled them away.Bookmark here

I smiled softly as I looked at the back of Ossi’s head. Hey Ossi...why’s there a hole in the back of your head?Bookmark here

Hey Ossi...why’s there a hole in the back of your head?Bookmark here

Hey dad...why’s there a hole in the back of your head?Bookmark here

Hey Ossi...why’s there a hole in the back of your head?Bookmark here

Ossi slowly turned his head and the slow gush of blood and bones creaking echoed throughout the room. My smile etching creases into my cheeks like a blade, while my eyes go numb. The corners of my mouth begin to foam, over and over and over and over and over.Bookmark here

My throat traps any sound from escaping.Bookmark here

Within the depths of darkness or the egg of life….Within the depths of darkness or the egg of life….Within the depths of darkness or the egg of life.Bookmark here

His head was now fully facing me while his body facing the opposite direction.Bookmark here

Within pain or love?Bookmark here

Do you want to see the sweet dreams this world makes you dream?Bookmark here

Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.Bookmark here

He began to laugh as the foaming at the corners of my lips intensified and the whole world began to shake...then my body finally went numb.Bookmark here

The nurse walks into the almost vacant white room, all that resides within it are a...Bookmark here

She looks to the foot of the bed and finds him rocking and muttering words while the corners of his lips foam. “Ah...the usual coo-coo” She slowly inched closer to the small boy, a bit hesitant now as she saw his crazed state. “Make sure to take your pills.” She leaves his hefty dose of pills on the top of his sheetless bed. The boy stops rocking now and looks up to the nurse while he slowly reaches one of his hands out to her, his fingernails all gone from being ripped out. The area around the nail revealing tooth marks. A scarlet liquid oozing from the vacant nail bed; blood. She sees an infinite void in his clouded eyes and the slice-like creases that form a ghastly smile. Then…Bookmark here

...The nurse at her breaking point quickly jogs to the door, and just as she steps outside of the room she hears the boy whispering frantically to himself...Bookmark here
