Sakura Hiroshimi was a 15 year old beautiful girl; at school, her best grades were at Physical Education and Arts. All the girls respected her and all the boys would give most anything to be her “the one”; but she never socialized, she always would stay outside school as much as she could, and when she was stuck inside school, during break she’d keep staring at the window; sometimes she’d talk to her gay best friend (Yeah, he is gay! So what?), Eric. They met when he was being bullied by being gay and she just couldn’t stand seeing someone being beat up like that for choosing something out of average, so she stepped in and beat up the four bullies, 2 of them needed to go to the hospital. Eric had been the only friend of hers since then, and he cared for her, always trying to repay the favor.
One day she suddenly disappeared for 2 weeks, and when she was found, she was completely exhausted; she had collapsed in the Cherry woods nearby her house. When questioned what had happened, she didn’t say a thing, instead, she walked away and her life continued the same.
Even though everyone respected her, even though her family loved her, she had a dark side. She always had it, when she was 8, she attacked her first bully, with 10, she almost killed him. She used bullies as dummies for her anger. Her parents loved her, but didn’t know anything about her, always busy or arguing, they never entered her room; that drove her insane. She started hearing voices, and she wanted to destroy everything she saw, in one of these events that voices would enter her mind, she fell from the stairs and almost broke her arm. She thought that entering to martial arts should be enough to discharge her anger, so she asked her parents to do it, she got really good in it, but it had too many rules, ways, she wanted something more care-free… The voices in her head somehow had given her psych abilities, and she practiced dark magic in the woods.
One day, she accidentally opened a portal to a dark place, dead trees were surrounding it, the moon assembled a smile, and a huge mansion stood amidst the dead woods. She walked in, the place felt somehow comforting to her. It made her feel at home, she carelessly walked into the woods; when she started to hear what seemed to be footsteps that weren’t hers, she stopped, the footsteps continued, she looked around and saw a trail, in it she saw a tall and thin man, he was wearing a black suit and he had pale skin, but she was unable to see anything better since they were far away, but she managed to see another person with him, a regular sized man, wearing a white hoodie stained with something red, black pants and sneakers, his hair was pitch black and shoulder-length, she caught a glimpse of what could be some kind of cut in his pale face.
Curiosity had taken over her and she tried to take a closer look, she was able to hide behind a tree and after looking closer upon two figures, she saw that the tall man did not have a face, and the man with the white hoodie had a smile cut into his face.
-Eek! –She almost screamed, but stopped herself before actually yelling. However…
-Shh!! Did you hear that? –The smiling man said.
-I thought I heard something… I guess it was my imagination…
Too scared to think wisely, after they calmed down a bit she tried to go away, but stepped on a branch after about 15 steps.
-I knew it!!!! –The smiling man went running into the woods chasing after Sakura.
Upon realizing he was going after her, she started running. But he soon managed to reach her, he pulled her by her arm and tried to stab her with a kitchen’s knife. But she swiftly dodged and pushed him away, he tried to go after her again but she acted quicker; she sprained his wrist and pulled him by his neck, pushing him towards a tree, than pulled him, throwing him to the ground, he let his knife fall, and she got on him and punched him in the face 3 times; but then she felt strange tentacles tangling to her waist and pulling her up.
-Hey hey hey, don’t fight kids. You’re gonna get hurt.
-I’M ALREADY HURT YOU IDIOT!!!!!
-Wow, so little time and she really beat you up didn’t she?
-Hey!!!! Don’t talk about me like I’m an object!!! And let me GO!!!
The smiling man grabbed his knife and when he was about to kill her she could only think of one way out: dark magic. She learned to use a hypnotic spell made to be used on the opposed gender, this was a good time to try out. When his face was close enough she pulled her head towards him and kissed him (That was the way to cast the spell XD ). He got red as a tomato and got immobilized by his racing heart.
-What the heck?! –The tall and thin man was really confused.
-Wh-what… What was… Wh-what was... –The smiling man could only say that.
-Jeff? Jeff, are you here?!
-Slenderman… I… I can’t move my body… Help…
-Urgh… -Slenderman looked to Sakura, she had a devious smile on her face. –You! What have you done to him?!
She looked at him still with the devious smile, and winked, when she did so a flash of light showed up blinding both foolish men. When the light whore off, she was gone but Jeff still went after her, he was mad, not only for her beating him up, but also for kissing him. He gained sight of her entering in the portal.
-What the hell is a gate doing there? –He said to himself.
Sakura got out of the portal, but before she could close it, Jeff came through it as well. She tripped and fell to the ground, and he managed to reach her. He got on her and she couldn’t move her body.
-Now I got you! –He stabbed her multiple times in the chest, making her cry of pain. After seeing her bleeding spread until the roots of a nearby cherry tree, he got up; imagining she would be dead by now. But when he looked more closely at her, he noticed that she was still sobbing.
-Please… Please stop… It hurts… -She said while crying.
-What the?! You’re still alive?!
He looked around and saw the pink cherry trees turning to tones of red and blue. Suddenly she tried to get up.
-Blue for tears… Red for blood… -Her wounds started healing. And the blood was absorbed by the earth beneath them.
-Please… Stop… I don’t want…
Jeff dropped his knife in fear when he saw that her blue eyes had turned black. She forced herself to reach him; tentacles grew from her back, just like Slender’s. Her hair started floating and grew bigger than herself, the tentacles lifted her from the ground, and her hair embraced Jeff and lifted him in the air. He looked around and saw the trees dying, turning into black dead chery trees. He looked at her face and heard her saying:
-Black for death. -Her hair started to tighten up around Jeff, almost smashing his bones.
-AAAARGH!! –The pain he felt was horrible, the pain made him cry, even though he didn’t want to.
Upon seeing his tears, she quit the smashing process, letting him fall to the ground. The trees came back to normal, and so did she. Even though she was weakened, she ran to Jeff’s body. He didn’t move at all.
-Did I… Did I kill him? No… It can’t be! –She turned his body looking upwards and placed her ear on his chest; to her relief, it was still beating. –Thanks goodness… But… What do I do with him? I can’t just leave him here…
She decided to use her powers to drag him to her bedroom. She placed him on the couch she had in her room that she used to play video games. Using her arcane powers she found out she had broken his arm and his rib cage in three different places. She used healing magic to make a healing glow that would work like some sort of magical salve. She applied the glow on the places where she’d have hurt him. The effect would take a few hours to completely heal. So she went to sleep after leaving a note in the coffee table in front of him saying to not remove the glow until she woke up.
When Jeff woke up, he saw the note, but didn’t see the girl. He looked around a little bit and saw a strange room, with lots of old books and weird paintings, drawings of strange signs all over the room. It had an eerie atmosphere. Then Sakura came in.
-Y-you’re awake!! –She ran to him and bowed upon him. -すみません！すみません！(Sorry!)
-I-I mean I’m sorry, so sorry!! Please forgive me!!
-Wait, calm down!! Sheesh… And what the heck is this on my chest?
-It a healing spell I cast on you.
Sakura looked at the clock.
-Welp, it’s already been 8 hours, let me take it off. –She touched his chest, as she did it, the glow was absorbed into her hand. She did the same with his arm.
-Why… Why are you helping me? Weren’t you the very person that almost killed me?
She turned her face away, picked up his clothes and threw them at Jeff.
-Dress up. I have to get you to your home.
He dressed up and they went back to the cherry woods.
-Hum… Why we need to come here for you to cast the gate? (How can she even cast a gate, for starters…? Only Creepypastas were supposed to be able to open it…)
-I come here for harder spells, the sakura trees seem to give me a boost of strength.
-Oh yes, we’re in Japan, ya’ know? In your homeland they are called cherry trees I think.
-Jeff, The Killer. I research on you.
-That’s kinda freaky, yaŽknow? … Which reminds me, you never told me your name.
-You owe me your life, so I guess it’s ok to tell you my name.
-Hey! Don’t get funny ideas! I—
-Sakura Hiroshimi, that’s my name. My family and my only friend call me Saku. I’d say nice to meet you, but if I did that, I’d be lying.
They arrived in a big natural circle formed by cherry trees; Sakura then said strange words used to cast the spell. The gate opened, but casting the spell drained almost all her Mana.
-*Pant pant pant*… There it is…
-A-are you okay?
-*Pant pant* I’m fine… You… You can… -She collapsed of exhaustion.
-Sakura!! –Jeff ran to her, he looked to the gate and saw the mansion where everyone lived. He placed his hand on her chest; her heart was beating slower and slower. It’d eventually stop beating if nothing was done about it. – (Damn it! I don’t have choice!)
He passed through the gate, and carried her to the mansion.
-Hey! Somebody help me over here!
Jane was the first one to hear and came running.
-What happened, Smile.Idiot? –She then saw Sakura in his arms. –Wh-what the?!?!
-Is Slenderman already here?
Slenderman was the wisest of the creepypastas, and knew it all about a lot of stuff.
-What happened, Jeff?!
-She cast a gate without a key and collapsed!
-Without a key?!
-She helped me! Please!
They made her drink some demon blood to stabilize her Mana. And waited hoped for her to hang on; while they were waiting Jeff explained what had happened.
-She became what?!?! –Eyeless Jack was also there, and he was quite surprised.
-Some kind of demoniac monster, I think. Tentacles, black eyes, living hair… That was a creepy scene.
-She also seems to possess dark powers, to be able to open a gate to hell like that.
-Daddy? What’s happening? Who is this girl you’re talking about?
-S-Sally! This is a little too complicated to a young girl like you. Why don’t you go play outside with Emily? –Slender didn’t want little kids to worry.
After she went out they kept talking and discussing about Sakura’s strange powers.
-(Could Sakura be a Yokai? No, that’s impossible… That kind of spirit was extinct long ago…)
-Slender? Is something bothering you? –Hoodie asked.
-Oh!! Nothing! Nothing at all!
-Hum… If you say so…
-I have to visit a friend; Jack, would you mind looking after her for me? Jeff, I need you to come with me.
They both agreed. Slender and Jeff went to see Slender’s friend, KageKao. He’s Japanese so he might understand her situation. Eyeless Jack visited her room each half an hour. Before he could visit her another time, she was seen walking out the door, with long hair being dragged around with her.
-S-Sakura! You should rest!
Before Jack could reach out to her, she said:
-Leave me alone…
Her eyes were black, she started to cry blood.
-It hurts… I don’t want to! It hurts too much!!
-My eyes, it hurts!! It hurts so much!
Upon closer inspection, he realized that her eyes weren’t black, she had NO eyes!
-Wh-what is this?!
-Th-this? –She ran to a mirror and saw her fearsome reflex, dark holes where she had eyes, her hair floating around her, and strange clothing she wasn’t familiarized with. –No… NO!! NO NO NO NO!!! THAT CAN’T BE!!!
She rampaged through the door and ran into the woods, and hid in them. The Creepypastas looked for her, but she could not be found. After some time she returned to normal but…
-No… No… I don’t want to… I’m not a monster… I’M NOT EVIL!!!
She cast a shadow dagger with magic and hit her own heart.
Her loud scream was heard by Jeff and Slender while doing their patrol to trying to find her.
-Sakura?! Where are you?!
-Where are you, Sakura?! –Jeff felt like he still owed her a thing or two, so he could not let her die until he repaid the favor.
They found her bleeding in the woods, lifted by many spikes crossing her body and preventing her from moving. There she awaited death.
-SAKURA!! Get her out of there, Slender!!!
With his tentacles, he broke the spikes, but leaving the parts that still crossed her body behind.
-You idiot! What do you think you were doing?!
-It hurts!! It hurts so much!!! Why won’t the pain go away?!?! –She cried in agony, the many spikes and daggers around her caused her pain but she wasn’t able to simply die.
-(This girl… What kind of demon could she be? A new one or a too ancient to remember? KageKao said there wasn't any known Yokai like that, so what is she?!) –Slender thought.
-It’s hurting, it’s hurting so much!! I want it to stop!!! Please make it stop!!! I’m not a monster!!! I don’t want… I—
Jeff then hugged her softly, worried about her wounds, about her mind. A strange flash went in her mind, she had memories which she had never seen before.
-Onii-chan… Onee-chan… I… I… -She pushed herself away from Jeff. –I KILLED THEM ALL!!!
-My brothers, my sisters… I KILLED THEM!! I KILLED MY FAMILY!!! *Sob*
She cried for a while, her blood turned to water, it turned into her tears, the spikes broke into tiny shards, and she quickly healed. Her words made Jeff remember of Liu and he started crying himself. While that, Slender marked the way out of the forest with the circle with “x” for them to follow after they calmed down; after he was done, he went home.
-Big brother… You are like my big brother, Kitsunoki… You’re stubborn and don’t like feelings of compassion… They make you feel strange…
-Uh… No, I’m not!!
-Kitsunoki… I miss you, onii-chan… -She cried a bit more than looked at Jeff. –Promise me!
-Promise you’ll be my big brother!! Jeff-onii-chan!
-O-okay… Don’t need to push it! But… If you remember… What are you?
-Our kind has no name… No one had time to give us one… We were born from mixing many different demons’ blood with some of life essence, the Mana. Our hair came from a demon that was able to control its victims’ hair, making ourselves able to control ours at will. I believe our tentacles came from Slenderman… It must not have been easy to find one of his kind to donate blood. It wasn’t normal for me to not have eyes… All others had but… My eyes… Were dangerous… Those that looked at my eyes seemed to be somehow affected by dark Mana and their… Their…
-Their heads would explode…
-Yes… Somehow, the sight of my eyes… Had a flammable effect in their eyeballs, and the explosion would destroy their heads.
-But you can’t die!
-That also was a feature only mine… My brothers and sisters… They all could die… When I saw myself in a mirror for the first time… My eye bled but I didn’t die…
-That’s quite unfortunate…
-My closest brother and sister… They were Kitsunoki and Ayame… Onii-chan, one-chan…
-So your kind is a mix of many devils, and apparently, you had some extra features.
-*Nod* After 5 of my siblings died, my papa and my mama took away my eyes, and taught me how to use magic to see. They were the ones that mixed the blood; they weren’t really our parents, just two foxes trying something out…
-How… How did you…
-Three years ago, I had a fight with papa and mama, I wanted my eyes back, seeing with magic was tiring, but they said it was dangerous, they said it was for the best, they said I had to make that sacrifice in order to protect my siblings. But it hurts seeing with magic… So I thought that if I didn’t have siblings to protect, they’d give me back my eyes…
-In the dormer-
-*Sniff* Why papa? Why mama? It hurts… Why can’t you see? I can’t die mama… Papa… And I don’t want to live in pain… If I don’t have any family… I won’t have who to endanger…
-Saku? Are you okay?
-Onee-chan… Onii-chan… I’m sorry…
I got up and went to where my other siblings were… I killed them all…
-Ayama and Kitsunoki’s last moment-
-Saku?! Why are you doing this?!
-I’m sorry Kitsu… Aya… BUT I DON’T WANNA FEEL PAIN ANYMORE!!!
With that, my tentacles went through his heart and my claws through my sister’s.
-Back to real time-
-Wait, what?! Claws?!
-That’s right… I haven’t been able to use them for a while but… Apparently Rake’s claws are part of who I am, they appear when I want them to, and I have fangs, in case you didn’t notice…
Upon a moment of silence, she got up.
-Papa… Mama… They have hidden my eyes somewhere… I want them back…
-But your eyes can’t be controlled!
-I’ll learn how to control them! But I have to find them first… Onii-chan… For this day on… I’m… I’m a non-official Creepypasta!
-Those parents in my house are fake… They aren’t my parents, they never were! They didn’t give me my eyes! I won’t let them go unpunished for breaking a promisse!!!
She cast a shadow key and opened a gate to her cherry woods. She invaded her parents’ room and asked them one last time for her eyes.
-WHERE ARE MY EYES?!
-We can’t remember… We’ve hidden it long ago, maybe even destroyed them…
She used her hair to break their bones, the fangs to rip their flesh, and her claws to take away their own eyes. Covered in their blood, she collapsed and got back to normal.
-Saku?! Saku?! God damn it, that girl keeps running away! Any sign of her, Jack?
-Nothing yet, Jeff. Wait, is that a house?
-Dude, seriously, how can you see it?
-No time for that! That’s smell of blood!!
They ran through the woods until they found a house with a bloody window. “That’s got to be it!” they thought. They broke in the house and ran upstairs; they found her lying on the ground beside her parents’ bodies.
-Saku!! –Jeff ran to her. –Dang it! This demon thing still drains too much of her…
-Where are they? I’m scared, onii-chan… It hurts, onii-chan…
-(Dang it! I’m no good in situations like this! Oh god, what do I do?! Where the hell is Jack to help when we need him?!)
Suddenly Eyeless Jack and Jane came in.
-J-Jane?!?! I don’t think this is a good time for you to come kill me!
-I didn’t come to kill you, idiot! I came for Sakura!
Jane came to Sakura, and held her softly. That was the closer Jane and Jeff had ever gotten to each other without being trying to kill themselves.
-Onee-chan… It hurts, one-chan! I want my eyes one-chan! Where are my eyes?! –Sakura looked closer to Jane’s black eyes. –You don’t have eyes too, onee-chan?
-My eyes are black since before I can remember…
-They are pretty, onee-chan!
-Thank you… You’re very lucky, you know? I must admit that this idiot can do something good once in a while.
-C’mon, let’s go home, everyone. You come too Saku.
Sakura smiled softly, they helped her up and they all went to the mansion, Sakura Hiroshimi never was found again. But many people were found dead and without their eyeballs since then. One of them recorded a tape before dying, in the tape she said:
“Did you see my eyes? I want my eyes…” and “It hurts…”
In the mansion, Jeff and Jane leave their endless fight behind and take care of Sakura. Jack is kind of her teacher, he helps her hone her other senses so that she won’t need vision that badly until she finds her eyes.About Slenderman, at least THAT girl he wouldn’t need to take care of; Sally and Emily were already a pain, he also often had to stop fights between Jane and Jeff, so the coming of Sakura really helped him a little.
-Some months later after dinner-
-C’mon, Saku. Let’s go sleep, shall we? –Jeff asked.
Jeff and Jane took her to her bedroom. Even though she was 15, she acted like a little kid; maybe it was a characteristic of her kind, maybe the fact of losing her family, but she was like that, and she was much loved.
While preparing her to go to sleep, she said.
-Onii-chan… Onee-chan… I love you…
-We love you too, little sis. –Jane kissed Sakura’s forehead and they made their way outside, when Jeff was at the door, Sakura said:
-Onii-chan… Tell Sensei I said thanks for him to be helping me.
-All right, Saku. I will.
He closed the door and they went downstairs. They both sat on the couch in the living room.
-She said thanks to you, Jack. –Jeff said with a happy tone.
-Saku’s a really sweet girl…
-Even though she’s almost 16, she still acts like a big baby. That’s really cute. –Jane said.
-You two are really taking the place of her parents, aren’t ya’? –Slendy said, with a devious tone.
Jeff and Jane blushed like cherries.
-Of course not!
-Taking care of her!
-But she DO call you guys onii and onee-chan,doesn’t she?
-Well, that’s true but nothing like that!
-Chill out guys, we won’t tell anyone the kid has softened your hatred for each other. –Jack said with that same devious tone Slendy had used earlier.
-*Both* WE DIDN’T SOFTEN!!!
Slenderman and Eyeless Jack burst into laughing.
Sakura now goes after people to try to find her eyes; she steals them, then try to see if they’re hers using psych powers, if not, she just leaves them there. But she has a family to protect her, and one day, the pain may stop.
-The end? I dunno, after all she still haven't gotten her eyes... =____=
