I was seventeen when she came. I’d been living with my abusive mother for seventeen long, painful years. It was around midnight, and my mother was already asleep, so when the three soft raps at the front door came it was me who answered. An odd looking little girl stood there, with cheeks pale and colorless, blonde hair in braided pigtails, pink dress torn a little at the hem, feet bare and turning slightly blue from the cold of winter, and black eyes. Fathomless, deep black eyes. I quickly let her in, thinking of how horridly underdressed she was. It wasn’t until later I’d wonder why she’d not been shivering, or even question as to why she was here in the first place. I got her into the living room, wrapping her little form in a thick afgan my grandmother knitted. She held it, though it didn’t seem to affect her, and I smiled.

“What’s your name, sweety?”

A long silence passed, in which she stared at me. I was beginning to be discomforted by her black gaze when she parted her lips and spoke in a soft voice.

“Lacy Morgan.”

I nodded, smiling again.

“You can stay here tonight, Lacy.” I said, motioning to the couch. She curled up in a little ball, black eyes still on me, and I exited the room. That night I slept soundly, not worrying about my mother beating me or the strange little girl on my couch.

When morning came and I trudged into the kitchen, I was greeted with a coffee mug to the shoulder. I gave a feeble shout of pain, staring at my mother.

“What the hell did you do? Why is there dirt on the couch?!” she shouted, confusing me greatly. Upon investigating, I found that Lacy had vanished, the only proof she’d been there being some dirt that must have fallen off her dress or feet. I took responsibility, earning myself a strong hit to my cheek, then left for school. While there I heard something that sent chills through my spine.

“Lacy Morgan was found dead last night.”

I passed the day waiting for anymore news on the subject, but found none. Upon arriving home, the news was broadcasting a live report on her though.

“Lacy Morgan, six years of age, was reported dead at seven last night. Her body was located in the backyard, buried there in her pink dress. So far there has been no sign of her mother, Marrisa Morgan, who is suspected to be the killer. Marrisa has reportedly abused Lacy multiple times, and may be responsible for her death.”

Suddenly, a picture of Lacy appeared on the screen. She appeared very close to how she had when I met her, blonde hair in braids, pink dress, pale face. Only, her cheeks had color… and her eyes were baby blue. To most this would seem unimportant, but to me it was. She’d died before arriving at my house, if what the news castor said was true. Died hours before. I tried to play it off, going about my buisness. I went to bed early so as not to have to see my mother. It was around midnight when I awoke to cool fingers stroking the bruise on my cheek. I sighed, leaning into the small hand.

“Never again.” Lacy whispered, before her hand vanished. Not ten minutes later I heard my mother screaming. I rushed into her bedroom, nearly fainting at what I saw.

My mom was thrashing wildly on her bed, a small creature having buried its face into her chest. I could hear the soung of flesh tearing, and my mother’s screaming increased in volume. I wished I hadn’t gotten up. Later on, I’d tell myself I hadn’t. But I had. So, when Lacy pull back from the gaping hole in my mother’s chest cavity, I had a plain view of her razor sharp teeth, glinting in the light. Glinting with my mother’s blood. She smiled innocently at me for a moment, before swiftly tearing out my mother’s jugular. That time I did faint. When I came to, I was in my bed. I walked to my mom’s room, morbid curiousity getting the best of me. Upon opening the door, I found the room empty. The bed made neatly, as if my mom had left for work early. The only oddities were the dirty childs footprints, and the open window, showing that Lacy had in fact visited. I never saw my mother again, and I never missed her either. I eventually got married, and we had a child together. I named her Lacy. Recently, I noticed the neighbors daughter has all sorts of scrapes and bruises on her arms. I’ve started watching their home. And the other day I saw something odd: a little girl running barefoot through their back yard up to their backdoor. It was around midnight, so I couldn’t be for sure, but I thought she met my eyes with her black ones. And I could swear she mouthed two words at me.

Never again.

          Phone didn’t pop up here.

          But then with what Lacy does to those parents, gnashing away at their bodies like that?

          After devouring enough flesh, a skeleton (most probably) did pop out :@

          Yeah I went there. Sorry :D

          Amazingly well written story my friend. This kept me feeling a sense of frailty towards the protagonist but as Lacy appears and proves what she is about, I felt something I don’t remember ever feeling for an Antagonist save for one or two great horror movies; Sanctuary.

          Not often do you see the antagonist become drawn in a way that is so dark to imagine (Pitch black eyes on a pale child paired with razor sharp teeth to rip people apart), yet somehow have the story bring them to the foreground and make them the protector of the Protagonist.

          In this way, the horror of what is really going on pushes the unnatural theme of this girl away from her appearance and projects it on the sickening abuse of the children at the hands of their own parents.

          Quite a way to make something with a supernatural theme turn so real with a subject that is disturbing to think of in the least.

          Al dent­e pasta indeed. 9/10 for lack of length.

      Lacy said that because she was a abused as a child and so was the main character, lacy was doing the girl a favor. She probably knew that the main character was being abused, that’s why she said never again. She meant never again will she or and child be abused. Its probably a revenge thing.

      “Never again” As in never again will your mother abuse you. That’s why she said that to him before she killed his mother. Its because child abuse is how she was killed.

      Thiswas most likely ment for sort of n “Old Era” where you help people out,no matter what. The author was most likely emphasizing that fact, also adding a wider variety of what to sy next. It wouldn’t have been a very intruiging story if you just read “We took her to the hospitol, she was given food, but, weirdly, did not eat. The next morn, Lacy was gone. The end.” See, it tells nothing of the supernatural form of Lacy, nor the fac that she was abused aswell.

      I think the narrator was greeted with a sense of relief when he saw her. Some supernatural beings can create that, and obviously if Lacy wanted him to let her in she would make him feel at ease.
      Either that, or the narrator related to the child’s neglect and wanted her in the house and warm as soon as possible.

      It’s a lose-lose situation. If you sympathize with Lucy, you are supporting a killer, even if her first victim, her mother, had it coming to her (Yes, Lucy killed her mother, read through and it will make sense if you didn’t catch that). On the other hand, if you sympathize with the abusive mothers, well, enough said. To be blunt, you reap what you sow.

      Lacy* said “Never Again” as in the abuse will stop. The abused children will “Never again” be abused. I would like to see a sequal, though, maybe telling of the life the author had in between his/her abusive mother’s death. Did he/she go live with his/her grandmother, the one that knitted the afgan?

    Okay, those who were wondering. She was abused, and her mom wound up killing her. Therefore, she decides a girl (boys too I am sure, I just didnt write that in) won’t be abused again if she has anything to say about it. She kills those who do it. I thought I made that obvious, sorry. Lacy hates child abuse. She doesnt want anyone to go through it. Never again. ^~^

    I really don’t see how you guys can NOT understand what she means when she says “never again.” It’s already been explained twice in the comments, and the author stated it again for a third time.

    Anyway, this was a really excellent piece of prose. It wasn’t “scary,” but it WAS superb. I absolutely approve – thanks for sharing with us.

    Wonderful. For once justice in a supernatural sense has been served, but not all weird like Willow Men. Nicely done Jade, written well, bittersweet.

    .isn’t there a story on here about a girl and her abusive grandmother? She prays for something to save her, then that thing eats her grandma, and the next day, she smiles back?

    Kind of the same story line, but different heros.
