Alessandra tossed back and forth in her bed whimpering in her sleep. She's had nightmares ever since she made the deal with the devil. She's seen him in her dreams, he was always there and the closer she got to her due date, the more active her dreams became, the more she could feel his cold breath on her skin, feel his large warm hands on her body. She could hear him whispering in her hear all the time. He was torturing her in his own way.
Alessandra ran into the large bedroom and slammed the door. She backed away from it and looked around. She quickly ran and hid in the closet and placed her hand over her mouth to keep him from hearing her. But it was no use; he would know wherever she went. There was a psychic connection between the two and it scared her out of her mind.
She watched the bedroom door open slowly through the small openings of the closet and she moved back against the wall of the closet. She looked around her trying to find anything that could hurt him but nothing was in the damn closet but his clothes.
"Alessandra," he taunted her, "You know I love this cat and mouse game we play."
She heard his footsteps getting closer. She closed her eyes and waited for him to open the door.
Silence continued to haunt her and she hated when he did this. She didn't know when he was going to jump out and make her scream. She kept her eyes closed afraid to open them but at the same time she was afraid to keep them close. Afraid he may send something to her.
The next thing she knew the closet doors slammed open and she jumped opening her eyes. She looked out the closet doors and he wasn't there. She wanted to get out of the closet but was too afraid. She couldn't move.
Alessandra's eyes moved back and forth around the room but she still couldn't see him. She slowly crawled out of the closet and looked around. She went to get up when she felt hands in her hair pulling her up.
"I win," he said in her ear and she tried to remove his hand from her hair
She heard him laugh as he threw her onto the bed. She turned and tried to get up but ropes came out of nowhere and tied her to it.
"No! Please!" she cried as she watched him walk around the bed. He had this smile on his face that frightened her even more.
"You hear that Alessandra?" he asked getting on the bed and straddling her hips. She looked up at him fear in her eyes, "I'm close Alessandra," he leaned over her and she turned her head crying, "So close I can almost taste you."
Dean licked up the side of her face and she cried harder making him laugh.
"NO!" screamed Alessandra sitting up. She looked around and saw she was still in her one bedroom apartment. She ran a hand down her face and then through her hair. She looked out the window and saw the sun was up.
Today was it. He was going to take her today. It was only a matter of time. She didn't know when he was going to show up, where and how but he was and she had to be prepared. She was going to Hell…no correction she was going to be the Devil's Bitch.
Alessandra got ready for the bed. She made sure to bring a change of clothes to change after work before meeting her brother for dinner.
Alessandra couldn't help but laugh, "The last supper." She shook her head and headed out the door. She looked around her seeing the children out for the summer playing in their yards. She frowned and got into her car.
Once she made it to work she got into the elevator and headed up to her department. When the doors opened there were people walking around getting ready for the day. She walked down the aisle towards her desk. But when her eyes landed on her desk she slowed her steps. She looked around and bit her bottom lip as she reached her desk.
There sat a bunch of black roses. She lifted the vase looking for a card and that's when she heard, "So close I can now even smell you."
Tears threatened to fall from her eyes as she slammed the vase and flowers in her waste basket. Her co-worker next to her gave her a look.
"I have allergies," she said and sat down at her desk and ran her hands through her hair.
"I can hear your heart beating frantically against your chest."
Alessandra looked around her but couldn't see him anywhere.
"I can taste you on the tip of my tongue."
"Stop," she whispered, "Leave me alone."
She heard his evil laugh and it made her jump in her seat. She had to focus. She had to get a grip.
After work Alessandra had quickly gotten dress to meet her brother and headed out the door. She walked down the street towards the small diner she was meeting Kyle at. As she walked down the street she saw someone by the diner just staring at her. He was standing in the middle of the sidewalk as everyone passed him without even taking a look. She slowed her steps as she got closer and saw who it was.
"No," she said quietly shaking her head, "Not now…please, give me a few more hours."
Dean shook his head no with that smile on his face.
Alessandra couldn't take it anymore, "Get away from me! Leave me alone!"
She opened her eyes and saw her brother standing in front of her. She looked around and saw Dean nowhere.
"Are you ok?" asked her brother.
Alessandra nodded, "Yeah just a stressful day."
Kyle smiled and placed his arm around her shoulders, "Come on we'll get you a cheeseburger." She gave a small smile to him but looked over her shoulder thinking Dean was still there.
Kyle could tell something was on Alessandra's mind during dinner. She wasn't her usual talkative self.
"Kyle," he looked up at her and she smiled. She took his hands in hers, "You know I love you right?"
Kyle smiled, "Of course…are you ok?"
"Yeah, like I said a stressful day. I just want you to know I'd do anything for you. You're the best little brother anyone could ever ask for. And last year when…" She held back the tears.
"Hey," said Kyle squeezing her hands, "I'm not going anywhere. The cancer is gone and you're stuck with me until we're old."
Alessandra smiled and held her brother's hands tight, "You're the best you know?"
She was going to miss him terribly. But she knew if she didn't go through with her part of the deal he would die and she couldn't live with that.
Alessandra ran a comb with her hair and looked at herself one more time. She walked out of the bathroom and into her bedroom. She looked around with her arms around her waiting for him to pop out of nowhere and scare her. She swallowed hard and got into bed. She held the covers close to her as she looked around her dark room. He wasn't anywhere. She was afraid to close her eyes but sleep and her stressful day started to get to her as she laid in bed.
Pretty soon sleep consumed her and she was in her dreamland waiting for him.
Alessandra, surprisingly slept peaceful that whole night. Something that hasn't happened in a year. She had a peaceful night's sleep where she didn't wake up screaming because of Dean.
Alessandra began to stir with a smile on her face from her great night sleep. She moved around and hugged the pillow beneath her and that's when she noticed the pillow did not feel like hers. This one was feeling like satin underneath her and so was her sheet. She opened her eyes and quickly sat up. She was not in her bedroom. She didn't know where she was. She looked down at herself and noticed she was wearing a long black satin nightgown.
Her heart beat quickly against her chest and as she wondered where she was. And that's when she noticed it was the same bedroom as her dreams.
"No, no, no," she said getting out of the bed. "Oh God please no."
The door to the bedroom opened and there he stood with that smug smile on his face, "Welcome home Alessandra."
Alessandra felt her breath hitch quickly in her throat. "This isn't happening," she said quietly and closed her eyes and prayed when she opened them she wasn't there, "This isn't real." She opened them and he was still there. "I'm dreaming, I'm just dreaming."
She yelped when Dean grabbed her arms and she opened her eyes. He continued to smile, "Welcome to your nightmare princess." Dean's one hand slid down her side and snaked around her waist, "You look beautiful." Dean dipped her and his lips crashed on hers claiming her as his. She squeezed at his arms trying to do anything to get him to stop but he continued to kiss her and she knew this was it, this was the end.
