Thud! Fang Rui groaned as he felt his head was knocking against something. His eyelid felt heavy, and he could not open it. He vaguely felt someone was pulling his leg.
The man had dragged Fang Rui for a while before he stopped. Soon, there were the sounds of large furniture being moved, small items falling on the floor and scratching noise from the wooden floor. It sounded as if someone was drawing something.
Fang Rui wished to open his eyes, but he felt a strange heaviness on his body. It felt like something was shackling him down. He was conscious of himself and his body, but he was unable to control any part of his limb.
Sleep paralyzed? No, that is wrong… Any person would feel alarmed and struggle when they were conscious but unable to move. The same went for Fang Rui. His mind quickly churned for a solution.
He moved his right finger and it twitches, once, twice. Fang Rui then tried to move his whole hand. He felt like he was breaking through some sort of unknown chain around his body.
It was a strange, horrifying experience. He was alive, he was breathing, but he could not move.
Fang Rui had more control of his body. He could move his arm and he opened his eyes, hoping to be fully awakened from this dream paralyze. But the first thing that greeted him was a man with unnatural black paint around his face, and a white eyes staring down at him.
Fang Ruis body jolted awake almost immediately. His leg threw a kick to the man. The man was screaming in surprise but he had evaded the kick.
”The Prophecy is true! The Prophecy is true! ” The unknown man screamed as he ran around Fang Rui, doing a cryptid dance as though he was worshiping a miracle.
Fang Rui was frightened by the display this man had shown. He scrambled away to the corner of the room. At the same time, he surveyed his surroundings.
There was only heavy furniture, a chair, a lamp oil, chalks, unfinished drawing and a single black notebook. There was not much that he could use as a weapon.
”Who are you! ”, Fang Rui half-shouted and half-questioned. He remembered he came back from work late, and fell to his bed without changing his clothes. This did not look like his apartment. It looked more like a warehouse.
The unknown man was still dancing in a frenzy. Then all the sudden he stopped, looking straightforwardly at Fang Rui. The man mouthed a disturbing smile. He stretched his own cheek, further smearing the paint on his face, then pointed at Fang Rui, asking.
”Who am I? Who are you? ”
Fang Rui wanted to retort. That is supposed to be my question! Yet, something was weighing on his heart, as though receiving a premonition. He could not answer with his own name.
”I— ”, Fang Rui quickly shook his own feelings. He was a man that believed in logic more than superstition. There was no reason why he should be hung up on this foreign feeling. But the man laughing cut him off.
The man was laughing like a madman. Before Fang Rui could reply, he had pounced on Fang Rui without warning.
Fang Rui fell on his back and knocked his head. He groaned over the pain. The madman was speaking incoherent words that he did not understand, as though chanting something. Then, the madman bit the skin of his thumb off.
Blood flowed from the teared skin. The wounded thumb was placed on Fang Ruis forehead, and stretching down to Fang Ruis nose. Fang Rui felt goosebumps crawling on his body. Which man in their right mind would tear off their skin and speak in such cryptid words?
Fang Rui kicked the madmans abdomen without hesitation. The madman was pushed back, and Fang Rui used this chance to scramble away. But before he could, the madman clutched his own stomach and pulled Fang Ruis leg with another. Fang Rui slipped and fell on the floor.
The madman kept laughing without an end. He pressed his weight on Fang Ruis leg and Fang Rui was greatly alarmed with the sudden change. Fang Rui reached out for the chalk near them, and crushed it with his fist. The madman came close to Fang Ruis face again and Fang Rui threw the chalk right at the madmans eyes.
The madman was not expecting the attack. He screamed in pain and scrambled back. The madman scratched his eyes until it was redden, while Fang Rui drew a distance between them while looking for the door.
I have to get out of here! Fang Rui did not understand the situation he was in, but finding a safer place was top priority.
However, Fang Rui did not anticipate the madman would howl in pain. He rammed all over the place, knocking the small furniture and item to the floor, including the lamp oil.
The lamp oil fell on the floor. It rolled near the furniture and fire caught on the wood. It only took a blink for the fire to spread.
Fang Rui was alarmed. He took off his vest and stepped the fire away, but there were many burnable things within the warehouse. It was no
