THE DARK CREATURE THAT IS ME
By Charles Ivey
INT. DARK CORNER. NIGHT
We see a dark figure curled over a computer in a dark corner the only light in the room is the ghostly glow of the screen. A dark and heavy song screams from the speakers as the twisted figure pounds away at the blood stained keyboard. The song suddenly stops and all is silent for a pause then the shadowy figure turns with supernatural liquid swiftness
Greetings and welcome to my dark corner of the abyss, the place where you will always find me, my sanctuary in the shadows.
In this light you can now see that Charles has what looks like a wire plugged right into his temple it is flesh and veins and wires intertwined
What are you looking at there child? Oh I see you have noticed the connection I have with this device. Indeed if I wasn�t attached to this computer my mind would explode for I need this to draw the creations from my brain all the ideas and stories that constantly bombard me from every direction and if I didn�t write poetry, short stories, screenplays and perform as a vocalist I would surely overload and drop dead hitting the floor with a thud and my brains would no doubt ooze from every orifice on my head. BUT NO!
Charles suddenly and violently leaps to his feet his hand raised high and disappearing into the darkness
Yes! Indeed if it were not for this cord of gore funneling my ideas into this machine the world would surely be robbed of some of the most exciting entertainment that the future has to offer.
He is really excited now and seems to be starting to vibrate and shake with adrenaline he reaches off into the shadows and retrieves a Paper Crown, the kind children get at fast food restaurants and puts it on his head and laughs a magnificent guttural laugh
HA HA HA AND I!
Charles begins to really get into it now he swings his arms with enthusiasm in the shadows as he continues his speech and we hear that he is knocking things off of the shelves and just trashing the room
YES I! I will be one of the many who will be a part of that magic a part of that creation a part of the future and yes indeed listen when I tell you...
We hear the computer make a noise that reveals that something has finished downloading and Charles is quickly back in his chair at the machine
Finally the Thundercats Pilot is finished downloading
My name is Charles Ivey and I�m not really quite as twisted as I make myself seem, I myself am much more me than the me I myself just wrote here for me and you by me... Umm my... Me umm... Yeah well...
