Pain
Jonathan Graffy kissed his girlfriend goodbye and waved to her as he walked out the door. He turned at the sidewalk with a flirting smiling as he was at the sidewalk watching his girlfriend clinging the door watching him. He started of down the cold street. As he breathed the breath showed up on the crisp night air. He thought about his wonderful girlfriend. He realized after an hour that he'd been walking around town aimlessly. Imbarressed he starred at his digital watch that he lit up. It read 10:00 pm. DARN! He ran to his house.
He finaly got to his house and he opened the door. His mother stood up from the couch the second she heard the door. Ann, Jonathan's mother, starred at him disapointed. "Where have you been sweety. I've been worried sick." She asked pulling off his coat.
"I've just been walking around. I know, I know, an hour is a little more than just a walk. I..." Jonathan tried to explain when his mom interupted.
"It's alright just don't do it again. I waited here on the sofa for you as your older sister had to take the car already."
Jonathan ran in the kitchen and looked at the clock. 10:58! His sister was going to take him to a party at 10:30 because she needed to go to her boyfriends house at 10:30. Jonathan was fifteen and going on twenty five. He'd been like that his whole life. He always was alittle smarter and more mature. "Oh f..."
"What did I say about cursing Jonathan?" His mother demanded from the living room.
"That it makes you sound stupid," Jonathan said, not up to his mother's life lesson's. "Can I go to Collin's house?" Jonathan asked his mother politely. It was Saturday and Collin was his only friend who wouldn't go to a hip-hop party. Collin was more into celeron prossecors than rap. It wasn't that he didn't like it, but he had Napster so what was the piont of going.
"I guess you'd better come back by oh about..."
"I'll stay the night mom. Don't worry. Ever since those Pain murders you don't want me walking."
"I just don't want you to get hurt."
"I know. I won't. If it makes you feel better I'll get a friend to drive me there."
"Who?
"Well," Jonathan searched his mind. Matt had a baseball game. By now it'd be over. "Matt."
"Okay."
Jonathan called Matt up. They arranged a plan and Matt would stay with Collin and him. The 1996 Ford P.O.S. drove up to the street. Jonathan said goodby to his mom and jumped in the used automobile.
"Hey J. sup!" Matt said as Jonathan got in the passengers side.
"Oh nothing much. My mom is freaked about those Pain murders." Jonathan said turning the dial on the radio to a rap station.
"I know what you meen."
"Did you win tonight?" Jonathan asked refering to the earlier game Matt played in.
"Yeah. 10-8."
All of a sudden the car swirved. Jonathan rapidly looked around. A bloody corpse was on the road. "Keep driving!" Jonathan screamed.
"There is the cell phone." Matt said pionting franticly to the dashboard.
Jonathan grabbed the phone and called 911. He told them the street name and that it was on the south side of town. The car swirved. gloved hands covered Jonathan and Matt's mouths from the backseat. Jonathan and Matt were both talented athletes. They pulled the hands off their faces and jumped out ofthe doors. They rolled into their fall, but they still felt extreme pain. Six dark dressed men walked up to the two men. Three men went for Jonathan who had a football build, and three man went for Matt with a baseball build. Clearly outnumbered the pair didn't dare seperate. The car the duo had been in earlier crashed in the curb, yet the gangster in the car got out and walked up the to them. Matt and Jonathan were now on the ground held down by three poeple each. Then the gang took them to a dark and damp alley.
When the eight people got there the attackers pulled out knives. The two ran away, but then fell down realizing that their feet were tied. Jonathan felt sharp pain in his back. The pain was extreme. The brut point of the knife pertruded his skin. He started blacking out along with Matt. The gang stopped stabing them and punched them. The two got beat till they were bloody pulps. The gang took red spray paint and on the backs of the victims wrote PaInE. They laughed, but Jonathan, just getting conscience, back kicked. To weak to make a mark, the gang retaliated with a number of mutilating jabbs to the ribcage of Jonathan. They then took Matt and muffled him out by putting him in a dumpster, and forsed Jonathan to watch.
Cop sigrens blarred out and the light blinded Jonathan for a second or two. Then the squad car came crusading through the alley way. Sparks flew from the wall and touching side doors. The murderers dropped Jonathan and bailed. Magnums fired at the killers but managed to miss. The driver saw Jonathan and came to a screaching hault, but not before crushing the dumpster Matt had been thrown in. The cops untied Jonathan who now was going insane. He yelled stuff like "He went that way!" Then he broke down to solid tears. He peered at the dumpsters shreds and the shreds of his old friend. Blood oozed out of the body parts into a puddle of gory mesh. Jonathan started running off, but the officers restrained him. They shoved him in the cop car and drove to the station for questioning.

*#*
O

At the station Jonathan was about as much help as George W. Bush helping at a Drug Prevention Program. He broke down a couple of times too.
At Jonathan's girlfriend's, Jennifer Holme, home Jennifer was devastated. So she mellowed out a little bit and put on some hip hop music. The phone rang and she rolled over on her bed to answer the bedside phone. "Hello!"
"Hello bitch." The other line said mono-tone.
"Who are you?"
"The person behind you with a set of torcher knives, oh and by the way after I rape you and kill you your boyfriend will die like Matt!"
Jennifer enlarged her eyes and dropped the phone. She was all alone in the house. She flung around and saw a man in dark clothes. He had a face that was covered with white face paint. He started groping her and forcing himself on her. She tried to get away but she was over powered. After about an hour of that he took the torcher tools. He cut away at her flesh and started franticly stabbing her in the chest where it would cause pain and not death. He started sobbing and fell on the floor. "No one understands why I'm doing this. My gang isn't crazy!" He cried cuddled on the floor cutting himself. "No one excepted us. No one. Pretty girls like you would tease us, and people like Jonathan never took up a conversation with us," He took a deep breath and burst out again. "I had the biggest crush on you Jennifer. You threw me out like yesterdays garbage if even that much. Matt the same as Jonathan, and the same with Collin. Jonathan survived, but you won't be near as lucky. He darted up after her. She took advantage of her attakers discussion time and threw the trey of sharp tools at him. He fell to the floor and got up as Jennifer ran out the door screaming for help.
At this time Jennifer's mother, Phillis, closed the door of her nice sports sedan. As she neared the door Phillis locked the door with her remote control keys. As she was a foot from the door she tapped the garage door button to close it when she heard the screaming. Knowing the scream she thought What the hell is happening! She burst inside the suberban house. "JENNIFER! JENNIFER WHAT'S WRONG?!" Phillis cried.
The killer pulled a rusty knife from his belt holster. He sneaked outside and through the same door Phillis came in. He tip-toed through the house and spied Phillis with Jennifer weeping in her arms on the stairway. He ran back behind a corner so he wouldn't be seen. Calmly he hid behind a sofa in the living room. Phillis ran to the phone dialing 9-1-1. Even though the murderer loved to inflist pain rather than death he knew he couldn't afford the police coming this soon. He crept up behind Phillis and shoved the knife in her back. Phillis craoked and dropped the phone, then collapsed. Jennifer came in screaming. Jennifer ran through the kitchen and slipped on the wood floor in her socks. "You can't escape me!" The killer said speeding up behind her. Jennifer turned a hard left and jumped though the glass doors to the lawn. Jennifer barely saw her watch. 5:04. Her father should be there soon. She was right he 'should' be there soon! He had to work late and thought that his wife would be home.
Jennifer cut through a patch of flowers to avoid her attacker. Unfortunantly her attcker stopped, which would be good in most cases, but his fellow gang members cought her. She tried to slip away but couldn't. One of the members slapped her and bagged her. He tied the bag and threw her in the back of a truck nearby. The killers jumped in and drove off.
While that was happening Jonathan was cleared. He walked to what had always been Matt and his favorite hang out place. Kindo Tower, a 130 storie building. On the very top Matt and Jonathan could observate Manjur for hours. He went to the top. No one else was up at the observation point. Yet when he was up there he felt Matt's presence. He got on top of the railoing and spread out his arms. He then heard someone's voice. "Are you commiting suicide?" The voice said.
Jonathan swirled around. "Don't you go to school, Manjur High? Ring a bell?"
"Yes Jonathan." The figure walked toward him. The person drew a knife from his pocket. "You won't go there anymore though." The male voice was percistant and Jonathan's eyes widened. The person ran at Jonathan. Cought in a rock and a hardplace Jonathan could do only one thing possible. Jump. He leaped over the railing. As he fell he was scared and becoming sick. He then saw a 50 ft. Fountain and dived in. His attacker some how beat him to the ground though.
When Jonathan rose his head out of the water wading he came face to face with his killer. Jonathan slammed his fist in the murderers face. As the killer collapsed Jonathan got out of the fountain and hit the ground running. He took off not looking back. He was wet and becoming cold. Just his luck it started snowing. He then rolled out on the street when he saw his attacker advancing. He jumped in the cab and passed a twenty to the driver.
"As far away from here as possible!" Jonathan commanded. The driver turned his head and, don't you know it, it was a member of the gang that his killer belonged to. Jonathan opened the door and fell on the street. He then jumped up and ran in a cafe. The warm atmosphere calmed Jonathan, but not enough. He stole a cup of cappichino from a customer and ran out on the sidewalk. People passing by him coldly starred at him.

*#*
O
He came to his house and took the cup of now cold cappichino and put it in the microwave. As he anticipated his attacker was right behin him. Jonathan was about to throw the hot liquid in his attacker's face when his killer interupted. "You wouldn't do that." Jonathan swirled around and looked at the scene the leader was about ten feet away from him and Jennifer was tied up with about seventeen people guarding her.(With some taking advantage of her.) Jonathan ran up to Jennifer, but held back. "No, no, no, Jonathan, Jennifer is going to die and you'll see her die. Along with your mom and Collin. We don't have Collin yet but we are working on it." The Killer smirked.
At Collin's house Collin was downloading Lincoln Park's One Step Closer song on Napster. His mom and dad had left to get some groceries. He sang along with One Step Closer while updating with hard drive. Then he heard creeking. He tilted hishis head, but still looked at his computer monitor and said, "Who's there? J.?"
"Not really." Collin felt a bang to the head and fell on the keyboard. The Pain Gang smashed him in a bag and brought him to the Graffy residence as Jonathan and his enemy spoke.
The gang brought in Jonathan's mom. Jonathan secretly pulled the droar out and took a sharp knife out. He quickly pulled it out. He drew it and pointed it to his advisaries. The light shining in from the window coaght the end of the blade. The reflection shot in the leaders eyes. Squinting, the leader pulled out his rusty knife, threw his hand up and several gang members pounced Jonathan. Yet Jonathan fought them away. Then,. from behind the leader jolted the knife in Jonathan back.
"Bring 'em back to our base, he'll die suffering." The leader commanded then walked outside.
Jonathan sprawled on the ground curling up. He shook and started vommiting and caufing up blood. The red liquid spill out of his wound and dripped to the floor, creating red puddles. Jonathan slowly black out. He had several cutts on his face by now. His eyes were glazed over as he looked onward at his loved ones were being bagged and taken away. The leader walked toward Jonathan for one last time and stepped on the knife. Jonathan made a eerie sound and dropped his head. His white shirt was stained with dark blood, the kind of blood that only comes from the depths of the body. The leader thought Jonathan would die, but would he?
As the gang reached the back door they heard a car coming up in the drive way. The gang pulled out there weapons. The knob turned and the gang hid behind a corner ready to jump. The door opened and they jumped the visitor, little did they know who he or she was. "Get the heck out of my way you freaks!" Sarah, Jonathan's sister, shreaked.
The killers gazed on at the crazy woman and dropped there weapons. The started to take a run for it when... when... Sarah pulled her cell phone out and caled the cops, not knowing what was in the kitchen. "See this guys, this is your future. A prison I'm getting you for..." Sarah stared wide eyed at the scene she saw as she entered the kitchen. Even though her mother and nearly sister-in-law, she saw her dying brother. The killers had bailed taking Annn and Jennifer. Sarah knelt by her brother and cried. She then pulled out her cell phone ounce more and dialed 9-1-1. She cried as she gave information on the crime scene.

The medics carried out Jonathan in a stretcher. The people carrying him thought the next time he'd be carried was in a casket. The police took handprints and interveiwed Sarah and neighboors. Suddenly out of the oven a fireball in about six feet in diameter came surging through the room. Policemen and bystandards jumped to the floor screaming. The oven's door was now halfway across the room along with bodyparts of people way to close. As policemen got on their knees to look at the damage the saw some oxidated knives spelling out "PaIn". The policemen just stood there staring at the odd sight.
Back Collin's house the member bagging Collin was trapped in Collin's room. Collin's parents had come and called up to Collin saying dinner was on the stove. The killer grabbed the monitor of one of several PC's in Collin's room. He didn't know what to do so he took the monitor and slammed it on Collin's forehead concealed in the bag. Hearing the parents running up the cherry stairs. He glanced around the room frantically with addreniline rushing through his veins. He caught a window in his scan. He ran up to it and busted through it. As he hit the ground he spurted around to the street curb.
Collin's parents next suit to be wearing was a black one. Collin had died not of bleeding or anything like that, but because of extreme pain. His mind smothered himself because of the pain. When Collin was found shards of glass from the monitor's screen lay strait up peicing his skull. His ear was chopped off and he was decapitated.
"If he only would have come down earlier!?" Mrs. Honneycutt, Collin's mom, sobbed leaning her head on her husban's breast. Her tears dripped off her face and minggled in the same puddle that her late son's blood flowed into. They immediatly called up the Graffy's, but little did they know the problems going on there.
In the doctor's office Jonathan lied on the hospitol bed looking around. He was hot even when he took the covers off. So he yelled for the nurse to open it. His mind was still reforming from the losage of blood. He didn't remember his mom or Jennifer being kidnapped. His sister was in the waiting room waiting for some good news. Finnaly her phone rang.
"Speak." She answered.
"You know your brother's hospitol room window?" The other line spoke.
Sarah straightened her back and paid attention. "If you kill him you'll die you little son of a bi..."
"Finish that curse word and I'll kill your brother."
"You wouldn't!"
Suddenly Sarah jumped up right down the hall a doctor with a sureon mask on turned off his cell phone right when Sarah heard the cut off o her phone. The doctor smirked at Sarah and headily walked toward her fast. Sarah ran to the outside door on the end of the corridor. And she shoved the door open. What she saw when she looked up was the doctor. The doctor swung his hand around Sarah's face and forced her to the shrubbery outside Jonathan's window. Right now Jonathan slept like a baby, but soon he wouldn't. The killer knocked Sarah unconscience and put her aside. He drew out his gang symbol, of course the rusty knife, and leaped in the room silently. He pointed the dangerous weapon toward Jonathan and was about to slice his belly open like a two-handed swordsman would, but he was interupted. A real doctor pushed open the door. The gangster dived behind an x-ray machine. He hid there for what seemed like hours as the M.D. looked over x-rays of Jonathan.
"Ahaaaaa..." He said over and over. The killer was agrivated so much he jumped out and smuthered the doctor to death. He then started sawing at Jonathan's feet, which woke Jonathan. By now Jonathan remembered everything. He kicked up and splattered the blood in the attackers eyes.
Sarah got up and slumped back down when she saw what was going on through the window seal. She took out her new stun gun she had forgoton before. She stepped in the room. Then, the aimed her stun gun and shocked the killoer literally. She screamed for doctors and the police.
The Pain Gang released Ann, but not Jennifer. They could easily minipulate Ann, but Jennifer had a young strong mind. They kept on rapeing and torchering her until Jonathan would come. Which after two months Jonathan was. Jonathan was depressed from his girlfriends capture. One day he followed his trails from the night of the attack. He walked around and finnaly found what he was looking for, the headquarters. What better place then the old remains of the old electric chair room that was abandened. He had his hunting friend's pistol. He slowly opened the rotting door. He pounced in hearing music he caught light from a laser light show from a door leading to some decaying stairs.
He opened the door and walked down the steps hearing Limp Bizkit, he had to hold in the urge of singing along. He noticed a lot of the people there were from school. He hadn't paid much attention to them, but then again they didn't pay to much attention to him either. The party started to clear and people left through a back door. Jonathan hid between two loose planks in the wall. Then, he heard a meeting of some sort.
He only caught some words. "Kill... Jonathan... Find him... loose!" Then he heard someone get up from a seat that was under a tble because the person occuping it scooted out. Jonathan looked around and found a crack to look through. He saw his girlfriend being taken in, she was tied to a rolling cot. "Hey precious... boyfriend... will die!"
Jonathan peered through the small crack and saw some people leaving. Then the clear leader of the pack left also. After the gang cleared Jonathan swivilled out of his current postion. "Oh! Jonathan they are going to kill you!" Jennifer screamed as she saw Jonathan coming down the stairs.
Jonathan untied her. He then embraced his love as if he were her Knight in Shining Armer. The kissed and then Jonathan heard some running. "They heard us," Jonathan put his gun up to his face. He took Jennifer to the side. of the dark room. "Go outside and call the police!" Jonathan commanded he kissed Jennifer and then she darted out of the hideout.
Jonathan held the gun out in front of him. He started to move toward the sounds of talking and running. He walked slowly to the door he was certain the voices were coming from. He kicked it open and sure enough they were there. The gang paused for a second looking at him. Then, they drew out there knives in unison. "Drop dead dammit!" The leader said dropping his knife and pulling out a revolver. Jonathan noticed that a revolver bullet you'd stay alive for a minute or two with extreme pain. The leader shot at the intruder. Jonathan leaped behind a bar nearby.
Jonathan ducked under the bar, he came up once in a while to shoot the gang. An old western shoot out. Bring it on suckers! Jonathan thought. He took a quick count of the members. Three. He could feal the heat of the bullets shooting at the bar. He jumped up and shot two members leaving the leader. Then he came up for a second to see where his opponent was. The gangster had pulled out a old gatlun gun. Jonathan franticly looked around for an exit. He looked around and noticed a door that the bar reached. Jonathan rolled and tumbled to the door. He opened and shut it not knowing what was on the other side. It was a stainless steel kitchen. The only thing new in the hangout. He noticed the industrial architectural style, but he soon forgot when he saw the leader come in the room. He came up and tried to shoot, yet he was out of bullets.
Luckily he heard the sound of an empty gun coming from the gun of his advisaries. It became a knock down battle. The two swung punches and kicks at each other. Jonathan saw a sink. He hoped it had a garbage disposal. Jonathan lured his enemy toward the sink basin. Yes! Jonathan celabrated in his mind when he saw the disposal switch near the sink.
The leader sung a punch at Jonathan. Jonathan blocked it and grabbed the hand with one arm and turned on the garbage disposal with the other. Jonathan took the killer's hand and shoved it in the disposal mouth. Blood spurted out everywhere. The leader screamed in pain, but soon over powered Jonathan's arm and got out of it. They fought for a grueling fifteen minutes until they both where a bloody mess. Then, the killer put the stove on highlight. He out ran Jonathan and smacked his head with a pie pan. The pan was dented terribly. The killer took Jonathan toward the stove and shoves his face in the fire!
~Oh what will happen next well read on read on!~

(*****************************************)
Before Jonathan's face could become charcoal the killer fell down. The gangster had died of blood losage. Jonathan finnaly heard the police come. After a while the police came in the kitchen. The police stared at the bloody room. Dark blood engulfed every single peice of cooking utinsel. "Ummm... Where is the murderer?" The police asked still amazed at his surroundings.
Jonathan looked down at the dead killer. "Here, but I don't think he'll cause anymore trouble." Jonathan whipped his hands off on each other and walked away.

As Jonathan emerged from the hide out into a dark asphualt world he realized he had winter weather clothes on. Snow fell from the sky. Jennifer ran to Jonathan. Jonathan embraced her. They kissed and kissed for a long time. As police cars and ambulances filled the streets near the building Jonathan had found his love. They walked away from the scene hand-in-hand.
