My head was being clubbed. At least that's what it felt like. A rhythmic throb of pair reverberated in my skull, deafening from within, like a beating war drum. I cracked my heavy eyelids open, my eyes adjusting. I waited till all the blurry lines took shape as my eyes absorbed what little light there was around me. Where was I? I sniffed the air, trying to get a clue of where I might be. I snorted as the sharp tang of metal stung my nose. What was that? Rust?... Blood?
I weakly pressed my palm against the floor, almost flinching as my returning senses took it in. Cold, coarse...damp. I shuddered at the thought of lying in a pool of my blood. Or even worse — someone else's. I could finally make out a wall of vertical bars, rust flaking off them. On the other side was a tattered tarp, ridden with holes, draped over it When the throbbing stopped I started to hear whispering, all I could make out was "kill... torture... lie...", I tried to stand but collapsed. I started to crawl to the bars and peered through a hole. There was nothing. I ran my hands through my fur and then covered my eyes "This isn't happening Eloc. Its nothing I'm just hearing stuff its nothing."
A dark, husky laugh whispered, coming from everywhere and nowhere, as smile in its voice, 'Are you sure?'
I jumped, throwing my back against one side of the cage, making the metal rattle, heightened senses zeroing in on the voice. The voice laughed, guttural and malicious, making my heard speed up with rising panic. My heart threatened to stop, my gut twisting, as I met the amused gaze of an anthro wolf perched above me. I could make out its dark fur, matted with what could only be dried blood. Its sharp claws drummed against the cage, bits and pieces of rotting flesh visibly stuck to it. Strings of degenerating muscle hanging off it like noodles. The smell of it made my nose wrinkle, but not as badly as the surrounding sting of rust. The wolf grinned widely, presenting a row of yellowed teeth, saliva dripping out of it's mouth as it cocked its head to the side at a disturbing angle.
'About time you woke up.' It commented casually.
I stuttered, trying to find my voice, 'Wh- who...a-a-are you?'
The wolf chuckled, as if I just cracked a joke, 'you are me, and I am you. Silly boy.'
'What does that mean?'
'It means I am you...and you are me.'
'That makes no sense.'
'But that is what I mean.'
'What are you talking about? And what are you doing here.'
'I am here to help you.'
'Because you are me. And if I help you, I help me. See what I mean?'
Before I could say anything else I heard some movement outside. I turned around and looked out the hole to see a tall man in a torn trench coat with a cowboy hat approaching a panel of some sorts. He scratched his chin as his hand hovered over the panel. I tried to say something, but all that came out was a small moan, I think he heard me because he raised his hand to silence me. He flicked something which made the cage roll to the side, as soon as it opened the man ran off. I stumbled out of the cage into a metal room full of pipes, computers, and surgical equipment, I looked behind me and saw that the wolf disappeared. I stretched a bit and took a step. Three big burly men in gas masks came bursting in with only knives and pistols and then one spoke.
"Get this prick back into his cage before he runs of."
One of them started to approached me. I felt a burning sensation at the back of my head and felt a pit of bloody rage forming in my stomach. Suddenly I saw this blinding light, I felt this pain in my thighs, but I couldn't look down. I couldn't move anything like I was just watching something, I felt something piercing my back and this time I looked back to see one of the men that burst into the room sticking multiple needles into me filled with this strange violet liquid. He didn't really appreciate me moving and gave me a swift back hand. He said "Don't make me use the shock!"
I spat at him to receive what felt like a metal brick to my gut. I looked around to see a metallic hand retreating into the shadows. I heard someone say "Do it."
I heard this loud thud and a engine starting up. I suddenly felt electricity coursing through my body, I looked down to see these metal rods sticking out of my thighs, I tried to reach down but my hands were bond, the next thing I saw was this club coming down to strike my chest. When it hit I was out of the vision and the guy that gave me the back hand was right in front of me, I grabbed his skull, my claws digging into his flesh. I grabbed his shoulder and started to pull. I could hear his screams of agony that gave me this strange pleasure. I tried to close my eyes to try and stop that disgusting pleasure, but the cracking of his bones and tearing of his flesh made even more enjoyable. I opened my eyes just in time to see his head finally tearing off. I noticed his friend pulling out his gun, I picked up the corpse and used it as a shield as I charged at him. He fired some shots that the body absorbed, I dropped the body and tackled him, he fell to the ground and I got on top of him and started punching, sometimes even plunging my claws into his stomach. I heard the anthro wolf from some where saying "Kill everyone. Burn everyone. Destroy everything. Kill the sick. Kill the weak. Kill the innocent. Kill the accused. Kill everyone that has hurt you. Kill them. Kill them all!"
As I ripped his throat out, I noticed that the third one ran for it. I grabbed a knife off one of the dead bodies that was gushing crimson blood and ran after him "I'm going to kill you son of a bitch" I said over and over again in a hysterical voice.
The guy trips and starts crawling away as he says"Please don't kill me. Please!"
But before I could plunge the knife into his skull a gun fires, startling me and the guy drops dead. I looked around to find the person that killed the man and it was the same man in the trench coat. He said "Come with me if you want to live."
