July 2016) - BANG - Oliver

((trigger warning: suicide/self-harm))

whirrrr. chi-click.

Various laughs and concerned whispers reach his ears, cutting through the tasteless red haze blanketing his senses. He forces a smile and shrugs, attempting to feign some semblence of normalcy despite the rage boiling underneath his skin and leeching out into the cold night air through bared teeth.

It doesn't matter. They can't die. Not really.

Click.

Fear. That's what this is all about. So why can't he feel any?

whirrrr. chi-click.

He stalks the woods, a ravenous beast with only one prey on its mind, one it can't seem to find. The boss speaks, and he can feel the rage heighten through his entire being, an instinctual rebellion against acting under someone else's orders, but there is nothing he can do about that now.

Growls catch in his throat with nowhere to go. His new boss, his allies... they're off limits, but damn it, he needs to kill something! Where the hell is Bastion?!

Click.

This boiling hatred... if he can't find a target to unleash it against, he'll just have to make one.

whirrrr. chi-click.

BANG!

The ringing reverberates through his head, but the expected pain does not follow, only the warmth of blood on cold-numbed skin. He wakes up a few moments later, no trace of the wound left in the wake of this strange revival.

Who knew dying could be so boring? Another round was in order.

whirrrr. chi-click.

He adjusts his aim this time. This one needed to be satisfying.

Click.

whirrrr. chi-click.

Click.

whirrrr. chi-click.

BANG!


This time, a single second feels like a lifetime, an indescribable pain overwhelming him before all goes black and he wakes once more. There's no wound there, but the pain had scorched his mind so severely that simply recalling it is nearly unbearable. He trembles where he lays, feeling sick.

Feeling something besides anger. His desperate need for violent rebellion has finally subsided, at least for the time being.

There's just one more thing he needs to know.

whirrrr. chi-click.

He levels the gun at his head one more time, and he feels his heart race. His hand trembles ever so slightly as he faces down the chance that he would experience that horrific death once more.

A laugh bubbles up in his throat, and a genuine grin spreads across his face. He's absolutely, completely terrified. The fog is gone.

Click.

whirrrr. chi-click.

BANG!
