Authors Note: I based this off a strange dream I had, which probably wasn't a great idea to start with, and I hardly ever write horror stuff, but I decided to give it a shot. If you see anything, let me know!
I guess the day began normal. I mean, other than the excitement of my cousins coming, it was a pretty average day. We went to the park, messed around a bit, then grabbed some food. I still remember the day vividly, down to the amount of chicken nuggets in my happy meal. Four.
When they finally got to our house, it wasn't normal. They weren't normal. To formal, to indifferent, to robotic. The only one who acted even a hint like themselves was Ben. But there was still something odd. Something malicious about him. I remember their being an strange redness about his eyes, and when you met them, you wanted to drop down to your knees, and beg mercy. Which, obviously, got us all suspicious, even if the strangeness of everyone else wasn't questioned.
I remember being almost relieved when they were about to leave. I had questioned them several times, but I always got the same, odd answer.
"Things are as they should be." They said, unblinking, before walking away.
But before they left, when we did the group hug we always do before we leave, I met Bens eyes. They glowed redder, and redder, I couldn't look away.
Those red eyes were the last things I remember.
