I woke up to something softly scratching my face. When I opened my eyes I saw D rubbing his fingers on my cheek. I jerked away, but D managed to keep his finger at the same spot on my face and continued to rub. I tried to get up, but D told me to lay back down and relax. He smiled and kissed me on my cheek. I tried to get up again but he pressed my ear up to his mouth and whispered, “I don’t want you to die. Well not yet at least. Everything you see in the Lust circle will want you to dive into sexual activities. They will want you to fail so that you can die, but remember my face. Remember my kiss, and use it to keep you away from failing. I have a much better plan with you.”
He walked out and closed the door. For the next couple of minutes I sat in the darkness. The sound of snoring surrounded me, but it was somewhat soothing for me to hear. It made me feel like I was back at home. The illusion was shattered when D burst through the door and turned on the lights. Seven other groggy people started to sit up. D snapped his fingers and three people walked into the door. They had a leopard, lion, and a wolf mask on. They carried in huge dishes filled with bacon, eggs, and toast. We started to walk up to the people, but they put their hands up and dumped all of the food on the ground and left with the plates.
D laughed and said, “Well don’t just stand there. I’m sure you’re hungry. You have 10 minutes and then we will go to the first circle. I started grabbing bacon and toast that were on the top and shoveled the food in my mouth. The rest started to pick up pieces of bacon and a little bit of eggs. Malcolm was last to grab the food and was left with the rest of the eggs.
D clapped his hands and told us it had been 10 minutes. He motioned with his hand for us to stand up and all of us except Malcolm stood up. He was grabbing at his stomach and wincing in pain. I walked over to him and helped him to his feet. I asked him if he was alright; he nodded and pulled away from me. D started walking out of the room and we followed him.
After about 2 to 3 minutes of walking D opened a door to our right and walked up to a boat floating on a narrow but long pool. The pool seemed to be never-ending. It stretched down far past where my eyes could see. We all climbed in and took a seat. When I looked around to find a seat D tapped on the seat next to him. I took the seat and D pointed into the water. He whispered, “It’s red right now because we have colored it that way, but one day it will be filled with blood.” He turned around and stood up. With a grin on his face he said, “When we are on the boat you do not call me D. If you call me D I will throw you off the boat and watch you drown. Call me Charon. I am here to transport you to the lust circle and the rest of the circles as well. When I get off of the boat you can call me D. Hell, you can even call me Dom. Understood?”
We all muttered yes and he pointed forward. The boat started to move on its own and turned left or right with a flick of D’s wrists. After a boat ride that lasted for less than 10 minutes D pointed down and the boat came to a stop in front of a door. He turned to look at all of us and giggled. With excitement flowing through every word he exclaimed, “This is the first circle guys! Hop off the boat. I told you last night, but I’ll tell you again. Don’t fall for temptation. You show lust in your actions I will make sure you die. Don’t grab anything that isn’t yours. Ready? Ok. Let’s go!” He hopped off the boat and we followed him to the door. He opened it up and motioned us to go in.
The walls, floor, and ceiling were all a solid black. There were around 10 cameras all around the room. I was confused about what the challenge was but walked into the room. Alex and Kristy went to the opposite corners trying to avoid each other at all costs. Andreas, Malcolm, and Jeremiah stood in the middle. Gus and Jeremy stood near the doorway. I walked up to Andreas, Malcolm, and Jeremiah and stood with them. Malcolm was telling Jeremiah that he had a sore stomach, but Jeremiah just put up his hand and told him to stay completely still. I looked at Malcolm and saw that he had started to sweat. His pupils were triple the size as normal, and his breath was starting to get deep and long.
A bell rang from outside and around 50 people started to pour into the room. The lights turned off and a soft single light took its place. A deep base filled the room and slowly progressed into a wonderful song that brought out every molecule of sexual desire out of me. They surrounded us and started to rub all over our bodies. I tried to get away from them, but fell into another group. The bell rang once more and they stripped themselves naked. While they were taking their clothes off I ran to the far right corner of the room and crouched down as low as I could. I looked around the room and saw that everyone else was trying to avoid being touched.
Everyone except Malcolm.
Malcolm was in the process of grinding against a woman. A naked man walked up behind him and started to kiss him on the neck. A loud groan came out of Malcolm and the bell rang once more. The two people immediately stepped away from Malcolm and stared him down.
D opened the door and threw a duffel bag into the room. Gus ran towards the bag but the other people blocked his way and the rest opened the bag and they each took out a knife. Malcolm was oblivious to it all. He was still dancing along to the low alluring bass as the people gathered around him. Right as Malcolm opened his eyes they jumped on top of him and he became invisible. Within 10 seconds they got up and 8 people ran out of the room carrying the remains of his body.
Before they got out of the door Gus took a good look at what Malcolm looked like. When they exited the door he looked up at us with a smile on his face.
I got up and started to walk out the door, but the bell rang again and the people started surrounding us once more.
This time they started whispering to us. A couple of women walked up to me and started to tell me everything they loved about my body. They talked about all of the nasty shit they would do to me. Every time I felt any type of urge my mind automatically bounced to how it felt having D rub his finger on my cheek. That is what saved my life. After a while of failing to seduce me they started to put their knives all around my body. One woman put her knife on my neck and whispered, “I’ll kill you right now if you don’t fuck me right now.” I tried to think of a response, but I didn’t need to.
The bell rang once more and I looked around the room.
Gus was covered in Malcolm’s blood with desire flowing from his eyes. He was halfway out of his pants when he noticed everyone staring at him. He started to scream, “No, No, Ple-“.
They were on him like they were on Malcolm. I looked away from the scene until I heard D’s voice.
“Good job everyone. This concludes today.”
We took the boat back and we are back in Limbo.
They gave us spaghetti and bread for dinner but no one had much of an appetite.
Today is over.
3 down 5 to go.
