She looked at me with those cold piercing black eyes. "I keep my secrets for myself, how could you!" she cried. Ok, ok, maybe I could reason with her, perhaps stall while I find a way to get out.
"I'm sorry, I had no idea that you did not want me to read it. The paper was just laying there. Rest assure that I do not know any of your secrets, its just a poem," I said, struggling to keep my voice steady.
Her teeth flashed, once she moved I cringed. However, she did something unexpected, she actually took a step back towards the kitchen. "My secrets are for me and my friends! No one understands us! No one but me and my friends!" she screamed.
I decided to try my best to be as calm as possible. If my neighbors could hear her screaming, perhaps that would give them a reason to come inspect. "I am your friend, its me your babysitter," I said gently. I decided not to speak to her like a child, I don't know what she is, but she is definitely not a child.
"Do you really believe that I don't know who you are! I am getting tired of humans, don't speak to me as if I am one of them. I have been trying for 500 years to get inside the world of the living, and now I come into the flesh as this!" she cried. She looked at her hands in disbelief and began turning them back and forth.
Slowly she looked up at me. "Why am I still a little girl? I did not come into the world of the living to be in a small body of a child!" she cried.
"I don't understand," I responded honestly.
"Why didn't I wake up the next morning as a woman?" she asked, the light of the sun reflected into the dark orbs, that were her eyes. "Humans take time to grow, it takes years," I explained in almost a whisper.
She fell down on her knees and began to whimper. I was honestly so confused, if I made a run for it, it might provoke her, but if I eased my way towards the door maybe it would not be that bad. She looked up and walked back into the living room. I banged all my weight against the window. "Help! Help!" I cried. "Come on, break you son of a bitch!" I cried.
She grinned. "My friends won't let you out," she said.
