A woman sits at a bar at night. She is trying to keep to herself and is obviously not feeling one hundred percent. A television is running a news report on missing persons as it hangs precariously from the ceiling above the wall of crystal spirits. A larger man with a beard gets up the courage to make his way closer to the woman.
"ahem." He clears his throat and leans on the bar, the smell of a smokestack mixed with sewage permeates the air.
"You look awfully lonely over here by yourself darlin', mind some company?"
She barely moves to glance at the man, tensing up more and making no effort to look at the beast.
"No, thank you."
"You having a rough night? I can take care o anyone who's messin' with ya."
"No, please. I just want to be left alone."
Her hands are visibly shaking and are stained with something the brute can't make out.
"Hey now honey, let me buy you a drink, calm those hands down. Then maybe we go lay somewhere."
Her head jerks a little to reveal more of her face. Cuts and physical wounds line every inch of her skin.
"I said no."
The man notices the wounds even if just for a fleeing moment.
"Darlin, someone hurtin' you?"
"Darlin' if someone is..." He touches her arm.
"Don't....touch...me..." Something drips from her and onto the counter, she begins breathing harder.
The man takes a moment. "What the hell.....look, darlin', let me get you out of here."
She throws one arm back and cuts the man with her fingers. He yells and stumbles back clutching his wrist as blood pours out around his fingers. She quickly gets off the stool, knocking it to the floor so loudly it grabs the attention of everyone in the room.
"I said don't touch me!!"
Her face is now in full view and reveals that she is in worse shape than previously seen. Her eyes are black and parts of her skin appear to be splitting.
"Jesus Christ lady, what the hell is wrong with you?!"
She grabs her stomach in pain, almost doubling over.
"I don't know, make it stop...please!"
The man staggers backwards and other patrons are horrified. He tries to reach the bartender. "Hey, call an ambulance or the cops or somethin'"
The TV continues to broadcast the news of the abductions and various bodies found in the area. The woman looks up at the monitor, eyes pained.
"Mazie....oh Mazie.."Then she stares back at the others, eyes starting to bleed. "They took her...they took her!!"
She screams, clawing at her eyes and runs out of the front door into the rain and down the alley next door. Knocking over trash cans and stumbling down the alley blindly and in increasing pain.
A shadowy figure leans over the rooftop looking downward, a pair of goggles over their eyes as information is taken.
The woman falls to the ground on her knees, scratching and bleeding, making angry noises mixed with crying.
There is a splash behind her as another younger girl lands from higher up above, she walks cautiously towards her.
"She's gone....they took her and used me to.....aghhh."
She bends over in pain, gripping her stomach.
"Make it stop...the pain.....I can't!"
"I can help you, just tell me everything, is it your stomach? Were you beaten up?"
The woman turns to face her, eyes completely blacked out, bleeding and clothes torn to show her stomach covered in stitches.
The younger girl clasps her hands over her mouth in horror.
"Oh my god...Let's get you to the hospital"
"No.....it's too late...I ...oh god.....no!!"
She bends completely backward and her stomach starts to tear open, blood sprays and she slumps over dead.
The younger girl carefully steps closer to examine the woman.
"Oh man, that's a new one. What the hell happened to her."
She examines the eyes and the now exposed stomach.
"Ew...well I'm no surgeon but this doesn't look right at all."
The organs look like they were pieced together from other mammals with some looking half hazardly fused together. She pulls her goggles over her eyes and scans the inside. Various information pops up for each organ along with residue analysis.
Sirens begin to make their way closer.
"I don't know who did this to you but they are one messed up individual." She takes a sample of the liquid from the body and with the police lights now highlighting up the alley closer, she takes off into the shadows above.
