The Voodoo Doll
It was supposed to be a simple tattoo that she got one night, but she really didn't realize just how strong this voodoo doll was. It was a real one, placed right on her leg, like she could use it to feel pain in her body if she wanted. That was not an option that she took very often, unless she just needed to come back to reality.
But the tattoo itself had a life of its own too. If she thought hard enough of one person and would put a fingernail on a body part, well they would feel it. The only problem was that she could not control it at all. There were times in the middle of the night that she would dream about something, and someone would get hurt.
She knew the only way to live with this on her skin was to figure out how to focus it on only bad people. It was a dumb plan maybe, but at least it was an idea that would hopefully save her family and friends from anymore pain.
Taking the hint off of Dexter, she decided in a way to let the voodoo doll help her bring the wrong people to justice. Well at least that is what she had hoped to do when she started out with her plan. Her first picture was of some little known thief around town he had not only tried to rob a local bar, but had actually beat up one of the girls who worked there pretty badly.
Thankfully she didn't have a picture of those injuries, because looking back now, well maybe it would have been better to know right up front. But she didn't know yet just how wrong this type of magic could be, and why she should have never gotten the mark on her skin.
It went good for quite some time, she was helping, but she was the only one who really knew much about the tattoo. As far as others knew those pains and aches they had felt in the past, were just a flu or a quick virus, if they even remembered it.
But one night it all came to an end, and badly. She had been gone to the store for a bit and was on her way home. Thinking of who would be the next to focus on with the doll and it's powers.
When she walked in needless to say she was shocked by what she saw, the house was a mess. Someone had tossed everything around, it was really weird, but knowing that she should be quite, she tried to do her best Ninja moves.
Quietly coming around the corner, she saw a sight that she really didn't want to see, it was of her three kids. They were tied to chairs with gags on, and well they looked a bit bad for the wear. Like they had tried to run from the two gunman and hadn't quite made it.
Immediately she felt great anger come over her, not fear, but anger at the gunman having hurt her kids in any way. It was then that the voodoo doll did one heck of a job on them quickly.
It came to life, right in front of her kids and her, standing about 2 feet high, using the pins as its weapons. The doll began to slice up the two robbers, before they even had a chance to fire a gun or say anything.
Needless to say now when mom wants something the kids do it really quickly.
