Why can't I be left alone??

Cara ran through the door just as it started to close. Panting, she sat in her seat. She hoped that they wouldn't do anything too dangerous. Cara and danger was probably the worst combination imaginable.

The professor lifted a cage on top of his desk.

"Ewwwwwww" Cara muttered. That creature had green skin! What kind of creature was it?

She barely heard what it's name was before it cackled. The sound trapped her, entranced her. She just wanted to hear it forever. Some part of her brain resisted the call. Snap out of it! If this Erkling can do this to you, it must be dangerous!

She was barely aware of the professor telling the class about Erklings. She was barely eleven and she had to wait until she was thirteen for the effects to wear off?

"Come play!" Ooohhhhh! Play!!!! She stood up and started towards the front of the classroom. She wanted to play! The professor started speaking again. Cara realized that listening to him talk made the effects of the Erkling fade a bit.

She sat down and got really scared. Erklings ate kids? Was the professor joking? There was no way that he would be allowed to bring something that dangerous in! Or maybe he was. Or maybe he snuck it in. All Cara wanted to do was run screaming from the room!

As soon as the practice started, Cara started walking towards the Erkling. She started feeling less scared. There was nothing this Erkling wanted to do except for having fun! She shook her head. She was under its spell. She had to find someone to be her bodyguard. Sure, the Erklings probably didn't eat kids but you never know. Plus, even if it didn't eat kids, there was no telling what it did.

She wandered over to an older student, constaintly fighting the Erkling's lure.

"Can you protect me from the Erkling? Please? It's really hard to resist!"that was probably the best she could do. There was no way to force someone to do something, that would be mean and embarrassing. She hoped the person would say yes.
