This is a bit graphic, but I think it went pretty well. I had a bunch of torture suggestions so I couldn't fit all of them in here. I wanted to get to the X-men part as soon as possible, so I had him unconscious during alot of the tortures, but they will be mentioned later when he is wondering what they did. This is 918 words and 2 pages. Enjoy!

Dimension Crosser

Chapter 3

I came to when I felt a searing pain in my chest. A muffled scream escaped my mouth as my eyes shot open. I looked down to see my mother with a scalpel in hand cutting from my left shoulder diagonally across my chest. I bit my lip to tear myself away from the pain of the blade running through my skin. My eyes rolled back in my head as she reached the center of my chest and stopped. She moved the blade to my right shoulder and pierced the skin and started cutting diagonally the other way.

I tried to scream, but realized that I had a piece of cloth shoved in my mouth. I clenched down on it as the cuts connected. She switched the direction of the blade to go straight down and started cutting towards my abdomen. My eyes started getting blurry and filled with tears of pain. Blood gushed from the cuts, but not as much as it would have in my human form.

I heard someone talking, but couldn't make out what they were saying. The cutting stopped right above my naval. I felt myself fade in and out of consciousness at the flaps of skin were pulled back to reveal my internal organs. I saw black on the sides of my vision and felt myself grow numb as a hand shifted through my organs examining each and every one of them. I couldn't hold out much longer I was going to pass out from the pain. I saw my mother; no, I can't call her that anymore. I saw Maddie holding my stomach in her hands and then I blacked out.

I felt a shock go through my body and I jolted awake.

"You will stay awake during this, Ghost," Maddie spat in my face. I blinked my eyes open and looked down at my chest, it was stitched back up. I only got a glimpse around the room, noticing I had been moved, before a cloth was placed over my face. My sore heart started beating faster, causing a pain in my chest, as I anticipated what was going to happen to me. I saw a shadow come across my vision before water poured down on my head snapping it back. I closed my mouth as the water made its way into my nose and down into my voice box and through my trachea. I gagged as I was drowning by my mother's hand.

The water started burning as it ran into my mouth as well, when I gasped for a breath. I felt my lungs fill before it finally stopped. I coughed and gasped for air. Water spouted out of my mouth, but just came back in when it hit the cloth. I swallowed the water and then gasped in air before the pouring water returned. I gasped for air, but all that came in was water. My nostrils stung and my throat was sore. My lungs felt like they were about to burst from being so full of water.

I started to fade out of consciousness, but a jolt of electricity coursed through me bringing my on full alert as the water flow stopped. The cloth was taken across my face and I could only see blobs. I was sat up by a strong hand; my head lolled back before another hand took it and held it up. The hand on my back struck my spine hard causing me to spew a bunch of water out of my mouth.

I gasped in air grateful for its cold touch in my throat and lungs. I was picked up and moved back to the examination table. I was splayed out on its cold surface. My breathing was in quick bursts. Maddie walked up to me and pulled my face towards hers.

"Where is my son? He disappeared when you were captured! You MUST be responsible. Give me my son!"

"I-I," I tried to talk, but could barely get anything out. "I mmm year soown." My voice came out drawled.

"You liar! My son is not a ghost!"

"Year rayet ayem naw a ghewst ayem ay alf ghewst," I said while my head was spinning and begging for oxygen.

"There is no such thing as a half ghost!"

"Awahhh, bawt ayt ays."

My body gave out on me and I changed back into my human form in a flash of light. Maddie and Jack gasped as they saw me bruised, cut and broken. I was about to pass out, but I had some energy restored when I changed back. I took a deep breath and unleashed a weak ghostly wail. My parents were pushed back as green sound waves escaped my mouth. I shut it off quickly before swinging my legs over the edge of the table.

I stood shakily before making my way over to the specter speeder, hitting a button to open the portal on my way. My knees gave a couple times and I had to lean on the tables and walls for support. When I got in the speeder I hooked myself in before starting it up. My arms and legs were sore, probably from unknown tortures that were put upon me in my sleep. The speeder rose above the ground and then raced into the portal.

I led it through the green air and past many of the purple doors before finally making it to the place I wanted to: Clockwork's Tower.

I hope you liked it :)
