NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET: INNOCENT DEMON

Chapter II:  "Déjà Vu"

REVISED EDITION
Written by Abri Isgrig and Diane N. Tran


"You, me, alone," grinned Freddy sinfully, laying out his easy charm unmitigatedly thick, like marmalade, while he curled his tongue under her ear.  "Spread eagle between the Babies Alive and the Barbie Dream Houses.  Faces lit.  Bodies entwined.  Our screams echoing across the halls.  Whattaya say?"

"Tempting," Loretta forced back a moan, attempting to pull away before she did something she would really regret.  "But the answer's no."

"Loooorretta," her name was drawn from his lips in a slow, low murmur, as his hand slithered under her dress and teased at her skin, watching her squirm and shiver with a throaty chuckle.  "Do you really mean no?  Cause you know what?  I can hear," his fingers cupped between her legs and curled, causing her to cry out, "and I can tell that you really wanna say yes."

"I said no and I meant no!" and she slapped his hand away, hard, which caused him yelp and rub his injured hand.  She winced at the sound of his pain and looked up at him with a pair of sad, puppyish eyes.  "I—I'm sorry, sweetie, but you didn't leave me much of a choice.  It's just that I don't want to risk anything.  Either of our jobs, or the baby."

Freddy grimaced at her and emitted an irritable growl just behind his throat, as he stood up, pushing his hands in his pockets, in defeat:  "Looks like I'll have to go one-handed for the next seven months, huh?"

She couldn't help but scoff.  As if her condition was her fault!  "You brought it on yourself, Frederick Charles Krueger," she waved an admonishing finger at him, like she would with one of her students.  "When it comes to sex, you tend to get...  Well, uh..."

He offered with a lopsided smile and a shrug.  "Overenthusiastic?"

"I'd go for dominant, but alright."

He couldn't help but raise a thick eyebrow and secret smile at that.

Sex wasn't a normally gentle with them.  Loretta had a small, delicate frame, more girly than womanly, and Freddy had an affinity for rough sex.  His ego demanded it.  She often had to wear high collars to hide the various hickeys and teeth prints, or long sleeves to cover the burn marks on her wrists whenever he tied her up, and her hips and legs were regularly imprinted with bruises.  But there was something she always did find odd about him.

Although he enjoyed the habitual hand and blowjob, he, unlike other men, hated her on top.  He preferred being the controller rather than the controlee.  When she did attempt to ride him, his mood would suddenly deflate and he'd shove her off him in objection, only to have him push her down and pounce himself on top of her.  Loretta could beg and plead, but she had to ask his permission first and foremost; even then, it was rare if he allowed it at all.

As they left the building and locked the door behind them, a streak of white over Freddy's shoulder suddenly caught her eye.

"Oh, afternoon, Sister," greeted Loretta.

He froze and paled when turned and saw Sister Mary Helena, clothed in her all-white habit with large cross dangling on a black cord around her neck, warmth radiating from her smile.  A pair of blue, soothing eyes revealed a certain youthful beauty that hid beneath the cruel, aging lines upon her face.

That was another thing Loretta found odd.  Freddy was not a religious man by any means — he considered himself a sinner of the first degree — and never acted pious around any other member of the clergy he came into contact with, except for Sister Mary Helena.  There was just something about the woman that spooked him and she never fully understood why.

"H—hullo, Sister," Krueger muttered, removing his hat and crossing himself.

"Afternoon, Frederick," greeted the nun, patting Freddy kindly on the shoulder.  "You look well."

"I—I've got some... stuff... errands to run before I—uh, we go home, honey," he said, talking rapidly, running his words together, as he tugged on his faded, black trenchcoat and perched his grimy fedora over his eyes.  "Gotta get to the hardware store before it closes and get some take-out for lunch—I mean, dinner!  I'll be in the car," with that he bolted out of the conversation towards the parked vehicle, as though his life depended on it.

"Has Frederick always been so jumpy?" inquired the holy woman.

"I'd like to apologize, Sister," Loretta replied with a sympathetic smile.  "He's often told me that he feels very uncomfortable around you."

"Oh?" the nun's voice elevated slightly in surprise.  "Why is that?"

"Not exactly sure why.  I think he said that there's just something about you, something in your face, like he knows you from somewhere, but he can't seem to place it."

"I... knew his mother."

"Freddy never talks about his family, particularly his foster family.  He did once mention something about a nickname he was called as a kid.  What was it...?  Son of—," the schoolteacher tapped her chin thoughtfully.  "Son of a hundred or thousand something or another?  Whenever I ask him about it, he goes quiet.  Anyway, what brings you here?"

"Well, I had recently heard that you and your husband are expecting," Mary Helena's soft hands tenderly cupped her face.  "But I can see that already.  Loretta, my child, you're positively glowing."

"Word travels fast in Springwood," she smiled with a blush in her cheeks, resting her hands upon her belly.  "We only found out a few days ago ourselves."

"Almighty and most merciful God in Heaven, in His infinite goodness and wisdom, has blessed with a new child.  There's no greater moment when a parent learns of the gift the Lord has given them.  I know you and Frederick will cherish this child, watch over it, and provide for all its wants of body and soul, just as you have for each other.  I am happy for the both of you."

The nun's tone suddenly became serious and continued: "However, I know that pregnancy may be difficult and frightening at times, but it is a spiritual experience that will test you to your limits, like no other.  It is the ultimate journey of transformation and discovery.  Push aside your inadequacies, fears, and self-doubts.  Take the opportunity to prepare your mind, body, and spirit for this new life."

"Thank you, Sister, for the advice," interjected Loretta.  "I will take them to heart."

"I would like to be there for you and Frederick.  And, if you are interested, I myself am a midwife, and can offer guidance and perspective."

"Thank you for your offer, Sister.  I will consider it when I get farther along."

"That's all I asked," the nun nodded in understanding with a smile.  "And what of your classes?"

"Good.  I graduate this winter, but I'll be the size of a whale by the time I wear my cap and gown."

Sister Mary Helena chuckled.  "You'll look beautiful.  I should take my leave from you now.  And tell Frederick that his mother says hello."

Krueger watched his wife and the nun part ways from afar, safe in the sanctity of his truck, and tapped his nails impatiently along the steering wheel.  He felt like an idiot for allowing some stupid church-broad get under his skin.  He had a strong urge to rip the seats underneath him and chuck them at her.  There was something about her, something about her eyes, like looking into a mirror, that unnerved him.  He needed to calm the fuck down.

He scrabbled at the hatch to the glove compartment of his truck, pulling out a flask.  He unscrewed the cap and took a lengthy swig of whiskey, feeling the alcohol burn his stomach, warm his cheeks, and slowly milk into his bloodstream.

What was it about that nun that bothered him so?  Why did she seem so familiar?  He'd only met her four years ago and yet he avoided her every chance he got.  For some reason, after every encounter with her, he was suddenly struck with the childhood memory of being taunted:
    SON OF A HUNDRED MANIACS!  SON OF A HUNDRED MANIACS!  SON OF A—!
"Freddy?"

The gardener choked in surprise, hastily hid the flask in his coat when he saw Loretta.  He gasped and hacked, as the whiskey went down the wrong tube and snorted into his sinuses.

"Were you drinking?"

"Ack—nuh—hack—no, honey...," Freddy coughed.  "I'm fine."

"Are you sure you're okay?  Because—"

"Goddammit, you stupid fuckin' bitch, didn't you understand a fuckin' word I said?!  Why the hell won't you trust me when I say I'm all right?!" snarled Freddy, his voice bitter, slamming his fist against the horn.  Suddenly, he caught the look his wife's hurt, angry stare fixed upon him and quickly understood he'd lost his temper again.  It was one of the major issues of their marriage.  "I—I'm sorry, Loretta," staring down at his hands in guilt.  "I didn't mean to... to snap at you, like that."

Something told him that he'd be sleeping on the couch tonight.

Sister Mary Helena (Amanda Krueger), of Dream Warriors, Dream Child, and Dream Master, makes her first appearance in this chapter and will return in following ones. The original line was originally "between the Tickle Me Elmo and the Barbie Dream House," but we had to change it because that toy didn't appear until 1997 and this would be 1991. I changed Elmo to Popples — a fat, colourful marsupial-like plush with round cheeks, heart-shaped ears, and pom-pom tails that you could stuff into a pouch on its back, like a giant furball, and then pop the animal back out — was a toy craze near the late-1980s, which later spawned a cartoon series; I remember the toy had a lot of innuendos when I was young, particularly noticeable when you hear the commercial and the theme song for the cartoon. However, Popples, I feel, are a very obscure reference because it is a toy of its time. Barbie Dream House, on the other hand, is immortalized through many generations, so I needed a toy that did the same: Enter Baby Alive, elbowing the several different kinds of innuendo.

We'd also like to give a special shout-out to ~weapon13WhiteFang for being our Grammar Nazi. Have a Happy Halloween, everyone!

We did our best to keep everything in-character as possible to the reboot and, if you read the artist's comments, we did our best to to keep everything well researched as well, changing things only for the purpose to expand the universe or to take it into a new, fresher direction.

Honestly, I find it rather amusing that you find Chapter II "disturbing" because it's one of the tamest chapters. It just gets darker and darker as the chapters from here on end. I'm interested to see how you take on Chapter III, V, and VI go.

I can see that. It's pretty "normal" talk for a married couple, but there is a lace of "perversion" to it and I'm glad you noticed that. Because it's done on purpose. Nothing I write is flippant or insignificant, because every word, every sentence, every definition, every paragraph, every indention, has at least three and five different purposes/reasons behind it. I labour intensively at each of these words to make them clear and comprehensible, yet emotional, symbolic, allegoric, metaphoric, subtle and/or obvious, really just certain conviction and depth behind them. I actually toothpicked little red flags throughout this entire story. I know for a fact that some people have not noticed them, but others have, and the reason why they're there is show they have ALWAYS been there:

With our conversation about how Englund's Freddy, remember how I said that pedophiliac subtext of him were ALWAYS there, but they subtle enough to be glossed over the first time, but then you might notice them the second time, or third time you watch the film, but essentially they were ALWAYS there. This reflects aspects of real life: Pedophiles/serial killers live among us, you can laugh with them, talk to them, they have all the appearance of normalcy, and then it's revealed what they have done, you wonder how you were fooled. How did they fool you? Then you look back, you notice little red flags that clued you in, little clues that were a little...OFF in their behaviour. You brushed them off, but they were little warning signs in which you ignored and glossed over, and the frightening question is: Why didn't I notice them before? Why didn't I do something before? And if I knew what I know now, could I have prevented this from happening? And that's a very REAL reaction to REAL life.

Hmmm good good. A very nice next chapter. Yet I can't bevive I'm gotta say this I was surprised when I saw the words blowjob, and f**k. But really I haven't read any chpaters in a while. But yes this is good as it seems. And from what I learned in the info below and first comment. Nice idea you guys are adding characters from the classic series.

Another yeah I guess was just surprised at this well indeed. Sorry if I say too much of any words. But a good chapter. Mostly I have learned Fred or shall I say Freddy has temper problems. On the crouch heh heh.

Thanks! For the most part, I wanted to bring a poetry to the story, but it's not a "clean" kind of poetry. It's a REALISTIC form of language; it's very matter-of-fact, even blunt, at times then twists into flowery and elegant at times, but it always keeps you guessing. It's matches to how suspicious and direct Freddy can be, to the point of being blatantly offensive and downright politically incorrect at times, and yet how he evangelizes other things, pastoralizing them, over-idealizing them. Freddy does this to very, very specific things and specific persons he encounters. I did this specifically to lace everything with a cruel but subtle irony, things that makes you arch an eyebrow because these are things "normal" people don't generally perceive in that manner. None of these words are flippant. They are chosen for significant reasons.

Admittedly, I don't make my Freddy swear enough. Of course, JEH's Freddy didn't swear much. He really doesn't need to. You can say so much more without four-letter words. The sex scene in Chapter III isn't graphic whatsoever. I never really describe the act itself. I don't say "And he slipped his cock inside and fucked her her brains out." That never worked for me and it will never work for me. Because what you don't "see" distrubs one more than what you don't "see." I'm not going to "show" it, describe it, but I allude to it: I use metaphoric imaginary and interaction, I describe reactions and sensations, but I'm not going to romanticize or idealize it either. I simply say what needs to be said and the imagination supplies the rest. The words are chosen with extreme care. My intention is not to gross out the reader by using words like "cock" or "cunt" or "fuck" that leave a foul taste in your mouth, I'm not going to use scientific description as if I'm dissecting a frog either. My goal is play everything out almost like a romantic dialogue, like playing a romantic lead for a romantic film, and that's more unsettling and disturbing that way, I feel. This becomes clear when I travels down the pedophiliac road. It's all about choosing the right words.

My Freddy just swears so much because it is one of the signs he is about to go off. Admittedly, he's ready to go off all the time. I try to avoid too much description in my own sex scenes, just giving enough for readers to draw back in horror. I don't think I use the words for body parts, but I expect readers to know what phrase like 'inside me' mean.

I wouldn't even go that far, but for some reason he has to be that repellant. I do not want readers loving him. That way they feel rather sorry for Elizabeth since she CAN love him. He's still my romatic lead, just a very messed up, foul-mouthed one. Mine thinks swearing gives him power. I don't know why, he just does.

I always got the sense of Freddy being a greaser in the right era, stuck in his hostile teen years forever, so maybe it is that. I think his stepfather swore, and so unwillingly he adopted the habit, because the man had power over him for so long. Dang Alice Copper and his fine acting skills, LOL!

Englund-Freddy is a bit of a greaser, yes. It makes sense. He was a rebellious kind of youth. One of things that bugged me about the scene with Alice Cooper is that here's a HUGE different between what is a sadist and what is a masochist. Oftentimes, they don't run together: Some sadists, while they love cutting others, cannot stand getting cut themselves. Some masochist, while they enjoy cutting themselves, are intolerant of the thought of cutting others. Then there are others that swing both ways. I always found that fascinating.

I met Alice Cooper at a horror convention. Sweet man. Shook his hand. Wanted to play with his hair, but thought it best not to ask that. :XD:

I don't think Freddy likes the pain, he just learned to embrace it because that broke his stepdad's power. If you like something, or can learn to embrace enduring it as a strength, it robs it of its power. My Elizabeth does it too. Most people would scream if cut, anyone would. But she learns to embrace the pain not as a masochist, but to show how tough she is.

You are so lucky! He seems like a total sweetheart.

I always sneer that the scene because the psychology is completely "off" to me. But I like your analogy of it. That makes that sneer turn into more of a blank frown. I'm sadden that your Elizabeth goes through so much, as understandable and logical as it is. I assume her reaction is like "It's a cut. It will heal. There are far deeper cuts, not all of them involve a knife." (starts singing Cat Steven's "The First Cut Is The Deepest")

He is a complete sweetheart! He's a teddy bear! Very squishable! Just like Robert Englund!

Robert Englund is an ADORKABLE man! I've met him several times. He talked to be for 15 minutes and the line got upset with me. Like I cared, I just swatted down and grinned from ear to ear, listening to him prattle off about my favourite role of his, which incidently isn't Freddy, but Erik Destler of 1989 PHANTOM OF THE OPERA. It's amazing how he went from dork (with his ever adorkable nerdy looks) to studmuffin (BAM! PREGNANT!) overnight!
