Holder of Earnesty

Alright guys, here's my attempt to continue the 'Holder's' Series. It's my first humble story entry. I'd appreciate feedbacks from you guys.

I've just informed the original author, but yet to receive his reply. Meanwhil

"The Holder of Earnesty"
In any city, in any country, go to any orphanage you can get yourself to. When you reach the front desk, ask to visit someone who calls himself "The Holder of Earnesty."
The smiling and ever helpful face before this would turn into a state full of graveness and seriousness. She would try to revert to her initial smiling face, but will be unable to. Keep insisting to be taken to that person.

She would give in should you be persistent enough.
Leading you to a dark hallway amidst the orphanage, you will hear a series of laughter, innocent at first. As you walk further down the hallway, the laughter gets louder, almost maniacal as you reach the wooden door at the end of it.

The lady would give a look undescribable by words, but you can tell from the frowns on her face begging you to leave the place with her.
You would want to, but to turn away now will render your journey so far pointless and regrettable, as the five items you have previously found would turn on you, unleashing all the pain they have caused unto the individuals that they had until you've found them.

Only this time you're the focus of all the five.

The lady would insert the key into the key hole, all at once the maddening laughter stops. IMMEDIATELY question out loud "Why the sudden earnesty?" The laughter will continue from where it left off, again the insanity ringing in your ears.
Should you failed to ask the question, you will face pain like you never known before, so much so you'd think scratching out your eyes is a feeble attempt to hurt you.

The lady will leave you. You're on your own. Turn the key, and enter through the open door. The sight before you makes you wonder if you've come to the wrong place. Unlike the previous 5 rooms where it's somewhat horrific, this room is filled with innocently crayon drawn pictures, colourful wallpapers. In the middle, sits an innocently looking 5 year old boy. The ambience makes you want to break a smile. On the right side of his shirt is a Mr Smiley button badge.

DON'T. Keep an earnest face for all you can. For failure to do so will be most regrettable.

The boy will look at you through his innocent face, and attempt an innocent smile. He will show you his newly drawn picture, of him sitting on your lap and laughing gently.
Should you stumble and break a smile, you will know pain like you never thought it would be. Not pain through suffering, but pain through the inability to stop laughing. You will laugh out loud, your throat begins to sore, your stomach begins to burn, your back begins to ache. The moisture gets drained from your very body. your stomach will be ruptured and turned inside out. Tears will run down your eyes. The boy, remaining ever innocent looking, asks you "Why you cry?" And the cycle begins all over again, until the next adventurer comes along.

Instead, ask "Why the earnesty?" and the boy will turn into a demonic image. The drawings and colours of the room morphs into hellish images, of fires and devils. Maniacal laughters once again fills the room. The temptation to look into the demon's eyes is strong, but DON'T. Focus on the button badge. Focus of all the happy thoughts you can muster, for the demon shall feed nightmares and horrifice experience into your mind.

Should u succumb to the feedings of the demon, you will experience the pain of inability to stop crying. Tears will flow from your eyes, to a point when it's so dry, blood will flow along as well. Your throat will sore and burn from endless wailings. At the end of it, you'll be merged with the soul of the demon, awaiting your release until the next adventurer comes along.

Should you succeed, the colours will return to the room, and a baby laughter will be heard. The boy vanishes, leaving behind the button badge.

That is object 6 of 538.
