Umm...about the title i couldn't think of a title for this story so i thought this fit, but anyways its been awhile since I have been here so I couldn't figure out how to post this right so I put it in the intro^^. I hope you like itXD.
“Huh… what’s going on? Where am I?” I said getting up from the ground, feeling a little light headed. “Ahh…” I put my hand to my head. It was pounding like as if I had fallen right on it. If this was a dream then why the heck does my head hurt? Usually you don’t feel any pain and if you hurt yourself you wake up, but for some reason that doesn't seem to be the case here.
I took a look around. I was in a forest, a very dark one. I know forest aren't the sunniest places in the world, but still this forest just didn't seem right,” . It was like this forest had never seen light, like it had forever been in darkness. “Burr…” I was so lost in thought I didn't even realize that it was cold, ice cold, and on top of that what I was wearing. It was a light weight white dress, very pretty but someone might get sick if they wore it in the wrong weather (namely me).
“Well I guess I’m not going to leave or get any answer by thinking and talking to myself. It’s now a time for action.” I was just getting ready to walk when I heard a branch break. I suddenly turned around to find a tall dark figure walking straight toward me. Looking around I looked for the biggest branch I could find. I dove for it as if my life depended on it (which in this case it might). Holding the branch in a ‘ready to attack’ position, I turned to the dark figure and said, “If you don’t want to get the beating of a lifetime from a 15 year old girl with a branch, I suggest you start talking.” I may have been able to say those words but in reality I was scared out of my mind (but I couldn't let him know that). The figure just stared at me for what seemed like hours.
Then finally he broke the silence, “You’re just like they say you are.”
I was a little dumbfounded “What? Who is they?” I asked hoping he would give in to giving me a little more information, but he didn't take the bait.
“You’ll know in due time, but in the time being live life as freely as you can because it could change in an instant.”
“What are you talking about? You’re not making any sense.”
“That’s all you need to know for now.” The dark figure turned around and started to walk away.
“Wait!” I yelled after the figure. “I need to know more, I don’t understand! Please, wait.” I started to chase after the figure but it was already gone, though that didn't stop me. I ran hoping to catch up with him. I was so caught up with finding him that I didn't see the tree stump right in front of me and the hill that followed it. So I ran right into it doing a 360 flip into the air and hitting the ground hard then I started to roll down the hill, braking twigs and destroying grass in my way. I was starting to wonder if I will ever hit the bottom. Though right when I thought it I saw the bottom in a swirling mess. I was scarred, because what lied at the bottom was a huge bushel of thorns. I tried to grab on to something anything that would stop my fall or possible death drop, but nothing worked. I was getting closer and closer to the bush. Then the strangest thing happened. Right before I hit the bottom I woke up in a cold sweat. I was breathing hard but I was still alive. “So it was just a dream after all” I thought to myself. “Thank God.”
That dream left many questions in my head. Questions I knew couldn't be answered by just anybody, but just that one person.
My thoughts were interrupted but my dog Aztec. Who had hoped on my bed and started to lick me
“Oh, Aztec…”I said while petting him “You wouldn't believe the crazy dream I just had, but you probably wouldn't see as how you’re a dog and you can’t speak human.” I then heard my mom calling me from the kitchen.
“Honey, get up its time, or you’ll be late for school!”
“Okay, Mom! I’m coming!” I yelled. “ OK, Aztec, looks like it time for torture high.” I said getting up form bed and going to the closet. It didn't take me long to get ready, maybe about 30 minutes or so, after getting ready I hurried down stairs with Aztec trailing right behind me.
“Sorry mom no time for breakfast…Only a quick snack” I went the cabinets and grab a granola bar, then to the refrigerator to get some Sunny D.
“You know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and your skipping it and instead having junk for a substitute.” She said lying against the kitchen sink with her arms across her chest.
“Yeah, yeah mom, I know that it’s just that I don’t have the time.” I said grabbing my backpack that I had put on the dining room chair the night before.
“You’re going to learn one of these days…Making you’re poor mother slave away to make sure you get a good meal in before you go to school. Then you don’t even eat it.” She said shaking her head. I gave a little sigh at that.
“ Okay, mom, I promise that I’ll eat tomorrow. Okay? But for now I really have to go.” I walked up to her and gave her a peck on the cheek. “See you when I get home.”
“Umm Hmm, whatever.” Is that all she said to me. I gave her a little smile and then walked out the door.
Even though she’s my mother she can act like a kid sometimes, but I love her anyways.
