In Your Eyes... Chapter FiveI was in front of my house again, the flames reaching high in the sky. So is this where I would go when I died? Into the flames of my burning house? No, I was meant to be here. This was only a dream, like all my other dreams. I wasn't a little girl anymore. I wasn't scared.
I took a step toward my house. I didn't feel the heat of the flames, but coldness. I walked in through the front door and the flames went down. That's when I saw myself as a little girl run through the hallway. I was smiling and laughing. Then a boy came out from a door and followed her, chasing her through the house.
"You're not gonna catch me, Eric!" She giggled and ran through another room. I followed her and watched her hid under the kitchen table.
"I'm gonna get you Sam!" He came through the door and stood right beside me. He had short brown hair that was somewhat spikey and bright green eyes. He looked about sixteen at the time. I appeared to be only five. He was muscular, most likely worked out. "You have to
In Your Eyes... Chapter FourI wanted to believe that Jordan understood why I did the things I did, but I knew he didn't. In his eyes, I'd betrayed him. He didn't want to look at me or talk to me after that. I understood why, so I stayed away from him, trying to make him feel better. But all it reminded me off was my past and how I'd a banded him once before.
"Don't worry about him," Tim said while we were making dinner, "he's always been stubborn, ever since he was a child. He got that side from his mother." I continued to roll the dough until it was flat.
"Hey Tim, you've never told me about your wife." He let out a soft sigh and put the knife he was using down.
"Lora and I never got married because we couldn't afford it. But we lived a full twenty years together. When she was thirty-six, she gave birth to Jordan. She loved him with all of her heart." He got quiet for a moment and then continued. "When Jordan was ten months old, we got attacked by a Shadow Creature. I had been at the market, getting dinner
In Your Eyes... Chapter ThreeI watched as the blood went down the drain. It wasn't the color of red, but the color of darkness. We had a name for what attacked our house this evening. Tim called them 'Shadow Creatures', because they only attacked at night and looked like shadows. Most people didn't even know they existed. When one was found they would try to take it in for studying. But the bodies would turn back into their human form and then into dust.
The warm water felt nice against my skin. Yet, it burned also. My past hadn't left me unscarred. I'd found out that I'd been hurt in that fire. I hadn't been burned, but injured. In the hospital, I'd found out that the monster had slashed my side. They told me I should have been dead, that those three claw marks should have killed me, but they didn't.
They went across my stomach, starting at the top of my ribs and heading down in a diagonal. Whenever I touched them, they burned, like they were on fire. I hadn't showed anyone these scars but Tim. He'd been so kind
In Your Eyes... Chapter TwoI dreamt of fire that night.
Things took a minute to adjust when I woke up. Everything was blurry and I felt terrible. Is that what over doing it feels like? I guess it was worth it, but the dream I had wasn't. That dream always came to me when I got close to Jordan; always.
"You screamed in your sleep." I figured he'd be in here with me.
"I had a bad dream." I couldn't look at him. He always looked so sad after he heard my screams. I never knew how I sounded; I just assumed it was terrible.
"You always have bad dreams." I sighed and sat up. He was in the corner of the room. I had a single chair there and he always sat in it at times like this.
"Everyone has bad dreams, Jordan." He sighed and the chair creaked as he leaned forward.
"Hot everyone screams like you do." I got up and headed for the door.
"I'm not having this conversation again." He grabbed my wrist before I could open the door.
"Why don't you just tell me what you dream about Sam? You always hide it from me " I didn't
In Your Eyes... Chapter One"You're pushing it, Sam." He starred at me with those red eyes. His hands on each side of my face, making sure I wouldn't leave.
"I told you I wouldn't have it this week." A sigh came from across the room.
"Leave her alone, Jordan." He grunted and pushed away from the wall.
"She didn't bring me any blood, again." I rolled my eyes at him and leaned against the wall.
"I never agreed to this in the first place." Jordan turned toward me, a smirk on his face.
"Stop bringing me blood and I'll be forced to use yours." I laughed at him and pushed away from the wall.
"Why don't you just slit my wrists and hang me up in the kitchen." He chuckled and smirked.
"Don't test me Sam." I took on a serious tone and face.
"I'm not Jordan. I'm asking." His hand was around my throat, not tight, but holding me there. "Do it. I know you want to." He tightened a little, but then let go, walking away. Tim sighed and walked over to me. He had a sad look on his face. A look he always had when Jordan and I fought
In Your Eyes... PrologueThe small building burned in front of me. I didn't know why or how I'd gotten here, but I was. I could hear the sirens in the distance, coming closer with each passing moment. I stood there and waited. Something had brought me here, but what? What was I supposed to see?
"Can you hear me?" I looked beside me. A police man was next to me, his hand gently on my shoulder. "Are you alright? This woman saw you wonder out of the house, did you get burned?" I turned toward the house.
I'd come from there? So that's why I was here. "I don't know." That's all I could say to him, because I honestly didn't know. I didn't remember walking from that house. The only memory I had was of the me standing in front of this house, staring into the flames.
"This nice lady is going to take care of you, alright?" I was suddenly being picked up and carried away. But before she closed the doors to the ambulance, I heard its scream. Its red eyes stared into mine. It was holding someone in its hands; covered in bl
What Would You Do?It seemed that this day just couldn't get any worse. First off, I was stranded in the desert. I'd never really been good with directions. Second off, the only water near by was being guarded by a Red Dragon, yeah, a dragon. I tried waiting for him to leave, but my attempts to sneak by him just seemed to end up badly.
Ever been chased by a dragon? Not fun. Especially when you have to watch out for his tail. I'm sure it can pack a punch. So, I kept my distance. I knew I wasn't going to last much longer with out any water. So I had to hurry up with a plan to get by him.
What made the situation worse, was how we just slurping up water, drink by drink. Which tried my patients and made it hard to concentrate. So, I turned away from him, not paying attention. I contemplated using magic, but I was too weak to even think about any spells.
The heat wasn't helping me either. I was sweating and the only thing I had to keep cool was the shade my shirt provided, which wasn't a lot. I took a look bac
Falling ApartWe can't keep going on this way,
We're slowly falling apart at the seams,
The life we live isn't getting better,
We're just drowning in the darkness,
I tried to reach out to you,
But all I grasped was cold air,
I've tried to hard for you,
But in the end it's not enough,
All I wanted was some peace,
And I started another war,
Now we hold up our guns,
And fire at will,
I just want to fall into the abyss,
This isn't the life I asked for,
I'm not trying to fight with you,
I just wanted a happily ever after,
It seems like this love isn't lasting,
The thread that holds us together,
Is slowly withering away,
And I can hear it breaking,
I don't have an answer,
To all of you're questions,
Please just take me for who I am,
And don't wish for something else,
I'm trying day by day,
To make this love something more,
I want this to last,
And I want to stand by you,
I'm afraid that you're going to go away,
So far away from me that I won't,
Be able to reach out for you,
So far away I won't be able to
Keep in Touch!
