Forgetting Forever

For Carissa McVeigh moving was nothing new, she lived her first five years of her life in a suit case - Staying in different hotels and apartments all around Ireland with her dad who was a work addict .
But this was her biggest move yet - from Ireland to America.
What would her new life bring?


7. Dad.

I woke up in my bed, the air smelling like coffee. I turned onto my side and facing me was Lex, sleeping. She looked so young and angel-like when she was sleeping, her hair forming a halo around her head on the pillow. I suppose she was dead, which is pretty close to an angel. Or maybe she wasn't an angel, maybe she was the opposite – a demon. She didn't look anything like one though, so I doubt it – but something in the back of my head told me not to trust her fully. I had no reason to anyway – but I'll go with it.

While I was thinking I didn't realise that she was staring right back at me, wide awake. "oh, good morning" I blurted out. She giggled and got out of the bed. She stretched out on her tip-toes with her arms in the air. She was wearing the same ballet outfit as yesterday, without the shoes and this one was light blue. I noticed a large slash down the side on the leotard where her ribs are and through the slash I could see some black marks, it was writing.. but she finished stretching before I could read it. I got out of bed and walked downstairs to find dad in the kitchen. "Dad!" I squealed, "Honey" he replied giving me a tight hug, "I'm so sorry, but I have to go to work! Breakfast is on the table though – OH and I told out next-door neighbours you'd call over and introduce yourself today, don't forget!" he said kissing my forehead and then rushing out the door. "Bye" I said quietly sighing. I sat down at the table and I drank my ready made coffee – I liked it black but dad had put milk and sugar into it. He never did remember that. Lex sat across the table from me with the ' Confused puppy' look on her face again. "Don't you eat, dead girl?" I asked her. Her mouth opened to a small O shape, then she shook her head.
