In the remote village of Dedham a old myth about a man hanging himself on a tree in unusual circumstances is popular amongst the village. On Halloween 1902, Alice and her friend Alexis are late to the church, they see a shadow thinking it's just an adult running home to get something. But was it? Strange things happen and it seems as the myth is playing out in front of them. Will this kill them bboth? or not.....

21. Hospitalised

The safe security that death, which is what I thought that I had slipped quickly but quite shakily into, was slowly slipping away from my desperate grasp. A grasp which was to be broken so I could live. I was in a deep slumber and I was to awake soon, very soon. Although what seemed to me a peaceful way to live, I wanted to be able to get out of this enclosure of blackness. Black and absolutely bleak. Nothing to do, but relaxed enough that I did not want to do anything.

Slowly, my weak watery eyes began to open. I began to see the light world which in my deep slumber I had begun to miss. The weightless feeling had now left me and a scratchy duvet had been carefully laid over my placid body. What seemed to be water blocked my vision but I could just made out a blurry figure seated on the other side of the room. As the water began to evaporate, the figure made itself known to me by speaking in a cautious voice. Immediently , I knew who it was. It stood up, walked to , what seemed to be the left side of the room, and peeped out of the door, before speaking.

"She's awake. Could I have a nurse to check if she is alright?" My father asked , in what seemed to be a whispering tone.

I smiled because I knew he was probably here everyday , waiting for me to wake up from what is more commonly known as a coma. But I thought of it as just a very deep slumber ; one so I could wake up many months later.

"Yes of course, a nurse will be with you very shortly," a woman replies, before from what appears that she says next that she turns as a nurse who probably just walks past "the young girl in room 8 has just awoken from her coma. Could you possibly get the necessary medicines that she needs?"

As these calming words were spoken, my vision was clear. My fathers face now completely visible : lines under his eyes, black crescents decorated them too.

"Dad?" My voice harsh and crackling : my mouth lacking with moisture.
