2. Just A Dream...

My eyes opened and I jumped up from my bed, tears streamed down my face, I've been having the same dream for... I cant remember how long. But I know it's been over a year. I got out of my bed and walked out of my room slowly starting to walk to the bathroom across the hall, I kept thinking of the dream and how the boy always came when the knife had already pierced my body and I was so close to be completely dead. Why didn't he get there before that so I didn't need to go through all the torture? I walked into my completely white bathroom and thought of the white room. I looked at myself through the mirror and who, no what I saw didn't look like me... My eyes were red and puffy from crying, my hair was going everywhere, my skin was a light color like an ashy white. I frowned at my reflection and splashed my face with cold water. Then I took everything off and jumped into the shower, I let the warm water completely over come my body, after awhile I washed my body and hair. When I was finished I hopped out and grabbed a towel. I finished drying off and put my white jeans and checkered purple and black shirt on. I looked around my room for my purple and black hat and my black and white checkered high-tops, after awhile I decided to stop looking for a little. I then grabbed my bag with all my books in it then I started walking down stairs and when I took the last of the steps on the stairs I saw my Hat an Shoes on the floor near the couch in the family room. I picked them up and put my hat on the back part of my head and slipped my high-tops on not bothering to tie them. Then I walked into the kitchen and saw my Dad eating breakfast.

"Hey Dad," I said walking over to him and giving him a hug "weren't you supposed I be at work over an hour ago?"

"I have off today" he said after he swallowed his eggs, I nodded and looked at the clock, 7:25 I'm supposes to be at the bus stop at 7:45

"I can drive you today" I smiled and opened the cabinets and looked for some good food to eat

"Thanks" I said as I pulled out a box of fruit loops. I opened the fridge and pulled out 2% milk and poored it into my bowl of fruit loops. I started eating when I felt my phone in my back pocket vibrate, so I took it out and looked at the screen.

Hayley: Hey! So when are you gonna get to the bus stop? I've been waiting for like 5minutes!

I decided not to reply and just tell her when I got to school. I finished my bowl an walked to the stairs and looked at my Dad who was at the door swinging the keys around his finger

"I'll be right back," I said smiling at him and walking up a few stairs "I have to brush my teeth" I walked to the bathroom and took my tooth brush out and put tooth paste on it. I then began to brush my teeth. As I was finishing up my last brushes on my teeth I saw something I wish I didn't... I saw the man behind me in the mirror, with the knife already with blood on it then I looked at my stomach and there was blood... I turned around and he was gone and do was the blood on my stomach. 'I'm just being paranoid' I thought to myself. I stopped brushing and washed my mouth an the toothbrush then ran down stairs got my stuff off the couch and ran to the door where my Dad was still waiting

"thank you Dad" I said smiling and hugging my Dad "for driving me today" He smiled and hugged back

"Your Welcome," he said pointing out the door to the car "now get in the car or you'll be late" I ran to the passigers side and waited for my Dad to unlock the car door, when he finally did I jumped into the car and picked up the cord to plug my IPhone in so I can listen to music, when my Dad finally turned the car on I put my music on and the first song I listened to was by Mayday Parade.


We only live about 15 minutes away from the school and it was 7:40 so I would be 5 minutes early, not that bad, I think Hayley will be there by then. The car ride was pretty quiet besides my music, me and my Dad didn't really talk the way there, when we finally got to the school Hayley's bus just pulled up. I looked over to my Dad and smiled

"Thank you Dad," I said giving him a hug for the third time today "it means a lot"

"alright I'll see you when you get home" he said hugging me back "have a nice day" I opened the door and shut it slowly then turned around and saw Hayley running towards me 'Here come the questions' I said to myself. As soon as she got over to me she practically jumped on me. "Carter!" she yelled shaking me by my shoulders

"why weren't you on the bus!?"

"my Dad has off today and he wanted to drive me" I said shrugging my shoulders "no big deal"

"is to!" she yelled shaking me again "I was waiting and waiting for you for so long! I thought you weren't comin' to school! Why didn't you answer my text?"

"okay to many questions" I said walking past her and to the entrance to the school "you coming or what?" She sighed and ran over to me and we both waked into the school together, when we were a few feet from my locker I stopped dead in my tracks... The man... From the dream... He was at my locker... With the same knife but he didn't have blood on it... he's going to come after me...

"Carter?" asked Hayley snapping her fingers in front of my face "Carter, you look like you've seen a ghost or something" I shook my head and closed my eyes an when I opened them again the man was gone. 'This never happened to me before so why now?' I asked myself.

"Carter?!" yelled Hayley pinching my arm "wake up!"

"ow!" I yelled rubbing my arm where she pinched me "that hurt!"

"good" she said walking away and over to her locker which was about 10 lockers away from mine "I was hoping it would" I laughed and walked over to my locker, did the code an opened my locker door, I grabbed the few things I would need for the first class. Then I closed the door. I walked over to Hayley who was still getting her things.

"Hayley?" I asked leaning against another locker next to hers "have you ever had... Uh... Never mind" She looked up from her backpack and had a purple pencil in her mouth which already had teeth marks in it.

"What?" she asked after she took the pencil out I her mouth "had any what?"

"never mind," I said again walking around Hayley to the other side of her "just forget it"

"ugh!" she sighed and went back to looking through her backpack and locker "you never make any sense" I sighed an walked away starting towards my first class. I looked at the clock out side the door of the room 8:06 so there were 9 minutes till class started. 'I don't think there will be anyone here this early' I said to myself. But I was incorrect. There was a boy with dirty blonde hair and bright blue eyes sitting on a desk and looking out the window. I started walking towards him, not because I was wanting to talk to him but because he was sitting on MY desk. I cleared my throat when I was by the side of the desk

"excuse me" I said looking at the boy "your sitting on my desk" He looked at me and I almost felt like I was going to fall, his eyes were locked with mine.

"so your Carter?" he asked in a deep voice, I nodded "be ready" I gave him a confused look and he got up from my desk.

"I'm not sure what your talking about..." I said sitting in my seat He looked at me again and this time when I looked into his eyes they were blood red, I remembered seeing the man at my locker... And behind me in the mirror.. 'Why Is This Happening To Me!' He chuckled and said once again "Be Ready" and then he disappeared... Into thin air. Maybe I was just imagining him. I laid my arms on my desk and laid my head in them face down so my vision would be completely dark. After about 5 minutes of deciding on, what I saw had been real or not, I felt someone touch my shoulder.

"Carter?" said my teacher Mr. Dawn. His glasses were sliding down on his nose, so he pushed them back into place "are you alright?"

"yes" I said nodding my head "I'm fine" He nodded and walked up to his desk and right as he sat down a few other students entered the room and took there seats.


At 8:15 the bell rang indicating that class had begun. I sat through the 45 minutes of class not exactly listening to Mr. Dawn, but mostly thinking of the boy with dirty blonde hair sitting on my desk, and the man appearing at my locker and behind me in the mirror. This stuff had never happened before... These crazy hallucinations I've been having... They're all new to me. As soon as the bell rang I got up, collected my books, grabbed my bag and headed out the door with the other students following close behind.

"Carter!" yelled Hayley from one of the tables in the cafeteria "over here" I walked silently over to the table that my best friend was sitting at with my tray of food. We don't sit with over people much... It's mostly just the two of us. I sat down next to Hayley and looked at my knife. When I first looked at it, it was completely clean but now it was stained with blood... I quickly picked it up an dropped in onto the floor, my hand was cut as the knife fell from my hand.

"Carter!" yelled Hayley standing up and putting a napkin in my bloody hand "go to the bathroom and clean it! Or it'll get infected" I couldn't move... I wanted to. But I just couldn't move anything in my body. I began to shake. Hayley grabbed my arm and pulled my out of the cafeteria and into the girls bathroom.

"Carter?" she said putting my hand over the sink and turning the cold water on. "are you okay?" I nodded slightly. But I wasn't okay. These hallucinations are starting to be to much go me. I can't take much more. I feel like the next time I have one I'm going to brake down crying. I looked up at the mirror and saw something I know I would always, and forever regret seeing... The man walked out from one of the stalls... He brought the knife up slowly but wasn't going to plunge it into my shaking body. But into Hayley's.
