4. This Is Reality... My Reality.

It's been two days since the attack from the "Man" in the girl bathroom at shcool, somehow the blood was gone the next day... I am now at work which is 'Waffle House' because they were the only people that would hire me. I'm under age but they saw the reason why I need a job. In my small home it's just me and my Dad, my mom she passed away... The insadent happened about 7 years ago when I was 8, I'm not exactly sure what happened but she was murdered, at least that's what we think. Theres was also my older brother, Joshua... But he was killed just a few months ago... No one knows the cause. No one knows why. he was killed along with a few other men. I still cry myself to sleep.
Hayley came with me to work today so we could have another "Talk" about what happened. She sat in one of the small booths, it had red and yellow seats just like all the others, I'm a waiter here so I have a lot of moving around to do, but today we were lucky its a slow day. I dried my hands on my aprin because they were wet from holding cold drinks. I decided to being a hot chocole with creamy delicious white whipped cream on top, Hayley's favorite. I walked over to Hayley, I smiled, then layed the drink on the table and sat down across from her.
"Thanks" said Hayley smiling at the drink "it's just what I needed"
I laughed and placed my hands on the table "it's been two whole days and nothing has happened..." I said quietly "what do you think?"
She looked at me as if I was crazy "what do you mean 'what do I think'?" she said after she took a sip of her drink "it was your dream not mine"
"I know" I said looking down at my hands "I wish it wasn't though"
She looked at me and opened her mouth to speak by was untutored by my boss telling me to get back to work. "I'll be back in a few minutes" I said swinging my legs out from under the table then i jumper up. Right as I got up the bell rang and a boy about my age with a blue and white hoodie and plain jeans with blue vans walked through the door. He had deep melted chocolate colored hair an deep green eyes. He came up to the counter and sat down.
"Hi" I said pulling out my note pad and pen "would you like to start with something to drink?"
He looked up at me and smiled, his smile was so perfect and amazing it made me want to melt like a marsh mellow in hot chocolate.
"yeah" he said looking down at his menu "I'll have hot chocolate with wipped cream on top"
"alrighty" I said writing it down on the note pad "I'll be right back"
I walked over to the brown creamy hot chocolate cup that was already made 'that's weird... I don't remember making another cup' I said to myself as I picked it up and looked at it. I shrugged it off and sprayed the wipped cream on top of the hot drink. I looked over at Hayley who was tapping her fingers on the table to the tune of 'Memory' by Mayday Parade. I smiled and walked back to the buy who was waiting for his hot chocolate patiently while he looked through the menu.
"Here you go" I said layin the the hot cup on the table in front of him "are you ready to order or do you need a minute?"
"I think I'm ready" he said with a small chuckle "I'll have a waffle and a hash brown"
I smiled and nodded "do you want me take the menu?" I asked pointing to the menu in his hands.
"yeah" he said handing the menu to me "Thanks"
I nodded and took it from his hands then I walked to the cook and gave her the order. I then walked to Hayley and sat down.
"do you think we imagined it?" she asked at me with her big blue eyes.
"I thought about that..." I said looking at my bandged hands, then I moved them to her face "but I have the wounds to prove it was true..."
She frowned "I forgot about that..." she said looking down at her hands "how's are your hands doing?"
"they don't hurt as much anymore" I said placing my hands on my lap.
"orders ready!" yelled the cook, she had red hair an dark blue eyes, her name is Jennifer but everyone calls her Jenn.
"coming!" I said standing up, I smiled at Hayley one more time and started walking back to the food.
"I think I'm gonna go" said Hayley standing up "here's the money for the drink"
"oh, no its fine" I said shooing her hand with the money in it away.
"you need this money more then I do" she said smiling and walking over to me "now take it" I smiled and have her a big hug "I'll talk to you later"
I waved and she walked out the glass door. I walked to the now warn food, I picked it up and walked over to the guy again.
"sorry, I was just-" but I couldn't finish my sentence he interrupted me.
"it's no problem don't worry about it" I smiled and nodded.
"here's your food" I said placing the two plates on the table "enjoy"
I walked to the back door of the diner, I looked up at the clock 7:42 I get off at 8:00. 'almost time to head home' I said to myself. Outside It was already really dark, even though it's late November it's still darker then usual. Again I heard the tiny bell ring indicating someone either entered or left. I looked over and the guy was gone and the money was left on the course. I looked around, there wasn't anyone else here either, not even Jenn.
"Jenn?" I said walking to the employe room. Right before I walked into the room I saw something shine outside. I slowly walked to the front door, I couldn't see anything so I walked outside and looked around, I shivered a little from the cold air, but I also shivered from the feeling someone was watching me. I turned around and there I saw the same crooked yellow teeth, the same black hair that fell into his eyes, the same black jacket and black pants, the same evil dark brown almost black eyes, the same silver knife in his disgusting hand, the same "Man" that attacked us... The same evil smile broke apon his face again.
"This Shall Be Your End" his deep creepy voice pierced through me almost like a knife only the wounds he put in me won't make me bleed, at least they aren't yet.
I took two steps towards the door to the diner, but some how in those short seconds the man was only two steps away from me. I wanted so bad to scream out for help, but I'm sure I would be dead in the blink of an eye. The man slowly inched towards me with the knife in his dirty hand. I heard my mind telling me to run but my feet wouldn't listen. It was as if my feet were nailed to the ground. He kept inching toward me... But I still wouldn't move. He was about six inches away from my frozen body, he lifted the knife and smiled, he then jerked his hand towards me, but again something shined in front of my eyes, the knife was bent and on the ground like before... I looked at the man his eyes were wide open and his mouth also open with his blood dripping out. His knees gave away and he fell to the ground, then he disappeared when I processed everything that happened I saw the figure again only this time I could see it, and it was a he, and he was... The boy from earlier in the diner... He was holding a long sword stained with the mans blood.
"come with me" he said holdin out his perfect hand "he's not dead yet, your still not safe"
I was still in shock from everything that just happened.. But somehow I was able to life my hand and place it carefully in his. He gripped my han and started running it was hard running at the same speed, I almost fell many times. As we ran I noticed the blood from the man that was on the sword was gone. I gave up, my legs couldn't hold me anymore, I fell to the grass we were Running through. He turned around and without hesitation piked me up and put me on his back. For some reason I began to get dizzy and I passed out on the boys back.

The next morning, Friday, I woke up at 7:37. I jumped out of bed and hurried to my closet. I found my jeans, my shirt, my shoes and my hoodie. I quickly change an brushed my teeth. My Dad was already gone 'no ride from Dad today' I said to myself. I quickly grabbed my bag and a peach and ran as fast as I could to the bus stop. 7:46 I got ther and everyone was just getting on. I ran on the bus and found Haykey. I plopped down next to her and gave her a smile. Finally when I could think again I thought of last night... 'was that boy real?... I don't have proof this time...' I shook my head of the thought 'it wasn't real, just a dream' and I left it at that. I just liked out the window and watched the world pass by me.

Finally the yellow bus pulled up to our school and we all jumped off. When Hayley and I made it inside we ran to our lockers. I got my books and ran to my first class. When I walked in there were only two other people in the room sitting in their seats. I walked to my seat, sat down and just looked out the window. The whole 6 minutes until the teacher walkin in I was convincing myself that what happened last night wasn't real.
"class we have a new student" he said standing in front of his desk. 'a new student? Now?' the person walked in and stood next to Mr. Dawn... This was the person I didn't want to see... It was 'him' "This is Colton Shay"
