I sit up in bed.
"Mom?" I whisper into the darkness of a seemingly empty room.
"Are you there?" I bite my lip and get out of bed. Maybe I'm just imagining things. I walk out of my room into the hallway.
"Hello?" I whisper. "Anyone out here?" Suddenly I hear a huge bang. I run down stairs and into the kitchen, where I see a large figure, coveted in black, slitting the throat of a child. When I scream, the man looks over, and I see the man has my dead fathers face. I look at the ground, where the child is lying, an the child is me. I scream again and try to run, but my feet are glued to the floor.
"Help! Help me!" I scream as the floor turns into a large pit and I plunge into darkness. When I hit the ground, it was covered in a slimy material, that seemed to be moving. A light flickers on somewhere, and I realize I sitting a pit of worms and maggots. I scream and recoil disgust.
"Bella! Bella wake up!" Someone yells in my ear. I open my eyes.
"Th-the maggots and w-worms and dad and kn-knife!" I stutter.
"It was a nightmare. Shhhh." My older sister Katarina whispers soothingly in my ear.
"Bu-but it felt so real..." I close my eyes and remember the dream.
"It's ok. Your ok." She smiles as I start to calm down.
"Thanks Kat." I sit up and stretch.
"No problem little sis." She laughs and gives me a hug. I hug back and then get out of bed.
"I'm going to get dressed." I grab a shirt and jeans out of my dresser and start to change. 10 minutes later, I run downstairs into kitchen, and shudder when i recall dream. I sit down at the table and my mom turns to me, face serious.
"There has been a murder."
