19. 18: The Window -written 11/20/15

Ella woke up, her face slick with sweat and her heart pounding ferociously. She moved her arms, which felt heavy as lead and crossed them over her chest, hugging herself. 'Its not real." She thought and turned onto her side to look out the window which seemed to haunt her. Vinnie had broken her wrist there.

She turned onto her back and took deep breaths. She wasn’t dead. The forest wasn’t attacking her. No roots were stabbing at her like it had with the other victims. Ella blinked and sat up. The other victims. She shivered, glad that Vinnie was asleep. She was just talking nonsense Ella told herself but a linger feeling remained as she forced herself to go back to sleep. Forests didn’t come alive and kill people, their roots and rocks didn’t team up on someone. That was impossible, but yet the words had slipped out so easily. She buried herself further under the blankets so just her nose and lips were outside, breathing in fresh air. It was just silly nonsense. A dream. She fell back asleep scarily easily.
