4. Mrs. Codggins

I was walking down the sidewalk from the bus stop that afternoon while one thing was going through my mind, what the heck did that dream mean ? It couldn't have been real, could it ? Oh well, I guess it didn't matter. I mean, it was just a dream right ?

As I walked up to my house I pulled my key from my bag, getting ready to unlock the door and walk in. As I pulled my key out of my bag a note fell out. I bent down, picked it up and read it. There in his sloppy cursive handwriting, dad left a note. 

Dear Erieanna, 

When you get home we will not be there-heh obviously- we have left. When you get home, put the mail inside and then go nextdoor.

"What did he mean by that ?"

Love, 

Dad 

P.S. I hope you have decided what you are going to do for your senior project...

Aww crap!!! I had totally forgotten!! It was friday and this afternoon my parents were leaving for their anniversary trip!!! Every year I had to go next door to Mrs. Codggins, my neighbor, while my mom and dad went on a trip for their anniversary. 

Oh well, I just shrugged and shoved the note back into my bag, unlocked the door, and walked in.  On the kitchen counter there was an envelope addressed to my parents from Mrs. Codggins next door. Mrs. Codggins was my babysitter when i was little and I had been staying at her house every time my parents went somewhere since I was about nine years old. I loved it there, she gave me cookies when I did chores. 

I also had a feeling there was something strange about Mrs. Codggins. Her husband had died from cancer and she was all alone in the big house. However, I had the strange feeling that she was keeping a secret that wasn't so little. I started to have this feeling when I was about ten years old. I was only ten when it happened, only ten. 

Flashback:

"Good Evening Mrs. Codggins!!!", I said enthusiastically. I had been told by my parents that evening that I was going to stay with Mrs. Codggins, for they were going on vacation for their anniversary. 

I, who had no idea why they were always so secretive on where they were going, always went with the flow and ignored the fact that they were keeping it from me. I just went on happily to Mrs. Codggins house and spent the night there. Mrs. Codggins was a stout little old woman who spent her time crocheting and knitting scarves, mittens, and hats for the little children at the orphanage in the downtown parts of Mystic Falls city.  She had white hair and wore half moon glasses that were always on the end of her nose, allowing her to peek down at you with the classic grandma anger look. 

"Good Evening Erieanna dear", she replied. She was sitting in the wooden rocking chair in the living room, crocheting a pair of mittens in red wool. 

"Say deary, do you mind pouring me a glass of milk from the refrigerator ?", she asked. I nodded.

"Sure", I said, placing my bags on the ground near the back door and walking to the kitchen. I walked to the cabinet, pulled out a glass, and then grabbed the milk out of the fridge. 

Mrs. Codggins was the type of old lady that loved to have warm milk. I don't know why Mrs. Codggins insisted on this, but I had just played along for all these years, suspecting that it was an old timers habit. But little did I know that it wasn't that, but part of a larger, more secretive secret that both my parents and Mrs. Codggins was keeping from me. 

I walked back into the living room and placed the warm glass of milk on the table next to her chair and went to grab my bag from the family room. I walked back in with my bag and Mrs. Codggins was switching to a different color on the mittens, blue. I pulled out my homework and began to work on the dreaded assignments. Well, the sooner they were done, the more time I would have to relax. Mrs. Codggins picked up her glass of milk and drank from it. 

"Erieanna Dear, there is a new package of crocheting clips in the office", she said, "Do you mind grabbing them ?".

I shook my head and put down my work. I walked out into the hallway and then walked into the office. There, on the desk was a package of crocheting clips. I grabbed them and was about to walk out the door when something caught my eye. Through the closet door I could see a glowing blue light. I had never been allowed in the closet, for it was stated to be off limits to me by Mrs. Codggins. 

I was curious though. I set down the clips and trudged towards the closet doors. I could see the blue light, tantalizing me to open the doors and see what it was. Even though it was off limits and I wasn't allowed in the closet, my hand closed ever so slowly around the door knob. I swallowed, was I going to get in trouble ? I pushed the thought away, and tried to focus on the task in front of me. I turned the doorknob and was just about to pull the door open when I was called by Mrs. Codggins. 

"Deary!!! Are you alright ? Can you find them ?", she called, snapping me back to reality and saving me from breaking one of Mrs. Codggins number one rules. 

I shook my head and blinked hard, grabbed the clips and shut the door. Was I really just about to break one of Mrs. Codggins rules, something I had never done in all my time here ? Oh well, I shrugged and walked out, closing the door behind me and then walked back to Mrs. Codggins. She was in her place, still holding the crocheting hooks the same way as when I had left, waiting for a clip so she could change the color of wool she was using. 

What had I seen just then ?
