"I mean this sincerely with every fiber of my being, I find you to be vile and extremely repugnant. I have the most extreme contempt for you and I loath you completely."

5. Chapter Three

April 2 1817

The slight chill in the air made me shudder, I pull at my sleeves, why had I gone for a walk so late at night. 
The bottom of my white nightgown had become stained with dirt and mud, branches reached out clawing at me, pulling at my robe, the moon is full, but clouds cover it keeping it's light from me. My heart thumped hard in my chest, I remember walking for such a long time, but I want to go back and I don't recall exactly how to get back to my home. I try with all I have within me to remember, fear slowly creeps into me making it much harder to remember even the slightest detail. I have no success in trying to brush the feeling away, trying my best to remain brave does absolutely no good.

Trees seemed to lean in on me, I knew my eyes were playing tricks on me, for trees most certainly can do no such thing. The darkness overwhelms me, as I walk branches seem to pull at my hair, my hair would get caught in the twisted limbs, each one hurting more than the last. 

I dart into a very small clearing amongst the trees, a place I could hide in, just to get away from the tree branches grasp, just for a moment, long enough for me to calm myself down.

My mouth seems so dry, I can't manage to swallow. I could hear my heart, I could hear it throbbing in my chest.


It took me a very long time before I got back to my home, my eyes hung heavily, for I needed some sleep, my adventure in the woods had exhausted me thoroughly, my body aches everywhere, my robe and nightgown had been ripped many times, they both now hang tattered and frayed at the bottoms and at the sleeves, the scratches on my arms and legs sting tremendously.

My immediate thoughts were of my bed, I would worry about what had possibly possessed me to leave my home in the dead of night, in the morning, I don't remember walking back either. In the morning my mind will be refreshed and I can think better then, surely I will remember then.

My stomach growls lightly just before opening the door of my home, I brush the empty feeling in the pit of my stomach aside, my hunger would have to wait, besides as sleepy as I am, I wouldn't be able to eat anyways. 

From the very moment I stepped into the house something felt wrong, so awfully wrong. Something terrible is what I sense, dread built up inside me, it ate away at my insides, my legs turn limp, I could feel the color drain from my face, like as if I had seen a ghost. I try to walk, try to talk myself into moving, but my legs simply would not be swayed into moving from their place, they feel like paper being weighted down by bricks.

I take deep breathes in and out several times to calm myself, I gather all my strength and all my courage, I force myself to move forward, gradually I do move forward little by little, each step becomes a little faster, a little easier, the feeling arises that maybe I was acting like a foolish child, maybe for once I had let my imagination take over. Maybe I had let my mind play tricks on me, maybe?
