Life's Journey

Bella wakes up in this strange land not remembering anything. Visions and dreams help her remember who she is but how can she get back to her real life? Does she want to return? If you could change your life forever would you?


2. the parents

The sun rays beaming through the window at 7 am wake me up. I guess I am still in fantasy land. I decided to just go with what would happen to me today. I'm Getting dressed and hear a knock on the door. It's Amelia ready to take me wherever we are going. There is something about her that feels familiar but not really quite sure what it is.

"Good morning Bella. Have a nice night sleep"

she sounded so happy to see me and didn't look tired at all.

"Yeah I guess. I kept having the same dream last night over and over again."

We headed to breakfast in a different garden than last night. What's up with all the nature scenes?

"So what about that dream you were telling me earlier?" Amelia asked curiously.

"In this dream I don't remember if it's actually real but, the dream was of me when I was really young maybe 6 or 7 years old with a boy around the same age with blond curly hair and green eyes. We were on a playground at school I believe because a bell starts to ring. I stayed on the swing and the boy didn't leave until the teacher called him over."

I paused trying to remember every detail. Amelia chimed in and asked if I could remember his name.

"Jake. His name was Jake. But when he left I stayed on the swing. That was it."

I pull up my head to look at Amelia but past her blonde hair, I see the swing set. The same one in my dream. Dropping my water I slowly walk over to the swing set. It looks so familiar but I just don't remember what happened that day with Jake. The swing calls to me to sit down and swing. So I do. The last time I was on a swing set was a very long time ago I think. It brings be back to when I was younger and times were not as complicated. I wander off into my train of thought and fall face first into the dirt. Coming back to reality I see my younger self face first in the dirt and a boy behind me pushed me down. People were laughing at me and pointing fingers. A bell rings and everyone runs away except one. Jake. He stayed with me and was the only one who wanted to help me. I get up and see Amelia standing in front of me.

"What just happened to me?" I was confused.

Amelia said "your memories are coming back to you. Anything that happens in your dreams are real and once in a while you will get a flashback and this will help you if you want to leave." She sounded sad and was not making any sense. Can I actually leave? But how?

"OK Bella. What do you want to do today?" Amelia asked me.

I said to her "I might just explore around a little and see if anything else can help me bring my memory back."

"OK Bella. If that's what you want them have fun."

Before we parted ways she gave me a big hug as if she already knew me. I mean we just met last night. Right? She let go of me and I decided to just wonder around alone. I turn around and Amelia is already gone. Is that even possible? Getting back on topic, I decide to travel through the forest area and see if anything comes to me. Lost in my train of thought I hear a noise in the woods. I have only seen animals in this place so far so disregard it and keep walking. Past some fallen logs and streams of water. The same noise comes again. Closer and closer to me every time. I turn around and start to run. I slam into a tree falling backwards. I'm in a car and the man in the drivers seat slams the breaks and all I hear is a loud crash and I'm in an ambulance. My head hurts and I can't move my legs. The driver of the car was on the ground surrounded by car pieces and lots of blood. People ran to him and take him to another ambulance. I start screaming and crying. I was 10 years old and that man was my father. In the hospital room I was the only one with my dad.

"Daddy please. Don't leave me."

"Honey I just want to say you have been the greatest daughter a father could ever have. Now I need you to be brave and promise me that you will live your life to the fullest."

"I promise dad. I love you."

" love you too pumpkin"

The room goes silent and I pick my head up to see the forest but my head doesn't hurt anymore. I start crying. I remember my dad. I loved my dad and he was always there for me. The noise from the woods is back but it's not an animal but a person. A Tall man. He approaches me and I see that's it's the same man from my vision. It's my dad.

"Bella? Is it really you?"

He comes running into my arms and hugs me.

"Dad?" His eyes get teary.

"Yeah pumpkin it's me."

I hug him back crying. It's been 6 years since I saw my dad and it was the hardest thing for me to do in my life. Everything fell apart after that. My dad and I did everything together and he kept me happy. He was my only friend.

"what are you doing here Bella? What happened to you?"

I didn't know how to respond to him. "You don't know do you?"

I just shook my head. He helped me stand up and looked into my brown eyes remembering how we use to be before he died.

"honey, you are not dead. You know that right?" I shook my head yes.

"I know I'm not dead but.... how.."

I didn't know how to say to my dads face "I'm not dead but you are so how can I see you right now?"

My dad just helped me out "how can we see each other"

He read my mind but didn't look happy anymore.

"Well, I'm not really here." I was confused. " how are you not here but... here?"

He responded "I know it's kind of confusing right now but I am just here to help you. You have a second chance to start over and change your life."

"Well can you help me?" He sighed. "I wish I could but you need to do this on your own. I'm here for support and to help you remember."

We walked and talked for a while.

"hey dad what was my mom like?" He was shocked by the question but took a deep breath and answered.

"She was the light of my life. Blonde hair like yours and deep green eyes like the freshly cut fields. She was always excited about something and never in a bad mood. She loved everyone and imagined how you would turn out in life. We both had great expectations for you. She wanted you to become what ever you wanted to be and to be your own person. That day she passed on... she told me to never let you out of my sight. She wanted me to be your role model and always be there for you when you needed me."

He looked up to the sky like he was talking to her. "I guess I failed Amelia. I'm so sorry."

I looked up at him surprised. "Her name is Amelia? I met her when I first came here! I can't believe I actually met my mom. That's all I ever wanted."

I started crying tears of joy and my dad looked shocked. "You saw her? She's here?"

"yes she is and I know you will find her. You have to."

We stopped talking and arrived at a school building. It was not the same elementary school with the swing set but a bigger school. We stoped on the hill.

"honey this is as far as I can go."

I didn't want to lose him again. I just got my dad back!

"Dad don't go. I could stay here and be with you and mom!"

He looked at me and gave me a hug.

"This is as hard for me as it is for you. I just got my baby girl back and have to let her go again. But before you go, I wanted to say... I'm sorry for that night. The car accident. I was a terrible father and it's my fault you went through your teenage years with out a father and grew up with out a mom."

I started to cry remembering the pain I went through watching my dad die and going to bury him.

"Dad it's not your fault and you were a great father to me. You were always there for me when I needed you and I could always go to you when I needed to laugh, cry, talk or I just wanted to sit and be with someone who cared for me. I just miss you. A lot. I want my daddy back!"

I embraced him giving him a big hug not wanting to let go. It is so hard saying goodbye to a parent you are close to and knowing you will not see them again for a really long time. My mom died during my birth and i lost my dad. I had no one to go to.

"I love you daddy"

my dad started to cry a little but stayed strong for me. He always did.

"I love you too pumpkin. It's time to go though."

I get up and turn to the school. I feel a cooling breeze behind me and know he's gone. I kept going straight not looking back.
