P.S- Any movellian who is under the age of thirteen should not read this story. It contains sexual content and I do not want this movella removed. It is very important to me as being that the subject of cancer is very near to my heart. I trust that everyone will be honest about this and respect my wishes and the websites.

I walked into the room, the mysterious man following me. My mother gasped as she caught the color of his eyes. She pulled me aside and whispered,


"He has Chuck's eyes, how can he have Chuck's eyes? He isn't Chuck is he?"


"I don't know doesn't it take years not hours to be reincarnated? I'm just as confused at you are mom."


Mystery man came over to introduce himself. "Hello I'm terribly sorry for not introducing myself. My name is Lawerence Charles Tylers of London. And you are?"


"My name? My name is Amelia. I'm sorry for staring its just that my fiance just died and you have his eyes. Silver and blue tinted."


"Very rare I assume?"

"Very rare indeed Lawerence." I looked more closely at him and saw he had his nose as well and the shape of their lips were so similar it was remarkable. My family were just awestruck at the likeness between the two. Margaret and Andrew came back from the cafetria their little detour and dropped their coffees when they saw him.


"Chuck? Is it you?" Margaret whispered, tears swarming like bees around a flower threatening to overflow at any moment.


"Who is this Chuck that everyone compares me to?" that made her tears cascade down her face in an effortless flow of sadness and despair. She shook with every sob the realization that her only son was gone forever, it knocked her to the ground and she rocked back and forth crying and whispering 'Chuck mommy's are supposed to die first not the children. COME back to me and Amelia!' over and over again until the tears simply ran out and she fell asleep. Andrew carried her to the bed and began to cry himself. He wanted to stay strong for her sake. His tears were hell bent on making everyone else cry as well.


I gave in first, at first my tears were slow. As if they were hoping Chuck would walk through that door and see me crying and come and kiss them from my white cheeks. Then they sped up knowing he was gone forever. When I had finally finished there was a small pond at my feet. Everyone's tears joined together in one body of sadness of losing Chuck. I got up slowly and took in my arms the only being I had left that shared Chuck's being as well. My daughter. Iva looked at my tear drenched face and went to my eyes and held her little fingers there as if she knew where the wetness had come from. Maybe she did know? I looked into her eyes and they weren't indigo. They were silver and blue. Her father's eyes perfectly replicated in her tiny beautiful face I would never truly be without him.


"Come on we still have his body to claim. I asked the hospital to keep the coffin Chuck bought here so it wouldn't worry you he should be ready now." They all looked shocked but then they thought it over and accepted the fact that Chuck knew he was dying and he accepted it. I hadn't realized that Lawerence was following us until I heard my sister speak to him,


"The likeness between you and my late best friend is undeniable. Its like your his long lost twin or something."


"Amelia how can you be in two places at once? Unless you are the one called Amanda?" he joked. He even had Chuck's humor. Obviously Amanda saw that too because she gasped before she started laughing. It was so nice to hear her laugh. She hadn't laughed since before she found out about Chuck's disease which no longer exists. I felt a single tear escape its cell behind my eyes. I cursed beneath my breath. Iva looked at me with so much intelligence for a two day old not even, it was scary. Her eyes, his eyes looked straight through me, into my soul and I suddenly felt better some of my sorrow was washed away and my gait was faster and when the morgue came into sight I took a deep breathe and walked through the double diner like doors and came face to face with Chuck. It had to be his ghost. He was dead!


Chuck's POV:


She looked at me as if she had seen a ghost. Maybe she had? Was I dead? I remember the doctors working on me because of my head. I remember the heart monitor beeping then flat lining. Then I remember waking up in the morgue almost being cut 'y' open. The morticican and coroner were just as surprised as I was. They quickly recovered and brought me fresh clothes. Then the double doors flew open and there was Amelia and Iva and our families. Then I saw a man that looked exactly like me.




"Come on Lawerence we haven't got all day!"


"Charles please wait up! Your not going to drop dead! Are you?"


"Of course not!" I had spat in anger. "Don't mention anything to the girls alright?"


"Fine. Why must we hang with cootie munsters anyway?"


"Just because we're seven doesn't mean we can't hang with Amelia and Amanda." Lawerence silenced and continued following me to the pond, our special place. When Amelia and Amanda saw us they squealed and ran to us. Their sunday dresses flapping in the wind.


"Hello boys." Amelia said.


"Hello Lawerence." Amanda said. Amelia nudged her in the ribs and Amanda silenced herself.


"Amelia, Amanda what shall we do with our time today?"


"How about hide and seek. The losing team has to kiss the winners!"


"Fine. Prepare to lose!" we all ran into the deeper part of the forest. I could hear Amelia counting; 1,2,3,4,5,,,9,10,11,12,,,15,16,17,,,20,21,22,23,,,27,,,31 ready or not here I come. Amelia and I went to find either Lawerence or Amanda. I heard Lawerence yelp in surprise and knew we had lost. Damn his claustophobia! Amelia returned to the clearing empty handed. "I followed the sound of his yelp but he was gone all I found was a torn bit of shirt! I searched everywhere!" she was crying. I grabbed her and Amanda and we ran from the forest like madmen. When we reached the house we finally stopped. We ran to get our parents and I remember my mother falling to the ground and said 'They have come'




"Lawerence?Is it really you brother?" he blinked a few times and a smile lit up his features and we met and embraced.


"Charles it has been to long." finally it seemed to click with everyone. Lawerence had returned.


"Lawerence? Is it you?" Amanda asked I knew she loved him.


"It is I." We all hugged the four of us. And there we were in the morgue embracing eachother for dear life.
