"What's your name?" I asked.

"My name?" She said confused.

"Yes your name"

"I don't know..."

"How don't you know your name!?"

"Sorry, I have to go." She said as she began running away into nothingness. The sky was gone, the ground was gone. Everything was gone. Where were we? And where did she go?

"Wait you forgot your...! What is this?" Before I could find out what she had dropped I started feeling a rhythmic pounding on my arm. Everything started to fade into the white background and I heard a voice calling my name.

"Damon. Damon. Come on"

"This voice, whose is it? I know him."

"Damon wake up... You ass! You're going to make us late!

"I'm up, I'm up. Jeesh my arm hurts" I did know that voice. It was my best friend Alec. I glanced outside my window only to see that the dark sky swallowed its light. That doesn't bode well." Um hey did you by any chance see the girl who dropped her stuff in front of the school the other day"

" No but you need to hurry up if we're late coach is going to have us running suicides. The last time I ran suicides I-I..."

" Ok, no need to get all emotional. I'm almost ready." I started putting on my clothes but I couldn't help thinking that today something was going to be different. Different... huh. This might be fun." Hey is your car outside?"

"Yeah come on." After wrestling practice I went back outside to head for class. Everything was so beautiful even if the sky didn't feel like getting dressed today. I walked down the narrow road with Sakura trees standing on both sides when I saw her again.

"Excuse me!" I yelled

"Um...hi" she said shyly. I gathered every possible thing I could have said, to not make me look like a stalker, in my brain and my brain obviously couldn't handle the pressure because it threw everything up in my mouth.

" I was watching you the other- ... I mean I like how you-... Um your name? Then something unexpected happened. She giggled. It was so cute and high-pitched, especially the way she tried to hide it.

"My name is Michelle and I guess I've been watching you also."

"You have?" I said with a cheesy grin.

"Yeah you and your friend really do make a scene."

"Oh sorry about that, he can be a little hard to deal with-"

" I have to go, I'll see you later." She said cutting me off. Then she started running towards the doors to the science department of school.

"Ok, see you- wait you dropped something!" She was already gone. But something wasn't right. As I reached down to pick up what she dropped the air around me became bitter and cut my skin. The petals from the trees became like small daggers that lunged at my heart."What the!" I screamed as I jumped just at they hit the ground. Something was wrong. I ran to the object wrapped in cloth and when I opened it I couldn't believe what I saw.
