I don't have much to say haha. Chapter two. You learn how Hudson predicts the future. I've watched Terminator and Final Destinations too much. That's how I came up with this idea to be honest. I just threw a bunch of things together and mixed them up! But I really love this story :3 Please enjoy!


The shrill ringing of my alarm clock made me bolt up in bed. I fiddled around for a second until I managed to slam my hand down on it. I slid out of bed and into the bathroom to shower. After I dried my hair and threw on some clothing I smoothed out my hair, hoping it looked okay. There were no mirrors in my house.

As soon as I slid my backpack over my shoulders I heard a knock at the door. I raised an eyebrow. Why would someone be knocking at my door? I didn't know anyone here yet. I walked over to it and opened it. As soon as I saw familiar black hair I slammed the door in his face.

"Hey!" he called through the door. "Don't you want to walk to school together?"

"No," I responded, standing in front of my door.

"Why not?"

"I don't know you!"

"My name is Hudson Matthews. "

I stayed silent.

"What's your name?" he asked.

I sighed and gave in, opening the door again. "Emmery Willow."

"As in the weeping tree? What? Did you cry a lot when you were a kid?"

I gave him a sarcastic look and started marching down the stairs and onto the street. I turned left and strode down the street at a fast pace.

"Hey, I was just kidding!"

I ignored him.

"You're going the wrong way."

I paused and turned around. "I am?"

"Follow me, Willow." He turned around and marched back down the street in the direction we had come from.

"Fine," I responded, following him down the street.

After a few minutes of silence curiosity got the best of me. "How did you know that car was going to crash into me yesterday?" I asked, looking up at the strange man.

Hudson looked over his shoulder, speeding up slightly. "I didn't know."

I narrowed my eyes, matching his pace. "Yes, you must have known. There was no way you could not have known. It happened in a split second."

Hudson shrugged. "I guess I was lucky."

I grit my teeth together. This guy was obviously hiding something. "But you even drew the exact square where the car stopped."

"I don't know what you're talking about," Hudson responded, cocking an eyebrow. "Are you feeling okay?"

"I'm feeling fine!" I snapped, crossing my arms. "You helped me! You knew that car was coming!"

"You're crazy. How could I?"

"I have no clue, but how else could you have saved me? There was a split second after we heard the car and the impact of it. And you drew that square around the exact place where the car was!" I explained to him, now starting to run to keep up with his quick stride.

"I don't know what you're talking about!" he responded, full out sprinting now.

"Why are you running away then?" I shouted after him, doing my best to keep up with him.
