Chapter 3: those eyes

49 4 0

Hours later I got home. When I tried to open the door I realized it was locked. Scrambling through my bag, I cursed at the realization that my key was no where to be found which left me with two choices, I could bang on the door and hope my dad is at least sober enough to hear it, or I could climb the side of the house to get to my window. Not wanting to risk any trouble with my father I decided to inch my way up the lattice work. I looked down and had a heart attack, I had to be at least 20 feet off of the ground!! I quickly tightened my grip on the white plastic like strips. "Just a little more" I reminded myself. Finally, after what felt like an eternity, I reached my window sill. Using what little upper body strength I had, I pulled myself through the open window and slumped on the floor. Feeling exhausted, I decided that I would take a short nap. I pulled on some leggings and a loose T-shirt in place of my other clothes. Lying down on my bed staring at my clock I noticed the time was 3:32 and the last thing I thought of before dropping off into dream land was those piercing blue eyes from lunch today..

~Alex's dream~

I'm in a dark room, so dark I can barely see my hands in front of my face. I know I'm dreaming but it feels so real, I've been through this dream so many times before I know exactly what happens next. My father bursts through a door on the side wall that I hadn't noticed before and he begins yelling at me about how much of a screw up I am. I already know this dad. Then I feel something in my hands, something that feels rough and sort of thick. Looking down, I know exactly what it is and what I need to do with it. Quickly, I wrap it around my throat without a second thought and tighten it. I jump and feel it tighten.


I jump up from my dream as always, but something was different this time. This time in the corner of the room there was voice yelling at me saying I didn't have to go like that. But I knew I did. That's how it will be always. I will go down by my own choice and not too long from now either. Just a few more days.

{once again sorry it's short. I've been having some issues and stuff and I'm sorry it's so late 😣}
