It was Sunday morning and I woke up to the sound of my mom coming into my room. For the first time in my life I was so happy that mom was here with me. "Good morning sweetie" she said and gave me a kiss on my forehead. I smiled back and kissed her cheek. "Hey mom" my sleepy voice made her chuckle a little. "It's today" she said and patted my back.
"I know...I know"
It has been two weeks since Dan's death and honestly, things got better here. This is a story I want to tell to people...Of course they won't believe me at first, but time after time I know that my story will reach every human's ear and tell them this kind of crazy story that could only be a horror novel.
Today it's his funeral and I have to be there. It will sound weird, but I actually want to be there. I want to leave a flower on his grave and whisper to him that although he was doing all of this...He had to know better with who he was dealing and aside from that... Tell him that at least now he won't have to own anything to be alive in the other world. Even if there is one...
I wore my black skater dress, although usually, I hate dresses. I did not ever think that they look good on me anyway. I headed downstairs to find Stephan waiting for me. I was so glad to see him...He and the others saved me from that monster. I quickly headed down the stairs and hugged him tightly, like I had not seen him yesterday. "I'm so glad it's over." I whispered. Stephan stroked my hair and kissed my forehead. "I know doll face...I know."
We walked down the stairs and left for the graveyard. My heart was pounding so fast and I was so anxious that even Stephan could notice it. He patted my back gently and whispered. "Don't worry. Everything will be okay."
I was actually surprised by the fact that he was really calm. Dan shot him deeply on the shoulder and caused a great damage on his left hand so he had to keep it on a cast for a whole month. I feel so bad for involving my cousin on this too...Not only him but my friends and my crush as well. I wish nothing like that happened but I can't go back and fix it.
When we finally arrived at the graveyard, we all sat down on the wooden chairs, that the church had, in the green outdoor afternoon and listened to the church guy, reading the Bible I think? I don't know...I don't believe in God. Lucifer was sitting by next to me holding my hand.
After Dan's death I was awaken in Stephan's house being treated by Lucifer. He explained everything that happened and I gave him my experiences. His deep beautiful eyes made my heart sink every time I saw them. I couldn't help but kiss him while I touch him from his ginger locks. He kissed me back pretty quick.
To my surprise Ada and Jimmy were there too. And they were more than just friends.
Everything seemed peaceful since then...But a feeling of grief caught my heart wrapped up by the feeling. It was Dan holding the strings. Although, he did all of these things to me, I can't help but wish he didn't die. Of course I never blamed my friends, neither my cousin or crush for it. They just wanted to help me. But this feeling of something being missing...Felt like forgetting your pencil case at your house but you really needed it at school because of a test. I just wish he is okay wherever he is. My childhood memories of him always hunted me in the next years...I know because I still remember it although I am 26 now.
Although I don't believe in God, I swear, I saw a bird sitting on the edge of Dan's grave looking at me. It was white and beautiful, its wide eyes being dull and affected by the sunlight from the outdoor place. Lucifer looked at it too. We both smiled knowing that we had the same thought in our mind: Dan was finally somewhere, far away, resting his soul.
