I sat there in math class, bored as ever. I was twirling my pencil in my hand, i glanced over at Nicole and noticed that she was wearing an outfit sort of like Emily's. But i thought she looked really cute in her shorts, unlike my sister. Nicole leaned over to her friends desk and passed her a quick note. I sat there watching her, waiting for the bell to ring so i could go to lunch and meet up with my best friend Eric.
The bell rang and i jumped out of my seat and ran to my locker, i shoved my binder in and headed to lunch. My lunch was in my hand, but all of a sudden i lost my balance feeling something heavy on my back. Looking over my shoulder i saw Emily, "hey, bro! lets go im going to eat lunch with you and Eric today!" She smiled her cute smile and i let her ride on my back. We were very close to each other ever since our parents had died.
Walking into the lunch room i squinted a bit at the bright light, the halls were much dimer than the cafeteria. The room roared with laughter and talking, i spotted Eric easily at our table near the window. Emily was a cheerleader and she usually sat with them, but i guess she wanted to sit with me for some odd reason. I sat down across from Eric, Emily by my side. "hey eric..." i said in a bored tone. Eric looked me up and down. "dude, did you get any sleep last night? wait, dont tell me you had that dream again...." he looked at me a bit worried. He knew everything about me, including those haunted nightmares that just wont stop haunting me. They were always showing up in my mind. I nodded and yawned, resting my head on the table i heard Emily gasp a bit. "you had those dreams...again? You know you're suppose to tell Auntie when you get them. I thought you said you havent had any in a long time. Didnt you tell that Therapist that?" she asked a bunch of questions all at once, a head ache started growing and i groaned.
"Emily..it's fine. Nothing to worry about and dont talk about that Therapist guy. He didnt help me at all." I got up, i wasnt hungry anymore. "ill see you guys later.." I headed to class and waited for the school day to end.
Emily had a practice after school, so i just walked home with Eric. We headed to my house, eric and i were like brothers and Emily liked him as well. It was hard to have a friend so popular when you weren't but i got use to it. He keeps all my secrets and i keep all of his.
As i walked i suddenly stopped walking a wind knocked me out and i fell to the ground. My eyes werent fully close but my eye lids felt so heavy. I noticed that we were right beside the haunted house.....my old house. My eyes closed and i laid there on the street totally out cold. While my friend was going crazy, being worried about me.
My eyes fluttered open and i saw a group of people there faces full of worry. "wh-what happened?" my voice was soft and light as a feather. I wonder if they heard me. Emily looked down at me, she bit her lip nervously. "Demetri....you fainted or something while you were walking home. Do you remember anything?" she asked her voice sounded a bit shaky.
Eric stepped up and smiled. "well happy you're awake. Lets forget this happened, okay? I mean we should be use to this. Its like his daily schedule. Walking home then faint." he chuckled a bit and i rolled my eyes. "very funny."
I walked down the street at night, everything was dark and the leafless trees swayed from side to side. I looked everywhere worriedly. My bangs fell down my face and i tried to run away from the darkness that was stalking me. I felt something on my shoulder and turned around......
I shot up out of bed my breathing slowed a bit sweat dripped down my forehead. I had a nightmare again, but this time it was a little different then the usual. My breathing finally became normal. I got out of bed and slipped on some clean clothes, it was still the middle of the night, but i just had to get something off my chest.
I made sure i walked as quietly as possible, but then i heard a little meow and jumped a bit. I saw Daisy wagging her black tail side to side, she meowed once more, her auburn eyes twinkling a bit. I placed a finger to my lip. "shhh, daisy ill play with you some other time." Dashing out of the house hoping no one noticed my absent i ran towards my old house, that will haunt me for the rest of my life.
I took a deep breath in and let it out slowly. I have to do this...maybe my dreams are some sort of clues or something, but what is that thing lurking in my house? Is it the thing that killed my parents? I dont know....but im going to find out some way or another. I pushed the door open and it made a loud creaking sound. I cringed and walked into the house. It was seriously dark and dusty. Cobwebs hung in the corners, it really was like a haunted house.
I walked upstairs heading to my room, which was such a small room now that i thought about it. I smiled a bit but i still felt sad. My room looked the same as ever, small, crammed with things i didnt need. Walking towards my closet i opened it and pushed all of the old clothes aside, finding a little book in the back. The book had everything about me really. It had my secrets, me thoughts,everything that ran through my mind was scribbled down in that book. I picked it up and blew the dust off of it. Plopping down on my bed i read the first entry.
Today is my 6 birthday and my aunt told me that my mom wanted to give me this when i was old enough to write. Im pretty happy about having this journal, but i wish my mom was the one who gave it to me. I miss them so much. It's been 2 years since they died. I have a talent for writing so my journal is going to sound so much better than Emily's diary. I miss them so much, and if i keep on writing about them in my journal im going to cry....so i guess ill write more when i feel like.....
I smiled at the entry and i missed my parents so much. I clutched the journal to my chest and let tears stream down my face.
