I managed to sneak down and have breakfast at ten after looking at my photographs. I thought she would never go back to bed. My mother… has problems. I’ll just leave it at that. I don’t want to think about that now. Onto other things.
I lied back on my bed and stared at the ceiling. I began to think about Katie. I now had two mysteries: her death and my curse. Death seemed infatuated with us.
My eyes began to slowly sink shut. I felt myself floating out of my body.
Dark silence. I couldn’t feel anything. I look down at my hands. I can’t even see those. I know I am here. But yet, I am not. I’m dreaming again. I can’t explain this feeling otherwise.
Phoenix. Phoenix. Baby sister! I slowly looked up. I can’t see her, but I know that is Katie calling me. I looked around. A pair of blue-green eyes stares back at me.
“Katie? Katie, where are you?”
“But where? Where can I find you?”
“Find me, Baby sister! Find me! Find me!”
“Where are you?” Katie spoke no more. Her eyes vanished. I was left back in the darkness. Alone.
When I came to, I found myself lying on Katie’s bed, facing the ceiling. I have to find her.
