Welcome to Heaven
The red light from the sun through my curtains glowed on my face. I grumbled to myself as I drew my eyes open. Too bright!, my mind screamed.
My eyes trailed over to the wall near the door. All seventy-one pictures of Baby Doll made me smile. Oh, sheï¿½s such a dear. Sheï¿½s trying to find the people who killed her.
ï¿½Why?ï¿½ I asked her one day. She shrugged at me.
ï¿½Give my grandma piece of mind, I guess,ï¿½ she said. I nodded a bit.
ï¿½I guess,ï¿½ I said. ï¿½But, what do you plan to do with them after you find them?ï¿½ She gave me a blank look on her face.
ï¿½I donï¿½t knowï¿½ï¿½ she said. ï¿½Make the police do something about them.ï¿½
I smiled and patted her on the arm. She looked up at me.
ï¿½Must be nice to have your memories like that,ï¿½ I said. She raised an eyebrow at me.
ï¿½What do you mean?ï¿½ she asked.
ï¿½You see,ï¿½ I said. ï¿½After you are signed into Heaven, they take away your memories from your life on earth.ï¿½
ï¿½No,ï¿½ she murmured. I nodded at her.
ï¿½It is true,ï¿½ I said.
ï¿½They went us to be the perfect little tool for God.ï¿½
Baby Doll shook her head at me. ï¿½Thatï¿½s terrible.ï¿½
ï¿½But, thatï¿½s how it is.ï¿½
ï¿½Then, what should I do?ï¿½
ï¿½Enjoy your memories while you still can.ï¿½
Baby Doll lowered her head. ï¿½That sucks.ï¿½
ï¿½Yes, I know,ï¿½ I said. I wasnï¿½t lying about any of it either. I canï¿½t remember anything before I became an angel. I donï¿½t remember my family, home, school, friends, or anything. Himeko told me not to worry about it.
ï¿½Whatï¿½s so fun about the past, anyway?ï¿½ she asked. ï¿½Just live in the moment and enjoy the hell out of it.ï¿½ Usually, she just handles the rest of bullshit on a plate. But there are those things that she actually takes me something useful. However for extended measures, I take photos every single day. My cell phone and camera are jacked full of photographs.
Speaking of cell phoneï¿½
My little phone buzzed on my nightstand. I reached over and picked it up.
ï¿½Hey there sexy,ï¿½ I said as my lips curved into a smile. ï¿½Dreaming about me last night? ... Ooo! ï¿½ Say, are you doing anything time? ... Sweet. ï¿½ Meet up at our usual place? ï¿½ No problem. ï¿½ See you there at nine. ï¿½ Love ya, bye.ï¿½ I held the phone to my chest as I smiled. I opened my eyes as I looked at my clock and I remembered.
ï¿½Oh crap,ï¿½ I said. I leapt out of bed and got ready for the morning.
