"I'm ________." You said.
"Are you going to that school over there?" He pointed to the school that you saw earlier.
"Yeah, me and my cousin Amberlyn are going there."
"Amberlyn...huh..." Jeff thought for a moment. "You mean Amberlyn Fitzgerald? The one who lives in the mansion near Evergreen woods?"
"Yup, that's my cousin. I live there with her." You replied.
"Oh, Your parents too?" He looked completely absorbed in the conversation.
"No uh... My parents died in a plane crash a few weeks ago." You frowned, Bad memories flooding back into your mind. Jeff must have sensed your sadness.
"Wow... mine did too- They were killed I mean. So was my brother..." He looked as if he were about to cry. "I live with my friends. You'll probably see them when you come to school."
"Oh... I'm really sorry...for you loss" You said.
Jeff looked down at his cell phone. "Whoops... I gotta get going- It's uh... getting late."
"Oh okay... See ya!" You smiled.
"Later ________!" Jeff sped down the sidewalk.
You turned in the opposite direction and headed towards home, passing Evergreen woods.
You turned and entered the woods, making your way to the same tree that you sat under yesterday. You just sat idly for a few minutes before you started to dose off.
You snapped back to reality when you heard a rustling in the bushes behind you, You spun around quickly and came face to face with well.... no face....
It was abnormally tall, With no facial features and a suit and tie. You gasped, unable to move, The creature flinched, then disappeared.
Your heart fluttered, You were pleasantly disturbed by this strange creature...
You weren't dreaming... This was... real...
You dusted the dirt off of your jeans and headed back to the house. Amberlyn was sitting in the living room, texting on her cell phone. She looked up at you and her eyes lit up.
"Hey ________! I gotta tell you something."
You quickly went over to the sofa and sat next to her.
"I think.... I'm... in love!" Her face was practically a tomato.
"His name's Ben .. He's so sweet!"
"That's nice Amber... Where did you meet him?
"At school... We started talking and... He says he likes me!" She squeaked, holding up her phone, At the top of the screen was the name BEN and below it was multiple text messages with hearts in them.
You smiled and stood up, heading to your bedroom, School started tomorrow. At least Jeff seemed nice, maybe you would have friends after all...
What was that thing you saw in the woods?
