aka "Extrasensory Perception"
It was making my life miserable. My mother begun seeing me strangely and my younger sisters would be always scared of me. They avoid me as much as they could. It came to a point that I woke up in a white room, having all my limbs restrained. I tried speaking but all was mumble. I was so confused. I learned that I was gagged. I began to panic. I stopped as soon as the door across me opened and entered a line of people in white. I watched as they positioned themselves around me.
"Where am I? Who are you? Oh god, please let me go- What do you want from me?" I tried speaking but all was mumble. I started crying..
"Please.. please" I sobbed.
Grunting. I saw a figure of a woman on the other side of the glass pane. I recognized her by then. It was my mother. For the moment, I felt relief. I tried getting up and screamed. But the restrains were holding in place. I screamed,
"Mom! Help me! I beg you!". Mumbled.. "Mom, please, I need you!" I cried out.
I could feel my heavy breathing. But she turned away. She was sobbing. I couldn't hear her but her shoulders were shaking. I saw her about to hurl.
"Patient's name, Kimberly Jones, 16. Female. To be performed shock therapy under the services of Dr. Cebrecus." One of them said.
After soon they attached strange patches all over my chest and my head. And I blanked out.
Years have passed, I grew up having a normal life just like everybody. I have a lot of friends and I was so happy. Mother and I had good relationship since then. I towards my 2 younger sisters as well. I went to college finally and took Nursing in the neighboring state. It was always my dream to become one. And I met a guy. His name was Ben. He was different from all of the guys I met. He was caring and sweet. Dominant but gentle. And his eyes that were so trustworthy. We became us and I could never be anymore happier. More complete. Safe and secure.
One rainy night. I was in my bedroom at my desk, with my work lamp on. I was going through my notes and studying for the next weeks midterm-exam. It was 1 in the morning already and I decided to turn in. Suddenly, there was tapping at my window, it made me jumped and swiftly swung a look at it. It was Ben. I exhaled in relief. He smiled in amusement and gestured if he could come in.
I excitedly opened my window and asked him, "oh my god, what the hell are you doing here?"
Since the building I am in do not allow boys, the land lady would really kill him if she'd know he had sneaked in. I was so sure I explained that to him.
"It's raining.." I exclaimed.
He just smiled. His shoes elicited a squished sound as he stepped in. He hushed as he leaned down to kiss me. We were both laughing silently. He said he was out with his friends and on the way home, his car got jammed. Since, it was not far from my place, he decided that maybe he could stay for awhile at least just until the rain would stop. He tossed his head back and pouted as to how hard it was to climb up. He was adorable and I gave him the chance to stay. So, he hung his clothes in the bathroom hoping it would at least dry a little. We lied down cuddling.. It was nice and comfortable.. We talked for a while. We heard sirens in a distant and assumed that there was another accident. Predictably, road would be slippery. The rain was still pouring outside my window and there was total darkness in my room. Accidents scares me. Somehow gives me the eerie kind of feeling. I saw how all the people brought to the hospital and how scary it was to see someone would be in the brink of death. Ben just hugged me and comforted me saying it's alright and he's always here for me.. I told him about how I used to see dead people before. That how they used to haunt me..
"Do you still see them?" He asked.
I turned myself towards him, hugged him and told him "Someone took it away. And I am good now."
I rested my head on his bare chest. This is where I wanna be. I could forget all my problems and horrors of my life.. Here, just here.. Hearing the sound of his hear--
I froze.. "Oh my god.." I whimpered..
Then, he slowly wrapped his arms around me.. tightly.. Whispered.. "Well, he didn't succeed..."
