Someone In The Dark
July 4, 2009
"Oh My Gosh Natalie. The Fireworks Are Beautiful", My Best-Friend Stasi Said. "I Know, This Is Gorgeous." We Were Walking In The North Trail Forest, And Yes, At Night. Sorry, My Name Is Natalie Jessica Smith. I Am 18 Years Young. I Have Long Jet Black & Blue Hair With Gray Eyes & Caramel Skin. I Love Wearing Black, Gray, Purple, & Royal Blue. Call Me Emo. I Don't Care. I Live With My Dad, Brother (Jarrel) & My Sister (Aaliyah). My Mom Was An Alcoholic & She Died 3 Days Before Christmas. The Only Person Who Is There For Me Is Stasi. She Was My Best Friend Since Pre-K. I Love Her To Bits & Pieces. Me & Stasi Were Walking The Dirt Trail And I Hear Something Pass Us By. "Did You Hear That?" Stasi Stops Walking & Looks At Me Like I'm Dumb. "Girl Hear What? You're Crazy." I Scoff & Roll My Eyes. I Hear Branches, Sticks, & Leaves Rumbling In The Backdrop. "There It Is Again!" "Nat, You're IMAGINING THINGS. Get Over It." Then A Tall, Slim Figure Appears In Front Of Us. We Both Gasp. The Wind Picks Up Speed. It Starts Raining, Heavily. What The Hell? My Clothes Are Drenched. A Soft But Manly Voice Speaks,"Hello Ladies." Out Of Nowhere, I See A Lightning Flash. The Light From The Flash Shows His Face. He's...He's...Beautiful. His Hair Frames His Face So Perfectly. His Hair Is Long & Curly. His Caramel Complexion Is Smooth. His Light Brown Eyes Are Burning A Hole Through Me. Then He Speaks, "What Are You Doing In The Forest In The Middle Of The Night?" "What's It To You? Creep." I Swear, Stasi Is So Rude At Times. I Guess I Will Try To Smooth Things Out. "S-She D-Doesn't Mean I-It." He Walks To Me, Slowly. "I'm Pretty Sure She Means It. Do You?" I Don't Get It. Mean What? He Is In My Face Now. His Stare Is Intense. I Look Down. He Lifts My Head Up With His Finger. He Leans In Slowly. I Catch My Breath. Next Thing I Know, He Kisses Me Softly. I Respond By Kissing Him Back. We Pull Away. I Look Down Again. What Did I Just Do? It's Like He Hypnotized Me, Paralyzed Me. I Don't Even Know His Name. He Backs Away Into The Cold Rain, Thunder, & Lightning.
I Blink. My Eyes Rolled To The Back Of My Head. I AM Paralyzed. Just When I Think All Things Are All Going Bad, They Get WORSE. Everything Goes Black & I Fall To The Ground.
Tears don't mean you're losing. Everybody's bruising. It's okay not to be okay. ♥
