I was the avatar
It was dark . It felt as though Wendy were floating in the darkness. It wasn’t the darkness that frightened the children in the night ,it was calming like a blanket of the night. Wendy did not know how she got there or what had happened but it was calming, soothing almost. Wendy began to think.
Wendy heard , but she didn’t hear it she felt it.
“Why shouldn’t I think? Where am I ? What happened.” Wendy called out into the darkness.
The dark which had once sooth her now made her skin crawl.
Don’t think Wendy , Be calm
The voice called again. Wendy tried to move but she couldn’t.
“Please,” Wendy begged.”Whats happening.”
Wendy was in full panic mode .
Listen and be calm , the voice commanded, you have been selected and given a task
“What is the task?” Wendy called out.
You have been touched by death You have seen death You have been given a task
“What ? What do you mean ? What are you talking about. Where am I ? Please answer me?” Wendy pleaded.
Wendy Crinkton tonight at 9:07 you were in an accident with your friend Riley Zanders
Wendy’s heart shattered. She remembered .
The sky poured that night. She remembered the clap of thunder and the sound of the car crashing and crinkling together. She remember the argument they were having.
“Where’s Riley? What happened to Riley?”
Riley is gone. Death passed you by and took Riley instead the bond between you and Riley was tightly spun so much so life has been plucked from your body but I shall return it along with a gift for your loss
“You said it was a curse!”
Smart child you have the gift of seeing future
you have the gift of knowing how every person you meet will die
“What ? Why?”
We will never have the same problem again You are given the power to change it but Death is pretty Hard to cheat
I will leave you now it is time for you to go back
“Can I please see RIley before I go.”
I will grant you that
Wendy felt a release. The dark haired, brown eyed ,tan boy materialized in front of Wendy. Her heart dropped. The look in his eyes were of pure love and only that. He smiled but his eyes were wide with panic. He grabbed hold of her shoulders and mashed his lips againts hers. Her lips curved into a smile underneath his.
“Wendy I don’t have much time left. I love you so much , and I am so so sorry that our last conversation was a fight. But I love you . Make this a gift , and use it. So no one has to go the way I did and be ripped apart from their love. GO ! Now quickly before they change their minds!” Riley became transparent and began to float way as if he were smoke.
It is time
“What? Riley ! Come Back ! Please! I love you too , but what do you mean.”
She woke up to a room full of people .
No one ever realizes their last.
No one ever thinks this will be the last time I say the ,
or the last time that I blink,
or the last time that I breath.
But I do
The last is the end.
No more .
The moment I signal for those lights to come on is the last time that I will do it , ever.
The moments the lights fade out
and all of the actors take their bows
I’ll call the technicians up into the dark booth dimly lit by the blue ish lights , for the last time.
This is my last fall show and I will not Cry
