June 20th, 2018 9:15 pm
Dear reader.. Whoever you are I’m glad you found this. I’m here to tell you about the real world. Let me start from the beginning...
This all started last night. I was sitting at my dining table eating some chips while watching some videos on my phone. That was a pretty normal thing for me to do, but yesterday felt.. different. After I finished my bag of chips my head started pounded and my stomach felt nauseous. I couldn’t comprehend anything since the pain was so severe. I simply got up and took some Pain killers, then I drank some water. I went to my room and laid down trying not to pay much attention to the pain. No matter how hard I tried to distract myself the pain just seemed to be getting worse by the second. I just closed my eyes and fell asleep.
It was 4:00 am. I had woke up to the weirdest dream. Or at least you can say it was a dream. I was standing in a white room with nothing Inside. Then another me dressed in all white walked up to me and gently grabbed my face. Then she said “Wake up and you shall see what the world is really like”.
Then she disappeared and everything faded to black. I just sat up in bed trying to understand what that dream meant! I repeated the words she said over and over until I couldn’t think straight anymore. I quickly turned on my lamp and looked around my room. Everything looked.. weird. Odd colors all around and I was starting to feel dizzy.
I slowly slid off my bed and could barely stand on my feet. I walked to the bathroom, Holding onto the walls to keep balance. Once I reached the bathroom I washed my face. I grabbed my towel and dried up my face. I looked into the mirror and froze. That version of me form the dream was standing behind me. She put her hand on my back and said “Don’t be afraid. I’m here to help you. Now that you’ve awaken, you should be careful.” And with blink of an eye.. she was gone. This meant something. I knew it did! This isn’t your average day, this Is an awakening to something new. I walked back to my bed room, starting to gain balance. Before I reach my bed, I collapse to the floor. I look up, slowly opening my eyes.. the color yellow everywhere. A dull.. baby yellow. Makes me.. feel happy. I get a flashback of me as a kid In my favorite yellow dress, standing in the mirror admiring it.
I blink fast, bringing my self back to what feels like reality. The real reality. The reality that no one else sees. This was a start of something new..
I begin to hear screaming and crying. I could hear the agony and it wouldn’t stop. I quickly stood up and opened the blinds. Everything looked different. Things were destroyed and dark. I saw a man dressed in all black, he had a hoodie and he was turned around. I couldn’t get a look at his face, so I did a dumb thing and started banging on the window, screaming “Hey! What is this place?! Can you help me?!” The man must have heard me because he turned around and met eyes with me. We stood there a few seconds before things started fading. Before everything was black the man held up a sign. It was difficult to read in the condition I was in, but the sign said “Opened eyes”
That’s when everything had went black. My name is Zoey Carter.. and I finally have made my way into the real world.
