  1. From the moment I saw him I knew there was something different about him. Not just by his looks; he had longish white hair- at first I thought to be dyed, but then found out it to be natural- and his soulless grey eyes. No, not by that. Arched backed, bent legged; for him this was standing straight. His eyes seemed to be distant, and when he looked you in the eyes, he seemed to be seeing right through you; once, I think to be the only time, he closed his eyes to think the situation through. He sat crossed legged on his chair. Helped him think, Chase had told me. Some people question; some people laugh. Some people just don't understand. I know not why of this strange behavior from such a smart person. Most people don't either. But, from the moment I saw him, across the school corridor, I knew a great, sweet, wonderful friendship was about to accrue, one of which would be filled with many secrets, lies and dark paths. He, my friends, was known as a boy called Alex...
  2. On his own. He was always like that. Nobody wanted to go near him. Not even the other weird, physo people that go to this school. He sat, cross legged- like always- at the back of the canteen, picking at his chocolate bar. He was- I think- staring at the canteen door where all of the students poured in and out, lining up to get their lunch or chatting while walking with their friends on their way out to the yard. There was something in his eyes that seemed hopeless, like if everything he had ever loved and rejoyced had gone. Like if he had realised that, while all of these happy, smiling faced were talking and laughing with their friends, he would be stuck by himself, hated by everyone. But, I think he must have realised that a while ago. I myself wanted to go over and comfort him, but there again, I didn't want to leave my own friends. Casey was laughing her head off while wrapped up in Erik's arms. Casey and Erik were almost like twins, though they were dating. Both had madish red hair and bright green eyes, and both were as funny as clowns. Erik had recently been to Japan, and they were all laughing at the tattoo that he had done on his abbs; it was 'Every Rose Has It's Thorns' is Japanese. Chase was laughing as well across from then, once in a while nudging me to laugh as well. I and Chase had been friends for ages, and- sometimes I swear- are brains must be connected some way; we think the same thing 24/7. Chase was the kindest person I knew; even his face had the word 'Kind' written all over it. His blue eyes were always soft and loving when he faced anyone/thing. His longish, dyed purple hair always fell, giving his face the edge of understanding. He knew everyone's problems, and knew how to solve them. But, in classes, he wasn't such a smart-alec!
  3. "Hey, Liz, what do you think?" I turned and looked into Erik's green eyes. I had no idea what we had been talking about. I was too busy wondering about that Alex kid. I turned back and looked at where he was sat to kind the table full with the jocks and preps, and no weirdo kid. I shrugged and tried to answer Erik. "Er..." I suttered. Chase- obviously- knew I was struggling to answer, and started talking. "So, I agree with Casey. You two should go on a date if you're dating. I mean, you can't be a lame couple who are boring, not doing anything fun together. You should go out for a meal, or the movies, or-" Casey, just wanting to own her boyfriend, intruped Chase's babble of suggestions and poked Erik in the cheek. "Way! See, I'm sure Liz agrees, don't you Liz?" They all turned to be again. I just nodded. Of course they should go out for a date; who wouldn't?
  4. Casey smiled, but then picked up her bag and started to skip off. She only got to the end of the table before she was stopped by Erik wrapping his arms around her waste and him whispering something into her ear; something sweet and funny- I guessed- since Casey laughed. I rolled my eyes at them and started to walk towards the exit of the canteen to go outside with Chase following behind me. "Well, we should just leave them, you know..." Chase said as we walked. I slightly laughed. "T.T.S!" I said back, and he started to chuckle. Since we always think the same thing, everything one of us says something- which is mostly Chase- and the other- me- thinks the same, we say 'T.T.S!' (Thought The Same!) We walked outside and onto the yard. It was a late Autumn's day, and the leaves of the oak trees around the field were falling down like the rain that had just passed the day before. The air was still humid from it, but, because of the no-wind atmosphere, it was quite a nice day. I and Chase started towards our usual spot: a sheltered space under the roots of the biggest oak tree around. It was in a dark corner of the field, and nobody came around it because, apparently, a guy, ten years ago, was found hung there. Apparently he had black emo hair and soulless grey eyes. We didn't really believe this space was haunted; nor did we believe that we would be cursed by staying under the shelter of the giant roots.
  5. "So then, Liz, what did you do over the weekend?" Chase asked me. For once- well, at least in a while- I and Chase were finally alone. Erik and Casey had always hung out with us. But, since Erik asked Casey out, things have been a bit quieter. "Nothing much... Just stayed in my room, pretending that my mum and dad weren't fighting, and that my brother wasn't flirting with his girlfriend over the phone..." I said, slouching against the roots. Chase chuckled. "Yea... Bit crazy; your brother dating my sister... Creppy; if they get married we'd be related! Scary!" Chase said. God, I swear he read my mind! I just opened my mouth to say "T.T.S!" when there was a shout from the other side of the field. We both looked up to see Casey running over, bursing in tears. I got up and ran towards her. "What's the matter?" I asked. She was too much in tears to answer. Chase, who had followed me, hugged her. I was kinda worried when Casey started crying on Chase's shoulder. This must have meant that either Erik had dumped her- which wasn't likely- or something bad had happened. "Case, where's Erik?" I asked, only to get more tears from her. Something bad must have happened to Erik!
  6. AN HOUR LATER... Casey was still crying. I was still in shock. So was Chase. Neither I nor Chase suspected this. Erik was lying there, in the hopsital bed, eyes closed, as still as an empty room. Dead? No; just asleep. Apparently- according to Casey- he just fell, blood tricklying from his mouth. Doctors say he's had a heart attack or a stroke. Funny thing is- I think- something like that just don't happen to healthy, fit teenage boy. By the look on Chase, who was still wearing his stained, still being stained top, since Casey wouldn't stop crying on his should, he thought the same as me. I, Casey and Chase were with him as friends, since he had no kin (he's from a care home) for when he wakes up. The room was empty apart from I, Chase and Casey, sometimes the odd nurse or doctor. The room was silent apart from the beep-beep, beep-beep of the heart monitor and the crying of Casey. Chase wouldn't dare tell her to move; he was too kind; though it was a bit awkward that the person Casey was going out with was lying in the bed a meter away from them. God knows where Casey got all of her tears from, but she wouldn't stop crying. Chase's top was more than wet; people would believe he's just gone swimming in it! I didn't do anything; I couldn't! I didn't know what to say, or do, apart from stare at my asleep friend's face, hoping he would wake up sometime...
  7. Hours passed before Casey managed to stop crying. She decided to leave Chase alone; Chase silently let out a sigh of relieve. Casey sat down next to Erik, holding his hand, and, with one look and no words, told us to leave to leave the room. I and Chase walked out; once in the corridor, Chase was embarrised that everyone was looking over to us. "Bet they think I've been swimming..." he whispered to be as we started to walk towards the canteen. "T.T.S!" I whispered back. We soon got down to the canteen and got a table by the window. It was starting to get dark outside, and I and Chase would have to go home. Casey was aloud to stay- I'm not to sure if she's luck (to stay with our friend) or unlucky (uncomfotable hospital bed >:D) The tension between I and Chase was high; none of us really wanted to speak. I got out my IPod and plugged myself into Green Day, Boulevard Of Broken Dreams (listening to it now!) It played through once, but then I decided to turn my music off. I turned to Chase and sighed. "I hope Erik's ok..." I mumbled. Chase nodded as well. "Yea... Poor dude. It's kinda strange that; just fainted in the middle of the corridor. Not really something a teen does, it it?" I really wanted to reply with "T.T.S!" but I didn't. Something like this was too just happen. If this was caused by a human, then they didn't plan it out good enough... In less they wanted us to suspect that...
  8. I turned off my lamp and snuggled down in my bed. Something strange was happening. I had left the hospital an hour before with Chase, who dropped me off home. It was about 10ish now, and I just wanted to sleep. But, the questions kept flying through my head. What happened to Erik? Is it possible for a human to do this to someone? Was it just a fit? I just wished that Erik would wake up so that I could ask him what he knew. He had been acting a bit weird since he came back from his trip to Japan, but I didn't really notice that much. I had been too busy wondering about the new kid, Alex. He's so different; some people say he's a kid genius, or something. Some say he's inhuman... But, with a tired mind, I couldn't make any links. I closed my eyes and fell into a deep sleep, one filled with the answers to all of my questions......
  9. When I woke up I couldn't remember a thing. "Damn it!" I mumbled to myself as I got out of bed. I'd have to try and remember as I went to school. Time flew by, and soon I found myself sat next to Chase in his Land Rover. Well, it's his brother's, but he didn't like to say that. "Erik's woke up... Apparently he's got a small case of amnesia and can only remember two days ago, nothing of yesterday. And half of his trip's flew out of the window. Like someone was trying to sweep his mind. Strange..." Chase said as he turned the corner at the end of my road. "Yea..." I mumbled back. i wasn't really in the mood for thinking about how happy I was that Erik was ok, or about how Erik was. I was thinking about Alex again. There was something that made me think him not weird, but not normal either. Something that, when we got to our first lesson, made me try and sit as close to him as possible. Chase was slightly confused by this, but when along with it. Though my tries to talk to Alex, it was quite impossible, since he never looked up to me; just sat crossed legged in his chair looking at his amazing picture of an anime girl holding a rose. "Wow, that's a good drawing..." I commented to him, turning around while the teacher left the room. He didn't look up, as if he hadn't heard me. "Hello, Alex, is it?" Still no responce. "Liz, you're surpose to be helping me!" Chase said, tugging me to come back. I rolled my eyes and turned back to the front and looked at Chase. For some reason, his face looked like he was saying, 'don't talk to him...' What was he trying to say? Was he suggesting that he thinks that Alex was the one who hurt Erik?
  10. The school day went fast and soon, due to bad luck, I was walking home alone. Chase had gone to the hospital. Now that Erik was awake, he was only aloud three visiters; Casey, Chase and Erik's careworker... So, I'd have to go tommorow. It was quite peaceful walking home alone. There was no wind, no sounds at all. Some would find it creepy; I didn't. I was thinking to myself the whole situation through. Erik had been attacked- I thought- and someone was to blaim. Chase, who always thought the same as me, might have been suggestion for me not to talk to Alex, because he was a danger. Plus, Erik had forgotten all about yesterday and half of his holiday. Might he have met someone on holiday, who he also saw yesterday, who wanted him to forget something that happened over his holiday in Japan. Well, the only people he saw yesterday was I, Casey, Chase and Alex. Alex had bumped into Erik accidentally yesterday, and Erik seemed quite disturbed because of it. Might Erik have met Alex over the holidays, and remembered something that happened? Or might Erik made that face because of the fact that Alex was a creep? I didn't know... But, it all pointed to Alex. I'd have to get close to Alex, become his friend. Or maybe, even closer...
  11. The street was empty, as far as I knew, and I was only three blocks from my house. Finally peace in this mad world; for now. I knew as soon as I got home I would be faced with the shouting and screaming of my mum and dad. I wish they'd just get a life and split, or just get alone. I don't even know what they're arguing about; half of me thinks they don't either! But, at least I was alone now. Maybe God saw that I needed peace, and left me alone to- What was that? I swear, a hand touched my shoulder. Must have been Chase, or someone like that. I turned around smiling, expecting one of my friends smiling faces. Instead, I came face to face with... nothing. Maybe it was just one of the autunm leaves falling from the trees on the edge of the pavement. I shrugged my shoulders and continued anyway. I was still alone- thank God- though, even from the few streets I had to walk, I could hear the shouting of my mum. Great! I'd be stuck all night with nothing to do apart from listen to mu- Ok, maybe I wasn't alone. There was a passage way across the road from me, and, stood in the entrance, in the shadows, was someone else. It was none of my business who they were, and didn't intend to look over. But, something deep inside of me told me to look over. It was too strong- though I tried- to ignore, and turned my head over towards the alley. He- I guessed it was a he- was really shadowed, so much that The only thing I could make out was his dark grey hoodie and his black, emo style hair...
  12. "Right..." I muttered to myself. It was just a random dude who I knew nothing about. He didn't seem special in any way, and there was no point trying to ask him his name or anything like that. I was just about to turn my head back the way I was walking when he looked up and too me. His eyes stared me down, piercing my soul with their greyness. They caught my attention so much that I hadn't realised I had stopped walking. There was so beautifully dangerous that it felt like my whole body was melting into the ground. I felt like I was dying; like if all light in the world had gone. I didn't feel like dreaming or having ambitions. It felt like all my happy memories had gone. But, then I realised, it was just a random dude who was staring at me; not a bloody Dementor. I broke eye contact and started walking again, slightly embarrised by the whole experiance. Who was he?
  13. The shouting soon came closer, and I knew I was stood outside my house. My hand rested on the gate. If I waslked in now; like I alsways did; I would have to go straight to my room and be stuck all night listening to music. But, I could just go somewhere else. I could go to the hospital and visit Erik- but that would mean that someone would have to go. Maybe Erik's careworker had already gone? But, Chase would have called me... Maybe Chase, or maybe even Casey, would be kind enough to leave the room while I said hi to Erik, and asked him a few questions about what happened to him. Yea, I'm sure Chase would do that for me. I would do that for him! But, at that thought of turning around to walk to the bus stop, something sweap across my shoulder. In a flash, I turned around to come, again, face to face with nothing. Not even a friendly leave could be blamed for this; there were none around for a couple of blocks. Maybe it was just the wind? Maybe it was my imagenation? Maybe I was going mad? Maybe it was a ghost...?
  14. CRASH! I turned back and looked towards my house. The place was now silent, and the shouting had stopped. Someone had knocked the other out. My God, I hope it wasn't my dad who was lying on the floor. I loved my dad- and I know it's wrong- more than my mum. She was always mean to me, and life at my house was alwasy unfair. I opened the gate and ran towards the house and ran into the living room (after forgetting to open the door and running flat into it, but then opened it). When I entered, I was surpriced to find nobody there. Well, except for my mum lying on the floor, blood coming from her mouth. Dad was nowhere to be found. I sighed and knelt next to Mum. "God, what's happened now?" I asked her, though I knew she couldn't answer. I soon decided to call an ambulance, and say that Mum fainted, or something. I took my mobile out only to find it had no signal. Great! The house phone was down as well; some strom in the night or something. I better try at least talk to Dad and ask him to use his phone. I walked upstairs, downstairs, to the back of the house, to his room, to the garage- everywhere to be in fact. He was nowhere. "I bet he's gone to Fish and Ships," I muttered to myself. Dad always liked to go to the bar with his friends. Funny, didn't see him leave. I looked back at my mobile to find- stood in Dad's room- that I had a signel. Well, I guessed the first person to call was 999.
  15. I put the phone down after the woman said the ambulance would be coming. I sighed, and decided to call Jake, my big brother. He was probaly on a date with Hannah, Chase's big sister. I called him mobile. It run for a moment, but then the annoyed Jake picked up. "Liz, not now! I was just about to kis-" I started yelling at him. "I don't care, Jake! Mum's on the floor, like Erik fell. Dad's not here; just disapeared, or something. Can you come back please. Mum's going to hospital..." Jack was silent for a moment, but then sighed. "Fine then, Liz, but you're going to pay for interupting my first kiss with the girl of my dreams..." I could tell that Jack was flirting with Hannah, even though he was talking to me. "Right, the ambulance should be coming"-the sound of sirens came from outside-"about now! Hurry to the hospital. Bring Hannah; Chase it at the hospital with Erik..." Jack hung up without any 'goodbyes' or 'oks'. I put my phone in my pocket and went downstairs to greet the paramedics...
  16. The hospital room where my mum was was quiet. It was a lot like when I was with Erik, except for there was no crying from Casey, who was still with Erik a couple of rooms away. Mum was still knocked out; doctors are wondering about how this happened. I couldn't contact Dad. His mobile's off... I rang the pub, but the landlord said he wasn't there. To be honest, I wanted to go and visit Erik and my other friends, but part of me didn't want to leave Mum. Knock-Knock... I looked up to see Chase at the door. I smiled as he walked in. "Hey, Liz! You ok?" he asked as he took a seat next to me. I nodded and slightly smiled. "So, what happened to you mum? Apparently she was found like Erik had fell, or something. Rumors going around the hospital..." I nodded, agreeing with him. I didn't really feel like talking. I was still slightly freaked out about what happened on my way home. "Well, creepy things been happening... Anyway, have you seen Jack? He said he was going down to the canteen with Hannah, but he's been down their for four hours. It doesn't take four hours to drink a coff-" Just before I could finish, Jakes walked in, smiling. "Ka-ching! Finally got some lip action out of your sister, Chase! God, you'd wish you're not related, then maybe you could have that goddess!" Chase rolled his eyes at this. "T.T.S!" I whispered to him. God, Jack- when he wasn't rocking out on his electric guitar in his room- was the most annoying person I knew.
  17. After much talking with Jack- who decided to be sencible and look after Mum- I and Chase went over to Erik's room. His careworker had gone home, so I could visit now. I walked in to find Erik lying on his bed, awake, with Casey asleep with her head rested on the bed next to him. "Hey, Erik!" I said as I walked in. He smiled as I sat on a chair next to him. Chase had gone down to the canteen to grab a coffee and talk to his sister. "So, how are you?" I asked. "Better... I'm still really confused though; can't remember a thing!!!" he laughed. I smiled at him. At least he seemed to be back to his old self. "So, you can't remember anything... Try to remember what happened the other day. I need to know..." I said. I could see that Erik was trying to think, but he was still confused. "I'm sorry, Liz; nothing at all!" I sighed and looked across to Casey. "She's been asleep for hours. Cried herself too much when I was out... Was she really that bad?" Erik asked. "Well, I guess... You know Chase's best hoodie? Well,"-Erik nodded-"he's going to have to bin it." Erik laughted at this. "She wouldn't stop huggin me before. I swear she almost kissed me... I want to make that first move! Glad she didn't... Do you reckon- when I get out of here- I should take her on a date, and make a move?" he asked. I nodded. "Yea! It's every girl's dream to go on an amzing date with their dream guy! She'll love it; I can tell!" Erik smiled at this, and looked at the sleeping Casey...
  18. When Jack took Chase home, and we had finally got home as well, we both went to bed, since it was late. Dad was still not home; I was starting to worry. I went to bed feeling slightly sick. I was still wondering about what happened to Erik. I wasn't AS worried about Mum, because there was the possibility that Dad knocked her out. Alex was still on the top of my suspect list of what happened to Erik. But, how could he do that? It's just so inhuman! Not possible... maybe Erik DID just faint, or something... But, why would he forget everything that happened over his holiday? It makes some sense that he forgot the same day he fell, but, his holiday as well? It doesn't make sense at all... I guessed Chase was thinking the same thing as me. Erik was clueless; Casey was just too worried about Erik to realise anything. Also, I was still wondering who that mystery guy that I had saw was, and why I kept feeling someone touching my shoulder. Was he the ghost of the Hanging Emo? Was he haunting me for the fact that I use his tree for a hangout? Or, was it just me imagining things? Was I going mad? Well, I certanly didn't know! I'd guess I'd have to go to sleep and work this out overnight...
  19. "It's Dean Mauro, Dean Mauro. He's the guy who's after you. Run, dear child, run for your life. Run away from him at night. Over the hillside, over the land. Get away, my darling, as far as you can. It's Dean Mauro, Dean Mauro. He's the guy who's after you."
