A sting of suprise from a sudden greeting bolts me in my stomach as i looked up in a seemingly mystified way to empty space, an empty black chasm, an abyss.
“Am i dead?”
“No.” the voice replied
“But why? Why didnt…?”
“Why didnt what?” the voice now more vivid and childish.
“Why didnt… I die?” i asked in a calm, simple voice, so as not to cause unnecessary tonal issues with this person i could not see.
“You couldnt die. We wouldnt allow it.” The voice was now soothing, so much so that i was convinced i was talking to more than one person.
“Who is we?”
“We, your darkness. Your power and your helper. We couldnt lose the one we cared so much for.”
“Why is darkness helping me?
“Why were you helping us?” the childish voice returning.
Then there is a beam of light, and almost instantly, the frames appear. I saw only four. One, reminded me of someone i had met before. Back when i was younger. She was the exact image of her too. But the shadows covered the rest of her body. The second, was me. Me, myself and i. But he was nothing but darkness. His features sharpened by the faint brightness cast by the beam of light. The third, a boy, not too far from my age, that was also a body of darkness. And the fourth, a monster. Its arms as long as its entire body, which in itself was about 7 feet tall, or more. Then, the beam of light suddenly died out, and the girl spoke:
“Before we send you back, we want to thank you. If you hadnt stopped the bullet for her, you would have been in a deep sadness all over again. Just try not to do that too often alright?”
“Ummmmm… I suppose?”
“Hehe, good. It’s about time you woke up. Dont forget that we are here for you if you need us.”
“… I… Ok.”
Then, i heard someone shouting my name, and opened my eyes to her. The girl that had just warned me before. She was smiling, thanking God that i was ok. She helped me up and took me to an ambulance, which had appeared to be waiting for me.
Before i got inside, i turned and gave her a nice, strong hug, and said goodbye. I wanted to ask questions, but i wasnt feeling so great all the same. I just closed my eyes, and drifted off…
Into a dream.
