Hi guys! Well, I finally found the time to write another story for this book, it's one of my favorite books so I'm really excited for this story. It's going to be a chaptered story so I hope everyone enjoys it and hopefully we'll be able to get this category going!
The wind rustled her hair as she lay, her eyes closed, the small jagged grass around her. She could hear the singing of a robin in a blossoming apple tree near her; its white tiny flowers in the branches seeming to be from some sort of fairytale story, seeming to be an illusion of her imagination.
Daisy pulled her knees up a little so her knees were bent but her feet was still on the ground and she opened her eyes to see the clear blue sky above her, the white clouds created different shapes in the sky. Just as she was tracing Ding's bell in one of the clouds she felt fingers slip into her own. Turning her gaze to the left she was met by Edmond's bright eyes as he stared at her in an intensive gaze. He looked down at their intervened fingers and brought them up to his lips and soft grazed her fingertips along his lips.
Daisy watched him curiously as if waiting for what he might do next by he simply brought their hands down and she felt the green grass tickle the skin of her hand. They watched each other silently for a moment, before he suddenly gave her his little half-smile and titled his head to the side in that puppy-dog way of his. Daisy smiled at him and reached out her other hand to touch his face when a sudden ear splitting wail shattered the dream around her. She snapped her hand back and sat up in alarm and Edmond's face turned to panic as the bomb sirens blared for all around them.
Turn back to him Daisy was about to speak but found where Edmond had laid there was nothing and instead the grass around her had turned blackish and smoking and a few meters away she saw men, women, children lay dead and bleeding; some already having their skin torn off by black crows and vultures.
She called out for Edmond but all she got in return was the dead silence and the smell of smoke. She squinted and in the distance she saw the old house; her new family home in England, it's beautiful dream-like quality that had taken a hold of her since she first arrived here, was ablaze in fire; the entire house up in incredible flames-
Daisy shot up like a cork out her sleep. She sat here, breathing deeply in the silence of her dark bedroom for a few moments. The images of her own room were not registering in her mind as all she could see was the burning house and the dead people and Edward's panicked face. She just simply sat there, staring at the opposite wall while her heart raced a thousand miles per minute.
Whoa, she though to herself, calm down Daisy before you have a heart attack.
It took a couple of moments before she was brought back down to reality; and how she hated the real world. Well, as least the real world she was living in now; forced to live in now…
She jumped when a knock came on her door and she heard her father's whisper, "Daisy? Are you alright?"
Her bedroom door opened a small inch as her father peered inside before opening the door a little more. Daisy's throat and mouth were dry and she was worried if she spoke she might give too much of her nightmare away.
"What's going on? Why'd you scream?"
Daisy swallowed with difficulty, her throat tight, before she answered, "I didn't scream."
Her father frowned, looking momentarily worried, "you did. I thought you were being murdered or something…"
Daisy bit down on her tongue to stop the cutting remark she would give to that reply; well if I were being murdered then why the hell would you give an bloody damn? At least evil stepmother and her evil baby will be happy.
A sudden distance baby wail drifted to Daisy's ears as she heard the distance cry of her half-sibling. Oh just stuffing wonderful…
Davina the Diabolical suddenly popped her ugly head into the door way, dressed in her nightgown and a scowl snapped at Daisy, "Now look what you've done! You've woken my baby!"
"Oh boo-hoo!" Daisy muttered under her breath giving Davina the best death-glare that she was able to. Davina sniffed angrily before moving away and down towards her own child's room. Daisy watched as her father gave a heavy sigh before he slowly shuffled into her bedroom; he too was wearing pajamas. Daisy gave a small sullen expression as he sat down on her bed; he was the last person she wanted to look at at the present moment.
"Would you like to talk about it?" he said quietly, "your nightmare?"
Daisy stared at him for a moment. Maybe she hadn't heard him correctly, maybe she was still dreaming, or maybe all the food deprivation over the years had finally started affecting her by giving her hearing problems and making her delusional.
She did the most unexpected thing then; after a nightmare like this she wouldn't be able to sleep the rest of the night and she'd cry her little broken and bruised heart out until her eyes were so raw and red and her tear ducks had literally stopped producing the chemical so she could shed watery tears. Her father might as well sale her off to the New York City square so she can be used as a live water fountain.
But this time she burst into loud laughter. She couldn't help it; she had to laugh at her father's form of 'must-help-troubled-daughter' and the incredible answer she could give him! What could she mention first? The black crows eating people's flesh and describe every detail of the sickened scene to him until he managed to vomit (preferably all over Davina the Diabolical).
Or maybe she could tell him all about Edmond? What an explanation that would be!? Yeah, dad, guess what? Guess dad! In my dream Edmond was there. Oh, didn't I tell you about my blood-related cousin? Your nephew?! Yeah, he's the one that I'm in love with and guess what else dad?! I had sex with him so, so, so many times! Yep that's right, I had sex with a blood-related cousin! What do you think of that?!
She might as well make an appointment at the physic-ward at the hospital herself and chain herself to a bed if she told him about her dream.
Her father stared at her for a moment before Daisy calmed down and smiled sourly at him, "You had your chance to help me and you didn't. Now, please leave."
"I'm tried," Daisy said lowly, cutting off her father's sentence. She didn't want to hear his justification from taking her away from the only family that she had ever loved.
"You couldn't have stayed there; it was too dangerous. And besides, what was there really for you-"
"Get out!" Daisy suddenly screamed, putting her hands over her ears and pushing down. She couldn't handle this; not these words. He talked like he knew; he'd never know what he had done to her…
Without another word, her father rose from her bed and walked out of her room in a quick angry way and slammed her bedroom door shut a little heavier then he needed to. If she had been younger; maybe seven or eight she might have felt guilty for making him upset but at the moment she would carve out his eyeballs if she got the chance and make Davina the Diabolical and her stupid little ugly baby eat them for dinner (after she put poison in them of course).
She lay back down against her pillow and for the millionth time since she had arrived back in America she cried and cried and cried. It had been two years; two long bloody years and still nothing, her life remained empty. She remained empty.
