BEYOND A DREAM
"Alice, Oh Alice" soft yet firm words danced around the sunlit rose garden. I sat in the middle of it all, sipping slowly and uneasily on a finely brewed cup of black tea. There before me stood the man I had despised, but had slowly come to…love…! However, today his figure was, abnormally… awkward. Through his rigid smirk and dark, daring eyes, you could easily see the unease and trouble he failed to hide. His usual composure as well was, off. His form, though still smashing was, rare… Shoulders slumped, tie loosely hanging, and his infamous 'mad' hat sliding completely over his dark, mysterious eyes. However the one thing that was particularly 'off' was his usual pride. Instead of his conceited, proud, and controlling behaviour; today he was anxious, nervous, and most definitely not….normal (not that he ever really is.) In simpler words, you could say the man before me could never have been identified as the Mafia boss, well at least not today.
I looked up startled as I heard footsteps approach me, he now stood inches from my body, eyes burning my flesh as he held an un-breaking stare. "Why cant you just see? Why must you remain so clueless, it would be much simpler had you understood. Why cant you?" He snapped tongue clicking as if trying to figure out his next words. " Why do you have to be such a child? Can't you just put the pieces together yourself?" he snarled, venom seeping into his every word. I looked up in confusion and anger, but before I could speak he looked away. He mumbled a train of words under his breath. "Time, time, why must it almost be up, not much time, why?" he seemed very troubled and uneasy, so I held back my anger. His gaze was focused on the ground, hand on his chin, deep in thought. He turned once again to look at me, I could feel my cheeks heating as his eyes dug deep within my skin, making me feel very… open, naked….. He once again looked away, then he spoke, soft, almost cautious words… "Alice why cant you just, just, return my feelings?" he sighed taking a few steps forward, slowly inching away from me… Then he turned, so quick, so swift, so graceful, and yet so abrupt. Before I had a chance to make out what happened, his face was just mere centimetres away from my own….
His soft warm breath tickled my skin as he knelt down. Lips grazing my cheek as his soft hands clutched my hand, other caressing my back… "Alice, please don't go….." " I have many ways to entertain you, should you get bored…young lady." He spoke quietly, but in his final words his smirk returned, the usual air of confidence and amusement also returning. At those words I could feel my cheeks heat, but before I could speak, he did… a seriousness suddenly forming. "If you leave this world will result in chaos, havoc, and potential destruction" "However if you were to stay we could slowly resolve any problems… together….don't be the cause of our problems, be the solution, young lady." His voice was so arrogant, and yet so hypnotizing and persuading. NO! I need to get a hang of myself, what about big sister, if I stay I will never be able to see her again. I cant let him convince me to stay, as they all say this is a game, I cant let them win me over. "STOP IT!" I screamed, tears forming and warning to fall. There he stood, eyes wide, overcome by surprise. " This world cant be destroyed! It just cant be! Can it?" I spoke load and firm, yet unsure. No remember I must remember my sister… I cant let him get the better of me… "This is all just a dream, a way for me to feel loved, once I leave there will be nothing left, everything will disappear, and so will you!" I yelled at the top of my lungs. He stood there dumfounded, looking into open air. Tears flowed down my eyes uncontrollably, why would I make a dream that just hurts me? DREAM….A DREAM….? Is it? Was it? What about all my friends…was that fake too? What about goodbye? What about all the love? What will really happen? Will this all just disappear? What about….what about…blood….?
