Hey guys. I'm SOOOOOO SORRY about the wait, but I've been sick and my laptop freaked out on me which made it shut down before I could save causing me to lose 2,000 words that took me three days straight to write.
Plus I have softball conditioning now, which means after school I have to go on a 30 minute bus ride to get to conditioning. Conditioning ends an hour and a half later! Then I still have an hour of homework to do. Sorry, excuse my rant. Anyway, thanks for the reviews, they make my day. Here's a shout-out to my amazing reviewers:
Whisper13: No, that's not a bad thing. At least, I don't think it is.
EmptyThoughts: :) cookies…:P
Annalease: Thanks :)
independentwriter-137: Thanks for the OC. I'll probably use it in the story, but in a few chapters. I love your stories by the way. And it will be a while until I write who killed who.
MissGleekKoleTigerBabe: I hope you like this chapter :)
Minimum Glide: Sorry for this being confusing but I need it to be a bit vague so I can fill in the gaps in later chapters.
Ammythegreat1: Thanks :) What a lovely friend your OC has :P
Millie85998: Thanks for the OC! Can you give me a name and be a bit more specific on how she died?
musikfreakmeg: Yeah I know. I finished reading it and started to write this. Don't worry it won't be exactly the same it just has the same idea. Thanks for telling me.
: Thanks fall!
And thank you to everyone who has recently favorite/alerted me/this story: RavenHybrid, BirdKidKirby, Ammythegreat1, CrazyStorywriter, Sammy700, Minimum Glide, MissGleekKoleTigerBabe, RiseToTheSkies, independentwriter-137, lemonadeice1, Slightlysane443, LovingFinnick, fictionalmayhem, and Annalease, you guys are awesome :) Remember, OC's are appreciated. And if anyone knows a Beta Reader that is really good, please PM me. Also I have been told that this is relatively the same as the book Between by Jessica Warman, that is true and it will not be the same as that it just has the same idea of Max waking up and finding herself dead. Now here's my cousin, Adam, with the disclaimer:
Adam: No, just no.
I opened my eyes and I tried to blink away the fuzziness. I looked to my left to see Fang still smirking. I was too shocked to be annoyed with him.
"You're Fang?" I asked, because even though I already knew it was true, I didn't want to except that my ex-best friend is here with me. And he's dead.
"In the spirit." He said, doing what? If you guessed smirking you got it right. If you guessed anything that isn't smirking, well then you're slow.
"But-" I started when I felt blood rushing to my head, "I think I'm going to be sick."
I stumbled back until my back hit the tree. I looked up into my dead eyes again and wished I wasn't dead so that I could puke my guts out.
"You'll get used to it."
I looked up at Fang who was standing where he had been before my random dizziness. I gave him a questioning look. He sighed and walked over to me, offering his hand.
"I used to feel this burning sensation all the time when I first died," he said while pulling me to my feet, "I was trapped in a burning building, I eventually kicked down a door but then everything exploded."
"I-I'm sorry that happened," I whispered after a minute or so.
"Not your fault," he said looking into my eyes without a hint of that stupid smirk on his face, "Come on, I want you to meet some other spirits that died with me in the explosion."
He led me by the hand into the forest. I noticed that I couldn't feel his hand; it was more like I was holding onto water. I don't think I will ever get used to this being dead thing. I just can't believe my life is over, I mean, I had so many plans for the future. I was going to graduate high school, get married, have children, go to college, and become a pilot. Why is the world so cruel-?
I looked up and saw four spirit-like-people jumping out of trees. I guess I zoned out for a while.
"Hi Fang!" a chirpy, familiar looking, dark haired, dark skinned girl said, "We were soooooooooo worried when you didn't come back after a while. We thought maybe an Eraser caught you or something! Erasers are so mean, they just want to mdsfijs."
Her rant was cut off by a pale hand. They person it was attached to was a really tall boy with spiky blonde hair and light blue eyes.
I saw Fang mouth a thank you to the blonde haired guy, who in return gave him a questioning glance, nodding in my direction.
Fang cleared his throat, "Um guys, this is Max. She was the one who screamed earlier."
Everyone's mouth's dropped open in shock. They all simultaneously turned towards me. The dark skinned girl spoke first, "Max? Is, is that really you?"
I nodded, confused as to why they were all so shocked.
"You don't remember us, do you?"
I shook my head slowly, a weird guilty feeling washing over me, "I'm sorry, I don't."
The blonde haired boy looked at me and spoke, "How about we remind you. I'm James, but you used to call me Iggy because you couldn't pronounce Icky."
"And I'm Monique," the dark skinned girl said, "But everyone calls me Nudge for some odd reason."
"I'm Zephyr," a little blond boy to the right of Iggy said, "But everyone calls me Gazzy for my digestion issues."
I felt something pulling on my shirt. I looked down to see an adorable little blonde girl with blue eyes staring up at me, "Please remember me Maxie."
That's when it all clicked, "I could never forget you, Angel."
She smiled a 10,000 watt smile at me and jumped into my arms, "I knew you'd remember us! I just knew it!"
I smiled as I hugged her with all my might. I looked over at the rest of them; they all had smiles on their faces too.
"Group hug!" Iggy shouted as he ran to put his arms around Angel and me.
Everyone joined in, chuckling slightly, even Fang joined in for the reunion. I couldn't believe I had forgotten about them. I don't even remember how we stopped being friends. But that doesn't matter anymore; I was with my Flock now, and, even though I was dead, I couldn't be happier.
I finally finished! Woohoo! Again I'm sorry this took so long, I've been out of inspiration. I still need a few more OC's until I can start writing out the rest of this. I can't promise anything about when I will update but I promise I WILL update. Reviews make me smile :)!
