The crack of lightning wizzed by my ear as i trembled in fear, his wretched laughter echoed in my mind. "Giving up already?" he sneered. I looked at Valkoor, Chris, Jacob, and Somer, desperation gripping my heart. i closed my eyes, building strength from memories of my used to be life. Power built up inside me and i felt my hands glow in anticipation. "Never!" I roared.

The rain poured down on my head as I walked. I paid no attention to it since the tears in my eyes are burning my face. My heart felt like it was aching. Where am I? I asked myself. I felt as if this was unreal but I cannot be so unsure of myself. I looked around to see if anything seemed unusual. Nothing, of course. I sighed and looked up and darkness suddenly took grab of my eyes and I fell.
A sharp pain suddenly began in my head as I tried to get up. My vision returned and I saw a puppy was on me. It looked rather sad. "Are you ok little doggie?" I murmured to the dog, stroking its smooth gold and red fur. The dog didn't notice I said anything and put his nose on my leg and pushing me as If he was saying "Get up I need to show you something". I felt like I needed to so I got up and followed the dog. The dog seemed rather serious for a cute little dog.
Puppies usual are very playful and have so much energy. This one though seems very tired as if he was a zombie. The pup stopped in front of a school and then he turned his head towards me. I looked closer and gasped. It was my old elementary school, Richardsoning Elementary School. It looked as old as ever and the bricks had even more moss on it than I have ever seen it before. I looked and saw the little patio where I always did hopscotch when I was in kindergarten.
I took a deep breath and then gagged. The horrible scent was still there, moldy tacos mixed in yogurt. The dog barked impatiently and I hurried to him as he led me to a room. I already know what room it was before we even got there. I looked around and saw that they had name tags on them and I immediately began to remember everyone that was in here.
Ian, Damon, Emily, Charles, oh and I remember Becky! I thought and smiled as I saw my desk. I remember when the teacher got mad at me because I always stood up so she said "Glue your buns to your seat, I am trying to teach." I took that a little too seriously. I got the glue sticks and got them out of their stick and put it on my butt and I sat down.
When it was recess the teacher said why I am not out in recess. "Well you said I needed to be seated, so I glued myself to my seat" I said proudly. The teacher thought I was joking but when I tried standing up the chair went with me. The teacher, I think her name was Mrs. Thompson, got furious and called my parents for new pants. "Oh Katie that was an expression, you don't actually glue yourself to the chair." My mother laughed.
A bark woke me from my memory and I saw he was walking through all my classrooms. Why is this puppy doing this? I was about to actually ask it when we were in my fifth grade classroom but then, I don't know what happened, we ended up in my middle school Monticello Middle School. I did kind of like the place but I didn't do much there except meet, which is now one of my best friends, Jesus. Me and him had fun times together. We mostly hung out at lunch though since we had assigned seats at the time. That's when I couldn't see my best friend Somer much at school. When we first got our schedules, every year, we only got either one class together or none. We always complained and say we were going to change classes but we never did.
Again, the pup barked at me and I hurried to it to see where he was leading me. My eyes widened and I laughed a little. We were in the gym, my first dance, and Somer's too. I remember when she wore this beautiful small mini black dress, its velvet shining in the light. I wore also a black dress but it was very long, it was like a mini, black, wedding dress. I also wore black high heels with a rose on the toes. Somer's was also black high heels but they were pretty tall and she didn't tumble that much like I did.
I didn't have much experience in dressing up or wearing makeup so I had help from my sister Jessica. She always fussed that I blinked and usual quit trying to put it on me. That night though she was determined to get it on me now. The memories put a smile to my face.
Somer came to get me and her mom dropped us off at the front door of the school. I said thanks and we went off to the gym. There were lights everywhere! It was so bright and full of white lights it made me stare in awe. Everybody was wearing black and white. Some sparkly some were almost see-through top dress. The first thing we saw was the beautiful white roses on the tables with the snacks.
"Want to dance?" Kyle asked Somer. She stood opened mouth and looked at me her face saying "Should I?" I nodded, Kyle guided her to the dance floor as a slow song began to play. I sighed and sat on the chair, watching the lights flash. I knew no one was going to ask me so I decided to just listen to the music and watch Somer and Kyle and maybe grab a cup of punch. "Hey Katie?" I heard a voice call to me. I squinted against the light and saw Austin walking towards me. I stood up and greeted him with a wave. "Want to dance?" he smiled, making a motion to take my hand. My face turned a little red "Sure" I said in a breathless voice.
He took my hand and led me to the dance floor. Lucky me there was another slow song on. Austin put his hand on my sides and I put my hands on his shoulders and we swayed back and forth. "Love your dress" he complimented, a little surprised that I looked like an actual girl. I blushed "Thank you" I said, trying to keep my voice under control. "Your very welcome" he murmured, I set my head on his shoulder, taking in his warmth.
I have known Austin since I was in first grade and I had a little crush on him back then. We always hung out on recess and made little bark chip pizzas. When I think about it now it was pretty silly of doing that, but hey I was a kid. We always stayed close, especially during the summer. We always either go and play soccer in the fields or go to a park and just talk about random stuff.
Later on when we got older he seemed to get more awkward around me. "Hey why you being weird on me?" I asked when we just got back from spring break in fifth grade. "Oh nothing, nothing at all" he replied and looked at his watch "Oh dang! My mom going to be furious if I don't get to the parking lot!" Austin realized and sprinted to the front yard.
At the time Austin had broad shoulders and his voice was getting deeper than before. His hair was almost black like mine but maybe a little lighter than mine. His eyes were this forest deep green that reminded me of a beautiful jewel.
Ah those were the good old days of no worrying over big things. I was sad when he moved though. I sighed and stretched and started looking for the dog. I couldn't find it anywhere. I looked in every room and then I saw it in the playground under the slide where me and Austin used to make bark chip pizzas.
The puppy did a ferocious howl and grew bigger with flaming eyes. It sounded like it was saying my name I remarked. I suddenly felt wet and saw that my shirt was soaked. I was also in my silky pajamas."Katie! Katie! Wake up!" the dog said, its eyes turning into a muddy brown. It was looking at me with those flaming eyes barking "Katie! Wake up!" My vision faded as I went through a black vortex.
