They entered into the woods in silence, Norman looking around at the place where Aggy's body would lay finally in peace in the future.
He didn't say a thing but.
"The children were just playing," she said nervously, looking at him with a small smile, "I know they didn't mean it."
"Do you often get bullied?"
"Bullied… what does that mean?"
He became silent… not knowing how he could explain.
"Picked on, get pushed around."
"Oh yes… but it's not the children I'm afraid of… it's the adults."
With good reason…
But he didn't say.
He watched Aggy as she started to play with the dead ghost animals of the forest and smiled nervously of still being here.
She played with some deer that had been hunted probably sometime recent in her timeline and he watched as she patted the invisible translucent skin.
"Norman is a very strange name," she said with a bit of happiness, "I've never heard it before."
"It came from my mom."
"Mom? What's a mom…?"
"Mother," he responded quickly, "Mom is just… a nickname."
"I really shouldn't be doing this…" he said quietly to himself, looking at the confused girl he just saw staring back at him with lost eyes and worry and away from the deer finally, "aren't you gonna play?"
"I'm waiting for the ghost children to come."
He looked at her confused… did she always tell people what she was doing… did she not see the danger?
"Maybe you shouldn't talk like that, Agatha…"
"Why? What do you mean…?" she asked confused.
"People can't see what we see… it makes them scared."
"You see it too?"
Oh crap… what did he just say?
"Why do you wear such funny clothes?"
"My mom… buys them in a different area."
He was really screwing up his future now, wasn't he…?
He froze suddenly when he noticed the strange man in the distance… swallowing nervous… he was really in for it.
The man pointed at him hard, telling him to get away from her and Norman gave her a nervous smile saying, "I've really got to go."
"Oh…" Aggy said, getting upset, "So soon… but we… we just met?"
"I'm sorry," he muttered, not knowing what else to say and left in awkward steps as he walked quietly away.
"What are you doing?" the man yelled at him fast, pulling him away and Norman gasped shocked at his rough touch… he was not expecting that.
"Let me go!" he yelled fast… the man's hand holding tight to his wrists, "I was just being her friend! She needed it!"
"You are so foolish…" the man said and Norman started to freak as suddenly the past started to erase and he saw them walk forward but pulled quickly away.
The man looked at him annoyed.
"Come on, Norman."
"How are you doing that?"
The man looked around nervous. Norman examining him more closely… and how his power was so similar to his… he didn't understand…
What was it with this strange man… that made him so scared...
"Who are you?" he asked quietly,
The man looked at him
What did he say? Gah! But I think you already know ;D. Anyway, for once a quick update! Aren't you lucky! Bye!
