Here is Chapter 4! Yay!
Disclaimer: Do I even have to say it?
"Cynthia!" I whispered/yelled.
"Open the door!" I was standing outside her room, in my night dress.
"Why?" She asked, sounding suspicious.
"Just open the door."
I heard her grumbling come closer, then the doorknob turned.
Cynthia opened the door and I laughed at her appearance.
Her hair resembled a bush and her eyes were droopy with sleep. Her nightgown was wrinkled. I looked back at myself, my long black hair perfectly brushed, my face washed, and my nightgown in pristine condition.
"Yes, Sister?" She made 'sister' sound like a dirty word.
"I have to tell you something. Quick close the door!" I scrambled to her bed and sat down, cross-legged. She crawled on in front of me, and her face looked expectant.
"I don't know how to exactly explain this…thing…I saw." I breathed out slowly.
"Whoa. So this is serious." She looked surprised.
"Of course it's serious!" I hissed. "Why else would I bug you in the middle of the night? You aren't exactly the nicest person when awoken."
"Anyways. I guess you could call what I saw…a vision? Of the future…" I said confused.
"What exactly did you see?"
"Ummm…Just someone in trouble. No need to worry." I said just a little bit too quickly.
Cynthia raised her eyebrows at me. "Why would I worry? Was it someone we knew? Were they hurt? Oh my gos-"
"Nothing! Nothing to worry about." My voice cracked at the end of the sentence, and I knew there was no way she would believe me.
"Alice. I know something's up. You are a skillful liar; Dad is putty in your hands, but not me. You can't fool me. Now tell me what happened."
I cringed. She was right. I was putty in her hands. I sighed, defeated.
"Fine. But you have to promise not to tell. Promise?" I asked sternly.
"Of course dear sister. By the sisters' law, I promise to keep secrets, secrets and promises kept until my dying day."
I laughed at the little pledge we had made years back.
"Ok then." I smiled my usual happy-go-lucky smile, but then remembering my vision, frowned.
"It…it was mom." I watched as she cringed.
"She was attacked. And…and…" I could not finish. And I was sure Cynthia knew what had happened.
I was twisting my fingers and I looked up when I heard sniffling. Cynthia was crying silently.
"Oh, Cynthia!" I pulled her into a hug and she sobbed into my shoulder.
In the back of my mind, I heard a voice say that she was going to ruin my night dress. I quickly slapped the voice away, disgusted.
"Shhh...Shhh…I won't let that happen, sis."
"Really?" She sniffled.
"Of course." I was crying straight through my lie. I could only hope she didn't catch me.
She slept in my tiny lap, and I stayed there and stroked her hair out of her face. I wished I hadn't told her. Now she would spend all her time worrying. Sometimes I thought she was a thirty-year old trapped in an eleven-year olds body. She was so mature.
I gently moved her head to her pillow, and tucked her in. then I tip-toed to my room and lied down on my bed. Careful not to wrinkle my night gown, I turned over and fell asleep.
Sorry for the shortness of this chapter. Plot should come soon, I promise.
I apologize for any typos, I am only human (-.-) so I can only try to catch em all.
Did anyone see the New Moon clips they showed at the Comic Con? Oh my goodness! So much hotness! If you haven't, and very much so want to, I can send them to you just ask in a review or PM :)
