“See this paper?”

“Uh, yes. You’re holding it an inch from my face.”

“It represents your life.”

“Uh, okay.”

He tore it in two.

“Oh, puh-lease. What could¬†someone like¬†you ever do to¬†me?¬†I won’t be seeing you around, especially after that little show you just put on.”

“You’re going to regret this. I swear on my¬†life.”

“Mmm. Then you better have your coffin ready.”



Part One

“Izabel!¬†Slow down!¬†You’re¬†going to fall!”

“Better fallen off a bridge then fallen at her hands.”

“Oh, puh-lease. You know those were empty threats.”

“From¬†him,¬†yes. But not from her.”

“Oh,¬†my dahlings! I’m pleased to see how highly you think of me!”

I stop in my tracks, and look at the woman standing in front of me. Her ghostly beauty radiateds so powerfully I can feel the sense of death.

“L-layla?” I call. I want to look for her, but I am scared to turn my back on this woman.

“Oh, my dear,¬†Layla has no part in this game.”

My hands trembled at my waist. I start to take a step back, but then stop.¬†‘Your Izabel Silver.’¬†I tell myself, It’s going to take more than one ghost demon lady to stop you.

“I’d be¬†more¬†than happy to call some of my friends, if that’s what you desire, dear.”

“No, haven’t you heard? Three’s a crowd.”

She throws back her head and chuckles.

“Well, we wouldn’t want to exceed the player limit.”

“Most people are cowering in fear by now. I still have a job to do, but I’m not bored of this game yet. You’re coming with me.”

And with that statement, two pairs of beautiful black wings fold out from behind her.

“Why do you need those? You can just think wherever you want to be.”

“Haven’t¬†you heard? Exits¬†are everything.”

She grabs my by the waist and soars into the sky.

“Where are we going?”

“Patience, darling. You better like it, because it’s the last place you’re going to see.”

This has to go beyond him and all his schemes. Bur what could it be?


How do you like my new story so far? Did you think Izabel’s dialouge¬†was confusing, or out of character?¬†Comment your opinion!

“Well, don’t make it a habit.”

‘Mommy, he’s saying I don’t exist again!’

“Me neither. We can tell your Mommy about it when we get home.”

“I miss–“

“Marcoe! What did I tell you about talking to “nobody”? Leave the class, now!”

“Mar-coe¬†has an imaginary girlfriend! Oooh!”

“I do not! Stop making those kissy noises!”

‘Fine.’

“Take your rose back! How could you?”

“Carmen, please, you’ve got to-“

“I don’t ‘got to’ anything.

“Fine. But keep the rose. It’s burned.”

“I want it to remind you of how our love ended: up in flames, down to ashes.”

“Mommy must have put the wrong¬†DVD in the case again. Hey, what’s going on with the screen?”

“I don’t kn-“

“AAAAAH!”

“Smile.”

“Mm-mm.”

“Fine. Let’s just get you to the nurse’s office so we can call your mom to take you to the dentist.”

“Rudy, I don’t want to go to the dentist!”

“But he’ll help make your mouth feel better.”

Oh, you definitely will.

“I’m sure you’ll be able to.”

“Mommy, hide me!”

“Marc, what is it?”

“That man is the dentist from my nightmare last night!”

“Don’t be silly, Marc. A dream is a dream, and yours was just a bad one.”

‘Mommy, he wasn’t supposed to see that. I really think we should stop.’

‘Not an option. We’re too far in.’

“Mom, can we go look at the lions?”

“Sure, you can look while I go get us ice cream.”

“Make sure to buy one for Rudy, too!

“Marcoe, we don’t have money to waste like… fine. What flavor does she want?”

“Chocolate with brownie, just like me.”

“Rudy, what’s your favorite part of a lion?”

“I love their mane.”

“I like the baby lions.”

“C’mon, Marc, let’s go back. I bet your Mommy has our ice cream now.”

“MARCOE TROYE RICHMOND. Get over here this INSTANT.”

“Yes, Mommy.”

“Why in the world did you call that the LION escaped?”

“Ir did! It chased us! Right, Rudy?”

“Marcoe, Rudy is IMAGINARY. And if you “playing” with her causes you to call lion, then stop thinking about her.”

“Ahh! Rudy, help me!”

“What’s wrong?”

“That’s the dentist! The one from my nightmare!”

“Your nightmares stay in your head. Plus, I’m here. I’ll keep you safe.”

“I’m still scared.”

“Maybe some computer time will make you forget. Come on, let’s go.”

‘Mom. We need stop. It’s finished. ‘

‘No! If you won’t tell me what to do, then I’ll do it on my own.’

‘No. No. NO! MOM, No! I’ll keep doing it! No!’
