Something woke her up out of a dead sleep, her heart was pounding and her breath was fast and uneven. Looking around in the dark, she could make out the normal objects in the room, nothing out of place. The rumble of thunder could be heard in the distance, accompanied by the occasional flashes of lightening that briefly lit up the night. A storm was coming in.
What in the world could of woken me up? Not noticing anything abnormal, she layed back down and tried to go back to sleep. No sooner did her eyes start getting heavy, the jangle of the phone once again brought her upright. Looking at the clock it read 2:56 AM. Who the hell would be calling at almost three o’clock in the morning! Picking up the phone she grumpily answered “Hello?” The voice on the other end was warm and deep, strangely familiar. “It’s me..” He said “I’ve missed you” Not able to recognize the voice she had to ask “I’m sorry, but I don’t know who this is. And why are you calling at this hour? Do you have any idea what time it is?!” He chuckled softly. “I am a ghost from your past, one you promised you would never forget. Did you forget?” A chill went through her body and her hands began to shake. Slamming the phone down on the receiver, she jumped out of bed and pulled the phone cord out of the wall. Not again.. No, not again! Reaching for the bedside lamp she switched it on, but nothing happening. CRAP!! No power! Quickly moving across the room to her dresser, she opened the top drawer and felt for the flashlight. Finding it she wrapped her fingers around it and went to switch it on. Nothing. Damnit! I forgot to change the freakin batteries! Standing as still as she could she did her best to calm herself, taking deep even breaths. In and out, in and out. Ok. I’ve got this.
SNAP. It came from right outside the window, a twig perhaps being stepped on by a wandering deer. Working her way back to the bed, she crawled to the middle and held herself in a tight ball. Putting her head down on her knees she closed her eyes and prayed for help. Noticing the sudden drop in temperature, she picked her head up.. Doing her best to hold back the scream that was at the moment, threatening to strangle her, a transparent green mist was forming in the doorway of her bedroom. Pushing herself back to the top of the bed, a soft wimper escaped from her lips. As the mist started taking shape it’s voice filled her room.
“Do you remember me now?”
