Watching my fellow classmates chatter amongst themselves at the café they agreed to meet at, I listen as they exchange simple small talk. I am not particularly friends with them, more like acquaintances. To be honest I was kinda dragged along..
Evelyn focuses her attention on me, her bring golden pensive eyes observing me.
'I'm fine Evelyn!' she constantly worries about me!
'Are you sure...?' she replies aware of my condition.
'my heart is fine honestly!' I say waving my hands gesturing I am fine. The group of 5 suddenly focus their attention on me, I start to feel slightly nervous, but they soon return to their previous conversation.
*sigh* I take a breath of relief. I hate being bombarded with questions! I cannot be bothered explaining today, I am sure they are somewhat aware anyway.
I listened as they talk about the drinks each had just ordered from the café. I set my gaze on an unoccupied table in the living realm, those ghost look cute together, it does get annoying seeing them all the time though. I sat there dazed.
'I want to try!' the person next to me immediately got up startling me to reach for the cup diagonal across the table that she wanted to try.
Reaching over she knocked over my glass. Taken by surprise I tried to quickly grab it but was unable to reach in time as it shattered on the table, the small pieces landed on me!
There was a silence in the group as they noticed I had been injured. I stare down at my middle finger that was slightly drawing out blood 'oh no.' I need to quickly cover this up, panicking and shaking unable to grab my medical bandages from my handbag. Dammit stop shaking!
'Evelyn!' I shakily say as she is already hastily making her way over to me.
'Come with me!" she grabs my wrist and pulls me up quickly leading me towards the toilet in a rushed manner.
'Dammit!' Evelyn exclaims which proceeding to wrap my finger. I need to inject myself quickly! I grab my special injection from my bag "OUCH!" as a stab it into my left arm.
'Mocha you need to stay strong' she grabs me as a fall on my knees.
This never is easy, it hurts! Gritting my teeth together and tugging on my chest. 'I can't breathe' I pant starting to get hot with pain radiating from my chest.
My heart starts pumping faster as the pain increases. I need to do this to stay alive! My heartbeat begins to drown the sound of everything around me. I need to calm down.. I’ll go into shock if I don't!
'They are here! You need to look normal' with a serious look she stands me up, bringing me back to reality as we peek out of the girl's toilets.
Shit they already got the signal? Watching the large male figured in his suit walking into the café his presence noticeable through the cafe.
'Man, their appearance is gross...'
'what do you mean?' staring at the business looking man 'he is a grim reaper' I replied, 'he may look normal to you but what I see is a skull and a black cloak' she knows I can see the dead so I probably don't need to explain anymore. I need to be careful not to look it in the eye, it will catch me if a do.
The grim reaper is scanning the room... looking for me.
