|My Little Derpy Place!|
Only a DreamThe bizarre stench of chlorine and wet earth wafted through the air. We crept over a fence and into an abandoned yard. Shimmering lights drew my attention to a huge in-ground pool. There, water rippled from side to side, dragging with it the body of a large dead dog. Poor thing. It must have been running, too.Only a Dream by Graphix-Goddess
“We have to keep moving,” said Mom.
I took a deep breath and turned back around. Cold air chilled my face, so I cupped my hands over my mouth and nose, puffing warm breaths into my palms.
The rain had stopped, but the sky was still dark. Bright white stars shone through patches where storm clouds didn’t. In the distance, I saw blurred auras of flickering streetlamps. Mom grabbed my wrist and jerked me to come along with her. The power hadn’t gone out on this side of town, and we needed to move on before it did.

I didn’t have the friends Charlie had.
Rooms were cold.
Eyes grazed past faded white.
I was a ghost.

We stopped in the middle of what was usually a bustling daytime marketplace. He turned to me and lifted his arms to pull me close. I nestled my face against him, my hands flattening against his firm chest. The khaki uniform felt warm and smooth - always well-maintained.

Only to fade in a heartbeat
But the feeling can come back, and before you realise it
You cannot go back...and never want to.
