I’m walking in a field surrounded by all sorts of vibrant beautiful flowers. I have no clue where I am but I
feel peaceful, relaxed. It’s confusing. I remember shooting Thomas and passing out. Had I died?
Because if I had I couldn’t complain about the beauty and serenity of this place. I touch the flowers and
feel the softness of their petals, smell their beautiful perfume as it drifts in the air, stare at the bees
buzzing around and feel the cool breeze as it flows
through my hair
There’s no pain, it’s the first thing I realize and I stare down at my body which is whole, no sign of the

toes, my feet are bare and sinking into the soft green lush grass. I’m in heaven.

anything goes. The daisy chain goes on top of my head and I smile, lying back down on the soft grass
and stare up at
the clouds in the clear blue sky, I wonder about my brother and if he’s doing okay, even feel a little sorry
for Johnathon who probably felt bad for rejecting me. I don’t even think about father and what he’d
done to me. It was like every emotion of mine just slowly faded away and left me feeling peaceful. If

* Then where am I?” I ask confused as she helps me to sit up.
“You’re in between” the woman says and I frown, still just as puzzled. She sits on the grass beside me.
“Who are you?”
She laughs and looks at me “you would know me as the moon goddess” she says lightly and I feel a
sense of panic. She was the moon goddess. Should I courtesy or how did I address her? I began to

“You’re neither dead or alive right now” she says and gives me a stern look. “You haven’t decided

She takes my hand. “Child you’ve known a lot of pain” she exhales, her blue eyes no longer twinkling
but far more serious now as I say nothing “I know you’ve wished yourself dead many times before but
this time you have a choice. I have seen everything you’ve gone through and how strong and brave
you’ve been. But now you have to decide, do you want to live or die?”
I think about it. If I live then I go back to feeling pain, the harassment, the bullying, it will just start all
over again. There was also the issue of my father. I couldn’t bare to go back home. What was the point

“Your brother and your ahem mate” she says quietly “or ex mate are in the hospital room with you right
now. Your brother is beating himself up for what’s happened to you and Johnathon is doing the same.
Neither one of them will leave your side. They’ve both hurt you but if you’re willing to forgive them, they

“I can’t go back to father” I say miserably “I just can’t.”
She squeezes my hand. “he’s no longer there child, he can’t hurt you anymore.”
“Why didn’t you help me” I whisper, tears flowing down my cheeks “you’re the moon goddess you could

“What will you do?” she asks and I sigh, looking over at the meadow and feeling a sense of regret. Was
this really the right decision for me?
