Slash, slash, slash, went the 2 footed black leather whip. Every time that the whip whipped across Noa’s back, it would leave marks of her heart being ripped out. It was horrifying to watch the blood ooze out of her open wounds.

 “Stop,” I whispered in tearer. “STOPP!!!” I screamed as they both turned to look at me. I was crying, pleading for father to stop letting his anger take over.

 I ran towards Noa and wrapped a blanket around her bloody back while looking at father in disgust. I grabbed her hand and walked out of the door not even turning around to say goodbye.


“When are we going to get there,” I said while looking at Noa who was driving. We were heading back to Janesville, our hometown. We haven't been back there since the incident that happened 13 years ago. We wanted to go back and see if the town was in shape or still a pile of rubble.

“Would you have a little patience, Pandora?”

“Well it’s not my fault that the seat that I am sitting in is jabbing a piece of metal into my back.”

“We can get that fixed when we get there.”

There was a slight pause when I saw the building that said Janesville up ahead. The sign seemed to be fixed because when we were little, It was all torn up and had graffiti on it. Now, it looked brand new like you were seeing a bouquet of flowers.

When we entered the town, we looked like we were at the mall, seeing new fashion designs everywhere. There were people walking their dogs, some people were picking up trash. It was like seeing a brand new town for the first time.

“Well i am surprised.”

“Same,” I responded back in a soft tone that I have never done before.

We drove into our new driveway. The house was a light blue with black shingles. The house had 2 perfectly sized bedrooms rooms, one kitchen, living room, and 2 bathrooms.

I was so excited to go into our furnitured house that I about tripped while getting out of the car. I ran into the house and got comfortable on the black sofa. When Noa came in, she went into the kitchen and started to cook supper with the few groceries that we had in store.

“By the way, I registered us in into the Janesville high school, I hope you don’t mind,” she yelled from the kitchen. “We are starting tomorrow so get your few boxes and head up to your room,”

“WAIT, REALLY!!!” I yelled back in response, “I thought we were going to have a couple of days off before we did anything,”

“Sorry, since we missed the first and second train from Fursona to Lisoto, we don’t have anytime to mess around,”

Well it was my fault that we had missed the train 2 times in a row. First we went shopping, that was how we missed the first train. Then I wanted to go to the zoo, that’s when we missed the second train.

I picked myself off of the couch and headed outside to get my 3 boxes out of the car. While I was struggling to get the third box, somebody came beside me and grabbed the boxes in my hand.

“I hope you don’t mind,” the kind gentleman said.

“Oh, no, not at all,”

I walked on our sidewalk that led up to the front door. He followed  behind me with a smile on his face. It was kind of creepy at first but I just ignored that thought and accepted that he was helping me when I knew Noa couldn't.

“Pandora, could you also get my boxes too,” She said while walking into the living room where the nice gentleman and I stood. “Oh, who is this?”

“Oh, ya, he helped me carry my boxes in the house,” there was a slight pause.

“Well, what is your name,”

“I’m Terrance and I live across the street from you,”

“My name is Noa and my sister here is Pandora,”

“Nice to meet you Noa, Pandora,”

“Well Terrance, would you like to stay for dinner tonight?”

“I would love too,”

After the table was set and the food was laid out nicely, we started to chow down. We talked about our favorite interests and what we did when we were little. We didn’t dare speak about the incident because it would have caused a lot of silence at the dinner table.

After we ate all of the meat and finished the potatoes, we said goodbye to our helpful neighbor and sat down on the sofa.

“Well I never thought that we would meet such a nice neighbor on the first day,” Noa said in exhaustion.

“I know right, I was also surprised,”

“Oh nardsickls, we for got my boxes in the car,”

“I’m so sorry, I forgot!”

“It’s alright, we are all human, everybody makes mistake,”

We both trotted out side while having a conversation about food. I opened the car door while Noa grabbed 2 boxes. I went after and grabbed the rest of the boxes. We both headed upstairs into Noa’s room. Her room was twice as big as my little room. After I set her stuff down on her bed, I told her goodnight and I headed to my room. All of a sudden, I felt a sharp pain in my head. I fell to the floor while grabbing the wall so that I didn’t fall on my face. Noa ran out of her room in a flash and grabbed my arm to help me off of the floor. She had this face expression that I have never seen before.

“Are you ok???” She asked while panicking.

“I’m fine, I just have a little headache that’s all,” I told her so that she wouldn’t ask any more questions because I wanted to go to bed.

“I don’t believe you,”

“I’m fine,” I said again

“Well ok then, night love you, see you in the morning,”


I headed to my room hoping that she wouldn’t follow me and annoy the crap out of me just to get answers.

When I got to my room, I laid in my bed, tired. I wanted to read my book before I went to bed but the headache just kept coming back.

After about 2 hours, I drifted into a clean slumber.

When I woke up, my head didn’t hurt as much anymore and I was fully energized. I rushed to pull on random clothes that laid in my sight. After I put on random but good enough to wear out in public clothes, I rushed downstairs to find something to grab and go.

When I arrived down the steps, I smelled the greatness of Noa’s cooking. The smell forced me into the kitchen where I saw Noa with an apron on and cooking cinnamon bread.

“Goodmorning Pandora, how did you sleep,”

“Um, I guess alright,”

“Well I am cooking cinnamon bread for lunch this afternoon so go get your bag and we will head out in 2 min,”

“My bags already down here but I will be in the living room watching t.v. untill your done,”

After about a minute or so, I left the kitchen and headed into the living room. I plopped down on one of the many sofas that looked at me. I turned the t.v. on and started to tune into the daily news. The news lady said that there was something strange happening in Janesville and that everybody should be careful at night. I was a little freaked out at first but just turned off the t.v. when Noa came in the living room indicating that she was ready to leave.

I grabbed my bag and headed out of the door with her. She got into the driver's seat while I laid back in the passenger seat. She drove out of the driveway and headed to school.

The whole ride there was quiet and peaceful. We just cranked up the music and sang together. I kept skipping the song because it played on the radio constantly. But otherwise, the whole ride there was like sitting sleeping soundly.

When we got to the school, there were kids, crowded everywhere. I looked out of the window in surprise. I didn’t think that their would be so many people at a very small town.

I got out of the car and headed for the office with Noa.

When we entered the office, it was a mansion. People were scattered everywhere. They were running like a flock of chicken.

“Hello, are you Pandora and Noa,” a women behind the counter said.

“Oh, um yes, I’m Pandora and this is my sister Noa,”

“Well then, I have both of you registered on here,” She said while getting up out of the chair and walking over to us with 2 papers.

“Here you are then, this is your schedules,”

I looked at my schedule and I noticed that I had really good classes. All of the bad classes were scattered everywhere instead of all of them in one place.

“Thanks!!” we both said at the same time while heading out of the 1 yard door.

I touched the smooth paper while heading to my first class.

I entered the rounded door to my science class. People starrd at me in a normal bland face. I waved my hand slightly and walked to a random desk that had no name on it for this hour. I sat my stuff down and got comfortable in the chair. I looked at my surroundings and saw that I was sitting by Terrance.

“Hi, I am very surprised that I sat by you,”

“Is that a bad thing?”

“No it’s just I thought I was going to have to make a new friend instantly,”

“Well I guess that you got lucky this time around,”

“I guess I did,”

The whole day went by smoothly and so did the past few weeks. Me and Terrance are now best friends and Noa and I share some classes together. I am very proud of myself for coming back to this town and making new, happy memories! Although, I kept having those really bad headaches. I tried to ignore them so that Noa wouldn’t be all over me.

I woke up bright and early today, hearing the faint sound of the birds letting everybody know that it is morning. I could not wait to get to school to see Terrance again. We get along together like 2 peas in a pod.

I threw on clothes and ran down the stairs. I didn’t even bother to get breakfast, I just headed out the door yelling goodbye to Noa.

I ran on the sidewalk, anxious to get to school. I kept tripping over my own feet because of how fast I was going.

When I saw Terrance at the entrance while waving him down and ran at him for a hug. I tried hard to catch my breathe while my putting my hands on my knees. Once I finally caught my breathe, we started a conversation while walking into the school. Then all of a sudden while we were walking, Terrance started to run down the hall and around the corridor, holding his hands around his waist so that they were not visible. I ran after him while yelling his name but he didn’t stop. When I turned the corridor, he was nowhere to be found.

I searched every room that was down the hall but he was not in sight. But then I realized that I missed a room. Technically it’s not a room but he could still be in there. I went to the door and gently placed my hand on the cold handle. I put pressure on the handle and cracked the door a few inches. He was sitting there, looking at his hands and crying.

“No, it can’t be now, why now?” he said to himself over and over.

At that very moment, I looked down at his hands to only see his hands with marks of ancient history and they were dripping with blood. It reminded me of the blood from Noa’s back. After I thought about that memory, my head started to spin and it felt like an anchor weighing down my head.

I made a small sound while holding my hand up to my forehead. This caused Terrance to look away from his bloody hands, and up to my face. He got up from where he was and his face expression changed in an instant. It went from crying, to angry. His face made me let go of my forehead, and start to run. He followed after me, running down the halls and out the door and into the forest. I ran as fast as I could, remembering that when I looked up at his face, his eyes were changing colors.

I went back to reality and about crashed into a huge tree. I dodged it while sighing with relief.

The next thing i knew it, I was a nearby house in the middle of the forest. I knew that it might be a bad idea but I was anxious to stop and catch my breathe.

I ran into the unlocked door, and locked all of the locks that were at reach. I sat up against the door, sliding down, catching my breathe. But what I didn’t realize was that all of a sudden I heard a lock on the other side of the door. WAS THIS HIS HOUSE!?!?

I tried at the door for hours and finally gave up. I was sure that he was gone by now so maybe I could try the windows. Lucky for me, the window was unlocked. I slide out of the window and tip toed, trying to be quiet. I was almost to the end of the porch when I felt a presence near me. All of a sudden I felt a pain in my limb. I fell to the ground, holding my limb. I heard a somebody to my left so I turned and saw Terrance with huge red eyes, going out of control. He tried to swing the knife at my head but I dodged and grabbed his hand were the knife was and stabbed his stomach.

I had the chance to get up so I did. I started limping but running at the same time, trying to find a way out of the forest. Instead I ended up at a calm beach where everything looked peaceful. I couldn’t stand walking anymore so I fell to the sandy beach and lay there. I started to taste blood coming from my mouth as I spit it up. I thought of Noa and all of the good times we had before I went up to the great heaven. Blood oozed from my leg ounce by ounce and I finally had something peaceful to think about.


It has been many years since my sister Pandora went missing. I tried to look for her everyday but I just couldn’t find any leads to were she might be. I called the police and FBI but they couldn’t find her either. Terrance also went missing the same day as Pandora did.

I got all of my stuff and headed towards the beach that was in the woods. Pandora always loved going there so I decided today that I was going to visit her favorite place that she loved to go to.

When I got there, it was so peaceful and felt like what heaven might of felt like. I looked around at my surroundings and I saw someone laying in the sand.

“Are you ok miss,” I called out hoping they would answer. I walked over to where she lay and screamed. It was Pandora! She was laying there with a fresh stab wound in the limb. I checked for a pulse but she didn’t have one. I started to cry and punch the sand. “WHY WHY WHY WHYYYY!!!!” I screamed.  

I started to calm down after about 3 hours or so. I sat there by her dead body, talking to her about all of the good times we had when we were kids and I thanked her for all of the things that we did together.

When I was done, I kissed her cheek and found some really pretty flowers and put them on her chest. I folded her hands up neatly like how they did in movies and in reality. I walked home by myself, in the dark crying by myself with no shoulder to put my head on.

While I was walking, My chest felt like somebody was sitting on it. I crashed onto the ground while holding my chest. Another soul was back in my presents.

THUMP THUMP, THUMP THUMP, went the sound of Pandora’s heart.
