Chapter Two

Everything was mist. Kelsey was surrounded in it. Her eyes were half open and she was twirling gracefully. Her mind was peaceful and everything that had happened a few minutes ago was like a forgotten memory. She was simply floating and spinning slowly in nothingness. The mist was a bluish gray that was so thick that she could see anything within a few feet from her.

Despite her peaceful feeling, she had the nagging suspicion that she was forgetting something extremely important. A foggy image of a boy her age floated in her mind and she remembered.

“MAX!” she yelled through the mist.

As soon as she yelled, the mist turned chalk white and she was falling. She was turning over and over, head over heel, but she didn’t know how long she would be falling because all she could see was white. Maybe she was in heaven. Maybe she was falling down a very long tunnel that would take her to Max.

Suddenly, there was a figure falling beside her, his clothes were startling against the whiteness. It was Max.

Wordless, he reached out for her and seized her hand. “I’m sorry,” he said quietly. She could hear him because no wind roared in her ears. The only way she knew she falling was that her clothes were fluttering wildly.

“It wasn’t your fault, but mine.” Kelsey admitted. “He lured me in and I nearly fell for his lies.”

“We’re going to be separated, Kelsey,” Max whispered, his brown eyes becoming darker as her vision began to blur.

“Max?” she whimpered, becoming scared. She couldn’t feel his hand and the mist was graying.

His next words were said as if from a long distance. “We’ll hate each other again,” he called. “But just know that I love you.”

“Max--,” Kelsey’s scream was cut off as she hit something and her scream died in her throat. She couldn’t even remember what Max looked like now. All her memories of her previous life were being scattered like leaves in a windstorm. She cried out that familiar name one more time before taking a deep breath and closing her eyes to give in to the darkness.
