This is a short story I wrote quite a long time ago as an assignment for school. The title is "Deppart" (yes, I meant to spell 'depart' that way) because it is a story describing the place which Tae Jo finds himself trapped within after being possessed. The title is supposed to nod at the word 'depart,' as he has departed to this world, but also 'trapped,' as he is trapped within the world. Trapped spelled backwards is Deppart, and that is why I chose this title. I hope you enjoy it.

Growing up, there were a few things Willow Xantara knew to be certain.
Her mother died of a broken heart. She dared to love a human man and she paid dearly for it.
A girl with hair like flames has been a constant companion in Willow’s dreams ever since she could remember.
And when she was in third grade, Willow saved her dear friend Jamie from falling out of a tree. Except no one remembers it.
Her family never celebrates Halloween, she's sent to bed early, and she was never once taken to a doctor without first drinking her Aunt Charlotte's herbal tea.
Despite being surrounded by friends and family, Willow always felt out of place.
She understands the howls of wolves and her pet cat, Thoreau's complaints, her closest friend is imaginary and she feels the most at home in the woods behind her house.
But she is starting to notice things that no one else can see. As she approaches her sixteenth birthday, Willow fears that she is going insane.
In short, she is one of the loneliest people in the world.
That is, until her imaginary friend turns up to her first day of freshman year.
The red-haired girl who dances like fire kindles a flame inside Willow, and as she does so, Willow discovers a piece of herself that had she'd almost lost.
A life full of promises and magic most people leave behind when their childhood comes to a close.
The magical world of The Haven.
They say when you die, you hardly know it. That it's faster than falling asleep, painless, and your soul is freed to be at peace on the other side.
Those people have clearly never actually died.
My name is Vera Dawson, and this is the story of how I died...or rather, what came after it.
