Life is facing the shadows once more, but this time she faces herself. What will she do? She wants it, but she doesn't...The whispers have got to stop, will the thought of Death give her strength?

...Tell him, how magical his hands could be...
Let him, do what you wanted, but didn’t receive from the other...
...Be Life again....let the butterfly come from the heart...
Let everyone know the true beauty in the heart....

What are you afraid of, Rachel?
Yeah, Rachel, what are you afraid?
Rachel, you know you want him, you want to feel him.
What do you have to lose, Rachel?
He wants you, he is nice, and he treats you like a princess...
What are you waiting for, Rachel?
Taste him. Give him your full attention...
Forget about the other, he isn’t worth it...
Tell him, what he wants to hear, give it to him...
What will it hurt? Tell him how you like it...
Tell him, how magical his hands could be...
Tell him, Rachel, what is stopping you? Huh, Rachel...
Quit fighting with him, Rachel...
You know you want him, Rachel...
Let him take the wrest of your innocents, Rachel...
Let him, do what you wanted, but didn’t receive from the other...

I have entered the shadows once more,
No dreams, no life, just the bad...
Screams...
I hear them. They are not mine.
Girls screams, the unknown, she screams,
Pain....
Pain from what...
The voices in my head, taunt me....

Tell him where, how...
Rachel, tell him Rachel....

Another voice whispers, above the screams of the unknown.

Aisha...
Your dearly beloved friends haven’t forgotten you...
Tell them, what is going on...you don’t want to be in the shadows...
Let your wings spread into the sunrise....
Be Life again....let the butterfly come from the heart...
Let everyone know the true beauty in the heart....
Don’t let words get to you...
Lyrical, came back from the dead,
So can you.....

Aisha...
Love awaits, just wait and see...
Mourn no more...
Rise up, help the girl unknown find her way,
Let her know, everything will be ok...

Aisha, you are life,
Find Death, he awaits your return....

I lift my head, close my eyes.
With all the power of truth, I have,
I shatter the voice of lies.
As it dies, I feel the shadows lifting.

I stand, and take a deep breath.
The unknown, isn’t very far.
I stretch out my hand, and open my eyes.
With vision of knowledge,
I speak to the girl, with and through new eyes,
And tell her, everything will be ok...
That it is ok to pass through the gates of light.

I don’t see her, but a blur of light, as the sun seems to
Burst through her, causing me to stumble back...

I hear the rush of the ocean,
The sound of seagulls,
And a deep voice...

That voice, I know,
The voice full of many melodies,
And sweetness—

I open my eyes,
To hazel-eyes staring at me,
They smile at me.
I stared at his lips and blush.

Death, laughs at me.
“I thought you would never wake up my flower,
But you finally came through, and bloomed.”

Life smiles, “I fought the shadows, all for you.”
