Hello, my name is Andromeda and I am going to be telling you about where I live. The name of the town where I live is Greetown. Everyone is friendly, the mailman and postman are always on time and there is no money.  Greetown is located in Kalkurio. Everyone here speaks English.  There are no medical problems everyone respects and loves each other. I love my life and I love the world. I am an only child and live with my parent’s lily and Oliver.

“Andy, Time to go grocery shopping.” Lily screamed.

Oh, well I guess I have to go but, don’t worry I’ll be back later.

“Coming, Mom.” Andy came down the stairs in her fuzzy socks with excitement for another trip to the grocery store.

“As soon as you put Jeff outside we can go.”

“Okay.” Andy leans down and grabs the heavy bulldog and with all her might lifts him up and ties him to the deck in the yard. When she comes back in she hears Oliver say.

“I don’t know why you tie him up. He’s so lazy and never moves anyways.” They all laugh and get ready to leave the house. Andy puts on her rubber boots and heads out the door.

“Bring your umbrella.” Lily said. Andy as a reaction reached for the red and black dotted umbrella. They walk out the door and head in to the car.

“Seat belts” Oliver says. And they all buckle up in sync. He turns the key in the ignition and starts the car. He back out of the driveway and turns to go out of their subdivision.

“Andy, did you finish your homework last night?” lily asked

“Yeah I only had 5 questions in math to do.”

“Right, you’re in grade 5 right?” Oliver asks

“Yes.” Andy replies

“It seems like only yesterday you were—”

The talking stops and all Andy can hear in ringing. Now she begins to hear screams from her mother. These are the last words she hears “She’s gone” that is until she opens her eyes to reveal her in hospital and feels fine. She looks to the people around her and doesn’t recognize a single one.

“Jenny? Jenny! You’re alive.”

“Who’s Jenny?” she replies

“You are!”

“Who are you?”

“I’m your mom Linda, and this is your father Oscar.”

“My name is Andromeda and I don’t know where I am or who you are?”

“I am your mother. You are in the Georgia state hospital.”

“Where’s Jeff?”

“How do you know who Jeff is?”

“Where’s Jeff?”

“Jeff is the one that did this to you. He put you in a coma.”

“But, Jeff was my best friend.”

“What?” Linda replied.

“He was so kind to me and he helped me go to sleep.”

“What? No Jeff is evil honey.”

“Jeff is my friend. Go away or if you want you can meet Jeff and he can help you go to sleep too.”

Linda and Oscar walk out and start talking amongst themselves.

“She’s gone crazy.”

“I think we should leave her alone for tonight.” They walk out and leave her alone.

As Jenny is just lying there she hears and noise and opens her eyes. There she’s sees standing there Jeff with his black hair and his constant smile.

“Oh, am I glad to see you? What happened? Why am I here with these people?”

“It didn’t work.”

“It’s been so long can you explain what happened to me.”

“Well you didn’t want to live in this world so you befriended me and I helped you. I put you in a coma where you changed and lived the life you wanted to. However; they were able to revive you so the only way to escape this world is to die now.”

“Is my name Jenny or Andromeda.”

“Your name in this world is jenny. But your name in your own world is Andromeda.”

“Oh Jeff. Can you just kill me? I already miss my other life.”

“Okay I’ll make it quick.”

“Why you love killing. You’re Jeff the killer!”

“Because you are my friend and I don’t want you to suffer. You ready?”


Jeff takes out his kitchen knife and stabs Jenny right in the heart the last words she hears as Jenny are.

“Go to sleep.”

Now Jenny opens her eyes again to reveal that she is there with Lily and Oliver right next to her.

“Oh honey. You look much better than you did.”

“Oh, mom Where’s Jeff? “

“Right here.” Oliver said

He places the bulldog on her bed and he puts his paw on her chest right where she was stabbed as Jenny.

“I’m so glad that you came back to us.”

“I will never leave you again.” Said Andromeda
