something new :]
13-year-old Jane has a dream of the night her father died.
twitter- @feelingafraid please follow :)

All of a sudden I was in the hospital, 10 years ago. I saw myself as a 3-year-old, standing by my fathers bed, grasping at his hand. \"Daddy!\" I said, my skin covered in red blotches from crying. \"Daddy... Daddy please don't die. Please Daddy.\"

 I watched as my mother walked up and put her arms around me with tears streaming down her face. \"Daddy's gonna be alright honey. He'll be fine,\" she said, attempting to persuade me he would be okay. The whole time, my dad sat there, barely alive. 

\"Jane, why don't you tell me that story about that girl in your class that was being mean?\" He said, wanting to calm me down.

I dreaded what happened next. Though the 3-year-old me smiled, I knew that everything the young me thought would happen was all incorrect. My younger self began to tell my father about how a girl named Kate stole all my crayons and cracked them in half. I wanted to scream out, to tell the 3-year-old me to stop and run away, but I knew no one would hear me. I tried to run away from this, but I couldn't. I couldn't run away from my own memory. 

Instead, I was forced to watch as my dad slipped out of this world. I saw my dad die for the second time. My mother let out sobs, the younger me burying her face in my mothers stomach. I screamed out and forced my eyes open. It may have been a dream, but everything that happened in it was real. 

For the next three weeks, I never slept without waking up screaming, remembering that horrible night.
