Love Never Dies, Right?
"Landon! Please wait!" Shouts a coive
Mrs. Chant, of course.
I had stormed out of the room, running for dear life.
Running from my life.
Just plain running.
My mind can only process so much at one time.
Anna gets hurt, the Nightmare, Abby, all of this in one
Out of breath, I fall to the ground give up.
I'm in the middle of an intense game, a game I don't want
to be playing.
"Landon, can we talk?" She found me. Mrs. Chant.
Those words scare me...'Can we talk?'...it has so many
meanings. Both good and bad.
Everything has so many different meanings.
"Well, honey, Anna is stable again. We all can see her. But

This is horrible.
"Landon, I don't know." Crying she leaves.
Literally, and mentally.
The hallway is empty; I st alone with the color lacking
I wish they were a brilliant shade of red.
My mind and thoughts, slowly, leave me.
I feel like this is just a dream.
A bad fathomless dream.
But it is not.
As a zombie would, I arise, walking, well in my case,

"Landon, hey...son" My dad.
I turn to face them.
"We're heading home. It's 9:45, the Chants are
staying all night, you may too." My mother.
I nod, and move away, distance begins to seperate me from my
