While watching a movie
The alley seemed endless. In the darkness of the night, silence is not necessarily peaceful, and the only thing scarier than the loud silence that pervaded the narrow road where Emily walked was the heat that seared through her skin from the silver locket around her neck. Emily could not remember for how long that heat had scared her, but she could remember the first time she had felt it. Her father had given it to her on her 16th birthday, and she had been thrilled, but only till the next day.
Emily’s mind ran back to that fateful day when she first felt the necklace burn. Soon after, she had seen the silhouette. It was faceless, standing beside John Wilkins. Emily squinted her eyes, unsure of whether what she was seeing was not an illusion induced by the LSD she had consumed at the frat party. John had invited her over, and for the first time, she had tried a hallucinogen. As Emily stumbled through the darkness of the hall and hit her head, she could feel some pain, but it had subsided.
“I’m okay,” Emily told herself, but as she looked at the shadowy figure of a man that literally looked like the grim reaper, she wondered whether she truly was okay.
“Woah!” Emily exclaimed as something resembling a timer appeared on top of John’s head.
“What is it, Emily.” Joanne, one of the cool girls in her class, asked as she raised her head, leaving the bright screen of her phone.
“You can’t see that?” Emily asked, pointing both at the timer and at the reaper-looking silhouette.
“Girl, you tripping,” Joanne said and returned her head to the phone. In the brightness of her screen, Joanne’s nose piercing twinkled at night, and Emily was about to say something when the silhouette that she had been trying to ignore suddenly stuck its hand out.
“Bloody hell!” Emily exclaimed once more, drawing the attention of a few people at the party who had not passed out from being drunk or completely stoned.
“What the hell, Emily?” Joanne said.
None of them could see it, but the being had stuck a knife into John Wilkin’s chest. Emily was about to explain what she had seen when the figure disappeared, and John stood up. She breathed a sigh of relief. Maybe she had exaggerated Emily told herself. Maybe she did not just see a shadow stab the jock who had been hitting on her since junior high.
“Relax, Emily, you’re tripping.” She told herself as she took deep breaths, yet, the digital timer refused to disappear, and as the party went on, she watched in awe as the timer only began to countdown than normal, moving at an alarming rate towards zero. She wasn’t sure what it meant, but even in her confused state, she knew it could not be good. Emily had barely turned to look at two people kissing, not too far away, when she heard a scream.
“He’s not breathing. Help him; he’s not breathing.” Someone in the crowd screamed. Emily pushed her way through the crowd, watching as a few students tried frantically to save John Wilkins, but as soon as she saw the last grain fall, she knew he was gone.
“He’s dead,” Emily murmured.
“Don’t say that!” Jakob said. But before long, he knew she was not wrong. John Wilkins was really dead.
John had died clutching the part of his torso that had been stabbed. After that day, Emily had never remained the same. She would be working down the street, and the necklace would be hot, then suddenly, the dark silhouette would appear. After he left, Emily alone would see the timer of whoever he appeared to visit, and before long, she would learn that the person was dead.
