I look at the girl standing by the bushes. “Who are you?” I ask nervously.
“Don’t you remember me? Drew? It’s Margareta,” she says. Her voice sounds like chimes.
“Oh God! Margareta! I thought you…you…” I say trying to finish my sentence but can’t.
“Yeah…I did, but I came back, I came back for you, so we can be together forever.” She says happily.
“Margareta, I am with someone else…I can’t leave her. She loves me and I love her.” I say back not trying to get her angry.
“What? Drew, you said you would love me no matter what happened. I can’t believe you lied to me! You…you bastard!”
“No Margareta, I didn’t lie to you, I thought you died. I thought you died in the fire. I tried to save you, honest, I did. But they had to pull me out and take me away.”
“I saw stupid. I saw after I died, I saw everything! I saw you sitting in that white bed for months with bandages and burns all over you. You know dying that way…it was painful. It felt like hell. Hell it was hell. I could smell my own flesh burning. And then it all disappeared into nothingness. I came back to find my body and all I could find were ashes. ASHES DREW! ASHES!” she screams.
“Margareta I am sorry…but you are dead. I am here. I have moved on. Please go rest in peace and have a wonderful afterlife.” I say trying to be kind.
“I am not going to move on! Do you know how long it took for me to find you? It took years. FIVE YEARS to be exact! FIVE FREAKING YEARS!” she screams again.
“Please Margareta; I am sorry for what happened. But I am in love with another girl. Who is in fact alive,” I say then realize I didn’t mean saying it that way. I bring my hand to my mouth seconds after the words come out. “Margareta I didn’t mean it that way…you know right?” I ask worried now. She had this look on her face like she was plotting something.
“I see Drew; I will not be bothering you anymore. Have a great life…but you might just want to watch out for your lover’s back. Something terrible might happen to her…it could be on accident even…who knows?” she says smirking then suddenly she vanishes.
I stand there in awe of what had just happened. Then I realize what she said. “She might hurt Juliet. Oh my goodness, I have to find her.” I think. I stand up and start running toward her mansion. Hoping I am not too late…
