Chapter 5

Chad awoke from the dream to see Jenna screaming at him from the other side of the fence. He climbed over as quickly as he could. She lowered her head onto his shoulder as her arms encircled him. She began to cry. He didn't know what to do, so he patted her on the back on told her everything would be alright.

"I'm scared!" she blurted out amidst wails. He continued to comfort her to little avail.

"It's ok. I'm here. There is nothing to worry about." He sounded sincere.

"But what about when that thing comes for me?"

"I'll always be there for you. I'll be there for you when the rain starts to pour. I'll be there for you like I've been there before. I'll be there for you because you're there for me too." she began to laugh amongst the tears. He looked confused.

"It's a song. The words are from a song."

"They're from a speech, but that's not the point. It's the meaning, not the words. I need to talk to you. You see, my name isn't Chad. It's Zaro. I'm sorry I lied to you. I don't know why, but I've grown attached to you over the last day."

"Time flies when you're having fun."

Then she fell through the floor.

The End
