She isn't liked

A bunch of people were standing around me. I didn’t know who they were. They were laughing. A black haired boy came over to me. His smile was evil. . I had to get away. The boy kicked me in the gut. I felt pain. I couldn’t take it. I struggled to get up. I felt some one hold me down. More people came and started to kick me. Hard enough that is would hurt, but not enough to break my ribs. I kept on telling myself to get up. Make them stop. Do something than just let them kick you. But I wouldn’t move. My brain wasn’t getting the message. I heard a scream. I looked around to see who had made it. I had screamed. Everyone stopped. I felt myself start to tremble. Just stop, I heard some one say. I shut my eyes as tight as I could. Are you okay? I opened my eyes and looked up at him. In my mind I knew he was safe. But I got up and ran. I ran to the road. Then I started to walk, the pain in my sides increasing each step. I had to sit and take a break. I sat under a shaded tree. There was a little puddle. I looked at my reflection. It was hard to see. Another face appeared in the water. It was the black haired boy. I twisted around to see his face. He was smiling evilly again. He raised his foot and stomped on my face.

I woke up.

The bright lights in my eyes again. My sides had stopped hurting. It was only a dream. But it felt so real. Was it a flash-back? Did I really have a past that bad? Who was that boy? His teeth were so straight. I hoped for a name to pop up in my mind. But none did.

“Good morning Mara.” It was the doctor. “How was your sleep?” It sounded more of a statement than a question.

“Good I guess…” I moaned.

“You were moaning in you sleep.” The doctor said. “You said ‘stop’ repeatedly. What were you dreaming about?” I told him the whole dream. He listened carefully. It looked like he didn’t want to miss any important details. I didn’t want to tell him the whole dream, but it was very hard to lie to this man.

“Very interesting…” He said once I was done. “So everything is happening as I predicted…”

“What did you predict?” I asked. He smiled.

“Mara… You will experience flash backs. Some of them have happened and some of them might be your dreams, but what you have just told me did actually happen.” He looked away. “It was two years ago, your mother brought you into this medical room. You had a fractured nose, and bruised sides.” He closed his eyes for a moment. Then he opened them. “You told me something completely different than what you told me today. I don’t remember all of it, but I had something to do with a dog.” He chuckled a little. “It could have been possible, but I knew it wasn’t true. I didn’t ask for the truth. I saw it in your eyes. I knew that it wasn’t a dog. It was your class mates.” Those people were my classmates? The doctor looked at me. So, I wasn’t liked. “Don’t go searching for your past.” The doctor told me. “You might get yourself in trouble.” He smiled at me, and then left the room. I closed my eyes. I thought about my Doctor had told me. I felt myself fading away. I drifted off into a dreamless sleep.

“So it’s settled.” I heard my mother say. I had a good nights rest. I dreamt of nothing. I was happy.

“She’ll be leaving tomorrow.” The doctor said.

“Thank goodness, but, do you think she’s ready to come home?”

“I think so.” I opened my eyes. My mother was standing talking to my doctor.

“Good morning,” The doctor said to me. “Do you have a good sleep?” I nodded, and yawned.

“Great.” My mother said. She looked at my doctor. “The sooner the better…” And she left.

The End
