My Own DemonsI know it isn't really there. The shadows moving along the side of the road aren't really there. There are demons slipping between houses, and what looks like baby bodies littered along the edge of the woods is just my imagination. I know that these things don't really exist, that I'm not really seeing them, but they look so real.I can only catch the glimpses out of the corner of my eye, if I look dead on then I would see it for what it really was. That doesn't comfort me, it seems to only confirm what I already think. I'm going crazy. But, then, I would have had to been going crazy for as long as I can remember.These things I see have always been there, always on the edge of my vision. I would have, what I fondly referred to as, good days. Sometimes I can go weeks without seeing a thing, and just when I would get comfortable and relax a little, they would be back. Haunting me, that's the best way to describe it. Following me.It's worse when I'm tired, obviously, all mentally connec
Reverse Psychology P6Reggie's eyebrows shot up in surprise. "But, I'm standing right here." He spread his arms to indicate that he hadn't gone anywhere.Alice gave a small laugh, he smiled back. "No, silly." She grew serious again. "I've lost you, haven't I? I treated you so badly, Reggie. I'm sorry for that. If I had been nicer maybe I would still have a chance." She couldn't help but laugh at the irony of their reversed rolls.Reggie reached out a hand towards her, but hesitated and pulled it back."Alice," He began, but he was cut off."I saw you were getting ready for a party. It looks fun. I was gonna stop by and say hi, but you were...busy." She paused at the thought of that woman with her arms around him.Reggie seemed to perk up. "You came by? I didn't know that."Alice colored. "Yeah, I didn't stay.""Why?""I didn't think you wanted me too." Alice gave him a pitiful look, one that said: I want you to tell me I was wrong. I want you to tell me it isn't too late. Please!Reggie saw this look. He to
Reverse Psychology P5Soul searching is not something that Alice did often. She knew who she was and she felt confident in herself. At least, she thought she did. She took the walk home slowly, she had never noticed how beautiful the tree lined lane really was, especially in spring time. Everytime she saw something she couldn't help but imagine Reggie's reaction to it all. He was so excitable, always running after something or another to get a closer look. She remembered the time he brought he a hand full of prickly flowers, because he thought they were pretty. But the very next day he brought her a white rose, because he said she was prettier. She had yelled at him then, even though she secretly had liked the gift. Why had she been so cruel to him? Why had she been so stupid?! For years he had been waiting for her to notice him and all she ever did was blow him off, and now he was gone forever! This new girl had come in and was nice to him. She recognized Reggie's attributes, his sense of humor and deep lo
Reverse Psychology P4As she sat down to a lonely dinner that night she thought over all the things she had said and done to Reggie. The more she thought about it the more she realized that she had been cruel to him. Laughing at him in front of her friends. Teasing him and mocking him. He was a running joke between her and the other girls in town, and it was all her fault. Alice pushed her dinner away, she had lost her appetite. Why had she been so mean? If she had been a little nicer maybe Reggie wouldn't be so mad at her and he would still talk to her. But how could she make it up to him? What could she do to make him see that she was sorry for how she had behaved in the past?"I guess I could start with an apology."She went to bed that night feeling very sad, but resolved to fix it in the morning.Dawn broke through bright and cheerful, the perfect day for making up. Again, Alice dressed her best and practically ran out the door. As she neared Reggie's house she could hear quite a clamor coming from the
Reverse Psychology P3As Alice made the long walk home she found herself unintentionally looking for Reggie. Never had she gone so long without seeing him. On the way she passed March Hare's place, he was always having Reggie over for tea and she felt confidant that he would be there right now. She fought with herself to pass Marchy's place and not drop in to check. She didn't want to give Reggie any ideas that she was seeking him out. Instead she continued on her way, her nose in the air."I'm just glad to be rid of him." She said out loud to herself.However, through out the day she couldn't stop thinking about him. While she washed dishes, folded laundry, swept the floor, read her book, and walked through the garden she kept thinking about him. And the harder she tried to not think about him the more she did. But it went beyond thinking about him constantly. As she walked pass the open front window she heard her gate swing open and was surprised to find her heart in her throat, beating like mad, at the p
Reverse Psychology P2The next day she woke with birds singing, not Reggie, and she dressed in her best outfit and prepared for another Mad Hatter free day. She walked down the street to the library, where she worked, and hummed to herself. She had passed the first two of three streets when she instinctively flinched as she passed a certain mulberry bush. It was every other day that Reggie managed to find himself hiding behind that bush only to jump out at Alice and attack her with another proposal for lunch. But today, as she passed this bush in question, there was no deranged hatter to accost her. Another smile spread across her face."Ahh." She thought contentedly.She worked through her shift without any unexpected, and unpleasant, visits. The hours went by quickly and her mind was free to wander on pleasant thoughts, and yet. As the day went by she found herself thinking more about Reggie then she had ever done before. She really just couldn't understand what made him suddenly change his mind about her
