I remember seeing what I saw before me. They called me again. I’m nervous this time,
unlike the other times. As long as the others don’t figure it out, my powers are safe.
“Donna!” someone shook me awake “We’re here!” I glanced at my surroundings. What a bland room I was in and it was all in one color, terrible. I sat up on the bed still covered by sheets, to only see my friend Tyler sitting before me “I heard you mumbling and thought you were going crazy.”
“I’m fine, it’s just…”
“No time to talk, we have to go wake up Josh!” Tyler grabs my hand and races through the corridor “Don’t drag your feet, come on!” It’s always like that with Tyler; not a care in the world in his land.
“What time is it?” I asked.
“5:00 A.M!” Tyler replied.
“Who the f*** wakes up this early?!”
“I do!” I sometimes hated Tyler, he can sometimes be an a***hole. Hopefully his reign of excitement will stop after he drops me. As he kept dragging me, we reached the guest room, where Josh slept. Tyler let go of my hand, dropping me on the wooden floor. With a loud bang on my head, I watched as Tyler poked around with Josh. “Wake up Josh.” he said quietly at first. I kept listening through the closed door “Josh, I’m bored please wake up.” Suddenly, I didn’t hear my friend’s light girl voice. Silence, I really didn’t want to know what would happen next. Then, I heard moaning noises like ghosts, knowing Tyler he must be raping Josh or something.
“Tyler!” I was worried for those two, especially Josh. He was the one getting a stick up his. I busted down the door quickly to my surprise, Tyler was in bed with Josh, but more like cuddling. He made pretend moaning sounds as he lay next to Josh, though my friend was asleep.
“Sup, something wrong?” Tyler asked casually.
“What’s wrong… what’s wrong!? I heard f***ing moaning noises that’s what’s wrong!” I
pulled the cover off of Tyler as I saw his shine sprite boxer shorts.
“You like them? Maybe we should have a threesome!?” Tyler was overjoyed by his idea.
“No thanks, I’m going back to bed.” I told him.
“Fine, miss all the fun.” Tyler said as he pushed me out of door of the room “Me and Josh are going to have fun…” he trailed off as he closed the door. I walked back to the couch a little worried again, that’s how I always am. I’m always the side character that is just there and not in the adventure itself. I hate myself sometimes for not being important. Whenever I’m even mentioned in a story, I’m just never thought of again. Why do people forget I’m here?
“Because that’s who you are,” A voice called into my head, I can recognize right away.
“Slim?” I telepathically transmitted the thought.
“Yes, you were created to be forgotten.”
“Sorry, but you play such an important role.”
“I do? How?”
“You are one of us, but more like a spy and you know all.”
“Know all, what do you mean?”
“I mean, remember at the party a few months ago?”
“Well, yeah. I just knew…”
“Exactly, you were designed to have this power to watch over others.”
“I don’t believe you!” I was frustrated, I didn’t understand anything! “Look, I don’t have powers! I’m just a normal woman!”
“You must believe me, you are one of us.”
“I guess you cannot remember. I’m guessing amnesia, I miss the old Donna!”
“Old Donna?” I could hear a slight slap; guess he wasn’t supposed to say that.
“Sorry, don’t listen to me,” Slim spoke up “I must leave and not say anymore.”
“Wait! Didn’t you say I have to know everything!” I was so discouraged and confused on Slim’s explanation. I don’t even know what to do anymore. Why do I have to be forgotten? Am I feared by others? Am I a killer? What is everyone’s purpose in this wacky world? I know Jake’s, Patrick’s, even those two a**holes I have to stay with, but I don’t know mine. I can’t help, but think about it. Is there a secret me? Am I not supposed to be here? Am I what I think I am? Just a scrapped idea made up by a person, later to be thrown away. I hate this stupid confusing world, I call home! I could hear moaning again, great something even worse keeping me up! I even wonder if I’m going to get sleep in the first place. God, make it stop!
My phone began ringing, with twinkling sounds as the ringtone. Opening the phone, I saw the bright white screen with words on them:
You do belong here. Without you we could never have pronounced you as the Observer. Please don’t be mad. You’ll understand someday, keep watch of the boys. ~Bethany
Understand? Understand?! When will that happen? Good god, repeating these questions in my head sucks! Am I here to just watch unfocused men that love each other!? Or am I here to be a person too!? I tried calming down from the frustration circling my head. All I ever gathered from these years were adventures and couples. Am I supposed to record that? I hope there’s another one like me. I wish there was. I guess for now I’ll try to sleep knowing I’m here and unimportant whatsoever. I fell asleep on the bed as I interpreted with the wisdom given to me. I can hear the echoes of previous quotes and new quotes being said:
Watch them as they venture.
Keep them safe again.
You must have amnesia.
The old Donna.
Who’s old Donna? I don’t remember anything besides waking up from that day. I always believed it was a dream. Dreams aren’t real are they, neither was that plush world of cuteness. Now I heard banging from the other room that was the last straw for my contained insanity! I marched to the room, slammed the door open interrupting Josh and Tyler’s imagine porn, and lastly pulled Tyler by the ear to his original room.
“Ow! That hurts a lot Donna! What’s gotten into you?!”
“Nothing, Let’s Record Porn is over!” I scolded him loudly.
“You’re just jealous, because of the wonderful time me and Josh had.”
“Don’t blame me Tyler for the new baby you’re going to have!” I’ve never gotten this mad
at a person before, the last time was with Jake and Patrick.
“Do I have to leave so soon?”
“Yes!” My eyes had fire in them that just illuminated the bedroom. I saw the fear that Tyler’s expression gave off. He was trembling as he could tell my blood boiled with rage.
“What’s up with you, I’ve never seen you this mad?” his questions were bugging the hell out me. Wish he could just shut up!
