The Future of Annaleise

by Anonymous | Score: 5300

As Annaleise walks around the woods, she felt as if she was connected. She touches every leaf and tree, running her fingers through the texture of the leaves and bark as she felt energy jolt through her body. 

what is this sorcery? she thought. was it a spiritual awakening? She grabs out a fork as a offering to the fairies as she saw a fairy circle. "Okay i think that should be a good enough offering. Do not take my soul, take it as a thank you" 

As Annaleise heard a motorbike engine she realises she was on the run from a reserved delivery driver who happens to be her ex-husband, Michael. Michael inches near and near Annaleise as she closes her eyes, wishing she was in the future. The minute she opens her eyes she finds herself as she wished. Into the future. 

She looks around for a tissue box as she saw the grave of her mother. "Why are you crying? She wasn't a nice person" Annaleise turns around to see her sister, Bailey. "Bailey, she was our mother, of course i would be-" she gets cut off by Bailey, "a bloody psychopath. She murdered the fisherman! a bloody elder!" 

Annaleise opens a candy wrapper to reveal her stress candy box. "Mum was a psychopath!?" Bailey chuckled "Are you okay? We both witnessed it. She drove herself to insanity and is still on the run! That's why dad left! He was murdered Annaleise! Murdered!" 

She looks down onto the grave picking out flower petals "You don't deserve these flowers. You killed dad" 

Nothing interesting happened after a while. Bailey realised Annaleise came to the future to get away from Michael and they have been stuck with each other ever since. 

Annaleise hears a distant screaming of Bailey and woke up.
