P.Asana here! Im writing a short story based on the book Unwind by Neal Shusterman, it's a great story and it inspired me to write my own little unwind Character(s). This short story is about a girl, whose parents decided to unwind her because she has separation anxiety, fail to do her work, a distraction and refuses violently, she can see and hear what other people can't, so her parents decide to put her in a hospital, which broke free and ran, ran, ran....
Lost-The Girl In another one's mind
It was raining, raining hard, all i can remember is me running for my life. My parents don't understand what i'm going through, they think i'm crazy, just because i can hear and see the girl. All she want's is to understand life, to be free, but she's trapped in my mind. It started when the doctor discovered i had a brain tumor. -flash back-"I believe the only way to save her is to give her another unwinds brain piece, we are going to separate the tissue......"I heard voices very faint, but i could here the conversation, my eyes fluttered open slightly then things went dark again. Later after the sugary, things weren't the same, i heard voices, sometimes i would find information, a past memories that i've never experienced. As if i'm looking through someone else's eyes. Things got worse during the years. I started being ignorant, disrespectful to my parents, refusing and not doing what i'm told and stealing. I've never once done those horrible things in my life until now, and I never could figure it out. Through my pre-teen years it got severe,I started to see a girl around maybe 15, she would have one blue eye, and one green, long bright auburn strawberry red hair, she was breath taking.I became friends with her,i would show her my dolls, and play dress up. But she would disappear when my parents came in, they thought i had mental illness so they took me to an institute in philadelphia. On my 17th birthday my parents signed the Unwind papers. My heart sank, i couldn't do it.I loved my parents dearly, but i don't want to be unwound for something I can't explain. So i escaped the hospital and ran, ran, ran. -end flashback-
I was running as fast as my feet could carry. Looking back over my shoulder with the police and their dogs after me, I wasn't ready to die, the girl, she didn't understand why she was unwound. She didn't even know that she was, and thought that she was alive, not living in someone else's mind, i'd get numerous head aches, like she would be digging deep into my mind, and try and look for answers i couldn't answer. I can't. I lost them an hour of running they decided to give up, i stopped myself before a cliff, i looked down at the dark abyss. Tears started to fall, my heart was broke in millions of pieces. I thought, the girl took over,
I didn't know where i was, this woman, i've been with her since she had the brain tumor. But i didn't quite understand. I would try to remember a certain memory, but when i try i can't find it and start to panic. What was that memory, i dug in as deep as i could....then it hit me, i was in a green field, near the beach, i turned and saw a small cottage. I felt my lips crook into a smile, i looked at my feet, and was wearing i red golden strapless dress. The one my uncle gave me. I was walking to a cliff, and looked down....but then the memory disappeared.
My head was pounding, i was on my knees, shaking and distressed. i started to cry at the memory, maybe this girl wasn't unwound, i lifted my head and saw a cottage, my eyes widened, i looked across the field, it was the beach, was this the girls home? I looked back behind me and saw the police, doctors and......my parents? I shook my head. "Come Naomi, come home with mommy and daddy."I glared at her, "Don't talk to me like i'm a child!"My mother backed away. I stood up, my life is a living hell, i'm done fighting, i could run, find a place no one would find me. But i don't want to hide, my time is over, i found what the girl was after. All she wanted was to remember that one last detail, before she jumped. But why did she?She was happy?. I looked at the black abyss again, tears well up again. They fell from my cheeks, not bothering to wipe them away, she was my new family and i jumped just for her,i heard everyone screaming my name but i didn't care all i wanted was to be at peace.....
