You're Never Alone It happened a long time ago now, so my memory may be a little vague. I knew I shouldn't have gone there, it was just the curiosity was killing me. I never used to go there, but that all changed after I followed him that day. It was a typical chilly, autumn day when I first saw him. He glowed with charisma as he strut through the trees. It was the first time I had wandered through the forest at the back of my old house. You know that feeling when you don't know why you're doing something, but you just are for some reason; well that's what it was like for me. I didn't know who he was but I just had to follow him. I had that weird feeling that I knew from sometime in my past but I couldn't put my finger on how I knew him. It was the most annoying thing ever. I couldn't help but follow him. I first spotted him a few days before, and I had defiantly recognised him. Then I saw him again and thought that if I followed him home I might know where he lived and my memory would kick in. ...read more.


I was so happy to see them, but at the same time, my mind was overcome with confusion. Being a bit confused, I got up and looked around at familiar faces. I didn't know where they had come from, none of them were my friends from school, I never had friends from school, they all thought that I was weird for some reason. I had met all these friends in my own time. They helped me up and although confusion covered the majority of my mind, I managed to say hello to everyone and asked where they had all gone. Every one of them had disappeared when I was seven years old; and now, there they were, five years later standing in front of me. None of them had an explanation for their absence, they simply said, they had to go. After my confusing, yet interesting experience, I had to go home. It took me a while to find my way as I had walked quite far in whilst trying to find that guy. When I got home, I began to tell my dad that I had seen my friends from years ago, but just as I told him the names of them, he stopped me in mid sentence and told me that I was just imagining things. ...read more.


I heard voices in the room next to, one of them I recognised, and one of them I knew for sure. It was my dad! I ran to the next room to be completely surprised by seeing my dad talking to my mystery man. All I wanted to do was take them to my friends, but I never went into those woods again. I had no idea of my condition, they call it schizophrenia. It's a disorder in the brain; it causes defects in the frontal lobe. It turns out I did know the mystery man, but due to my condition, I couldn't fully remember him. He was my doctor. It isn't an uncommon disorder, but I felt like a freak knowing I was different from the other kids at school. You see, they all knew, but I didn't, that must have been why I had no friends. All the friends I did have were simply a result of my condition; they were all a different side of my personality. I haven't had an experience like that again since I got new medication. It was all the medication that killed them; it was all just a hallucination, the woods, the meeting between my friends and me. I was asleep in the doctor's surgery having a medication reboot, that's what killed my only friends. It turns out your never alone. ?? ?? ?? ?? Jenny Postles 10MPO English ...read more.
