The Return of a Nightmare
I was having a day out with a good friend of mine Tanya. It felt good shopping with her today because this was what mothers and daughters were supposed to do. Me and my mother weren’t very close and we would argue all the time but being with Tanya felt like she was meant to be my mother because she was so nice and she actually cared about me. I come back home later on in the day and we were talking to each other on Facebook and I told her how I felt wishing that she was my mother and she was saying really sweet things about me. It made me feel so happy.
I went to bed that night feeling really good about myself and I couldn’t wait to see Tanya again. The next day, I seen Garry and he was stopping at my house. We were hanging out together and we decided to have a walk in the streets for a bit. It started getting dark so we went back in again but when I got back there was a note on the table from my parents telling me that they were at Tanya’s and that it was best for me to go round too.
I felt really confused as to why my parents were round Tanya’s as they barely speak. I went round with Garry. It was really dark and the only light were street lamps which weren’t very bright anyway. Finally, when I arrived, I walked in and my parents were standing in the living as when I looked around I started to get a gutting feeling when I seen Casey and her boyfriend in the living room with them.
Mike was sitting at his computer looking down as if he was concerned about Casey and Tanya was in tears.
‘What’s going on?’ I asked.
‘Casey and Brad are coming to live with us for a bit’, my mom said.
‘What, no way, why?’ I asked really annoyed.
‘Cher, they have been kicked out the flat, Casey is pregnant, Tanya is going to have her here so we have no choice’, she said.
‘For god sake mom, I don’t want her at the house, this is not fair, she shouldn’t of got f*cking pregnant in the first place!!’ I shouted.
‘Cher, you have no choice, she is stopping at our place, it’s not going to be forever’, she said.
I couldn’t believe what was going on. I really didn’t want Casey at my house; it really was bad enough having her on Facebook. As Casey was picking up all of her things to take into my dad’s car, I went up to Tanya.
‘Tanya, what is going on, please say you ain’t going to forgive her?’ I asked, feeling worried.
‘I don’t know Cheryl, I just don’t know anymore’, she said.
‘Tanya, she doesn’t deserve forgiveness, look what she did you guys, she doesn’t deserve to be forgiven, you told me this yesterday, you said you weren’t going to let her back in your life’, I said annoyed.
She didn’t say anything, she was just in tears and Mike was still looking at the floor. There was no sign of Luke so I was guessing he was either in his room or at a mate’s. I was felt a little disappointed that Tanya was letting Casey back in her life but mostly, I felt jealous. Me and Tanya were so close without Casey around and I was worried that all that was going to end now Casey was back in her life. If she was going to forgive her, they had a lot to sort out and they would have spend a lot of time together, no time for me, I was going to be completely out of the picture and I needed Tanya.
I just stood there for a while looking around the room and I noticed Mike put his hands on Casey’s back but she flinched and pushed him away. I could see that she still hated Mike and only came here to get her mom back, she was still going to cause trouble between them.
I stormed out of the flat and walked down the street trying my best not to cry. My parents had left without me knowing that I was not going to be happy about this situation and that I would want to be left alone. Garry followed but did not saying anything, he knew I wasn’t ready to talk, I just wanted a silent walk around the dark wet street thinking about yesterday and all those things Tanya had said to me, how happy it made me. I knew it was too good to be true. The brick in my chest felt heavier, how was it possible for me to still breathe. I shouldn’t feel this way.
I finally picked up the courage to speak, but it was nothing about the situation that was going on.
‘This street is full of street lamps, I used to hang out here all the time when I was younger’, I said.
‘It seems like a nice street’, he said.
We started talking about streets and the town Sedgley. It started to take my mind off things but not for long when I realised I had to go back home soon or else my mom would be phoning me up worried. I started to walk back home but the long way and avoided Tanya’s street. I finally got back home and my parents were in bed and Casey and her boyfriend were already making themselves at home, digging in the fridge for food and making themselves a drink.
I didn’t even speak to them, I went straight into the cabin, shut the door and put the telly on. Eventually, they both went upstairs and I heard the spare room door shut so I went up the bed with Garry. The next day I went into the office and started some work on a case study as I was working for one of my lecturer’s and Casey came in and she was trying to speak to me but I kept on ignoring her as I really wasn’t in the mood to speak to her.
Later on that day, her mom came round and she was talking to my parents. I went into the small computer room to sit in the dark so I could try and sort my head out but Casey came in and she shut the door and turned the lights on. She started shouting at me because she knew how close me and Tanya were and she knew very well that I didn’t want her back with her mom.
She started calling me all the names under the sun, she told to keep out of her business and to get out of Tanya’s life. I was so annoyed because of the cheek of saying that at my house, while my parents were still in and her mother being here as well and she was the one that brought her business here. It was nothing to do with me and it was nothing to do with my parents but she still brought it here for everyone to get involved in so I started shouting back and I was really harsh.
Suddenly, she started kicking me and pushing me. I didn’t know what to do as she was pregnant and I didn’t what to do anything that would hurt the baby even though she was hurting it by being all stressful and violent towards me but I couldn’t put up with Casey’s attitude for no longer and since she ruined a lot of things anyway I thought sod it and I hit her really hard on the arm. She started screaming with pain but I quickly went out and decided to tell Tanya before she could but Casey had a habit of twisting stories around.
I had to wait for her and my parents to stop talking first so I waited in another room while Casey went back up into the spare room with her boyfriend. Garry thought I was being too harsh with her and that I did have to keep out of their business.
He was right, I felt so selfish.
I dreamt of all this because I was out with Tanya yesterday and I had such a good time and I was telling her how she was more of a mom to me than my actual mother. That is how this dream has triggered off.

It was a Monday morning and I woke up feeling really depressed. I got myself ready and headed off to school and I was having pictures of my mom dead in my head. I had no idea why I was seeing this visions being as though my mom was still alive, therefore, this freaked me out big time. It wasn’t really that bad until the next day which was Tuesday. My first lesson was English and I was dreading it because I found it so boring.
Today, we all had to sit in a circle and take it in turns to read ‘Blood Brothers’. It was such a boring lesson and I found the story so boring so I would find myself staring around the room into nowhere. As I was staring about, I saw a ghost, or that is what I think it was, of my mom. She was really scary looking and she was walking right towards me. I quickly got up and shouted ‘Go away, leave me alone!’ to her. At this point, everyone stopped reading and looked at me as if I was going crazy.
I took no notice of everyone and noticed that she was still following me, I climbed over the table and walking backwards having no idea that I was approaching a wire. I suddenly tripped over it and smacked my head off the desk, knocking myself out. When I woke up, I was in the hospital. They told me that I had a mild concussion so I had to have a check up but I was fine. I looked and my English teacher was next to me looking all worried. She must of thought I was a right freak shouting out at nothing because from the looks of things, I was the only one that saw this ghost. Was I really going crazy?
The sad thing was, my parents did not come and visit me and it sounded like they didn’t even care that I was in here. However, I came out of hospital that day but didn’t go to school until Thursday. When I arrived, my form tutor was already in the class and when he saw me, he told me that I should go home. I didn’t get why I should but then the year head came in and she said she heard about what happened. She made me go to the nurse office for a long counselling session because she thought I was imagining things.
The councillor was yapping on for hours telling me how to control my visions as if I was a freak. However, when I told her what actually happened, that I actually did see a ghost, she still didn’t believe me but she did give me some good advice. She said, although ghosts don’t exist, if there was one haunting me, then I should see what it wants so that it would eventually go away. This actually seemed like a good idea so I went home after the session and decided not to go in for a while to see if I can talk to it at home so I am not as embarrassed at school.
Not once did the ghost come to me at my house and it looked like it was never going to come for me so maybe it was over. I went back to School on the Tuesday and I had English first lesson which I was dreading even more because I was still very embarrassed about what happened last time and was hoping it would never happen again. But it did. As we were in a circle reading ‘Blood Brothers’, there she was standing there. This time it was different, it was like she didn’t want to cause harm, she wanted to show me something. Even though she didn’t walk to me this time, I was still really scared and it was still really weird seeing my mom as a ghost when she is blatantly alive.
My English teacher could tell that I was seeing something because of the way I was reacting. The ghost just kept on looking at me as if she wanted me to come up to her. I remembered what the counsellor said when she told me that I have to see what it wants. Therefore, I had no choice but to see what it wants and maybe if I can somehow give it what it wants, then she will leave me alone. I was dreading this; people already thought I was crazy for shouting at thin air, what the hell they were going to think when they see me walk up to one. I had no choice; I got up and went up to her.
She took out her hand, her skin was a horrible grey and her eyes were really white and rotten-looking. Her hair was really matted and it was like she died under water or someplace wet. It was obvious what she wanted to do, so I placed my hand, on her grey cold palm. I looked around and everyone was staring at me. I was so embarrassed but next thing you know, I wasn’t in the classroom anymore, I was on a weird looking ferry. I noticed it was in a time when I wasn’t even born which meant she took me back in time. I saw my mom, but there was also a girl and she looked exactly like me.
The girl wanted to climb over the railing to get to the other part of the boat where my mom was, but she couldn’t so my started shouting at her and being horrible to her. I didn’t know why she was being so horrible until I saw a bottle of beer in her hand, she was drunk. Eventually, my mom helped the girl over the railing but while they were both at the top, the girl strangled my mom and pushed her into the sea.
The life guards quickly jumped over to rescue my mom but it took them a while to find her and when they did, they had to rush her to hospital. I was in the hospital watching the doctors shocking my mom to bring her back to life and I seen the ghost of her watching over them trying to bring her back to life. Eventually, they managed to shock her to life and she was breathing again, however, her spirit was still standing by the bed. Could this be? Could part of her soul still be walking around trying to find the other part of the soul?
Next thing you know, I was back in the classroom and everyone look very white and was really scared. What did I do to scare them? My English teacher come up to me and dragged me outside the class.
‘Cheryl, what the hell happened, you are really starting to scare everyone in there?’ she said also looking very white.
‘I don’t know, I was sent back in time, this ghost, she was trying to tell me something and I think....’
‘No Cheryl, you have no idea what went on when you were “sent back in time”’ she said angrily.
‘What happened?’ I said confused.
‘Your face turned grey, your eyes went all white and rotten-looking and basically, you looked like a corpse’ she said as if she was about to throw up.
I couldn’t believe it, how could I look like that while the ghost sent me back in time. This really scared me, I was hoping now that she shown me that she could leave me alone but I knew that wasn’t going to happen. I was going to have to help her get her other soul back, but in a way I didn’t want to. Although my mom made it obvious she didn’t like me and was nothing but horrible to me, I did love her because she was still my mom and I did not want anything bad to happen to her so I couldn’t show the ghost where she was, I was going to have to find another way to make her leave me alone.
‘Cheryl, I want you to stay out here, you have scared everyone enough, I don’t want anything else to happen and I’ll talk to you later’ she said and she went back inside the class. Great, I was stuck out here for the rest of the lesson and I was going to look as if I was in trouble.
As I was standing outside bored, I started to think about how much that girl on the ferry looked like me. She had the same face as me, she dressed just like me and she was the same height as me, it was like she was my twin or something but way back in time. I was really confused and I would of done anything for all this to stop. I wanted things back to normal where I didn’t scare the whole English class and I didn’t look like a freak.
These visions were getting worse; my mind was getting really messed up. The head teacher came up behind me having ago at me for getting myself into trouble. When I turned around, I screamed. It wasn’t her; her face looked like a corpse. I was really seeing things and this whole haunting was messing up my mind. She was continuing to have ago at me but I just ran off and went home. I went straight to my room and locked the door. I couldn’t stand what was happening to me, I lay on my bed and listened to some music trying to take my mind off things and I finally fell asleep.
I woke up at 7 the next morning and I felt normal. I got myself ready like normal and headed off to school. It felt like it was going to be a normal day today so I was hanging around with friends and having a laugh and I wasn’t going to let this ghost put me down today. I was going to be a normal student getting on with her life. Everything was perfect up until lunchtime. I was hanging around with my boyfriend but he was having bad stomach pains and wanted to see the nurse.
Me and my friend decided to take him to the nurse office but as we got past the B block, I saw her at the very far end of the school, just standing there staring at me. I froze; I thought she had finally left me alone. All of a sudden she ran towards me, she was super fast, next thing I know, she was right in front of me, giving me the evil stare like she always did. I was that scared, I passed out.
I woke up to laughter and talking, it sounded like my boyfriend and my best friend and some teachers. Where was I? I found myself lying on something soft, I was quite comfortable and really warm and I could smell strong coffee. I sat up to find myself I was in the white area staff room and I was lying on the sofa.
The teachers that I could here was my science and geography teachers and they were both drinking coffee. They were all laughing and having a good time including my boyfriend who was meant to have bad pains in his stomach. They finally noticed that I was awake and then they started to bombard me with loads of questions asking me how I was feeling and if I was ok etc. I was shocked to see my science teacher caring because she usually hated me and always having ago at me in class for no reason.
‘What happened to me?’ I asked confused as to why I was in the staff room.
‘Oh, Chez, you passed out, you just froze and went really pale and then all of a sudden you just fainted, we were really scared so we screamed for help and Mr Amos came out and he had to carry you into here and we decided to stay in here until you woken up. Are you ok?’ my best friend said.
‘Yeah I’m ok’ I said, embarrassed.
I was wondering why there were only two teachers in here, but then I found out that I was out for some time and it was passed lunchtime. The teachers didn’t want me to go to class because they were worried I was going to pass out again so me, my best friend and my boyfriend could stay in here until school had finished. I was really happy about that as I really couldn’t be bothered with the last two lessons.
The next day I had English, the lesson that I mostly dreaded because the ghost seems to want to haunt me the most in that lesson. Again, we were all sat in a circle reading the boring ‘Blood Brothers’ and I was made to sit next to the teacher which was rather embarrassing. About half way through the lesson she was there again, but this time, I decided to ignore her this time and just have a normal English lesson without any interruptions.
This time, she came right up to me, and me trying not to show any emotion what so ever, she whispered in my ears, ‘I am not finished with you yet, I want you to meet me at your break time in the B block toilets, you will regret it if you don’t’ and she disappeared. Her voice was so hoarse, it just sounded horrible and creepy. At the end of the lesson, everyone seemed happy that there were no creepy moments; it was pretty much a normal English lesson.
By the time it came to break time, I totally forgot about meeting her because I was having such a good time with my boyfriend and best friend. The next lesson was double science; I wasn’t dreading it as much because my science teacher was nice to me the day before so I thought she was actually going to be nice to me from then on. However, I was wrong, she was horrible again.
In the middle of the lesson, I started to feel sick and I felt like I needed a break so I asked my science teacher if I could go to the nurse but she just told me to ‘sit down and get on with your work’ which did get rather annoying after a while. I gave up and continued to get on with my work trying not to throw up. However, I did notice that she was sitting next to my classmate Jeanette throughout the whole lesson because apparently she was ‘ill’.
I was glad when it came to lunchtime, I got myself a drink and stopped feeling sick. Again, I was just hanging around with the boyfriend and best mate relaxing in the sun and making most of the break because the next lesson we had P.E and we had to be graded today on our sequence on the trampoline. I wasn’t looking forward to it because I hated going in the trampoline in front of everyone because if I messed up my sequence, then everyone was going to laugh at me.
When I got changed, I realised that I had forgotten to meet the ghost at break time and I remember the threat she had given me if I failed to meet her. At this point, I got really nervous and really didn’t want to go on the trampoline just in case something bad was going to happen to me. I went up to my P.E teacher and asked her if I could give it a miss for today but she told me I had to do it today. I kept trying to beg her for me to give it a miss because this was how bad I didn’t want to go on but she just wouldn’t take no as an answer so I stormed off into the toilets.
I soon regretted going into the toilets because about 5 minutes after being in there, the ghost came.
‘I thought I told you to meet me at your break time’ she said in her hoarse voice.
‘I’m sorry, I forgot, please forgive me’ I cried.
‘I meant what I said earlier, if you wasn’t going to meet me I was going to make sure that something bad is going to happen to you’ she said laughing.
‘But why, what have I done to you, nothing, I don’t even know you’ I cried.
‘YOU RUINED MY LIFE! YOU STRANGLED ME AND THEN PUSHED ME OVER BOARD’ she shouted.
I was really scared and burst out crying, I didn’t know what to do and I didn’t know what was going to happen to me.
‘Please, leave me alone’ I cried, but it didn’t work, she just laughed and disappeared.
Not long after that, my P.E teacher came in and saw that I was crying. She thought I was crying because of how badly I didn’t want to do my sequence today so I let her think that. She kept going on about how important it is that I do this sequence today because everyone is getting graded on it today so in the end I decided to do it.
I was dreading it when it was my turn to do mine. Everyone was staring at me and started whispering. Know what they were whispering about, since that episode that happened last Tuesday, no one was able to shut up about it since. I managed to ignore everyone and just go on with my sequence. I was doing quite well and did start to enjoy it. I started to do some really high jumps which was not a good idea because as I was in the air, I seen the ghost but she was looking scarier than ever. I lost my balance and bounced off the trampoline and hit my head off the bench which knocked me out.
While I was knocked out, the P.E teacher told everyone to get out the gym and to get changed. She then had to write an injury note that would have to be sent to the school nurse. When everyone went, the ghost went into the P.E teacher’s body. When I woke up, she was right next to me giving me a weird look.
‘Hello Cheryl, look, I’m in your teacher’s body. Haha, never mind, I guess you will be spending the night here tonight’ she said as she got up.
‘NO!’ I shouted, but I was too late, she shut the gym door and locked it. I started banging on the door and shouting but no one heard me, everyone had gone and she was right, I was here for the night and there was nothing I could do about that. I cried for a bit then started going on the trampoline. I was on it for hours and learned how to do flips and other tricks, however, I had to stop because it was getting dark and it was hard to see where on the trampoline I was jumping. I stopped and lay on the trampoline. It started to get really cold and I was only wearing a t-shirt and shorts.
Meanwhile, while I was locked in the gym, everyone was looking for me because I had gone missing. My parents didn’t care that much but my boyfriend and best mate were looking all over for me and they both spent the whole night looking having no idea where I could be. They finally gave up and decided to have a look at the school in the morning.
The next morning, my boyfriend woke up and realised that he doesn’t remember me coming out of the gym after school, so he decided to go to the school extremely early and tell the teachers in the staff room that I could still be in the gym. About 6 teachers came out and went down to the gym and when they walked down the stairs, they noticed that the P.E teacher was lying on the floor unconscious, so the geography teacher, who was also a doctor went running up to her checking the pulse and calling an ambulance.
The other P.E teacher opened the gym and they found me on the trampoline. Everyone noticed that it was colder in the gym than normal but they all ran up to me to see if I was awake, which I wasn’t. Someone ran to the geography teacher and while she was gone my eyes opened, I started glowing and rose up into the air. My eyes were white and my skin was a greyish colour.
‘I am now controlled by a ghost who looks exactly like my mother. I am sorry everyone but this is the end of me now, you should all go and leave me be, there is nothing anyone can do now. Kye, I am sorry and I love you and please tell Casey that I love her too. Farewell.’ I said and I dropped back down onto the trampoline.
My boyfriend started shouting, trying to wake me up while the teachers were all freaked out about what they had just seen. Finally, the ambulance arrived and they collected me and my P.E teacher and we were both sent to hospital. I woke up later that day realising that I was back in hospital, however, my P.E teacher was in a coma and shown no signs of waking up anytime soon. I was really depressed, I just wanted all this to stop and I knew that as long as this was going to carry on, bad things were going to happen to me.
Although I was in hospital, I was still controlled by the ghost, every night when I went to sleep; I was with her in my dreams. I would find myself in the woods with her and this was re-occurring for a few days. I noticed after the second night I was with her that I was in the woods up the Beacon which was not far from my house. I was really tempted to run away and go home but I knew this was just a dream and I was worried that she would end up killing me if I did.
Eventually, I got sick of these re-occurring dreams and finally stood up to her.
‘Look, this is getting really stupid now, that girl that almost killed you on the ferry is NOT me, yeah she looks like me and she could basically be my twin, but the vision you have shown me was way before my time. I mean, come on, how the hell I can be the one that killed you when I wasn’t even born back then. I love my mom more than anything, and although she probably doesn’t love me, I would still die for her and I would definitely not let anything bad happen to her either but she has never loved me, she has always been horrible to me and I have never understood why, but I think I do now, since your still walking around since she almost died, it means that she must only have half a soul which then means that she is not as nice as she would be if she had a full soul. Please help her be a nice mom, I would do anything for her to love me back, I really would’, I said and then I started crying.
I looked up and was shocked to see that the ghost was in tears. I didn’t think ghosts could cry but I guess my speech did something. The ghost was all of a sudden nice to me.
‘Yes, I will help you, I’m sorry for treating you like this, I had no idea’ she said and she wasn’t so ugly looking anymore, she looked exactly like my mom. All of a sudden I was back in hospital which was the last place I wanted to be right now, I wanted to find the ghost so she could go back into my mom’s body.
When I went back to school, everything was back to normal again and everyone knew that it was all over because my colour was back to normal and I had no more problems since. Although everything was still over, I was still not happy because I was really eager to find her so that she could help my mom. As everything was back to normal, my form tutor invited me, my boyfriend and best mate on the skiing trip.
I definitely decided to go on the trip because I felt like I needed a break from everything that has happened to me recently and it would be a good opportunity to forget about the ghost. When we arrived at the airport, I realised how many people were with us, we were well crowded. I looked around and I saw my science teacher holding Jeanette while she was throwing up in a bucket.
When we got onto the plane, my form tutor explained to everyone what was going to happen on the trip and what activities we were going to get involved in. The day we arrived, we had to go on a parachuting activity. I was really nervous because I had never done this before. I got buckled up and we started rising up into the air, however, because of my luck, my buckle came undone and I fell to the ground. I hurt my wrist but nothing was broken and I didn’t need to go to hospital or anything but I really did want to go back home because I didn’t feel safe being out here.
My form tutor understood about me wanting to go home so he sent me and my boyfriend on the next plane home. The next day I went to school like normal and I had business studies. My business studies teacher was in charge of arranging school trips and she kept asking me what kind of trip I fancied going on but I told her that I don’t want to go on no trips at the moment because of all the bad luck I was having. That night, I decided to go up into the woods on the beacon to find the ghost so she could help my mom. After an hour of looking, I managed to find her; she was sitting on an old log staring into space.
I went up to her and told her that she needed to help my mom because she was getting more aggressive towards me. She agreed that she would try and go back into my mom’s body so she followed me home. When I arrived home, she was sleeping on the sofa which meant it was the perfect chance for the ghost to go back into her body. All of a sudden, there was a flash of light and my mom suddenly woke up.
‘Cheryl, what happened, where you have been, I have been so worried about you’ she said as she got up and she gave me a big hug. I was really shocked because this was the first hug I had ever had. I couldn’t believe it, it worked and my mom was finally nice to me.
From then on, everything was back to normal and I never seen the ghost again.
This was one hell of a nightmare and I have no idea why I dreamt such a dramatic dream. However, this dream really did scare me and I did start having these dreams often.
