Ellie Opens Her Eyes

Please wake up,” she hears him say
Who is this man?
She cannot recognize his face
“She opened her eyes! She opened her eyes!”
Instantly he dashes off out of sight
As he leaves, another person takes his place
Ellie could never forget this face
“Ellie, can you hear me?”
“Aubrey?”
Her words muffled, her voice low
“Ellie! You had us worried you know? Why would you do this? I don’t understand….”
Aubrey’s words became faint
All Ellie could think of was that man
“Aubrey, who is that guy?”
“You don’t remember him? He hasn’t left your side”

Finally he returns, two doctors right behind him
They asked her questions and began exams
But Ellie can’t seem to take her eyes off the mystery man

Four hours later it was just them two
Ellie gestured him close and said, “I’m sorry. Do I know you?”

“It was like a scene from a horror movie
Except it wasn’t a movie, it was real life
And it was happening right before my eyes
I saw you speeding down the street
I stood there watching as your car took that leap
About an hour later you washed up on the beach
Another man spotted you and quickly called 911
I just had to see how it ended because I saw how it begun
I was here the day they brought you in
And every day after
My name is Emmett, Emmett Lancaster

  1. That’s so powerful. It made me think of how I perceive things during a crisis situation. You hear little snippets of details going all around you. And none of it seems real. Very powerful.

    • Thank you! If I’m honest, I didn’t think I’d enjoy writing about Emmett as much as I do. He’s a crucial component to Ellie’s life

    • The characters were inspired by real people and real events but it’s fictional. I just shared another segment today if you’re interested in reading it
