!READ THIS AUTHORS NOTE! – Or you can just skip this and read the fiction.
Ok, I have been working on this storyline a while now in my head and sat down to work on it.
What need to know.
It's an OC story and for those of you who haven't seen the "Animatrix" I advise you to watch "The Final Flight Of Osiris" because the story is set before something bad happens to them.
As in "The Matrix Reloaded" it has been six months since Neo was unplugged. This story is set four months after that.
There will only be some minor appearances of Neo, Trinity and Morpheus
Alright. I think that's it, so prepare to jack in.
Has anyone else ever experienced anything abnormal?
I typed into a webpage that was an Ask and Answer site, on my notebook computer that was between my crossed legs, as I sat on my bed in my room in a dark green crop top and underwear.
Not vampires, werewolves, alternate dimensions, aliens, etc. Not that kind of stuff. I mean things that shouldn't be there and then they are. That doesn't make much sense does it... I've been seeing things . . . different for over a while now around where I've being living. In the air, objects, animals.
Two weeks ago when I was at a local playground babysitting my little brother, watching him from underneath a tree, there had been a slight wind and it was blowing the leaves around, it's autumn where I am.
When the wind had stopped and the leaves were beginning to fall back down tot eh ground when they disappeared into thin air.
At first I thought I had imagined it because I hadn't slept well that night and was feeling drowsy but it happened again. Déjà vu to be precise. The wind returned and blew the leaves and I watched them, focusing on the spot where they had disappeared earlier and when the wind stopped, they fell to the ground and then . . . gone.
It happened again and again. The same leaves, the same wind, the same time as always.
My brother and I had to leave however when I got a phone call from our mother.
I returned afterwards to find out what was going on with that particular area but when I inspected the tree there wasn't anything supernatural anymore.
Last Thursday I saw something close or maybe something like what had happened that day.
I had been with friends in the library working on our history project and we had went to in search for books on the topic we'd be doing and when I pulled out one of them I noticed something odd from the place I had taken it from. There was some kind of glowing green matter of some sort on the back of the shelf. I'm not a scientist but that's the best way I can describe what it was.
I took off four books down the line of the shelf and it was behind them as well, but stopped when I took off the fifth and went to take a book off the other line of books, but something weird happened and the it disappeared, like one of those old TV's when you turned it off when the white line appears in the middle of the screen. I searched for a bit with other shelves until one of my friends went looking for me so I returned to what I was supposed to be doing and trying to forget about what I had seen and for some reason it was as if something was trying to do that.
Three days ago at school, after practice from swimming, when I was showering the water had suddenly stopped falling on my head and started to fall on my shoulders, on my back and down my front and when I looked up at the sprinkler the water appeared to be falling onto something and was flowing over the edge and a few moments later there was a little static and was about to get tell hell out of there but it disappeared as soon as it came and the water begun to flow properly again..
Today when I was out walking our dog he saw a black cat and pulled so hard on the leash that I lost my grip and chased after the animal. I pursued after them and the cat climbed a tree in the front garden of a house and hissed down at the barking animal.
Once I had my dog's leash back in my hand and had him under control I turned to leave and let the poor animal leave in peace, but stopped when I saw the green mater again on its left hind leg and tail. It hadn't been there earlier when my dog gave chase.
I tied my dog up around the mailbox of the person who owned the house and climbed the tree that the cat occupied. It didn't run, but it hissed at me as I climbed up and got close to it, but managed to calm it down and investigate the green glow more clearly than when I had been in the library and this time I reached out to touch it and when my finger made contact with the cat's hind leg it started to go through the animal and the green mater seemed to spread out and started to become these weird symbols. A very weird feeling started to go through my entire body at that moment. It was as if I was sleeping . . . dreaming of something. I can't explain it exactly.
The cat then screeched and launched itself from the tree branch and landed on its legs and ran off and my dog started barking after it.
I waved my hand around where the cat had been, but whatever was there was gone. . .
The first thought's I have when I see these is that 'These can't be real' 'cause things like this aren't possible, right? But they are. . .
The weirdest thing of all is that I'm starting to have headaches when I start to think about what has been happening and like the feeling I had in the library of when I tried not to think about what I had seen, it was like something was trying to do that.
I haven't told anyone else about this because, hey, they'd obviously think I'm mad, on drugs or that I'm someone looking for attention. Hell, even you guys that read this too might think I'm crazy and all that other stuff I just mentioned, but it's the truth.
Has anyone else ever experienced stuff like this?
I finished writing and brushed a lock of my wavy light brown hair that was hanging over my left eye behind my ear and reread what I had written. I then brought the mouse cruiser over the submit icon and at that moment my bedroom door opened and I looked away from the screen as my mother looked in at me, frowning.
"You do know what time it is, don't you young lady," she said disapprovingly.
I looked down at the clock on my notebook computer and saw that it was ten minutes to eleven. "I'm just finished," I told her. "I'm just finishing up on my History assailment," I lied. I knew I shouldn't have lied to my mother. The two of us were really close, but I doubted even she would even believe me if I told her about any of the stuff I had been seeing over the past two weeks.
"Sleep is important, you know," she said, her frown easing a little.
"I know," I told her quietly, smiling. "I'm just about to shut this down. Believe me."
"Alright," she said with a sigh. "Good night, Lexis."
She had dropped the A of my name and used one of the nicknames I had.
"Goodnight, Mum," I replied and with a small smile she left. I then looked back at the computer screen and uploaded my question.
