DV – #6

“I notice some girls are sleeping soundly, but then there are others clinging to their covers, shivering in their own sweat.  As a sister who’s always looked after her brother, I just want to reach out to every girl who fears this darkness.  It’s not like ordinary darkness that encompasses our apartment at home.  It’s not like the darkness when you forget to light the candle.  It’s as if it’s alive.  The darkness is alive and is watching all of us, deciding when to attack us in our sleep.  It has hands that grip your heart, that seeps into your mind, that slithers under your skin.  It slowly makes you a part of it; a part of the darkness.  Once the ghost latched on to Evangeline, her eyes turned black, as though she was no longer herself.  They want to convert us – destroy us – so that we become just like them.  And this is what I want to save the girls from.  I can feel the darkness penetrating my mind, and I am doing my hardest to block it out.  It latches onto emotions, which every child in this room has.  It latches onto those emotions and tries to persuade you that there is no need for emotions such as those.  There is no need for emotions in general.  Because the less we fear, the less we begin to fear; the less we begin to care; the less we begin to worry.  But it is those emotions that keep us strong; it is those emotions that help us survive.  And the longer we hang on to those emotions, the more chance we have of overcoming the darkness.”
