The past Returns from Within

By Katy Cargil

     With a strangled cry she sat up quickly. Eyes, filled with horror,
gazed into the darkness ahead of her. Her breath coming quick and short,
it took her a while before she could calm down enough to notice her skin
was damp with cold sweat. An involuntary shiver ran her spin. She hid her
face in her hands, mumbling softly as warm tears silently fell from her
blue eyes.
      "Why.. why do these..dreams.. plague me?"
      She hadn't slept well on occasion. The dreams of what happened in
the past came back to haunt her sleep. As if angry that she had blocked
it for so long. Since she was healed and the block was removed.. these
memories pushed painfully forth from the back of her mind. Shoving forth
the memory of people screaming, part of a  ship occasionally giving off a
shower of sparks. And a caring mother and father who placed their baby
girl into an escape pod. The sight of the ship exploding and the crash
landing upon that dusty planet on the out rim.
      She wiped the tears from her cheeks gently. Alesia and Jacob. Her
parents. Yes.. Retroy was that baby girl. She gave a staggered sigh as
these memories gave her an unsettling feeling. Sometimes.. she just
wished that the block had never been removed or that she could block the
memories once more. She hated waking up in cold sweat to these dreams. Of
having to watch the destruction of the ship which her parents were on
over and over again in her mind.
      Curling up into a ball, she tried to sleep once more, hoping for a
different dream. Anything seemed better at the moment then the dream or
is it a nightmare? Whatever   it is.. it was about her parents death and
she didn't want to live through it again. In so.. she laid there thinking
or trying to think of something else. Something of a more happy moment..
