Enjoy!
Thankfully the morning had been busy so Dawn hadn't had time to think about anything, although she'd had flash backs which had quickly disappeared with the constant rumours going around that the company was sacking people, after lunch Dawn sat at her computer and was about to turn it on when she saw Kathy walking towards the door, Dawn could see she was upset, "are you alright?" asked Dawn looking up, "No....they just sacked me!" said Kathy as she ran the rest of the way out the door, "What!" said Dawn in surprised, but Kathy had already gone, so the rumours were true poor Kathy thought Dawn, she hoped she wasn't next as she turned on her computer the last thing she needed right now was to lose her job too. Twenty minutes later she noticed Mike walking out the door, he was leaving earlier than he normally did he always said goodbye as he left but today he said nothing, Dawn wondered if he had been sacked too. Half an hour after Mike had left, her boss came down to reception, "Dawn could you come up to my office please," said her boss, oh no this was it, her boss never came down unless it was for something really important, I'm next on on the list thought Dawn as she shut down her computer with shaking fingers and headed upstairs to her boss's office. When Dawn got to her bosses office the door was open and her boss was sitting at her computer, Dawn walked into the office and closed the door she sat down and waited for her boss to tell her she was no longer employed with the company. Dawn cleared her throat, she was feeling very uncomfortable. Her boss looked up and said "Dawn don't look so scared I'm not firing you, the company have decided to move you". Dawn was puzzled as she asked "move me?". "Yes!....to another building...we're opening a new branch and we feel you're the right person to run the place...I know it's a bit short notice but as you probably know by now there has been a lot going on today...the new office is in Sunset Valley....we will give you a pay rise of course," her boss saw the look on Dawns face "....look...go next door and have a coffee and think about it and I'll see you back here in" she looked at her watch "say...half an hour ok?." Dawn walked out the office with all sorts of thoughts going through her mind, the office was next to a library which had tables next to a river Dawn stood there not looking at anything in particular deep in thought, a gentle breeze touched her skin and brushed her hair slightly, the birds were singing and the noise of the river was normally calming but today Dawn didn't notice any of it as she was deep in her own thoughts, this is the big break I need, I could buy my own house away from Riverview she wouldn't have to worry about bumping into Ray and his girlfriend, she could start a new life..., Dawn could feel excitement bubbling up inside, her month contract was nearly up she only had a week to go, living with Simon was turning out to be a bit of a pain anyway, he left his Laundry lying about and dirty dishes in the sink she wasn't surprised he was divorced. Half an hour later Dawn was back in her boss's office,"Well have you decided if you're going to take the job?", "Yes...I'll take it!", "That's great!..I knew you would" smiled her boss. One hour later.
Dawn was walking out of the office, her boss had given her a lot to think about and the rest of the afternoon off as it was Friday it would give her some time to sort out some things, the company wanted her to move into the new office as soon as possible. She looked back at the reception desk as if looking back on her old life, she smiled to herself as she opened the door and walked out feeling like a weight had been lifted. Later that evening.
Dawn had spoken to Simon about leaving he hadn't seemed very happy about it and she knew why because she always cleaned up after him and never complained they'd had a terrible disagreement, she'd told him he was a slob and she wasn't surprised his wife had left him, Dawn had stormed out the house and gone for a walk. As she walked she thought about all the thing's she had to do tomorrow, she was viewing a lot of houses tomorrow she hoped she would find one quickly she didn't want to be in Simons house any longer than she needed to, just then a noise snapped her out of her thoughts, the noise sounded like someone stepping on a branch, Dawn quickly turned round but there was nothing there, in the distance a owl hooted making Dawn jump slightly, She found herself in Riverview graveyard, she hadn't realized she'd been walking in that direction. As she walked through the graveyard it was so quiet almost eerie, normally there were a few people about and cars passing now and then but tonight there was nothing, it felt very strange to Dawn, she noticed a vase on a grave, it looked like it was glowing, she turned and looked at it. All of a sudden a bright light shone from it, Dawn wanted to run but something seemed to stop her. The light became so bright she couldn't see the grave any more, she put her hand up to cover her eyes, as if drawn to the light she walked towards it her heart pounding in her chest as she did so. As the light started to dim the ghost boy appeared, Dawn felt scared, she wasn't the bravest of people but had to know what he wanted.
"What do you want?" asked Dawn not sure if he could understand her. "Mummy" said the ghost boy. the sound sounding like it was in her head "I'm not your mummy, why do you keep saying that?". "Mummy" the ghost boy repeated. Everything suddenly started to go blurry Dawn blinked a few times but it didn't clear, then she felt as if someone was pulling her down as she felt herself hit the ground. Then floating in darkness she wondered if she'd fainted, she felt her head spinning as if she was drunk, she could feel the hard earth on one side of her body so she knew she hadn't fainted she tried to move but she couldn't, what's happening to me? was the last thing Dawn remembered thinking, then nothing as if someone had knocked her out.
