He was on the floor and his face was red. I kneeled down to check his pulse. His heart was still beating and he was still breathing. Thank God!! But he was definitely out cold. Just as I was stood up, my vision got blurry. I didn’t know what the hell was happening, but it wasn’t right. Everyone else had already left I guess. I looked around the room to see if I saw Daren, Mike, and Merry Nicole. They were no where near in sight. I tried to get to my purse because my cellphone was in there. I needed to call someone for help. I left it at the table. I could barely see where I was going. Then, I tripped over something. It was something big and I fell on my arm. It was surreal and I felt like I was dreaming. I wished it were a dream because turns out I tripped over Mike. Mike was laid out on the floor just like Jay. His face was as red as Rudolph’s nose. I slowly inched my way closer to him to feel for his vitals. He was still alive. I was afraid at that point. I didn’t understand what was happening. I was confused. At that moment, my arm was hurt badly. Jay and Mike were both unconscious. My vision was fading more and more. I managed to find enough strength to get back up, and I was determined to make it to my phone. It was so hard because I couldn’t see which was weird. Finally, I made it to my purse and picked up my phone. I started dialing out and my phone flew out of my hand, and across the room. I screamed so loud!!! I screamed from the pits of my soul. I was beyond scared now. My vision was completely gone, and I started having a full blown panic attack. My heart was racing, skin was clammy, my breathing became rapid. I felt like I was dying. Then a faint voice whispered to me, “It’s ok” “It’ll be ok.” I’m still panicking. The voice gets louder and says “You’ll be fine”, and I immediately recognized the voice. It was Merry Nicole. I called out to her and begged her to help me. Her response shocked me. She said, “No.” “What is going on Merry Nicole and Where is Daren?”, I yelled!! I felt a hand massaging my hair. “You’re going to be ok. It’ll wear off soon enough. I just needed to see who was worthy.” “What? Merry Nicole What are you talking about?!”, I angrily asked.
“Just listen to me for a moment. I needed to find the one. The virgin. Daren is the one and you can no longer see him. He is invisible now like me, for I was only a figment of your vivid imagination. My name is not Merry Nicole. It’s Nia. You see…my virginity was taken away from me and I was murdered. I’ve been stuck in between worlds ever since. My soul can’t rest. It gets lonely here, and I was tired of being lonely. So, I decided to find a virgin that I could spend eternity with since my virginity was so brutally taken. I used to work in the same building that you all currently work in. In fact, I was murdered there. I allowed myself to be seen. I observed and planned for years. The chocolate chip cookies were drenched in poison and filled with specific ingredients to draw out the virgin. The sugar cookies were filled with a milder poison. Daren proved to be the one. He didn’t survive my cookies, and now I have someone to spend all of my eternity with. My soul can rest now. The poison will soon wear off of you, Jay, and Mike. You will not remember me or anything at all.”
