Hey all, I'm Kayla, first of all. I'm really confused about something so any comments are welcome! Let me take you back a few years.
My friend, Andy, and I were the best of friends. He was 2 years older than me so I knew him literally since the day I was born. Growing up, my dad wasn't really around. I mean, he was there, but he didn't help out a lot taking care of me. My mom was working 2 jobs just so we could stay off welfare, so, in a shorter term, times were hard. My grandma babysat me during the day, but she was taken ill and wasn't able to watch me as much. My mom was afraid she would have to stay home to take care of me so Andy piped up and said he would help my Grandma watch me. He basically lived at our house anyway so mom was thrilled! He pretty much raised me since I was about 5.
Anyway, everything was going great. Years went by; my mom left my father and met Trevor, my step father, and led a better life. Then one day, my life changed forever. Andy was supposed to come over but he never called. He always called if things changed so I started to worry. Then I got the call that broke my heart; Andy had killed himself. We knew he had depression so his mom put him on anti-depressants. Turns out he overdosed on them. Ironic, huh? To say the least, I was devastated. It was hard to live without him, but after a while I started to survive, so to speak. I honestly haven't thought about it in a while until yesterday.
I was lying in bed, almost asleep, when suddenly I felt like I wasn't alone. I hesitantly turned around and saw Andy sitting in my chair! He was sitting the way he used to while watching TV, sort of sideways with his leg on the arm of the chair, so I knew it was him right away. The weirdest thing is when he turned and saw I was watching him, he just smiled and faded away!
Is this some sort of sign?
Could he have known somehow that I had been forgetting?
I told my mom but all she could say was I'm "17 and imaginative, it could have been a dream".
Well it was NOT a dream. I had just laid down 5 minutes before it happened!
Please, someone give me some sort of advice, I'm beyond confused!
