STORY:

There is no once upon a time, this is a story. And if you're looking for a perfect tale with a perfect ending, then this isn't for you. We're in the middle of this story. This narrative teaches you about perspective. This is Dr. Apples story. I'm being vague, but it will all make sense later, whatever. Just learn from him, so you won't live a life of regrets and limits. This is why I'm telling you this story. Dr. Apples doesn't live a life with limitations. His life as well lived. You should be too. Upon arriving home by sunset. Dr. Apples ran to his room, filled with his findings. Nothing had been touched. He called to his mother.

Teen Dr. Apples: Mama.

Lacie:  To see if she had seen anyone come by.

Teen Dr. Apples: Mama.

Lacie: She was out, perhaps someone messed with the outside of the home. He walked around the shotgun house and noticed that everything was pristine. Dr. Apples frowned, as the grass blades poked his bare toes. The bottoms of his pajama pants were slightly drenched from touching the damp grass. There's no reason for someone to play such a trick. This had to be a trick, right? Don't they know who he is and what he is capable of. This 16-year-old is invincible, right? His face evoked emotions ranging from anger to perplexity all while daydreaming about various scenarios. Had he finally gone mad? Yes, he's finally insane. The wooden floor squeaked, as he rocked back and forth in the rocking chair from the afternoon, right into the night. Dr. Apples pondered on the meaning behind the trickery, his left hand, tap the chair while his right hand clenched into a fist.

Teen Dr. Apples: This is pointless, stupid and evasive. What kind of power play is this? It's an odd yet foolish one, I must say. I mean, how could I lie down in bed and end up awake by the Creek?

Lacie:  Oh yeah. These mind games aren't for the faint of heart. The only one he knew who would be so devious. So intelligent. So dastardly created to do such a thing would be himself.

Teen Dr. Apples: Hmm.

Lacie:  After hours of pondering, he found himself wondering, where the hell was his mother?

Dr. Apples: Hmm, she still isn't home. This unlike her. It's way too late. Something must be wrong. I checked my room before, but did I ever hers?

Lacie:  Abruptly, he jolted from the rocking chair. It fell to the side and by the time it hit the floor, he was in his mother's room. The room was clean. The bed was made up as usual and nothing was out of place. He squinted his eyes to focus more before noticing a small pillow on the center of the bed. This wasn't his mother's pillow. No, this pillow was soft to the touch and clash with his mother's coverlet. The seams were hand stitched together and there was something on it. Whatever it was, it wasn't heavy because there was little to no dent on the pillow. As Dr. Apples move closer towards it the room was quiet. When he reached the bed, he noticed that the pink pillow had a beautifully carved ornament. It was a doll that seemed familiar, but he had never seen it before.

Teen Dr. Apples: Hmm.

Lacie:  He had heard of these kinds of dolls, but couldn't recap the specifics immediately. His fingers were spaced apart. The curious hands wanted to touch the doll, but apprehension settled in. He snatched the doll into his right hand with force, immediately he felt the essence of his mother.

Teen Dr. Apples: What?

Lacie:  Her love, the smile, joy, the memories, the little nothings of her humming as she walked past him in the hallway.

Teen Dr. Apples: Wow.

Lacie:  With his palm connected to the piece, he felt a strong vibration within the vibration intensified, as it moved from his palm to his wrist, arm and finally into his heart, his heart began to pound.

Teen Dr. Apples: What?

Lacie:  The vibration, turned into shocks. Dr. Apples felt a spirit around his body.

Teen Dr. Apples: What?

Lacie:  It smelled like her, the subtle aroma of Casablanca lilies, the aroma in case the room, he slowly peeled each finger to examine the sculpture. It resembled his mother in an eerie way.

Teen Dr. Apples: Mommy, [echoed mom, mom, mom, mom 05:51].

Lacie:  Instinctively. He knew she was missing and this was in her place. Why?
