Part 23

When Andrew arrived back home, Tracy was sitting in the same spot he left her in. She looked worried. She didnt say a word when he walked in. Just waited for him to speak.

"I just came from the grave yard with Ryan", he told her as he sat down beside her.

"And."

"And..the headstone on your grave was moved, blood was on it. The dirt had been dug up. Do you have any idea why?"

"Why would I? I haven't been anywhere near the grave yard. Well...since...you know."

Andrew shook his head.

"You dont believe me do you", she asked him.

"Honestly I dont know what to believe. I mean you tell me that you've been dealing with some sort of witch craft...."

"Its not witch craft!"

"And all of asudden my cousin calls me..."

"Why was he even there anyway?", she asked.

"He was putting flowers on your grave."

"Oh."

"So your saying you had nothing to do with this?"

"I'm saying I haven't been near the graveyard.

"What did you do exactly?", he asked her.

"I went to a blood bank, I read some stupid words, thats all. Its not like I killed somebody. I wasnt' standing over my grave with some poor humans blood dripping down on my headstone, chanting like some manic pyscho path. Is that really what you think I am. Is this really who you think I've become?"

"Like I said before, I dont know what to think anymore."

She folder her arms and pouted her lips.

"Dont do that.", he said.

She ignored him and continued to pout.

"Your not being fair you know", he said.

"And you are? Your accusing me of being some sort of freak. You should see yourself. I dont like the way you've been looking at me since I told you. I thought we were closer than that. Thought I could tell you anything..everything. Now..Im beginning to think, maybe I should just go away."

"Go away? What do you mean by that."

"Maybe I should just fade away. Stop holding on. Go into the light or whatever dead people are suppose to do."

"Thats not funny", he said.

"Im not laughing. Im serious Andrew. I'm starting to feel like it would be better off if I just gave up, and let you move on. Maybe you'd be happier.

Its gotta be hard for him dealing with losing her then her telling him she can become real again plus the grave being dug up

I wonder if she is acting differently. It seems like he doesn't trust her so she must not be the same person she was before she died and he's picking up on that.
