Attic, part 60

Jenny was torn. On the one hand she wanted to go back into the room, to rescue her grandmother from this strange force that was holding her. On the other hand, she wasn’t sure that it was the right thing to do. There were clearly things about this that she didn’t understand. What if her grandmother Amelia was actually in the right place? Although it seemed completely alien — incomprehensible — perhaps there was another way of existing, a way of being outside of time, that was also ok.

She looked at her friends. None of them could possibly understand what she was feeling. None of them had ever been outside of time. For them, things were easy. One thing happens, and then another, and then something else. It’s all so simple when things happen in order. But what if things aren’t that simple?

But they were her friends — and the ones she trusted the most. There was no getting around it — she would have to talk with them about this, even though the things she was talking about would probably sound crazy.

Jenny took a deep breath. This wasn’t going to be easy.
