Heather pushed the basket of french fries away from her as she lost interest in them. She slumped back in her seat and stared out of the window to the outside world. She wondered if anything would finally place itself in the right spot, would anything ever be normal again. Heather almost smiled at the thought. /How could anything be normal anymore, not after what I witnessed and what I am a part of/. Heather just closed her eyes breifly and fought back the urge to scream. She so longed for things to be right again with her mind. She had feared that she was going to crack and end up in an asylum somewhere. She was feeling rather alone in the present world.
After she paid her check, Heather left the diner and stepped out into the cool air of twilight. She walked to her car and got into the driver seat and closed the door behind her. Before she started the car she sat back and looked at herself in the rearview mirror.
"My name is Cheryl, not Heather anymore. Cheryl is who I really am." Saying this to herself seemed to ease her mind and logically appeared to be a good place to start on the road to making things right with her mind.
She started the ignition and began her car ride home. She flipped through some CD's she had and came across one of her favorites. She smiled as the lyrics started.
"Blue sky to forever,
Green grass blows in the wind,
It would be a much better sight with you,
::I know a bit short but I will get more length to it as the plot develops::
