It is dark. I am driving home from work. I was almost home when out of nowhere the worst blizzard to every hit Celandine. I couldn't see a thing in front of me. Everything is a blur. I was tossed into the guardrail by the wind. Everything went black. I woke to friends and family around. My best friend Daffodil holding a bunch of daffodils, to no surprise, was standing closest.
"She's waking up. Give her some room," I heard one of them say as I tried to get up. I sat up in the hospital bed.
"Rosia, honey, are you feeling better?" my mom asked.
I replied weakly, "How many times do I need to tell you? My name isn't Rosia."
My mom told the others annoyed, "Yeah, she's fine." It seemed as if she wanted me to be hurt or she just hated my comeback to her dumb nickname.
Daffodil walks up to me and said, "I was worried sick when I got the call from your mom."
I replied more strongly, "Don't worry I can take care of myself just fine." She began to tell me how bad it really was then stopped almost as soon as she started. Everyone left besides Daffodil and me; I laid there in some pain but tried hard not to show it. Daffodil told me that blizzard I was caught in came really did out of nowhere. Also, someone must have wanted me out of the way. I shuddered quickly at the thought of death by another human's hand. Likely, she didn't notice. I, to her, was always so strong in body and mind. I'd hate to disappoint her after all we'd been through. I knew then, it was up to me to solve this mystery. I tried to get up but at that moment the nurse came in to tell her that visiting hours were over.
I thought about who would do this as I drifted off to sleep. I awake to a strange place. Something is in the dark…hiding.
"Where am I?" I wonder aloud.
It answered coming out of the darkness, "You are here. And here is Yin-Yang, the most peaceful and spirited place on this side of the Milky Way. Many come for a day or two, to find truth of themselves, of others, and of problems they face."
"Ok…so why am I here?" I asked trying to take it all in.
"Don't ask me. Ask yourself," It said as it vanished.
I looked around scared. I gulped, "No where…life can be seen."
(Tigers roar in distance)
"Better go!" I told myself in fear. I move away some leaves to reveal a small pathway, a small sign of light can barely be seen.
I begin to run along the path. Faster and faster I run. "Oh no, now what will I do!" I think as I see a fork in the road, on the left a thin curved path and the right a wide, beaten-up straight one. Something inside me is saying that I should take the one less traveled by. So I follow my heart and go left. It got pretty tough, but I just kept going. It paid off as I neared the end… a door! I open it. "So bright!" I cried as I crawled through. I open my eyes to find nothing but darkness and a few moving panels. One stopped in front of me. "No time to think! Hop on!" rang in my ears. I did as I was told for once. It began to move, taking me with it! It and another stopped beside each other. "Jump now before it's too late!" rang my ears this time. I made it just in time. They move again, drifting farther and farther apart. I jumped from panel to panel. After what felt like a thousand jumps I made it to the top. I saw two people noses in the air backs towards each other with a closer look revealed they were me! I walked up to the one wearing all white that looked friendly-er. "Okay, they're me and very likely I've gone mad but there are no killer animals around, right. There is one up-side. Now, where's my sanity?" I thought to myself quietly. Both turned around to face me. "They can read minds? Oh no, help…someone, anyone?" I thought. I began to cower. "Stop scaring her," the white one said sweetly but angrily. I looked at them with an I-know-NOW-for-sure-I've-gone-completely-insane look on my face. The black-dressed one stepped up and said towards me, "Rose…" I cut her off, "No, I'm not listening to either of you till you tell me where I am and who you are. And don't dare say you're me because," I point at the white-dressed one, "you're too nice and," I point back to the black-dressed one, "you're too evil." I turned heel, crossed my arms, and they talked back-and-forth about what to do next. I waited a second then "Wait, how can I hear them so clearly? When they're on the other side of this large panel but it sounds like they're right next to me," I thought. The twosome came towards me from behind. I can feel them there. I said acting innocent, "What?" They say together, "No way other than this to say it I'm afraid. We are your consciences." They cringe in fear. I turned and looked at them. Only words can be stop with ease too bad mine won't, "YOU THINK JUST BECAUSE I WAS DRAGGED HERE AGAINST MY WILL. YOU TWO CAN TELL ME LIES AND I'LL BELIVE THEM FOR THE HECK OF !I WON''S ALL A DREAM. I NEED TO WAKE UP! BE ANY WHERE BUT HERE LOOKING FOR THE PERSON WHO TRIED TO KILL ME!"(They came out like a screech near the end) Tears in my eyes and I'm breathing very heavy. All I want right then was to go home. I'm crying from pain, anger, sadness, and many other emotions that would take to long to list. They just stood there, watching; stunned. It hurt me worst the fact some one was seeing me cry. Normally, people were no where near when I had my breakdowns. I felt so weak now. Then the white spoke(I wish she didn't)"Rose, it's okay to cry but now you must find the one trying to kill you for a reason or another." her words comfort me but I couldn't pull myself together right at that moment. Then a burst of hatred came with the next words I heard. "Rose! You're going to let this guy almost kill you and just sit around. This isn't the Rose I know nor is it the one Daffodil knows and looks up to! You're just a wuss who acts. I bet even Lazy Luke can can beat you in a fight…."I screeched my words in anger, "NO LAIR! I'M A FIGHTER!I CAN BEAT YOU RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW!" Then middle rant I hear her saying to the other, "Told you if I got her angry enough she would stop crying like a baby." It was a plan. They tricked me. Now all I feel is anger and betrayal. I didn't recognize my own voice whoever is talking is a calm middle aged female, "I'm not going to get anywhere by staying here any longer. I understand you are parts of me but you are not me. I need to make my choices not as light or dark but as a whole Rose." Both smiling. "You pass our test. You may return to your path and the choices you must make." A door appears six steps from me. I walk towards it but I can't feel myself. It is as though I'm floating in a lake and someone else is controlling my body.
