I began my meditation to begin the spirit transfer. I then traveled back into my soul as usual, and looked around. This time there was no shining objects anywhere. I didn't know how to get into my sprit self, then realized that I already was. That's how I travel through my soul. I looked down and I was again wearing the dress. I looked around for an opening to exit my body. After searching for a couple minutes, I found a door that said: CONTROL ROOM. I walked inside to see 5 simple buttons on a table, and a T.V on the wall. The buttons were labeled: SEE, HEAR, TASTE, FEEL, and SMELL.
This isn't useful, its just my senses. Out of curiosity, I pressed the SEE button. The T.V came on and I saw what my body was seeing. I was staring at Ezra and Jansen who was sitting in front of me, and Eddy pacing behind them mumbling something. I pressed HEAR to see what he was saying.
"How long will this take?" Eddy questioned, still pacing.
"A while. Its al lot of work to travel through your soul, she also has to find her way out." Jansen answered.
"How does she find her way out?" Ezra inquired while Eddy kept pacing.
"Considering it being her, she'll find the control room. This has the five senses, and it shows what the body is seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, and feeling. Once in there, she'll find a switch that says 'off'. This switch basically kills her, sending her soul out of her body."
I repressed the buttons, turning off the T.V. I walked around, searching for the off switch. Eventually I found a case with caution tape all over it sitting in a corner. I opened the box to see a big red button. This must be it… I hesitated a moment, considering that I was getting ready to kill myself, then reached down and quickly pressed the button. The whole control room began shaking, then these sirens began sounding along with a couple of red, flashing lights.
I began feeling dizzy, then the floor felt as if it was being pulled away from me. I opened my eyes for a moment to see myself staring at a glowing ball that seemed to be on fire. Is that my soul? It's on fire… I floated they for a while staring at the glowing light. Soon the ball began shooting towards me. I was startled and couldn't move, I couldn't take my eyes off of the magnificent glowing sphere. As the ball came closer, to my surprise it got smaller. It finally shot inside of me then I was shooting somewhere with my soul inside of me now.
I closed my eyes tight afraid of what I was going to see. I eventually got the courage to open my eyes, and what I saw was weird. I saw my lifeless body laying in Ezra's lap, he seemed to be panicking. Then I saw Jansen come over to him, whispering words to him. I floated closer to hear what They were was saying. "It's going to be ok, she'll come back. She is probably a ghost floating around right now." Jansen comforted him.
"What if she cant get out of Jill? And what if she can't get back into her own body?" Ezra began panicking even more.
"It's going to be fine, Zundae has a strong soul. Just believe in her." Jansen tried to encourage him, but I could see he was a little worried too. I floated over to Ezra to give him a hug before I left, but my arms went through him.
"What was that?!" Ezra screamed, he began shaking. Eddy and Jansen looked over, and they both smiled. I guess they could see me, so I tried to talk to them.
"Tell him that I'll be back." I smiled. Jansen looked at me confused, then pointed to his ears.
"We cant hear you, you're a ghost." Jansen informed me. Ezra jerked his head around to see who he was talking to, he couldn't see me though. I just smiled at them, and floated on to my target. I looked at the frozen Jill. She had her arms crossed and seemed angry. I sighed and tried to get inside her.
I found myself in a dark room looking at another shining ball with some kind of aura around it. That's Jill's soul, and the aura is the ghost. I went over to her soul and went inside. When in, I saw Jill frozen in a corner. I thought something was wrong with her, then noticed that she was frozen. I went over to her and put my arms around her so she wouldn't be unfrozen with the ghost.
I heard this voice in my head, it sounded like Jansen. "Hey! Zundae, can you hear me? I'm using telepathy to talk to you." we had just recently learned how to use the telepathy by my mother when she came to visit one day.
"Yeah, I hear you. I found Jill, it's safe for you to start."
"Alright." I stayed there for a moment, then I heard this screaming. I looked to see Jill still frozen. That must be the ghost… I hugged Jill tighter to keep her from moving. Moments later, I could hear Jansen again. The mission was successful, you can let go of Jill now. To get you out, I'm going to have to exorcize you. When I do this, try your best to get back to your body, and not float away to…well….heaven I guess."
"Alright, I'll try." This was going to be the hard part, I let go of Jill and stood up. Suddenly, I could see these giant hand-like things forming out of nowhere. They came for me and grabbed me, when they did I was shooting out of her body. Once out, the hands kept a hold of me trying not to let me go. The hands dragged me to my body, then dropped me. I plummeted to my body, and fell inside. I remember falling into my soul, then everything went black.
I woke up in a bed, but it wasn't mine. I looked around to see where I was, but I didn't recognize it. The walls were grey with yellow stripes. I stood up and became really dizzy. I instantly sat down to prevent from falling.
"Looks like someone is finally awake." I looked up to see Jansen standing in the doorway shirtless.
"Where am I? What happened? Why are you shirtless?" I questioned him.
"When you entered back into your body, you lost your spiritual energy which resulted in you passing out. Me and Ezra carried you here to my house, but it started getting late so Ezra had to leave. Oh, and I just now got out of the showers, sorry." he laughed and blushed.
"This is your room?"
"Yeah, you feeling better yet?" he came over and sat next to me. He put his hand on my forehead. "You were running a fever earlier, that's why I brought you here. My mom knows some home-made remedies for stuff like this."
"Thanks…" I smiled at him and he smiled back. Oh god, not this feeling again. I thought I was over him… I looked away, "I feel really dizzy, I can't stand up."
"Yeah, your gonna feel like that for a while. Hopefully, you'll feel better for band camp later."
"What time is it?"
"Its two in the morning."
"Seriously? I slept that long?"
"Yeah, you couldn't really help it. Oh, and Jill is fine. She recovered well and didn't find out anything."
"That's great…can I ask you a question?"
"Yeah, what is it?" he looked at me confused.
"Why did you say no to Jill, really? I mean, if it was really Jill, would you have?"
He looked at my surprised by my question, "I would still have said no."
"Why? You seemed like you really liked her."
"Because I barely know her. The only reason why I act like I like her is because I want to be friends with your friends. Plus, I only like one girl and will not except anyone else. You know that." I sighed, I knew he was talking about me. "But if you are happy with Ezra, I wont bother you about it. I don't care about me, as long as your happy." I looked at him. How can he still like me this much? And why do I still feel weird around him?
"Jansen… I need to tell you something."
"What is it?"
"The only reason I'm dating Ezra is that I thought I liked him. Plus, that I thought that you weren't ready for a girlfriend. I thought if I did this, I would be able to get over you, because I really liked you…a lot. I thought if things went to far between us…it would be weird… I was scared. But, I don't think I'm over you. It's nice being with Ezra and all but…he doesn't give me the same feeling…" I was trying to explain my feelings that I barely understood myself.
"Zundae I am ready whenever you are, you know I am. The only reason I didn't make a move is because I was scared of rejection. I didn't know that you liked me back… and trust me, nothing will become strange between us. This feeling is way to natural to ignore… Besides, dating and marriage is just a title and I don't care about that stuff. I just care about being with you, no matter what we are called.. Friends, boyfriend and girlfriend, heck even brother and sister! I don't care, as long as I'm with you."
His words hit me hard, but felt so sweet. It was like doing a belly-flop into a pool filled with pudding. The impact hurts, but it tastes so good. I noticed that I really do love Jansen, and I didn't need to run from it like I had been doing. "I…think I feel the same way." I smiled at him and gave him a hug. He was at first surprised, but then hugged me back. "Jansen, I will always want you and there's nothing I can do about it." I felt so warm in his arms.
"But, what about Ezra?" he said pulling away. "I mean, he is your boyfriend."
"Yeah, not for long though. I hope he'll understand."
"He probably will. You need to get some sleep before band camp and practice later. Do you want me to take you home?"
"Yeah.." he carried me all the way home and put me in my bed after explaining what happened to my parents.
