The Life & Mind of Charlotte Massinon
By: Alyssa Pancake
It's about three in the afternoon. The skies are cloudless but the sun isn't hot. It was actually a chilling fifty degrees which wasn't too strange in the month of October.
Charlotte Massinon, a girl of fifteen has entered a tall building to see her doctor on the thirteenth floor. She wasn't seeing the doctor because she was physically ill. No, it was much worse than that.
"Charlotte, how are you today?" Doctor Patenski asked with a bright smile as Charlotte had entered the room.
As usual Charlotte said nothing but sat at the chair closest to the window and turned to stare up at the cloudless sky. Doctor Patenski was used to this reaction but still felt a somewhat sinking feeling of disappointment in his gut. Nevertheless, he tried again.
"How was school today?" He asked still with his bright smile. "Have you made any friends yet?"
Charlotte didn't move from her spot on the chair nor did she breathe a word. Doctor Patenski sighed and thought this was about the time he should give up on the questions and just wait for her to talk. Although, Charlotte never talked so instead he decided to go to his computer to type up some documents of his other patients.
"No," Doctor Patenski looked up from his computer surprised. Did Charlotte Massinon actually speak?
Charlotte's face was still turned toward the window so he thought he might have just been hearing things. Maybe his wishful thinking was getting the better of him.
"I don't have any friends," Charlotte said softly and turning her bottomless, soulless eyes toward Doctor Patenski.
Patenski was a bit in shock of hearing her first words to ever have spoken to him that he forgot that he too had a voice. Was this a miracle?
"Why?" Was all Patenski could think to say.
"Well, actually, I have three," She said looking up at the ceiling with that same soft voice.
"Well that's wonderful. Who are they?" Patenski asked hopeful that she had finally have found the first step to healing. "Do you have any classes with them?"
"I have every class with them," She replied staring again back at Patenski with those deep blue eyes.
"Every class? That must make you very close," Patenski went on.
"Yes, we're very close. Closer than any other people," Charlotte replied and then turned to stare out the window again.
The way she said her last sentenced unsettled Patenski. What did she mean by closer than other people? Did she just mean that they were best friends?
"Charlotte, what do you mean that they are closer to you than any other people?" Doctor Patenski asked.
Charlotte didn't reply. Her looking to the window must have meant she was done talking but Patenski needed to know more about these "friends" Charlotte had gained.
"Has your parents met your friends?" Patenski asked curiously.
"Not really, not that they know of," Charlotte replied still looking out the window.
"What do you mean not that they know of?" Patenski was getting a bit worried now. Had she made friends with some bad people? "Charlotte, are these friends of yours… real?"
"Of course, they're always with me," She replied still looking out the window. "Even now."
Patenski's eyes widened as he realized what she was saying. Her condition wasn't getting better. It had just worsened.
"Charlotte, are these friends… inside your mind?" Patenski asked a bit afraid as to what her reaction would be.
Charlotte actually smiled if not smirked. He'd never seen her expression change from soulless zombie before. It frightened him a bit even though he was a grown man and she was only a sophomore in high school.
"Yes, doctor," She replied.
"So you haven't made any friends at school at all?" He asked unable to accept the fact that Charlotte had only imagined her friends.
"I don't want friends," Charlotte scowled. "These three are all I need."
A/N: Hey guys! Pancakegirl here! Just wanted to let you know the first chapter will be up soon. I just wanted to at least get the prologue in. btw I normally write in first person POV because I like writing that way but the prologue is like this because I didn't want to use Charlotte's POV since she has a messed up mind and wouldn't make any sense to the reader and Patenski isn't fun enough to get into his mind so I just used 3rd person POV. Oh and most of you know me as the author of Captain Pancake, if you haven't read it, please do! Only 2-3 more chapters left til I finish that one.
Anyway I hope you like this so far and believe me it will be a lot more funny in the next chapter and more to come. It just starts out kinda creepy and serious. The people in her head you will meet soon they are SOOOO freaking funny and believe me, I think you'll love them. :D Read and Review please :)
