1)

Charlotte kneeled beneath the tree and spoke to Jack’s gravestone as if he was really sitting there, next to her. It was something that had become a secret ritual for her since the armies of the night had taken her husband’s life two years ago.

She would come to this spot and pour her guts out every week or so- Telling his grave every detail of her day-to-day life. Things that would never be uttered to her friends and family.

Jack was there, quietly listening beneath the earth. 

2)

Jack had visited her in a dream three nights ago. The two of them had been laughing and joking around while hiking through a dense forest.

“Life hasn’t been the same without you.” Charlotte had said to him.

Jack had stopped walking at that point and had become very serious.

“Do not despair, Charlotte. I will be returning to this world.”

And that had been the end of the dream. She had been crying when she woke up.

3)

Charlotte stood up from the gravesite and walked to the edge of the cemetery. A simple barbed wire fence separated her from the sprawling cornfield on the other side.

The stalks did not even remotely resemble the way they had looked when she had been a child, growing up on the farm. Nearly everything had been genetically modified, and now all of the plant life had a symmetrical appearance to it.

She placed her hands upon the barbed wire and screamed as blood started trickling from her palms.
