Invisible- Part 22Sarah held onto Rebel's shoulder for comfort as she warily observed the strange landscape. Rebel had brought her to a clearing, overrun with weeds and plants that must have once been well cared for but had been forgotten over time. Tendrils of ivy and roses climbed up an ancient wrought iron fence taller than the girl if she had stood on the Nightmare's head. Twilight had long since fallen, leaving Sarah and her shadow horse in total darkness save for the light cast by the waning moon hanging in the sky above them. A pale mist snaked along the ground, rendering all it consumed invisible. Sarah began to shiver slightly, imagining all the horrors that could be hiding under the cover of darkness. In her mind disembodied hands crawled along the cold ground, reaching for her ankles, crawling up her legs, crawling over her face. Sarah squeaked, suddenly terrified by the thoughts her imagination often wielded. The Nightmare by her side sensed her fear, nuzzling her shoulder comfortingly
Invisible- Part 20"What is that?" She exclaimed excitedly, pointing towards the nebulous dreamsand. Jack smiled victoriously, proud that he had found a way for Sarah to see the Sandman without resorting to tricks again. "That's the Sandman." He explained, opening the window. "He's the Guardian of Dreams. It's his job to protect the children from nightmares and to open them up to new worlds." Jack moved out of the window sill to allow a tendril of gossamer dreams to flow into the room. Sarah's face was alit with wonder and joy, an expression that seemed to be a rare occurrence for the girl. The Guardian smiled again, clutching his staff in one hand. "Come on, meet me outside. You'll really be blown away by the show!" He chuckled, perching on the windowsill as he waited for a response. Transfixed by the golden glow, Sarah nodded slowly. "There's more?" She asked. Jack laughed, "More than you could dream of!"Invisible- Part 203 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

When Jack didn't respond Sarah began to feel the silence weighing down her heart. She had never told anyone the story of how her mother died, or how when her father had returned and found his children she had been so weak she fell next to her mother's corpse. How after three days in the hot Nevada weather, she had bugs crawling over her. Or how she had been covered in her blood.
Sarah was scared, but for a new reason. Her nightmares had started long before her mother had been killed, but they had gotten so much worse after the bad man had visited her. She never told anyone because who would want to

Sarah looked at her hands, frozen stiff in the water, terrified.
My hands can't be turning blue. Not already. It's just a trick of the water. Just a trick.
Sarah kept repeating this to herself, trying to kick herself to the surface. Each dull movement was weak and strained, hardly enough to keep herself from sinking faster.
No! No, no, no, NO!
She struggled again, pushing her dull frozen limbs to their limit and beyond. "PLEASE!" Water rushed into her lungs again; cold, sharp, and painful.
Please… Someone… Anyone... Help me, I don't want to die. Not like this. Not now.
She couldn't move. Couldn't breathe. The cold was surrounding her on every side. Her lungs had devoid themselves of what little oxygen they had left. The hypothermia had set in, and Sarah could no longer kee

Handfuls of kids rushed by the thinker, each in his or her own group, each ignoring her existence, even when one group pushed into her, they only stopped to see it was her before continuing on their way.
It's been months. Can't they get over the fact I'm here? Big whoop. I'm not asking to be the center of attention, but would it kill them to acknowledge me? I'm just a shadow!
Instead of going home, she found herself wandering in the woods. It was late November, almost December and the ground was covered in a light glittering frost. The air was warm enough to only need a light coat, but cold enough that the individual tendrils of ice stayed pristine. The girl stopped and looked around, "Wow…" She murmured. In her absentminded wanderings she had found hersel

Jack struggled to the surface, towing the unconscious girl under one arm. He looked down at her and became even more worried, her lips were turning a pale blue and her skin had no color to it at all. If the water felt cold to even him, he could only imagine what it would feel like to someone like her or Jamie. Looking up, Jack could see the hope of the sun shining though the frigid water, he pushed himself harder than before.
"Jack!" Jamie shouted, seeing the faint outline of his friend's snow white hair. In frenzy Jamie scrambled for the staff Jack had slammed into the ice, sending it into the water. "Grab on Jack!" He shouted, "Grab on!" The young boy was made to seem so much smaller by the panic across his face. "Jack… Please… I need you..."
It only took an instant for all the despair on Jamie's face to melt away, the second that he felt Jacks grip on his staff, his face lit up.

The silence drew in closer, wrapping itself around the woods, calming the flickering leaves, leaving nothing but the stifling echoes of unanswered questions. Jack crossed his arms, refusing to budge on his request. Sarah glared back at the teen, "It's none of your business." She growled, "Leave me alone." She began walking away, clearly planning to break into a run. Jack shook his head and sighed, simply holding out his staff and blocking her way. He flipped the knotted wood over his shoulder, "Sarah." He said warningly. "You know who I am. Do you really think that you can get away from me?" He swung the staff through the air, hitting a tree. Frost patterns crawled up the bark of the tree, covering the branches and icing over the few remaining leaves. He laughed slightly, "Even if I wasn't Jack Frost; Jamie and Cupcake are still best friends and they both care about you." He pointed the curled tip of the staff in the girl's face. "Jamie's the one wh

Jamie shuddered, "How could I forget? There were so many…" He tucked his knees up to his chest, "Why are you bringing them up now?" he asked. Jack sighed and put a comforting hand the younger boys shoulder. I remember the last time you used that voice… When Pitch cornered us in the ally. You said you were scared. "Don't worry Jamie, I won't let them hurt you." He said evenly, watching the fear in the younger boys eyes. "What do you mean they won't? Are they back? Is that why you're talking to Sarah?" Jamie's lip quivered, "Will there be more than before?" Jack sighed, "I don't know… I don't even know if they'll be back. But if they are back," He shook his head, "Then so is

She squealed, her eyes lighting up at the sight of the messy haired girl. "You came!" Cupcake laughed, "Of course I did! Why wouldn't I? Jamie said you were awake so I came over as soon as I could." As Cupcake struggled to get on the bed, Sarah noticed that her leg was in a cast. "Hey, CC? What happened to your leg?" She asked, pulling her up and onto her lap. Cupcake shifted uncomfortably on her lap. "Nothing…" She replied, not looking her cousin in the eyes. Sarah frowned, "Cupcake. What wrong?

Jack turned his head to face Sarah swaying form, "You're not taking this very well, are you?" He asked rhetorically. "Nhhhg…" Sarah incoherently moaned, holding a hand to her forehead. Jack sighed. "You're not going to faint on me are you?" He asked, considering it to be quite possible. "I'm… I'm not sure…." Sarah replied shakily, laying down and curling up like a cat.
Invisible- Part 15Sarah sighed, dropping two steaming mugs of hot chocolate on the knotted wood table. "You always get what you want, don't you?" She asked darkly, glaring at the shock of white hair in her kitchen. Jack leaned back against the equally knotted chair, cockily swinging his feet on to the table. "Not always. Remind me to tell you about that some time." Sarah slid into another chair, "Ok. You've had your hot chocolate. Now spill. Tell me about the nightmares and how you know about Jamie finding me." She demanded evenly, hoping once and for all to get the answers she needed. Jack leaned forward, holding the steaming mug in both hands, feeling the burning heat rushing through his long since frozen limbs with each sip. "I don't know what causes your nightmares." He said at last, sky blue eyes twinkling mischievously. "But," he continued, "I do know that there's something strange about you." Insulted, Sarah glared at Jack.

The night later found Jack sitting on the edge of the Sandman's golden cloud, watch the streets fill with beautiful dancing dreams. Unicorns and dragons, racing dolphins, thousands of fluttering butterflies and sparrows swarmed the air, creating beautiful patterns in front of the glowing moon. The Sandman smiled at Jack as the younger Guardian occasionally made exclamations such as, "Those unicorns! They're Cupcake's right?" Or "Hey, That's Bunnymund! That must be Sophie's!"
These were the times the Sandman liked best, when Jack stood by him during the dream calling. It made him happy to see the jo

As if to answer her, the wind began to pick up, whirling the fresh dusting of snow into the air, whipping it around her in a frantic circle. Sarah stepped back instinctively, tripping over something heavy. She looked down immediately at whatever had caused her to lose her balance. "My bag?" She whispered, gingerly picking up the canvas bag she had left behind days before. Noticing something amiss, she reached inside, her fingers brushing against a crisp, cool object.

It was all very quiet. The electric fire flickered merrily, casting an orange hue on the walls and warming the room. Paintings of all shapes and sizes hung on the walls, alternately between family portraits and photos. The paintings were all beautifully done, most of them depicting a grassy meadow with large egg-shaped rocks with faces on them and tiny colourful Easter eggs with legs running about the place.
A bed was positioned in one corner of the room. An elderly woman lay in it, eyes shut and fast asleep. Her face was wrinkled just like any other old woman's, and her body was thin and weak.
