I walk to it, and open it.
It is one of the guards.
"Miss, I am to take you to the basement.
There are riots.
Please Miss, for your safety." he says.
Why would the guards suddenly care for my family's safety?
We are prisoners of the rebellion.
But, I get up, and follow him
to the cellar.
I see my family there.
My sisters, my father and mother.
The guards gather us together.
Their leader pulls out a slip of paper.
He starts reading the orders that we are to be executed,
Before any of us can do anything,
he takes a pisol, and fires at my father's head.
He collapses in a growing stream of blood.
My mother is praying.
She gets shot too,
before she can finish her prayer.
Then they turn to us.
Now I have completely registered in my mind that I,
Daughter of the Russian Tsar,
will die tonight,
in this basement.
The guard that led me here
fires at my chest.
The bullet somehow bounces off my corset.
The other guards shoot at my siste

Sit down, Sunbeam, I'll read to you
And though you're so young now
I'll teach you just like I ought to
I'm your sister, I'm your friend, and I'll always love you
Stay still, Sunbeam, I'll hold your hand
And though I can't stop the bleeding
We are here, we are waiting, we are praying for you
Come here, Sunbeam, come dance with me
And though you shouldn't run too fast
I hope you will see
You are ours, you are safe here, we won't ever leave
Wait here, Sunbeam, I'll get what you need
And though you're already growing up
We must make sure you don't bleed
Don't move, don't cry, don't ask me why
I know you're scared, Sunbeam, know I am too
And though I can't say what will happen
I hope we'll make it through
We will go back; return, we will bow to you
I'm reaching for you, Sunbeam, I'm searching for you
And though it is hopeless
I confess I thought they withdrew
I can't find you, I've lost you, don't know where you are

For some reason, I honestly don't know why, I have decided to write about my epileptic experiences through the eyes of Kurt Hummel. Why him out of all the characters? Chris Colfer. I should say Chris Colfer's sister, Hannah.
I read about Hannah Colfer's story about a month ago and reading about what Chris' mom does for Hannah really struck a chord with me. For me, my seizures onset when I was 14 years old and just under a week before my 15th birthday, I was diagnosed with Generalized Tonic-Clonic Epilepsy. The neurologists that I have seen for nearly the past 5 years have no idea what the causes of these seizures are and, with the cause remaining unknown, all we can do is treatment by medication.
I write this story in hopes that maybe awareness for Epilepsy is raised. For people like myself and Hannah Colfer, we need all the help that the people are willing to provide. Epilepsy research is underfunded and needs to be brought into a light that will allow researchers to do their jobs.

A lesion of radiant light fractured the pagan black sky as a tempest of canon fire churned through it. Upon the deck below you, from where you stood, a theatre of death took place and it was executed with a sinful excellence. The heavens wept as the heinous acts unfolded before them and you stared through the cracks of the frosted portholes. The colossal ship shuddered deliciously under each calamitous impact whilst the lulling of the waves was deafened by the screams of men. Sparks flew, illuminating the brooding sky, as the sickening crunch of silver and gunfire echoed ominously. You extended your neck out, intrigued by the battle that acted like a plague, consuming the very essence of human vitality.
You watched in delight as you recognised a certain Italian, who had managed to obtain a sustainable frying pan in the mist of the chaos, emit a bizarre battle cry. His movements were eccentric yet, the intensity of his actions dominated all those that dared to challenge him.

The world of dreams was but a constant swirl, ever changing and inconstant yet so full of color. All sound, taste, touch and sight felt so real despite the absurdity. And in the realm where dreams rule all, time is nothing but a distant memory, deprived of any control. A second is but a decade, a minute a century and a day an eternity with no end in sight.
But alas, dreams must end.
The calling of gulls disturbed the sweet silence of the world, and your eyes fluttered open as your body stirred. The glowing light from beyond the door tried to pierce wherever the light could touch, even trying to break through the bottom of the door into darkness.
Rubbing your eyes, your mind sought to recount your days at sea but in returning from dreams, time was all but lost.
