Its only been a few weeks since it happened… but it still feels unreal. One minute you were laughing with your friends and the next you were being shot. The next thing you know you were waking up in the hospital (except for Chris) being told that everything you remember is wrong. That it was a gas explosion. That the people who shot you and your friends were Marshals there to help, the monster that attacked you was a delusion from a gas leak. You also have noticed strange coincidences in the last few week. Objects moving or breaking, hearing voices from people who are not talking, seeing auras around people that give off different feelings. " I’m not crazy" you keep telling yourself, as you recover and start trying to make sense of how to move on with your life.Thankfully some of your friends remember the same things as you and also have had similar strange occurrences.
