The Girl In My Room

It starts by a girl named Mortis moving into an old abandoned house, questioning whether if she’s having nightmares or if she’s just hallucinating
The Girl In My Room

I guess, I started to have those nightmares again, are they even nightmares or am I just hallucinating? It’s been a while since I moved into this house, I remember it being old, rusty, and full of spider webs. A house no one wanted, until my parents bought it and fixed it up.

I remember running around the depths of the house, exploring the items that were left behind. All I saw were paintings, all of those paintings had a little girl in them, but her face was blurred out in all of them. Who was this girl and why was her face blurred out? How could they just smear her face out of these paintings, she kind of looks a little too familiar… Maybe a little too familiar, but I still can’t seem to figure her out.

“Mortis, honey it’s time to sleep, I told you to stop fooling around here again. It looks dead and creepy, I don’t understand how you feel comfortable being in here all by yourself.” She said while looking at me weirdly again. She looks at me as if I’m a bit strange, which I am but still, I’m her daughter.

“Mom, doesn’t that little girl look a little too familiar, like just a little itsy bitsy familiar? I mean look at her.” As I pointed at the paintings.

“Honey, what girl? All I see are flowers in the garden, this is why you should get some sleep. You’re starting to hallucinate again. Seriously get some sleep, Mortis.” She said while pulling me away from the room, leading me to my room, before locking the room.

I spent the night laying in bed being awake again, why couldn’t my mom see her or am I just hallucinating like what she said? Nah I can’t be, because that’ll mean that I’m the crazy one, but I’m not, maybe she is. Whatever, I’ll just close my eyes, and hope I can sleep. I wake up around 2:am, by this small voice, it’s not too loud, but not too silent.

“Hey-hey-hey-,” All I kept hearing was the word hey, I’m trying to look around but I can’t seem to move again. I’m starting to get a little anxious now, and I’m starting to sweat a little. Now I’m starting to hope I’m hallucinating, and that it’s all in my head. And that I’m hearing things and it’s not real.

“Hey, hey,” I look at the corner of my bed and I see a girl. She’s just there looking at me, oh my God. I immediately closed my eyes, but I peeked again and she was there. I kept closing my eyes hoping she’d leave, but each time I opened them, she kept coming closer, and closer and closer. And then I opened my eyes again and she was on top of me, she whispered, “Let me in, let me in, let me in, oh please let me in,” I kept trying to move, but I still couldn’t. “Mortis, Let me in, let me in, LET ME IN!” She kept telling me over and over, that it was starting to play with my head. I tried all my force to see if I was able to move and hoped she’d leave, but she still didn’t.

This keeps happening each night, so I stay wide awake now, with no sleep, scared to sleep in my own bed. And if I do end up accidentally falling asleep, I just try my best to ignore her but each time she wants to get in me.

About the Contributor
Aida Perez-Lopez, Contributor

Hi, my name is Aida Perez and I am one of the contributors for The Breeze. This is my 2nd year being part of The Breeze and it feels quite nice.I’m currently a senior at Santa Maria High School, and I’m going to be part of The Breeze for 2023-2024 school year. I’m hoping that we’ll keep on making progress for the website and make it the best in 2023 and my last year in 2024.

At SMHS I work in the cafeteria as a little side job along with another part-time job out of school. I've been working there since the end of my sophomore year.

My top three favorite movies would be: "10 Things I Hate About You," "Can't Buy Me Love" and "Love Rosie."

During my spare time, (if I'm not working) I like to skate and go around discovering new places (stores, parks, restaurants, thrift stores) while taking pictures. I don't mind if it's far, I'm still down to go for an adventure since I don't like wasting my time, I feel like if I don't do anything when I'm free, I'm wasting my time. I also like to draw on sidewalks (using chalk).

This year, I'm currently trying to do most of the things I want to do, I wanna live without having any regrets. Even if things don't go the way I want them to, I don't get discouraged, I just move on with my life. And keep on fighting for what I want to do, if I'm passionate about it.

I hope we all can be friends and make fun memories before I graduate. Feel free to talk to me, because I like socializing and meeting new people.
