Hello everyone, my name is Winter. And for most of my life, my parents kept this dark secret about me that no one knew.
I’ll admit, I wasn’t the most normal kid. It really seemed like I had two different personalities. Sometimes I’d be quiet and calm, I’d be great at focusing and completing tasks. I’d sit around the park just enjoying the birds chirping… but sometimes, I’d wake up and feel so much anger and energy. I’d want to run around, do the craziest things.
One time when I was 10, I nearly set my whole house on fire just playing with fireworks. My parents kind of got used to it, sometimes we’d joke around about it. I’d wake up and they’d say something like “Who are you today—our daughter or the demon?” But when I was 14, I started learning that my parents had a dark secret.
It all started one night. I woke up in the middle of the night and decided to get a glass of water. I walked out of my room and heard my parents talking in their bedroom. I don’t know why, but I decided to listen… I heard my mom asking, “Do you think about Summer, too?” It was the first time I’d heard this name, but I felt like this person must have been someone important. Then my father said, “I know you blame yourself. You shouldn’t.” And my mom started crying… My father added, “We can visit her grave tomorrow.” HER GRAVE? I heard my father coming near the door, so I panicked and went back to my room, but I couldn’t fall asleep for most of the night. Who was Summer? Why would her death have been my mother’s fault?
But the strangest thing is that night, when I eventually fell asleep... I had the strangest dream! I was still about 5 years old, I was playing with a box of matches, and I set the house on fire. I heard my parents’ screams and someone else’s... some woman… or a girl. I woke up drowning in my own sweat. Was it only a dream? I knew that sometimes I had a temper that I couldn’t control, but could I have done something horrible that I didn’t remember? This thought kept bugging me.
