Time to look up at the night sky

I sat at my desk, trying to take everything in that I was told today, and looked at the piles of paper from uni. I pushed off and let the papers fall to the ground. I went around and started to pull posters off the wall, also pulling wall paper down. As I pulled the posters down, I saw a letter painted on the wall. I placed the poster on the floor and started to peel the wall paper off the wall.

"I.....Know....Who...You...Are.....Watch...The....Night....Sky...." It read.

I stood back and Lily flew out.

"Your dad is going to kill you" She spoke.

"He hasn't been in here for months. Years after mum died" I spoke.

I picked up my Polaroid camera and took some photos for evidence. I looked at them as I stood at the window and placed them in order, thinking that it would help. I looked at the might sky and something came crashing into the garden. It caused me to jump and I looked down to see something come out of the bushes.

"This will be the last time I'm helping my dad out" He spoke, patting his jacket down from flames.

I opened my window.

"OI!" I shouted.

He jumped and went into the shed wall. He looked up.

"Jack?" I asked.

"Grace? Is that you?" He asked.

"No, its Jack Sparrow. Of course its me" I spoke.

He walked towards the window and I stopped him.

"Wait there. I'll be out in a moment" I spoke.

Lily flew into the trench coat and I picked it up before leaving my room. The nurse and my dad was still talking, which gave me enough time to get away from the house. Jack was waiting and he was wearing the same jacket that I was.

"Wait...Hold the demons and immortal gods, you have the same coat as me" He spoke.

"Keep your voice down. I thought you were dead and not able to come back" I spoke.

He took my arm and took me to the local graveyard.

"Show me where I am" He spoke.

I showed him as we walked down the lane and I showed his grave, which was a pale grey gravestone, which means he only passed away just a few short weeks ago. He looked at it and saw fresh flowers there.

"There's people that really cared about you. Why did you do it?" I asked.

"I don't know. The thought of you going off to uni just pushed me over the edgy." He spoke.

"But joyriding?" I spoke.

He looked at me.

"It was a laugh" He spoke.

"But it killed you and two others. Thankfully, you didn't kill anyone else" I spoke.

We sat on the floor and started to look at the gravestones.

"Why am I here?" He asked.

"The walls between Heaven are breaking down. I can't tell you why because I don't know. But its a matter of time before hell opens up" I spoke.

I was wondering if he was in the flesh so I pinched him.

"OW!" He screamed.

"You're flesh and blood. I think" I spoke.

The town clock rang for midnight and I stood up.

"I need to go" I spoke before running off.

Jack got up and started to follow me. I looked back and started to get faster. Two people looked at me and saw me look at nothing.

"Please, don't leave me in the dark" He pleaded.

"Leave me alone!" I screamed.

I began to run all the way home and closed the door while fumbling to lock the door. I kept my back to the door and ran up to my room. I pulled the jacket off and threw it on my chair.
