Ominously a dark object, which was looming further down my path, began to take shape. My heels slid in the cold mud nearly catapulting me into a crash landing. Then I was trapped with nothing to do but stare at the girl who reflected horror from the large mirror in my path. “Murderer,” she whispered.Life was a fog filled maze with the only legible image being the twisted version of myself that everyone else saw. The accusations surrounded me fueling a pain that was so significant that it threatened to tear away everything I knew. There were times when I would begin to look at my reflection and see a monster- a demented murderer who took the life from a little girl. That is not true though and I knew it… However, besides the Police only I knew my innocence. Andrea was my pride and joy and being that I was her babysitter she was my responsibility as well. If only she knew how hard I tried to save her life…Not only do my peers think that I killed her but I see the unmistakable doubt in the eyes of my family members as well. Time has passed sense Andrea’s death and without a perpetrator in custody everyone’s suspicion has shifted in my direction. When my terrifying nightmares begin to inflict physical injury however, that is when I start to realize that Andrea blames me as well. In between everyone’s suspicion and Andrea’s paranormal attacks, which make it very hard to appear normal, it was nearly impossible to keep myself sane and therefore out of jail. As time ticked by Andrea’s spirit grew even stronger and in turn more dangerous, which gave her the advantage in her vengeful quest to frame me for murder and namely ruin my life. The race was on as I fought to protect myself and my family members from forces that I never even knew existed and to reveal the truth to the world about who was the true murderer in the case of Andrea Budeva.
