Weeks past and the stares never stopped. You slightly remembered this feeling you had many times when you were little after your parents pasted away.
"Auntie!" You cried as your small feet patted against the floor as you ran down the hall. "Someone's watching my room again!"
your aunt smiled lightly and picked you up. You wrapped your arms securely around her neck as she took you into her room.
"it's probably just your parents watching over you like angels. It's nothing to be afraid." Your aunt reassured petting your (h/l) (h/c) hair gently.
"I don't like angels! They're scary!" You mumbled tightening your grip around her.
Your aunt put you down on the bed.
"Now ____, you shouldn't say those sort of things..." She scolded.
You frowned at the pointless nagging and you rolled your eyes. She continued until she felt she had gotten her point across.
"Go to sleep I'll be in my study." Your aunt said tucking you in and kissing your forehead.
"Don't leave me alone!" You shouted in fear. "They'll come back!"
You're eyes widened and you grabbed your aunts arm.
"Stay with me please." You begged.
Your aunt sat down on the edge of the bed petting your hair again. You calmed down quickly and closed your eyes. Your breathing slowed and you felt yourself slip into a deep sleep.
Many years past to the few days before your aunt's death, of course you at this time had no idea.
"Auntie!" You called from your room.
You had been struggling to put a small bow in your hair. "I need help!"
The reason you didn't call for your personal maid was because of how distant your aunt had become over the past week and you hadn't seen her face for the past three days. Like always when you called for your aunt her butler came instead. You frowned in disappointment.
"why is she avoiding me?" You asked quietly.
Her butler smiled putting the bow in your hair perfectly.
"she is doing for your own good." He said putting a hand on your cheek.
You crossed your arms childishly pouting.
"why is it for my own good? What did I do to deserve being shunned by my own aunt?"
The butler patted your cheek softly, turning in his heels.
"that is between your aunt and I, my dear."
With that the butler left the room.
"Wait!" You called but the butler dressed in all white swept out of the room gracefully and silently.
