Elizabeth Lily Heartland
Kyle Phillip Heartland
Rain fell in like bullets on the car's windshield and a streak of lightning flashed across the dark sky, causing Elizabeth to scream. "Kyle! Pull over! The road's going to flood!" She yelled at him. "As soon as we find a hotel or something," He promised her in a smooth voice and she let out a quiet sigh. Elizabeth hated storms, she always had and she always would. Soon, a dark looming shape of a mansion came before them. "There!" Elizabeth yelled and Kyle quickly pulled into the drive-way. Kyle recognized it immediately. "Maybe this isn't a good idea..." He stated, glancing at his little sister with worry in his brown eyes. "What do you mean? The roads are about to turn into rivers!" She argued and he sighed quietly. He knew she didn't remember; not like he did anyway. Maybe small memories. He remembered everything that went on in the house. They both got out of the car and ran to the front steps. Elizabeth was the first to grip the handle and try to open the door but it wouldn't budge; it was locked. She looked around for a key hole and found one. She grabbed a bobby pin out of her long, curly hair. It had been holding up her bangs, which now hung in her face. She quickly and quietly stuck the pin in the lock and moved it around a bit and soon the door swung open. She entered and looked around with wide eyes. The house looked even bigger on the inside than on the outside. She looked back at Kyle who had an uncertain look on his tanned face.
"Elizabeth, what if someone lives here? What if we get caught for breaking into someone's house? We would get charged with trespassing, I'm sure," He stated, looking at her with concern swirling in his deep brown eyes. She rolled her eyes at his comment; making it very obvious what she thought of that. "No one lives here, Kyle. This place has been abandoned for years. Besides, if they do ask we can just say that the road flooded and we had to get out of the storm. Also, where has your sense of adventure gone?" She questioned him and he sighed quietly, giving up. Elizabeth had always been incredibly stubborn and even if she had realized she was gone she would never admit it. She looked around and a light frown crossed her face as she saw a piano sitting in the large entree way of the house; well more of an entree room.
"Kyle, do you feel like you've been here before? Like daja vu?" She questioned and without waiting for an answer she walked over to the piano and sat down on the old bench. "I remember being here... In this house before... Maybe when we were little? No... I remember sitting at this piano and being really upset about something and I had started playing and a man had come with me and he played the piano too, trying to make me feel better I think. By the end we were both laughing and I had forgotten whatever I was upset about. I... I also think he kissed me... But he couldn't have, right? I mean, I've never had a boyfriend or anything..." She said, mostly talking to herself. "I even remember the song..." She said softly and started to play the piano, her delicate fingers seeming to pull themselves around the keys.
