That one night..

It was about midnight and I was on my way home, coming from a night out with some friends in the town. Had a couple of shots and cocktails and I felt not drunk but nice.I was surprised but grateful that I got a bus heading my way at this hour.

There were five passengers on board a young couple,a middle aged man with a baby and a old lady. I sat near the old lady and the bus took off, I found it strange that a baby and an elderly were out this late,but who knows,they could be coming from the hospital I thought.

I shifted my body to the side, closed my eyes and decided to rest for about 10 minutes,I could hear the couple giggling and whispering in the back sit and the old lady seemed to be dozing off. The man was baby talking as he rocked the child in his arms.

I don’t know what happened but I was sound asleep when I heard a lady scream my name, so I startled and answered but by the look of everyone it wasn’t any of them. The couple were kissing now and the man was looking at me strangely before going back to playing with his child,the old lady was asleep.

I looked at the driver but couldn’t see his face because of the darkness,I shrugged and closed back my eyes. A few seconds into my rest I took the scent of something foul like decaying flesh,I covered my nose and realized the scent was getting stronger. I opened my eyes to realize the scent was emitting from the old lady next to me.

Flies came from nowhere and began surrounding her,my eyes widened as I pulled myself away from her and closer to the window. I opened the window to let some breeze in and for some reason outside was foggy,I literally thought we were in the clouds. I rubbed my eyes to make sure I wasn’t dreaming,but the clouds remained.

“All you not seeing that?” I yelled looking unto where the road supposed to be, but I could see no road,no houses,no street lights just fog. No one answered me and carried on like they were not even hearing me.

I reached out to the bus driver for there was no way he could see where he was going,but the driver’s sit was empty . The bus was driving smoothly however there was no one at the wheel. I screamed and panicked and told the others that they was no one driving but they didn’t seem to care.

Then the road became bumpy and shaky and I quickly flew upfront took control of the wheel and pressed on the brakes. The bus came to a halt and the doors automatically opened and I flew out,as soon as I hit the ground I realized I was at my village and the fog had cleared. Have a good night said the driver as he took off.

I was left shaking and confused,and up to this day no one believes me.

Review of the movie Maleficent Mistress of Evil.

So my niece and I went to see Maleficent..it’s Maleficent not magnificent yes got it,Maleficent II on Saturday October 19th at the Emerald theaters. Forgive me but I can’t recall what the first one was about so I appreciated the little re-cap at the beginning of the movie.

The proposal at the beginning is very touchy and emotional and sets the pace for a cliche fairy tale however when Maleficent shows up,played by Angelina Jolie,who I must say looks good,and I am happy for seeing her in a movie after a good break from the screen) you sense this is no fairy tale.

She brings a seriousness to the character and those high cheek bones,sharp eyes and deep collar bones keeps you looking. I admire her role as the wicked godmother who gets soft for her godchild.

Now the plot gets interesting when Michelle Pfeiffer steps in and plays a role I haven’t seen her in, a wicked Queen.I become tense at the dinner they get invited to and I agree when Maleficent gets angry and she steps back into her revengeful role of humans against creatures and once again her love for Aurora gets tested.

The fact that there are more like Maleficent is unpredictable and the war that happens has every reason to,it is acted out so well that you embrace the fairies and horned creatures and despise the humans for wanting to end their world.

This movie had me hating the villains and longing for their deaths which honestly takes a while.It keeps you longing for the end,because we have become a generation that’s kind of impatient.

The war scene is epic,emotionally exhausting but ends well. Angelina Jolie plays the part of a mother’s unconditional love for her child so perfectly that it causes her death.

I believe that’s the theme of this movie unconditional love and peace. Trust me it exhausts both meanings and brings the point across very accurately.

It keeps you interested and makes you angry but happy in the end.A must see for children but this is No fairy tale.
