Awake is the newest short story in the What I.F.? series Niina Ivy is working on. I promised I wasn’t going to spell this out because I thought maybe it was so obvious as to be silly, but now I can’t help myself.
These stories so far have been about denial – What Imaginary Friends? And curiosity – What if Imaginary Friends are real? And friendship – What if I don’t help my friend when he’s in need?
Did you have an imaginary friend as a child? What form did it take, and when did you outgrow it? Or did you outgrow it at all?
Tess has to make a choice. She can either deal with the fact that her imaginary friend from childhood, Buddy, is something real that most of the world doesn’t understand, or she can let herself deny a friendship. But why can’t she just accept it? Her best friend from childhood is back in her life. And he’s brought friends, and he needs her help. With a bunch of imaginary friends that have the potential to go insane and start messing with people’s heads – or worse – who needs enemies?
