I woke up tangled in my sheets, breathing hard and trying not to scream. It was the same dream I'd been having for weeks now. I was in a dark realm, I couldn't even see my hand in front of my face. I was alone and terrified in the dark when suddenly, I wasn't alone anymore. Whispers filled the chamber, and all I could see were the glowing red eyes of several people. Then, they would suddenly lunge at me, and I would cry out; it sounded like a name of some sorts, but I could never remember as this is when I would wake up in a panic. I refused to tell anyone about this,not because I didn't want to, but because I was scared to. Why, I couldn't tell you. After I finally managed to calm down, I fell asleep, with no memory of having any dreams thereafter.
In the morning, I woke to the sound of my alarm clock.
"Ugh," I moaned is despair. "You have got it out for me don't you? Waking me up to go to school," I complained to my alarm clock. Mondays, I despised them, especially when they are the first school day of the year.I laid in bed for another fifteen minutes until I decided I had better get ready for school, lest I wanted my mother yelling at me to get out of bed. I got dressed and brushed my teeth and hair, and then went to my jewelry box.
When I opened the drawer I found something I had never seen before. It looked like a male's ring on a chain.
"Strange..." I murmured to myself. I picked up the necklace and looked at it. It was strangely familiar, but it couldn't have been. I had no boyfriend. I let the chain slip through my fingers until the ring fell into my palm.
I was in a clearing. Bright light filtered through the trees and birds chirped and flitted to and fro. However, something, or rather someone, had my intention instead. I couldn't see them as they were behind me, but I knew they were there. Then, I felt them come closer and hands wrapped around my waist, as a voice whispered in my ear.
"Here, I want you to have this," he said, and gently clasped my hand and put the ring in my hand.
In my shock, I dropped the chain on the carpet. Where had that come from? I shakily picked the chain up again, careful not to touch the ring, and put it back where I found it.
"Best not to think of it Alex," I said to myself, and pushed the thought out of my mind as I finished getting ready and headed off to school.
