I've never had a dream like this befor. It was dark, everything was black. I turned and walked for hours and when i called no one responded to me, only my echo. After hours of walking around i found a mirror and what I saw was horrible. It was me.. but i wasnt awake. My eyes were purple like someone gave me 2 black eyes. I was so pale. My blonde shiny hair was a dull looking yellow. My brown eyes were sad, dull brown, like a tree after it rains and it has no leaves to protect itself. I gently and slowly touched the mirror. Then it shattered.
I woke up startled and confused. You know the 5 seconds when you wake up from a dream and you dont know how you got to where you are? I was having one of those moments. I was in my living room, on the couch but I was laying on Tyler. I carefully looked up at his face, trying hard not to wake him. He was sleeping, of course the sky outside was a deep dark gray. He had his arm around me and his head was laying on the arm rest. He looked so peaceful it hurt. He looked like a God sent down from heaven. I gently lay my head back down on his chest, looking at the TV clock. It was 3 o'clock in the morning. I slowly closed my eyes and went back to sleep.
I woke up to a groaning noise, like the sound of someone who doesnt want to get out of bed. I knew Tyler was up, then i felt his eyes on me and he chuckled. I sighed and opened my eyes squinting in the sudden brightness of a new day. After my eyes adjusted i turned my head up to look at him. He was smiling down at me. I could tell he just woke up because his eyes were a deep,deep blue.
"Good Morning." He said chuckling.
"Morning." I said yawning and smiled. "How'd you sleep?"
"Pretty well actually yourself?" He chuckled.
"Pretty good. What time is it?" I asked as I looked at the TV. "Wow its already noon." I said shocked, and sat up on his lap and streched.
"Yeah. I guess I should go home." He said sitting up,keeping me on his lap.
I sighed. "Yeah I guess." I said standing up.
"I'll be back later. Then we can decide wat do to." He said as he stood up smiling.
"Ok see ya in a bit." I told him, giving him a hug.
"All right. Later." He said hugging me and turning to the door to leave.
I yawned and streched again as I heard the door shut, after he left I went to take a shower and clear my thoughts. Why did I have that odd dream? Why did I black out yesterday? 'Ok one at a time'I told myself. 'Why did i have that odd dream?' I tried to think of an answer but came up blank. 'Ok next question. WHy did i black out yesterday?' After thinking and thinking i still didnt have an answer. "Damn it" i said softly to myself.
I decided the shower wouldnt work and got out and got dressed. I grabbed a pair of Jeans and a red camisole and white top. Walking downstairs my headache came back. I clutched the railing so hard my skin turned whiter than it usually is. Taking deep breaths helped but i slowly walked down the stairs. 'What is wrong with me?' I thought, 'THis is not normal.' I finally made it down the stairs when the front door opened.
"Hey." Tyler said coming through the door.
"Hey." I said cringing as the door shut. It felt like a million fireworks went off all at once right in front of you.
"Are you ok?" He asked coming towards me.
"Yea I'm fine." I lied.
He saw right through that. "No your not. Where's your mom and dad?" He asked walking me to the couch.
"Probably left for work already. I never heard them. They must be really mad at each other. They must have not seen us..." I said trailing off. Instant silence. And this silence was awkward, even for Tyler.
"Yeah about last night...Clair.."
"No its ok. Nothing happened right?" I said a little embarassed. If he knew about how I had a big crush on him it would ruin our friendship.
"Clair I have to ask you something."
"Ok, shoot." I said smiling, trying to make it less awkward than it already is.
"Clair. You and I have been friends for a long time." He began.
"Yea since the beginning of this school year."
"Well Clair I-" He said but the phone ringing on the wall cut him off.
"Come on." I said walking carefuly to the kitchen to answer the phone. "Hello?" i said into the reciever.
"CLAIR WERE THE HELL HAVE YOU BEEN?" the voice boomed.
"Dad?" I asked?
"YES! WHERE WERE YOU LAST NIGHT?" he boomed. My father wasnt happy.
"I was sleeping on the couch." I replied. Trying hard to keep my voice steady.
"THATS NOT A GOOD ENOUGH ANSWER! WHEN I GET HOME YOU BETTER BE HOME!" he boomed then the line went dead.
