Awake

 

It has come Demon, the day of your demise.

You have no power over me child, you can not defeat me.

It is not my power that will return you to your prison, but the Light of a thousand souls.

You have no power and no means to gather such power.

I will not need to, only channel it.  You have spent many millennia in you prison, concentrating so much on your escape, so much on the bad that have happened in this world, but not on the good.  Not on the good that has come from the bad.  You yourself have forgotten the words from the book of Deredru, foretelling your return and you demise.

You talk of the Light.  The Light has left this world.

There you are wrong.  A gathering of the Light of a thousand souls, in sorrow for the loss of ones that gave their lives.  You paid heed only to the great wars that scarred this planet, that ended family lines, but not to the days that followed.  Days where the losses were remembered, days called Remembrance Day, Veterans Day, Armistice Day, National Day and The Day of Peace in the Flanders Fields.  This day is that day, the day of Light where not a thousand, but millions gather in sorrow to remember the ones who have been lost.

This can not be.  Your gods have turned their backs on you, you can not do this.

   

They have not turned their backs on us, only given us more freedom to choose our paths.  Some will turn down the wrong one, but more of us everyday day make the right choice and it is those that will keep us safe from you.

I can not believe.

 That is why you have failed.

 

 

     I awoke scared, surrounded by Nurses and a Doctor trying to comfort me.  I was confused, not knowing what was going on.  My heart ached with the feeling that Spooky was gone.  What had I done, Spooky was one of my closest friends and I had killed her.

     Just then, Spooky and Yumi came walking into the room, I could feel a tear roll down my cheek when I saw them.  They both smiled and Yumi asked me how I was doing, I replied that I was feeling good, but didn’t know what was going on.  Spooky told me they had not heard from me for some time and with my parents being away, they couldn’t ask them where I was.  They had both come over to my place and found me lying on the floor of my bedroom where they then called an ambulance.

     It turns out; the demon had tried to trick me to believe I had killed Spooky, her twisted thoughts painting a picture of Spooky lying dead in her own blood.  The demons hold on me had not taken over me fully like she wanted me to believe; she was only set free on Halloween, but had not regained her powers.  She needed me to give up and thought by showing me Spooky dead that the loss of a friend would weaken me, but it only made me stronger.  My will to fight back grew with the thought that she could take more of my friend away from me.  The demon has been returned and nobody knows about it, or they no longer know about it.  I have trouble remembering the details of what has happened, past days drawing a blank in my memory.  I don’t know if I am loosing what has happened or if it was even real, but for some reason I seem to remember something about a book.  Maybe I should take a trip to the library and check something out to read.

Imusak

It has started, I will take the ones closest to you and your heart will finally fall allowing me full use of my power.   I won’t let you do this, I can’t let you.  You have no choice child, you have no idea on how to stop me.  That is where you are wrong.  I know… I know now.  You forget, you are a part of me as I am a part of you; I know how to defeat you.  You know nothing!  I control this body; you can do nothing to stop me.  You have no means of gathering the light for your use; no means of orchestrating a thousand souls in giving the light.  Think that if you wish, you will be defeated before you can even have the power to start to wreck havoc.  Foolishness…

Dream?

     Ever since I read that book and found my name written in it, I have been feeling like things have changed.  I just seem to be more distant from everyone now, not hanging out like I used to, even when I am with my friends, my mind tends to wander.  I have even missed whole conversations due to it with Spooky joking that I was probably thinking of some TV show or something, but I wish I was.  It is like I try to be there, but something keeps pulling me away.

     I have also been having nightmares recently, I wake up trying to quickly sketch what I dreamt.  I have visions of my friends in pain, being tortured and dying slowly.  I see them on the ground screaming out in pain and a city on fire behind them in the distance.  I then notice someone standing over them laughing, but when I try to get close to see the person, they disappear leaving me standing in the middle of my friends all reaching for me.  I have woken up each time crying, but I find myself crying less and less with each nightmare.

     I will stand in the bathroom staring at the mirror, my clothes covered in sweat, reassuring myself that I was awake, trying to convince myself to go back to bed.  I was afraid to close my eyes again at first, sitting up the rest of the night till morning when I could go out and get my mind of off things.  I still need to let myself know it is only a dream because it feels so real, but I have come up with the courage to go back to sleep. The dream doesn’t seem to come back for the rest of the night.

     I can feel my heart sinking more and more everyday, hurting so badly some days, a hurt that just pulls at my breast as if my heart was being torn out.  I now feel I am in a constant struggle with myself, not knowing what to do or how to handle it.  Even things around me seem to be changing, I am not sure why, but things I used to find that mattered to me before are now loosing my interest.  I just don’t know, but I think this dream has something to do with it. 

     Like always it seems, I finally decide to head back to bed while telling myself that luckily it is only a dream.

Beach Party

on the boat at the beach

Spooky has been spending most of her free time at the beach surfing. I hope her studies will not suffer. She came to me the other day saying I should take a break away from my studies and go to the beach and later I saw her and Lan making plans for a beach party.

Friday came around and it was such a beautiful day I thought about
skipping class, but some how I managed to pull myself out of bed and get there. To my surprise I did not see Waff or Spooky in the classroom. Lan whispered to me that morning during before class that they all planned to have the the beach party today after school and told me to pass the information on. She said she had come prepared for the beach, looking around seeing we were alone, she lifted up her skirt showing off her bikini. She then said she planned to ditch her last class and head straight to the beach before all the good sun was gone.

I spoke with Kasumi in the hallway while getting my books out for
biology class, my locker is right next to hers and I started telling her
about my morning, no Waff or Spooky, Lan’s plan to skip PE, the beach party, and about a strange dream I had of her turning into a cat and started to hunt mice, haha, I had a good laugh about that last one. I was telling Kasumi I might ditch PE to leave for the beach early and hinting to her that she should do the same, though she seemed not to hear, in fact she seemed to be in her own dream world ever since I mentioned my dream to her. The bell rang and we ran off to our next class.

The day went on forever and I kept glancing at the clock, when PE finally came around, I changed into my shorts then went out to the field I could not see Lan anywhere. Our instructor told us to jog 3 laps around the track, on my first lap I jogged slowly letting everyone pass me, and then looking both ways I veered off to the right and went through a hole in the fence, and kept on jogging back to the dorm in order to change into my swimming suit. I have a bathing suit in the Locker room at school, but it is not the cute bikini that I wanted to wear for the beach.

Lan and Yumi in the water at the beach

When I finally got to the beach, the first person I saw was Lan, she was laying down soaking up the sun rays. I asked her about Spooky and Waff, but she said she had not seen them. I tried calling them on my cell, but got no answer. Lan and I walked along the beach taking in the surroundings, it was a tropical paradise, a place to forget about everything. As we walked I saw a seal out on the ocean, it was moving closer to the shore, I soon realized it was a person surfing, it was Spooky.

waff diving

Lan and I started to wade out into the water waving to Spooky, then Waff popped his head out of the water, he was wearing snorkeling gear. We all played in the water, I love playing in the water especially with friends, and with the hot sun burning down on us, it felt so refreshing.

with spooky

Kasumi eventually showed and then Napili. Napili had been the last one to come, she was going to ditch class with Lan, but she had to meet with one of her teachers after class.

cute snapshot beach

We all played at the beach and in the water until the sun went down. It is so pretty when the sun goes down and gets so orange reflecting on the clear blue water. Once the sun set, it got cold real fast. I wrapped my towel around my body and we all hurried back to the dorms joking and laughing all still so excited about the fun we had at the beach.

Exchange Student

Spooky, Waff, Lan, Napili, and Yumi 
Spooky, Waff, Lan, Napili, and Yumi

The other day, one of my friends Lan was introducing us to one of the newest students, well, she is actually an exchange student, she goes by the name of Napili. She has fiery red hair and looks so different from the rest of us, you can easily spot her in the classroom not only because of her hair but because she still wears the uniform from her own school. I think the two are becoming best friends, Napili seemed inseparatable from Lan. I did not quite catch where Lan said Napili was from because from he corner of my eye I saw Kasumi walk by, kind of dream like or as if she was in her own little world. I called after her wanting to introduce her to Napili, but by the time I looked out the classroom door, she was no where to be found.

Normally this would not bother me, Kasami is like that sometimes, all lost in a day dream, but today it did. The night before I had this strange dream, normally I would not have remembered my dream except this one I woke up with my heart pounding, all sweaty and tangled in my sheets. I remember in the dream some kind of scary door with weird symbol all around it. I had been holding Kasami’s hand she was trying to walk through the door and I was holding her back because I was afraid of what was in there and Kasumi seemed clueless. Then the door turned into a cliff and she was falling , I was the only one keeping her from plummeting off. There was no way I was going to let go and slowly I felt myself being pulled over the edge, this is when I woke up.

I rejoined the group and started to listen to the advice Waff and Spooky were giving Napili, I could not keep myself from laughing as they described some of the odd habits the school’s principle has. It was fun to hang out, but in the back of my mind I worry about Kasumi and hope she is safe.
