I have Dreams. Dreams which I can't explain. Dreams that feel so real, it's as if they are memories. Sometimes I feel as if I am awake, and it's happening in front of me, other times, I just dream of nothing. It's either The Dream, or just a blank. Something happened to me in reality. Something I can't remember when I have my eyes open; but when I sleep, relive it in flashes.

"Time and the hour run through the roughest day"

William Shakespeare

I heard the human turn on the shower, and knew I would have some time before facing her again. I relaxed, letting the pain wash over me.

I still hadn't been able to change into my ethereal form. For now, I was stuck in this mortal body.

I knew it was her fault. That human girl. Veronica and Jordan were right; she's speeding up my decline in health.

For some reason, she wastes me more than any other human.

Yet, for some other strange reason, I couldn't let her go out of my sight.

I placed the book and empty glass down on a glass coffee table, and slowly levered myself to stand, crouched as though I was carrying a heavy load.

I clutched at my stomach. Being in our corporeal form for too long effects those of us in the Unseen in a bad way. However, for me, it is far worse than any of the other Unseen. On top of the torturous pain of remaining in my human form for too long, I have the indescribable and complete agony that I suffer from when I am being wasted.

I limped across the room, my vision severely blurring. There was a kitchen area, glossy and white as though it had appeared straight out of a magazine. Elaine knew that I felt this extreme pain, and had stocked some human painkillers.

Though I loathed having to resort to a human medicine, it did reduce the pain minutely. I desperately searched through the cabinets for where she had left them.

Then I remembered. I'd left them in a small cabinet in my bedroom.

My energy was draining quickly; another downside to our human forms. I was clutching onto the edge of a cabinet, holding myself upright.

Suddenly, a huge wave of pain struck me between the eyes like a bullet, and I started to wobble on my feet. I clawed forwards with my hands, trying to stop my body from crashing to the ground, but I couldn't find anything to grip and knocked several china plates to the ground with me.

I smashed my head against the ground, and once again my mind went to sleep, hiding from the immense pain this body felt.
