The Mermaid Project

Hi my name is Kai.
I am 16 years old.
I was selected for the mermaid project.
It sounded exciting at first, but now...I don't know who I am.

18. The Dream

He's there.

And there.

He's everywhere!

Everywhere I turn he's waiting for me. 

Each door I open, he stands with that look. The look he gave when he laid me down on the bed.

Jessie.

I was running, just running.

The same sound kept echoing from the walls.

"I have feelings for you."

I kept running, but there was no exit. He would get me again. He would steel me with his glance, and I would be trapped.

"No!" I screamed.

"Kai!" I heard a voice. It wasn't Jessie's. It was a girl's voice. It was calling to help me. 

"Kai! Kai! Wake up!"

 

I woke up panting and sweating. Eve stood over me. She was shaking me.

"Kai are you ok?" She said.

"What are you doing here?" I screamed panting. She looked worried.

"I brought fruit." She smiled. I looked into her eyes. I knew Eve well enough to know that she wasn't here to bring fruit.

"Jake was worried about you, so he asked me to stay the night. He said you fell asleep almost right away. Who's Jessie?" She asked changing the subject. I must have been screaming his name in my sleep.

"An old friend." I said. I was really tired, so my lie was as obvious as daylight.

"Who's Jessie." She asked again. This time she was firm.

"Jessie Sidonikov." I said quietly. Eve's jaw dropped. She jumped on the bed and sat next to me.

"Sidonikov! This is like a crazy love triangle." She screamed.

"I never said anything about love!" I replied on the defence.

"Please, I heard your dream, and it's abvious that you like him! Plus, I don't blame you!" She screamed.

"But I'm team Jake! You two were meant to be...I could feel it!" She was clutching me.

"Who said Jake had anything to do with this!" I was starting to get annoyed.

"Please...don't try to tell me he has nothing to do with this!" She gave me a stern look.

"I...okay...you win..." I looked down at the covers.

"I KNEW IT!" She started jumping on the bed.

"Now, can I sleep?" I asked and crawled under the covers.

"No no no no no...we have to get to training!" She said as if she was my mother.

 I groaned. Loud.

Eve helped me get on my suit. I had a stomach ache and was sleep deprived from last night.

We walked for what seemed like an eternity. The closer we got, the worse my stomach ache became.
