This Dream Catcher.

A normal human being dreams almost every night, but those aren't the only dreams they have. What if this one person were to accomplish both?

6. Not a place I want to be...(3)

“What’s your name?” He asked once it got quite, except for the things trying still attempting to reach us from the other roof.

“Shouldn’t a man say his name before a woman, just like you should never ask a woman’s age?” I questioned him, raising an eyebrow.

He began to laugh and then completely turned serious, “no.”

I scowled before deciding to answer him, “Maya, my name is Maya.”

He smirked and nodded his head, “nice name Maya, my names Nick.”

I nodded, “nice to meet you Nick, so what do you call them?” I asked him.

He gave me a confused look, “what?”

“Well back before any of this happened” I tried to act sly as to not give away that I haven’t even been here this whole time, “my friends and I all gave different names.”

“Names?”

“Yeah you know, my friend called them dildos, just because…well just because he was bored, my other friend called them dicks, maybe I should get new friends, anyways I call them walkers because of the show the walking dead.” I said several lines quietly to myself, but mostly directed them towards him.

“Um we call them Z’s.”

“Z is for zombie…I like walkers better.” I told him.

I stood up, “so, anyway to get out of here?”

“There is a ladder that leads directly from the roof, to the ground, but if you slip” he makes a cutting motion at his neck. I nodded, raising an eyebrow.

“Which way?”

“Follow me.” He walked to the opposite side of the roof and slowly and cautiously moves so he’s lowering himself onto what I hope is the ladder.

“Come on then” He says quietly as he begins lowering himself.

I walk over and looked over the edge, immediately walking backwards which caught his attention.

“What?”

“Maybe I should just…stay here” I said quietly.

I heard him sigh as he begins climbing up again until he can just see me, “look, those Z’s or walkers, whatever you call them, can run through those UNLOCKED doors any second, so I suggest you hurry up.”

I continued to give him a stare of reluctance. He sighed once more, “Look, if you slip, I’ll catch you the best I can, good side of this, the fall will kill you, and you won’t be ripped to shreds ALIVE.”

I considered this for a bit, dazing off into my thoughts.

“COME ON” He nearly shouted this time.

I jumped and decided to go with him, “no need to shout” I mumbled.

“Just come on” He climbed down some more to leave me space so that I could get on the ladder.

Once I got on, he continued climbing down, occasionally waiting for me as I took my time, no doubt was I annoying him. He stopped climbing causing me to looked down at him in confusion.

“I’m making sure there are no walkers before climbing completely down” he said.

“Okay.”

“It’s clear, come on, stay quiet.” He jumped down and as quietly as I could, jumped down as well.

I thought we did awesome, so to congratulate myself I shouted out, “woo!”

“Idiot!” Nick shouted, just as walkers ran across the corner.

“Fuck! I’m sorry!” I shouted back, just as he shouted out, “Run!”

We ran the direction opposite of the walkers and tried to dodge as many as possible, there weren’t many, but it scared me to no end. I mentally shuddered every time my shoulder brushed against a walker as they tried to bite down on me, or grab me by my clothes so they can rapidly munch off my flesh.

I was beginning to get extremely tired of running, so I tried to slow down just a bit. Bad idea.

A walker grabbed my hood and brought me to the floor, climbing on top of me, trying to bite my delicious, juicy, amazing-alright I’ll stop now.

I let out a scream and tried to push him off of me. He was then shoved off me and I was picked up by Nick and began running again.

“Are you insane?” he asked as we ran.

“I’m sorry okay?” I said back to him, I really needed to exercise more. I had no energy what so ever.

I then realized I had left the bat on the roof top I had climbed up to when I left the room, “aw man” I whispered.

We had reached a forest when we finally decided to stop. We laid on the floor, completely out of breath. I felt a stinging on my arm and looked down at it. My face growing increasingly pale by the second.

Nick noticed my expression and looked at me, “what? Are you bit?” He stood up quickly and grabbed a knife from his pocket, holding it out as protection.

I was not bitten, no, but I was scratched, I didn’t know if it was the same. I really hoped it wasn’t.

“Not bitten, scratched. Does it mean I’m going to turn?” My voice cracked, telling me I was about to cry.

His expression softened and he sat across from me, still holding the knife.

“Scratches are bites, just in smaller form, also means it’s going to take a longer time to turn since it’s so small.”

“But no blood got on me or saliva! Isn’t that what does it?” I was panicking, tears streaming down my face.

He shakes his head, “apparently not. I’m sorry.”

I sniffed before going to lean against a tree, “I’m going to sleep alright. Kill me when I turn.”

He sighed, “alright”

Nick’s POV

I sighed, “alright” damn, and just when I was beginning to like her too.

I heard soft breathing and looked at her, smiling sadly. I would hate to kill her, but I guess it’ll just have to happen. I had to get back to my group soon. I stood up and looked at her, deciding to leave her so she could turn and I wouldn’t have to kill her.

Just as I took my first step, I saw a blue light from the corner of my eyes.  I saw it coming from something on her chest. I walked over and crouched down, reaching for the necklace around her neck.

I took it out of her shirt and grabbed onto the body of the dream catcher, but then dropped it immediately as it burned my hand.

“What the fuck?” I mumbled. The glowing necklace began to glow even brighter, it brightened immensely causing me to cover my eyes, and then a loud sound that resembled thunder happened and the light was gone.

I looked at where the body once lay, but was now gone.

3rd person POV

Nicks eyes grew dim for a mere second before they turned to their original color. He had a confused look upon his face.

“Where the hell am I? Wasn’t I on a roof?” He continued to question himself until he saw figures running towards him from the street.

“Fuck”

He stood up and ran.

YES HE FORGOT ABOUT MAYA. THAT'S WHAT HAPPENS AFTER SHE LEAVES A WORLD.  THE PEOPLE THAT ENCOUNTER HER FORGET ABOUT HER COMPLETELY, BUT WHAT THEY HAD DONE WITH HER AS A COMPANION IS STILL PHYSICALLY THERE. IT PHYSICALLY HAPPENED. ANYWAYS 4K WORDS IN HERE, SLIGHTLY LONGER THAN MOST. I DECIDED I WILL MOST LIKELY NOT ADD PARTS BUT JUST FINISH THE COMPLETE CHAPTER NEXT TIME. IF IM TAKING TOO LONG, PLEASE TELL ME LOL. I'LL TRY TO HURRY IT UP.
