11. Dreams and Farewells


Chapter Eleven:

Dreams and Farewells


        It was almost impossible to fall asleep after that, but I finally managed to do it. The whole night I was haunted with dreams that made no sense whatsoever. My dreams usually contained people that were close to me, but not this time. The people in my dreams were people I had never met before. In my first dream, there was a boy with blond hair and a purple shirt that stared at me with a grim expression before disappearing in a gust of wind. In another, a curly haired boy on a bronze dragon sped towards me. The dragon opened its jaws wide and I was swallowed in a blast of molten hot fire. Then, I was suddenly teleported to a garden. I was sitting at a round white table, and sitting across from me was a beautiful girl with feather woven into her chocolate colored braid. She flashed me a warm smile and then the dream changed again.

        This time, I was in an underwater castle. I was floating in the throne room, which looked to be made of various multicolored rocks. It was a breathtaking sight, and I nearly overlooked the boy on the throne. This boy had silky jet black hair that swirled around his face. In his right hand was a pristine, gold trident that seemed to glow brightly, lighting up the boy's face. His most important feature, though, was his bright sea green eyes that he regarded me with a strangely intense gaze.

        His presence and the whole atmosphere was oddly comforting, which was quite disorienting. I felt a tug at my heart like I should know this person. It frustrated me a great deal as I tried to figure out why this boy was so familiar. Before I could contemplate it any further, the boy raised his trident and, without taking his eyes off my, pointed it towards me. The water swirled around me like a cocoon, and I was thrust back into reality.

        I awoke with a start, and it took me a moment to compose myself. I had woken up at the perfect time, seeing as everyone else had just started getting ready for the day. I brushed away all my thoughts of the dream and started getting ready also. I changed into jean shorts, a turquoise tank top, and my black converse. I pulled my hair up into a ponytail, so that it wouldn't be a tangled, wild mess. I strolled out of my cabin with confidence and eagerness to impress the other campers so I could be accepted.

        I strode over to the Athena cabin and peeked inside. There were a few people I didn't recognize inside, and I knocked on the door to get their attention. Their heads swiveled towards me and I felt my confidence lower a bit. Holding my head up higher, I cleared my throat.

        "Uh, hi. I-is Annabeth in there?" I stuttered. There was a moment of silence before one of them answered.

        "No, she just left. She was headed towards the Big House in a hurry. You should get going if you want to catch up." the boy with chestnut hair said. I flashed him a smile.

        "Thanks!" I said and rushed out to find Annabeth. I jogged in the direction of the Big House for a couple of minutes before I spotted her. She was walking speedily towards the Big House with a determined look on her face. The look of hope on her face mirrored the look she wore on the day we met. I sped up until I reached her, and I tapped her shoulder. She turned her head towards me and smiled at me.

        I smiled at her in return and greeted her as we walked side-by-side. "Hey, what's got you in such a hurry?" I asked.

        "Oh, well there was report of a couple of halfbloods, and I think my boyfriend is among them," she blurted with happiness in her eyes, "I'm going to go pick them up."

        I gave her another bright smile. "That's great! I'm happy for you!" She thanked me, but I couldn't help but feel a sharp jab of sadness deep inside my heart. I felt happy for her, but I didn't know how I would be able to handle life at the camp with no one to guide me.

        I shake away all negative feelings and look more on the positive side. This was the chance to prove myself. Confidence replaces my sadness as I watch Annabeth walk into the Big House, and I wave at her one last time before turning around to face the new day.
