14. The Stars
It's a pretty grey day. It's not too cold but you know. I'm walking through the camp. I spot Amanda, she's still watching Bellamy. She looks pretty frustrated. This morning I've been hearing everything that's happened. The girl who landed is called Raven. She's nice enough. Octavia was captured. By a grounder. And she says that he was nice! Nice? What the hell is she on about? They speared Jasper! I can't understand the nice part of them. Not one bit. It's been different in camp. Bellamy still has this "whatever the hell we want" idea. But that's just going to get us all killed. Octavia's fine now but the grounder who captured her isn't. They've taken him into the dropship. I see Eilidh being hurried into the dropship. About time her Prince Charming came and realised I've stabbed her. I keep walking. People are shouting. I don't know what's happened though. I see Octavia. She's trying to console Jasper. He's panicking.
"Grounders!" I yells. But there is no one here? Octavia looks exasperated. Jasper is sitting holding a stick now. He looks really freaked. I frown.
I follow her over to a table in the camp, "Octavia, what's happening?" I ask her, taking a mouthful of nuts that Jasper and Monty had been sorting.
"I don't know," she shrugs. I start to talk but I topple backwards. I find myself drenched in my own hair. I stand back up and take the hair from my face. Octavia no longer stands before me, instead my mother stands. I panic. My heart starts beating fast. She starts screaming. I feel like I'm being suffocated by her screams. I trip backwards and I'm lying on the floor. My mother has disappeared. I look up to the sky. It's changing colours. I try to stand again. A person grabs my arms and steadies me. It's my father. He's yelling at me, telling me I should have done something. I don't understand. I feel like I'm being compressed into a box. I try and break out. I can now see stars. They're dancing. What's happening. I spin around trying to get away from the stars. Everything seems blurry. It's dark and then light. I panic and run up to the nearest person.
"It's not okay! The stars!" I shout at the girl, "they're coming to get us!" I starts shouting even louder. In an attempt to escape this panic I step backwards falling onto the ground. The last thing I see is a grounder trying to pull me up. I close my eyes and fall into a deep sleep.
