I awoke with a start and didn’t realize where I was at for a moment. The bright sunshine was shining through the window while Catre was sitting at the foot of her side of the bed. I felt lost thinking that I should have awakened somewhere much darker and I dread to go back.
“I am glad you are back, Zava.” She chimed and placed a cool cloth on my four head as she looked like she hasn’t gotten any sleep at all. I tried to say something but then I realized that I am back into reality and I can’t speak at all so I grabbed my notebook and started to write my answer on a new page.
“Catre, I am glad that I am here and alive.”
I felt around to find that every bit that I felt was soaked through with sweat and that my cheeks were wet with the tears that had streamed down my face while I was asleep.
“I am too. You scared me and I started to wonder if I should have wakened you several times last night.” Catre sighed as she walked into the bathroom to come out with several clean towels.
“Sorry.” I wrote and I can see that I had truly scared her since her pupils were wide as she place the cloth onto me to soak some of the sweet off of me.
After she was done I wrote down a quick thank you and stood. The room spun around myself a little but it quickly situated itself before I took my first step which was a bit shaky. Every step was with Catre by my side just in case I fell or wanted my notebook. I walked into the bathroom and could see myself in the mirror for a moment.
My hair was in tangles from the nightmare while my night clothing stuck to every last section of my bare skin as my eyes were quite puffy and my skin was pure white instead of the darker pale that I normally am.
I quickly tuned on the water and splashed it in my face for a bit thinking that it would get rid of the darkness that pledged me since all I could see and hear was myself calling to let Mistress go like I was still caught in my own nightmare.
“Zava, are you ok? Do you want to talk?” Catre asked and I placed my finger saying that I was saying yes for the first part while I shook my head no for the second.
She placed a hand on my hand calmly to silently say that if she ever needs me she would be there for me. Yet, how are you supposed to say that you think you saw a vision that would put everyone in a panic and her on edge since it already placed me this way.
“It will pass.” I tell myself as I quickly got myself into my routine for the day thinking that there is no way that deems can form reality in a way can they?
