New Dawn

Emma and Melanie have returned from Narnia, but they aren't the same person they were. Things have changed them, and they won't be the same, and how will they face the real world knowing that they will never see Patten and Holter again.

This is the second book in the New Series the last book was New Kingdom, so if you haven't read that book, you should start there. This is a Narnian Fanfiction - thank you.


5. Cute Guys, Awful Guys, and a Whole Bunch of Zach


Keeping myself busy helped me forget. Months had passed. It was almost Christmas. I had made the basketball team so practice and games kept me busy.  Emma too joined basketball but we still found time in our days to spar. We are known as the beast sisters on the court because we can dribble, pass, and shoot with our eyes closed. It all seems so easy compared to our Narnia "games".

Emma and I also find time to go shopping. I know she isn't into it but she comes with me because I love shopping and it makes me happy. Emma has started to smile a lot more and neither one of us mention the fight or you know who. It was Christmas break and we were out doing last minute shopping. I bought Grandma a beautiful statue of a lion roaring. For Grandpa a black fedora. As Emma was trying on clothes with Tomi I bought her a pair of black riding boots. As I was scanning the isles for something for mom I heard a loud laugh. I could recognize that laugh anywhere. It belonged to Zack.



Tomi kept laughing at something while I was in the changing room. She had me trying on a long sleeved grey sweater, with a cream long skirt with a silver belt. It was cute, I had to admit, though totally something I wouldn't wear, but for her sake I tried it on. Stepping out of the changing room I saw Tomi talking to a guy. He was leaned up against the wall, trying to look cool. Tomi was standing in front of him laughing at something. I walked over to the two. "Hey! Emma! Your alive!" She yelled grabbing my arm.

"Yes, I'm alive." I said in a monotone voice. Tomi smiled and looked at the guy, who was checking me out - ugh.

"Emma, this is Tanner, from across the bay! He came to visit his elderly grandmother, and guess what?" She screeched like a bat. "Ain't he cute!!?" She whispered in my ear.

"Sure, if you like a kiss up." I said.

"Oh come on Emma! He's totally your type! Tall, dark, and very handsome!!" I rolled my eyes.

"Well hello there, I've herd so much about you Emma. And may I say, you look hot." Tanner said, I frowned.

"No thank you." I walked back to the changing room and got my scabbard, and walked back out. Taking the sword out of its case, I pointed it at his chest. "I don't like to be called hot." Tomi grabbed my hand and lead me back to the dressing room.

"Emma, Emma, Emma, Emma!!! What are you doing?" She yelled.

"I don't like him, Tomi." She rolled her eyes.

"Sure you don't. He's just not Patten, that's why." She said grabbing the sword out of my hand and putting it back into it's scabbard. "And why did you bring your weapon anyway? Your sister doesn't do anything like that!" She asked.

"Because I have a hard time trusting people, Tomi. I've been through too much." I said giving a fake smile.

"Okay, okay. But I'm getting those clothes for you. I'ma going to go pay for them. You keep them on, put your other clothes in here." She handed me a bag, and then swiftly took the tags off of the garments. I rolled my eyes and complied, walking out of the changing room after her.



I don't know what was taking Emma so long, she never liked to go shopping for this long. I ordered a chocolate chip mocha from Starbucks and sat at one of the tables close to the door and read a new book I bought for myself. Again I heard Zack's laugh. He walked into the Starbucks with two other girls and Tony. I tried to turn so he couldn't see me but he walked over and leaned on the table.

"Hey, whacha reading?" He waved his entourage away.

I took a sip of my mocha and set the book down, "The Best of Me, by Nicholas Sparks." I gave him my best fake smile. He sat across from me.

"Is it good?" He leaned forward.

"I don't know. I just got it." I glanced at the store entrance and saw Emma and Tomi, with two bags each, walk out. I stood up and politely said, "I'm sorry but I must get going if I want to catch my ride." I strode to catch up to Emma. He followed me.

"I can give you a ride."

I rolled my eyes, "Sure." He led me to his car but didn't get in. He came to the passenger side and came really close. I tried to open the door but he pushed it shut. I gently tried to push pass me but he held my arm tight.

"Why don't you just be normal for once. Come on." He leaned in to kiss me but I punched his gut. "Ow! You're gonna regret that." He came closer but not in the same way as before. He grabbed my arms and shoved me against the car. Before I knew what was happening he was trampled to the ground by another guy. The mysterious guy was punching the crap out of Zack, whose face turned black and blue and was covered in blood. Slowly the punches stopped and Mr. Mysterious stood up.

"That's what you get for disrespecting my lady!" I immediately recognized the voice.




I looked away as Melanie exited the mall with Zack. What is she thinking? I slowly followed Tomi out of the mall and toward her car. "You know! I didn't expect Melanie to go with Zack." Tomi said as she unlocked the car and got into the front seat. I walked around to the passengers side and got in.

"Me either." I said looking at Melanie and Zack as they walked to his car. Zack was walking behind Melanie, checking her out.

"OOOO!!! That guy is sooo cute!" Tomi yelled.

"Ew! He's your brother!" I yelled hitting her arm.

"No! Not him, the other dude, following him! Man, I never saw him before." I looked away as she mentioned 'cute guy' "Oh, come on Emma, just look at him! He would totally be your type!"

"That's what you said about Tanner, and all the other dudes you introduced to me today." I said rolling my eyes.

"What is Zack doing?" Tomi asked. I turned my head to see Zack pushing Melanie up against his car, and then the 'cute dude' pushing Zack to the ground, and started to punch him. I cracked a smile, but knowing that was wrong got out of the car, getting a little worried. Tomi did the same and we slowly started to walk towards them. The person stood up, and Melanie looked surprised, wrapping her arms around the guys back. I was very confused, and so was Tomi. "What's going on?" She asked. 

"I have no clue." I answered. 

"Emma?" A deep voice said from behind me. I froze mid step. It can't be. "Emma is that you?" The voice said again. I slowly turned around to face the person. He was tall, with toned muscles, and shaggy silver white hair. A smile was spread across his face. 

"Patten?" I asked, tears sliding down my cheek. 

"Yes." He closed the distance between us in three large steps, and then his arms were around me, his lips on mine. Butterflies rolled through my stomach as I wrapped my arms around him. Patten smiled against the kiss, picking me up and spinning me in the air. We broke the kiss, because I was laughing too hard, and the tears were streaking down my face.       

"How are you here?" I whispered, kissing him again. 

"I have no clue, Emma." He said, setting me back on the ground. 



"Holter?" the man turned around and looked at me, his face stern, but his eyes soft.

"Melanie?" He asked. I wrapped my arms around Holter, holding him closer to me. He kissed my forehead, embracing me. I got up onto my tippy toes and kissed him. "It's been 100 years!" He said breaking the kiss. 

"What?" I asked.

"It's been 100 years sense you left, and now I am here, with you." He said kissing me again. I was shocked. 100 years had passed in Narnia, and Holter still looked the same. 

"What's going on?" Zack asked sitting up. 

"This is Holter, my boyfriend." I said happily. 

"What?" Zack asked in surprise. 

"You heard her." Holter said wrapping a protective arm around me. I looked up into his eyes, never wanting to leave. 

"Thank you." I whispered.

A bark echoed through the parking lot, and I turned my head to see a humongous dog running toward me. I got onto my knees to hug the massive creature. "Finel, oh have I missed you." I whispered in her ear. She barked in reply. Holter stood there, his hand extended for me to take it, and I did, returning to his arms. I looked around the parking lot, searching for Emma, to tell her the good news, when I saw Patten and her kissing. I smiled, taking Holter's hand, and lead him to Emma and Patten. They ended the kiss right as we got there. 

"Emma!" Holter exclaimed hugging Emma.

"Melanie!" Patten said hugging me. 

"Wow! Okay. This is even better than I thought!" Tomi said, standing a few feet away, staring in awe at the four of us. 

"Oh, sorry, Tomi. This is Patten. Patten, Tomi, Tomi Patten." They exchanged hello's then Emma turned to Holter and I. "Tomi, Holter, Holter, Tomi." Again they exchanged hello's. 

"Okay, I had my doubts for a moment there, I thought you might have gone insane, but clearly not." Tomi said, her eyes wide looking at Patten and Emma. 

"Would someone please tell me what is going on?" Zack asked walking up to us, again Holter wrapped a protective arm around me, connecting me to him. 

"Oh, yeah, sorry, we should have told you. This is my boyfriend Holter, and that is Emma's boyfriend Patten." I said cocking my head mockingly. Zack rolled his eyes. 

"Yeah right! No way these two super models are your boyfriends!" He said, which made both Emma and I laugh and hug Holter and Patten tighter. 

"Face it Zack, they outrank you." Tomi said laughing, petting Finel, who took a liking to Tomi. 

"Yeah, so, I bet you can't be that great. Can you play sports?" Zack asked. 

"What are sports?" Patten asked confused. 

"You can't be kidding me! You two have British boyfriends, who don't know any sports!" Zack laughed like this had to be some kind of joke. 

"British?" Holter asked. "What is British?" 

"We will explain later. For now, lets get out of the cold." Tomi said, clearly knowing what was up with Patten and Holter. We all piled into the car, which Holter and Patten found to be quite scary, and headed off to Grandma and Grandpa's house.
